For those who remember , we lost our dog Beauford in September. He was our only child and the past 3 months have been hard. Too quiet. No howling or beying when we come home from work or the store. Of

I want to introduce you to Winthrop...born Oct. 25th 2020 He fills a hole in our hearts left by the loss of our last side kick Beauford I just remembered how sharp puppy teeth are ;-)

It is with a heavy hear that I tell you folks that my daughter's dog Marley went off to dog heaven 2 days ago.  She found Marley about 14 years ago, an abandoned dog.  Marley was probably about 2 or 3 years old then.  A mixed breed medium to small dog probably about 30 pounds.  Pointy ears, a longish snout and not very long legs.  Whatever her antecedents were, Marley was as strong as a plow horse, that dog was all muscle and and didn't take any shit from other dogs.    As a matter of fact she didn't like most other dogs.  But a couple of years later my daughter took in another rescue, Lady Bird, a border collie, Lab mix and the two got along fine.  I would joke with my daughter that Marley and Lady Bird were lesbians, and the two had a relationship and Marley definitely wore the pants in that relationship.  Marley was very protective of her humans and her home.  When I first met Marley I was curious if she would accept me.  It was love at first sight for both of us.  I only get back to visit every 2 or 3 years and when I would come in the house Marley and Lady Bird would greet me like a long lost friend and Marley and I would spend time together.  She would snuggle next to me on the couch, pressing her body into my leg or with her head on my lap.  When my daughter's twins were born 3 years ago I wasn't worried about the dogs, and sure enough the dogs were very gentle around the babies and very protective of them .  They would let the kids lay on them and all the things kids do to dogs with no problem.  Marley was having trouble walking and going blind, and other problems and finally it was time.  My daughter said she gave Marley some salami, her favorite treat, and held her as the vet gave the injection.  My daughter explained everything to the 3 year old kids, she said they took it pretty well.  Now, I'm tearing up again dammit.  RIP Marley, you were a great dog, I'll miss your.  We can snuggle again someday.  

Here is Marley 4 years ago.

Hah! That's not outside!

Speaking of outdoor dogs, Libby is 12 now, pretty old for an 80 lb dog, and has gotten weird about coming inside over the last few months.

She always preferred to be outside, especially if I was outside, but there were always exceptions. She knew that when we came back from the creek after sunset, it was dinner time, and she always followed my wife inside. Didn't matter whether I was coming in right away. It was dinner time.

Now my wife can barely drag her inside and even if I try to get her to go inside she's very reluctant. She's fine once inside, eats her dinner, doesn't ask to go back out. But she doesn't want to go in, even if I'm going.

She always followed me in at lunch time. Now I tell her I'm going in for lunch and about one time in ten she comes along. The other nine times, she just looks at me and then looks over her shoulder, as if I must be talking to some dog behind her.

The only time she wants to come in these days is at doggy breakfast time. I don't even have to say anything, just start heading that direction and she heads for the door as fast as her arthritic legs can carry her. Which is not very. I think I can outrun her these days.

Old dogs get weird...

That would explain not coming in at lunch but not the desire to stay outside at dusk. If one of us doesn't get her inside, she'll stay out all night.

Yeah, my 90 yellow pound Lab will be 12 next month.  The last year he has really started to act like a senior dog.  My wife walks them in the forest every morning but he can't go as far as they used to because he has some arthritis.  He sleeps a lot, well even more than usual and sometimes he will just stand in the middle of the room as though he isn't sure what he wants to do or like he isn't sure where he is.  Naturally both of my dogs are spoiled rotten but now instead of giving me that pitiful heart rending look look with those big dog eyes, he stands and barks repeatedly until I give him whatever it is he wants.  His little half sister, the 75 pound chocolate girl, is 3 years younger and she has always wanted to do everything big brother Stanley does.  Since Stanley has arthritis he can only get his front legs up on his favorite couch, or the bed, I help him get his butt up.  Bella is in great shape and can easily jump, but she acts all helpless and makes this pitiful soft crying noise until I give in and I help her get her butt up as well.  I have to keep interrupting my typing right now because Bella is lying next to my chair making that pitiful cry because I'm not rubbing her belly enough to suit her. These damned animals have me wrapped around their little fingers.

Dogheimers. Tango started to get it when she was about 15-16. Libby knows where she is and what she wants. She's outside and wants to stay that way! Last night she knew I was coming to take her inside and reacted by rolling over. I had to pick her up onto her feet to get her to reluctantly come inside.

Really glad to have discovered this thread. 

My parents' dogs were always small enough to be manageable on the boat. That size range range (10-40 lbs) was always the ideal for my own dog/boat plans. I now find my dog and boat situation to be like the old naval toast ("To our wives and sweethearts ... may they never meet."). Alaskan Malamutes on a 34-footer aren't a great fit. Instead I try to get keep them involved in other ways.     764009651_OtiswKathleen.thumb.JPG.d255359d0cf47a73c54602806bbde9d5.JPG

A Hobie 33 didn’t mix with a slightly clumsy 132 pound Belger (Belgian Malinois/ German Shepherd). Didn’t try.  
 

It is a great thread.  Even though it sometimes brings a tear to the eye.

Wasn’t sure whether the S/O came to see me or my girl, RIP.  But, she loved the beach life the last couple years of her life. A rescue dog found abandoned is a foreclosed home, but the perfect dog.

Our current pup is a Gersky (German Shep/ Husky). Even though she’s a delight, she lets you know she’s obeying you as a favor, and there damn well better be treats. ;)

She thinks so, but would get pushback from one of the cats on that point.

Last night I was able to avoid the whole "poor me I'm old and creaky and can't get up and can't walk inside" act. She heard me dumping some charcoal into the grill and jumped up from her bed to dash over and bark furiously at me. I stopped what I was doing and escorted her right inside before she could remember that she's too old to move.

She's not much of a howler, despite having a pretty expressive vocabulary. Closest she come is an "Oo Oo Oo" (with her snout in the air), which means "My food bowl is broken, come fill it NOW, serf!" 

Husky is the Inuit word for "attitude".  ;)

New puppy cuddling with his big sister. Big sister will be crossing the Bridge soon, so hopefully this will help ease that pain that we all know. 7 weeks, 10 lbs.

She was soooo sleepy and knew she was going to pass out, but was NOT going to leave me unsupervised, so this was her solution.

I've buried a few sadly.  I must be a bad dad because every dog I have ever owned has got old and died.

Except one.  I was building our first house, had to shift the ute and backed over a nine month old dog.  It did not die immediately unfortunately, but did on the way to the vets, on my lap pleading with me to make it better.  Still haunts me. 

A very hard lesson about vehicles and pets, but I learned well.  forty years and four houses later, the main entry doors on our house have auto closing devices on them.

But enough of that, some black humour.  "New dog meets old dog."

Poor BO. Only 12 years old. Better than a lotta dogs get, and I bet he met people that other dogs never get to meet, and probably went places, and smelled stuff no other doges ever got to smell. Imagine sticking your doggy nose up the popes skirt..... (I know what He had for dinner!)

What a great thread and we need to keep it going. Here is Sadie. 6 month old shelter rescue. When Mrs F_L surprised me with her a couple of months ago I gave her a hard time about the crooked ears. Was Sadie a factory blem? Did you get her at the defective doggy store? All in fun as those ears add to her character. Vet says she has some Red Heeler in her and warned she might be a bit hyperactive. HOLEE HELL, what an understatement! She can go from soft and cuddly to satanic demon dog in a heartbeat. Smart as can be but very head strong. Wish me luck.

A buddy hits golf balls into the woods around his house to keep his dog happy. He says the dog uses launch velocity and trajectory to determine landing spot, nose for final target acquisition.

In training any dog, the key is consistency. And if you want them do something complex, it helps to break it down and teach them a little at a time.

Dogs need a job. That's why we had them for ~ 30,000 years.  They want praise and attention yes, but they are developed enough to want to do something useful and they'll seek it out.

Fetching golf balls is a great exercise and a good task for almost any dog; remember to teach them not to chew on their acquisitions, though. And keep them away from golf courses!

My older dog, is a bit stubborn.  If I’m ready to take the two outside and he doesn’t come to the door, the younger one will go get him and bring him to the door, which seems to be her job. This might be via herding, but usually grabbing an ear and sliding him across the floor. They play well together, but clearly the younger female is the alpha in this house.

If you love dogs.........don't be stupid efuf to buy pet insurance for them like I did.

Always adopted dogs. All mixed breeds. Adopted a 3 year old lab this time and was wary of the health issues particular to the breed as they age so signed up with Healthy  Paws. "Highly rated", glowing testimonials, all the right stuff that appeals to over attached  sappy dumb ass dog lovers. Put up with the relatively high annual increases and inquired every year to be  greeted with justifications like the increases in vet bills, etc. So last year the premium increased over 30%. This year its going from $106 to $159 per month. Stupidly paid the $106 and I love my crazy dog as we all do but hell, I'll just self insure. Hate to walk away from the $1000's I've already paid but they finally reached my breaking point. Understand insurance. Also understand extortion. Live and learn.......yet again.

My sweet dog wilma passed last summer. I am currently dogless. My job takes me into lots of homes so I get to enjoy OPD on a regular. 
 

I recently met a Bernese mountain dog poodle mix. Bernie Doodle (BD) or some such thing. He shared his home with a golden retriever. The BD was 6 inches taller and 8 inches wider then the Golden. Anyway this BD kept grabbing my sleeve with his mouth and would try to pull me. The owner apologized and said. He is trying to bring you to the couch so you will sit down and pet him. 
 

So I did what any reasonable person would do. I sat at the couch and pet him.

If you love dogs.........don't be stupid efuf to buy pet insurance for them like I did.

So last year the premium increased over 30%. This year its going from $106 to $159 per month. Stupidly paid the $106 and I love my crazy dog as we all do but hell, I'll just self insure. 

This is helpful information. I was going to look into this but won’t waste my time now.  I always had rescues too, until the 2 I have now which are purebred. I’ll just take my chances.
