11:11 pm - Agility Fun On A Rainy Day by Brad Carlson - ArticleCity.com
kassa6542 Agility Fun On A Rainy Day
 by: Brad Carlson
Ok, its raining outside again for the past five days. I want to train my young pup, but what can I do, I feel we're both stuck inside and bored.

Break out the pause table. Or keep one in your living room as a continuous fixture as we do. The pause table is a magical training box that brings out the best in sit stays, down stays, "Go" and "Come". Building your "Go Table": develop your distance from the table in small increments, send your dog to the table as you move further and further away from the table, wind your way into other rooms. Follow your dog to the table at a distance, always staying behind him.

Get a second table so that you have two pause tables that you can use at the same time. Start with the tables about 10 feet apart. Send your dog to one of the tables, "Go Table, practice sit stay, you move to the opposite side of the other table, call your dog to the table, "Come Table". Build distance by moving the tables apart and into other rooms.

Setup two chairs like a jump, but don't use a jump bar. Have your dog go between the two chairs like jump uprights. Practice with your dog at different angles to the chairs and different distances. Use four or more chairs and have your dog weave between them. You may need to start on leash until your dog gets the idea of weaving with the chairs.

Practice your directional commands around sofas or stuffed chairs. Starting with your dog on leash walk up to the end of the sofa, use your "Out" command, with the leash guide your dog away to one side of the sofa, while you walk on the other side. Make sure you work your dog on both of your sides, sending your dog "Out" from your left side and then "Out" from your right side. Practice with different pieces of furniture and at varies distances.

8:11 pm - The Fearless and Friendly Boxer Dog
lavos5623 The Fearless and Friendly Boxer Dog
 by: Mike Mathews
It is hard to imagine that a dog breed descended from the mastiff-type dogs of war and one whose progenitors were used for bull and bear baiting, is now one of the most popular family-oriented breeds in the world.
The popular Boxer dog is a playful clown that continues to display youthful exuberance from its puppy stage to its senior years. Boxers are a courageous, good-natured, friendly, energetic, loyal, fun-loving, and family-oriented dog breed. Boxers love children and will suffer all sorts of child inflicted indignities with stoicism. However toddlers and young children should be carefully supervised with excited adolescent and young Boxers who can accidentally knock them over. The boxer is a large and strong dog that must be socialized thoroughly and obedience trained while a puppy and that training must be continued through adolescence to control its exuberance. The Boxer can be overly protective of the children in the family when roughhousing with friends and must be thoroughly socialized and trained to minimize any aggressive tendencies. The breed is naturally suspicious of strangers and usually makes a good watchdog. The Boxer is fairly intelligent and eager to please and can be trained to higher levels for obedience competitions and even for agility competitions. Additional information on activities for dogs can be found in my article: Fun Dog Activities. Unfortunately the Boxer has a stubborn streak that will show up from time to time. He will suddenly refuse to entertain commands that he has been obeying for years and look at you with an inquisitive or even a mischievous expression. However the endless hours of fun and entertainment provided by the Boxer, more than compensate for the stubborn streak.
The Boxer is a medium- to large-sized muscular dog with a blunt and expressive face and a docked tail. Male Boxers stand 22 to 25 inches tall at shoulder height and weigh from 65 to 70 pounds. Females are slightly smaller at 21 to 23.5 inches tall and weigh 55 to 65 pounds. The Boxers ears are generally cropped in the U.S. and Canada but left uncropped in England and some European countries. The Boxer's short, smooth and shiny coat is usually red, fawn or brindle in color. Some Boxers have white markings on their coats but too much white color has been discouraged. The Boxer's coat is easy to care for and requires only an occasional brushing with a soft brush and a rub down with a chamois cloth. This dog breed is a low to moderate shedder.
The early ancestors of the Boxer are thought to be the large and courageous dogs of war that were used in ancient Greek and Roman times. These ancient dogs were later called Molossians after the modern Albanian city of Molossis. When these Molossians spread across Europe they became the ancestors of many modern dog breeds including the British Mastiff, the Swiss Saint Bernard, and the German Bullenbeiser. The Bullenbeiser was a large and strong hunting dog that the aristocracy developed to hunt bears, wild boar and other large game. Later the fearless Bullenbeisers were used as guard dogs and unfortunately also for the cruel sports of dog fighting, bear baiting and bull baiting. Eventually two lines evolved - the larger Danzigers and the smaller Brabanters. The Brabanter was crossed with an early version of the English Bulldog to produce the modern Boxer. The first Boxer was registered in Germany in 1895 and the breed's numbers increased rapidly until World War I. The British Boxer Club was established in 1936 and despite the outbreak of World War II, the bloodlines survived in both Germany and Britain. The Boxer was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1915. The line has continued to evolve and most of the aggressive tendencies have been bred out of the modern Boxer. Today's Boxer has become a very popular family dog and is ranked 7th out of 154 dog breeds in 2004 AKC registrations.
Boxers need regular exercise and do best with an active family. They like lots of attention and can become somewhat destructive if bored. Boxers do not like inclement weather and are sensitive to heat and humidity and shouldn't be taken jogging or cycling during hot summer days. Boxers, being intelligent animals, like to remain in the shade or inside in air conditioned comfort on hot days. Boxers can even adapt to apartment living if they are exercised regularly.
Boxers are normally a fairly healthy dog breed that can be expected to live for 9 to 11 years. Boxers, like most short-muzzled dogs, may snore and suffer from flatulence.
Common inherited health problems include: hip dysplasia; hypothyroidism; corneal dystrophy eye disorders; cardiomyopathy and sub aortic stenosis (SAS) heart diseases; and bloat. Information on these inherited diseases and ways to help control bloat can be found in my article: Hereditary Diseases. Before you buy a Boxer puppy make sure you ask the breeder for the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) results for hip dysplasia and thyroid and the Canine Eye Registry (CERF) recent ophthalmologists report for both the sire and dam.
If you are seriously interested in acquiring a Boxer then you should check with your national pure-bred dog organizations such as the American (.akc.org) or Canadian Kennel (.ckc.com) Clubs to look for conformation shows in your area. Make sure you talk to owners and breeders at these shows to see if your lifestyle is really suited to this breed. Additional information on Boxers and on specific shows and competitions in your area can be found by checking with the national Boxer clubs which are The American Boxer Club in the US and The Boxer Club Of Canada in Canada. Both of these umbrella organizations will point you to the local chapter closest to your home that may be able to provide you with information on reputable breeders. They should also provide you with information on Boxer rescue organizations in case you wish to obtain an adult dog.

