The Royal Kuvasz


The present day Kuvasz developed in Hungary where the breed served as a guard to royalty in the 1400s, prior to becoming popular as a livestock guardian [and highly skilled food beggar, drooling over tiny morsels of bread]...



...Today's AKC breed standard describes the characteristics required of a dog whose function is to protect its flock and drive off predators: large, moderately boned, sturdily built, well muscled, not bulky or lethargic...

Hah! Hah! You do your breed proud Biggie Z! Protect tummy and sleep first :-). If you have time, swing by and make a guess on my doggie quiz.

Sheesh, why didn't your dad just put the whole tray on the ground. You must be starving.

Nice to see your fuzzy face.

Slobbers,
Mango

Glad to see you again, Biggie!
They forgot to include in the breed description "huggable white teddy bear who loves his humans"!
Your pal,
Sedona

I, too, find the head-under-the-arm move quite effective. Almost as effective is the head-on-the-knee with soulful eyes move. . . well, at least until you start drooling! ~ Victor

Personally, I'm a big fan of unobtrusively trying to jump on the table to just steal the food. My mom says this makes me a "little shit". ~ PeterPan
