Dogs on Winnipesaukee
 
Ok, the dishes are done and I am not bored, but I had an idea... I know some of you are saying what now Pineedles? Well if the Winnipesaukee.com server can stand it, how about a thread where we can post pictures of our dogs on Winnipsaukee? The rules are that your dog (sorry, no cats unless they are immersed in water and don't look P'd off) must be in or above the water line in some fashion. But the caveat is, that does not include pictures of them in boats (in most cases). So, on the dock is OK, swinging on a rope swing into the water is OK, parachuting from a helicopter into the water is OK, on the gunnels riding in an 18' Wellcraft is not, although I would ask that the moderator to give some leniency in this category; Particularly if the pooch is captaining boats above 20'. Let the posting begin.:laugh:

I love this place!!!

No Dogs Please!
 
I've got neighbors that have dogs that bark all the time. On one side it is a big dog that thinks he has to bark loud every time I am out in the yard or drive in or out.

On the other side are neighbors that have a yippy little dog that barks at all hours of the day or night. One night they came home in their boat at 11:00PM and the dog barked for 15 minutes straight. I finally walked out on the front deck and said "Could you do something about the dog please" They replied "Go back inside and watch TV. The dog is barking because he is happy to see us, that's what dogs do" Ignorant!

I don't know weather to start calling the police or get a loudspeaker aimed at their house and play recorded dog barking every morning at 3:00AM until they get it.

Sorry, but the fewer dogs there are at the lake (at least in my neighborhood) the happier I will be.

And before you ask the question, I have never done anything, in any way, that impacted the peace and tranquility of my neighbors. I should not have to listen to their dog bark at any time. If I honked the horn on my car the amount of times and at the odd hours their dogs barked would they find that acceptable? I think not.

A little mutual respect for your neighbors would go a long way.

Barking dog alarm
 
A barking dog alarms might work for your barking problem. They use a sonic tone to get the dog's attention. While they work on automatic, I've had better luck when using them on manual. When the dog barks, you turn it on and vary the pitch. They stop - you stop. They start - you start again. It takes a while to train them, but eventually they get the picture. Good luck.

Thanks Lakegeezer

I didn't think this thread would start an uproar of people who are bothered by dogs. But thank you for trying to help TiltonBB. I too use a sonic device to "help" my dogs see teh err of their way when they bark unappropriately.

Here's a pic of one of my babies, her name is Reilly and she is 2 years old, she loves her brother (my 23 yeard old human son) more than anything.:)

Cats Unite!
 
I just want to let you know that our cats are very upset regarding this thread. They feel that a thread that exclusively focuses on dogs is inappropriate on this forum and they are considering posting nasty remarks about all the local restaurants until this injustice is rectified.

I have tried to reason with them, however, they are threatening to walk across my keyboard and the last time that they did that it took me about an hour to fix my network connections and system settings. Frankly, I think that they are serious and urge the forum to consider this threat seriously.

As I write this one is sleeping next to my laptop, but I suspect that he is aware of my every move.

:D:D:D:D:D

...and cats "immersed" in water? That's not very nice.
Finnegan would not want to read that.

Alright let's see fluffy, and paws, and Finnegan. I had two calicos years ago; spike and jones and they were really cute, so bring on the pictures. BTW, reilly's to young to operate the PWC she's only 2 years old and she didn't pass the on-line boater safety course. She's a wizard a jumping up on the keyboard but got too many wrong answers.:laugh:

Here is a pic of the 3 dalmatians that I live with. This pic is about 3 years old. Carrie is on the right, she is 7 now. Ace, who is 5 is in the middle. And Pirate (who is also in my avatar) is on the left. He is 3, and is a lot bigger now. He is the ruler of this roost.

We also have 3 cats, but I don't have any pictures of them. Actually, one of my cats (my baby Boo Boo) has been missing since last night. :( So we might be down to 2 cats, much to my dismay. We are holding out hope, but she has never been gone overnight before.
Anyway, we also have Marshmellow, who is a large white fluffy kitty, and is around 8 or 9 years old. We took him in as a stray, so we don't know exactly how old he is. And we adopted a kitty a couple months ago, she is not officially named yet. I call her Kwinny (KWNN-kitty with no name). She is a ball of fire!!

Pineedles 08-31-2008 07:36 PM

Wonderful picture
 
I hope you find Boo Boo. I lost a real cutie (paws) to a coyote many years ago while I heard it happen. I'm sure yours is just day trippin for a few days.

What a picture! I already have my favorite. Pirate! Plus I see they are all wearing their border collars. What a wonderful invention.

Sorry to bring the thread down but we have dog issues here as well. Barking almost constantly.. The little yippy ones realy get me. How can someone sit at the lake with a dog barking non stop and find it tranquil?
Respect seems to be a thing of the past as more people are showing up with dogs.. running through yards and pooping all over the place

The problem you cite is not a dog problem, but a people problem -- just like loud boats, loud music, camp loudspeakers, motorcycles, etc. Did I mention loud boats? All these can be controlled by their owners (well, maybe not the boats so much).

