AMID the wave of dog attacks, Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur banned Pitbull Rottweiler breeds on Tuesday to protect the public. It happened after a breed of pit bull brutally attacked a cow, leaving deep wounds on the cow’s mouth.

“In order to protect the public, Pitbulls and Rottweilers are now banned from the city limits. Following an incident where a Pitbull dog attacked a cow at Sarsaiya Ghat and in light of the increase in incidents of Pitbull dog attacks, this decision has been made,” Mayor Pramila Pandey said Tuesday.

According to a report by IANS news agency, the house of Kanpur Municipal Corporation (KMC) has passed a resolution banning the breeding of Pitbull and Rottweiler dog breeds in the city. Anyone found breeding either of the two breeds will be fined up to 5,000 rupees and their ‘pet’ will be confiscated, according to the resolution.

The KMC made this decision keeping in mind the wave of dog attacks on humans and animals. The resolution stated that people do not have a large enough residence or farm to keep dogs of dreaded alien species, due to which they get stressed and attack people. “To protect the public from attack, the fearsome Pitbull and Rottweiler breeds are prohibited within city limits,” he added.

While speaking on the same, the Additional Municipal Commissioner, Suryakant Tripathi, said, “The breeding of dogs of these two species for the purpose of domestication and trade is prohibited in urban areas. If a person illegally keeps such dogs within the municipal boundaries, they will be fined Rs 5,000 and the dog would also be confiscated. »

Meanwhile, cases of dogs attacking humans have recently spiked. Earlier, a video surfaced on social media where a pet dog attacked a man inside an elevator at a building complex in Noida.

Another incident was reported in Kerala when a stray dog ​​attacked a 12-year-old boy in Kozhikode. A clip of the same has also gone viral on social media. In the clip, a boy was seen playing outside his house when a stray dog ​​came running towards him and bit him. In another incident reported at the same location, up to six people, including four children, were allegedly bitten by stray dogs in Kozhikode and Palakkad.

Cost of living crisis: St John’s Aquatics and Reptiles pet shop closed https://oogutiyuushi.com/cost-of-living-crisis-st-johns-aquatics-and-reptiles-pet-shop-closed/ Mon, 26 Sep 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/cost-of-living-crisis-st-johns-aquatics-and-reptiles-pet-shop-closed/ A pet store in Worcester is forced to close as the price of electricity continues to soar.

Aquatics and Reptiles in Swanpool Walk closes at the end of the month after 14 years in St John’s.

And owner Clive Longstaff says rising energy bills are to blame.

“Our electric bill went from £883 per month to £2,190 per month in April,” he said.

“There has also been a 30% drop in sales because people don’t have money in their pockets to go out and shop.

“The government knew this was happening in February – they knew prices would go up in October and again in January – but nothing was done.

“Some companies seem to be doing very well, but the retail sector has been hit hard.”

Clive said the cost of heating aquariums and vivariums also hits pet owners hard.

“People are giving up their aquariums and reptiles because they’re costing them too much at home,” he said.

“We’ve had people ask us to take snakes, bearded dragons and fish because they can’t afford to take care of them anymore.

“You can’t skimp on the heating”

“They are tropical animals. Bearded dragons come from Australia and are used to 40°C heat – you can’t skimp on heating.

Clive, who has been in the pet industry for 37 years, will offer pond and aquarium maintenance services from his home in Malvern.

Anyone trying to reach him after the store closes on September 30 can call 07419831820 or email aquacarepondservices@gmail.com

Another staff member, Lucy Gooderham, will provide reptile accommodations under the name Worcester Reptile Boarding.

Regarding the animals in the shop, Clive said: “Reptiles have been slowly selling out, but we’re not selling them cheaply – they’re animals and they need to go to a good home.

“We always make sure that every owner is checked to make sure they have the right equipment and the right setup.

“If the reptiles are still there at the end of the month, the staff will bring some home and I will bring some home.”

The pet shop: Coco https://oogutiyuushi.com/the-pet-shop-coco/ Sun, 25 Sep 2022 04:00:00 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/the-pet-shop-coco/

Janice Carmac

Her name is Coco and she came into my life on June 16th.

Still a kitten, she appears to be a Maine Coon mix. She has big feet, black and gray mackerel-patterned fur, a bushy tail, and a strong personality.

My black and white tuxedo cat, Ariel, passed away on August 31, 2021. My family was grieving, especially my 17-year-old daughter Noel, who spent much of her preschool years watching television while Ariel was dozing on her knees.

