Title: CVO Pets
Post by: Chief on December 05, 2006, 08:15:23 AM
After seeing how the Cat Vomit thread has morphed into a pet thread, I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could all post pictures and stuff about our furry family members.  Extra points are awarded if you can make the post CVO related, but that isn't necessary.

I'll start off with this one of Piglet and Tigger when they were about 8 wks old. (Feb. 2000)

If you resize to 800x600 it will work better. That's OK, one of the awesme mods will get it fixed in mere minutes.

Great idea for a topic.  You guys have some wonderful pets.  Sadly I lost my best buddy last October.  His name was Hooch and he was a Pekapoo.  I will try to post a picture when I get home tonight.  He wasn't the best looking dog but he was tough as nails for 10 lbs and sometimes thought he was a Rotty.  It almost got him killed a couple of times.  He made to almost 16 though so he did good.  I'm not going to replace him for awhile because I like the freedom of riding away when ever I want to without having to look for a dogsitter.  I wouldn't mind a couple of cats but my wife is deathly alergic to them.

Cheers,  Moe

I'm not sure she would put up with you callin' her the OL either.  

Politically correct term when not referring to her by name, I learned this from the d00derator, would be "wifey".  Seems just about as bad to me as OL but wifey sounds so cute I guess. [smiley=huepfenlol2.gif]
It's the "O" in "OL" that can get you in trouble. [smiley=nervous.gif] Along with the fact that some women feel the term describes them as a possession, and well you know how that can go. :o

So "wifey" can insinuate equal, non-possessive, partner and "Momma" is happy, and when "Momma" is happy.... you know the rest of the story. ;) [smiley=huepfenjump3.gif]

That's something I admire everytime I see a three legged animal or a pet that should be in constant significant discomfort but just keeps right on going.  They're smart enough not to dwell on and not worry about the stuff they can't control.

Hey Suzanne,
yes that is what they are......brothers from the same litter.  But just like kids from the same womb they are as different in personality as any two pups could be.  But they are inseparable.  BTW we call them our granddogs since we have no two legged versions (yet).

Yes.  He named himself the minute we rescued him.  Can you believe he was a throw-away.  Someone found him running the streets downtown.  Checked all over town and the county.  No one claimed him.  So we kept him.  Best Boxer I've seen next to my Annie Bea.  I am 100% convinced she is an angel.
Leaner would be a good name.  Or after that curve, bean shaped dance they do when I come home from work......Beaner!

Get well Gretchen.

I admit, it tugged at the heart everytime Gretchen would make her way to the water dish...which seemed like every 15 minutes.  Any chance one of those camelback supplies could be fitted?  Just kidding...

The only experience I recall with that breed was neighbors when i was a kid and their dog was pretty yappy and had little dog syndrome, charged everything, I think it may been the fact he lived with 5 children and discipline was most likely non-existant.

RJ,

Renea and I are thinking about a Boston as well.  Something about dogs with floppy flews.  [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif] I've never had a Boston, but I've met plenty, and liked them all.  Seem to be great little dogs.  I think that if brought up in the same environment you provide for your Boxers, a Boston will be a great dog.  Our only concern is we are so smitten with Boxers that we aren't sure we would want to be without them.  Oh well.  Plenty of time to dwell on the subject.  We'll enjoy our Boxers.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Other than Rjob749, I don't know if anyone else in CVO land is blessed with Boxers.  Renea and I are, and I'll be first in line to say I thank God for these wonderful creatures everyday.  Not long ago, Rjob749 mentioned words to the effect that Boxers aren't for everyone.  I agree 100%.  They are the #1 rescue breed, because most people do not know what they are getting themselves into when they bring an energetic Boxer into their home.  They are quite needy.  They need their humans.  They need lots of exercise to burn off all that natural energy.  They don't do well as outside dogs.  Coat is too short to keep them warm in the winter and their square, brachycephalic (smashed in snoot with highly undershot lower jaw) does not permit efficient breathing for body cooling during the summer. We don't consider these faults.
A few minutes ago I got up from my perch on the couch and left my laptop in my seat.  When I came back, Springer had laid down on top of my laptop...........obviously upset that I was more interested in spending time with my CVO friends than playing with him.  I wouldn't trade moments with my Boxers for anything.  Yet another reason I believe there are dogs, and then there are Boxers!! [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]
Title: Re: CVO Pets
Post by: RJ749 on December 28, 2006, 09:02:07 PM
There you go.  Just another "ism" from the boxers.

Our last three boxers are all rescue dogs and most likely all of our next ones will be too.  I doubt we'll ever be able to change or downsize although Q makes a good arguement for the downsized version IMHO.

Both of mine came and worked their way under my desk and pushed me out this morning, I hadn't fed them and it was 10 minutes past the normal feeding time.  Too funny, who is whose pet, often it seems we are theirs.

I'm sure Bagger would agree that if you are a dog person, a boxer is a great choice, one downside.........they sort of come in pairs.  Right now we own two 70 pound lap dogs. ;D

I think it is a breed characteristic.

Renea tried to settle on the couch in our keeping room........and the CVO Boxers wanted their place back.  Whose couch is it anyway?  When you live with Boxers, especially CVO Boxers, you don't own anything.   [smiley=huepfenjump3.gif]

You got that right Dude. Good thing I love Dogs (especially Milo and Dutch) cause whenever I'm at Beag's house they are in the middle of everything. Only place in Chateau Beagle they don't own is the Master's garage. That's off limits and they know it.

Henry,  I do think people who get Boxers don't always understand what they're bargaining for, as few pet owners seem to do any research on the breed they choose other than how they look.  Boxers are great dogs, but are quite active for a large breed, as are many of the dogs bred for hunting/herding/working.  The shame of it is that the owners don't do the things necessary to make the dogs good pets and good members of the family, so they end up in adoption or rescue operations where good people like you and Rog give them the kind of homes they need and thrive in.  :D  Kudos to you and others who give these animals a second chance!!  [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]

I have the Greyhound, Shug, that I adopted from the local adoption agency for them at the track here in B'ham.  Most of these dogs are from 2 to 5 years old when they go up for adoption, as they either didn't make it at the track, or did and at age 4 or 5 "retire".  Most people think the breed requires a lot of excercise or might be agressive.  Exactly the opposite is true, other than some of them don't do well with cats, or any other small furry animal that runs from them.  My little terrier, Nell, has never had a problem with Shug and she's only 11 inches high, but tough as a pine knot.  What most people don't realize is that Greyhound are couch potatoes!!  5 minute sprints once a day and they're done.  Sweet, intelligent animals, and many are put down every year because people have misconceptions about their needs.  If anyone wants a great dog that is clean, has NO odor, immediately trained, and gets along well with almost any other animal, please consider adoption of a Greyhound...they must be house dogs though, as like the Boxers, they cannot tolerate extremes in temperatures.  The good thing is that they love their crates!!

Also, I think almost any dog, other than two male Terriers (I had a male Aussie, who was my buddy, and got along with everybody except any other male dog, no matter the size), like having their human families, but also need another dog around, even if not their breed.  It just makes them happier, from my experience.  Some even bond with cats!  

I've really enjoyed this thread, puke and everything.

This is Misty, Deb & Molly at Goldstock 2006 http://www.goldstock2006.org/
Molly is a rescue, 5 homes in the first 11 months of her life, we have had her now for 14 months, going on forever ....

We do Golden Retriever Rescue (http://www.grrinj.org/) and every year all the rescue groups get together for one giant rescue weekend (4 day Labor Day Weekend event), 400 plus dogs with the majority being Golden's all getting together. It is crazy. This is open to anyone.

This year the highlight was musician Tom Corwin reading - promoting his book "Mostly Bob" http://www.mostlybob.com/
That is our Molly resting her head on our Misty at the top of the picture on the Mostly Bob page. This was taken during a publicity photo shoot, trying for as many Golden's with the author as possible. We have one picture with 32 Golden's and no people, quite the feat.

A very touching story of how "change and the power of unconditional love" between man and canine.
If you love animals, especially dogs get this. You'll read this book in a very short time and remember it forever.

This is Carrie, we rescued her at approximately age 7. She was a "forced" surrender. She was being used just as a puppy machine and spent most of her life life in a crate or otherwise confined.

We had her certified as a therapy dog and and her favorite job was kids reading to her at the library.
She could melt anyone's heart.

We had her for 17 wonderful months before we lost her to cancer.

I have a friend that rescues animals also.  I think she's up to 8 dogs and about 20 cats.  She's always trying to find homes for them but keeps them herself if she can't find a good home.  Lot's of times they are old and/or sick.  Seems like too many times when they are rescued they have disease and don't make it too long in a "good" environment and that's too bad.   :(

Anyway, your group is cool!   [smiley=xyxthumbs.gif]

Well, its a rainy day in Georgia, so grab your brother and hop up in Daddy's chair for some snoozin'.

Here's Tigger (L) and Piglet (R) snoozing together like they do pretty often.

They're happier here than when they were wearing the Santa hats.

Helen,
          He's not packing, he's paranoid. All cats are paranoid. Ever notice when you come in the house instead of greating you at the door like a dog does, the cat will be hidin behind the sofa or something. I mean it's like " hey cat, come out here and say hello. Who do you think pays the bills around here anyway? "  Cats are also stuck up, you know like someone from Beverley Hills or some such thing.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Sorry, Scot C. sent me a CD of Maine humor and it's got me runnin my mouth about everything.

We just lost our beloved pet( jack russell) of eight years a week ago to a road side accident. My wife sat in a chair and cried almost all that week. She had been online and looking in the paper at dogs the last few days and talked me in to going and looking at some tonight. Came home with two. I will try and get some pics in the next few days...they are awful cute...and my wife is smiling again!!! A good thing!!!

I think you mean SHE looks pissed.  Yep, she heard the camera lens moving to focus.  Annie Bea hates it when I wake her from her naps.  She's getting up there (8 years old), so she loves her naps.  But when she isn't sleeping, look out!  You'd think she was a puppy.

Aren't we all God's creation?  I think it's a little arrogant on our part if we feel that the only way to get to heaven is to be human.  Our pet's love for us is unconditional.  They don't care if we are fat, ugly, rich, poor, or whatever.  If anything they are the pure form of goodness, so they should actually have more rights to heaven than us.  Like stated previously.  Our pets are not just animals running around the house.  They are our babies and we treat them like they are our children.  Do pets go to heaven?  [smiley=angel.gif] Why not?  I think they do.  JMHO.

First off Red, I never said heaven is reserved for just humans. God's plan of salvation IS! Personally I believe animals will be in heaven. But it dosen't matter what I think, it only matters what God thinks! The only way we can know what God thinks is to look at his word, the bible. We are all God's creation but not all of God's creation will be in Heaven! My children are my babies and my love is far greater for them over any pet I ever owned. Maybe that's why Jesus came to save Mandkind from his sins. [smiley=nixweiss.gif]

Most of you have probably seen this, but I think it is fitting for these past few threads...I know my buddy, Sunny, is waiting for me...

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

My wife gave me this story on a picture frame with a picture of my dog Casey who died 2 years ago. Made me cry. It now sits on my desk. It helps me retain perspective on life.

Meet the new addition to our household. She's a pedigree Black Labrador bitch and her name is Skye.

I'm looking forward to her making a good bird dog.

I assume she is an English Lab, I have recently heard that they are much less hyper and don't put you thru the first 24 months of "lab puppy hell". I adore my lab but he dug and chewed the house apart until he was 2, then poof, he became the best dog I've ever had.

Yes she's an English Black Lab. I think you are right about the difference between the North American strain and the European strain. Ours are much more placid, especially the bitches and far less destructive, though we still have plenty who eat the house before they settle down. I am fortunate in that I work for myself and the dog goes everywhere with me so boredom doesn't tend to set in. Skye is now 18 weeks old and she has not chewed anything in the house bar her toys and a little bit of her bedding. Fingers crossed that she will stay that way.

I read a book at Christmas called "Marley & Me" about an American with an insane Yellow Labrador Dog. It should have been enough to put anyone off having a Labrador for life, but it spurred me and my wife on to get another because of the all the good stuff you get as well. Our last Black Lab was a great dog and it broke our hearts when she passed away.

Anyway here's to another 14 years or so of fun with our new addition.

Cheers,

Nige

Funny you should mention that book, my vet told me to go and get that book right after it came out. I did, then after my wife read it we lent /gave it to about 50 friends that have "Marley's". Every one of them loved the book and helped get them thru the puppy years from hell. Best part is not a single person we know would not give up their Marley's for a million bucks. Heck at this point my wife now knows better than to say "it's me or tham damn dog" because me and Charley would help her pack.

The two in the snow are 3 and 2, the 8 year old stuck her nose out and came back in off the porch, she hit the yard once for a break of about 25 seconds and came immediately back in.  The other two would stay out until they were popsicles I think.

Yes he is, very playfull, loyal, smart and hardly ever barks.   We get a lot of looks and questions when we're out and about, that's why I mentioned it.  Here in the northwest when the snow is flying and he's out, people are like.  "Why do you cut your dogs hair that short? or what happened to him?"  He hates any type of doggie clothing.  If you put a sweater on he just sits there until you take it off.  Let's Roll

Yes, we do.  He gets dark, like he is in the pic. above.  That was taken in the summer months.  During the winter he gets a bit lighter, kinda greyish.  Like I said, he's the best small dog we've ever had.  Agile, great personality, no trips to the gromers, not a big food bill, qiet( but loud if he needs to bark, protective w/ the kids, oh yeah and the poop is small (had to get that in), no huge land mines in the back yard.  Let's Roll

Sounds like a great dog...I'm afraid the skeeters in my back yard would have a field day with one of those though, so I'd better stick with the Terriers for a smaller dog.  The little Australian Terrier I've had for the last 11 years is also a good size...rambunctious at times, but a sweet dog.  And the poop is Tootsie Roll size as well.

The 90lb Greyhound, on the other hand, can lay some nice ones, and the distance they fall does not help matters...fortunately, he NEVER has accidents in the house, and goes well out into the wooded part of my yard to "do his business", so the land mines are kept to a minimum.

OK, here's Cindy sporting her new Spring cut. We call her the velour kitty right now. Once she gets over the embarassment of being almost naked, she starts acting a lot younger without all of her long hair. This is the DIY version as she's just too old to put under for a haircut.

