Hello, i came across your page when i was looking up a question to my dogs flea problem. Actually, i recently found ONE flea on my chihuahua...I noticed him itching and so i took a peek and i saw one teeeeeeeeny tiny one on his belly I quickly gave him a bath with Hartz ultraguard foam shampoo and after towel drying him i went to check and i just can't find any at alll.. He is a short haired and his whole belly paws and thighs are white but his back and head are tan. So i would assume it would be easy for me to spot the fleas and yet i still have nothing, so im a bit nervous that im missing them because i do want to help him. Also, im hoping im using the right stuff (shampoo) I see him occasionaly itching now but when i look at the spot. i see nothing.
Just a quick note to apologize to you for not seeing your note or responding to it. I have not been on this site for quite awhile. And only recently came back on. Thank you very much for your kind words. I'm doing better now than I was right after Bailey passed. I opened my home (and my heart) to two more JRT's - Izzy and Vegas. They don't replace my little girl but they helped a great deal to ease the pain. They even made me their pack leader (lol)! I will repeat to you what I told Drae56: Bailey has not been replaced in my heart. She just scooted over a little to make room for Izzy and Vegas. Thanks again for your concern. I hope all is well with you and yours, too.
Just a quick note to say hi! hey not seen you around latley hope all id great with you .Barbara
Just a quick note to say hi! Wow, you sound like you have got your hands full. But I bet you wouldn't change a thing, right. Things here are the same, still looking for the right house to buy. Not in any rush to move. Sounds like that I'll be going in for surgery on my lower back. My L4 is in pieces now. Now that can wait, thats scary. Well just wanted to say Hello, and I'll be talking (writing) to you soon.
Hi! Not very good in our neck of the woods. Had a miscarriage October 20th. I was about 9 weeks pregnant. Our central heat caught on fire. And Willie died October 28th. Breaks my heart to even think about it. He was a good dog and I'll miss him so.
Just a quick note to say hi! Just wondering how your summer has been? Hope everyone is well? We went camping for a few nights,had a great time... Like to of stayed a few more nights. We are looking to buy another house, so we have been house hunting for the last 3 weeks or so. Sure are alot of crumby homes for alot of money. Some people are asking way too much! But we think we found our next home last night,,its a three bedroom house, beautiful backyard (fenced for Jewels) needs a little tlc, but what home doesn't.
I was taking Jewels for our walk last night and I was thinking about Peanut, (I miss her so much) she would love that backyard. I still get upset when I think about her., Even right now writng this.
Take it easy, Mike
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm so sorry to hear about your daughters problems. I was in a very violent marriage and I wish my family was there to help (this is what made me become a nurse). Do what you have to do but dont forget to take care of yourself too. Please keep me posted.
We need more people like you to get involved!!
Just a quick note to say hi! Hope you had a great vacation and hit it big on the slots. I know your busy, when you get a chance drop me a line:)
ps: we are now flea free!!! YEA.........thanks to you and the Dawn dish soap baths!!
Hi sweetie, no not OK over here, had our Babalu to emergency vet and he has a genetic/hereditary Intervertebral Disc Disease in the cervical area. ..we have to take him down to see a Neurologist, it can be very bad, it affects the spine and can paralyze them. He may need surgery, won't know until further testing. his allergy's have been very bad too and he's back on anti-biotics again. very bad couple of weeks. I think I'm going to have a nervous breakdown if one more thing goes wrong, I've had to up my own meds just to keep sane. Can I just have 1 month free of bad things happening? Is that too much to ask for? Especially to my babies, I am just so upset, that dog is my soul mate, the angel on my shoulder,he has gotten me thru so much these past few years, I cannot lose him, not now....
Thank you. I'm okay. We had Bailey cremated and brought her ashes home. I miss her. It's especially hard when I get home from work and know that as I open the front door she won't be there barking and tearing around the corner with her tail wagging so fast her whole body wiggles, to greet me. But I have made peace with my decision. Your words were very kind and I shared them with my grandson who looks up at those stars at night, points to one, and says, "There's Bailey, Grandma. She winked at me."
