    Tara: Oh, HUMPING is silly-Cato-boy stuff. I don’t do that! Cato does though. But he prefers cushions. He looks very silly when he does it. Mum says she is going to steal Puggy AND yellow python and Pink Piggy to give them all a b*th!!! How mean is that? B*ths are horrible!

    It's going to be a sad week-end

    The Mom passed last night. I didn't realize she was so close to the end. She was only 44 . I expected to pick him up on Saturday....but have offered to get him immediately. He can hang out with us until the week-end transport. I imagine the household is in turmoil. At least this was in place so quickly and it's one less thing for the family to take care of.

    So heartbreaking! You are so compassionate to be able to do what you're doing. Such sad situations for both people and pups.

    Oh my goodness , how very sad indeed. My heart goes out for the little boy. But this dog must be so confused too, at least he’s got another sweet home to go to. I have to say Marlene , You are a treasure, doing what you do for these paws.
  18. A sad story.....but it's the best we can do. About a year ago one of the Boxers in our rescue went to a "forever home". Nice family with a little boy about 6. He was a senior who had been in foster care for 2 years and although he was treated like their own - he was waiting for a real committment. We have been kept up to date, seeing the little boy and the senior dog becoming best buddies (he's an only child). Pictures of camping, going to the beach, sleeping together, going places in the car. We were thrilled. Today I got a call asking if I could pick him up.....they are in my town. The mother is dying of breast cancer and the husband (who was never a part of the dog's life but tolerated him) wants him gone. Who knows why......maybe he is just overcome with the near future. But one has to feel so sorry for the little boy....losing his Mama and his best friend and buddy. A senior who probably doesn't have that many years left. So I'm going to pick him up tomorrow morning, keep him a few days and then drive him to his new family. It will be a good home, older couple, one home all the time, one works 2 days a week, no other dogs. He will be well cared for and comfortable. But my heart hurts for his boy. I've had to do this a couple of times before. Once when the mother in a family died and shortly afterwards the dad died suddenly. A boy and a girl were going to live with their uncle who could not take their 2 Boxers. The kids cried, we hugged, took pictures and I promised I'd let them know their dogs could stay together and we would find them a home with another kid(s) to take care of. The other time was a woman who had a back injury and had to be hospitalized - her dogs were boarded (for an expected short time)with her vet. After months in the hospital, surgeries and attempted re-hab her doctor told her she was going to be in a wheelchair the rest of her life. The dogs were young and required a lot of exercise as well as being a danger to her because they were typical boisterous Boxers. I went to the vet hospital to pick them up and was surprised to see the very disabled owner in her wheelchair. She cried and made me promise they would not be euthanized. I assured her we would find them a happy home where they could run and play and get lots of exercise. That was another painful transport of good dogs who had done nothing wrong. It is what it is and at least I'm grateful to work with rescue where everything is done to keep tabs on our forever homes and to "be there" when our dogs need us - again.

    Whitby and Heartbeat Village

    Great pictures
  20. I had a foster Boxer puppy (female) who was doing a good job at becoming housebroken.....but I kept finding urine in places that were "strange". One morning I was watching her drink and could see a slow, steady drip of urine hitting the floor. Turns out she had an etopic ureter which was bypassing the bladder. She did everything right - she "assumed" the squatting position to pee (and did), was starting to ask to go out (8 weeks old) and pottied when I took her out or on a walk. She was adopted by an amazing young woman who has handled her problem for many years. It may be worse in Jasmine because she is short haired and more aware of "splashing" than a fluffy Shih Tzu who doesn't immediately feel the warm urine hitting their belly and legs.
  21. Now that makes perfect sense!
  22. "It is a bit frustrating, because she is actively searching for soft fabric to pee on, and will actively avoid the tiled and wood floors, yet she doesn't 'get' the going outside idea. " She doesn't want the urine to "splash" on her legs/belly if she pees on something hard........so she looks for something soft that will absorb the urine immediately? In my experience that is common with females. Males lift their leg (hopefully) and squirt it away from their legs (hopefully).
  23. We have been dealing with the same with our new pup (she is a pug cross, not a Shih Tzu, but it is the same problem). She will pee and poo outside, if she happens to be there, when she wants to go. But she prefers to find something soft - a pile of laundry, a rug, a doormat, a pee pad, the one room with a carpet... In the end we have put a puppy gate across the door to stop her getting at the carpet, lifted all the rugs and doormats, and just have two pee mats down, just inside the front and back doors. In time, we will move them outside. It is a bit frustrating, because she is actively searching for soft fabric to pee on, and will actively avoid the tiled and wood floors, yet she doesn't 'get' the going outside idea. Ah well, she is improving gradually, and can now spend the night on the bed with us without any accidents.
  24. Tara: My Dad loves me, and I love my Dad. When we were on holiday, he understood that I needed someone to Bounce on, and that Jasmine wasn't around to be Bounced on. So he got me a pretend Jasmine I could use instead. We named her Puggy. She is the wrong colour, and she is wearing a red jumper, which Jasmine doesn't do. But she was easy to kill, and didn't run off like Jasmine does. I wanted to Bounce on Cato. He liked scritching and scratching his back on the carpet, and he looks like he needed a good Bounce, doesn't he? But Mum said 'No Tara. let him wriggle his back if he likes, and you can bounce Puggy'. So I just watched Cato doing his silly squirmy thing. And then I beat up Puggy again.
  25. Cato: Hello Aunties! When we were on holiday we saw some tourist pirates from Whitby pier. I didn't like being up so high, so Mum left me with Dad in the safe middle of the pier while she went and took dangerous pirate pics. Dad said they weren't actually that dangerous if they couldn't even get the sails up, and had to use an engine. Haha! Mum forgot to take pics of Whitby, on account of me and Tara and GrandMam and lots of crowds, and it being market day. I was very glad to sit in the cafe, nice and safe under the table. Of course Tara wanted to be on Dad's lap. The next day we went to Heartbeat. And Harry Potter's train station. Mum says I am not explaining it very well. She says that the village is where they made the TV program Heartbeat, and the village station was Hogsmead in Harry Potter. Or something. We went there because GrandMam watches the TV program before bed. Mum says that Aunties who watch Heartbeat will know all about it, and I think that Aunties who don't watch Heartbeat can think about exciting sheep poo, instead. This is the village shops. This is a proper village house, not a tv house This is the garage. This is the pub. We went in and had hamandeggsandchips in the pub, and Grandmam went in and used the toilets and Mum said that famous bottoms must have used the toilets before Grandmam did. I widdled on the corner of the grarage. Does that count? Did you see Dad and me and Grandmam and Tara in the pics? There were sheep wandering about! All over the place. And lots of sheep poo. I wanted Mum to take interesting pics of interesting sheep poo, but she said that this blog is for Aunties, and Aunties are less interested in sheep poo than I am. I never understand that. Wot could possibly be more interesting than sheep poo?
  26. I got a yorkie and he pees on rugs and blankets. However, can go all night and not pee in my bed. I put pottie pads every where he's peed on rugs. I put a blanket and potty pad in the crate and he chose to go on the blanket for him to sleep on. I don't get it. Any suggestions????

    My sister

    Hallo Auntie M! Yes. You are absolutely right. We woz all v worried about Rita when she woz a pup, on account of her being very very very fat. She had a pup name of Big Bertha! Is being a butterball why she got held back and made to do long hair show stuff? Poor thing! Glad I wozn’t a butterball. Cato calls me fat, but i’m NOT. He is just jealous cos I’m posh and bigger than him and can Bounce better!