We adjusted to having a cat, a 5-year-old calico named Peanut. We developed a routine of many pets in the morning and then Peanut spent most of his days in bed on the couch. It was fun, easy.

But when my daughter Zoë came home for the summer, she’s a junior at NC State, we decided maybe we were ready for a new family member.

People also read…

One day, Zoë was having coffee at Bold Coffee in Asheboro — when she wasn’t working, she spent most of her summer having teas and coffees with friends — and she noticed pictures of kittens posted by a barista who would soon be available for adoption.

Zoë got the information from the barista and we went to her apartment and were greeted by several loose kittens.

We wanted a cat with short or medium hair and Coco met our requirements.

Peanut was not thrilled with Coco’s arrival and avoided coming into the house for a few weeks. We were surprised, I had imagined Peanut kissing Coco, grooming her, snuggling up during naps.

Coco wants to play with Peanut. Peanut just wants to be left alone.

They have found a kind of peace with each other although most mornings they fight for a few minutes. Later, he can be found sleeping several feet apart on Zoë’s bed.

Unlike Peanut, I love my little Coco. I love watching her play, holding her to my chest under my chin when she’s naughty, and watching her sleep on my lap. She is so happy to see me in the morning and makes a chirping sound that I have never heard a cat do before.

Staff at the local vet’s office called her feisty on several occasions – I heard a big commotion in the back when they had her vaccinated, and the vet warned me that when Coco grows up she will be running the house , that we must provide a safe place where Peanut can rest undisturbed. A technician observed that we should have named her Elvira.

Guess we should have expected a bold kitty featured on a bulletin board in a Bold cafe.

Reghan Winkler: pet adoption scams https://oogutiyuushi.com/reghan-winkler-pet-adoption-scams/ Sat, 24 Sep 2022 17:30:00 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/reghan-winkler-pet-adoption-scams/

Internet scams are a constant. Fortunately, people have become aware of the most well-known diets. Fewer and fewer people are falling for the false promise of making millions in the Publishers Clearing House scam. Most also know that there isn’t really a Nigerian prince who needs their help to secure his massive inheritance.

These and other scams have been around for quite some time.

However, the COVID pandemic appears to have been a catalyst in the explosion of online shopping scams. We had limited access to brick-and-mortar outlets, so online shopping was embraced, especially by the younger generation.

At the start of the pandemic, people searched for everything online. Surprisingly, adding a new puppy or other pet to the family was high on the list. In fact, in 2021, pet scams accounted for up to 35% of all online shopping scams reported to the BBB.

Commonly referred to as the “Puppy Scam,” the scammers saw an opportunity to exploit the situation, expanding their criminal efforts to levels of mass marketing that would make Amazon jealous. Thousands of fake websites offering pets for sale have been posted with the express purpose of tricking consumers into parting with big bucks.

Ads for sites often appear on Craigslist or Facebook. Knowing that emotion is a powerful motivator, the “Puppy Scam” is designed to get victims emotionally attached to a fictional pet. Scammers steal cute photos and videos of puppies or other pets from the internet to further sell the pets legitimacy, then offer the beloved pet for a price well below the norm.

When a victim is interested enough to contact the scammer, efforts to “hook” the victim increase. Fraudsters use emails, text messages and phone calls to further emotionally engage their prey. They repeated answers covering almost all questions about the animal. The victims soon consider the animal their own.

Once emotionally invested in the animal, the scammers also seek to financially invest the victims, tricking them into sending hundreds of dollars to secure ownership.

Some scammers have even created “Pet Delivery” websites. Victims are given a tracking number and notified that their new family member is on the way.

About a day later, the victims receive an e-mail stating that the delivery is delayed and that they must pay additional costs: delivery costs, cage costs, vaccines, etc. Scammers know that if victims are emotionally invested, the chances of extracting more money from them are high. Fraudsters keep adding fees until the victim can’t pay or realizes they’ve been scammed. If payment is refused, they often even threaten the victim of the crime with “animal abandonment” (in such a case, these laws would not apply).

How can you protect yourself if you are looking for a pet online? Here are a few tips :

• Do your best to see the animal in person. If that’s not possible, request a FaceTime or other live video call.

• Make sure the photos you see are legitimate and not stored or stolen by performing a reverse image search on www.images.google.com.

• Always ask for and check references.

• Don’t deal with anyone who won’t communicate with you by means other than text or email.

