Where the deer privately owned???

Most are owned by the people of the state they live in.

Unless they have a 12 foot fence you are taking the chance of killing someone.

Have you ever seen a 6 year old boy after a deer went thought the windshield???

In all honesty I have not either......

The cassette was closed.

Great pictures Latetotheparty! I had to chuckle because my pup sleeps the same way and I can't figure why she doesn't wake up with a humdinger of a headache.

But it makes me wonder...I have never seen her completely pooped before...do dogs ever really get tired?
Yes. I had a rotty that would go on horseback rides with me. We would do some pretty enduring rides and a few times she just pooped out and I had to put her across the saddle and ride her the rest of the way back.

Jasper, my dachshund corgi mix, tires out after some moderate exercise...he's lazy and sleeps a lot. red, the terrier mix is a nut and he never gets tired! he's still a puppy, just over a year old and he can run around all day long and still have energy. occasionally he will pass out and sleep but the second you move, he's awake and following you to make sure he hasn't missed anything. I'm sure he'll mellow out eventually

great pics latetotheparty...the sleeping one is hilarious!

Some of dogs getting tired or, not would also depend on their food.

Rip eats very high protein food.

The same thing many race dogs eat.

Perhaps you need to also address the new comers?

When coming over, we have an excitable dog. When entering our home. Please ignor her. No touch, no talk and no eye contact with her until she is calm.

She is high energy...and always will be. You could post a sign at your door:

With the dogs:

No touch
No talk
No eye contact

Thank you in advance for your help.

...just a suggestion

Make that ignore. (Quoting myself? Nope, spell check...lol)

LTTP, just saw the pics...bahahahahaha! Spanky does the head hang over the pillow onto the floor but that is a MUCH smaller drop off. He's also a light sleeper. If I get up (even for the bathroom) he's close behind to see if he is needed for assistance. (Thanks buddy, I got that covered!)

Diesel is my heavy sleeper. Like Davey long legs, he can be petted, moved and rearranged and will sleep or stay put. Snores heavily even has sleep apnea. He can get a little spastic and kick violently as he is trying to suck in air. When I hear him stop breathing, I will stroke and talk to him, encourage him to breath. Yea, I know he's sleeping...but still. It's got to be pretty frightening for a dog to wake up not breathing, ya know?
