  1. Adorable! Congrats I've often thought if I had a brown and tan Kelpie, I would name him that.
  2. I know a bunch of you have seen this on facebook already, but it's kind of fun dog vision simulator: http://www.wolframalpha.com/widgets/gallery/view.jsp?id=125a6a47bc73b0269276cd2dd58d84f1
  3. another thanks for a great read then! And a question about feeding: it's often recommended to wait an hour or two after feeding to avoid bloat or other gastric distress. Do huskies not get that? Are the types of food given just easily/quickly digestible? Or is there some other strategy at work here.
  4. FM should be the model: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_FM
  5. My girl has been getting a lot of "ear-itations" (sorry) lately. There's some red-brown gunk accumulated that I removed using cotton pads with a little oil on them. I've had to do this 3 or 4 times in the past couple of months, but it doesn't seem to have come back after the last cleaning. I assumed it was from swimming, and maybe the subsequent scratching. Wondering now, after the thread with the anal glands.

    ANgry A hole

    I usually rinse my dog after a swim, but either wait till I get home, or I carry a couple of gallon jugs of water in the car for that purpose. It's mostly so my furniture doesn't smell like seagull poop - not sure why water on the fur would affect the stomach. Call me prematurely old-codgerish, but I got pretty irritated when some guy shuffled up the driveway and peed into my fence. I mean, it's just eight feet off the public sidewalk, but still....
  7. I live in a small apartment, and yes, the XL plastic airline crate takes up a lot of room, but my dog likes it and hangs out quite a bit there of her own accord (door open). I shut her in there for the ocassional time-out, but also for when work is being done around the place. As a renter, I have little to no control over when that will happen, and the handyman/plummer/construction workers don't deserve having a dog harassing them while they work (the electrician, on the other hand... )
  8. Here's the forum thread where the rescue was initiated, if you're interested: http://14ers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36893 edit: it's a very long thread - 46 pages, you know how things get - and the actual rescue occurs around page 17 or 18. http://14ers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36893&start=204#p440131 edit edit: here's where the owner chimes in: http://14ers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36893&start=252#p440312 edit edit edit (sorry): more pictures http://14ers.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=36893&start=372#p440514
  9. This is the local company that clears brush on the hills for fire prevention: http://www.goatsrus.com/dogs.htm . They use electronet to contain the goats, and move them with dogs.
  10. I'm in - haven't decided if I'll make the drive up there again, but would like to help out.
  11. Pointy Puppy!!! It's great to see you two again.
  12. I puzzled over this for a few minutes - chickens swim? Buddy herds chickens? Time for that second cup of coffee!
  13. here's a cool video slideshow of the changing GSD: maybe googling some of the names would get you usable still shots? googling "historic German shepherd" and "historic basset hound" got a few hits http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&rlz=1C1AFAB_enUS440&biw=1366&bih=643&tbm=isch&tbnid=Q5pJjEPJBTdN6M:&imgrefurl=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v485/Pietoro/Dog%2520Breed%2520Historical%2520Pictures/%3Faction%3Dview%26current%3D1891_BassetHound.jpg%26currenttag%3Dbasset%2520hound&docid=yz8a8DQuiNNsMM&itg=1&imgurl=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v485/Pietoro/Dog%252520Breed%252520Historical%252520Pictures/1891_BassetHound.jpg&w=469&h=334&ei=OnAPT8SWLMKniALjmuzrAQ&zoom=1 http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&rlz=1C1AFAB_enUS440&biw=1366&bih=643&tbm=isch&tbnid=eZ9uYcDX4ag3gM:&imgrefurl=http://retrieverman.wordpress.com/2011/01/15/the-outcross-that-saved-the-basset-hound/&docid=R4_bMc72SxoYUM&imgurl=http://retrieverman.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/rawdon-lee-bassets.jpg&w=750&h=445&ei=WXAPT5H2MaTjiALkypDSDQ&zoom=1 http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&sa=X&rlz=1C1AFAB_enUS440&biw=1366&bih=643&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=JPRi40TEBbwGbM:&imgrefurl=http://www.pedigreedatabase.com/german_shepherd_dog/dog.html%3Fid%3D1208&docid=C9eed1gdXDWQiM&imgurl=http://cdn.pedigreedatabase.com/pictures/1208.jpg&w=449&h=365&ei=MG8PT8q8K9HUiALCvNHGDQ&zoom=1 ETA: might be worth looking up Rin Tin Tin as well, what with the renewed interest there should be lots available.
  14. Hattrick looks familiar - hasn't ChristineR posted a picture of him at some point?