I actually started doing this to her when she was much younger. She's amazing calm through the whole ordeal, which takes a day or two to complete as she does tire of it and I give her a break. The photos of the not-so-finished cat can be rretty hilarious because my method is get at whatever you can at the moment. It's a major hack job that slowly gets done.

Right now, its too prickly for her to get very comfortable, so she's still a bit cranky. In a couple of days, she'll shed 5 years and amaze us all how playful she gets. She'll be 18 in July.

I am amazed at the lack of jokes produced by those pictures. Usually the inuendos come fast and furious. You are all so well behaved. :2vrolijk_21:

Chief, I take mine two boy's Willie and Bobbie to get shaved at least once a year and they come home feeling so much younger too. It is so strange they really like not having all that hair. Our orange and white tabby Persian was acting like he was dying  just stayed close to his litter box and food  but now he is all over the house again both my cats are 13 years old. I would never shave them myself my cats bite the hand that feeds them just bathing them, I am not sure why they do that. I guess because Dave helps out feeding them so they think they can do with out me.

On a very sad note...while we were in Georgia this past weekend, I got a call from my Niece who cares for my two babies when we are traveling.  My Australian Terrier, Nell, has been diabetic for the past two years, and I've been giving her insulin shots twice daily to keep her going...she was 11+ years old...and would have her good days and bad.  This weekend her sugar crashed and she had a seizure, so had to be taken to the emergency vet clinic not far from my house.  She was semi comatose, but the worst part was the vet discovered a large mass in her abdomen that turned out to have spread to most vital organs...Liver, Pancreas, and Spleen.  She did not know she was in the world, or I would have come home immediately, so opted to receive reports from my Niece and the Vet most of the day Sunday.  By evening, they had no success in getting her glucose level back up, so I had to make the hard decision while on the phone with the doc Sunday night...my sweet baby girl went quietly to sleep in the arms of my niece a little after 9 PM last night.  I had the sad duty of putting her in the ground when we got home this afternoon.  She now rests quietly and peacefully alongside my other Aussie, Sunny, who I lost 5 years ago...he helped raise her from a puppy of 11 weeks old, so it is only fitting that she lay next to him under the gentle branches of a dogwood tree on a rise in the back of my yard... :'( :'( :'(

She will be missed...a very special little girl...and a very special place in our hearts...forever...hope to see you again someday, Nell...

So sorry to hear about your loss.  Pets are so precious as they give unconditional love..they don't care whether you're rich, poor, ugly, or whatever.  They see through all of that and give true unconditional love.  It's always hard to lose a loved one like that.  They always have a special place in your heart and your memories, and someday, we'll meet up with them again and all cross "Rainbow Bridge" together.

So sorry Terry.  Our condolences to you.

We had to have our Dezeri - 18 years old - assisted to cross over this June - Just before we left for Nelson.  She sleeps under a newly planted white Azalea tree.  White flowers to match the white tips on her tail, feet and a slash on her face.  I have not been able to talk of this before - it has been too painful.  When I read about Nell, it brought that pain back in memory.  I know you loved your fur kids a lot, it shows.  So sorry it happened while you were not home.

Thanks, Don.  You are the only person of the group here that got to meet Nell.

Shug is having some minor health issues of his own right now, so it is hard to tell how he is going to fare, but I can tell he is looking for her when he's in the house.  Even though she only came up to his elbows, she was female and he deferred to her almost all the time so the pecking order is changing, plus, she was here first, so his social structure has changed dramatically.

What's going on with Shug?  TC, I miss Nell and I only met her a couple of days.  Unlike The Bird Nell actually liked me.  Sat in my lap and farted, kissed, the whole dog deal.

Again, really sorry this had to happen.  Even more so that it had to happen while you were away.  Whether Nell knew it or not that makes it harder for you.

Tell Shug I'm buying some brave Greyhound dogbones in her honor today and I'll tell my little Greyhound all about him and Nell.  At least I will if I can get her to stop playing with her cat long enough to actually pay any attention to me!

He has somehow contracted a couple of forms of parasites...no fleas around, so must be the mosquitos getting him.  He was doing much better right before we left for Georgia, but has relapsed, plus the stress with Nell gone is getting to him as well.  A trip to the vet is in order today, as is cleaning carpet.  I wouldn't be worth much at work today anyhow, so will just take care of work issues from home today while getting everything else taken care of with the emergency vet clinic, telling the ex wife (I regained custody of Nell 6 months or so after we divorced, as she wanted to be back home with her daddy and Shug).  The ex is great about helping out with Nell's medical expenses, so I won't have that to worry about.  She'll have a good cry too, as she helped raise Nell and talked to me frequently about how she was doing.  It's just sad, but this is just part of owning the animals...just have to know they had it made while in my care.  Literally part of the family in every way...

Look forward to meeting the Italian version of Shug some day...never met a dog that didn't take a liking to me.

Good luck at the vets Terry.  Shug presents a lot of surface area with not a lot protecting hair for a squadron of mosquitos to zero in on.  Hope whatever the meds are don't make him feel too much worse before he starts feeling better.

You need not be at all concerned over Dizzy being a buddy either.  Dizzy loves everyone.  Whether she should or not.  She met Ken and Cheri weekend before last and it was like they were long lost best friends.  Actually, my dog may be a bit psychotic that way....  :nixweiss:

We thought the same about her. She was impossible to housebreak and we did the whole crate training too. Didn't matter where she was. Think a dog with the bladder control of a puppie, but the bladder bigger than most adult dogs.  :o But it was like a switch went off when she was 7 months. She rarely has had an accident since.

Folks,
You guys have all seen my avatar.  That's my little buddy, Springer.  Springer came to us three years ago this month from a rough first four months of life.  He was found running around the streets of Enterprise, AL.  Long story short, we got him, and he has lived VERY well since then.  He has issues.  He trembles when anything or anyone one new comes around him.  He wants each day to be just like the day before, and if it isn't, it upsets him, and he retreats to his hidey hole between our bed and the couch in our bedroom.  He's a terrific Boxer.  Loves to play "catch"..........whatever you got........in the yard, loves to be right next to me in the garage when I'm out there tending to the Harley's, but most of all, he loves being with his humans.  He's right here with me right now..........sprawled out on the floor on top of my feet.  Renea and I really love this guy.  Great Boxer.
Thursday we noticed a mass on Springer's right hock.  He's due this month for his annuals, so I took him in yesterday morning.  Fine needle aspiration reveals mass cell tumor.
Every last one of our Boxers has had at least one of these.  You'd think we'd shrug it off.  Nope.  Cancer killed Sassy Girl.  Annie Bea has had two mass cells cut from her as well as two carcinomas within close proximity of her lymph node on the left side of her neck.  The last was three years ago this month.........the very same month we got Springer.  According the "specialists" at Auburn, she should be long gone by now..................but she's well on her way to ten years old and despite her back challenges, she still roughs it up with Springer.  It can't be shrugged off.  You worry.  They're family.  Just the way it is.
Please keep my boy in your thoughts and prayers as he has surgery on 27 November to excise this cancer.  Thanks.

Henry

Will do Henry.  We had our poor Dezeri operated on in 2003 - 28 places where they removed lumps - the big one was on the wind pipe, had to be scraped to get the nasty off of it.  That surgery was extensive, but she was up in a few hours begging to come back home.  I took 15 days off work to be with her as she recuperated.  She never wanted to be far from us either.  That event, that could have been the put her to sleep event, gave her another four great years. 

I know that now there is such a thing as pet insurance, we'd never heard of it before this event.  Do you have this for your pets?

What you wrote jives with what a buddy once told me.  He's a vet here and one evening started this litany of what was most common for different types of animals.  Don't remember any of it until the end.  He said something that "and with Boxers, even if they just have a runny nose, you assume cancer until proven otherwise, it's part of the breed."

Got to be a little scary with those dogs knowing it is so likely.  Good luck Springer :2vrolijk_21: .

Well, since little Nell is gone now, and both us and my Greyhound, Shug, are missing her presence in the house so terribly, I decided to begin a search for a new household buddy.  I have had two or three dogs around for the last 20+ years...the dogs seem happier with others of their kind, or like Don, another household pet, even if different species.  They are social animals, after all, just like us.

Sooooo, in my search, I found this little guy, and knew it was meant to be when I saw his face and name.  His name is Rider... :2vrolijk_21:....Redhawk Midnight Rider to be exact.  One of my favorite songs by The Allman Brothers is Midnight Rider.  He's five months old, so not an itty bitty baby, had all shots, microchipped, and from genetically tested champion parents.  The Australian Terrier is not a common breed here in the states, so the only reliable sources are breeders who show their dogs and have limited breeding.  Usually, there is a waiting list one has to get on before pups are even born.  They are not inexpensive pups for that reason.  A great breed though, with a fiesty, sturdy temperment...not frufru dogs at all, and are serious vermin killers.  Squirrels, snakes...any small animal is not safe with one of these guys around, unless it is a part of your family.

So I just had to get him...he is from Wyoming, and will be shipped from Denver on November 30th, arriving in Atlanta less than 3 hours later on a direct flight in a conditioned/pressurized cargo area on Frontier Airlines.  We are really excited about the new addition, and Shug will have somebody to look after and stop looking around the house for Nell.

Here's a pic of Rider....

Congrats Terry on finding a new "baby" for the house.  You're like us, we have to have two or three cats in the house all the time...they do keep each other company while we're away.

....and, so that I will have two nice dogs to carry me well into retirement, I got his littermate and baby sister.  Her name is Tango...full name is Redhawk Tiny Dancer, aka: Tango.  They are big buddies, seek each other out to play and sleep, and have been best buds since they were old enough to walk around on their own.  This pic was taken a few weeks ago, so she's grown a bit since then, but is a female, so smaller, and slightly smaller in bone structure, like most female dogs.

By the way...both will be neutered/spayed prior to 9 months age.  The breeders insist on this for their non show pups...you have to sign a contract and have this done before they will give you the AKC papers for registration.

Can just see in his eyes he's already thinking "hmmm, wonder what sleeping Greyhound rear end tastes like?"

Yep, Shug is going to have his hands full with these two running around under his legs...he's got such a sweet nature though, I don't anticipate any problems, once the pecking order is established.

Sunny had that exact same face, and he was all Terrier...scared of nothing, and always "ready to go".  Rider looks like he's going to be fearless too...they are tough little dogs.

Thanks, Don.  Would love for you to meet Springer.  He is a fantastic Boxer.........a real prince!

Sooooooooooooooooooooo........everything else I've written doesn't jive?   :huepfenlol2:  Don, Renea and I have had at least two Boxers throughout our entire marriage, and I had at least one before.  In veterinary circles here in the southeast, Boxers are referred to as "tumor factories."  Everything from the benign hystiocytoma to the most malignant form of cancer.  Add to the cancers, Boxers have problems with hip dysplasia, cardiomyopathy, and spondylosis.  Annie Bea has that.  So, "Ever Vigilant" are the Boxer Parent's watchwords.

It is scary, Don, but for us.........Boxers fit.  There is no other animal that "does it" for us.  Renea and I believe "Boxers are Boxers; not Dogs."  So, as with any animal, adoption is a surefire setup for impending heartache.  And it does hurt when they leave us............but the time from their arrival to departure is so priceless........and very much a gift.  We love 'em.

Thanks again.

Well, today is the day.  Springer has surgery this morning to excise the mass cell tumor on his right hock.  Since he'll be down, he's having his gums resected (common with Boxers) his teeth cleaned, and his nails ground almost to the quick.  He'll be wearing a lampshade for the next week or so while his hock heals.  He's gonna be one ticked off pup later this afternoon, I imagine.  He's already protesting the breakfast boycott this morning.  He ain't happy.

Please keep our CVO Boxer in your thoughts today.  He's a great little guy.  Thanks.

Henry...I know the surgery will go well, and he'll be back to normal in no time at all.  You're right, he's not going to like the lamp shade, but maybe he'll leave the thing alone and you can take it off...it's embarrasing for him.  :-[   Let me know how things turn out...

Well, I hate even writing this I am very worried about my cat Bobbie he has lost lot of weight it started with the hair balls. I finnally got that taken care of but he got anorexic . He doesn't like the smell of his food and I have to give him tuna and he only eats a little bit at a time. He is old almost 15yrs but I just don't want to do the tube feeding and IV thing. I just really don't know what to do I am very sad but he isn't crying and he still walks around but he is not the same.

Kathy, I spoke with my vet he has had this most of his life but he most of the time gets better quick with the pills the give him not working yet but he is eating baby food now and drinking more I think he may turn it around I just don't want to put him through the tube feeding and IV"S they would like to do they leave them alone at night I just can't do that. I know this might not make any since to some but I treat him like I would want to be treated he is comfortable and not crying and he seems to be eating so for now I will just keep him home.

Springer is HOME!!!!   :cucumber:  All went well.  He's quite droopy, but he ate his supper and afterward, ventured outside to do his business.  The dental and gum work went well.  Should have the histopath results for the tumor excision by Friday.  We already know it's nasty from the fine needle aspirate, but we don't know exactly what type of cancer it is, which is why we did a histopath.  I'm gonna stay home with my little buddy tomorrow just to keep an eye on him.  Ditched the lampshade.  He hates it, but he'll have to wear it at night at least.  Here's a picture of him I took a few minutes ago.  He's lounging on the couch with his lambie blanket.

Hi Suzanne, Thanks so much.  He's doing very well this morning.  He ate his breakfast and went outside to make sure all is right in his world, then came back in.  Annie Bea is like a mother hen...........always checking on him.  He's still kindy loopy, but is getting his bounce back.  No limping.  I imagine that wound is gonna start itching, and that's when the lampshade will go on whether he likes it or not.

Well it sounds like he is getting the best care he can get - home with Mommy!  As long as he is eating something, I wouldn't want to put him through IVs and feeding tubes either - yuck!

I may have to break down and take one of my cats to the vet. She keeps pulling her hair out on the back end. I know it is allergies of some kind but I don't know from what. I've changed the cat food to Duck and Pea and she will only eat that if I mix in some canned food. I am mixing it with beef canned food -  no chicken. I've taken away the milk too - she really hates that. This has been going on for a while now. I've taken her to the vet before for it but they just gave her a shot that stopped her from being itchy for about 2 weeks - they said it was an allergy to something too. I read that most allergies in cats comes from food and to feed them something other than the normal stuff so I found this Duck/Pea mixture.

