I'd lost track of this thread for a while and followed your story from the first post up until this post, all within the course of an hour. Sounds promising, Teger. Best of luck.

As I type this, there's a 10 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback's head resting on my thigh and a 13 year old JRT on my lap after a morning walk so life feels pretty good here for now.

Meanwhile.

And what was the dog? Not a Fighting Pit Bulldog, not a Rottweiler, nor any of the other "usual suspects." No, it was America's Favorite Family Dog, the gentle Labrador Retriever!
Hard to see what provoked the attack: Perhaps Sudden Onset Rage Syndrome or perhaps some sort of dominance aggression: When Tilden turned his attention away from the dog, the dog got pissed. I have personally observed the latter phenomenon, but not remotely to that degree of aggression.

 

 

Torn apart his face with fangs or knocked teeth out with skull?  I've seen dogs jump up while greeting and knock out teeth.

Glad it's working.

Bring your dog day at Citi Field Mets vs Marlins today.



they actually let the dogs/owners onto the field before the game. didn't expect that to happen.









Mets ended up beating the Marlins. I got to see two home runs.

Best of luck, Teger. It's a terrifying aspect watching a dog become ill or receive treatment. I'm glad to read that your dog has responded to it so early on and please keep us updated.

Sad but true. When you buy a hunting/herding breed based on its cuteness as a puppy and have no clue about its needs, we all know what happens when that dog exits puppyhood.

Yes, Milo is a Wheaten. I don't see a lot of them around and when we do we always have to go make new friends!

huge improvements over the last few days - she's still VERY yellow, but her appetite is up (she's actually eating her normal dog food for the first time .. in weeks! as I type this), and she has a ton of energy.
