The mascot of my alma mater! Thanks Lefty; I've read about Stubby before, but this is the most detailed article I've come across. As mentioned, the mascot is now an English bulldog. Probably fitting - the football team isn't what it was back then, either.

Yeah, a lot of stuff I've never read before.

 

This will only mean something to Canadians of a certain age.

I can't remember, did you get the health insurance for this dog?

no, but this hasn't been that expensive so far. we wanted to, but we knew too little about her and she was too old to get really any good coverage. the initial blood work has been about $300, and the ultrasound will be $200ish. she seems lethargic today; hopefully just a bad day and not signs of a continued decline.

Hope so.

 

Here's an intense GSD.  You see a lot of bitework with dancing decoys and hectic dogs chewing on a sleeve. Not this guy.

Love seeing these dogs at work every time I go to the area.

Sorry for the family that lost the rabbit, but well done, Jake.

Apparently the daycare was taking care of a rabbit and they forgot to close off the room where he was staying...Jake managed to get in and he killed it.
I feel bad for the rabbit and its owner but seriously, the daycare screwed up big time.

I feel really bad for that family. Even if the kennel was absolutely negligent and at fault, there is nothing the family can really do about it save post the story everywhere. In full disclosure, I have a pet rabbit in addition to my Engie.

Hope you get some good news teger.

I didn't mean to make light of a family losing their pet. I'm sure they can sue for negligence but I believe damages would be limited to the cost of the rabbit.

thanks. I'm not looking forward to the ultrasound -- i'm afraid it's going to show that she's full of cancer and there's nothing we can do. she's been really upbeat and active today, but her appetite hasn't been great.

I know Lefty. The dog was doing what it was supposed to do. I have no fault with the dog. It just makes you wonder what the hell people are thinking in these situations. If they allow this to happen, what the hell else goes on in the place to the other animals that are housed.

I just meant that normally i would be like it is a rabbit, dog did what a dogs gonna do, and move on as well. Mine has been so interactive with everyone, including the dog, that I cringe thinking about the situation.

here's Buster my irrationally confident 6mth old Boston Terrier doing what he loves best.... play fighting with larger dogs:

This one is with an Alaskan Malamute (1.5yrs old, 120lbs, superduper beautiful and well trained). That dog was so nice.

My freaking dog is only 17lbs...

It's not the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog.
