Walking Tails

As 2014 is coming to an end, Dad is thinking about Essex and Deacon.  Essex came home with Dad on New Years Eve, so he thinks about her more.  Most of his memories of Essex and Deacon make Dad smile.
As we were barking with each other and Dad mentioned that myself, Essex and Deacon have all had different walking tails.  I asked him to explain and he told me that Great Auntie Essex typically walked with her tail down.  While Uncle Deacon walked tail up, and that his tail reminded Dad of a "crook" the hooked staff that a shepherd used.  It reminded Dad of a sashimono, the small banners the samurai used when they went into battle or the Winged Hussars of the Polish-Lithuanian Calvary.  As for me, my tail is in between.  
Essex Was Tail Down
Uncle Deacon Was Tail Up, Like a Shepard's Crook
My Tail Is In Between
My Walking Tail
Dear cyber-paw pals, what is your walking tail? 

Dog Speed,

Reilly is a tail up guy but Denny is a tail down. It is funny though - Reilly always had hi tail down until about two years ago - then he started carrying it up
