Kathy...so sorry on your loss of Phoenix.

it is so hard to loose our beloved fur babies. i am fortunate that i can bring my fur babies back home and bury them on the property. when i had to let my Kiwi go last year we brought her body home and left Panda smell her and i think she understood. when she was done smelling Kiwi's body she walked away. she actually did better than i thought she would. also we have several cats and one of those guys has taken to Panda and he just snuggles right up with her.

Hugs to you and Jeanne on your loss.

How perfect that Alice is our mascot! Jeanne I am so, so sorry to hear your news about your sweet girl.

I know our Phoenix will have been there along with her good buddy Sarge. to welcome her when she crossed The Bridge.

We had to let Phoenix go 3 weeks ago today - on June 26th. We're still finding it hard to believe that he's gone. The other two are struggling - especially Arwen - sure wish there was a way to explain to them where their best buddy is.

Yes, he was pretty happy with how her mouth is healing at this point and felt there was no need to extend the anti - biotics any longer. I'm to call them on Monday just let them know if the extraction site is still looking okay.

It certainly has NOT interfered for a single solitary second with her willingness and ability to eat! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks Ronda!

She really WAS pretty back then - she's about 3 in this picture, and very, very pregnant too.

Now at 11 1/2 she is a beautiful but very grey, grizzled old lady ,yet still moves like a dream when she wants to keep "Dangerous " things away from her yard - you know, birds, squirrels, bunnies, oh and ... people who dare to walk behind her fence!
Then she limps slowly back into the house because she forgets how old and arthritic she really is. Silly old dog! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Arwen says THANKS for the lovely compliments and well wishes from all of you!

She is off to the vet on Thursday morning for a re-check on the one extraction site which has not been healing as well as it should have.

ALL 3 of the beasties have had dental surgery since the start of this year. It's very frustrating to say the least - never mind the immense pain in my wallet!

Jeanne, thank you so much for selecting our sweet old girl to be the new team mascot! It is truly an honour!

Arwen just had dental surgery this past Monday, and has been having some healing issues where one of her teeth was extracted, so is not at her best right now, but she too says THANK YOU for picking her!!!

You're right Sandi - they did react in a very honorable way. We've been really pleased with the company and their food - dogs like the food too! emoticon

Wow, Kathy, that company did do what they all should do!!! Certainly not ignore the problem or act like they aren't responsible.

That's how a company should be. We have never had that problem (knock on wood), but I know others have.

Ladies - Not only did Blue Buffalo not support us at all, but they continually and very vehemently denied any responsibility or culpability for nearly killing Phoenix, and causing all the damages to his system that went with it.....

On the other hand, when we had a problem last fall with the food we use now things were 100% different! We figured out what the problem was on Friday afternoon of a holiday weekend - emailed both the Canadian distributor, the company itself, and let the store know as well. We did NOT expect to hear anything before middle of the following week

HOWEVER...... by Monday we'd heard back from the company, the store had given us a full refund plus a coupon for a free 40 lb bag, and by Tuesday lunchtime the Canadian distributor had also responded!! We got coupons for free 40 lb bags from both the company and distributor, were told they had both started files on our behalf, asked if we would send each of them a sample of the food - postage to be paid by them.

AND - the company said they would reimburse us for any out of pocket expenses - vet, blood work, other testing as desired by our vet, but first and foremost they expressed their concern for Brinx and Arwen, wanted to be sure they were both okay! We also had emails from the company as well as the Canadian distributor several times over the next couple of months, again wanting to be sure that the dogs were not showing any delayed signs of health issues.

What a difference in how one company treats their customers and cares about their products!!!

Great news about Alice. I was thinking about her earlier.

That's so scary with what happened to Phoenix and of course the company will never admit fault.

Lol. Poor Phoenix. Alice won't take her pills. Not wrapped in any type of food, so Dennis has to put it down her throat. She looks so sad. Why do they make it so hard? lol

Phoenix has had a cough off and on now for months, so he gets BENALYN cough medicine whenever it's bad. The vets diagnosed him with "old dog lung" - something I'd never heard of before but don't think the cough is caused by that..... Another one of his "Mystery Ailments" as we and the vets call them!

He sees Meaganne coming with the syringe and the benalyn bottle and firmly clamps his jaws as tight as possible - he hates the stuff big time! The faces he pulls after getting it are priceless, BUT it does help so he gets no choice in the matter.

Love those names. Hope you can use them some day. I agree, Carol was a blessing for us all. I'm sure she is one of our Angels now!

Alice is doing better thanks. Barley coughing at all. She had a re-check Thurs. The Vet was pleased with her progress. Next month we will have the blood work done, then go from there for possible surgery. Hugs to you and all of your fur babies.

Our first female had the 2 kennel names along with SPIRIT as her registered name, and every single Collie I've kept since (other than 2 who really were not supposed to stay...) have all had some form of the word SPIRIT in their registered names. So I had thought of using things like Spirited Mystique, Mystical Spirit, or Esprit de Mystique to combine that tradition with Carol's user name here.

It's amazing that someone you only know so briefly, and solely via cyberspace can have such an impact on your life - and so many years later. I do indeed still miss her very much.


How is Alice this week?

You sound like me. I had been with Spark People just 6 months, if that. Carol and I just hit it off, and she asked me to be a leader. She did love animals so much. She had just gotten a puppy herself. I felt bad for her Hubby, and Daughter, but also the puppy. They don't always understand why someone has left them.

Funny, because I thought of using the name Myst if I get a female dog or cat. Like you, someday I will get another dog. Right now isn't the right time though. I wonder if her Daughter put Carol's page to private. Too bad for us. As we enjoyed dropping a note to Carol. She can hear us if we talk to her though, and I often do that. I too saved her profile pic!

She WAS indeed an incredibly caring person, wasn't she! January 27th - yesterday - was the 8th anniversary of when my Lucky left for the Rainbow Bridge, and Carol was one of the 2 main reasons I made it through that whole time. I had just started on Sparks a few months earlier, literally only o couple of weeks before we learned that Luck had some major health issues and Carol was the first person to offer support, understanding and her love.

I think of her often, too and still really miss her for so many reasons - her sense of humour, her willingness to 'do battle' for those about whom she cared, but I think most of all because she always seemed willing to just LISTEN without judging!

Losing her so close to Lucky's passing was a double blow for me, I wrote down her user name, and several variations of it to use as possible registered names for our next new beastie - no new additions to the furballs as yet, but I do still have that piece of paper tucked away safely for use whenever we have a new youngster to add to the group.

I also put a few goodies on her page too, but haven't been able to do that for some time now , but I still have her profile pic in my list of friends.

Poor Phoenix. I too am glad he is still with you, not like the other poor dogs that died. I remember the law suit. They do sound nervy. So sad when the all mighty dollar is more important then the pets that suffered. I hope they cleaned up their act, but not going to hold my breath.

I have been thinking of MYSTIQUEMYSTIC a lot lately. I still miss her. She was the first close friend I made in here, and the one that got me into the leader end of it. Once in a blue moon I would leave a spark goody on her page, but now I can't get to it. Bummer.

That's GREAT news about Alice, Jeanne!!! I'm so happy for all of you! I'm still keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers.

The Blue Buffalo essentially poisoned Phoenix. He started having Grand Mal seizures roughly a month after starting on the food, which continues off and on the whole time we used it - but he could eat the other 'flavour' of their food that we were feeding Arwen and Brinx - or so we thought....

About 2 years into it, we had a new bag of his food, about 2 weeks after opening it he started vomiting several hours after eating. Put him immediately onto the other guys' bag and all symptoms stopped within less than 6 hours. We let the company know, offered to send them a sample - which they refused, and subsequently returned the bag to the store where we bought it.

Checked the batch numbers and expiry date as usual, on the replacement bag to make sure it was from a different lot. Out initial thought was that perhaps something had been changed either in the formulation or manufacturing process and that he was just simply having a reaction to that.

HOWEVER.... less than 3 days into this new bag and the vomiting started up again, only much worse , so contacted the company again - again offered to send them a sample which was again refused because "There was absolutely NOTHING wrong with their food, and we were the only people to have any issues with it, so it was obviously our fault".....

Switching Phoenix over to the food the other guys were getting didn't work this time, and they were showing similar symptoms so took everyone into the vets for testing in case it was some sort of viral thing. Nothing showed up at all, other than Phoenix's blood work was off in a variety of areas.

By this point it was becoming chronic, so we went through several different brands of food, before ending up cooking all of his food ourselves using a very bland diet recommended by the vet in the hopes of giving his 'gut' time to heal.

Interestingly the last seizure he had was less than 6 weeks after the last meal of Blue Buffalo!!! Coincidence?? I do not believe that for one minute - just can't prove it. About 6 or so months after we started using other products, Blue Buffalo was involved in a major class action law suit where animals had died, or had more long term issues, most with exactly the same symptoms that Phoenix had.

We were just lucky enough to have the knowledge and experience to know what to do - like stop using the food immediately and getting him to the vet in a timely manner. the company actually had the nerve to send Meaganne an email last year stating that if we sent them proof of purchase / original receipts they would issue her a refund of up to $200, or $20 if she couldn't supply the proof....... as if I would still have anything after 3+ years.

It still makes me crazy when I see their ads - TV ones in particular, where supposed pet owners are so impressed by the 'quality ' of the Blue Buffalo foods compared to other brands they show in the commercial.

Thankfully, Phoenix did survive the whole ordeal, but it definitely has left him with a much weakened immune system, as well as some neurological damage to boot, which was caused by all the seizures.

I barley remember the Blue Buffalo ordeal. What was wrong with the food? They advertise like they are one of the top brands.

Alice is doing much better thanks. We went for a hike today, and she couldn't go. She was so sad. I will tell you what the Vet says tomorrow. emoticon
p.s. Hugs for Phoenix!

Jeanne - Phoenix has his good days and his bad ones, but he LOOKS pretty good. He's fairly 'senile' - gets lost in the corner every so often and sometimes when he wakes up suddenly you see he's confused by the blank look in his eyes, but then there are just as many times when you see the younger Phoenix in there as well.

His rear end is very wobbly, mostly due to the nerve damage in one back leg / foot from all the seizures he had from the Blue Buffalo food, but he still periodically makes it all the way out to back corners of the yard most days - then can't hear us calling him to come isdoors emoticon emoticon

Hope that Alice is feeling okay and has a great report from the vet! Hugs to both of you, and Munchie too!

Sarge probably wants Alice up at the Rainbow Bridge to play but he will have to wait, Alice needs to stay here longer!

We aren't sure of Zoey's age since she was a rescue but we think she will be 12 this year. Most days she has the energy of a pup and others she sleeps more.

Jeanne - So sorry to hear that your beautiful Alice has not been feeling her best. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers!

Phoenix says she can come and wander aimlessly around the yard with him - he gets 'lost' out there every so often nowadays, and has to be reminded just why he's out there in the first place, but for an old geezer who has scared us to death 3 times in the last 5 months, he looks pretty good.

Every day with each and every one of our beasties is always such a gift, but even more so with these really old ones. Take lots of new photos of Alice, and remind her how much she is loved!

Alice is a beauty! Hugs and prayers for the both of you.

Our new mascot is our dear Alice. She turned 12 last week. We had her at the Vet two days ago due to coughing. She has Bronchitis, so she has to take it easy for the next two weeks.
2 yrs. ago she had a tumor removed from her side. It was low grade cancer, and we were so hoping it wouldn't come back. She has a new bump on her side, and it is hard. Our Vet is concerned. If Alice's blood work comes back good, then she will be having surgery again. Let's all give Alice moral support so she can pull through all of this, and be her ol self again.

Thanks all! Sadie is greatly honored to be Mascot of this great team! She is my little sweetie.

I have had Sadie since she was 6 weeks old. She is 4 years old now and still loves to chase tennis balls as much as she did when she was a puppy. This picture was taken on vacation in Colorado - hiking is another of her favorite things.
