What a hard decision! I'm sorry things didn't work out. A friend of mine recently had to return a dog when he killed one of her chickens, then became OBSESSED with the chickens.

He was a senior dog with very few teeth left, so nobody thought he'd be a problem around the hens. Hard lesson learned. frown

Three words: nosework, nosework, nosework!

Nosework tires Jasper out almost as much as hard exercise, and it's way more fun for me!

We started with a few open boxes with a really stinky treat inside one of them. Gradually, I made the 'puzzle" harder and harder, now I can out him in his crate and hide the treat on a different floor of the house for him to 'find it'.

Sometimes I hide a few treats, or "trick" him by scenting several locations but leaving the treat in only one of them.

It's a fun game that never seems to get old for either of us. smile

We were at the dog park recently and saw a GORGEOUS Thai Ridgeback.

I also have some unusual doggies who shop in my store; a bedlington terrier, a pair of beaucerons, a pair of entlebuchers, a buhund, a klee kai and a silken windhound all make regular appearances. I love my store!

Yoshi: Sadly, sex offenders are given a LOT of leeway compared to people who commit other crimes. When my grandfather was convicted of molesting two little girls he got house arrest, but when he got a DUI years later he went to jail. It seems so unfair.

Soooo...the long story is really long....the short version is this:

Holly Trinity is a three-legged German Shepherd puppy born this afternoon. Her father chewed off her right rear leg. My sister and I are fostering her until she's old enough to find a good home. She is adorable, and we love her!

Sleepy Trinity

See the left rear leg?

Uh...Jasper can't take Rimadyl - it causes a violent GI reaction. That doesn't mean Rimadyl is a terrible medication, it just means that it's not right for us.

Jasper was attacked badly by a boxer, and since then I am uncomfortable around him and boxers, which I'm certain translates to him, as he seems uneasy around boxers. I think it's mostly him reacting to my unease.

We use alfalfa pellets. Cheap, easy to find, and completely safe. Plus, it works very well!

Snickers - Nu Stock may not kill demodex mites, but it soothes the discomfort and promotes hair growth, and it is safe for use on dogs, cats, horses, heck I used it on a

I manage a feed store in an area where a LOT of people don't have the money for veterinary care. A lot of my customers are one missed paycheck away from losing their homes, and they still love their animals. Nu Stock is a LOT safer than having my customers mess around with ivermectin on their own(I won't even order ivermectin for my store for this reason), and it seems to help enough to let the immune system take over and finish the job.

It's not a miracle fix, but it IS safe and helpful, especially in a puppy where the immune system is probably going to do most of the work on its own and just needs a little help.
