His new big toy!


K.C. and Bobby just gave the dogs a Christmas toy...Buddy quickly claimed it! Now the countdown is on until it is destroyed. This may take him a while it's really big and strong!

Antlers Antlers Antlers





Your Dogs will love these too! Deer antlers for dogs! We bought them in bulk. They last a long time, about a month. We ordered large, but they aren't very large...maybe next time we will get X-large.

Goodie Bags For All!



Dog Treats for Christmas!

$10 Dog Bed

Buddy LOVES the CVS cheap dog bed and I'm so happy!


Now I didn't say he fit...but he loves it!

Marley and Me


So I read most of it. Then I waited a few nights before I finished it. Oh it was sad, you know I don't cry...I cried!

Here is the movie trailer! I can't wait to see it!!

It was a really easy read probably because I'm obviously addicted to dogs, but I think you should read it too. If you wanna borrow my copy let me know.

Dog Food and Treats

Stop giving them milkbones! Uh and stop feeding them Purina while I'm on the topic! I'm so tired of hearing "We've been feeding ____[enter something like Science Diet, IAMS, Puppy Chow] forever and our dogs live a long time." Really? Your dogs enjoy corn, and meat by-product...okay.

Well yeah, we were feeding sh!t dog food at one point too, but now we are smarter! Dog Food Analysis Choose a 4-6 star food...We feed a 4 star food 36 lbs for $48. Educate yourself!

Veggies and Fruits for Dogs!
Ours particularly like these people foods: cheese, yogurt, pumpkin, apples, and cranberries. Now I'm sure they will tell you they prefer meat, but they don't get that...we aren't feeding a raw diet quite yet...I have no idea how to do that way of feeding.

We Crashed!


I took Buddy for a bike ride. He saw another dog and the owner came toward us...and he lunged...and we fell. I fell right on top of him.

My knee hurts so bad!! I forgot what it was like to have a scrape.

Almost disaster!


See this?? This is the top shelf of our 3 shelf china cabinet.

Well tonight at dinner Behr's collar got caught on the bottom door knob. He panicked and starting backing up...the cabinet came slid with him. Thankfully I was sitting right there and grabbed him to release him before it all hit the ground!

P.S. We only have this picture because of hurricane season and insurance purposes.

Buddy The Chewer!




Will has been leaving Buddy and Jade out while he walks Behr in the morning. If Buddy is crated and Will leaves with Behr he howls like no other wolf. Well this morning was the last time I get to sleep and hit snooze two times. From now on Buddy will be crated.

Will came back to find the furminator handle chewed off and the current book I'm reading, Love the One Your With gnawed on...here's the kicker it's not mine! It's Shana's...so Shana, I hope that copy wasn't special, I don't think it was autographed...but I'll replace the book!! Don't worry Baby Proof is upstairs by my bed, yet to be read. I was reading on the couch last night that's why the other one was downstairs. I'm so sorry!

That first picture reminds me of this:dog

This was actually the first picture taken! It's great. Thanks Susan!!

Prong Collar


I know many people are against this tool. However, hear me out.

I've walked Behr two times now for over 40 minutes and we've had no problem. I don't even have to use it. He doesn't dart toward other dogs, squirrels, or people. It's great. I think it has lifted my confidence with walking him.

Tommy, our trainer said that soon we will just keep it on his neck, but the leash won't be connected. We are using it as a learning tool, not forever. Will is still pretty skeptical, but he doesn't walk Behr at 5pm like I do.

Here are some links Tommy gave us. Some info on prong collars:

Sheena and Catnip!

Even though I clip Sheena's nails often they need to be "filed." They have rough edges that pick the carpet and get stuck to her nails. So I bought her this cardboard thing. Well it had a catnip pack in it, so I HAD to use it!

I can see her saying, "I love this thing." As she lays on her side holding it with both arms and rubbing her face on it...doing anything but scratching!

Note to self: Don't talk next time...

Walky-Dog

Someone commented about the biking apparatus. Yes I did get it...I don't remember all the problems, but there were some with Springer USA, I think...can't remember.
In the end it cost me about $90 with the attachment, a harness, and a helmet for me!

I will post pictures soon. Me and Behr went on a ride earlier, and I just got back from taking Buddy. Jade can slip out of the harness so she can't go, but she hates running anyway! I'll do this more often because the weather was really nice this afternoon!

Our Sunday Adventure

This is the"Oh I'm excited, we're leaving them here, and I get to go by myself" look! Behr loves them, but he was meant to be an only dog. Don't believe me?? Just come over and try to love on someone else!

