Munchie's Microchip

Several Months after Munchie was microchipped my husband was petting him and felt something hard in his neck, it was his microchip, his body had rejected it, he developed and abscess and it popped out.

CH Highlander's Patriotic Dreams (Strider) handled expertly by Laurel Berg

Now Living the Good life

Trouble free zone

Mom FINALLY cleaned the office corner, so there is an exercise pen there now to keep me out of things while she's busy on the computer and busy cleaning.  I like it, much bigger than a crate and look at all the toys & bones and things I have to chew on!

Who's that doggie in the mirror?

Update on Monet

Monet is my sister's 11 year old Standard Poodle, in August she and her littermate Dante were let out of her yard, someone chased them into the next city, then the 2 dogs separated and Dante was caught while Monet was still on the loose.  She was lost & on her own for almost 4 weeks.  We had sightings of her on a wilderness trail area, (pictures here: and we went and looked for her every day.  Finally she was getting chased by a police officer and collapsed.  She was near death.  She had several wounds on her, and had maggots infesting her wounds.  With lots of love, medical care and tlc she made a full recovery.  Here she is now, over 6 months later...mind you she HATES cameras!

DeeJay found a fun toy.....Shellies tail...

Waist Not!

A few weeks ago, I noticed Shellie was getting tubby around the middle so I cut her back to 1.44# (2% of body weight) per day (she eats Prey Model Raw) instead of the 1.8# (2.5% of her body weight) she was eating.  I think she's looking pretty good!

Sea Horse

Please mom!  Give me my sea horse, I've been really good today!  I even got a bath and a fresh bandanna for St. Patricks Day!
Worried that Ziva (4#) min pin was going to steal her sea horse toy.  She is one of the most expressive dogs in her facial expressions.

Tug of War with Mom!
Worried that Ziva's gonna steal her toy.

I Wuv's my sea horse!

Shellie & her allergies...

As the weather warms up, we're spending more time outside, longer walks etc.  Well poor Shellie is itching herself the point I had to put an ecollar on her to keep her from making her ears bleed (she has an ear infection at the moment).  She has been on benadryl, but I don't think it's working any more so we are switching her to Zyrtec (generic) 3 & 1/2 tablets per day, but I found I can get it at Dollar Tree for $1 for 14 pills so 4 packs last about 2 weeks...cheaper than I priced it at least it's just once a day dosing instead of the 2-3 times a day that Benadryl needs.  Then we are also going to make sure she gets her Salmon Oil/Vit E Combo, Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, as well as keeping her on the diet she's on (raw).  I hope the Zyrtec helps, she's so miserable scratching and itching all the time.  She literally rubs her face on the carpet trying to get relief.  Darn allergies!  We are pretty sure it's Atopy/Seasonal as she is getting worse as the weather gets warmer and she's outside more.  I think it could be why she has no hair on her chest/stomach......from scratching so much.