1:11 pm - The Top Three Pet Rat Training Mistakes
dorromon4756 The Top Three Pet Rat Training Mistakes
 by: Colin Patterson
It can be very rewarding to train your pet rats to do tricks and learn obstacle courses. Since they tend to be highly intelligent creatures, rats can actually learn a lot (and get bored if they have nothing to do).
Furthermore, because they're people-pleasers, rats enjoy the challenge of striving for your reward and praise.
However, before you begin training, you may be interested to know the main pitfalls of pet rat training. That way, you can get started on the right foot and make the most of training time. Here are the top three mistakes that novice rat-trainers will often make:
1. Neglecting to create a stimulating living environment for their rats.
Sometimes trainers make the mistake of thinking that their ratties' living environment doesn't need to be interesting or fun to be in. They seem to think that an hour of play time or training time is enough to stimulate their little minds.
This is untrue.
Rats are constantly problem-solving, 24/7. Giving them a stimulating and challenging living environment will ensure that their minds stay sharp for learning tricks.
- Buy or build a large caged enclosure complete with shelves, ramps, ladders, cubby holes, bins, hammocks, exercise wheels, tunnels, hidey holes, baskets and ropes strung across.
- Occasionally, treat them to a game of "hide n' seek" with sunflower seeds. Hide them in hard-to-reach places so they really have to think hard about how to get to them.
- Be sure to adjust and rearrange the furniture and food locations. Always keep 'em guessing.
- Make playtime games challenging as well with swimming pools, sand boxes and tunnel-mazes.
2. Being too "results oriented" about training.
One major pitfall a rat owner can fall into is to be too demanding about what is to be accomplished during training. This approach to rat-training will only end in frustration and neglect.
Never forget that training is just an extension of play time and that repetition, along with positive reinforcement, is the key to success.
3. Forgetting to reinforce old tricks.
As the saying goes "If you don't use it, you lose it." The first-time rat trainer will often teach his rats a few basic tricks, move on to other ones for several weeks, only to discover that his rats have forgotten the first tricks!
Just because a rat learns a trick, it does not mean that the little guy will remember it later. Reinforcement is everything. This is why, when teaching a rat to run an obstacle course, the trainer must tack a new obstacle onto the one(s) that were previously learned. Otherwise, the rat will fail to remember the first obstacles learned.
So, remember: keep their lives full of challenges at all times; try to be patient and not to get too attached to results and accomplishments; and don't take it for granted that they will remember those first tricks they learned... because they won't. Repeat and reinforce their learning at all times!
Knowing about these three major pitfalls will go a long way in helping you to make the most of your rats' intelligences and abilities; and as long as you are together, you will look forward to training time every single day.

