We bought a dog a few weeks ago - a 16 week old Pyrenenan Mountain Dog. He was pedigree and cost 895.
Got him home, and within 3 days he'd seizured - so we rushed him to the vets . .. he got sent to Intensive Care 2hr drive away at animal hospital, where he had more seizures, lost his sight and was under "round the clock" supervision. He had MRI scan, liver biopsy, blood tests, stool tests, urine tests, and is now back home (with his sight bck) and on 4 types of medication (that cost 130 a week).

Got the bill from the animal hospital this morning . . . . a cool 4,300 . . . and we STILL don't know what's wrong with him.

We got free insurance from breeder for him - so trying to sort out how much for . . . . . .


4,300 . . . . . oooooouch! shok.gif That's about $8,800.


My next pet is to be a goldfish. That's already dead to avoid vet bills.

Looks like you got a dud. Go return him and tell them they sold you a faulty pup.



you can't return a puppy once he's back at your house, all playful and puppy-ish. He's too cute, he's going nowhere! He's been back with us about 2 weeks now and we couldn't trade him in.

I will call the breeder tonight and try to get some of our 895 back though. . . . . . .

Yeah, still got the Jack Russell - she's mothering the new pup, which is funny to see as he's already more than double her weight and he's just months old. He can get her whole head in his mouth .. . . will be even funnier when he's full size, she'll be 6-7kg and he'll be 50-65kg! Ha ha!

Dogs are ace - and I think once you've had one you'll never understand why people have cats . . . . .

Taking him to vets tongiht for ANOTHER blood test (must be about the 4th or 5th now), and they are doing another test and the smple is sent to Pennsylvania, USA. It's a pain cos they just don't know what it is, and this stabilising medication is costing a fortune!

Ha, well not at the moment. This dog has selective hearing, so doesn't hear when we call him, or tell him 'no', but he can hear a food packet crumple from the next street. We spent about 80 on new toys for him which was a waste, as all he wants to play with is the little Jack . . . and his teeth HURT! Her fur is constantly wet from his dribble, he just doens't leave her alone. It's funny.

I thought you had two dags?

They're doing an annual cull of badgers over here soon, I wonder if they'd consider the same for domestic cats?

Yeah, the Jack Russell wets herself when I walk just out to the car and back again with excitement as if I've been gone days.

It's cack at the moment bcause the bonfire celebrations have started here and she is petrified of fireworks. She shakes so much and hides wherever she can, and wont come out until about an hour after they've finished. Stupid mutt

Just kidding man, lol. I know what you mean though. You could be in the foulest mood and not want to talk to anyone, and then there is your dog who is the only thing your not angry at.

Thanks for complimenting my dog as well. I like the pic of your dog in the car. He/she looks real arrogant in the front seat, like he/she owns it, lol.

Sorry to hear about your dog's health issues.

Is a Pyrenenan Mountain Dog basically what we call a Great Pyrenese in the States? They are beautiful animals...big dogs. Almost like a white version of the Newfoundland we had when I was growing up.

Yeah, that's the one. you guys have to everything better, so you stuck a 'Great' at the start of their name smile.gif Same dog. We almost had a Newfoundland, but there's a cut at the back of our house, well it's all through the village, and Newfoundlands see water and just go, so we decided for the Pyr instead. Who instead, rolls in mud and bird poo. Awesome.

Funny - we had to put our Pyr in the bath (due to the occurance of bum dreads) the weekend (the next morning after the Calz fight as it happened with friends over and a hangover, thanks Benji) and his body is actually the size of a terrier under all that fur!! He looked really pathetic. So much for Falcor from the Never ending Story . . . . . . .

CHENNAI, India (AFP) - An Indian farmer has married his dog in a bid to overcome what he believes is a curse caused by him having stoned to death two mating dogs in his rice field, press reports said.

The 34-year-old farmer, identified as Selvakumar from Sivaganga district in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, fell on bad fortune 15 years ago after killing the dogs and hanging their carcasses from a tree.

A few days later, his hearing and speech were impaired and he was unable to walk.

Doctors were clueless, but an astrologer finally told him he was cursed by the spirits of the dogs he had killed. He could undo the curse only if he married a dog and live with it, the soothsayer said.

After a long search for a 'suitable bride', Selvakumar managed to get a four-year-old mongrel bitch from a friend and had a fully-fledged Hindu wedding in front of villagers and elders on Sunday, eyewitnesses said.

The canine bride, named Selvi, was adorned in a sari and flowers and brought to the temple by village women. A Hindu priest conducted the ceremony.

The reports, however, said Selvi the dog attempted to make a run for it -- apparently due to the large crowds -- but was eventually tracked down and returned to her new 'husband'.

"The dog is only for lifting the curse and after that, he plans to get a real bride," a friend of the groom said.
