Hello All,

Georgine, I know how much a puppy can get into. They will take advantage of anything that they think they can get away with. I know with your experience she will learn not to touch certain things. But for now you have to stay after her. I can just remember when Mushka was a puppy and how much fun we had with him. He is now 13 and at times still acts like a puppy. They are really cute to watch and can make you laugh over some of the things that they do.

Mushka also will lay on the floor that is closest to where the ac blows. It is his favorite spot.

Glad to hear that your leg is doing better and you are able to take longer walks. What a coincidence that you have a dirt road and so don't I. Except that they have cut back the trees because of the power lines. It makes for rough walking though.

Our weather is very humid too. We have been running the ac almost none stop. We do shut it off at night though. We have been getting some really heavy rains and thunderstorms, but the humidity isn't going any where's. I too will be happy when the cooler weather comes.

Hope that you are having a good weekend. Best wishes to you.

Hugs coming your way.

Best wishes to all!

Just took the shorter walk with brandy and that was enuff, I waited too long to go but our block was never finished and our avenue is a dirt road and the trees were never cut so there is a lot of shade so that is where i take her. She is a bit bratty this morning so gets my heart rate up. Then pulled a piece of philadendron out of my planter but I was going to cut it anyway as it is not good for her so that is done. She has been so good but chewed the cord on my hand vac in half. That little vac I kept on the floor lots of times as it is so handy and she never touched it. If I leave the little bedroom door open she will take my teddy bears. She is getting better but will be a pup awhile yet. Never know what mischief will attract her. she is so much fun but even with AC she is quieter in this heat. SO sick of it!! we are supposed to get some rain but then whether it comes or not is the question. Take care. we used to joke about making pillows with all the hair we took off Cookie. emoticon Georgine

Hello All,

Georgine, so glad that you are walking Brandy more often. I know she must be a hand full. It sounds like she had so much fun playing with Alex in the water. I guess she isn't afraid of water. Being a Lab, she shouldn't be. It is good that she slept really good that night. I guess she needs to play that hard all the time. I know that that isn't possible though.

Yes, Mushka doesn't really like us Pluking him, but there is no other way to get the big globs of fur off of him. Getting him wet did make a difference. I guess we will have to give him a bath more often.

Dogs are such wonderful animals. I love them so much.

Hope you are having a good day,

Best wishes to all!

Dot, my daughter had a dog like yours but she was such a brat she wouldn't let us brush her very often so we also "plucked" her but practically had to do it as she was running by. It helped when she went in the lake as it loosened it up. she was such a tease.
I sometimes forget to post on my teams when i am answering posts. My granddaughter just messaged me as her yellow lab, Alex has another ear infection and i have some stuff left from the one time Brandy had it. The vet said swimming in the lake will cause it and Alex swims a lot. We finally got Brandy into the water with Alex and she was following him everywhere but when he jumped off the end of the dock for the stick she stopped short looking down, so she jumped off the shallow side. It was her first time in the water and I didn't see her swim but she played with Alex and dunked for twigs. She slept well that nite!. It is so much fun watching the 2 of them play and A emoticon lex is so gentle with her but she sure climbs all ovr him. Hope everyone is having a good day, Georgine--finally walking my dog!! emoticon

Hello All,

It is bad when an animal gets scared because of other people. I think that you might want to find some other place to bring him.

Sorry that I haven't been on for a while. The time just flies away without you noticing it. I want to thank you all for the support. I really do appreciate it.

I have done another updated blog. It is a long road.

Hope everyone can enjoy their day.

Best wishes to all!

Feel so bad that your baby dog trmbles when you take him to the groomer. You have the wrong groomer if he is frieghtened. I have left a groomer when my babe became upset upon arriving, They are not being gentle with your babe. All I have to say to my little one is we are off to the spa and she becomes so excited and ready to go

Keep on track

Hello All,

Mushka has been shedding for about a week now. He is almost done I hope. He doesn't like to be brushed so we pick him. Almost like plucking feather on a dhicken. It works great, but there is so much of it. I can fill up paper bags all the time in one day. With him being a husky they do have a lot of hair to shed.


I have done a blog so that I can keep you all updated on what is happening with my leg. This one consists of 2 days because I was not able to put one up on Wednesday.

Thank you all for all the prayers and well wishes.

Hope everyone is doing ok and staying cool..

Hope everyone can enjoy their weekend.

Best wishes to all!

Hello everyone. I'm back. My internet has been down since the middle of last week. Had to get a new router. emoticon

Last week we had to have a new condenser put into our AC. The AC quit working. I guess that I can't really complain, as it went for 6 summers without a problem. The temp here today is 99 degrees and very humid & muggy emoticon

Between my 3 baby doggies & my 2 baby kitties, I have a lot of hair in my house. If you want extra hair....come to my house. emoticon

I sure am glad that I have internet back, I was past having Spark People withdrawals.

Have a blessed afternoon you all.

Hugs,
Starr

We use to have a husky/collie mix, and she would shed, but didn't mind being brushed.
One summer we had her shaved right down, and for awhile I think she was embarrassed, but she got use to it. Of course our mini-Schnauzers have hair, so they don't shed, but there is the expense of the haircuts.

It has been very hot & humid, we don't have AC, but do have ceiling and floor fans. My girls have stayed in most of the time. It did cool off today finally !!

If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !

Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!

Hi there. Pookie shed all year round. We used to pick, brush and then vacuum her to deal with all her fur. She wasn't fond of the vacuuming part so much, but she learned to live with it.

Hello All,


I have been turning on the ac every morning for a while now. Mushka has gotten so use to it and enjoys it so much that most times he doesn't want to stay outside very long. If we have to go somewhere we leave it on for him and for us when we come back home. It does make a world of difference too.

Mushka is also going through his shedding stage. It is just aweful when he sheds. His hair is so thick. He won't let us brush him so we pick him. We just pull the the sections of hair that is dead and we pull it off. It doesn't hurt him at all. Actually I think that it is faster that way. In about 2 to 3 weeks he has gone through all of his shedding.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

Best wishes to all!
