Dante update / Chi update / Life update

Took little Dante to the vet yesterday after work. NOT GOOD! He either has doggy H1N1 or pneumonia. The vet said if it is H1N1 just say a prayer... if is it pneumonia medicine and prayers which is what we are doing.

Dante has to be separated from all the other dogs so that no one else gets sick. Regardless of what he has it is contagious. So, he is living in my laundry room in the dog tub :-) I fill the tub with blankets and propped up his head so he could breath.........

I didn't want to put him in a crate since the animal control office said he has been living in one covered in his own stuff for a really long time. Mindy who got him from the pound for me said his nails were curled all the way around. He couldn't eve walk. She said she had never seen anything like that. OMG! Can you imagine if this dog got put to sleep in the pound....... UGH! Living such a horrible life for God only knows how long and then dieing like that...... ya know what even if he is so sick that he doesn't make it, at least he died LOVED!

People who do this stuff to dogs make me so darn mad!

Anyway, Dante has a 50 / 50 chance my vet says so please say a prayer for this cute little boy!

Ok, the prego Chi from last week. She had an ultra sound on Tuesday and the babies all seem healthy. She is scheduled to have a c section on Wed. However, that can be pushed back if she is not producing milk. She has to be producing milk before we can do the c section! So, let's hope that happens before the babies kill her.

The poodle with heartworm started his treatment on Monday...... 60 days worth of treatment. UGH!


I got a new dog in today from Tiffin Ohio. I haven't met him yet but heard he is a nice dog.. LOL He is at my house right now waiting for me.

So, yesterday when I was at my vet office.. my vet office is family owned and my family has known / been friends with them forever. Old man Dr. XX started the practice, his son took it over and now his daughter works there. The daughter and I are only a few years apart.. 4 - 6 maybe.. She is younger.

So, yesterday I go to the vet office and they tell me she was attacked by two dogs, Cane Corso mix dogs. The breed is VERY aggressive.. not like people made them that way aggressive like people say about Pit Bulls but actually hard wired to be MEAN! Apparently the neighbor was breeding them.... it is one of the people I sent a letter to asking nicely to please stop breeding and explained the over population too. IDIOTS!

The dogs left their yard and attacked her in her own yard! 20 bites to her arms, butt and back. It will be on the local news tonight.

Animal Control was called and everyone was trying to catch the dogs. They ran into the road and were BOTH hit be a semi. DEAD! Well law states that anyone bit by a dog, the dog has to be quarantined for 10 days before it can be euthanized. Well since the dogs are dead they have to have their heads (yes ONLY their heads) sent for testing. GROSS!

And to top it all off the vet that these people use for their dogs is YEP you guessed it. My vet, the same vet the dogs attacked!



Everyone just pray for Dante, Ok?

Hi there! I found your blog when I was searching for info on crate rest for dogs with a broken pelvis. Your blog was just what I needed to read this morning!

I have become your newest follower and I'll be back again!

Saying a special prayer for your little Dante!

I forgot to mention that the dog that I now have in my home (with the broken pelvis) is a Jack Russell Terrier.

She had been hit by a car and was crate-resting at our local vet's office. She was a stray and after 3 1/2 weeks, no one claimed her. Our wonderful vet staff knew that we were looking for a dog and contacted us about her. She is just the loveliest dog! :)

Welcome A.Marie!

I can't believe what a terrible chain reaction this whole thing has been, with the canes.

I saw the story on the news and it completely pissed me off! They showed pictures of canes and said "you would never think this dog would ever hurt anyone, well this wasn't the case in Eaton Twp...." SO STUPID! Those dogs are AGRESSIVE, and as Am said, by nature! She also has told me that many vets wont even see this breed because they are so aggressive.

I don't know why anyone would want a dog like that. Dogs are supposed to be pets, it is 2009 you know. Some dogs are working dogs yes; protection, police, hunting, guide dogs, the list goes on. BUT they are also accepted into the home as family, or at least they should be.

Canes are not the "family dog." Some may say that about Pit Bulls but that is purely because of idiots breeding for aggression and fight. The Pit is a gentle family oriented dog.

Ugh, people never cease to amaze me. As I have said many times, this is why we rescue DOGS not PEOPLE!

That's just me venting about this situation. I feel so bad for Dr XXX. She was only trying to do the right thing and protect them from getting hit by a car.

Ironic how it all ended up...isn't it?