Because of the overwhelmingly positive response and generosity of family and friends old and new, and the fact that we are thisclose to reaching our goal, I've scheduled Stubby's surgery for July 2nd!

So, the last day to donate via PayPal will be June 27th! Donations made directly to the vet's office can be made all the way through July 2nd.

If you've already donated, THANK YOU!!

surgery4stubby
What a wonderful day today! Not only did Dr. Crocker's office agree to accept donations on Stubby's behalf (see my earlier posts for that info), we raised $250! Much of that $250 came from the support of the LJ communities, so from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!

Since the fundraising is going so well (we're only about $250 short of our goal!), I was able to go ahead and schedule Stubby's surgery for July 2nd. He's having his bloodwork done next week, and I'm hopeful that we'll have a reason for why his teeth are in such bad shape.

I'm very grateful for and encouraged by all the positive feedback I've gotten...even the negative feedback has helped me to improve the way I'm doing things, so that's awesome.

So, if you've already donated, THANK YOU!! And if you haven't, please consider it...if you're unable to, prayers and well-wishes are accepted, too :-)

I recently posted a fund-raising request for donations to help cover the costs of extensive dental surgery for Stubby, a sweet little guy I'm fostering. Several folks suggested that they'd feel more comfortable donating directly to the vet's office than to me, which I understand completely. I thought that was a great idea, so I contacted my vet's office today, and they've graciously agreed to accept check and/or credit/debit card donations on Stubby's behalf.

Checks can be made payable to Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic. Please be sure to reference 'Account #30919' in the check's memo field.

Credit/debit card donations can be taken over the phone by calling (937) 435-3262. Again, please be sure to reference Account #30919. Their mailing address is:

Thank you so much to those who have already donated!

1:11 am - Easy Tips For House Breaking Your Puppy
lavos5623 Easy Tips For House Breaking Your Puppy
 by: Dy Witt
If you are lucky enough to get a 7-week-old puppy, there is no excuse for any bad habits to develop over his lifetime. Puppies learn INSTANTLY when they are that young, and if you use the proper training methods, gentle but consistent, he will behave like an angel his whole life through.
The most important training, of course, is housebreaking. Boys are easier than girls because exploring outside is their favorite thing. They just cannot get enough of all the new smells out there!
The main key to housebreaking is watching. Watch your puppy AND the clock. Once every hour is not too often on a day he is active and the weather is good. The younger the pup, the more often he needs to go out, mostly because he is growing so fast. He must drink more water to fuel his metabolism than he does as an adult. Also, since he eats three or four times a day, you know what that means.
Watch him for subtle changes. If he is happily chewing his toy, and gets up suddenly with his nose to the floor, move quickly! He is ready to squat! If he has had a nice nap, get him out of his crate and outside right away. If he has just had a good grooming, it stimulates his circulation and guess what? Time to go out again. And of course after a meal, watch him extra close.
Things to remember:
---Do not punish him for mistakes. They are YOUR fault. Every time you take him out he will go, and praise praise and praise! Happy face, laughter, happy noises! He loves your happy face. When he makes a mistake, your frown and your face turned away from him is all the punishment he needs. He will get the point.
---He is learning English, you must use the same phrases over and over. "Good go potty!" "Hafta go potty?" "Wanna go potty?" He can learn in one afternoon that "go potty" means a jaunt outside and your happy face. Whatever phrase you choose, stick with it.
---I cannot recommend strongly enough getting a crate. They truly help with all phases of his training. They make him more secure, provide him with his very own private space and a place for him to hide his favorite toys and chewies. This is even more important if you have other adult dogs in the house.
Be consistent, always be kind and gentle, and be patient as he learns your language, and your puppy will always look forward to his training sessions. Dogs love to work!

