    My Goofy Dog

    So it is snowing here in CT again this morning, and I was out shoveling the snow off the deck. My crazy shepherd loves crunching on ice, and will do so until her gums bleed. So she will stand on the ground and catch the snow and ice as it comes over the side when I shovel.

    Thought I would snap a quick photo:



    Anyone else's shepherd do something similar?

    My rottie does, he will position himself in front of the shovel so the snow hits him when I throw it off. His eyes get as big as garbage can lids. If I try to throw it over him he leaps up to grab it. To him it's game on time.

    I had one as a kid that would constantly bite a stream of water. Filling her water bucket was fun to watch. She just couldn't understand why she couldn't grab that stream. Good memories.

    At least it doesn’t dig up rocks and though them in the air catching them in its mouth. That’s what my buddy’s dog does, it still has teeth left, but I think they are all broken.

    Ya gotta love a dog! The other day I was out cooking on the grill, and cooked up some hotdogs while I was at it. I love sauerkraut on a hot dog, and was piling it on thick. The dogs came around and of course wanted some of what I was eating. I gave one of the dogs a little sauerkraut and he ate it! I had to now feed all 4 dogs some, and only one didn't like it! Dogs that eat sauerkraut! Who would have thunk it!
    Y'all be safe now, ya hear!

    Actually she will dig up rocks and crunch them as well. She knows the commands "drop", and "leave it", but as soon as I turn my back it is game on again. She also likes grabbing splits from the woodpile and crunching those up as well. Several times she has got a piece stuck at the roof of her mouth between the upper teeth, and I have had to reach in and pluck it out.

    Also, my son was playing ball with her using an aluminum softball bat and a tennis ball. So he throws the ball up and swings, and she jumps for the ball at the same time. The bat connects with her mouth and breaks one of her lower canines. She doesn't yelp at all, just runs after the ball and brings it back, spraying blood everywhere from the broken tooth. That root canal cost me $700, but she is worth it.

    My sheltie used to do that. He loved trying to catch snowballs too. He also liked when you just randomly throw snow in his face. I didn't get it.

    I used to have a dog that would go after the stream of water coming out of the sprinkler. It looked like he was trying to use it as a water pick!

    My dog will eat almost anything, even including salad and other vegetables. What she really loves though is sweets and chocolate, although I only give her the latter in moderation. Too much chocolate is deadly for a dog.

    Chocolate is bad for dogs...not just deadly... any amount affects a dog.. sometimes you can't see the effects of it. It increases the serotonin output in the brain just as it does in humans. But in humans, the body knows when to stop the output...

    Chocolate. Very bad for dogs.

    Absolutely no dark or semi-sweet chocolate.
    A VERY TINY amount of weak chocolate is OK & I mean like a small teaspoon of ice-cream.

    Sometimes if I eat a chocolate bar I'll give my dog a tiny piece about the size of a pea.
    That's enough for her to be happy and feeling like she is getting something good.

    GRAPES and raisins...can also be DEADLY to dogs.
    Your dog for sure is not going to croak from one or two grapes or a couple of raisins but, don't ever give them any more than that.

    Our veterinary hospital gets approximately 50 cases a year of dogs in toxic shock overdose from grapes, raisins, & chocolate.

    Onions are bad for them too. I make special doggy chicken soup with no onions because my two slobs love it. They eat as good as I do.

    Sounds like typical GSD behavior. We've had several of them....Got to love them.
