Re: Introducing my precious Patience!

Patience was a beautiful girl and I truly understand how her loss affects you. We lost our Mimi in late January to stomach cancer. The house was too quiet and I started a search for another chow girl. We soon found Reba at Chowland Rescue of North Carolina and drove 1000 miles round trip to get her ...

Mimi the Katrina Rescue

I read the forum frequently but rarely post. Our Mimi was first introduced to this forum in June 2007. In December 2005 Mimi was rescued by the SPCA in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. In April 2007 we adopted her from a no-kill shelter in Lafayette, LA after losing our first Chow mix to kidney ...

Re: Microchip...Yea or Nea

The shelter we adopted Mimi from microchipped her before we could bring her home. She hasn't had any problems with it. A hand scanner at the vet's office verified it works properly. Since Mimi is a Katrina rescue I feel better knowing the microchip gives her a chance to return to us should we get se...

Re: "You don't want a Chow Chow. They're not nice dogs."

We have had 2 chows. The first came to us as a stray puppy and had to share her home with 8 cats. Absolutely no problems. The second was adopted at approximately 5 years old and moved in with 5 cats. Again, the normal adjustments but no problems. And I agree, find another vet. I would have doubts if...

Mimi

Mimi has had a busy year so far. She played in the snow, had to wear a hillbilly costume, relaxed with little friends, and had her portrait done by my mother. Enjoy the pictures.

Re: Benny has moved to the Rainbow Bridge

We met Jerry, Benny, and Lady at Bama's Chowfest. Benny was so laid-back and not bothered by all the other dogs and people. You could tell he was content with his life. Our condolences for the loss of such a gentle dog.

Re: Questions about adopting adult chows

I'm sorry for the loss of your chow. I can only speak about our 2 female chows. The first girl, Meka, was a stray puppy about 12 weeks old. Her personality was the typical aloof, not so friendly chow. She was fine with my husband and I, but rarely sought attention from our guests. She did not care f...

Re: Tent camping advise

Barb, We switched from a tent to a Scamp 5th wheel (19') fiberglass camper about 4 years ago. Even though we had a large tent and slept on an air mattress my body just wasn't up to it anymore. Since hubby loves to cook we always had to carry a lot of cooking supplies. We have been known to cook a hu...

Re: Tent camping advise

We tent camped with our first chow for 13 years and then moved up to a small camper. Meka loved it. We had her in our sight at all times because some wildlife don't take kindly to sharing their territory. Keep a clean campsite and be sure to store any human and dog food, tooth paste, deodorant, and ...

Re: rehoming advice

In case she escapes from her foster home you may want to have her microchipped with their contact information. Once you return it should be easy to revert the contact information back to you.
