Meet Dexter

After losing Pippin last fall, we have added a new boy to our pack. He's actually been with us since April, just getting around to posting about it. Anyways, this is Dexter. He is very people-oriented - really loves a good cuddle. He is also an active puppy, taking puppy foundation agility classes, learning manners and foundation skills for obedience work, and going to handling classes. When he is a little older he will start with his sheepies...many of his relatives are successful not only as trial competition dogs, but also as working cattle ranch dogs. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v344/samamph/IMG_2298_zpsz49oa0cb.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v344/samamph/IMG_4577_zpsl8jhi1zl.jpg

RE: Flock benifits of training our sheepdogs

With so much negativity in the world right now, it's nice to see a story where things get better. One of the wildfires burning in CA at the moment forced the evacuation of our herding trainer's ranch. The flock (70 head) was quickly loaded and trailered the BC brought them in from the field, but the GSD and Terv took care of loading the smoke-panicked sheep. They got down off of the mountain, one load at a time. They were moved from the general large animal evacuation to a friend's property the next day, and will be staying there till the all clear.

RE: Dogs in 5th wheel towing

I would only add one question. When the generator is running in the truck bed, have you made sure that that exhaust isn't coming up into the 5er? I know of one of those "mobile grooming" outfits that didn't make that provision with very sad consequences. Once you've addressed that, so long as you have adequate temperature control and a reasonably smooth ride, I think you've got all of your bases covered.

RE: pet carrier

I'm all about the safety of a hard-sided crate for use in a vehicle. But, for an evacuation situation for a couple of little guys like your Chis, I would buy a couple of the soft-sided carriers used as airline carryon pet carriers. The Sherpa or Sturdibag brands are the best made, but you can also get knock-offs at Walmart. They are small, have a shoulder strap for quick getaway, and also have a zippered pouch where you can store an emergency food ration, any meds, some pickup bags, etc. Do teach your dogs how to go into them without putting up a fight. Once you hear the tornado siren you don't have time to negotiate! Feeding them their meals in there with the door unzipped is a great way to make them like the bag.

Buddy found Santa

A little late posting here, but this was our Christmas Eve greeting to friends. In his senior years, Buddy has taken up tracking as a sort of retirement gig. This video is not actual tracking, as he could see the lost "article" the whole time :) Who needs NORAD when you have Buddy?

RE: New approach to High Volume Breeders (puppy mills)

It's a good idea. Now if we can do something about for-profit "rescues"......

RE: Cartoon for Doc

Ha ha! I really expected the last panel to have a neutering joke, but microchips work too!

RE: Spaying pets

I don't spay or neuter until the dog's growth plates are closed. In our breed, that is generally between 12-15 months of age. With our young girl (well, she's almost 7 now) her 15-month X-rays showed that she wasn't quite there, so we waited until 19 months of age for her.

Another great one gone

Tuesday night I fed the pack their dinner and everything was normal. Pippin was prancing about, ate his dinner with great enthusiasm, and was acting perfectly normal. When I called him in at bedtime, he didn't come. Finally we found him, standing still, clearly in agonizing pain. We sat with him through the night, ready to take him to E-vet if it looked like he was bloating. Yesterday morning DH took him to our regular vet, and the news wasn't good. Imaging revealed a mass easily 5 inches in diameter, wrapped around his spleen, constricting his intestines, and pushing on his heart. So sudden and out of nowhere. The first words out of my mouth, in the darkened X-ray room, as the reality of the situation hit me, were "you're supposed to get more than 10 years." We said our goodbyes and Pippin's last moments were in the arms of the people who loved him. Hold your pups a little tighter...you never know if you will get another chance.

RE: Jill's final trip

Sorry for your loss. It was a rough day for a lot of us.

RE: Slipping feet

I've not used the toe grips, but have heard of others using them with success. One thing to remember is that with or without the toe grips, you still have to keep the nails trimmed, the shorter the better. Many breeds, mine included, grow quite a bit of hair between the pads of their feet. Keeping it trimmed flush with the footpads will also help with slipping on tile and vinyl. An overweight dog is going to have more problems as it ages with staying on its feet. Finally, the slipping in a senior dog may be a symptom of IVDD, DM, or a variety of other unpleasant realities of aging pets. Been there, it's horrible.
