Welcome to Crazy for Dogs!

Sirius of the Week

Our submitter writes,

"Sophie is an ISSR Shiloh Shepherd. She is a dual bi-color black and tan plush coat. Sophie is about 4 months old in the picture. Sophie was born at New Zion (breed founder's kennel) in New York. When she was 10 weeks old she flew to Minnesota to join our family.

"Sophie's registered name is Zions Sophie of Sage, however the rest of the family knows her as Sophia Maria Colletta Regetti Gonzales. Sophie loves people and other dogs. Her best friend is Chewy who is a male Husky-Lab-Wolf mix. Sophie is an avid baseball fan, likes water sports, and crunches plastic bottles for the recycling."

Beware of Internet Puppy Scams: Unfortunately, unscrupulous people have been sending emails offering to sell pedigree puppies (bulldogs, pugs, and others). Similar phony websites are also on the web. These emails and websites are fake. They are designed to cheat you out of your money either by never sending you the puppy or by sending you a different dog from what you paid for. Your best bet: If you want a purebred, contact a local breed-specific rescue group. Or if you just want a new best friend, save a life from your local animal pound.

Some Dog Facts

  • Dogs bark to say that there is something strange happening and to be alert. The barking signals that something is happening -- such as someone arriving; once the new arrival has been identified, either a greeting takes place or an attack.
  • "Dew-claw" = An extra toe on the inside of the leg that is often, but not always, removed.
  • In the wild, a mother dog's pack-mates, possibly her own mother, or sisters, but any female, will help her with the puppies, and bring her food. A domesticated dog has a human pack to help.
  • Airedales are the largest of the terriers and exhibit all the typical terrier characteristics, including occasional stubborness!
  • "Badger" = a type of hair coloring that contains a blending of brown, black, white, and gray.
  • All dogs share the basic anatomy of the ear -- the outer ear or auricle, the ear canal, the eardrum, and the tympanic cavity. But the ears have different shapes and postures based upon the breed.
  • Chocolate can be fatal to dogs.
  • Dogs are members of the Canidae family, which also includes wolves and jackals.
