  1. Hi all, I haven't been around in a while. Busy with the boy (19 months old now), work, etc. I wanted to share a pic of our son, Kaden, and our border collie, Maisie.
  2. I need to be careful on what I put on her for baths... she is allergic to just about everything as far as shampoos. We ahve to give her a prednisone everytime we bath her or she scratches like crazy for 24 hours. We have a standard rack... maybe I'll use it once and see what it does. Thanks!
  3. Hi all, I have a question about grooming... my BCs tail in particular. I use a "Furminator" which does a good job on getting the undercoat out on her body but what should I do about her tail? It looks like she has an undercoat in her tail... is it and should I try to brush it out? Her tail hair is VERY thick right now... not sure if it is standard practice to brush the tail like you do on the body. Thanks!
  4. I like him. I do not think he overly aggressive. He understands that a dog is a dog and they need a certain structure to be happy. Dogs are pack animals and they need to see their owner as the 'boss'. When they don't will become unruly, it's just a matter of time. He teaches a good mix of discipline, exercise and affection. Without all three I believe a dog isn't as happy as he could be...
  5. Maisie is doing good with him. She really doesn't pay attention to him much. She does know him by name though. If I tell Maisie "Check on Kaden" she runs over to his pack and play and looks inside. She is much more interested in the bunny.
  6. Hi everyone... Here's an update on Kaden. He's 10+ weeks sold now and smiling like crazy. I tossed in a picture of Maisie to make it legal .
  7. My wife and I had our first child on 7/12/08. We had a boy and named him "Kaden". We've been taking tons of pictures. Heck, we have over (900) of our 3 year old border collie so you can imagine how many we've been taking. We have many nice pictures but this one moves me more than any other. They say pictures say a thosand words, but this one is going to speak to me for the rest of my life.
  8. Here's a few when Maisie was younger. The one pic gave her the name "Krazy Maisie". I think she thinks she shoud be a movie star on the second pic.
  9. Just a few pictures from a short frisbee playing session.
  10. Just a quick note... I have been search forums on this topic too. Just figured someone new or new info could be posted here.
  11. Hi all, Well, it finally happned... I'm going to be a daddy. A real daddy (I consider my BC as my child=o). My wife is 17 weeks along and her due date is July 29th. We are starting to prepare for the new addition to the family. My questions are tips / suggestions on how to introduce a newborn to a spoiled BC. She has rules in the house, which I think will help, but she will definately be jealous at first. I thought of moving her to the inlaws for the first week or two so the baby gets the 'house smell'. Maybe that will allow Maisie to accept the new addition quicker. I plan on doing everything I can to make sure Maisie knows that the baby is alpha over her. I really like Caesar Milan, and will look and see if he has any books on the issue. Thanks in advance! -Mike
  12. Hope she gets well soon. She must have eaten a lot of poison... I heard a 30-40 lb dog needs to eat a good bit to be harmful.
  13. Does OCD concerning a frisbee count? With frisbee in mouth, Maisie will follow me everywhere when we're outside... until I give her the 'Take a Break' phrase, then she'll go lay down someone. She'll also sit and stare at my wife's bunnies for hours. I guess it's a way to burn off some of that energy... mental energy, not physical. PA here, so I guess I'm out of the running...
  14. Maisie is not allowed on the bed or the couch. I believe there are some places a dog should not be. I believe it could lead to behavior issues. She's a dog and I don't want her to start thinking she's a human. Plus I hate dog hair in the bed... it's hard enough keeping my clothes hair free Just my honest opinion.
