Re: Adopting a Senior Chow with Children

Bless you for wanting to help this senior chow. We rescued a chow years ago. His name was Loki. We had him ten years before we had a grandchild and had no idea what to expect as he had never been around children. He accepted him immediately and was always protective, being the first on the scene if ...

Re: chow chow mix stomach cancer and passing

I am so sorry for your loss and all you have been through. Please don't second guess your actions. I know how hard it is to let go. We lost our Loki (pure chow) just a few months ago. He, too, was 12. We went through similar circumstances.... in the end we had to do what was best for Loki and that w...

Re: My Poor Sick Baby

I am so sorry for all you have been through. Our dog Murphy was having major health problems and it was hard to get an accurate diagnosis. I love our vet but decided to try a holistic vet (my vet agreed to this and we actually saw them both). It was remarkable...not only did Murphy improve but she l...

Re: Chow Chow lover

I applaud your enthusiasm. Chows are remarkable but they are a very proud breed and they don't take well to "dressing up"... You have a beautiful city. Lived there and loved it but never did see a chow the entire time we were there!

Trouble bonding

We rescued a four year old male chow several months ago. He had a variety of health problems which we have Addressed. He is beautiful and is well behaved but doesn't seem to be bonding with us. Having had chows I understand their aloofness. It is a quality I admire. But this dog seems especially det...

Our other rescue, Frisco, is now .11 or 12. He came from an abusive situation and it took us almost two years to gain his ...

Sargeant completed his heartworm treatment a few weeks ago. I was so concerned about the effects but I trust my vet and wanted the best for Sarge. He is doing great. With the exception of being a little groggy after the treatment, he had no ill effects. Before the treatment he was panting, which was...

Re: Chow + Children

It goes without saying that you should always supervise any dog and baby. Our chow, Loki, was already 9 years old when my daughter had our first grandson. They spend a great deal of time with us so I was concerned as Loki had never been with a baby. The first,thing we did was bring home a blanket ou...

Re: Things don't always work out the way you plan them but its okay. :)

Thank you for your thoughtful comments. I never thought I could find another chow to love but there was a chow needing a home and we needed that chow. We drive 1500 miles to get him and it was worth every mile. He is already great pals with our older chow, Frisco. Our home seems "right" ag...

I lost our rough coat chow, Loki, this summer. I was absolutely devastated. He was a rescue and he was such a handsome and proud dog. For a brief moment I thought about purchasing a puppy but I couldn't do it in good conscience. I searched for months and found another chow to love. Maybe the answer ...

Advice about adopting a rescue

As you may know, I lost our Loki this summer. I am lost without him and Frisco remains depressed. I found an eight year old chow needing a home. He is a male and I am hoping this might be a good fit for Frisco. Is adopting a chow this age a good idea? How do you think Frisco might react?

Re: We lost Loki today

Thank for your comments.

It has been weeks, but it isn't easier. I have been looking into chow rescue organizations. In a way it feels disloyal to Loki but I can't seem to stop myself.

Re: I need your help

Thank you for you ur comments. We are taking it one day at a time. It breaks my heart. The other day we passed a golden retriever during our walk. He got so excited, it was from a distance, and I think he thought it was Loki.
We are trying to distract him And spend even more time with him