Anyone wanting to help animals or wanting a pet....

Taken from a site:

About 130 dogs rescued from a puppy mill in Virginia will be up for adoption Friday at the North Shore Animal League in Port Washington NY, an official with the group said.

More than 980 dogs were rescued from a puppy mill in Carroll County, Va., last week by about 25 animal rescue organizations, said Devera Lynn, North Shore's vice president of communications. The league is taking in 132 dogs -- the most of any organization.

"You can tell they've never had any human contact before," Lynn said at the shelter Saturday amid a symphony of barks and howls. "But you can see they've been craving it."

7:01 pm - Animal Abuse in Ukraine

help_animal
www.MatesMaster.com friends and romance network, the site which is constantly involved in Animal Welfare programs, joins forces with Kiev City Society for the Protection of Animals in protest to the inhumane treatment of animals, abuse and cruelty in Ukraine.

About 156,000 stray cats and dogs are annually hurt, abused and killed in Ukrainian citiesand towns. When caught by the dog catchers, some stray animals are used forpainful experiments.
Stray dogs are often bludgeoned or put to death by electricity or caught using an inhumane poison and sometimes die slow, painful deaths. Instead of putting an animal to sleep with the use of euthanasia (i.e. the act of killing an animal painlessly), the animal service uses dithylinum (suxamethonium chloride), a poison which paralyzes the animal and causes it to die of suffocation in a few hours of agony. There is ample evidence that the poor creatures are still conscious and feel all the pain before they die. It is often the case that animals are beaten with legs and metal sticks, whereupon they are buried or burned alive.

Lots of people witnessed animals being tortured and murdered - little kittens tied up in plastic bags and thrown in the river, people intentionally run stray pets over with their cars, newly born puppies dumped on vacant land without their mother and left them to die.
Stories are endless and make hearts of every Human Being bleed.

Authorities of small Ukrainian communities for ever used and are still using different kind of poison - rat poison and recently they "discovered" a new method of killing stray animals - Isoniazidum (Tubazidum) anti-tuberculosis drug causing cheap, but very slow and painful death

more information is available here: www.MatesMaster.com/petrescue.html

2:49 pm - I've decided to basically fight

seeds_of_change
I've decided to basically fight a crusade for people's privacy rights here on livejournal.
The user scarlette the other day got into my credit report and posted personal info. not available in the public domain.
This probably had something with the guy assumably saying he's a PI.
This is extemely creepy and I believe to a point, possibly illegal.
I believe this is a huge breach of people's privacy rights, encourages identity theft and allows for continual harassment here on LJ.

Other users including OOgoddess and paigegirl, keep backing up the guy, because he part of their circle of friends or clique and now are using their lj's and communities to mounting a massive defamitory campaign.
One full of extreme lies and deceit.

Even going as far as to try and get me booted from communities not even involved.

Boo F@#king hoo, go ahead, life goes on and the dollar ammount keeps going up the more you do.

I'm also building a website and lj community for when this goes to the press so they will have all amterial for them to easily access and reference to.


I will wait and see what lj abuse does before moving forward.
I went and talked to a lawyer using a free consultation and he informed me, that suit wise this could be huge.
One of those deals that makes the news and is worth millions as it has now happened to over 20 users and could reach class action status.

I hate to sue Six Apart and the livejournal domain but these activities cannot keep happening and they turn a blind eye.
I've aso been advised that a little negative press and bad attention should make both parties become more aggressive in stopping these crimes aganst it's members.

This will be a safe and sain place for people to come minus the harassment and illegal activities and I will do everything within my power to bring about much needed change.
Sometimes people or comapnies just need a little pressure in the right direction to get the ball rolling.

Suit goes live monday for discovery, faxes (press releases) go out like mad Sunday night so they will hit the eearly week press cycle.
We have sent out feelers to several major news webs and a few like Wired and the Washington Post have showed interest.
I imagine many more will when this goes live.

