Digby & Rocket

 

Since Digby had been "de-barked" by the time Rocket came on the scene,

Rocket never learned to bark. 

 

So I've included this video of a talking Husky to speak for the boys...

They are beautiful dogs Elizabeth... but who would ever want to teach their dogs not to bark... they can save our lives...

Penny and i just loved the video of the talking husky puppy... great find....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - I think they're more court jesters than beautiful, personally. They are like walking cartoons.
When the neighbors called the cops three times in one week because of the barking- my friend decided she had to do something. They are still quite good at alerting her to every little thing - including squirrels...
That husky is hilarious!!

I've never heard of dogs being debarked before. Is that a surgical thing or is it simply training. If it's the former, it does not seem right to me. They look a right pair of scallywags. I can guess how Rocket got his name.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It's a surgical procedure, unfortunately...a tiny incision is made in the throat and the voice box is scarred slightly. I think it was a difficult decision, but at the time they lived in an apartment and the neighbors had called the cops three times in one week because of the barking.
They are DEFINITELY Scallywags!!!!!
Bena's son, Tucker is an aerospace engineer and creates the software programs that control unmanned rockets. His wife, Tina, works for SpaceX- and pretty much every launch they've had has been her "baby"!

Oh.. Love the husky smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yah - he's great! I laugh every thime!
I don't like the idea of debarking a dog. You can train them not to bark but anything else would be cruel. These look like long haired Dachshunds which are delightful dogs
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I know. Sometimes you can train them, but it can take time. The first week she'd moved into her apartment the cops were called three times. And much of the barking was happening while she was at work- she lives alone. A fourth time and Digby would've been taken from her. There was just not enough time.
They are wire-haired dachshunds (I imagine the same?) - and they are a riot!
I love their expressions!
The talking husky is a gem.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Characters for sure!
I love that husky!
Great picture of the rascals, Ell', the Husky video is great.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Frank!
The husky makes me laugh every time!
How is a dog debarked? I have never heard of such a thing. Cute pups.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Unfortunately it's a surgical procedure - a tiny incision is made in the throat and the vocal chords are scarred slightly. She really had no choice- and he's not suffered for it.
They are just a riot those two!
I didn't know dogs could be de-barked...

Ha Ha

We both have 2 dogs on Caturday, Elizabeth.

Our mutts have been de-ticked...by Na...but I doubt that is similar to de-barked [which sounds like it has been skun].
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Are they not just cartoonish??!!!
Yes - a good poochurday! smile
It seems no one is a fan of the debarking- but it kept Bena from loosing Dibgy or her home - and he doesn't seem worse the ware at all! Pesky little dude! smile

Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Hollie - they are entertaining for sure! smile

That video really made me smile, Elizabeth smile. I am just catching up on a few archives after a long time away from Shutterchance. I must admit that being this close to my Apple Mac doesn't agree with me, so until I get my computer situation sorted out I am unlikely to be back regularly. The de-barking sounds very drastic, but I can understand the reasons behind it. I live two doors down from a very vocal husky, who barks the whole time his owners are out. I had to have a word with them the other day about it as I couldn't bear to hear a dog in such distress, and thank goodness today when they were out they let him have access to the living room, which was all he needed - just so he could watch through the window for their car coming back into the drive. He has been completely quiet today. My other neighbour threatened me with legal action because of Thula's barking, but actually he was just having a bad day because she doesn't bark excessively and, as Peter said, we need our dogs to bark if anything is amiss. I hope you're well and life is happy. Judging by Caturday yesterday it is smile
