America

10 Sep

Wow. I’ve been gone A LONG TIME. Sorry about that. A lot of things changed since then. For one, I moved to America. I was born and raised in Hungary, and never even set foot in the Land of the Free, so this is a big change for me. And what I wanted to write about today is my experience dog-wise.

The first thing I noticed is that almost everyone has a dog. Mostly small ones, but size here doesn’t matter. What matters, is that people who keep dogs here actually love their dogs more than they love themselves. This is such a refreshing thing to see. Happy dogs. Not just happy because someone loves them, but happy because that someone actually loves herself. In most places people keep animals to fill some kind of hole in their hearts. They keep pets, because their not satisfied with themselves, and they’re hoping, that a dog, or cat, or hamster will make them love themselves. Well, guess what. They don’t do that. They’re not made for that.

California is the first place where I saw, that people make themselves happy before they could make a little baby creature happy. I applaud you, people who identify themselves with this! This is the most noble and mature thing you can do, and nothing makes me happier than seeing these pairs.

You see, dogs look up to an owner who is the ultimate alpha dog. Like Cesar Milan. People who are healthy and happy, and know how to keep themselves that way. People who know what they want, and instead of whining, actually get those things. These are the happy, healthy people. The people dogs look up to. If you’re not sure of yourself, if you don’t have a strict schedule, or you’re self conscious, don’t get a dog just to change yourself. If you need a dog to change, then the dog won’t ever be able to change you. Remember that. I fell into that trap.

If you need a dog to change, than a dog won’t ever be able to change you.

What do you look for in a dog? Manners, potty trained, maybe some cool tricks, sleep through the night, be able to walk without a leash, etc… And of course, when you get the 10 week old fluffball, these things are already typed in his genes. As they were typed into yours too. No. It doesn’t work this way. A dog like this needs work. Hard work. So of course, you look at people with big dogs, dogs who wake up their owners at the morning and stuff, and you think ‘I need a dog to build me a routine’. Guess what. A dog does not know what a routine is. YOU have to tech it to him. And guess what. You don’t know what a routine is either.

A dog can change you. But first, you need manners, you need to be potty trained, you need to know some cool tricks, and you need to live according to a strict schedule. Like kids, dogs look up to those, who know all the things that they’re teaching them.

So before you buy a dog, think about who you are. Your goals. Schedule. Friends. Friday nights. Because guess what. A dog changes EVERYTHING.

The Biggest and Smallest Dog in the World

5 Jan

On february 15th 2010 Giant George broke the Guinness Record for being the tallest dog in the world! George i a blue Great Dane He is three-quarter of an inch taller than the second tallest dog, Titan. But sadly they found a taller dog named Zeus who’s an inch taller than George.

George was born on November 17th, 2005. His owner is David Nasser, who bought the dog wen he was 7 weeks old. He currently lives in Tucson, Arizona.

His life at home is more than fantastic! He sleeps in a queen-sized bed, and rides around in the neighborhood in a golf court. When he was traveling to Chicago for his 2010 appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show George was given a row of three seat all to him self. During the flight George, his owner and his wife Christine had to sit in the bulkhead, because George didn’t fit in the first class!

Now for Boo Boo the smallest living dog. Boo Boo is a long-haired Chihuahua, who’s height is not more than 4 inch, and she weighs 2 pounds! She lives in Raceland, Ky., with her owner, Lana Elswick. Dow at the photos, you can check out a video about Boo Boo. I couldn’t put the video here, so I just attached a link. Sorry…

Lapdogs

2 May

Lapdog are the smallest dog breeds in history (I think… 🙂 ) There are a lot of lapdogs in the world, but now I’m only going to write about 3.

1. The Chihuahua:

The Chihuahua is one of the smallest lapdog there is. The Chihuahuas are “beloved” by Mexicans. They’re famous because of there pointy ears, high pitched bark, and there size. They’re good for… nothing :/ . My opinion about the Chihuahua is… (0-10) 3-4. But what really matters is yours, so let me know ok?

2. The Pug:

Pugs are by far the largest lapdogs there is. Although, when they’re pups, they fit in a mug! Pugs are famous for there wrinkles black face, curly tail, and snorting noise.

