Boykin Spaniel

Short History of the Breed Boykin Spaniel – wikiFido-Dog Breeds, Rescues

The dog was originally found in 1911, outside a Methodist church after service by Mr. Alexander L. White (1860-1942). He was named “Dumpy”, but showed some aptitude for hunting. Mr. White took the dog to his friend, Mr. Whit Boykin (1861-1932), which is where the name came from. Mr. Boykin bred the dog with a dog named Singo, a female dog found abandoned in a train depot. Later other hunters would breed their ‘Boykins’ to different gun dogs, including Labaradors, Springer Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, Pointers, Setters and American Water Spaniels.

65 years later, the Boykin Spaniel Society was formed. Their mission was to document the breed in a registry to encourage breeding of purebred Boykins, and ultimately obtain national recognition in a recognized organization such as UKC and AKC.

The BSS applied to the AKC for recognition in the early years of formation. The BSS was told that they did not have complete documentation for AKC recognition but to re-evaluate in the future. Several years later, the BSS again took their case to the AKC. Upon being told that they would turn the registration part of their business over to the AKC, the BSS determined that the BSS would continue as a private individual company rather than joining the AKC as the Boykin Spaniel national parent club.

In the late 1990’s, a group of people who still desired AKC recognition formed the Boykin Spaniel Club & Breeders Assoc. of America WWW.BoykinSpanielClub.ORG
Although faced with opposition and a lawsuit over ownership of the breed instigated by the BSS, the Boykin Spaniel Club continued working for AKC recognition.

In July 2005, the club was named the Official AKC Parent Club of the Boykin Spaniel. Although they remained an AKC FSS breed at that time, the AKC felt the club had made progress to the point of allowing them to begin participating in AKC events. In January 2006, the breed was allowed to participate and earn titled in AKC Spaniel Hunt Tests. In July 2006, they became eligible to compete in AKC agility, obedience, rally and tracking.

Physical Description and Size
The Boykin is a small to medium sized spaniel. Their size was one of the traits that made them a desired hunting companion in the early 1900’s. Small boats filled with hunters and gear did not leave room for a large retriever. The Boykin was big enough to bring back the turkeys and ducks, but small enough that they were not a burden.

The Boykin Spaniel is a moderate dog in all ways. There are no extremes in their build or trappings and their form follows function. They are a breed originally developed as an obedient companion able to behave while riding to a hunt in a boat, but strong and quick to flush and retrieve. Gait is without wasted motion or interference.

The head is expressive with amber or yellow colored eyes that show enthusiasm and intelligence. Lips are close fitting without being heavy or flewed and the muzzle is balanced with the head. The ears are set on even with the top of the skull and reach the tip of the dog’s nose when lightly pulled forward.

Boykins are always a solid color with an occasional tiny white spot on the fore-chest or toes. Excessive white markings are to be avoided. The coat color variations have been described in many terms including liver, red, chocolate, or bronze. Longer hair and feathering may appear faded.

Coat length and texture vary with a waterproof, wavy coat of around an inch long being the most common. Some coats may be smooth or curly. They have light feathering on the ears and limbs. Coat and feathering may become matted if not brushed regularly.

Tails are docked. Dew claws are sometimes removed.

Like all hunting and sporting breeds, the Boykin Spaniel has boundless energy and enthusiasm. They have a very high activity level and need to be given exercise for their body and mind daily. They do require daily exercise and excell at dog sports such as flyball, agility, tracking and obedience.

They are quick to bond with people and are attentive, devoted pets that prefer to be by their owners side at all times. It is excellent with children and is an instinctive swimmer. They can sometimes be unresponsive to harsher training methods ( chock chains or shock collars) and do best with clicker or operant conditioning methods.

Dog Care
(exercise, grooming, diet)

Boykin Spaniels must be exercised daily. They are an active breed that was bred to hunt all day long, so it is expected that they will have an abundance of energy that needs to be burned off.

Grooming every few days is needed to keep the hair from matting, especially behind the ears.

Ear infections occur in some dogs regularly. Skin conditions are in some of the bloodlines. Both of these are possible symptoms of either allergies or thyroid/endocrine disorders; a vet can accurately diagnose the problem.

Most Boykin Spaniels do well on a high quality kibble diet.
Health Issues and Life Expectancy
The average Boykin Spaniel life expectancy is 14-16 years.

Several Boykin Spaniels are born with hip dysplasia each year. Puppies can be checked by a local veterinarian for this problem at the age of 2 human year old by anOrthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) x-ray or as young as 4 months old by aPennHIP exam. All breeding stock should receive either a passing PennHIP evaluation or an OFA certification prior to being bred.
The breed is also known to have eye related problem. All breeding stock should have a current (yearly) certificate from CERF.

Other lesser known problems include cardiac (heart), patella luxation, elbow dysplasia, under bite jaw, and skin problems.

The breed is recognized by CHIC (Canine Health Information Center) and individuals tested for hip, CERF and patellas as well as having permanent identification (micro-chip or tatto) will receive a CHIC number and certificate. However, obtaining a CHIC certification does not mean a dog has passed their evaluations; it is an indication that the owner was responsible enough to check for the health diseases in the Boykin Spaniel.

Paula Abdul and Tulip

Paula Abdul and TulipCelebrity: Paula Abdul

Dogs: Tulip

Breed: Chihuahua

I was reading a website on the celebrities and their pooches and the fetishes that they have fr them and I could not for heaven’s sake think of anything else other than the fact that how these celebrities were big enough to enjoy what they feel like and wish for. I mean its instant gratification for them. Not like us, common folks who keep mulling over buying something so insignificant for our children and the thought itself so excites us but when we realize that that particular thing is slightly or largely out of budget not only does it break your little one’s heart but you seem to die a little on the inside!

I have been in this kind of situations often and I have wondered to myself whether people who have the things that they wish for the second minute itself have any kind of patience in them. I mean would they be even able to wait for a couple of days until they can get the thing? I keep thinking about this as if it makes any difference to me. Silly me!

I want to be able to keep my children smiling always!

And that is precisely why I take up any kind of extra work or chore that needs to be done and pays decently. While my day job is stable, my additional work is mostly seasonal in nature.

My parents never could really afford great things for me and I grew up staring at toys that the rich boys in the neighborhood played with, remote control car, et al. I never wanted my children to stare at other’s toys and think them to be so poor that they could not afford it on their own. That would be heartbreaking.

So, I have tried my hand at everything!
From making deliveries to plucking fruits; from clearing up weeds to even helping in the chef’s kitchen, I have dabbled in everything. Recently, I came to know about trading online which is the next big thing. I knew not a word of trading but I was determined to learn t if it allowed a good scope for making that kind of money.

The software was called Crypto VIP Club the robot review is also done by me on the internet site. If you are interested in reading it I have attached the link at the end of this article. I have had a fantastic time trading on the particular software and ever since I have started trading, I have been able to make enough money to fulfill the aspirations I always housed for my children.

Common Mistakes Dog Owners Make When Selling Their Home

You love your dog; you may even think of him as a member of your family. He probably has his own toys, bed, food dishes and supplies. As normal as you think all of this is, your potential home buyer may not feel the same way. Believe it or not, some buyers have an aversion to dogs. Whether a buyer is afraid of them, allergic to them, or just doesn’t like the way dogs shed or smell, when you’re selling your home, you want to make sure it has an advantage over similar properties. You don’t want to lose a potential buyer at the front door because you have a dog.

Avoid the eight common mistakes of dog owners

There are eight mistakes that dog owners frequently make when they decide to sell their home. By avoiding these common errors you can increase interest in your home, avoid value loss, and increase the possibility that you will receive the highest possible selling price in your market.

1. Leaving your dog at home during open houses.

This is the biggest mistake sellers make when marketing their home. As a dog owner, it may be hard for you to imagine that a potential buyer might not be thrilled to be greeted at the door by your adorable pooch, but chances are good that buyers who don’t like dogs will leave your home without looking at it if they see a dog. Even if your dog is contained within a particular room (or left outside), he could still be a turnoff to buyers. At best, your dog is a distraction that may keep buyers from focusing on your home. The worst case scenario? Someone claims to have been bitten by your dog — and then you have a lawsuit on your hands. There are several options you can consider to keep your dog out of the house during open houses or property showings including arranging for friends or a dog sitter to take your pet for a few hours. As part of my dog-friendly real estate services, I work with sellers to make sure their dogs are out of the home during showings. I also arrange for agents and brokers to contact me before they show the home so I am aware when the dog needs to be removed.

