Prague Ratter

I do not breed or sell dogs. I just love them and am involved in dog rescue with my 2 sisters. I happen to love the different breeds and I find them fascinating. So when I look up a dog breed, I share it with you. So don't ask me where to buy a dog, I don't know. Just passing on information.


Pražský Krysarík aka Prague Ratter - No, it's not a Miniature Pinscher or a Chihuahua. It is a small breed of dog from the Czech Republic. It is the smallest breed in the world by breed standard, because of the maximum height of the dogs, unlike Chihuahuas who are measured by weight. It is often confused with the Chihuahua & the Min Pin. The characteristics are very close to those of Min Pin. The liveliness, which is so valued, is typical of him. His briskness is admirable. He is very watchful, focused, at the same time he is playful, warmhearted & always loves a cuddle. He is very loving to his master. The dog's coat consists of short, glossy hair. The most common color is black and tan, which is also the original color. Lately, other colors have been approved: brown & tan, blue & tan, lilac & tan, yellow, red and merle. Prague ratter is a miniature, very active, alert, lively. He has a highly developed sense of smell, small size, lively, so he was used for killing rats (Krysa), (How he got the name "Krysarik"). These qualities he possesses have been developed over the past centuries. His nature is very social, obedient, warm-hearted. He understands children & his love for home is deep. By nature he is noble & intelligent. The Prazsky Krysarik hates the cold & may shiver. These are good little dogs for apartment life.

Height Dog - 7.48 inches - 8.66 inches Bitch - 7.48 inches - 8.66 inches Ideal height is 7.87 inches - 8.66 inches (serious fault, over 8.66 inches)
Weight 2-6 lbs Weight Optimal 4.4 lbs

Seldom seen outside the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the Prazsky Krysarik has been selectively bred as a companion dog. The Prague Ratter was developed by Czechs and Slovaks who wanted to create a strictly non-utilitarian dog. This small dog was often seen at aristocratic feasts at Prague Castle. In the early history of the Czech Republic and Slovakia he adorned courts of Bohemian princes and kings, and he was also owned by other European rulers because kings of Bohemia presented him to them. Later, his owners were ordinary citizens. From the history of the Prazsky Krysarik we can learn a lot, because most of it has been preserved. For instance, we know that this breed really comes from Bohemia and its origins can be traced back to the early history of Czechoslovakia.


These are not my dogs. I did a Google image search to find photos to show you this pretty little dog. They look so much like Miniature Pinschers but are smaller. I tried to find photos that showed their size and the colors.

John and Rosina "Rosa" Hauser

John Hauser was born Abt 1825 in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. I don't know who John Hauser's parents were at this time. He married Rosina "Rosa" Unknown who was born Abt 1827 in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. They evidently immigrated to the United States between 1850-1855. Their oldest son was born in Indiana about 1855 so they were in the USA at that time.

AKA Wirtemberg, Wurtemberg. Its traditional capital was Stuttgart. For short periods of time, the seat of the government was located in Ludwigsburg and Urach. The name of the dynasty and the state originates from a steep Stuttgart hill, close to Stuttgart-Untertürkheim. Now the region is part of the German state of Baden-Württemberg. Württemberg, once a Duchy within the Holy Roman Empire, in 1806 became the Kingdom with the break-up of empire. This was during the reign of Frederick I of Württemberg. In 1918 it became a republic called the Free People's State of Württemberg. After World War II, Württemberg was divided between the United States and French occupation zones and became part of two new states: Württemberg-Baden and Württemberg-Hohenzollern. After the Federal Republic of Germany was formed in 1949, these two states merged with Baden in 1952 to become the modern German state of Baden-Württemberg.

The Kingdom of Württemberg (German: Königreich Württemberg) was a state in Germany that existed from 1806 to 1918, located in the area that is nowBaden-Württemberg. The Kingdom was a continuation of the Duchy of Württemberg, which came into existence in 1495. Prior to 1495, the ruling house of Württemberg had consisted of counts ruling only a fragment of the Duchy of Swabia, which had dissolved after the death of Duke Conradin in 1268. The Kingdom had borders with Bavaria on the east and south, with Baden in the north and west. In the southwest it held a short border with the Hohenzollernand Lake Constance.

