Baxter from “Anchorman” Ron Burgundy’s beloved pet has endured torment at the hands of Jack Black, but that’s not much to stop the determined pup who will swim an ocean to save his master — which he did.

The dog with the keys from “Pirates of the Caribbean” Even though this pet has no name in the film, he’s definitely important. He’s entrusted with keeping the keys to a jail cell filled with dangerous criminals and most importantly, doesn’t break despite being offered a bone. That takes puppy guts.

Einstein from “Back to the Future” This dog is so devoted to his mad scientist owner, he’ll test an unproven time machine car running on Plutonium and not even bark in protest. That also takes puppy guts.

Toto from “The Wizard of Oz” One of the first puppy stars

in Hollywood is also one of the most influential. Think about it, every dog in the film business was inspired by him. That’s big shoes to fill and Toto delivers.

“Bolt” He may not have superpowers — just don’t tell him that — but Bolt will go on a crosscountry adventure with a cat and a hamster for his beloved Penny. Too bad he can’t pronounce Idina Menzel’s name.

China-buffet style donuts nurainy darono crumbs One favorite snack I find at a Chinese buffet is the classic donut. I looked up on the Internet some recipes for the donuts and simplified it with the ingredients below. You should have all of the

ingredients if you like to bake at home. The technique here is similar with the process of making pizza dough, except we are going to fry them instead of bake them in oven. Nurainy Darono can be reached at

A Crumbs Recipe Card Ingredients: 1 1/4 cups flour ½1/2 cup milk ¼1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/4¼ teaspoons baking powder 2 1/2½ tablespoons butter, melted Oil for frying Sugar for topping

Directions: In a bowl, mix 1 cup flour with salt and baking powder. Add butter and mix well. Add milk and stir until thick dough is formed. Using your hands, add the rest of the

flour and knead the dough for a few minutes. If the dough is sticky and hard to knead, covering your palms with flour will certainly help. Form spoonfuls of dough and flatten it with your palm. In a pan, heat oil in medium high heat. Fry dough balls five at a time for 30 seconds each side and flip the donuts after 30 seconds or until golden brown. Continue until dough is done. Set aside on a plate covered with paper towels, and you can also tap the remaining oil off the donuts with paper towels. Sprinkle sugar on top of the donuts.

My dog Sammy

In order for Sammy to lose weight, Jerome Knudsen has been walking him to and from class for two years now.

Cy Whitling | rawr


The story of a cute little blonde pomeranian claire whitley rawr The little blonde Pomeranian, Sammy, is a common sight on the University of Idaho campus. Two days a week, Sammy’s owner Jerome Knudsen brings the little guy to campus as a treat for the students as well as the dog. Sammy, 11, was adopted from the McPawd animal shelter in McCall, Idaho, by Knudsen and his wife four years ago. Sammy is the couple’s only dog right now — although previously they had a Maltese-Dachshund mix, which they rescued from a dog hoarder. Knudsen has been bringing Sammy to campus for about two years now. It started because Sammy needed exercise in order to lose weight. This was also after Sammy had to be treated for chewing on his own toenails with a prescription diet, doggie socks and booties. Now that Sammy has recovered and has exercised, Knudsen said the little dog still gets excited whenever they walk to campus. Sammy is here for the students, Knudsen said. “He helps people relax and smile a little,” Knudsen said. “For some, it is a little taste of home.” Jesse Wegley and Eric Weimer, UI freshmen, both stopped to say hello to Sammy outside of Einstein’s. “I’m so dog deprived,” Wegley said, rubbing Sammy. Weimer and Wegley gave Sammy some treats, pet him and left with smiles on their faces. “He’s cute,” Weimer said with a grin. Sammy is a friendly dog that will do anything for a treat, Knudsen said. One of the funniest things Sammy has done on campus is fall asleep in someone’s arms. “I went in for coffee at Einstein’s, came out and he was asleep,” Knudsen said. The little Pomeranian is food oriented, so Knudsen lets students walking by on campus feed him as well as pet him. “He’s just here for the treats,” Knudsen said. The two can be seen walking around campus every Wednesday and Thursday. Knudsen welcomes all passersby to come relieve a little bit of stress by petting Sammy. Claire Whitley can be reached at