2. Not cleaning daily.

When preparing to sell your home, vacuum every day. Dog hair can be a huge turnoff to potential buyers. Pay careful attention to the corners and edges of carpeting. Dog hair can build up in these areas and vacuums can’t always clean them thoroughly. Make sure you clean your furniture as well. Use a lint roller to clean cloth chairs and sofas. If your carpets have pet stains, have them professionally cleaned. If the stains remain even after professional cleaning, consider replacing the carpet. Buyers have stain radar and will automatically assume the worst if they spot them. There have been cases where pet urine has seeped into the floor and damaged the foundation. Pet stains are a red flag to realtors and buyers alike.

After all, the cleaning up and showing the house to realtors, you could earn quick more money by just sitting at home. Take a look at crypto VIP club software to do online trading. The customer care support is exceptional. They will patiently hear out your problems and guide you through your problem.  The team of experts is ready to assist you 24 hours a day.

Coming to the next point

3. Leaving dog droppings in the backyard.

You have the “For Sale” sign up, you’ve placed an ad in the paper, and the open house is scheduled yet you’ve forgotten one critical item: dog poop in the backyard. Nothing turns off a potential buyer faster than stepping in dog poop or seeing a backyard dotted with droppings. It’s easy to forget about poop piles in the backyard, especially during the winter. Make sure all of your grass areas are poop-free before any property showings and open houses.

4. Assuming your home has no dog smell.

Have you ever met a person who is wearing a sweater that has been sitting in a stuffy closet for the last six months? The person wearing the sweater does not notice the stuffy smell, but those around him do. The same is true of dog odors. You don’t want a potential buyer associating your home with dog odor. Even the most subtle dog odors can deter potential buyers, who might not even realize that that is why they don’t like your home. If you’re a dog owner, it’s safe to assume that dog odor is there even if you can’t smell anything. Thoroughly clean your home with scented cleaners (but be careful of air fresheners since some people are allergic). After you have cleaned thoroughly, ask a friend or neighbor to give your home a sniff test. Continue to clean and freshen your home daily until it sells. During open houses, I often boil cinnamon in water or simmer apple cider on the stove to cover any lingering odors.

5. Leaving evidence that a dog lives in the home.

Although legally you have to disclose if a dog lives (or has ever lived) in your home, it is best to hide all evidence that there is a dog on the premises. If you have removed the dog from the home during showings, it is also important to remove the dog’s beds, toys, crates and blankets. You want buyers to have a good first impression. Don’t risk turning off a potential buyer by leaving Fido’s water bowl in plain sight (even if it is a lovely designer dish). Buyers will look at pictures online to get a feel for the history of your home. As cute as your dog is, don’t include online property photos of him curled up on the couch in your cozy living room. Seal up doggie doors and remove pictures of your dog from the refrigerator, walls, and table tops.

6. Not Marketing Your Home to Other Pet Lovers.

If you have a dog-friendly home in a dog-friendly neighborhood, your home is uniquely suited to other dog owners. Use this fact to creatively market your home to the dog community.

7. Adding “dog is friendly” to the MLS.

Many real estate agents add the comment “dog is friendly” to the showing instructions for homes on the market. You might as well just say to some realtors, “Don’t show this home.” No one wants to deal with a dog they don’t know. Realtors are afraid they will not be able to control the dog and buyers are afraid that the dog will bite. Even though you say the dog is friendly, people immediately think about the last pit bull mauling article they read and how those owners also said their dog was sweet as pie.

8. Being home during property showings.

If you have to make a choice, it is certainly better to be home managing your dog during a showing rather than allow a potential buyer and their realtor to handle your dog on their own. However, buyers feel uncomfortable when sellers are present while they look at a home. They feel awkward about opening doors and asking questions. Being home with your dog during a showing is a good way to encourage a buyer to rush through your home in eagerness to leave and not give your home a second thought.

As a dog friendly Realtor, I help my clients avoid these common mistakes and also help keep their pets safe and happy during the sale of the property. Selling a home is a disruptive process and can be very traumatic to a dog. Working with a dog friendly Realtor can help ease the stress and make the transition to a new home much more peaceful for all members of the family.