• Avoid payments by methods that make it difficult to track recipients such as gift cards, Venmo, Zelle and money transfers such as MoneyGram or Western Union.

• As always, beware of any price that is too good to be true. A pet offered at a greatly reduced price probably indicates a scam.

Finally, consider adopting a pet from a local shelter or rescue group. This will make you and the adopted animal very happy!

A man from Hanoi earns a lot of money by selling French bulldogs https://oogutiyuushi.com/a-man-from-hanoi-earns-a-lot-of-money-by-selling-french-bulldogs/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 13:11:46 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/a-man-from-hanoi-earns-a-lot-of-money-by-selling-french-bulldogs/

In a small house in Thinh Liet neighborhood, Hoang Mai district, this 32-year-old mixes beef with vegetables, salmon and foie gras to prepare lunch for his 10 dogs.

The amount he gives each person is based on their weight and physical condition.

He explains, “For skinny dogs, I make more nutritious meals. I feed the big ones less to prevent obesity and keep them fit.”

The food for the 10 dogs costs between 8 and 10 million VND per month.

After a break, the dogs are given yoghurt or fresh milk to stimulate their digestive system. In the afternoon, he takes them for a walk in a park near his home.

“A lot of people confuse French Bulldogs with Pit Bulls, which are more aggressive. But French Bulldogs are different. They’re small companion dogs. They’re friendly and adaptive.”

French bulldogs originated in England. In 1860, French breeders imported a number of them from England to mate them with French terriers, thus creating a new small breed of bulldogs.

Adult animals weigh from 7 to 14 kilograms, with a 60 degree angled nose, large eyes and a short tail. They have short hair in three basic colors (black, brown and white – black).

Nguyen Hoang Trung trains a French bulldog at his home on August 22, 2022. Photo VnExpress/Quynh Nguyen

French Bulldogs were first sold in Vietnam in 2010, but have become very popular over the past three years.

Trung is one of the few people to have bred them successfully in the country.

From an early age he was interested in dogs and bred many large breeds such as Rottweiler, Husky and Malinois.

In 2018, he was drawn to a photo of a French bulldog a friend had. He later learned that they were a friendly breed of dog, suitable for families with children.

He then found a way to order breeding dogs from Ukraine at 200 million VND each.

“The first French bulldog I bought, named CR7, has a single wrinkle on his face – a very rare feature. I bought him straight away when I saw him, even though my friends and family have said it was crazy to spend so much money on a dog.”

To create a good living environment for his dogs, Trung regularly cleans their cages, periodically disinfects them, and keeps medical equipment, medications, and blood test strips.

Dogs are used to a temperate climate and not the tropical climate of Vietnam, and therefore heat shock and respiratory disease are a risk.

To keep them healthy, French Bulldog owners should use a steam fan and an air conditioner to keep the temperature in their living space at 26-29 degrees Celsius.

Still, it takes them at least three months to get used to the climate and the food.

Since buying CR7, Trung has received many requests from dog owners to let him mate with their animals, which made him realize the high demand for foreign dog breeds in Vietnam.

So he got four more dogs (three males and one female) from Russia, Ukraine and Hungary for nearly a billion VND.

“Importing dogs to Vietnam is very complicated and expensive.”

It takes four or five different documents to prove their origin and physical condition, which takes a lot of time and effort.

It costs between 20 and 30 million VND to bring a dog to Vietnam.

To determine the best time for his dogs to mate, Trung purchased a microscope to check sperm quality and equipment to check the female dogs’ blood hormone levels.

Trung says French bulldogs born in Vietnam are easier to raise because their respiratory system, skeleton, fur and skin have already adapted to the climate.

A female can give birth to four to five puppies on average and produce two litters per year.

“But I tell my clients to only let their female dogs produce a maximum of four or five litters in their lifetime. It’s not good for their health if they give birth frequently.”

He now has 20 purebred French bulldogs in Hanoi and several satellite farms where he breeds others.

The demand is very strong and he quickly sells his dogs.

Some customers have to wait six to twelve months to get a dog with the appearance they want.

“If my clients have special requirements, I have to find the right breeders and of course that takes more time and money.”

In October 2021, Trinh Van Doan, 32, from Dong Anh District, Hanoi, bought a female dog from Trung for 55 million VND.

He already had another French bulldog which cost him 40 million VND.

Doan says both of these dogs cost more than the average market price because they were born to imported parents and have all the legal paperwork.

