I don't speak fluent dog, but it was something about "stop pruning and take me for a walk"!;)

Our big dog. Flash.

5th May 2009, 11:22
Our big dog. Flash. Is "Flash" his name? Or to explain the iridescent whiteness of the eyes? Or does your camera have an 'exposure problem' with all the black & white sploges? Is he a Dalmatian?

We should be told. (Luvverly wall-paper btw) :ok:

PS. Drapes, please adjust the lighting for your future Cody videos. One side of his face is always in shadow...

PPS. Prefer cats, but mainly because they can defecate properly without constant intervention... ;) :uhoh:

I'll bet there was a bucket and mop not too far away either!:)

Get two, they halve the amount of running around you have to do with them as they exercise each other and can go on for hours.

Nice nail varnish Whols, been doing that for long?:}

5th May 2009, 13:30
Probably a tad boring, but this is Tali's first video and she had only been in the house for about 14 hours... What a weird-looking carpet / rug though? Do the squares depict 'ancient Chinese writings' therefore possibly explaining Tali's reactions (it's OK to bite the foot that feeds you on 'this' square but not another...)?!

More than anything else in the clip, it's the lack of healthy and resounding growls that worry me. Sort of reminds me of the 'silence of the lambs'...

5th May 2009, 14:30
It's cheap lino that the previous owner put down. I haven't done anything about it yet as I intend to put down a stone floor when we finish the rest of the house.

Just as I stopped the video the little bugger decided she was tough and growled at the knotted rope she was shaking.

Our Helitack unit has two dogs who travel with us, Zoe & we just adopted Murphy who showed up at our base at about 4 weeks old--we think he was dumped there:




5th May 2009, 17:14
Flash is his name, Leo chose it. He is a full pedigree Dalmatian. He is a rescue dog though. We've had him about two months or so and he's settled in brilliantly. His best friend is our collie x, they love dashing around together before settling down to sleep. The Heinz 57 despairs at the pair or them.


(The wallpaper, was put up by the previous occupants, oneday it might get changed, more likely we'll move first. :} )

Bryn has come a long way in the past year from this - six weeks old and still on the farm
Eight weeks old:
nine weeks old and his first BAeA Aerobatics Contest at Elvington
Four months old at Wellesbourne for another Aeros competition:
Did I really fit in that? Five months old.
Six months old and all dressed up (at the bride's request) for a wedding.
Nine months old and opening his presents on Christmas Day
A year old and looking for ducks with a friend.
Two weeks ago and another BAeA competition, this time at Breighton. He had had enough of playing football so took it, pushed it under the car then sat in front of it to stop me getting to it. :)
It was hard work keeping those judges in order:

Snippet re our Lab and water.

Normally Labs love to get into the water. However, ours, as a small pup, fell into the pool between edge and pool cover, and totally panicked.
Since when (she's now ten), no way José!

She loves getting splashed totally soaking wet, but getting in the water, absolutely NOT. The one good thing about it is that at least we don't have a big hairy muddy-pawed beast competing for space when swimming....

No, she is full grown. If she was standing up you could see that she is twice the size of the Malamute. Now our male Great Pyrenees, Ona, was half again bigger than she is, he was huge.

Here is a picture of her standing up, I'm holding her and I'm 6'5".


9th May 2009, 16:51
What a beauty, Con! I bet she's more than a five minute comb & brush job though.

Not in any way criticising your photo, but I wonder why doggy photo's often have 'green eye'? The colour of their blood is red, like ours, so how does this happen?

You know what, I really don't know. I've wondered the same thing.

What a beauty, Con! I bet she's more than a five minute comb & brush job though.

Thank you. However, I must say she is the most stubborn dog I have ever seen. But I also have to say I have never seen a dog that is more gentle with young children and babies. We have friends with young children that come over and these kids, from around two to five range, crawl all over her, pulls on her ears and tail, she just lays there loving every second of it.

I though our wolf was great with kids, but the wolf could not hold a candle to the her.

(Hum, hold a candle, where did that come from I wonder. :p)

Dogs and many other animals have a structure in their eyes known as the tapetum lucidum, which assists with low-light vision. The tapetum works by reflecting light inside the eye, which is why some animals have bright eyes when lights are shone at them in the dark. (deer/rabbit in the headlights) Humans get redeye because light bounces off the blood vessels inside the eyeball; we don't have tapetal reflections as we have no tapetum.