Frederick II
Once a Duchy within the Holy Roman Empire, on 1 January 1806, Duke Frederick II assumed the title of king from Frederick I, abrogated the constitution and united old and new Württemberg. Subsequently, he placed the property of the church under the control of the Kingdom, whose boundaries were also greatly extended by the process of "mediatisation".

The European Revolutions of 1848, known in some countries as the Spring of Nations, Springtime of the Peoples or the Year of Revolution, were a series of political upheavals throughout Europe in 1848. It remains the most widespread revolutionary wave in European history, but within a year, reactionary forces had regained control, and the revolutions collapsed.

The revolutionary wave began in France in February, and immediately spread to most of Europe and parts of Latin America. Over 50 countries were affected, but with no coordination or cooperation among the revolutionaries in different countries. Five factors were involved: widespread dissatisfaction with political leadership; demands for more participation in government and democracy; the demands of the working classes; the upsurge of nationalism; and finally, the regrouping of the reactionary forces based on the royalty, the aristocracy, the army, and the peasants.

The "March Revolution" in the German states took place in the south and the west of Germany, with large popular assemblies and mass demonstrations. Led by well-educated students and intellectuals, they demanded German national unity, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly. The uprisings were not well coordinated, but had in common a rejection of traditional, autocratic political structures in the 39 independent states of the German Confederation. The middle-class and working-class components of the Revolution split, and in the end, the conservative aristocracy defeated it, forcing many liberals into exile.

The uprisings were led by shaky ad hoc coalitions of reformers, the middle classes and workers, which did not hold together for long. Tens of thousands of people were killed, and many more forced into exile. The only significant lasting reforms were the abolition of serfdom in Austria and Hungary, the end of absolute monarchy in Denmark, and the definitive end of the Capetian monarchy in France. The revolutions were most important in France, Germany, Poland, Italy, and the Austrian Empire, but did not reach Russia, Sweden, Great Britain, and most of southern Europe (Spain, Serbia, Greece, Montenegro, Portugal, the Ottoman Empire)

In 1806, Frederick II joined the Confederation of the Rhine and received further additions of territory with 160,000 inhabitants. Later, by the Peace of Vienna of October 1809, about 110,000 more people came under his rule. In return for these favours, Frederick joined French Emperor Napoleon I in his campaigns against Prussia, Austria and Russia. Of the 16,000 of his subjects who marched to Moscow, only a few hundred returned. After the Battle of Leipzig in October 1813, King Frederick deserted the French emperor, and by a treaty with Metternich at Fulda in November 1813, he secured the confirmation of his royal title and of his recent acquisitions of territory, while his troops marched with those of the allies into France. In 1815, the King joined the German Confederation, but the Congress of Vienna made no change to the extent of his lands. In the same year, he laid before the representatives of his people the outline of a new constitution, but they rejected it, and in the midst of the commotion that ensued, Frederick died on 30 October 1816.

William I
He was succeeded by his son, William I (reigned 1816–1864), who after much discussion, granted a new constitution in September 1819. This constitution, with subsequent modifications, remained in force until 1918 (see Württemberg). The desire for greater political freedom did not entirely fade under the constitution of 1819, and after 1830, some transitory unrest occurred.

A period of quiet set in, and the condition of the kingdom, its education, its agriculture, its trade and economy improved. Both in public and in private matters, William's frugality helped to repair the country's shattered finances. The inclusion of Württemberg in the German Zollverein and the construction of railways fostered trade.

The revolutionary movement of 1848 did not leave Württemberg untouched, although no violence took place in the territory.

William had to dismiss Johannes Schlayer (1792–1860) and his other ministers, and call to power men with more liberal ideas, proponents of united Germany. William proclaimed a democratic constitution, but as soon as the movement had spent its force he dismissed the liberal ministers, and in October 1849, Schlayer and his associates returned to power. By interfering with popular electoral rights, the king and his ministers succeeded in assembling a servile diet in 1851 that surrendered the privileges gained since 1848. In this way the authorities restored the constitution of 1819, and power passed into bureaucratic hands. A concordat with the papacy proved almost the last act of William's long reign, but the diet repudiated the agreement.


John Hauser and Rosina had 6 children that I'm aware of:
1) Erhard Hauser born abt 1855 in Indiana. I believe him to be Edward Hauser, Sr. The DOB's are close, Erhard was born in Indiana about 1855 according to the 1870 US Census and Edward was born in Indiana on 15 Feb 1854 according to his Illinois death record. This death record also states that Edward's parents were John Hauser and "Annie Slanker". Erhard's parents were John Hauser and Rosina Unknown. Could she be Rosina "Rosa" Annie Slanker? Are theyt the same? Edward Hauser Sr. was born 2/15/1854 in Indiana and died 11/19/1938 in Wood River, Madison County, IL and buried in Oakwood Cemetery, Oakwood Avenue, Alton, Madison County, IL**. He married Frieda Buckhardt (DOB 10/1/1864 in Alton, Madison County, IL; DOD 8/29/1940 in Wood River, Madison County, IL) and she's buried with him.

*History of Sister's Hospital
Guided by a desire to care for the sick and poor, Father Christopher Bernsmeyer, OFM, founded the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis in Telgte, Germany in 1844. There, in the chapel of the Sorrowful Mother, the first five courageous members of the Hospital Sisters dedicated themselves to service to the poor in rural areas.

The Hospital Sisters continued their commitment to care for the sick and poor. In 1875, Bishop Peter Joseph Baltes invited Reverend Mother Cherubine to send the Sisters to his diocese in Alton, Illinois. Twenty Sisters, led by Sister Angelica, departed from their native Germany to begin their work in Illinois as the American Province of the Hospital Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis. After arriving in Illinois, the Sisters provided nursing care in Alton, Springfield, Belleville, Effingham, East St. Louis and Litchfield – oftentimes in their own homes. Since the Sisters were not allowed to accept money for their services, many times the patient’s family compensated the Sisters with food. Within 12 years, six hospitals had been built and the cornerstone of a seventh had been laid.

St. Joseph’s Hospital was established in January 1878. At the request of Reverend Joseph Meckel, Pastor of St. Paul’s Church, Mother Angelica Ratte sent two nursing sisters to Highland. Upon their arrival, they made their home with the School Sisters of Notre Dame. Without means to furnish even a small building for themselves, an appeal was directed to local residents of Highland who generously responded with all necessary articles – furniture, cooking utensils and even food.

As Highland continued growing, so did the need for additional nursing Sisters and a medical facility. During the summer of 1878, numerous public meetings were held to freely discuss the need for a hospital. Many feared that the hospital would not pay for itself and would become a burden for the community at large. Several noteworthy citizens believed the contrary and persisted in pointing out to the rest of local residents the advantages derived from such an institution in the vicinity.

After a public “subscription drive” was completed – whereby local residents donated money, materials or equipment – the formal dedication of the new St. Joseph’s Hospital took place on Thursday, August 21, 1879, when the structure was opened to admit its first patient, Mrs. Ring. The little two-story building provided the convent for the Sisters and room for 12 patients. Bequests, donations, subscriptions, raffles, benefit fairs, and even a musical concert, all figured in the raising of funds to pay for the new hospital.

Tragically, fire destroyed St. Joseph’s Hospital on January 24, 1892. New additions and renovations were completed in 1897, 1926 and 1937, but in June 1950, the cornerstone for the recent four-story facility addition was laid.

