There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Frezon Dog: Paws Deux ;) Meet Parker:  We brought Parker home today from our friends at Peppertree Rescue.  He is a senior dog.  He was abandoned somewhere in Pennsylvania and is estimated to be about 11 years old!  Except for some treatments for some skin/coat issues, he seems to be in pretty good health. We've got some concerns about adopting such an old dog (for some pretty obvious reasons, I think)...but, OTOH, we love the idea about giving this beautiful old dog a good home after he's had some really hard times.   We've had an incredibly good first day today.  Quite a contrast to our first few days with Moses.  The drama and tension doesn't seem to be in play this time around.  Parker seems to be fine with his role as submissive male. And here is some evidence of that as Kelly is quite peaceably coexisting tonight with Parker  
Nice,seems like two best friends...envy with green eyes!

I'm glad you did that. he looks like a good boy. :) I'd planned to do that myself. It's hard to go by the shelters and not get the most un-adoptable dog they have.

^ that is one cute little dog. I'm surprised he was there for 2 days. Lucky trucker! Glad he got his friend back. Losing the other one should have taught him to be more careful.

Did you forget a picture??? You have "There's Jessie the yodelin....


I assume that your new dog is coming along fine. I agree with you answer about ask the Vet. I don't have a pet (not allowed too!).


Is it now a "modern expression" "put down" I have always used "put to sleep".

Hmmmm.  There should be FIVE pictures in Post #47.  You don't see them?!?  Posted Image  I do.


Anyone else seeing/not seeing them?


And the whole point of the pictures was to show that he has, indeed, become an important member of the Frezon family already.

Yup.  "Put down" means the same as "put to sleep."  Because of the different physiology of dogs, it is important to rely on the expert's advice when it comes to the condition of the animals.  Dogs are much more stoic about aches and pains than us humans.  But this is a discussion for that other thread...

Mike, i thought i would come to your thread for our news. As Mike, and a few others guys on the forum know, we lost our Yorkie last week. After a week of looking online we found a part Shih-tzu/Bichon frise. She is a two year old rescue, and her name is Maddie. The question i ask...why would anyone get rid of this dog!? She is sweet, well trained, and a beautiful dog. My wife feels a little bit like she is "cheating" on Millie by getting this dog. As for me, i think i love this dog BECAUSE, of how i felt about Millie after she was gone. You have to enjoy life while you have it! Words to live my, in every sense! I will post a pic of her, when i take some.

Yay, Rick!  Posted Image


Let's get some pictures soon!


Tell your wife that Millie would not want her to be pining for her all the time.  Millie would likely want her to have the companionship that Millie provided.  Sounds like the two of you are making the right move!


As I wrote above I don't think of Brooks as a replacement for Hudson.  He's just a different dog that I am being blessed with the opportunity to give a home and provide comfort.  And as you will quickly find out...each dog comes with his/her own temperament, attitude, and disposition.   And its fun to be able to make those comparisons and figure each other out.

Interesting,  I was ready for a dog a lot sooner than my wife was after we lost one last year.  Sounds like Maddie will be a great dog.  Just keep reminding yourself that just like people each dog is different, so try not to make comparisons.

Romeo had a run in with a coyote or racoon this week, not sure which.  I didn't hear anything, just saw him lying on the deck licking his shoulder.  Curiosity affects dogs too.  Drains came out yesterday but he needs to keep the cone of shame on for a few more days.

2 pics of Maddie. You know, i better ask my wife how we spell it. I have seen Maddy, and Maddie. Not sure what one is her spelling. I am sure it is on her papers. Today is her first full day with us. My wife is at work, so Maddie(y) has been helping clean house. What a helper. She has hidden the same treat about 5 times.

I also had a pic of Millie from last year. Here she is doing what she did best, sleeping on her heating pad. My wife always had her heating pad out, during the winter so she would not get cold. We saved the heating pad cover, and put it away with her stuff.

Rick:  Excellent pictures!  Thanks for sharing one of Millie along with the two of Maddie/Maddy/Madeline/Mad Dog Murdock (you can always use that one whenever she gets into trouble!).  Looking forward to hearing how she trains the two of you to do her bidding!   :laugh:

I don't understand the confusion.  Let her help.  Call her with each name and see which one she answers to. Problem solved.

As long as he holds still it's great!  I caved in today and switched him out to a T-shirt.

And how many dogs do we know that hold still? :laugh:


That's why I'll never let Brooks get Dish Network.  We're sticking with Time-Warner.  The cable acts like a leash in case he gets worked-up watching Cesar Milan.

Glad to hear Romeo is on the mend.  :thumbs-up-smiley:

I will assume that most of the people checking into this thread are dog lovers/owners.


For all of you, I have a rather serious comment:  a fact that I did not know until yesterday.


Corn cobs can kill dogs.  They are a horrible health risk to dogs. 


As an owner of several dogs throughout the years (and as someone who is married to a woman who blogs daily about dogs) I had heard about the dangers of chocolate and onions and many other common human foods to our canine friends...but this one was new to me.


We've had Brooks now for two months.  Just the other night we took him to the local promotion at our local minor-league ballpark ("Bark in the Park").  We had a great time:

DSC04953.JPG

 

DSC04952.JPG

But, all the sudden yesterday, he developed symptoms of trouble.  He started dry-heaving and wouldn't eat, etc.  Then, he threw up a section of corn on the cob.  We don't give our dogs scraps...but there was one time--a few weeks ago--when we caught him getting into a trash bag.  This was new behavior in our household since our other dog wouldn't normally do this.  Apparently, in that one brief transgression (it all happened in a few seconds' time), Brooks wolfed down the remnants of an ear of corn.


Here's the problem.  Corn cobs don't digest.  The pieces sat (unknown) in his stomach for weeks.  Two of them came back up yesterday...but two others started to make their way through his digestive tract.  This is where they are dangerous.  The sharp edges of the cob can perforate their colon...and they can also become wedged in the smaller parts of the tract and become obstructions.


So...I am doing something now I had previously thought I would never do...and that's sign off on a HUGE vet bill as Brooks had emergency surgery last night at our vets.

Something so simple and seemingly harmless has turned my household upside down in just a few hours time.  We got him to the vets last night at 5:30pm and were there until 11pm.  After numerous X-rays (including barium contrast), they decided they needed to operate.  We got word about 2am that he had made it through the procedure.  We hope to be able to bring him home today...but we're not sure.
