I dispensed with the crate for Beau last week. He's been mostly good, the first day, he ate a chunk off the cardboard cat scratcher that was hanging on the front door (and that the cat never used) and tore the loop that it hung from the knob by. I moved it to one side, and now the cat loves it. Go figure. And yesterday, I had to work a longer and different shift than I usually do at the market, and I guess he just couldn't hold it any more and peed in the bathroom. I give him credit, he was aiming for the cat's litter box, most went in, some on the floor that needed cleaning up.

We also took our first successful off-leash walk int he woods behind the house on Saturday. Thinly sliced hot dogs make excellent bribes/rewards!

Beau is well, thanks for asking! Took a chance and left him loose in the house instead of crating him today and he was a very good dog. I may be able to get rid of the crate, which will free up a lot of space.

He's also been part of the Photo a Day challenge that I take part in. When I get the photos uploaded to Flickr, I'll post a ink to the album.

Of all the dogs that had to be accounted for, 22 of them went to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary nine years ago.
One of them, Oscar, was put to sleep this week. That brings the number of surviving dogs down to eleven, as eleven are now dead.
Oscar, as far as I know, was not afflicted with babesia. He was, however, taking pain medication on a daily basis, and all I can gather is that the pain was chronic, and the conditions behind the pain could be treated but not reversed. Oscar's adoptive owner stated that Oscar was having more bad days than good ones now, and that it was time to let him go while he could pass comfortably and with dignity.

Of the eleven survivors out of the Best Friends Sanctuary 22, I believe that four dogs remain at the Sanctuary. Meryl, a female, must remain at the Sanctuary for life, by court order. The other three are Willie Boy, Curly, and Mya: two males and a female in that order. It is questionable if Willie Boy and Curly will ever be adopted outside the sanctuary, with their anxiety and fearfulness. But they are being looked after as if the sanctuary is their forever home. Willie Boy favors the horse toy, a large rubber ball on a swing, which he will bump the way the horses bump it. Curly favors the office of the dog-area managers, and is a champion shredder of paper and cardboard boxes.
Mya excells at being a surrogate mother to puppies.

Here's a Best Friends Sanctuary link if I can get it to work.

Vicktory Dogs: some updates

Rapparee, earlier in this thread, saluted the Vicktory Dogs.

I just went to the Best Friends website because I needed a Vicktory Dog update.
It has been nine years since the rescue.
Some of the dogs actually were re-homed, adopted out.
At least a dozen stayed at the Best Friends sanctuary.
Presently, they are getting fed, walked, sheltered, medicated, and all the love and attention they need.
They are slowly but surely dying off. They were dying from the beginning, one at a time. Not all of the same cause; but in many cases the culprit was "babesia" which is blood-borne. Lukas and Tug, two heavily scarred Vicktory dogs who enjoyed some happy years at the Sanctuary, died of babesia. The latest is Denzel, the big black pitbull named in honor of Denzel Washington: babesia again.

The one the rescuers named "Georgia," the brood bitch for whom the Vickpeople hired a vet at some point to do a thorough and professional job of extracting every tooth, bad or good, in her jaws, the better to forcibly breed her without her damaging the stud dogs (yes it means what you think), became something of a celebrity, with her big toothless pitbull grin. She was old and worn-out physically, and her kidneys finally did for her, but she was tenderly cared for until the end. Sigh.

Hi Dan! Welcome back!

Keberoxu, thanks for the story about Mickey.

As for Beau, he attended his first ceilidh this past weekend, entertained the other guests, licked the two babies that were present, and kept his nose off the food table, even though there was a lovely port roast up there. The trash basket on the floor was a little more problematic, but after repeated reminders that it wasn't for him, he started ignoring it. He received many compliments for his behavior, including praise from a woman who used to train dogs professionally. He did cause an embarrassing moment when he peed on the floor late in the evening, but t may have been because both times that I'd taken him out previously he had just lifted his leg and gotten frightened by the plow truck going by and by one of the other guests scraping the ice off their windshield. Either way, I cleaned up after him and no carpets or upholstery were involved and it didn't seem to bother our hosts.

Although I prefer to skulk and lurk under my membername, it would be a good time to mention a dog in my past, making further disclosure of my own personal info.

During my childhood, my brother and his best friends came storming home from play one day, with a hound in tow: can we keep her? She had been dumped. Whoever dumped her, probably did so because she was gun-shy, poor lamb. Not only did she have a horror of guns -- even the sight of an unloaded shotgun, propped up against the wall in the corner, would freak her out -- but she lost it during thunderstorms and Fourth-of-July fireworks displays. She would shake like a little leaf.

Full grown, she was, and the boys named her Mickey for some reason. Although she greatly resembled a beagle, there was something else in there as well, probably more hound but a different breed of hound. Her eyes, for example, were not beagle eyes strictly speaking, with all that "eyeliner" effect; her eyes were "makeup-free" if you can imagine how that looks. Proportions were a little different as well: her legs were long and slender, and so was her head, more so than a purebred beagle. But the markings in her fur were classic beagle markings against a background of snow white. She shed something awful, bless her.

And she was so beautifully house-trained, by the damn fools who threw her away by the side of the road, that she ended up training us more than we trained her!

It was time for Mickey to go out and do her business, for example, when she told us so. From the beginning she had her own protocol and she taught it to us. She would head over to the door, and ... you'll never guess ... she would SNEEZE. Loudly, and repeatedly. All of us would drop whatever we were doing, and say, uh-oh, time to let Mickey out, and we would hurry to the door, where Mickey would dance around impatiently, and would zoom outside as soon as the door would open. Yes, it was embarrassing how well trained we were by that dog.   

I was away at university when the news was relayed to me. She had gone for a stroll along state route number [] which was a thoroughfare for trucks, from the Eisenhower regime. She was found by the shoulder, and a truck had hit her; it appeared that she died instantly and suffered not at all. I recall thinking: Poor kid, she got lucky, when none of us had the toughness to have her put down, she was dispatched quickly and painlessly in spite of us.

We will never have another companion like Mickey.

It is amazing how good my dog is at trigonometry. What ever the vector angle I point to , Gromet can draw a mental line through solid objects to arrive at the destination. If its a treat she uses the scent but for angles under 40 degrees she uses dog trig.scent

She looks like a border collie but is part Rottweiler and like most dogs has an unerring internal clock.

keberoxu, I used to take old/unadoptable dogs just to give them a happy ending. Worked and I loved each of them However, just about the time I thought I couldn't bear the pain of the inevitable loss again- usually within a year - I got an unadoptable youngish dog, a Cairn terrier just four years old. What made her unadoptable was that she had a congenital, inoperable condition where part of her liver had migrated through a hole in her chest wall. At age 9, that is where her cancer began- but oh, I had five good years with her.

These animals - dogs and cats - were all adopted through the local humane society. Interestingly, even though the normal cost of adoption through them is just under 100 dollars, I have not been charged anything for any of them. Good policy.

Just maybe that fact inspires other people to adopt older animals.

Thompson, I love the idea of a borderline collie. And I love the story about her finding the keys.

What I learned about cat food may apply to farty dogs. Supermarket pet food contains plant fiber to bulk it up. This is not natural food for cats, and it irritates the digestive tract, producing a state of near-diarrhea. The result is a stinky litter box.

Buying better food, such as Iams or Science Diet, makes for a healthier cat and a nicer box. The food costs more per bag, but the cat needs less of it.

Worth trying with dogs, I think.