1875
Sisters arrived in Illinois at the invitation of Bishop Peter Joseph Baltes of Alton, IL, to provide nursing care to the sick and poor in Alton, Springfield, Belleville, Litchfield, Effingham, and East St. Louis. The American Province of the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis is founded.

Myrtle Beach, SC Bikerfest 2014

Before Stan's accident we had rented a house at Garden City for our vacation this year. Stan's mother, Peggy, and my parents, Avery and Eleanor, came with us. Stan's brother, Kenny, and his family came this week too but to their own condo. It turned out that this week was not only Memorial Day but a biker week too. We lived through the Memorial Day black Bikerfest in Myrtle Beach last weekend. Last time we came to Myrtle Beach was Myrtle Beach's white Bikerfest and we swore we wouldn't come back during that time. Now we say the same about black Bikerfest. I don't know if it's been all over the nation like it's been here but it was a hellish weekend for Myrtle Beach. There were about seven different shootings in Myrtle Beach, 3 dead and a bunch wounded. Stan took us (his wife, his 80 yr old mother and his 76-77 yr old in-laws) on a drive to downtown, like we usually do. That's where most people like to cruise, walk around & people watch. We didn't make it that far before Peggy demanded he turn around because it was too dangerous. She was right! We weren't seeing tourists and vacationers cruising and walking but hordes. The women were dressed like prostitutes. I saw one woman wearing bright pink panties with a tight, completely see-through miniskirt. At least 30% of the women were wearing shorts cut so short that their butt cheeks were flopping around for God and all to see. (And these aren't anorexic rebellious teens but hefty women, white and black who should know better.) The men aren't any more modest wearing their pants down below their butts. My goodness, this "fashion" is 15 YEARS OLD! What other fashion has ever lasted more than a season, much less a year, but 15 YEARS!?! These stupid young men don't seem to mind looking like they are so poor they have to wear their daddy's hand-me-downs. I don't know what has gotten into our young people to think that lawlessness, public lewdness, vile behavior is acceptable. This Mardi-Gras, girls-gone-wild, spring-break, your-sports-team-wins/loses wildness has gotten out of hand. Let's name it for what it is... rioting by young people (30 or younger). Breaking laws made to protect people, their property and businesses is unacceptable. I don't care who you are. If you are white/black, old/young, biker/classic car, gang member/club member - makes no difference. If you break the law, you should expect to be chased, arrested and face the full extent of the law as the consequences of YOUR actions. We watched a couple of hours of a city council meeting this afternoon in which citizens were allowed to speak. It was televised live. What we saw on our short drive was MILD compared to what these people described. Public urination and defecation, slashing tires, congregating/loitering/fighting, sex in public, willful destruction of property, garbage, drunkenness/drugs, white people being harangued/threatened/verbally and physically abused. One white woman tried to walk her dog from her home to the public beach access and the blacks loitering there told her it wasn't open to whites while one of the young men pulled his shirt up to reveal his gun, stuck in his underwear, to threaten her. The police were not helpful at all according to everyone that spoke. Whites are scared of being labelled "racist". I don't know how that label has become worse than being called a "serial killer" but it has. I'm not saying that the lawless behavior is a white or black issue. I don't like white biker week any better than black biker week, spring break, graduation week, Super Bowl, Mardi Gras or whatever. But, in this case, what WAS a racial issue was the non-response to the lawlessness. The police, and their backup (city and county councils, judges, DA's, etc) are scared to death to deal with blacks because they will be called "racist" which is somehow the worst thing someone can be called these days. This "political correctness" has made our society scared to confront lawlessness if it's committed by blacks. Allowing it and letting them get away with it because of their color is unleashing a monster. But it's the same way with college towns allowing students to get away with lawlessness because they don't want to lose their tuition monies. They don't mind being called a party university because that nomer draws students who want to party the next 4 yrs on daddy's dime. The college just wants the tuition, they could care less about the student. In fact, if the student fails, they get additional tuition money when little Johnny re-takes the class. So they let the