I don't think "they" pulled Nev's puzzles. They FILTERED one of his puzzles because someone complained that they found it offensive, and Nev then deleted his ulangariver account in protest. (Actually, I think it takes more than one complaint, but that may have changed.)

@bevpuzzler8 Hi, Bev. I am trying to remember which of Nev's puzzles it was. I DO remember commenting back to this guy, but I will have to think a little more. I do know that if the pull Nev's puzzles AGAIN, then there is something wrong in Jigidi Land. If you could refresh my memory as to which puzzle it was, maybe I could remember the name of said wise guy. I wonder if Nev could send the puzzle to just me, would it help? I think it might, but how can I get his puzzles if he sends it to me? Sherry

Hi Sherry
I saw your response yesterday to the cartoon that Nev. posted and then a wise guy made a stupid comment and you retorted, and kindly, i must say :))
I noticed this morning when I opened my comp. that Nev's puzzle was jerked.
Right after your retort yesterday I went to his profile and it was a picture of a dark guy.
I only remember his last name as Mustafa, but I cannot find that profile again. I told Nev, it could be a plant. Did you maybe remember the name or the icon?
I would be unhappy if the PTB give him the heave. It was the guy's fault !!! Bev.

Sounds like things turned out well for all. Thanks for replying. :-)

Hi, Bluestockings. If you remember, I told you how unmanageable Charlie was and that we just couldn't handle him anymore. I registered him with an adoption/rescue group and he was listed there for about three months, but no one responded. So we worried over the situation and finally had to send him to the Humane Society--which is a No-Kill facility. We went to their website regularly to see if he was still there. He was listed for maybe two months, then one day he wasn't there. We called and they told us that he had been adopted. I know nothing about the people who adopted him, but everyone is vetted very well before being allowed to adopt, so I feel confident that he is in good hands. Thank you for your interest and concern about my boy. Sherry

@jojosmom417 Do you mind my asking, what happened with Charlie?

jojosmom417

@mariolyn, Thank you for your congratulations! I never seem to remember just when I joined Jigidi, but I am SO GLAD I found the website!! I have met so many wonderful people here that I otherwise would never have had the opportunity to meet. So I thank you sincerely for reminding me of the date--which will be here again before you know it. Have a blessed week and try to stay safe from all the viruses and winter storms!! Sherry

Forgive my missing CONGRATULATIONS on your 10th Jigidi anniversary last April 1
Good to see you keeping it up.

Hi, Ellen. You are right--frustration has set in. I have a fenced front and back yard and he loves to run, as @Rainrider mentioned. We can throw his toys and he loves to run after them, but he won't bring them back--and then wonders why playtime has stopped.

Bluestockings, we have been considering whether we should keep Charlie or not. Thank you for the rescue groups websites. I probably will look into them. The main problem as I see it is that Charlie needs to get out and play and run, etc. I, on the other hand, am 72 years old and have debilitating arthritis and can barely get around with a walker. So you see the dilemma. And now we have some deciding to do.Thank you, one and all, for your input. It really helps. Sherry

Hounds of all kinds are hardwired to run, and be extra active. Given the chance they would run for miles, and then ask for more. one thing that helps is having a friend to play with, or if they like water, (many do) get him a pool deep enough to swim, that will let him work off some of that energy.
I do wish you and him the best, hounds are great dogs, easy to teach, and love to make their people happy. They do however become board easily, toys that make them think help with that. Like the ones you put a treat in, and they have to find a way to get it out.

Bluestockings

@jojosmom417 Not every dog is suitable for every family. You rescued this guy from a life outdoors, living on frozen possum, and if he's too much for you there's no shame in helping him find a good home with someone else. Consider surrendering him to a Plott rescue organization, where he can be adopted by someone with big-hound experience and an active lifestyle.

Our previous dog's adolescence almost killed me. But we lived across the street from a huge park, and there I met a wonderful couple who picked up dogs from their homes in a van and took them to the park on "pack walks." I signed Rusty up. Every day when the van pulled up across the street he went crazy with joy. When he came back home he was very mellow. :-)

After he died at the age of 11, we knew we couldn't go through puppyhood and adolescence again. We filled out an application with an Airedale rescue group and soon found ourselves with a 5-year-old who is now living the good life. We could not love him more.

I know the sound of frustration, Sherry. Is your yard fenced? Does he chase things you throw, like balls?

Don't forget that there will always be variables in size, even among certifiable pure bred dogs. My Seal and Green are from the same breeding, yet Seal is about 3 inches shorter than Green.

Thank you Putter and Bluestockings for your help with my boy. We had to distract Charlie with treats while I measured him tonite. I'm sure he would benefit from socialization with other dogs, but everyone I know has tiny but mouthy (read: Chihuahuas) dogs and Charlie would simply stomp on them. I know it's going to be a long 2 years or so before he finally settles down and becomes the good dog I know he is, under all that ornery. I just hope I can hold out and not kill him (or myself!).

Bluestockings

Sorry, I didn't give you "this page."

Bluestockings

That does seem large. It seems you may have a purebred Plott hound, although of course he could be a mix of a Plott hound and another large hound. From this page, they do sound like a handful. My experience is with terriers (we have an Airedale, our third, who is about the size of your dog); we've found that spending a lot of time with the dog helps make him a good citizen, and a tired dog is a good dog. If no one in your family is a hiker or runner, maybe you could send him to "camp" a few days per week. I think it would be good for you to connect (maybe online) with other hound owners for advice, moral support, and possible play dates. Good luck!

PutterDutt

Great analogy, Sherry! :o)

jojosmom417

@Bluestockings We finally got his measurements tonite and he is 26 inches from the top of his shoulder to the floor, and 37 inches from the tip of his nose to his hips. I don't know if that seems large, but when he goes past you and nearly knocks you over, it's like a big, green semi passing you on the highway. Well, thanks for your interest, and please let me know what you think. Sherry

jojosmom417

@Bluestockings 2 1/2????? I won't live that long!!! He's a wild and crazy guy and he comes up with something new to do or to tear up every single day!!

Bluestockings

@jojosmom417 I asked about size because I'm still trying to figure out if he's pure Plott hound, not that it makes any difference. He's young yet—he should calm down a bit when he's about 2 1/2.

PutterDutt

Measure from the nose to the top of his hip bones, then measure from the top of his shoulder blades to the floor. A good way to keep him steady for measuring is to have one person doing the measuring while another person puts their thumb on his nose (not blocking the nostrils) and rotating the thumb in small circles. That distracts the dog (works on horses, too) so you don't have to wrestle.

jojosmom417

@PutterDutt, Ellen am I correct in assuming the measurements I listed in my previous post are correct? And whaqt about his tail? Do I include it in the nose-to-whatever measurement?

jojosmom417

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments about my Charlie. Some days he's just as sweet as can be, and other days I swear I'm going to give him to the Trashmen!!! Bluestockings, we tried tonite to get measurements, but he wouldn't hold still (he's a Wigglebutt), so we will try again tomorrow. I guess I need to measure from his shoulder to the floor, and from his butt (that's a technical term) to his nose? Is that right? I welcome any and all suggestions and comments.

PutterDutt

I love this picture of your boy, Sherry and also what Heicel said!

'Life without a dog is possible, but senseless:' How true! Thanks for sharing!
