Hey everyone, to avoid highjacking Dick's threads any longer :D, let's talk Gable Dodge and all his descendants! If you have a sibling, offspring, or just an appreciation, please share. Pictures, remembories, love, share it here!

I'll start--my beloved Johnny was a son, he had that "famous face" that I can see in a lot of other offspring. Beautiful red fawn coat, deep soulful brown eyes, little white tips on the tail and toesies. The only sabling he had were some dark hairs on his ears and tail. And he would carry that bottle-brush tail in a hook, canted to the side, that you can see on Gable Dodge in a video on YouTube. Johnny loved people, a true love-bug kissy boy.

My new boy, Gino-Gene-Eugene (Eastnor Rebel), has GD on his dam side via Lonesome Cry. He's a beautiful shiny black boy with white and with ears that go :bunny all the time. I've noticed he does cant his tail to one side, too. He's a happy goofball that I am working with to get his anxiety and shyness under control.

Gable Logan is a great-grandson(dog?) of Gable Dodge, born April 7, 2010 and still going at 9 yo now. Didn't win as many races as great-grandpa, but still can do amazing stuff, like this headstand:

If I'm interpreting the data correctly, Jenny is a great granddaughter of Gable Dodge. His son, Dodgem By Design, sired Jenny's dam, Brandi Rocks. Jenny certainly has her sire and grandsire's enormous, origami ears.

Piper.  My beloved Piper The Perfect was a son of Gable Dodge.    The gorgeous eyes.  The sweetness of his nature.

I think these are the famous Downing ears.

People were drawn to Piper as if he was magnetic.  He made friends with kids, with people who were afraid of dogs, with residents at my Mother's nursing home.  Most people we met walking wanted to pet Piper and I'd always tell they that of course they could. but that he WOULD kiss them. Of all the dogs I love, he is the one who has the greatest hold on my heart.  He used to look into my eyes and I'd tell him he was "my one".  He still is.

At certain angles Piper looks just like Rocket!  The only thing missing is that Rocket's eyeliner also had a little line on each side of his eyes that looked like he was wearing glasses. :lol Piper has those lines too but Rocket's were darker.

Lila is a Dodge Em by Design daughter.  She's got regular ears, but she does have sableing, super plush furs, and those big soulful eyes. And she's the sweetest thing ever.

These greys look soo much like my brindle girl!! Piper especially, OMG! Could be the twin of my grey.  She is the sweetest thing too.  I am so lucky to have her. Her sire was BD’s Grayson who is the son of Dodgem By Design.

Do any of your dogs’ noses slant to the left? Jenny’s does. I wonder if it’s hereditary or due to an injury (although there is no evidence of one).

Both our angel VooDoo and Whiskey (half brothers) are grandsons of Gable Doge by his son Gable Oscar.  Gable Dodge babies seem to inherit a double dose of sweetness and loveableness!  They are very people oriented and do seem to draw attention to themselves wherever they go!

And, OH!  Those Gable Dodge eyes!!!!!  :beatheart:beatheart:beatheart

Are the "downing ears" where one ear tends to go horizontal and the other vertical? If so, Logan has that trait as well. Both ears go straight up if he is really excited or concentrating, but if  he is attentive but more relaxed only the left ear goes up, the right ear is horizontal (so it would be opposite of Piper in your photo).  Here is a shot showing it:

Thanks everyone, such beautiful pics and words! Johnny loved to roach, anytime, almost anywhere--he never got the hang of it in the car a la Sweep. Teeth hanging out, such an active dreamer he woke himself up multiple times. He stole all the beds and couches he could. But if the cats got there first, I would get the biggest, saddest eyes; he would NOT evict the cat himself.

I won't say Johnny was all sweetness and light, he had the SNARK and knew how to use it. People, dogs, cats, if you were rude, he told you so. I was on the receiving end, too.:blush If he felt Gino was laying too close to him, not even touching, it would come out. Or on a road trip, it was from BOTH "MOM HE'S TOUCHING ME! MOM HE'S BREATHING ON ME!". But those two boys could walk together, sniff the same pee mail, get wrapped up around my legs, and I wouldn't hear a word.

rsieg, I think that is the Downing Ear--one up and one sort of "L" shaped.  There was a great post about Downing  and his quirky ear here on GT years ago.  I've searched for it but can't find it, so we're left to trust my understanding of the term unless someone knowledgeable chimes in.

I love that Piper and Rocket share "The Look"!

Mercury is too!  Dodgem By Design sired his dam, Striking Sheila.  Merc was born DKC Dave. :puke  He ran just one season and retired to his rightful place on the couch.

Jeter (aka Mac's Palmer) is a Gable Dodge grandson via Gable Ton.  He is extra handsome and extra sweet.  But aren't all greyhounds?  :)  No quirky ears or quirky tail, although his bottlebrush tail should be registered as a lethal weapon.
