    GERMAN SHEPHERD RESCUE DOG SEES OCEAN FIRST TIME has Amazing Reaction

      We got Zauber before we moved up here, we bought the property in the summer and he was born on Columbus Day the same year.
      He was about 5 months old when we first brought him up for the first time – he sniffed and snuffed all over the parking area at the wild smells but when we got up to the dam and he saw the lake he stopped and stared at it for about five minutes. We walked the almost 700-feet to the overrun area and he went bonkers smelling the scent of the critters that walk it at night. When we turned to walk back he jumped into the lake and swam along the shore all the way back to the parking area and nearly every time after that when he walked the dam with us he’d swim back. Must have been a water dog in a previoius life.

        One of my nieces took her two dogs to a lake area in Alberta somewhere. No signs were posted at the entrance about not letting your dogs roam free or that there were any water dangers. She opened the car doors and they took off and ran right into the lake, playing and having a grand time.

        As she got close to the water, there was a medium size sign that the water contained blue-green algae! Oh, great! She had to collect the dogs immediately and locate the nearest vet to get them taken care of, with thorough baths, etc. There went her week-end vacation!

        Needless to say she was a tad upset that the signs weren’t at the entrance.

            Feds ‘mandated’ bringing hi-speed internert to rural areas and paid (under USDA in 2008) commo companies to do it. They’re being paid again (this time by FCC) to do the same thing…again. Parsing those charters, I bet, they have to bring it here but don’t have to actually hook us up.
            I have a beer bet that when they do hook us up they’ll chsarge us for their having to install the cable – as if we don’tb know.

        A little story about cable and dogs…

        For probably 30 years I’ve had a framed 4×6 sepia-tone photo of my father in the 1920’s when he worked for an electric company in Ventura County, CA. It’s a group photo of all the men on the crew, some standing in front of the open-bed truck full of cable, and others sitting crammed onto the side of the truck bed with their legs over, my Dad being one of the latter.

        Only about 10 years ago when looking at the photo with a magnifying glass did I realize that Dad had a dog laying over his lap…looks like an Irish Setter. No one in the family had ever noticed it before either because in the long shot the dog just blended in with guys.

        I don’t know if the Setter was Dad’s or if it was a working dog of some kind.

      Just got back from the vet where folks there had two lab mixes – three total with Lucky included. Apparently labs aren’t fussy about who they go home with after the party.

      Thank you lovely! Looks like my beloved girl Gracie, who is five years old. I had wondered how much of her was truly black lab. She looks 100%, and I knew her mother was an unregistered pure bred, but there were pups in her litter who looked like Airedales, so as czar said, mom clearly wasn’t fussy and there was more than one father to that litter.

      A few weeks ago I forked over the $75 for a test kit from Wisdom Health. Turns out she is 62.5% labrador retriever, 12.5% golden retriever, 12.5% Siberian husky, and 12.5% “other”. One parent was 3 generations of purebred lab (that would be her mom) and the other was half lab and half golden/Siberian mix who apparently looked completely black lab, just as her mom did. I’m not sure it was worth 75 bucks, but it was fun to find out.

        When I rescued a little black five week old puppy abandoned Memorial Day at a gas station in East Texas, brought it back and started raising the guy, took him lots of meds and worming and etc, but he got bigger and bigger and longer legs and coat began to turn strange and multicoat, and face had an intense look to it….wife thought he was maybe a wolf….so I did the DNA test and discovered he was Australian Cattle Dog with a little Collie mixed in….turned out to be brilliant, fun and loving, and a perfect companion for our smaller lady dachsy rescue….they are inseparable….and he is actually the beta to her, but his herding instincts are strong….he could very well learn cattle management, and I am training him the verbal and hand commands…..he thinks fetching sticks is his JOB and so he will do it for hours if given the chance…

        without the DNA, I would have been raising him ALL WRONG as I never saw an Aussie Cattledog, and they absolutely must be trained to be acceptable, but they love to learn and merely want a job to do and consistency in treatment.

        the DNA test was a Godsend to me….and altho he might be a dingo influenced dog, he sure is not a wolf.

        Nothing as content as a lab with a lake 🙂 .

        My Iggy is a pure bred Italian Greyhound.

        My other dog Grinner/Dean is supposed to be a Shiba Inu, Beagle mix. I think it would be fun to know what she actually is other than a rascal!

    Just got back from the vets with Lucky – they wanted to measure the levels of the seizure meds in his blood – and one the way back we stopped at BK. I ordered a Whopper for me and a 10-piece chicken nugget ‘for my dog’. Only word from the clerk was ‘and would your dog like any sauce?’…ahhhh, living in a rural area.

    I know that vets make a good part of their income from selling you drugs for your dogs/cars/fill-in-the-blanks BUT it can get expensive. Just for the heck of it I plugged the drug ‘keppra’ into GoodRx to see what it would run me for Lucky. He’s on phenobarbital and potassium bromide but they will shorten his life by attacking his organs.
    It was suggested I try Keppra and I’ve been using GoodRx (found some items cheaper to buy than my co-pay was). I plugged in Keppra and found it had a generic that I could get (180 tabs) for less than $92 as opposed to an over the counter price of from $750 to over $800 locally.
    SDo from now on when one of my dogs needs meds that are also people meds I’m going shopping – I even got free shipping on his ‘scrip. Check it out, no reason to over pay.
