Saw you question about dog vests.  We have one, used it once, dog does not like swimming at all.  Be careful when closing the zipper, it pinched our dog's skin and caused a skin problem.  Would really prefer a different fastener if we were to use it again.

Rodney, thank you for your friend request. My vet is Dr. Wander, he is located in Boca Raton, between Palmetto and Powerline. Here is some info on him and his location:

Rodney ~ I saw your discussion "same saga" and my thought is that if you are feeding her the vet food at this time, continue on for a couple of weeks to see if it does make a difference.  If it does, yeah keep her on it.  After she matures, you can then try to slowly transition over to a recommended food.  I think so many of the recommended foods seem to be too rich (or something) for some dogs.  My friend has since transitioned over to Wellness Core and her doggy is doing just fine.  Good Luck!

Thanks Rodney - I am actually working on that, it's a process though.

Take care

I am sorry I just saw this question with friend request.  Yes we do live in Palestine, it is the southern end of the state, Palatine is up north.  Palestine is the first town in Illinois and has quite a history by we are a very small town.

Thanks for the friend request.  Derby is such a cutie pie.  I am sure that she stops traffic wherever you go.

I just read your comment.  For my fun backgrounds I use

I click on backgrounds and when that pops up, I scroll down and click on backgrounds and then type in the theme I am looking for.  When I find one I like, I click on it.  Most of them can be copied to your page in the 'Advanced' section (make sure that what is on there is deleted).  Have fun playing around.

Thank you for the friend request. How lucky that you have so many grandchildren.  I have only one.  Derby doodle is truly darling

Doodles can bring out the Crazeees

Having been cooped up in the house for 6 days with a small bout of pneumonia....on day #7 DerbyDoodle & I bolted for some freedom & retail therapy. But first in trying to keep with her training program since leaving Markay training ....I decided to meet DH for a quick lunch. She joined us outside at a local restaurant. Where she laid on the concrete like a perfect angel for apprx 40 min. This was our first time taking her to a restaurant since her "polite dog switch was flipped on by… Continue

Boot Camp recruit returns home

DerbyDoodle was brought back home today by the amazing trainer (Liz) who runs Markay Dog training facility. I wasn't sure what to expect...I didn't want to raise my expectations to high and then get disappointed. The trainer had great personal recs but I felt DerbyDoodle was a little over the top dominant...she politely explained some of the issues I was having with DerbyDoodle were related to the prong collar...I had it on her incorrectly!! Also Liz felt she was experiencing a correction from… Continue

Epilogue to this Dood is an amazing traveler

Posted on May 28, 2013 at 10:00pm 7 Comments

We left NYC late this was a nasty weather day there. Derby's big preoccupation was not to allow me to get out of her sight...I think she knew something was up. My Maltese was never allowed on the bed..DH rules..but if he was out of town I always broke the rules..and this is the G-ds honest truth..she always knew when he was out of town even if he never packed a suitcase as opposed to nites when he came home at a late hr. SO I don't doubt that DerbyDoodle knew travel was imminent… Continue

I recently saw a piece on DK where the writer was explaining the Yiddish word KVELL. So, without being too redundant..I will translate the word as meaning: to Gush with enormous pride over someone close to you & their accomplishments. Just like a picture one word can say a, I want o KVELL a little about DerbyDoodle.

in the short span of 7 days she left her hometown roots in Fla. for the unseasonably cold weather in only leave there after 6 days to fly to NYC.… Continue
