  O/T from BC's - Arwen
Posted by: smileyzookie - 11-01-2007, 03:51 PM - Forum: Photo & Video Gallery - Replies (3)

yes.. I know another Arwen thread. I had no intentions of sharing more cause this is a BC board, but this was too funny not to share. Arwen came home today from the vet (spay). She is still tied up (hubby prefers to make sure she's used to use/house/everything before letting her loose) but only with a collar not harness so she doesnt rub the staples. We aren't allowed to get them wet. I actually had to get my friends kid over here to baby sit her cause she will not stay out of stuff! I thought she'd be tired/not feel well whatever. Nope, and she's driving me insane. (notice the messed up table next to her in the video!) So, I figure maybe she's hungry. I bring food and she's chowing down. I bring water and set it on the chair (looks like a loveseat with a long seat part that goes under your legs-like a lazy boy I guess but not retractable and in loveseat form). She sticks her paw, arm almost up to her shoulder in the water and sloshes is everywhere. All over the chair, imagine the swiping motion they do with their litter. That is what she does. Then the other paw goes in. Im like ok no way, and grab the bowl. I put 2 towels down (folded to absorb) and put the bowl back down. She does it again! Sloshes water everywhere then crawls in the bowl and starts drinking!!! She stood *in* the bowl!!! I had read bengals take showers with their owners sometimes and never in a million years believed a *cat* would willingly get in water. ... here is the picture/video of the 4th time I gave her water, so there's less in the bowl...it started out nearly full.

This is as close as it's going to get to me doing anything for Halloween. I have class tonight and my DD has a big history exam so she's not even passing out candy. It's a big nothing day here in Crazytown, VA. Smile But we have zombie dogs.

  Did you dress your dog up for Halloween?
Posted by: smileyzookie - 10-31-2007, 03:11 AM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (16)

I grew up in a home where Halloween was never celebrated. I never trick-or-treated, dressed up, or carved pumpkins as a kid. All that changed this year lol. :twisted: I carved my first 2 pumpkins today, and am baking the seeds tomorrow. We're having a hayride around town tomorrow with all my friends and their kids and Riven :lol: She even dressed up. Im gonna put a bucket handle in her mouth and have her go door to door. LOL

  HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROHAN!!! *picture heavy!*
Posted by: smileyzookie - 10-31-2007, 02:12 AM - Forum: Off-Topic - Replies (5)

Today is my baby boys birthday. We got him in the 3rd week of November, and he was just a little tiny guy. The first night I had him he vomited every 15 minutes and slept the rest of the time. We took him into the vet and he didnt think he'd make it. My mom had to rub wet kitten food onto his gums to make him eat. He was VERY tiny, and severely underweight and malnurished. I swear he was at the vets office at least once a month for the first year. This is about a week or so after we got him. He still looks so sick, his eyes were messed up and he looks nothing like the trouble maker he would become.

He always wanted to be close and would sleep in my lap all the time.

Then the beginnings of the attitude came.

That adorable little angry kitty soon turned into this...

Meeting Riven was not a good day for him.
[Image: IM000596.jpg]

Soon they were buddies

[Image: IM000731.jpg]

But they still have their arguments

He has a major attitude, but sometimes, I just want to squeeze him.

He's my boy and I cant imagine my life without him. Happy birthday Rohan. May your ankle biting, kid chasing, back talking, bad attitude furry butt stay around for many years to come.

  A New Record!!! Another leash bites the dust!
Posted by: BCMixs - 10-30-2007, 07:54 PM - Forum: General Border Collie Discussion - Replies (5)

Now I know Indie is a chewer. And this is completely my fault. But I thought I could get away with just popping the kiddies into the car, leave their leashes attached and just run down to the dog park for a quick run around before the sun set when I got out of class tonight. But nooooooooo! In 1 1/2 minutes, Indie had chewed through Woobie's leash! I literally got around the corner from my house, pulled over into a gas station, and it was severed! I heard him chomping and thought, oh geez, and it was all done. Sad I'm just grateful it was Woobie's cheapo leash and not the thick corded $25 leash I just bought to replace the one Indie destroyed that I was using on him. So I went off to Wally World and got the kind of leash that has the chain. And now I'm in the market for a wire crate that has a side door. It's only a matter of time before the dog eats a seat or something really expensive. The size crate he needs fits snugly into the back of my RAV4 so I need a side door to be able to get him into it and I'll have to put Woobie in the back seat with his seat belt harness.

Darn dog.

ETA: In the back of the car are a sturdy tug, a rope and a frisbee to chew on, so it's not like he didn't have choices!!!

  The events of tonight

How it began.
[Image: IM000990a.jpg]

All was quite and calm. Until Riven climbed in my lap and forced Arwen behind her, and began hitting her with her tail helping Arwen see the toy she's neglected too long

*the light bulb*

Poor Riven. She is a smart dog but had no clue what Arwen was up to. She like looked behind her, saw Arwen attack her tail and just turned back around as if bored. It was hilarious. Arwen entertained herself for a while attacking that massive mop of a tail lol. Riven and Arwen are practically best friends, and Arwen had never been around a dog before! I'll try to get a video tomorrow Big Grin
