    Default Haven't posted for while so here are a few

    Last week we dog sat my sons two dogs, a spooky Golden retriever called Pickle who is a great dog.
    The other dog is Evie, a Fostered dog that was badly starved when they got her, she is frightened of men and it took a long time and lots of treats for her to feel comfortable with me.

    Combined with our two dogs which they all got on quite well although the small back yard and out house suffered a bit but it was fun looking after them all.
    Taking all 4 of them on the leash was not as bad as it sounds.

    Nevertheless like most grandparents we were glad when they returned home.

    Here's a vid I took yesterday - Will and Skye in the winter sunshine.
    Skye is the bossy boots.

    They will do this ALL day long. When I work in the shed I end up with a pile of balls at my feet.

    Having the flu and resting my synovitic knee by taking turns between the bed and futzing on the computer in the study over the last week built up a couple of towers of used tissues in waste baskets in each room. One by the side of the bed and the other in the study. Most of the tissues have a gruesome multi-coloured looking nasal and/or oral oyster like deposit on them and they got extra colourful after some blood started showing up on Tuesday night.

    Last night when I got up for the umpteenth time to go to the loo to I noticed Older "garbage guts" BC (Willow or Willy Coyote) was not in her crate but that's not unusual as she often sleeps elsewhere in the house.

    This morning when I went to the study for the first time I found the waste basket over turned, tissue tower had been demolished and every tissue had its deposits neatly gnawed out .

    This is the same dog that eats shag and duck poo, and has eaten fresh blow fish and cost us $$$ at the vet to get her stomach pumped. For a while I gave up trying to stop her eating dried blowfish as she seemed to handle them without a problem - once the fish is dry the toxins in them are not so bad. We have now trained her to stop on command if she picks up crap at the park. But she has in turn become sneakier and surreptitiously sneaks away with her morsels so we can't see her. On walks we have to watch her when we go near the river banks or food trailer rubbish bins, etc The other day she found a large fresh looking bone in a grove of trees by the river - what it was doing there made me suspicious and I had to take it from her - the look of despair was priceless when I deposited in the bin. I gave both of them a big bone when we got home.

    The dogs have been good therapy while I have been waylaid but hey have missed out on many walks with my knee in this state and with SWMBOs foot problem - no not the horse - she kicked a door frame last year and it plays up from time to time.

    Pleasure - no pics unfortunately the evidence is all gone - I've even emptied the bin in the bedroom in case Willow wants to try for seconds.

    That is why I'm a cat person. Never seen a cat stupid enough to eat the bodily wastes of another animal.

    Mind you; our dumb-as-dog-poop black cat Sammy may be getting addicted to cane toad toxin. Every now and again he briefly escapes curfew and twice now we've had to shake toads out of his mouth; then flush his mouth out when he starts foaming. We even bought him a cuddly toy frog to maul instead.

    This thread has a "dogs doing gross things" theme so I though I would add to it.

    Border Collies are gorgeous dogs EXCEPT when they decide to roll in poo .
    This poo was another (yes Willow has done this before) human poo!
    She also loves duck poo.

    The park where we walk the dos has toilets but they are locked after hours - this does not stop folks from "going round the back and doing their business" which my dog hones in on and loves to roll in it.
    This "roll' was pretty constrained as usually she spreads it from nose to tail tips.

    BTW photo was taken after scraping most of it off her neck with a stick. The big lump of poo hanging from her collar is poo embedded around her dog tags.
    Luckily I had driven them to park in the HiAce van so she could be tied up in the back to get home.
    Then I ted her to the garden tap and hosed her off before giving her a bath.
    That "look" is also her "I'm in deep doo-doo now"

    oh crap !

    We have Aussie Shepherds, and they too love to do the same, although we're pretty good at keeping them moving so they don't often find them and have time to do the spin. One of the most "memorable" was a rather sloppy wallaby pile, that our black tri-coloured one added to her brown streaks; she walked up to it at a decent pace, not thinking about it, just smear from ear to shoulder as quick as you can.

    Willow's potential worst was a half a maggoty roo. Luckily it was on a beach and we dragged her into the surf to par-wash her off. Still stunk to high heaven by the time we got back to the car but she was not that bad by the time we got back to camp. These dogs are magic at shedding dirt, mud, even grease etc but they do not shed poo. Pond slime also hangs around far longer than I like.

    The culprit,Willow, is well named. She really is a Willow-the-wisp. On our walks. one second she's right next to me and then a couple of seconds later she's vanished. Then she'll be ahead of me and then behind, then right beside me again. Towards the end of the run she dawdles because she doesn't want to leave the park, in contrast at home, when its time to go to the park she hides.