Hi Kathy.  Thank you so much.  Springer is quite the gentleman.  Yep, Boxers are tumor factories.  The Boxer parent is constantly looking for whatever may happen when it comes to cancer.  The two we have now and our dearly departed Sassy Girl have all had some form of cancer.  Sassy had a slew of hystiocytomas excised, and cancer eventually killed her just before her eigth birthday.  Annie Bea has had a few hystios, two mass cells and two carcinomas removed.  3 years ago this month a veterinary oncologist at Auburn gave her no more than six months...................wait, she just flew around the yard at light speed.  Not bad for a 9.5 year old who has survived cancer within close proximity to her lymph system, who has arthritis, and who is very sensitive to what she eats.  Lotsa love and vigilant care, but they return everything.........................tenfold and better.

Very true, not many dogs are more people oriented than a boxer.

Get this thing OFF OF ME RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!

He HATES it, but there's not much we can do about that.  Without it, he'll worry over his incision, possibility rip out the stitches..........and nothing good will come from that.  He hates wearing it, pants, trembles, paws at it, it gets caught on everything, and when it does he wigs out.  I could just stay home until he heals...........but that isn't feasable.  It is likely he'll spend the next few working days in daycare, since this lampshade thing is breaking my heart..........

Those things never worked with either of mine that have had it.  When Annie had acl surgery she had big stitches too and we ultimately wrapped it in some gauze and taped it.  She left that alone much better and then we just kept it out to air when home.  Worked out fine.

Vet gave him back to us like that.  He says Springer will remove the bandage............and he will.  He isn't doing anything other than licking the wound site..........right now..............but I fear he may gnaw the stitches out, and the wound is about two inches long due to the very wide margins, which were taken during the tumor excision.  The wound isn't draining, and looks really good.  Need to keep it that way.  Never mind the mess.  I can clean that up.  It's the possible blood loss, infection....................................................don't want to think about it.  Boxer daycare for the rest of the week for Mr. Springer.

Well, I suppose I should be honored he "let's" me park my SUV in "his" garage then??  :huepfenlol2:

Help him?? He's fixing to put an intercom system in there since he spends so much time out there. He asked if I knew the one more thing he needed. (minds out of the gutter people) as he was lovingly admiring the "g/fs", ONE more bike. I said...uuhhh... a divorce??  :P  :huepfenlol2: I think he's about as rurnt as yer boxers Henry!!

They are masters of shredding and working that stuff off, but with a good tape job over gauze they have a tough time getting the right angle on it, Annie mostly left hers alone after some correction from us verbally.

Maybe try spraying apple bitter on the tape too.  You'll figure it out anyway, not sure wwhy we're all specualting, good luck at daycare.

WOW!  Great lookin' Rotts.  Those guys are awesome............BIG..............but awesome.  I'd love to go outside and play catch with Springer, and trust me, he wants to do that too, but doctors orders mandate light duty until the stitches come out.  Right now, he's being really good..........but he also knows that Dad has independently articulating eyes with one on him at all times.   ;D  Further, his sister is pretty good about narcin' on him if he gets into mischief.

Thanks. Even if you are able to just put him on a lead and walk him, his sniffer alone will help reduce his stress. I'm not sure what his restrictions are though. Hope he gets well soon, I too have been thru the cancer scare with a previous Rott and know its just as stressful for you as him. Good luck to you both.  :2vrolijk_21:

Thank you very much.  We'll likely go for a walk this afternoon.  He is lead trained and knows that once he hears the snapring on his collar, it's time for business.  He isn't limping, and the wound isn't draining............just don't want to mess anything up.  It is just above his hock, and that's a very flexible area.  We'll keep an eye on it.  I hate it that we have to deal with cancer, but.......we deal with it.  It is what it is.  Having Boxers makes our home complete.

The terriers rule the house. When the other dogs are over the chase the others around, and steal all their toys. Thia was a toy horse that was on the grandkids swing that broke, I took it off and the dogs thought it was a toy!

Not sure about three, yes I am NOT.

Springer is doing great.  Dropped him off at Boxer daycare this morning.  Whenever we board the Boxers, we take them to a vet in south Huntsville.  Their boarding facilities are so nice............and quiet, without all that barking one usually experiences.  They have themed suites, and Annie Bea and Springer really like it there.  We'd like to do all their vet care at that place..............and we may yet go that route, but it is quite a long way (20 miles) from our home.  Fortunately it's close to Redstone Arsenal.  Anyway, the vet tech mentioned that Springer tried to pay too much attention to his incision, so they put a bandage on it, and he left it alone.  Still, it eased my mind knowing someone was looking after him, which made work alot more tolerable.  He's at home right now.  He's in my study with me.  He'll go back to daycare tomorrow, and we might put him in daycare next week until his stitches come out.  He's getting his bounce back.  Thanks for asking.

You guys say a little doggie prayer for my buddy Shug (my Greyhound)... :'( :'(  This all started back just before MV...one night he lost control/balance of the rear of his body, and was falling into stuff for an hour or so.  Took him to the vet the next day, and couldn't find anything wrong with him other than his ears were a little dirty, so gave him antibiotics for that.  He then got diarrhea, so back to the vet...said the meds might have caused the problem, so put him on a bland diet, with some more meds aimed at his intestinal tract.  Didn't help.  Went back, and found he had whipworms and hookworms, so medicated him for that.  He got to feeling a little better, then relapsed, so another round of meds for the worms.  It's now just before the North Georgia trip, during which Nell (my 11 year old Aussie) had a seizure, went into a near diabetic coma (she was on insulin twice a day), found a tumor, and had to put her down.  Many tears shed, and Shug was very upset over all of that...still had diarrhea.  Still eating well and drinking water.  Back to the vet for some more meds, holistic intestinal tract treatment.  Did not work.  Meanwhile, he's losing weight and getting depressed...you can see it in his eyes.  So, since my niece works for a large group of vets here, took him there Tuesday.  Still had the whipworms...must have gotten reinfected with the eggs somehow...so another round of meds and more bland I/D canned food.  He's down from 90 lbs to 70 at this point, and is showing signs of dehydration...stops eating.  Gave him a subcutaneous injection of fluids.  I tried everything...his favorite treats, three kinds of food.  Keep in mind, this is a dog who would nearly knock you down for his breakfast and supper every day.  I even cooked him some chicken breasts and white rice...he ate a small handfull of chicken, and only if I fed it to him by hand.

Meanwhile, I've made arrangements (back a couple of weeks ago) to get the two puppies...to have them for us, but also to get Shug some company again, as it was obvious part of the problem was him losing his little buddy, Nell.  This morning, I took Shug back to the new vet, desperate for them to get his fluids back up and force feed him, if necessary, while doing more tests to see what is causing the as yet unchecked intestinal problems.  He got IV fluids all day, and I thought it best to leave him at the vet, since the new pups have arrived. I've scrubbed the porch/deck with Lysol, washed all bedding, toys, cleaned carpets...everything but nuke the backyard.  More extensive blood work is being conducted to see if his pancreas is functioning properly (initial tests proved that it was), getting his fluids back up, and feeding him whatever he will eat.  More fluids tomorrow, and hopefully some better news by tomorrow afternoon.  He lost 7 more pounds since Tuesday!!  I'm afraid I'm going to lose him to whatever the f#@K has gotten hold of his gut.  These vets are some of the best in B'ham (including my old vet of 20 years), and they are stumped. Can only treat the symtoms, you know. Next step if the blood comes back negative (no bacterial infection, and pancreas/liver functions seem normal...protein is low, but what do you expect?), is sonar to see if there's anything in there.  My gut feeling is that his system is so screwed up at this point, he's lost all the good bacteria that's supposed to be there...vets are taking radical steps to slow his digestive tract down, as everything is just running through him like a dose of salts.  Poor guy...it's killing me.  I've been up at least two times every night with him for the past three weeks, so I'm lacking sleep myself, but he has to go during the middle of the night, and all I can do is listen to what's going on out in the yard when he goes to the bathroom, and it ain't a good sound.

My niece spent some time with Shug this afternoon, and assures me they are doing everything possible...there are six vets at this clinic, so lots of expertise to draw on.

So, ya'll wish me luck, and pull for Shug to make it through this and get his strength back so he can bond with the new members of the family.  I have been assured by the vets that whatever it is, there is no danger of the pups catching it (not viral), unless they get the whips from the yard.  Leaves have covered most of the areas Shug uses, so hopefully that won't happen.

On a bright note, the new Aussies are awesome!!  Wide ass open, and beautiful puppies of 5 months.  Littermates, and Tango (the female) will probably end up a show dog...that's another story though.  Rider, the male (soon to be neutered), reminds me so much of my first Aussie, Sundancer (Sunny), he's got to be the reincarnate.  There's a lot of common ancestry, so he's got Sunny's sweet but tough as a pine knot, spirit.  And Tango, the female, takes no chit from Rider...she's a fiesty little girl.  Pictures will follow this weekend sometime...

Good luck with Shug at the vets.  Write more after he comes home this weekend.  Get a little rest yourself.

Thanks, Don...you met Shug, so you know the light in his eyes, and throughout all of this, he's not lost that until this latest slide back.  Sticks to me like glue since Nell left us though, so that is part of it.  There's a lot more going on upstairs in these guys than a lot of people give them credit for.  Main thing now is to get him hydrated and get as many calories in him as quickly as possible.  Will update as the weekend progresses.

I truly hope Shug pulls through I myself am still trying really hard to bring my Bobbie back I know what you are talking about in the eyes for a minute lasr night I saw the old Bobbie looking at Dave wanting his cereal bowl Dave gave him hte last few drops he like it and he is drinking on his own now and he has also ate some of his food I am doing the baby food most of the time though. I am pulling for Shug and I know some people don't think animals should be prayed for but I sure do so I  will pray for Shug also. I can hardly believe all the sick animals but I guess it is becasuse we have such a large family so more to worry over.

Thanks Henry/Helen...hope to hear some good news today from the vet about Shug.  My niece is working there today, so he'll be in good hands, and we'll see if we can bring him home this evening.  Having the new pups around might be good therapy for him, and put a little spark in him.

Hope Bobbie gets to feeling better!

Springer seems to be doing fine and not bothering his leg, so he'll be back to normal very soon.

The pups are something else!!  They have every toy in the doggie toy basket dragged out in the den and are of course always wanting the same toy, just 'cause the other one has it.  Potty training is going well thus far, but the back yard is big and new to them, so they won't get far from me or Suzanne.  Since they are not little bitty, they have some control now, so are doing fine.  They are jumping jacks!!  Like they've got springs on their feet.  Fearless, and solid as two concrete blocks.

Vet called yesterday with Springer's histopathology results.  Low grade mass cell tumor.  Margins were large and clean.  Tumor was in close proximity to the lymph node in the hock region, but there was no evidence of nastiness in that area.  It may or may not rear it's ugly head again.  We know lymph systems from years gone by, and both Boxers get a good once over every day.  Ever Vigilant!!!  Stitches out next Friday.

Springer is pretty much............Springer.  Doesn't appear to be letting his wound bother him too much.  Not paying it any mind lately.  Right now he is do a really good impression of a couch slouch.   ;D

Last one...this is the same specie of tree, but depending on how much light they get, they range from this color to the orange/red of the prior one.

When Shug gets feeling better he's going to have a rude awakening :drink: .

Yep, he'll never know what hit him, though when he's feeling good, they'll be going "what was that streak that just went by?" 

He's still at the vet, rehydrated, and beginning to eat some again.  I'm headed over in a little while to visit...Nice thing about this clinic is they are open on Sunday afternoons.

Here's a few pics of the new Australian Terrier pups...5 months old, so the feathering on the legs and around the neck, plus the topknot is not in yet.  They are currently about as big as they will get...may grow another 1/2" tall, and put on 2 or 3 more pounds each.

Here's Rider (Midnight Rider)

Rider even looks like you Terry! Short inseam and all!!

Hi Suzanne, Thanks so much.  He's doing very well this morning.  He ate his breakfast and went outside to make sure all is right in his world, then came back in.  Annie Bea is like a mother hen...........always checking on him.  He's still kindy loopy, but is getting his bounce back.  No limping.  I imagine that wound is gonna start itching, and that's when the lampshade will go on whether he likes it or not.

I haven't been on the site in a few days and am catching up.  So glad that Springer is feeling better.   :2vrolijk_21:   Annie Bea, keep up the mothering.

Springerrrrrrrrrrr!
Vet called yesterday with Springer's histopathology results.  Low grade mass cell tumor.  Margins were large and clean.  Tumor was in close proximity to the lymph node in the hock region, but there was no evidence of nastiness in that area.  It may or may not rear it's ugly head again.  We know lymph systems from years gone by, and both Boxers get a good once over every day.  Ever Vigilant!!!  Stitches out next Friday.

Springer is pretty much............Springer.  Doesn't appear to be letting his wound bother him too much.  Not paying it any mind lately.  Right now he is do a really good impression of a couch slouch.   ;D

Got to go see Shug this afternoon...they have an IV taped to his leg to give him the fluids, so he had a clear lamp shade on to keep from licking that.  He was glad to see me, and I got to take him out to their play area outside and spend a little time with him.  He is feeling much better!!  Got a little sparkle in his eyes, is almost fully hydrated, they gave him 1/2 can of food yesterday which he gobbled down, had a bit easier time with it coming out the other end yesterday.  Ate this morning, and not gone again as of 4 PM, which is a good sign that things have slowed down in his digestion a bit.  They are feeding small quatities to ensure he keeps it down.  He ate while I was there, and did so like he used to, so things are looking better.  Waiting on the blood work to come back from Texas, and he's not back yet, so he's going to spend a couple of more days there.  He was much more perky today though, so things are looking up...hope he can process the little bit of calories he's getting now.

That's wonderful Terry.  Great to hear the Greyhound is finally feeling better.  He doesn't understand you coming and going like that but it sounds like he's getting great care now.  Hope you have him home, happy and playing again very soon.

Harley and Annie's Great Adventure


As many of you know I built a house in the mountains and have been spending weekends there.

On Saturday we decided to run to town (5 miles) for some shopping and to pick up my venison from the butcher.

We left the dogs in their kennel area (laundry room slash dog run) and off we went.  The truck was outside the garage we piled in and off we went.  We spent a couple of hours running the errands and then returned to the house.

It had been snowing all day and we got a few inches while we were gone.

