(Note: We’ve all seen those anti-Pritzker signs in Illinois. It’s not a political message and the title is purely for fun.)

A few weeks ago, Illinois officially named a state rock. Yeah, I said, “Wait, what?”, out loud too when I found out. Lincoln’s official country rock is Dolostone, which sounds like the name of an indie band from the early 2000s. You’ve read the why and how here.

Did you know that only five other states have a official snake?

  • Arizona: Arizona crested-nosed rattlesnake
  • Massachusetts: Gartersnake
  • Ohio: Black Runner of the North
  • Virginia: Eastern garter snake
  • West Virginia: Timber Rattlesnake

According WTTW, seventh grader Gentry Heiple of Carterville Junior High School, is the student behind the initiative to name Illinois’ state reptile. It was the same circumstance to select Illinois state rock, but it involved two students from separate schools.

Why we need a state snake is beyond me. You’re allowed to assume that I don’t care about snakes because I don’t want anything to do with them. But, as mentioned, many states have “official” reptiles, and a few involve snakes. Just like Samuel L. Jackson, I’m sick of snakes.

The official snake of Illinois is the Eastern Milksnake. They live primarily in the upper third of Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

This reptile lives in fields, woods, rocky hillsides and the bottom of rivers. He hides under logs, rocks and planks.

These reptiles are brown with black (or gray and white) stripes and range from 2 feet to 43 inches long. They are smooth with a V or Y shaped mark on the head.

These snakes are known to shiver rapidly, hiss, and bite animals and humans. The most important question might be are they toxic? The answer is no. You can find out more about them here.

WARNING: These are the deadliest animals in the world

WATCH: Here are the pets banned in each state

Since the regulation of exotic pets is left to the states, some organizations, including the Humane Society of the United States, are advocating for standardized federal legislation that would prohibit the ownership of large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.

Read on to see which pets are banned in your home country, as well as nationwide.

The nine dog breeds most at risk from today’s heat wave have been shared by experts. Canine experts have spoken out as the temperature hits a staggering 34C.

In Birmingham, the mercury will reach 32C. Both vets and the RSPCA have issued warnings to pet owners urging them to refrain from walking dogs in the heat.

The complete list is: Chow chow, bulldog, French bulldog, French mastiff and sighthounds. King Charles Spaniels round out the list, alongside the Pug, English Springer Spaniel and Golden Retriever.

Warning signs of heat stroke include h heavy panting and difficulty breathing, excessive drooling and the dog appears lethargic, sleepy or uncoordinated. They may also collapse or vomit.

The RSPCA warns: “Dogs suffering from heat stroke urgently need to bring their body temperature down gradually to have the best chance of survival.” The group added: “Once the dog has cooled down, take him to the nearest vet urgently.

“Certain types of dogs are more prone to heatstroke, such as very old or young dogs, dogs with thick, thick coats, or dogs with very short, flat faces like pugs and bulldogs.” He continued: “Dogs with certain illnesses or on certain types of medications are also at higher risk.”

A Former Pet Industry Worker Warns Against Adopting These Five ‘Worst’ Dog Breeds https://club-fuer-molosser.net/a-former-pet-industry-worker-warns-against-adopting-these-five-worst-dog-breeds/ Mon, 13 Jun 2022 15:26:02 +0000 https://club-fuer-molosser.net/a-former-pet-industry-worker-warns-against-adopting-these-five-worst-dog-breeds/ Dogs truly are man’s best friend, so it makes sense that pet owners would get defensive if told that their four-legged friend is one of the worst dog breeds to own.

Dogs truly are man’s best friend, so it makes sense that pet owners would get defensive if told that their four-legged friend is one of the worst dog breeds to own.

A woman on TikTok has sparked a debate after listing the five dog breeds she would never own after working in the pet industry. The video, which received over seven million views on the platform, had many dog ​​owners defending their specific breed of dog in the comments, while others agreed with his controversial views.

The TikToker, which passes @chilicheesechelsea online, captioned his video with a disclaimer: “I love these breeds but don’t want to own one. Don’t come for me doodle moms… THIS IS JUST MY OPINION!!!! (And a joke, I have a chihuahua lol)”

She started her list of the five worst dog breeds to own with none other than a Husky. According to the American Kennel Club, Siberian Huskies are a thick-coated Nordic breed developed to work in packs, which makes them get along well with other dogs. Huskies have both an undercoat and guard hair, which means they should be brushed weekly to help keep the double coat in good condition. However, this former pet industry worker had another reason for not wanting to own this wolf-like dog.

