    Frisbee Time is back!

    I just spent the last half an hour picking shit out of my dogs arse because it was obviously too much for her and got stuck half way. Being the world's fluffiest dog made this task more fun. Fucking yay for dogs! >:(

    You should have said they weren't pictures of you picking crap from your dog's arse. I was afraid to click!

    Looking good, though!
  • Deleted user 30 April 2013 19:53:30
    Haha oh yeah. You still dared to click though! :D

    The dog caught his first live squirrel yesterday. Quite a horrifying experience, tbh. I arrived just as the poor thing took its last breath. :(

    Now Jerry has a new back-yard nemesis...



    Sorry for the blurry pic. I'm no pro.

    @mowgli is he wearing a rucksack in some of those pictures? Or does he have his own paper round?

    Saw this a while back and saved it:

    Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish wolfhound named Belker. The dog’s owners, Ron, his wife, Lisa, and their little boy, Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.

    I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.

    As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

    The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker’s family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.

    The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives.

    Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, “I know why.”

    Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. He said, “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life – like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?”

    The six-year-old continued, “Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long

    How cool is this? A free bedtime story for dogs read by Simon Callow, to help them relax around Bonfire Night.

    Also thought that this guide to socialising kids with dogs had some good ideas, despite the Infomercial design of the website.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I played the bedtime story for my dog and he didn't even react.

    I think you have to repeat it over days and it somehow calms them down. I dunno.

    I think he would have to talk more about treats and walks to get any kind of reaction from my dog.

    I never thought I'd post in this thread, but my family finally wore me down and we adopted a retired greyhound last week. She's awesome.

    The last few days have been spent painstakingly trying to persuade her and the cat to become friends, but I think we're making progress.

    Congratulations, Dr.Haggard! Good luck to you and your new bundle of joy!
  • Deleted user 28 August 2013 18:17:13
    Congrats dr. It took a while for my old dog and cat to get along but soon he started to learn that she, the cat, ruled the house and after that they loved each other.

    Re above, my dog fucking loves fireworks. We have to take her out when they are on as she is up at the window watching them and gets really excited. Bloody strange.

    She's not even afraid of the booming? My dog is indifferent to fireworks, but is afraid of loud noises. He runs for the hills whenever we turn on the vacuum.
  • Deleted user 28 August 2013 18:44:16
    Nope, she seems to get more excited by it. I've had a dog before so I know the difference between being worked up because they are scared and worked up because they are excited and this was definitely the latter. Might be because she was so young but hopefully it Is a good sign for later years. My dog seems to have a problem where she is completely fearless though. Nothing fazes her and she will run up to the biggest Rottweiler and bop them on the nose and jump about them. It is bloody cute but I cant help but feel a bit of fear is required for her own safety!

    Being unafraid is no bad thing, imo! I guess in this case it's your job to teach her what not to do rather than the other way around, which I'd think is easier.

    @Dr.Haggard So jealous! I'd love a greyhound / whippet.
  • Deleted user 28 August 2013 19:40:31
    Yeah it is a good thing, as I've seen plenty of scared dogs and it isn't nice. Makes it harder for them to socialise etc. I just know that if i didn't have her on a lead she would be trying to wrestle with bears and playing fetch with sharks.

    A quick picture as it has been a while.

    Jeebus, I couldn't imagine trying to get my Lurcher to befriend a cat.

    She looks soppy here, but she's a hunting machine when we're on walks (and nearly dislocated my arm earlier in pursuit of a squirrel whilst she was on the lead).

    Dog Owners - does £300 for a mongrel puppy (will have had some jabs) sound reasonable to you in this day and age?

    Our whippet terrier cross cost us £50, so no, that's the sort of price I'd pay for a pure breed.

    I'm not even a dog owner but that does sounds like quite a lot?

    Should be able to pick up a mongrel pup from a shelter for a donation and the cost of vaccination.
