Mutt Monday: Video of Big Puppy Dog

Just had to share this video of a big puppy dog. So please take one minute and watch this sweet “lap-dog” get a lap. I smiled much bigger after watching. Dog adoption saves a life. Plenty of terrific dogs find homes through dog rescues and animal shelters, but they need help sharing the message of how many great pets are waiting.

You could be the one who gets this lovely loving dog a home. So do it.

Make my day and save a life.

Of course, I am hoping you will share this puppy dog on WordPress, Facebook, etc. until he gets a home. The golden retriever and Labrador mix makes him super great for a family with children.

I believe we can get this puppy a home.

So please pass this on.

I’m not sure why, but despite having a weird schedule, I still use my time to watch cute videos up for adoption. If a photo says a thousand words, a video probably says twice as much, right? Anyway, I am totally smitten by these dogs up for adoption at the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter:

1. Eddie is a 7-month-old Golden Retriever Collie mix.

2. Caroline is an 8-year-old Pomeranian.

3. Alec is a 3-month-old Pekingese.

4. Paris is a 3-year-old Chihuahua.

5. Candy is a 7-year-old Spaniel Terrier mix.

6. Al Capone is a 1-year-old Welsh Corgi Terrier mix.

7. Lucy is a 1-year-old American Bulldog.

Now, remember to spread the word on these dogs before it’s too late! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact:

Keeping Your Dog Safe on Halloween

Save your dog’s life and keep your dog healthy by reading The Iowa Dog Trust blog. I placed the link at the bottom of this post. I subscribe to email updates from Iowa Dog Trust and have enjoyed ever single post from them. I am picky when it comes to what blogs I follow. No one gets a free pass from me.

The Iowa Dog Trust Helping Dog’s and the Humans that Love Them has a great mission. I am thinking of making this nonprofit my canine charity of choice. I want to do this for myself and this Dog Leader Mysteries blog.

How to set up a donation system on WordPress is beyond what I am able to do today because I am with family in a hospital waiting room.

Reading this post I am sharing, I learned something new from Iowa Dog Trust. I have quoted it below.

“Doorbell anxiety is a very common issue among dogs. Almost every dog will bark and become agitated when it hears the doorbell or someone knocking at the door.”

Iowa Dog Trust

Doorbell anxiety?

I had never heard of that. Although I have, on the advice of an excellent dog trainer, conditioned my dog by ringing our doorbell each time I came home. I would ring the bell, unlock the door and call, “Sydney, I’m home.”

“You wouldn’t like it if every time that bell rang somebody weird came to the door,” said Charlie Reinhart, a trainer at Unleashed in Petaluma, California. Charlie must know my neighborhood. Whenever our doorbell rings, it turns out to be somebody I don’t know.

And if I don’t know them, neither does my dog.

Readers of Sydney’s Spot on this blog may remember that Sid picked his own job title. At fourteen pounds of curly-haired poodle mix, Sid’s choice of guard dog seems odd. But he always had his own ideas about what to do. And he does a SCARY big-dog impression along with Punk Rocker rock star vocals.

If you are reading this blog for the first time, Sydney earned a nickname at Petaluma Animal Shelter. They called him Sid Vicious. He bit and chewed on the fingers of both volunteer and shelter staff. Dogs have a sense of fairness so Sydney bit veterinarians and groomers too. And yes, later after we adopted him, he bit us too…but that’s another story.

Back to Halloween. We learned early from other dogs to not let dogs answer the door.

Read Iowa Dog Trust Keeping Your Dog Safe on Halloween and keep your dog inside, away from trick-or-treat visitors.

My doorbell is broken.