students go crazy. The same thing happens at Mardi Gras (and that's NOT limited to "young" people). Businesses don't mind making money hand-over-fist for the "sin" behaviors (drinking/drugging/sexing). Making money on sin is pretty sordid but many do. So they want N'awlins to be known as a party city to encourage those kind of "tourists" in order to take their money. They allow stuff to go on that shouldn't see the light of day. It's not black or white, it's what you decide to allow in your community. If you allow it, look the other way, instruct your police department to tread lightly, then expect to have the sort of problems that Myrtle Beach had this past weekend. And expect the decent citizens to get scared and tired of it like the good people of Myrtle Beach did this past weekend. Girls gone missing, people murdered, innocent people being, at the least, verbally abused and, at the worst, murdered. Property destroyed. People hiding in fear like they did this past weekend. The decent people will start leaving in droves while the hoodlums take over to do their worst. It was said on TV, the police in Myrtle Beach were afraid to go downtown. A white policeman would be a fool to attempt to control the crowd without a lot of backup because the rowdies would gang up on him. The hotel and store owners were told they were responsible for forcing people on their property to follow the law. These people weren't necessarily their customers but they were on their property so it was their problem. The police said when the loiterers were on "public property" (like the sidewalks), the police were charged with breaking them up but if they were on "private property", the property owners were supposed to keep the crowd moving. So, many property owners had to patrol their own property 24/7 over the weekend but they had no way to enforce anything because the police didn't respond to their calls and if they had pulled out a gun, all hell would have broken loose & guess who would have been jailed? At the meeting it was indicated that the Mayor (and city council) were responsible for the orders to the police to ignore and hide. I think, if our legislatures (including city councils) make laws and ordinances in the light of day, they should be enforced and backed up from the policeman on the street all the way up through the judges and District Attorney's to the Governor of the State. Noise ordinances, curfews, loitering, public urination/defecation all the way up to Thou Shalt Not Murder should be enforced. If they enforce them on May 23rd, then they should do it on May 27th, May 28th, etc. If you don't have enough police, get enough! Train them! Support them and back them up! Build a new jail if you have to. Take your time and debate the creation of new laws and ordinances but once they are on the books, enforce them! No one gets a free pass because of... (whatever). The businesses, that make so much money on the tourist industry, should be willing to share that profit in order to ensure their business, staff and customers are safe for them to make money. And, if you aren't willing to enforce the laws all the way to pulling a weapon if you have to, then don't bother and let it all go to hell in a handbasket. Thugs are only controlled by good people who have a weapon they are willing to use. A hotel security guard can "suggest" someone quit or move along but no one's going to listen to him. He will merely become a subject of their animosity. He has no weapon, no way to back up his authority. A restaurant owner or bouncer is in the same boat. They can't take the liability of carrying a weapon and pulling it to force thugs to stop or go away. If they aren't allowed to pull a weapon to protect themselves, innocent customers and their property (or the property they are responsible for) then they are wide open to any thug that decides they don't want to comply with the laws or follow the rules. If even the trained police or National Guard are not allowed to pull a weapon (of course, with good reason, not just to bully someone) to force compliance with the law or protect themselves or someone else, forget it. Thugs don't care if you have a law or local ordinance, they only care if you are going to enforce it and what you are going to use to enforce it. So what kind of people is your community willing to attract? Do you want thugs, drunks, prostitutes, drug dealers, college students gone wild? Then you will suffer the results. Or do you want to attract families and responsible adults? Then make reasonable laws and enforce them. I, personally, would want to attract those who follow the laws and rules of the community; those who pay their bills; those who have respect for others; those who know how to behave responsibly and take responsibility for their actions.Their money comes without the added (and expensive) miseries that come with the thugs.

