CC was chokeing

I gave her a piece of chicken jerky. A treat that she has had a million times. Suddenly she was pawing at her face, then jumpped in my lap--all 30 pounds of her and was trying to paw at my face. I realized she was in trouble and did a mouth sweep and disloged the chicken. Hubby was laughing at her a...

Re: ugh it culd be worse.

OK someone up there is trying to tell you something. You need to stay in bed with the covers over your head. Dont even go potty without assistance--LOL. That is just terrible and sounds like something my husband would do. Be careful. I do hope you have not sustained any serious injury.

CC has company

My son and DIL came for 2 days for some family time. The last time CC saw them it took her a bit to warm up to them, especially my son--she barked and snapped at him--but that was during the hurricane after we had evaced and she had been in the car for 4 hours. They became friends then. Well the mom...

Re: E-Collar After Spay Surgery?

CC didn't have a collar after her spay and was just fine. Of course my last dog was a male and was nutered. He had a collar and managed to get around it and tear his stitches out--had to go get him resewn--a blody mess. I was really expecting to have to return to the vet for the collar but she was O...

Re: Very Social Chow?

My chow mix (looks like with some kind of terrier) is very social but loves pulling on the leash. I have really not tried to break the pulling except for when she is running trying to get to someone--for a greeting--and I tell her to leave it and she comes back to me. She is only 11 months. As for l...

Last night the police were here due to a call that said the man next door was going to kill his wife--life in an apartment complex. When they could not get them to the door they banged on mine to see if I had heard anything. I let them walk through my apartment to get to the neighbor's back door and...

I didn't go with VPI I went with Embrace. It will even cover things that are frequent with the breed like entropion fro chow...

The other evening a neighbor came over and told me her barking was disturbing her sleep--she works nights. I can sure relate to that since I do too...

My neighbors have a kitten that is sooo cute--they leave it outside all the time. CC has been trying so hard to get to it but it is so small I was afraid. Well the other day I let her approach after a LONG walk and she just wanted to be friendly. The kitten hissed but didn't run. Today I took her ou...

Re: spay but no skin sutures?

CC had stitches but wound glue would have been nice. I recently had surgery on my neck (they cut my throat) and had wound glue. It was awsome.Much better than stitches or staples and no removal needed. The scar looks good too.

TP, paper towels, kleenex paper, envelopes..... If it is paper, CC loves it. She will tear paper up all over the apartment anytime she gets the chance. I cannot understand the temptation of this but at least I know she is not strange.

Re: What is it, that makes a chow so different?

My CC is a mix and is many ways is very non-chowish. She loves affection and is very in your face for it. In some ways I can see the chow in her behavior. She is very smart and learns fast but seems to be considering if she wants to follow commands or if there is a reward involved. She is also very ...

Re: Wet neck syndrome

My CC always got her chin wet too. I got her a water bottle that hooks onto her crate and that solved the problem unless I give her a bowl of water like I do after her walks (it is very hot here). Of course if you are not using a crate that would not be the answer.
