  1. Sending good wishes and vibes your way, Paula. Regards, Deb
  2. Nancy, So very sorry to hear about Kit's scary health problems. We're sending you positive vibes and thinking about you. Hang in there! Regards, Deb
  3. Oh Mary, so sorry to hear about poor Ollie's troubles. Sending get well wishes from snowy and cold Utah. Wishing you the best. Regards, Deb
  4. Sorry to hear about Skip, Linda. It just tears me up to hear them cough so much. I hope he gets over it soon. I'm glad that Tucker is feeling better, though. I have a 13 yr. old foster dog, Boots, who is battling a terrible case of kennel cough at the moment and even after 5 days on doxy has gotten steadily worse and won't eat or drink (despite many tempting treats, fluids, etc.) This morning I finally had to take her to the ER vet and ask for Clavamox and Baytril and have sub-q fluids. I'm crossing my fingers that this will help the poor dear out. Hang in there! Regards, Deb
  5. Way to go, Olivia! I'm pulling for the little ones. They are both adorable and are obviously getting great care. Good luck and improved immune systems. Regards, Deb
  6. Jan, I'm really looking forward to seeing you again. Give my best wishes to Vivian!
  7. Erin, I'm so sorry to hear about poor Maggie! What a sad, sad thing. Your tribute to your girl was lovely and brought tears to my eyes. Condolences on your loss. Regards, Deb
  8. Only two weeks until Soldier Hollow Sheepdog Trials!! Hurray! Just checking in to see who will be attending this year. It's always fun to meet the folks that you only "see" via the internet and I've been fortunate enough to meet several of the great folks from this Board in years past. Western Border Collie Rescue will be having a booth at the event again this year and so I will be up at the venue for 5 days. I'm hopeful that I will actually get to see some of the competition this year, instead of just manning the booth or wrangling dogs (although I believe we will have a litter of 12 puppies rotating through our booth, so puppy wrangling is definitely on the agenda). The group will also be heading straight to Meeker from Soldier Hollow so that will be exciting. I can't make the Meeker run, unfortunately, but maybe next year I'll just take the entire week and do both. Regards, Deb
  9. I have a colleague who is moving from Utah back to Georgia. She has been pondering adopting a Border Collie for several years and is ready to start looking in earnest once she gets back to GA. I told her that I would ask for your expertise in helping her find a reputable Border Collie rescue in that general vicinity, so recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Hi skiba, Where are you going to go camping? A lot of what you might need, depends on the location. However, the 'skeeters are just coming out in most of the state, so make sure your dog is on heartworm preventative. We do a lot of camping, but haven't had too much problem with ticks (although I do a skin check every night on both dogs if we are in a wooded area and especially around sagebrush). The only place we've had issue with snakes, is out in the West Desert. Camping with dogs is great fun -- I hope you have a fun. Regards, Deb
  11. Hey, it doesn't hurt to windowshop. If the dog hits the right chord with you great - if not, nothing lost. Good luck.
  12. Both dogs have collars on, inside the house and out. The only exception is when I put them in their outdoor kennel or a crate, and then I fasten the collars to the outside of the kennel until I take the dogs out. They jingle-jangle, too - ID and vaccination tags. They are both microchipped (in fact, Rusty is double microchipped with both U.S. and Canadian chips, because he was a Canadog in his younger years), but a visual ID tag can save a lot of heartache and stress. The vaccination tags are required by the County I live in. I also collar and tag any rescue dog I pull, transport or foster as soon as I get them and the tags they wear include any vaccination tags they have and an ID tag with the WBCR's name, address and phone number on it. We microchip, but it sometimes takes a little while to get that done.
  13. Very sorry to hear about poor Zipper's health problems. It's hard to watch the ones you love suffer. I had a dog that developed a seizure problem in his later years and we were very fortunate that the drugs were able to help. As others have mentioned, if you can afford it a second opinion might not be a bad idea. A combination of anti-seizure medication often works better than just one med (are you using Phenobarbitol?). Wishing you good luck and well wishes.
  14. Congratulations on ten great years together! (And many more.) Regards, Deb
  15. Kris, I saw your news with sadness. I'm so sorry about Jazz. He knows how much he was loved. Regards, Deb
