    Bark Collars?

    Hello - just need some advice about barking dogs. Our mini-dachshunds, Marla and Ziggy, are big barkers. Part of it is we live in the middle of town and they love to "chase" and bark at cars. But recently we've had to start putting Marla on a long chain due to her finding ways into the sheep pen. It has happened 3 times and the sheep have gotten bit and cut from her dogged determination to chase and bite them. However, now she barks and barks in a higher pitched "voice". We've done just about everything to make her hush but so far, nothing works. And yes, we've reinforced the sheep pen many times but she finds a way in regardless. How do you all feel about those collars that make dogs not bark? If you think they are ok, have any of you used them? What brand? Thanks. steph

Instead of criticizing tea parties, the NAACP would be better served denouncing the racist comments made by a member of the New Black Panther Party and its voter intimidation outside a Philadelphia polling place in the last presidential election. As a frequent speaker at tea party rallies around the country, I can assure the NAACP that the tea party movement's concerns are about President Obama's policies and not his race. . . . ."

  4. I was shocked that you were called on comments you made . . .I think that is not cool. I'd never diss you or Neil. And I'll put up my pink dukes against anyone who does. :up: Sorry for the misunderstanding . . .it was late, I was under the influence of buckets of nacho cheese and chili and tortilla chips. Those fumes can kill ya!:eek: (Worked in the 4-H concession stand at the bullriding event last night). Hey, Merle is playing with Kris Kristofferson locally . . .. I'm hoping to snag some tickets! Wanna come along?:D (p.s. Merle lives locally by the way - I've run into him twice out in the community and I'll have you know I didn't drool or make a fool of myself at all).:coollook:

    Why do people ask that??:rolleyes: "Does your dog bite?". Maybe not yet but . . . . he's an animal and they are unpredictable and yes, he may bite. It's one of those "Here's Your Sign" situations . . . . :coollook:
  18. I have a nurse friend who has breast cancer and is undergoing treatment . .. .she lost all her hair and wears these gorgeous scarves. She looks beautiful! I think I'm like Tweety . . . I can't think of anything I'd do differently because I'm a wacko born-again right wing Christian and what the heck do I care about anyone's judgment? :smokin:

    They work well as an alarm system - there have been a lot of burgleries lately and the talk on the local newspaper comments section is that a dog, any sized dog, helps. Barking is a good deterrant. :up:

    xtxrn - that's very sad. Poor doggy. But, I must voice my opinion that simply having dogs outside is not a crime. (I know you guys mostly mean people who tie dogs to tires, etc). Here in the country, most dogs are outside quite a bit of the time. We have a big yard and our two wienie dogs and the lab love it. The two little ones run almost the entire day. There is a lot of shade out there, plus water. The first thing they want to do when they wake up in the morning is hit the yard. Farmers' dogs are outside too - helping them on the ranch, riding with them in the pickup or on the 4-wheeler. Rounding up cattle or sheep. It's a fun life. :up: Don't knock it till you try it . . .(channeling a childhood saying).

    You need sugar for those choke cherries we've been picking too . . . .:eek: Talk about T A R T :eek: I'll join you behind that couch - I like my iced tea without sugar and just a touch of fresh lemon. And my family is from the south so I'm very familiar with sweet tea. We buy either the generic brand of Crystal Light or Hawaiian Punch or Wylers . . .all with little to no sugar. In fact I'm on my 2nd glass of punch right now. I'm not afraid of artificial sweetners! :D

    We are not telling my son that. He's at the fair by the way - taking care of his lamb. I'm sure his soft-hearted father will let him play that infernal goldfish bowl game again . . . :uhoh3: These fish were made to die . . . seriously. Good luck with the pups. :D

    Random thought . . . . . why did my son get up early and notice that the goldfish he won at the fair yesterday had a dirty bowl and he needed to clean it so he put goldfish in a baggie with some of the water from the bowl and twisted it shut only to have the weight of the water open the baggie and said fish went down the bathroom sink drain. . .. . :confused:
