This Dog was a Jerk

But he was our jerk. Our cute, loving, man-eating jerk. He didn’t like other people. He didn’t get along with other dogs. He had food aggression. He and his brother constantly fought. He wouldn’t keep on up walks, he kept his own pace, stopping to sniff and pee on everything. He wouldn’t cuddle any more […]

Goodbye, my dopey dog.

Last night our dopey little boy passed away. It happened very quickly. I arrived home around 7:30pm to find him immobile. He tried to stand but couldn’t. I took him to the veterinary hospital where by 12:30 he had already deteriorated in to labored breathing. The diagnosis was a lump on his spleen, probably cancerous, […]

A day at the beach

The boys got their first taste of the beach at Fort Funston today. Literally a taste. They made themselves sick drinking the sea water. Hopefully they learned their lesson. Yeah, probably not.

Playin’ close to home

Sometimes I forget just how close to home I can stay and still have a good time with the camera. Just played around with the pups this afternoon after a bit of frustration at work (nothing serious, but self induced which made it that much worse) and managed to turn out one or two keepers […]

Comfy?

Dogs can find the strangest positions comfortable. Dozer was in this position for at least 30 minutes. This post is part of the thread: Dogs – an ongoing story on this site. View the thread timeline for more context on this post.

Temporary Puppycam

The PuppyCam is back for a while, if not a bit worse for wear. The camera is having some exposure problems that I can’t quite get fixed because the driver isn’t letting me properly change settings and the auto settings wants to overexpose the scene. While its not the best scenario right now it does […]

Watch Those Teeth!

I was having a rough night last night since a hard drive failed on me and it was the one that housed my unwieldly music collection. I was pretty frustrated. I ended up going to bed already half asleep. I wasn’t in bed more than 2 minutes when I heard something funny and the bed […]

It just wouldn’t be christmas without…

A bloody dog fight… You won’t be thanking me for this pic. More details soon. Update: So, 9 stitches and 1 sedation later bear is home and sleeping it off. He not only had the tear in his ear but had a puncture wound in his face. Hopefully he learned something from this as it […]

Training dogs, training humans

One thing that I never, ever, thought about when we got dogs was that not only would they need training but that I’d need training too. I need lots of training. Before getting Bear and Dozer I had pretty much been around dogs until I graduated high-school. I thought that since I had been around […]

Tuna Dogs

Our dogs like tuna. How’s that for a cheap augmentation to their meals. They tend not to like plain dry kibble anymore so we’ve started mixing their morning meals with something to get them to eat. We also buy some wet food to mix in with their morning kibble but nothing seems to go over […]

For now he stays…

Well, I guess we can’t give away a dog with issues. Nobody wants him. Everybody thinks he’s cute but he’s still here. I guess that’s OK, it would be strange here without him. So, now that its apparent that he’s here to stay, we’ve opted to start on with a behaviorist.

The decision has been made

We’ve been agonizing over this for quite a while now and have finally come to a decision. We’ll be seeking a new home for Bear. It is a combination of many things like his misdirected aggression towards his brother, Dozer, and his insecurities which lead towards other aggressive actions such as attacking other dogs and […]

PuppyCam is back!

The PuppyCam is back up. Fortunately, there was no damage to the camera so it is functioning perfectly. They’ve been given the run of the house while we’re away. They let themselves out the doggy door so we can trust them not to poop in the house. At least, we hope we can… The cam […]
