Re: Crisis

Shalista, I agree with JudyN. You have done everything you could to figure out why Bax was whining. Setting boundaries is positive. We all need to set boundaries at some time. Even people need to set boundaries with other people. And, as in Judy’s example of the whining child, boundaries need to be ...

Re: First day at the nursing home

Shalista, I think it was a great test for Bax & you. Now, you know how he acts in this type of situation. I think it would definitely be a good idea to call before visiting your resident. It would let you know she is there for sure & would also give her a heads up in case she wants to have her hair ...

Re: Ranches

I know Sandy would not do well with it. He is a chihuahua and fear reactive. I know he would try to fight any dog, as he tried to do at a Navy Lodge where the dog next door got loose, came to our door just when OH was taking him out, and Sandy jumped on this fluff ball and had it by the neck. All in...

Re: Introducing... Charley-Weasels!

Emmabeth,

She’s adorable! I love the top photo. Sandy doex that too, & one night we went in to where he sleeps & he was sleeping win his back with all paws in the air like Charley-Weasels.

Now, how did she get that name? :D Charlie-Weasels.
It must mean something.

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

I haven’t figured out how to post photos. The way I used to do it doesn’t work anymore. I used to have him as my icon.

I tried Flickr with no luck.
Any ideas!

Shalista, Yeah! Good going with Bax! This is wonderful! :D :D :D Sandy is doing much better after having his three teeth removed. He is still on soft diet, but he hasn’t had pain med in two days. OH says Sandy is doing well when he takes him to the park, too. Next week on Thursday, he has his follow...

Re: Reactive out the window

Yes, JudyN, is right on. You want him to feel that his crate is a safe and wonderful hide out for him. It reminds me about a TV ad I saw today for a bedtent for kids. This way, they have the head of the bed under this tent with different starry skies that with a night light, gives children a sense o...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Thing is, Diane, I don't want to stop him going on the sofa or my bed. In the afternoon the sun shines through the window onto the sofa making it soooo inviting - I can't deny him! And as he's a stress-head, it's good for him to be able to sleep somewhere with a nice comforting smell of - well - me...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

JudyN, I wish I had a solution. Sandy has torn up the backs of two recliners. I have covered the areas with canvas. So, he started on the arms of the recliners. Since one of the recliners had been mine, OH bought me a new one. So, what I have done is piled boxes on it when I’m not sitting on it. Whe...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

JudyN, Each time I've looked at him, with the physique of a thoroughbred in its prime (not that I'm biased or anything), and replied, 'He's NOT too old, he's just too grumpy!' It’s hard to see them getting older. Hard to believe that both Jasper & Sandy are going to be 8 years old next month. :D I w...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

LotsofQs, Cute video. I can see why people would want to pet him. And, he does look like he is trying to get dry. How does he do with hair dryer? Sandy hates the rain and won’t go out unless we hold an umbrella over him :lol: That’s how I fell at the rest stop. It was a light rain, I had on my rain ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

JudyN, I would check Jasper’s leg & paw just to make sure there isn’t any more bleeding. If he’s still licking it, it could be a scab, more bleeding, or a bruise. Even if he has stopped bleeding, there could still be dried blood in the bedding so that won’t tell you as much. I’m assuming that since ...