We have two dogs, and usually have three at the house. They don't bark, they are kept on-leash when off our property, and I am the only one who sees their poop. Barking dogs are an owner issue. Address the owners, address the issue.

I think my dogs enjoy the Lake as much as humans!

Pineedles 09-01-2008 11:50 AM

Well said Grant
 
I won't say anything against the people who are posting comments that I didn't intend to solicit with this thread, as it is important for we who have canine and feline guests in our home to respect the rights of our neighbors. Hopefully all who read this thread who love their cats and dogs do as Grant, SteveA, Chipj29, jetskier, sa mersdith, lakegeezer, and I'm sure many more try to do, which is to be good neighbors.:coolsm:

Huh and TiltonBB, you should speak to your inconsiderate neighbors.

wishiwasthere 09-01-2008 04:18 PM

great thread Pineedles!
 
I will try find my pics of my dogs that both passed away last summer.:( The "yippie" rat terrier, although rare for the breed, loved the water, as long as there was a ball thrown off the dock, or into the water, she would swim forever. She would also ride in the cockpit of the kayak with me, and then venture out on the front of it and enjoy the ride. Had to scoop her out a few times! :) My shepard/golden tried to "save" me and my 3 yr old son, one time on a tube. She jumped off a rock and headed out to us. Luckily, she was intercepted by my hubby, or we would have been deflated and gone down. I miss these dogs, and although the yipping can be annoying,:eek: I learned this summer that she really kept the squirells and chipmunks out of our yard at home. The critters have taken over!! I just know my dogs loved the lake, and didn't bark at night or at neighbors. My cat on the other hand would probably have stripped the area of all small living creatures,and maybe not so small, so he stays home! Sorry to the kitty's!
Keep the pics coming, love them all!!!

Thanks Pineedles. We have lost other cats to coyotes, and I heard one of them getting picked off. Was not fun. This one hurt a lot, as we have had Boo Boo for several years, and she has come to be my baby kitty.

And wouldn't you know!! As I typed this while watching the start of the Sox game, I thought I heard a meow. I jumped up and low and behold, there is Boo Boo at the front door! She has never been gone overnight once, nevermind two nights. I brought her inside and gave her a big hug. My guess is that she got trapped in someones garage or something. I don't know, but she wouldn't stay out on her own.

Anyway, a big sigh of relief for me. :)

We have become "cat people" but no pets have ever beat our Goldens. They are both sadly gone for many years. No better breed IMHO.

Someone once told me that living with a Golden was like living with an idiot relative.. (no insult to anyones relatives! ) :)

My favorite Golden story comes from a friend of my Dad. Frank and his wife where getting ready to go out for the evening, and husband Frank was assigned to go out and find "Walter" their Golden. Old Walter was always off visiting the neighbors. As Frank drove around in the pouring rain looking for Walter, he finally spotted him on a neighbors front porch. He rolled down the window and called Walter into the car. Walter jumped into the back seat. When he got home, he found his "Walter" already on his front porch.. and had to return the other Golden to his home. Long story, but anyone that has or has had a Golden will "get it". :laugh:

My Hollie Bear is not the typical dog you see on the lake. Pekingese are not known for their swimming ability. To be honest the only time she has been in the lake is when she walked off the end of the swim platform not realizing it was water. Since then she has been completely content to sit on the bow seat or the Captains chair and "watch"

Pineedles 09-04-2008 12:02 PM

She looks pretty confident with her PFD on though.

Dixie looks like a shepard? I have always loved that breed and never had one. Perhaps someday.

Yes you are correct. She was a GS. Loved my husband followed him all over. Our new dog, Tess, see avitar, loves me and follows me everywhere.

We haven't got Tess in the water yet, but we were told she was part GS, part Golden and a little Collie.

We ordered the life jacked thru a website on the web although I don't remember the name.

Thanks for a great story about Walter the Golden! I did try to get a picture of our Sheltie on, because she'd love to see the lake. That can never happen, because she sings the Star Spangled Banner and every other thing you can think of--non-stop-- when riding in the car, so none of us could survive the 1250 mile ride up there. Well, in any case, I got a lesson on bending the rules, because my attempts got me a nasty message( something about security) from my computer, and I ended up logged off and out of the Forum, in spite of myself! Whatever! I don't need to go there...I'll just enjoy all of your pictures! Thanks...they are all wonderful.

I'm not sure I know how to post one, but I'll give it a shot. If it works, this is Bailey 7 years ago when he was 4 years old. Not sure he'd be able to get his butt up on the bow seat at this point in time, although he was insistent about going for boat rides this past summer.

2. Launching of “CATBOATS” will occur at 2:00 pm Sunday, Aug. 7, 1983. (Each participant is responsible for the preservation of assigned zucchinis until that moment.)

