Grey Pup (4/9)

  1. TY45 and family, tey are such a special breed, we lost out 9 year old boy the week after your post. and it was his quick decline over a week, and i felt that was sudden. i am so sorry for the passing of Moonshine, she was a beautiful girl.
  2. she has been chosen to go to a forever home, the dad, BOB is ready, but the wife needs to meet her and approve. they will come to visit next weekend. and hopefully take her home with them then. i have sent an email to our groups behavorist- hopefully she can visit us both and help with the human response to the foster dog. she is sweet and is only defending things she cares deeply for. i get that. she loves us and her food thank you GREYSMOM
  3. HELP- now hubby is upset because he feels I rewarded her for her lunging at Remy. by not doing something right after the lunge and attempted bite happened. HELP
  4. so this morning, she was laying close to my husbands feet, and our Remy came in from outside and he ran close to her to get to his room. she lunged at REMY and my husband is really upset and wanted to muzzle her right then. I was in the kitchen making FOOD. remy had to run psst her because i was in the other path to his room. Well when i put her food down and x-penned the room off. she growled at no one in particular. he wanted to punish her for that as well. i let her finish eating, Pete got a second helping because he ate his 1 c dry. he has been a whole other food issue... When the foster was done eating i put her turn out muzzle on her. we have been outside for aftermeal potty and she is now relaxing on slumberball sleeping. i think she is learning, i think she was protecting my husband from Remy being too close. I think she has progressed. she didn't bite him, she did growl as she lunged, he moved faster past her. i told my hubby we both need to read more about food reactive and resource guarding. this is what she is learning -- i have asked her nicely to not growl at the resident dogs. she is good 90% of the time. and when some dog does get close to her and she dosen't react- i say good dog. thinking that will help her not react. right now she is in her turnout muzzle- the first time she has had to wear it since coming here- except for visit to the e-vet for neck pain. but she is relaxed. my question- are my dogs in danger- will she always give a warning growl/ will she get over this soon? how can i help her realize that she will always get food? and she doesn't need to be reactive, before and during meals? also suggested reading on this topic, please, and thank you.
  5. she is growling at the residents while she is being allowed to hang out on the other dog beds. not to sure if we need to put on her muzzle or if the growl is just a test of what can i get away with if i act like a grumpy gus. i have talked with her hopeful forever dad about the possesiveness.
  6. Hello Grey Talk Peeps, She only growls if she is eating or if i am in the kitchen preparing the food bowls. So she knows food is coming and she growls at my alpha dog just because he walks close to her x-pen. I have spoken to her and said she is safe in the x-pen, no one will take her food. i don't want her to not give a warning, but she is in her own space. yes it is new space. But she came from the ranch with the warning that she has food agression. the question is how can i get her over this issue? or should i? she has met her possible future forever dad, and they have no other indoor pets. so he says it won't be an issue. My dogs don't stress over her growling. she is in lock down in x-pen because of some cervical neck pain that showed up three days after she arrived. thanks for any comments
  7. Hello GT friends, Here we go again. This foster has been in my care since May 15, 2017. He has been through the 3days on panacur then in 14 days treat 3days again. four times. he had his follow up fecal last friday and it returned positive for hooks again. i want to treat him 5 days in a row with the panacur, 14 days apart. he has so improved since in my care, his fur is shiny and filled in and his bones are less prominent. OUR group has had lots of issues getting the hooks to clear quite a few dogs, however they continue to prescribe the panacur 3 days not 5 days. would there be any harm to the dog to try the five day treatment? i will consider any feedback helpful. thanks Coconuts foster Mom
  8. Hi Neylas Mom, Are you sure she's not in pain? Could her incision be infected? Is it red or inflamed at all? Is she on any pain medications? the scream happens when we put on the e-collar, soft e collar, or the modified belly band. and if i touch her ears. she was described as 'making a weird noise' at the ranch. before she come to foster home. we haven't done anything to her today, and there has been no GSOD well actually i was laying with her in the xpen and brushing out more of her winter fur, she likes grooming she was taking Tramadol until her last pill yesterday. she is not licking at it so much today- it is not red or even pink- it looks like it is healing well. i think we have a special princess
  9. I have a Daphnie- aka Daffy is - my new foster and she was fine- she had her spay this week tuesday, she returned here foster home, and was fine until yesterday- she has started to lick at the incision site. I have checked it is not pink or red, the stitches and the incision look fine, she has cleaned off all the previously flaky blood. she has started to respond with GSOD - it began when i tried to check her hears, i had asked that they clean them while she was under sedation, because i attempted to clean the gook last week and she yelped and cried like she had severe issues. Since she returned on wednesday from the vet i tried to look at her newly cleaned ears, but she wanted nothing to do with that. she screamed i left them alone. so she is training me to not look at her ears. well i need to fix this. she will let me touch her toes, and she likes grooming - i have nubby mitts and she seems to like being brushed- she is blowing off all her Kansas winter fur, since moving to Arizona she won't need that under coat. what can i do to keep her from licking her sutures?
  10. Hello Greytalkers. com my new foster was said to have this weird noise she made when she was happy at the Lazy Grey Ranch. This is where the new dogs for our group are boarded until they can be vetted and cat tested. well my new girl Daffy was fine until last night, she has started to lick her incision area, probably due to it being itchy. she didn't bother it upon return from surgery on Wednesday this week and we are now 4 days post spay I applied some hydrocortisone topical to her belly avoiding the stitches. I have tried to cover her incision with a modified belly band- but that caused the GSOD to insue. I took it off. but after a little while of her trying to lick again, I made her stand up, which had now become an issue of needing to put the leash on her to make her stand up. I put the belly band around her but loosely she tolerated it, and walked very gingerly while on the leash outside to go potty. now today this has continued and gotten more severe- so i came to see if this is a thing- because she is young she will be 2 in June- she arrived in Arizona from a KS farm. SO my next call or email will be to the Animal behaviorist our group uses so she can help me help this scared dog. any tips?? besides the desensitizing article i read in this thread. She is perfectly content to be enclosed in the x-pen. the scream started when i tried to look at her ears. She got me to stop trying to look at them and has since used the scream more, so many times today it is concerning. thanks for any help or tips for this new foster baby Peggy in /tucson
  11. My parents had a girl dog that never liked me. that was when i still smoked cigarettes. maybe they smoke?
  12. Hey KickReturn, so happy to see the results of Honor's xray!! at my house today the foster bit Remy in the head. now he has a bloody ear. and his limping is worse today. so i have to get his x-ray this week. i hope i get good news too.
  13. Hi Jamie, I'l probably be in the minority, but I am all for euthinasia earlier. All the medications and treatments are for naught. They will still be gone too young. Open your heart and home to a younger hound that is newly retired. hugs.
  14. Hi KickReturn, thank you for asking what I have been wondering in my head for a couple of weeks. My boy Remy has had a front left leg limp. it comes and goes. the last couple of weeks it's been more evident. i know his lineage has some cancer and i dread getting the diagnosis. i have checked his pads, toes, wrist, he sleeps on the king size bed all day and on a xl twin bed at night. he just avoids dog beds becase he is a special dog. it took him years to get over being a spook, the adaptil plug ins and collar worked wonders for him. he still likes to run laps around the yard, he wants to go for walks, the limp is only pronounced right after he get up from sleeping. i appreciate your asking and the answers from everyone.
