  1. amazing that if she was friendly she'd been living rough all those years. You'd think she would have buddied up with someone.
  2. What does the vet think?
  3. Such a huge problem nowadays because there are so many breeds of dog that aren't suitable for just anyone to own, but it's a free country and there's nothing stopping certain types of people owning certain types of dogs. What can you do?
  4. She's been doing well ever since. Back to eating, although she has to be hand fed, but I indulge her because I suspect it's a bit of senility that is the reason she just stares at her food and wont pick it up herself, and even if it is just being spoilt, I dont care, it's not that hard to feed her by hand, so what if she's got me wrapped around her skinny little paw for the time she has left.
  5. Feathie hates having her photo taken but I got this last weekend while she was snoozing outside. I had a friend and his dogs come to visit and even though she mostly sleeps she still doesn't like to miss out on anything, so instead of sleeping in my bed, she still comes out to socialise, by sleeping in public :D instead of in private. That's Neko she is using as a pillow. IMG_4170dpp by kirislin, on Flickr
  6. I saw that too. Very clever.
  7. Feather whippet will be 15 next month. She is thin and frail and takes a lot of nursing, but she's only on one medication and although she mostly sleeps she still has her moments of joy, happiness and animation, so I don't think her time has come. That almost changed in the early hours of Wednesday morning. I was roused from a deep sleep by a dog panting under the doona. I pulled back the cover and poor Feather was just laying there, immovable, panting frantically with bulging eyes and bright red gums. She'd lost bladder control which she NEVER does normally but the area around her mouth was just as wet from her panting. My my poor little girl had got too hot under the doona but was trapped by the other dogs and possibly my legs, and she was too weak and frail to get out of there. I yanked all the bedding off and laid her on a damp towel and then put a damp face washer on her chest and turned the fan on her. I started syringing water into her mouth but it still took about 20 minutes for her to stop her frantic panting. After a while she seemed calm but when I tried to get her to stand she couldn't. She could use her front legs, but her back ones just dragged behind her. I just lay beside her till morning and continued to rehydrate her by syringing honey water every few minutes. I made an appointment with the vet but the earliest I could get in was 11.45am. She hadn't tried to stand once since I'd "rescued" her from under the covers at about 2.20am. I carried her outside once it was light and she was weak but able to have a wee, but when she came back inside she didn't want to open her eyes and the inner eyelid was halfway across her eyes. I wondered if she might have had a thumping migrane from dehydration. I sat sat beside her on my bed with my hand on her chest feeling her heart beat so weak, and her breathing so slow, I was sure she was dying. I even rang and cancelled the vet appointment as I didn't want to stress her and thought she wouldn't make it to 11.45am anyway.. But that time came and went and she just continued to lay there peacefully. Then sometime around 1pm she lifted her head and her eyes looked a bit clearer. I lifted her off the bed and she was able to make her own way outside for a wee, then toddled back in and went to the fridge making it very clear she'd like a bite to eat!. So I happily fed her and since then she's recovered and is back from the dead to her normal self! I know she won't be around for very much longer, we take each day as it comes, but clearly I had it wrong on Wednesday and she told me, not today mummy, not today.
  8. I hope that lying selfish idiot never gets another pet.
  9. why dont you say to him you'll do a trade, you will pay his $50 fuel if he pays the microchip which legally must be done before he sell it and also pay for the vaccinations, worming and flea treatment. :D
  10. If you remind him of all you've said here and refuse to pay any more what's he going to do? He wants to sell the pup, you've paid the agreed price, he's the one not sticking to the sale conditions. Say no. Can you get your money back? Call his bluff.
  11. very cute. Do they go back to their mums after hours or are they all orphaned? And something I've always wondered, what happens to them when they stop looking like babies?
  12. sometimes the failures work out to be the best of all. Marcus wanted me to take a photo of Nekos puppies all sitting together looking intently at the camera. I never did succeed in getting him that shot but I think what I ended up with was much better. I don't know how to link it with this thing but it's the photo I took of them all NOT cooperating and I love it.
  13. this is Willow, who was inconsolable when Marcus walked away to race Neko and Obi. Could any artist put so much emotion into their singing? IMG_3684dpp by kirislin, on Flickr Once more with feeling IMG_3685dpp by kirislin, on Flickr
