Subject:Vet Checkup
Time:12:10 pm
Took both Smudge and Mitsi to the vet yesterday and both got clean bill of health. :) Both had to get a Bordatello shot but poor Smudge also needed his distemper and parvo along with some blood drawn for a heartworm check. I asked them to also express Mitsi's anal glands as she had been scooting around the rugs a bit. I also asked the vet how old she figured Mits was. I didn't think she was as young as the rescue had claimed and I was right. :) She put her at almost 3, which is Smudge's age too. Smudge's teeth were perfect, no problem there but Mitsi has some buildup on her back teeth. I'll make an appointment next month for a cleaning and also to get her micro-chipped.

She behaved ok in the car but wanted to get up in the front with me. No can do, my pooches must remain in the back. If I got hit or hit something I could end up squishing Mits between me and the air bag. Not a good thing. She does have a strange cry, something between a yowling cat and a human baby!

I talked to a guy in the waiting room who had a Basengi! I've only seen them on tv and in books so a live one was novel. :) Such a pretty dog too. He was telling me how he had gotten him from the breeder who had originally sold him to a couple in Georgia. After just 2 weeks they decided they didn't want him so they sent him back...in the original crate! A pup does a lot of growing in 2 weeks so when the pup did come he couldn't even stand up! (Some people just shouldn't own anything other than a pet rock)

Mitsi is settling down nicely here. I think she was so nervous in the car because of being abandoned, then
leaving the foster home where she had lived for 4 months. I wish I could tell her this is her forever home and she will never be abandoned again!

Subject:A New Chi!!!
Time:08:57 pm
I had the sad event of putting down my poor Sealyham Terrier gracie down last month. She had developed a brain tumor just a couple months shy of her 12th birthday and there was nothing we could do. Goodbye, my dear gracie Girl.

But on the plus side I saw a lovely little black and tan Chihuahua in a shelter nearby that some heartless idiot just abandoned at the edge of a wood. I called them up last Wednesday and just heard from the foster home a little bit ago. They're bringing her around this Friday evening!!! She's already house-trained, still young at 2 years and spayed. Smudge needs a playmate and I believe she just will fit that bill. :)

Kind of difficult to figure why it's so much harder to adopt than to buy a dog. I know they're looking for the best possible home but really.

Subject:|| Too Thin ||
Time:08:40 am

I have a very thin new budgie that seems to eat nothing but seed. How can I put some weight on him if all he will eat is seed? Any suggestions on getting him to broaden his dietary horizons?

Worst Place Ever To Buy A Dog!!!
http://www.boutiqueteacuppuppies.com/

Eagds!!! Not only are the prizes ridiculous but if any of those pups survive their first year it would be a miracle. >_< These are grossly deformed pups, and DO NOT go by any breed standard!!!! She's not even the breeder!!! She buys them from someplace in Korea!!! Never never EVER buy pups from a broker such as this. If you do, not only will you pay a fortune for one of these malformed creatures but will also most likely be saddled with a huge vet bill in trying to keep them alive!!!

Anyone who would buy from places like this is nothing more than a purebred idiot.

Hello again.

Does anyone have any tips on how to help a 9 year old tom cat and my 5 month old chihuahua get along?

I have the sweetest cat in the world and I'm surprised that he hasn't tried to eat her yet. She does nothing but pester him and I'm worried that he will eventually lash out at her.

He weighs about three times what she does, so naturally, I'm worried.

Thanks again!!

Theodore turned 3 on New Year's Day.  On May 2nd we had to have Sinbad (7 1/2 year old chow/shar pei mutt) PTS.  Ever sense Sinbad has been gone Theodore growls at everybody, human & animal.  He doesn't snap or go after them, just growls.  He doesn't even get up or anything.  I thought maybe he just missed Sinbad & would go back to normal, but he hasn't.  We got a 2nd dog (Shih Tzu, turned 3 this month) in June.  They seem to get along okay, but he still growls at everybody.  Any ideas on why or how to get him to stop?  Vet says he's healthy as can be.
