Hi guys ... been a while ...
« on: June 13, 2008, 01:01:56 am »
Hope everyone and their big paws are happy and healthy.

I've been very busy raising Cody. She is now 62 pounds of pure muscle and every bit as sweet. We went through months of diarhea (sp?). Part of it was Giardia but not all of it. I had her on Eagle Pack for large breed puppies thinking that it was a good food for her. After all, many of the dobie breeders use that brand of food. My vet and I changed her food to ID prescription and after the FIRST CUP she had hard poop. We were dancing in the street. She has calmed down since then. We are going to obedience classes and she is learning quickly.

Here are a couple of recent pictures of her. She is now 8 months but these pictures were made at 5 months.

It was such a relief to see solid poop. I just feel so bad that it went on as long as it did.

Jack is sooooo cute. How old is he?

Gage is a HUNK!!! Only 10 months old? He looks huge in the picture! How much does he weigh and how much are you feeding him?

And welcome to the forum.

Thank you. It was a nightmare. Poor girl. She makes decently hard little poops now that don't stink. :^)

Gage is 111 lbs as of last week, he is getting neutered pretty soon, so I will have a new weight then.  He eats about 6 cups of food a day.

I also have 2 Shiba Inu:
Ruffian, who is 13 almost:


And Tonka, who is 11 almost:

Thank you so much. She is feeling better and you can tell it. She has calmed down quite a bit. We're still working on obedience and will for a long time I guess. But she is smart. She is very strong willed and that is something that we have to work on continually as well. But she is very loving and has a very sweet personality.

Your pups are adorable. I can't imagine a 10 month old at 111 pounds! That is a lot of puppy! And he only eats 6 cups of food a day? Amazing! Cody eats 4 to 5 cups a day. She is just over 60 pounds but she has some catching up to do. The food she was on before just went straight through her. She's putting on some weight now. I'm going to have to watch her so that she does not gain too much!