Nearing the house Cindy specualted that the dogs would be in the house at large or the garage since we have lever handled doors and "Harley" the smart SOB is a master escape artist.  We chuckled about it until we hit the driveway and saw the garage door was left open on our departure. 

Yep, no dogs, Harley and Annie were on the lamb.  Crap, the chinese fire drill commeced.  Check the house in case they were there, NOT.  OK start tracking, pretty easy in the snow, I followed the meanderings of the two dogs all over the property but they always returned to the perimeter of the house.  I worked my way around it eventually surmising they must have gone down the driveway.

Imagine our panic (bad dog parents) thining of the two convicts escaped into the winter cold of 20 degrees, unfamiliar with the surroundings, hungry coyotes prowling the night woods, oh yeah, Cindy had all the scenarios going through her head.

In the meantime we have called security, the clubhouse, the neighbors across the fairway who have two boxers along with constantly calling the dogs anmes and whistling.

After what seemed like an etenity (15 minutes) we decided to mount up and hit the roads calling and driving to look for them.  Cindy needed to go in and get her cell phone.

She entered through the open garage door to be greeted by Annie coming out of the house.  I saw her and went to the door and called for Harley, sure enough here he came.

About that time my phone rang and it was security calling to say they saw the dogs in our driveway.  Wow, that was pretty good, they were out driving around looking for the dogs and in fact when we heard from the neighbor across the fairway, security had been there to tell them about the missing pair of convicts.

A happy ending to and adventurous day for the two boxers.  Needless to say, they had such an exciting time when I got up this morning nearly 72 hours later they were still snoozing and had little interest in food or water.

No telling how long they were out there, but it must have been awhile.

BIG adventure for your two "kids"!!  But it's not at all funny at the time, when you're in sheer panic mode, dry mouth, lump in your throat, and thinking the absolute worst.  Glad things turned out well, and the Boxers got to do a little exploration with no harm to themselves.  Bet that won't happen again... ;)

Not only will we remember to close the door to the garage, we are doing key padded deadbolts on the doors that would let them out of the kennel area.

Geez, but I do think they had a great time.  Fortunately the few times we had them over there we had taken walks to familiarize them with the way home and around.  The three feet of snow didn't hurt either, they aren't really snow dogs so I think their adventures kept them mostly to the plowed roads.

What is the latest on Shug and Springer?



Kathy...you are a dear for asking... :)  Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say that Shug has stayed in the hospital/vet since I took him in last Friday AM.  Although he is eating, he has lost nearly 30 lbs since this began.  What we do know at this point is that the problem is the small intestine...blood work came back OK, B-12 is lacking, so that is being given now.  Bacterial overgrowth has been curtailed through meds.  IV hydration was successful, but now he's off that and is having to drink a TON of water just to stay hydrated.  His quality of life is degrading rapidly...he has not been suffering with any pain or anything, but he is literally skin and bone.  The only diagnostics left to try are invasive ones, and at this point I don't think it would do any good but confirm what I already know in the back of my mind, but do not want to think about.  I have a practical side to me, and also have limits financially, which I have already exceeded, so I cannot keep doing things for more than a couple of days longer, if that long. 

I would never had set the wheels in motion to get the new pups had I known this was going to drag on...just assumed it would long since be cured, and the other dogs around would actually make him feel better, as he missed Nell.  Now, he's not even well enough to come home and meet his new buddies.

It's cold here now (for us), so Shug cannot stay outside all day any longer while he is having these episodes, and being inside is not an option for obvious reasons. The poor guy is embarrassed by the whole thing, even though I have never fussed at him...this dog NEVER, EVER had accidents in the house.  Quality of his life, and of his environment, must be considered.  A very hard decision will have to be made by me tomorrow if things do not improve... :bigcry: :bigcry:  Breaks my heart just thinking about it...


TREAT ME KINDLY

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend,
For no heart in all the world is more
grateful for kindness than the loving
heart of me.
Do not break my spirit with a stick,
For though I should lick your hand
between blows, your patience and
understanding will more quickly
teach me the things you would
have me learn.

Speak to me often, For your voice is
the world's sweetest music, as you must
know by the fierce wagging of my tail
when your footsteps fall upon my ears.

Please take me inside when it is cold
and wet, For I am a domesticated
animal, no longer accustomed to the
bitter elements. I ask no greater glory
than the privilege of sitting at your
feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with water, for I
cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.
Feed me clean food that I may stay well,
to romp and play and do your bidding,
to walk by your side, and stand ready,
willing and able to protect you with
my life, should your life be in danger.

And, my friend, when I am very old, and
I no longer enjoy good health, hearing
and good sight, do not make heroic
efforts to keep me going.

I am not having fun. Please see that my
trusting life is taken gently. I shall
leave this earth knowing with the last
breath I drew, that my fate was always
safest in your hand.

Hi TC,

I have a Rott who had some serious plumbing problems that were volcanic in nature. My vet sent me to Cornell University in Ithica NY which is a renowned vet school in an attempt to find his problem. They did several tests which included a scope which revealed what they termed an "intestinal disease". We thought we too were going to lose him but the hot shots at Cornell were able to save him. If you PM  me with your email I will scan and send you the medicals from the college in the event it may help.

Anyway, I'm real sorry to hear about your pooch. Try to keep your head up.

Very, very sorry to read about your Shug.  We went through this twice last year, and frankly, it still tears me up.  Saw a cute little King Charles Spaniel at the Techmount place today and it reminded me of my beloved brit, even though it looked nothing like him.  The mannerisms I suppose.  Not anything anybody ever wants to go through.  Thoughts are with you.

Very sorry TC.  Truly.  In some ways it hurts worse than people.  Though it sounds like you're consigned to the fact that Shug is ready to chase those great squirrels and rabbits in the sky that all Greyhounds look forward to I'll still hope for a sudden and miraculous recovery.  Really really sorry about both the dogs man.

Terry and Suzanne,
Sorry to hear about what Shug's going through.  It's always harder when pets get sick, because they don't understand what's wrong, just that they're not feeling well and they can't do the things they like to do.  We've been in this position many times with our babies of the past, and it's never easy.  I hope that Shug makes a miraculous recovery.  All the best and the new babies look like they'll definitely keep your hands full.

Thanks so much to everyone here for their support, and to those who sent me PM's expressing their sorrow for what has been going on the last few days with Shug.  After a consult with a specialist in California, the only thing left to do was exploratory surgery, and I just could not put the poor guy through that.  Everything that could be done was done, so Shug went to sleep in my arms about an hour ago.  Many, many tears have been shed today knowing that I had to do this, but my buddy let me know this morning that it was time.  I love you Shug, and if there's anything after this, I will see you again.  You will forever live in my heart....

MAY I GO?
 
May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.

I want to go. I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.

To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears.

I'll not be far, I promise that,
and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go.

Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you, too.
That's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.

So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.

~ Susan A. Jackson ~

You and Diva need a little time to get better yourselves now.  Play with the new puppies.  Let the bird terrorize a stranger if you're looking for entertainment.  But take a little time for yourselves to get your heads back in a good place.

It breaks my heart every time I read this last line, reminding me of my own best friend.

Terry and  Suzanne,

Mahota and I send our deepest condolences for the loss of one of your 'kids'. We never had the chance to meet Shug, but it sounds like he was one heck of a guy.

Our hearts go out to you both.

Warmest regards,

Doing the right thing is not always the easiest thing, but in the end, it's best.

To Our CVO Family,

I have been wanting to post this to each and every one of you for your kind words and support during Shug's illness, but I have not been able to get through the tears.  It has been so difficult to watch our little Buddy get sicker, and we felt so helpless.  We had so much hope that he would not leave us.

He was such a gentle soul, so much fun, and he had such a wonderful dad who rescued him and took such good care of him and loved him like a son. 

We will miss him deeply.  The tears are still flowing.

Again, bless you all for caring.  It has meant a lot to us.

I wasn't expecting to be crying myself when I logged in a few minutes ago.  Normally I'm laughing by now.  Terry, thanks for posting the poem and letting us know about Shug.  Sounds like you have your hands full with the two pups now.  Hang in there Terry and Suzanne!

The puppies are wonderful, truly a God send.   :)   They're adorable, and always good for a laugh or smile.  Today we took them to the vet for their check-up and they charmed everyone.  Afterwards we went for an hour walk and all of us are pooped, but happy.  The siblings stick very close ... can't imagine having one without the other.  They're sleeping through the night.   :2vrolijk_21:   Right now they're stretched out side by side, sound asleep. 

In my next life I'm coming back as TC's pet.   :)

Well, I hate even writing this I am very worried about my cat Bobbie he has lost lot of weight it started with the hair balls. I finnally got that taken care of but he got anorexic . He doesn't like the smell of his food and I have to give him tuna and he only eats a little bit at a time. He is old almost 15yrs but I just don't want to do the tube feeding and IV thing. I just really don't know what to do I am very sad but he isn't crying and he still walks around but he is not the same.

Well my Bobbie is gone I had to put him down today, I am very sad and it hurts but he in not in pain anymore that's what matters. I will never forget that ball of fur.

There have been too many of these lately.  Sitting here right now leaned back in the chair, legs crossed, an Italian Greyhound curled up in that surprisingly small circle Greyhounds can make in my lap with the keyboard across the arm of the chair and one knee.  It may sound contortionist, but it works.  And the dog is dreaming the dream of bunnies and squirrels to be chased.

Sympathies to each of the families that have dealt with pets' health and passing.  Whenever the time comes it'll always be difficult, and painful.  Best wishes to the families and new pets that will inhabit and enliven them as a bit of time passes.  Even the damned bird.

Last Monday, we had to take Brisco in to have a growth removed from the edge of his eyelid.  He was not happy to come home with a cone...and he would be there trying to scratch  but all we would here is his claws against the plastic.  But once he figured out that we would schratch his neck an chin for him he definately relaxed and does not hate us as much.

I am thinking of adding antlers to the cone...

Bob, there are SO many "----doodle" or "----poodle" variants out there.  Hear people explain that they just love poodles or something and the mixes are just oh so cute.  Never having been a big poodle fan myself I always just took as meaning that girl poodle dogs are easy and will screw anything.... ???

I too am not a real fan of the poodle... but I believe a lot of this is attributed to the dander issue as poodles are one of the few breeds without.
Maggie Mae is quite lonely since Dezeri passed this last summer and I keep the annoyance level high with Candy by talking about a new friend for Maggie. Anyone here ever had a Min-Pin? I have only seen one (personally) before and it had no idea that I was the bigger of the two of us.

The mom was a golden retriever and the dad was a miniature poodle.  The dad didn't even get any satisfaction as she was artificailly insemenated.  Both the parents are supposed to be smart breeds and with the no/low shed we figured we would try something different.

Have never had a min-pin, but a friend of mine at work has two of them, and loves the breed.  They are fiesty and strong willed, like some of the Terriers.  Manchester Terriers are similar in nature and to some extent, appearance.  A good one will cost a few bucks...buy from a reputable breeder, not just a backyard breeder, and definitely not from a pet store.

One of the best house dogs in the world is a Greyhound, and there are lots of them looking for good homes after retiring from the track.  They are sweet, gentle animals, and absolute couch potatoes....VERY laid back.  Already crate trained, housebroken, neutered/spayed, all shots, teeth cleaned, etc...Generally, you get them anywhere from 2 years old to 5 years old, depending on if they liked to race.

My sister just called to say that her cat was perched on their garage door when they came home, but they didn't see him.  The door severed part of his leg.  They rushed him to the vet and tomorrow morning will amputate his leg up to his hip.  Sure hope he makes it through surgery and that he has just used 1 of his 7 lives.  We don't know how old he is.  He just showed up at their house one day. 

Our family has had a lot of pet problems this month.  Nell and Shug, my daughter's dog has just been diagnosed with pancreatitis, he's 12, and now her cat.   :'(

Wow! :o what a freak accident - poor kitty!

No, you all haven't had a good month with pets. My dog got pancreatitis too when she was about 11 and the vet told me if I  hadn't got her in when I did he wouldn't have been able to help her - it was terrible.  She couldn't even walk.

I had trouble visualizing it as well but know they have a garage door that lifts when they open it.  I'll tell my sister that inquiring minds want to know and will get details.  I just talked to her, and KK is out of surgery.  They amputated to the knee rather than the hip, he's sedated, resting well, and will go home from the hospital Friday.   :2vrolijk_21:

My sister sent a reply to my e-mail entitled "Inquiring Minds Want to Know".  They have no clue how the accident happened.  There is not enough room for KK to sit anywhere near the door when closed, yet his blood is on top of the door about 3" in from the rail.  He may have been sitting on the inside opener unit and jumped in the track of the door as it approached him.  However, this would have put the blood stain on the outside of the door rather than the inside.

KK always wanted to be an inside cat, but his "dad" would not allow it.  My sister would sneak KK into the house when her husband was not there.  For the most part, he spent cold days in the garage or exploring outside during nice weather. 

KK is recovering nicely and will go home from the vet tomorrow.   :)  Now KK will be an inside cat.   :)  I guess he decided it was worth using 1 of his 9 lives to accomplish same.  KK rules.   :2vrolijk_21:

Because so many here have shown such devotion to their pets, and provide such great homes for their 4-legged "kids", I'm going to throw this out there for anyone who might be looking for a great addition to their family...

The breeder I got the two pups from has one more pup available...like mine, he is almost 6 months old, so is all but housetrained, and about as large as he will get.  The breed is Australian Terrier...Google it and you will find information on the breed.  For anyone who is looking for a small (18lb, 11" at the shoulder), tough, people oriented, easy to care for (little grooming) dog, this breed cannot be beat.  I've had at least one in the house for the past 20 years, and can't imagine life without one of these guys in the house.  This is not a fru-fru dog, despite it's small size...they were ratters, snake killers, and companions for Australian farmers, and were developed to work catching vermin around the farm all day, then live in the house at night.  Not yappy dogs, but will let you know when something's not right.  Fearless.  The males do not typically do well with other male dogs, especially if they are not neutered. 

This little guy is named Cowboy...he has the potential to be a champion show dog, if anyone was interested in doing that, otherwise, the breeder requires that he be neutered.  Either way, he'd make a great family pet.  Great with children, and just generally a very friendly breed, unlike some of the other Terriers.  They are not inexpensive, but well bred animals rarely are.  If interested, shoot me a PM and I'll get you in touch with the breeder...she lives in Wyoming, but the pup can be flown out of Denver...in many cases, non stop.  She is very particular about who she sells to, but is looking for a loving home for this last pup.  If not, she will show him beginning in February.

