  1. To be put up for adoption early next week but.......... I took him to have him neutered last week and it turns out that he has an upper respiratory infection. Of course they wouldn't do the surgery. I now have to wait two weeks to try again. I am giving antibiotics. I guess the trouble is that the more time I/we spend with the little guy the more I/we like him. I can't keep another dog if I am going to foster. So please, someone kidnap the keepum fairy until I can get him to his forever home. Leah
  2. Niki was adopted from the Humane Society for $150.00. Bozy was adopted from ARPH, an Aussie rescue, for $200.00. Buddy was adopted from a high kill shelter in Eastern WA and I paid $75.00. All were altered and vetted. So you see it really varies from one organization to another as to how they charge. In a nut shell, I dont think that $300.00 to adopt a dog is too much.
  3. My very first foster dog arrived last night. His name is Pepper and he is a Border Collie cross. The group I volunteer for brought him from a high kill shelter in Utah. He came to us pretty late last night so I don't know much about him except that he is very submissive and small but very sweet. He's only 9 months old so there is hope for confidence building. My crew accepted him with open paws, to no surprise and you should have seen him with the cats. They scared the shiny out of him. I guess he's never seen cats before. I'll take more pics soon but here is the one listed from the shelter. [img]http://img108.imageshack.us/img108/5553/pepper4gz.jpg[/img]
  4. I feed Chicken Soup to my cats and dogs. Good stuff. Chicken, turkey, chicken meal, turkey meal, whole grain brown rice, whole grain white rice, oatmeal, potatoes, cracked pearled barley, millet, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), duck, salmon, egg product, flaxseed, natural chicken flavor, kelp, potassium chloride, salt, choline chloride, chicory root extract, carrots, peas, apples, dried skim milk, cranberry powder, rosemary extract, parsley flake. Vitamins and minerals.
  5. If you are indeed telling the truth is your dog chipped and have tags. If not, WHY?
  6. This is a very good forum. [url]http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/index.php?[/url]
  7. I'm sorry. :cry: I had a GSD many years ago that escaped my fenced yard and was mowed down by a car. I made my ex husband retrieve her. I couldn't bring myself to do it. It's a horrible horrible thing to have happen.
  8. I think that is rediculous. My four are alone for 14 hours a day. When I get home they are happier than crap to see me. We spend the rest of the evening together and all is good. On the other hand I would not have a single dog being left alone for that long.
  9. It looks like there is definately some Border Collie in her. She's adorable.
  10. Everyone is recovering. We went to the vet on Tuesday and KC was confirmed. Cody is the wellest of the three and was prescribed Amoxicillin. Niki and Bozy are on a higher dose and are also taking cough supressants. From now on they are going to routinely get the Bordatella (sp?) vaccine. Thank you all for your well wishes and concern. It means alot.
  11. I would definately get another Border Collie and Aussie. Yes that would make six but I don't like odd numbers. 8)
  12. Fortunately I have some robitussen something or other, which is okay for the dogs. I filled the injector and medicated all of them earlier this eve. I just hate seeing them sick and to think I could have prevented this. :(
  13. Niki, the worse, Bozy and Cody have been hacking all day. Of course my vet isn't in till Monday. I took temperatures and all are normal, but dang I hate seeing my dogs sick. Niki also has some sort of bug as she is very lethargic and has bad diarrhea. Needless to say, not a good day. I have a feeling they picked it up at the dogpark last weekend. I guess I wont be going back there anytime soon. :(
