Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Saw this in the news this morning.

"In Illinois , pets will be treated more like kids than property in divorce cases. Pets could be subject to partial or joint custody after their owners divorce. The law only applies to "companion animals" -- not service animals."

Is this progress? I think so.....

I'd probably look at this as a a good test for GF's parents.

First snow here on the east coast US too.
Ari didn't mind.. I think snow changes somehow the way scents work, so made sniffing things more interesting on our walk.

What is your walking schedule like with Bax, and what do you do on walks?

Bar Harbor. We took I-95 to get up to Bangor, and then 1A East, so practically passed by you, Diane! :D

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Boy: they promised to see a moose! 😩 Father: perhaps next time we'll see one... Boy: they promissed to see a moose!!! 😩😫😢 Mother (pointing at Ari): look, here is a moose! :lol: we are back from a week or so in Maine. Beautiful. Didn't see a moose either (probably a good thing that we didn't), but a ...

Re: Almost 7 month old Pup

No more midday walks in country parks. Crack of dawn strolls in the woods it is! Maybe I'll run into other intact owners who have the same issue :lol: Yep, we've been there! On the bright side - you will probably see interesting things. We saw owls flying, for example... On the other side - if you ...

Re: Almost 7 month old Pup

Staring, growling at non-threatening others.. i'd say he is discovering the joy of being a macho bully :( Not a good habit to acquire. Our boy became one of those during his adolescence coupled with dog parks, it took forever to unlearn, but to this day this nasty bully is always right under the sur...

The dogs pulled me off of my feet yesterday.....
My dr once asked me how much I exercise, and what kind.
I said - well, mostly walking my dog.
He said - walking a dog is not an exercise!

Depends on the dog(s), doesn't it? :D :D

Little girl: I want to pet this dog! I want to pet this dog!!! Mother: Sure, let's pet this dog. Little girl starts pulling mother towards Ari, very excited and animated.

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Probably an old joke, but the visual is so deliciously good... Why do dog people love their dogs so much? Imagine that by some accident you locked your wife and your dog in the boot of your car... and 10 min later remembered that they are locked in there, ran to the car, and opened the boot to let t...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

I'm used to getting comments like 'You could put a saddle in it and ride it' when out walking J (who is not an it :evil: ) but I had a bizarre one this morning from a passing cyclist: 'With those legs you must have problems getting trousers to fit.' Was the implication that J, who doesn't wear trou...
