Definitely worth a try - I'd agree with consultation there. See if a triple osteotomy is feasible...

Carissa, def check with the vet school. The teaching clinic is always looking for young healthy special needs animals.

Another place closer to home is a friend of mine. While she is not a surgen she may be able to make a recomendation locally. PM at ya.

Contact me if you want more info, I am friends with a couple of vertinarians in the Monroe area, both are surgens and one does hip work.

Found this interesting ... you may too 8p

Why people own cats, why people own dogs

You may be interested in the fact that 6% of cat owners tell us they own a cat in order to catch mice and other varmints.
By contrast, 10% of dog owners tell us they have dogs to provide protection from human varmints.
Overall the top reason why people have dogs is for companionship. The top reason people have cats: they just like animals.


Cat owners also justify their ownership of a cat by saying that they rescued the cat and have given it a home, or that cats are lower maintenance than dogs.

There is a huge age skew in ownership of both dogs and cats.
The older one gets, the less likely one is to have either of these two pets.

Here's our latest addition. We rescued her last Friday from animal control (The humane society was NEXT DOOR!). She was scheduled to be put down last Monday. Looks like she's almost all Austrailian Sheppard. Also looks like she had pups at some time. Doc says she's about 3 years old. Scared as all get out. Some male must have beat the snot out of her before, as even after over a week, she still pees a little when I come up to pet her. The down side is she has heart worms. But someone volunteered to foot the $400.00 vet bill (which is a STEAL for this procedure) if we would adopt her. So far, she's been great. Can't be trusted completely yet around the kids. We think that because she's soo tired from the worms, that she's also a bit cranky. Don't really think she'll actually bite them though. And - so far when she's been around them, she will completely ditch my wife & I, and spend 100% of her attention to the kids. At that point, we don't even exist. All she seems to want is attention.

I'm rambling.... anyway - her name is Daisy (because she sure DIDN'T smell like a daisy when we got her:eek: )

Yeah for Daisy! Dogs like this end up being wonderful companions...it's like they know you did them right and they want to make sure you know they appreciate it. Good for you guys!

Most of our dogs have been adoptees of one sort or another and they've all worked out well.

OK, pets are a trip! the new dog is no exception. we spend all this money on dog toys for her, and my parents stop by with more yesterday......heres the kicker. whild working out in the yard yesterday, the dog finds the two MOST entertaining toys in the owrld to her..... a dead mouse, and a chunk of wood. :o Yea, you read that right. After I discovered she was playing with the mouse, I promptly removed it and got rid of it. then she decided it was fun to chew on some wood she found. I was afraid she would get splinters or hurt her mouth, so I got rid of that too. I know....Im no fun...

I can never figure dogs out, they are a hoot! 8p

Hey, I think I have some pointer in my "mystery mix mutt" that I adopted. SO I take the dog outside to pee this morning(for HER to pee, not me, I pee inside.the neighbors dont like it when I pee outside8p ) so she dogs her doggie biz and she then starts to sniff around the yard doing her morning thing. so all of a sudden she starts prowling like a cat, really low to the ground, really slow and sneaky like. then she stops, stands up, and her tail is perfectly horizontal pointing straight back, and she lifts one paw and just freezes there. so I am watching this and then I look and see that she is pointing on a chipmunk that is sitting on my garage. she stayed there pointing, and I walked up to her and said "whatcha got??" and she tore off full blast after the chipmunk. she gets to the garage and the chipmunk hops on the fence and starts running along the top of hte fence and she chases. so she passes up the chipmunk, and then realizes it and turns around to go back. it was hilarious. what a hoot!

do other dogs do this "pointing" thing? or just pointer breeds? :confused:

About time i post pics of Heidi,a 10 years old chocolate Lab that i got early in March.Her family were leaving for Switzerland and they didn't want to "bother" to bring their family pet...So i gave her a home.Not many peoples that want to adopt such an old dog.
They even brought her to me with an ear infection...So nice of them!
Also found out that when you move a city dog to a lakeside countryhome,they can get allergic to all kind of things new to them...
300$ of vet so far but doing a lot better,even gaining weight which Labs are notoriously proud of...:)

Just looking at the nails on the vinyl makes me nervous.
My girlfriend takes her nailfile and file his down where he has no sharp edges. Then I give him a nail test. I put dish washing soap all over the hood of her car. Then place him up on it let him do a couple really fast not going anywhere in place runs. Then I wash the hood off and check for srcatches.

Yes I know yellow. First off my cell phone takes crappy pictures and left yellow lines going across the whole picture. Second of all I think this is the best way to see the cat because she blends in.


In any case

As some of you know we lost our Chocolate Lab about 4 months ago. My wife talked me into going to Lab rescue to "see" the dogs.

I am now the owner of a 6 year old yellow lab. His name is "Toby" and the shelter has had him for about two months and he really needed us probably as much as we needed him. He's a great calm dog and seems to fit great for us.

I really respect these people who run these rescues. They spend a lot of time and energy to find these dogs homes.

Here a pic of the newest addition to the family.

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there The children were nestled all snug in their beds with no thought of their dog filling their head and Mamma in her kerchief and I in my cap knew he was cold but didn't care about that when out on the lawn there arose such a clatter I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash figuring the dog was free of his chain and into the trash.

The Moon on the new fallen snow gave the luster of mid-day to objects below when what to my wondering eyes should appear, but Santa Claus with eyes full of tears.

He un-chained the dog once so lively and quick.... last year's Christmas present now painfully thin and sick.

Santa called the dog's name and the dog ran to him despite all his pain.

"Now DASHER now DANCER now PRANCER and VIXEN ! On COMET on CUPID on DONNER and BLITZEN ! To the top of the porch ! To the top of the wall ! Let's find this dog a home where he'll be loved by all."

I knew in an instant there would be no gifts this year for Santa had made one thing quite clear. The gift of a dog is not just for the Season.

We got the pup for all the wrong reasons in our haste to think of the kids a gift for there was one important thing that we missed. A dog should be Family, and cared for the same. You don't give a gift then put it on a chain.

I heard Santa exclaim as he rode out of sight... "You weren't given a gift, you were given a LIFE !"

We share the planet with 400 million dogs : toy dogs, working dogs, champion dogs and artistic dogs; dogs who know what to do in an emergency; and dogs who know their way around a couch.

For over 12,000 years, they've been our essential survival aids and our constant companions.

But how smart are dogs?

Most dog owners would say they're geniuses and point to their pup as living proof.

National Geographic joins scientists and dog trainers to explore the dog smarts in surprising new ways, unlocking the truth about man's best friend.
