  1. When you get a chance could you post the title? Always enjoy a good book!! Thanks!
  2. Not the one by Coppinger? Can't remember the title exactly - read that one years ago. Was fascinated by it. Does it have the foxes in it that were bred for docile behavior that ended up spotted and with floppy ears?
  3. I read this article on the web about dogs and 'telepathy' - basically they are just really good at reading our signals but with the indian dogs, I do swear that they are telepathic! Definitely empathic! http://news.discovery.com/animals/dogs-are...thy-110609.html http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/art...e-thinking.html
  4. I imagine that was scary for you!And for Danza too. Sorry to hear how frightened she was - know you were frightened for her. Amazing tho how adept these guys are about finding a way to 'escape'! They are so darned smart! And don't worry about 'failing' her - it's always a learning experience with these dogs, now you both know that there's more to learn LOL So glad tho that she came freely to your hubbie - that means you guys are definitely pack leaders in her mind - safety and love are where you are!
  5. Oops meant to add that today is Kim's birthday too - just in case anyone wants to wish him a happy birthday!
  6. If your dog is nervous about the fireworks/noise try Bach's Rescue Remedy. It helps almost any situation where you're dealing with fear or anxiety. Also there is a really cool 'jacket' for nervous dogs called the Thunder shirt ( http://www.thundershirt.com/) that I'm told works well. Based kind of on the theory that Dr. Temple Grandin used for herself and other autistic people (if you haven't seen the movie about her life you really should - fascinating!) So many animals suffer on the 4th (and New Years etc) end up traumatized or even escaping confinement and running away/getting lost.....
  7. They are super comfortable - my daughter has one - it swivels around but it's so darned comfy you fall asleep in it - great for 2 whether it's dog and master or 2 people. Even the cats fight to sleep in it!
  8. Really there isn't any set 'rule of thumb' but usually they're done growing around 2 years of age. Most height is gained by 1 year but during the second year, they get their full growth and weight. Any good quality dog food will work but obviously keep away from the 'Old Roy' category and especially away from anything with mostly grains as their food source. I've used both the Chicken Soup brand and Solid Gold with good results but hear that Blue Buffalo is excellent too. She's a beautiful dog - I like that 'robbers' mask' description too!
  9. Judy, he's a beautiful dog! I also think the collar is great - looks great on him that's for sure. How old is now?
  10. I know it isn't the same - but he'll be a nice 'toy' for the next indian dog you get <g> Hang in there!
  11. That was beautiful Yvette, so many of the responses to Cayenne's passing. It's been very comforting to read everyone's sympathy - thank you! ---- Cyndi Because if you believe in something and believe in it long enough, it will come into being. Rolling Thunder, Cherokee
  12. Hi Judy! You're still around - yay!! And your aswer is yes but a qualified yes - same mom and dad but a later litter - I believe our Cayenne was born in November? I don't have my paperwork right where I can put my fingers on it (in storage) but I know my daughter will correct me if I'm wrong <g> So full sister to Shadow Dancer! It's been very difficult to even talk about Cayenne's loss - well, you know about that so I'll shut up. Miss that dog very much! ---- Cyndi "When asked by an anthropologist what the Indians called America before the white man came, an Indian sai
  13. Cayenne's mom was Sky - a beautiful white aidog with blue eyes.
  14. Cayenne - or Kia as I called her - was truly one of a kind and a wonderful spirit. She was a true 'medicine' dog, healing those around her who were sad or hurting. She was a joy to be around, would do silly things to get you to smile. As any of you know who has their own aidog, they can also be purely frustrating too and bless my daughter for taking on much of her training as a pup. Cayenne was a beautiful dog too - she looked a great deal like her mom Dusty or her aunt Cy. Love that red/gold coloring! She is and was unique and special. There will never be another one like her. My t
  15. I don't know if you all enjoy things like this but I've been watching this blog for a while and thoroughly enjoy it - Charlie Coyote is adorable and the blog is fun and information - check it out? http://dailycoyote.blogspot.com/
  16. Any chance of seeing a pic of Bleu - or all of the dogs actually? I'd love to see some new ones of him - is he a lot like Zi or more like Dancer (his mom?) Always curious as to which side rules - Happy or the moms side
  17. You mean there's a difference between english english and american english? Bwahahaha I'm so shocked! I know, I know, I sometimes forget that someone might not recognize the AZ - my bad!! I'll try and learn to be a bit more clear too <g> hey - if you wanna learn american - just ask - I'm sure there are many who can help you out? How is Shunka doing? do you ever see Colin or any of the other ones that have pups from that litter? I just love Colin's dog - my Kiya looks kind of like her - I always mispell the name - but I think its' Sgaith? he told me what it meant - but I've fo
  18. I agree Judy - if she doesn't pick up the pace a bit I doubt if she'll make it to the final group. She's good tho - and the nice thing is almost any of them that are on the main show seem to end up with a contract or some sort of help. This time tho - I hope she's more careful and doesn't get tied up in a 7 yr contract (I think it was 7 yrs?) Arlene said that they let her cut like 3 records but didn't even bother to promote them and kept her from doing anything else because she was under their contract. Which I think was not very nice <g> So hopefully this time she'll come away wit
  19. I know - it's rough trying to catch someone when they're in a different time zone. On the other dog email list - we have Gea and Josanne and others who are across the 'big pond' and the posts always miss each other as far as time - but it doesn't seem to make too much difference. Some - like me <g> - are night owls and then gea and I will actually 'talk' via email in real time Bwahahaha but this is still a good way to catch up on news and such - forums and email lists - they're there when you want to read them and all! So you were computing in the wrong time zone too? Bwahahaha
  20. Liz, I know that I'm coming into this discussion on the late side but just wanted to say how difficult this must be for you all to be going thru. I remember when I was doing Sarah's site there is a picture of Shunka on the first gallery page - and of course he has graced the iidoba site in the famous puppy line up for years <g> Darling photos all - I don't know if I have seen an adult photo but I do remember loving that face in the first photo......Now that he is feeling better and stitches are out, I hope that the nightmare is on it's way out. Smoke and prayers going up for Shunka an
  21. Well, talk about a cliff hanger for Kristy - probably had everyone hanging on their seats waiting to see if she made it or not - love the way they say they'll tell - but first, let's run a commercial!! Anyways, she just squeeked by this time altho I thought her perforumance last nite was probably one of the best she has done yet - so glad she has another chance!! Yay Kristy!! :Bwahahaha:
  22. thanks Lisa - there may be some aidog stuff going on down there so wanted to be sure everyone got a chance to participate!!
  23. Hi owners! If there is anyone in AZ with Aidogs besides Mercy and James? thanks!!
  24. Pit bulls and staff's have a really bad rap/rep. And in some ways it's a shame because there are good pits. B these are dangerous dogs if not trained right - there's no doubt about it, but most of the time, the danger can be directly laid upon the door of the owners. Bad owners/bad dogs. I have 3 pit bulls, a rottie mix and a black lab - all in the same yard next to me, ranging in ages from 2 months to 5 years. All need training and attention but as far as manners, they're sad - barely know down and sit. Bwahahaha I have to go thru the yard to get my mail - or walk around the entire bloc
