Marley and Me Will I see it?
Tuesday, December 16, 2008
That dog was a sight during the winter in New York! She would race to the top of a piled up "snow hill," sit, then slide down on her rear. I certainly would have loved to see that.
Daisy was a fine example of the Old English Sheepdog breed, sired by the canine star of "Please Don't Eat The Daisies." She later mated with a Grand U.S. and Grand Bahamian Champion who had sired many champions. What an awesome litter that was!
I'll tell you about the pups some other day. My friend has a thick "puppy album" of just the first six weeks of the litter's life.
My Mother often tells me that the film, "Please Don't Eat The Daisies," is hilarious. I suppose I should see it in honor of Daisy. She was a character!

Who Put Your Dog In T,he Pool?
I personally do not like swimming pools, and do not allow my dog in them. To me, dos and swimming pools do not mis. However my dog knows how to get out if he should ever fall in.
I met two people who had their dogs drown in pools because they failed to show them the way out.
How do you prevent this from happening to your dog?
Put your dog in again and again, then coax him in the direction of the steps. Do this over and over until he goes out the right way without your prompting.
It may save his life someday...

What do you want?
What do you really want?
A well behaved dog, or an out of control dog?
Face it. No one wants their dog to pee in the house. We want that done outside.
No one wants to have their house torn up or their flowers rooted out of the ground. We want the dog to tear up his own toys and dig in a digging box.
No one wants a dog who will not come when called, or one that has to be on a leash all the time. Imagine having to drive around the neighborhood all the time to get your dog. Or having to put the lead on when it is cold, instead of just being able to let the dog out.
And Nobody wants and aggressive dog. That is a time bomb.
After looking at this, wouldn't you say it is worth it to put the training time into your dog?

How do you stop dog jumping?
You can usually solve the problem by blocking the dog's access to the person he wants to see until he calms down.
At other times, you need to take the dog out of the room again and again... again and again... until you achieve your goal.
He will get the idea. Being calm brings reward. Jumping dog does not.

How many people can't? - Do You Have An Out Of Control Dog?
But I did the other day... Gatsby lay at my feet and did not make a sound. Refreshing.
Afterward, I could not help thinking of how many of my clients cannot even enjoy a little reading, family fun, or TV because their dogs are so out of control.
Owning a pet that has been worked with is a stress reliever by a lot. They are coherent, soft to rub, loving, forgiving... just plain warm and comforting and good company.
But stress goes through the roof with a dog who runs the house.
Is your dog out of control, or a joy to be with?
Who rules the roost in your house?

Lassie and Old Yeller?
The original Lassie was named Pal and was abandoned by his owner.
Old Yeller was named Spike. He too was abandoned, but he was left in an animal shelter.
Lassie was bred large to look big next to a child. Old Yeller was so big that one of his human co-stars rode him like a horse.
Spike (Old Yeller)was in a lot of the Lassie episodes. He also played Petrache in "A Dog Of Flanders." Fabulous movie dogs, both.
For two dogs that started life being abandoned, I say they did rather well!
