  1. 35 (or as my kids say- "29 for the 6th time)
  2. well taht post got all screwed up, but I hope you understand:)
  3. [quote]Hmm, I could have sworn she adopted Boonie after Justin had left too... [quote] nope, thats one of the few things I know for sure :-? they both went and got him, and that night my kids and I met them at 6 flags for a halloween thing.........[/quote]
  4. I was being told the same as you - heartworm that the vets were either charging a fortune or simply refusing to treat. ofcourse now I wonder :( I heard the murmur was minor (?) I cant remember for sure on that
  5. boonie was adopted last october (?) right before Justin left, they both met cynthia in seattle at a show or something I believe and adopted him. the rest were all after he left. I hope that clarifies some things atleast :-?
  6. I dont even know what to say at this point. I am so upset about everything that has happened, I have learned so many things over the past week or two that make me so angry and sad. I dont even know what things were ever the truth now. :cry: The only thing I do know is I thank dog I have Stryker - every day I tell him how lucky we are. I just wanted to check in here and let you all know I am still alive - just working alot and trying to figure out alot of things lately. I miss all of you!
  7. Oh Alena - Im so sorry! :cry: :cry: Did the vet suggest she be PTS because of the biting or the medical condition? Is there a test they can do to see if it is what they suspect? Its a tough decision all around, being a mom too, I know your kids safety has to come first, but I think if it were me I would get a second opinion (I have a really good vet if you want the number or help with that) and if they say the same thing, sadly, I think I would put her to sleep :( You can make the end of her life very special, so that you know she left feeling loved. In my opinion that would be easier on her and you, that way she is not confused and you arent left wondering what happens with her......... again, Im so sorry - I love Star, and I know you guys do too - keep me posted!
  8. that was great - and my 7 yr old daughter loved ALL the games! she had a little trouble identifying the pit bull, esp the puppy, but she learned alot and the other games she ACED :D
  9. I LOVE that! I think I might have to frame it and put it in the entry way!
  10. yep - definetely, GO TO THE COTTAGE! :D If they can't understand why you won't just ship off the pooches dog knows where, its not even worth trying to explain. :wink: send a card or gift, and go relax and don't worry about what they think
  11. Oh my dog - Bailey has gained 7 lbs in less than a year!! she is now 37 lbs! :o The vet says she is really healthy and looks great, that most of the weight is probably just "maturing" and filling out since she is almost 2 yrs old, but she was shocked at how much it was and even weighed her 3 times to be sure :lol: She said she can still feel her ribs so doesnt consider her overweight, but to keep an eye on it anyway :roll: other than that all seems to be good and the vet did comment that she can tell Ive been working with her on her fear and security issues and she seemed to be coming a long way :D (maybe she was jsut "saying it", but it did make me feel good anyway :wink: ) All that being good seems to have wiped her out though cause she came home and crashed!
  12. thanks - that helped, now I need to find out whether her rabies was a 1, 2 or 3 yr..... I did opt for bordatella before because she was goign to be in obedience class, but she ended up gettinmg it anyway, so I wont be doing that again unless for some reason I have to board her and its required :roll: another question - if you have done 3 yr immunizations shoudl they still get an exam every year, or is every two or three ok if they are healthy?? I dont mean to sound ignorant, just curious :oops:
  13. Baileys going in next week for her annual check up, I remember quite awhile back people talking about whether to immunize or not, etc..... can you help me find that info ? I seem to remember some of her shots last year (at 8 mo old when we adopted her) were the "newer" 3 yr, so she shouldnt need any of that, although I think the reminder card I got said she did :-? I know rabies is required by law, is that an every year one? sorry such stupid questions, I really havent kept up on that stuff :oops: but now I want to be prepared for what she needs and what I do not want her to have for her appt....... Thanks!
  14. those are great!! do bailey and stryker!! :D please, please, please :wink:
