Oh - he is growing !!!!
9kg when I got him and now he is 14kg (3mths old). I have had to stop carrying him up and down the stairs as my elbows have given out on me.
Demon class is going very well and he has been given an A++++. He goes to puppy class every Thursday night for socialization and now gets on really well with my daughters 2 YO Rottie Coda - who just loves puppies. It's funny cause when she brings her 62kg "small pony" into the class there is a long gasp and many pick up their pups in fear. He just lays down and all the puppies end up by climbing over him and having great fun. I will try and get a pic of it.

Hope all are doing well and special thoughts at this time for Jack.

HEy gang! I am just reading over some posts and it looks like all in generally good with everyone. That's one big dog for sure! Finn is doing well, still a bit weak in the rear legs but demeanor-wise he's doing great. We finished up the Doxy for Lymes and he is so much better. I think I might take him for accupuncture for his rear legs. I would like to get him more strength if possible. Not sure if its just the meds. The spam thing is a huge issue on all bulletin boards and there's no easy solution in sight. I have been doing a lot travel with skiing taking advantage of Finn's good health, I am off to Atlanta today back tomorrow so I'll catch up then.

Good health to everyone!

Hi Finndog,
I'm so happy to hear that Finn has been doing good and the lymes med. are now finished. How did the Atlanta trip go? Give Finn a big hug from me and wishing you both continued success that the seizures stay under control.

I'm new here...but I thought I'd give you an update on Murray, my ACD mix. We have started taking Beginning Agility Classes, and Murray was totally awesome! As far as I know, he's never done agility, and even before the class started, he was going through the weave poles and the tunnel! A lot of the other students refused to go through the tunnel, but me and the teacher had a hard time keeping him out of it, and letting other students take their turn!

He isn't the fastest student in the class, I think he's still adjusting to the Phenobarbital (he's only been on it for three weeks), but his attitude is definitely happier and he's a lot perkier. I think when he first started having seizures that he got a little depressed and of course I was worried about him and he could sense that. But we did get the go ahead from his vet for the agility class and he loves it! And so far he hasn't had any seizures!

Carla,
I also would like to welcome you and to wish you success with the agility. Many of our dogs do participate in competition and do fine with it. This disease is truly a learning experience and as time goes by you will become more in tune to how Murray is feeling. We are here to help and support you so ask as many questions as you can, read, and read some more and remember, we all understand how you feel so anytime you need to vent or just an email hug, we're here to help.
Again, welcome to you and Murray.

Aawwwww, what a little sweetie! He is just adorable. Congrats to Barney for doing so well and fingers, toes, and my dogs paws crossed, he continues to do well. Don't feel bad about having a little chunky monkey, mine is too! While I know it's not good for him, I know a lot of it is the medicine, as he doesn't get anything different than Callie and she isn't overweight. ( she is much more active than him though) At least the last couple of visit's at the vets, he hasn't gained anymore weight. Big hugs to you and Barney and wishing you both continued success!
