This is time of the year dogs are given as gifts and just like most gifts, they’re forgotten by January. A house doesn’t need a dog unless it’s ready for one.

.

.

Before giving the gift that keeps shitting, rethink that thought as they’re so many dogs in shelters and dog pounds.

.

.

If you do bring home a dog, that home will be complete with a dog. Do the right thing and train your dog to fit your lifestyle and family needs. Pick the right breed and make the time to put into your new family member.

.

.

This is to everyone who does bring home a puppy/dog this holiday season, if you need help with your new acquisition don’t hesitate to reach out… Happy Holidays all🎄

It’s not the word that a dog begins to understand, but the actual sound of the word attributed to the language being spoken. After hearing the word/sound “sit” many times, a dog will eventually associate it with the behavior.

.

.

An average dog identifies 150 or so words/sounds by association, with some dogs learning 250 or more. A Border Collie named Chaser takes the cake, it was reported that he knew the distinct names of 1022 objects including 800 different dog toys.

.

.

In multi-cultural homes, dogs are becoming multi-linguistic. Learning an object such as “ball” can be said in different languages yielding the same result.

When does your female dog begin her heat cycle…

When does your female dog begin her heat cycle?

.

.

A female dog typically enters her “heat cycle” or Estrus twice a year, starting usually at 6 months of age with larger breeds beginning their cycle as late as a year old or later. Once a cycle begins, on average last 3 weeks.

.

.

What to look for:

.

.

The ProEstrus is the beginning stage, one will begin to see the females Vulva swell. It’s common for the bitch to lick herself in that area and male dogs will begin to react to her by sniffing her as she’s producing a hormonal scent. She will begin to produce a bloody discharge, this is all normal.

.

.

One will probably notice the bitch would become flirty with dogs and “Flag” whenever another dog comes around her. Flagging is when she raises her tail and hind quarters up high to attract male dogs for breeding.

.

.

If the idea is to breed your female, between day 8th thru 12th the discharge lightens to a pinkish color, her Vulva softens and her eggs are released from the ovaries.

.

.

Note: if you do not plan to breed your bitch, you’ll notice her discharge look bloody again. Don’t worry, shes not in heat again. This time is called the Anestrus

.

.

Lastly, please note: MALE DOGS DO NOT COME INTO HEAT. It is biologically impossible. A male dog is able and ready to mate at any time.

They may look fun and cute, Maltese dogs are often intolerant of children or other animals. It is not uncommon for Maltese to be hostile to people other than their owners.

.

.

A common problem often found in the Maltese breed is the dark coloration under their eyes, coming from their tear ducts. Not necessarily a problem, “tear staining” can often be an eyesore for some owners, and is usually just caused by overwatering of the dog’s eyes or even just the size and production of their tear ducts in general.

.

.

It is believed that the Maltese breed white coat was specially bred by the Romans. The color white was sacred to the Romans, who wanted their pets to exhibit an air of divinity.

The Pomeranian was larger than it is today, think American Eskimo sized. Both dogs are Spitz types (a dog family that lived in parts of Europe and Asia) Dogs of the Spitz family have prick ears, tails that curl up their backs and a thick double coat. The Pomeranian are today the smallest of the Spitz type.

.

.

The breed is believed to have been given its name by the association with the area known as Pomerania, located in northern Poland and Germany along the Baltic Sea. Although not the true origin of the breed, this area is credited with the breeding leading to todays original Pomeranian type.

.

.

Two members of the British Royal Family influenced the evolution of the breed. In 1767, Queen Charlotte, brought two Pomeranians to England. The dogs named Phoebe and Mercury, were depicted in paintings by Sir Thomas Gainsborough. These paintings depicted a larger Pomeranian (30–50 lb) showing modern traits such as the heavy coat, ears and a tail curled over the back.

.

.

Queen Victoria, Queen Charlotte’s granddaughter, was also an enthusiast and established a large breeding kennel. She favored the comparatively smaller style Poms and owned a red sable Pomeranian which she named “Windsor’s Marco” who was reported to weigh only 12 lb When she first exhibited Marco in 1891, it caused the smaller-type Pomeranian to become immediately popular and breeders began selecting only the smaller specimens for breeding.

.

.

During the lifetime of Queen Victoria, the size of the Pomeranian breed was reported to have decreased by 50%. She worked to improve and promote the Pomeranian breed by importing smaller Pomeranians of different colors from various European countries to add to her breeding program.

Pomeranians today are small lap dogs but that was not always the case. Poms, were sled dogs and herded larger animals. Originally, Pom’s came in all white and weighed an average of 30 pounds. It wasn’t until the 19th century, when they were bred down to become a companion dog. The gene for the bigger Poms is still present in the breed today. Some litters will get a “throwback” Pom, a dog resembling their larger ancestors in both size and behavior.

.

.

Poms have rubbed shoulders with some of history’s greatest creative minds. Mozart dedicated one of his finished arias to his pet Pomeranian, Pimperl. Frédéric Chopin, inspired by his friend’s pet Pomeranian chasing his tail, wrote the song “Waltz of the Little Dogs” and Michelangelo pet Pom was sitting below watching as he painted the Sistine Chapel.

.

.

Many breeds of dogs come in only a few colors and combinations. Pomeranians on the other hand have 23 color combinations that are accepted by the American Kennel Club. These colors include beaver, sable, chocolate, black, orange, and white in addition to a number of combinations of those colors.

.

.

Blue Pomeranians are not classified as such because of the color of their fur. Instead, a blue Pomeranian is distinguished by the color of his nose.

The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire,…

The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire, a county in northern England. In the mid-19th century, workers from Scotland came to Yorkshire in search of work and brought with them several different varieties of small Scottish terriers.

.

.

Originally it was three (3) dogs, bred from Scotch terriers (note: meaning dogs from Scotland, not today’s Scottish terriers) by chance that the eventual creation of the “Yorkshire Terrier” was done by these same Scottish workers, working in the cotton mills. This may sound strange as it wasn’t someone dedicating time and effort to shape and influence the breed but regular workers and the right breeds of dogs in the factories. The name Yorkshire Terrier was given to them on account of their being improved so much in Yorkshire, England that the name stuck.

.

.

Not long after the Yorkshire Terrier was introduced into North America. In 1885 the first Yorkshire Terrier was registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) Yorkies were a popular pet and show dog in both America and England. The creation of the Yorkie was heavily influenced and grew during the Victorian era and as Americans embraced Victorian customs, so too did they embrace the Yorkshire Terrier.

.

.

The breed’s popularity dipped in the 1940s, when the percentage of small breed dogs registered fell to an all-time low of 18% of total registrations. Smoky, a Yorkshire Terrier and famous war dog from World War II, is credited with beginning a renewal of interest in the breed. The American Kennel Club ranked the Yorkshire Terrier as the 6th most popular pure-breed in the United States of America in 2012 and 2013.

The different breeds of dogs that served different purposes in our lives was the inspiration behind this quote. Not every breed is the perfect one but every dog has a special thing about them.

Share that special quality about your dog and what it is to you.
