Howlletter 14:
Ever since starting my dog walking business, I have missed walking dogs at shelters when I could choose the one and create bonds with dogs. However, becoming a dog walker full time is not the only other option for dog walking. There are apps such as "Borrow My Doggie"

Joy of Dog Walking
From The Mindful Mag

Sometime in 2015, an advert caught my eye on my Facebook timeline. it was for a website called Borrow my Doggy, a self explanatory name for a virtual place where dog owners could advertise their four legged friends to potential walkers and sitters. it was a genius idea, it seemed to me.

I wanted to spend time with dogs and I was thinking about getting one full time. Later, that year I found myself creating a profile and joining up. A whole new world of people and canines awaited - what was not to like!

The truth is I can't really afford to own my own dog, and because I also occasionally travel (but don't know any potential dog sitters), the canine sitting website seemed like the perfect compromise. This way, I could spend time with dogs without having the expense or responsibility of owning one.
Not long after joining. I received a message from Jan, a lady who told me she was poody(?) with Chronic Fatigue syndrome and had become unable to walk her own dogs. My heart instantly went out to her and her picture of three beautiful bounds - Phoebe, an eight yer old golden Labrador, May, a black Labrador aged nine, and a four year old curly haired brown mini Labradoodle called Molly. I'd only previously had experience of walking one friend;s dog so was slightly nervous that three might be a handful, but was very touched by Jan' heartfelt plea for help. And so my relationship with Jan and her trio of dogs began.

The joy of dog walking is really quite simple: Happy dogs, time in nature and space. Watching them sniff and explore on a walk with all of their senses is certainly a mindful experience. Dogs take pleasure in the simplest of things - a sight, a sound and especially a pungent technicolour smell, often undetectable...

The Voice of Reason: Do you think "Chicken" is a cute name for a dog?

While walking in New York, I heard someone calling for their lost dog named Chicken. When asking another dog owner about the unusual choice for the missing dog, the woman dog owner said it was a "cute" name. What do you think?

Here is the section on art, I am interested in bringing the subculture of pet as my April Exhibit.

The Pooch in Pawtraiture


It's time to sniff about the attic for ancestral portraits. Sporting art, especially those paintings, featuring dogs, has been shooting up in value lately. The supply of english Art has run nearly dry, especially since American dealers and interior designers have gone barking made for anything canine!

Dogs have long been featured in ancient art, but it was not until the eighteenth century that artists such as Stubbs, Deportes, and Oudry were commissioned by wealthy patrons to immortalize particular pets. Landseer, a favorite of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, imparted his portraits of dogs with human expressions and emotions and inspired countless artists to the name. Indeed, a whole pack of dog artists from the eighteenth century through the twentieth expressed canines in the most favorable light. Examples of their work are available through antique dealers and art galleries in the US and Europe.


Styles:
juliejeppsenart.com/sporting-dogs.html (http://Julie)

A realist style and paints dogs in a nineteenth century manners. Her portraits show their subjects with complex facial expressions, and she imbues her\ paintings with a period atmosphere.





Style 2: Folk Art. Decorative naive traditions of his homeland with the aggressive and vital rhythms of his adopted city.


Donald Wilson,


A series of dogs dressed in clothing and painted in a super-realist style. Wilson's works are both amusing and disturbing, with a complexity of emotion that reaches beneath the surface of the subjects painted.


Julie Evans.


Known for the work as whole of her miniature portraits of dogs. She considers the integral vintage frame, and the many photograp[hs.


“Dog Days” Origin”:


More than 2,000 Years ago, the great heat of summer led to a superstition among the ancient Romans. They believed that the excessive heat, together with the increased disease and death associated with it, was somehow connected with the rising and setting of the star Canicula – the Little Dog. Accordingly, they conferred the name of “Dog Days” to the blazing months of July and August. This unfair and baseless calumny upon the good name of dogs has long since been disproved. Scientists observe that Canicula rises later and later each year; in millions of years they predict, the star will be seen in winter.

Health Check Up



You can find your dog's femoral artery on the inner surface of one of the hind legs. Press gently but firmly and soon you will find the pulse.

Feeding for the small dogs. At one year or older, a single meal can be given, supplemented with a few dry biscuits in the morning and evening., During the colder especially if your dog is active, you might want to mix some oil to add the extra calories.