“I like this breed because of its friendliness. In addition, it is a breed of dog with low shedding, quite calm and suitable for families with children. The price is acceptable. In the near future I want to buy another male as soon as I find the right one with the color I like.”

Vu Dung, 25, from Hoang Mai district in Hanoi is also a French bulldog lover.

He bought a five-month-old puppy born in Vietnam from Trung for 20 million VND.

He says: “Compared to the French Bulldog crosses, the Thoroughbreds are more beautiful. Their coat is short and smooth and their tail is short.”

During the four years he bred the dogs, Trung sold 70-100 puppies a year at VND20-50 million each.

He has bred over 1,000 dogs from other owners. He earns 5-7 million VND per case.

Trung also runs a dog hotel that houses and cares for animals when their owners are busy.

He earns about 1 billion VND a year but says he doesn’t care too much about the money; only that work allows him to do what he really loves.

The man hopes to build a community of French bulldog lovers in Vietnam to share his experiences in breeding and raising animals.

Reading room

The best-selling New Zealand books of the week, as recorded by the Nielsen BookScan New Zealand bestseller list and described by Steve Braunias

FICTION

1 Kawai by Monty Soutar (David Bateman, $39.99)

Number one for the second consecutive week – in paperback; the hardcover version, below, is number two for the second week in a row. This is an amazing achievement and I will be writing about Soutar’s historical novel in ReadingRoom’s weekly newsletter sent to subscribers on Saturday (by all means Subscribe now; a new topic is discussed each week).

2 Kawai by Monty Soutar (David Bateman, $49.99)

“My new novel Kawai depicts Maori society in the 1700s, and kaitangata – referred to as cannibalism in ethnographic literature – was an integral part of that society. To ignore it in the novel would be to be unfaithful to what I know of this period…. Some commentators have written that Māori never pursued the practice out of love, but for revenge against their enemies. That may be true, but there are examples in our oral traditions that point to the killing and consumption of individuals who were less than traditional enemies. I guess it depends on how you define the term enemy or hoariri as we would say in Maori (angry friend): from a fascinating essay by the author, published last week at ReadingRoom.

3 Eddy, Eddy by Kate DeGoldi (Allen & Unwin, $29.99)

Eddy, Eddy took him three years to complete, but the idea came back a decade before that, sparked in a split second when a friend mentioned he was taking his cockatoo to the vet because he was constipated, which De Goldi found it extremely funny. And so Eddy, the teenage protagonist of the novel, who has a pet-sitting business, moved on from there, along with all the other characters in the book. De Goldi placed the book in Christchurch, and placed it after the Canterbury earthquakes, which affected it enormously: according to an excellent interview with Mike White at Things.

4 the bad woman by JP Pomare (Hachette, $36.99)

5 Accommodation by Jenny Pattrick (Penguin Random House, $36)

6 Return to Harikoa Bay by Owen Marshall (Penguin Random House, $37)

seven Poor people with money by Dominic Hoey (Penguin Random House, $37)

8 Kurangaituku by Whiti Hereaka (Huia Editors, $35)

Congratulations are in order Kurangaituku designers Te Kani Price and Camilla Lau, who won Best Business Book at last night’s New Zealand Book Design Awards. A sample of their inventive work on Hereaka’s novel is below; the work of all other winners is published at the end of this week’s list.

9 Always italicize by Alice Te Punga Somerville (Auckland University Press, $24.99)

New collection of poems, including an epic dedicated to an iconic Auckland street once known as Madeleine Avenue, now renamed Mt Taylor Drive, in Glendowie. It begins

dave dobbyn wrote a song about madeleine avenue.

dlt helped him with that

and it’s a good song

to those of us who grew up in the area,

the street they sing was not ‘avenue de la madeleine’ –

he couldn’t have that kind of name.

it was crazy ave.

It ends

when i was 14

I was in a school production on taurere

and the stories told of people who had known the landscape

before mad ave, before mount taylor drive.

I still don’t know who has the right to cry

who has the right to say

that their place has been removed.