“Completely out of balance and still screaming,” she said. And she wasn’t the only person to agree that huskies tend to be loud animals.

A woman has explained that she didn’t understand ‘hatred of huskys’ until she house-sat a friend with the dog breed. “That damn dog used to sing his people’s song to me at 5 a.m. every day,” she said.

Next on the list of the top five worst dog breeds to own was a German Shepherd, which this TikToker cited as “always the most anxious and WHY.”

German Shepherds (GSDs) are natural watchdogs, but it’s this trait that also makes them anxious. A Blog for German Shepherd owners suggests that anxiety is an adaptive and evolutionary trait for these dogs, stemming from their need to be alert and cautious of their surroundings.

“I can confirm that my GSD is anxious even after lots of professional training,” one TikTok user commented.

The third dog breed on his list of hard-to-own pets was a Samoyed due to their “incessant barking” and being the “fun police.” Samoyeds are known for their all-white fur coat and infectious energy. They are playful dogs, which means they tend to bark quite often. However, this was not the case for some TikTokers who claimed that their Samoyed “never barks” but “howls sometimes”.

She then added “literally ANY doodle mix” to her list of least favorite dog breeds to own because pet owners “don’t know how to manage their energy,” making them “demons uncontrollable”. Plus, the doodle mix dog breeds she’s worked with in the past were “always MATTED,” she said.

Doodle dogs are mixes between a poodle and any other breed of dog. This year, Poodles were ranked in the top five most popular dog breeds in the United States, for the first time since 1997. Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are among the most popular doodle mixes due to their loss low or zero. But because doodles are a mixed breed, it’s impossible to predict how their coat will turn out, leading to matted fur if not cared for properly.

Many doodle owners took offense to their pet being ranked as one of their least favorite breeds.

“Doodles are literally the sweetest and best dogs ever,” one user said.

“My doodle is the best dog I’ve ever owned,” another person said.

“Our doodle is literally one of the best dogs I’ve ever had,” wrote a third user. “As long as you take care of them, they are literally the sweetest dogs ever.”

It also seemed like his opinion on the doodles might not have been so controversial after all.

“I love the doodle slander,” one person said, while another user wrote, “I’m so over the doodle phase.”

“I totally agree with you on DOODLES,” one TikToker commented. “They’re the worst! As a dog walker, they were the worst to walk. I’m glad someone said that.

The last dog breed to be named number five on its list of the worst dog breeds to own wasn’t necessarily a breed of dog, but any type of “small white dog with crusty eyes” to be “little ankle biters.” crispy”. This type of dog, especially a Maltese or a Shih Tzu, has been the subject of many viral memes over the years.

Horner’s syndrome in dogs, also sometimes called droopy eye, is the name given to a neurological problem which typically affects a dog’s eyes and facial muscles. It can produce a variety of symptoms, including droopy eyes and eyes that appear to have shrunk.

The condition can often result from brain or spinal cord damage. However, in many cases, the precise cause remains unknown; although it seems to affect male Golden Retrievers and Collies much more than other breeds.

If you see signs of a neurological disorder in your dog, then you need to go to a veterinarian for proper diagnosis and advice. Here’s what you need to know about the symptoms, causes, and treatments for Horner’s syndrome in dogs.

Symptoms of Horner’s Syndrome in Dogs

Symptoms of Horner’s syndrome in dogs can usually be noticed by looking at a dog’s eyes and facial muscles.

Some most common symptoms to understand:

  • Drooping upper eyelids
  • Appearance of a third eyelid
  • Pupils seem smaller than usual
  • Inflammation of the ear
  • Eyes appear narrowed

Causes of Horner’s Syndrome in Dogs

The cause of Horner’s syndrome in dogs is sometimes related to a recent injury to the brain or spine. Infections can also cause this syndrome. But many cases are considered idiopathic, meaning the precise cause remains unknown.

While all dog breeds can develop the disease, male Golden Retrievers and Collies seem to have the highest risk of suffering from it.

