I have heard the term "window licker" a few times in recent past. I never knew what it meant, and thought I would be showing my uncoolness if I asked. I do believe I have finally discovered what folks were talking about when they used the term "window licker". What I did NOT realize is that all of those folks own South African Boerboels! Wow! Small world eh?
As I was watching the gallons of slobber drip down my sliding glass door, I was reminded of a fact sheet I read before buying Matani. This fact sheet was an integral part of our decision to purchase this particular breed. The author of that 'fact sheet' was a dumb-ass who OBVIOUSLY has never had a South African Boerboel living in their home with them. I shall now clear up some common misconceptions about the S. African Boerboel for you.
1. South African Boerboels very rarely bark.
My Ass! Have you ever tried to talk to me on the phone? Call... and listen to my dog!
2. South African Boerboels don't shed.
My Ass... again! This dog sheds more than any other dog I've had the pleasure of sharing my bed with. ICK!
3. South African Boerboels don't produce the mass quantities of drool that other Mastiff breeds do.
MY ASS!!!!!!!!! You saw the pictures right?
One could easily understand why I felt the sudden urge to strangle the shit out of the author of that fact sheet while I was mopping up all of slippery, slimy puppy drool.
