Kathy, so sorry to hear about your loss of Arwen. It's very hard to let them go even when we know we have to. emoticon emoticon

Poor Brinx. When they go quick like that, it is hard. On the other hand, at least they didn't suffer a long time. It's so hard. Take a day at a time.

Thank you for the kind words ladies! This was just such a shock, especially coming so soon after losing Phoenix.

It was less than 48 hours from Arwen looking her normal healthy self to being gone. We don't know if there was some underlying health problem that we missed, or if she simply lost the will to live after losing her much loved Phoenix, or a combination of both things.

It still does not feel real. Poor Brinx seems lost without the two of them.

I'm sorry Kathy. Arwen was such a pretty dog, and dear to your heart. It was the same with Alice. Fine one week, the next week barley eating, then nothing at all. It's so hard on our hearts.

Just wanted to let you know that we lost Arwen on Friday September 1st.

She appeared fine on Wednesday, but refused her supper in the evening, so took her into the vet on Thursday for a pain shot as well as an anti nausea injection. She looked worse later in the afternoon, so booked in back in for Friday.afternoon. Once in the exam room she simply lay down on her side as if she were just too tired for anything else, even refusing to sniff the intensive care - appetite stimulating food the vet tried to give her.

We had to let her go. It was such a shock to all of us - vet included at how fast she went downhill.

what a wonderful boy. he is an inspiration.

i think if i was around him i might loose my fears of German Shepherds. one bit me a few years ago with out any warning, it was just acting very friendly and then it grabbed my arm. thank goodness the owner was there or it may not have ended up as good as it did.

i never was afraid of any dog until this happened. i have had and do have dogs. i'm down to one Australian Shepherd right now and a house full of cats (this is another story on all the cats).

emoticon on being Mascot of the week. you deserve it.

Loki the Loko is our rescue dog. Born on Halloween, four years ago, he came to us at the age of one and a half. We don't know what happened to his previous owner as we found him on Petfinder. He came well trained and apparently well cared for with complete veterinary records.
He is mixed German Shepherd and Husky. His one blue eye makes him look a little crazy, especially when he is in a playful mood. Loki also tends to sleep with one eye open (the blue one of course) He spazzes out by running in circles around the yard, barking and picking up and throwing the ball to himself, chasing and catching his tail and trying to get the other dogs to chase him. Until recently, he would wear our older lab mix Demon out. Demon would get tired and just want to nap. Now we have Thor, a German Shepherd puppy who has turned the tables on Loki.

Finally, Loki is sort of a rock star where I work. As a Spanish teacher, I make up ridiculous stories about everyday things to give students memorable things to communicate about. Loko, as he is called in the stories, has had many adventures, including asking for phone numbers from superstars like Shakira and Beyonce, helping the FBI track down the person (or dog) who stole my pizza and stopping the hated vikings from beating our basketball team in the playoffs.

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.

Thanks Sandi!
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!

I knew this had to be one of Kathy's beautiful collies! Arwen, I hope you are feeling better from your dental procedure. I had a Jack Russell who had a lot of dental issues & extractions in her later years; no fun for the dog or the parent! emoticon

I guess I was feeling her vibes, and she needed to be perked up. Give her a hug for me. Hope she feels better soon!

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!!!

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
