We bought Dani a new collar today, to stop the confusion of her being a boy (blue collar, boy sounding name). I think she loves it with that pose.

While we're in Oz, our dear old furry friend Murphy is being looked after in our home in the UK by a pet sitter. There's a church yard nearby that Murph absolutely loves - he might be thinking he'll find a bone in there? You're not supposed to take dogs in there, but when the gate's open we've been known to give in to his insistence that we walk THROUGH the church yard, not around it. If the gate's closed, he gets a cob on.

Our pet sitter sent us this photo today, taken on Murphy's morning walk

Beautiful dog.

Looks like he’s saying ‘Does that apply to me?’

Hi, you can airdrop pics from your phone to your macbook.

Click reply, and along the top you'll see a paperclip icon. This opens a file upload box, and you can select the photo file there and click upload!

I look forward to seeing your dog.

I feel like he's saying "A dog? What's a dog? Am I a dog?"

Her poos are fine, her behavior hasn't changed, nothing has changed with regards to lifestyle/behavior/habits etc.

It's just the sudden nature of the change that slightly worries me. One side of me says she is being the smart breed she is and is just being resourceful - saving half of both her meals for after her long run and long dog park play session.

Another side is just wondering if something might be wrong with her?

Any of you dog owners experienced/witnessed this?

Its normal for a dog to wolf down its food in about one minute. For your dog to change her behaviour is a cause for a little concern. I would have a word with your vet and get her stomach looked at. It may be just an age thing ,she is getting too much food?.. or it could be a problem in her intestines,something she has swallowed

Yeah, I was used to the wolfing it down and then her pestering for more, which she never got! She definitely doesn't have too much, as I am very particular, I weigh her weekly and adjust accordingly for daily exercise levels etc, and she's always been 50lbs.

We recently got back from thanksgiving at the GF's parent's house, and there she did pinch her parents dog food (they have wet food due to old age and having a lack of teeth), so I was thinking maybe she was holding out for that kind of food as she got a taste for it!

She's only 1 yr and 2 months, so shouldn't be an age thing. She's a sniffer and scavenger for sure, so she may have found/ate something in the big yard at my GF's parents!

I think I'll give her a couple of days to see, as everything else does seem fine, even her pooping isn't a cause for concern!

This is Honey, on the day that she adopted us.

I arrived at my house in Portugal to be told that a dog had been roaming around for the previous 3 weeks or more, but would run away when my wife called it. Over the next week or so, I was "observed"" from a distance whilst working outside - and each day she came a little closer. Finally, our visitor decided she might stay - and has been with us since. She was just over a year old, but very traumatised - but two years later, she is part of the family - along with her "sister" who arrived in a similar way.

How anyone can abandon such lovely creatures is beyond me.

Honey is very cute! The furry face has a look of wisdom about it - definitely looks the street wise dog she is!

I'm glad you rescued her and her sister. always warms my heart when people rescue pets

She's a Podengo pequeno, clever and robust. She runs like a greyhound, jumps like a rabbit and is as smart as a bee - when she's not asleep! Sadly, she seems to have had a hard life early on, so won't chase a ball or a stick and rarely plays. But the arrival of her "sister" a year ago turned things around and they are now inseparable. The change is beautiful to see.

Never heard of that breed before, but sounds very cool and smart!

That sucks that she had a hard life early on, but it's great that having a canine sibling is helping her out a lot I'm surprised it worked out so well, as female dogs living together often causes big issues!
