I figure it is time to start a new thread. We came from here
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1273042/

I hope that everyone and their pets came through the storm well. As I said in the FRANKENSTORM thread, we we had virtually nothing at Syracuse and areas east. Syracuse got about .25 inches of rain and the peak wind gust was 40mph. Here east of Syracuse we had no rain Monday night and only a moderate amount of wind.

Winston is a beaut! My dog, being part lab, is a born counter-surfer. The worst thing Cliffie ever ate was my daughter's bikini swimsuit. He ate the top, beads and all and was started on the bottom part when we found him. I had spent more money than I would have liked on the suit and she loved it, but she loves Cliffie so much, she didn't even utter a word for fear she'd upset him. Now that he's mature, he doesn't chew anything that isn't his anymore. The exception is any bread or pastry that isn't put into the bread box. Now that kids are in college he seems to be getting his weight more under control.

Jerry got into a cup of oil that had been used to cook chicken. It was on the back of one of the kitchen counters. Made a mess in the kitchen. Thought it might give him the runs, but he's been fine. He's always stealing things off the counters.

I've used the prong collar on Jerry. Worked at first, but he got used to it pretty quick. Doesn't seem to phaze him at all not, not unless I jerk it really hard, and that's hard on my wrist and arm.

Best thing that works on him is the electronic training collar, like the one Jen provided the link to, but a different brand. He behaves so well with that on, but batteries have to replaced all the time, about every 2-3 weeks, and they are about $5 for 2, which is what it takes. Jerry will walk fine, but is bad when other dogs are around, like Winston. Hard to control then, but not with the traing collar on.

Yay for Sampson!

Post #9333662

You use the collar whenever you want him to do something whether coming to you, just sitting down or in correction for doing something wrong, but better to be preemptive

This is the training we went thru
5 commands ONLY
sit, down, off, come and place
That's the words Wall-e was trained to use, you should always pick command words and stick with just those words

anything you don't want the him to do is "off" whether he's jumping or even pulling you constantly tap the button and say "off"
when there's a problem of going after another dog when walking by you constantly tap the button saying off, off, off at the same time

The dogs that are in advanced training will even turn their head away from dogs as they are walking by, as if they are stuck up and ignoring that dog, it's the funniest thing I've seen

"Place" is when basically a stay command but will have them place to an actually spot, they use platforms in training in a range of sizes

Thanks Jen for your info. I'm looking into a few different ones.
I've seen a few people walking very large dogs with no leashes and the dogs never even wavered from the owner. Often wondered how they did it.

I didn't go through any professional training to learn how to use the collar on Jerry. I've mostly used it for correction. I had already done some training with basic commands before getting the training collar. He knew the commands, but was responsive to them only about half the time. I was getting frustrated, so decided to get the collar. One of the best things I ever did.

Now when I take Jerry for walks off leash (yes, I can actually take him walking off leash!) I can let him run ahead, and when I say "here" or "come on", he usually comes running right back. If he ignores me, I give him a tone correction, which consists of a beeping noise. He knows it'll be followed by a stimulation correction if he doesn't respond to the command. I rarely have to give him the stimulation.

When I'm walking him on the leash, I basically do the same thing to keep him from pulling. Also keeps him from getting too excitedover other dogs, as well, and keeps him from jumping on people, which he loves to do and loves to ignore me if I don't correct him.

I came to the point she got posioned or hurt. It was SUNDAY afternoon & a vet visit was on the table. arghhh 3 to 5 hundred bucks, but it was on the table.

I watched her, finally I gave her an asprin. 1 hour later she was back to Molly's self.

I asked Jim all questions, did she leave the yard? NO, Did she get into the garage with stuff, NO. Did she get hit by a vehicle, NO. Then Jim said he was driving & they both saw a dog & got into a dog fight in his truck.

I think she went into "shock" and probably pulled a muscle & got her ego hurt. She is fine now but I did not sleep Sunday night.

Ordered a E collar today with both static and vibration. After a horrible walk yesterday and an even worse one today, we almost got hit by a car I've had enough. Will start on the vibration only for a while and hope I don't have to use the static. I have to try something. If I see another dog I try and turn and go another way, today I had no choice but to walk by. Winston went nuts, the prong collar had absolutely zero affect on him :-(

Hope that e collar works a well on Winston as it has on Jerry. That's been the best thing ever for him.

