We used to dogsit a friend's Jack Russell. Even though he was up there in years, he reigned supreme over my two cockers and dalmation.

My in-laws have two cairn terriers. We visited them over the Fourth of July weekend. They live on a lake surrounded by summer houses that are filled on the weekends; it's quieter during the week. The fireworks set off over the lake by residents went from 8 p.m. till midnight. The dogs went nuts, barking constantly, and my in-laws yelled at them to stop. I told DH we cannot visit again over the holiday weekend. I will go insane.

Dawgluver, the problem escalated when she tried to put the muzzle on him. He was a perfect gentleman at the vet, and they were sticking things here, there and everywhere. Perfect behavior. He is fine when we take him to other people's homes, but is very defensive when people come to our house.

This new groomer said I have the option to stay with him, and that might help. It helps when we bathe him. I pet him and talk to him while DH does the bathing. No problem. If this groomer is successful in grooming him, I promise to brush him every day!!

The dog grooming went well. He was a little nervous and jumpy, tried to bite the bather, but it seems that he just didn't like the other groomer. These people were very gentle with him. So now we have a new groomer!

So glad to hear that it went so well for all of you. One for him. His angel was looking down on him when you found him. Give him a big hug from me. He deserves it.

Dogs are funny people. They have their preferences, as we all do!

Glad you found a preferred groomer, Carol!

We're lucky with Beagle, she loves all the human people around us, and is very well behaved at the vet. She picks and chooses among the dogs though. Females her size or smaller are usually fine, as are big males she knew as puppies. There's a neighborhood weimeraner who tries to ambush her, we had to tell the owners to keep her leashed instead of letting her roam free.

We have folks in the next subdivision where we walk. They have a little two pound poodle-like dog that they leave out all the time, even though it's pretty cold here now. DH said he saw they stuck her in a kennel outside when he was walking Beagle tonight.

I am so tempted to put her in my pocket if I see her stuck in the kennel, or call the Humane Society on them.

Don't hesitate if they continue to put her outside for long periods in the cold. Sounds like they need a wakeup call.

Rusty had to have surgery today. When he kept biting his butt we thought it was because of the tangled hair that was irritating him. The biting continued after the hair cut and then he started scooting. Took him to the vet today and his anal glands were ruptured and he needed surgery. While doing the surgery, out of his butt came a tape worm, so getting treated for them now, too. He had worms in the shelter and was treated for them. When we took him to the vet the did a follow-up check and it was good. So I don't understand why he has them again, unless they were not completely gone to begin with. It is good that he was rescued by someone who has a nice high limit on her credit card! LOL