Veterinary treatments

If you are concerned that your dog is developing Horner’s Syndrome, your veterinarian will want to perform a physical exam on your dog and collect blood and urine samples.

Your veterinarian will ask detailed questions about your dog’s recent history to try to determine if he has suffered any trauma or injuries that may have caused the disease.

In most cases, veterinarians will use radiographic techniques such as MRIs and X-rays to make a diagnosis.

Treatment usually focuses on targeting the underlying cause of the disease. If there is an infection, a veterinarian will prescribe medication or antibiotics.

As always, if your veterinarian prescribes medication for your dog, it is essential that you follow the precise dosage and administration instructions and complete all treatment.

In many cases, veterinarians will recommend eye medication and lubricants as a way to help relieve any immediate eye pain or issues your dog is experiencing.

Has your dog developed Horner’s Syndrome? What treatment did your vet recommend? Let us know in the comments section below.

Daniel Andrews defends his plan to cull wild horses as protesters gather outside state parliament | National parks https://club-fuer-molosser.net/daniel-andrews-defends-his-plan-to-cull-wild-horses-as-protesters-gather-outside-state-parliament-national-parks/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 07:02:00 +0000 https://club-fuer-molosser.net/daniel-andrews-defends-his-plan-to-cull-wild-horses-as-protesters-gather-outside-state-parliament-national-parks/ Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has defended the decision to cull feral horses that are causing ecological damage to Victoria’s fragile alpine ecosystems, as protesters campaigning against the planned shooting crowded the steps of parliament in the state.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has defended the decision to cull feral horses that are causing ecological damage to Victoria’s fragile alpine ecosystems, as protesters campaigning against the planned shooting crowded the steps of parliament in the state.

Parks Victoria plans to remove 500 horses from the eastern alpine region this year as part of a wild horse management plan that includes the eventual removal of all horses from Barmah National Park on the Murray River and the high Bogong Plains .

The protest comes a month after Parks Victoria launched a tender for wildlife control in alpine areas, for the ground shooting of “deer, wild pigs, goats, foxes and other species”. Jill Pickering, chair of the Australian Brumby Alliance, says she thinks other species will include horses.

“They don’t announce the shooting until after it’s happened,” she said.

Parks Victoria declined to confirm any shooting plans and said it would not release details of when and where the planned shoots would be to protect the safety of its staff and contractors.

“There are large numbers of feral horses in Alpine and Barmah National Parks and the damage they cause is evident,” a spokesperson said. “Parcs Victoria must respond to the current situation with the best techniques available.”

There are around 5,000 feral horses in the Eastern Alps, 600 in Barmah National Park and 100 in the high plains of Bogong, according to surveys by Parks Victoria.

Andrews said the state government’s plan to control feral horses, which was revised last year, was humane and based on protecting national parks.

‘If you care about biodiversity and if you care about the natural environment, this pristine environment belongs to every Victorian… it will not be maintained if you are overrun by wild animals,’ he told reporters . “And we won’t spend millions and millions of dollars relocating them.”

The wild horse management plan states that some horses will be removed through passive trapping and rehousing, especially in more accessible areas like Barmah National Park.

But he says the difficulty of trapping horses in remote parts of the Eastern Alps, combined with a shortage of people with the knowledge and ability to train wild horses, meant it was ‘unlikely to be captured and rehomed. contribute significantly to the necessary reduction of feral horse populations in the Eastern Alps”.

Where repatriation cannot occur, he says, shooting from the ground or aerial shooting will be considered.

Pickering says that despite the repatriation policy, the government “by default, shoots”. She also denied that the science was established on the damage feral horses do to Australian ecosystems.

Wednesday’s protest also coincided with the state’s opposition announcing that it would ban the culling of feral horses to focus on “repatriation and veterinary intervention,” a proposal that advocates say animal welfare and environmentalists, would not be able to handle the volume of horses that need to be removed from national parks.

The stance echoes a decision by the New South Wales National Party to end the culling of feral horses in Kosciuszko National Park by declaring them a heritage breed. In November, the NSW government approved a plan to reduce the number of feral horses from over 14,000 to 3,000, a number that conservationists said was still too high.

Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy said ending the culling was both humane and sensible.

