Yeah, she loves me and I love her. It's a huge adjustment for her not having another dog and my exgf and her daughters around. I've had quite a few dogs over the course of my life and have never experienced this sort of behavior before and am not exactly sure it is healthy, you know? And having another animal attached at the hip is a little overwhelming and frustrating.

If I am sitting down and she is laying down asleep, I can't get up and do anything without her getting up and tagging along. Heck, sometimes she jumps up if I even move in the seat. It was sort of sweet at first, but jebus it's getting ridiculous.
I know what you mean. The foster we have does that. I've stepped on her foot because I didn't see her when I turned around. She likes to pass me on the outside then turn in front of me and stop. It's getting better with less acknowledgement. I think my reactions were being seen as reinforcement.

So, can you get another dog for her? She's lonely and looking for the only attention that she can get. That's from you. She doesn't have anybody but you

I had not considered this. I need to not react or fuss and see what changes.

It would be a solution but probably not the best idea for a lot of reasons. I really don't have the time, energy and $ to commit to a 2nd dog right now. She does get play dates with my ex's dog occasionally, and that helps.

Took our 11yr old Kobe to a Cardiologist yesterday's I get a echocardiogram. Looks like our vet saved his life by prescribing the correct medication for his congestive heart failure. We learned from the Cardiologist that with medication Kobe can live a few more years. We expected the worst, but Kobe lives!

Ha, yeah. But like I said originally. There's a very fine line between devoted and a complete pain in the rear.

Ugh. I'm in a major battle against puppy warts. Ascari picked up the virus most likely at the dog park. Gross. They are very common, but there is no cure. It's just waiting for her puppy immune system to fight them.

She has 3 cauliflower-looking growths on her chin and lip. Gross. The vet crushed them to stimulate antibodies, but didn't pull them off. Gross. I had to do it again on Sunday and was told to feed whatever I could pull off to her. Gross. Again, it generates antibodies in the bloodstream.

I've also switched to raw hamburger and a mix of kale, red pepper, blueberries and spinach to help boost her immune system. I also am now giving her L-lysine.

What a pain. And another reason to hate dog parks.

That sounds... yeah, gross. :shudder:


While I was at a trade show yesterday, Owen got into my roommate's room and devoured a **** ton of their dog's blue buffalo dog food. He said "7 lbs", but I feel like that might be an exaggeration. Nevertheless, they got home to a pile of diarrhea on the carpet and put him outside until I got back. In that time they said he kept crapping, and crapping and crapping. There were several occasions last night when he would stand up, burp and start dry-heaving. I'd usher him into the bathroom, but he never threw up. Anyway, he's hanging out in his crate until I get back at lunch so any further damage will be localized.

I'm going to by them some more dog food and a proper container so this doesn't happen again. Poor glutenous dog...

Beans had them as a puppy. Took like a year for them to totally clear up.
I would smoosh em and they smelled like copper pennies. Weird.

Yeah. And she will still get the odd one every once in a while. My vet told me there wasnt really anything I could do about it.

Yeah, she told me the same. Just developing puppy immune system woes.
Ascari is super healthy, though, otherwise.

^My dog lays in the oddest most uncomfortable looking positions i've ever seen. Shes such a weirdo. I'll come downstairs and she'll be laying upside down with her head tucked underneath her arms/body. Its hard to describe, I'll need to take a picture.

I took Owen to the Vet and now have some prescription gastrointestinal canned-food, a prescription of Metronidazole and some good ol' Pepto Bismol. We have a check up on Friday, fingers crossed.

Got your PM, Niccer. Show went great. We didn't win, but I didn't expect to -- lots of pro handlers. Got some video!

Little Update - with video, from my show this weekend.

I have a feeling I'm going to regret this.

The "Go around" -- AKA, the dorky "run in a circle thing"


This is me "stacking" him for initial judging.


This is the "exam," the "down and back," and the "free stack." Exam was a nightmare. He was standing great, but drooling a little. (My fault for baiting him just before the judge examines him.) The judge approached, saw the drool, and brought over a paper towel. Eeek. You can see me panic and wipe it on my skirt. The judge laughed. Ayrton then whigged out and got out of his stack. :angry: Oh well, I nailed the down and back and the free-stack. But you can't see it, because some dumb bitch stood in front of my friend filming.

Good stuff! Do the judges always lack emotion??

Was the judge that lives in Apex that did one of the parts of the Westminster Show there?

Yep, Dennis McCoy. I walked past him.

Actually, this judge was pretty personable. But, hell if I know, I've only been in the ring 4 times in my life.

Did you do the creepy sniff and shudder?





If that was personable, I'd hate to see the usual.
