Look at that lovely mushy kissable face. I am so happy to hear that regardless of what happened to him, he pulled through. What a trooper.

I'm so, so glad Bullseye is doing so well. <3
I'm sure he's in a spectacular home that's better than I can do right now, but part of me wishes I could have taken him. Not the right time with my 8 month old wild child, not responsible, but he really struck a chord with me. I was looking at the website's "Adopted/Placed" page and I was instantly drawn to him more than any of the others even before I realized which pup he was.

I'm loving looking at the sighthound pics. Much of my dogs' lives is off leash on acreage, so sighthounds aren't really for me, but I can't stop admiring them.

Oh...thank you Cat, so very much for the report. He looks gorgeous. And I'm so happy to know he's well emotionally. He sure looks it by the way he's holding himself and in his face. It goes to show that he must have a good, solid, correct temperament to have been so resilient. The love and care he's getting from his new owners, it would appear, has enhanced his inborn wonderfulness. I bet they're thrilled and in love.

Thanks so much for sharing that. Things like this...his early days have a way of eating at me unrelentingly and I'm sure, most everyone.

I was just reading something and this struck me:

"You captivate him. He thinks you are fantastic, you are his, and so, no one is allowed to disturb you. His adoration will grow for you as this friendship deepens. He will only be happy when he is near you, and he will only ask to be able to lie by your feet."

It's too bad Teal didn't do her research. If this is not what she wanted, (a puppy that follows her every step practically) what on earth did she get a protection dog for? Protection dogs are like this. They adore you, almost worship you, follow you around, they stick like glue. How else would they be able to do their job if they couldn't keep a close watch on you and didn't have this fiercely strong bond? My Doberman and GSDs were like this...more so, my Dobe and especially as a puppy. He got a little more "chill" when he got mature, but still...he stuck pretty darn close. If he wasn't close, he'd check back in momentarily. lol. It's just too bad. But I'm very happy that this fella had a happy outcome. His new, good owner wouldn't have gotten him, if that awful beginning hadn't happened.

So glad that Fila puppy is in good hands right now. Looks SO much better!!!!!

Now... on the topic of sighthounds... omggggg aside from being in love with Ibizans.... I soooooo want a Saluki one day (and a rescue grey). I would LOVE to own a Zoi too, but wonder if they aren't "Up and go go" enough for me. They are sooooo beautiful though.

My beezer boy was too thin when I first picked him up. Now he's at the point where you can see his ribs still though hardly and you have to be right up close to really see them, but only a little bit when he standing stacked and there isn't really much of a dip inbetween each rib at all. Now if he turns his body you can see a little more rib. He eats roughly 2 cups of Blue Buffalo every day plus a little plain yogurt and some canned pumpkin and a few treats here and there. I do want him to have a little more muscle definition though so that's a work in progress.

This was Joey when I first got him


and now a couple months later

"No No I gots it... see? I gots it!"








Saluki puppy anyone?

This is one of the many reasons I nearly had a heart attack when she said she wanted a Malinois.

OMG, Amber. I was on a hiatus, I guess, from Chaz, and only saw lovely Joey on FB. I had no idea how horrible his condition was when you first got him. He's a lucky boy to have you. <3

I'm still working with Fable. She was emaciated like Joey when when she was sick, and it tore my heart apart that she was like that in my care. I was stuffing her full of food and checking in with the vet both with visits and on the phone, but it still killed me.
As of now she's very skinny still (she has a helluva lot more fat than she did, but you can see the tops of her hip bones and feel every rib with no pressure), and even though she's not sick anymore she's a very hard keeper and maintaining her weight without things like satin balls is impossible. Fortunately, even though it's been tough figuring out just what she needs and how much, she is gaining weight slowly but surely, and I can breathe again.
Honestly I haven't posted any pics because of that. I know (or rather hope) that you guys know me well enough that I would not let my dog get so skinny without taking her to the vet to make sure nothing's wrong, without extreme effort to add on weight, etc., but I'm really sensitive over malicious comments I got during her illness from people who should have known me better.

And I got derailed there. Sorry.