Let's see what the court of public opinion and the civil courts will think of these serious breaches of trust.
I will prevail!

Cross post here in abuse_lj and my own journal...
I encourage comments and feedback on both as to what people think from both sides of this issue..thanks..
Soon also the new community and website..

9:36 pm - Turtles with other animals?

use009
Currently, I'm owned by three cats (twin boys and a little princess), three dogs ([three boys]one we're fostering, and two german shep. mixes), and two fish (a male beta and a gold fish).

My question is if anyone could tell me how a land turtle interacts with cats and/or dogs? All dogs are outside 3/4ths of the time (by their own will I might add, so no one goes off on me :P) and the cats are indoor (for the most part). So I supose my biggest question is how a turtle would react to cats and vice versa. I havn't read up much on turtles as of yet so any helpful links would be appreciated as well. Thnx! =^.^=

2:07 pm - 2 adorable adoptable dogs near Philadelphia

goliard
My housemate rescued these while they were trying to cross the expressway. They are Shepherd-Sheltie mixes, brothers, about 4-5 months old, smart and sweet natured. They're at the SPCA in Media and we're trying to get them adopted before they are euthanized.

If you're interested in giving a home to one or both, either call my housemate Iris for more info, (215) 727-1218, cell (215) 840-6489, or call the Media SPCA directly: (610) 566-1370 ext 1. The dogs' IDs are 72220 and 72221, they were brought in 9/24 from Upper Chichester by officer Allan Strickler.

Please spread the word! They are really gorgeous. Thanks, and sorry for the reckless cross-posting :)

4:50 pm - Please Help

fallenangeljohn
Hey Everyone:

John here, and I need to ask all of you a favor, which is why I'm making a public entry about what's been going on, and hopefully I can get help from you guys, if you think I deserve the help that is. I'll tell you guys what's going on, then ask the favor, and you guys decide if you'll do it or not.. I hope you will though.

Alright, so the thing is that we moved into an apartment temporarily because the house we wanted to buy went all the way to the final process before falling through, meaning, that, we ended up not being able to buy the house we wanted to. This was a predicament since we, ourselves had to sleep in hotels for a few nights, basically, we were homeless. Of course though, the hotel didn't let dogs go there, neither did they allow dogs at the apartment we moved into afterwards. So what were we suppose to do?

We had the options of kennels, but to a dog that's kind of like sentencing them to jail, and we didn't want to do that especially since we weren't to sure how long we would be at the apartment. We didn't want our dog, Maven, to suffer there needlessly. So, we decided to ask Saveadog organization where we adopted her from to watch Maven for us. They agreed that they would be able to watch Maven for as long as possible for us.

Now, that seemed like such a good idea since Saveadog, obviously, has many dog loving families, so many that we figured it would be better than to send Maven to the kennels. So we contacted Saveadog, Shirley Moore, head of Saveadog, agreed to watch our dog for as long as possible, however, when we brought our dog to her she made us sign a form that would relinquish Maven if we didn't ask for her back by June 26th, 2004. She told us it was only a formality and she knew that we cared about our dog and that it was only in case families used Saveadog as an excuse to abandon their dogs. So we signed it.

E-mails were sent out to Mary Dillion who was the foster mother of Maven while we were searching for a temporary home for ourselves to live in. After we found where we ourselves would live we would move into a permanant home shortly afterwards. Finals came up on me, and I had to study, and pull grades up as the year ended, this however, wound up taking up a lot of time, three weeks out of the four that Shirley had us sign. Since she told us that it was only a formality my family did not think much of it, and continued thinking that Shirley would watch our dog as she agreed.

June 30th came around and things had finally calmed down. We were moving quickly in the process of house searching, we had found a great house for us and a nice big yard for Maven. School ended and we finally had time to settle things down, however, June 30th was the day Shirley, inconsiderately, called my dad up when he was at work, it was a "courtesy call" as she claims, and it was to inform us that she had given our dog away to a different family.

