I often speak of how dogs of my mothers generation and dogs today are so different. Why is this so?

.

.

Humans have changed, simple as that. Dogs are no longer just pets, they’re family. People used to say they couldn’t own a dog until they got a backyard only because that was where the dog would live and sleep. Today, that excuse doesn’t stop anyone from getting a Mastiff and living in a studio.

.

.

Separation anxiety is at an all time high today, dogs are given every imaginable way of keeping busy and then the owner leaves for work and dogs are bored out of their mind doing destructive things to get attention. Dogs 30 years ago barely got any attention other than a bowl of food and water for the day, get a bath every other month and taken for a walk afterwards where the owner sees how undisciplined their dogs are to be put back in the yard for the next few months again.

.

.

I’ll make more points in future posts of how different dogs of past generations are to today. Chime in and share your thoughts of this post.

The number of fires identified by satellite im…

The number of fires identified by satellite images in the Amazon so far is the highest since 2010 (Brazil’s National Institute of Space Research agency) The number of fires identified in the Amazon region so far this year is 40,341, about 35 percent higher than the average for the first eight months of each year since 2010.

.

Natural fires in the Amazon are rare, the majority of these fires were set by farmers preparing Amazon-adjacent farmland for next year’s crops and pasture. Much of the land that is burning was not old-growth rain forest, but land that had already been cleared of trees and set for agricultural use.

.

Deforestation is always a cause for concern. Last year, the world lost about 30 million acres of tree cover, including 8.9 million acres of primary rain forest, an area the size of Belgium, according to data from the University of Maryland.

.

The destruction of the Amazon rain forest in Brazil has increased rapidly since the nation’s new far-right president took over and his government scaled back efforts to fight illegal logging, ranching and mining.

.

While campaigning for president last year, Mr. Bolsonaro declared that Brazil’s vast protected lands were an obstacle to economic growth and promised to open them up to commercial exploitation.

.

Less than a year into his term, that is already happening. Brazil’s part of the Amazon lost more than 1,330 square miles of forest cover in the first half of 2019, a 39 percent increase over the same period last year, according to the government agency that tracks deforestation.

.

The Amazon is often referred to as Earth’s “lungs,” because its vast forests release oxygen and store carbon dioxide, a heat-trapping gas that is a major cause of global warming. If enough rain forest is lost and can’t be restored, the area will become savanna, which doesn’t store as much carbon, meaning a reduction in the planet’s “lung capacity.”

.

These fires were not caused by climate change. They were caused by HUMANS.

The story goes, these two pit bull bulls became feral (a dog that has escaped domestication and returned partly or wholly to a wild state) weeks after Hurricane Katrina had passed, they were hungry and attacked the Bull. Photo’s we’re captured by a reporter for the Sunday Telegraph who eventually flagged down National Guardsmen who shot and killed both dogs.

There’s lesson(s) to be learned if we’d only be “more like dogs”

.

.

Dogs don’t judge nor do they criticize, loyalty isn’t just a hashtag and they’re always happy to see you. Material things are something to chew on, they’re always down for whatever is going on. A dog will always take the initiative when it comes to spilled food, are amazing listeners and unlike people they’ll decrease your blood pressure.

𝐋ike humans, dogs are social animals and work best in packs. Packs succeed because members of the group depend on one another to survive.

.

.

𝐎ur brains works much like a dogs in that we need each other as much as they need us. We are committed and devoted to those that show us the same, coming from the heart and not because they have to.

.

.

𝐘OLO is an acronym for “You only live once” this mentality will not take you far in a pack. The pack behavior is a survival mechanism of sorts, dogs keep their packs small and workable. We too should learn from this

.

.

𝘼nimal experts believe a pack mentality is a huge reason dogs are loyal to us, being committed and devoted to the team.

.

.

𝐋ead your dog, lead your pack and you’ll be viewed as the head or “Alpha” and if they view you as the head they’ll respect and follow your lead. Dogs don’t just love a good cuddle, they know loyalty will keep them alive. It’s funny how being loyal to those that care can make a difference in your life.

The ABBB actually descends from the various types of Bulldogs that were brought by early settlers to the new world. Working Bulldogs were used to control cattle and pigs, hunt small and large game as well as guard the homestead. The bulldogs were bigger, taller and more athletic than the AKC version English Bulldog we see today.

.

.

In 1979, a group of Bulldog lovers set out to preserve what was believed to be a long lost breed. They gave them a name Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog — founded the Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog Association, and wrote a breed standard. Eventually due to difference of opinions, they broke off and one family (The Lane family of Georgia) has taken credit in the creation of the breed.

.

.

ABBB have also been known by such names as Otto, Cowdog, Silver Dollar and Catahoula Bulldog.

.

.

A story of the Lane family will be posted soon.

Before your dog can’t respect you he must trust you and before he can trust you, he must bond with you. Bonding, trusting and respecting go all hand in hand.

.

.

Bonding; you may love your in-laws but share a bond with a high school friend. A Bond is earned and nourished to eventually build trust.

.

.

Trust; a dog is one of a few animals that can be beaten, discarded or neglected yet will love you or the next man easily as they have a trust in humans. Trust is present in a dogs nature.

.

.

Respect; is earned not given. Any working dog owner would understand this through and through as once a dog Respects you, you have a life long trust and bond with that animal no matter the situation.

The digression of the bulldog breeds saddens me. Although I really like the freckled dog (pictured) he’s truly overweight and another symptom of the overall direction that breeders of all the bully breeds are continuing towards, which is disastrous for the breeds.

.

.

Exaggeration by definition is a representation of something in an excessive matter. A certain few Bully breed breeders are taking this to another level of exaggeration whether it be a wider, shorter, thicker or color mashup of the breed, it’s simply getting out of hand. The freckled dog is an Olde, a relatively newer breed that was intentionally bred to be the performance version of the once mighty English Bulldog but even that breed is suffering from a form of Exaggeration.

.

.

In ending I’m simply stating my opinion one that I’m sure I’m not alone in. I’m not calling out anyone for doing their part I’m pointing out to those that wouldn’t mind being educated on how much the dogs have changed in a relative short time. Slide to the right and see how the bulldog has changed over the last 150 years. I’ll add that in the next few postings I will show how much dogs have changed over the last 100 years.

We as a society love to stereotype. When it comes to the “BULL BREEDS” the media has been known to exacerbate the issues and fill the news with negativity due to their lack of education on the breeds and dogs in general, furthering distorting the public’s perception and conscience…

While cases of aggression in the BULL BREEDS does happen, they’re usually connected to other issues and again judged unfairly due to the negative reporting. A study performed in the journal of Applied Animal Behavior Science (2008) provided scientific data on what breeds are statistically more aggressive than others. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania studied 6,000 dog owners of 33 different breeds and found that the DACHSHUND was most often the more aggressive dog breed when compared to other breeds, even to many of the BULL BREEDS…

The results of the study found:
“1 in 5 Dachshunds have bitten or had tried to bite a stranger and a similar number have attacked other dogs while 1 in 12 have snapped at their owners.” . .

Guess who’s number two on the list with similar data numbers, the tiny Chihuahua with their huge ego with the JACK RUSSELL TERRIER coming in third…

As for the stereotypical breeds, the results for those were average or below average when it came to aggression with the study focusing more on dogs that were aggressive towards strangers, owners and other dogs. In general, they all scored lower than the top three breeds
across the board…

As for my experience I’ve run across dogs of all breeds that have aggression issues including the BULL BREED and can attest to the snippy killer Dachshund attitude. I am not surprised by the results. Next time you come across a wiener dog, let’s hope you don’t run into a frankenweenie.
