The Boys - Update


Hey Friends!

Jack is still available for adoption. We have a couple prospects in the works, one of which he's meeting this weekend  **cross your paws!
He's a super good boy, he's very smart and takes to positive training really well and fast! He now knows "touch", "sit", "down", "crate", "bed", we are still working on "heel" and "shake". But he also fetches, and is doing a wonderful job of bringing the ball back and not running off with it.


Dante's tooth extraction went really well on Tuesday, thank you all for your loving thoughts.  
Here is a very non graphic photo of the before shot - sorry he wasn't cooperating for me to get a good non blurry picture. The site seems to be healing up really nice, turns out this is a much more common injury than I had previously thought! We received a lot of love and sympathy from fellow bloggers and Instagram accounts whose dogs have had teeth pulled.

Dante is on a soft food diet for two weeks, he is not allowed to play tug or any sort of grabbing games with his mouth.

We're feeding him soggy kibbles - no he is not thrilled about that, but we are mixing in some awesome Merrick wet food to bribe him to eat so that we can give him his painkillers/anti-inflammatories.

Ziva was the best little sister and she snuggled with Dante and I after I brought him back home. Isn't she a great sister!
Jack couldn't understand why all the fuss and no play. So he chose to do some crazy zoomies and chew on his horn rather than cuddle. 



Our "pit pile" haha!

  1. Koira ended up not being able to tug for about a month. One of the stitches pulled loose, which wasn't bad enough that they needed to go in and put it back in, but was bad enough that it made her recovery time longer. Luckily, she didn't really seem to mind other than wanting to chew on toys at home.

    1. Ouch! I'm trying to watch and make sure his stitches don't come loose, so far so good. The swelling is also going down, hooray!

  6. Glad to hear that Dante's extraction went well! Hope he's back to 100% soon. And fingers crossed that Jack finds his home soon--he's adorable, so I know the right family will show up soon.

  7. Thank you for joining the blog hop. Jack is beautiful, I just am in love with his eyes. Fingers crossed he finds his forever home quickly.

    My sympathies with the tooth. When Delilah had hers out she was on soft foods too. I worry a lot more now about hard bones and tugging. Sometimes I think having pets is worse than having kids. LOL
