Change of plans, BC puppy is staying with his original owner but I am getting a lab mix foster puppy Monday night *and* dog sitting for an 8 week old Kelpie puppy for 4 days next week. That means my three dogs and two baby puppies in my house, and Phil will be gone. Yikes!

Today I was reminded that there are dog owners out there that believe any form of discipline for your dog is bad and that it's abusive to allow dogs to be sad. Crate training is apparently the most evil, inhumane thing on the planet and if a dog whines you should just give it what it wants or else you're being cruel.

Argh.

Well, when they get rear-ended bad and their dog either gets burned up by the air bag or becomes a flying projectile through the windshield they can come complain to me about how evil crates are.

How old?

I've mentioned elsewhere, but I got a 3 month old French Bulldog yesterday. Strange question / behavior: It seems to only bark when it's really tired. It will dig around with it's paws on the couch or in its crate and bark repeatedly, then it will stick its face into the blanket / couch / whatever and do a few muffled barks and then fall asleep. It's a mixture of funny and strange, as you can tell how tired it is, but it seems to get riled up immediately before falling asleep. Anyone seen an animal do this? It's done it 3 or 4 times now.

Yeah, most puppies I've seen do something like this. They are kind of like little kids, tend to get all worked up when they're tired. I just was pet-sitting a 9 week old Kelpie all weekend and he would bark at his tail and then "dig" at his crate before falling asleep. My 4 year old GSD Nikon still does this sometimes, digs his head into the bed doing little play barks and flopping around.

Thanks. She's going to be gorgeous too. Look at her parents!

Mom:
 


Dad:
 

She's only 7 weeks old and so very tiny. I need to make an appointment with the vet for her tomorrow. She's been having a very upset stomach today and I'm a little worried (what else is new?)

I think I'm in love with your dog.

I was especially worried because Audrey wasn't drinking any water. She has wet food, so I knew she was getting some liquids, but as far as I could tell, she hadn't touched her water. Did a quick google search tonight, found a suggestion (to give her water from my finger and lead her to the dish) and it took about three tries for her to figure it out. It made me really sad and happy at the same time to see her go at her water dish. I feel bad that I didn't think of looking on Google sooner, but I'm glad she figured it out.

Um, so if you have a four year old human who wants a candy bar, you tell it no and it throws a tantrum, do these people roll over (lame joke intended) and let the kid have everything it wants?

Obedience class has started up with Viking again. He's 8.5 months now. The 2nd week starts tonight and I am excited!

I am bummed though because we only went to dock diving once this summer. The rest of the events interfered with Schutzhund. Why is it that everything around here is always on the same day of the week???
