  1. Thank you! She is certainly a looker Yes I have definitely mentioned it to the vet. She has run about as much as she can think of (including heart worm). All of her vitals check out just fine and there is nothing that seems askew. We just did our check up heart worm test last month and it came back clean. In terms of heat she is doing a bit better. It is supposed to be miserable next week so that will be the true test. But she is figuring out that water is okay (though not in hose form or in bath form). I also got her a pressure activated cooling mat which she is highly suspicious o
  2. This is the only one it will let me upload for some reason. Her back paws have the same marking as her front paws. She's a big girl! She stands about 1 1/2 feet high at her shoulders. Her back (from the back of her neck to the beginning of her tail) is almost 2 feet in length. She weighs 58 lbs.
  3. Good to know on the treat suggestions and giardia. We just came back from a weeks of hiking in Montana so I will get her checked for that. We do already have a few pup friends she loves and is completely comfortable with! I have had them come to our house to play with her and then we have gone to her house to play as well. It does help with her meeting new people for sure! Pics to come in a minute. I've been struggling with the uploader for the past 20 minutes.
  4. Oh awesome! Thanks for the recipe, that will work great. Good to know on the life jacket. We will have to see if she learns to swim next week when it gets really hot.
  5. Thanks for the tips! My vet insisted on doing a full blood work up when I brought her in for a "shelter check" after I first adopted her. She said she has seen a lot of things come up in dogs brought up from KY so we went through all of that and everything checked out fine. We've been back a few times for various odds and ends and the vet has stayed pretty up to date. We did a blood work test last time and everything checked out well. Thanks for the advice on the flirt pole! I will give that a shot and see. She does like watching fast moving objects; she just doesn't chase or do much in
  6. Thanks for the thoughts! I adopted her in January of this year. In terms of her background: She was a little under 1 year old when she was picked up in Kentucky and thrown into a shelter. A rescue organization from MN that brings all their dogs up from the south found her and decided to bring her up for adoption because she was up for being euthanized in the near future. When she was found in Kentucky she actually was micro-chipped with information. However all of the owner's contact information was invalid. She is not hand or foot shy, but completely people shy. She likes other d
  7. Hey everyone, I have a rescue BC Mix (we think bc/aussie) named Kaze. She is about 1 year and 8 months old and probably the laziest and most uninterested dog I have ever met! She will run with me for about 3 blocks but then she gives up and would rather walk instead. I've taken her hiking and she does fine but she gets bored after a while. She is also not very into toys, bones, or food toys. She will lick her soft plush toys with squeakers and then line them up in her bed around the edges. She doesn't like fetch either! It took her over a week to start chewing on a cow ri
  8. Thanks everyone for all of the advice! We have finally succeeded. She figured out wading is fun. Not into swimming, but she at least if figuring things out. Dog ice cream starts next week!
  9. I've been looking for the ice cream all over the place and haven't been able to find it. But I will definitely try some yogurt and see if that helps at all!
  10. Thanks for the tips everyone! A few follow ups and clarifications on my part as well as her background. This may help a little bit more! Kaze is a rescue who was found micro-chipped and very nervous in Kentucky. The info on her chip was already invalid when they checked it and tried to reach out to the owners over the course of a month without success. When I first got her in January she would not leave my bedroom, was afraid of long leashes (more than 6 feet), and is still very wary of men she doesn't know or who have deep voices. My vet says she is one of the few percent
  11. Hi everyone! I have a Border Aussie that is 18-ish months and a rescue. She is a lovely lady but she is having some issues with the Midwest heat in MN. She always seems a little distressed over the heat. I have a list of everything I have been doing below, but I am not sure if I can be doing anything else to help her. She does not sit outside for extended periods of time and she spends a lot of the day at work with me in the air condition with a cool tile floor. I know people recommend not to shave and I don't want to do that. But would it be helpful to trim her a little bit at all
