RE: Sasha surgery today (update Sasha did just fine)

I’m glad Sasha is doing well and she should be on the mend quickly. I feel for you trying to keep a pup calm during recovery. Our 6mo border collie pup, Hattie, just had surgery for OCD in the shoulder. They removed a flap of cartilage the size of a pinky fingernail. She is now on 3mo of restricted activity and rehab. We have been using the sedatives provided by the Vet to ease her “restless puppy syndrome”. It will be a looooong 3months. We are fortunate to have a good sports medicine Vet clinic in our area with surgeons who can perform this surgery arthroscopically. Mark

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

We’ve never stayed in a campground. We use our trailer for housing at sheepdog trials; camping in pastures (bring plenty of leveling supplies). No hookups and typically no fees. If the event is a week long the host will make arrangements for onsite pump outs and water fill ups for a fee.

RE: What a day

Thanks on my BIL Hope surgery goes well for your dog; we’ve had one with bladder stones. Our new pup (6mo) goes in next week for surgery to correct OCD in her shoulder followed by 3 months of restricted movement and rehab. Waiting to see how well some lambs did at market Monday to help cover surgery costs.

RE: What a day

My BIL (mid 50s) is in the hospital awaiting surgery to have a valve replaced. He has a heart defect which lead to his first valve replacement. His body eventually rejected that valve which lead to his second valve replacement, getting an LVAD, and being put on the organ transplant list (ca 10 years ago). The docs recently determined he needs another valve replacement (his 3rd). “Bad” days are relative.

RE: I must be getting olde !

I had to ask the shop we’ve been using if they would work on a car that didn’t have a computer (my “new” car doesn’t have one). He said some of his mechanics would not; but a few preferred to work on cars without computers. My new car has three peddles and a dimmer switch on the floor; the wipers stop where they are when you turn the switch off.

RE: Paint/ Stain

At some point you’ll want to clean the inside of the crates (dogs can be messy); I suggest you finish the inside (seal the raw wood) so that it is easy to clean.

I guess working on my “new” car will become another of my hobbies. 1966 Mustang GT fastback

RE: Question for DMV Doug on spayed

Someone needs to be the smart @!# Why would you want to hit your pup with a spade (spading)? Now here is something helpful (unfortunately there is no citation for these data) Mammary tumors are more common in female dogs that are either not spayed or were spayed after 2 years of age. The risk of a dog developing a mammary tumor is 0.5% if spayed before their first heat (approximately 6 months of age), 8% after their first heat, and 26% after their second heat. Cats spayed before 6 months of age have a 7-times reduced risk of developing mammary cancer and spaying at any age reduces the risk of mammary tumors by 40% to 60% in cats.

RE: 190 lb mastiff rescued from trail

Seams like this dog was not conditioned enough for the hike. Mastiffs can be fit; search drafting or cart pulling with mastiffs.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

We have our hands full with Hattie. Very quick learner; learned sit in less than a day. Learned down the next day and is quickly learning more. She also learned that when one door was closed preventing her into the dining room to go to the other. She wanted into the mud room; jumping at the Dutch door. We turned her out the front door in case she needed to go out and she ran to the back door to get into the mud room.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

Our preliminary round was late Thursday afternoon. It was windy and dogs were having difficulty hearing the whistles. Lee could not hear and needed my help with difficult sheep. He got frustrated and inappropriately gripped one leading to a DQ. Other dogs were not able to move the sheep from where they were set at the start; Lee brought me the sheep mostly on his own (since he couldn’t hear me). There were many retires and dqs during the time were ran.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Border Collies are a high energy dog that requires lots of activities and exercise.This might explain my need for more caffeine.

RE: Busy few weeks coming.....

Lee ran when the wind made it difficult for him to hear my whistles and voice; the sheep were tough and he needed my help. He got frustrated and “gripped off”. Hattie the new pup is wonderful.

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Unless you’re prepared for it, a smart (intelligent) dog may not be the best choice; they easily learn things (some you want them to learn and others you may regret they learned).

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

A dogs disposition will be dependent upon both genetics (breed, and family lines within a breed) AND environment (how the individual dog is raised). If environment totally determines how a dog turns out there would be no point in rehabbing ex fighting dogs and dogs from other bad living conditions. Conversely, some behaviors cannot be totally controlled by training because it is genetically controlled (instincts).

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

The most sedentary dog we’ve had was an ex-racing greyhound (adopted at age 3 and lived with us till his death at 13). A 15-20 min leisurely stroll on lead and he was ready for hrs laying around the house (or trailer).