Here's a couple of pics of Cowboy...the hair is just starting to grow out...they get some extra length around the neck, top of the head, and around the legs...the body stays short.  A brush and a quick combing once every week or so is all the grooming required, and they do not shed.

The Aussie Terriers are wonderful pets.  Rider and Tango are asleep at my feet.   :)   They are very loving but tough as nails.  These little guys are house trained, crate trained, and delightful. 

I'm sure that Cowboy is also house trained, crate trained, and delightful as he is their sibling.  There's no doubt that their breeder cares a lot about her animals and goes to great lengths to make sure they are well trained.

Rider and Tango were shipped non stop from Denver to us in Alabama and showed no signs of trauma from riding in the plane.  They were happy to see us at the airport, and they acted as if they knew us already.  So, Cowboy would make a wonderful Christmas gift and could be shipped to you.   :)

My sister is so happy to have her cat inside.  Now if she could just get her husband to live in the garage.   ;)

Well, some bad news on this end. I had to put my baby (dog) of 13 years to sleep Saturday night. We don't have any emergency vet hospitals around here so I had to take her up to Chesapeake (1.5 hours away). She was in extreme pain and I had no idea what was going on - it came on so sudden. She had lost a lot of weight the last six months and was feeble but still a very happy dog. I headed up to the hospital about 10 PM on Saturday, Brian was not home but I did talk to him and he said to definitely take her. I didn't know if we were even going to make it to the hospital. They took her right in and they did x-rays and found that her stomach was inflated and it was pushing all the other organs and it was starting to twist. I have been noticing her having a little different stance the last week or so but I didn't think anything of it because she wasn't feeling sick (not that I could tell). He said they would need to do emergency surgery to try and keep the stomach from twisting. I told him no, she was too old to undergo major surgery like that. I really don't know if she would have fully recovered. Also, the bill for the surgery was going to be between $2,000 and $4,000. If she was a puppy maybe but not with a dog her age.

She was a big part of my life and it is very hard right now to even be writing this. It was such a habit for me to take her out at certain times and take her for walks every night. Yesterday and today I just feel kind of lost. I know time will heal and I will never forget her. She sure as heck tried my patience alot and she knew that I was a push over but I still love her and always will.

aawwww *HUGS* ...Kathy

I'm SO very sorry to hear about your loss. You have my heartfelt condolences on the loss on not only your sweet dog but such a long-term best friend! I'm so sorry that you had to make such a tough decision. Whenever I've had a dog pass on I just imagine them running in a field of flowers chasing butterflies!!

May your heart heal from the pain and stay full of great memories!

Kathy...so very sorry to hear about this... :'( :'(  Believe me, all you can do at this point is try and think about what a great life your dog had with you, and give yourself some time to get over the loss. Her pain is over now, and you did the right thing.  Let me know if there's anything I can do to help!

 Kathy I am so sorry, it is never easy and to have to do that alone must have been terrible for you.
 Puppies are good for walks, puppy kisses, shredding newspaper, running through the yard with your underwear, pooping on the carpet when you have company that you were just bragging to about how successful potty training has been going.
Gotta-love-em they are so cute and when they are asleep they are sooo good.

Thank you all so very much for all the heartfelt messages. I greatly appreciate it and it does make me feel a little better. She will be missed so much but as everyone has said, time will heal.

Too many of us have had to go through this, some of us more than once, in the last couple of months.

 Kathy,

I am soooo sory that you had to go through this too. People say time will heal, boy it sure takes a lot to get a little. We lost our girl (17 yrs) just before Nelson and it is still raw, and reading all these recent stories keep it right up front.  :bigcry:

But every day is better than the last. As many have said here, I have to remind myself that these members of our families have a shorter lifespan than we do... We provided them many great opportunities and long, healthy lives... the love we shared will not fade away, but allows us to share in ways we never knew we could.
I miss my little girl very very much and I know that she was a very happy girl and that is how I still see her.
I am so sorry for your loss as I am for all those who have lost so much recently.

You are so right about that, Kathy.  There is nothing quite like coming home from a stressful day and having your four legged buddies greet you at the door, happy to see you, and expecting nothing more than a smile and a little lovin'.  It washes the day right away... :)

B B, I know of what you speak.

I have Harley and Annie at the office today as we were having a laurel hedge trimmed and the dogs couldn't stay in the kennel.

If Harley was n't so much a handful it would be fun to have them here all the time.

Annie is very old in boxer years and Cindy and I often wonder how much more time we have to share with her.

Wow, a lot of people have lost pets or had them injured recently.  We had a dog (Elke) we had to put down this past summer after having her for 14 years.  She was the most traveled dog in the world as she moved with us from Pennsylvania to Italy, visited Germany/Austria/Switzerland, moved to Maine, then moved back to Pennsylvania.  My youngest son who is now in college can not even remember a time before we had her.

She got a progressive nerve condition (similar to MS in people) and the hardest decision we ever had to make was to put her down.  I still can't bring myself to walk over the place in the hallway where her kennel was.  We still have her dog collar (Harley orange and black of course), a picture of her and one of her toys on a shelf near where we used to keep her kennel.

My heart and sympathy go out to all of you who have suffered pet loses or injuries.

I truly apologize to all who have lost their animal friends and posted about it recently for my seeming lack of sympathy. Every time I start to write something I get water running from my eyes thinking about how much longer I have to spend with Mickey the wonder dog. He's been with us for almost 13 years and the thought of life without him - - - - - - well now maybe you understand why I haven't posted on this thread.

We all understand Brian, no need to apologize. It is always hard to think or talk about it but sometimes it does help to talk about it with others.

Kathy...you are correct.  It does help to talk/write about it.  In fact, there would have been no way for me to talk to anyone about what was going on with my buddies, as they wouldn't have understood me between the sobbing, but I was able to write about it....it helps, Brian, and I hope your bud stays with you for as long as is possible.  You'll know, and you've got people here who understand and will support you when that time gets here.

These pics are from my crappy cell phone camera, we'll get some good pictures out from the real digital camera.

Here's pic #1

Oh man I just want to jump through the screen and pick her up. She is sooooo cute!
If you want to see what she will look like in about 2 years (& 20 pairs of shoes, several lawn irrigation heads, a couch or two and too many appliance cords to count). But I would not trade him for anything in the world.

Go out right now and buy Marley And Me. It is a very easy read and there is no way you will be able to put it down until the last page. :2vrolijk_21: :2vrolijk_21:

Sweet face, and a nice head.  You and Brian are gonna' have your hands full for the next 12-18 months!!  Better shut all closet doors, bedroom doors, get a crate for her to sleep in or be in when not supervised...oh, and a MOP too   ;)

She's a cutie and I know you guys are going to enjoy her!!

All so true!

What an adorable little baby.  Kathy, I know you and Brian both are going to love having her. 

And yes, all of us lab lover and owners know that there is that 2 some year oral fixation that they just have to go through.  We actually got a lot - and I mean a lot, and when you think of a lot, triple it - in chew toys for our Maggie May.  That was of course after the chair, the couch, some electrical cords, my one and only boots I could ride a motorcycle with at the time, I can't count how many hair thingies,.........   We put them in a Maggie toy box.  We emphasized that any of the toys that were in Maggie's toy box were hers to chew on, pull out, drag around the house and yard at her will.  It was not perfect, but it did seem to help with that anxiety that labs go through when bored or separated from you.  We had to get the strongest chew toys - usually reserved for the rottweiler breeds, anything else she'd devour in seconds.  But over time, she learned what was hers and what was not.  Just one pair of shoes.  And like magic, one day, all the chewing was over with.  Now we have a heaping box of chew toys.  Surprisingly now - Maggie is about 6 years old, every once in a while she drags out a toy to play with. 

It is just so very much fun and fills your heart and home with that unconditonal love.

Love the labs... too bad we want to go to the same things, I wanna call dibs on puppy sitting, but we'll both be looking at the same time. And don't even think about the doggie carrier tour pack, once she hits 90 pounds you won't want her up there.
Best of luck with the little QT!  :2vrolijk_21:

Kathy...the new pups were already crate trained when we got them, but they did not like it when I put their crates in the next room, so I took the breeders advice and put them in our bedroom.  I don't have a large home with large bedrooms, but I moved some stuff around a bit and got the two crates in there.  Now they sleep like angels all night long....well, from about 11pm to 6am anyway.  Sometimes they will sleep in a bit more.  I think they like to hear me snore   :D :D

Crate training is the ONLY way to go with a pup...it may be hard the first night, but don't give in!!!

Of course, you can always get ANOTHER dog to keep her company!!!  ;D ;D

I have a lab puppy about 7 months old.  We have a crate and is always supervised when out.  Chewing is an issue no doubt.  She shortened the laces on my Harley boots.  What's amazing is how fast she can dig a hole and leave nothing to fill it with.  Where did it go?   :nixweiss:   When I dig a hole I get too MUCH left over.....

Love the pictures.  Enjoy the puppy.  BTW, the puppy smell goes away after about 3 months.  Don't know where that goes either.  Somewhere with the dirt I suppose......

2 Years!! Oh my gosh. She does try and chew everything. Luckily I didn't buy that new couch that I wanted! I've only bought her about six toys so far. I bought her this squirrel hand puppet last night at Food Lion and she's been dragging that around. We keep a good eye on her when she is not in the crate. As you know things could get out of hand real quick if she was left alone.

Do you brush your dogs teeth? If so, how often? We haven't done grooming yet.   

She is fun and very docile but we try and work her hard in the evenings with play/training and such.

Last night was kind of bad. the first night Brian slept on the couch with the TV going all night and we kept her out in the living room. She did better. Last night Brian slept in the bedroom and we kept her in the living room. We turned off the lights and she wasn't calming down so I turned on a light and that quieted her down. Then around 2 I woke Brian up to take her outside and then she wouldn't calm down again so Brian banged the crate and shut up. I'm thinking, she was lonely like you say and maybe we will take her in the bedroom with us tonight and see how it goes. Our your dogs facing you in their crates or do you have them facing away from you?

NO WAY  - please don't give Brian any ideas!! I don't think he has the energy to keep up with 2!

She hasn't started digging yet and thanks for heads up on the puppy smell, her breath - YUCK! Maybe toothbrushing will help that smell go away faster!

Kathy...seems things are going very well.  

I do have the two crates positioned so that the pups can look out the door and see our bed, and probably see at least part of me...they must, 'cause they will start whimpering a bit if I start moving around much in the morning when I'm waking up. I have the plastic crates with the vents on the side and wire door...more like a "cave" for them.  If you have the wire type crate, you might try putting the rear up against the wall, then cover the top and sides with an old beach towel or blanket, leaving only the front open for viewing in/out.  I have a smaller wire crate in the den set up like this, and Rider (the male pup) will go into it on his own when he gets tired of Tango pestering him and wants to nap.  Typical guy, huh?  ;)  7 or 8 hours is all they can wait...even a grown dog.  Mine are now 6 1/2 months, and go about 7 hours in the crate at night.  Puppies do not get any real control over their bladder/bowel movements until they are about 4 months, then you can expect some real changes in their patterns...until then, it's just every time they eat, wake up, finish playing, etc.  I've found with all my dogs during my lifetime, the key is to keep them on a pretty tight feeding/watering schedule, even into adulthood, then their pooping is more predictable.  I do not believe in the never empty food dish for a dog, nor the once a day meal.  Their blood sugar gets low, just like ours, so two meals per day is better, IMO.  I feed 1/2 the daily amount when I get up (or they get me up), and then the other 1/2 around 5-6 in the evening.  If they do not eat the food within 5 minutes, it gets removed.  This encourages them not to become picky eaters.  Ideally, if you can eat just a bite of something, or even drink a little something before giving them their food, it helps establish you as "pack leader", as the leader always gets to eat first in the dog world.  Same with going through doorways, etc.  It also helps to take them for a walk prior to feeding, if that's possible...make them "work" for their food...but that's not always practical or do-able.  

Never, ever, ever, give them any of your personal belonging for a chew toy, no matter how old the article is...a puppy cannot possibly tell the difference between an old raggedy slipper you don't care about and your favorite pair of boots or tennis shoes...it all smells the same to him, and with a lab, or any dog for that matter, it's smell first and all other senses second.  If they get something they're not supposed to have, give them their chew toy and take the other away.  Repeat 1,000 times.... :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2:  They also read your body language and "vibes" like a book, paying MUCH more attention to that than any words you speak, even after they learn what the word means.  Studies have shown that a dog can detect body position changes as small as 1/2" in humans...so leaning slightly forward, or backward, is significant to a dog.  Eye contact is particularly significant...even in humans.

I don't mean to go off on tangents like this, but the stuff is interesting to me, so I read a lot, and behaviorism was my field in college, working with emotionally disturbed children for 4 years paying for school.   I still work with some emotionally disturbed children, they just happen to be 30 - 65 years old, and get paid to be here.... ;) ;) :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2: ::)  I'm in HRM....

You are very educated on this stuff. I did buy a book on training a lab and our neighbor gave us a book on labrador retrievers so we've been reading a little bit. Like everything else you hear different things from different people, I guess you find what works and stick with it. We will try the crate in the bedroom tonight, we have the plastic kind too. It's actually a big cat carrier but it is big enough for her and we also bought the large one to use as she gets bigger.

Brian has been feeding her half the portion of the recommended amount around 7 AM and then the other half around 6:30 PM and she is a real chow hound. No problems with eating that is for sure. He waits about 10 minutes and takes her out to do her stuff.

She's had her first round of boosters and then we made an appt for her to our vet next week. 

No, we haven't given her anything personal to chew on, we did read that that was a definite no, no.

Funny! My cat has a sock fetish. He will find dirty socks in our dirty clothes bin in our bedroom and drag them down to his food bowl. If we go out of town for a couple of days there will be a trail of socks leading from our bedroom to his bowl, it is so funny! I've seen him do this too, he's always so stealth about it but I've heard him digging in the bin and grabbing one - it is so cute.

Brian has taught Jade how to go up and down the stairs now so we will really have to keep an eye out so she won't get to the shoes downstairs! She's been playing with her brother all day as Brian is fishing up in Virginia. I am sure she will be glad to see him when he goes to get her later on.