Breed Spotlight: cairn Terrier.

The Cairn Terrier has always been a reliable companion, especially for little girls. One brave young lady left Kansas with one.


The Cairn Terrier is a little dog that loves people. Old dogs that have been kenneled for years adapt very readily and make perfect house pets. Even the wildest become very gentle in the home, and there is no need to think that being “in” will spoil them – they love people and hate being away from them, unlike the Shetland Sheepdog.

You can find your dog's femoral artery on the inner surface of one of the hind legs. Press gently but firmly and soon you will find the pulse.

Feeding for the small dogs. At one year or older, a single meal can be given, supplemented with a few dry biscuits in the morning and evening., During the colder especially if your dog is active, you might want to mix some oil to add the extra calories.

Breed Spotlight: Shetland Sheep Dog

The Shetland Sheepdog, like the collie, traces back to the Border Collie of Scotland, which, transported to the Shetland Islands and crossed with small, intelligent, longhaired breeds, was reduced to miniature proportions. Subsequently crosses were made from time to time with collies.
The Shetland Sheepdog is intensely loyal, affectionate , and responsive to his owner. Their most known traits are alertness and obedience.

Tattooing

Two types of tatt numbers are put on dogs. One is the owner's social security number, and the dog's AKC registration number is used.

These two numbers are the most common means of identification. The inside of the ear and the groin area are the usual spots for the tattoo mark.
In the colder days, some people would not leave their dogs in an outside kennel. In that case you can build a dog house, or in this case, a sheltie dog house. The best scenario is to prevent dampness and retain heat in the dog house, it should not be placed directly on the ground, but elevated at least several inches. A 2" x 4" beam placed under two opposing sides of the house, with the 4" side lying flat on the ground, should allow for proper ventilation beneath the structure. However, in winter months you will want to close off this space to prevent drafts. In this case, boards can easily and quickly be nailed between the 2" x 4"'s already in place to cover the exposed opening. Keeping the dog house a proper distance from the ground also serves to prevent the possibility of water damage, which will cause the wood to warp and eventually decay. Infestation of the wood by insects can be prevented by keeping the primary wood of the house from contact with the dirt below.

It is difficult to guess what the future holds, but it looks as if the Sheltie is some day apt to be one of the most popular dogs in America. Shelties are a handy size for American homes, easy to take care of, relatively quiet, well protected against weather, obedient, and intelligent.

Health: Can medicinal mushrooms save dogs?

The dogs with the PSP had survival days of 199 days with 100mg, 117 days with 50mg and 86 days was reported as the median for the dogs in the literature side effects were noted. There are 140,000 species of mushrooms worldwide, only a handful have been examined such as Turkey tail, reishi, shiitake, maitake, and cordyceps.





Training



I hear you. Your dog knows sit. “{It's his best command. He always sits when he's told.” Except he doesn't. Test your dog in the presence of distractions. This is called proofing. It will truly test your dog's understanding. Can he sit or down when he hears a horn or sees another animal? Try all the commands and see what your dog will want as a reward over the distraction.



Art Section: - This is a memorial for Smoky, the tiniest war dog.

On January 1st, the AKC welcomed the 197th recognized breed. A shiny new toy dog breed called the Biewer is a mix between a Yorkie and a Maltese. It has a tri color silky long coat, and a signature pony tail. It makes a great companion for a variety of people.



What's a trial run for adopting?



The best option by far if you can foster the dog for a week. You can monitor problems yourself, but also set up an appointment with your veterinarian. The trail period will reveal the dog's true health and behavioral status.





Spring Cleaning



How often should you maintain your dog's hygiene?



Brush Teeth: Every other day.

Wipe inside ears: Every 2 weeks.

Trim or grind nails: Every 1-2 weeks.

Bath: Every 2-4 weeks

Brush Coat: Daily for long coats then up to two weeks.



Breed Spotlight:



This breed is confident, versatile and adept at problem solving. Can you guess which breed I am describing? It's the German Shepherd. They were recognized by the AKC in 1908. For the past 10 years, GSD have placed at number 2 of 10 of the most popular breeds and have remained in the top 10 for decades. For more on German shepherds read, “Scent Science and the amazing Ways Dogs Perceive the World by Cat Warren.
