I wish my dog(s) would...

I wish my dogs would stop chomping on the wood next to the hearth and making a mess.  I have these crackly seed things that they can't seem to stop chewing.  Now they know that I don't like it, so they only do it when I am not home or I am sleeping/napping (I'm getting old).  They are decorations, but Bear found a tray full and finished them up. Naturally, this chomping and cracking is followed by vomiting.


Oh my gosh, look at that ginormous tongue!!  oh oh


Beautiful dog. We were just fostering two terrier/lab mix puppies. They must have been born on a quarry, because they dug up every rock in our yard and would go to eat them. I think it will be difficult to get them not to eat them. Good luck! 


Come back to life. LOL

 Yup, me too...


That video is depressing.  My dogs bark when I try to vacuum their messes, they stick their noses in my food, and they go through the compost pile for leftovers.  Bear I got because I needed protection in this wild, wild, south-of-the border, and he refuses to go out at night unless he sees a leash on my hand; he doesn't want to take the chance that he will be made to sleep outdoors like his previous owner did.

I really shouldn't be joking about your dogs, jfinnegan, because pica is a serious problem.  My german shepherd, who is photographed above, sometimes eats feces and my previous shepherd also ate feces.  It mellowed.  My dogs Jake and Rachel both ate leaves toward the end of their lives.  Jake ate dead leaves and Rachel muched on live leaves in a tree.  Some of these leaves are supposed to have medicinal properties, so I was not so concerned.  With time the shepherds minimized their consumption of feces, but Bear eats these crackly seeds; he eats everything, never stops eating.  What does your vet say about the dogs eating stones?

...would improve her conversational skills .... I've just lived alone too long.  She's precious company, and I wouldn't trade having her to say "Good Morning" and "Good night" to.  But carry on a conversation? 
Nu-Uh.   cheese


I've wondered from time to time whether science will get to a point where a dog's, or other animal's, vocal cords could be enhanced somehow such that they could talk. Perhaps creepy but maybe magical too.  


My dogs let me know what they are thinking.  Their most common responses:

When are we going for a walk?

Are we there yet?

What are you eating.  I want some  What's taking you so long.

THE FOX IS HEREEEEE!!!!!  Open the door!  Open the door! What's taking you so long?

I like it when you brush my fur.


For no particular reason...

Sorry Copihue, I had missed this post. The two puppies got adopted, but they had gotten better by the time they were adopted. Whenever they would go for a stone I would say drop it and then give them a treat when they did. I'm reluctant to foster terriers after those two. We currently are fostering German Shepherd mix puppies. They're wonderful.
