    Fussy Puppy

    Thanks for the replies. I guess if I had to eat a plate of dehydrated meat every day I'd ask for something to make it a bit more exciting too! My neighbour gave me some cans of reasonable quality food that they got by accident and I've been mixing that in, alternating with salmon or eggs. That...

    Big Thor is gone

    We had to say goodbye to our big boy Thor on Saturday. Thor was the dog that saved me after we lost Garvin. After losing 3 Boxers in as many years I couldn't face another one. I figured I'd get sent the right dog. Thor was a Dane X whose last days were running out at the pound. He came to us...

    Fussy Puppy

    I think I have made a rod for my own back. Miss Fiona (6 months) is not particularly interested in her food. She gets a grain free kibble. She did wolf down the Purina that the breeder sent with her, but this one at 5 times the price....nope. So I've been mixing in some peanut butter or egg or...

    Has anyone here used surgical removal/chemo/radiation for brain tumors in their boxers?

    Best wishes to Thora. A friend just lost their GSD earlier this year, she had DM and she lived pretty well with it for several years. They got her a kind of carry harness, where you sort of carry her around like a suitcase. She still had a pretty happy life so hopefully Thora will get a lot more...

    Is Autumn to tactile and rambunctious in doggy day care?

    Yes agreed, if no ones complained and the other dogs don't appear bothered then it's likely not bothering them. Probably she's found the other dogs in the group that like to play hard. Miss Fiona was also the most rambunctious puppy in puppy kindy so she mostly played with the other tough nut dogs.

    My buddy argos

    So sorry that you have lost your Argos. They really are such a huge part of your life. What a blessing to have 14 wonderful years together. He's running free at the Bridge now, without sickness or pain.

    Skylar had a seizure this past Sunday

    Hi Sorry to hear about the seizure, that must have been scary. Have you had a look to see if there are any hydrotherapy places near where you live? Our Dane is getting weak in his back legs and the specialist he has to see a few times a year recommended hydrotherapy. A physio would help too...

    Age at First Heat?

    Just wondering what the average age is for a female to have her first heat cycle? I've never dealt with a female in heat before so not quite sure when it is likely to happen or what to expect. We fostered a cat once that was in heat and it was PSYCHO evilicon so really hoping dogs are not the...

    Puppy Vaginitus

    So apparently Miss Fiona has puppy vaginitis. I took her to the vet because she appeared to have a UTI, took her back 10 days later when it hadnt cleared up, they decided it's puppy vaginitis. Gave me some some Kenacomb cream which I've been applying for a bit over 2 weeks (admittedly I did miss...

    Water Obsession

    Well it looks like she has grown out of it. She has now moderated her water intake so she doesn't drink every drop every time, and only licks a small patch of the yard. Possibly it being very cold has helped with this! So that is one less thing to worry about!

    Water Obsession

    So our 14 week old Fiona is obsessed with drinking water. I can only put a little in her bowl at once or she will just drink the whole lot and throw up (she does this at puppy kindy too as they just have big buckets for them to drink out of). Potty time takes forever as all she wants to do is...

    Exercise with Heart Issues

    So sorry that you had to say Goodbye to Clavin. As you said, 12+ is a good age for a Boxer to get to, but that doesn't make it any easier to bear. Our best wishes to you. Good luck with the travel etc, I said the same thing when we lost Garvin, we made it 10 weeks before we couldn't deal with...

    Introducing Miss Fiona

    She is 10 weeks old today. She is named after 'Burn Notice' TV character, Fiona Glennane. I hoped she would be brave and feisty like her. She's definitely feisty but not too brave, she's pretty frightened of the cats :LOL:
