A note from Beth, about Enzo ( Born Jan. 27, 2014, a Lady- Mondo son)

"Enzo still loves this little piece of blanket Julia gave all of us from when the pups were with her and Lady...made me smile when I saw him with it this morning"

Beth, it made me smile too!!!  What a sweet boy!

Here is Sadie playing tug-a-war with her sister, our puppy, Maggie!!!

Special Guest!!!

We have a special guest for the week, SADIE !!! (while her puppy parents are on vacation with their family)
This is Sadie from the Jan. 27th 2014 litter from Lady and Mondo!

Zoey, (Jada-Griffin pup) celebrated her THIRD birthday with Hailey (Julia and Dave's Grand-daughter)

Thanks for the picture, Katie!

A birthday note about Nathan (Nate) from Bert:

Big Nate is loving and always happy.  
Lesa often calls him tag along. She
says I have an invisible leash on him that 
keeps him always within 5 feet of
me .

Bert and Lisa also have Belle who will be FIVE in October!  
(She is a sister from an earlier litter from
Jada and Griffin.)  
You will find pictures of them in earlier posts!

A cute story from Libby about her adventures with Lucy, one of Jada and Griffin's 3 year old puppies!!

I was home over spring break and built Lucy a jump since she LOVES to jump over my make shift obstacles.

But recently on a walk at the park that skill of hers I encouraged backfired! It's hot and we were about an hour into our walk

and we were going up a trail that is lined by a construction fence, Lucy looked over the fence and saw a pond (which she seemed to not care about when we were on the other part of the trail). She then decided it was time for a dip and hopped the fence.

She splashed around some while I sat there watching her and cracking up.

When she was cooled down enough she jumped back over onto the trail and continued on our walk, very pleased with herself. 

There is never a dull moment with my spunky poodle

Happy Birthday to all of the Jada-Griffin pups born June 15, 2011!!! THREE years old yesterday!

She is as sweet as she is beautiful!

Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy (HOD)

One of our pups, Sadie ("Gigi") , (Lady/Mondo 2014 litter) was diagnosed with HOD last evening.  I had not heard of it before so have been trying rapidly to come up to speed.

The disease causes pain and inflammation to the growth plates of long bones particularly in the front legs during periods of rapid growth in puppies 8 weeks to about 8 months old.  It occurs most frequently in large and giant breeds. The symptoms can include limping and lameness, loss of appetite, fever, and more...mild to severe.

The cause is basically unknown although theories from vaccine reaction, bacterial infection, Vitamin C deficiency, high calorie high fat diets ...are mentioned in the literature, and it could also be a combination of factors.

The treatment is to control the symptoms of pain and inflammation with medication, and frequently antibiotics are also given.

Sadie's owners, Andrew and Trisha were quick to act, the vet was quick to diagnose and treat, and Sadie is already doing a good bit better this morning.   The vet thought this was a mild case and that she should be much better in about 5 days.

I will post an update and more information when I have some.

Thank you Andrew and Trisha for letting us know and letting us share and

My Granddaughter and her dog, Zoey (Lady's sister).

Julia Maria, Lady's sister, with her "friend"!

I photoshopped this by adding greater exposure…Julia Maria is very black, like Reny, and she also looks much like Reny (her sister from Jada's 2009 litter).

Julia Maria usually has her cousin, Susie Victoria to play with but right now Susie Victoria is out earning
her conformation championship!

Thank you Fr. Scott for sharing.
