Is this considered a "gay tail"?


Recommended Posts

I would not think so because it comes off the back straight and then curves at the end. Sugar's tail is like that and when I groom her she can wrap it around my finger in either direction almost like she has a double jointed tail.

Well I looked in vain for a photo of my parents dog Odin the German Shepherd who has a gay tail.... So off the Scottish Terrier Club of Ameria's website, a very good example of a 'gay' tail.

Ewwwww! I don't like the gay tail. It looks deformed! I do recall reading about the tail in the Cairn Terrier literature, and the tail is not supposed to curl over the dog's back. This is a fault if you are showing the dog. So I would say your dog's tail is just about perfect. Cricket's tail is exactly like Barney's in the way it is held.

All creatures great and small, the Lord God, He made them all!
