Clancy’s Busy Dog Days of Summer – Winery, Tricks, NYC & more!

30 Sep

From the winery to “taking the plunge” in the Chesapeake Bay to being at the library listening to children read books to dock diving to obedience trials to visiting New York City to visiting patients at the hospital  to winning a dog trick contest to spending time with beloved family from near and far, Clancy the Keeshond (and I) have had a very busy past couple of months.  Check out some “snapshots” of Clancy’s summer below!  Then, please remember to check back in a couple of weeks when we share our experiences and encouragement of doing therapy dog work in a new blog post!

“Bang-Bang!” Clancy won the Dog Trick contest at the K9s in the Vines dog fundraiser event, followed by fellow trick dog friends Aria and Amelia.

Last month, we tried for our second leg of our CDX Obedience title, but NQ’d (didn’t qualify) due to a failure to drop on recall. That’s okay, we try again this coming weekend and hope to achieve our title the following weekend!

Who do you think was the fluffiest dog in the Chesapeake Bay doing the SPCA

Clancy created many smiles with his trick performances during his therapy dog visits and at a child's birthday party over the late summer.

In August, Clancy qualified for more legs towards his next dock diving title!

We look forward to sharing many of these experiences more in detail in future blog posts to hopefully encourage others to seek out and do more activities with their dog.  Coming soon:  A new blog post to share our experiences and encouragement of doing therapy dog work!  We’re also working on a new blog post on dog tricks!

www.KeesRescue.com Petition Reaches 15K Signatures! Clancy’s new trick video will be…

26 Sep

Woohoo!  We have reached the next milestone to #FreeTheKees with 15,000 signatures on the petition to Governor Cuomo of New York that tells him to Enforce Charlemagne’s Law and to shut down Marjorie’s Kennel in Harpursville, NY for being in clear violation of the law.

What does that mean?  Most importantly it means that at least 15,000 people are aware of the neglected Keeshonden in Marjorie’s Kennel and that it’s only a matter of time before those that have the power to shut her down cannot continue to ignore our voices.  We will not stand down until the 50+ remaining Keeshonden in her possession are allowed to be rescued and placed in the loving homes that are waiting for them!

Secondly, that means that it’s time for my beloved Keeshond, Clancy, to perform one of his fun and PAWesome trick routines for everyone to see on YouTube!  Recently, due to this mission, we were featured on the front page of two versions of the Gazette and the Local Living section of the Washington Post!  Check out the article here:  Gazette.net- Dog Lends Talent to End Poor Canine Conditions

You voted for it!  In our last blog post, we asked you which trick routine you wanted to see Clancy do next to celebrate 15,000 signatures on the www.KeesRescue.com petition.  Earning 50% of the the votes, you will soon see…

Clancy “SneaKEEily steals checkbook and goes shopping” dog trick video!
Check back here soon!  (and of course we will announce the video release, too!)  Please also keep spreading the word to sign the petition, write Governor Cuomo or the New York State Department of Agriculture…  let’s keep the momentum going and when we reach 20,000 signatures, we already have a very fun and awesome dog trick routine ready to share!

Clancy plays the Bongos! (with a piano encore!) – 10K Signatures reached to #FreeTheKees

3 Aug

Finally, what you have been waiting for…  it’s Clancy playing the Bongos with a finale of him playing both the bongos and the “piano”!  This is just the beginning of what we have in store for everyone!  When we have time, OR when the #FreeTheKees petition on www.KeesRescue.com reaches 15,000 signatures, we will post a new trick video!  Once 20,000 signatures have been reached, you’ll get to see Clancy do something really unique and cool!  (Hint, this video is a preview of what’s to come!)

We have surpassed 10,000 signatures on the petition to help put an end to the suffering of the Keeshonden at Marjorie’s Kennel, a large puppy mill in upstate New York, who had promised to turn over her dogs to Keeshond rescue, and now is going back on that promise to continue to breed her unhealthy and neglected dogs.  Thank you to everyone that have already signed.  As promised, here is that video of Clancy playing the bongos in return for the petition reaching 10,000 signatures!  Keep spreading the word!  Clancy wants to keep showing off his tricks!

PLEASE do not support puppy mills by purchasing a puppy from a pet store or unknown person from the Internet…  you will be dooming that puppy’s parents to a horrible life.  Either adopt, rescue, foster OR buy from a reputable breeder.  Please do your research before taking that cute puppy home.  You will be happier and the poor dogs suffering at places like Marjorie’s Kennel will be happier that there may be a day that puppy mills are put out of business.

Interested in trick training or booking Clancy for a trick show?  Contact us at FUNanimal Pet Services!  Thanks!

Go here to sign & please share!!!

https://www.change.org/petitions/gov-andrew-cuomo-enforce-charlemagne-s-law-and-free-the-keeshonds-from-marjorie-s-kennel

Please read about the #FreeTheKees movement to rescue 40+ dogs that are secluded, kept outside in all weather conditions, have parasites and congenital diseases and are being kept only as “breeding machines” to produce puppies that inherit many of their poor imprisoned parents problems.  The Keeshond community have the funds, means, and people to rescue all the remaining dogs and house them.  Learn more from my previous blog post (and see Clancy’s “whine” trick!) and you will find all the details on www.KeesRescue.com.

Please use the hash tag #FreeTheKees on any pet related post you make on Twitter, FaceBook or any other social media.  Thank you for anything you can do to help expose Marjorie’s Kennel and the oversights of the New York Department of Agriculture Inspectors.

Here are images of "Sapphire", originally known as "Frances", who was one of the lucky Keeshonden rescued from Marjorie's Kennel early this year and now lives with a loving family!