Sherrie and Allison, I'm glad both your dogs are fine. Jerry and Patches got into it once over some leftovers that I put in one of their bowls. I thought they'd be able to share. Boy was I wrong!

I took Jerry for a nice walk art a huge wildlife management area very close to me that I haven't been to before. Went with my nephew and friend Gretchen. What a nice place that is. It's over 2000 acres. Jerry had a great time, and got to do a lot of running around. He was very well behaved with the e collar.

Oh, handsome boy, Jerry! Ronnie, I had a few awful walks with Robs like that...only it was the people he wanted to get at, not the dog! Sherrie, Suey gets the shivers if she hears gunshots...hunting all around us the past month, the poor dog is a wreck! Allison, glad the girls are OK...you never know what sets them off...Suey attacked Garret's dog, Ollie, a few months back...he's twice her size...no blood, but lots of snarling!

Cat's are certainly different. I love how, every once in a while, they all have to change where they sleep for no apparent reason I can see.

I guess I now officially a dog butt scratcher now, at least a according to Bear. At least once a day I have to scratch - rub his back above his hips. I know I've become well trained.

Am I the only one that worries about their dog during deer hunting season. I took a walk out back this after noon, but I didn't let Bear get very far from me because even though it is our own land, and I know who should be hunting there there is nothing to stop from someone wandering onto it from either side. Give the fact that he is big and brown I worry about the hunter that works on the principle if it's brown it's down.

I had a puppy once that chewed up all the bark from the bottom of a sapling apple tree in my backyard at the time. I thought it was down for, but it came back from the below where he chewed it. And he was still a little thing, too!

The worst was went that dog was grown up. I had moved to a new place and had him in the house with a new puppy (well, not really new, but fairly new). Anyhow, he was used to being able to be loose in a fenced back yard, and I no longer had one. My hubby and I came home from work and found not only the wall to wall carpet in front of the slider door all torn up, but the slider was off the track and sofa was moved away from the wall. Talk about a mess! Oh, man, I was so pissed!

Good luck, Memory. Praying for those kitties.

Where do you take him to spray peroxide, Jen? That might be our next step too. We still have to deep clean the floors and his sleeping area too.

FlowAJen I recommend that you get some one else like a close friend or relative to check to see if the smell is really gone. Smells are something me become less sensitive to the longer that we are around them.

Got word that the Veterinary Endocrinologist that did the RadioIodine treatment for Sampson is going to pay for all 3 of my cats to have thyroid tests for a study he is doing. Probably won't resolve anything - but they are little pioneer kitties now.

After Robs died, I received an email from a group studying genetic diseases in airedales...I hope the study helps...Jen & Rosemary, the skunk cleaning recipe I have said to mix a cup of peroxide with a 1/4 cup of baking soda, a gallon of water & some dog shampoo...

Thanks for the dog-cleaning suggestions. I am afraid peroxide will bleach Cliffie's lovely chocolate coat, and I am at work all day when there is the most sun for treating him outside. I learned that people around here take their dogs to swim in ocean water when they can because the salt water seems to neutralize the skunk smell. We're dealing with smells from probably rolling in something a skunk sprayed. Plus the sulphur smell from swamps and rotting leaves.

I was told another idea--those sprays to hide odors from deer that are used by hunters supposedly also reduce skunk odors. I would have to find a hunting store to stop by during work hours. There's a Camper's World in Foxboro that I sometimes pass in my daily travels

Wall-e is a very handsome dog! He sure isn't blond.

We're concentrating today on putting boulders in front of Cliffie's excavations, because then for a while he just entertains himself with moving rocks, and then he doesn't smell as bad. Power's been going on and off all day, which scares Cliffie, so we're not traumatizing him with smells too at the moment.

Robin, I love going to Sturbridge too. We always stop at the Travelers restaurant when we are on the road, and Publik House is a bigger treat for a fancier meal.

If you give us a positive review for the restaurant, i can try it next time I'm driving to the mid-Atlantic along route 84.

I think teachers get good rates in motels too. I get a break by showing a government ID and they don't care if the travel is not for government work.

I find the admission to Sturbridge Village to be rather expensive, especially if its only for a short rest stop, so we seldom go. The way they show the designs of the water wheels that powered the mills is very detailed, and still interesting for a non-engineer.