Following her call my father called me and as a result I called Shirley back. My father told me that Shirley had told him to find a way to break the news to me since she would not do it, however, his way of breaking the news was to call Shirley. So I did. After talking to Shirley on the phone she informed me the following things:

She did not believe my family capable of taking care of Maven.
She called my parents "irresponsible" and "uncaring"
She claimed that Maven suffered in the two years that she lived with us.
Now, this was not what she told my father. She told my father that the period was over and we did not claim Maven, as a result she gave her away. Shirley gave me completely different reasons, and told me that she had not given Maven away yet, when she clearly told my father that she had.

Following are e-mails that were sent between me and her as a result of this ( situation: )


This is the situation that has been going on and these are the facts:
My mom did sign the form, with the agreement that it was only a formality.
Shirley lied to my parents and lied to me, what's to prevent her from lying further?
After four days of the expired time she is so quickly able to give Maven to another family? This is suspicious.
She claims that no contact was ever made checking up on Maven, and yet, there they are, and there was the e-mail that was never replied back to me which, as a result was lost.
What is her claim that my parents wouldn't pay for it? I mean, I don't have a job, where would I have gotten the money from?
Her "courtesy call" was a joke, it was only to tell us when we had nothing we could do that she was giving our dog away. That is not a courtesy call, that's being malicious.
What truth is she talking about, for me to realize? That she's a lying cheat? She doesn't explain herself, the time doesn't add up, she insults my parents, and she refuses to give me correspondence with her attorney through e-mail? When I explained to her that I wanted written records of everything that has occured?
This is what happened, these are the e-mails, these are what I believe to be the facts. I hope that any of you who read this will form your own judgement of what has come to pass but in a closing word I would like to mention just a bit more.

I cared about my dog and when I finished with her I spent an hour crying on the phone with a friend, my sister when she heard started to cry as well, in fact, when we mention it she still goes to the verge of tears, my parents are furious beyond belief showing their care for the dog, and my grandmother has emotional breakdowns over the dog as well. I know that by the law and by the written papers that were signed this is a losing case, but, my whole family cared for the dog, it was our dog and in our mistake to make her more comfortable she got taken away from us, this is a losing case by written paper, but there is more to it than just what's on paper, it's about care, it's about another being, it's about a family member. If your family member was taken away wouldn't you fight to even if the odds are against you?

Please, I personally think that this is un-just, that this is unfair, and that I will do anything to get my dog back, if I can't get my dog back at the very least it would please me to see Shirley out of her office because she is not capable of the position I belive. I plan on doing just what I said, I plan on handing out phamplets at her next event telling people about this, I plan on e-mailing her and fighting for my dog back, I plan on doing everything, and even if this must go to court, I will go that far.

In conclusion, I would like to ask any of you out there, that if you find that you fall to my side in this event please e-mail Shirley at shirley@saveadog.org and pressure her about this. As a teenager I don't have power to influence the law, I don't have the power to sue, my parents will handle that, but as a teenager I can pressure her, I can pester her, and damn it, whatever I need to do I will get my dog/sister back or someone is going to realize that she made the biggest mistake of her life to do this too me. Please.. I want to have my entire family back and in a new house, I want to have what anyone would want in this case, I won't let up, and not to sound cliche but I will die trying to get my family whole again, no matter what the odds.

This is Chloe. She is a pitbull/rat terrier mix. She is a very playful dog. She loves to go on walks and give lots of kisses, and needs a good home a.s.a.p.

Information...
I can no longer keep her for several reasons. We were told that we can have pets at the apartment that we are living at, but a few days ago we got a call from the landlord saying that pets were no longer aloud. With jobs she is hard to take care of and we just do not have the time to provide her with the attention that she needs.

A little about Chloe...
- 3 months old
- will grow to be 30-45lbs
- has had 1st puppy shots
- is spayed
- housebroken

We are asking for $300 (o.b.o.) for her, and she comes with the following items:
- 40" Cage (a Brand New one has a $140 value)
- 2 Collars and Leash
- Food/Water Bowl
- 1/2 Bag of Puppy Chow (her absolute favorite)
- Favorite Chew toys (she is teething)
- Puppy Shampoo
- Flea Shampoo
- Flea Treatment
- Scooby Snacks (she loves these too)
- Her Favorite Towel

Please consider adding Chloe to your home. She is a great companion and will be for years to come.

Contact Information...
