It's been cloudy, snowy, icy, rainy, windy, and everything else but lots of sun, so I have not been able to keep up with my edits from Oregon. SO in the meantime, enjoy this photo collage of Ink meeting a random slab dog that we ran into while walking around the slabs. No owner in sight. January 2015.

Idea for a new breed of dog – the “NewLab”

There is now a trend afoot of breeding “designer dogs”. The basic idea is to cross two established, well-characterized breeds and attempt to obtain the best traits of each in the result, as well as eliminate the excessive genetic inbreeding that has overshadowed many of our current purebreds.

There are two forks to the “designer dog” trend. One focuses only upon the First (F1) generation – the 50/50 cross, and neglects to consider any subsequent progeny. The second branch of the trend is to actually develop a new breed of dog, with back-crossing to the original breeds (and even incorporating sometimes a third).

I’m recommending the second tack. I would very much like to see a dog which might be termed the “LabradorNewfie” Or maybe better, the “NewLab”. Here are the reasons:

1st (and maybe primary): It is good to have a wider admixture of gene... show more

Our plan has been to roam around northern #Portugal for a couple of weeks of vacation this year. It has been the plan pretty much since we got from southern Portugal a year and a half ago. And yet ... these faces. How could I ever?

I’m supposed to be planning a big overseas trip, and I keep getting hung up on how much I will miss the dogs.

Today it was sunny so as every Sunday we went for a longer walk to the forest with a whole pack. I haven't mentioned it yet, but Maciek has a strong hunting instinct, so while we walk in the forest he sometimes run away and chasing the deer. Today he was a good boy for almost half a way, but on the way back it wasn't that good anymore... Now they are both falling asleep tired and we will be able to watch the film in peace and quiet.

Suki wishes the Federation and Fediverse a happy Saturday. May all of your treats be filled with peanut butter and your naps bathed in sunshine.

Saturdays are for sleeping in followed by dog massages and humongous cups of tea (for the humans). Suki is ready for step #2.

3 out of 3 dogs agree that my decision to go to work rather than stay home and cuddle demonstrates questionable judgment.

There is no better way to wake up than to an adoring face of a creature that gets such satisfaction from simply being petted by you.

Not to worry: We are not being vortexed here in Denver. But Miss Roo (like a lot of Italian Greyhounds) has trouble packing her own insulation. This happens to be the moment just after I pulled back the covers and just before I dressed her in her purple flannel PJs for the day.

♲ alysonsee (alysonsee@canine.cloud):
Rare naked shot of Miss Roo. All winter long, she models her array of Iggie fashion by day but she still sleeps au naturel (buried under lots of covers). This is her “WHY did you wake me” face.

My wife is on Day 4 of the flu. She is miserable, and I have been doing everything I can to keep her from getting too hot, cold, dehydrated, congested, and existentially depressed. Because it's bad enough that she feels sour on the inside, I cleaned the house, did the laundry, and put fresh linens on everything. Plus, I got her through a bath, even though she didn't wanna. (She thanked me for it afterwards.) The dogs have been very empathetic and undemanding. And, now that she is solidly asleep and the house is quiet, it occurs to me that the reason that I'm sharing pieces of my precious St. Viateur bagel, toasted and slathered with butter, with my dogs is because I want someone to pay attention to me. (It only worked until the rest of the bagel was gone.)

Had never thought of this. Now I'm thinking about it.

My current dog is about 11 yrs old. Best dog I've ever owned. 85 lbs of teeth and fur. Among other things, I've trained him better than any other dog I've owned- he won't eat food -even if it's in reach, unless it's his food. He also knows how to crawl. I trained him to walk on his tiptoes- silently- when I want him to sneak up on a rat or other rodent. He will back up on command, and of course, sit and stay.

Wish I could get him to howl on command. Only does it when ambulance or fire engines drive by.

What are some things you taught or want to teach your dog?

Here, in the Greater WD, we have a festival that's just for dogs. Kelpie dogs. They are very nice.
