|@psychokitten He does, I've said it for a long time. He's a lhasa apso (although I have my doubts about his pedigree) but I'd much rather he looked like Wicket than this... http://www.dogsindepth.com/nonsporting_dog_breeds/images/lhasa_apso_h03.jpg|
My dog left me a present, which was a dead squirrel that he must have found in the yard while he was relieving himself. It was pretty disgusting, but I appreciated the gesture.|
I thought that was a cat thing?
Not sure if anyone noticed, but a lot of these "chicken jerky" treats are being recalled. I noticed "Waggin' Train" brand had recalled and this article says Milo's has done the same.|
Watch for where your dog's food comes from! I don't see that it says in that article, but those recalled chicken treats were made in China.
He loves the snow, can't get him back indoors!|
He won't be handsome for long if he doesn't stop chewing stuff he's not supposed to.|
Anything plastic needs to be destroyed in his mind.

Dog, cat, sooner or later you'll be fighting your gag reflex and praying the marigolds don't have a leak.

Pebbledashed? That's a new one! |
My dog had diarrhea on our carpet just after we had it put it. I thought it was vomit, though, and nonchalantly grabbed a paper towel and picked it up off the floor.
I quickly realized it wasn't vomit...
Last year my dog went out for a shit in the snow. Being a small dog the snow went up to her arse hole. As she's quite hairy, and there was no drop, the poo didn't detach properly and just clung to her fur. I think she must have been saving it as it wasn't a tiny one either. She literally had one gloriously formed log of poo attached to her backside.|
Anyway, she came back through the cat flap (yep, I trained my dog to use the cat flap), right into the living room, and just had one great big shake to get the snow off.
Unfortunately, the poo riding pillion just exploded like a cluster bomb. It went everywhere: ceiling, walls, floor, TV, furniture. It was fucking discussing. Before she had a chance to start running round the house 'signing' everything, I picked her up and took her straight to the bathroom to shower her. It was fucking disgusting, I had to pick the remaining poo out of her fur.
Anyway, once she was clean, I spent the rest of the afternoon expunging my living room of dog shit. I thought I'd managed a good job until, several hours later, washing my hands in the downstairs's loo, I looked up at the mirror and saw a poo bindi right in the centre of my forehead.
Probably got a few disgusting cat stories as well.
|BAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!!!! 'poo bindi'|

A couple of weeks back, we saw a border collie looking panicked on the side of a motorway at around 8am. As they are clever dogs we convinced ourselves he'd be fine and find his way back off it (at this point we thought he was lost rather than dumped) but 9 hours later, he was still there and still panicked so we stopped and picked him up. Two weeks later and after contacting various local bodies (gardai, vets, sports clubs, etc) and putting up numerous ads, it looks like he won't be claimed. |
He seems to have been a working dog as he had never been on a leash before (he thought he was being tied up for the day the first couple of times) and has a ridiculous amount of energy. Despite living on the edge of a small city, which probably isn't ideal, we are thinking of keeping him. Unfortunately, he doesn't care for chasing balls/sticks so we're having to take him on 2/3 walks per day in hopes of using up some of his energy. His cleverness is apparent from learning his new name quickly and a few commands and we were thinking of going to dog agility classes to keep his mind (as well as his body) well exercised. It'll probably be good for us too as this is our first dog.
Has anyone any experience of these classes?
Or any other advice for high-energy dogs?

Good man for caring for him. That is how we found our first dog. We are going to take our dog to agility classes when she is older as she is so high energy. It is the reason we've been taking her to puppy class. Meeting all the other dogs and following commands just drains her.|
Border Collies are insanely clever so a lot of mental stimulation in the way of command training, as they have to pay attention, will be good. Sit,stay,come here etc. all require focusing on you.
Cheers mowgli. He has already learned those basic commands (or, more likely, translated them from the previous owner) so we are moving on to practising "heel" commands in the enclosed/shared garden area in the back and it's going very well. Everything goes out the window when there are other dogs around though. Also, he was cowerng so much when we first put him on a lead that we were delighted that he soon was looking forward to it, but now he nearly chokes himself to get wherever we are going all the faster. We've learned a bit in the last couple of days and he's already responding well to the combination of doubling back whenever he pulls too hard and treats whenever he's doing just what we want.|
Although I wouldn't expect anything less from EG's best dog.

Sounds like your dog is adjusting super fast.|
I've heard of dogs that bark at furniture when it's slightly out of place. Others can't figure out stairs.
Looks like you've got a clever one.
|I might have got a bit ahead of myself. I needed to drop something off at a friends house last night and decided to walk and bring the dog as it should only be about 30 mins each way. He was a bit of a disaster as he lost all concentration because there was a good deal of traffic (I think he wants to ' herd' the cars) and was pulling hard in all directions. Loads of doubling back and not very many treats at all. I found a quieter way back and he was much better but the journey took two hours in total instead of one. Still, we're all learning together and I wasn't expecting it to be easy. Must bring him out again now, hopefully he'll remember the good bits from last night.|
