We adopted our beagle, Shiloh, 7 years ago from the Humane Society when he was about a year old. He was a tough puppy for the first year and a half between the pooping and peeing in the house and the chewing. Once we got his food right and he outgrew the chewing, we could truly enjoy him. Although he's an Alpha, he is such a mommies' boy. He's extremely intelligent, sweet and tough. If thunder startles him he barks at it almost to have the last word. He loves kids, loves spending time with his canine and surprisingly feline pals at doggie daycare, but his most favorite is cuddling with us at the end of the day. Beagles are the best!'

(There is also a maths question in 2.) This is sort of like a quiz : What kind of small and shorthaired dog is perfect for: 1.A kind but busy man who works on his computer at home most of the time? 2. A nice girl who has a cat and a rabbit and goes to school from 9:00 and stays at school for 6 hours? 3.A funny 16 year old older-brother who plays on his computer most of the time? 4. A caring mum who does the housework all day and cares and cooks for her 2 children and her husband?

Hi.. I had one minature greyhound she was given to me and I had her 5 months and I got so attached to her and she loved my cat. She was so much fun but she kind of disappeared and I walked all over town searching and calling for her but didn't find her and a guy heard me calling for her and he asked me what kind of dog it was. I told him he said a man came by with a dog on his with a purple collar that looked like a greyhound that was hit by a car but I didn't believe him cause he told me where she was hit and it was right from where I lived and I would had heard it and I will always believe if he picked her up right at the road where I lived why didn't he come around and ask anybody if the dog belong to me or someone else here? There are only three on this street. But it broke my heart not knowing either way so I cried so much I got sick and had to go to the er but once I got back home the next day I got online and looked up minature greyhounds and found one in Ark. I bought her immediately, the lady said she would be put on a flight and she would be at airport in the afternoon so I was happy and I went to the airport went inside and told the guy at the counter what I was expecting and he said ok and he said the flight was delayed 30 minutes. So I went outside to watch the planes and then when I saw the plane coming in with Penny on it I got all excited with tears in my eyes and went rushing in the airport after I figured they had time for the luggage to come off and went to the counter and the guy said I am sorry but they were no pets on that flight. I broke down then he said please I'm sorry don't cry I got your little dog and he brought her out and it was so amazing to see her. When I got her to the truck I took out the carrier and held her all the way home and never let go of her and still today I hold her and play with her. She was 14 weeks old when I got her and she is now 5 years. Born August 18 and I wouldn't trade her for anything. I am an animal lover and when something bad happens to one I have or had it breaks my heart bad, like a part of me was taken too. I have lost many in the past. I had two cats from the lynx family with no tails, I had a brother and sister. My fluffy passed in 2007 when I was in Morroco and it was so sad cause I wasn't here but his brother is now 18 and he's slow but he is still doing good. I love my animals and they have anything they want and they are very well taken care of. Penny is now laying right against me at this moment we did our playing and she is resting and I'm on the computer but she is loved. She is truly amazing, I love her to pieces. Sorry I wrote so much but sometimes I get carried away about animals and I have my bearboy and penny girl now. They are my heart next to my two daughters too, which are grown and on their own so it is me and my bearboy and penny girl here now.

    I would wait at least the three weeks if she were mine, maybe even longer just so she has enough some space to adjust to her loss.

    Does she whine when she cries? Or is it tears? If it's tears, Rudi had eye duct issues and our vet had me massage (gently) her tear ducts. If it is behavior our mini, Spud, is a worry wart! He whines and will shake when he wants his way or we, in his thinking, are paying too much attention to our other pets. Then if that doesn't work he rolls over on his back and gives the big puppy dog eyes, shakes his little paws in the air (playing the 'I'm sooo cute card')! It took me a while watching him and to figure out how insecure he was. Now I make sure to give him the little extra snuggle. But he still occasionally shows the worry wart behavior. That's his personality!

Toby is our 5 yr old red dapple doxie weighing 19 lbs. He had injured his back in October. He was unable to stand or use his back legs. We took him to the Clinic within 12 hours of the symptoms. Toby was given anti-inflammatory and pain medication. Total confinement was the call for a 30 day minimum and possibly 6-8months with surgery if no improvement. My wife and I went home with little hope of recovery. We understood the confinement but how were we going to assist with Toby's daily bathroom trips? What we came up with was a real simple solution. My wife made a device that allowed us to carry Toby out and assist him when he needed to both urinate and defecate.The device allowed us to support his weight and minimize his movements with no discomfort to Toby. We kept him more in the device than in the crate. We could hang him up on the patio or a tripod I had placed in the yard. the device also allowed for him to use his back legs and as he improved we could let him bare more of his own weight. We took Toby back for a visit 2 weeks after his injury and the Veterinarians (4 in this clinic) were absolutely stunned and amazed at the device and the progress Toby had made. Toby is now on his own and running again with his friends. We have submitted for a patent at the instance of our veterinarians. The device will soon be made available but for now we are just wanting to help others.

