  2. Nancy -- just now reading this. How absolutely scary, but coming on late, I saved myself the anguish of hoping that she'd be OK, since your scary story has a happy ending. I've had two dogs with obstructions. One, Tam, now an old geezer, a dog who never stooped to play with toys, gulped down a portion of a rubber ball from a field that had just been mowed. 3 weeks later, messing around with different treatments, Tam lost a lot of weight, quickly, and his just hung on him in folds. I took him to another vet, who opened him up and removed 18 inches of necrotic bowel and half a small rubb
  3. I was there for the Supreme this year. Will post pics when I'm done uploading them.
  4. All the best to you Bustopher. What else can I say except that I'll keep you in my prayers. Glad you're back.
  5. I am cancelling the appointment to put down Tam. He's not ready. I'll know when he's ready. I'm hoping he'll make a come back like Sligo. We'll wait and see. One of my concerns was is that I'm leaving the country for the first half of September, and I don't want any of my dogs to die on anyone's watch but mine. Right now he appears to be functional and fighting and as long as Tam --- or any of my dogs have the fight in them to live, I'll fight right along side of him. And he'll be with my best friend who he's known for years, so I feel a lot better. Thank you all. I have 4 seniors
  6. That this topic was brought up at this time for me is sort of a relief. I'm going through the same thing now. Tam will be 15 in October. He has really aged the last year. He is almost entirely deaf, sight is not good and senility is setting in, but he still loved to eat and run after Joe, a dog he chose as the one to follow. I came home after work this week. Tam was Tam in the morning, but something happened during the day while I was at work. I'd say a stroke, maybe idiopathic vestibular syndrome, but he could not stand and staggered around like a drunken sailor. He had the presence o
  7. I've seen one rottie years ago who appeared to be a "natural". I don't know anything about the training center shown here or their methods, but I have seen some clips of dogs, non-border collies trained by Tony McCallum which impressed me. I read that he likes to start other breeds besides border collies on livestock. The extent of this interest, I don't know, but here he with with his boerboel, another breed I kinda like, on cattle.
  8. I had to throw out that hideous rusted old thing when Sea wasn't looking. She put the bowl down for a minute to say "Hey. We'll have none of that sort of thing around here!"
  9. I have a little bit of a border collie named Sea. Sea collects feeding bowls if I don't pick them up after feeding quick enough. She's always got a metal feeding bowl in her mouth, whether she's running, playing. If she joins the other border collies in a running around, she makes sure she has a bowl in her mouth, growling and vocalizing the entire time. She's discovered the versatility of feeding bowls --- they can be stacked! so when I crate her, it's always with 2 or 3 empty feeding bowls because she stacks them and unstacks them just so she can stack them again, when she's bored. Qui
  10. OK, I'm not quite ready to believe what I think I'm seeing, but so far, only with the DAP collar, it appears that the edge has been taken off Fletcher's anxiety. It's only been a couple of days, but he's not barking now in situations where he would have been barking before..... Only a couple of days so I'm not ready to go over the moon with joy that something this simple could be working???? We'll be having thunderstorms roll through here for the next couple of days. I haven't had a chance to get the meds yet, so these next few days could be tough, so wish us luck. Overall, I'm hop
  11. And so I took Fletchie in and had a check up done on him and here is what we'll be trying for now. He'll be wearing a DAP collar. I have a prescription for alprazolam to use during T-storms, although my vet said according to studies, it's best to try it on him before a t-storm rolls around. I need to be home with him and monitor his response to the medication -- which should be nothing or mild sedation. If that's what I observe, then when a thunderstorm rolls through, I'll give him another dose. On an "as needed" basis. Also what she suggested that I could give him on a daily basis,
  12. http://sacramento.cbslocal.com/2011/06/25/teen-arrested-for-cattle-drive-hit-and-run/ I don't know if this link was posted earlier, but it was before they caught the creep. As seriously hurt as Maggie was, here they say they had her up and walking and when she saw a pick up truck, she was ready to go back to work, bless her heart. She's got a nobility and probably work ethic about her that the creep who did this will never have.
  13. So has the entire FB group been deleted then? Or am I blocked? Maybe all these submissions of unstacked dogs were too much for the group. I'll bet that group was chuggin' along just fine until members of these boards got wind of it.
  14. And I'm totally ignorant about color genetics. FWIW
  15. More of one of the brindled pups. This is Satchmo: And Satch is certainly expressive if nothing else:
