Pet Advice Question

227 I can never get to this thread until much later, but I'm asking for some moron help. I am looking for a Scottish Deerhound puppy. This will be my last dog and when I lost my 17 and 14 year old miniature dachshunds I want to go back to the large breeds.
Posted by: Ben Had at March 26, 2016 04:49 PM (k9iTk

This is a good question regarding a breed that isn't very common. But, the advice given would be the same for any other breed. You can contact the AKC to see if they have AKC approved breeders. Is there an AKC dog show close to you? If so, go to the show and talk to the breeders. The dog show world is very political at times. But all of the breeders love to talk about their dogs and their specific breed. Often they can inform you of upcoming puppy liters. Is there a Natioanl Club and/or local club for the breed you are looking for? In this situation, yes. There is The Scottish Deerhound Club of America. We hope this helps you and others searching for a dog. Good luck in your search!!!!

21 A friend asked me why I get up at 3.00 in the morning to let the cats out, structure my day around their feeding times, and leave the closet open so my big tom can sleep on the top shelf.

I told her it was just easier that way.

22 Years ago watched online while pet people transported a dog across country. Someone agreed to adopt him and people volunteered to pick him up at a state line, take him half way or to the other state line and someone else wd pick the pup up and continue on. They managed to get this dog from the east coast to the southwest. It was impressive.

28 Pale Rider - yes, whippets look like a smaller version of a Greyhound - about a medium size dog. Then there is the Italian Greyound which is very much smaller. It was once my ambition to have all three. Small, Medium and Large. I only ever had the large. We got her when she retired from the track.

We always had German sheps growing up and the best thing about them was their sense of humor. Yes, they are very serious when they are about their self-appointed duties (as pets), but watching one of ours throwing a bowling ball around the backyard was always side-splittingly fun. When we got rid of the rope swing and Dad tied it off so kids didn't play when they weren't home, that dog made it a point to jump up and grab the knot to swing by her teeth.


Posted by: mustbequantum at April 02, 2016 03:05 PM (MIKMs)

35 Looks like Traye has a Great Pyrenees. We got one as an informal rescue. Friend of my dad's was helping a church member rehome it. She had gotten a GP as a big watchdog type for her 3 daughters, but living in town it didn't work out for her. We have 10 acres and no sheep herd but Mia can be outside and bark w/o hassles.

I think the GP drive to watch their herd and bark to warn off predators is quite strong, Mia accepted our horses, especially the minis as her herd to protect although she used to look really longingly at a goat herd of a neighbors when I would take her for a walk the first couple of years she was here.

Posted by: PaleRider at April 02, 2016 03:05 PM (3kUGE)

36 I should mention, Jakob, in the background of that shot, was a rescue. He was pretty horribly neglected his first year, almost starving to death. The animal control people broke him out of his jail, and a shelter rehabbed him until we adopted him. Such a sweetheart. A really magnificent German shepherd...smart, brave and true.

Posted by: PaleRider at April 02, 2016 03:11 PM (3kUGE)

39 GSD can be silly, that's for sure. Jakob once grabbed the riding mower by the tire, and popped the thing. I don't know if he thought it was fun, or if he saw the mower as a threat. Needless to say, he doesn't come out when I mow any longer. And Grammie...I will look up those jokes..thanks!

Posted by: Lizabth at April 02, 2016 03:12 PM (3v3uS)

40 Mis Hum, thanks for posting Katie and Jasper. They're both rescues. Jasper was given up by an older lady who just couldn't take care of him any longer. Katie was found wandering the streets of Newark, NJ. Both of them are annoying and lovable all at once.

54 grammie, what are the temperaments of greyhounds like? Are they hard to train?

Posted by: L, Elle at April 02, 2016 03:13 PM (2x3L+)
=========================================

Forget about training. They are probably the third dumbest creature on God's green earth. That's why they are good racers. They are too stupid to realize that they won't ever catch the "bunny" that goes before them in the race. The dumb ones are the best racers, because they never figure out they could just cross the track and meet up with the bunny. So if you get one off the track, they are exceptionally stupid. They are also completely unaccustomed to the outside world, so they may try to walk through your patio doors, not realizing that they are glass, the TV will scare them, lakes will scare them - almost everything will scare them. It usually takes them about 6 months to adjust to life in the real world. They will not know how to climb stairs, for instance, since they have never encountered them before.

It helped that we had a Golden Retriever at the time. Emma the Greyhound would watch Annie the Golden, for cues as to what to do. She always followed her, never the other way around.

