Man, 16 years is a long time. I know Craig had a dog for 10 years that had to be put to sleep, Apollo, and when they did it, they didn't inject enough the first time to put him to sleep, just enough to cause a lot of pain, and they had to re-do it, and then he just fell limp, and he said it was the worst thing he ever had to do. It was very sad. I didn't know him then, it was when he was with his first wife, but I think she even had the dog 5 or 6 years before they got together, so she probably had it about 16 years. I would be just crushed. I can only imagine how hard that must have been. I hope you never have to go through it again.

I took Ajax to the vet yesterday. He now weighs 1 lb 15 oz. They took his stitches out and checked his leg and he is all better. Just waiting on his hair to grow back. LOL. They had to give him his booster shot so he was a little groggy, but is doing better today.

That's awful about Apollo...

Yes, he is a cutie. I never got to meet Apollo, but it was a very sad story to hear. I feel for anyone who has had to put a pet to sleep.

It's very hard to do, but sometimes, it's for the best. I had a lot of great years with Darryl

Yes, I know what you mean. If the pet is suffering with no chance of getting better, it's better to put them down, then to keep them alive. I bet it's really emotional to go through, because you wouldn't want to be selfish, and keep them alive, but you don't want to lose someone you really care about either.

I got Ajax to start eating regular food the past couple of days. He was on that prescription kind in a can, and it was almost impossible to get him to switch, I tried all the tricks online, mixing the 2, pouring warmed canned chicken broth over it, powdered goats milk, etc. and NOTHING worked. Craig told me to try to pour regular milk over it, just enough to moisten it a tad, and it worked. YEAH!!!

Plus in all of my food switching research I found out that dog food that contains corn, can cause dogs with food allergies to itch, and he has been itching for weeks with no sign of why, and I read his food and it has corn in it, so I switched to one with out corn, that contains mother's milk, and he is doing perfect.

Now, we just need some of that hair to grow back.

Me, too. He was shaved in 6 different spots for catheters, so he's in need of some hair growth now. Hopefully that will happen soon.

Hey, I actually took him in for a vaccination last week, and he had some hair missing on his face, that we didn't even notice, they said he has gotten some sort of mite mange that is hereditary (they get it from their mother) that is caused by stress, and we have to put some cream on it daily, but he seems to be doing fine with it, it isn't spreading to his entire body or anything, and he had a few fleas also, that I think he may have gotten at the vet, so we had to get some once a month flea treatments. He didn't have to be dipped for the fleas or mange, because it wasn't bad, and it's good, because he's too small to dip in my opinion, and the hair is growing back on his butt really slow. His hair is already back on his legs and throat, but it's just creeping along on the butt. He is still eating well, and I am hoping he will come out of all of this okay. It seems like it's one thing after another, but he is getting the hang of basic commands, and trying to get him house broken is turning into a real task, but he's coming along, and I think everything else will pass. The fleas seem to be gone, and if the mange is caused by stress, like they say, I can definitly believe he's been under his share of stress the past month and a half. We'll keep our fingers crossed that he is going to do nothing, but get better from here on out. Luckily these new problems aren't major, like before.

Thanks for asking, I will keep you updated.

Aww, poor little thing. He's had such a tough time of it, but I'm sure your TLC is helping him through.

The fleas and mange are now gone. The cream is really helping. I think the house training will just take a little longer then most puppies, because he has been through so much, and is probably just now figuring out where his home is, ya know? I noticed yesterday that his hair is growing more on his butt, so I think it's all coming together, but he will be okay.

Thanks for asking, you are sweet.

Hey there.

I'm really expecting my new puppy to end up in a cast. Shes just insane! She leaps off really high things and trips over all the time and just goes mental. I cant keep my eyes off her for a second!

BTW Carrie, how is the toilet training going!?? Any tips?
