Do I Deserve A Bollocking

Recommended Posts

i have posted many times about trying to keep my beloved cool,as his hair underneath his body was getting thick i tried to trim it with my shaver to no avail,last friday the vet came to give him is heartworm jab and i mentioned about how thick his coat was,he told the wf.why not have him trimmed so i said ok but not too short,well you can guess what i am going to say next,the wf.had already phoned me what to exspect after 6hrs in the salon he came back in his birthday suit i was horrified.now lets talk about how the dog felt,first he eat all his food,bedtime he didnt want the aircon on,now he sleeps all night on our bed with only the fan and he cant stop galloping arround the house,his coat is starting to grow and already its turning to a dark grey and he seems very happy in himself,but he is not the georgous brute he was.so did we do the right thing or should i have my arse kicked.

With the heat at the moment I would reckon the dog loved it.

Try to get the dog to post on here and give us his own view on the matter

Don't worry about the mirror. Dogs can't recognise their own reflection. The "mirror test", which is purported to show self-awareness, has only been passed by great apes (humans, gorillas, chimpanzees, &c.), dolphins, killer whales, elephants and (rather surprisingly) magpies.

That's an interesting statistic. Anyway I hope you haven't laughed at him meatboy.? Well not to his face anyway! biggrin.png

My pal's old terrier liked to see what was happening outside the window on long drives....he would run to one window and stare out for 10 secs...then realise he was missing out on the other side.....Gawd help anyone stuck in the back seat with him!

Lovely dog though....

Let's face it, meatboy, lovely though he is, your dog is unsuitable for the climate... and you're going to go on getting these problems. Go with it, man! I'm with you all the way!

A Thai friend of mine was given a St Bernard. After two weeks of non-stop slavery to the poor dog, he couldn't stand it any longer. "You have to be a fulltime dog-keeper to have one of these", he said. I think he gave it away.

I wouldn't feel too bad.

Does your dog look something like this?

me and mrs been together 25years she has never had children so this is her boy,sometimes i sit and think what would have happened to him if he hadnt come to us,and he was a gift,so cant wait for saturday when he see's his car and all the neighbours who cant figure out why the mrs with the biggest property on the mooban only has a rusty old push bike,see their faces when she say's she bought it for the dog.

jsut shaved foofoo and lilee down since we are having 40 celsius and only now am i using a/c; foofoo doesn have psychiatric problems when he is shaved down, including attacking himself when he feels his tail fringe on his naked back, biting his legs etc... however, theis year , i have shaved him every other week, so he has stopped that behavior.... and this week i also did his face, ears, and empty eye socket area (other wise he looks lopsided with hair over one side of his face but no eye)>

dogs do recognize other dogs and in mirrors, and recognize their own breeds more (had a bull terrier that loved to talk only to bullies; foofoo will talk with other furry lhasa types; boxers love meeting other boxers... they do have some self recognition, just dont think and consider how they look, which is why no balls, or one eye dont bother them, only the owner.)

just get a clipper (preferably, for a malamute , a dog clipper and not what i have which is a hair clipper), and do his stomach every week, what i told u to do many posts ago. a naked stomach and back is a cool dog ; i sometimes leave the legs unclipped to prtect against thorns and stuff we have here.

Wifes sister in bkk has a shnauzer and it gets a baldy job twice a year. From the way it reacts I reckon it loves it.

Lots more energy and doesn't spend so much time hiding in in shady corners in the garden

When we moved to Tropical north QLD we had a shepherd Malamute x...always thought she may be excessively hot after the Melbourne climate and asked a couple of vets about shaving or trimming.....the answer was a definite NO. Although they are equipped for low temps they also survive well in the 38 + summer heat of the the northern climes.....guess it is about insulation...don't see Aussie sheep having a problem....

She was in a perpetual state of moult though ..of that fluffy undercoat...used to take her to an isolated beach and pull off in chunks..in addition to brushing with a wire type brush.

She spent all her time at the beach in the shallows though.....kept her belly cool I guess.

One of our dogs here in Thailand is a shepherd.....she lays in the midday sun...weird...maybe not, seen lots of hairy German tourists do it too....lol
