New puppy

Postby keggler 1 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 3:57 pm

Hello all.....My brother and his wife raise small breed dogs,and they are shipped all over. He mainly has Yorkie's but also very small Min-Pin's and Maltz. He also has a rare breed Shiba Uno's(from Japan) that look like a fox but smaller, Anyway he called me and said he had a Yorkie small runt that needed extra help(Thrive to survive)and swimmers .I took her home and within a few days she is up and running around eating and playing just like any other puppy would be doing.At 9 weeks old she looks like a newborn baby. Vet said she weighs 10 1/2 ozs.My other yorkie, Suddie is the sister to her mother,she was to small to breed and I rescued her when she was about 2.

I guess I'll have my hands full for a while, but she adapted to a routine very quick,and actually heads for her crate when she's tired or thirsty.I found an old t-shirt worked great to calm her down and have a feeling of security. I guess its the smell.

Wish me luck,and everyone keep our friends in Australia in your thoughts and prayers.They are experiencing some of the worst flooding in years.

Later...Jerry in Carolina...

This is great news but it is missing one thing- PICTURES!!!

Too bad our "meeting" time clashed because pippa would have loved to meet you in person too (my mom said you guys had a good talk though!). Of course I would have too but I am not as cute and fuzzy as she is!

I also want to put in a note for everyone else out here in asap cyber world, yorkies and other lower maintenance dogs are awesome therapy. The assistance dogs provide in any disabling condition is proven continuously to lower pain levels. They have been shown to lower stress levels, blood pressure and actually increase memory and brain functions. Yorkies in perticular are easy to train with positive methods. My actually can tell if I am about to fall- I take her where I am allowed to and she loves sitting in a shopping cart. Multible times she has started growing and pawss/licks my hand before I am about to have a "drop attack". If I fall she starts barking, luckily I haven't passed out/knocked out yet when she is with me but if I did she would get attention quickly!

Thanks yes Sweet Pea will fit in great here.This is my third yorkie,and as Chris said earlier,they are great therapy dogs.My first one Scotter would always go to bed when I did,and if during the night,if I was vomiting in my sleep,he would jump on me and bark.If I was having any problems,he seemed to know. He got intestinal cancer from bad dog food (Joy).There were a lot of dogs that got sick here in the Carolinas,and most all died from the dog food.I feed my big dogs Apex a holistic dog food made with no by-products.The puppy I put on Bil-Jack-which is one of the best puppy foods you can get.My other dog Suddie is a little jealous but will come around.

Is it just me or does anyone else think Jerry is enjoying teasing us with no pics? :twisted:



Jerry, I am so sorry about that bad dog food. That is so sad. I had to give pippa a squeeze and a kiss when I read that.

Wow! What a zoo you have going there! Animals are the best tho. Do they all get along? Well, I mean the dogs. I have seen some cute pics of cats and dogs sleeping together. Since I lost Dee Dee at Thanksgiving I am down to 2 dogs. I still miss her terribly. My DH said no more dogs, but if someone said they had a wiener that needed a good home, I would take it in. Our house is a wiener dog house.

I have heard that Parrots can live 70-80 years. How old are they?

Time to go Dr Doolittle, enjoy your menagarie.

Wow! I can't believe the yorkies tolerate the rottwieller! I've had to pull my other yorkie (estranged ex got him and I miss him fiercely!) Off of a couple rottwiellers! In my experience for some reason yorkies seem to hate rottweilers, german shepards, and bulldogs. My little Pippa is great around labs, even saint bernards, but those three she hates and tries to attack! She even chases, but doesn't attack, a boxer a neighbor has! The boxer is scared to death of her!

For some reason this is a common trait and is one of the leading causes of death for yorkies. These three breeds don't try to hurt the yorkies, only shake them around trying to get the yorkies off of their necks!

As much as I try to socialize pippa I just can't get her around those three breeds!

Thank you for being such a great rescue worker! And I too am told I communicate better with animals than people!

I don't have any doggies, but I have 3 kitties. Two of which we rescued. They are awesome when I don't feel well. Cassidy, my russian blue hangs out with me on the couch when I'm in pain or just feeling low. Ginger, my Maine Coon, comes up on the bed in the morning to cuddle and also to check on me when I get my lovely leg cramps in the middle of the night. I hate that I freak her out sometimes with my moaning and groaning! And last but not least, our feral mutt calico who is now such a love bug sleeps right up against my leg no matter how much I toss, turn, kick etc. I don't know what I would do without my fur babies. My husband likes to tease that they get more attention than he does, but he loves them just as much as I do!

Have fun with your furry family!!! :mrgreen:
