Re: Tick prevention

We have lymes disease here popping up like crazy. Gavin actually get the vaccine. He has a lot of allergies so we don't use anything and only have pulled off about two ticks last year. If Lyme is big in your area I would suggest getting the vaccine. We decided to vaccinate the horses this year as we...

Re: Biking with your bully

We bike at a comfortable trot in the beginning, bump it to a run for a few minutes in the middle and back down to a trot. With the nice weather we are starting up again this year :) he likes the trot the most, and he can go awhile before starting to tire. But he does enjoy the run and to just let it...

Re: Looking for help with Mast Cell Tumor

Welcome to the forums. There are many of us who have delt with mast cell cancer. I am not an expert on it, so I will let the others offer better advice. My personal dog has had three rumors so far and is stage 2. Our vet thinks he has a good prognosis if we keep a fast response. I keep him on a grai...

Re: Good Lord, anything else at this time?

I too would be willing to send something I can't do much as I have my own issues with Gavin... But Val was kind enough to help us with him... And this is the least I could do. I feel so bad for both you Val and zoey. If I didn't have the issues I have with Gavin I would offer her a home. It's just n...

Re: Meatball....yes Meatball SW Michigan

I love this dog so much! Each time I see him re listed I wish we were in the position to add another dog. I hope he finds that perfect home, he deserves it! Not to mention hubby loves both all black and black and whites!

Re: Excited Growling?

Gavin has many different sounds he makes. He has growls where he wants to be alone or down right doesn't care for a person. He has growls of excitement, growls of "I want food", growls combined with "whooing" for when he wants to Potty or eat. I've learned along with his body lan...

Re: Shelters: ALTER YOUR DOGS before adopting!

I agree it boggles my mind. It was even better that they sent an intact pit bill home with someone that just turned 18, and still lived at home with their parents. They lucked out that I was responsible and did right by my dog. God knows how many kids walk in and leave with a new dog. I know funding...

Re: Shelters: ALTER YOUR DOGS before adopting!

Gavin was adopted to me intact. He came from a shelter here in pa. All they said is I had 4 weeks to fix him and had to turn in the voucher. I doubt they would have known if I never turned the voucher back in. Had I wanted to that four weeks could have given me ample time to see if he would breed...

Re: Biking with your bully

Add us to the mix of trying the bike riding thing. I just purchased a bike on friday, and haven't ridden since I was in middle school (ok, only about 10 years ago....but still!). Went out the first day alone, saw that I can still ride a bike so started Gavin yesterday. Went a short distance, and he ...

Re: Feeding Raw

This was a good read, especially because I would really like to get Gavin on a raw based diet. I tried it a few years ago, but honestly did not have the time to prepare it. He did love what he was getting of the raw (legs/wings/necks/livers etc). We have chickens here on the farm, and it would be gr...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

I think what *some* people are missing is that these are not your normal hogs you see on the farm. (Although the farmed hogs can be nasty..Jason has told me some good stories about being charged and pinned by a hog on the farm). These are animals that are ferral/wild, have no fear of humans and will...

Re: Mast Cell Tumors : Lessons Learned

My vet did not seem to feel it would be an issue removing bumps that he should develope in the future. I would think if bumps would appear directly related to the surgery it would be fairly soon after the surgery is done. This is gavins third lump, two developed last June and were treated at the sam...
