November 16th 2007 9:16 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

ONE YEAR SOME YRS BACK:
I made a memory for thanksgivings to follow for years to come, you see mom and dad put big ole tom turkey in the sink to thaw over night ,he was a big boy 20lbs, so while everyone was sound asleep with vision of pumpkin pie and turkey meat,
I went to work
now I hopped up on that there counter and I tugged and pulled and well I worked all night long, what did I do ,,,well let me share with you the next mourning.
dad and mom woke up went in kitchen made coffee half asleep sat down drank a cup or 2 and then decided it was time to get the lovely birdie going in the oven, well you would have died to see the look on dads face *it was priceless*
he was standing at the kitchen sink with glass eyes I tell ya, dad, he scratched his head he scratched his butt he stared in space then turned to ask mom the dumbest question ever,,
momma where is the turkey did you forget to thaw it and put it in the sink with water last night,???????
my momma turned said no silly remember we did it together , then It was historical they were both standing there at that sink with glass eyes scratching there heads, scratching their butts, then they turned and they at each other confused as all get out,. Then they looked around under the tables behind the cabinet , the bathrooms the bedroom they looked high they looked low they looked ever where tee hee. then content that they would never find the turkey I went back to have a lil more sweet birdie breast ,in quiet, hidden.
well I guess I got a lil excited and started making growling sounds, from behind the recliner chair,
they turned and look at each other with this rage look in there glass eyes and they ran to the chair , and looked down and there I was completely on top of that 11 lb turkey ,,yeah it was 20 to start but I was eaten all nite long.
you see I tugged and tugged and tugged some more until I go that big ole turkey out of the sink I even got a bath when all the water from the cavity poured all over me,
then I dragged that big ole birdie thru the kitchen and I hid that turkey behind the chair,
well after a really scary chase ,yup I was booted out side ,but that’s ok I was full anyways, burp frrrrrt..
momma and daddy went from rage to hysteria ,laughing and chocking so hard I thought they would pass out for good,
they would have done anything to see me in action they said,
so it was a different thanksgiving ,the family went to dennys restaurant and well I spent the next few days out side,,
not to worry though I am back in and I am to old to pick up a mouse let alone a twenty lb bird full of water soaking and thawing in the kitchen sink, but what a thanksgiving
I am blessed to be alive!!!!!! litterly,,
there’s my story
so it was so long
purrrrrrring

I AM SO GLAD HE IS MY FUR BROTHER HE PROTECTS MY WITTLE BUTT ALL THE TIME HE REALLY REALLY DOES

LEARNING TO RETRIEVE

August 22nd 2007 9:39 am

This thread will be started with each new trick. You may post here with helpful hints at how to teach the trick or ask questions to see if another pup can help you learn the trick. You can also woof here and let us know your progress.

Retrieve 8/22/2007

It is definitely a gene thing. Some pups will be naturals at this and others will have to be taught to retrieve. Of course, there are exceptions. I have one Min Pin that loves to play catch and retrieve (although he does not always bring right back BOL) and another that either ignores the ball or toy or picks it up and wants us to chase her.

Anything your dog puts in his mouth is prized to him or her. The first step in teaching your dog to retrieve is to get your dog excited to show you his "treasure". All your dog must do to learn this step is come back with the prize. The focus is on the BRING, not the GIVE.

1. First line up several toys and have some training treats available.

2. Then gently toss a toy a few feet away from you. Every time your dog brings you a toy, shower him or her with praise. Do not take the toy away at this time.

3. When your dog starts catching on and brings the toy back to you, say "Bring."

4. When your dog arrives, toy in mouth, praise and pet and you can also give a treat if you wish, leaving the object in his mouth. Return to the pile of toys and toss another toy.

5. If your dog ignores you when he picks up the toy, try running away from him after he has picked it up. If he still will not bring it back, you can pretend to eat some of his treat. When he brings the toy to you, shower him with praise but do not reach for the toy yet.

6. Once your dog is bringing his toy to you on the Bring command, you are ready for the next step.

GIVE

1. Giving up the object can be the trickiest part. This can be especially true if you have chased your dog for things in the past. Be patient, you are un-teaching a fun activity and it may take some time.

2. So NO MORE CHASING!! Instead offer something better.

3. Pull up a chair and line up some treats and your dog's favorite toy.

4. Call your dog over to you and show him the toy. Praise him when he takes it.

5. Next, with a treat in hand say, "Give". The treat should induce him to drop the toy. Reward the second he releases it.

6. Now go to a hallway or an enclosed space. Toss the toy.

7. Praise your dog the moment he picks it up and go to him and say, "Give". Reward the release.

8. Your dog may start releasing the ball as you approach or toss it on the ground near you. This is acceptable at first but you will need to be more selective with your rewards as you progress. Your dog should deliver the ball/toy mouth to hand. Here is how you can shape that behavior.

9. Go back to your chair and give your dog the toy. Say "Give" as you extend your hand under his mouth. If your dog drops the toy on the ground, ignore that behavior and begin again Reward the moment he drops it into your hand. If your dog is so obsessed with treats that he won't pay attention with treats around you may have to use extra praise and leave the treats out of the equation.

Once your dog has learned Bring and Give, it is time to put the two behaviors together

1. Go to a hallway or enclosed space.

2. Give the toy a short toss and tell your dog to "Bring" When your dog grabs it, cheerfully call him back to you.

3. Hold out your hand to retrieve the object. Tell him "Give" and reward your dog for a job well done. Repeat it a couple of more times and quit while things are going good.

4. Anyone wanting to teach your dog retrieve for the obedience ring will have to teach your dog with dowels and dumbbells made specifically for this purpose.

Give this a try and woof at us in the thread started in the group forum area. Let us know how you are doing8/22/2007

 

FIRSTAID DOG CHOCKING::::::::::

First Aid for Choking OF DOG:::

Choking is interference with breathing caused by foreign material in, or compression on, the trachea (windpipe).

If the Pet is Unconscious

Perform a Finger Sweep
Open your pet's mouth and perform a finger sweep by placing your finger along the inside of the mouth, sliding it down toward the center of the throat over the base of the tongue and gently "sweeping" toward the center to remove any foreign material. Warning: there is a structure deep in the throat (the Adam's Apple) that feels like a smooth bone. Do not attempt to pull it out!

Begin Rescue Breathing
Rescue breathing is described in the CPR article. If air is not entering the lungs, slap the pet's chest wall firmly or

perform the Heimlich maneuver by putting the pet on its back, placing your hands over the abdomen near the bottom of its rib cage, and gently, but firmly thrusting toward the spine.

Perform a finger sweep and begin rescue breathing. Repeat until the foreign body is clear and the lungs can be inflated. Transport to the veterinarian.

If the Pet is Conscious

Stay calm and try to keep the pet calm. If the pet is overheated, wrap him in a wet towel, and transport him to the veterinarian. Perform a finger sweep only if it will not excite the pet.

Frequently, pet owners confuse coughing with choking. Both cause the pet to forcefully exhale. With choking, the pet has difficulty inhaling. When coughing, the pet can inhale almost normally. Be careful to distinguish the two: attempting to give first aid to a pet who is merely coughing can injure the animal.

THANKYOU WINSTON MY DEAR SWEET FRIEND
