- Producer26/11/2016Do You Underestimate Your Dog?I have a lot to say about dogs. Which is highly curious since the reason I share my life with a dog is precisely because of the wordless communication that fills my introverted soul. I love Zanzi. So much so, I had to write a book about our...

Comments25/11/2016 #3 Loribeth PiersonLove the shares about our 4 legged furbabies. My 80lb. Aussie does not know he's a dog. Lol. He is so clever and remembers my actions. @Deb Helfrich mine will do the same when I don't put his bandana on. He knows and will go over and jump on his chair. Then he gives me the stink eye look. Like I can not believe you are leaving this house without me. They are truly smart and really are a girls-best-friend! Thanks for the share @Laurent Boscherini25/11/2016 #1 Deb HelfrichGreat share, @Laurent Boscherini. I can prove Zanzi has episodic memory in many ways. She knows when I do specific actions - and there are a few of them - that I intend to go out by myself. She often goes to her crate just when I put my phone into my purse, for example. I never trained her in any way, it is just a part of the process of me leaving and she noticed this action occurs and made the association herself. It also helps that I never take her for a walk with my phone or purse - her walks are for her.
I can also prove the length of her memory when I 'cook' her food before we walk - she pulls me back home after she completes the point of the walk. She knows dinner is waiting. If dinner is not waiting, she will want to linger on the walk.
- Producer24/11/2016Lessons from the Traveling Dog As I attempted to open the front door this morning. I quickly realized that Otis, the neighbor’s bulldog, had decided to sleep in front of it. Otis occasionally visits because he likes the biscuits we give him. Dogs are matter-of-fact creatures....
Comments26/11/2016 #8 Lisa GallagherHi @RAY stasieczko, nice buzz! I love this quote of yours, “When you stop looking for absolutes, you discover the excitement of the unknown” I think I've unknowingly lived by that motto most of my life... maybe I was a dog in my past life ;-) And, the scaredy cat part, funny!26/11/2016 #7 Elizabeth BaileyEnjoyed that Ray, so true, yet it's funny how it is a trait we are more likely to see in others than recognise in ourselves. I guess the more comfy we are the more we feel we have something to lose, not realising we are losing out anyway. Heave-ho out of the box I climb again.24/11/2016 #3 Kevin PashukDogs are wonderful muses, even if they belong to your neighbour. Enjoyed the post Ray. While reading it, a quote by C.S. Lewis came to mind. In it, he defines. the 'Satisfied Imagination' as 'Looking onng enough nd looking freshly at what is familiar'. Sometimes we don't have to wander like Otis, but look around us with new eyes.24/11/2016 #1 Deb Helfrich"Otis was just living in the now on a quest to learn what can come." Highly engaging buzz, @RAY stasieczko! I am a fan of all the lessons that dogs can teach. And I regard beBee as my neighborhood and I LOVE strolling around, alert to what is actually present, and I can attest that there is joy and excitement to be found in interacting with people around the globe, sharing the stuff that fuels their own interest.
" If leaders and teams took time to simply search for the unknown, they would more often than not be rewarded by finding what others missed by being static in their search." I boldly believe it is simply as easy as a switch to bringing in outside perspectives early and often.

My latest photo on www.flickr.com/photos/kwpashuk
This is my parent's dog Tasha, who has developed a finely tuned skill at barking at nothing in particular. I caught her in a quiet moment.
When they got her after retirement, all of us kids thought they were nuts. Tasha has been a great companion and has kept them moving well into their late 80's.

Comments13/10/2016 #5 Deb HelfrichThey all have their own preferences. My first dog had 1 stuffed animal her whole life, took it everywhere. My current dog ended up with the exact same look as Rudy and a little stuffing sticking out of her mouth when I gave her a stuffed animal. Keep the pictures coming!

Comments03/10/2016 #12 Laura Rodríguez MartínGracias Flavia, Ojalá todo el mundo se preocupara como tú y reaccionara de la misma manera.
Yo cuando encuentro perretes, los acerco directamente al veterinario para que avisen al dueño, y también ocurre que los contactos de los dueños están desfasados. Tan importante como ponerles chip es asegurarnos que tienen el teléfono y la dirección correcta.
Saludos.03/10/2016 #11 Flavia Toro Rodriguez#7 Yo tampoco sabía a donde llamar, así que probé. La verdad es que esto fue así porque es una ciudad grande y tienen un equipo que se dedica a esto y una red de veterinarias colaboradoras.
En la mayoría de las ciudades lo que hacen es avisar a la policía que los recoge y los lleva a la perrera.03/10/2016 #10 Flavia Toro Rodriguez#9 Totalmente cierto. Me contó la veterinaria que hace tiempo había encontrado a uno y la respuesta del dueño al devolvérselo fue que "No pasa nada, ya volvería".
Hay que ser muy conscientes de que no son juguetes, es una responsabilidad duradera, no puedes olvidarte en cuanto pasa el capricho.03/10/2016 #9 Javier beBee@Flavia Toro Rodriguez a los que había que enviar a la perrera es a muchos dueños de perros que se compran un perrito y luego pasan de ellos , o lo que es peor, los abandonan. Sin duda, cuando tienes un animal hay que se consciente de que lleva mucho trabajo y durante muchoooo tiempo.03/10/2016 #7 Isabel Díaz DuránMe gusta la gente como tú Flavia, que no mira para otro lado!! Yo encontré una vez un perro abandonado, cruce de pastor alemán , desafortunadamente no tenía chip y se veía muy delgado y algo desnutrido, no sabía que se podía llamar al 112, en mi caso llamé a una protectora, entre la chica y yo intentamos cogerlo pero no hubo manera, era agresivo yo creo que porque tenía miedo , finalmente vino el lacero de la perrera y se lo llevó .Intenté buscarle acogida por redes sociales porque yo no podía quedarmelo tengo 3 perros y uno más no es posible. Me alegra que en tu caso haya habido un final feliz. Buen día Flavia!!!!
Comments10/10/2016 #4 Phil FriedmanThanks, Kim. Dogs respond not only to love and affection, but with love and affection. Many animal behavior studies support that. Puppies fed by one group of people and played with by another, will always give preferential attention to those who... play with them. Even brain physiology studies indicate enhanced activity in those portions of the brain considered pleasure centers, when a human with a close relationship comes into the room, or even more so returns home after an absence. Cheers!

Comments09/10/2016 #1 Deb HelfrichClosets are a moving dog's best friends. My girls learn about packing really young. I hope the lobby situation gets sorted out, as being picked up for each exit and entry will eventually get to a be a big pain. I had to carry Zanzi around for two months last summer.... Happy House Warming!