Tatra Mountain Sheep Dogs

NEW POLISH IMMIGRANTS TO SCOTLAND On Friday 20th April 2007, three new immigrants from Poland arrived in Scotland.

Born and bred in and around Koscielisko in the Tatra mountains in Poland, Bilko, Dolly and Bella set off on the long journey to Scotland on Wednesday 18th April leaving behind lots of sunshine and many wild crocus in the mountain meadows. They enjoyed the long journey along the southern route through Poland, then along the autobahn in Germany to Ijmuiden, the port for Amsterdam in the Netherlands. They were fascinated by the different sights and sounds during their travels and their lack of German didn’t prevent them from making lots of friends along the way.

When I shifted home, I had no idea what I was going to do for a living. I had dabbled in a little of accountancy by assisting an attorney at law who specialized in corporate laws. I was once reading on how the cryptocurrency trading was taking the world by a storm and I knew it was my calling. Like a premonition. That was the day I realized that instinct is really something. I am really successful today because I heard my heart and traded on bitcoin code. Thank you bitcoin code for not letting me down!

They then had to endure a long overnight sea crossing to Newcastle but this was made much better for them by regular visits from the ship’s crew who were mainly Polish. Indeed, it is suspected that they were entertained most of the night by friendly Polish conversations.
On arrival in a cold and wet Newcastle, and having satisfied the authorities that they met all of the strict requirements involved in importing animals to the U.K., the three youngsters then had a short drive to their new home in West Lothian. They are now happily settled into their new surroundings and are taking regular English lessons so that they can understand their new family and friends.

Bilko, Bella and Dolly are the offspring of Polish Kennel Club champions and it is hoped that they will in due course produce many Scottish second generation “Owczarki Podhalanskie” as they are known in Poland or Tatra Mountain Sheepdogs in English speaking countries.
Their owner Mrs. Wanda Livingstone is not aware of any other dogs of this type in Scotland or elsewhere in the U.K. If there are any out there, she would be pleased to hear from the owners with a view to starting a U.K. breed club. She would also be happy to hear from anyone with a general interest in this particular breed of dog.

It is nice to play the different fields and possibilities in the trading market. CFD is a very interesting thing that helps a trader in benefitting from the difference in the trading values. CFD, Contract For Differences is the trick or tip for trading on the difference in the value of the assets or the commodities in the opening and closing values. This is a very beneficial way of trading since every asset or any tradable asset that comes to the market for trading has to come to an end, to a close at the closing hours of a trading day. And there is definitely going to be changed in their values and if there is a decrease the trader can take advantage of the changes or the variations. A glance at the full report on the same would make things clear to the traders.

Most of the traders, especially the novice traders and the newcomers to this field generally do not know about some of the complex trading assets in the market and one among them is this. This might be a little difficult and complex too for those who are yet to be on this platform. This is, of course, an unusual trading option but when understood well, it is definitely a simple and a very beneficial type. There are already many trading software that is following this and by being a part of such system, traders get an exposure to use them and benefit from them.  CFD type is actually a very simple and easy trading method when understood properly. This is slowly picking up the pace and there are only a few traders in this in the present day trading and it is expected that there would be more in the coming days.

Trading on CFD is very similar to trading on stocks and other trading options and the best part is there is nothing extra demanded by this type of trading. The best part about this trading is that the trader does not spend on buying stocks but he only takes advantage of the difference in the opening and closing prices.

So making money alone should not be the motive of traders but it should be playing and making safe profits. Qprofit System is not a scam and safe profits are possible here.

Really glad you stopped by!

About Me!

My birth Mom and four of my brothers and sisters arrived at the Southside Animal Shelter in Indianapolis, Indiana sometime in August 2004. We were rescued.
Johann as a Pup
The shelter folks named me Ben (on the left) and my brother Jerry, funny huh? My new momThey think I was born on June 25th, 2004, but they don’t know where, and that I’m a sheltie. renamed me Johann, after Johann Sebastian Bach.

My mom raised us well, And all of us were adopted to wonderful, but different families. That doesn’t make me sad, because as of September 3, 2004 I have a great new home and two new brothers Wolfie and Wiggy, and as of March 2006, a new sister, Gracie.

My favorite things!
