3:06 am - Airy Elf's Greyhounds & Whippets Kennel

Airy Elf's Greyhounds and Whippets kennel.
Our Greyhounds first of all are companions, members of family and we'll never forget it. It is very important distinguishing feature of
Greyhounds: not only exterior but first of all character and temperament. Because most part of life Greyhound passes in family, with people and our principal task when mating is to save in our Greyhounds quiet, steady temperament, wonderful, lovely character and devotion and love of people, which inherent in this breed from time immemorial.

5:57 pm - Rhett was found!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that the Dakota Dachshund Rescue puppymill dog, Rhett, was found in Sioux Falls a week ago.  Thanks for allowing me to post the Lost flyer even though many of you aren't from the SD area.  Everyone is so relieved Rhett was found and is now safe at his foster's home. 

Speaking of foster dogs: I currently foster Luke Skywalker for DDR and just found out someone has applied to adopt him!  I have had the honor of fostering Luke in my home for the past 6 months and am happy to say that the scared, skinny puppymill boy has blossomed into a happy, playful, loving dog!  I am very sad that he will be leaving me soon, but I'm excited for him to continue on his journey here on Earth in his forever home!  Plus, with Luke moving on, it will open up another foster home spot for another dog in need.

I blog on the website for Luke, so feel free to check him and other dachshunds in need of homes on the DDR website: www.dakotadachshundrescue.org

Thanks everyone!

8:12 am - PETA article mentioning working dogs.
lilsinger_95 This post was originally made by sophiahagia in theseeingeye, and I thought I'd copy it here since it applies.

In a post on the LA Times blog, the vice president of cruelty investigations at PETA was interviewed yesterday. The article mostly discusses PETA's work
to stop the broadcast of the Westminster dog show, but there are several concerning points that the VP makes about working dogs. You can read the article at the following link:
I'd encourage you to contact PETA with your thoughts on this matter, as pretty much everything this woman has to say about guide dogs isn't true. Her contact
info is:
Daphna Nachminovitch, at
757-622-7382, extension 1338, or via e-mail at DaphnaN@peta.org

current mood: flabbergasted

7:10 am - Laura and Mollie's Intro post.
lilsinger_95 Hi, I'm Laura, and I just received my beautiful German Shepherd dog guide named Mollie from The Seeing Eye this past summer. She's 2.5 years old, and I've posted a picture of her behind the cut below for anyone who's interested. She's stubborn, strong-willed, smart, mischievous, and a great guide dg as far as I'm concerned. She's still got quite a bit of puppy in her despite her age, although for all I know it could be normal.

I joined this community because I'm interested in learning about other types of working dogs as well as learning any tips for caring for a working dog. I'm glad to be a part of this community!

8:55 pm - Dog profile help.

Hello Everyone! It's been forever since I wrote on here. I have been back to writing and I started writing little breed profiles! Dogs are my passion and it's been fun getting back to this! I have no plans on publishing but thought instead it would be fun for family and friends. So what I was hoping for is... I am going to post up to 5 breeds of dogs that I am writing about, what I would like is pictures of that breed and maybe a little insight of the breed with your experiences, facts, fun things about them. I want to print pictures of your dogs for my profiles (not an online thing) it will be printed on paper, laminated and put into a binder for people to view. If you post a picture please give me permission to use them and your name, (last name is not needed) pets name, and a state, country would be nice. Nothing to personal! Remember this is just something fun for me to put together and show family and friends. Maybe it will help educate people too ( I would like a couple pictures of mix breeds too as I will add a sheet of pictures of mixes.) But mainly pics of purebreds. Thanks!I forgot to mention the breeds! haha oops!
Akita, Alaskan Malamute, Anatolian, Black Russian Terrier, Bernese Mountain dog.
I figured I would start with the working group.

3:14 pm - Royal Mail launches working dogs stamps

I am in no way affiliated with Royal Mail, but I thought this was neat:

"The Royal Mail has launched a series of stamps to celebrate the roles performed by working dogs in the UK."

10:48 am - schutzhund puppy?

About a week ago, I brought home a GSD puppy. She is from german working lines. Her sire is VA Gusto vom Mittelwest SchH3. I am considering training her in schutzhund. Is there anything I should or should not be doing in this early puppy phase? She will be 9 weeks old tomorrow.

If I do train her for schutzhund, does that mean she needs to be more of a "kennel dog" and less of a "family dog"?

Any information would be appreciated.

7:52 am - Puppy Health Questions

I just brought home my GSD puppy, Brynja, on Saturday. She is my fourth GSD, and I got all of them as puppies. I took her to the vet on Monday, and yesterday morning I found out that she does not have worms "yay," but she does have giardia and coccidia. I have never had to deal with either of those. I know it is not uncommon for puppies to have one or both of those, but it is new to me. Have any of you had a puppy with giardia, coccidia or both? If so, any tips on how to deal with keeping your other dogs from getting them and your kids or other human family members from getting the giardia?

We started her on antibiotics for the coccidia, and yesterday she got her first of five doses of Panacur for the giardia.

She has a lot of energy and seems to be dealing with all of it just fine. She isn't eating quite as much as I would like, but she is adjusting from having food down all the time at the breeders to being on a feeding schedule here.

I couldn't resist posting a pic.

12:42 pm - Diamond's Lamb & Rice

 In the search for a new brand of dog food, which is affordable (less than a dollar a pound), I am also considering Diamond's Lamb & Rice.

Thoughts, suggestions, advice?

There is no corn in that product.

11:14 am - Beef 'n More


Have any of you fed your dogs Beef 'n More dry dog food?  It is a Merrick product.  I am thinking of switching my dogs from Iams (yes I know Iams is evil...Iams sucks...blah blah blah) Lamb & Rice to Merrick's Beef 'n More.  Any thoughts?

11:32 pm - She's gone...


Hello all, not to be a bummer on Christmas eve, but I wanted to let everyone here know about my fluffy girl. We had to let her go on Saturday. The tumor in her thoat was making her very uncomfortable. I don't think she was resting well. She always looked tired, and she was very restless. We're pretty sure it was slowly strangling her. Her breathing was really rough, and she was panting often.

She surprised everyone though. She was diagnosed back in May, and usually dogs with that cancer don't last longer than a couple months after diagnosis. I think her will was so strong that she would've kept on going till she wasted away, and couldn't breathe any more.

A word of warning, if your dog's bark starts to sound hoarse, get it checked out! If we had, we might have caught it early enough to do something.

She was over 13 years old. She was a great dog. One of the best. I was lucky, I had a job she got to come to work with me for 4 years.

She was still catching frisbees this time last year, & this picture is from this past summer. She looked so good. If it wasn't for the cancer, she might have had another 3 years left. :(
