Hey all. I was a member here YEARS ago and recently adopted a new pup... I want to post some pics and introduce myself again, but IM having trouble posting. The FAQ said to click "additional options" to post a pic there... but no luck. Can someone let me know what Im doing wrong? Thanks! Look forward to getting to know you all!

WTF!?!?! I would have had a heart attack.  Where do you live?  I lived in Hawaii for a couple years and my good friend got stung by a scorpian on his "buttocks"  :) He got out of hte shower and pulled his shorts on and the scorpian had been inside the shorts. Talk about a shocker! But man - you've had more than enough scares - time to move! Thank God she is okay!

Been there, done that! I wasnt sure about baby number 3, so I decided to get a puppy instead... it worked out great. Now, I am SOOOO glad I didnt have a human child, and am even adding another puppy soon to the family!  My view on kids is like this... I wanted 3 until I had 2 and now I just want 1.  :) Not that I dont adore my human kids - but man, 2 is rough!

Yep - I am going nuts! Luckily the breeder puts up with my daily phone calls! hehe  :) Now the name game begins!
My daughter wants to call him Talon, or Tavon, or Triton - but really just so she can call him "Mr. T"  my son wants to call him "King Arthur" my mom wants to call him "Beckett" and I am leaning towards "Jagger". (in honor of the big lips on a newf!) Thoughts?

Here are some pics of the newf pups! They are 2 1/2 weeks old. I cant wait to bring him home! I swear he is waving at me in one of them saying "Hi Mommy!"

Is that a recognized color for a newf?

Okay - I have to admit I laughed out loud and spit out my apple watching you try and drag a newf in to the water! Hysterical! And then to see Sophie get dunked and Momma come to the rescue! I love it! 
Question about the ramp - does it fold up and go in the car to get them back in once at the destination?

So Timber took his CGC test today and passed! Yea! Before I took him in for the test, I groomed him with some new stuff I got and I loved it! I used the shampoo, conditioner and leave in conditioner. (his picture after is attached) The leave in conditioner says you can spray it on them when they are dry too. I tried with with Meli - just srayed it on and blew her dry -and she was soft and smelled great. Thought I'd share what it was.

what do you all use?

Do you have kids?  If so - ask them! My golden had the same exact thing happen and we couldnt figure out what it was until one day my 5 year old son confessed " I shaved her with that pink shavey thing in the shower". of course I sat in disbelief - not that he would do it (he's all boy) but that she would let him! I asked what she did when he shaved her and he said "nutting - she just sat there". Guess he was playing groomer! her hair is still growing back in that spot!

I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. It's amazing how our pets can sense when we need them. God bless.

Timber is notorius for doing that. He cleans Meli's feet too!  The crazy thing is that Meli loves it and has never moved or made him stop. They'd sit there forever if I left them.

Shepard mix maybe? She is precious! congrats on rescuing her!!!

I agree here - if she will be outdoors, you need to keep those nails. Mine have never stepped foot out there so the declaw was fine. But they need nails outdoors to protect themselves. As for nail cutting - its not bad at all. But what you do need to know is that cat nails are not like dog nails. Dog nails are out there for all to see. Cat nails retract into their paw until they choose to use them on your furniture or leg! So you have to put your thumb into the palm of their paw and squeeze and the claws will come out for you to cut. There are special cat claw cutters out there. I wouldn't use a dog cutter, as cats claws are more delicate and thin. Just wrap them in a towel and hold them like a baby with belly up and go to work!  Also,The cardboard box may be big enough, but the cat may hate it since it cant see out. Being fully enclosed can freak them out if they are there not by choose. Imagine completely covering your dogs crate and not letting them see out into the room... you may have one wound up aggressive kitty when you take it out. A cage will be your best option.

I was not a cat person until I got my precious babies. Yep, 2 of them. I went for one and 2 sisters crawled into the cat carrier so I couldnt separate them. I will tell you that the dogs WILL feast on the cat box as if you put treats in the dang thing. Find a way to separate it from the dogs. Mine is in my laundry room and we cut a hole in the bottom of the door that the dogs cant fit through. AS for counters, mine never get on counters. I go to my friends house and they are walking everywhere! They are like dogs, they will do what they can get away with. A few good water bottle squirts and a loud eh - eh will keep them off. Kittens are rough as they play and wake you up at night, but as they get older they are lazy lap cats. Worth the wait. I did choose to have mine front declawed. They tried to climb me like a tree one to many times. After my kids and i were clawed to death, I couldnt take it anymore. best thing I ever did. Now none of us are scared to hold them anymore! I did have a foster kitty once, and I used an extra large dog crate. He had a litter box, pillow, box to hide in and food and water in there it was so big!

take pictures!!!!
