Australian dog receives police honours for keeping lost child safe

Sydney (AFP) - A deaf and partially blind dog that kept a lost three-year-old girl safe in Australian bushland overnight was awarded police honours Saturday after leading rescuers to the child.

Emergency services began a search on foot and from the air for Aurora Friday after the young girl wandered off into bushland on a rural property in Queensland state.

Seventeen-year-old blue heeler Max stayed with the child through a rainy night before leading family and rescuers to her Saturday morning after more than 15 hours in the wild.

"Leisa (the child's grandmother) heard Aurora's voice, found Max first, and then Max led her to Aurora," Leisa's partner Kelly Benston said, adding the dog was partially blind and deaf.
..............
"For keeping her safe until she was found, you're now an honorary police dog!," police posted alongside a picture of family pet.

To the relief of her distraught family the three-year-old was in good health, rescuers said, suffering just minor scratches.<SNIP>

That Blue Heeler does not surprise me. That is one of the smartest breeds that I know.

My former father-in-law was a rancher with cattle and sheep. He had Blue Heelers to manage the herds. They did an amazing job, responding to his whistled commands. They trained new dogs. They were also very friendly dogs.

Most city families could not keep a Blue Heeler. They belong on the ranch where they can get high amounts of exercise.

I've got some shopping questions for our expert dog lovers.

Any experience with Wisdom Panel 3.0 Breed Identification DNA Test Kit?

If your dog loves hanging out your car window, do you put doogles on him/her to protect eyes? E.g.
https://woof.doggles.com/shop-for-dogs/eyewear/

Do you use a dog safety belt, and if so, which one for a large dog that won't prevent his/her head from sticking out the window? (Obviously, that head/window thing is very important to my dog.)

TIA

Back before cars were air conditioned and back when parents happily constantly smoked, we kids used to keep car windows down or partially down if we or our pets thought breathing was an attractive option. So my Boston Terrier gave in to his inclination to chase a rabbit when we were on a tamale expedition on a slow dirt rosd. Out the open window he went. Neither he nor we was hurt. Was this a problem?

The rabbit was too fast for my city dog. The dog was lucky not to encounter a rattlesnake. The tamales were good.

There are a couple of islands off Victoria where they use dogs to protect penguins. The dogs keep the foxes at bay and the penguin population had increased because of it. The story of the original penguin guard dog was made into a charming little film, Oddball.

So about my dog seat belt question... I found this Hawaii regulation.
It could also get you ticketed. A little known law specifies you can be fined $97 dollars for driving with a dog in your lap and $57 if the animal's loose in a moving vehicle.

Police said most dog owners don't know about this rule.

That’s like the law that makes it illegal to obscure your rear license plate. Most back mount bike racks violate this.

So do license plate holders advertising car dealerships or sororities, and those totally idiotic smoked plastic bubble covers. The law says all the writing and decals must be visible, not just the actual tag number.

Apparently, the 7 dog years to 1 human year equation is false, but the search for an equation is very old.
Although the origins of the seven-year myth is unknown, people have been trying to find a good way to calculate dog years in human years since the 1200s.

One of the earliest examples of this is an inscription at Westminster Abbey that dates back to the year 1268 and calculates that one human year is equivalent to nine dog years, which was part of some strange way to calculate the end of the world in the 1200s.
Here's a new chart.

This is per-state as far as I can tell, but Mass has the same thing.. about every five years the state police decide to enforce it, and all the car dealers have to change their license plate frames.. Cue Captain Renault...

Hilarious partners in crime. Gives "get away" a whole new meaning.

Maryland K9 Officer Refuses To Go To Work Until He Gets Belly Rub
May 1, 2018 at 10:40 am

GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WJZ) — Jango, the police dog, was having a case of the Tuesdays last week when he refused to get into his deputy’s car to go to work.

Cassie Costin, of Glen Burnie, captured the moment when her husband, an Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s deputy, tried to get Jango into his police car, but the dog refused.

Deputy Ryan Costin can be seen in the video asking Jango to get into the backseat of the cruiser, but Jango lies on the ground instead waiting for a belly rub.

Cassie explained she received a text from her husband after he walked out the door to go to work saying he was ready to head out but Jango was not having it. That was when she glanced outside the window of her home to see her husband trying to convince the dog to get in the car and started to film the scene.

Queen Elizabeth Spotted With Very Special Wedding Guest

En route to Windsor, the Queen had a very special travel buddy

As the royal family gathers in Windsor ahead of tomorrow’s royal wedding, Queen Elizabeth II was spotted with one very important wedding guest when she arrived. In a video posted by Daily Mail online, the Queen can be seen in the backseat of a Range Rover and sitting right next to the groom’s gran, peeping out of the window, is an adorable beagle.

It’s pretty likely that this precious pup is Guy, the beloved rescue dog of Meghan Markle. When Markle made her move across the pond to join her betrothed, Guy came with her while Markle’s other rescue dog stayed behind in the States with close friends.

Fred, a 10-year-old labrador has become "dad" to the baby birds at Mountfitchet Castle, a tourist attraction near Stansted Airport in Essex.

The ducklings' mother was nowhere to be found when staff noticed them waddling around alone, but "Fred... immediately took to them and has been babysitting ever since."

They have even followed him into the castle moat for a swim, staff said.
:snippity:
The ducklings sleep in the dog basket with Fred and follow him around as though he was their mother.

I'm a hot wet mess...
Putting the older Scnoodle down tomorrow. She's just reached that age it's cruel not to.

Her daughter, the younger schnoodle is perfect and if only she could stay 8 years old forever...

it was shared decision of the entire family allow what unfair in life, that these loyal loving creatures pass too soon..
I hate this.... it feels like betrayal..