Just a quick note to say hi! hey girl , thanks for the note yeah ive been busy , ive been on just reading mail and leaving, am good , how are you doing ,hope you have a great vacation, you do like us we just go for over nights, i like them better . have fun and thanks again for checking onme. hugz Barbara
He passed on Satuday, 5 days ago. I understand the frustration of seeing your dog recover from a surgery only to have them relapse due to a blood clot after a few days. It's very disheartening. Thank you for your thoughts.
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. Have a wonderfull vacation! Be safe and I want details when you get back!!
The violin is a beautiful instrument to play :) I know what you mean with Chi's, i ony have three and it feels like 10! I am always looking on the ground in case they get hurt or trodden on. But they are lovely dogs and they feel like my children :)
Just a quick note to say hi! Thanks for your concern. I was at a party on Sunday and a young women I met there had worked at a vet's office so I gently brought her up to date with my quest and she nixed the idea about having a pill on hand. She said that they don't work very well, and all she suggested was to have a catheter inserted for the administering of the solutions. I had to leave but wanted to drill her a bit more, like, if it is difficult to insert it into the vein, then what??? Well, I'll keep my quest alive. In the meantime, really nice to receive your note. Hope all is going well with you, and talk again soon, Tjoyce
Aww thanks :)
Yea i'm ok. My three little chihuahua's are missing my dog Zack. They are lazing around and not as hyper as usual. The house feels bare without him :(
Thanks for your note, i appreciate talking to people about it!
Doing okay. Willie is eating a bit more, but run out of medicine in two days. Don't know what to do then, since he probably won't eat the heartguard. He whines when he's in his crate at night and wants to go outside, so I just leave him out there. How are you and yours doing?
Hi Chi: July 8 @ 05:21a
I am very happy that you are so happy!!!! Obviously, all is going well with you and yours. Have stayed off the forum for a
while, but I don't think it makes it any easier, really. It's been six weeks now, and I miss her more and more every day.
All I see at night when I close my eyes, is Becca seizing helplessly and me trying to hold her. The other sight I see is
her lying on a cold stainless steel table, and the doctor saying "Bobbe: Becca is dead." It won't leave me along.
Hope when I talk to you next, things will be getting a little better. Living alone and being retired doesn't help either.
Happy Independence day to you too! Hope your grandson is better. This is also the weekend of hell for the doggies with all the fireworks. I hope my Otis isn't too bad.....I have meds for it but hate using them, only if I really have to.
Oh, and I shaved my legs!!!!!, LOL......and did some painting too.......
Happy Independence day! Keep the dogs safe from too much people food today!
Happy Independence day! have a great day us english dont have many celebrations but....it is my best friends birthday on 4th july lol have a nice time x
Thank you. You have a happy and safe July 4th too!
I wrote all about it in my journal, "Feeling the loss all over again."
You're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today. I'm praying your granson will be Ok. Please keep me posted on his condition! You are such a beautiful caring person. I wish nothing but the best for you and your family.
You are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope your Grandson is doing OK. I know the spider bites can be very painful. Some very dangerous. Were you able to see what kind it was? Take care, and let us know how he is doing. Teresa
Just a quick note to say hi! I'm off to the city to see my daugher but I wanted to say hi first and I've been thinking of you. I still have fleas but not as bad thanks to your help (puppers thanks you). I'll catch up with you when I get back!
Hi, ...you are making me blush again. I only try to help with what I know or have had doggie friends deal with....and I guess I've had a lot of doggies live to ripe old ages, but along with that come the usual age related things, just like people. I have also had to "play nurse" to my parents and hubby, so I'm very research oriented, along w/ experiencing things. I HAVE to know things, I'm just very curious. But curiosity killed the cat right?, lol.....gotta be careful. I just don't want to come off sounding bossy or a know-it-all, and some taking it the wrong way. I really care too much about dogs, and just don't want to see them in discomfort. And I feel horrible for people who can't always afford a vet, and the care of their furbaby depends on their wallet. Anyway, how are YOU doing?
You so very kind!!! Thank you. It helps me alot.
Just a quick note to say hi! Have a great weekend! I'm work 12 -13 hours shifts Fri., Sat and Sunday! Have fun with your gang and I'll catch up with you Monday:)
TY very much. I hope they can get a good home.
