Wimpy Dog
[Return to Topics]

Who says wimmins is wimpy? Chilli Dog, the Shephard in front got him a real good gash on his snout. The best I could do was gobs of Bag Balm in the general area! Sasha Bean aquired the same, and she let me put a dab where it is needed! By the way, Bean does the dirty work with the groundhogs and "coons and lets Chilli do the carrying!

Way to go Chilli Dog! Let the gurl do the dirty work and you bring home the prize. LOL I hope they both come through with no lasting injuries.

We have a male shephard that looks very much like that one. Wolfee (Wolfgang something, something if we'd registered him) always has his head and ears up and alert like that. They're very loyal animals.

A fine looking pair there and I know you're proud of them.

Tell Ya What. Chilli is taller than I am when he is standing on his hind legs! Haven't been able to get him to sand on his front legs....yet. Working on it! He parks his paws on my shoulders, and he has to scrunch down to look me in the eye, and I am 6' tall! Now Bean is the showgirl, Sings and dances umm when it suits her! Someone posted that dogs can only make 10 different sounds. Well they haven't met Bean, yet!!

don't know how mant sounds, but my buddy's dog knew how to respond to 60 word commands.he'd go down behind the dryer for a frizbee hidden there for example.

Wolfee is actually our daughter's dog. When she moved into an apartment in the city to be closer to work he stayed with us. She used to yell at him trying to make him mind her. I always told her that if she had to yell she wasn't in control.

I've taught him some hand signals, reinforced with voice commands, to do some simple things like come, sit, down, home, etc. I can do more with him with hand signals than she can by yelling at him.

Deadcarp this is a chance to get to know you. You went into the hospital about the same time as I found this site. Actually I think you sorta' disappeared and folks were wondering about you until they found you in the hospital. I kept thinking, "Just who is this DC character anyway?"

So many people were worried about you that I decided you must be some kind of OK guy that I'd like to get to know.

I'm in N. central Texas about 40 or so miles NW of Fort Worth in a rural community. I've only got 2.75 acres with, by actual count, 387 Black Jack Oak trees. Ya need any trees I'd be glad to send you some. We only have the dawg and one very black cat whose name is Lilly. Lilly is MY cat and is totally devoted to me. No other animals on the place as it's not fenced. Don't really have the time to care for other animals anyway.

A picture of Lilly in her favorite spot.

I hope your physical therapy is going good and that you'll be going home soon. Those "sausages" will respond again with time I'm sure. Just keep yer head up as well as your attitude and you'll do just great. I've noticed your healthy attitude in your posts and admire your sense of humor in trying times.

glad to see you george :) couldn't sleep so got up at 4. suzn & i are between a river & lake in central mn, here's some of my chatter. i've been fogey & old warrior online oo.

I'm only 5'6" so Wolfee would easily be able to see over my head if he stood up and put his front paws on my shoulders. I've never tried to teach him to do that though as his toenails need trimming and he can rip my arms up just trying to "shake." He loves to shake hands and is very agressive at it.

In warm weather I'm usually in shorts and house shoes and that cussed dawg stomps on my feet when I let him in the house. That HURTS! Really need to deal with those townails. LOL