Puppies in training Volunteers train puppies for social work bryce delay rawr Students from the University of Idaho residence halls came out to the lawn below the Theophilus Tower to socialize with some friendly, furry labs last week. These puppies and their trainers, work for an organization known as Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which provides highly trained dogs to enhance the lives of people with disabilities. Jacob Towne and Samantha Woodman were two students playing with the puppies in training. Towne said their resident assistant (RA) had gone door to door asking each resident if they wanted to come down and socialize with the puppies. “These are services dogs and service dogs need to be socialized,” Towne said. “They are bred for a specific job and then they are given a puppy raiser who raises them, not to adulthood but to a period where they can be trained further in depth.” Both students were told that it is important to introduce dogs to large crowds, because they need to be conditioned to be comfortable around commotion. RA Sydney Richardson was out on the lawn with two puppies on leashes. She said that she has worked with CCI for about three years and that the experience was worthwhile. “We work on socializing,” Richardson said. “They know about 40 commands by the time we turn them in.” Another trainer among the group — Dan Hardesty, an alumnus — said Shasta, his dog in training, was the 11th one he and his wife had raised. “We get them at eight weeks and raise them until they are 16 months old or less,” Hardesty said. “Then we turn them back

into the Canine Companions, Northwest region, it’s actually in Santa Rosa, California. (Shasta) is about ready to turn in. We actually take her back on the 17th of May.” Hardesty said that his wife’s mother had a hearing ear dog for 10 years. She was able to go back into society with the help from her dog. Raising these dogs is a way Hardesty expands the help and love that his mother-in-law received from her service dog, he said. He said he sees the good it brings the recipients and that alone is rewarding. “We were able to see how much that dog did for that person,” Hardesty said. “There is such a demand and need for them.” Six out of the 11 dogs trained by Hardesty and his wife have gone onto a recipient. Typically, there is only about a 40 percent success rate, Hardesty said. When a dog does not pass training, the puppy raisers have the first opportunity to adopt them. There is also a large waiting list of people who want these disciplined dogs, which may not have passed for certain reasons, he said. “They can be bumped out for little things,” Hardesty said. “There was one dog that went all the way through and was almost ready to graduate but he wouldn’t wear his cape because they have special capes they are supposed to wear. Some of them will develop a fear of some little thing.” Raising puppies for CCI is done completely by volunteers, said Hardesty. They buy the food and cover other costs that come with having a pet, which are tax deductible. In all, he said it was a rewarding experience training service dogs. Bryce Delay can be reached at

A helper, a friend, a partner

These beagles are more than just pets to this UI couple. nurainy darono rawr

Katy Kithcart | Rawr

Rebecca Beesley sits in Cedar Grove with her service dog Sally. After fighting chairi malformation, Beesley aquired Sally to help her pick things up off the ground.

Service dogs are individually trained and certified to perform tasks for people with disabilities. Introducing Sally and Snoopy — the only two beagle service dogs on the University of Idaho Moscow campus. Owned by couple Galen and Rebecca Beesley, students at UI, Sally and Snoopy are also related as they share the same father. Rebecca adopted Sally while they were still living in Texas in 2009. Galen adopted Snoopy a year after. In 2012, they moved back to Idaho to attend UI. Instead of purchasing trained service dogs, which could cost about $20,000 per dog, Rebecca said she and Galen picked Sally and Snoopy when they were puppies and trained them at home. “It was a friend of ours that had the litter and he told me to take her home one weekend, and just see if she bonded, see what her possibilities were,” Rebecca said. “She bonded very well. In fact, she was alerting me to my medication. ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) says that you can train your own (service dogs.) A lot of people don’t, because it takes a lot of time and energy.” Rebecca has fought a rare neurological disease that is called Chiari malformation, a condition where brain tissue extends to the spinal canal, which affects her balance and coordination. She said she was born with it, though she wasn’t diagnosed with the condition until she was an adult. After surgery that put rods on her spine in 2009, she decided to get a service dog for her daily activities. Rebecca said she can’t bend too low to the ground, as it will hurt her back. Sally is known as a medical and mobility service dog and in with Rebecca’s condition, she will pick things up for Rebecca and be aware of her medical conditions — the body chemistry will change and Sally can smell the chemical imbalance before Rebecca even knows it.

