I’ve been working on an article for our doggies den about micro-chipping, and I just wonder how many of you have inserted a micro-chip into your dogs. Or if you’re considering it.
If you didn’t notice, most of the posts this week have revolved around the theme of dogs doing something out of the ordinary, many times helping their families out of a jam. Which begs the question, has your dog ever done anything heroic?
I wrote an article this week on dog shows, and it got me to wondering about the types of things you might do with your dogs. Please vote below (my dogs all fall into the last category).
We all know that some dogs were bred to hunt while others were bred to look cute poking their head out of your carry-all. Which one is yours?
After posting this week about the poodle grooming finalists, it got me to thinking about the different types of contests available for dogs. I’m not talking about conformance shows, obedience trials, or other sporting events, but about the type of thing you might see at a family picnic or county fair. Have you been involved in any of these types of contests with your dog?
While we were dog-sitting last week, the guest dog had my cats hiding under the bed the whole time he was here. Made me realize how lucky I am that my dogs and cats get along, at least most of the time. How about yours?
After writing earlier about Brian Williams’ 15-year old dog, it got me to thinking about dog ages. So, this week’s survey is asking you to tell us how old your dog is. Again this week, I have not blocked repeat voting, so you can vote for each of your dogs if you have more than one.
I had to laugh when I saw the results of last Saturday’s survey. Here I was, worried about the post I did about my dogs’ sleeping in my bed, thinking I would be revealed as a bad, bad dog guardian for having no discipline in my home. So, when I viewed the survey results, I found out that 52% of you are just as bad as I am! 25% of you have the dog under the covers, as I do, while 27% have the dog in the bed, but on top of the covers. So, I don’t feel guilty anymore! Thanks!
Those of you who read my post Wednesday night know that I was getting a kick this week out of where my animals had sprawled for the night. So, I’m curious – where does your dog sleep at night? For this week, I haven’t blocked multiple responses, so be sure to submit an answer for each of your dogs, if you have more than one.
I just wrote an article on dock diving, and I am so psyched about it! Look for it soon in our doggies den article library. In the meantime, take our survey below telling us whether or not you are familiar with the sport.
