Flaming Dr Pepper because 1) there's an elaborate set up to it, 2) the set up includes setting stuff on fire, 3) it tastes just like Dr Pepper, but gets you buzzed as h*ll!  Unfortunately, in most bars here it's illegal. I should say in ALL bars its illegal, just most of them don't do it, the cool ones still do.

 :D :D :D

Up here those are called Bullsh#$$ers.  Some of the names of the drinks people ask me to make apaul me!  LOL.  We do not flame any more.  Insurance reasons.  But to flame you need alcohol 151 or everclear, or other high alcohol content, or Sugar.
We used to make a cuban drink and would burn the sugar around the rim like a margarita has salt, only this was with sugar.  Gorgeous really.  Gosh I miss the good ole days when you could really have fun as a mixologist!! 

Me?  Just a wee bit of red wine (Pinot Noir, Chianti, Cabernet Sauvignon etc), with a bit of gouda, watching a sunset and I'm just okay dokey!

But if you are into trying drinks, try a Midori Colada
Tropical Lifesavor
Irish Raspberry blended


Nice thought but,
be aware of law suits.  You start listing folks as puppy millers or bad breeders, someone is going to get sued.  More than likely the board allowing it.

Bag balm works, but now I use a non-petroleum based product I make.

You can always make your own if you want! 



Hmm.  Well I think I know which thread it was.   I get home at 1 or 2:30 am and just tried to give a quick hey do this as everyone dealing with situation with this type of breed is told.  I see the thread is not there.  I checked to see if an update regarding a home or decision was decided on.

I haven't a clue if what i said started a storm or not.  Hope not as I really hope rescue in that area was contacted.  They are very good at what they do.

My post wasn't meant as a criticism, meerly the way out safely with the least amount of pain for all involved.

Still worried about it though.  Wish we were able to know what is going to happen.  Now I'm going to worry.


Here is a recipe I make.  Perhaps it could be useful for you.  It combats and clean everything.

1/2 cup of distilled Water (please use distilled)
1 TBS of Vinegar (we use apple cider, you don't have to)
1/4 c aloe vera Gel
1 TBS Calendula oil
1 drop of Lavender Essential Oil

Mix in a sterile container. Sterilize by boiling or wiping out with rubbing alcohol.
Mix water, vinegar...shak e well. Add aloe vera...shake well, add calendual oil and lavender...sha ke well. Use paper towels, cotton balls (these I think are best), or such and wet with the doggie ear concoction and wipe clean. Wipe doggie ears like you are using baby wipes. DO NOT USE ON THE INNER EAR. This is not like an Oticlens that gets squirted into the ear. Think Baby Wipes.

Keep Refridgerated.
Do NOT keep longer than 2 weeks.

Also again, the usual warning. At anytime anyone or any pet can be allergic to anything. Try a test spot first. An inside portion of one ear. Watch for at least two days. Only use at the most...every other day or when needed. You know those wonderful sandy or dusty dirty days!!

Yep, my boys get the treatment! Oticlens once every two weeks, on this three times a week.

Aloe vera will last a year, Calendula oil (infused in olive oil) will last a year, vinegar and such does to. It's when you add water to the equation that it will grow bacteria. So you can buy enough to last a year which is economical, but make it in small amounts and make sure to throw away at two weeks.


P.S.  If you can't do all this, use just the distilled water and vinegar and wipe ears.  This should keep the yeast at bay.  Use every day until cleared, and every other day after that.

I met a woman the other day who had a beautiful German Shepard and when I asked what his name was she actually gave me his AKC name which was some long forgettable name.  I asked her, "Do you say that every time you call him?"  She didn't think that was very funny......

 ;D ;D ;D
You are so bad.

Stick with it.  Normally you have a copy, your breeder has a copy, and they get a copy.  Maybe your breeder has a copy?  Boy, I'd stick to your guns and make them correct it.  It's not just the money, it's the idea this has been done to how many people?

We never registered Bryce with AKC because we found out he had a genetic illness and we wouldn't be able to even trial him.  So we saw no reason.  He is already registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.  Unless we trial or show, we saw no reason to go any further with this. 

Next pup we get though, after hearing all you folks and what you've gone through, we'll definately be very careful.


I am so happy to hear that a shelter is taking pets also.  This has been a serious problem for many women.  The shelter we have here in town cannot or will not accomodate pets. 

I donate soaps and herbal teas to different places.  If the shelter in your area would like donations of nice products for christmas time please let me know how I could contact them.

Also, to Lins, I jsut caught this thread.  How are you doing?  I hope you can bond with those who offer stregnth.  I'm so very sorry you have to go through this.  Sometimes the strength of others we don't even know are our best defense to survive, continue and have the bravery to know we can do it on our own.
Bless you and please take care.  My mother spent much time seeking assistance in dealing with co-dependency, and she was a fantastic counselor (had a Masters in Psychology and family counseling not to mention the years of training in other areas), family social worker and substance abuse counselor.  It can affect any of us at any time.  She was able to support and assist others, but it took years for her to have the strength to help herself.  I hope it does not take as long for you.

Absolutely adorable!  I especially love the one with a rottie on either side!  Gorgeous photo!!

The boys met the grandbabies and we've been having a blast since.  My grandauters are 2 1/2 months and 2 months old.  Bryce is very concerned about the two babies and every so many minutes he jumps up and goes to check the carrier.  Sniffs and makes sure the babies are still doing alright!  Then goes back to sleep!!!
It's so cute!

Oh I love to hear all the names!!

Bryce's is: CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) Seabears Sailors Delight, call name Bryce.

Monty was our sweet rescue we helped rescue from a puppy mill.  He's very special to us also.  He's not Papered, but we call him Monty Pythons Revenge.  Monty for short!!  I mean come on, his name had to be as long as Bryces!!!

We're already working on name three, but we're not quite ready for a pup yet.  Just looking!


Trying to reason first sounds great.

If you don't like the idea of a bat, use a broom.  A broom is a woman's best friend! ;D


We found the cutest bumble bee outfit when bryce was smaller.  Adorable.
It was actually on sale in the toddlers section.  It had a bulb body with four holes and wings and an antenae type hat thing with little balls on the end of the antena.

They make them for larger children so maybe you could find something on sale.  It was cute as anything.
Wish I had pictures. 


I'll vouch for the importance of big tennis balls.  Our breeder told us NO TENNIS BALLS for our Newfie.  Too many Newfies have gotten them lodged in throat and died.

So, we found large one 4 inch and 5 inch.  The boys love them and I'll be getting more!!

They are great!!


Way too cute!!!!

Great pictures!  Look at those legs!!!  And the little kitty is just happy as can be!!
