WDW NEWS & Canine Link of the Week

~~~~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~o0o~~~~~~~~~~~~

Greetings to all our readers.  It's been a cold, snowy winter for many of us in northern areas, and that's been good for dog sports such as sled dog racing.  The famous Iditarod sled dog race gets underway this weekend using its normal starting site in Anchorage and restart in Willow, a sign of more normal snow and cold conditions this year.

Speaking of the Iditarod, the Seppala family has created  a Seppala Heritage Grant program in honor of Leonard Seppala, the famous sled dog driver who raced Siberian Huskies to wins in the All Alaska Sweepstakes and mushed the longest leg of the Nome Serum Run.

The grants will go to young people with a commitment to work with, train and race sled dogs, and who demonstrate the qualities of generosity of spirit, courage, integrity and love for the dogs, land and people of Alaska. The Iditarod Official site has details.

Our TalkDogs discussion site continues to be active -- with dog owners asking about helping an older Lab who was in a fight, achieving peace between Siberian Huskies and cats, whether dogs can have milk as adults, and more.  Can you help with answers?  Thanks to the generous readers who are offering their suggestions.   Feel free to add your question or comment.  Start here:
http://www.workingdogweb.com/TalkDogs.htm

Our updated DogBlog, or "Dog Web Log," highlights the great win at the Westminster Kennel Club show by Ch Darbydale's All Rise Pouch Cove, nicknamed Josh, described as "a Newfoundland's Newfoundland."  There are lots of links so you can meet the winner. And notes that Karen Ramstead and Wayne Curtis are running teams of Siberian Huskies in this year's Iditarod, a remarkable commitment to their working breed.

And, if you remember recent the research on dogs "reading" cues from people -- such as which container hides the dog food -- you'll want to read the latest work, also highlighted in DogBlog.  Dogs have now been compared not only to chimpanzes but also to wolves, New Guinea Singing Dogs, and dogs that grow up in kennels with limited amounts of handling.  Can any of them match well socialized dogs in using signals from people?

Canine Health Tips of the Week
WHY DO DOGS NEED PROTEIN?

With all the hype these days about "carbs" or carbohydrates in human diets, it seemed like a good time for a nutritional health tip -- with an emphasis on protein but including a bit about carbs in dogs' diets as well. 

Proteins are important not only for growth -- but also for a healthy immune system, making it important that dogs get the amino acids they need from good protein sources.  Learn about protein quality -- starting with the egg, rated the best and scored 100, and compared to various meat and vegetable sources of protein.

ARMED SERVICES DOGS GET PROTECTIVE "ARMOR"

Recognizing the great value of their working dogs, the U.S. armed forces are now providing "state of the art Kevlar vests" for their working dogs -- including those trained as partrol dogs, bomb-sniffing dogs and more.  These dogs complete hundreds of hours of training in order to serve in the military.

Some K-9 units in the States also are issuing the armor for their dogs that do work guarding base entrances and civilian airports or accompanying Secret Service missions.

Can You List All of Them?
DOGS SHOW MORE THAN 30 SIGNS OF STRESS

One of the best ways to prevent serious problems with dog behavior is to learn your dog's cues, especially those showing the dog is feeling stress.  A stressed dog can react to that stress with serious consequences.  The article also lists sources of stress -- and good ways to reduce stress for dogs.