“This is not a new issue, it goes back to the Snowy River man and beyond,” he said. “We can re-school, rehouse greyhounds, we should be able to do it with brumbies.”

Pro-Brumby groups, including the Australian Brumby Alliance, have argued that horses should be trapped at a rate of around 200 a year, allowing recyclers to keep pace, and that other controls of population should be effected via the use of fertility control drugs.

Parks Victoria and the RSPCA say fertility control drugs are not a feasible option for a large and diverse feral horse population, especially since they need to be re-administered after a few years.

Matt Ruchel, of the Victorian National Parks Association, said there was a world of difference between the repatriation of a Greyhound, a low-energy dog ​​bred by humans, and the knowledge and facilities needed to retrain and rehome a wild horse.

“We don’t repatriate wild dogs,” Ruchel said.

Ruchel said the Coalition’s policy was “disappointing” and that controlling feral horse numbers required a combination of approaches, including repatriation and culling.

“There just isn’t the demand [for rehomed brumbies] to effectively control the numbers,” he said.

Ruchel said calls by pro-Brumby advocates for more research to determine the effects of feral horses on national parks were “just a delaying tactic”.

“There are decades of science pointing to this problem,” he said.

Mhairi Roberts of RSPCA Victoria said there were circumstances in which shooting, by trained snipers, was “more humane than other options”.

She said feral horses were under great stress from certain methods of capture and the process of transport to rehomers, and there were thousands of non-feral horses in Victoria who also needed homes.

“We are seeing a high number of reports of animal cruelty involving horses, most related to neglect,” she said. “Based on these reports, we think the market is already pretty saturated. We don’t think there would be enough homes in the state for a large number of wild horses.

That you are adopt your first pet or adding another furry family member to the fold, you probably know that owning a pet is a huge responsibility.

Taking your pet to their routine vet visits, providing them with toys to play with and a comfortable bed is the tip of the iceberg. You may not realize it, but your pet’s needs change with the seasons – and they can’t hold an umbrella or put on a snowsuit. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at some important steps you need to take to keep your pet safe and healthy this summer.

know your breed

While many people adopt mixed breeds from local shelters, others choose to purchase purebred dogs from reputable breeders. It goes without saying that you don’t want to support puppy mills or breeders with sketchy backgrounds. Want to know more about your dog’s breed than how to say Papillion or the correct Cane Corso pronunciation. Suppose you adopt an English Bulldog or a Pug; getting to know brachycephalic breeds and how to care for them is paramount. These types of dogs, in particular, are prone to heat exhaustion in the summer. A Chinese Crested or American Hairless Terrier will need SPF to protect their skin from sun damage or skin cancer in the summer. So, find out what breed of dog you are buying for specific summer needs.

All water bowls

Just like you, your dog will likely spend more time outdoors in the summer, and just like you, your dog will need to hydrate more often than during the colder months. Not only make sure you have their water where you keep it inside your home, but a bowl outside is also essential. If you’re taking your dog on a hike, to the beach, or on any other outdoor adventure away from home, plan ahead and bring a portable water bottle and water to fill it up.

Made in the shade

Although it is illegal in many states of chain your dog outside, in others it is not. Since it’s up to you as the owner of the animal in states where chaining is legal, you may decide to do so for a few days. If so, make sure your dog has plenty of shade to retreat to when the sun is shining. A dog bed with a canopy under a tree is an ideal spot. Show your outdoor dog a little more love by including a plastic wading pool he can cool off in whenever he wants. While it’s best to fence your dog and ditch the chain, keep your dog cool and comfortable with the previously mentioned necessities if you’re on a budget and saving up for your fence.

Eat fresh and seasonal

There are plenty of foods on the “do not feed” list for dogs, and they are worth educating. Even indoor and outdoor plants and flowers can pose a risk if your dog is curious enough about them to eat them. Although dark chocolate, macadamia nuts, and xylitol pose the most serious threats to your dog, you can take advantage of summer’s seasonal abundance of special treats for your pup. Dogs are carnivores and the bulk of their diet should be meat, but they love to feast on summer vegetables like blueberries, cucumbers, cantaloupe, oranges, peaches, and even pineapple! The next time you and your family have a picnic, get Fido in on the action; they will be as happy as you!

