  1. Yes, I'm going to keep him until he has a good home. There is no way I'm going to dump him anywhere. He is too good of a dog to dump off. Thanks for your concern.
  2. Hello, I need to find a good home for my BC. I know - please spare me the hate messages and the lectures. I could give you a sob about why but the bottom line is this, my BC needs a good home. I don't give him the attention he needs and I know he needs a good home where he will get lots of attention. My wife and I are gone all day and well, he looks sad to me. I live near Denver and he has all his shots and a locator chip and is in good health. If any of you are from Colorado and would love to have this black and white BC, about 35 lbs - probably mixed with a tiny bit of cocker spaniel, please email me. I've contacted the 2 rescues in my area and no one has reponded - so if you are from one of the rescues please contact me. I don't want any money for him - I just want him to be happy and in a good home. Jay jabawaki1@yahoo.com
  3. Ok, here?s my 2 cents as unpopular as it will be. Simple. Don?t let your dog off the lease!! I am a proponent that dogs should always be on a leash in public. Why? It?s a danger to them, others, and other dogs if they are loose. Dogs can be unpredictable. I was walking my dog on a leash, with my wife and 8 month old. Yeah, someone with a loose dog and guess what. He ran away from the owner and attacked my dog. 1 foot away from my 8 month old all hell broke out.. I grabbed this stick and fended off the other dog that was easily 70lbs. I can only think about what would have happened if the stroller was knocked over. The owner comes running up to me and beechin? at me. Yeah, it?s my fault because I was protecting my baby. This is the kind of irresponsibility that drives me crazy. Where I live, most trails and open spaces don?t allow dogs because they upset the wildlife. Some people don?t like dogs. And it?s their right to do so. It?s annoying when you are minding your own biz in a public place and dog invades your space, or worse trys to jump on you or touch you. If they run off as you described ? there are cars, snakes whatever. You can avoid most of the issues by simply keeping your dog on a lease when not in your home or yard. If you don?t have yard, then you need to find a secured area to train. Not a park where other people have the rights to come and go ? and parks attracts kids (see story above). I diligently clean up after my dog, and keep him on a leash, out of respect and protection for others. My opinion is that it?s irresponsible and annoying to have a loose dog. We live in a society where everybody thinks they have the right to do whatever they please regardless of the impact to others. Sorry, if I offended anyone. I'll get off the soap box.
  4. Ok, so my first answer is EVERYWHERE. From Denver you can see mountains. Just West of Denver is endless beauty. I love the winter, it's just wonderful. We moved here 4 years ago from Texas and never look back. Just about 100% of the places require a leash, so if you're expecting free roam, I wouldn't coun't on it. There is wildlife everywhere, most trails require dog's on a leash and you WILL get a ticket if a ranger finds you with a loose dog. It's detrimental to the wildlife to have a loose dog and they take it seriously. No joke I have seen the following hiking: moose, elk, wolves, coyotes, rattlesnake, moutain lion, bear droppings - YIKES, lots of deer, sheep, long horn ram Estes Park is a fun but very touristy place and beautiful as the foot of the rocky mountians. Estes Park is the inspiration for THE SHINING and Steven King filmed the SHINING mini series right there in Estes Park at the famous Stanley hote. Oh, and there isn't the famous garden as seen in the movie. Elk are EVERYWHERE. It's a small town, so if you are spending a week, plan on taking a day trip. The major resorts are not far away, Breckenrdige, Vail etc... Another interesting place is NEDERLAND and a nice drive to the mountains. Lots of places to see and things to do. And... if you come in the winter time there is WORLD CLASS skiing. Skiing doesn't start until November, but by October, there will definlty be snow in the mountains. Depending on when in November, you may be able to get some skiing in. Ask if you have more questions. jabawaki1@yahoo.com Jay
  5. Ouch. I don't think it's that easy. At this point, this could turn into an ugly, semi-philosophical "are humans worth more than other living things?" discussion.To me, they are not. Who is most important to someone depends, in my personal opinion, not on species but only on the "bond" described by SoloRiver. I think this story is heartbreaking, and I wish so much that I could help somehow, but I can't . I can only do what someone else has already done, and wish you peace of mind. It's not easy and it is heartbreaking.
  6. THAT DOG BITES! - That's what my Dad used to say.I know, I know, lots of you will say he's trainable, I disagree. I love dogs, period. I had a dog that bit someone - for no reason and it was intentional - it's dangerous to people and a liability. The dog has to go, and you can sleep good at night afterwards knowing he won't bite or harm a child.
  7. I've read many BCs take to a frisbee right away. My Buddy just sits and watches me. Anyone have experience with teaching frisbee catching?