As far as temperament - sweet, so so sweet. Docile. Quiet. Low energy, low maintenance. Gentle and, again, dumb.

Daughter's rescued GP doesn't mind the horses or the cats or other dogs on "her" property. but loves to spend an afternoon outside woofing at any animal that dares to move beyond the fence line. And with a quite impressive woof, I might add!

Posted by: Hrothgar at April 02, 2016 03:22 PM (wYnyS)

56 Now if you get a Greyhound that has never raced (they start trying to race them at 2 years) that sometimes means that they are not quite as docile and stupid. My daughter had a Greyhound that failed at racing, so was adopted out at two. He was a handful and she had to return him to the farm, as he just was not suited to be in a house. He wanted to remain a kennel dog.

Posted by: grammie winger, watching the fig tree at April 02, 2016 03:25 PM (dFi94)

57 I'm curious if anyone else has a similar situation with their dog or cat.
I play piano, just for my own amusement. Some wouldn't call it playing, but there you go...
Anyway, when I sit down to practice, my dog, bless her heart, runs to get her squeek toy and brings it over behind me and starts chewing on it.
She does this EVERY time I practice - and she gets tired of it after a few minutes and goes off to something else, but still. I swear she thinks she is accompanying me on doggy squeek toy and probably thinks she's better than me.
Sure, the jokes write themselves, but just wondering if any of you have a musical pet.

Posted by: Last at April 02, 2016 03:27 PM (8HiDF)

58 I know some of you are waiting to see your pet morons show up, and you're waiting patiently. MisHum and I have tried to put the pics up that included all basic info first (blog nic, pet name, breed). That proved impossible bc so many submissions were missing info. Our new way of choosing pics is half regulars and half lurkers. We're also averaging 15 new pics each weekend so they're piling up in our Inbox. It's encouraging to see so many lurkers send in pics.

I promise we will get through all of them. Your pet will be Ace famous one day

60 Just wondering if anyone else here has experienced FGA or CGA. I refer, of course, to Feline or Canine Gravitational Anomalies. These happen to me frequently when a dog or cat gets into my lap, becomes comfortable, and is able to increase its effective weight by a factor of at least three when I try to pick it up and put it on the floor.

64 @51 Thank you! He is gorgeous, and has the most beautiful gliding gait I've ever seen on a GSD. Apparently he was purchased for stud for a breeding operation, which fell into some serious acrimony which led to the neglect. Excellent blood lines and it really shows....he would have made an fine stud, but of course the rescues nip 'em before adoption, which is a totally understandable action.

Posted by: Lizabth at April 02, 2016 03:32 PM (3v3uS)

65 Hrothgar, sounds familiar. Mia barks at coyotes, I used to let our mutt (probably lab/pitty cross) Ole who stays in the house out to actually run them off (Ole slips thru the fence) when she was alerting but he'd chase the coyotes for an hour or more before coming back so after a few rounds of that my nerves and desire to get a full nights sleep ended that practice.

68 Palerider, I've had dogs all my 47 years and Patrick Henry is the best, so smart and protective of his herd and flock. And I could see the barking at whatever is out there at night being an issue in town. Our aim is to breed Freedom when she gets grown and keep a 4 dog pack working at a time.

Rockford College: started in 1975 left in 1978 (another small college bettered my scholarships). Back then, even had a PhiBetaKappa branch there and most of the professors' Phds were from the best of the best. High energy, big endowments and scholarships -- the library was to die for. I have no idea what happened with all of it. Beautiful city and amenities.

Posted by: mustbequantum at April 02, 2016 03:35 PM (MIKMs)

70 I was just remembering, about training. Every night we would give each dog a treat. We tried and tried to get Emma to sit. After about a year we gave up. We'd just say "Annie - sit!" and "Emma - stand!" Then they would each get a treat and Emma thought she had done something swell.


I swear that dog didn't even know where she was half the time. I still dream about her. I loved that dog.

71 Coyotes. When I go out with the telescope to look at stars, Jakob comes out with me as guard. The coyotes are sometimes hooting and hollering down field, and Jakob lets loose with one of his magisterial barks. Immediate silence down field.

We once had a Viszla that could scale any fence we could afford to put up. He'd range the neighborhood for an hour or so and then scale the fence to get back in. Always scared me because some dogs had been shot in that neighborhood (one reason we moved).

Neatest thing is that he never was roaming at dinner time, he was right there waiting. And he was always home at dark, because he was afraid he'd get left outside and couldn't guard the family overnight.

Moving to a bigger house this month....and since it's out of the town's jurisdiction, it means we can have chickens again!

I'd like to try raising some of the rare breeds, just for fun, (along with the more common breeds for eggs, and meat). The most interesting of the rare breeds, the Ayam Cemani, has black feathers. Black skin. Black meat. Black bones. Even black organs. Pricey though, at 200 dollars per chick.

100 My brother's two chickens provide fresh eggs but are causing some marital discord. They like to look in the windows at their humans, but that means the wrap-around porch is always getting pooped on. Bro and SIL are trying to come up with some way to repel them from the porch aside from a physical barrier.

The birds get along with the Jack Russell, so the dog isn't any help.

101 Bruce, that was a bit of concern, although Ole in his prime wasn't going to seem like a snack even to a pack of coyotes since they are less than half his size so part of my nerves was some neighbor was going to think Ole had been stalking chickens or something if they saw him after he'd chased coyotes thru.

Although one time I was riding Shade and leading my old guy GreyMoun fairly early in the morning and a pair of coyotes seemed to be stalking Ole, he noticed it too and came up close to us rather than his normal oblivious sniffing around.

Another time there was a coyote pup and he and Ole were playing, coyote was barking to get Ole to chase it. It was a warm day and I was nervous there might be a pack that would move in after the dog was overheated but looking back I decided it was just a pup newly on its own and feeling bored.

102 L, Elle.

Yep, 200 dollars each, unsexed. Although there is a european breed that has the same mutation that sells for about 100 dollars each.

I don't believe the wife would approve my purchasing a few of either breed. So, I'll focus my attention on the slightly less rare, and much less expensive breeds. The jungle fowls, phoenixes, duckwings, and sebrights, along with a few hens that lay blue eggs.

112 102 there is a person near us who breeds nearly all those except seabrights. I'd love to have fancy pretty chickens but I can see that be more of an outgo than an income. We have at least 12 breeds and then hybrids of those to the tune of over 200 chickens and they walk around feed themselves and lay 33 eggs.

113 I keep forgetting to send in some pics of the horses. They're not exactly pets, but two out of three of them have been in the house, so... close enough.
Right now, the big ones are a bit sore and cranky because they got their shots yesterday and that makes their necks swell a bit. I feel bad for them but they'll be fine in a few days. The mini gets a break because he only gets a rabies shot, though he fusses so much, you'd think he was getting stabbed by a knife, not a tiny little needle!
Ridiculous creatures, but I love them to bits.

118 We had a pack that tried to lure my dog many, many years ago. Were walking in the desert watching more for Mojave Green rattlesnakes than coyotes when a single coyote came over a hill; jumping, bouncing, yipping acting just like a puppy that wants to play. Bundy (my Queensland Heeler cattle dog--real name Bundaberg for the rum) started towards it, but in a move completely out of his character, came right back to my call. As we crested that hill, saw a pack of three running away. So they do try and entice the dogs into their traps. Scary.

I've heard their howling when they got some poor creature. My neighbor said she saw a coyote with a little dog in his mouth running away. Read in the paper where a woman was tending her garden with her pup about 8 feet away. Coyote jumped the hedge, grabbed the dog, and jumped over the hedge and was gone. I see them out early in the mornings and especially on trash pick up day. I feel sorry for them but I love pets more.

123 3 of them came into my yard eyeing my neighbors toy poodles. I thought they would be scared of me but they werent. I yelled and threw things at them and they would just retreat a few feet. Finally had to chase them away by running right at them yelling like a mad man.

124 The mini came in the house because there was a bushel basket of apples on the kitchen floor. He was grazing on the lawn, the door was open, and he followed his nose right to the apples. Made one hell of a mess, and the whole house smelled like a cider press for a few days after.

Penny came in the house because she's weird like that. She was grazing on the lawn, the door was open- seeing a theme here?- and she wanted to see where the people kept going. That was a bit tricky because she's a 1200 lb Quarter Horse, and her butt's nearly as wide as the door. I had to back her out the door with about half an inch of clearance on either side, then down the (stone) steps. Lucky for me, she didn't panic and try to turn around inside the house. That would have been interesting.

125 Lizabth- Horses are too curious for their own good, so there's a chance that they'll see a rabid raccoon/opossum/whatever and try to make friends with it, only to get bitten. And you have to have a valid rabies certificate to bring a horse to most shows/rodeos/ etc.

130 BRAG ALERT:

My mixed breed dog- that mostly looks like a mid sized Akita- is six and has been with me since her birth, and I've never had to house train her.

She just knew to walk to the door and sit if she needed to go outside to do her business. She also will not do it in the yard. I walk her to an empty lot across the street. Yes, I still bag lt.

I've never tried to keep her off of the furniture yet she still won't get on a couch/chair when anyone's looking. Of course, by amount of hair on my recliner when I arrive home from work, she enjoys lounging around watching the teevee I leave on.

I work a rotating shift and she easily slips into any time line I'm in.

We're a team.

ThunderB,
Mac looks so pitiful (in the cutest way possible!). I agree that he wants his dignity back.
An opossum? I was worried for a while because Tucker is pretty small & they can be mean. But he has brought me 3 dead ones now, so I don't worry much about them anymore.
I know all about "10 pounds of personality in a 5 pound package."

Chickens. I have been thinking of this topic...
I'm in the city, but on an acre. I've wanted to have a few, and may even meet the requirements to do so legally - I'll be verifying that this week.
If I decide to do it, I'll have plenty of questions, I'm sure.

Anyone have musical cats?
We have a piano and if we leave the lid open, Dexter (featured last Sat.) will paw at some notes. Hits a cluster, the occasional diad.
Then he will mount the keyboard and walk up and down, low notes to high notes, and vice versa.
Also next to the piano is my bass violin, on a stand, which he will stand on his hind legs and pluck the E string.
I don't mind it so much until he started doing it at 4 in the morning.
Youtube has a video of a cat drumming on a cardboard box and his owner drumming on drums. They have a pretty good duet going on.

136 When I kept chickens, we had two German shepherds, Anna and Fritz. When I brought the chicks home, we made it really clear to the dogs that "No". Anna took to mothering them, once bring one to me because she thought it was in distress. It had a funny wing ever after. Now Fritz, he didn't mind them until the chick were bigger and more or less chickens. He never tried to eat one, but he sure kept them in line. At dusk, we'd tell him, "Fritz, go get those chickens in". He'd race off and herd them in concentric circles until they were in a tidy group and put them in the shed for us. Only ones he got feisty with were the roosters, and we didn't mind that much because it kept them humble. The main thing is to spend time with dog and chicks right from the start, and the dog will learn that he is to guard and be nice to the little fowl, not eat them.

We dressed him up for a neighborhood dog parade, so during the parade he 1. steals a Poptart from a little girl spectator and 2. jumps up on a woman and makes her spill her coffee on herself.

156 I've never had problems getting dogs and chickens to coexist peacefully. Mostly they, (the dogs), want to play with them, (the chickens), or herd them. Roosters, the assholes of the fowl kingdom, will eventually try to attack dogs, which provides an excellent educational opportunity for both. Once they mutually agree that the dog is the top of the pecking order, they'll actually start to play with each other.

160 #59, laughed so painfully! My dad had a greyhound--so sweet and pretty. Hardly shed, real couch potato, but FAST. Caught a bird in mid-air once.

163 I re-rolled this video to correct for Jack's birth year, so I figured I'd link it again ICYMI.

The Fur Flies - starring Jack the Cat
With just a shake of the head
Video webwork, slightly less than 1 minute. Might need a serious-size screen to really see the "action."

On my website:

[And BW, if you see this, I don't like to leave misunderstandings standing: I hope you did or will come to understand that, stupid I may be, but last week I was not upset, just confused, because I hadn't realized that I had neglected to include the link and didn't realize why you had done me the favor you did.]

164 I'm on my 6th German Shepherd. Those are some beautiful dogs Liz. Jakob looks like my first, when I was a kid.

165 Grammie,
Do you have an I-phone or other phone that can take pics? You can use your phone to take a pic of the pic and e-mail it from your phone.

166 Thank you for posting that picture of Oblio.

In addition to being the most spoiled cat in the world, she is very sweet and affectionate.

167 Had a Guinea pig who loved music. Whenever I started playing an instrument, he would run out, sit up straight right in front of me and listen. When I quit playing, he then went back to his previous activities.

169 Ben Had - I'm really late to this thread but I wanted to weigh in on the request for information about Scottish deerhounds. I've had two and am pretty well versed on the community in both the U.S. and UK. If you answer this I'll give give you my junk email if you want more info.
