Homeless dogs in the US

September 29, 2008 by sandor.fagyal

Every year over 4 million dogs are destroyed in the United States. It's a sad thing. I'm not saying that dogs should not be put to sleep (if they are seen to be a threat, then unfortunately that might have to be done). All I'm saying that it's an indication that things need improving.

One solution allows you to directly help. If you spay or sterilize your dog, then there you might prevent more dogs from being slaughtered. We call ourselves a humane society, and so let's behave like one.

Be a responsible dog owner! Don't put your dog on the street as I am sure you wouldn't do it with your children either!

Correcting your dog

September 29, 2008 by sandor.fagyal

A lot of people I have seen have an inability to properly make their dogs understand when something is bad. If a dog has done something wrong and you've found out about it after a while, there is absolutely no good in disciplining them at that time since their brain is such that they don't understand what they did wrong.

For example, if you come home and find that your dog has chewed up all the papers in the house, and you yell at him, he will not understand why you are angry. Only that you are angry.

Bad Dog


In order to effectively make your dog change their behavior, you need to catch them in the act. Either that, or just as they are about to make their move so that it's crystal clear what is happening.

Oh, the hassles of raising a puppy!

September 26, 2008 by sandor.fagyal

Let new dog owners beware! Raising a puppy is not for the lighthearted. Even though they're ridiculously cute, they will give you hell by chewing, pooping, getting into trouble, and their little teeth and claws are sharp!

Oh you'll be rewarded all right. Have no fear about that! But your puppy will require your care and attention, and it's a responsibility not taken lightly as outlined in this poem:

 

 

A Poem for the New Puppy Owner

Don't smell crotches, don't eat plants.

Don't steal food or underpants.

Don't eat my socks, don't grab my hair...

DON'T RIP THE STUFFING FROM THAT CHAIR!

Don't eat those peas, don't touch that bush!

Don't chew my shoes, what IS that mush?!?

Eat your cookie, Drink your drink,

Outta the toilet! Outta the sink!

AWAY FROM THE CAT BOX, IT'S FOR THE CAT!

(and must you kiss me after that?!?)

Yes, raising a puppy, Is not for the lazy.

Though puppies are funny, They're also quite crazy.

But don't despair Though its toil and strife,

After three years you'll get back your life!

So let's go for "walkies", You can "do your thing"

(and perhaps I'll get back MY GOOD DIAMOND RING!)

Dog Lamps #24: Wacky or Tacky?

September 26, 2008 by sandor.fagyal

Every week Euro Puppy showcases a dog lamp. Is it tacky or wacky? We will leave it up to you to decide. While having our own beliefs, we would love your comments...Enjoy....

Rare Antique Dog Lamp.

We have a special treat for you guys this week! A rare antique Scottish dog lamp with two Scottish terriers. Made of cast Iron, and with wrinkled paint, they are at least 60-70 years old have been refitted with a 7ft cord.

The attitude of the dogs is that of rapt wonder or curiosity as can be gleaned by the cocked ears. An unusual showpiece, and one that is likely to draw several curious comments.

So? Wacky or tacky? What do you think dear Dog lover?

Dog Art: Britas - The Lithuanian Show dog

September 26, 2008 by sandor.fagyal

This Scottish Terrier from Northeastern Europe has quite a reputation. Armed with several prizes and honorary titles, he could be said to be one of the foremost dogs in the republic!

By now you are familiar with the art work of Elena Adams whom we have featured for well over a month now. The owner of Britas - Joana had this box made through Elena who used a variety of techniques to complete it.

The details is marvelous and very realistic. A work of art that is a fitting tribute to Britas the Scottish Terrier from Lithuania.
