DHOLE: The wild dogs of India and Indonesia



The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs
 THE DHOLE:

The wild dog found in India and in Indonesia, has been taken for a Dingo, but it is much fiercer and virtually untameable. It lives in the jungle and hunts by night. It resembles the  Malinois, or the Belgian sheepdog.

It has shown itself to have great courage. It lives in groups and can give a tough fight to the tiger, sending it clambering up a tree like a cat. It rarely attacks human beings, but does not appear to be afraid of people.

THE SIMIAN JACKAL OR FOX:

In Africa, and more precisely in the high montane grasslands of Ethiopia, lives the Simian jackal or fox. which resembles the Greyhound. It is, in fact , thought that it made its way from Ethiopia to Egypt, where it became the forbear of all modern Greyhounds.

THE MASTIFF OF PHY QUOC   

On the island of Phy Quoc, in the Gulf of Thailand, lives a sturdy Mastiff- like dog, in a semi-wild state. Its distinctive feature is that the coat along its backbone and up to its shoulders is lo0nger than elsewhere on its body, with the fur lying in the opposite direction to the rest of the coat, forming a sort of mane. The dog from Phy Quoc is believed to be the ancestor of RHODESIAN RIDGEBACK, by now a thoroughly domestic breed.

It too has a ridge of hair along its back, running in the opposite direction to the rest of its coat

WILD DOGS : DINGO OF AUSTRALIA

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

Wild Dogs : DINGO OF AUSTRALIA

Captain William Dampier, one of the first people to set his foot on Australian soil in 1688 wrote,' My men spied two or three wolf - like creatures. They were starving hungry, and skeletal  to the point where they looked like skin and bones.' What Captain William and his men saw was the Australian DINGO, the only original non-marsupial mammal of the continent.

When early Europeans arrived with their livestock, the ravenous dingoes attacked the flocks with such zeal that for centuries they became the shepherd's main enemy. From the very outset, the dingoes showed no fear  towards domestic dogs, and behaved with them as if they were kith and kin.

The dingo lives in small groups of five or six individuals belonging to a single family; in rare cases these packs may number up to a hundred animals. Australian aborigines  keep them for hunting purposes, each tribe having a couple of them.

The cubs can be found in the hollows of trees and are reared with a great deal of loving care. The Aborigines let the dingoes sleep in their huts, and  feed them with fish and meat.

Dingoes act timidly towards people, which is why the Aborigines never punish them; at worst they will simply scold them while they are hunting.

The dingo will mate with the dog and the offsprings are fertile. When they were mated with the English Sheep-dog or Scottish Collie, the outcome developed into the KELPIE, the highly intelligent Australian sheep-dog.


Like all the wild dogs, the dingo does not bark. The dingo is smaller and lighter than the wolf. The colour varies from tawny to straw to black. The feet and the tip of the tail are invariably white .

DOGS in LAW

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

DOGS IN LAW


The Foo Dog or Buddhist Lion dog was an imaginary 'keeper of the Jewel of Law', usually portrayed in porcelain or wood with a ball under one foot. It has a lion's mane, shaggy tail, and a head like a Pekingese.

9th century Dog Laws
Alfred the Great 'taught even falconers and dogkeepers their business and made laws specifying compensation if bitten by a dog. Welsh laws of the same period mention three kinds of cur (Mastiff, House and Shepherd's).

10th Century Dog Laws
A king's buck hound or covert-hound was valued at one pound and a greyhound at six score pence. In 1080 a greyhound was worth half a buck hound.

11th century Dog Laws
No mean person may keep grey hounds. Before the time of Magna Carta, the punishment for destroying a grey hound was the same as that for murdering a man.

The forest laws of Henry II
Only the privileged few could keep grey hounds or spaniels in the royal forests. Farmers and substantial free holders could keep mastiffs for the defense  of their homes, but only if the dogs were disabled so that could not chase and seize deers.

Shogun Tsunayushi
The Dog Shogun  of the late 17th century passed a law that all dogs must be addressed politely and treated kindly. He ended up caring for a hundred thousand dogs himself at the cost of the exchequer. The resulting inflation brought about the introduction of an unpopular tax levied on farmers.

Clothes Dogs

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


COMFORTER :

Small spaniels were used to cure human disorders; 'comforters' were pressed against the afflicted part, keeping it warm and sometimes effecting a cure simply because the patient believed it was possible.


DOG FUR :

Dog fur is generally thought much too inferior to be worn, except perhaps as a travel rug. But samoyed skins were worn as clothing by 18th century Siberians, and the coat clippings of Tibetan terriers used to be mixed with yak hair and woven into a soft, semi- waterproof cloth. Wool from poodles, Old English sheep dogs etc is sometimes spun and knitted by enthusiasts.

A very small dog from the Elizabethan times up to the 19th century, said to be small enough to be carried in a lady's glove, but in fact applied to any beagle under 10 inches high.

