@ Ranjan: No problems as such, i have enough open space in the apartment for him to play. There are some people in the building who keep on creating issues about keeping pets but that is something that i am able to deal with.

Surprisingly, i didn't find many apartments in Bangalore that allow occupants to keep pets. There are rule books stating no pets!!!!

Guys , I a Newbie and it was wonderful to see a thread dedicated to Peta. I love Dogs, and have owned 3 of them till of now. At present I have a Labrador named "TAPPU". Due to space issues in my apartment he lives with my parents in Agra.
He is 1year 4months old , very notorious and highly emotional dog. He loves my mom so much that I cannot even HUG her in Tappu's presence and he starts barking and pulling my pants. He understands almost anything which my mom speaks in Punjabi and plays with her like kid.

Smart looking cat! But why has it got its tail up like that in the first pic?

White cats are poor hunters apparently - because the fur colour makes it easily visible to its prey.

Most cats keep their tails up in the air as a sort of normal, confident self-announcing stance. If they don't want to be noticed, or they are afraid, it will go down. During aggression, the whole tail fluffs out like a squirel !

This was going on for over 6 months. Whenever we used to go for 3-4 days, I had to throw away eggs too(don't cry, there is excess of pigeons in NCR, and they have all but eliminated other species of birds).
This time we went away for a month.As I open the balcony, I see the nest with 2 baby pigeons. I did not want to throw them away. So I picked them up(they were very small), and put then in a shoe box with some cotton. Made them drink water etc, and kept them in a different corner of the same balcony.
Mama pigeon comes and refuses to touch them, and keeps on searching for them in her corner.
For two days I feed them rice, bread and water.
After 2 days the foolish bird realizes these are her kids and starts to sleep in the same box. We give them rice etc. every day, and what you see is 7 days result. One of them is big now, and about to fly away in a week I think. Every time I give it rice or anything, it tries to bite my finger. The younger one is bullied by this one I think.

I'm the biggest pigeon hater you will find on this planet, and by a cruel twist of fate, I am raising two pigeons, and making them fat.
Slightly off-topic for this thread - but I am facing a similiar pigeon problem. My hall has no balconies. It has full length sliding windows & a mosquito net behind it. Then there is a 1 feet ledge & beyond are the metal grills. Whole day pigeons sit on the ledge & **** on the ledge between the sliding windows & the grills.

Is there a solution for it? Few people in the building have put barbed wires
on the grill - this works but looks very unsightly. Is there any solution for this?

Hey buddy, found this out on net for you. Not sure how practical it is to imply :-

Step-2
Place plastic owls and rubber snakes strategically around your balcony or porch. This may scare the pigeons. You will need to continually move the owls and snakes, or the pigeons will learn that they are harmless and ignore them.

Step-3
Attach shiny streamers, known as Flash Tape, to the roof of your balcony or porch so that they move freely in the wind. A budget alternative to buying Flash Tape is placing old CDs on a string and hanging them from the roof.

Step-4
Install bird netting, found at home-improvement stores, over the area where the pigeons are nesting. Secure the netting with duct tape or build a frame for it.

Step-5
Attach bird spikes to balcony and porch railings or any flat surface. The protruding prongs discourage birds from landing. If you donít want to buy bird spikes, you can make your own low-cost version. Buy a roll of chicken wire and cut it into several long strips. Attach the cut pieces to railings or other areas with the cut area facing up.

Step-6
Apply bird gel to flat surfaces where your pigeons are likely to land. This sticky substance can discourage pigeons from landing. Bird gel is sold in cartridge form. It is applied using a caulking gun.

Step-7
Try an ultrasonic device. They are a little pricey, but if nothing else works, one of these devices may be able to repel birds from your property. Ultrasonic devices use sound waves to repel pigeons from enclosed or semi-enclosed areas.

We have an animal son, named Tiger Both me and my wife take care of this fellow like our kid.. My wife often goes emotional with him -- motherly love i say !!

Here are the pics, now he is 6.5months old, i got him home when he was about 2 months old. He is an alsatian -- a short coat slim variety among GSD !

He is house trained, but stubborn to obey the house rules! When he is pissed off, he starts pissing everywhere.. thats how he takes revenge on me

In the Bean Bag pic.. he is abt 2.5 months, happily occupied my bean bag, and cozy nap he is having...

In the chair snap .. He is actually trying to figure out how to come down, he finally learnt it after 9 attempts

In the sepia shade snaps, he is 6.5 months old, when we both went for a walk at 11pm, thats his time to poo

I also have a few questions for fellow BHPians having a GSD !

how is the eating habit of your pet ?
My tiger, eats very little, likes to stay slim and often doesnt show that hunger for food, except if it is Glenand Biscuits !! how to solve this? i tried serving him food for 20 mins and taking it off.. he is absolutely not bothered about it! in fact, he doesnt mind.

How much exercise do you give you pet?
I walk my tiger 3 times/day. once at 6.45 am for 20 mins, 6pm for 45 mins, 10pm for 45 mins again. This to generate hunger, but this fellow is still not hungry !

What do you feed ?
I tried Royal Canin, BestInShow, Pedigree & Science Plan. Nothing works. He likes Natural Trainer (eats may be 1 cup per day) and curd rice only ! ocassionally i give him boiled eggs and he seems to like it. But regular food, is a big headache with this guy.

I just want to get a few behaviour inputs of other GSDs so that i can try and improve my fellow. He stays lean and is hyper active all the time! Often people end up telling me, he look weak, but i feel he doesnt behave weak, so might be in his genes.

Just need some help in this regard
