Group Discussions & Photos / Who needs the park...

when you have this in your back yard...
This is the woods on our property. We have trails cut through it for walking and for driving the golf cart on. The dogs love going out there and exploring.
You can see the teepee my hubby and the kids are building in the background:

In this pic. Thorn was trying to play...Morgie is a whimp and was laying flat to the ground...LMAO:

in this shot you can barely see the kids playing soccer in the back ground.

Wolfhound Discussions & Pictures / Morgayne and her buddy
« on: August 25, 2007, 04:39:52 pm »
My computer sits in a small cubby in the livingroom (my cave). Morgayne likes to come lay at my feet when I am back here. I also have a cat bed behing the recliner that sits in part of the archway to my "cave". Well our kitten sleeps there most of the time. This is what I saw when I looked down. LOL

LMAO they layed there like that for over an hour. The kitten (Cloe) came to us last Thanksgiving, her mom dumped her at a neighbors house, she was tiny and I had to handfeed her. I think she thinks she is a dog more than a cat. She plays with Morgayne all the time. She will roll on her back and Morgayne pushes her around with her nose. LOL
Here is one more of Morgie...she is a goofy pup. She'll be 7 months in 2 days.

Anything Non-Dog Related / I need to get out of this funk
« on: August 24, 2007, 03:04:51 pm »
I can hardly stand it. I am sick of things going wrong. Our min-pin Cookie went to her foster home yesterday. The lady is a foster for a min-pin rescue. Well now I am kicking myself. She seemed nice...a bit strange but nice. I took Miss Cookie, a big new bed, vet records, leash, blankets, etc. with me to give to her. Well we walked to her van, it was NASTY. The door opened and it smelled like dogs had been peeing in it for months!!! There were old clothes piled on the floor (there were no seats in the back of the van just the 2 in the front), and there were old nasty dirty dog beds on top of the clothes. I told myself, she volunteers for "citizens for humane action" and the rescue, she may use the van to transport etc...
Now I keep thinking what if her house is the same way??? She said she has 8 min-pins there, and that at night and when she is at work they are I am thinking is that better than here??? I re-homed her because she kept getting beat up by our other min-pin...and she is older and has stitches and things that a regular person might not tend to. I e-mailed the head rescue lady that I talked to first...told her my concerns, asked if they do home inspections on their fosters...etc.


Anything Non-Dog Related / Anyone do canning?
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:53:52 pm »
I canned tomatoes for the first time last week. The kids and I went to my mom's and we all did it. We had a little assembly line set up. We did about 13 quarts, and we will have to do it again in a few days.
So today I decided to can some other stuff. I did 3 pints of jalepenos, and 3 pints of hot banana peppers. I should have worn gloves, my hands are on FIRE!!!!!  I also made some mango/peach/habenaro salsa. I didn't can any of it yet, I wanted to make a batch to make sure it was good. I'll can some tomorrow probably.

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / stressed about dogs
« on: August 21, 2007, 05:50:26 am »
I have been so depressed this week. For those that don't know we have 2 little paws. Cookie a 7ish year old min-pin that we rescued about 2 years ago, and Dixie a 5 year old min-pin/Jack russel mix we have had since a puppy. Well They have always gotten along pretty well. But lately they have been spending 24/7 together whether it is out in the pen or sleepin g in a crate. i think they are sick of each other.
Well first off. Cookie got attacked about 2 months ago by a GSD, it was just a skin rip, several stitches and some anti biotics. She was good. Then her and Dixie got into 2 different times. Dixie called right off..Cookie kept jumping Dixie even though she was getting her a$$ kicked. So we have kept them seperated. I decided to look for a home for Cookie. She would be the PERFECT lap dog for an older person.
  Well the other day Dixie was on leash, Cookie off. Morgayne was pestering Cookie. Cookie decided to run to Dixie and attack her. Dixie beat the crap out of her. Tore her back leg open through the muscle. Looks like hamburger. So off to the vet after hours... stitches, antibiotics, she is healing nicely. Sooo now she has to go. I have found a min-pin rescue that will take her. She will go into a foster home probably this week. It is best for her...but I feel like a failure.


   Then to top that off still no home for Beau, he needs a home where he can be loved. His heartworm treatments are done, I have been working with him. He is such a sweet boy and will be a great pet. I have even tried Collie and Saint rescues. They don't even answer my e-mails. He has to find a home before winter. He is living outside because of Thorn, and because he jumped on one of my bird cages (eeek!!). He has a doghouse, but he does not need to be out during the winter. Bleck I didn't think it would be so hard to find him a home. He is so beautiful.

Groans, Gripes, Brags & Boasts / I need to vent!

I have been looking at rescues etc. for a female dane... just keeping an eye out. Well anyway I found one that is yanking my heartstrings, she is less than a year and has had a very rough start at life. The funny thing is she could be a twin of my Sweet Tisha. Well..she is in another state, but my friend at the local Humane society makes trips there with the rescue wagon every so often, and she could bring her back...anyway I think the woman has ruled me out because I sent her pics. of Tisha and said I couldn't believe how much they looked alike. She started in with "I hope you aren't trying to replace 2 dogs are the smae" WTF??? I am not 3...I want to adopt a dog in need rather than buy a pup.

I look at the local dane rescues and they say " a fence attached to the house so that the dog exits into it is required"?? again WTH??? I live on 4+ acres!!! I am not fencing  around my house. I have 2 kennel areas if I need to use them but my dogs are with me either inside or outside. Never lost a dog....I guess they are better off shoved out in a yard all day, or staying in the VERY crowded shelters than living in the country being spoiled!!!!! Oh and the one rescue says they WILL NOT adopt a dog into a house with kids under 10 years old!!! I guess it is off to the puppy mill/BYB I go.....

Then I get on Craigslist tonight. someone in Columbus has a 2 year old dane female (merle) she is getting rid of her because she is pregnant and no vet will cut the dogs tail off for her!!!! WTH!!!!!!! She already has 4 kids 10, 8 , and 4 years old. What the h*ll does she think chopping a 2 year old dogs tail off is going to do????

I am sick of people today....

I thought this picture was too cute, I had to share. My 5 year old son Brennon, with almost 6 month old Morgayne. She isn't supposed to be a couch dog....but look at that face. LOL

My husband gives me a hard time because she acts like a Yorkie...she is sooo prissy and girly.
