My dogs have been on Blue for a year or so now, and I'm happy with it. But it isn't exactly low-grain which I thought would be better for a dog with skin allergies? I started him on fish oil today, so hopefully that will help some too.

I also st found out that they also breed boston terriers, cairn terriers, silky terriers, chihuahuas "and more!"

I hate puppymills.

How can I find out if they are in good standing with the AKC? Or if any lawsuites have been filed against them? Or if animal control has ever been called?

I have a phone number, if I should call, what would be good questions to ask?

Thanks y'all! I think since I have tried Nutro foods, I'll take her to the pet store to look at those. She lives alone, and her dog is her world (she made the nurses sneak him into the hospital so he would be there with her when they pronounced my grandfather dead)

Thanks again,
Leah and Kerry

This is so exciting, y'all. I'm finding out about the breeder of my grandma's lhasa from his AKC registration papers (which are very sketchy).

So far I know who bred him, and that they were USDA certified and the litter was registered, that they sold him to ****'s kennel, and that that man sold him to Lynnhaven mall's pet store two days later. That man died in a fire on his farm. I also know that his sire was 7 years old, and his dam was only 1 year old when the litter was born in 1999.  >:(

Basically this has opened my eyes to what goes on in a puppymill. They breed as many litters as they can, ship the puppies off to someone who then ships them off to pet stores, to be sold to whoever thinks they're cute. My grandma got him from someone later, not from the pet store. This is fascinating. The dog came from Missouri, origonally.

I know I'm just ranting, but this fascinates me.

The Lhasa I'm living with has skin allergies, and is allergic to flea bites (not that he gets those often) and he itches a lot. He's not on any meds right now, but is eating I think Iams (yuck) so I suggested finding a better food. His owner (my Grandma) can't afford to put him on anything super fancy, but he's a little dog and doesn't eat much. What should I recommend?

Moni, he's GORGEOUS! I love the name, too. He looks like he's having a ball. He'll be free-stacking before you know it.

Saber. Like the big sword or like a saber-toothed tiger.

Masy (Like Macy)


Kero or Karo



Oh! And Kaser! Or Kayser, Kaiser, however you want to spell it.

I got Aero and Okra. Lol

Oh gosh I love that picture! You better get that boy into a sport! That look says "give me the ball... need the ball.. THROW the ball!"

Hmmm the flight's only a couple hundred bucks... And he comes with free barks, mud and kisses! I think the last thing my parents want is another dog running around, especially one Brannigan's size!