Well Brian took Jade to her first vet appointment. Actually her second but the first with our vet. The dr said he's never seen a more docile Lab puppy. He said that Brian did a good job with picking her out of the litter. He said we better be sure we give her lots of exercise because she is so laid back (just like her Dad)! She's fifteen pounds now and the dr says that she is going to be a pretty good size dog. I'd be happy with 60 lbs - that's how big Lou was in her heyday and that was big enough. I'll post some more pics if I can get the camera off of the boat tonight. I took some video last night of her first bath - how cute and she behaved so well; we were shocked.

Well Jade and I took our first boat trip today. It was so nice on the ocean that I decided to take the skiff to chase the rockfish instead of using the Donzi. Jade slept between my legs the whole trip. Even when we boated 2 fish, 36lbs and 28lbs, she just licked their face and went back to sleep. No barking, just one docile dog.
The trip home was a little rough. The wend changed to offshore and the ocean got rough for the skiff. Jade moved a little to the rear of the skiff, where it was a little smoother ride. She drank water on the boat, so my thought was that she would pee on the deck. NOPE. she held it till we hit the dock, then as soon as her feet hit the concrete, she must have peed a pint.
Well she is now going to fish the tournament this weekend with us, since she was that good.

Not bad for a 9 week old pup :2vrolijk_21:

She is a cutie pie, Kathy and Brian!!  Great to hear she is doing so well, both on the boat, and with the housetraing.  She looks like a good one, and will love both of you for a very long time!!

She looks like a fine one. The picture with her sleeping with Brian reminds me of my eleven year old. I have almost the same exact picture with her sleeping in the same pose on the bed when she was little like that. I wish I could post that but it was eleven years ago. Anyway she looks like a fine one, can't wait to see her as she grows. Good luck with her.

You just reminded me of the bitter apple.  You can buy it at any pet store - in spray/non aresol. and spray it on the things that she seems to be interested in chewing on.  Very quickly they become unattractive to her. 

Very much a cutie.  We all love puppies.

Would love to get a dog, but with our lifestyle, we just would not be fair to one.  We would treat 'em like a king, don't get me wrong, but we are just not home enough nor close enough to go home at lunch time.  But when we retire!

Here are some more pics - these are from last week - sorry don't have any yet of her on the boat. Maybe Brian will take some this weekend.

They can be...until they leave little surprises in the bathtub, or whizz in the A/C and Heat vents out of spite.  I love 'em, and have owned some nice cats, but I've had one or two who were the Devil's spawn, I think.... ;)

The younger one we have was up on top of the upper cabinets a few weeks ago. I'm in the other room, 10:30pm, I hear this awful crash and glass smashing, I race into the kitchen and he's looking at me like, "Man did you see that, I wonder how that vase fell?" Glass everywhere, all my shoes and the broom are on the opposite side of the kitchen which was now covered in clear glass shards. Oh yeah they're a joy!  >:(   :huepfenlol2:

Brisco, the upside down one, will be 14 in Mar....on my sisters' birthday...gues who's we celebrate! 

Brisco's Sister, Dixie Lee, developed Cronic renal failure when she was four.  We gave her all types of medicine and increasing subcutaneous fluid (IV Bag, needle between shoulder blades) until she was almost eight years old.  She started to fade fast one week and we made the tough but right decision.  Now Anne is always worried when she sees Brisco near a door...Dixie, at the end was always looking to get out of the house, presumably to go find an appropriate place for her to meet her end........animals are smarter than us humans when it comes to death.  At the time, we had just bought our new boat and decided to name it Dixie Lee....the dinghy was referred to as Brisco...he didn't appreciate it!

Indoor cats and the worst we have had is a tipped over Garbage Pail...and a Broken Waterford  Crystal Pitcher.

Bill, I've had a couple of animals go out to never be seen again when they were older.  I think they do know, especially cats.  I love cats too, just don't have one at his point in time.  They are definitly easier to take care of when away.

They're really sweet, but man, do they play rough with each other!!  They get pissed every once in a while, then kiss and make up 30 seconds later.  They are as tough as pine knots, and have some seriously powerful jaws and neck muscles...a rat or a snake wouldn't stand a chance.

It's great to get sibblings...they are the same age, so they can play the same way.  Chester was too much for Oliver after he started getting bigger, so we got Chelsey from another litter of the same parents.  So Chester now had a playmate the same age, and Oliver could go back to being less annoyed.

She gets on the middle shelves we have, about 48" off the floor and stays there so Abe can't get at her. After about an hour and I'm well back to sleep she launches off the shelf and onto me and of course couldn't have aimed better if she tried... :-X Ouch, I just got up and left for work.

She looks like she was a sweetie, Ed. 

Cowboy might have been handy to have around, to give back as good as he got.  But Cowboy has found a nice home in the breeder's home town, and will get to be shown by the breeder so he can become Mr. Stud Dog.  The new owners have another Aussie named Harley (neutered), so they will get along fine.

Cats on the noonies at inoportune times can be most uncomfortable!!

This week I was driving through a little town, middle of nowhere, & saw 2 dogs waiting to cross the road at an intersection.  Little medium sized brown mama dog watching a larger black/brown brindle colored dog - looking at him anxiously.  He was staring intently at the intersection & the cars & trucks going by.  Not sure why I noticed them - just a couple of mongrel mutts. They were wearing collars & in good shape so figured they must be someone's pets.   I was stopped at the light & traffic was busy, considering.  He made a false start once or twice - when he moved she would also, but he would back up & so would she due to the car traffic.  She looked anxious, if dogs can look anxious.  Traffic finally cleared & they made their way to the produce stand across the street - maybe the guy there owned them, maybe they were just exploring.  Found their behavior interesting - the male was older, & the young female was taking her street crossing cues from him.  Evidently he knew the program, since he did not dart into traffic even once.  Smart dogs, & they put a smile on my face that morning.

I know I have shown you guys the Harley dog before, but I don't think he has shown off his HD collar...

Also  I have friend that is into Pitts, he gave this nice halter collar to the Harley dog for a Christmas gift. What do you think of this thing? I think he looks great in it and when he is wearing it he really thinks he is cool...

That's great.  Glad they're enjoying it then.  One of the (few) problems with the IG's, probably was the same with the big one, is not much meat on their bones.  They really don't like the cold :P .

Don...as soon as the deck got enough on it for them to wrestle in it a bit, they were soaked.  The breed has a hard outer coat where it's black, with some feathering on the legs, around the neck, top of the head.  Not a true double coat, but very thick and hard to penetrate.  They were bred to keep rats and snakes killed, so the coat served a function...they have the teeth of a dog twice their size...powerful little dogs in a 15-18 lb package...feel like little concrete blocks.  We have to get them the "agressive chewer" toys, as they kill the normal ones quickly.  Very sweet to people though, unlike some of the Terriers, who are wary or one person dogs.  These guys love everybody, but ready to scrap with another dog if it acts dominant...they have no idea how small they are...

From the pictures here and your prior descriptions not at all surprised by that combination.  That's got to make them a lot of fun while they're still in puppy mode.  Having the two together will obviously keep them playful longer than they'd be as singletons.  But at what general age does this breed normally "grow up" and lose its puppy-ness?

At about 18mos they are cosidered "grown", or a better word might be "mature".  They won't get much bigger in size than they are now, but all of their coat will not come in until about 18mos.  At now 7 months, they are WFO when they are awake...you'd think they were killing each other they play so hard.  Been a couple of "puppy fights"...but when push comes to shove, Rider's size and muscle mass will get the best of Tango, but otherwise, he lets her pester the chit out of him.  He's about 2 lbs heavier, and that ratio will remain about the same.  He'll end up at about 18-19, and her, about 15-16.  They feel much heavier when they hit your chest or shoulder sitting on the couch   :o

Rider is plastered up against my leg, with Tango laying curled up next to him as I type this.  It's early afternoon nap time... :)

It took me a while to figure out why his front paws looked goofy, I had never seen this, but some friends say they have seen before. He has got 6 toes on each front paw, two dew claws on each paw. It makes his feet look like little clubs.

When we were in Key West last year we visited Earnest Hemingway's home.  A lot of the cats there have six toes. 

The story goes that a sailor gave Hemingway a six toed cat (which are called Polydactyl) as a gift and the cats there today are descendants of that cat.  Sailors in those days liked to have six toed cats on their ship for two reasons.  One, they were considered good luck.  Two, the extra toes helped in catching rats and climbing the ships rigging.

Here's a link with more info on the Hemingway cats:

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,

The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack   Beating me to the bottom is not the object.   Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed.   I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort.   Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep.   It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible.  I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom.   If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open.    I must exit through the same door I entered.  Also, I have been using the bathroom for years -- canine or feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt.  I cannot stress this enough!


To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:

1. They live here. You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. (That's why they call it 'fur'niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: In many ways, dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1.      Eat less

2.     Don't ask for money all the time

3.     Are easier to train

4.     Normally come when called

5.     Never ask to drive the car

6.     Don't hang out with drug-using friends

7.     Don't smoke or drink

8.     Don't have to buy the latest fashions

9.     Don't want to wear your clothes

10.Don't need a 'gazillion' dollars for college.
And finally,

11.   If they get pregnant, you can sell their children

Only problem is she eats and poops like a GREAT Dane.  I had to buy a bigger shovel! :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2:

Doesn't it make you sick to your stomach with these puppy factories...I'd like to lock the SOB's up in one of their own cages for a couple of years.  People who mistreat animals and children shouldn't be on the planet.

So glad to hear of your rescue, Warren, and especially glad to hear the Dane is doing well...they are gentle giants.   :2vrolijk_21:

Yeah, sheds sheds and sheds. they say that they are supposed to "blow" thier coats 2X a year, but I do believe he does it all year round.... Big chunks of hair.

Yeah, my dog was a chow-lab mix and she would shed all the time it seemed like. I could make pillows out of that stuff!

Wow, some great looking additions.  Terry, those little dogs look like they don't know they are small.  Kathy - what are you feeding that little girl. She has tripled in the last couple of weeks.  I love those little fluffy dogs.  Great pics. 

I tell ya, she chows down at chow time. The vet told Brian to be very careful because these dogs put on weight very easily. She's not going to be a true puppy for much longer.

Pretty cat, Kathy.  Jade looks like she is growing by leaps and bounds!!

Yup, Jade is growing like a weed. She's not going to be puppy size for much longer.

Actually it was Marie (daughter #1) who took her from the rescue kennel. The second day she had her they were walking and the Dane decided to make a sudden right turn and pulled Marie to the ground and broke her arm in two places!  Marie weighs 100 lbs soaking wet and the dog weighs 138.  She is a handful to walk....have to use a harness!  :cherry:

Candy...they are sweet dogs to people, but have NO idea about their size.  They will take on any who come if they don't act right...they have no fear, and have the teeth to back it up.  Rider is like a little concrete block when you pick him up...18lbs that feels like 40lbs when they jump on you.  Sweet dogs though, and love their people!  No critter stands a chance...they have already terorized all the chipmunks in the yard...they haven't figured out that the little guys have two holes, so they have escaped thus far.

Hogbreath,

Glad to see you like chickens and dogs as well.   We have 3 dogs in the house, all are of mixed breed.  We had a pure bred cocker spaniel for 14 years and she was not very friendly.  Our current dogs are smart, durable and were free (one was rescued).

In addition to 3 dogs, we also have the following pets/animals.

1 Bird (at house)
2 frogs (at house)
1 Rabbit (in backyard in hutch)
1 Chicken (stays in the backyard in a cool looking pen called an Eglu)
1 Goat (stays at a Vet friends house)
1 Horse (currently out in CA for sale)

My daughter also has about 15 or so chickens she keeps at a friends house in the country.  she goes there every other day to feed, water, and collect eggs she sells in her "Deluxe Clucks" business.  She gets $4.50 a dozen for these fresh eggs which she sells to neighbors and friends.

Can you tell from the above she likes animals :o

Thanks Ken.  She is very enthusiastic when it comes to her special projects.  She is working me for another guiniea pig, as her last one died a year ago on Valentines day.  They are pretty  much useless, as all they do is eat and drop black jelly beans all over the cage.  I'll probably cave and let her get one.

I have no idea where she gets her love of animals and her horse back riding interests. I grew up with only a dog and a strong fear of horses, as they are too big!!  I may need to check on who our mailman was at the time :o  If they guy was a farmer, I'm calling foul...

I have a cousin who's a vet and he along with a friend of mine who was immersed in rottweliers before you could buy them here in the states both believe that the purebreds are weaker although they can't put their finger on why!! I've owned Rotts going on a little over 20yrs. My first dogs were healthy as a horse as they say. the male and female I own now are both sickly although they show few outward signs to the unsuspecting. I might be dogged out at this point!!!!!  :huepfenlol2:     :drink:

Howie...it seems to happen more when a particular breed becomes "popular" with the masses, and dogs are bred for the wrong reasons, tending to pass more of the genetic faults.  As you well know, Rotts are not a breed everyone should own, like so many other breeds of dogs.  The Germans, for some reason, tend to breed strong dogs, particularly the Shepherds and the Rotties...also the Dobies, but a person is going to pay some pretty good money for a German bred dog.

Sorry to hear about that. I remember meeting Gretchen and thinking about Nancy's pup Nick. He's about the same age and like Gretchen had been with her forever. Any thought on another one? Sorry for your and Sue's loss.

On a lighter note, Neal has another dog that eats corncobs. We were having dinner and he threw a corncob off the deck and whoosh, it was gone.

Neal,

Really sorry to hear about your recent loss.  17 years of good times cannot be discounted.  It is also a long time, but I am sure that it passed quickly even so.  Perhaps a new pup is in order.  It sure seems to help and amazingly so.  Sometimes it takes 2 pups to help get over the loss of one pet.  I wonder if that's how we ended up with 4?  Seriously though, our thoughts go out to you and Sue.

Neal, so sorry to hear about your loss.
Take comfort in knowing the love and care you and Sue provided gave her such a long, full life.
My heart is still broken from last year... I search sites like this
http://www.petfinder.com/ (http://www.petfinder.com/)
There are so many dogs that want homes... it is hard to fight the urge to fill the void, I guess that's how special these relationships are.

Sorry to hear about your loss. We have lost 3 pets in the past 3 years and it always leaves a big void in your'e heart.
To lighten the subject, here is a pic of our Ruthie and our new Wags dog trailer for those who did not see my other post. A couple jealous nieghbor dogs looking on. We took her on a 325 mile trip on Sat., drew lots of attention, and she seemed to have a great time.