    Hi Bruce, where can I get this or can I make something simular? I have a 4 year old mini-dachshund that is 9lbs and she has injured her back. We are doing all the same things as you but not the device you spoke about. I have no interest in creating this to sell (stealing your idea) but we want to help our dog Lilly, regain her back leg use and mostly get rid of her back pain. Please contact me if you are willing to help us out. Thanks!

    Bruce,
    My dog has suffered the same injury, with similar symptoms of not being able to walk. He cannot and will not stay confined to cage rest. I'm very interested in the device you have mentioned.
  • Irma Oliman - 2010-08-25
    My sister's doxie has this very same issue right now. He drags himself around, surgery has been recommended, but she can't afford it and doesn't have the heart to lay him down. Do you think this could help her doxie?
  • Robert Rosensteel, Jr. - 2010-09-10
    Hello, I have a 4 yo doxie that has both legs paralyzed since last night, we have taken him to the vet and they have him pumped full of meds and surgery will not financially be an option for us. The neurosurgeon wants $450 to examine, $1800 for MRI and we don't know how much for the surgery. We have chosen a course of treatment that we can afford with out vet however if this option does't work we will need to consider....well I don't want to say it. Can you provide information on your device that could possibly be of assistance and save our doxie's life. We would be very grateful for any assistance that you could provide. Thank You Bob and Sharon

    I know this is 2011 but I have a 6 yo black min. dash who weighs 11 lbs. He just quit using his back legs one evening. Took him to vet next day and he is now on meds. I am so wore out taking him to the bathroom and holding is rear end up. Please help!!! This is day 4 and we do not see a surgery for consultation till day 6. Need some assistance.
  • Wayne/Lois Redick - 2011-07-03
    This sounds like something we would be interested in, for future use. Where would we get it and for what cost? I'm really happy that Toby is getting along fine now. Good luck with his progress.
  • Jeff - 2011-10-04
    Hi,
    I,like others here, have a similar problem and am facing having to put my dapple dauchund down. He has a slopped disc pressing on his spinal chord. We can't afford the 3- 5 K for the surgery to fix. So my vet is trying to treat him medically over the next few days looking for improvement or for possible feeling and use of his back legs. If it doesn't work do you think this device could help us take care of him at home. Would you be able to sell me one? Thanks for any advice you can give us.
  • Janet - 2011-10-13
    Oh man why didn't I see your message two weeks ago. Our Dash-approx. 6 years old came down with IVDD and was put on a DSMO drip back in March. But just had reoccurence 2 weeks ago. They tried the DMSO again but it didn't work. He had no bowel control and could only drag his hind legs. Heartbreaking. Sadly we had to put him down so he would not suffer. I am just heartbroken and really wish I had seen this sooner. Thanks for your letter and invention. Hope it helps others. And good luck w/ Toby!

    I have a 5 year old 4 lb chihuahua that slipped a disk in his back last October, and the vet gave me steroids and a muscle relaxer for Nacho, and told me to keep him in a crate for 6-8 weeks with the slight possibility he might get better. We followed the instructions with precision, and it was starting to seem pointless. All I had left of my beloved puppy was a dog I didnt recognize. He seemed -well high. He would sit for hours in his crate propped up with a pillow and blankets
    to keep him comfy and look completely gazed and confused about what was happening around him. After the first prescription of steroids and muscle relaxers was gone, we went back to the vet, and this time opted out of the muscle relaxers. We brought Nacho back home and decided to try therapy with him. We looked it up online and decided water therapy might work best, so, we put him in the bathtub. After weeks of that, the one last week of steroids, and a few months of working with Nacho to get the feeling back in his hind quarters, Nacho is almost back to himself. :) He was out running in the lawn today (a little unsteady/tipsy) but, nonetheless, much better. I didn't have to buy anything special except the pills and puppy pads due to him being unable
    e to control his pottying. Nacho completely amazed me with his
    determination, and I'm proud. :) He didnt have to get the multi-thousand dollar surgery the
    vet says might
  • Adria - 2012-04-25
    *** finishing last post..(my phone wouldn't let me finish!!) ***
    Ok... So I was saying the vet told me if this didn't help Nacho, the surgery would be needed to get him out of pain, then he'd need a wheelchair for dogs. Well, again, everything worked!! Hes still improving every day, and he's the proudest little guy ever! If this happens to your dog, just be committed, and keep your dogs spirit up. Don't lose faith! Give them extra love and let them know you're with them thru it all.
  • Adria - 2012-04-25
    I forgot to mention, when this all happened, Nacho jumped in my lap off the floor. Thats it.. Next thing I know, he kind of crawled up me, and started yelping. He was COMPLETELY paralyzed on his back legs (basically his mid back to his back toes) and had the most frightening look in his eyes. This is a popular thing that happens with little dogs, and its common to happen more than once if it happens the first time. Just keep them from jumping up on things no matter how small the jump. Good luck, and I hope our story has helped someone.

    We have two Dachies, a standard female named Rudi and a mini named Spud. Rudi is older and started getting stiff. She hasn't majorly hurt her back but when she stretches she would pop and crack. This concerned me. One day while roaming my local pet store I found a snack that contains Glucosomine and MSM (just like I take). Now she stretches all the way, she isn't popping anymore.
