I haven't been on MC much lately. I still love you guys, but life has gotten in the way of spending hours on the computer. Not to mention, the Aussies take up most of my time. Lyla is still here and loving it though, and she just turned two a couple of week ago. I even featured her on my Aussie blog tonight. If you're interested in seeing some updated pictures of her, please take a look on my blog

There are two Pems on Tulsa's Craigslist today. I hate that one of them actually says "get rid of." Ick! If anyone can help these babies, please do. I already have a foster in my home right now or I'd go scoop them up!

Hey all! There is a really cute male neutered Pembroke at the City of Tulsa animal shelter (Oklahoma). It looks like he's been there a week already, so I can't imagine he has much time left. If you are wanting another dog, he would be a great one. Now is not a good time for me financially to take in a foster, but I would love to see him find a home. If you are in the area, consider adopting him. If you are not, but would want to adopt him anyway, let me know and we might be able… Continue

Brando, Amelia and Lyla wish everyone a 4th full of playing with friends, making silly faces, or just standing around looking pretty if that's your thing!
Now off to let everyone out to potty before the fireworks start!

I've never been much of a blogger myself, but have started a blog to chronicle my adventures into showing and breeding, and just generally being crazy enough to have as many dogs around as I do. Check it out for updates and fun pics.

Not really, but she did get her RN (Rally Novice) title this weekend... 3rd place every single day, lol. I am so proud of her. She has come a long way in a short amount of time. And I can really see a boost in her confidence level since we've started training for Rally. Now the next step... Rally Advanced... off lead! Scary!!

...because Lyla and I got third place again today!
We had a couple of bumps along the way, but ended up with a score of a 92 (out of 100), which is 5 points higher than we got yesterday! Now, fingers crossed that we don't lose it tomorrow. If we can Q again we will have our very first title!

Lyla and I have been training for Rally for about 2 months now. This weekend is our first show. Today was our first run (I didn't enter yesterday, as I wanted one day to walk her around and get her used to the environment). I was so nervous and she was just loving being there! We had a couple signs we'd never seen before, so that was scary, but still doable.
Well, the second we walked into the ring, she realized there were lots and lots of… Continue

P&G has signed a deal to buy out Natura
, the company that makes Evo, Innova, Healthwise, and Karma. This is disappointing to me as Natura was one of about half a dozen pet food companies left that I trusted. I have successfully switched my dogs to a raw diet, but I still supplement with Evo from time to time, and like having that option available. Not to mention my kitty will only eat dry and canned food, and Innova… Continue

My poor Sky doing his rehab on the treadmill (he's pretty much all better now)…

And if he doesn't leave soon I'm going to start charging him rent!
Lyla had diarrhea in the living room tonight and judging by the smell and the fact that we've had a lot of rain and Lyla is a puddle drinker, I'm placing my bet on Giardia. Sadly the store where I can buy Panacur isn't open until 8AM tomorrow, so until then she's locked in the dungeon (aka kitchen).
To top it all off I have a dog show tomorrow. Brando isn't actually entered. He was supposed to be, but… Continue

Sky and Lyla's bag of Evo Red Meat is getting to that point where I will soon see the bright, shiny silver of the bottom of the bag. And this means it's the perfect time to switch them to their new diet. I have been researching raw diets for the better part of the last 8 months and have finally decided to take the plunge. I never, ever in a million years thought I would be doing this, but here we go. Sky and Lyla's new diet will roughly be:…

At what point do you admit defeat? When the new puppy gets a case of Giardia that refuses to go away? How about when another dog injures his knee? Or maybe it's when the injured dog is going stir crazy from the past week of crate rest and the puppy (who has been doing fine for a month) magically comes down with horrid diarrhea again early on a Monday morning? Wherever the "defeat admitting point" is, I think I'm almost there. Dog-wise (aka budget- and sanity- wise) it has been… Continue

I noticed Sky limping this morning and then stop walking on his leg at all. I took him in to the clinic because he was in obvious pain. The news was not good. The Dr strongly suspects it's his cruciate ligament and will need surgery. $1500-200!! Idk how I'm going to make that one come together without going into some major debt. Today is not a good day...

Lyla "graduated" into the 3rd and final level of obedience class about 4 weeks ago, and has been doing beautifully. So beautifully in fact, that we attend an Intro to Rally class the other day. I think it would be lots of fun for Lyla and I to try and since I will be going to shows with the new pup anyway, I can take one more dog and crate and do Rally with Lyla. So Lyla and I will be starting Rally classes sometime next month with the hope of competing at Brando's Memorial Day Weekend… Continue

Okay, ya'll, my stress level is through the roof right now! The pup came down with Giardia on Friday morning, and while he seems to be "better" as far as stool consitency and energy levels, he absolutely refuses to eat or drink anything! I have tried feeding him just about everything safe for dogs in my house and nada. And you can forget drinking any water, the only way that is happening is when I use a syringe to squirt it down his throat. I am frustrated and tired and don't… Continue

I can't believe my baby is a year old (and thanks to Beni's mom for reminding me or I would have completely forgotten... Beni and Lyla are littermates for those of you that don't know)! She has come so far in the past 9 months I've had her, and I just can't imagine my life without my little LylaBug laying on the couch with me every night.
In other news the new puppy is still getting acclimated. Adding a new dog has just strengthened my belief that Lyla is "Queen Lyla" of the dogs in… Continue
