    Default Oh No-Brittany Dog Rescue

    Work friend talked to someone in Wytheville who fosters Brittany Spaniels.
    Oh no.
    Crap. That's only an hour away.

    You get the general idea, COTH enablers.

    I'll let DH lull himself into complasiantsy (sp?????????-geez I need more coffee) for awhile before I broach the subject of a Brit.

    3 dog - could you please PM me the info? Our oldest Britt most likely will go this fall and that leaves one. Of course no one can have just one Britt ;-) I would love to see what they have and keep it in mind.

    Thanks!

    *sits up and blinks after passing out from cute overload* Darn you S1969!

    My little wild child foundling Brittany is coming along. He's now in the fenced yard getting along with all the other dogs. He wears a collar and walks on a leash. And last night he was even persuaded to come into the house for a few minutes!

    I contacted both the rescues in my "What do Brittanies hunt?" thread. Both had lots of dogs available!

    Oh, forgot to mention - Jamie has the most horse sense of any dog I've ever seen. Won my grey QH who has to be kept alone because he hates other animals right over the second day.

    My LGD cross still mashes him into the ground with his paws but Jamie accepts it with good grace. The girl dogs all lurve him.

    And the cats just walked right up to him and gave him nose kisses.

    If all Brittanies are like Jamie I can't imagine why they're not like corgis and JRTs and a fixture at every horse barn.

    Y'know. Not that I'm trying to enable you or anything.

    Yes...notice how I grabbed the camera instead of scolding him? Obviously we've slacked on the whole "discipline" thing with this one.....he's a 3rd child though. We're more like grandparents now.

    My boys have good horse sense, I think. Although the puppy (now about 17 months old) would "travel" if not supervised, so he's not really allowed out off leash around the barn. (He gets plenty of off leash runs, but I like to keep a closer eye on him in case he sees a deer, turkey, etc.) But my older guy is allowed free range of the farm and is very smart around the horses. He basically stays out out of the paddock unless they are not around and is very respectful of their size.

    And 2 years ago:

    She is 13 years old now, hard of hearing, but still the best dog ever.

    Great, this is Jacky. He is 14 this year, arthritic, yet still full of life. He is my DH's heart & soul. We lost his littermate last Mother's Day (2010). He is a great dog, loves to hunt & is a great family dog.

    My JRT:
    There's a problem with being on the dining room table? Really? But that's where the cookies are....

    There's a problem with being in the dishwasher? Really? I"m helping clean up the crumbs.

    There's a problem being in the car? Really? But that's where the leftover burgers and fries are.

    I"m a problem no matter where I am? Really? But I'm a JRT. You must understand, y'know. I'm JUST SAYIN'

    Haha, I hadn't even noticed. We live in a log cabin so everything is that color!!!

    That particular night he was on the table because there was cat food on the counter (trying to keep it where he couldn't eat it)

    But he often gets on the table just to look out the window (the best spot in the house!)
