  1. Ohhhhh Finley. He is such a sweet sensitive boy. A little overly sensitive, actually. Quite the submissive wetter. (If you have any advice for that I'd love to hear it.) Then there's the other side of him. The main side. HE IS A NUT. This boys manners can be crazy bad. He's still a pup, and he shows it! He's a regular wild child. He breaks the rules with a smile. Hes one of those, "does this count" dogs. For example: he's not big on lying down. In class I ask him to lie down, His response: take half a step forward and bow his head a bit. Really Finn? Really. I love him to d
  2. This was just the most heart wrenching story. I knew it would be, and waited till today to open the thread. Now, I am at my work desk holding back tears. My pup is only 5 Months old, I just cant imagine the hurt. I am so sorry for your loss. You handled everything with such grace.
  3. That's what I'm saying! How can you shove a needle in a dog (containing the wrong vaccine) without looking at them (when they were just in for an emergency). I was already annoyed that they had me see the woman vet, when I prefer the man. I will continue going there, but I will NOT be seeing her. Dr. Piske is the only reason I will be returning.
  4. Were back at it again This time, they didn't go as far, and it was opposite. Took him in for shots and his eyes were messed up. Vet didn't even notice AND gave him the wrong shot. Safe to say I will not be seeing her again. *sigh*
  5. Well, the vet visit was anticlimactic. She suspects he suffered some sort of head trauma. Both of his eyes checked out perfectly fine. We were instructued to run a panel on him to test for some disorders to be safe. I'll have to do some more research to find out exactly what I'm testing for, because the boyfriend does not pay good attention, and I made it to the vet as they were walking out. So, no real answers as of now. Hopefully everything comes back clear and he was just having a moment. He is EXTREMELY Clumsy, so I guess he could have fallen and hit his head.who knows. I will keep you a
  6. Yep, I'm going to have a few gray hairs from this one. I am so nervous. He is at the vet now, and I am stuck at work for 15 more minutes. I've never dealt with a corneal scratch, but he hasn't been showing any signs of pain. sigh.
  7. I gave a cat to a friend (she was in love with him) they changed the microchip info no problem. I was never notified or anything. I was pretty upset with Home Again. What if he was stolen?!
  8. That looks very similar. The scary thing was that the left eye pupil was so small it looked to not be there at all. That may have distracted me from the fact that the other eye was also dilated. I hope this doesn't become a reoccurring thing like the dog from the post, because it freaks me out. He looks possessed with no pupil. I really wish I would have thought to take a picture before it started to go back to normal. Today is creeping on, I am ready to get my baby to the vet.
  9. Last night I put Finn in his crate and went to pick up dinner. We were back home in 20-30 minutes. We set the food down and put some things away, then I let him out of his crate. He was patiently waiting as usual. Finley looked up at me and made eye contact, and I almost screamed. His left pupil appeared to be GONE. With a blue eyed pup, this made him look ghostly. His right eye was completely normal (at least, it looked normal) and his left pupil was constricted to a pin point. I called the emergency vet, and consulted Dr. Google. Everything points to: Head trauma - How? He was i
  10. It's great to hear the encouragement! He is such a fantastic puppy, we just get tired of bleeding. He has def gotten my nipples a few times! Not a great feeling. Thanks for all the imput! I will just be so happy when all this biting is over. I miss my little suckling puppy with no teeth!
  11. Finley is now just under 12 weeks. He is turning out to be an amazing dog. With that being said, I'm struggling a bit with his biting. He started with the ankle biting, which has phased out for the most part, but I am really struggling with the hand/ arm biting. He's more than just mouthy, he really wants to play rough. This behavior is pretty constant throughout the day, any time he gets on our level he starts with the biting. Now, I have been working on it and he clearly understands that's the behavior I am correcting, but he "argues" with me and try's to find ways around the rules. (B
  12. Thanks! I guess I'm just being a little over protective. I appreciate all the advice! We are in a county-like city in Va, near Norfolk. So there's not much choice to avoiding streets. As far as keeping my dogs off the road previously, I had some pretty small dogs who would wait for me to carry them across the street(spoiled brats, I know). Our little Tibetan Terrier was quite the fence jumper, luckily he never stepped into the road alone. I am hoping my BC will be interested in doing obedience, that and therapy work is my main plan for him. Maybe I should trust in my training skills a
  13. Hello! I am brand new to the boards (though I have been reading up while waiting for validation for around a month) I am bringing home my first BC pup in about a week and a half. After reading a post about a pup running into the road, my head really started spinning. I had always had a strict no paws on the road policy with my dogs growing up, so if they ever got away from me they would be less likely to step in the street. Now, we have moved into a house with a wonderful yard, but no sidewalks. I also happen to have cranky neighbors who get angry if I step on their grass. So, my que
