      Hi..... just a little update on Anouk.... my new baby.... She is doing fantastically, considering both Ken and I have been floored for 3 days with the dreaded Norro Virus !!! She sleeps all night, peacefully, thank goodness as I havent had any energy to get up 2 or 3 times through the night !! Collects everything that moves and takes it to her bed which has become a little den for everything.... including my slippers at every opportunity!!.Loves to cuddle in on my Lap or shoulder or chest which I just love.... She is now chasing after Conoch (GSD) everywhere but knows to stand back from Kai (Malamute).... who is just loving evey time he walks by her bed he pinches one of the chews !!! he has managed to digest 2 Nylobones !!!! Hopefully the training will start soon when I get my strength back.... Hows everything with you ?? x

      I'm ok thanks. Have fallen out with my neurologist as they are taking up so much time, so I've been referred to the top man in the country, who unfortunately is in London and only takes on private patients, so saving up the dollar. In good spirits though.

      Thanks for asking xx

      Keep an eye on it for infection. Nunuk kept wanting to drag his rear end for a couple of days, which I really discouraged, lest he get it infected.

      Also, as for exercise, the first day he'll still be kind of dopey and grumpy from the sedative. Nunuk actually whined a bit, which he has never done. He also accepted and didn't destroy a soft toy.

      He'll know something isn't quite right, so give him lots of time and attention and positivity.

      Let me know if you have any questions!

      He seemed absolutely fine after a week. The vet said to keep him quiet for a second week, but really I ignored that! I did forget about swimming, and he went swimming 2 weeks after it. He got a bit swollen and I was worried for a day, but it resolved itself.
      Also, the vet let me stay while the did an initial injection of a sedative, designed to get him sleepy. I stayed with him for about 20 minutes for it to take effect. I don't know how much difference it made to HIM, but it made ME feel a lot less guilty about leaving him, since he wasn't so stressed. The other thing I'd do in reetrospect is to get a DAP collar for him.

      A couple other things -- my vet did 'internal' stiches, so they didn't have to be removed. I don't quite understand it, but it healed up great.

      (Doing this in a few posts because it won't let me post anything long!)
      I watched him like a hawk and if he started, I'd just interrupt him and he wasn't bothered about it. It got itchy after 3 days or so, and I put an old t-shirt over him. But really it took being with him all the time, listening for his chewing at himself. Then interrupting him. This way, he got through it without a collar. As for exercise, it's so tough. I can't remember what I did exactly, but tried to do quiet stuff. He was off the lead, I just kept him from running for the first couple of days. We did a lot of hide & hunt in the house. It'd be a great time to introduce scent work. After 2 or 3 days, he did the racing puppy routine, and there was no stopping him. So I let him do some galloping (hunting a hidden ball outside) after 4 or 5 days, so he was not getting up much speed and NO JUMPS.

      Hi, there -- Oh, this pink background is tough on my eyes so apologies for any typos -- I won't be watching very closely. Nunuk got through it great. First two days, he really didn't lick at it.

      hi Laura,

      Thanks for getting in touch Laura, nice to meet you. Mac is gorgeous, aren't these dogs great!

      Do let Mac off the lead on your walks? It's too early for Scalli and we have the car chasing problem to solve, which we're organising a private trainer for, we have tried everything, nothing is working. So letting Scalli off the lead is out of the question at the moment, she only has to hear a car engine and she's ready to attack.

      I love your profile, I'm off to buff mine out :)

      Hear from you soon,
    19. katiefranke
      Yes!! Thought so! Thats Rosmarinus Silver Lustre :D Gorgeous dog - his sire is maggie's grandsire...
    20. katiefranke
      oh yes - i think foggy is possibly a rosmarinus too like maggie - i swear i have seen him before, looks very familiar...will have to go off and have a look now to see properly who the dog is or gonna bug me! :D
