  1. Angel does something very similar. She will squat to pee if recalled and she needs a few more seconds. Talk about checkmate, because what can you do about it?
  2. Sorry to hear about what you are having to go through. Hopefully it will all work out for you in the long run! I really think this is GREAT advice. I wish I would have bought the place I lived in in college. At the least... buy a place and get 1 decent roomate! Everyone wins!
  3. I have a blast... I sit outside with dog and cat and hand out candy. They get to meet and greet every kid that wants to pet them. It is a tough job... LOL.
  4. Mine systematically dis assembles her toys. I buy toys that are "permanent" adn treats that are toysthat are easily disassembled! She loves doing it and never bothers anything esle... so I figure what is the harm in a squeakie a week or so!
  5. Cute! Glad to see she is doing well! I like the album software too... I deal with a few sports teams that make make easy work for me! I'll definately be checking it out!
  6. Angel will almost always nip a humper. Once she has established that they will not be humping her... everything is fine.
  7. Although I do not live in NC, I am a member, volunteer, foster, and transport for several groups in the NC area. Friends of Rocky Mount (FOR) is one of the best run rescue operations that I have ever seen! For what it is worth (and to show there is a positive here too!), here is a picture of the last foster I had from FOR. I saw her in her forever home last weekend... when Angel (My dog and also a PB BC rescue) stayed the weekend because I had to go out of town. The friend that kept her said he woke up in the middle of the night and Angel and Victoria were both cuddled up together sleeping peacefully in the same crate. Day of rescue Safe at my house waiting for her new forever family to pick her up! Rescue makes that happen, but it takes people, volunteers and money to make rescue work! Please donate your time and efforts where you can. Every little bit helps.
  8. OK... I run Angel pretty much everyday so she is in excellent condition. I started her off at a mile and increased from there to get her fit. In the spring, we had a nice cool day and we went MTN biking. Everyone was on single speeds so the pace was not super fast, but constant. We rode for 5.5 hours, with a nice little stop for lunch (she chased gees most of this time). There was a lot of places for her to take a dip, but she was out in front most of the day, and even dug out a toy to play when we got back to the truck. My buddy just laughed and said, "Well you are right... she does like to ride!"
  9. Ahhh... I backpack a lot so whatever I am taking it is on my pack and adds weight! Favorites: Tyson 98 Percent Fat Free Premium Chunk Chicken Breast In Water is vacuum sealed chicken that is precooked and really great! I take beans and rice and add chicken with a bit of seasoning. Works great for two people. I also love the noodles and sauce with chicken or tuna. Dehydrated fruit from the asian store (snack) Dehydrated resberries and oatmeal (breakfast) Dehydrated mushrooms also are GREAT! They really spice up any dish. When I go canoeing... I can take a big cooler and tend to really do it right. Eggs, bacon, sasauge, hash brown potatoes, corned beef hash lunches... turkey and provolone Dinners (freeze meat and put in cooler): Chicken the first night... Steaks the second... fire pies as mentioned above are always good... I love baked potatoes in the fire. This seasoning goes a long way with anything meat eggs, potatoes: http://www.foodservicedirect.com/index.cfm..._Seasonings.htm Ahhh... I can wait to get out again now!!! Bummer I'll have to wait a few weeks... HAVE FUN!!! And always remember to pack about 1/3 of the cooler with ice... and drain it. It will make the cold and the ice last longer!
  10. Angel is a blue/tri merle. She is ABCA breed and her sister is mostly black and white, but has a little brown in her. It VERY irresponsible to breed merle to merle, in attempts to gain more merle.
  11. Keith, I understand the point you were trying to make, but I'm sure you'd agree that there are a great many decent, hardworking people in poor neighborhoods who would never dream of subjecting any dog to this kind of cruelty. [/QB]Glad you chimed in... with a lot more statistic and background than I possess. Yep... 100% agreement. The only poeple that are making money off of the labors and pain of others are the weak and the lazy. As soon as you are in that category, I know you are not decent and hard working. I just get so tired of the 'killer' pitbull mentality. What is realyl the difference between a BC that has ahad a rough go at it and a staffy? Not really that much. My friend who is a vet in a small city near a rural area of Pa, has had more serious bites from BC's than pitts or any other 'bully' breed.
  12. I had a lengthy 'debate' with a fella I met one night at a work party. He was a tough guy that grew up in nothern new jersey, fighting dogs. He had long since given up that lifestyle, but argued as to why it was wrong. He was actually a very streetwise and intelligent business man. Although I disagreed with him, he made some points that I had never really thought about. The one thing that he also said, was the "best" dog he ever knew... was a family pet. Played lovingly with the kids by day, and did his "job" by night. He said a lot of those dogs were much better cared for than any other pets. I disagreed with this guy to the end, but it was a very interesting conversation to see how folks have different opinions of animals based on their social background. For a woodsman a dog is a hunting tool. For a rancher a dog is a stock tool. For innercity slums a dog is an inverstment to make money. In many parts of the world a dog is a tasty meal. In reality, what makes fighting a dog and caring for it worse than someone that breeds crappy dogs to crappy dogs and sells them to unsuspecting or ignorant people for an exhorbitent profit? Who is doing the most dis-service without being responsible for their actions? I would suggest that a guy fighting a dog would spend more time and care to protect his investment than a for shit breeder that knows another litter will be on it's way shortly. All said... I DISAGREE WITH FIGHTING DOGS, and CRAPPY BREEDERS so spare me the barrage. It is sad to hear that people take advantange of those that can not speak for themselves, albeit animals, children, or whatever else may be in the way.
  13. Ahhh... and not ot sound like a meanie, but Angel knows the command "off" really well. Off of me... off the sofa, off the chair, off the bed... off the visitor... and "get out" is another fun one.
  14. Turning will only teach a dog to jump on your back. Best two tactics I know are borderline compulsion training. 1) get a thumb in between their collar bone as they are coming up. This is the soft spot on their chest slightly offset from the breast bone. Be warned, you will hear a loud yelp. 2) squeeze paws when they make it onto you.
