I was about to say he'll lick any kitty to death but that just opens me up for too many jokes.

Maxwell needs a silver hammer chew toy for his life to be complete, but otherwise he's happy. He's 8 weeks old and his hobbies include peeing, sleeping in my hamper, and chewing toes.

The puppy is a Bichon Frisé and they don't usually get taller than a foot or so - this guy's still got a long way to go, but will always be rather small and cute. My boyfriend's parents had a Bichon Frisé before and we really liked him, so we chose to go for the same breed.

He was totally shocked by what he read. I didn't think I'd have to explain the term fisting quite so soon.

Finefinemusic, can your little puppy become THE OFFICIAL ILX PUPPY?

The Real Dirty Vicar, Sunday, 20 January 2008 18:58 (eleven years ago) Permalink

You gonna keep giving him the puppy cut or the show-style bichon cut, when he needs grooming in the future?

Abbott, Sunday, 20 January 2008 19:03 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Neither my boyfriend nor I really are down with the typical Bichon cut, no - we'll probably keep a cut similar to what he's got now as he ages.

I asked him if he'd like to be the official ILX Puppy and he gave me a weird look and then tried to bite my arm, which I assume is a "yes" from him. He's in good company, his best dog friends (aka our friends' dogs) are named Arlo and Dylan.

Quality time with Daddy:

Good timing for the revive. Mrs. Hurting and I think we want to adopt a dog from a shelter, preferably a puppy or young dog. She has dog experience, I have almost none. She's kind of partial to Jack Russells (we've seen a few available at shelters), but I'm concerned about the energy thing (they're especially spunky). I'd be fine with an ugly mutt - my only concern is that you don't always know how big a mutt will get.

Advice on how to proceed? What to look for? How to prepare? I think we've thought over the decision pretty well. We're not heavy travelers and her work schedule is going to be easy enough that she can do extra walks when I'm busy with school. We have a decent-sized apartment so smallish dog is probably better. I feel ready to deal with the commitment even if it means scaling back some social activities (we're home a lot anyway). Maybe there's a thread on this already but searching "dog" is not highly effective.

Hurting 2, Sunday, 23 March 2008 21:26 (eleven years ago) Permalink

gr8080, what kind of dog is that?

Melissa W, Sunday, 23 March 2008 21:43 (eleven years ago) Permalink

hurting, do you own furniture, or nice things? if so, are they all kept in a remote storage facility, or in the apartment? if the answers are "yes" and "the apartment," I would advise against a jack russell.

you can get a decent gauge of a mutt puppy's eventual size by looking at their paws. a female will generally provide for less wear and tear around the house than a male. being a smartypants, I recommend desmond morris' "dogwatching" for a decent education on the bastards.

rip m bison's dog.

carne asada's dog is so cute!

i moved into dog friendly, secure housing in october and the urge to adopt a dog is strong as hell. i am going to wait until i have some savings however as i already have a cat and i definitely can't afford potentially two unexpected veterinary bills coming in at the same time, and i wouldn't feel comfortable without a safety net in that respect.

This has been my line of thinking too (minus the cat). I've wanted a dog for years but I know I won't be able to afford a steep vet bill.

Rod Steel (musicfanatic), Friday, 22 February 2019 20:42 (three months ago) Permalink

I can't afford steep vet bills and if I was reliant on them my pup would be in very bad shape or dead rn. I can't praise what the PDSA do enough.

my wife has us on some pet insurance that is surprisingly affordable and came in handy when our old dog got sick , it covered a fair share of the bills.

if i get another animal, i'm going to get pet insurance asap. the pre-existing conditions bullshit is definitely still a thing with animals. by the time we found out my dog had hip dysplasia, there was no way we could get insurance.

Douglas is on WW2 sized rations of boiled chicken and rice until his intestine recovers, but his appetite has completely returned. When I put the bowl down it is like like watching a whizzing blur of piranhas on a feeding frenzy, it's so funny.

the labrador appetite is a thing to behold

We fostered a young black lab for a few months, and he managed to eat the best part of a 12 kg bag of dog food. Like, he just rammed that stuff down his gullet double-quick until he was completely misshapen. We had a trip to the vets at 11pm on a bank holiday. He was so stuffed with food, she was afraid it would rot inside him before he could break it down. So she knocked him out and manually worked that food through his system. Liquid paraffin poured in one end, literal punching of his stomach to work it into the food, then out the other end it came. It took an hour to clear him. We had to sleep in the living room with the back door open so he could continue the process.

Next morning, he was STARVING. You never met such a hungry dog in your life.

trishyb, Saturday, 23 February 2019 10:08 (three months ago) Permalink

not really funny for the dog .. but lool! There is something quite comic about their grim obsession with food. My last Lab used to plot raids on the bin. He'd always be watching what went in and mount a knock the bin over and grab and run raid later. Obv this decreased in frequency as he got older, but the old dog still had a few tricks in him.

Perhaps that is partly why they are so trainable as sniffers/guide dogs etc, in the sense that the reward means so much more to them than other doogies!

put dog #2 (simon) down last night. he deteriorated so quickly after dog 1 (charlie) died last week. he was was mostly chipper this week, though, until i got home last night and he couldn't pick his head up without discomfort or pain.

you know who deserves sitewide mod privileges? (m bison), Friday, 1 March 2019 12:27 (three months ago) Permalink

i took this one a lot harder. partly because i thought we had more time with him and had far less time to prepare for his passing than the other one. partly because i picked him out when we first got him and spent the lion's share of time with him. he could be a difficult dog at times; he was a shelter rescue and he was big on chewing stuff he wasn't supposed to and pissing in the house all the time when we weren't home. but he was also very loving and protective.

he's a bit depressed with the new low sock access regime, the intestine recovery rations he's on, lack of off the lead action and the elizabethan head-piece is inflicting psychological duress. I'd like to think the brush with death has instilled a new sense of maturity in him, but as soon as the stitches come out on wednesday he'll be back to his best/worst in no time I reckon, but thank god tbh.
