Few from my phone

Post by Shisa on Tue Jan 06, 2015 11:27 am

Is that a rat on the floor!?



Puppy naptime; any where, any time, any position.









Afternoon treat: snoozing with our overworked mum





New family pic



Not such a good one as they really didn't feel like posing and Xan has that huge thing in his neck but I have to keep a record.

He's ok.
The skin is a bit gunky from him scratching at the abscess but he's fine in himself.

We're having a betting competition about how Bruno's ears are going to end up. The left one keeps going up and down and today the right has a pronounced lift. Very interesting to see. I'm hoping they'll stay down.

Gorgeous pics! Bruno looks to have settled in nicely. I hope Xan recovers soon.

If you want Brunos ears to sit down.... I was taught how to massage them everyday & it worked a treat with my rottie as one stood up as a pup.

Sit with him infront of you. Put your 2-4 fingers under his ear with your thumb over his ear from the back. With your thumb, massage/stroke the base forward. Do it as many times as he will sit for. (Mine loved it after about 3 goes. An ear massage, who wouldn't? ) It softens the cartilage & over a month or so the ear will sit down & forward.

I did it daily till Boris was 1.5yr as I was advised by the Rottie club not to stop because his ears sat well as the ear can thicken again & sit back up in the 1st 12mths or so.

With Jess, her ears sat well as a pup so I did it, but not daily. She now has...one beautiful ear & one flying nun ear! rolling on floor But I love it. It gives her character. Especially when she cocks her head. happy

Hope that's of some help.

With Xan, do you think it would help to drain it & with antibiotics he would recover more quickly?
Hugs to Xan from us. hug

Beautiful photos! Hasn't Bruno grown - amazing. shocked

I'd prefer his ears to stand up - that looks so cute!

I won't influence his ears. They have to do what they're supposed to. We've got money riding on the eventual outcome laughing Only R20 that the winner will use to buy something for everyone laughing laughing laughing

The abscess doesn't have any fluid to drain. It's already much smaller so the antibiotics seem to be doing the trick.
He did nick it from all the scratching and it bled a bit but no gross puss.

Thank you. He's grown so much. He's a whole kilogram heavier now.

Tracy, Xan is doing great. The swelling is almost completely gone.

Does Xan have to go back to the vets?
