Riley's Scare

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, In : Dog Care 
Well, now that Riley is doing so much better, he has been getting into more and more things. Pulling dishes out of the sink, pans off the back of the stove, etc. Unfortunately it also causes me to get a little lax in giving him his supplement treats. I had forgotten like 5 days in a row when I left a carton of eggs on the counter while I ran over to my Mom's to have a cup of coffee. Well of course, I came home to egg juice all over the house. Lovely. Riley ate 12 raw eggs. I really didnt thin...

Reappearance of the "Outside Dog".

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Tuesday, March 1, 2011, In : Dog Care 

We had a bit of a set back yesterday; I left Kenzie outside with Riley for a few hours, and she actually reverted back to her previous way of living: disconnected to her owners, not a part of their lives, and living outdoors.

Here’s the story:
It was a beautiful Monday, and when I went home for lunch to let the dogs out to play, I decide to let them stay outside for the rest of the afternoon while I finished up work for the day. I went back to check on them a few times, as this had been t...

Itching and Scratching and Coughing, Oh My!

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Monday, November 15, 2010, In : Dog Care 
Kenzie, on the first day in our home, started coughing, and showing signs of getting Kennel Caugh. I straight away put her on echinacea (1cc, 2 times a day). She kept coughing/wheezing for a couple more days, but now she has been caugh free for three days! Kenzie has also started itching quite a bit on her back/rump, and I have found quite a few scabs under her collar. I am going to try bathing her in the oatmeal, tea tree oil, papaya oil and aloe vera. A good webpage about natural itch relef...

Our New Dog!!!!! Miss Kenzington!

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, In : Dog Care 

Ok, so her real name is McKenzie, but we call her Kenzie, Kenz, and Miss Kenzington already, and we have only had her for three days! She has quickly stolen both Steve and My hearts, and we cannot imagine a more perfect dog for our family. She is gorgeous red merle Border Collie, and I am trying to figure out if she has Aussie in her as well, which would explain the unusual color. She moves as a border collie, and has the right shape and coat texture to be a full border collie, the coloring i...

Tristan recovered from Parvo!

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Saturday, July 10, 2010, In : Dog Care 
Oh, I was so relieved and thankful that Tristan was returned to me about a week after I had to turn him back over to the shelter. I bleached the entire yard and everything else I could, and canceled all of my classes for 6 weeks. Tristan gained weight steadily and found a wonderful home with a family who adores him. I love happy endings!

The battle with Parvo Virus

Posted by Amanda Beasley on Wednesday, March 31, 2010, In : Dog Care 
We got Tristan on Saturday, and had to take him to get tested for the Parvo Virus 3 days later, and he tested positive. Dont you know that that little fella really wormed his way into my heart in those three days, as well ran all over my house/yard. So now I am learning all I can about the virus- treatment, prevention, disinfecting etc.
