  1. We have the saline bag "boot" and it suffices. I was hoping to find something a little easier on and off for those 5am potties. I will look up the medipaw boot. Thanks ya'll. Always a wealth of knowledge!
  2. Bette has a dislocated toe, and of course, the injury occurred right before we left to go on our very first vacation in a year. Luckily we were able to get her into the vet. They took an x-ray to rule out a break, and wrapped her foot with instructions to keep it wrapped and no runs for a month to let the ligaments heal. They gave us a plastic sleeve to put over the wrap for when she needs to go outside, or when she goes on a (very short) walk. The sleeve is a PITA, and I am wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a fitted boot or something that we can slide over the wrapped foot that
  3. Thanks to all who shared their thoughts re: my concerns with the angel baby. I feel more at ease after getting your input. I especially will take to heart to advice to not "force" Ursula into any interactions she seems uncomfortable with. She currently LOVES to go on walks, and I don't want that to change. We are going to a mng on Saturday, so I will be curious to see how she does. There will be a limited # of people there at one time due to COVID constraints. We also have a wonderful pub that is dog friendly with outdoor seating right down the street. The weather is cooling dramatically
  4. They both are positive for hooks, so that's a definite yes for parasites, and are being treated for those per the latest protocol. Not sure on the UTI. I would think they would be peeing in the house a lot more if that were the case, but we can certainly check that out. I really think its behavioral. They are on a strict schedule, and she already takes them out at the same time. The timeline on the new fence going in is (fingers crossed) by the end of the month. She has started taking small treats out and offering them every time they pee/poop outside. And she is trying to keep her eyes
  5. So, our sweet, precious darling angel baby Ursula nipped her other mother last night and brought a little blood in the process. We rotate nightly treats for the girls, and last night they had frozen peanut butter Kongs. After they finished up the treat, Kala went to grab them from the dogs and Ursula growled at her and nipped her hand. It happened so fast! She has not done anything like this before, so we are a little taken aback. I can't say we have ever even heard her growl before. We have had her 8 weeks this past Saturday, and everything has gone really smoothly (except for her chewi
  6. Here's some pics of the boys. Meet Step On It, with the white tipped nose, and Sneak A Peak with the little white mark on his forehead. As you can see, they are very happy kiddo's. They are very smiley and jovial . . . and mischievous at times . . .
  7. I am asking this on behalf of my sister, who is fostering 2 bonded brothers who have never been separated and just turned 3. She has had them 5 weeks today. They have not soiled their crate, and do not mark inside, but will occasionally pee or poop in the house. Each boy has done each 2-3 times over the past 5 weeks. She keeps them belly banded almost all of the time now, and tries to take them out frequently. She is waiting on her yard to get fenced, which will help a lot, but in the meantime, she has to leash them up to get them outside. One of the boys will sneak up to the bonus room
  8. I am reading (on the "getting rid of parasites" fb page) as well as hearing (from a GH savvy vet in AL) that some people are having success with using Profender as a treatment for MDR hookworms. This is an off label use, as it is meant to be applied topically to cats, but us being used orally in dogs. I would NEVER try this without consulting with an informed vet, however, I am intrigued and wonder if any of ya'll have gone this route, and if so, with what outcome?
  9. We are in the market for patio furniture, and I really like the look of yours, though it seems like I will be SOL when searching for it. We are looking at this set at the moment. I like this company because the cushions and covers can easily be replaced. Fingers crossed that they are not one of the many companies that are going belly up because of f****n Covid.
  10. We are trying to temp them with nylabones, so that they do not try to chew up the Ruggable pad again. Yep, came home yesterday after a 45 minute walk, in which I commented to my parter that Ursula has been the easiest dog to settle in, without one iota of trouble, and in we walked to the rug pad chewed up. How she flipped the rug up and only went after the pad, I do not know. Luckily, the damage was minor, and I have the edges of the rug as barricaded down as I can, in preparation of them leaving them alone again today. I hate to put her back in the crate, so we are hoping this was a one o
