    I've met some neat people here, but some of you have really confirmed my distrust of forums - I appreciated your support when our dog was ill but I don't need to answer to a bunch of strangers about how we run our rescue. If that makes me rude/arrogant, whatever. But to hear people say our...

    Dew Claws??

    So we have a purebred Dobie pup at our rescue, she's not quite 6mos. of age. She has front dew claws but not rear ones. And we've chosen an adopter - I think - they emailed today asking if we could have her dew claws removed! I told her no, absolutely not! For gosh sake, it's an amputation...

    Since I never post pics...

    Here's a few I took today - first one of Conan in his pen, looking a little rough. His eyes are still bright, but he's tired. These are a few of our foster dogs, first is Venus, a purebred Dobie who is 5mos. of age. I really love her deep rich coloration. I had to buy her from this idiot...

    Pebbles emergency this evening

    Earlier this evening, Pebbles threw up, and then threw up again. It was 5 and we were getting ready to leave so had started dinnertime earlier than usual (usual is 6:30pm). This has happened before around dinner time occasionally with one or another of our dogs so I thought nothing of it. They...

    Special Needs Dachshund foster

    We got in this pup last week and I thought I'd share her here...maybe get some thoughts on her situation. First off she's drop dead beautiful. But she's a bucket of problems! Layla was being dumped on Craigslist. I saw an ad for "albino Dachshund" and my heart went out to this poor...

    My son (now 18, has LD) wants an MP3 player for Christmas. Just about anything slightly nicer than an Ipod Shuffle will do. But I want to get him something nicer (not necessarily an Ipod) yet sturdy and that won't break within a week. Please recommend one for me! I was looking at this...

    Funny story about my phone

    So I got a Samsung Meserize, a touch screen phone. It's all such new technology and I'm learning as I go of course. It has voice-to-text typing, so you speak into the phone and it's amazingly accurate. We have been bottle-feeding this litter of two puppies and this morning I was telling...

    Sarcoptic mange?

    We got a puppy foster in two weeks ago, with Sarcoptic mange (very bad case). I treated him with .05 Ivermectin two days in a row then waited until yesterday and did a dose again yesterday and one today. I bathed him with Ectosoothe just in case that might help too. Oh and two weeks ago, upon...

    Woke up to Pebbles coughing

    Our youngest, Pebbles, is coughing, I woke up to the sound of it. It's so strange, it sounds like a human cough as opposed to the dry hacking typical of KC. Not only that, we haven't had KC for weeks and no dogs have come in from shelters to carry it in. She has also vomited up phlegm a...

    Doberman Puppy parvo surrender

    We got a call this afternoon about a Dobie puppy at the clinic, his owner couldn't afford the parvo treatment. But - the backstory is, the owner had a female puppy who actually did survive parvo but apparently infected the ground all over, over there, so our vet told him not to breed her, he...
