Been a warm.one today so our Sunday dog hasn't been far. We took him to the Derwent at Church Wilne where he spent 3 hours fetching sticks and his ball and having a fantastic time.

Mrs S is a volunteer with a dog locating charity (Harvey's Army).
As the regional leader said to gatherers at the Rempstone Country Fair yesterday, and again today: " be vigilant and take care with walking dogs at the moment, because even early in the morning the temperature has been over 20C. No dog has died from not being walked in the heat, butsadly, many dogs have died because they were walked in the heat".
They are wise words: dogs do not have sweat glands, and the only way they have to shed excess body heat is through panting.
I walked our 2 for 15 minutes earl this morning, and both were clearly struggling with the temperature, so we turned around and went home, where they have both lain in the shade, apart from the occasional stroll around the lawn to relieve themselves.

Why do people insist on talking to dogs as though it's a small child?
It doesn't understand English you twonk, or any other languages for that matter.

Bailey and Bella understand every word, are fluent in English and German (they are Weimaraners after all).
And they agree with your point about talking to them like they were toddlers.
They are both a damn sight more intelligent than 80% of the British population these days.

I never even did the baby talk to my own baby, let alone others, but for some reason it seems appropriate when stroking a cat from head to tail.

I always speak Greek to my cat so the word malaka crops up on a regular basis. The dogs deaf so he's just got an excuse for ignoring me now.

As a dog owner it’s the twats who don’t put their dog on a lead and then moan when my dog - on a short leash- snaps at it when it comes sniffing

I've never understood it, if your dog attacks a a person/another animal in the park It will get put down.... if you love that dog so much why put it in a situation where it may follow instinct? That situation? Having it in a public place not on a lead.

Bizzare.

It is and in Mabo you very rarely see anyone with just one dog. Anything up to half a dozen. I love my animals but some of the folk who own them are complete twats.
Then there's the ones who only got a dog because the kids wanted one. Said kids are now bored of the dog don't want to take it out and definitely don't want to pick it's shit up.
There's a bloke at the back of me who got a dog because his wife died and he was lonely. The dog runs around the garden jumping up at the fence going banana's every time someone walks past. He said to me once, " ha ha he doesn't need exercises look at him go." He never ever takes the dog a walk. It runs around because it's stir crazy. I've thought about reporting him but I reckon it would be a waste of time as he's an ex copper.
10 out of 10 to you Barry for not getting a dog if you're not keen on them and all that goes with them. I'm sure you're kids must have asked about it.

I was brought up with dogs my whole life who were all placid and good natured. Our family never smacked a dog or shouted at them. Just were firm in our voice, gave them the stern eye and pointed to what we wanted.

One day I went around to a former mate's house. Me at the age of 13 thinking all dogs are the same went straight in to stroke him and the dog jumped up and bit my finger. Had to get a tetanus injection straight away.

The owner is always the problem when it comes to aggressive dogs. The father of my friend's family was a lunatic man with thick gold chains, bracelets and BMW, who threatened to hit me when I had a fight with his son because his son was bullying most of the street, and when he heard the dog had bit me he started smacking the dog about. Idiot owners need to realise that only encourages dogs to be more violent. Or they go right into their shell. Behaviour breeds behaviour. :rolleyes:

I always have George on a lead. He's brilliant with people but he can walk past 9 dogs and be fine, the 10th one hell decide, I don't like that fucker and he's on one. I think he lost alot of his dog social skills being in Greece because he very rarely met another dog.

I have my dog on a long lead when I take her to the park.

She doesn't like other dogs for some reason so I'll reign her in when I see other dogs approaching.

What I don't like is when the owners of other dogs have their dogs off the lead when they know they might be similar (not liking other dogs)

It puts me in a difficult position where I feel like I have to pick my dog up to get away. It's really inconsiderate. Once again, this is down to the owner....

I'm just pleased my cat seems to have stopped attacking people. Although the neighbour did say to me she tried to make a fuss of her the other day and just got a look of contempt.

No mate the kids have genuinely never been interested... probably put off by me commentating on the idiots that own them on a daily basis hasn't helped. Put it this way i dont hold back when one comes near me or mine uninvited in public.

Any tips on getting a cock a poo to return when off lead. She’s 18 months and generally pretty good off lead, returns when called then get treat but then gets this puppy twinkle in her eye-then off she goes through a hedge, through barbed wire etc -difficult to get back!
