We bought our first dog. He is an Austrailian dog. He spends a lot of time on the roof of our house. Lately, however, when the mail is relivered, Wally jumps down off the roof and tries to Billy-Bong the mailman. Should we too, be concerned about a possible deficiency in Wally's standard Purina diet?

Australian ya say..the down under country?? WHAT THE FREAK?? This is a pup..right?? Get him off the roof and train him to behave. He should NOT be loose when the mailman comes. Pets, such ad dogs NEED to be trained. You are their adopted parents.. take responsibility!! Ya know, if a neighbor sees your new puppy on the roof..by his/her self.. they nay look upon it as abuse.. Just saying®

Great post..
Umm maybe a possible lack in diet..lol
or indeed might have something to
do with.. the fact that it's a DOG(:

I have a black lab/collie mix.

She's 100% racist,
barks out the window at any other race.

Strong growls of objection to people in wheelchairs:
crutches.. walking aids(:

Thinks there should have been a law past
that no other dog should be allowed on the
road ONLY her:

makes it a daily 'who is gonna be faster' game
whether the mailman can get the letter in
before she nips his finger.



Think it should have been an extra road rule
that NO ONE is allowed pass within inches of
my car, either before or behind.
or DARE ever look in the windows.

Objects in the most vociferous terms
to road workers wearing high vis jackets.

Breaks wind in company with no apologies!

BUT .......

There's a wondrous magic in her eyes
that wipes out ALL her faults.

Animals do not discriminate you in any way..they just wanna be your friend. Some folks prefer animal pals THAN human pals.

True. I've heard someone say that about animals before. When I see those commercials for abused animals, it makes me cry. How the heck could anyone hurt/harm an animal or pet who depends on them; trusts and loves them unconditionally?

Why does this sound like a crank thread to me? All kidding aside, as a dog owner pat and present with experience, I basically know what to expect from a dog and am not surprised by anything involving dog ownership. First time ownership of a dog is an experience. Some dogs are compliant while others can be a bit more challenging and in some rare cases, a dog may be totally incorrigible in spite of an owner's best efforts. I would hope that anybody who cares about his/her dog would not feed them Purina anything if they are truly concerned about their pet's well-being.

Sounds like your dog is more qualified to train you than you are to train it.

True,

NO ONE should ever trust or feel they
'know' a dog, their thinking follows
very different rules indeed.. and they can
'turn' at a moment's notice..ie
my dog thinks motor bikes and vacuum cleaners
are a type of loud animal!!
I know by his reaction,
she sees the headlights of a motor bike as EYES(:

I feel if they are treated in a fair manner..
with a mix of love and good discipline,
it'll be ok.

WHAT did your last line, about Purina.. mean?

I'd be interested if you'd elaborate..

and

thanks.

Just like people, every dog needs to be trained from a very early age and have rules to live by....Morals for people....Morals for dogs.
Dogs are a hell of alot smarter that most people give them credit for....and I really prefer the company of my dogs over most of the people I've meet in my life.
My dogs will stick by me through thick and thin ~ My dogs will do there very best to protect me in times of trouble & I will do the same for them....

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it sounds like you have the self esteem issues and not me. I make a comeback to a sillyassed trollish post in the first place and you show the rest of Topix how well you can dish out and how poorly you can take it. Read this before you try to practice any more psychology without a license.

Purina contains a lot of grain fillers and much of it is highly indigestable corn meals. Dog's digestive systems are not designed for digesting grains of any type. Next time you go to the supermarket, look at the packages for some of the better known brands of Dog food carried by all the Supermarkets and check the first ingredient listed. In most cases, it is ggound corn which is no damned good for any carnivore, canine or otherwise. You will also find that meat by-products are listed ahead of meat which means that real meat is only a very small percentage of the actual make up of most dry dog and cat food. There is not enough space to get into all the issues so I will leave you these links:
