New to Big Paws
« on: July 05, 2006, 08:30:22 pm »
Here's a picture of my 15 year old Weim and her Dobie housemate, Bella.  Bella had demodectic mange so badly when she came to me as a pup, one line of thinking was that it would almost be more humane to put her down.  She's clear now and has only had one bad outbreak in 2 years...when I left her in a kennel while I went on holiday.  The stress of Mom being gone was just too much to bear.  There's a simple cure for that...I just don't leave her anymore unless it's with my daughter who she adores.  My daughter lives in Mobile, 3 hours away.  The logistics is challenging sometimes to get the girls to Mobile, so unless it's absolutely necessary, they travel with me.

Welcome aboard.  I'm Amy and I am owned by Dell, an 18 month old White Shepherd/Lab mix who is full of hellfire and brimstone.

This place is so great!  I'm sure you'll love it here.

Thanks for the warm welcome.  The dog bed came from Sam's Club.  It was inexpensive and besides the bargin, I've been very pleased with the way it has held up.  The cover zips off and washes up easily.  I suppose I should list all my companions here, eh?  There are Shade and Bella, of course, 3 cats (rescue):  Mr. Beasley, Blue, and Pilgrim.  Beasley and Blue are old; Pilgrim was just rescued on...can you guess?  Thanksgiving morning this past year.  Then there are Shalil, a 20-year old Thoroughbred mare, her daughter Beamer (also TB), 8, and Beamer's son, Kern, who is a 2 year old TB/Trakehner cross.  My daughter, who lives in Mobile, is active on the boards.  She has a rescue Boxer...just lost her beloved Navarre (GSD) a short time ago.  She met the south AL group at the event in Pensacola on 1 July.  Was VERY impressed and had a great time, too.  I'd better get to work... Yuck!
