Pets... dogs rule!

    An update on my dog, Buddha.
    Vet report this morning was V positive. Blood transfusion worked a treat, he's no longer hemorrhaging internally. Anti venom seems to be working too.
    Too weak to eat, can now hold down fluids though.
    Vet said... "Purely because he is so exceptionally fit & healthy, he's now a solid 75+% chance of getting through this"
    I'm starting to feel a little better.
    Can't visit him till tomorrow...
    Fuk. I miss him.

    An update on Buddha.
    He's coming good!
    Still not completely out of the woods yet. The vet is now quite confident he'll be fine though:dancer2:
    Visiting him this afternoon. Hopefully have him home on Sunday.
    *** yeah! :b1:
  3. Bought Buddha home today:aplastao:

    Feels sooo goood!

    Fuk he's sick though, he can only take about 20 steps before he collapses. It's a 6week recovery period...

    Seeing him in full flight will be the best Christmas present EVER!

    So glad he's home.

    Both my kids & my two dogs are at home with me right now. All sharing beautiful loving space & time. Life's good.

    BHQ, Thank You for your support guys, I don't really understand how or why, but a group of random usernames on a footy forum does actually help... it really makes a difference.
    Dogs rule!

    Thanks. My son looks a bit munted but it’s bloody hard to get 3 kids & 2 dogs to sit still.

    Credit to the photographer. This is the 3rd time we’ve used her and she’s awesome. Had a deal going for a Christmas shoot and it was like $130 for 20 full res shots. We just paid her $10 a week for 3 months, did the shoot last Saturday. That’s just a sample shot she’s sent while she works on the full batch, we haven’t seen any others yet.

    So it’s that time in my boys life that he needs a good dog. I plan to have two dogs, but will start with one pup and then a rescue dog in a year or so.

    I love kelpies, dingo crosses, staffys, boxers, ridgebacks, cattle dogs - almost in that order.

    Recently though, I’ve been convinced that one smaller dog might be a good way to start and I’ve fallen head over heals for my mates French bulldog.

    What I really don’t want is an oily/smelly dog. I had a beautiful short haired black Labrador with an almost human disposition as my childhood dog, but she stank to high heaven even with weekly baths.

    What should I know about buying a frenchy, as I’m aware there can be particular health issues to beware of? My partner works with a breeder of these dogs, but I don’t know much about them.
