Heres mine, took 2 years of waiting for waiting to get her se is a swedish vallhund. i was hoping for a boy and was going to call him fabian but mum only had 2 girls so called her Fay. She is destruction on paws! she destroyed a kong when she was 11weeks old, we can only get her toys for large dogs and she still destroys them. :devil:


The day she came home

Dont have any reasont ones as we had to qurentieen her so not taken her anywhere, it turned out her puppy vacs didnt take and she had no imunity and caught parvo (pritty sure form the beach), but she is all better now, stopped shadding the virus and now revacinated and covered for everything except distanper for some reason. So she ia allowed out again and need to be revacinated with another brand again in around 8 months. Shes also accident prone and reasontly twisted her leg.
I never get normal pets.

Did you do a titre test this time to ensure the vaccine worked??

A friend of a friend breeds Bernese Mountain Dogs and she vaccinates her puppies and then titre tests and she has found that the vaccination hasn't worked and so re-vaccinated, sometimes it's taken 3 sets of vaccinations to get a good antibody reading. After the first year's booster she doesn't vaccinate, she titre tests every 2 years and the antibodies have always been good, so no need to booster.

Yeah they tested her just befor sending her home which said no imunity to any but parvo (but that was expicted as she had just gotton over it) so revacinated and tested again and test came back as covered for everything else except distemper. Spoken to a few vets and advice is not to revac again as she has had 2 (so 4 doses) in 9 months and would worrie about over vacinating and causing an autoimune prob, and as vets arounnd here and by the breeders in england havent have a case of it in years my vets never had a case, one is llanelli said non in last 15 years, and one in england says never that they can rember, the testing lab also says its no common anymore) they advised waithing untill a few months befor boster is due and do it all again.
Her breeder even emailed a guy in america who writes the vac protocals over there and he thinks its was maternal antiboidies that stopped the first set and that its stastickly more likley that thre was a fault with the distamper one in the second than her being a non respondant (1 in 5000 dogs are non respondents apperantly). so fingers crossed when she is done again it will all take and i wont have to worrie any more.

Been to the beach today with our "pack"

One pyrennes
One Czech wolfdog
Four German Shepherds
and one muppet type Golden retriever.
As normal the most well behaved dogs on the beach :no1: well bar the czech, but we hide her faults well when there are 7 humans there to watch/distract her (never buy a GSD cross sled dog, inuit or these wolf dogs, no matter what shiny name they put on them, they are all nightmares :bash:)

There is a puppy walker for Guide dogs that goes down there and the dog is a nightmare, steals balls, would not leave us alone in the cafe area. She even climbed on the bench we sat at! Constantly upsetting our dogs when they are settled as they are trying so hard to be good and lay down and she is always on them, I think she may have even been in season the upset she was causing. The walker was a nice enough lady when I spoke to her a few months back, but frankly seems lazy or just lacking the energy to deal with her, leaving us have to do everything to get her away. The dog is just a nightmare and so the walker hangs out with the other special needs dogs, like a staffy that chews rocks and a kelpie cross that cannot stop barking!! I cannot see how they can make a good guide dog out of the raw materials this walker has crafted together and all the habits she has picked up from the dogs she is exposed to.

The only thing that would worry me is the distemper that's going around in the ferret community. If it continues to spread it could end up causing problems in the dog community too.

I would tend to agree with you about that! :gasp:

That's not what I would expect from a puppy walker, but that poor puppy is gonna have a rude awakening when it goes into training and all those bad habits have to be dealt with! :bash:

Just what I was going to say.
Huge groups of ferrets are being wiped out by it, and they must be getting it from somewhere. Maybe not many dogs have symptoms because they have some immunisation coverage, but with ferrets and perhaps I guess wild foxes suffering there is no saying it is not out there

PPVallhunds 02-07-2012 03:32 PM

yeah its the ferrit thing thats been worring me. but not found anythink mentioned for south wales. Does anyone know how they have been comming in contact with it? ferret shows or something? Also read it doesnt last that long in the enviroment unlike parvo.

Kare 02-07-2012 04:17 PM

I think the big groups are in reScues from new ferrets coming in. But many small groups have suffered with no real known source.