Tapetum lucidum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapetum_lucidum)

And there you have it... often see cats at night when driving just because of this... last night saw an opossum sitting in the road... ugly thing...

Cant remember exactly now think it's supposed to be six weeks after their jabs they get to meet others of their kind and walk the wider world,

12th May 2009, 15:31
Yersh it's summat like that. Therefore she's still confined to a small area for the moment. :ok:

(apparently it is okay for her to be with 'known' dogs if they are fully vaccinated - so we had a dog to stay with it's owners over the last couple of days. But we're still not letting her up into the top grassed garden - lots of foxes and badgers and diseases up there.)

13th May 2009, 10:26

She is adorable.. Dumb question, but what breed is she exactly?


13th May 2009, 11:26


She's a Border Terrier bitch.

and this is, hopefully, an image of what we'll be walking the Somerset Levels with in a couple of years' time!


Yep, as a lot of PPRuNers will know, the 'next dog' is going to be an Irish Wolfhound. :ok:

More Talivision please Rads.:)

13th May 2009, 14:39
Re Irish Wolfhound... do you know what you're taking on?

Maybe not the most lazy and indolent dog in the canine world, but certainly there in the top ten.
Apart from the sheer size, it's a perfect apartment dog.
I kid you not. Ex-BF of my daughter had one, so I speak from some experience.
Given the choice, his idea of evening walkies would have been from the front door to the nearest lamppost.. and straight back.
He took a very dim view of being obliged to walk around a few blocks at least.


13th May 2009, 16:03
Afternoon all! Mr K and self have just returned from our afternoon inspection of a nearby park - mizzle means, apparently, that smells are enhanced so we mooched from one clump of grass, bush or goalpost to the next!!

I have mentioned in the TRAB thread that I have been watching some Shiba puppies on a webcam (they are now 7 weeks old) and this is the latest video from the breeder in the Netherlands, showing them going out in public for the first time... its fab!!!

<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/WReS46uePQA&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/WReS46uePQA&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I did :ok: Its a combination of video and stills of the puppies at a local high street and then at a nursing home :)

13th May 2009, 16:12
Hi ChristiaanJ - this upcoming Wolfhound will be my third one.

I wore the last one out on a walking holiday to the extent that he refused to leave the holiday cottage on the third day. He just kept looking away when being called.

He would also refuse to go out for a pee if it was raining. Would just go to the door, look out, harrumph and go back to bed with very severely crossed legs until the rain stopped or it all got too much!

Fantastic, soft, gentle, loyal and brilliant with kids and other dogs.

13th May 2009, 16:14
Forgot to mention - - - - horrendous, room-clearing farts when your (so-called) friends feed him beer and/or curry!!!!!

Re Irish Wolfhound... do you know what you're taking on?

No, I don't, but.... He has had a couple before in his life, the last one of which was very well known to a lot of people on here. :ok:



Sorry Wholi - crossing over on posts here! :\

13th May 2009, 16:24
I can see the video Radz.

Nice vid Brocky, a bit of it reminds me of taking last Wolfhound into Hitchin for his first "town" visit. He really did NOT like traffic, so I sat on the kerbside for about 45 minutes just stroking him and telling him it was fine until he stopped shivering and relaxed. He got a treat and some water at the café I got a cup of tea and a very cold and sore arse!!!


13th May 2009, 16:58

They seem to favor breeding long legged Terriers now,one disapproves of this fad,the long legged JRs don't look right to me,although they supposedly call the long legged ones by the posh name of Parson John Russel Terriers,I remember a judge on the Terrier shows we used to attend telling if they ever got JRs into Crufts it would be the ruination of the breed.

14th May 2009, 12:21
To my small knowledge, Borders have always had reasonably long legs as they were bred for the hunt and to have the ability to jump etc?
More here. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Border_terrier)

But agree with the oddness of the long legged Jacksie.... just doesn't look right!

tony draper
14th May 2009, 12:26
Well the very word Terrier means Earth dog, meant go underground to hunt down the prey in their lairs.
Nephews two JRs were long legged one got used to it,still undocked tails on JRs look strange,but again one would get used to them as well.

Cockers can be a bit 'one man and his dog' too.

Chap I know has one that treats his wife with utter contempt, never obeys her, and if the dog's alone in the car she isn't allowed in.

14th May 2009, 14:46
Well Chap is the pack leader, so Chap needs to educate the dog, and it would only take a few minutes of his time.
