Well....had to let you know how Mikey is doing with his "problem."  Things were looking pretty grim for him....drainin g sticky stuff making a mess of his fur and making it stick to everything and pulling and hurting.  I decided to go with my own instincts.  I realized that it did have to drain, but, why should he be miserable.  When he was in my presence I took the Ecollar off and let him clean himself up....didn't let him get to the area of draining, but let him clean up the sticky areas...he seemed to be happy with that.  After a couple of days like that....I would have to collar him at night and when I couldn't be right with him...things really look good.  Everything is back to a nice pink healthy tissue...he is comfortable and contented.  There is still some minimal drainage, but the swelling has gone way it is about the size it was before neutering....a nd they were really large then...the vet said she was surprised to find testicles that large in a dog of his young age....funny.  So....looks like things are taking care of God intented.  Let nature take it's course and it usually does a good job.  Thanks so much for caring....mary

Ok Guys....haven't visited this site for a while...been very busy with human emergencies.  Anyway,  a couple of weeks ago I have both my make and female Kuvasz "fixed".  My girl did awesome.  However, my big boy didn't fair so well.  Before we even left the vets office his scrotum was swollen to the size of a small mellon.  I kept him quiet...he didn't even did at stitches.  He is such a good boy.  But, NOW, he is dripping blood and serum and licking.  I have put the ECollar back on him, but now his back end is filthy and matted due to drainage.  Vet said this could take even a month more.  Question....ha ve any of you had a male go through this?  He is such a patient boy, but I can tell he is miserable.  I will now have to go to the groomer...frie nd of mine... tomorrow to help me get this area cleaned up and shaved to help keep it clean.  I realize that drainage is good...healing from the inside out, but this should have been a simple snip job......poooo ooor Mikey!!!!!!!!!!!!1

WOW...What a chubby puppy!!!   Mikey is only weighing in at about 90 lbs...He still isn't a big eater, but can run 5 miles with me without a problem.  I try to put some weight on him cause he looks like a skinny puppy still, but is actually finally starting to bulk up a little...alway s looks skinny when he blows that coat.  Coat is thickening up now, too.  He doesn't eat when mommy isn't home, and I was gone most of this summer.  Back home now and he is eating like a little piggy.  mary

Not only funny looking, but think of the personality... .not only a scottish terror, but a thinking one at that.  It would actually PLAN it's attack.  Tee hee.

Imagine....a Kuvasz crossed with a Scotty.  Not going to happen, but I thought I would give you all a chuckle.  Little missy gets spayed on Monday....went in heat yesterday..go figure.  I scheduled this a couple of weeks ago.  They said at that time they could still do her even if she did go in heat.  I thought a scotty/kuvasz cross sounded hilarious!!!

I am so sorry to hear of your miscarriage.  I have been there before....take your time to grieve for even though people will was for the best...the pain is still there.  Maybe for some it was never real, but for you it was.  My sister once had a thought about this kind of loss that seem to make things a little just wasn't the right time...the baby is just waiting for a better time.  You will still meet him or her.  But, for now, cry, be sad, hug you furfriends, and then you will start again.  With love, mary

Mike has been going to puppy school since last summer.  He is now bored with obedience so I am thinking I will do agility or rally with him next....until he is ready for therapy.  I am going to be gone this summer for about 7 weeks...planni ng on solo kayak trip around Lake Superior starting June 17.  I am worried about seems he doesn't eat when I am gone and starts throwing up alot.  I was just gone most of last week and he is now finally eating again and feeling secure with his family.  Dan will be planning on restocking me at parts of the trip and hopefully I will be able to see mikey.......I hate to say it, but I will probably mis Mike more than anything while I am gone.  Go figure!!!  I am so excited for you....sheep and all....that should be way cool to watch the beasties interact!

But, my concern is that someone is out there looking for is rare that we have wondering dogs about here.  I have two cockatoos in a very large cage here and a black lab would really, really cause a ruckus.  I would love to just take him an put him in with my son, but then Mikey and K2 would be pacing the floor all night long and I think my husband would divorce me....hey, wait, that might be a good idea. Oops, did I say that!!???

I went to let Mike in and wouldn't ya know....he found a buddie.  Well....I don't know where  this friendly black lab came from, but now he is parked on my doorstep and it is getting colder outside.  If I let him in we will NEVER get any sleep tonight.  I had suspected that he lived a couple of houses down, but the neighbor to them said that ones sports a red collar and this one only has a choker on.  I feel terrible, but I am hoping someone is out there looking for him.  He has good weight and is very friendly so he obviously has a home, but this is going to drive me crazy alllll night long!!!I just hate it when this happens to me...I am such a sucker for a pretty face.

Funny....Mike looks just like them!!!!!!

I especially love it when he is out on a long ski in the bush with me....he is sooooo much fun to watch..always that wonderful kuvasz smile...unless, of course he is playing mommy's protector.. then he is all serious until mom tells him all is well.  He is my first big pup...I have been missing out on soooooooooo much.

I was just reading the article in the paper.  You have to wonder what really occurred for that dog to "escape"?  I sure hope they are able to find the pup......they were saying that the longer it takes the less likely the dog will come to anyone....and just try and catch a whippet!!!!! My prayers are with them!!

Ya...congrats!!   But, just wait til he lifts it on your COUCH!!!!!!!  Right after Mikey learned to lift his leg he did it to the couch...caught him red handed and he hasn't doen it since!!!!!!!!  Actually, this first time he lift his leg was last summer by accident....di d it on his daddy's tackle box..the one with a canvas cover!!!  Dan and I both had huge pike on the lines and no net, and K2, the scottish lass, was sitting right on top of the tackle box just like a throne, and there was Mike, lifting his leg on the box and HER!!!!!!! TEEEEEHEEEEEEE E!!!  All we could do is laugh!