Striking graphic cover; a definite contender for the 2023 New Zealand Book Design Awards.

ten Greta and Valdin by Rebecca K Reilly (Te Herenga Waka University Press, $35)

NON FICTION

1 Requires adult supervision by Emily Writes (Penguin Random House, $35)

Publisher’s presentation text: “Requires adult supervision is Emily Writes’ take on growing up and feeling like a real adult. This book examines the growing pains of children and their parents and their attempts to navigate a world that changes by the minute. Emily paints a vivid picture of all the feelings, fortunes and failures that come with trying to be a parent when you don’t always feel up to the task. What it’s like to learn alongside your children. What happens when we get radically honest about the challenges parents face? »

Striking graphic cover; a possible contender for the New Zealand Book Design Awards 2023

2 Maori Made Easy Workbook 1 / Kete 1 by Scotty Morrison (Penguin Random House, $25)

3 Miss Polly’s Kitchen by Polly Markus (Allen & Unwin, $45)

4 Ross Taylor: black and white by Paul Thomas (Upstart Press, $49.99)

5 Yes Minister by Christopher Finlayson (Allen & Unwin, $36.99)

6 Aroha by Hinemoa Elder (Penguin Random House, $30)

seven Maori simplified by Scotty Morrison (Penguin Random House, $38)

8 Everyday Favorites by Vanya Insull (Allen & Unwin, $39.99)

9 Son of a good and lively man by The Crump Brothers (Penguin Random House, $38)

I was sitting in my shed the other day flipping through the New Zealand Poetry Yearbook ’64 — it’s the controversial one, which the Literary Fund refused to sponsor unless six poems were omitted (all filthy little bangers about sex, not worth publishing in the first place: “The Girl next to me, as plump as cream… she is gently chiseled meat/ I was hoping to spread on you-know-which plate/ and poke at leisure with a special mustard,” Christchurch court reporter Richard Packer wrote ). Well, that was the time, gripping and rooted, stained with the swill of six o’clock; and a hero of the time was Barry Crump, then at the height of his fame as the author of best-selling yarn and storybooks, A good and lively man (1960), Hang on to a minute mate (1961), and one of us (1962). Among the contributors to the 1964 poetry directory was Crump’s friend, Jack Lasenby. He writes in his biographical notes at the end of the book: “I am a former deer killer and trapper, but now, married with two children, I am well on my way to Training College. My real claim to fame is that I toured with Crump. My wife adds that real fame can only come by shooting Crump.

My opinion on Son of a good and passionate mana memoir by Barry Crump’s six sons, was published last week.

ten Foulden Maar Fossil Treasures by Daphne Lee & Uwe Kaulfuss & Jo Conran (Otago University Press, $60)

Fouden Maar! The Fouden Maar. It is an amazing paleontological site in Otago, home to countless rare and well-preserved fossils. Fossil treasures is one of the best illustrated books of the year – and it’s a likely contender for the 2023 New Zealand Book Design Awards.

And now to the winners of the New Zealand Book Design Awards 2022, held last night. Xoë Hall’s witty and exuberant revival of Tayi Tibble’s collection of poetry Rangikura won the award for best cover.

Anna Brown and Matt Law won Best Illustrated Book for their work on Anne Noble’s photography book Conversatiō: In the company of bees (Named one of the best picture books of 2021 by ReadingRoom.)

Floor van Lierop won the award for best typography for He Ringatoi O Ngā Tupuna by Hillary and John Mitchell.

Dave Gunson and Alice Bell won Best Educational Book for Gunson’s Inside New Zealand Wildlife. (The image provided was too small to reproduce here.) Emily Joe won Best Children’s Book as the designer (and author and illustrator) of My cat can see ghosts.

Cat Taylor and Evie Kemp win best cookbook award for Lucy Corry Home cooking.

And finally, the ever-fabulous, multi-award-winning Keely O’Shannessy (composed by Tina Delceg) won Best Unillustrated Book for the Paula Morris and Alison Wong anthology. Clear Dawn: new Asian voices from Aotearoa, New Zealand. Congratulations to all of the winners (including Te Kani Price, who won Best Emerging Designer) and thanks to the judges, the wise and venerable Jenna Todd (Organizer), Jenny Nicholls, Johnson Witehira and William Chen.

When Isaac Robbins was eight, he remembers going to a friend’s birthday party at an idiosyncratic, sprawling old house in Blue Hill that had arches and turrets like a castle.

So when the building, known as the Barncastle, came up for sale in 2007, he and his wife, Lori, jumped at the chance to buy it. Since then, they have transformed the Barncastle into a go-to destination for food and music on the Blue Hill Peninsula.

But now, after 16 summer seasons, they are looking for someone else to take over. The Barncastle Hotel and Restaurant, as it was dubbed under Robbins, went on sale earlier this month. Built in 1884 by Boston architect and Blue Hill native George Clough, the five-bedroom, 9,000-square-foot hotel is listed at $1.6 million.