Toy terrier small enough to slip into a muff and keep its owner's hands warm.

POWDER PUFF :

In hairless breeds, the occasional pup which is born with normal hair and teeth.

Shakespeare's description of the dog he used for hunting waterfowl on the Avon, probably an English water spaniel.

DOGGIE SUPERSTITIONS

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs


SUPERSTITIONS


HOWLING :

It is a widespread superstition that a dog howls when there is a death. To quote Longfellow:

In the rabbinical book it saith:
 The dog howls when with icy breath,
Great Sammael, the angel of death,
Takes thro' the town his flight.

MANDRAKES:

In medieval bestiary, the only way to capture a mandrake root ( to which all sorts of magical powers were attributed) was by using a wolfhound to tear it from the earth.

OMENS :

An ancient Kaffir superstition was that bad luck should be expected if a dog leaped on to the roof of a hut. The Damara of south west Africa dreaded meeting a dog with one foot like that of an ostrich- a sign of impending death.

DOCKING :

Two thousand years ago docking a dog's tail was thought to prevent madness. The practice was encouraged in more recent times by taxation ( A bob tailed dog was a working dog)

DISCORD :

The Greeks thought that if a stone which had been bitten by a dog was dropped into wine, those who drank it would fall out amongst themselves.

My GUIDE, AND MINE OWN FAMILIAR FRIEND

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs





GUIDE DOGS 










During world war I a German doctor noticed that a German Shepherd was very caring towards a blind patient, and he began experimental training to see if dogs could be used as guides for the blind.  Mrs. Dorothy Harrison, a wealthy American who bred Alsatians, saw the German training centre and wrote about it. Morris Frank , a blind American was inspired by her article and contacted Mrs. Harrison, who then set up L'Oeil Qui Voit in Vevey, Switzerland(1928) and also established the first guide dog school in USA. Morris Frank was the first guide dog owner in America, with his famous BUDDY.


In England, Mrs. Muriel Crooke, a dog breeder and trainer in Liverpool, and Mrs. Rosamund Bond, a breeder and exhibitor of Alsatians, met Mrs. Harrison and then began their own training classes at Wallasey. The classes eventually led to the formation of the GUIDE DOGS FOR BLIND ASSOCIATION in England.


BREEDS GENERALLY PREFERRED AS GUIDES FOR THE BLIND:


1.Labrador Retrievers
2.Golden Retrievers
3.German Shepherds
4.Collie
5.Dalmatian

The compulsive chaser

The more I see of humans, The more I love Dogs

THE COMPULSIVE CHASER


Some dogs are compulsive chasers. They enjoy running after small children - barking at them or even intending to bite. Occasionally the child falls and hurts himself and is scared half to death. The more the child screams and the faster he runs, the more persistent the dog is in his chase.

The performance of the dog is the master's  responsibility. He might be legally subject to arrest and conviction for owning a dog which is a public nuisance.

Children : You must catch the dog at the beginning of this tendency. It is the best for the puppy to grow up with young kids so that they become fast friends. At the slightest suggestion of his chasing a child, even if the puppy is 3 or 4 months old, he MUST be punished.  Be STRICT with your dog. Keep close supervision over him.

TRAINING :

  In training him not to run after children, take him out on a rope 30 to 50 feet long, and when he attempts to go after a child, jerk him back strongly so that it pulls him off his feet. You have to reprimand him severely and continuously. There should be constant supervision on your part when you allow the dog to play with children until he loses the desire to chase children.

Other Animals : The three most common objects of a dog chase are poultry, sheep and of course cats. The problem aggravates when the dog indulges in killing of other animals and gets the " taste of blood ". It then becomes extremely difficult to rehabilitate him. Most probably for the dog this is mere sports. He tends to enjoy his speed and dexterity with subsequent kill.

To train him not to attack and kill, you should make him familiar with the cattle and poultry right from his puppy stage. Again, close supervision is a must. Most of the dogs love to chase cats. This habit can be stopped if the dog grows up with with a kitten in the house. My personal experience with my Irish Setter shows this to be the effective method! They grew up to become the best of friends!!

There are many methods for curing the bloodthirsty habit. One method of curing a dog of killing chicken is to whip him over the head with the dead chicken and then tie the dead chicken around his neck until it practically rots off.

Cars  :  Car chasing is a sporting event for dogs; probably a primitive instinct which made them chase game for food. Nowadays chasing the big things on wheels is a substitute for the food finding instinct. Some breeds like the Collie are compulsive chasers , probably due to their herding instinct.

This habit is dangerous and can prove to be fatal if not checked at an early stage. One method of curing this habit is to get a friend who is a stranger to the dog drive by with a whip. As the dog approaches the car, he has to let him have it. Several sharp blows to the body should impress on him that there is pain associated with chasing cars.