Vehicle security

In the same way, you would never leave a baby or child in a hot car; you cannot leave your dog in the car while you run errands. Many people take their dogs with them in their daily activities, but it’s hard to leave them in your vehicle in the summer, even if you’re just “jumping around”. Cars heat up quickly in the summer, even with cracked windows. If you’re heading somewhere your puppy can’t come, it’s best to leave him at home, where he’ll stay safe.

Having a pet, for most people, is just as joyful as having a child. That’s why it’s so important to take care of your pet like you would any other member of the family. Keep your furry friends safe this summer by following the above guidelines for a healthy and happy season.

Although his somewhat docile demeanor around the barn earned him a contrary nickname, Bull Meechum turned into a tiger on the trail of trainer Anthony Farrior. The West Virginia-born talent has now won three straight tournaments at Charles Town and looks set to make his playing debut next month.

Bull Meechum. a five-year-old Limehouse gelding that Farrior trains for owner-breeder Conroy Thoroughbreds LLC, notched his third consecutive score on May 25 by taking an allowance dash of a lap in 52.34 seconds as a 3-10 favorite with Arnaldo Bocachica on board.

Bull Meechum’s laid-back manner earned him the nickname “Puppy Dog” around the barn. His efforts on the track, however, and his winding path to success earned him a lot of respect from Farrior.

“He’s definitely a barn favorite,” Farrior said of Bull Meechum, who has made four of five starts this year and boasts six wins and nearly $110,000 cashed in 12 career tries. “Around the barn, it’s just a big adorable puppy. It’s almost like a pet, but once it’s on the trail and through the door, it’s utterly professional. He has so much speed and raw talent. It just keeps getting better. He’s recovered from two cracked shins and he’s still able to run as fast as he does.

Bull Meechum began his career on January 8, 2020 and competed in the first four special weight events that year before suffering the first of two foot injuries and getting his first long vacation after a runner-up effort in May 2020 .

Bull Meechum returned to the track the following spring and graduated against the young claimant on March 25, 2021. He finished fourth in his next outing in April before getting another extended layoff, this one almost eight months due to shins, before returning to defeat the contenders again on December 3, 2021.

Given his medical condition, Bull Meechum has maintained a busy schedule since the schedule changed to 2022. He raced on February 18, March 18, March 26, April 13 and May 25. All but the March 18 race – in which he finished third – ended with Bull Meechum having his photo taken.

Bull Meechum has posted three straight net scores, beating allocation foes on March 26 by nearly three lengths in 52.10, beating the next allocation company as odds pick by four lengths in 51.85, and then recently prevailed as a 1-5 favorite in a one-round open allocation.

“I hate being the 1-5 favorite,” Farrior said. “It seems like everyone expects you to win and when you don’t it’s so disappointing. But he’s been really good the last three months. state but his last two ran into an open company I named him to [$75,000] It’s just money stakes [on June 11]. There are only 17 days left until his last race, but I don’t think that rapid delay will bother him.

Bull Meechum is a homebred for Conroy Thoroughbreds out of Songandaprayer mare Pink Gloss, a 10-time career winner. With his strong 2022 year to date, the horse they call Puppy Dog has become Conroy’s top earner.

Bull Meechum would make his in-game debut if he posted in It’s Only Money Stakes. He could later attempt other one-turn stakes for state breeds, the Last Enchantment and the West Virginia Dash For Cash Breeders’ Classic.

Although he was not born in West Virginia, It’s Only Money earned his fame by capturing the inaugural race of the $50,000 Charles Town Dash on July 4, 1999 for owner-trainer Tom Grams. It’s Only Money finally retired with six wins and over $155,000 in 29 careers.

@northjerseynews via Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge on Facebook

A squatter is accused of raising dogs in the “dilapidated basement of a once gleaming mansion” that is now abandoned in New Jersey, according to a rescue group.

A total of 19 dogs, including three German Shepherd Doberman pinschers, were rescued by animal control officers after being brought up in “horrendous conditions” at Paterson’s seized home, according to a Facebook post from the Ramapo-Bergen animal shelter.

The squatter, who police believe was a repeat dog-breeding offender who lived on the dilapidated property, got away with at least one puppy, according to the shelter. Rescued dogs range from “young adults to seniors”.

