Introduce Yourself to the Forum / Re: Axel

Welcome to BPO. I have to agree, he is a cutie!

I'm Annette and I have an almost 3 year old Bullmastiff, Jagermeister. I switched Jager to Eukanuba when I first got him but found that his digestion (and gas!) fair better with Purina One. There are probably alot better foods out there for him and as Tina said there is a list of top kibbles in the Food Forum.

Jager just now got used to sitting for us to brush him. He chewed the first one  ::)

As far as the teeth and paws go, like everyone else suggested, wait till he's worn out. Jager's toe was broken when he was a puppy (he decided to run under my feet when I was jumping on the deck  :-\ ) so he won't let you mess with that foot too much but the other paws he'll let you play with. I got pretty much open his mouth and put my hand in there at any time. He trained me as a puppy that napkins, paper and socks taste go so I had to go on a slobbery expedition to retrieve them  ::) The biting and chewing do stop but replacing with something appropriate helps alot! And good behavior rewarded goes a LONG way.

Jager has a bunch of these toys: (the crackler toys keep him busy)

Welcome to the board!

What a cutie! He's so fluffy! I'll cuddle too if you need a break!

Thank you guys for letting me know that I'm not suffering alone! You would think he ran a marathon since he's STILL just laying around, unless your cooking then he's next to the stove.

I'm going to see if my "baby daddy" will buy the Bamboo leash for him for Christmas. Let Daddy spend some money on the boy. Mommy pays for all the vet bills, food, and toys! J and I were dating when Jager came home so he has and always will be Daddy. We stayed friends so when I go on cruises he'll stay here so I don't have to board Jager.

I'm going to have to look if I put my seats down if I can attach him to the hooks as a temporary fix!

I was told that Saturday PetsMart is doing pet photos and asked "Are you going to take Jager?" I sent the link for this post and said "Um...probably not since he goes a little crazy" time to just load him in the car and drive around the neighborhood to have him behave in the car.

LOL Poor Tub. He's not having a good week!

Jager is terrified of rain but LOVES the pool and the Gulf (haven't taken him to the other coast for the ocean but he'll like it). Go figure. Tub may be like Jager in that he donesn't like unknown things on his paws!

Awwwe! What a pretty girl!

So it's taken me 2 days just to recover from taking Jager to PetsMart and tell about it.

I bought a Kurgo thing from the SkyMall magazine (I lived in hotels across the country for 4 weeks). I read that it can be confusing and difficult to put it but I also read it works very well. Um.... NO. My headrests don't come out so yes it was difficult to put in (I have a Mazda6). After fighting with it for a week I decided to take Jager to PetsMart and leave the very top mesh piece off. There's no way he could get into the front with it, his heads too big. WRONG! We weren't even to the corner of our street and Jager was trying to climbing into my mom's lap. Half of him was over the little divider!

So we put into the business parking lot at the end of the street and FOUGHT him into the back to put the mesh piece at the top. We get onto the main road and who decides to say "Screw that little mesh piece with metal holding it up, I'm coming up front!" Yeah. I'm soing like 45 with him stuck on this "great" divider BARKING in my ear. So I pull into the closest parking lot and stop the car. My mom is like squished under half the dog asking what she wants me to do. So I have her get out real fast and act like she's opening the back door. He decides "Free seat" and climbs all the way into the front. Mind you this divider is now all drooping because it works "great."

So I have to get out and leave Jager in the front seat and open the back door to try to get him to the back. There is a homeless guy sitting next to the building watching us and stiffening at the barking. I felt bad for him ("MONSTER!"). Jager finally</> got back in the back seat but got his leg stuck on the divider then tried to run out of the car as I was reaching in to help him. I tied his leash around the back headrests so he could stand, turn and sit but not come in front.

We get to the store and for the first time he's pulling my arm out of socket to get inside. We get inside and he just STOPS.  >:( Now I'm pulling him to the bones and stuff. At this point my mom is like "He doesn't deserve *beeeeeeeep*."  :D I love my mom. Well he decides to start behaving when we pass the Kongs. Kong=peanut butter in his mind.

We pick up a new kong, some rawhides (I know not the best but it keeps him from chewing on the cat) and go to the check out. Well some lady walks her like Yorkie out the door. Jager decides to let out two big boy barks in line.  :
-[ He scared the lady and little girl in front of us AND himself!  :D

So I gave my mom my debit card and went outside with him to check pee-mail in the bushes. He was better on the drive home but again had to tie him to the seats. I guess I gave him a little more room this time because I had a big "monkey" nose in my ear  at the traffic lights.

::Sigh:: I need to clean all the snot off my windows.

Does anyone else have these problems? How can I fix this without sedating him just to go to the store? LOL

Seriously though, what do you guys use to keep the pups in back? I DON'T recommend the Kurgo!

Awwwe he's handsome! I love his cape!  :-*

LOL I have one of those who is 2 (3 in Feb) and is STILL in the "I'm scared of everything but so help God the squirrel that dare to set foot on the property" stage. It is quiet amusing to watch him hop on his hind legs barking at the top of the fence at the squirrel though.

Hopefully you can take a shower and get ready in peace in a few days!

My godmother used to own a place in northern WI in a town called Haywood. The Birkebeiner races are held near there so it's pretty good skiing. Figured I'd at one to the pot.

OOO if Lin gets transfered, party in TN! HEHE Wishful thinking right? It would be like an 18 hour drive but I love it up there so well worth!

Another one with amazing talent? So so jealous. I did a cross stitch of a growth chart for my niece. I started it the week we found out she was on the way (2004) and she got it for her first christmas (2005). Kassie laughed because you couldn't use it as a growth chart, I messed up all the spacing on the numbers!  :D :D
