What great and amazing dogs! emoticon

My guys have all done competitive Obedience and Rally (along with a host of other things too) so I know how hard it can be to get those sit / down stays to " hold " for any length of time. Kudos to those who try to train their dogs!

Our Phoenix was bought for show and breeding, as well as to get me back out into the show ring, but he had other things in mind for his life..... While he ended up not being a showable or breedable fellow, what he did do was bond 100% with my youngest offspring Meaganne instead of me.

Meaganne had a spinal injury when she was just 13 years old, and has lived with chronic pain ever since. Phoenix is her unofficial service dog and will pick up anything she needs, or will stretch out on " his " double bed behind her putting pressure and body warmth on whatever spot seems to be giving her grief at that precise moment.

Phoenix also has a number of health issues of his own including Idiopathic Epilepsy. While he hasn't had seizures frequently enough to require medication, every single seizure he has had so far has been a major Grand Mal one. Our younger lad Brinx alerts us every time Phoenix starts to seize, by barking frantically until we get there, while our Arwen will lie down right against Phoenix as if to reassure him that someone is with him.

Great Forum idea. I have had luck with the stay thing.. but 2 minutes! Good dog indeed!

We got our Flacco last July. He had had 4 or 5 owners before us. Daughter one day said BANG and Flacco fell onto his back. Who knew? lol It still works.

Good for Sadie and Sprocket

Glad Alice is thru surgery and getting around.

Great for Sprocket and Sadie. Need to work with Cassie more so she will have those kind of brags.

Hope Alice feels better soon.

Yeaaa Alice - hope she's feeling better real soon.

I just got my Sparks Activity Tracker so Sadie is learning that on certain walks we don't stop and sniff every five feet we need to keep moving to earn fitness minutes. She is doing pretty good with it for the most part. I usually give her the first few minutes in case she needs to do her bathroom business. But then we are off for 20 to 30 minutes. emoticon

Yeaaa Sprocket


Alice just had surgery for a tumor. She has been a trooper throughout the ordeal. When she was a year old she would help us in the garden by helping us carry the hose, or help us dig up the weeds.

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

I thought we needed a forum for bragging about how cool, smart, pretty, or funny our pets are!

I'll go first: Today, Sprocket did a down-stay for 2 minutes while I walked around and kicked his favorite ball back and forth. He only moved til he heard me getting me a treat.
When I repeated the exercise he only moved til I used the release word. : )