There are some lapdogs who no longer live with us. 😦 Those dogs were very rare dogs in the 1800’s. For example, the Russian and the Mexican Lapdogs. I’m gonna say just a few words about the Mexican Lapdog: It was the tiniest lapdog on earth, it was the size of a golden hamster! 😀 (no wonder they’re extinct, huh? 😛 ). These pets can be seen in the British Museum. In fact, if the location of these animals weren’t so proving, then these pets would be classed with the Mermaids, Flying Serpents, and the Tartar Lamb as an admirable example of clever workmanship! 🙂

And finally 3. The Yorkshire Terrier:

As I said in my post, I don’t really like them. Hate is a strong word, they’re cute, but to live with them… not so much :/ . There fur can be long enough to reach the floor (I just call it the “mop dog” 🙂 ) If it doesn’t reach the ground, then they have a very cute short curly colorful fur. By colorful, I mean black, brown, and different kinds of brown, and sometimes grey. They have very soft, silky like fur. They are very small dogs, who live well with other dogs… you can read more in my Yorkie post…

So to code this post, lets add things up: Lapdogs are the smallest dogs, and the reason they call them “Lapdogs” is that they fit perfectly in a persons lap. They are great for “starter families” I mean families with babies, I mean really babies, or families with future babies. The reason why I’m supporting this is because these dogs are very gentle and ind when they are small, and when they’re big too, and they don’t need much space, in fact, if you have a small garden, you only have to take them out like three times a week! So there very easy to train, and keep in your house, and they don’t bring lots of problems…

So, these are the lapdogs…

A really unique Chihuahua 🙂 Cute…

Lapdogs can be put into clothes, but THAT I don’t support… Look at it’s face… Does it look like it’s happy in it’s clothes??? 😦

This. Is. Cute. 🙂

The “Mop Dog”… we meet again… 😀

 

And now…

The most beautiful and cute dogs in the world…

To be honest, I don’t know what breed it is, I don’t know if it will stay a Lapdog, but it is a Lapdog now, that’s for sure:

 

 

Bye… 😉

The Chihuahua + The Funniest Dog in the World!!! :D

23 Sep

First of all the Chihuahua is not only the shame of little dogs, but the shame of all dog kinds (no offense) 🙂 . It is one of the smallest dogs in history, most often 15-23 centimeters tall, and it is very-very light like 1-3 kilograms! 😀

The Chihuahua can be an aggresive dog really fast if you don’t treat it just perfectly. But if you do, it will be a very loyal, and be very attached to their masters. The Chihuahua is a very adventurous dog, they are “originaly” brave, cheerful and agile. They may be a little hard to train, but they are intelligent.

They prefer to listen to proper, firm but gentle training methods the most. The Chihuahuas aren’t that different from bigger dogs, and that means don’t let it do anything you wouldn’t alow to bigger dogs (such as jumping on other people, or running around in the house at night).

The Chihuahuas are perfect dogs for an apartment. They are really sensitive to cold weather, which pretty much explains why people put ridiculous clothes on them. Despite of the Chihuahua’s size, they need the same space, which means say goodbye to your “Let’s lock the dog in the closet for the night” plans, ’cause that’s not gonna work. 😀

Well… I guess that’s almost it, but I planned you a little “after-party” below! Have fun! 😀

And don’t forget to comment, and look at the pictures below! Bye! 😉

(Ps.: The cause of me not putting up pictures of grown-up Chihuahuas, is because thaey are so darn… not pretty… 🙂 )

The Yorkshire Terrier

4 Sep

Hello to all! Today I’m going to talk about the Yorkshire Terrier, the shame of all Terriers. There is the Fox Terrier,

The Airedale Terrier,

The Norfolk Terrier,

The Australian Terrier,

and none of them is as hideous as the Yorkshire! 🙂 I mean, it is small, it has long hair, and most often, it has clothes, and rubber rings with bows!!! Terrible! 😀 The Yorkshire Terrier is best at the job: floorcloth! 🙂 But all jokes aside, the Yorkshire is a really active, playful doggie, and loves it if you take a walk in you purse, which is just a waste of time, cause what is a walk for, if not walking!!? 🙂

So, the Yorkshire is about 15-17 centimeters high, and it weighs about 3.2 kilograms. Pretty portable huh? 😀 The Yorkshire Terrier is like a stuffed animal-sized dog (if you can call it that 🙂 ) The cause of the bow-thing, is that the top of its head is flat, and the bow make more dog-like! Its ears are like two half “D”-s upside down. It’s actually a pretty funny dog!

The Yorkie if you don’t treat it well, can be really aggressive, and the it can bite! They can get diseases fast, so give it a shot, and there will be a smaller possibility that it will get it. The Yorkie is good in an apartment, and does well in a smaller yard. Now, the clothes thing is because of it being sensitive to cold, so people put those ridiculous rags on the poor thing!

The Yorkshire Terriers are active doggies, who needs daily walks, and not in your purse! If you don’t take it out every day, it will behave unusual at times.

I got pretty tired of writing about the Yorkshire Terrier, because of the fact that I hate it, so I think I’m going to stop for today! Bye! 😉

Why the “Frenchie” is one of the most adorable dogs

25 Aug

Sorry again, for not writing, I guess I just really lost track of time. Today I’m going to write about the French Bulldog. My brother really wants me t have one, and I don’t blame him, it’s really an adorable doggie. It’s small, it’s lovable, and the way she/he can look at you… your hear will melt. 🙂 It’s a cuddly cute dog, you’ll just love! It’s height, is 30-31 cm, and it’s weight is 11-13 kg. This dog is really not aggressive, it’s easy to transport, it’s not suggested to be a guard dog (it’s really not a guard dog type), it’s not a good idea to keep it as a shepherd dog, ’cause you’ll be really disappointed in it him(/her), you will not have problems with taking it out, and it automatically starts barking like a robot :), it’s social life in a 0-10 scale, I’d say… 5, and finally, it’s extremely suitable for children. It’s coat is sort, but you still have to groom her/him minimum once in a week. The grooming works like this: It’s pretty easy, you get a brush that is strong enough to take out the dead hair, but sooth enough to not hurt your dog. The next step, is to check, and clean out the little wrinkles on it’s muzzle. And voila! You made your self a sparkly-clean doggie! It’s colors are brindle, pied, fawn, black, or maybe drab. In pied, it’s usually white and/or brindle patches. The French Bulldog also known as the Frenchie, easily catches different kinds of sicknesses, allergies, so you must take it to the animal-doctor, and ask for the doctor to give a graft to your loving doggie. Well, I guess I told you everything I know about the Frenchie, so there’s one thing left: Check out the pictures below, and leave a comment, before you leave! 😉

Well known facts about the Bichon Frise

20 Aug

First of all the name “Bichon Frise” always reminds me of fries, and I get hungry. Second of all, I don’t actually like this dog because of it’s large fur, and because it is very small, so I’m going to say the “Well known facts about the Bichon Frise” quickly :). I think I’m going to start with the bad news, so then you will cheer yourself up with the good ones.

The Bichon Frise despite of what I said of the Golden Retriever, this is a mildly nervous dog. This is the point were I have to say, I actually don’t know why. The Bichon is not a dominant dog, and responds well to non force-full training, but does not respond to extra training’s, like jumping through hoops, and catching a Frisbee. Thank Goodness, these are the only negative info’s of the Bichon. 🙂

The good news are: It just LOVES to play ball, and to cuddle, it’s really cute as long as you shave him/her 🙂 it’s a cheerful dog, the only thing you need to do, is to teach her/him kindly, but if you don’t, it will go back to being nervous and aggressive. And we don’t want that. I proffer for you to buy him/her a pillow that it can cuddle in when your not there, plus, it LOVES sleeping on pillows! This is the one dog so far on my website that you can take into small houses, and it likes it, it loves it if you have a small garden, but if you don’t, then you must take it out for 6-7 hours/day to a park, or some place like that, for it to stretch it’s legs out, and play ball 😀 or just let him/her run and play by her/his own! The only thing I didn’t tell you, is it’s size, which is like: 23-30 centimeters

I guess I told you everything I can about the Bichon Frise, so I’ll have to say goodbye, thanks for reading, and definitely watch the pictures below 🙂 :
