    Dogs And Fireworks: The Fear Isn't All In Their Heads

    “When our dogs are exposed to sudden loud sounds, there is a release of adrenaline and an increase of the hormone cortisol, as well as changes to their amygdala, hippocampus, and parts of the frontal cortex of their brain,” Cohen says. “In other words, brains change as a result of loud, anxiety producing noise. Our dogs are especially vulnerable to this effect during the summer months when thunderstorms prevail and during Fourth of July celebrations, where fireworks are set off in some neighborhoods all day and night.”

    Dropped my buddy off at the vet this morning for tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) for a blown cruciate ligament. The vet just called and said everything went well and I could pick him up in a couple hours. He’ll be out of action for a while but hopefully back to normal in a couple months. There goes my new ski budget for the year. $2600. But what else can you do?

    He's beautiful!

    I went through this 3 or 4 years ago with my Rosie girl. It worked out fine...though she's kind of a nut sometimes, so I am still waiting for her to blow out the other one. Being patient with the long recovery is really important!

    Good luck on the recovery! Rocky needs his knee worked on to correct a subluxing patella tendon. I’m dreading the recovery. 6 weeks of non weight bearing. Being only 15 months he’s still a nut job and I’m worried he’ll injure it or the other one.

    Check with your vet - they've got the drugs you need to slow Rocky down.

    A good double harness with a mid back handle helps handle them on steps, etc.

    I helped re-hab one of our dog's TPLO by napping together with my hand holding an ice pack on her knee. win-win!

    To keep him mellow while he's recovering you might try a thunder shirt. I used a Lycra one-piece suitical on my cat when she was spade and I was surprised at how quiet she was - did a lot of sleeping. I later realized it the suitical was acting like a thunder shirt.

    Looks like my old timer will be having surgery again to remove a tumor on her neck that is starting to interfere with her breathing. She is 13 so the expense seems a little insane. But this morning she walked a mile round trip to the dog park with my in-laws and their dogs, then ran 4 miles with me. When we got home she went straight to the back yard to hunt snakes. She still flies around even when it's hot. Plus she still does this:

    Best wishes to the healing pups above.

    I've given up on the food thing. Fruit, energy bars & meat are a regular thing for my boy now. After losing the last one too young to cancer I say fukkit, gonna let the pupper enjoy some tasty food.

    Any recommendations for dog raising / training books?

    Wife and I will be getting some sort of pupper in the next few months. We both grew up with dogs (me: labs, her: terriers).

    Go here:

    https://newsketemonks.com/

    “The Art Of Raising a Puppy” and “Be Your Dog’s Best Friend” are both very good. If they’re sold out, get ‘em on eBay.

    Books are fine...the New Skete monks have good basic stuff. But, best thing to do is to take the dog to a class. Why? Because at class you are really the student, learning how to train your dog. The mantra: 1. Insistence. 2. Persistence. 3. Consistence.

    Dropped Sadie off this morning for surgery. Just got a call from the surgeon after CT scan. Tumor has invaded her trachea and spine. There is another growth in her lungs. Surgery cancelled. Fuck. What a great dog.Click image for larger version.

    So sorry. Spoil her while you can. Some of my favorite memories of our old labs were from their last few months with us. It’s almost like they knew they had limited time, and it was even more special.
