Separation Anxiety flipout

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!All has been great with Miles and he was showing great progress with the separation anxiety. He is on amitriptyline during a training phase of 6 weeks. There’s no way he’s ready to stay in the house yet, I couldn’t afford the damage. So, I’ve been […]

Camping and loving life

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

Here’s a Smushface Dog riding in my ’63 VW. He fits in the back seat and rests his face between the bucket seats. This is what I see in the rear view mirror: This week, I only had less than 24 hours set aside for camping, but better that than not going at all! Left […]

Settling in and separation anxiety update

Saturday, August 14th, 2010

Miles’ amitriptyline is working, or it’s the fact that he’s learning the routine here, or a combination of both. 🙂 For 3 weeks now, he goes next door to Mom’s for day care when I leave for work. The 2nd week I would put in him the kennel with his favorite Yam with Chicken treat […]

A beautiful poem

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

A poem for Betty and Miles and all the people with your beloved dogs out there: I’ll lend you for a little while My grandest dog, He said. For you to love while he’s alive And mourn for when he’s dead. It may be one or twenty years Or days or months, you see But […]

My “cattle dog” and Betty’s improving

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Miles was afraid of the livestock here when he arrived. Well, he had a showdown with the bull calf the other day and now has discovered his Inner Dog Powers. Here’s the calf: Miles was in the pasture and the calf came to play with him. He actually was so scared, he pooped himself, poor […]

Miles’ tail always wagging, Betty hanging in there

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Betty is still with me, but has had a hard go of it getting through the weekend and awaiting a radiologist’s report on her xrays. She’s on lasix to control the fluid buildup on her heart and lungs and I’m awaiting a call from the vet this morning. Meanwhile Miles is always a happy boy. […]

Miles’ roomie Betty is having heart problems

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Betty is my little senior rescue bulldog. She was Raven’s roommate for two years. She started life as a breeder in a puppy mill and when she wore out at 6 years old, she was adopted out. But that family had a baby and she didn’t fit in their lifestyle any longer, so she was […]

My “guard dog” is percolating

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

He does the same thing Raven did. 🙂 We let the chickens in the yard to hunt bugs and there’s one outside the kitchen window: Happily, it’s a weekend, so I don’t have to leave my Separation Anxiety baby until Monday. Although, we are doing little doses in and out of the house for training […]
