Small dogs: I really really hate the lack of dignity in the small dog that insists on bullying and shouting down all other dogs. Some people think this ridiculosity is "cute," apparently? I think it's repugnant, and my first reaction is to want to hurt them until they get a better idea of their place in the world.

I also think "ugly" means "ugly," and not, "Gather round and pity this creature before we put it to death for its own good."

Yeah, I know. I don't think I'd ever really noticed this before recently but it's pretty horrible when they do this. I hate Yorkies.

Also I know you hate ugly dogs but the thing is that I don't think pugs, frenchies or bulldogs are ugly at all - I think they're adorable. You want ugly?

This is ugly:

re: pitbulls — There's this awesome pitbull I would visit every day in the summer who lives down the block who would always have his head stuck through the bars of the metal fence in front of the building. Once I was walking to the bus stop and I saw his owner walking him and the doggie recognized me instantly and jumped onto me, mortifying his owner.

I think it's more that people dislike things that show their fear so blatantly. Like a giant Great Dane is probably the most loving thing ever but probably not afraid of anyone.

Stayed with a friend in Spain who had a Yorkshire terrier, a German Shepherd and some kind of bloodhound, and the Yorkshire terrier was the undisputed leader. It was weird but possibly not uncommon.

Since moving in with my gf and her Dane I am continually amazed what a giant lovey doofus he is, but some people are just fucking terrified of the dude. I don't know if it's possible to be licked to death but that's probably the extent of the damage he could willingly do. He does tend to knock things over occasionally.

yeah Trishyb, I still have a whole speech prepared to the guy who yelled at me across the local green a few years ago about letting my dog poo there. he started yelling at me as i was picking up the business, saying, "kids play there, curb your dog means take it to the curb, etc" and i just stared at him dumbly because what he was saying was so demonstrably hostile and stupid that i had no idea how to respond. (kids don't play there, the playground is on the other side of the green, that isn't what curbing your dog means, please shut up)

Holy shit, trishyb

I found that kind of dog aggro was almost always preemptive, often obnoxious and generally unnecessary. People's reactions are several steps ahead sometimes, like they're responding to a worst possible scenario which has not yet occurred and is not going to occur when it comes to dogs.

It def made my blood boil sometimes, I remember a lot of encounters like the one Table described and a few truly astonishing horror stories.

There has got to be a thread on here for posting the prepared orations against assholes we've carried around for years, and if not there should be.

Adoration of the Mogwai (Deflatormouse), Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:32 (one month ago) link

My dog is frequently an instigator, but it's from anxiety rather than aggression. He gets very anxious if it seems like another dog is coming straight at him, it doesn't really matter how small or harmless the other dog is. When he gets anxious he gets very loud and sounds frankly a bit scary, snarling and barking to let the other dog know that he's capable of anything. He reacts the same way to other things that make him anxious, such as loud trucks passing by.

o. nate, Thursday, 11 March 2021 02:36 (one month ago) link

Young one dive-bombed our older pup today *while she was taking a poo*. I've never been so angry with a dog.

Has anyone used CBD stuff on their pups? I don't want to get him on dog xanax, mostly because it's very expensive and he is quite a normal puppy, but Christ, we just need him to calm the fuck down.

a solid gold Cadillac and a blowjob machine (the table is the table), Thursday, 11 March 2021 15:41 (one month ago) link

mine was nuts when he was a pup and I had to put him on a muzzle for six months because he would try and eat literally anything outside, including dogshit and spent condoms. And inside I had to constantly watch after he nearly died from a sock blocking his small intestine. It can be a very stressful period but I think more often than not there is light at the end of the tunnel.

trishyb, Thursday, 11 March 2021 16:30 (one month ago) link

I guess we just got lucky with our first one, who had a few bad behaviors but has always been pretty mellow.

Part of the issue is that this guy came from a sort of unknown (assumedly abusive or traumatic) situation, and is developing late, so he's 10 months old but acts like a 4 or 5 month old puppy. Wouldn't be a problem except he's getting honking big!

scampopo (suzy), Thursday, 11 March 2021 17:34 (one month ago) link

yeah I've done the same thousands of times, the problem I have is that it turned into a game with him and he's got a very competitive game-playing nature. One day I bumped into two climbers who were practicing on old train bridge. They had a wooden hand brush which I assumed was for brushing moss off the sandstone where they are climbing. Anyway the little bastard knicks it and it took 20 mins to get it back off him and he was gleefully running rings around us all!

the other day this dog walker with a little Maltese type looking dog falsely accused my dog of biting her dog for the second time. I said I can't take you seriously when you lie like this, my dog get's bullied by French Bulldogs and doesn't bite other dogs, particularly smaller ones and never has. He just playfully ran around the dog when it barked at him, even with my shit eyesight I had 20/20 vision on the whole *incident*. I replied just go to the park if you are too uptight about your dog interacting with other dogs and stop trying to spoil this place for everyone else you miserable arsehole. And she replied menacingly "just you you wait till you pass my house again". And then pulls out her phone and threateningly looks at me me like she is ringing the police. I just thought fuck it I'll carry on with my walk and ignore this deranged arsehole. I walked another quarter of a mile and saw this angry dot on the landscape shouting death threats at me. And then it dawned on me she had called her thick as pigshit lump of gammon boyfriend to come out and beat me up! I have a good idea who he is and am not remotely scared of him, but because a lot of the time I'm with my autistic son, she has effectively put me in a situation where I can't bring him there anymore with the dog because you do have to do a risk assessment as a carer, occasionally. Anyway the whole unsavoury incident reminded me why I mostly prefer walking with the dog in deepest possible cuts of nature locations and avoiding bumping into as few a humans as possible.

