Cookie Crisp (not sold on that name, but we're keeping the cereal theme) is a typically exuberant puppy. Booberry is not happy with this new puppy.

Cookie Crisp (or other name dog ends up with) is super cute.

What kind of dog is it? How big will they get?

Cookie Crisp is a Blue Merle Shetland Shepherd, or Sheltie. We expect him to get between 20-30 lbs (9-13 kg). Same as Booberry, but that has not endeared the puppy to him.

Today is Mookie's birthday. She is 1 year old today. :party:

I think she's pretty excited about it.

I have half of Cookie Crisp's crate blocked off so he won't be tempted to poop in a corner and get away from it, which means he wasn't able to get away from it last night. He either didn't make enough noise to wake me or just didn't try to. So, he needed a bath today.

But that's not the reason I'm posting. A short story in pictures:

Little JoJo is a food gobbler, which gives her hiccups that threaten to make her kibble come back up. My solution is to put a dog toy in the middle of her food dish and that slows her right down. Essentially, I'm taking advantage of her not figuring out she can just pick up the toy and throw it out of the bowl.

Who among you has a dog smart enough to think of that?

We had the same issue with Flossie when she was young. She ate so goddamn fast she'd barf not long after eating a meal, which consisted of part kibble and part wet food. The solution was stuffing a bunch of the kibble into one of those Kong toys. The time it took her to extract the food from the Kong stopped the barfing, and she actually seemed to enjoy the process.

PupetteF did that too. We got PupetteF a challenge bowl, which didn't slow her down much but slowed her down just enough to keep her from immediately horking the food back up. She still uses the challenge bowl even though it's not very challenging any longer and she still scarfs down her food.

Our neighbors got a pug puppy last year. She is about a year and some change now, and I get to see her out walking in the neighborhood. She didn't get to meet a lot of people because of the pandemic, so now when I see her I always stop and give her some attention to help her get comfortable with other people. She is. so. goddamn. cute. She knows me, but I always offer her my hand to sniff, which she does for about a half second before going apeshit. She is a crazy little wigglebut, and gets so excited that she binds me up in her leash running around in circles. We are sticking with adopting senior dogs from here on out, but it's nice to play with a puppy for a few minutes.

SOMEONE should take responsibility for explaining Daylight Saving Time to dogs. You know how they explain things on children's shows, where they go on a little field trip to a lab or something and have a scientist or other expert explain the whys and hows of whatever it is?

I'm just not sure who. Congress?

NIST is just right nearby here. Maybe we drive out there with Ms. Ruthie and just buttonhole someone who can provide their justification for why all of a sudden, she has to wait a whole nother hour for her dinner.

I was just thinking about Ruthie and wondering how she's doing.

It figures her people are starving her. Poor Ruthie.

Apart from the starvation, Ruthie is doing really well. She's wicked smart, and acclimated to her routine and her house in the first couple weeks or so. She's got all her different napping spots mapped out throughout the house, knows (or USED TO know) her schedule, and is good with people who come over.

She loves everyone, but she is hopelessly in love with Matlock. She's constantly making moony eyes :lovey: at him and climbing on his lap to slobber all over his face.

Mabel brought her over a whole ton of toys for her, including some with REALLY LOUD SQUEAKERS, so she can make a huge scary ruckus whenever she wants attention. Which is a lot. And she talks a lot, too. Makes these grumbling sounds and also says AROO at us. And we have to have big Battle Royales every day, with tug of war and crazy zoomies where you just have to plaster yourself up against a wall and wait for it to be over.

She is such a good girl, and we love her very much.

Here I was reading Mr. Pea's post, and thinking to myself, Tuco seems not to have noticed much. Immediately thereafter, at 4:30 (5:30 in the Before Time), he starts angrily snorting at me that dinner is late. Clocks, schmocks.

Speaking of whom, the Li'l Puppet took this great optical illusion:



What's illusive about it? Compare and contrast.

We ease in to a DST-adjusted dinner time, with escalating delay increments over a week or more. The first 15 minute delay is the worst.

Obviously this is not done in the spring.

Cookie Crisp's schedule is not stable enough to be affected by DST.

When my daughter gets water, Booberry always tries to get an ice cube, and now Cookie Crisp has learned about them, too.

Can I give you a call bark? DogPhone lets pets ring their owners | Dogs | The Guardian

Is it April fools' day? This doesn't seem very well thought out ... or is just wishful thinking ...

Quote:
The DogPhone underwent a number of iterations to ensure it had the right level of sensitivity towards movement – these were tested over 16 days by Hirskyj-Douglas and her nine-year-old black labrador, Zack.

A diary detailing the calls between owner and pet suggests the latter did not always seem to know what he was doing – despite having been shown five times how the system worked.

“Dog rang me but was not interested in our call instead was checking for things in his bed,” Hirskyj-Douglas noted during the testing of one iteration.

Another entry reveals the potential pitfalls of the DogPhone. “Dog walking around wagging and then laying down. I was in a meeting so had to hang up quickly,” one record reveals.

The team say that many of the calls made by Zack – who was left alone for about eight hours during testing days – appear to have been accidents although they caution that may simply be the human perspective. “For example, when the dog triggered the system with their butt, this could have been deliberate and the dog’s unique way of triggering an interaction,” they write.
I think this is what the consequence of pet-tech is more likely to be ...
Quote:
Hirskyj-Douglas said the technology could bring benefits to pets, in particular dogs who struggle with being separated from their owners – although she admitted the device had actually caused her some anxiety.

The owner of Hunger4Words could probably make a good case for this to become a thing.

I don't outright remember real people names. Hunger4Words is about a dog named Stella and her friend who is a speech pathologist. It's one of my most favorite things in this world.
