I'm just SO glad someone has started a Doggy Thread..


Yes everyone, post your cutest doggy snaps and we'll all lean back from our screens and go.... Awww, isn't that lovely!

Doesn't matter if you can't post a picture right now...
Just let us know all about your doggies' proclivities - and please, spare no detail.

Fluffy is four and three-quarters years old and Caesar is almost seven.
Caesar's birthday is coming up next week and I've organised a special surprise for him.

Fluffy's not been quite herself for the past couple of days and I'm quite worried.
Just last night, on two occasions, people walked past the house and she didn't raise the neighbourhood.

Caesar seems to be very keen on the bitch down the road at the moment - I cant think why, she's not in his class.

Anyway, it's coming up to dinnertime now and I'd better go prepare their meals - because they're looking at me.
It's steamed chicken breast au gratin for Fluffy and T-bone sirloin (medium-rare) for Caesar - he likes the bone, you see.

They're both off to the pet grooming salon tomorrow and I'll take some special pictures to show everybody.

Back in a while. Don't go away, I've got lots more to tell you!

Nah.
I've had dogs (and cats) all my life.

Actually, I've got a Border Collie - he was given to me because he couldn't cut the mustard in the mustering game.
It's a tough world in the outback.

I think he may have developed an inferiority complex from it, though - he keeps trying on dogs twice his size

We have a very good relationship - I understand him and, more importantly, he understands me.

He was the soppiest and most docile animal you could wish to meet. However, having been raised in an all-white suburb of Cape Town, the non-reflective folk gave the house a wide berth when they saw his teeth. In fact, he never even so much as growled at anyone.

Thanks DazDaz, he is hard to photograph, firstly 'cos he is quite dark (we've just moved to Cornwall, so the salt makes him more shiny), and secondally, he never keeps still.

Am trying to work out how to fix a "go-pro" to him, the results are not good, due to his natural boingy, boingy ness. :-) Keids and Mrs gingernut have said that pop rivets aren't allowed.

When I was only six my mother bought a Welsh Corgi.
Taffy arrived by carrier at the front door.

But what really sticks in my memory was what was
written on a big label stuck to the top of the box -

I've a son who has two Smithfields, Wendell and Percy.
You have never seen a pair of dogs so addicted to ball
fetching. They NEVER tire.

The Smithfield is a medium sized, shaggy stockdog traditionally used to herd cattle and sheep. Most modern Smithfields are found in Tasmania and Australia's north island, where many are still used as stockyard and farm dogs. The breed is recognized by the Tasmanian Working Sheep Dog Association. It is also acknowledged in various historical records.

Originating in England, the "Smithfield" name was given to these dogs as they were common sights at the Smithfield Market in London. The Smithfield Sheepdogs would drive cattle and sheep from the countryside into the city in order for the stock to be sold at the market. Smithfields are a distinct breed of working bearded collie.

Sentimental as we are, Mrs. Flybiker and I went to the vet. to bring home the ash of our 14 year old Dachshund.
Being caught in the doorway by surprisingly many costumers that day, I noticed this boy sitting luckily unknowing of his destiny: His owner was put on the street without any shelter or income to support the dog :-(
I got the irradical thought of taking him for at short second whereafter I couldn't help thinking that any destiny after we might have leaved would be caused by my (lack of) decision!
It was never ment that we should have a male; big(ish) or long-furred -dog, but he had become the reliable; cuddling and always happy company between our walls!

BBC News - Arrest after Bartley Green 'carjack' CCTV released (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-31125442)

If you play the clip, you will see how the dog basically defends the poor lady in question....anybody who can be bothered should view the Beebs site and get the full replay as shown on last nights news.

That said, you would have thought the meat brained gronk in the estate would have stopped, rather than swerving past.....and driving off.

Just because a dog (http://www.vetstreet.com/dogs/) has 25 times as many olfactory receptors (http://www.vetstreet.com/our-pet-experts/why-does-my-dog-sniff-me-so-much) as a human doesnít mean he has a superior idea of what smells good.
Pungent as they are, animal feces ó especially those of wild mammals like raccoons, badgers and bears ó clearly offer dogs a scent sensation they relish (http://www.vetstreet.com/our-pet-experts/why-does-my-dog-eat-poop).
Our dogs (http://www.vetstreet.com/dogs/) probably canít fathom why we scream when they come home smelling like, well, poop, but there may be some biological rationale for the disgusting tendency.
It has been suggested that dogs (http://www.vetstreet.com/dogs/) may be predisposed to this behavior in order to mask their own scent, so they can throw predators off their trail and prey off their game.
Here's another thought: Maybe heís rolling in it to prove to you, his beloved, how impressive he can smell when he really works at it.


(from vetstreet.com)


If you want worse, one hell of a lot worse, consider the sloth. He likes to get down in latrines and dunnies (worse than the worst toilet in Scotland)
he rolls about in it. .. . he eats it. . . (this was on QI . The collective moan of disgust from the audience at the graphic pictures was all you would expect)

Our black Lab - Dexter (or Rocheby Spinnaker to give him his posh name) - loves to eat rabbit poo, rolls in fox shit, eats his own poo if given half a chance (as long as it's still warm), and in his four years has eaten two of my wife's leather gloves, six of my socks, innumerable washing up sponges, but is now recovering from an operation to slit open his stomach to recover a large microfibre cloth which refused to be excreted from either end of his body. Love him to bits though!

Dogs 'can tell difference between happy and angry faces' reported here by the BBC (http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-31384525).

But that doesn't help very much if you're merely a dog on a web forum like this one where you don't see any faces. I wondered whether they could ever get cats to participate in a similar test. So I asked the pudicat. She replied "You woke me up just to show me this thread again? JB and yerself are full of faeces! Wake me up when it's dinner time."

You said anecdotes as well:
Back in the 60s we had a smallish lab cross called Sam. We lived in Greenwich (south London) and brother in law lived in Lee Green - about 6 miles away, through residential areas, across Blackheath and through more residential areas and main roads with lots of London traffic etc. Sam had only been to BIL's house twice - both times by car and after dark at night. Occasionally Sam would manage to escape from back garden and one day did so and we couldn't find him despite searches, phone calls etc. Next morning phone call from BIL to say Sam had been found early that morning sitting on his front doorstep waiting to get in. Can't imagine how he found his way there. Sad end to tale is that on one of his escapades (back gate left open by neighbour) he got onto the railway line and was killed by a train.
