Welcome to Crazy for Dogs!

Sirius of the Week

Grendel is a standard long-haired dachshund. His enormous amount of dignity has always made him seem a little aloof and stand-offish, but he's still an amiable dog for the most part. He's becoming a bit of a Grumpy Old Man as he ages :-)

He *LOVES* to shred things -- toys, clothes, paper products of all sorts, anything he can get his teeth on. Squeaky dog toys last about 30 seconds with him. The only toy he's never been able to destroy is a Booda Bone, which is essentially just a hunk of thick rope with a knot at either end.

Previous Siriuses... If your dog has already been a star of the week, feel free to send *NEW* pictures to share. We'd be happy to put them on the homepage for others to enjoy.

When dogs aren't sleeping, destroying toys, or hanging out, what is something else they might do? Indeed, why do dogs chase cats?"


Have you ever wondered how much dogs sleep?


Beware of Internet Puppy Scams: Unfortunately, unscrupulous people have been sending emails offering to sell pedigree puppies (bulldogs, pugs, and others). Similar phony websites are also on the web. These emails and websites are fake. They are designed to cheat you out of your money either by never sending you the puppy or by sending you a different dog from what you paid for. Your best bet: If you want a purebred, contact a local breed-specific rescue group. Or if you just want a new best friend, save a life from your local animal pound.

Some Dog Facts

  • Of the over 100 breeds recognized by the AKC, only 8 originate in the United States.
  • The Samoyed originated on the Artic Steppes of Siberia and were bred to be sled dogs and herders of reindeer
  • The most popular signal a dog uses for play is the "play-bow", in which the dog lowers its front half, while keeping its rear end high in the air.
  • "Setter" = A type of dog that has long hair and that freezes when it spots game, only moving when commanded to flush out the game.
  • Dogs need about half the protein that cats do, so do not feed cat food to a dog.
  • At about three weeks a puppy learns how to lap liquid. They have to learn it for themselves -- lapping cannot be taught.
  • "Canines" = Pointed molars in the upper and in the lower jaws.
  • "Dew-claw" = An extra toe on the inside of the leg that is often, but not always, removed.
