Default Re: Nike and Kenai

Hi - I posted the following in Angel's thread and need to post here as well that I did not mean to be so flip about the tweaking of the dosing and treating by visual symptoms. I too have been treating Angel for over 2.5 years and have a good relationship with my vet and have tried to read up on everything and see how it all affects my dog. I do not recommend or suggest that anyone do what I am doing! So please forgive me if I sounded too flippant or loosy-goosy about it all! OK...?

Take care - Joyce & the girrlz - Pebbles & Angel (&we3dogs@Bridge: ED, Zee! & Concho)

Joyce. I didnt take what you wrote as flippant or loosy-goosy at all. Those that know us from the CC site know what we have been doing and why and how we are doing it, But I thought that there are new people here that can not look back through our threads and see what has gone on so I just wanted to clarify why I, we, were treating the way we are and that it is sort of but not quite following the protocols but we have reasons for doing it that way.That we are not normal

wanted to post an update for Nike and Kenai; Yes its Kenai again. He growled at me when he was laying on MY bed and I tried to get in MY bed and I guess it desturbed his royal ass, so I did the Cesar thing again, not in anger but was assertive, hung on for about 10 minutes then he really did relax and I let him go and he stayed there for another couple minutes. He growled at me the when I went to cut his nails and had to pull his foot out from under him, I layed him down again, we came to an understanding, he wont growl at me anymore and I will let him live....He has been good ever since even around his treats when I leave for work so I guess it worked. He is doing great medically no issues. Nike is doing great as well, going to get her stimed in June which is coming up very quickly, to quickly. Got the Paw Pads on her hope they stay on, had to cut the hair around her pads as I think she was slipping on her hair. They were pretty sticky so time will tell, not sure how they will stay on in rain, seems like they are working so far. Still giving her some pred every now and then.
My lull is over, have 2 more presentations to do, a poster, and an abstract to do by summer... it was nice while it lasted.
So all continues well in the house of Giants
Sharon, Nike and Kenai

Hi Sharon,

Glad to hear the giants are doing well

Sorry about the work thing

I once groomed a Giant that had skin problems. Used a prescription shampoo provided by the owner. He was a gentle giant but kicked my ass. Only because he was sooooo big and my tub and bathtub were small. Wanted to sit when I needed him to stand and wanted to stand when I needed him to sit. But I loved him, he was great and I would probably do him again

PS: Still waiting on our adhesive pads

Hi Sharon,

Good to hear from you as always!

Apparently, the Demon Spawn forgets who he is dealing with from time to time!

I am glad your kids are doing ok. They are so beautiful and you take such wonderful care of them.

Good luck with your presentations, posters, etc. I know you will blow them away as always!

Hugs,
Leslie and the girls

John;
well the pads are still on Nikes feet even after going out in the rain last night and this AM. They seem to work as long as they are placed in the right place on the pads, probably not an issue with smaller dogs. Nike seems to slide a bit but then grips. I think they are working, just want to see how long they will stay on for. I used to groom Nike when she was younger I went through 2 or 3 clippers, burn them out with her coat and my inexperience so now just take them to groomers to do what they do best, and it is worth every penny to me. they look so beautiful when they are groomed with their coats the way they are suppose to be.
Beth;
I have been looking for the octopus, they ordered more so yes octopus for the house.
Leslie Yes Kenai does tend to forget who feeds him, and I am not afraid to let him know I am the King. He knows now but I know he will forget again in a couple more months.
hugs to you and yours from me and mine
Sharon
