My other pets.
This is pipsqueak we got him when he was a puppy from a farm, he is a border collie mix he is about 8 months now. He got very sick with parvo and we did not know if he would make it but he is a strong puppy and he did make it. He did not want to eat and lost weight so we took him to the vet and told them to do what ever they had to do, now he is healthy and gained back his weight and is bigger and healthy now.

Here is what pipsqueak looks like now and that brown dog is one of my chows my other white chow was running around somewhere.

wow, they look to be happy and healthy. I love the before and after pup photos.
I figured i can share my two four leggers.

Both are rescues. The pekingnese is 10+ yrs old while the italian greyhound is 5.

thanks. They are best friends and always playing around with each other until one gets mad. Nice looking dogs you got is that greyhound full blood?

They look sweet. My two dogs are just getting along together now. She came from a friend who didnt want her anymore after she outgrew being a puppy and the greyhound came from a household where they wanted a puppy and sort of lost interest. it was chained daily when the family was out of the house. They couldnt be any more happier now. The Greyhound is an unfixed purebreed originally from South Dakota. he's only been with me for about three weeks. The Peke is also an akc purebreed from west virginia, if memory serves. she's been spoiled by me for the last 9 years. I love them to bits.

The old girl is picking up "doggy" habits more and more. she's learned how to growl to mark her territory, and also barks at strangers, which she never did for the past decade or so. i guess i can live with that since she been so good these past years. LOL...

The vet said Sam is very oversized for an italian grey and added that being unfixed has a lot to his growth due to the hormones as such.

I must say you take amazing photos. i am limited to my camera phone at the moment so its probably as good as it gets for now.

I'd love to get a Border Collie or mix or an Australian Shepherd. Such smart dogs.

Neatfish 10-01-2012 11:11 PM

Thanks. I took all of the pics with my phone camera. They are pretty smart dogs but they need a lot of exercise or they get out of hand sometime.

Here's my 2. Remy, on the left, is a 1.5 year old bichon-poodle mix and Zoe, on the right, is a 3.5 year old bichon-pom mix. Both were rescues. I've always been more of a big dog kind of gal, but as I get older it's harder to take care of the big guys, especially if they are old or sick and have to be carried outside, etc. So I downsized after my last 2 big guys passed on.

Beautiful animals everyone! I am also very glad that your dog pulled through the Parvo, he looks great now :)

Here are my pets:
Haden- 15 year old dutch warmblood/thoroughbred cross

Sookie- 1 year old rescue kitty

Here's my Aussie Dusty :) He is without a doubt my best buddy.

Neatfish, I can see some Aussie in your pup :) Especially in the ears and markings. I love border collies - what an awesome mix!

I love all the critter pics - especially the horse - gorgeous!!!

We also have a rat terror, I mean terrier...her name is Princess - she's actually my fiance's dog lol.

Here are my 2 jack russell terriers Milo and T-Bone and my cat, Tux.

It's going to be 32* tonight should i bring pipsqueak inside? Cold air will continue spread in across the region tonight, bringing the coldest temps of the season. Most areas will be in the low 30s to mid 20s by morning, with daytime highs only in the upper 40s to low 50s. If skies clear the region will most likely see it's first freeze of the year.

As such, A FREEZE WARNING has been issued for most of the region late tonight into tomorrow morning.

acitydweller 10-07-2012 02:29 AM

yeah, time to come indoors!

Neatfish 10-07-2012 03:00 AM

He was cold I brought him inside. Might give him a bath in a few hours he is smelly.
