RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I have followed this thread from the very beginning. For some reason, I decided today to go read the beginning again. During the last 12 years, I have cried with the other members as they lost beloved pets. I have also lost some of my own. Thank you Richard for rescuing an old dog and starting us all on this wonderful journey. Each animal that has passed through this story has touched some or all of us. Each human has done the same. Thank you also to all who have kept the story going. I have checked this thread almost everyday for 12 years, it does not seem that long.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Sit outside, but a bit away from the food when you put it down. Over a very slow period move the food closer to you. It works best with very stinky wet cat food to really entice him. As he gets more comfortable, let your hand hang down beside the chair to give him a chance to approach you. Do not watch him, but read a book or your phone when sitting there. It can take some time, especially if it is truly feral and not a former pet.

RE: When a 50 pound puppy wants to be held...

I am very sorry. No matter what many say, some pets just don't or won't fit in your family. If you become fearful of the dog, it can just reinforce the unwanted behavior. Be kind to yourself even though she had to be returned.

RE: Heaven Acquired a New Angel Calvin's Gift

You and Calvin have been a part of my life since you first began the stories of his adoption. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. May you find peace in this difficult time.

RE: I just don't know to do

We live in a very small town. No local dog obedience classes. No local dog park. No local doggie daycare. Really the socialization is the least of my worries. The dog weighs 35 pounds. I have no difficulty keeping him under control the few times people come by, or even on walks. It is really only a concern if he goes to another family. He is a house dog that is with me whenever I am at home and we will probably just have reduced outside activity until my work hours stabilize. My signature is a bit misleading. The kids are no longer rugrats, but extremely busy high school and college students. Dog care falls to me and I was aware if that at adoption, but life happens and work has increased in an unexpected manner. Thank you far all suggestions and support. If you have more to say i am ready to listen and learn. We are working on mind engagement. I was really just worried about reduced physical activity and some comments have helped me realize it is not quite as big a concern as I was making it. Edited for spelling. Gee I can't spell on my phone.

RE: I just don't know to do

Golf cart or bicycle are not an option. Golf cart - we are in town and can't use one. Bicycle, one or both of us would end up run over. The chuck it would be great except it is winter and I get home after dark. We have spent yours throwing a tennis ball in a local ball field in summer when it is still light when I get home. He can spend two hours straight running tennis balls in a field. Edited for spelling.

RE: I just don't know to do

He is a mutt. Probably a terrier of some kind mixed with lab. He looks a lot like a miniature lab (even had webbed feet) but acts like a terrier.

I just don't know to do

September of last year a puppy joined our family. He is 35 pounds of tennis ball catching machine. At the time, I worked 2 1/2 to 3 says a week. I am at the same job but now working 4 to 5 days per week. I am on my feet all day and have begun having knee problems and am having trouble giving him any exercise, let alone enough. He is not getting overweight, he is just not getting out enough for a high energy dog. We also almost never have company, so he is very fearful of strangers which makes him bark and growl at people on our walks or the few times people do come to visit. I don't know whether to find a new home for him or to keep him with a less than optimal life. He is a member of the family, but I will let him go if that is what is best.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, thanks for stopping by to say Hi. I have followed this thread from the very beginning and read everyday. I have not and probably will not contribute. For some reason every time I lost something on a message board, I look at it and say to myself, oh no one wants to read this. Still, I feel like I know all the regular posters on this thread and miss them when they take a few days off. God bless you, your family and all who post or just read here.
