Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default WT steps inside

Either Kim or I feed WT whenever he shows up at feeding time for the
domestic menagerie. He still remains very cautious and is easily spooked if
anyone tries to touch him. However, he will take food from the hand.

As an experiment, Kim brought his food bowl a few feet into the house to see
what would happen. The attached video is from a couple of days ago, and
was taken at on the occasion of his second venture through the front door.

Note how cautious he is, but also note that Kim's voice does not phase him,
Both of us use gentle tones when speaking to him, and his trust level for us
is slowly increasing.

It would seem an easy enough job to entice him in again with me behind the
door to shut and trap him, but we don't want to do this because we have no
idea how he would react. We'd like him to stay a few minutes more before
we try that.

If you listen carefully, you'll hear Holmes yapping from the back yard - and
he would be a major problem with yet another big male in the house.

Anyway...just thought you'd like to see his progress.

The video is a little dark, much lighter and clearer on Kim's i-phone, but
good enough for now.

He looks like a nice kid. Poor thing is so afraid of everything, he must have been mistreated at one time. Don't trap him in, he may not come back, let him get used to the house with a way out.

You're right, Fred...we really have no plan to trap him, but we may move the food dish
further into the room and closer to the window so that he can see out, not closing the
door behind him.

Should he at some stage feel comfortable enough to sit for a while, or even lay down,
that would be the time to think about 'adopting' him.

Then the fun would start...

However, I'm not so sure that he will ever gain that level of trust. I believe that if he
allowed us to touch him, then that would be a major indication that we're on the right
track.

Sit on the floor at his level so he doesn't feel threatened by someone larger. That kid has been traumatized.

Is "WT" code for "whitey", you racist bastard?

Nothing so colorful, 'grains.

Actually most colorful...I called him WT because of his coloring...White and Tan.

On reflection TW rolls off th tongue more readily.

Update: WT was getting to trust us a great deal more...more so Kim than me.

She was able to corral him three times and he submitted quite calmly to her giving
him a soapy bath to get rid of the fleas. He seemed to like that.

Just lately however, although he shelters under the Cruiser rather than the bed on the
porch, and although he turns up regularly twice a day to be fed, he's regressed to not
eating until we come indoors. Too bad...he is a good dog, and I love it if he decided to
stay, but it's his decision. Just hope the asshole who lives next door doesn't call Animal
Control.

Anyone who would abandon a pet needs a public flogging.

We have three of 'em in the house, plus a stray cat. Another stray cat lives on
the porch...WT is scared of her.

If we had a big enough yard, we'd prolly have half a dozen or more, although
keeping 'em all fed is getting to be a tad expensive.

The church parking lot just down the street is where most of those you'd flog
drop off their unwanted dogs; it's heartbreaking to see them run up and
down the street looking for the assholes who have just abandoned them...we
just can't keep up with 'em all.
