Welcome to Crazy for Dogs!

Sirius of the Week

Our submitter writes,

"Travis was a "used" dog -- found running loose by a friend and brought to our house to be the official outside dog. He has a wonderfully kind disposition -- readily accepting the advances of the resident Jack Russells. Travis loves to be with people, and will hop into the car or truck in the hopes of going for a ride any time the door is open. He also is very obedient, and is a great companion when we take the horses out for a trail ride."


Here he is hanging out in the hay barn, enjoying himself.

dog

He's having fun mucking about in the mud and water on vacation in New Mexico. His person-mom says that he is such a good dog who never needed to be on a leash. So he could do whatever he wanted, because he always came when called. Unlike his Jack Russell canine siblings.

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

  • The coat of the Weimaraner is almost always short and dense. It can be roebuck, silvery grey, mousy-grey, and all intervening shades of grey. Occasionally there will be white patches on the chest and/or paws.
  • In the 17th century, the German Short-haired Pointer was prized by German nobility and by poachers (the latter for the dogs' night-time hunting skills).
  • The Chesapeake Bay Retriever originated in the early 1800s from Newfoundland dogs and American retrievers in the Chesapeake Bay area.
  • 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.
  • Dogs need about half the protein that cats do, so do not feed cat food to a dog.
  • Between the age of 3 and 4 weeks, puppies can wag their tails.
  • "Setter" = A type of dog that has long hair and that freezes when it spots game, only moving when commanded to flush out the game.
  • The healthy newborn puppy is blind, deaf, toothless, and hungry. It can drag itself around to find a teat (but it cannot walk) and it can suck.
