One Very Smart & Talented Dog

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    Gorgeous what a smart dog

  4. That Pup loves to have fun!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Jumpy is adorable. Those jumps are incredible. I don’t understand why people don’t get that dogs or cats are man’s best friends.
    I have had more friends in animals than humans. I do have human friends too, but more animals. Those friendships last a long time.

    He is incredible, and seems to love to carry out everything asked of him!

  7. Paulette our thoughts about dogs run in the same wave. I have plans to post the dog video as well. It is sitting over in my draft section. I have seen smart dogs on You Tube but this one tops the charts.

    I thinlk Jumpy is better than the dog that knows 1000 voice commands over in Virginia, I think it is. That dog is a Border Collie with not mix. But Jumpy has the best of tow breeds- Border Collie and Australian cattle dog, I hope i have that right. I was in a hurry when I saw it as news on GMA on the Internet this am.

    • No surprise, we’re on the same wave. His intelligence is amazingly mind boggling. I’m not sure about his breed, if he’s a mix or not, don’t remember, but whatever he’s up at the top of the canine intelligence scale. Border Collies and Aussie dogs rank top of the list. Who knows how they measure it, but Jumpy has me convinced he’s in a class by himself. Love that dog!

    Love it! There is a vet clinic beside the coffee shop that I head out to every morning. I look forward to all of the dogs that drop by on their way to the vets. You should see how excited the dogs are to go to the vet. The vet must be amazing! They all rush in the door!! Love out four legged friends.

    • That must really be a terrific vet. You’ve picked the right coffee shop to have a cuppa at, lol. Instant entertainment, to have doggie energy greet you, while you enjoy. Sharing the love with you for our four legged friends. I bet they just love you back!

  10. Remarkable dog, but then he has an caring master and friend.

  12. what a daredevil! The skateboarding–the razor scooter–the high jumps!! Dogs are GREAT!!! Rumpy needs to meet Jumpy…or sumpin…:)

  13. Misaki says:

    wow, pawesome!

  14. That was amazing. He sure likes to jump and has no fear doing so for sure. I have never seen one dog do so many things before. Thanks for sharing this. Hugs

  15. Clowie says:

    This is the greatest I’ve ever seen. It has me out of breath just watching. I’ve just sent it to our friend Thomas a lawyer and neighbour, who once owned 32 huskies with which he competed in far north sled racing, and is obviously a true dog lover. He’d stopped competing many years ago, but kept the dogs for years anyway until the very end, because of his love for these wonderful friends. Thank you for sharing. JJ

  18. Sounds like your friend has quite the relationship with his husbies. Bless him for keeping them through their lives, family. He must have enjoyed some incredibly exhilariating experiences on the sled with them. They are a marvelous breed.

    Yes, Jumpy is one very talented boy. Amazed me as well. 🙂
