How do I cure seperation anxiety? We rescued a 4-5yr old lab. She goes to work with me every day and she's perfect. When I get home from work I leave her for 2-3hrs when I go to the gym. She always get's into something while I'm gone. Yesterday, she knocked over the xmas tree, ate all the presents and a whole bag of hershey kisses.

If you don't have a crate for her, get one. If she is not already trained to a crate (or even if she is), feed her in the crate. Then she will probably think it is a good place to be. When you go away, leave her in the crate. Give her a bone or something to keep her occupied.

Why did she have to be rescued? Perhaps her separation anxiety was a problem for her previous owner.

I'd also try to leave her as tired as possible before leaving her alone. My bull terrier rescue has had one incident of getting into things when left alone; on a day when I didn't give him much of a walk before heading out. Now I take him to the beach and have him chase and murder the biggest driftwood stick we can find that morning. After we get home he falls asleep and hardly lifts his head when I walk out the door.

I think somebody dumped her off because she has allergies. Her paws and ears were pretty torn up when we got her. My friend is an animal dermatologist, so that helps. We put her on a venison/potato diet and she is 90% better. I left her for a little while today and put a baby gate up and blocked her in the kitchen. Dropped her bed in there with a deer antler and she was good. I like her to have free roam of the house, but not if she's going to ruin christmas. lol.

"I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY by Janine Allen

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldnít be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didnít want her to know that I hadnít been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didnít want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldnít feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someoneís life.

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

I would promise to keep her safe.
I would promise to always be by her side.
I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who havenít walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.

I knew you and the dog would love that Badger II. I had the top off on Saturday for a few hours as well (before it went down into the 30s again)...great times!

Dog is wooped

After a weekend at Hidden Falls my pup is plum tuckered out. Don't worry he doesn't ride back there when the windows are off, he sits shotgun when the wife isn't riding, harnessed so he can't jump out (though he won't).

You may want to consider a set of raingler nets to keep him safe in the back...

There's no way I could pass up the chance to show off the 'daaaags'. The female, Vera, is always a bit prissy, but loved riding in the P38 (when had it and it actually moved). The male, Hadwin, just can't get enough of what he considers his mobile dog house also known as Janey. As for the two of them together, I'm glad I have a 110 now.

Here are ours... The little fluffy one, named Hanks Wife (goes by Peggy) was a clearance puppy picked up by my fiance. Then there's my Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, named Folsom. They both like riding in the truck... even when they got bounced all over the place at The Cove.

Item of note, keep those yummy chocolates away from the pooches.... childrens' Christmas toys... optional.

I second the crate idea. My bulldog is a chewing machine. Now I put him in a crate/kennel when I leave and he does great. He knows his crate is his 'security blanket' and now goes there to nap/hang out when our fluffy one has wont quit chewing on him.

Here are a couple of my favorites of our boy in the outdoors. Unfortunately we have nothing good of him in the 110, 90 or D2

Question for the ST owners. Sounds stupid, but do I need to be concerned at all for the dog's hearing if on longer rides in the ST? I've adopted a rescue (his current name is Mr. Peeps, but I think it will be Cooper as of tomorrow at my gf's request) and he's part lab and boxer mix. This mix means he's got ears that go up and fold down, leaving the ear canal exposed. Do you guys put a bandana around their ears or anything? Haha I know it seems stupid, but the little dude has had a rough go at it as it is, and I don't want him to be in pain with loud buffetting against his ears or anything.

He's the black dude in this picture.

Cute dog but you are still a douche. I wouldn't worry about his hearing but I have been told to be careful of the eyes when they stick their heads out. Mine always comes back in when I hit 50.
