Monday Mischief: What To Do If Your Dog REACTS

react

Lulu and Mojo playing

 

I love the idea that you get what you reward.  With Louise I am always anticipating every situation in the outside world so that she does not freak out, and with Sofie, it is just the opposite, I have to anticipate everything inside to keep her anxious OCD world manageable.

What mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz Fearful Friday: Resources

Many of you know that Louise is a fearful dog.  She needs more space and time than many other dogs for many reasons.  Nothing is ‘wrong’ with Louise, that is just who she is.  I try really hard to work with her fears, not to change her, but to make her life easier.  If you have a fearful dog, you might want to check out this wonderful blog called DINOS (DogsInNeedOfSpace.com).

The following is a great resource list direct reblog from DINOS.  If you are not familiar with them please check them out at dogsinneedofspace.com

Tuesday’s Tails: Jacobi & Madge Are Still Waiting For You

So glad you are joining me today for the Dogs N Pawz Blog Hop called Tuesday’s Tails.

New posts go up on Tuesday but you can link up and post when you want all week-long.  The whole purpose is to feature cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, etc. so when you link up is up to you!  Even pets from PetFinder, are fine.  Let’s just get them all homes!

TuesdaysTailsBlogHopOfficialBadge_zpsb5025ffe

Let’s hop to it!  Fosters needed and, of course, forever families.  Jacobi is a great guy, just down on his luck.  And poor Madge, every foster home seems to move on her, and she has been in and out of boarding for 4 months (which is sapping the finances of the little rescue organization). Contact CanineNation.org if you can help.  

————————————————————————

 

tt 7.29.14

—————————————————————————————————————————————-

New Jersey, New York, Penn, New England!!!!  HELP Madge Now.

Madge is a special dog looking for that special someone who can understand how scared the world has made her and help her enjoy all the wonderful things that dogs should enjoy instead of abandonment and pain.

As of this evening, we learned that Madge can no longer go back to her original boarding facility because she suffered the kennel crazies during her first stay there. Madge constantly barked, paced and pleaded to get out of her cage while being boarded, to the point of almost hurting herself. It’s clear to us now that she physically CANNOT go back to boarding, but sadly this leaves us with very little options for Madge and as of Wednesday, July 30, 2014, she will be homeless. Madge cannot be with kids or other dogs (she is not cat tested), so we know that limits her possibilities.

Her previous and VERY kind foster set Madge up with a Banfield account so she can continue to get the medical care she needs. Madge has had a very rough life and she still has a long journey to go, but we know there is a special someone out there to help her along the way. Please share her story and message caninenation.org to help! Shes currently in NJ and needs a miracle now!

TT 6.17.14

Thank you!  Let’s get Jacobi and Madge homes!  Contact CanineNation.org

——————————————————-

Please remember that all pets need loving homes.  Foster or forever – you can help today.  All of us at DogDaz Zoo Thank You!  We rescued Mommy, maybe some animal can rescue you!!
