    I found out what Rudy is...

    LOL. I started calling Rudy a "rare Australian Pingodoodle - since he looks a bit like a Dingo, and the first test said he was part Poodle. And yes, a few people fell for it! :D Speaking of which, another reason I did the test was to prove he's not a "dangerous breed," since potential landlords...

    I found out what Rudy is...

    Yes, exactly... I didn't expect to get NOTHING out of it, especially after the second test! As for why I did it, I actually thought it would help me to understand his behavior. He has some odd traits like herding and "talking," which I thought might be attributed to breed. I'm also just a...

    I found out what Rudy is...

    I'm not getting my panties in a twist, LOL, just thought the attitude was unnecessary and rude... like I said, there are plenty of thing I'd consider a waste of money, but I wouldn't make fun of somebody for spending their money as they please. Anyway, if you think it's silly then don't do it...

    I found out what Rudy is...

    You know, there's no need to be rude about it everyone. Just something I did for curiosity's sake, and I'm sure others have spent money on things I would consider silly... but I certainly wouldn't tease them for it. Besides, it's not like I went broke over $75, LOL. :rolleyes:

    I found out what Rudy is...

    I've donated much more than $120 to shelters over the years, thanks. It was just for fun, and like I said, I only actually paid $75 - which is about what I spend at the pet store every week or two. ;)

    Rudy has a new kitten...

    Oh, and here's a prettier picture of the yet-to-be-named kitten... Please excuse the dirty floors, LOL - and that's my cat Cyrus' butt in the background.

    Rudy has a new kitten...

    Thank you for the advice, and for the compliments. :) Rudy doesn't really free-feed... I sometimes leave dry food out if I'm working late (Thursdays I'm usually gone for 13-14 hours), but he doesn't guard the dry food since he's not a big fan. His regular mealtime is at night, when he gets one...

    Neighbors that don't pick up dog waste how do you feel?

    He called the sh-t poop! :lol-sign::rofl1: Love that movie...

    Neighbors that don't pick up dog waste how do you feel?

    I agree, it really ticks me off... especially since I live in the city, so it's inevitably in the middle of the sidewalk. Sometimes you can barely find a path around it! We have lots of little dogs in the neighborhood, and I think their owners think it's acceptable - the poop is small, so who...

    Rudy has a new kitten...

    Oh, and here's how I reacted to his little outburst... he got a sharp collar tug & NO, and then I isolated him in the hallway for a few minutes. I let him back in the room, and then claimed the food as mine - by holding it in my lap, and making him sit as I took it away every few bites. I also...

    Rudy has a new kitten...

    Uh-oh... I discovered one thing they can't share - food. Rudy has some food-guarding issues, but it's only ever been with dogs. He let the kitten taste his food the other day, but just now he snarled at her when she tried his dinner. Luckily I caught it quickly, before he had a chance to hurt...

    Meet Darby the Dane!

    So beautiful! :) She definitely needs to fatten up, which I'm sure will happen quickly... love the markings, and I had no idea Danes came in merle colors!

    I found out what Rudy is...

    I went through this company: https://www.canineheritage.com/ The test costs $120, but I only paid about $75, since they upgraded me from the original test (which only had 39 breeds to test for). There are other companies that have more breeds, but I think they're a little more expensive...

    I found out what Rudy is...

    I don't care, I just thought it would be fun to find out... people are always asking what breed he is, and it might be nice to have an answer. :rolleyes: But I love him no matter what his heritage is, so I am fine with calling him a mutt!

    Rudy has a new kitten...

    She's still a little skittish with people, and has been sleeping on a blanket under the bed... but she is very lovable when she comes out, and will come when Rudy "calls" her. She actually escaped through the cat/dog door this morning, and Rudy woke me up to show me where she went (on the patio...

    Rudy has a new kitten...

    I would say that I got a new kitten, but it seems she prefers Rudy to me! I just rescued a kitty from outside my work, where she was hanging out with the homeless for a few weeks... she is absolutely adorable and sweet, but still a little skittish and recovering from getting spayed. I was...

    I found out what Rudy is...

    he is officially a MUTT! :D:rolleyes: I got his DNA test results yesterday, and they said he's an "unidentified breed" - which either means that he's too many breeds, aka 100% mutt, or a breed they can't test for yet. As I mentioned in my other thread, they can't test for Cattle Dog or Kelpie...

    What is Rudy?

    Awww, too cute! :) He does look like Rudy, and my old vet was convinced he was part Chow... she put Chow/Shepherd mix on his file, and always said he had a "Chow mug." No purple tongue though, LOL.

    What type of harness?

    Maybe it's easier just to modify his Gentle Leader, huh? My roommate is a fashion designer, so I can probably bribe him to fix it up... he might throw in a few sequins and feathers though, LOL. :D

    Where's Chazhound?/The Chazhound Project

    Is this still going on? If so, I might enjoy playing along... he could have some fun in San Francisco! :)