3. The basic theme of each boat must be “ZUCCHINI CAT-BOAT”, but freedom of expression is encouraged.

4. The New Hampshire SPCA will furnish one witness to assure that boat occupants are not subjected to inhumane treatment, although an occasional dunking will not be construed as anti-feline treatment. JUDGES will award prizes for originality of design, sea-worthiness, and driest cat. Be sure to attend this event and witness the thrill of such events as:
Cat Throw Cat Sink Cats on the Roof Top And more...

PLACE:
Aldridge Beach or Deep Cove (depending on prevailing wind.)
Apparently, the cats got wind of the event, and a couple of them disappeared for the day. Fortunately, we were able to draft a couple of pet rabbits as last minute substitutes, this being that they either liked the water better than cats, or were dumber. A large number of craft were entered in the competition.
The outcome of the race will be revealed in Winnipesaukee Cuisine

Here is our rescue gal and my avitar, Sarah (nicknamed "Smooch" for reasons easy to guess). ;-)
She LOVES wading in the water as she doesn't swim very well -- she was a landlubber until we rescued her...but that quickly changed!

WOW! Great pictures, Gravy! Keep e'm coming!
What a cute puppy! :)

This is by far, hands down the best thread on this forum IMHO, you all have beautiful animals and they all look like they are having so much fun with their owners and eachother! And Jetskier's kitty is beautiful as well, what is the breed? I would say big fluff ball if I didn't know any better :laugh:

I have always been convinced after years of trying to have Reilly and Sam (two of the best labs ever) do what I want, rather than what they want, that dogs are smarter than people.:laugh:

I don't know about smarter....he was swimming in 40 degree water today :eek:

The paper is actually his one and only daily chore, he can't relax in the morning until the paper comes. He will sit and wait patiently in the driveway, some mornings if he is lucky the paper guy hands it to him with a dog biscuit.
He has been doing this since 10 weeks, I can remember him dragging the paper up the driveway as a pup. (I know I have video somewhere)

OMG, if only I could get them to do that! BTW, in the picture you posted, there is a rectangular area with a round "pipe?" in the middle. What is that? Nice looking comfortable firepit area.

sorry for going off topic

that is one end of our washer pits, a horseshoe type game where you pitch 2" diameter washers into the cup, fun, addictive, and good for the whole family as you are not throwing the big heavy shoes.

So it's not only at our house! Ours has assigned HERSELF several jobs..the biggest being she feels SHE must notify my husband when dinner is ready...after having bugged me everyday around 4:30 to get into the kitchen and get busy,and "dogging" my every move as I prepare it!

Here is a pic of Romeo or Romie (pronounced Roam-ee) as we call him. He was pestering me in the truck earlier this week for his walk around Alton Bay. He loves to walk near the water but isn't keen about going in it! Even when we are in the boat he takes refuge under the drivers seat!

You may be wondering what took me so long to post in this fantastic thread. I had such trouble picking a picture!

Mac, our little Cairn Terrier is such fun! He loves to go for rides on the jet-ski. Our son, Jeff is the operator.

http://www.winnipesaukee.com/photopo...3-09_145-2.jpg

He also loves to go tubing!

You may have already seen the following pictures.

He loved the kneeboard!

Mac is a wonderful spotter too! :laugh:

Thanks for sharing... those are just too cute !!

I enjoy looking at every one of them ( a couple of times, actually)

Mack is a good spotter but that second photo raises a question. Does one need a spotter if the rider is a dog?:laugh:

ATTENTION NEW MEMBERS to Winnipesaukee.com, PLEASE post some pictures of your dogs! Oh yeah, as SteveA says, cats are welcome too. Just do it with the lake as a backdrop. Are there anymore adventureous dogs like Mac out there that can water ski, or fish, drive a boat, relax in a raft, build sand castles, etc.? :D

The first pic is of our dog, Sully, swimming near Timber Island. The second pic is of Sully and his cousin, Kate relaxing on a tube while his other cousin, Henry (recently lost & found dog) swims right next to them. You can see him on the bottom right.
We're all looking forward to going back up to the lake over Labor Day weekend!

I think it's even. We all love the water. But it's safe to say they may have the dog paddle down a little bit better than me.

My step daughter was actually walking the dogs on this day (I ran in town). When I got back I snuck into the water with the raft to have some alone time.

No such luck...as soon as I paddled out I heard 2 splashes and then they were right there next to me.

I love them more than anything but I can NEVER do anything alone (including going to the bathroom AND taking a shower). The one on the right (Elle) jumps right in with me.

Cooper

Today we mourn the loss of our beloved Cooper, she lost her battle with kidney disease. Rest in Peace Cooper you will me missed.

We are not positive, but it is coincidental that the kidney's disease came about shortly after the cyno-bacteria was found in the lake. Organ failure in dogs was listed as potential threat.

For all of us dog lovers, I found this quote.

While there are many different roads that we take in life, it is those who walk with us that make the journey worth while.
