    Yeah. She said he's on 9 antibiotic pills a day along with a 7 day quarantine. My vet said if it goes untreated it can develop into Pneumonia . She also said there are different strains of it. I swear it's like having a kid. The closest I'll ever come anyway.

    Funny what a difference a year makes...

    This is the cat from the emergency vet clinic about a year ago after getting beaten up and bit by a feral cat:

    Here he is from this morning after getting beaten up and bit by a feral cat. (Different cat this time... I made sure of that last year).

    Seems like I have some feral cat trapping to do.

    RUCA 8 MONTHS.jpg
    8 months yesterday. Just when I think we can't love her more than we do, we do. I know I'm not exactly an impartial party but I've been around and had dogs all my life. She is the best puppy. Still hasn't ever chewed anything that wasn't hers. The only accidents she had in the house were the first week we had her and it only happened twice. She's just a mellow easy goin' girl. Unlike her human momma but exactly like her human dad. We are so lucky. She's the bestest.

    An open letter to the person who ran over my cat: first off, he's ok. Toughest little bastard I ever met. Didn't even meow in complaint which is why I didn't know anything was wrong for TWO DAYS because he's so stoic. Fuck you for not stopping. Fuck you for not helping an animal, a clearly domesticated, someone's friend animal. Fuck you for not having any empathy. You're a bad person. Full stop.

    If you care, which clearly you don't, he'll be ok. Your inconsiderate car tire only displaced his hip by a few inches. He'll be in a crate for a month, except when I bring him out to cuddle, because he's a good boy, but he will recover.

    PSA: If you hit an animal, you take responsibility or I will hunt you down and cripple you

    Well, just introduced a new cat to the family to help keep the current one company and give him someone to play with.

    So starts the indoctrination process.

    I'd offer up some pics but she hasn't come out from under the bed yet. Luckily it's in a part of the house that's closed off by a pocket door, so they each have their own territory for a bit.

    Fun times.

    My two new Karelian Bear Dogs, Saana and Juko. Going to be hunting up game and hiking a lot this year. Also, Juko sired this litter of pups on Smokey at his former owner's place, Smokey had eight; three girls and five boys, today. Good job, Smokey! (Planned outcross litter by Smokey's owner. Smokey is Irish Wolfhound, Alaskan Malamute and Northwestern Wolf.) received_1626911740756221.jpeg

    Here is our new puppy Milo. He arrives to us on the 26th. My girls are so excited they can't see straight.

    Jaden updated photos  (1).jpg

    The folks who we're getting him from named him Jaden, but my girls settled on Milo. I think I like Milo better.

    Went for a 5km trail walk with some spots that looks over some rapids, which is what the dog is looking at.

    The two cats are now partners in crime... totally adjusted, out hunting day/night with each other.

    My cat is very social, so always wants to be around other cats. Since the new one showed up, he's been ignoring the next door neighbour's cats... and they miss him.

    I'm watching my sister's dog over the weekend. Zoey is the sweetest. She is like a giant 85lb Piggy, all sweet and wiggly. I gave her a handmedown Kong toy that was going to be gotten rid of in a garage sale and I even had some Kong liver flavored stuff to put in it. She has been carrying it around like its her baby.
    I wish my sis and her family were better to Zoey! She spends a lot of time in their backyard and the kids seem to ignore her, but she's been great inside with me.

    So I need some serious help with a dog that has nervous incontinence. My mom's boyfriend pestered her into getting a second dog for his farm. Shes a puppy that's probably 5-7 months old they adopted from a shelter. She has the problem of piddling whenever someone comes up to pet her. At his place she is mostly an outside dog and gets to run around all day, but my mom will cage her when ever she's inside. When brought back to our house she's caged 24/7 unless my mom is taking her outside, we can let her out but the inevitable piddle on the linoleum results in arguments. The dog will piddle on the cement front porch when my mom hooks up the lease. Even this is a bridge too far for my mom and she's now wants to take her back to the shelter and my brother and I feel terrible we didn't take the dog ourselves to train as my mom is just not a dog person. Super sweet loving dog who'd have a great life at the farm with their other rescue dog. Just have to get the piddling under control. My mom swears the vet said she didn't have any health issues that cause it and it's all nerves. Id still think seeing if their are incontinence medications to try out. Im thinking of taking it to my vet too.

    Help please.

    @Kubla Kahn We have had dogs in our family that piddled out of excitement too. For my sister's dog, no one is allowed to touch her when they answer the door because if they touch her she will pee. Piggy used to pee out of excitement too but grew out of the behavior.

    If you don't mind me asking, why is she caged all day inside? How frequently is your mom trying to hook a leash on to her? She just sounds young and excitable. As exciting things become more commonplace I think the piddling will stop. I bet if she got a walk in the morning and in the evening everyday for a couple of weeks the piddling would stop because the walks and personal interaction would become commonplace. Everytime she has an accident someone needs to draw her attention to it and then take her outside and tell her to go to the bathroom outside.

    It might just take time. It took us a couple of months to figure out a good amount of exercise for Piggy because she is very energetic but once we figured it out she was a lot more even.

    Good luck....
