He was freaking out i took him for a bath and dropped him off with Bryce and freya who i might add love school but milo could not handle it Leanne his teacher said they put him in the puppy room and he was foming at the mouth. Then they put him in the time out area where there is a 8 foot fence and he jumped the fence all the dogs were barking when he did that cheering him on! She said Bryce was wagging his tail as to say thats my brother is'nt he cool ;D ;D Milo is a people dog not a dog dog he is so sweet you would never know he was AMS Pit he is such a loving dog but only really plays with his brother and sister.Leanne and Stacy said it was to stressful for him today he is limping :-\ :-\ Marina

My mother Had Breast Cancer and she left this world on Friday. I had a wonderful visit with her on Thursday and i missed her passing by 5 min on Friday.I have so much to do but wanted to take a break from it all. Bryce has taken to following me around every where i go he rests his head on the table and stares at me. When i cry he lays his head on my lap.I see a whole different side of Bryce on Tuesday when i took him to school he was kinda strange when i picked him up his teacher said he did not eat his lunch and wanted to hang out with the small dogs he is such a love bug i am so thankful to have him!

 :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Milo's a mess and i feel terrible for him! He has those hot spots and he had surgery on his gum. His gum and a piece of bone were growing over his front fang they thought they might has to take his tooth out but ended up leaving it in for now. He is on 4 different meds and all he does is wimper.He was such a trooper for his surgery the Dr. and the vet tech could not believe how happy he was when he woke up they said Marina we have never had a dog as happy as milo waking up from surgery he is a very good boy! Now when he sees me coming with his meds he runs for it. The pain meds are injected into his mouth and he hates it!
All i can do is pray for his quick healing! :( :(

There were thunderstorms today red light flashing alerts hail you name it! They were pretty loud and the pups stayed home because it was so hot out. I came home to my kitchen being torn all apart Freya ripped all my spice and oil racks down well you can imagine the combo oil and spices ??? ??? Then to top it off they walked in it ! Milo jumped the gate and took a poo in the dining room poor Bryce to big to escape must have watched everything and could not get away from Freya. Not only did she do that she clawed my half door from the kitchen to the dining room.
This is what the thunder does to her and it is only getting worse. I will post a pic of the door that was custom made! Marina

Doberman Discussions / Kingston the Dobie rescue
« on: June 30, 2008, 08:54:41 pm »
Well i thought i found the perfect Dobie for my ex he was a rescue and i know some about his back ground but not what he has been through in the last 3 months. His 1st owners since he was a pup moved over seas they left him with the owners father. He had a heart attack and passed away not one other family memeber would take this yound Dobie beautiful but small.So a rescue group took him he came from Toronto to Buffalo he has lived in a Kennel foster home for the last 2 1/2 months now he is with my ex he has a forever home.He is VERY timid and shy he has bonded w/the ex but he is starting to have puppy moments out breaks of barking nibbling on the ex and sometimes stalking him is this normal? He wimpers a lot to i have 3 rescues and none of them have acted like this. I guess he has  been through a lot he lost the 2 people that he trusted and now i think he has a hard time understanding that he is in his forever home. The first day i came over after a week of being in his forever home he looked at me ran to his bed and peed. I think he thought i was coming to take him away i have never had a dog react that way to me it broke my heart!We took him to school and another dog bit him in the face when my ex came to pick him up he had 2 holes through his face he had to go to the vet and had to have them glued shut. I am hoping he can work things out with Kingston and that he does'nt have to find him another home. Marina

Book Club & Noteworthy Reads / Just A Dog
« on: June 14, 2008, 08:56:55 am »

                       Just A Dog

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."

They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."

Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog,"
but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand
phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust,
and pure unbridled joy.

"Just a dog brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away
from myself and the worries of the day.

I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog",
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man or woman."

So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog"
just smile... because they "just don't understand."

Anything Non-Dog Related / Pork Chop SMILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
« on: June 10, 2008, 12:25:59 am »
In a zoo in California , a mother tiger gave birth to a rare set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately,due to complications in the pregnancy, the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tinysize, they died shortly after birth.

The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The vet erinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.

After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only 'orphans' that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops??
Take a look...

Now, please tell me one more time .........?
Why can't the rest of the world get along??




Treatment & Preventative Meds / Tick removal
« on: June 08, 2008, 08:10:57 pm »
summer is here and the ticks will soon be showing their heads. :o :o :o
Here is a good way to get them off you, your children, or your pets. 
Give it a try. Please forward to anyone with children... Or hunters or dogs,
or anyone who even steps outside in summer!!
A School Nurse has written the info below -- good enough to share --
And it really works!!
I had a pediatrician tell me what she believes is the best way to
remove a tick. This is great, because it works in those places where
it's some times difficult to get to with tweezers: between toes,
in the middle of a head full of dark hair, etc.
Apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the
soap-soaked cotton ball and swab it for a few seconds (15-20),
the tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the cotton ball
when you lift it away.  This technique has worked every time I've used it
(and that was frequently), and it's much less traumatic for the patient
and easier for me. Unless someone is allergic to soap, I can't see
that this would be damaging in any way. I even had my doctor's wife
call me for advice because she had one stuck to her back and she
couldn't reach it with tweezers. She used this method and immediately
called me back to say,  "It worked!"
Please pass on.  Everyone needs this helpful hint.
