    Baby Boy is All Grown Up (And Officially Measured)

    Little Lodin is nearing 18 months and hasn't grown in over half a year. Hard to believe my little puppy is all grown up already. He weighed in on the vet scale at 34lbs, and was officially measured for his temp height card last week at 19-3/4" Now...time to go do things :)

    In Case Of Emergency Pet Window Alerts

    I recently saw window stickers to put on your house in case of fire/emergency intended to alert the first responders to the presence of pets in the home. Usually some form of emergency insignia followed by text reading "___ dogs inside." Does anyone use these? More importantly, does anyone...

    Young Dogs & Exercise

    So Chaz has had a lot of excellent discussion lately and I have a question for you all...applies whether your dogs are pets, working, sporting, or some combination of the above! For purposes of the discussion I am defining young dog as any time pre-adulthood. If you're a breeder that could in...

    Of Blood and Tugs

    So the Crazy Monkeybean known as Lodin nearly gave me a heart attack today as blood went flying everywhere... Which I discovered after this picture was taken, when I outed him (yes I know blood is visible in the photo but believe me when I say it was not so easy to spot in live action)...

    Welcome to the World, Mirapuppy

    Mira's first litter was born today via caesarean section. While I prefer a natural whelping (and natural breeding) whenever possible especially with a first-timer, we decided to do the c-section when we saw this: So around noon today we welcomed Mira's 21-ounce singleton boy puppy into...

    ShaiCrew Dynamics & A Little Jaunt

    Webby continues to dream of a quiet, peaceful, sun-kissed land wherein he is the only dog. Mira is the most tolerant and forgiving puppy-raiser ever. Kim demonstrates a proper roll. Lodin is puzzled, then decides that this strange game is weird and tries to start better game :P...

    Tick Season is Upon Us... Help?

    So tick season has returned. I haven't found any yet, but a couple agility classmates have picked ticks off their dogs in the last week so it's just a matter of time, and probably very little of it. Our ticks are...bad. Really bad. Last spring despite keeping the dog yard clear of debris...

    ShaiCrew: And Then There Were Four

    This was the scene for nearly an hour today: "I like you a lot, Webster." "...Okay, you can stay." And Lodin has a new favorite today...our oldest toy...the one that Kim brought home with her from her foster mom, all those years ago. The mutant dinosaur with a wailing squeaker that...

    Toy Breed Owners

    So to all the toy breed owners around here... Just want to say I have a new appreciation for how hard it is for you guys to find well-made, inexpensive, lightweight gear for your dogs. I went to Petsmart last night trying to pick up a reasonably cheap 3/8" collar for the little man, who...

    A Week Later, Lodin is Still Cute

    So he's been home for one week today, and he's still cute. In case you guys were wondering, haha He's a super puppy. Not prone to crate screaming, yet anyway, so that is a blessing after the woeful opera wailers that were Mira and MacNut as puppies. Very bitey, completely crazy for toys, and...

    Just a few from Lodin's first full day in his new life :) Haz a bucket? He was so cute on the bucket that I treated him there, though I didn't really mark it. So then he was sure the bucket was the secret to success and kept putting paws up on it, haha Mr. Feet Apprentice is...
