Re: Disrespectful ?

Hi Fred - I'm a long time member of the board, but haven't been here for quite a while. I've worked in rescue for many years and am in the process of trying to start my own group. Chows are my favorite breed, but I don't own one right now. I see getting another dog this way: if your pup made SUCH an...

Re: Sunday, July 19th: NORTHERN CALIFORNIA CHOWFEST 2009!

One of my favorite things about ChowFest is when passers-by stop and ask us what's happening. As soon as you say "We're a chow chow enthusiast group that gathers once a year," it's remarkable the spectrum of responses and the faces out of which the responses come. Most folks really do not understand...

Re: In memorium: Sherre Beisel, Wee Wonders Small Dog Rescue

Thank you Lou, for the lovely tribute. Sherre was a rescuer in the truest sense of the word, and the world is dimmer now that this bright light has gone out. She was a great and helpful friend to Rocket Dog Rescue when we reached out for help with a difficult situation. I wish I had known her bette...

Re: Breeders, puppy mills and testing labs

I personally would like to see larger permit costs (to own,produce, and sell) pets. Lesser amounts for secondary market units to drive their value up and easing their situation. Track all units and make ALL who participate in this problem responsible for the situation they create. Dude.....I was SO...

Re: More Dog Whisperer

I'm with Chowwoman on this. In the wild, dogs understand violence, and I am a firm believer in it as a training method. Please note I said VIOLENCE...not PAIN. When I found Orso on the freeway, the only thing he could do was "shake." He wouldn't sit, stay.... nothing. He was (and is) a food hound, I...

About 15 years ago, I worked at a school in a very wooded area on the San Francisco Peninsula.

Orso is the Italian word for "bear." It seemed way more clever at the time I found him than it does now (so many chows named "Bear!") Valentina (RIP) was saved from execution on Feb 14. Poe was the saddest little guy I'd ever seen, so I named him after the most tragic literary figure I could think o...
