Hi Sophie, love all the great pictures of the kids. How's the skipping coming along? I got the impression you knew about the Whip It song that Terri was referring to, but just in case this is a link to the video on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbt30UnzRWw Have a great day. Kiri and Muffy
By the way, WELL DONE IM SO PROUD OF YOU TO READ YOUR NOTE ON THE BREEDING OF DOGS!!!!!!!! IM SO TRYING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE HERE IN IRELAND AND INFORM PEOPLE ADOPT DONT SHOP!!! THE MORE YOU BUY A DOG THE LONGER PUPPY FARMERS WILL CONTINUE TO BREED THEIR BITCHES ITS AN ABSOLUTE MONEY RACKET AND IT REALLY MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL!!!!!!!!! XXXX
Thanks for the information Sophie, I am still of two minds, not going to change him till after we see how this stuff goes down, he needs a month to see how it does, I will keep in touch though, I am glad to hear that Milo is doing better, they do give you heart attacks. Helena
Sounds like you may have hit this problem on the nail, you can only work on it and fingers crossed he will be alright. No reason why a Dog cannot suffer from low sugar, I had one with Diabetes so that can happen too.You can only keep an eye on him and see how he does. regards Helena
Sophie how is Milo now? I have just this minute read your blog and like you wondered ab out the treats, considering that you had eliminated nearly all the bad things from his diet I too wondered about the colourings. It is either that or a reaction to the vaccination. Only the Vet can tell you. I do ho[e he is alright. Helena
I think you have to be commended for the work you have put in with Milo and if anyone can get him through his silver I go with Milo, Hektor still has patience issues, he hates waiting, you should hear him at traffic lights. I really don;t think I will every cure him of that.
I do know what you mean about seeing the Mother, I bought my Mother a JR years ago and by the time he got to two I had to put him down. The house he came from, well let us say I should have dragged my Mum away. You have seen where Hektor came from and you have seen his family. I met Nettle Mae and his Grandmother Zelda and his Auntie Fay, all well cared for Ladies with great temperaments. Hektor is a supremely confident dog, quite dominant but Debbie the girl who took his class said that they are the easiest to train because they are not nervous. His Pedigree has more orange on it than a fruit drink because he comes from an American Kennel who is the home at last count 80 odd and his Mum's father was Best of Breed 2006 and his Great Granddad was Best of Breed 2005. If you want a noisy site to visit look up Candyland Pugs of Ohio, his granddad was Casper, who is black (turn the sound off). Now Sue has Hektor's Dad as well and he is as you have seen a cracker of a dog. The couple who imported him said he would not settle but Sue had no problem with him.
Anyway it is nice to boast about your dog, it is better than always moaning as I seemed to be doing. Mind you Hektor is still not averse to taking on anything that annoys him, and this morning Mum's heart was on her mouth as the usual suspect type turned up with a bonny staffie pup and Mother with more muscles than Arnold Shwartsnegger. I sort of moved Hektor out of the road, cos I never know what could happen as Hek is daft enough to think he would win. Helena
Hi Sophie, I think that your Milo and my Hektor would wipe the floor with them all. He sounds so much like Hektor. I have always thought that Pugs were much cleverer than they were given credit for. I am working on Hektor's stay, he is normally good but he has a low boredom threshold and he did get up on Saturday. If we do the Silver he will have to do a two minute stay and this is timed, I am sure in the right conditions, he could do it. I like you have noticed that Shih Tzu's can be very snappy, nice but not a Pug, though according to Bruce Fogle they have been around longer by 3,000 years. The Petit Brabacon, was a sweet little girl but she has had a bit of a bad start, she is three like Hektor but she formerly belonged to a gentleman who is terminally ill. The girl who has her now has her work cut out as she need socialisation and that is her problem with the barking. She gets so worked up about other dogs that she barks all the time. She was great with Hektor because he can be so calm. I always wanted a Belgian Griffon, the Griffon Bruxellois which is the rough coated one. They are considered the brainiest dogs, I always remember reading an article when I was a very young girl. Cuddles to Milo and Peawee and a manly regard from Hektor.
Bear in mind Lucas was a monster at birth and hasn't changed his ways since. Next to him Misty is nothing more than a little fly. Well butterfly, very dainty though. She I think will be a wisp of a girl. Much like her mother, perhaps smaller, we shall see.
Sorry forgot to answer that question about Lucas, six months old end of this month. Weighing in at 22 pounds and some. Of course I will research this family further. I am very hard on people that want one of my kids, always have been. They are my kids, nobody will ever treat them the way I do, but they will go to people that are close.
You didn't know about a pug baby cause I kept big secret from everyone. Figured you would all attack me for her getting pregnant again. I was not pleased with the ole man, that's for sure, but there was nothing at that point I could do other than say great! Way to go Walker, you just had to go and wake up didn't you?! Right now, not certain what I'm going to do. I know a Vietnam Vet that is 69 yrs old. that found a pug wandering around and took it in, being the right kind of people they advertised and the owners came and got him (this was 10 some years ago) He had the pug for about a month and of course got really attached to it. His wife and him are on a very modest income and cannot afford one, and he wants one so much and for so long......well, knowing me, I am full of surprises, ya just never know. The people that picked the pug up were so grateful that they told him they would give him a pug from a litter, we all know how that turned out. I'm thinking what would the look on his face be if I just showed up one day with her and said, here ya go, a little baby you've wanting for so long.
Sophie, I am very sure that Milo will pass with flying colours as I have watched the work you have done with him. I will be consulting you on your BARF diet that you have the duo on as though I am working on another dry food I think Hektor would be better on fresh food.
Sophie, Walker is a very clever man, Malia had pants on. The brothers and I went for a walk when we got back Walker had Malia disrobed, the rest is history. This time she will be spayed. Walker is just to clever for his own good.
Hello, Sophie! I just read your comment now and I'm glad everyone's doing well. Alexander's been a good boy, especially now that I'm pregnant and I can't keep up with him as much. He's been very patient with me. Although I'm sure he resents the fact that he keeps getting evicted from my lap. (Not much room now and he keeps stepping on my tummy.) I can't wait for him to meet the baby and find out what he tastes like heh-heh. Thanks for the update. You all take care and have a happy halloween! :D
Hello, Sophie, Milo and Peawee! Been a long time. I just read your status and I wanted to congratulate Milo. Yipee! What a good boy! How is he by the way? Healthwise, I mean. I hope he's doing great. Peawee too of course. I also read the blog post about Peawee winning. Congratulations to him too. You guys keep up the good work. :D
