    Re: Random Fur Baby Thoughts......

    I have three dogs. I think when we adopted the youngest he learned most of his behaviors from the other two dogs AND the cat. He learned to sleep on the back of the couch like the cat. 70 lb dog and 8 lb cat laying nose to nose for a nap in the sun is the cutest thing.

    Someone up thread mentioned her dog giving hugs. My chocolate lab does the same thing. Puts his paws around your shoulders and lays his head against you. He'll also give our oldest dog a hug by putting his paws around him and laying his head on the older dog's head.

    But for fun stories... Yeah, the youngest dog takes the cake. A couple weeks ago he learned how to get into the porch swing and now sits and swings when he feels like it. He can work the lever for the fridge door ice machine. We have to keep it locked. He shoves his nose into the lower cabinet turnstile so he can lick the peanut butter jar. Ended up reorganizing the kitchen a little when I found that out. Keeping the bathroom door closed when showering is a must, else he joins you.

    He steals the tennis balls that the chocolate lab loves to fetch. And hides them beneath his body while the other dog goes searching for it. So he can be a bit evil too.

    His stories are endless.

    Is he a Lab? Daughters lab eats anything. I think they make doggie mouthwash. Good luck getting him to smell better. Kathy

    Ok. Daughter has twin boys, goats, ducks,chicken,cats,dogs and just recently a piglet. Ducks & goats are my favorite. Second year she had ducks, was bone dry here. Pond was so low it was more of a street puddle. The newest ducks learned to swim in a big plastic pool in the chicken yard. Six months or so passed and the pond was finally and deep enough for duck swimming. SIL picked up the Drake one Sunday morning and headed for the pond with all the ducks following behind. SIL tossed him in the pond and the ducks followed. They swam around for about 5 minutes, then started climbing out on the edge of the pond the . There was a great deal of loud quacking and beak poking. Finally, the drake climbed up the bank out onto the grass,waddled across the yard, and up the side of the house with all the ducks behind. Stopped when he got to the back corner of the house, looked left then right. Saw the chicken coop, turned right and he and his entourage disappeared behind the house. SIL sprinted across the yard and arrived at the chicken coop just it time to open the door to let them in. Where they got into the big blue pool for a swim. We had a good laugh. Kathy

    Re: Random Fur Baby Thoughts......

    My cocker Spaniel loved to go everywhere with me... And I loved to go fishing.. need less to say I had trouble keeping Tuffy on the dock or bank with me.. everytime My bobbin would do a little bounce (fish nibbling on the bait) He was in the water and hauling the line back to me. One summer he caught more fish than I did..

    I was always afraid to get the hook in him.. but never did.

    We have had 4 dogs (we always have 2 at a time) since we have lived in our home. The first was an Old English sheepdog, Daisy. We have a mail slot in the door, and the mailman would stick the mail in and jiggle it before it dropped on the floor. I don't know if he was trying to manuver it in, or teasing her, but as soon as the flap creaked up she was on it, shredding it like it was her j.o.b! Well, she taught the 'free' puppy our daughter brought home from college (that is now my buddy), and then the first Wheaten, learned from him, and now Oshie, our second Wheaton who is crazy as a mad hatter. Needless to say, the inside of my front door has been attacked so often it is ridiculous.

    Daisy, the sheepdog was a piece of work too. Sweet as could be but stubborn as heck. She ate EVERYTHING when she was a pup - daughters panties (hacked them up at the groomers, and they saved them in a baggie in case we wanted tham - uhm no!), 5lb bag of potatoes, bucket of crawdads (she always fished with me), every bootie our youngest had ended up in a poo pile (never had 2 socks that matched), and a crisp $50 bill I left on the table for daughter going on a trip. It might sound like I was a bad Mom, but she was fast and sneaky! She could grab those infant booties while you had babies butt in the air doing a change, and was off before you could do anything! I got the first Wheaten thinking he was sort of like a sheepdog, but calmer HAHAHAH - Definitely not! We laigh and say we have to keep them because nobody else would put up eith them. And - all but the free puppy have been to formal obedience school....and flunked!

    I guess you can train ducks, too!

    Re: Random Fur Baby Thoughts......

    When I was very young, we had a black lab "Max" that use to follow us kids when we would go fishing at the lake down the road. When Max would get bored watching us fish, he would go swimming and catch a duck. He would carry the duck home completely unharmed, but pissed as all get out, where Mom would make him drop it, then she would feed Max, and feed the duck. Eventually this happened so often, that the ducks started gathering around Max at the lake, waiting! And when it was time to go home, there would be Max leading a parade of ducks.

    Last year about this time we found a very young kitten in our chicken pen. We joke that she thinks she is a chicken. She follows the chickens everywhere, eats the table scraps with them and roosts on the end of the 2x4 we use for a roosting pole (she sits at the same end every night). It's so cute to go out at night with a flashlight and count "all" the chickens.

She stands on the horses rump, puts her front paws on friends shoulders,and looks out over friends head as they ride off. When she gets tired,she sits with her paws against friends back. People going by on the hard road have stopped to watch this spectacle. Kathy
    When I was young, I had a part Shepherd, part Rat Terrier that would do the same thing. But he usually waited til he got tired running alongside.

    I enjoyed all the Fur Baby posts so far but this one I love, this Collie sounds like Lassie.

But they wouldn't stop. She tried blocking them. They kept going. She tugged on their coats to stop them. Still they kept heading towards the unsafe ice. So she ran ahead of the kids and got on the ice. She fell through and that is how she got her point across. She was not hurt and got home safely.
