  1. That is Awesome. She is so cute. Glad to hear that things are better. So hard when our fur babies are not feeling at the top of the chart. Thank you for keeping us posted. Teri
  2. What an awesome update. It is amazing how well he figured out what was going on and reacted. We never want our dogs to have to protect us but for me it would give me great comfort to know Jade would if the situation arose. I love the pictures from yesterday. Sometimes cats don't really know they are cats and supposed to hate the water. Thank you for posting!
  3. Glad that surgery is not needed immediately and maybe never...that is what I will be wishing for you and her. Also glad that you have a vet you can feel comfortable with and is willing to seek out others that have more experience. Those vets are hard to come by, at least in my experience.
  4. Chris so sorry that you and Gabe had this experience but really glad to see and hear that he is recovering pretty well.
  5. I am so excited for Chance! He is beautiful in my eyes. You did an amazing job on his coat...and a lot of work. Will keep following to see his progress. Rooting for him to find the perfect home.
  6. Oh my gosh....look at how happy he is. Lots of hoping coming your way that he does well with your friend and her dogs and that finding a new loving home comes quickly for both of you. Thank you for helping him. Teri
  7. I am not saying that they will....just makes me wonder that if they would this to a helpless animal, what about small children that are also helpless? How do we know they aren't doing it to children? How much abuse goes on in the home that is never talked about? Do they do this because they can? I don't know. And maybe I am too much "heart" about animals being deliberately hurt. And that is what I am talking about. Deliberately torturing or hurting an animal. I will bow out of the conversation because I think that what I am wanting for the laws has nothing to do with what this conversation has turned into. Thanks for listening. Teri
  8. Debbie. That is true. The laws that I want strengthened are the laws pertaining to physical abuse of an animal such as cutting off it's nose, wrapping duct tape around it's nose and mouth for two days, starving them so that the only weight they carry is the bone and organ weight, putting it in a crate and throwing it in a ditch on the side of the road,and if you leave a dog tied up outside with no water, no food in 100 plus degree weather then you are abusing the animal. Sorry. I don't want laws to say you can't leave your dog in your car with air conditioning, I don't want laws that say you can't chain your animal outside for short periods (even thought I totally disagree with chaining at all). I want the perpetrator that is physically abusive to have the same treatment he gave that living breathing mammal. Because that very same person, IMO would be willing to do the same thing to a small child that didn't do their bidding. That's what I want changed.
  9. Glad things are going so well with Louie.
  10. D'Elle, would you care if I posted this to my FB account. In Iowa we are fighting really hard to get the laws changed and hopefully this would be picked up by some of those and passed around as well.
  11. Oh my gosh! That is freaky scary. I can't imagine Jade and myself in a situation like that. As others have said, try to take a picture, report her, whatever it takes. This is exactly why Jade and I could never go to a dog park or even a heavily traveled trail to walk on, which makes me sad. And Gentle Lake I love love love your saying it made me have a true belly laugh. There is so much truth in it. I have owned or had dogs my whole life and have no mentality that I am in expert in any part of owning a dog. and yep Breathe!
  12. Awesome for Chance. Thank you for taking on the challenge to find him a new home. He looks adorable. Best of luck. Will keep checking in to see how things are progressing.
  13. Oh I agree. I don't like choke chains. I know that they used to be used for training(many years a trainer had us use one of the a boxer...only when we were training) but it still made me uncomfortable. I am so glad she is doing better and you too. Possibly if your stress level was down she sensed that and felt she could calm down some.
  14. Also, with Jade, she does exactly the same thing...and she isn't by herself everyday. I am trying to work on when I come through the door, to turn my back on her and ignore her until she settles down so she can actually hear what i am saying to her. When she sits, I speak really calmly to her and give her a treat. If she starts jumping again I will turn my back and ignore her. She is getting better and I don't want to scold her for being excited to see me so I am trying different things. I have had some advice from other posters which has been really beneficial for me. Also, is it possible to give her a really long rope and let her run some or is she just so strong that she would pull you down when she got to the end? I am so sorry about your little chi.
