Re: We're back up......

No problem! It took a few days as I got hit with the Flu.. ugh. Up here in MN, about an acre of our 4 acre property has been taken over by a pond that borders us. So now we have ducks and geese swimming around our yard, and even through our fenced in garden (which is under 3' of water). Annoying for...

Sleep well Monty..

With a very heavy heart, I want to let y'all know that Monty has crossed the bridge. He held on quite well, but about a week ago, simply stopped eating. We brought him up to a lake in northern MN this weekend, and he loved it. Even though he wasn't eating, he was still happily exploring, and while w...

Re: My sweet, sweet, Monty... :(

Thanks Cindy. Yes, we are getting to that point.. the ABR board in this form is.. well.. about 12-years-old now. Re the rest of the family- everyone is doing fantastic. So great, in fact, that it is a big part of the reason I haven't been around. Roscoe has fully settled into life here, and LOVES th...

My sweet, sweet, Monty... :(

I know I haven't been around in quite a while... but for those who have been around for a long time.. Monty isn't doing so.. hot right now. He is 12 now, and we brought him into the Vet last week because he seemed to have a very narrow window of comfortable temperature- below 72 and it was too cold,...

New user registration back online

In the aftermath of our spam issues last week, I have spent some time to install various spam countermeasures. I have now turned new user registration back on. Hopefully new spam accounts will be (mostly) blocked. If you are a legitimate user, and have been accidentally blocked as a spammer, please ...

Re: Did we do that again?!?!?!

Ok.. ok.. updates.. ;) Quinn (Quinlan) was born back in April. He has been an amazingly happy baby, and is just a delight. Gabe is LOVING being a big brother. He is quite protective of Quinn, tries patiently to calm him down whenever Quinn gets upset, and is always talking about how "cool" his littl...

Re: what the????

Did someone send up the bat signal? :) See my new thread in OT for a bit of an explanation. I've gone through and banned a bunch of the users that have been flagged as spam (thanks Barb and Lisa!). Unfortunately, spammers have moved on to using real people, so the typical bot/captcha stuff that keep...

Re: Running with your brittany

Only problem is if there is something on the road, stick, leaf etc he will pick it up and try to eat it :( You can start training this as well. On a normal walk, you want to allow them to explore, sniff, point at a rabbit, etc.. On a run, that might cause an injury, so you definitely want to stop i...

Roscoe needs to beef up a bit.

So Roscoe is still a bit under weight (he probably needs to put on a good 2-4 lbs). We feed both Monty and Roscoe Canidae- the mix with the second to the highest protein (the highest protein was making Monty sick). Monty's normal amount is 3/4 cup 2x per day. For Roscoe, we started with just over a ...

I am starting to joke with Monty that he is getting lumpy in his old age.
