Welcome to Man's Best Friend


Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless he's owned a dog. A dog can show you more honest affection with a flick of his tail than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes. - Gene Hill

Near nightmare scenario. Dog breaks free of leash and bolts on a cold night. Lose track of him at an unlit corner - no idea which direction he ran. Nobody is outdoors (too cold) to help guide the search. 

Happy ending - 19 hours later (after a 10 degree F night), dog is found safe and healthy, if cold and hungry by a family who happened to see him huddled by the retaining wall of the river. 

I never want to spend another night like that one. I hope that's true of the dog too.

I encourage you all to give to the Beagle Freedom Project- http://beaglefreedomproject.org/ or at least read up on some of the conditions that these poor dogs live in. I am not a PETA type, but a true beagle lover. You will shed tears of sadness & happiness after seeing more about their lives.

I also knew a border collie.  I have read they're smarter.  Maybe too smart...  he was a little mischievous.  But lots of fun.

About getting a collie.  My lassie-type collie was a great friend, easily trainable, and great with children and other dogs.  He survived the south Georgia heat, but I'd think twice -- unless you can let him in for some A/C -- that coat is thick!  Died too young of heartworms -- should've vaccinated him (at the time at least, you had to do that young).  Be prepared to get matts and burrs out of that coat.

Terry, 

I have given my dog "Frosty Paws" in the past and haven't recently. I didn't know they were pulled from the store. Thanks for sharing the info. So sorry for your loss, man,

Terry-- call some of your local vets and ask them.  If anyone knows about a connection between such a product and illness in our best friends, it'll be them.

I'm thinking about getting a collie any advice
