Cesar Millan fans are dismayed.
Inaccurate reports have namely come about that the man who can talk to dogs are dead.
"Please confirm that the news is false. I have only an idol and that is you ..." writes a restless fan on the star's Facebook where he also denied the horrible rumor.

Tosca would love that ball machine:)

Today my GF had a long walk with our dog Tosca.
Tosca was excited as always and it have been a beautiful day.
ALL our neighbours love to see her and even know her name.
Swedes, Muslims, "Black" people always smile when she appears.

That muslims like her is a bit of surprise to me.
If you touch a dog you have to wash your hands seven times.
I girl from Iraq told me that her father took care of a stray dog in Iraq.
That's very unusual.

Nosh:)

'Brothers' guide blind Waterford dog

For blind people, a seeing-eye dog can be crucial to getting around. So what does a blind dog need? It's obvious: TWO seeing-eye dogs.

Meet Kiaya. The 10-year-old Akita from Waterford lost both of her eyes due to glaucoma but her brothers stepped in.

8-year-old Cass and 2-year-old Keller go everywhere with Kiaya. They stand on each side of the blind dog and guide her through the house and around the yard.

Tosca like that story very much.

btw I saw a TV show where lion pups tried to help their sibling.
His both back legs where broken and had problem to follow the lion Group.
But the pups tried to push him forward when he crawled on the ground.

Who says dogs are not smart!

When asked who chewed up all the toilet paper this French Bulldog has nothing to say. However, her Bull Mastiff "friend" has no problem literally pointing her out.
Check out their hilarious reactions!

Hehehe.
For some reason our dog also likes toilet paper.
When we try picking it up she always pick it up before and place it under an armchair together with her bones.

I understand that peanut butter is a common treat for some folks to give their dogs....found this on our Animal Rescue Site daily click page, and thought I'd pass it along. From the kitties to the doggins people.
This is not your daddy's peanut butter............



ALERT: A Common Food Additive is Deadly For Dogs, and it is Showing Up in Their Favorite Treat!

Dog parents are being warned about giving their dogs peanut butter, a ubiquitous treat most of us feed our dogs without thinking. However, with the rise of artificial sweeteners come a serious danger to dogs!

Xylitol, a sugar alcohol derivative used in lieu of sugar, has been showing up in nut butters. While safe for humans, xylitol can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar for dogs, sending them into hypoglycemic shock, and possibly lead to liver failure.

The most common nut butter containing xylitol is Nut-N-More, a peanut butter with added protein, chia seeds, and other items to help up the nutrition without adding calories. Pet owners should make sure to read the label carefully when purchasing nut butter, or any other sugar-free product that contains xylitol, including sugar-free gum, toothpaste, yogurts, and other products with no or reduced sugar.

Make sure to check all your labels, and keep your dogs safe!
A kitty keeps loneliness away.
More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?

Have made friends in this life.
Most were cats.

According to a National Geographic article: Dogs Are Even More Like Us Than We Thought

For one, canines shun people who are mean to their owners, a new study says.

It's likely no surprise to dog owners, but growing research suggests that man's best friend often acts more human than canine.

Dogs can read facial expressions, communicate jealousy, display empathy, and even watch TV, studies have shown. They've picked up these people-like traits during their evolution from wolves to domesticated pets, which occurred between 11,000 and 16,000 years ago, experts say.

In particular, "paying attention to us, getting along with us, [and] tolerating us" has led to particular characteristics that often mirror ours, says Laurie Santos, director of the Yale Comparative Cognition Laboratory.

I am not well trained in this subject, but it seems like
dogs don't have telepathy because they don't need it.
They get every thing they need from our faces and smell?

Hate to admit it but I'm actually 100% a dog person. I told Siyah yesterday, she was looking at me like 'weren't you going to clean up my litterbox?' :D

Then you've never had the joy of watching dogs looking round behind or under a TV trying to find the rabbits (or other small fodder animals) that have vanished down a burrow ;-)

There is a social aspect, too. I think Winston Churchill made an appropriate observation: ”Dogs look up to us, cats look down on us, but pigs treat us as equals.”

Took Abby in for her semi-annual vet visit today. Her heart disease is stable at Grade 4. Weight is good.

My wife put this on FB earlier....every day Gypsy comes more and more out of her shell (she's a rescue)...

I just got home and let the girls out. All of a sudden I see Gypsy Rose run full speed down the ramp, I see a Blue Jay on the ground, Gypsy chases after it as it hops on the ground, I am screaming "no, no" at Gypsy and chasing Gypsy as she chases the bird. I finally round the corner of the shed and Gypsy has the Blue Jay on it's back. I grab Gypsy's collar and then pull her away enough so I could pick her up. I am walking up the ramp and I hear the Blue Jay screaming and I am yelling "sorry". I get both girls in the house and shut the door! Gypsy looks at me like "Mama, I am a good huntress, so proud!!" After 10 minutes, I go back outside and walk around the whole yard and the Blue Jay is nowhere to be found, but I could hear him squawking in the trees! I yelled out to all the birds "stay out of the back yard or Gypsy may try to get you!!" Hopefully they listen to me !!
