    Goodbye Hutch

    We had to let him go. There, I said it. On Tuesday afternoon we had to rush Hutch to the vet and say our final goodbye. It was the day after his 8th birthday. Hutch came to us when he was 10 months old. Severely malnurished, abused, and a physically a mess. Emotionally he was unscathed. The...

    A few of my crew!

    Here they are! I am far from a photographer like some of you on here are, but wanted to show off my pups. Hutch is now 6 and a half and still going strong. A little slower than he used to be and with the facial nerve paralysis he is far from a pretty boy- but he's my boy! Abbey is 7 and still...

    Facial nerve paralysis- Has anyone experienced this?

    Poor Hutch, our Saint, has facial nerve paralysis. He has lost muscle coordination on the left side of his face. I immediately thought that he had suffered from a stroke, but usually this is not the case. Most cases of this are idiopathic, but we do have to rule out the other causes. We will...

    Seagle pulled out his stitches!

    Well yesterday morning Seagle had the big snip. Everything went wonderfully, he came home at dinner time last night and seemed a little tired, but otherwise his normal same old self. He wasn't at all interested in his stitches in the evening, didn't lick once. We asked at the vet if we should...

    Any Chazzers feel the effects of Noel?

    Well, I woke up at 4 am this morning to some of my 6 foot fencing being torn down by the strong winds (120kms/h or 75miles). My husband and I went out to investigate and save as much as we could. Luckily we only lost 3 8 foot pannels. We lost several shingles on our roof, and our outdoor light...

    Two dogs plus foster = three!

    On Saturday we will be bringing home a foster girl. She is an 8 month old husky/shep cross who was days away from being euthanized because she was an untrained puppy. The owners decided that she was too much work and they didn't have time for her. Instead of wanting to rehome her they wanted to...

    Elbow Dysplasia- Please Help!

    Well, I have just spent a very long and sad afternoon at the vets. We rescued my St. Bernard when he was 10 months old (10 months ago). A few times he has shown some signs of lamness in his front left leg, but it has always disappeared after a couple of hours. Last night he started limping again...
