Those are awesome pics! And Phelan is adorable!!

Wow! 14 mos and 100lbs! Jager is about 2 1/2 yrs and weighs 120. I'm glad he's on the smaller side though.

The breeder I got Jager from used American Airlines. I was so nervous, that I too kept picturing my puppy running loose around the airport. Thankfully, everything went right and came in on time.

Thankfully Dr. Rich took the case!

I have the same problem with Jager. Currently we are housing a quadrapaligeic frog and a one armed bear with no nose. Obviously we do not discrimination on race, religion, sex, or disability. Mr. Frog is actually Mr. Frog III. Mr. Frog is miraculously reincarnated about every 6 months. Toys for "power chewers" just don't hold up!


This is usually Badger's reaction too.  'Big Scary Rotty' cowering with hurt feelings.  I don't really care why the little dogs do this, it PISSES me off.  If I can train my dog to be pleasant, they can train their dogs not to attack him.  I know it's a lack of training because not all little dogs do it. One time, a Dauschand attacked him on the boardwalk, hung from poor Badger's lip while he whimpered and tried to get away....a few minutes later, I ran back into the owner who was BRAGGING to someone else about how their little dillhole dog attacked a HUGE dog.

See that just sounds like an irresponsible dog owner! My neighbor's daughter just got a "taco dog" as we so lovingly call him (no offense to anyone!) He's constantly growl at Jager and jump at him. Jager is terrified when he starts doing that and the granddaughter always brings Joey  out when I'm with Jager in the front yard. Ughh irresponsible breeding on the human end!  >:(

Thank you all so much for helping me out! Tuesday morning I go talk to the Coast Guard recruiter (I'm a former Army wife and definately not going there!). Hopefully I'll still be stationed here in Florida and there are three stations all within an hour drive of my house. There's also an Air Force base (MacDill aka CentCom). I know my family supports me going in as long as it's somewhere I can be close to home!

I'll definately go in as an officer (go me! I'm educated!). But I'm still at a toss up between Air Force and Coast Guard. My family has served both for multiple generations. Again thanks so much for the info. Now I have some more questions for the recruiter.

Hi Guys!

So I've been thinking about joining the military here in the US and I know I probably wont end up close to home to start with. My mom has agreed to "puppy sit" while I'm away at training as well. Anyone have any advise regarding being in the military with a big paw? If your single living on base are they allowed? Moving around? etc.? I want whats best for me and Jager but in no way would I sacrifice him. I have one "advantage" and thats that I will be going in as an officer so I'd have a few (very few) more perks for living.

Thanks for any help!

they are gorgious!! unfortunately florida is not a place to have them but i would love to have one. they are so beautiful!

Thanks for the info! I'll have to try those suggestions. I know he hates the stuff the vet gives us. It's like a thick goop!

I'm going to have to try that! Jager gets ear infections constantly! Infact, he has one right now. This time though, it's his outter ear and not the inner ear. He constantly wants his ears rubbed. I was going to take him to the beach today but I figured with his ears bothering him, probably not a good idea to play in salt water. Do they make doggie earplugs? Once summer comes I know I won't be able to keep him out of the pool and I'd rather prevent than treat. Anyone have any suggests??

I've had to make the decision to send my "baby" to the bridge and I still cry about it. Stitches was 12 and she had dropped considerable weight. For a cat to DROP to 12 pounds...yeah something was wrong. Just after I got Jager I noticed Stitch was acting funny, drinking a lot of water, less active, etc. For the first 2 mos I assumed she wasn't adjusting well to the dog. I took her into the vet and she had dropped from 23 lbs to 18 but that didn't explain the drinking. She was tested and they found that she had diabetes. After spending a crazy amount of money on that vet visit and learning how to give her insulin injections everyday she got a little bit and then started rapidly declining. She could barely stand on her back legs at all, she just kind of slid across the tile. So I spent more money (which wasn't necessarily a bad thing because I got to be with her longer) to adjust her insulin and have her on prescription diet. then one day in nov she couldn't make it into her box. She wasn't eatting or drinking and just looked at me as to say "Mom....please." I could hardly call the vet to make the appointment. My mom left work to drive me to the vet. Jager just laid down in his crate as I was walking out of the house and let out a whimper. The staff was excellent and let us hold her for the whole thing. She growled at the dr which was nothing new (I don't particularly care for him that much either). She looked up at me one last time with her big gold eyes as if to say "I'm okay" and I lost it....kind of like I am now!

What everyone is saying though is true! Zoey will let you know and you'll know. "Mom knows best." Hopefully and from what it sounds like, she's doing well and you won't have to make that decision anytime soon. Good luck to you and Zoey and I'll keep you both in my thoughts.


h*ll hath no fury like children who truley understand the God given kinship between animal & mankind! ;D

How true that is! We had a cat in the house growing up and although I can honestly say I didn't play with her that much growing up, whenever I was sick/scared/worried she'd be right there....kind of like now but it's more of having a half-wall shadow behind me 24 hrs a day!

I never had a dog growing up either. I think I over compensated a little. From those great! pictures I don't think your son will ever forget growing up with his fur siblings.

i'm definately not an expert but he looks like a bullmastiff to me at least from what i can see he looks about the same size as my bully.

VERY handsome though!

I got Jager at 7 1/2 weeks. It was about a week before he would sleep through the night without having to go potty. But I'd take him out about midnight and then again about 6:30. It took a few weeks before he was fully housebroken. I think he had about 4-5 accidents in the house and a few of those were my fault for not "listening" to him whining at the gate.

Good luck with the new puppy and of couse lots of puppy pics!