It is confirmed - all three cats are HypoThyroid. So I have two cases of spontaneous Hypo - unrelated cats in the same household with no symptoms of Hypo. This has never been seen before - maybe they will get written up in a Journal and become famous! The youngest, healthiest of the bunch has hardly any thyroid!

Re: cat thyroid levels There IS a big question on exactly how many cats have low thyroid issues. Wallingford is younger than the age where Vets ask to take senior cat panels - I just thought it prudent. I think he has had blood panels before and the thyroid was OK. However we know that one year ago HollyCat had a normal thyroid level and now she doesn't. It has got to be something that I am feeding or something in my house. I'm just thankful that they aren't sick. And yes Doug, they are special - at least to me. :)

I think I posted on here, awhile back, on how Tom and I got a Neapolitan Mastiff...his name is Masso. I wanted a dog that I could have as a couch buddy, so we researched and we ended up getting a Basset Hound, Paisley. We decided we liked the Neo so much, that we wanted to breed them...after extensive talks with the breeder, we purchased a 2nd Neo, a female, named Luma. So in one years time, we went from just having Theta, to having Theta, Masso, Paisley and Luma. Masso just turned 1 year old the beginning of December, Paisley is almost 5 months old, and Luma is about 9 1/2 weeks old.

The 1st pic is Masso when he was maybe 2.5-3 months old...give or take, the one with him on the couch was taken in November, I believe. The one with Tom and the 3 puppies was taken the day after we got Luma.

Thanks, Victor. Dad took a fall at the nursing home the day before Christmas. A lot of bruising, but no breaks. He's been in pain, but was doing well when we saw him last night for his birthday. He's 83 now.

Here are some pics of Jerry and Patches with their new Christmas outfits in front of the tree (I think Patches outfit looks silly, but my sister got that for her, and I got the one for Jerry, good one for him to wear during hunting season).

opened for me.. I can say I have a co-worker who shares that view.. they only kept dogs to alert them of someone approaching and later eat them.. he couldn't believe we let them inside our homes

I'm glad our culture, for the most part, treats pets humanely...if you live with them, you understand how incredibly smart & empathetic they are...

Dogs in snow are a riot. Bear had to rub his head along the snowbank and then roll on it. Then we played chase the snow ball. He also had to lay in the driveway and look like he was trying to make a snow angel.

Thanks, guys, for the compliments on my dogs. I think the red outfit on Patches is rather ridiculous, but my sister got it for her. Oh, well. I got Jerry his jacket. I have a jacket for Patches that looks nice on her. I guess I'm awfully "white".

That Jacob Zuma is ridiculous!

Cute Karen!
I love watching dogs in their first snow of the year. Cyrus pushes his nose through it like a plow, then takes a big lick. When it snows fresh snow on the deck you can see lick marks all over the deck! LOL

Karen I'm sure the dogs don't care as long as then are getting attention they don't have a concept of "looking foolish".

If you want to hear someone like Jacob Zuma howl turn the argument around. Dogs are allowed for whites only. Same thing just stated with different words.

I read the article and what I took away was that it is more important to vaccinate children than dogs when you don't have money for both.

Suey hates the snow...she'll take one look & run back inside...Robs, like all my airedales, loved the snow, but the snow would stick to their kinky fur, & I would have ice balls all over the house!

That's not exactly what I got from it, Memory, but if that's what he meant, then he has a good point. It is more important to vaccinate your own children than your dogs. Children DDR first, and I feel it's irresponsible to have dogs if you can't afford to take care of them. A dog is a responsibility, not a possession. Did you happen to read both articles? The first one had a lot more in it.

I took Jerry and Patches walking at the Plymouth waterfront today with Ryan and Gretchen. Had a really good time.

Love watching dogs navigate the snow, same as Bear and Cyrus here. Cliffie's first step is to dunk his head in, then to roll around until he's covered, then snowplow with his nose. Then if there's not enough reason to bark at snowflakes or take a nap in the snow, he expects to be allowed right back inside, which he is, after a towel drying. If we have a fire in the fireplace, he acts very "Finnish" and alternates between hot sauna atmosphere and cold snow.

I can see why you call him Creamsicle. Is he a stray or just someones cat that likes to hang out at your house. He looks to be in pretty good shape for a stray.