We are going to the German Shepherd Dog Club gathering this morning at Hampton Park. We are taking Behr only, I think.

***Fingers Crossed***
Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves Behr Behaves

UPDATE: Behr did very well. Once again we were the youngest there by a good 30 years. But that's okay. It wasn't a very big group, but we got on the email list so we will know when other stuff happens. We decided next time we will take Behr and Jade. Although I will be out of town for the next two weekends, then that following weekend Will is doing a competition out of town, so it may be a while before we make it back.

Sorry no pics, I packed the camera but forgot to take them!

Oh Barf...Worms

I just found a tapeworm on Jade's face! Uhh it was right beside her eye. So I began using my detective skills and searching poo. Well Behr went first, I suspected he was the culprit, but nope. Buddy went next and after digging around his poo, with the bag on my hand of course I found one worm. BARF! I would not have found it without digging.

So poor Buddy, heartworms and tapeworms...He'll be back at the vet on Monday.

Rules for Non-pet Owners Who Visit

1. They live here; you don't.

2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.

3. I like my pet better than I like most people.

4. To you it's an animal. To me he and she are adopted sons and daughters
who are hairy, walk on all fours, and is speech challenged.

5. Dogs and cats are better than kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all
the time, are easier to train, usually come when called, never drive our car,
don't hang out with drug using friends, don't drink or smoke, don't worry about
buying the latest fashions, don't wear your clothes, don't need a gazillion
dollars for college, and won't get pregnant!

A Shelter Dog's Poem

Do I Go Home Today?


My family brought me home, cradled in their arms,
They cuddled me and smiled at me, said I was full of charm.

They played with me and laughed with me, they showered me with toys,
I sure do love my family, especially the girls and boys.

The children loved to feed me, they gave me special treats,
They even let me sleep with them, all snuggled in their sheets.

I used to go for many walks, often several times a day,
They even fought to hold the leash, I'm very proud to say.

They used to laugh and praise me, when I played with that old shoe,


The kids and I would grab a rag, and for hours we would tug,
So I thought I did the right thing when I chewed the bedroom rug.

They said I was out of control and would have to live outside,
This I did not understand, although I tried and tried.

The walks stopped, one by one; they said they hadn't time,
I wish that I could change things, I wish I knew my crime.

My life became so lonely in the backyard on a chain.
I barked and barked all day long to keep from going insane.

So they brought me to a shelter, but were embarrassed to say why,
They said I caused an allergy, and then kissed me good-bye.

If I'd only had some classes when I was just a pup,
I wouldn't have been so hard to handle, when I was all grown up.

"You only have one day left," I heard a worker say.
Does this mean a second chance? Do I go home today?

Puppy Mill Awareness Day!

I have never seen this video before. The ending is harsh, but will open your eyes to what happens in this world. I am So naive.

Don't purchase your dog from a petstore!

Friday Sept. 12th Update

Buddy went to see the vet about heartworm treatment today. The vet saw no other symptoms of HW so he said we should wait until it cools down. I'm thinking, uh January? But no he said Nov. 1st. So we are to put him on heartguard and make an appointment then.

Will said the vet was really proud, kinda wowwed when Will told them our routine, exercise, brand of food and all. Go us! (Really thank the pet nesties) Now we need to "upgrade" Sheena!

If you want to know about dog food look here:
http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/
Under Reviews you should be feeding a 4 star food at the least! If you have to look or you buy the food at the grocery store, it's probably a big fat 1....ours was before we switched.

Speaking of food....Will also made reservations at the almost booked kennel for Christmas today! They said they feed "premium food" Bil-Jac...once again it's a 1....premium to who? I wish I'd have heard that, I would have said something!

Buddy...so darn cute!

NILIF (Nothing in life is free) they have to do something before everything. Does that make sense? This was before I fed them...last night I told them all to go to their crate and wait. Buddy was so eager waiting for his meal!
So pretty...his heartworm treatment begins this Friday the 12th! Keep checking for updates.

Behr as a Baby!

8 weeks at 14 lbs.



6 months at 65 lbs.
These photos were taken by Missy Hume in Peachtree City, GA. She owned him at the time these were taken, we never got to see him like this, but isn't he so cute?! I think he weighs 79lbs now. I think he is kinda skinny, but the vet says he is perfect, anymore weight would cause harm to his hips. Check out more of Missy's work at momentsbymissy.com
