Do we have a Random Dog Chat thread?
 
We've got cats, rats, ferrets and possibly others I don't know about. If we haven't already got one, I reckon we should have a random doggy chat thread too. :2thumb:

I'm new to having a dog, and some of the daft things he does constantly amaze me!!

Meet Buster, we're told he's a a Jack Russell Chihuahua cross. You can only hope it was the dad that was the Chi!!

You wouldn't think that adorable little thing is actually a bundle of destruction in disguise :devil:

He's perfectly capable of covering the ENTIRE living room carpet with bits of chewed up tennis ball and doggy toys within half an hour!!

Couldn't live without him now he's here though, luffs him to bits :flrt:

What have you guys all got? And what sort of things do they get up to to drive you up the wall or to make you smile? I've seen threads about some people with puppies...all I can say is you must have the patience of a saint!!

Christie_ZXR 01-07-2012 01:27 PM

I just did :D Where's your doggy pics?

Yuri's lovely, big bundle of fluff! What made you choose the name? I like it. :)

DavieB 01-07-2012 01:33 PM

He's a russian black terrier, and Yuri was a russian name lol, it was between Stalin, Ivan, Lenin (although ruled out due to the celtic manager) and Yuri.

Over the last few years there've been a few random dog threads that haven't lasted the course.

This one died in January 2009 http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forum...at-thread.html

This one died in January 2010 http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forum...at-thread.html

And this one died in May 2010 http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forum...at-thread.html

but happy to try and keep this one going!

I much prefer Yuri over your other options, Davie

And now the requisite pictures of my PITA dog - PITA being "pain in the arse" cos he is, although he is getting better!!!

2 days after we got him when he was 11 months old.

Should that not be PITA dog Eileen :p

I'm really broody for another dog (can men get broody?) Yuri is so happy playing with other dogs I think he'd love a friend. Cant afford another RBT right now though. I may get one at xmas time.

PPVallhunds 01-07-2012 03:18 PM

Heres mine, took 2 years of waiting for waiting to get her se is a swedish vallhund. i was hoping for a boy and was going to call him fabian but mum only had 2 girls so called her Fay. She is destruction on paws! she destroyed a kong when she was 11weeks old, we can only get her toys for large dogs and she still destroys them. :devil:


The day she came home

2 weeks later destroying the garden
https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...91707604_n.jpg

Her first trip to a beach (but she is banned from that beach as every time she goes there she gets sick)
https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...40595573_n.jpg

At 5 months
https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...01719185_n.jpg

and 2 months ago
https://fbcdn-sphotos-a.akamaihd.net...31937797_n.jpg

Dont have any reasont ones as we had to qurentieen her so not taken her anywhere, it turned out her puppy vacs didnt take and she had no imunity and caught parvo (pritty sure form the beach), but she is all better now, stopped shadding the virus and now revacinated and covered for everything except distanper for some reason. So she ia allowed out again and need to be revacinated with another brand again in around 8 months. Shes also accident prone and reasontly twisted her leg.
I never get normal pets.

feorag 01-07-2012 03:27 PM

Did you do a titre test this time to ensure the vaccine worked??

A friend of a friend breeds Bernese Mountain Dogs and she vaccinates her puppies and then titre tests and she has found that the vaccination hasn't worked and so re-vaccinated, sometimes it's taken 3 sets of vaccinations to get a good antibody reading. After the first year's booster she doesn't vaccinate, she titre tests every 2 years and the antibodies have always been good, so no need to booster.

Yeah they tested her just befor sending her home which said no imunity to any but parvo (but that was expicted as she had just gotton over it) so revacinated and tested again and test came back as covered for everything else except distemper. Spoken to a few vets and advice is not to revac again as she has had 2 (so 4 doses) in 9 months and would worrie about over vacinating and causing an autoimune prob, and as vets arounnd here and by the breeders in england havent have a case of it in years my vets never had a case, one is llanelli said non in last 15 years, and one in england says never that they can rember, the testing lab also says its no common anymore) they advised waithing untill a few months befor boster is due and do it all again.
Her breeder even emailed a guy in america who writes the vac protocals over there and he thinks its was maternal antiboidies that stopped the first set and that its stastickly more likley that thre was a fault with the distamper one in the second than her being a non respondant (1 in 5000 dogs are non respondents apperantly). so fingers crossed when she is done again it will all take and i wont have to worrie any more.

