RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Oh, way cute! Does he have any lineage in common with Jimmy? Did you say it was the same breeder? Did Jimmy grow much after the first year? I would never have thought of that combo but it makes a beautiful and no doubt very smart, compact sized dog. :B

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

He's now at peace and so is your household. All is good. You're right - and Ben and Jimmy are none the worse for the abuse, other than Ben is rather cautious when approaching other dogs. At a whopping 15 lbs - that's probably a very good thing :-) BTW, I'm thinking we need a photo of Ben and Jimmy. Haven't seen that baby dog for a long time. :W

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

It's seldom an easy call, is it? I often wonder how it is for vets, since they must worry about emotional consequences if they tell a pet owner there really is no hope. Our old country vet (who died on the job a couple of years ago) made the call for us several times. I've heard that some of his clients did not appreciate that, but we always respected his opinion. With Poquita and the new vet, who we like very much, we felt that we were given false hope and only ended up prolonging her misery. Hindsight is truly 20-20 and each case is different. Luckily, that darned second guessing doesn't last too long.

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

The deed is done. Jack went peacefully - my last (yes, tearful) command to him was to "go find Ike". He'll be with us forever, because that's how long it will take to get rid of all the Jack-fur....LOL! I brought his collar home to show Jimmy and Ben - they seem fine. Thanks again for all the kind words - we all know this is the price we pay for the love of a pet. I'm glad it was easy for him, never easy for us. Somebody, (was it you, Deb?) said they came home and told the other dogs "Rover is ALL GONE", holding palms out in the classic "no more treats signal." I did that to Rosie when we came home without Poquita and she totally seemed to get it. Maybe they are also relieved that the one who was obviously in distress is no longer there? Thanks for sharing all your experiences. RIP Jack.

RE: There are x's it's unfortunate I can't bring a sis 4 Calvin

She is cute! Takes up NO space. When she whines it sounds like a creaky door. Looks like an itty bitty GSD. Eats anything! Oh, dang! Is she a chi/pom? That was also Poquita's AKA: toy GSD. If we were younger, I would want that one.

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Absolutely LOVE the photo Deb! I took a few photos of Harlee when we knew that at anytime she'd be leaving us. Pops We did that, too, a short time before we had to let Poquita go. When I looked at those photos later, I was horrified at how bad she was and so sorry we had let it go that far. Funny how in "real life" we look at them through loving eyes and do not see the sad facts.

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

What intelligent eyes, Jimmy has. You've definitely got another communicator there. I'll bet Jack has been important in his life, even if only to give Jim the job of monitoring him. Jack seems arthritic and "checked out." Still hard...

RE: It's Official!

Are you lucky with Sunny and he has the kind of white poodle coat that doesn't mat? I used to help a friend groom poodles and the ones with the cottony white coat needed to be dusted with baby powder before brushing out. Otherwise, there was some serious fur tangling. I like their feet done, too. like to see the delicate little toes. Otherwise, they look Bichon to me. Memories...

RE: Sometimes, a dog is just a dog?

Agree completely, some dogs are dogs and some are people. Just like some people in your life are precious to you and some are background noise. Good for you being able to make that appointment. It's so much better than waiting until there is no choice.. All best wishes for Jack, the good dog, may he soon be romping with his pal Ike again.

RE: It's Official!

Does he scream like you're killing him for his front feet? Our dogs have all done that for even a nail trim and they're shorthairs. Somehow they're good as gold for the groomer, though, so I don't think it really hurts. This morning we got them dremeled! There is no possible way they would've let us do that. :R

RE: It's Official!

Now, who would have ever seen that coming?:W Seriously, I have always wondered how I could take on one of these tough rescue/rehab cases and then, when the dog is greatly improved, let him go? And would that have an impact on the dog's retraining and trust issues? I know people do it, and bless them for it, but I don't think I could.

RE: May have poisoned my dog

Thank you for your post, that is a very good reminder to all of us to be cautious. I hope you pup is ok.. I agree, thanks for the reminder to be cautious of giving dogs water they're not used to. Here in the (desert region) suburbs of L.A. we're suspicious of water that doesn't taste and smell of chlorine. :B There are times when the water plant over treats it a little and I guess they have their reasons, but it's never done any harm that we could detect. The bit I researched sounds like your dog would be showing symptoms pretty quickly if that chemical was too much for him. I sure hope he's fine.

RE: Happy Birthday puppies

Great news on Gyp, whew!

RE: Happy Birthday puppies

Gyp is close to 100% better. Graham stopped feeding on BJ, he wasn't getting enough milk from her due to poor timing on our part as when to feed him relative to when she was feeding the 4 other pups. He took the bottle for a while and then stopped taking the bottle. He started regurgitating the milk replacer from the bottle and feeding tube; it looked to me as if he was not tolerating the milk replacer (tummy upset). Last night was a sleepless night trying to feed and have him keep it down; then we were off to the vet. This morning we were again discussing with a vet if it was time to let him go. We asked the vet to tube feed so she could see what he was doing. Apparently he is doing better and keeping the food down (different milk replacer). My wife was going to pick him up along with milk replacer from the vet and antibiotics. We are emotional wrecks living on very little sleep. Oh, my gosh, I know you are! I wish some of us were close enough to help. Bless your hearts for trying to save him.

RE: Dry Eye

Yes, Genteal liquid gel for moderate dry eyes (orange stripe on box), NOT the Genteal gel in tube (red stripe on box) , is very helpful for dry eye, in dogs or humans. I've tried less costly brands but they seem just like water and are not nearly as comforting. Is there a reason that you don't use the gel in the tube? I used the gel for years for dry eye in cockers. The gel stays with the eye longer, which is helpful for someone who works all day and isn't home to drop the eyes every couple of hours. Just wondering..... Thanks, Good point! I do use it myself at bedtime sometimes, which is when Dr recommends it. The problem for humans is that it causes blurry vision. That's a pain when trying to read the paper or computer screen, anything that requires clear vision. Not a problem for doggies! :W The tube type is basically vaseline+water and I sure wish I was the one who thought of marketing it! Wow, is it expensive! :E

RE: Hello all

Wow, everything is coming along and Izzy has her pacemaker so she's good to go. :B Now, if you can only keep those girls in the style to which they've become accustomed! They'll have to trade their snow gear for bikinis.:E And you'll have to find an internet cafe so you can update us once in awhile. :W Congrats and best wishes!

RE: re: Pet treats

I tossed them out. They wouldn't touch them, didn't like the smell, and I thought Darcy would eat anything.:(

RE: I'm A Nutcase, I Swear!

Oh, yes, he looks much more like a "Sunny" and he seems to have a new, more confident attitude! New duds, too! I'll bet the rescue he came from is thrilled. :B

RE: re: Pet treats

I picked up a couple of "sweet potatoes" so marked in the produce section but the checker rang them up as red yams. Does it make a difference? So I have one of them sliced up and in the oven for two hours @ 200 degrees. They are at this point, still rubbery. I am hoping to get them at the magic window before they turn rock hard. Do yams cook differently? I wish we had a dehydrator, but it looks like they take up a good bit of room and our kitchen is small.
