Gentle giant mountain time
The rear assembly is powerful, muscular, and heavily boned. Viewed from the rear, the legs are straight and parallel. Viewed from the side, the thighs are broad and fairly long. Stifles and hocks are well bent and the line from hock to ground is perpendicular. Hocks are well let down. Hind feet are similar to the front feet. Dewclaws should be removed.
In Taiwan , another popular name for panda is the inverted dàmāoxióng ( 大貓熊 "giant cat bear"), though many encyclopediae and dictionaries in Taiwan still use the "bear cat" form as the correct name. Some linguists argue, in this construction, "bear" instead of "cat" is the base noun, making this name more grammatically and logically correct, which may have led to the popular choice despite official writings.  This name did not gain its popularity until 1988, when a private zoo in Tainan painted a sun bear black and white and created the Tainan fake panda incident .  
Being gentle with children, sturdy enough to handle the heavy-handed pets and hugs they can dish out, and having a blasé attitude toward running, screaming children are all traits that make a kid-friendly dog. You may be surprised by who's on that list: Fierce-looking Boxers are considered good with children, as are American Staffordshire Terriers (aka pit bulls). Small, delicate, and potentially snappy dogs such as Chihuahuas aren't so family-friendly.

“My dog food is a special combination that’s dry and low-fat,” Ward, 67, told The ENQUIRER. “We go through 600 pounds a day to feed our dogs, and they only have to go to the vet once every three years, just for their regular shots!”
"We bought Osa, a spayed female, at age 2 months in 2008. She was put right in with three ewes and a ram. We now have thirty sheep, including 11 lambs born since late November. This photograph is typical of her behavior regarding the ram and one or two other ewes. She will hold this pose for up to 30 minutes or so, sometimes with eyes closed, often with eyes open, and it seems very Buddhist. Do any other Great Pyrenees folk know this behavior or have seen anything like it? This is the world's coolest dog."
