It's only been 2 months since I had to say goodbye to Goldie and I thought I would wait longer but I have been missing having a companion around so this past weekend I went to a local rescue shelter and looked at a couple dogs.  I was really drawn to a 5 yo Beagle/Terrier mix (their description), female whose name is Roxie.  She had an excellent disposition and we went for a 10 minute walk and she has had some training.  Here is a picture of her that was on the web:



I talked to the shelter last night and Roxie will be coming to live with me.  I am going to be doing some traveling over the holidays but they said they will hold her for me until after the first of the year. In the meantime I will be visiting her and taking her for walks and having some time for us to get to know each other. She is house trained, spayed and has all papers for a clean bill of health including up to date shots.  Also if for some reason it didn't work out I have 30 days to return her.  I'll have a new friend for the New Year.

Envy is a dog's life, study finds

 

LONDON (Reuters) - Dogs can sniff out unfair situations and show a simple emotion similar to envy or jealousy, Austrian researchers reported Monday.

Dogs sulked and refused to "shake" paws if other dogs got treats for tricks and they did not, said Friederike Range, an animal psychologist at the University of Vienna, who led the study into canine emotions.

"It is a more complex feeling or emotion than what we would normally attribute to animals," said Range.

The study, which was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, also showed dogs licked and scratched themselves and acted stressed when they were denied rewards given to other dogs.

Other studies have shown monkeys often express resentful behavior when a partner receives a greater reward for performing an identical task, staging strikes or ignoring what they view as inferior compensation.

It turns out dogs are able to show a similar, if less sensitive, response, said Range in a telephone interview.

In a series of experiments using different breeds of dogs, the researchers looked at how two animals sitting next to each other reacted to unequal rewards after handing a paw to a researcher.

Dogs not given a treat licked their mouths, yawned, scratched and showed other signs of stress and stopped performing the task, Range said.

To show this was not just because the animals were not getting food, the researchers then tested the dogs alone and found that in this situation the envious canines cooperated longer before stopping.

"It is really about the unequal distribution of the reward," Range said. "If it was only about frustration they would stop at the same time."

Driving dog has accident at car wash

 

Sommer Woodward, Staff Reporter, The Daily Times, Pryor, Okla.

The owner of a blue Pit Bull was surprised Tuesday afternoon when her dog shifted the car into gear while she was washing it at Spot Free Car Wash in Pryor.

Police Officer Brent Crittenden said the 1982 Buick doesn’t require the brake to be pressed when shifting, which allowed the dog to shift the car into reverse. He said the 70-pound dog jumped on the dash and somehow shifted the car into reverse.

The car backed out of the a car wash bay on the south side of the car wash and continued onto Highway 69. It traveled north in reverse, then looped around and backed into the automated car wash lane.

Crittenden said the vehicle almost hit another car while backing up on the highway.

“This is the first time in 26 years where I get to work a wreck and leave all my driver info blank,” said Crittenden.

He joked about waiting on confirmation of the dog’s driver’s license before writing any tickets.

The animal was licensed with the city of Pryor, so “I didn’t have to take the dog to jail.”

The owner of the vehicle was unable to provide proof of insurance, so the car was impounded.

Crittenden said since the dog is registered with the city, the owner was allowed to walk the dog home.

She's doing great ... it only took me one week to house train her, and she is already coming to her name also.  Yeah, she was a "bad dog" 
freaking humans.

All three of the friends who had expressed interest in having a small "lap-dog" before I got her have since decided that this just isn't the right time for them.  So ... rather than trying to find her a good home with someone I don't know ... I think I'm going to keep her.  She's so adorable, such a sweetheart - full of love and affection.  And watching her play with her sister SueKaye is heart-warming.  If I can find my stupid camera, I'll take and post some pictures.

I've renamed her "Lucy Lynn" - though I seem to only be calling her Lucy.  She looks like a Lucy, it suits her.  The name comes from the two dachshunds I had as a kid ... "Snoopy", named by me when I was 5, and "Brandy Lynn" named by my little sister.  So, in honor of those wonderful pets, I now have another miniature dachshund ... Lucy.  As sweet and wonderful as she can be.
four dogs now, sheesh... but if you could meet all of them, you'd totally get it.
 
Tom, you are such a sweetheart! {#Hug}
Maybe next summer I can get some pics of SueKaye and LucyLynn!

Abandoned baby found safe with dog

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - A newborn baby abandoned outdoors in winter by her 14-year-old mother was found safe in a dog pen with a mother dog and her brood of puppies near the city of La Plata, Argentine media reported on Friday.

Farmer Fabio Anze found the naked baby girl on Thursday, being kept warm among his dog China's puppies, La Nacion newspaper said. Anze called the police and the baby was taken to a hospital.

Egidio Melia, director of the Melchor Romero hospital, told television and newspaper reporters that the baby was just a few hours old when she was found, and was in good health although she had some bruises.

Nighttime temperatures are chilly but not freezing in the Southern Hemisphere winter in the rural area around La Plata, 40 miles south of Buenos Aires.

Police said they had located the 14-year-old girl who gave birth to the baby outdoors during the night.

It was not clear whether the mother left her baby in the dog's pen or whether the dog found the baby outdoors and carried it in to join her puppies.

amazing....wow.
