Your Friday “Awwww”

Born to be police dogs:CBC News - Manitoba - Puppies born in police cruiser_1253922038564

Eight puppies were born in the back of a Winnipeg police car while the officers were responding to a call on Thursday.

The officers were on regular patrol when they noticed a couple of dogs wandering in traffic near Mountain Avenue and McPhillips Street around 2:30 a.m.

They were able to coax the dogs into the rear of their cruiser, luring them with food purchased at a local convenience store.

While on their way to take the dogs to an animal shelter, the officers responded to a call for assistance in regards to a man with a gun seen in the 800 block of Redwood Avenue, just a few blocks away.

The officers were on the scene of the weapons incident for about four hours while the dogs remained in the back of the cruiser.

After the incident was over, the officers returned to their car to discover the female Labrador/Shepherd cross had given birth to eight puppies.

All together now:  Awwwwww!

    Now if only they could get a pregnant cat to give birth in their patrol car! 😆 😆 😆 😆

    I find it interesting that there were TWO goggies. Ob/Goggy? Midgoggy?

    RB “Goggie” – that’s cute! Squeeee!

    That’s the standard spelling in Ihasahotdog and Icanhazcheezburger

    Really, I never even noticed that. Sooooo cute!

    I guess spay and neuter rules don’t apply to them? Obviously they have never visited a shelter and watched the homeless dogs interact with the walls? Not a pretty picture. I guess they found homes for all their dogs, but what about the homes that these puppies are now going to take from all the older dogs lonely in the shelters. All dogs grow up! 🙂

    Memyself – Of course, and I should have added a disclaimer I guess: Always spay & neuter your pets!

    But I guess they were strays… I adopted a cat last year who was a stray, and she was pregnant too. Now I have 3 cats 😯 but they’re all spayed & neutered. No more kittens!!!

    Actually they weren’t strays – the article goes on (perhaps a later update) to say the dogs’ owner claimed them and the puppies at the shelter and was fined for letting them run loose.

    Something I wonder about. If people did spay and neuter their pets, all breeding would be by breeders and puppy mills – two groups that have not done as good a job as natural selection.

    You’re right about that, RB. I don’t like to be categorical about these things, because in spite of overpopulation problems, there’s still a huge demand for pet animals.
    Problem is, too many people believe that these “pets” come in certain specific formats: e.g. cats are kittens, and they don’t come with claws; and every dog is a member of a specific breed.
    I get a bit happy when people adopt animals the old-fashioned way: from a neighbour, a person down the street, as a stray or even from a shelter.

    I’m thirding this point of view from RB and BN.

  13. 13 brebis noire Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 8:20 am

    Hi mouthy! I’ve been wondering where you were! Hope all is well with you.

  14. 14 mouthyorange Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 12:37 pm

    Thanks, brebis.

    I’ve been lurking. The crazy stuff from the States was starting to freak me out, and I didn’t want to engage with it so much, at least for awhile. Also, I am very worried about what’s happening in Canada and felt a need to pay closer attention with the energy I’ve got while Harper tries to engineer another election win for himself. And maybe I just needed to be quiet for awhile.

    But I have missed you guys, too. A lot! A few times I nearly put out a message to that effect. Nearly sent JJ an email, too. But just stayed quiet in the end.

  15. 15 JJ Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 12:55 pm

    We missed you too… I noticed you weren’t around, but figured it was because of the reasons you cited. The crazy is getting pretty bad stateside.

    Anyway, welcome back 8)

    JJ – Thanks! And well, you figured right. I’m a pretty sensitive sort, y’know? I sometimes need to tune stuff out, or at least tune it down, for awhile.

    I know you understand. You’re always threatening to take breaks … 😉

    I may be in and out for a bit, but you guys can fairly surely count on that I’m lurking if you can’t see me!

    I’ve had 2 + 1/2 + 1/2 dogs in my life. (Two dogs ultimately went to other homes) and none have been purebred, although they seemed to be two-breed crosses.

    They seem for the most part to have picked up the best of their parents typical traits, without health problems. Sebastien, for example, isn’t nearly as OCD as most border collies.

Wait. What?