Sorry

I'm sorry I've neglected my blog lately. My husband, Stan, was injured in an accident at work. It resulted in fractured neck vertebrae, collar bone and a severe concussion. It was a very near thing. He could have been killed, paralyzed, brain damaged but God is good! He was with Stan and I through every step. He still has a good bit of pain and he's not used to it. I have chronic pain and have had for years but this is new to him. But he is back to light duty, parttime work. It scared me to death and I've been having to take care of a lot of things that I don't normally have to deal with. I've been very busy. I appreciate your prayers on our behalf and I anticipate getting back to my normal blogging soon.

Poodles

I do not breed or sell dogs. I just love them and am involved in dog rescue with my 2 sisters. I happen to love the different breeds and I find them fascinating. So when I look up a dog breed, I share it with you. So don't ask me where to buy a dog, I don't know. Just passing on information.


There are only 3 sizes recognized by the AKC: Standard, Miniature and Toy. There are no Teacup Poodles recognized by the American Kennel Club. But that doesn't stop people from wanting a "Teacup" Poodle. The Teacup Poodle is just a smaller Toy Poodle therefore smaller than the AKC standard and cannot be shown. They are rated by height rather than by weight. The Teacup Poodle is 9 inches or smaller, and under 6 pounds in weight. The Toy Poodle is 10 inches or under at the highest point of the shoulders generally weighing Weight: 6 - 9 pounds. The Miniature Poodle must be over 10 inches and 15 inches or less at the highest point of the shoulders generally weighing 15 - 17 pounds. The Standard Poodle is over 15 inches at the highest point of the shoulders generally weighing 45 - 70 pounds. Why are they such a popular breed? We tend to think of middle aged women (like me) carrying an annoying, yappy poodle with barrettes and pink toenail polish. But Poodles are anything but annoying, yappy dogs. They are a highly intelligent breed that can be trained to a high degree. There are many different grooming cuts for them but the one we recognize the best is the show cut that is so flamboyant. Needless to say, that cut is rarely used in everyday life. The Poodle has been known throughout Western Europe for at least 400 years and is depicted in 15th century paintings and in bas-reliefs from the 1st century. The subject is controversial of where the dog was officially developed and no one really knows the breed’s true country of origin. France has taken a claim on the origin, but the AKC gives the honor to Germany. The name "Poodle" most likely came out of the German word "Pudel," which means "one who plays in water." The "Poodle clip" was designed by hunters to help the dogs swim more efficiently. They would leave hair on the leg joints to protect them from extreme cold and sharp reeds. Hunters in Germany and France used the Poodle as a gundog and as a retriever of waterfowl and to sniff out truffles lying underground in the woods. The French started using the breed as a circus performer because of the dog's high intelligence and trainability. Comical and clever, it is a very good watchdog for its size, seldom becoming aggressive. They are a very versatile breed with a hunting and retrieving beginning, although they excel in any performance event you offer them, including agility, obedience, rally and conformation showing, and often one will leave one ring and go directly to another to compete again. Since they love water they are great dock diving dogs and love water retrieving. Extensive grooming is needed. Poodles must be bathed regularly and clipped every six to eight weeks. Poodles shed little to no hair and are good for allergy sufferers. It comes in all solid colors including black, blue, silver, gray, cream, apricot, red, white, brown or café-au-lait and parti-colored (white and another color). The Teacup Poodle is remarkably intelligent. Highly responsive, it is said to be one of the most trainable breeds. Sweet, cheerful, perky and lively, it likes to be with people. Delightful, very amusing and keen. Poodles need regular exercise. Opt to adopt. But if you must purchase, please use a reputable breeder and be sure you are getting what you pay for. You want to see the parents and the place they are raised, have all vet records and pedigree. Flea markets and pet stores aren't the best place to get a dog because often the dogs are from puppy mills and may not be what you think they are. For instance, I've seen puppies whose eyes are barely opened, being sold as "teacups" when actually they are immature puppies that don't need to be away from their mother and litter mates yet. You aren't seeing where they are bred and raised. They also may have diseases, worms, etc. Be warned.


These are not my dogs. I did a Google image search for Poodles. I wanted photos that show the different sizes, colors and cuts of these beautiful dogs. They are so lovely.
