Re: Bebe

I'm thrilled to say that Bebe, now known as Juliet, has become a permanent member of my family! The battle against the mast cell tumors isn't over, but we're going to do our best to win this war!

Re: Bebe

Hi folks! I wanted to give you an update on Bebe. The good news is she had surgery a few weeks ago to remove a mast cell tumor I found on her head and a lymph node that was enlarged, making the oncologist believe it was most likely more mast cells at work. The tumor on her head was a low level grade...

Re: Recommendations for dog training

In the Western suburbs, I highly recommend Wiggles-n-Wags in Lombard. The website is http://www.wiggles-n-wags.com Susan Eastwood is the owner. They are an all-positive training facility - no pincher or choker collars are used. Susan was instrumental in helping me with my foster dog, Yuletide. Yule ...

Re: Yuletide -Updated!

Yule hasn't really tried more than about 3 stairs at a time - I have a 1 story house. I think he'd be okay with them, but you'd most likely need to give him time (and treats). He does okay in the house uncrated. As soon as he catches on that I'm leaving, he usually curls up on the couch and gives me...

Re: Yuletide -Updated!

Yule is pretty laid back. He's happy just to lay next to the couch or sleep under the kitchen table. He's happiest when he's getting some scratches & ear rubs. He's been good with other dogs. While he & my dog aren't really buddies who wrestle & play all the time, they get along just fin...

Re: Yuletide

This is Yule's foster mom - he was kind of on hold for a while - he was very scared of new people. Not aggressive at all, but tail tucked, shaking and hiding under a desk. It took time to slowly get him used to new environments but he's made tremendous progress in the last month! I can tell he's sti...

Re: Yuletide

Yule is doing much better with his shyness. He's still afraid of new people, but his desire to meet a potential new friend who will pet him & give him treats is winning. The trainer who's been working with him was in tears this last Saturday at the difference we've seen in him. He just needs a f...

Re: Yuletide

And yes, Yule is still looking for his forever home! I just posted a new picture of him on our Facebook page. He will need someone that is willing to work with him on his shyness. He hasn't been aggressive, he's just very scared. He does seems to like kids, though. He warmed up pretty quickly to bot...

Re: Yuletide

Yule seems to have good energy. He's not crazy, bouncing off the walls or anything. He likes to just relax around the house, but he does well on walks and if I could just get him to play with some toys, I think he'd like to play fetch.

Re: Yuletide

Yule's such a sweetie! He's very shy around new people, but has lots of love to give!
