    And Lassie was played by a boy. (Better coloration on a male Collie than a female.) Made the scene where Lassie was nursing puppies a bit awkward.

    Lassie also had training.

    Also the females apparently shed their coats, while the males did not. LOL, I can imagine, “what the heck am I supposed to do with these things?!”

    Actually, the dogs have manes, the bitches don’t. You are right, though – Lassie was a boy! Every one!

    I had a little dog once, that would jump through a hula hoop. It was the only thing she ever learned to do, but she did it very well!

    That’s funny. When my cats had kittens it was the male that took over nursing duties when the female decided that enough was enough. Nothing was coming out but the kittens sure tried.

    The males have a fuller skirt (lots of fur by hind quarters) & generally a fuller coat than the females. Lassie was a sable rough collie. (I grew up with pure breed tri-colour male collies).
    BTW, male rough collies DO shed their coats! Not as bad as shepherd/lab cross though.

    Lassie could never be broken from chasing motorcycles, tho.

    They’ll nurse whether anything comes out or not. I remember when we brought home our first kitten a calico named Shanna. She would “nurse” on our boy poodle just sucking his fur. It was the cutest thing.

    It’s called a ruff, not a mane, and bitches do have them—we had a purebred female bitch when I was a kid, and she had a lovely full coat & ruff.

    Hold out as long as you can, Biscuit. Once they know you can do something, they expect you to do it all the time.

    Anyone see Letterman’s Stupid Pet Tricks last night?
    As usual, he motormouths enough to distract the whole deal, but the last pup showed he could do his stunt, paying no attention to Uncle Dave and his rattle-headed chatter.
    Not only once, but 3x and then ignored Dave when exiting !!
