What did you get a second papillon for? Do you intend to breed them? Or were you maybe thinking that Gizmo was lonely when you left the house?
Well, in most of the pictures she's shaved so she might look smaller that way. She might have been a bit small, but she was still totally awesome. My landlords had two small children, one was two and Pearl was such a gentle giantess with him. The other was born right after I moved in and when he was around 6 months and sitting outside in a seat or whatever, Pearl would be pretty careful.
I felt bad for her, though. With two little children around she really didn't get the exercise or care she really needed. Her coat, when they didn't shave it in the summer, was always matted. I really tried helping brush her when she was shedding, but I didn't seem to make much headway. That apartment was also at the base of a mountain. I really regret not asking her owners if I could take her out when I went hiking. I didn't know how she would do, though, and could hardly hope to control her.
The thought of breeding her is in my head. We're still not sure which way we want to go. They say you should really spay them before 6 months in order to reap the non-cancer benefits, so we will see. Having a litter is something my mom would absolutely adore, and sort of one of the reasons I consider it.
That said, if she can't socialize and not be terrified of humans the way she is now, I don't think that's a trait I want to breed into the breed.
Plus, I don't know if I could handle giving pups away, though I'll be about finished with nursing school by the time she's ready to whelp so...
But really, we just wanted another dog. We wanted a pup for Giz to be able to play with and romp around. I feel like our pack is now complete and it's awesome.

Finally she tired of the squirrel and in one motion ripped off its head.

What a cat. Unfortunately I gave her away when I moved to Georgia with my wife. Very, very sad day. She could easily have come with us, but another family was taking care of her while I made house. I found out that the family's children had taken a strong liking to her so made the hard decision.
That cat is straight vicious! Jesus!
Really hard to let her go to her new adopted family, but I'm sure you made those kids so so happy.

Ugh, bad news... looks like she's not regenerating red blood cells so she basically has a few days to live She's only 1, but responsible for making me like cats when I had always hated them. I'll be alright but my wife is a wreck especially after just having surgery for a miscarriage on our 1st pregnancy.

We decided to take kitty home for a few days and if she looks really bad we'll take her in to be put down. Still don't know what it was... just some kind of nasty anemia.

That's rough man, sorry to hear it. But if she made you like cats, she brought a little love into your life that will last after she's gone. Maybe she's one of the angels that was due to come your way.

Yep, he's a golden retriever. We got him in Wellman, Iowa, which is 30 minutes from Iowa City, he was $400, the females are $500..

This is the breeders website.. But no matter where you live you won't have problems finding goldens.. Just make sure you research the breeders a bit, tons of puppy mill problems with the breed which leads to health issues more often than not..

These are his parents (dad left/mom right)



Hoping he is big like his dad

Age: He'll be 12 weeks tomorrow

I thought the same thing, perhaps it's because he's shaved but I still think he's on the small side.. My sister and bro-in-law had a black newfie that made their Alaskan Malamute look small

Ugh, very rough. Our cat's death hit me a lot harder than it would. Don't know if it helped or hurt that it happened pretty suddenly.

Sorry to hear about the miscarriage as well.

Re: Talk About Your Dog(s)/Cat(s)

So my little grey cat is still around, less often than before, and he's got two big bald welts on his leg that aren't getting worse. He isn't limping on it anymore, though, so as long as he's comfortable I'm okay with that. Close call.

AND: We now have a little grey kitten! Maybe ten inches long now and still has his blue eyes. Looks and acts just like his dad -- I'd very much like to trap him and bring him in for adoption while he's young enough to be rehabilitated. Going to be tough.

OK so over the last week, our cat has really gained a ton of energy and seems to be at 100%! Maybe the bone marrow hadn't had a chance to regenerate enough to test positive in a test at the time of the last test? I'm going to take her to the vet soon and see if we have a miracle kitty!

We might also be getting her sister soon as the couple who had her before have split. Sad, but great for the dog

Poppy is the name of my parents dog (was my dog until I left home). Your Poppy is much cuter than theirs.