“I can bend to a certain extent but if I bend too far, it just puts pressure and it makes pain shoot all the way up and then also puts pressure in my head, which is not good,” Rebecca said. “There is just time when I need extra assistance, which (Sally) is for. She picks things up for me and brings it to knee level, which forces me to go ahead and use the little mobility I have.” Sally is Rebecca’s first service dog and she decided to have one because she hit a point when she needed more assistance for her daily activities. “You have to get to the stage in yourself that you say, ‘Okay, I need a service dog,’” Rebecca said. “I was very stubborn and flattered on my own without help to that point until I said, ‘No, I need some more assistance,’ and then I’ve had her ever since.” Galen served in the United States Military for 14 years and at his last assignment, he was placed at the military base Fort Hood, Texas, for six-and-a-half years. He retired in 2010 and soon after he was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

It happened a year after Rebecca decided to adopt Sally, then Galen adopted Snoopy. “We found out Galen needed the service dog for his PTSD,” Rebecca said. “Snoopy is a year younger (than Sally), even though he looks bigger and older.” While Sally has helped Rebecca with her mobility and medical alert, Snoopy has helped Galen with managing large groups of people. “He works the crowd for me,” Galen said. “One of the ways he does that is when I start to get anxious, he works the crowd and pulls me. That’s why he’s usually up in front, because he’s working the crowd and I am not going to let go of him.” Galen said having Snoopy has helped him not to think about who and what other people are doing around him. By having Snoopy, he focuses his mind on him in the crowd. Galen also said when he is waiting, like at a bank, Snoopy would sit by him and put his back against Galen, so he would know by Snoopy’s movement if people are coming

from behind. “He likes using his nose, so when people start coming around me, he starts sniffing,” Galen said. “If my anxiety level gets really high, he usually calms me down.” Galen said when he is calm and in class or studying in the Idaho Commons or Teaching Learning Center, Snoopy just sits under the chair or table and naps. He said Snoopy doesn’t like sitting on concrete, so he has a special rug for him. “Mornings, before he goes on duty, he is a regular dog,” Galen said. “When I am doing homework, he likes to sit next to me and crawl up and take a nap.” Galen said he has gotten used to Snoopy and describes Snoopy as his partner. “He is my bud,” Galen said. “We travel together and we do everything together.” Rebecca said she has gotten used to Sally helping her every day and everywhere she goes to the point where she feels that Sally is a part of her. “We come to school and she’s in every single one of my classes,” Rebecca said. “She helps me out


throughout the day. It’s hard for me say what a typical day is because she’s almost to the point where she is a part of me, so I don’t think of it as anything extra — she’s just a part of me.” Despite working and going to campus with Rebecca every day, Sally and Snoopy get to be a normal dogs at home. Rebecca said their vests are taken off, so they can play with their toys and run around the yard. “She is an ordinary dog,” Rebecca said. “She gets to be a lazy dog — sleeping on the couch and do whatever. Even though she is not in (her) vest and she’s not officially working, if I need something, she’s there almost before I know I needed it.” While Rebecca trained Sally for seven months, it took longer for Galen to train Snoopy as he didn’t have as much time to set aside — it took him about a year and a half to train him, which was also a part of his therapy. Sally was easy to train, Rebecca said, though a lot of people might say it is hard to train beagles as they are food oriented and will do anything to get snacks. “They will sit there and try to figure out what they did that got them a snack before and they can do it again,” Rebecca said. “They’re incredibly smart, and so that’s how she was trained by treats. Different dogs are trained for different needs.” Rebecca and Galen feed Sally and Snoopy one cup of dog food once a day, usually in the afternoon. Aside from that, Sally and Snoopy are also trained by treats — so during the day, they will most likely get their snacks depending on what they have done to earn them. Rebecca is a junior at UI majoring in history and minoring in German, women’s studies and religious studies. She will study abroad in Germany in the 2014 fall semester. Galen is a senior, double majoring in information systems and computer science. Having Sally and Snoopy around, people easily notice the Beesleys around campus, which makes Sally and Snoopy UI’s favorite dogs. Nurainy Darono can be reached at

My Wanda puppy For as long as I can remember, my family has always been a dog family. This is partly due to some severe cat selt kras yn kaitl allergies and rawr partly due to the fact that we just really like dogs. Currently my parent’s house is home to a fluffy, silky coated spaz named Wanda. She likes to run laps at lightening doggy speed around the couches, often spinning out of control once she hits the wood floors. Sometimes she acts like a cat or a parrot and perches on the shoulder of whoever is sitting in the recliner, and for some reason she likes to roll around on top of people’s heads if they’re lying down. Her other favorite pastime is attempting to pull off the socks of our guests as they walk down the stairs. What can I say, she’s got character. Wanda likes to cuddle in the lap of whoever will pay attention to her, and usually acts like she’s neglected, even though we all know she’s replaced both my brother and I as the favorite child since we moved out. She’s also a terrible guard dog and quickly becomes best friends with anyone who will pet her. We adopted Wanda from the Humane Society of the Palouse almost seven and a half years ago, and no, we still don’t know exactly what her heritage consists of. Whatever it is, she’s adorable. At first it was obvious she wasn’t used to having a loyal family to care for her, but she quickly adjusted once she learned she’d get regular baths, a full bowl of dog food every day and special doggy treats every morning. While she might be enjoying the extra attention now that she’s an only child, Wanda wasn’t always so trusting and loyal. Now, she’s grown to love


