I sponsor dogs at the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter, get their pictures out there. One of the volunteers kids is drawing pictures of the dogs and the are being put on their kennels. One of my long time sponsor pups is Lexi Mama, over 2 years at the shelter. She was lucky to have her picture done by Caitlin. Take a look.

I was making cran/Apple turkey meatball treats for Dexter and our two tiny friends, Tyra and Gino. Someone asked for the recipe and I posted it. Figured I will put it here also.

3 pounds of ground turkey (93% lean was on sale for 1.99 per pound), 1/2 cup cranberries chopped, 1 apple chopped, 1 tablespoon ground egg shell, 1 tsp flax seed, 1 egg, 1 cup cooked brown rice, 1-2 tsps natural vinegar (with the "mother") and mix it all together. I make small meatballs (about the ...size of Swedish Meatballs or a bit smaller). Put them in oven at 350 on foil which has bene sprayed with oil, and bake maybe 8 mutes, I turn them, and then bake maybe 5 minutes. You can play with this recipe, I have used cooked quinoa, plain yogurt, pear, banana, ground carrots, blueberries. This made around 160 meatballs, I freeze in packs of 10 in small sandwich bags, which I put into freezer bags, and then take them out as I want them.

A dog just died choking on a tennis ball. I’ve heard this way too many times and this time from a colleague of mine who was called to help. From the phone, before she could make it to the dog, she gave CPR instructions. It was too late. The dog walker tried to dislodge the... Read more

I have been keeping Alberta up on the goings on with Tika and she suggested that I post about it as well.

So a little history, Tika is a almost 14 year old Chihuahua and has always had allergy/skin issues. She has an allergy to grains so she is on grain free food. She is allergic to flea bites so I make sure she gets her flea meds regularly.

A couple of months ago i took her to the vet for a bump on her side, it was an infected skin cyst and I asked about her constant lic...king on her feet and stomach area and the "frito" smell she has had for years. She also has two bald spots on her rear end, she skin is scaley ( looks a lot like the skin on an elephant). The diagnosed her with Atopy, which is a type of dermatitis. So she got a shot of antibiotics and cytapoint that first visit. The antibiotic for the cyst as well as the overall skin infection from the dermatitis, and the cytopoint for the allergies.

last friday she had her third shot of cytopoint, which she gets monthly to every 6 weeks, depending . Last night i noticed that her hind feet were swollen, crusty and raw looking. Did not seem to be hurting her at least. So today back to the vet we went.

Basically with all the things going on with her skin and her on antiobiotics she has a bad yeast infection on her feet so she is on an oral fungal med for a couple of weeks and being bathed twice a week with a medicated shampoo which has to stay on for 10 minutes each time to keep things under control.... so can we say a ticked off chi..

I use the 10 minutes to scrub and descale her and rubbing it between the toes and pads of her feet as well ...I do love my vets thou, they are caring and don't treat me like I am ignorant...he told me that without her skin issues the bathing routine i have is a good one...so Frodo stays on it and Tika will get them more often

Does your pup like to play outside like Radar?

Somehow I thought when I adopted a short haired dog, grooming would be some bathing, and perhaps a little brushing to get Dexter used to it, but no real shedding. Ha! All of my other pups were long haired, or double coated, and of course it blew through the house like tumbleweeds. This is actually worse. he loves to lay on my DH and when they got up DH looked like a Yak. Out came the lint rollers. So I took out the old brush, you know the ones with the nail looking things com...ing out of it. It did nothing--and i didn't want to press because he is always afraid of new things. So I checked out the Kong Zoom Groom, it was on sale at Amazon for a little over $5.00 as an add on (and I needed a bucket full of lint rollers). I got it the other day, and started using it. it's great. the fur get pushed into clumps on him, and I pick it off. After the first time, when i went carefully for a few seconds at a time, he decided he loved it and rolls over on his back to get his belly (bald as it is) done too. My trainer friend said i could also use it to bathe him, as a fun scrub brush. I am sure you are laughing Luciann because my guess is you have a good deal of shedding with Tika and Frodo. Here's a pic of it.

Having had this problem for years with my Linus I appreciate this poster. Dexter is also somewhat reactive, but once close he is ok, just nervous. However, I am working with Dexter because he also can't just go up to people or dogs he doesn't know. We are working on "let's go" and walking the other way, and "leave it", stop staring at whatever that is and look at me.

Pictures of black dogs are always a challenge. I always had a problem getting shots of my Bella. Viktoria Vetter got this one of Radar and we can see how he is growing. A Mommy's boy for sure snuggling.

Starting Dexter with this easy game before moving on to more challenging puzzles. Tires him out and he can have dinner this way too.
