This board goes far and wide

I gave my daughter a hav almost 2 years ago and she called to say that her baby is having loose stools. (Why do they call you when you're eating dinner and want to describe every detail of it?)
She got on the net and started looking through websites trying to figure out what was going on and called me back all upset. She told me that she found this 'forum place' on the net and there was a woman named Leslie who had a dog named Shadow and started telling me the story of Shadow. I stopped her and asked her if she knew who Leslie was. Nope. I told her she's the one who has her dog's sister and is on our puppy list. Small world, huh?
And to go further, this poor girl had a rough week. They had a long drive home from our house after the hurricane. Then my grandkiddo found an old poster that Missy (the hav) absolutely hates. When she sees it, she barks her head off and goes nuts. Since this is the room Missy sleeps in, I told my daughter it's probably best to take it down. She left it up and since it's been up Missy has had the loose stools. My daughter sent me a video of Missy barking at that poster and wow does it drive her crazy. I wonder if that's what's causing the loose stools?
Has anyone had one of their dogs go nuts over an object?

Not enough to have loose stools, but I'm noticing that anytime something different is put on our foyer table Roxie barks till you come tell her it's ok. This seems to be the only room she does this in (probably cause all the other rooms are so messy she can't tell if somethings out of place or not!)

Also, someone I know is looking for a hav and called me just to talk about havs, doggie stuff and asking who we got Roxie from. She starts telling me about the breeder she is talking with (about an older puppy) and it is someone from the forum! And while I don't "know" this person, just from having eavesdropped on their conversations with others I felt like I could tell her she's a really good breeder and that I'd be totally comfortable with a puppy from her. (And I have had to sit on my hands not to type a pm to this person and beg them to let my friend get the puppy.... IWANP (I WANT A NEIGHBOR PUPPY ) Anyway, you're right.... the board does go far and wide... and it makes the world a much smaller place.

Go figure, I've never seen a dog go nuts over an object (other than my son in law).
Phooey, pm that breeder and tell them about your friend!

I am surprised at how small the hav world seems to be. I couldn't believe it originally,but now as havs have grown in popularity I'm still amazed at the hav world still--seemingly small in the scheme of things.

Quincy is pretty nonchalant about new things.....I don't think he notices much as long as I'm there!

Jan,

I was in shock that your daughter didn't already know about the forum!!



When we were in training class with Sissy our trainer said that if they are afraid of something let them be brave.

One of the dogs was afraid of a stuffed animal. So she put a treat 3 ft away and kept getting in closer til she had the treat on the nose of the
stuffed animal. The dog finally took the treat smelled all over the stuffed animal and went on his way. He wasn't afraid anymore.

Maybe she could do something like that with the poster. Bring it down to the dogs level and then hang it back up. If she still is afraid - I would take it down..lololol

Of course, we need pics of little Missy to really get the full picture.


Santa, Sissygirl
& Marie

She knows about the forum and has seen me post to it. She's not on any hav lists other than my puppy list either. Phooey with the treats, trash the poster LOL I have a video of Missy going nuts over the poster but don't know how to share it. It can only be played with Quick Time that I know of.

yes, Henry gets bent out of shape when big boxes or large object are placed in the home temporarily, as though his permission needed to be granted ahead of time.

Anyway, try boiled chicken and rice for a few days. A bland diet.

Scooter freaks out over anything bigger than he is, boxes, bags, laundry baskets, etc. I just keep moving with whatever I have and he runs away. It's really quite funny!

My daughter called and said that Missy is at the vet's office for the day on an iv and antibiotics. The vet said it could be caused by stress and goodness knows she's had enough of that with the long rides to and from here and all the adults worrying about hurricanes.....and that darn poster.
