Alaskan Malamute Pictures / That crazy Zoey of mine!
« on: June 21, 2008, 06:06:29 pm »
Some new updated pictures of Zoey for you guys.  :) Zoey is 3 years old and has lightened in color quite a bit since we first brough her home in 2005. But we love her lots! She's certainly a character! The first pic is proof of it!  :D

Goofy girl

All wet from a bath awhile ago

With her sister, being sweet  :)

Saint Bernard Pictures / A few new pictures of Dolly
« on: June 21, 2008, 06:01:11 pm »
Hey guys, I hadn't posted pics of either of my girls in a little while, so figured why not do it now?!  :) I'll post some of Zoey in a separate thread too I think.

Dolly is officially 3 years old as of May. We succesfully put her on a diet, she lost 10 pounds, and she is now right on the target weight I had for her; 125 pounds.  :) She has blowing a lot of her coat out this year, it's a bit overwhelming! lol! She is inside right now and says hi to everyone and wants them to try to convince her mommy not to give her a bath tomorrow.  :D ::)

This pic is WHY I'm giving her a bath tomorrow.  :D ::)

Here she is with her sister Zoey.  :)

She can be clean!

That's all for now!

I know some dogs who were shown at the Specialty too!

Who won BOB/BOS? :)

Events to go to or join / Dog-n-Jog in June!
« on: April 26, 2008, 08:24:45 pm »
The Humane Society of Greater Kansas City is hosting its 21st annual Dog-n-Jog event! It's on June 8!  ;)

This is so much fun to attend! ;D They have tons of booths, free goodies to give away all morning, and there are literally thousands of dogs and people that attend! They have a 1 mile walk or jog to do if you'd like or a 2 mile walk or jog. Mom and I are signed up to do the 2 mile walk; we get goodie bags with t-shirts in them too!  :D

I know not many BPO members are in my area, but if you are and you're looking for a fun dog event to do, this is a great one! All the money goes to support rescue efforts in Kansas City.  Anyone interested in meeting up for this?  :)

I'm sure it's scary seeing your pup bleeding. None of us likes to see our babies hurt in any way.

I'm going to put it simply; Tani's 4 and bigger than your pup. If she WANTED to really hurt him, she would have. Because whatever the squabble was over resulted in 1 puncture wound at it was on the muzzle, not some vital part of the body, that says to me, he was bugging her and she snapped at him. Totally appropriate on her part. No, I wouldn't correct her. Kai's a pup and she was correcting HIM. But next time, if you can tell he's hacking her off, give her a chance to breathe so SHE doesn't have to correct him; you do it. Distract him and take him outside to play and let her have a moment to herself. Or give him a toy or bone to go play with. We don't him to think he can bug her as much as he wants with no consequences. She has her limits, and it's totally understandable the way she reacted. Again, if she really wanted to hurt him, she has the physical ability to do it. The fact is, she didn't. In fact, his injury could be accidental. Maybe she went to snap or nip at him or near him, and he moved and her tooth caught his muzzle. Totally likely and happens all the time. If an injury is to the ear, muzzle, cheek, etc., it's usually the result of a careless tooth or claw. Not the result of a vicious biting or attack.  ;) Don't sweat it too much, but give Tani a break when you notice he's bugging her.

Thank you everyone! Zoey sends kisses to everyone who voted for her, and to those who didn't too!  :D :-* :-* :-* Congrats to Apollo as well!

One of the shelter workers at that shelter has posted about this dog on several other dog forums I'm on and said rescues or transports are welcome, she wants to save this dog.

AWESOME NEWS!!!!! I found a rescue that can take him and if he's not adopted by Thursday morning, I will be pulling him on Friday and taking him to a no-kill rescue on Saturday. I have some friends who have GENEROUSLY agreed to help towards the adoption fee. I'm so excited, this guy has a chance now! A real chance!

Tazz is right on the adoption fee, it's $92 but 80 refund after neuter, which I don't know how much that would cost either in our area. I'm going to call the shelter as soon as it's open and find out if he's possibly been adopted yet or if there's been much interest in him. if not, I'll ask them when his last day is and TRY to go get, then try to get him to a no-kill rescue unless someone else wants him. I just don't know if this will work, but it just makes me cry to think of him being put down.

Tobeysmum, thank you thank you thank you for your generous offer to help with his fee possibly! Any help to getting this guy safe will be appreciated! Thank you thank you!

Guys, I keep looking at this guy just crying because I just don't know what to do. He's 1 year old and is in my town's animal shelter. They will euthanize him sometime this week I believe as he's already been there 1 week and they only give 2 weeks. He's gorgeous, looks purebred and was neglected by his previous owners.

I'd even be willing to help transport. I want to even just pull him and take him to a local shelter that is no-kill just an hour away, but I don't have the funds to pay his adoption fee. Can someone help this dog somehow? Please!!! I'm desperate!  :-[ :(

Yep! Bought from them last year! Love their prices, great service! In fact, just ordered this year's meds from them about 5 minutes ago!  :D We buy the heartworm prevention from them too. it's generic, so a lot cheaper, but just as effective.  :) Two thumbs up for them from over here!

I agree on both accounts.  You might even look at getting something like an air horn.  They're pretty good at breaking up fights. 

Just wanted to say how sorry I am that this happened to you, your friend, and your dog. This pit needed to be put down, end of story. There is no solution for his issues, it seems from his history. it's best that he's been put down, things are safer now.

Sorry to say, but if breaking a chair over this pit and kicking him in the face didn't distract him from trying to attack her dog, a fog horn ain't gonna do it either. Dogs determined to fight will do so with or without human interference. As you can see, she and her friend already got bitten. Imagine this angry dog suddenly being scared by a loud noise coming from a human and then turning his attention fully on her. Not good either.

For most dog fights, pulling each dog apart from each other by grabbing the tails (NOT BY THE NECK OR COLLAR, YOU WILL GET BITTEN!)will do. However, when you have a dog locked on to the other that won't let go, that won't work either. Like I said, a dog determined to injure the other one is going to do so with or without a human's interference. It's scary stuff right there, a dog attack. I don't recommend a gun, too many things could happen with that, like they said. I'm not gonna tell you what you should or shouldn't have done cause I wasn't there so I don't know. My dogs protect me, and I'll do anything to protect them though.

Yes! Wonderful! Let me send you a private message! Thank you!  :)

As someone who personally spent over a year battling to get rid of the feral cats living under their house, I for one don't think this is such a bad idea. As long as the time from a cat being seized to it being euthanized is adequate for an owner to come and claim their cat if it is their pet and not feral, I think it's a good idea. People who let their cats run loose and produce kittens don't realize how much of a nuissance feral cats are. You can't catch them easily, they get into things (the ones by us were eating the dog food, scratching up window screens, and had they ever bitten us I know they could be carrying all sorts of diseases), and they are dangerous at times!

Plus, these feral cats must find food for themselves or starve to death. In winter, there's only one option for them really. And unless I wanted to watch these feral cats starve to death, which I didn't, we had to put out food for animals that aren't even ours! Not only is it an inconvenience, it got expensive feeding 5 feral cats! At least this way, they won't be hit by cars, starving, or getting attacked by other feral cats or dogs even. At least they'll be humanely euthanized.

Like I said though, so long as they give people long enough to go claim their cats (or check for collar tags or microchips)if they are indeed pets, not feral, I'm for it.