Been to the beach today with our "pack"

One pyrennes
One Czech wolfdog
Four German Shepherds
and one muppet type Golden retriever.
As normal the most well behaved dogs on the beach :no1: well bar the czech, but we hide her faults well when there are 7 humans there to watch/distract her (never buy a GSD cross sled dog, inuit or these wolf dogs, no matter what shiny name they put on them, they are all nightmares :bash:)

There is a puppy walker for Guide dogs that goes down there and the dog is a nightmare, steals balls, would not leave us alone in the cafe area. She even climbed on the bench we sat at! Constantly upsetting our dogs when they are settled as they are trying so hard to be good and lay down and she is always on them, I think she may have even been in season the upset she was causing. The walker was a nice enough lady when I spoke to her a few months back, but frankly seems lazy or just lacking the energy to deal with her, leaving us have to do everything to get her away. The dog is just a nightmare and so the walker hangs out with the other special needs dogs, like a staffy that chews rocks and a kelpie cross that cannot stop barking!! I cannot see how they can make a good guide dog out of the raw materials this walker has crafted together and all the habits she has picked up from the dogs she is exposed to.

The only thing that would worry me is the distemper that's going around in the ferret community. If it continues to spread it could end up causing problems in the dog community too.

I would tend to agree with you about that! :gasp:

That's not what I would expect from a puppy walker, but that poor puppy is gonna have a rude awakening when it goes into training and all those bad habits have to be dealt with! :bash:

Just what I was going to say.
Huge groups of ferrets are being wiped out by it, and they must be getting it from somewhere. Maybe not many dogs have symptoms because they have some immunisation coverage, but with ferrets and perhaps I guess wild foxes suffering there is no saying it is not out there

PPVallhunds 02-07-2012 03:32 PM

yeah its the ferrit thing thats been worring me. but not found anythink mentioned for south wales. Does anyone know how they have been comming in contact with it? ferret shows or something? Also read it doesnt last that long in the enviroment unlike parvo.

Kare 02-07-2012 04:17 PM

I think the big groups are in reScues from new ferrets coming in. But many small groups have suffered with no real known source.

And I thought ours was bad for chewing :gasp: He's never tried his luck with rocks, can't see how they could possibly be appealing for chewing on!!

I accidently locked his toys in the lounge when I went out once. He made his point by chewing every single flower off my lovely white sandals and flicking them around the house. Lesson learned! Do not leave a dog alone without his toys. Ever. :lol2:

Habu, She looks too cute to be a problem! What's her name? :flrt:

I don't know anything about canine distemper, but by the sounds of things, I ought to. There's a ton of foxes where we are, and plenty of dotty little old ladies that thing the "poor foxies" need cat food left out for them regularly or they'll starve!! :bash:
Can anyone give me a brief run down of the symptoms? Just so I know what to look out for just in case! Ta :2thumb:

DavieB 03-07-2012 03:08 PM

I read an article last night about a fox living on the 72nd floor of rhe shard whilst in construction surviving on construction workers waste.

Yuri is needing to go back to basic training I think, He's good as gold command wise in the house but really stubborn outside I need to shout at him to get him to sit. Its annoying me a little now.

shadow05 03-07-2012 08:22 PM

this is my moms dog Amy i basically helped to raise her we got her when i was 12ish. she was 8 weeks old and a small black fur ball that liked to chew ur socks. she was one of 11 and the last to go. she is an black and white English Springer spaniel mixed with a chocolate Labrador retriever u can just see the evidence of that in her beard/mustache. she is currently 8 years old. this picture was taken when she was 2 years old. over the years amy has done many silly things all connect with labrador and spaniel characteristics. these include running in a figure of 8 for no reason, getting her head stuck in a fence, trying to catch pigeons, actually catching a pigeon and then spitting out its tail feathers while trying to look srry about it when my mom was telling her off lol :) i felt so srry for the pigeon but i cudnt do nothing but laugh at her while she was making these weird faces and spitting feathers out :roll2:

Just you wait - you'll have it soon enough!! Mine manages to sniff it out like a mini bloodhound - I'd stop her rolling but most of the time she rolls it's not in anything offensive and she LOVES it so I'd feel far too harsh...

I have an irrational phobia of tomato ketchup after being covered head to toe in the stuff as a kid by my dad shaking a glass bottle... hahaha... will need to sort that, I reckon! Not got any in the house today so will buy some tommorrow.

Yuri started the RAW diet tonight. Can't believe how excited he was about his dinner. I had to take the fish out the hall about 3 or 4 times lol. Glad he's not food agressive id have lost my fingers taking something so exciting out his grasp lol.
