I have created another blog...

That will be solely for the poodles, as this one is more geared toward the Schnauzers. Although, we are not really "Southern" anymore as we have missed too much and have since moved back home.

Though I guess we are located in Southern Maine... LOL.

Blog for the poodles, can be found at

4th Addition

I'm so bad at updating this stinkin thing. Forgot to mention we have added a 4th pup to the family. Meet Lincoln, a 5-month old red Poodle boy. (I think he will be about Mini size full-grown). Tsuki needed a playmate her size, and they just LOVE each other. Reminds me of the Schanuzers. Well... without further ado..

New Addition

We haven't done anything dog related in quite awhile... which kinda sucks. I hate not having any connections down here...

Added a new dog to the pack. She'll be 5 months in 5 days, a silver, female, Toy Poodle, name of Tsuki. She's fearless, bounces like a JRT, and I'm pretty sure is part piranha.

We're down two chicks...

We moved the chicks outside last night. Sometime last night/this morning they had gotten into the neighbors yard (they have chickens too) and the rooster killed Marco and Pollo... which ironically... both were mine. I think the next door neighbor-chickens have it out for me. They better watch I don't poison their feed...


RIP Little Chickies.

Poop, Poop, Poop, and oh! More poop!

All of the dogs were sick yesterday. I think we have a combination of a bug and new food switch. Though Kiba and Kaylee didn't have the runs, but Kiba was still shaking. And Stryder had only the one time runs in the morning, but I think he may have gotten a hold of some of the new kibble too (and I'm pretty sure he's allergic to rice).

Everyone is fine this morning, except Lizzie. But we're keeping close eyes, wet mops, and toilet paper ready! (Yes, we're horrible dog owners who have run out of paper towels. I NEED PAPER TOWELS!!!! *wonders if the Army can air drop some at house*

Sputnik (Lindsays chick) almost escaped yesterday. I had their top (its a babygate) in the kitchen blocking off the suspected sick dogs... and she flew up and just sat on the edge. Everyone has their big-girl wings in, and are starting to get some feathers on their backs. Their tails are all pretty much full-feathered, except Laika who seems to be a little smaller, and less feathered than everyone else.

And now when you pick them up... they flap like crazy and could probably go air-borne if they wanted to. Once it's warm again they may start doing half-days outside (in a enclosure). *tear* Our little babies are growing up!!

Ug. More Kiba Problems

And Kiba is usually the healthier one! Why is she having more problems??

She has about 4 little lumps on her. I'm not sure if they are just bug bites (we were down at the creek yesterday), starting of tumors (that's how the histiocytoma started out), or maybe in-grown hairs from having been groomed the other day.

Also while petting her, I felt this "lump" on her neck behind her ear. It looks kinda like she was bit (but no puncture wound). Both dogs did escape the room this morning, so my best guess would be that a collie was mouthing her and was just playing to rough or what, but I do also notice she is missing hair from her knees. So not sure if maybe it is something else, but eh, what's one more think to keep an eye on. They're being switched back to the Innova Evo RM tomorrow to see if that's it.

And I have also determined something that Stryder is allergic... and I'm like 98% sure... RICE! He got a little bit when Kiba was sick and didn't eat, and bam! foot chewing and itching. And he got some leftover wet food the other day and when we got home he was chewing and itching again. And he hasn't done anything for quite a while too! He's sleeping next to me while I watch the chicks, apply for jobs, and me... awake at 4am. LOL.

Kiba was also acting a bit weird earlier too. Not only was she chilling in the bathroom with Cait, she was running back and forth through the house and not wanting to really cuddle. And she was shaking just a tiny bit too then stopped. Ughh. I hope she's not getting sick again..