Not yet, However I did take the little woman in it around the block a few times at high rpm's and she said it wasn't bad at all. Hoist called her my "canary" as she was also testing for exhaust fumes.The trailer seemes to be well insulated

Here's a pet I had for a short while. I named him Fang, he was 1/2 wolf. He was wiened at 2 weeks from his momma. He was never as tame as a dog. I was the only one who could manage to get close to him. He wasn't viscious, he had more of a tendancy to hide out.

I've never seen this thread or never paid any attention to it.  Prior to getting married last year, I had never owned a dog and didn't think of myself as a pet person.  My pet experience was a one-eyed black cat named Patch that was house-trained.  He went to the door and meowed to go out and would sit outside meow to come back in.  If you ever left him locked up too long, he'd go to the walk-in shower and do his business on the drain!  And he learned that all by himself.  He never got on the furniture, the counters or used anything but the rug to sharpen his claws.  So my pet ownership has been highly skewed!

Then Robert fell in love with Annie, Mike's 4-year-old black lab!  She is the smartest and most beautiful dog I've ever seen!   I'll post her pic in a moment.

Then we needed a dog for Grayson because he was jealous.  Grayson wrote a letter to Santa requesting "a white dog named Biscuit."  Big Daddy took him to the post office to mail it.  Santa (our mail carrier) wrote back and told him it was a late request but he'd see what he could do!  Santa delivered the cutest puppy I've ever seen, a very pale yellow English lab to Big Daddy's Firehouse on Thanksgiving because "he was going to be too big for the sleigh by Christmas."  The last six months have been quiet an experience.  He's not a dog!  He's a horse!  They said he'd be around 85 pounds full grown.  He weighed 72 pounds before he was 6 months.  He doesn't know how big he is and is still such a baby.  He pouts, he sulks, and he is soooo spoiled! 

Pics will follow.  I've created his own photo album on my MySpace page just to document his growth because I can't get over how fast he's grown!

Very cool!  You'll have to get Carey to send me a bumper sticker. 

I think Biscuit has finally got it, I hope.  My oldest son gave me all these pointers I've been following so I hope it's working!  My oldest son got a dog last year from the pound and it died 3 days later from Parvo.  He was so upset because he just fell in love with the Jack Russell puppy, named her Rosie, and was so happy.  Three days later, she was gone.  Since then, he volunteers at the Human Society.  He knows he's not ready for the responsibility of a pet full time but wants a dog terribly.  So he goes gets his fix by volunteering.  He gave me lots of tips and helps with Biscuit every time he comes home now.  I think everybody loves the dog about as much as Biscuit (with the exception of his dad).  Everybody wants to take him home!  We are finally breaking him from jumping on the 4-year-old next door.  That poor little boy would drop and roll up in a ball and Biscuit would think he wanted to play and start nudging him around like a basketball!  He loves ball but we've tried every kind and they don't make it a day with the Chew Monster!  He's been through basketballs, soccer balls, softballs, tennis balls, baseballs, footballs, reinforced water hose, limbs from a tree that fell during the storm, every door mat I own, and I'm down to one pair of flip flops!  I buy rawhide rolls by the case and he still needs other things to chew on!  Right now, he's working on a miniature tire.  He's already chewed the seat off of Grayson's bicycle.

Post low on refrigerator door, at nose height:

Dear Dogs and Cats:
The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object.  Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king-sized bed.  I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep.  It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible.  I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is no secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine,   meow, try to turn the knob, or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years--canine or feline attendance is not required.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All  Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets:
1. They live here.  You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture. That's why they call it "fur"niture.
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, they are an animal.  To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:
1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3 Are easier to train
4. Normally come when called
5. Never ask to drive the car
6. Don't hang out with drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't have to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't want to wear your clothes
10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and...
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

One beautiful child and one BIG beautiful furry child!

Wags trailers makes a bigger trailer for larger dogs. We put a cooling pad in ours on warmer days and are getting a kooleraire (a 12v swamp cooler type thing. http://kooleraire.com/ ) for her today. Also putting a remote digital thermomiter in the trailer so I can keep an eye on the temps. while riding. Ruthie's not spoiled though.

Ruthie looks like she loves travelling with you.  We in our home so understand that the dogs are not at all spoiled. I mean, you wouldn't do less for your Mother or your child, would you?

I mean, last holiday we left our Maggie Mae at the West Chester Pet Resort. http://westchesterpetresort.com/
My bill says that her Suite Dreams Vacation Package included a Waterfront Deluxe room with personal concierge service - relaxation, complimentary gourmet treats and snacks, in-suite food and beverage - twice a day, maid service 3 times daily, one-on-one daily activity for 30 minutes, and a Weekend Getaway/Suite Dreams.  I got a camp report and there was a picture of the little slut, kissing one of the assistants.  The report said she was a little shy, that she devoured her meals, she really enjoyed her hammock style bed and loved play time. We don't believe you can really spoil them at all.  When I dropped her off they asked me where she normally slept.  My look said it all - Where ever she wants.

Annie Bea and Springer got to spend the weekend in the Orange Beach Suite at Whitesburg Animal Hospital.  We're picked them up at 4:30pm today.  Annie Bea is going to have a complete spa treatment to include a bath, nail trim, muzzle and ear groom, and a full body massage.  She gets this every time she goes there, and it does wonders for her near 10 year old body.  Springer will get a nail trim, muzzle and ear groom, and a full body massage, but no bath.

Springer is having surgery as I type this note.  2 months ago, we noticed a small growth on his chest.  We had it aspirated, and it was benign.  Our vet wanted to let it go and see what happens.  It got bigger, so we asked to have it removed.  We're also going to have histopath done just to see what the heck it is. 

Prayers for our Springer Boy, PLEASE!  Thanks!

Mickey the wonder dog is fine. Nothing unusual going on, but lately he seems to spend more time closer to me when I'm around the house so I pay more attention to him. He's a boxer/dalmation mix and will be 13 on July 4th. He might have been born on the 3rd or the 5th since the folks we got him from were away over the holiday when he was born. We got him when he was about 6 weeks old. Coolest dog I've ever had. Smartest too. And even now although he's quite old, he still likes to play a bit and gets moody if nobody pays him attention to him I can't imagine a time when he won't be there anymore so each day I spend with him now is precious. We don't own him of course, he owns us and not a day goes by that I am not thankful for being one of his humans. He is wise beyond measure, patient beyond reason, loving beyond comprehension and faithful beyond words. He is my best friend and I am his. He reminds me of the little boy in me and I love him very much.

TREAT ME KINDLY

Treat me kindly, my beloved friend,
For no heart in all the world is more
grateful for kindness than the loving
heart of me.
Do not break my spirit with a stick,
For though I should lick your hand
between blows, your patience and
understanding will more quickly
teach me the things you would
have me learn.

Speak to me often, For your voice is
the world's sweetest music, as you must
know by the fierce wagging of my tail
when your footsteps fall upon my ears.

Please take me inside when it is cold
and wet, For I am a domesticated
animal, no longer accustomed to the
bitter elements. I ask no greater glory
than the privilege of sitting at your
feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with water, for I
cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.
Feed me clean food that I may stay well,
to romp and play and do your bidding,
to walk by your side, and stand ready,
willing and able to protect you with
my life, should your life be in danger.

And, my friend, when I am very old, and
I no longer enjoy good health, hearing
and good sight, do not make heroic
efforts to keep me going.

I am not having fun. Please see that my
trusting life is taken gently. I shall
leave this earth knowing with the last
breath I drew, that my fate was always
safest in your hand.

 :)  It used to be in my signature.   :)  Although I do not lay claim to original thought.  I forgot where I learned of it.  Anyway..............

Springer is home and resting well.  The vet took a huge hunk from his chest skin.  Hopefully we'll have the pathology report by Friday.  Poor guy was pretty loopy when I picked him up from the vet.  That pain injection has him reeling from side to side.  He looked like a drunk when he staggered out back to take a leak earlier this evening.  He gobbled his supper with gusto, so it shant be long until he's back to normal.  He and his sister are happy to be back home and have grounded Renea and me from travel until at least Maggie Valley.  They're homebodies.  It's good to have them home.

The reason a dog has so many friends is because he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

Actually Bull Dogs have a very short energy shot. They are all muscle and want to run and play but there breathing is hampered by the snout and they can't get enough oxygen so they fall to the ground trying to get air.Kinda sad what we do to animals in our attempt to change them. She is a great dog , and a day doesn't go by that she doesn't make me laugh. As for her weight , most people way over feed there Bull Dogs , she Is quite fit and o so sexy. :bananarock:

I love being a Marine - 3rd Gen Naval service, 2nd Gen Marine and I am raising one who will be an amazing Marine, he is totally selfless - something that I think sets leaders apart from the rest.  I have found if you look out for your Marines, always - they will go to extreme lengths to look out for you.

Here's our newest family member. He is a 16 Week old Australian Shepherd/Lab mix. He was found on the side of the road near Knoxville TN when he was about 4/5 weeks old. He came to us via a rescue agent that calls her group, Recycled Friends. He arrived on a transport on Saturday afternoon. Didn't take too long for him to settle in.

He came with the name Donovan, although it wasn't great we figured we'd just shorting it to Donny. So now we have a Donna, her father Donald and his new name sake Donny.

The company that I work for allows me to bring him to work with me. I set up a second crate at the office under my desk and today he spent the day at work. He sleep most of the morning and was pretty quiet until people would came in and got him fired up.

Just came back from a walk in the rain, he was running around like a mad man. He wasn't expecting that he'd need a bath when we got back. That wasn't something he enjoyed but had to be done. ;)

Here's a few pics. I'm a proud father again and this doesn't want to go to college...

Barbie Shoes, Power Ranger Weapons, Transformer Parts - and now Bionicles...that is what we find, the stray hair clip also.  We should have named our numb nuts Hoover.

Labs are the morons of the dog world, black male labs in particular, but I have had 4 to date (2 black males, a brown male and yellow female) and pretty much they are all I ever want to own.

True but they are great dogs, I've had 3 lab mixes over the years. My Lab/German Shepard was the smartest. My sister's 100lb lab is the only one I've seen that needs a life vest to swim though. Big baby! :huepfenlol2: and of course my brother-law-takes a lot of heat for it. ;)

Cause it's smelly and gross! We have Canadian Geese hanging out in the back yard with babies and they are leaving droppings everywhere, Jade eats those things up - GROSS - and then of course she wants to come and lick us. I guess it's better than her eating dead things or chewing up plastic stuff.

We have a huge back yard and a large screened in porch with a ceiling fan.  JestorDecor (Cheri) said our porch looks like a tree house.  When the babies aren't running amuck in the yard, they're lying under the ceiling fan.  The porch is in a shaded area, so they are very comfortable.  At the end of the day it is interesting to see what treasure or critter they have brought to the porch from the yard.

Matrix was dropped off at the Toyota dealership where Terry works.  He knew a dog lover when he saw one and followed Terry around all day.  Terry could tell that the dog had been abused, wore no collar, and was thin.  Matrix is a smart dog ... he charmed Terry, didn't take much.   :)

Matrix showed up at the Toyota dealership where I work last this past Saturday (thus the name).  He was dirty, but did not look sick.  Looked like he might have been in a dog fight.  It was hot as hades on the lot, so I got him some water in a coffee cup.  Later on, he got some chicken from a soft taco.  Stayed around all day long, got wet in a toad strangler of a rain storm, but by the end of the day, if I was outside, he was somewhere near me.  I just couldn't leave him in an empty car lot all night long by himself...guess he knew a sucker when he saw one.  He slept out in the kennel dog house in the backyard that night, then went to the vet to get checked out, bathed, and shots.  Got picked up Monday, and introduced to the other two dogs on my off day, Tuesday.  He's adjusting well, and is a real sweetie...he doesn't quite know what to do with Rider and Tango, as they just want to play with him, but by now, at least he's not scared of them like he was.  He's got a lot of Border Collie in him, though I don't think he's full blooded.  Looks like he's about 3 or 4 years old, judging by his teeth.  Will sit and lay down on command, but doesn't know his house manners yet.

I guess he's got a home now... ::)

Terry and Suzanne,
That's great that you took him in. Borders are a great breed and he's a good looking dog. I had one for my first dog a long time ago. Just have to keep them busy which I'm sure your other two will do once he settles in.

Best of luck with him!
Ed

Terry & Suzanne - Fine looking dog - love those border collie dispositions.  Of course can tell Matrix will not be spoiled  ::) and bet after a few weeks/months he adjusts very well to his new playmates & gets better manners.

Good of you to adopt/save a stray!


Very glad you did not decide to name him Keanu Reeves, but if he does come as he should when called as Matrix, Neo isn't such a bad name.   ;D

A little double entendre never hurts, Mike.  Matrix is doing well...less fearful of the Aussies WFO dispositions (they are only a year old, and still full of themselves), has adopted without a hitch to the crate at night, is eating well.  Neutering will be the next step, but I want to get him back to full strength and disposition before I have that done.  He's marked every vertical object in the back yard thus far, but don't need him doing that in the house.  The neutering will help in that regard, plus a little training.  He's a smart guy, so adapting won't be a problem.  It might be a good thing for the other two heathens to be herded a bit... ;D  He's getting his healthy coat chewables every night, so should be in great shape in a short time.  Got to keep Borders busy, so Rider and Tango should be able to handle that job without an issue.  Rider is only 17lbs, but is like a 17lb concrete block, and tough as a pine knot, so no worries about dominance issues thus far.  I just have to maintain my Alpha status.

Terry,

Your post reminds me of back when I was raising bird dogs & a new one would upset the pack for a time.  From several years time & space, I miss those days.  At the time, it was a handful to keep order & your Alpha comment is the best way to do that.  Usually they could tell by body language who was boss.  You have a great dog there with Matrix - just needs some TLC.

Mike,
Thank you!  We've had her since she was no bigger than a loaf a bread...........7.5 weeks, and have known her since whelp day.  Her Dam, named Missy, passed from cancer three years ago at 9.  I have lost contact with her Sire's parent, Apache, but he would be 13 now, if my math is correct.  We never submitted Annie Bea's registration, since we never planned to show or breed her.  There's enough homeless pupz in the world without us adding to the problem.  She was spayed at 5.5 months.  She has survived cancer three times.  She slipped her lead when she was 1.5, got hit by a truck, and survived that............after I rushed her to the vet and got stopped for doing 105mph enroute.  She is the best Boxer we've had of the four with which we've been Blessed.  She's slowed......................alot..................but she still acts like a puppy.  She attacks the leaf blower, and loves to play and wrestle with Springer.
I know each day with her is a Blessing after all she has survived.  I'm very thankful for that, and each day I thank God for giving Renea and me the honor of caring for one of God's TRUE angels.  She's a big Girl, but she'll always be Mommy's and Daddy's Little Angel.

