beach towel and put it in the freezer. Our dogs love them. They
lay sprawled on them for hours sleeping comfortably, cooling
their undersides will cool their bodies. Also, put some ice
cubes in the water dish. The love to play with them and chewing
on them will cool their system.
- shaving your coated dog does not make them cooler. It actually
is removing their insulation and allowing more heat to penetrate
to their body. If you have a shaved dog make sure to keep them
out of the heat as they can get heat stroke very easily.
you have a dog that has gotten over heated, wet them with
cool water and give them a cold wet towel to lay on. Make
sure to give them plenty of water. Clear Pedialite is great
for dogs too. It contains electrolytes that will help them
deal with the stress of the heat, just like our Gatoraid

is doing wonderfully. He seems to have a fondness for
men and children. He has a gruff exterior and
definitely has had an abusive past. As he is learning
to trust his super sweet personality is coming out.
Mason is making huge improvements. He responds very
well to my husband and the teenage son of a friend made
friends with him quite quickly. He is still very
reactive to women. I do believe that this little guy
has had some level of abuse in his history. He is
terrified to go into a crate and is super sensitive to
having feet to near to him. Now that we have been able
to handle Mason we were able to get a better look at his
teeth. We don't believe he is the 6 years that the shelter
estimated. We believe he is closer to 4 years.

Spidie Man came to us from an Oregon shelter. Super sweet
little Toy Fox Terrier.
Super long legs on this boy. Loves to be under the covers
and has to arrange his blanket just the perfect way.
05/09 - When I cleaned Spidie's teeth today I discovered
that he is a much younger guy than the 6 that the shelter
had indicated. He has very healthy gums and white
teeth with still had a couple of retained puppy teeth (got
those out). I
am marking him at 2-3, but he may be younger than that.

Emma is a sweet
and shy little girl who will need some TLC in her
transition. She is coming around better to being handled
more every day. She is a shy girl who has not been
socialized well. I do expect her to come out of most
of it with patience and tender hands. So far she has
been pretty dependable with a piddle pad in a limited area.
We have not worked with her to determine her crate training
yet, as we want her to be more comfortable with us first.

pretty little girl, Black and Tan Dapple. Sweet and
engaging. She is currently on a serious diet being severely
over weight. She has lost a full pound while at the

She is active and playful so engaging with the other dogs
well, so I don't expect it to take to to get fit and trim.

King is a
special little guy who has been through a lot in his short
life. He has been here for a bit as we reviewed his
medical needs and made adjustments to his treatments.
He has quiet a history with three knee surgeries, a back
injury, head injury, eye injuries, and 9 months ago cushings
diagnosis. When he arrived he was a surely little
bear, grumpy and unhappy. We have adjusted his meds
taking him completely off of the opiate he has been on for
the past 5 years and greatly reducing the Tramadol. We
are not allowing him to be in pain,but have reduced it to
only what is necessary. We believe the opiate was
causing some on the mood issues and have seen huge
improvements. I actually believe (although my vet does
not agree with me) that the long term pain meds may have
caused or triggered the cushings, so am hopeful that there
will be improvement there and he will be able to eventually
come off of that medication. Going forward King will
need bloodwork on a 6 month basis. The basic pannel runs
about $180 and the cushings test is about $250. He
also will need continued meds. The cushings med runs
about $15 a month. We are looking for a quiet home
with someone will be up front with his surly behavior.
He takes his meds like a champ and loves to go for walks on
the leash. He does best when not coddled, but is
confronted with a firm and loving voice and movements.
We are seeing behavior improvements every day now that his
system is free of some of the long term meds and he is
responding very well to exercise, regaining better movement
all the time. He will always have a funny gait as a
result of the in-effective knee surgeries and the old back
injury, but he moves and is not in pain. We are doing
some work on our hot tub and are hoping to get him started
on swim therapy shortly.
