Mackya is very cute~!  He looks a lot like my first "dog" Jasper.  Jasper was GSD/Husky/Wolf and had a lot of the traits that Patrick's post indicates for the Saarloos.

Jasper though loved my boys (he was 8 when I had my first son) and would have protected them with his life.  No need for me to worry if I wanted to take a walk late at night either.   ;D

Maple and Woody like Classic Rock and Country (gee, that's what I like too)   :)

They don't like current Heavy Metal, especially when my older son is playing the drums.  That's the only time that both dogs want OUT.

They do seem to like when my younger son is playing his guitar though, unless he has the gain turned up.

That is so wrong on so many fronts~!  Sounds more like a backyard breeder than a reputable one~!

I do have to admit that I got Woody from someone who purposely bred their German Shorthair (AKC champ at that) with the Weimarainer/Lab mix from next door, 'cause they "thought it would make for cute puppies"~!  >:(  In any case for that, I only had to pay $20 for him.  If those idiots didn't do that, I wouldn't have had my great Momma's boy for the last 13 years.

Well, Guinness came home yesterday.  He's disoriented and the Phenylbarb makes it worse (at least until his body gets used to it).  They also have him taking Potasium Bromide, and say it will take a week to 10 days for him to get back to "normal".  Poor guy, but, hopefully this will do the trick :-)

Medical Conditions & Diseases / Prayers for Sis's Mal

Any prayers you can spare would be appreciated.  My Sister's Mal, Guinness, had a grand mal siezure last night, and she got her arm in the way and got bit.  Luckily, my parents are out in Aurora CO visiting her and took her to the ER for stitches. Then, when got home, Guinness had another siezure, so they took him to the doggy ER at Alameda East, and he is still there tonight.  They think they have him stabalized now, but have him on valium, because he keeps pulling out the catheters.  He hasn't had a seizure since 2am this morning, so they are planning on sending him home tomorrow after the Neurologist sees him.  He'll have a prescription for Phenylbarbital to take daily.  Hopefully, this will control his seizures (he's had a few before, but nothing as bad as this).
Poor big guy, when the vet's called her tonight, they told her, he is "Very needy", and she could hear him in the background.  Apparently, everytime the Vet Tech leaves him, he starts howling/yowling.  He is definitely a Mama's boy :-)

I've always free fed my cats.  For me, the biggest concern is putting the food where the dogs can't get it.  Cats seem to be pretty good about regulating how much they eat.  Currently, my cat has free reign to dry food and we feed her wet food 3 times a day (she's elderly and doesn't eat much dry food).

There is one out in the San Joaquin Valley here in CA.  The owner is the richest man in the valley, and has Long Horn cattle, camels and other exotics.  The Zebra is with donkeys and is very friendly.  My friend and I stop to pet it when we go by.  Haven't seen it lately :-(

Beautiful Mals~!  I don' think my sister's spoiled Mal, Guinness, would survive that :-)  How nice that you can have the dogs do what they are bread for~!

Hi Tracy~!  My Sister lives in Aurora.  When she travels, she boards her dogs at their Vet's, Alameda East (you know, the one on Discovery Channel).  Her cat usually just stays home, but, I'm pretty sure they board cats there too.

A moose? Cuz you, there are lots of moose in rural northwest Indiana?  ???

That was the only thing I could think of too, but, I just can't see that.  Of course, I'm not a hunter either (no offense meant to the responsible hunters here).  Wouldn't the lack of antlers be a clue?

I was thinking the same thing Nicole.  What do you mistake a Belgian for, some big*ss dear? 

It is pretty pathetic.  I know of several incidents like this, and there is no way the animals were mistaken for "game".  The Livermore incident, the horses and cow were in pastures right next to the highway.  Oh, and, up north a bit, some dumn*ss drove up the highway shooting cattle at various dairy farms.  I would be ashamed to have parented any of them~!

And, some people think Humans are an "inteligent life form".  >:(

We just had something like this a couple of weeks ago in Livermore CA.  Two horses and a cow were shot.  WTF?

I love the way Tink looks now  ;D  She reminds me of my brothers Bearded Collies.  They were both born black with white markings, and have changed to grey as they aged.  He says that's just the way Beardies are.  ;D

Maple ate lots of dog pillows while she was growing up.   :D  They must have tasted really good.  For the last 3 years (she's 7 now), she has stopped eating them.  For my first dog, I made pillow covers out of old bluejeans, and they held up better than any store bought pillows.