There is something special about a dog , and she is quite good looking . I have heard it said that there is no place in heaven for animals , I don't believe it to be true and if it is then I'm not going there if invited . I have a number of loved animals I am waiting to see again.   :)

Glad to see that other people really get it.  She sure is a pretty gal and I know that you and Renea enjoy every day that you get to spend with her.  Funny how she migrates to the cool spots.  We have one of our Shelties, actually two of them, that are always laying across the floor registers when the A/C is on and other times just in case it kicks on.  Hats off to you two for being fine parents!

Beautiful dog!

We have a black lab also - freakin moron.  He eats anything and everything he sees - have already informed the spouse that he has a Do Not Resuscitate order on him if he eats something and chokes out. 

He's the 4th lab I have owned, and by far the most knuckle-headed.  Loves the kids tho, so I tolerate his stupidity.  I bet he would fight to the death if someone laid a hand on them or my wife - I respect that.

Skye doesn't eat or chew anything - not bad for a 22 month old Lab. We can leave her in the house for hours on her own and she doesn't touch a thing. I think there is quite a difference between the American strain of labs and the English strain though.

Here's the first picture of her I posted on here 17 months ago.

I've got a lucky to be 15 month old, meat headed, American version of a black lab.  Twice in the last three weeks while mowing the lawn and running over yesterday's dinner a sock has exploded from under the mower.  There was no seeing it before hand.  it was neatly sausaged in the defecation.  I can't believe the colors I find when I'm mowing.  She started last week biting the tops off the red flowers my wife planted two weeks ago.  Thank heaven we have an invisible fence she respects greatly.  She's showing an occasional glimmer of hope of being a future good pet.  One funny thing is that I taught her early on that she can't eat until I say, "OK".  One day she followed me into the bathroom because she didn't hear me.  I said, "OK" and she took off for her food bowl.  By the way, her name is Lucy.

We had a black lab as a kid - he chewed off a muzzle. He ate everything he could get his teeth around until he as about 4.

My brown was English background, smart as hell and total baby.  Couldn't hunt worth a chit.  Was afraid of ducks - tripped over quail and about fell on himself.  My last yellow was gun shy.  This one, I won't even try and train...he's a moron.

I need a pup, but no time soon.

Thanks, Craig...Matrix is doing well.  He's eating like a horse, and putting some needed body weight back on with the flint river food.  He quickly learned the two doggie doors, sleeps all night in his crate, but does not know what to do with his treats yet, unlike the other two!!  He's adjusting well, but still hasn't figured out the two tasmanian devils yet.

Don't know how someone could have abandoned him, but he's got a home now :2vrolijk_21:

Thanks, Craig...Matrix is doing well.  He's eating like a horse, and putting some needed body weight back on with the flint river food.  He quickly learned the two doggie doors, sleeps all night in his crate, but does not know what to do with his treats yet, unlike the other two!!  He's adjusting well, but still hasn't figured out the two tasmanian devils yet.

Don't know how someone could have abandoned him, but he's got a home now :2vrolijk_21:

Always good to hear when man's best friend gets a proper home.

hey yall, hate to break up the party, but thought this important.

if you live in the southeast, beware the eastern diamond back. i am from louisiana and there are timber rattlers that are over 8 ft long, mocassins, copperheads etc: have never lost a dog to snake bite, nor known anyone that has-------the dog just swells and looks goofy for a few days.

until now. my american pit bull terrier, Ellie Mae Clampett, died. vet said no dobt she was bitten by the eastern diamondback. seems this snakes toxins are different. all muscle was a bad thing, he said she had no fat or loose skin so the strike was an imediate full dose.

henry has seen the results of this particular bloodline and would probably guess like i did--that a 30-06 wouldnt bring one down. WRONG!!!!!!!!! these are very dangerous snakes.

anyway, hoping i can save at one dogs life and lots of human tears if anyone in the southeast reads this.

Wow Dennis, sorry to hear that.  Eastern Diamond Backs are not confined to the southeast.  They can be found in he rugged areas as far north as NY.  They are rather common in Pennsylvania.  I guess I have little to worry about my invisible fence.  Or I can fatten the dog up to give it a better chance of survival.

thanks, one time i was not with her. i had perimeter trained her, so she would make rounds on about 20 acres of the 103 we live on. wife let her out for the morning and she wasnt back in 30 minutes, usually took 15 minutes. i searched and yelled------nothing. got on bike and rode all the dirt roads thinking maybe she broke perimiter and chased a deer. well around 3:30 PM, i got on the tractor and made a search grid, found her on the perimeter fence line across the corn field--------only 150 yds from home (sob). the vet comfirmed the rattler bite, i was loading guns, gonna shoot the sumbitch that shot my dog, but i had seen the markings and was just angry.

she was very special, always playing practical jokes on me and would grab her frisbee when ups delivered. ups dude could not leave till he let her catch the frisbee about 20 times.

sorry---- getting off track, i just wanted to prevent another useless death with the warning of this snake.

I'm so sorry about the loss of your beloved Ellie Mae.

                       "Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

                        When an animal dies that has been especially close to
                        someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are
                        meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they
                        can run and play together. There is plenty of food,
                        water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and
                        comfortable.

                        All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to
                        health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made
                        whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our
                        dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy
                        and content, except for one small thing; they each miss
                        someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

                        They all run and play together, but the day comes when
                        one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her
                        bright eyes are intent; Her eager body quivers. Suddenly
                        she begins to run from the group, flying over the green
                        grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster.
                        You have been spotted, and when you and your special
                        friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous
                        reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain
                        upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved
                        head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of
                        your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent
                        from your heart.

                        Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together...."

That's a pretty good poem.  Hopefully it will be true when the time comes.  Sitting here catching up on the thread, listening to the radio.  Pirates of the Mississippi "Feed Jake" just came on.  Kind of tough to type at this point.  Tough to understand why life has to take the critters we care about from us when there's no reason.

It is very hard to understand why life has to take the critters from us, but the good thing is that there are more critters to care for.  Terry and I lost two pups within 3 weeks last November.  In December, two 6 month old babies, Tango and Rider, arrived for us to love.  Two weeks ago Matrix found his way into Terry's heart, and  now we have him to love as well.  Three dogs and one bird reside at the Crain household.  They all provide lots of daily smiles for us.   :)

Akita's are a Japanese breed.  They are incredibly strong.  We have had three GS's and three Akita's over the years.  The Akita's rule the dog world at our house.  The Shepherds are smart enough to know when to stop.  They are very gentle with kids, very protective of their home and very smart.  For as large as they are, they are quick.  No chipmunks or squirrels in our yard.  The males averate 130lbs., the females 110lbs.  They are a confident breed, but obedient.  Great dogs...

My very first dog that I could call my own was a short hair, Got her for free as she had a lot of black in her coat. With the white mixed in she almost looked blue.

She had a white spot on her head that was a perfect diamond shape, so she was aptly named "Diamond"

Actually GSP (German Shorthair Pointers)   great dogs.....lots of energy

I had another set Kellie and Kody over 16 years ago and I lost one to ethyl Glycol poisoning (Anti freeze)

What a Tragedy.........had a basketball hoop/net and filled with water to anchor it.
put anti freeze in the closed tub to keep from freezing...........

apparently sometime over the winter the top split and Kellie was able to consume enough to kill her.

needless to say that was disposed of and a $1000,00 vet bill and a dead dog.

Really a bad time for the whole family........

took many years before we could get another dog

You have to love those deep chested skinny dogs

they are graceful and have tons of energy

their endurance is endless......talk about a  true Marine.....those dogs are incredible

I had a very large aggressive lab attack my dogs (mine were under my control) I released them so they would have a chance to get away and after

about a half hour of him chasing them, he fell over exhausted

my dogs thought he was just playing............he would have torn them apart if he could had caught them......

I am not so sure about the "not as Regal" part

Greyhounds were dogs of the Pharaohs   not many as Regal as those

My dogs were just Germans Being Germans wanting an versatile gun /bird dog that would retrieve and would hunt all day long and none of that long hair

mess to clean up........they were strictly function......form was a bonus

Don...that position is a Greyhound thing, regardless of size.  Shug used to lay exactly like that.  They don't like their boney legs touching the surface of much of anything, so they try to lay on their backs, but can't because they aren't wide enough...so the head and neck has to prop the rest of 'em up.  No sweeter animal in this world, and not a day goes by I don't miss my Shug.

Matrix is doing great though, despite being harassed by the two Terriers.  Somebody got a rat today and brought it up on the porch, so the two tasmanian devils are doing what they were born to do, despite living in the lap of luxury.

Give Diz a hug from all of us...

I just chuckle whenever she does it too.  The two IG's I've had all did it just as you describe.  Mom's do too.  For the life of me I can never decide if they look so comfortable they just can't move anymore or look they can't find a spot.  But when they get it right they're dead to the world.  World's fastest couch potatos need their beauty sleep :drink: .

Red, my friend, Suzanne missed a perfectly good photo op with the dead rat on the porch...she was so grossed out, she scooped the thing up in a dust pan and threw him over the fence.  Rider (the male Aussie Terrier) wanted to keep playing with it.  They are born and bred ratters, and will also go after a snake, even if it means their own demise.  Your baby probably was doing the same thing...protecting you.  Hopefully she got the best of the rattler before it got the best of her.  I've read a few stories about the Austrailian Terriers doing the same thing with the snakes in their home country.  Fearless are the Terriers, yet sweethearts at the same time, if they are raised right.

The rat was laying on it's back with it's mouth open...my babies thought it was a stuffed toy, so were tossing it about.  So far...rats 0, chipmunks 0...Rider and Tango 2   :2vrolijk_21:

He's so busy gobbling down his food that he doesn't think about the little guys and they're busy eating their food.  The first night and next day that he was here he wouldn't eat dog food.  We think he may have been accustomed to eating scraps.  Once he got used to eating the Flint River Ranch dog food, he loves it!  He eats 2 cups a day.  The little guys can stand on their tippy toes and drink from Matrix water bowl but can't reach into his food bowl.

Or makes it so they disperse their droppings in a wider area of impact...  My lab can drink a few laps, and leave a puddle twice the size of the bowl, I think it's a mathematical equation...  Height or size of the bowl x size of the dog = area to step in with socks on squared.

Terry was at work but I was on the phone with my daughter and I kept hearing the constant squeak.  I looked at Rider, and the squeaker was barely inside his mouth (you had to be there).  He would bite down on it and it would squeak.  I immediately told my daughter that I had to attend to Rider and laid the phone on the couch.  She could hear me as I crawled on the floor and was repeatedly saying, "Rider, give the squeaker to Mama".  I could hear her laughing hysterically on the phone.  Rider played that little game with me and I finally got it out of his mouth.  You are right ... it would have made a great video!   :D

My daughter totally understood as my granddogs immediately kill the stuffed animals when they get new ones.  Speaking of my granddogs and my daughter, pix are to follow.

They were at one time, Morty and Steve have passed on, Ella got sold and something else ate the scorpion, I think.  They were the kids pets a few years ago.
 
When my daughter was a small girl, she made the Steve Irwin guy look silly. It was "lookie" what I trapped, caught, chased down or whatnot, a complusion to hold animals... There are all sorts of critters down here...

Many exotic critters have passed through the house, some still live in the neighboorhood.

We still have "Sticky" some kind of airbreathing fish and Gaks the Geko, 4 dogs, 8 cats 2 rabbits and some lucky rats that never got fed to the snakes...  :-X

Cool looking Gecko...

Just three dogs and a Blue Crowned Conure (bird) in my home right now, though if I could afford it, I'd have this young Sun Conure they have at a local pet supply store right now.  Used to have cats, but the last one passed about 4 years ago, and don't want any more 'cause they kill the birds in the back yard.  The Terriers would too if they could climb trees...anything on the ground stands no chance, so all the squirells stay up in the canopy and jump from limb to limb, with the Terriers keeping them all "treed".

Never had a desire for a snake...they get too big.  Some of the lizards are cool though,but with the dogs, they'd never stand a chance.

That big a$$ed spider can stay away though...spiders give me the heebiejeebies.

Had fish too, well, we are down to one live coral reef tank...Steve the spider would have taken quite a smack to spatter at 8 inches long, he was a biggin!  An if he had bitten it would have hurt as his fangs were almost 1/2 inch long but he was very docile as most big spiders are.

Little wolfs spiders are fast and mean, the bite is very painfull, the black widows too, which we have outdoors down here.
The pygmy rattlers and deadly coral snake are all wild here.

Last evening was a sad night around here. When we all got home from the aquarium, our eldest cat, Cindy, who's 19 years old was really having a hard time. Her kidneys started giving her problems quite some time ago and things weren't getting any better for her.

We took her over to the emergency vets for some fluids to help out with her dehydration and it just wasn't going to work. We knew it was the right decision to make, so we decided to have her put down last night.

She was a great girl and I've had her since she was a kitten. She outlasted her brother by almost 8 years. Here are a few pictures of her posted earlier.

We love you Cindy, RIP. (July 1989 - August 17, 2008)

                        Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow
                        Bridge.
                       
                        When an animal dies that has been especially close to
                        someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are
                        meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they
                        can run and play together. There is plenty of food,
                        water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and
                        comfortable.
                       
                        All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to
                        health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made
                        whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our
                        dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy
                        and content, except for one small thing; they each miss
                        someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
                        They all run and play together, but the day comes when
                        one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her
                        bright eyes are intent; Her eager body quivers. Suddenly
                        she begins to run from the group, flying over the green
                        grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster.
                        You have been spotted, and when you and your special
                        friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous
                        reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain
                        upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved
                        head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of
                        your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent
                        from your heart.
                       
                        Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
                                               
                        Chuck and Pinkie, I'm So Sorry About the Loss of Your Beloved Cindy.

You can protect the United States of America from all enemies foreign and domestic and can't take off a few days in September to meet a group of people that would enjoy the honor and privilege to meet a member of this site that is also a United States Marine.
