  1. Last weekend at practice, Angel surprised me!!! She ran the full flyball course. I was so proud of her. And we couldn't have done it without Ursuls! Thanks Urs. We are looking forward to running all three dogs this year at tournaments. That is going to a handful, but I am so exicted to do it!
  2. I think that Frontline shouldn't cause diarrhea. In seven years of being a vet tech I have never heard of it. My dogs are on Nature's Logic and doing great on it. There are probiotics in the food and digestive enzymes also montmorillonite. My maltese used to eat her stool and she doesn't now, they have nice bm's and don't have gas. I know that there are ton's of dog foods out there it can be so confusing, just do your research. The bland diet idea is great. I always recommend it to clients. You can try that if it clears up slowly switch her back to her kibble. Have you thought about trying a raw diet with her?
  3. Lexi our Maltese does quite well in Flyball. She runs about 7.0 but she loves it. She is the fastest Maltese in U-fli at the moment. I find that little enjoy the sport as much as the big dogs, they just get tired quicker.
  4. Congrats on the great weekend and on your new adoption. Grace sounds like she is a flyball addict now. You go girl!
  5. I am sorry to hear about your pup. Keep us updated.
  6. We were supposed to go this weekend but I had a VERY VERY hard day at work on saturday, and sunday morning I felt like you know what. I hope you all had fun.
  7. We tried it because they were giving it out for free. The dogs liked it but I wouldn't feed it. I have read the website and I agree. I would go with a High quality kibble, then feed raw a few times a week. That's what we do sometimes.
  8. Angel chose us. We were in Madera,ca at a flyball tournament with Moorea and Lexi. Mark and I had just gone through a rough patch with losing a baby, I was 5 months pregnant. It had happened a few weeks before we got Angel. We weren't looking for another dog. We had gone to Walmart to get some supplies, and there she was with her broken leg. We caught her and that was that I knew that she was ours. I had a feeling she came to us for a reason. It gave me something else to think about besides our horrible loss. I am now on the Dark side as we call it on our team. She is a great dog, and we love her very much. And so does our baby girl who is almost 5 months old.
  9. Moorea our boxer loves hers! We don't race without them. We have to get another pair for our BC soon. Thanks for a great product.
  10. As long as her pup didn't have a BM in your yard, I wouldn't be to worried. How old is your dog? It sounds like she is just a year old or so. I think she should be ok.
  11. We use Superfuel and Go Dog. It seems to help our dogs. But I have known some dogs to have blowouts on this, mine don't. www.an-nat.com
  12. Wow this is really interesting. My boxer gets hot really easy. Do you consider chicken a cool food?
  13. Aww gunner looks great Urs. Missed you guys this weekend. Looks like you had fun.
  14. Angel competes in Splash Dogs. She loves it sooooooo much. It is a great sport to be involved in. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as we do.
  15. Our boxer was bitten by a spider a few months ago. We live somewhat in the hills. That evening she started vomiting and had some swelling around her face. I gave her some Benadryl. Hoping that would help. It didn't so I took her to work with me (I work as a vet tech) the next day. She had hundreds of hives all over her body. My boss thought it was Cancer because it spread so quickly. He took biopsies and they came back a arthropod cells. She lost all the hair on her head and some of her face. I have attached a picture. She was so sick wouldn't eat anything. Not even baby food. We had to feed her a product called Renal Care. That is all she would lap up. Moorea was on 2 types of Antibiotics, Steroids and Benadryl. So know we have to keep benadryl and steroids on hand at all times just in case. She is much better now and her hair has grown back.
  16. That is a neat idea. My dogs stay pretty close to me on hikes. I would like to see it in person before buying it though.
  17. I am glad that you are interested in such a great sport. I have 3 dogs at the moment my boxer and maltese compete. My BC is in trainning. We have been in flyball for about 3 years, and we have loved it ever since. Your pup sounds like a quick learner, can't wait until she is ready to run in tournament. That may take some time though. It took our Boxer 8 months to learn Flyball, but every dog is different. As far as the crates, I use the soft crates while we are at practice and the wire kennels at home and at tournaments. At night if I can't find my dogs they are in their crates sleeping, they love them. They like the den feel of it. I am glad that Seek likes her kennel, that is always a good thing. Good Luck with Flyball and crate training. Take a look at the flyball forum, you can get all your questions answered there. Here is the website Flyball Forum
  18. I have worked as a vet tech for 6 years now. In this field you don't make a lot of money but it is worth putting in the long hours, and hard work. I always tell people that you don't get to play with puppies and kittens all day, you get yourself into some gross stuff. Yes, you get to assist the veterinarians in suregery, with appts. Pretty much their whole day. I love my job and wouldn't change it for the world. Sometimes you get tired of the clients, but seeing their pets get better is worth it. You can also specialize in certain areas too, like denistry, suregery, emergency medicine, etc. I personally like emergency medicine. The adreneline is awesome. Hope all goes well for you.

  22. We just got back from the Splash Dogs Competition..... And Angel jumped. She only went about 6 feet but she did it and loved it. We are so proud of her. Here is a picture and a video. http://s220.photobucket.com/albums/dd126/r...nt=MOV00659.flv
  23. We are so excited. This weekend in San Mateo,ca there is a International Sportsman Expo, and there is a Splash Dogs competitiion. Angel, my husband and I will be going. He can't wait to jump her. I will photos while we are there and post them when we get back. I hope she does well.
  24. Congrats, Hope there is many more races to come.
