Show & Tell: Gone Fishing

Luna has always hunted rabbits and squirrels, but now that she's older and slower she's taken up fishing. She watches bluegills from our lakeside deck. Once, wading, she actually caught one but spit it right out. We think she was expecting it to have fur. -- Susan Sanders, Richfield, Wisc.

Show & Tell: Buddy the Catsitter

Ten years ago one of our barn cats abandoned her four kittens in the yard. We tried to make her take them back, but she kept leaving them in the yard. The kittens were getting weaker and weaker. I called the vet to see what special care they would need. She said besides feeding them we would have to clean them up after each feeding.  Kittens cannot do bathroom duty on their own. That is the mother cat’s duty.

 

So my 6 year-old-son and I took on the duties of bottle-feeding and cleaning.  We set up a schedule that every few hours we would feed them with a tiny bottle of goat milk and wash the kitten’s bottoms. So we began what would be our schedule for the next several weeks. As we attended to one at a time, we would set them on a towel and heating pad to dry off a bit. Our Cocker Spaniel appeared on the second feeding/cleaning and started to help. HE would lick them clean and then nudge them to HIS belly, where the kittens promptly started to suckle! HE was such a devoted babysitter. After the kittens fell asleep, we would put them in a basket to keep them warm. Buddy would lie by the basket and when the kittens would wake up he would come and get us for their next feeding. He was quite the worrywart.

 

Thank you Buddy for all that you gave everyone while you romped this Earth! We love you and miss you. --Marcia Pockat, Ripon, Wisconsin

Show & Tell: Dashing Through the Snow

The Big Question: What would 10-month-old Daisy think of her first snowfall?

As the photo depicts, she didn’t miss a beat. I guess Setters love to run and play in just about anything: sun, rain, sand and, especially, snow. Of course, it always helps if there are some birds around.  —Leah Perkins, Boone, N.C.

Show & Tell: Dog Is My Co-Pilot

 

 

This is a picture of Jack in the back seat of my car on the highway going almost 75 miles an hour. He's normally a very handsome and classy looking husky but with his lips flayling and eyes almost rolled back in his head, in this picture he is the most goofiest dog I've ever seen! Even though his face is completely distorted by the wind, he can't help but stick his head out the window.

Family Dog
Send us your favorites

It’s not surprising that, since they’re such integral parts of our lives, dogs are also part of our individual family histories, and the stories that come from them. When families get together for birthdays, holidays or just for fun, these stories tend to be trotted out and enjoyed once again by everyone. Here’s one we found enchanting, and we’re pleased to share it. Send us your family-dog photos and stories: familydog@thebark.com.
 

"My mother was born 1916 to immigrant parents; her mother was from Hungary and her father was German. She grew up in New Brunswick, N.J. Fido—who was, I think, a Border Collie mix—was their pet, but he was also a working dog, and he took his job quite seriously. My German grandfather was a butcher, and in those days (the 1920s), worked right next to the stockyard... " Click here to read the full story, "Put Fido on the Phone," by Toni Sebor Felt.
