Dogs, the foremost snobs in creation, are quick to notice the difference between a well-clad and a disreputable stranger. Albert Payson Terhune

Interesting news from the dog world

On this page presentation interesting, funny and sometimes tragic events associated with dogs.

Miracle Dog's 60 Mile Car Odyssey
The dog clung to the front of the car for almost 60 miles A dog is recovering after managing to cling to the grille of a car for almost 60 miles. The dog travelled all the way from Coleraine to Belfast, wedged in the front of a Peugeot 306. The driver thought he had struck something on the dual carriageway outside Coleraine after hearing a thud, but when he saw nothing on the road, he continued unaware of his 'passenger'. It was only when he got out at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast that he heard a barking sound coming from the front bonnet.
After such an ordeal, the dog was understandably grumpy, and this attitude has earned him the nickname Father Jack, in honour of the cantankerous priest in the sitcom Father Ted. As reported by Peter Allen on Radio 5 Live 'Drive' programme. 

Buddy the Alsatian Saves His Owner JoeBuddy saves owner joe dial 911 on phone
Chris Trott was on duty answering the emergency phone line, when a call came through from a dog.  Nobody would have blamed her for hanging up, but something about the urgency of the barking and the whimpering made Chris stay on the line.   On checking the incoming phone number Chris realised that the line belonged to Joe Stalnaker, who is known to be susceptible to seizures. The background to this phone rescue was that Joe had pre-programmed the buttons on his phone to dial 911, so all his dog Buddy had to do was to pick up the phone in his mouth.  One of his teeth was almost certain to hold down one of the keys for 3 seconds and thus trigger the dialling.  (See mock-up of miracle dog with phone to the right). The very same thing had happened twice before, unfortunately, Joe is prone to seizures as a result of suffering a brain injury while serving in the army.  Buddy arrived aged 8 weeks courtesy of 'Paws With A Cause', which trains miracle dogs like Buddy to help people like Joe. Surprisingly, Will and Guy learn that there have been other similar cases of miracle dog rescues, for example, Leana Beasley's Rottweiler called Faith summoned help by pressing a speed-dial button with her nose.  Then when the operator answered, Faith barked down the phone so that the emergency services operator realized Leana needed medical assistance.

True Dog Story from the 'Rose and Crown'
A dog owner is having to chain up his pet to stop him hopping on to the bus and going to the pub. Gary Kay's terrier Ratty regularly got on the bus on his own to go to the Black Bull pub, in Hull Road, York, England.  Ratty made the trip to the pub, where he was fed sausages by a barmaid, twice a week, reports the York Post.  His outings came to an end when the pub went upmarket and banned animals from the premises.  But now Gary, from Dunnington, York, says Ratty has found a new local - the Rose And Crown Pub, in Lawrence Street.  He believes Ratty has been getting off the bus at the Black Bull on his own, crossing the road and turning up at the Rose and Crown.
'I've had to start chaining him up because, although he can get to the pub on his own he can't get home,' said Gary. [Not an uncommon occurrence say Will and Guy] 'I've no idea how he is doing any of this or how he crosses the road. This dog just has a mind of his own.'

Dog Tired
An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard; I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of. He calmly came over to me, I gave him a few pats on his head; he then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for several weeks. Curious I pinned a note to his collar, 'I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.' The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar, 'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 and he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?' 

Brandy and Coke
Brandy the Chihuahua, the world's smallest dog, has finished growing, and is just a little taller than a coca cola can has been named the world's smallest doggy by the Guinness Book of Records.  Four-year-old Brandy weighs only 2lbs and cannot bark as her lungs are too small. Owner Paulette Keller, of Largo, Florida, told reporters, 'When I saw her I just fell in love with her. With a dog like this you have to be careful. She can't even jump on or off anything because her legs are so tiny.'
Brandy is proving massively popular on TV in the USA, so watch out for her.  As dog's lives go, this has to be one of the best.
