Thought it might be worth starting a pet thread as we seem to have rather a lot of them. So do add your photos and anecdotes here...
I'll start with my latest addition, who joined me and my greyhound boy yesterday, straight out of rescue. She's called Valentina Vieri and is six years old. She raced 98 times and won 6 races. Her sire was so successful at racing and stud duties that she has over 8000 half siblings!

I have had a nice time at my friends' house. Most people were in the kitchen, garden, conservatory, watching the fireworks. I was stretched out on the sofa, cuddling the dogs!

And then there were 3...

In addition to the Goofhound, and the Bf's puppy I now have another dog, a stray. The BF brought it round (2 pairs of pleading eyes) and begged that it stayed until we find its owners.
So she went off to the vet last night for a microchip scan but she hasn't got one.
The vet states that she has been abused, may have had pups or a phantom pregnancy, and that she had walked a long way - her poor paws are in a terrible way.
She is timid, desperate for cuddles and was very tired. And incredibly dirty - not farm dirt, just greasy and grey - but she has had a bath and looks better.
Its a collie, and one of those that "smiles".

If I can get her to smile I'll post a pic.

Well done Hossy.  It's impossible to turn them away isn't it?  Are there any other health problems, or will she be OK with a good feed and plenty of TLC?
So, do you think she'll be a permanent addition to the family or will you be able to hand her on to someone else when you've found the right home?

She will be staying, she is soooo desperate for love and cuddles.

I can't even think what she has been through.

The vet thinks she will be happy with me, I am a very responsible owner - apparently, and although she was terrified at the vet she never snarled or whimpered, just thrust herself into the BF and buried her head in his chest.

The only thing she is doing is periodically peering at her rear end, which may just be worms.
The vet thinks that TLC is what she needs.
If you catch her eye, she wags her tail, so sweet.

It may be that she had puppies, or that she is no use with children, but something horrible has happened to this very nice dog. Its apparent that she has been beaten and kicked - you have to move cautiously and slowly around her else she panics.

Hopefully she will forget... I hope that no-one claims her. In two weeks she has her second set of jabs, and her microchip. I think that having done all that we can (internet, dog wardens, rescue centres and police all informed ) in two weeks she will be mine officially.
If she already had a microchip or collar it would have been different.

Its 28 days if you take them in yourself (as long as you have made all efforts to find the owners).
Its 8 days if the god warden has them.

The dog warden just rang. He has spoken to the vet, and is happy that she is here, and that he thinks it unlikely that she will be claimed - lots of collies being dumped at the moment.

She has just been to the loo...

Now I know that dogs like to go "on" something, be that a rough area of grass, in a hedge etc.
The goofhound has taken this to extremes - he now only goes to the toilet in a plant container - gets up there (its a large tub container) and looks like he is on the loo !

Much hilarity the first time this happened - a toilet trained dog.



Now the new one has just done the same thing - but to have a wee !
 Is it me?

It's horrible to think that people can be so cruel to dogs, when all they want and need is affection and to be part of the pack.
Is there any particular reason why so many collies are being dumped at the moment?  

Does she have a name yet?  I hope she settles down soon and enjoys her new life with you.


I love the eccentricity of your dogs!  It sounds like your new addition will fit in well with your household

It is probably because collies are so popular here, and they are not always easy to deal with.
They can ,make very bad familiy pets, and can be destructive if they dont get enough mental and physical exercise.
On top of that is the normal reasons that people get rid of dogs - boredom, too much effort, expense and in t least one case I know of because they shed hair....

She is just playing with the puppy, or rather the puppy is determined to get her to play.

I have no idea why my animals are so eccentric, except maybe they are quite nicely brought up but allowed to be themselves as much as possible, so the dogs are allowed "dog" time - even if that means a certain reduction in my living standards ! (As puppy drags in a hanging basket she has taken off the wall).

If you think the dogs are eccentric you should have met the hamsters... and I couldn't even tell you about the personalities of some of the horses I have known !

Just been outside for a fag, and puppy stood on the garden bench catching raindrops, and that game can go on forever here.

New dog hasn't got a name - all suggestions welcome.

Ah!!
All my pets have been rescues - they have all needed training, even the basics about how to go to the loo.  So you are really lucky if your dogs have a proper dog toilet place.  How much easier to deal with it than my very clean doggie.  She likes to go somewhere clean every time - so my garden is littered with offerings.

Your poor new doggie.  I expect s/he will settle down to be a terrific animal.  I just wonder if the old people did not have enough money to feed the dog, or maybe one of them lost their job.  But it is so irresponsible to just dump them rather than, at the very least, tying them up outside a dog rescue place.  

I wonder if the people are just embarrassed at having to get rid of the animal.

I get the newsletter from the animal rescue place that my doggie came from.  And the stories they tell of the condition that some of their animals come in.  It makes me cry.

so lots of cuddles from me and tail-wags from doggie. x

How lovely to hear of your new addition, Hossy. Your animals sounds really eccentric - a bit like their owner, perhaps??

I can't understand why people have animals and then mistreat them - it's not as if you can have a pet accidentally, is it?! I have heard that rescue centres are having a tough time and that many of them have no room for animals that currently have a home, which might increase the number of dumped dogs, I suppose.

My friend has a young Jack Russell that was born deaf. She is not yet 2 years old and has already needed a hip replacement - the vet thinks that she was probably abused by the breeder because she was deaf. She had already been rehomed and rejected by someone else before my freinds took her in. She now has a lovely home and a bigger dog to look after her. Coincidentally, they both have the same name so are known as 'big P' and 'little P' - the P usually standing for 'Pebbles' but other words are substituted at times, especially when the big one widdles with excitement!

Well it looks like the new dog is going home. Had a phone call from someone in Robomam's village who thinks it is theirs, and after checking with Robomam for a full  character assasination, I have spoken to the owners.

I just hope that this is the right thing for everyone, especially her.

Oh dear hossy, I do not like the sound of that.  Can Robomum keep a look-out for the dog for you?  
Are you close enough to visit and just pop in and see if the dog is OK?
What a difficult position you are in.  Hmm, maybe the RSPCA could pop round for a friendly chat about how to make sure the dog is eating properly, or some excuse like that.

Actually Robomam was almost complimentary about him, which takes a lot, she is a bigger cynic than me!

When he came to get the dog he seemed genuinely pleased, and the dog smiled when they made eye contact, and he happily reimbursed the vet fees ( we had her MOT'd so to speak).

So she has gone, but I am sure she will be fine.

I think the dog warden will be going round to tell them off about not having a collar and id tag... he will then check that the dog is well and behaving normally.

Hi pink,
my doggie has Labrador in her, but she does not enjoy being near to cats at all.  My two do tolerate each other, but never get very close.  When I am in another room the two of them do sit in the kitchen, the cat on his chair and the doggie on the floor, for company.
