    let's talk turds

    Wow rotten, that was so well worded, seems like you thought that out well. Must happen pretty often for you to type so well about it. :lol: I'm laughing my butt off at you by the way. Toby will not go if I am watching, so even though I'm sure he has this happen on occassion I've not seen it since he was little. I also had my hair cut very short on thursday so it wouldn't work as a hanger anymore. When he was tiny though and my hair was half way down my back I would laugh my butt off as he drug the poo dangling from his rear around the room. I mopped alot!!!

    There's something wrong with Jackie!

    Hopefully it's nothing. Maybe she just slept wrong. Poor girl.

    Does your dog like to be cuddled

    Toby is not a cuddler. He will take a nice belly rub or a quick pat on the head, but no hugging. McKenzie was my love bug. When I was down, she would lay her head on my shoulder and let me wrap my arms around her neck and cry. Which I did often because I had a miscarriage a few months before we got her. Then when she had her puppies she paid me back. She laid in my lap and whined. I held her and hugged and kissed her on the head. She was my love bug, but not that way with anyone else.

    When is enough to much?

    Well, I didn't call the police, because my husband and my dad are friends with the old ladies son. I was hoping she would do something about her dog and I wouldn't have to be the "bad" neighbor. She didn't leave him out lastnight, so I don't know if she forgot the night before or realized his barking drove us crazy. I guess the car alarm might have made her get it. Who knows?

    Well he is not housetrained. I couldn't sleep for he would eat my house and potty everywhere. When she takes him in he stays in a crate. Never allowed loose in the house. So that would be a disaster. I wish she would just rehome him, but "she is so attached to him." Bull Crap, if she was she would care more than to leave him outside barking all night. GRRRRR, I'm frustrated.

    Nope won't listen. Her dog is out of control and will not listen to a word she says. She just uses the excuse that he won't listen to her. I've tried talking to her about letting him run loose, him chasing cars, and him stealing from the clothes line of the house behind me. She says she can't do anything with him. :x

    Help! new puppy

    [quote name='K']Why would your neighbours have a 3 week old puppy?....take it to the nearest vet and leave it there for specialist care and attention..they can get the bill when they get back![/quote] Really. Why do they have a 3 week old puppy? Unless it's mother was killed or refused to care for it, but still to go on vacation and leave a 3 week old. I hope that was a mistype. Anyways, no doesn't seem normal at all. Puppy needs a vet or it may be the end. Good Luck.

    I KNEW it would happen....

    Poor doggy. It must be bad to belong to idiots. Hopefully they don't leave the poor fluffball outside by himself anymore. It's not the coyotes fault that we invade there territory.

    What dog treat do you give your dog?

    Toby loves anything with a meat flavor to it. He also likes my homemade peanutbutter and appelsauce biscuits.
  12. Toby always poops in one spot by the road next to the mailbox. I pick up poop probably twice a week. More often if it hasn't been raining. I use just a regular old shovel and a plastic grocery bag. Toby usually steals my grocery bag and runs, which leaves the poop scattered back on the ground and I have to chase him to get my bag back and then I pick up poop again. I get a work out.
  13. :o DO...hahaha, yoy kill me. I want a fence....to bad my house isn't mine. Stupid renting.

    Is your dog protective of you?

    Toby is so scared of things he growls and puts on a show all the time. He's not really being protective of anyone but himself. Although he knows my daughter is scared of the neighbors dogs and he will bark and growl to run them off if she is in the yard. I think when he is older he will be fairly protective. I do think even now Toby would bite someone if he thought Brandi was being threatened by them. He is very attached to Brandi. I don't think a dog has to be trained to be protective. I think they will just be that way with there home and the people they love. They can sense a bad situation. Then again it all depends on the dog. Some dogs as I've seen on TV will just love anyone to death. This one show was about a guy breaking into peoples house and there dogs, one was a pit bull, just followed him around and licked him while he turned the house upside down. Now it may have been different had the owners been in the house and the dog felt they were in danger. I don't really know. I just think most dogs would protect those they love in an attack of somekind.
