Medical Conditions & Diseases / Giardia AND puppy vaginits
« on: February 07, 2008, 12:57:19 pm »
I have a great dane puppy (15 weeks today) that has Giardia, either for the 2nd time, or it never went away with 1st round of treatment.  She is fairly lethargic and not gaining weight properly, and just simply "not herself."  Yes, she has been to the vet's twice now.  On top of that, she has puppy vaginitis. Poor little girl.  Gosh, I could just cry that she is so miserable. (in addition to allergies...)

Has anyone else out there gone thru this with their big paw?

Well, our little princess puppy runs around a whole bunch and then will suddenly decide the snow is just to cold or something. Silly girl.  We have a fleece jacket for her that works for a puppy, and will get a "real" coat when she's done growing so she doesn't feel so cold.

Anyhow, we still need to get boots for when we go for longer snowshoeing hikes, I think.

I have a great dane puppy, and am trying to get her used to boots for going in the snow.  I just bought some cheaper ones for the moment, just to practice.  We would like to take her to the snow with us before long, tho, and need some boots to protect her feet. 

Is it possible to keep the boots on in snow? Anyone have any luck with this? If so, which kind of boots do you use?

Hi Terri,

I haven't weighed Behr yet this week.  Maybe I can remember to do that tomorrow.  She turned 10 weeks on Friday.  I know that at 9 weeks she weighed 25 lbs, so she's probably around 28-29 now.  I haven't ever had a Dobie, but it sounds like Cody is pretty big for a Dobie.  Is that right?  She really is very pretty, and has such a cute look on her face in the photo  :)

The breeder we got Behr from made an entire notebook of instructions for all her puppy buyers, complete with pedigrees and photos from birth up.  Anyhow, the night we brought her home, we read the directions for feeding her.  It told us how to make her food, and that we should only give her 10 min. to eat, and then take the food away (to encourage her to eat all at once).  So, we set the timer for 10 min. and put her food down on the floor for her.  She was done in 2 1/2 min.  We laughed it off, saying it was just because she got dinner later than normal.  Turns out that she is nuts about dinner time (and breakfast for that matter)and we certainly don't need a timer with her! (my last dane acted like it was a chore to eat)  She knows which cabinet has her food in it, and around time to eat she goes over to it and cries.  When we are fixing her food, she barks and acts crazy.  You'd think we were starving her or something. (we aren't!)

She has her "wild dog" routine where she drags every toy out of her toy box and races around the house with them.  She loves ivy for some reason and goes nuts pouncing in it and rolling in it. I keep trying to catch pictures of it for her blog, but she's always too close to me.  She makes silly noises ALL night long in her sleep and is quite vocal.  She barks at herself in the window and tries to play with the "puppy in the mirror" (her).  We are enjoying having a puppy so much, even tho we are still getting up with her at night and potty training her. She did sleep 6 hrs last night, and we're hoping we are going to keep getting that kind of sleep out of her now.  We've only had her 9 days now, and one of them was spent driving home with her.

Again, your pup is beautiful and sounds like a lot of fun.  Enjoy her while she's young  :)

Just curious if anybody else helps their dogs blog (keep a weblog)just for fun?  My pup started one "accidentally", and then it just kept going.  The breeder she came from requested that all puppy buyers keep a webpage with photo updates of the puppies so she could watch the progress. We had a free page with Yahoo, and then Yahoo decided to stop hosting.  Then we got a blog, since that's free anyhow.

Then somehow, as a joke to family, my pup (Behr) started "writing comments" to post, with mom's help of course, since she doesn't type well yet ;D  It just kind of grew from there.

SO, I was wondering if anyone else out there with some Big Paws in the home has a "dog blog" as well.  I thought it would be fun to start a collection of them to read maybe.

Behr is a 10 week old dane puppy, by the way

Behr is a female great dane puppy.  In this photo she is 9 weeks old (she is 10 weeks today).  Behr means "little bear", which is certainly appropriate for her little personality right now.  That's not meant in a mean way, she is extremely bold and playful.  I've watched bears in the wild a lot, and the name seemed to fit.

Wow!  Cody is beautiful!  My last dane was named Cody, so the name touches a warm spot in my heart and makes me smile.

This is my first New Years and I'm loving it!  Hope everyone has a great day kicking back with their families.  As for me, I think I'll chase a bunch of leaves because it's windy outside, and then I'll run around my new house and play with all of my new toys.

I'm not only new on the board, I'm new to this world :) My name is Behr, (or the Behr Babe) and I'm almost 8 weeks old now.  I get to come home with my human mom and dad next week (right after Christmas).  I'm SO excited! I just wanted to join the discussion and talk with others who are danes and are on this board.

I even have my own blog already.  Stop by and visit anytime.

I won't have a photo of my all by myself until I move in to my new home next week, sorry.

love, Behr  :)