McClatchy News has contacted Paterson Police for more information.

“Just a day ago, these 19 dogs were living in filth and misery for the sole purpose of breeding,” the post read. “Today they have a new lease of life, thanks to the rescue.”

The shelter says several of the dogs, described as “weak and malnourished”, were kept crammed into cages which showed “evidence of dogs digging to escape”. .

Additionally, “the feces covered the entire house, even the walls,” the shelter says.

Authorities are investigating whether these dogs are related to other German Shepherds who were recently rescued after being found “abandoned all over New Jersey and New York,” according to the group.

“The public needs to know where they ‘adopt’ their pets from and recognize the moms, dads and dogs left behind when they bring home their shiny new pup.”

At least three of the dogs rescued on May 24, named Rose, Iris and Lily, are yet to be adopted from May 26, according to another post.

Those interested in adoption can contact adoptlove@rbari.org or complete an application at rbari.org.

Paterson is about 70 miles northeast of Trenton.

Protecting your dog while walking

All dogs need regular exercise, but now is the perfect time for dog theft to occur. Here are the top tips for keeping your dog safe on a walk:

– Practice recall and/or use extended lead : in the event of an emergency or a threat to your dog, it is essential to ensure that he will answer your calls. Try to use tasty treats for your dog, as this will greatly help him remember.

– Avoid routine : This makes it harder for dognapping gangs to track you and figure out when to intercept and steal your dog.

– Walk with a friend : Whenever possible, go safe in numbers, a friend will provide an additional witness and backup if you encounter a dognapper.

– Do not give the name of your dog: Putting your dog’s name on their collar, harness, or ID card can make it easier for strangers to attract them.

– Stay aware of your surroundings: keep your eyes on your dog and avoid distractions like cell phones. Try to always have a charged phone and don’t wear headphones when walking your dog.

– Be seen and be heard as an owner: in order to make everyone aware that the dog is yours and that you are constantly watching it, to deter potential dognappers.

– Walking in open spaces: if you feel uncomfortable, try opting for open, populated spaces where you can be easily seen.

– Follow your instincts: If you suspect someone is following you or if they arouse your suspicion, leave the area quickly.

Keeping your dog safe on the go

– Avoid location tags on social networks : This prevents thieves from knowing your address or the place where you regularly go with your dog.

– Be particularly vigilant : Report any suspicious activity you see.

– Use a GPS tracking collar : consider investing in a GPS tracking collar, this will allow you to know the position of your dog at any time.

– Beware of strangers who ask you a lot of questions : always beware of an unknown person who asks unusual or constant questions about your dog (both online and offline).

– Dog walking/kennel/toilet services: always carry out full and thorough checks to see if they are trustworthy and reputable.

– Write down emergency SOS shortcuts on your phone: these can help you if you feel threatened or in danger.

– Carry an alarm device : these can help scare off attackers and attract attention.

– Refuse help from strangers: Unless absolutely necessary, avoid strangers’ offers of help for your dog.

– Tinting the windows of your car: dognappers have been known to steal dogs from cars.

– Keep your dog on the construction side: move them away from the sidewalk.

– Athe adult must always maintain control : Make sure children always walk dogs in the presence of an adult, as dog addicts may be more likely to target those they consider less likely to resist.

– Find local stores that accept dogs: this will ensure that your dog does not need to be left outside or in the car.

Prevent dog theft from your home

– Protect the house and secure the goods : Think dog cameras, CCTV and video doorbells.

– Dogs are easily removed from gardens : especially front gardens, so be sure to secure your garden with high fences.

– Gates with lock and alarm : to prevent unwanted intruders.

– Leave a light on if your dog is home alone: it can be useful in the evening, so it looks like someone is inside. Along with this, always turn on an outdoor light for late night supervised bathroom exits so you can see your dog at all times.

– Outdoor kennels must also be alarmed and locked: for all dogs kept outdoors, ensure kennels are sufficiently secure.

– Gravel your path or driveway: it is therefore more difficult for intruders to approach discreetly.

– Regularly test your home alarm: to make sure it is in working order.

– Lock your dog’s cat flap when not in use: and do not leave the window open in the room where your dog is.

– Do not present new puppies online: be careful when sharing too many new pets, puppies are especially valuable for napping dogs.
