About Fargo

  • Rank
  1. I like to just call Fargo's snarky smile his "hello Clarice, can you hear the lambs smile"..
  2. We dont give rawhide...to afraid of chemicals used to process them, and the potential for blockages. I rotate antlers, and rubber food stuffable toys to keep mine entertained.
  3. Glad Flint came thru it ok'
  4. Good luck Flint! Fargo was done at 3, once his health was stable enough for the procedure. He wasnt displaying male behavior, but I wanted to be 100% sure that he never passed on his disorder to pups. As for worry...I asked the vet if I could hold his paw. He did fine, a bit groggy for a day, and rather silly looking in his doughnut collar. He was on restricted activity for 7 days, hand walk..no running or jumping..we played alot of puzzle games, and practiced tricks that didnt involve sit or down.
  5. I had to stop fostering for the sanity of Fargo. He was attacked as a juvenile, and now views new dogs as dangerous. Once we work through his problems, I would love to foster again....but on a smaller and more cautious scale. I love this breed, but won't sacrifice my personal dog.
  6. Right on! Everything Maralynn said. Very well said.
  7. Careful what you wish for, my BC failed to thrive as a pup. He had trouble gaining weight...now he weighs a healthy 80 pounds, and we suspect a growth disorder...
  8. Yes! I think Nancy is on to something :-)
  9. Your dogs symptoms are an exact match to Fargo's. Blood work are always disgustingly normal , tick titers are negative, and joint taps show white blood cells. Wandering lameness, feel good.feel bad days. We have even run genetic testing.... Not even a.carrier for any know genetic forward. It is frustrating, but if you like to compare notes, or have our vets compare notes....
  10. I know this is an older thread, but I just had to say thank you!!!!! Signed up for both ;-)
  11. I get mine from Michigan antler art. He is very reasonable, and lists the chews strength on each listing. We buy elk, hard core, and they last about six months of hard chewing daily.
  12. How true with the lack of education and impulse buys. There was a good looking red BC in our store shopping with his owners. The pup was about four months old. The woman sees Fargo laying behind me, and loudly proclaims her dog better not have a coat like his, as that is what the clerk at the puppy store had told her. If that red dog was a smooth coat, Fargo is a Boston terrier. I giggled (can't blow up at the woman the way I really wanted to), and agreed with her, her pup would not have a coat like Fargo's, but a much thicker and longer coat!! She was furious, as clearly, how would I know? N
  13. Sound like the owner of Missy did not plan his trip well. If the terrain was too rough, leave the dog home with a kong, younger hiker?... leave the dog home... storm? again leave the dog home. No effort was made by this person to go get his dog. He left it there in a storm to die, and told authorities he thought it was dead. A man, in his prime, should be able to muscle a dog to saftey. I have no doubt I would never leave my dog's side. He would not leave mine and I would bestow that same gift on him. Poor dog, wish she could take that man to the mountain, remove his shoes and supplies and lea
  14. Check out Nitro's law. It is a group dedicated to making animal cruelty charges a felony.
