RE: My Boy's Sick ...

Oh, my gosh, I missed this thread, too! Even living where I do, I have never known anybody whose dog got Valley Fever. The Northridge earthquake stirred up those spores and we did hear a lot about the disease after that. My friend's son had it but is fine today. Pops, I've taken Tramadol for years and it has a mood elevating effect in addition to the pain relief. That's a good thing and I hope Calvin shows signs of feeling better. You know you've got all the good vibes I can possibly send out to the Universe for Calvin. Be strong.

RE: Questionable Breeding

But all you have to do is take your new pup to a park with a lot of dog walkers and you will find dozens of "experts" define her genealogy for you, at no charge! :W As a side note, a lot of people move to Calif and then find their lifestyle cramped by the dog they brought with them. Sooo, I've noticed a fair number of people who got a beautiful example of some rare breed at the animal shelter. Usually, the staff there had told them it was a mutt but research (and tips from other dog walkers) revealed the truth. :B

RE: Starbucks intimidates me

I have never and never will buy overpriced "coffee" from Sterbucks......... Me, either, but I have lusted after one of those caramel iced whatchacallits when I saw someone else having one. Then I looked up the calorie count and forget it! Inflated prices + inflated calories? What a business model.

RE: Questionable Breeding

:@She's a sweetheart and weren't you lucky with her disposition! I guess if I was working at the rescue and had to put some breed on her card, I'd put beagle/Aussie mix. The question mark is very clever. :@

RE: Starbucks intimidates me

Bud rolled into LAX one night, after a long flight and caffeine deprived. He asked Starbucks for a plain black coffee and then ran to spit it out in a trash container. People all around him were laughing. It's just not our planet anymore. :E

RE: Baby and Dog - SOOOO funny!

The way the dog plays off the baby's reactions is just beautiful to watch. What a perfect pair!

RE: Jake Update-Good News!

Great news! Thanks for the heads up so we all pay attention if our pooches develop a similar problem. What was his first symptom, coughing?

RE: Dreaming Dog

Some times when the collies dream their feet are moving, unless they are laying on them. Some times you here a muted soft bark from them as well. It was the same with Rosie. Heck, she dreamed whole movies with full sound effects, leg and feet action, the full scenario. We used to laugh and try to figure out what life experience she might be reliving. I don't think that was it because we got her at 9 weeks old and never remember any close encounters. There was her knee surgery. Maybe that was it. She was a big "chihuahua" but had the nervous system of an inbred tiny chi. She would jump sideways if a leaf waved at her. She was such a funny little girl. We miss her so much.

RE: Prayers for Jake, please

Oh, my gosh, I've never heard of anything like that! It must have been very distressing to him as well as you. It seems like a positive sign that the steroids help. You've got my very best wishes!

RE: Dog food-are these ingredients necessary?

We had recently bought a bag of Blue Buffalo Salmon potato, which we had used for our dogs for years, so I checked. Yep, very few little "bits" but I always thought that was a gimmick, anyway. Kind of like giving the kids Flintstone vitamins vs generic. We only have Darcy now but she loves the stinky salmon. She also gets Blue FREEDOM and bits of meat from whatever we're having. So far, so good.

RE: Admit something silly or embarrassing you've done

I remember when I picked up my new glasses and then remembered to bring my old glasses back to the optometrist for recycling. The Dr's office was closed when I returned, so I stuck the bag full of frames and lenses through his mail slot. You guessed it. I had included my brand new glasses and had to go all weekend without them. :E Luckily, I got them back Monday morning.

RE: Cross your fingers for a nice dog....

Yep, that's what I suspect, Ike had a paw in it. That or maybe it's the flashing neon *SUCKER* sign that some of us have in our immediate proximity.:B Either way, job well done and I hope you get to hear that Ninja made it home again. Maybe the intake clerk at the shelter will have to rethink her assumptions.

RE: Cross your fingers for a nice dog....

We live out in the boonies Totally forgot that and forgot the shelter might have a chip reader. A $25 surrender fee? That's insane. Guess they have to cover their costs somehow. That's because "back in the day" the shelters charged a fee if owners surrendered their own pet, but not if it was a stray they brought in. So naturally, everybody "just found" the dog or cat they were dropping off, even if they'd had him for ten years. Sad, really, and unfair, but the shelters had to do something to cover expenses.

RE: Cross your fingers for a nice dog....

Ninja was so smart, choosing exactly the right location to seek help. You "done good" and it would be nice if they repaid you the $25, but if not, just think of it off as a donation to the shelter. I sure hope the owners get him tags. Good job=good karma. Nice that your boys accepted him so well, too. :B

RE: From the Land of the Misfit Dogs...

So which group did Jackson fit best with, or was he the same with all of them? He sure sounds like a sweetheart. Makes me miss my Rosie, who was the easiest, most eager to please dog we ever had. She was also the only one of ours who ever went to training as a pup. I don't know if that made the difference.

RE: Beware of cats & string.

Our vet stressed all those kinds of dangers when Edna was a kitten. He said he did surgery all the time on cats that liked the "eating spaghetti effect." Even our vet tech had his own cat swallow a shoestring and then bite it off at the shoe. He didn't even know it had happened until the cat became ill with the impaction. Who doesn't go out and get one of those cat dancer things (feathers and bell attached to a string and stick) when they have a new kitten? That should be played with only when supervised and then put away when you're throughIt was good advice and Edna is now 18 years old.

RE: From the Land of the Misfit Dogs...

Jackson seems to have a nice coat, more evidence that he had been taken care of before he fell on hard times. There is the chance that something happened to his original family and you know how that "free to good home" scenario goes. He might have ruined his teeth trying to get out of some kind of enclosure. If he's missing a canine tooth, AZpops can tell you all about doggie implants. :B It's so fun seeing Jackson enjoying his new digs.

RE: A happy puppy story!

Bud's family is in the deep South and over the years, I have noticed the local attitudes toward dogs and cats are changing. For the longest time, people seemed to not believe in spending any money on vet care of any kind. Ironic, because I noticed they didn't mind spending it for other things. A sick or injured animal got the old sunshine treatment, ie: Let nature take its course. The last time I was there, I was happy when my BIL rounded up a batch of stray cats and kittens and took them to the SPCA. In the "old days" those cats would've met a much different fate.

RE: From the Land of the Misfit Dogs...

Aww, he is so happy to be out of jail! What was his story, do you know? It sounds like he had been taken care of but lost his home through no fault of his own. He may just surprise you and last quite a few years longer.