Adopting from humane society a great decision for all involved

kaitlyn krasselt | rawr

Wanda was adopted from the Humand Society of the Palouse almost seven and a half years ago. Now she lives comfortably at her home in Moscow. She enjoys playing with her toys, taking long walks on the trail and barking at the neighbor dogs. Wanda is a medium-sized black, fluffy lap dog. She is a mixed breed and ended up at the Humane Society of the Palouse after her previous owner was unable to care for her. us just as much as we love her. Any dog that ends up at a shelter likely hasn’t had the easiest or most glamorous doggy lifestyle. And although they’re treated well once they get to the shelter, there’s so many other animals that there often isn’t enough love and attention to go around. Wanda is the second dog my family adopted from the humane society. The first was a 150-pound mix that tended to resemble a bear but was

the most lovable, lazy, fat dog named Scooby I’ve ever been around. He’d push his big nose up next to your face on the couch and drool his smelly dog drool all over until you pushed him away or scratched his ears. Both Scooby and Wanda took some time to adjust and learn to trust our family but both learned to love their new home. Adopting from the shelter is a decision we’ve never regretted. The ability to provide a home for two dogs that might

otherwise have spent their lives in a kennel is one of the greatest gifts you can give an animal. The next time you’re considering adding to your family in the form of a furry friend — whether it’s a dog or a cat — take your local shelter into consideration first. It’s one of the greatest decisions you’ll ever make, and your new pet is sure to love you unconditionally. Kaitlyn Krasselt can be reached at

Breeding for three generations A Lewiston man gives the inside scoop on breeding Doberman Pinschers chin-lun hsu rawr His grandparents started dog breeding, his father followed and now, so is Jordan Hollingshead of Lewiston, Idaho. “There is a need in the market for Doberman Pinschers,” Hollingshead said. “The reason I know there is a need is that we have a waiting list for the next two years of puppies. We sell puppies all across the United States.” One of his biggest calls, he said, came from Hope Solo — an Olympic soccer player — asking if she could buy puppies from him.

In addition to the market need, dog breeding is a good source of income for the Hollingshead family. Hollingshead said when they sell the first dog’s puppies, it is time for the other dog to have puppies. “The best age for dog breeding is different for each breed. But for Doberman Pinschers, you can start as early as 1 year old,” Hollingshead said. “My family believes that you should wait for the Dobermans to be at least 2 years old so it is not as hard on the body of the dog.” With dog breeding, there are always concerns of potential problems in

terms of the new breed’s health, such as genetic defect. “We really haven’t had any problems with health from our puppies,” he said. “Our breed of dogs come from a very highly sought after bloodline of Doberman Pinschers, so health problems are pretty rare to occur. We make sure that all of our purebred puppies are registered at the (American Kennel Club).” He said all of the puppies he breeds have to be tested for health problems in order to register them with the AKC. Puppies registered with the AKC tend to be more expensive because they are

healthy pure breed dogs. The amazing part of breeding Doberman Pinschers is that they can be born in one of four different colors — fawn (the color of a deer), blue (grayish color), red and black. Hollingshead said they normally get red and black and they only had two blue Doberman Pinschers so far. “One of the most interesting things about breeding Doberman Pinschers is never knowing what color of Doberman you are going to get,” Hollingshead said.

extremely violent. They were set to madden bulls by attacking them for entertainment. When this form of activity was outlawed, the dog’s popularity dropped to the point that if it weren’t for a strong effort to save the breed, the bulldog would currently be extinct. The Chihuahua earned its name from where the breed was discovered in Chihuahua, Mexico.

No one knows where this breed originated from, though one popular theory is that it is a decedent of the dogs that were both eaten and sacrificed by the Aztecs. 4. The dachshund is small in size, which allows it to easily enter burrows and kill prey while hunting. This led to the dog earning its name, which means badger dog in German.