If you are one of those people with a new puppy, please please please get them acclimatized to having their claws clipped and their hair brushed and people putting their hands into their mouths to take stuff out and all that other stuff. By the time we get dogs in our house, they've usually been neglected to the point that they won't let you do any of those things. I had to take Kittser to the vet today to have his claws clipped because he will bite me if I try to do it at home. It took two nurses to do it, and he was so stressed out by the whole experience that he got sick in the car. He's a poor little sausage.

trishyb, Wednesday, 7 April 2021 14:24 (one week ago) link

when Douglas had dry pads that were cracking I tried to apply some sudocrem and he growled and tried to take my hand off and that was when he was quite young. He's used to me taking things out of his mouth without getting so radged although at least thankfully not so much these days. But when I've had to change bandages on his paws he has always had to be muzzled, he feels totally attacked if you go near his paws. My last dog wasn't like this and feel like it might be quite a complex emotional trauma buried deep within his psyche or something!

calzino, Wednesday, 7 April 2021 23:35 (one week ago) link

Yeah, it doesn't help if their paws are already sore when you start handling them, I guess. Poor Douglas.

trishyb, Thursday, 8 April 2021 09:26 (one week ago) link

As a new dog obsessive parent I've been trying to get him used to everything. Brushing is going ok (it's managing his determination to see brush as chew toy rather than any aggro), we're ok around the mouth so far and I've done a bit of paw/claw handling but I'm a way away from a proper clip.

No vaccinations yet, so he hasn't seen much of the outside world - turns into a wriggler and moaner if I try to walk him out in my arms or a sling & clearly wants to be down and sniffing about. We've got a bit of a garden for him to play around in, but the sooner I can get him seeing the world, the better.

But he's a pretty confident & trusting little beast - just hope that I don't screw it up over the coming months.

Widget at nearly six months is happy to be left for a couple of hours if bribed with some kind of bone, a scatter of treats, or (his favourite which he knows by name) BLUEBERRIES. I can do one or two claws at a time - he doesn’t mind his feet being handled at all but if the clipper comes out, he won’t cooperate.

I don't think I've ever met a dog that doesn't love blueberries.

Our young one is an annoying little shit and we're all still getting used to each other. He just doesn't have any goddamn manners, so it will take a bit...luckily he's very smart and still young, so very trainable.

"Still working on the whole come-when-called thing though"

my dog is 2 and a three quarter years old and am still working on that project, but at least now when I call him he'll stop and wait for me and wait for me to put him back on the leash which is some progress I suppose.

"just hope that I don't screw it up over the coming months."

it's just like with human kids, you should never be too hard on yourself about your failures - because no matter how hard you try they will embarrass the fuck out of you one day and that is where the unconditional love is needed most!

I'm thinking bout castration at the moment and am very conflicted, been through all this before but this time it seems a much tougher decision. I mean wtf gives you the right to surgically mutilate your best friend? I just don't know anything anymore tbh.

calzino, Friday, 9 April 2021 02:38 (one week ago) link

Very consistently-voiced "come" commands, coupled with consitently-delivered treats on arrival, was all it took to get out dog to come when called. Then again, she'd probably run through a brick wall for food.

Re: castration/neutering, if you’re not planning to breed from a dog, the stats on canine testicular cancer in lads and pyometra in female dogs suggest it’s a good idea to have a dog fixed. With larger dogs and sighthounds, it’s supposed to be advisable to wait until they’re two to let growth hormones do their job.

scampopo (suzy), Friday, 9 April 2021 05:47 (one week ago) link

yes I've emcountered a dog before where the owner told me he was castrated too early and the poor lad had a very unfortunate shrill whistle of a bark. I probably would have got him "done" by now and would have done if it wasn't for the lockdown. Thanks for that bit of perspective, Suzy - it probably does probably make a lot of sense to get it done for various reasons.

calzino, Friday, 9 April 2021 06:52 (one week ago) link

Also with sighthounds, early neutering basically hands them arthritis due to aforementioned growth plates not closing properly. My beloved Wilf was fixed around six/seven months and at 10.5 has started arthritis meds - early for a whippet. Poor Wilf is also experiencing early dementia and macular degeneration and I well up whenever I think about it.

Widget is pedigreed (granny, aunties and mum owned by breeder all show locally and at Crufts) and I’m thinking of letting him sire a litter before having him fixed because the stud fee can be one of the pups, who would go to Wilf’s family as a gift if they lose him before Widget turns three.

I reckon I could pimp Douglas out even though he's bit of a rough diamond. When I bumped into a kennel club type he told me in quite eugenic terms what a magnificent specimen he is and the matriarch from a local farm hinted that she would be quite happy if *something happened* between him and her golden retriever. But alas I think his nuts are going to go before he gets that chance ;;

I'm very negative about dog breeding and puppies, but even I wouldn't begrudge someone a Douglas pup.

There's a setter called Cooper who lives near us who normally hangs out in front of his house near the beach and comes down to play with his dog pals as they go by. He is one of Kittser's best pals for running about with, and Kitt has even got to the stage of going all the way up to Cooper's yard to see if he's around for a run. But today we met Cooper out on his actual walk with his human man, on a lead. Poor Kitt just couldn't understand it. He ran up to Cooper and shouted and shouted at him from every possible angle to get him to run, but no joy. He was so dejected when I clipped him onto his own lead and dragged him away.

I totally wish I could adopt Prancer, but I think he would hate me:
