Food Discussion & Information / Re: Too much protein

They recommend giant breed dog food just for that reason - it has lower protein 21 - 23%. It is what I feed the girls.

I think a doggie sitter if you have one in your area would be a good idea. That way your pup still gets to be with you. I would also let the sitter come and visit to get to know your dog before your surgery. Best of luck to you and your upcoming surgery. Will keep fingers & paws crossed!

Great Dane Discussions / 11 year old dane only has till 5PM *UPDATE*

I got this email from the lady who I rescued Aurora from so I copying it to anyone who might be able to help. I wish I had room but I live in town and are only permitted to have 2 dogs. Anyway here it is:

hello everyone
i have gotten a very hard email to read.  there were 2 Danes surrendered to a shelter in Kentucky tonight.  the owner demanded that they be put down.  the owner said he could not keep them because he had his parents in his house and the parents were having trouble breathing. 
the dogs are 8 and 11 yrs old.  i can honestly tell you all that these poor dogs do not have a chance.  they are giving them till 5 pm tomorrow and putting them down. now, you will tell me that an 11 yr old dog should be put down. the girl at the surrender desk said that the Dane is so loving that she could not do it and called rescue instead.
the 11 yr old that needs rescue may live one day may live a year. either way, if anyone can find it in their heart to take this poor sole in please let me know. 
we have till 5 pm tomorow

That is such good news. My son who lives in Texas & I in PA was trying to figure out how we could get his dog to my house if he couldn't find someone to care for him while he was in Iraq. I really hope this continues to grow. If you have a big paw there is nothing acceptable for flying them right now. Small dogs can go as carry on on some airlines.

I had 6 cats, all over age 10 when I brought Athena home. I too used a baby gate with a cat door. I put up the gate days before I got the dog so the cats could learn how to use it. I keeps the dogs out of the cat food & litter and give the cats a place to go when they get tired of being drooled on.  ;D It really went much smoother than I would have expected.

Awww.... How very cute they are!

Also welcome and it is every pups mission to get into trouble when it is a holiday weekend. It never seems to fail at our house anyway! Seems like when I'm going away I always have a perscription for one of them when I take them to the kennel.  ::)

Thank goodness it all worked out but I'm sure it was an ordeal for both of you.

OMG! What a little cutie. Welcome and glad you decided to join in. I'm Connie and all the kids are listed below!
