Dog Action

belgium shepherd

After yesterdays post on Larry I decided to find other options quickly. I called up the guy who has the British Bulldog and I will be meeting with him today to check out his puppies. I was reading up on the Bulldog and it seems we have things in common, we both hate excercising and we both enjoy lying on the couch all day. So the Bulldog seems more compatible with my lifestyle then a German Shepherd. But the Bulldog is a small dog and I am looking for something alot bigger.

My first choice would be a Belgium Shepherd (pictured above) and yesterday night I contacted 3 different breeders to see if I could purchase one directly off them and have them ship it to Kuwait. Two of the breeders are in Belgium so it hopefully is possible to have them ship me a dog to Kuwait.

I also called my cousin up asking if he knew anyone that sold dogs, he told me there was a shop in Jabriya that only sold dogs and that there is a dog school after the Fintas bridge that also sold dogs. So tonight I am going to pass by both and see what they have.

I checked the Paws Kuwait website and found a young German Shepherd which is looking for a home but sadly its a female and I am not interested in getting a female dog.

Finally a friend of mine told me his friends dog just had puppies and is looking to give the pups away. He doesn’t know what breed they are but will call me today and tell me.

So hopefully I will find a dog that I want that will cost me alot less then KD1000.

Larry the German Shepherd

Post by Mark

Me and Nat have been wanting to get a dog for some time now and we finally decided on what to get, a German Shepherd. We found a British Bulldog for sale (KD350 if anyone is interested) but in the end me and Nat want something much bigger. I have always loved German Shepherds, my cousin had two and I used to love playing with them. German Shepherds are very friendly and very loyal dogs who are mostly trained as police dogs. Today I called up a guy who imports pure bred German Shepherds from Eastern Germany, he has two dogs for sale, Larry and Ben. Ben is 2 years old while Larry is 11 months old. I was interested in Larry but I wasn’t able to see him because he is currently being trained at a school and has 2 more weeks before graduation. I met Ben and he was amazing, the dog is huge and EXTREMELY friendly. He couldn’t stop running around and jumping wanting to play with someone and when you called his name he would run towards you and start licking you. I saw pictures of Larry and he looked even finer and according to the owner even more playful. I also was able to see pictures of Larrys family, his mother and father, his grand parents and his grand grand parents. I saw his whole family tree and they all looked great. I am totally convinced about getting him except for one thing, the owner wants a thousand fucking dinars for him! Nat thinks we should just charge it on our Visa card but a thousand dinars for a dog?! I think thats just crazy, its like hmmm a Quad core 2.5ghz PowerMac or Larry? Now I have to quickly find her another option or else I am going to have to get Larry. I met a kid at Ace Hardware today who had a puppy with him, when I asked him where he got it from he told me Amazon.com! So now I need to check that out…

Nintendogs

nintendogs

I finally found a reason to get a Nintendo DS, Nintendogs. When I first heard about the game I thought it was stupid, when I saw pictures of the game I thought it was stupider, but then I watched a video of the game in action and I fell in love. Nintendogs is basically like an advanced version of the Tagamotchi pet. You get to choose your dog from the kennel and they you help it grow. A while back our family pet dog died, he was a daschund. The video I watched of the game involved a daschund playing with bubbles. Basically the kid playing with the game was using a bubble blower to play with the dog in the game and the dogs reactions to the bubbles were exactly like my real life dog. The on screen dog jumped around trying to bite the bubbles and then when the bubbles hit him he started to rub his paw on his face! Seeing that brought nice memories and I knew I had to get the game, I am going to resurrect my dead dog back to life inside the game!

I just found a good deal for a DS bundle on Amazon. A silver Nintendo DS bundled with a Spiderman 2 game and a Pro Gamers Kit (includes a Aluminum Case Games Cases, Earphones, Car adaptor Screen Lenses and Neck Strap) for only $129. The Nintendogs (Dachshund version) for $29 also. Now I can’t wait for the game to come. [Link]

Videos of the game available on IGN

Our Sick Doggy

Post by Mark

chips

We called the vet today, turns out the reason why Chips our family dog is sick and losing weight is because he is old and not in good health. The vet is recommending we put him to sleep, and thats what we will probably end up doing. He has been in the family for over 8 years now. He isn’t perfect, no one outside our family seems to like him but thats because he doesn’t like them (he has psychological issues). I think the day before we put him to sleep I will set up an open buffet for him with all his favorite food. He will have an unlimited supply of cheese, french fries, burgers and chocolate.

I was suggesting after we put Chips to sleep that we get him stuffed. That way we can still have him in the house. My parents are totally against it though and they wouldn’t want it in their house. Nataly also doesnt want it in our apartment since she thinks the ghost of Chips will end up haunting our place.

Update: Just got back from the vet awhile ago. We put him to sleep…

Vet Needed

Anyone know of a good vet? Preferably one that would come over (Home Delivery). Our family dog has lost a lot of weight recently, he is starting to look like one of those Somali kids in the Feed Africa posters…

The other day at Virgin, Nataly showed me this book called Bunny Suicides, I was about to get it but then changed my mind the last minute. Good thing I did, seems someone scanned the book page by page and posted it online. Really funny stuff here is the link.

Update: huh?! qualitynet is blocking the link above. Sucks..
