AL, I hope she feels better, and that this is nothing serious. I have no advice, just my well wishes for you guys. I always bummed when one of our huskies aren't feeling well Sad

I use Boswellia for my arthritic guy. I think 2 other people on this forum use it as well, although one of them is no longer an active member. That thread Amy linked to is old and I haven't updated it with my revised "cocktail" of supplements but I now use Boswellia 4 days a week, more if we are more active or traveling. I also use homeopathic T-Relief daily for pain.

I looked at the supplement you posted last night and it looks pretty decent. Lacking some ingredients that I would use but otherwise decent.

Hope it helps.

Hey, Val? I know your really busy and very pregnant but if you get a chance, could you update that thread for what's working for you now? Whenever people on fb or here ask about supplements for hd or arthritis, I always post a link to that thread. I think it's great information.

Sure Amy, will try to do it this week. As he gets older his needs keep changing so it's sort of a fluid "formula".

Amy, I know that I really appreciate it when someone provides a link. "But, just Google it!" Yeh, and when I get back 2,345,678,901 responses I should look at which one?

It's odd to me, and I've suggested this before, *I* know what when I suggest that someone Google something that I might remember correctly it always seems so much easier to just point them to the right place - the one i'm thinking about - anyway.

What I hear from people who don't provide links is that they don't have the time ... but they *do* have the time to respond the the next 25 messages asking for more information - sorry, that does *not* compute.

Thanks Amy, you're appreciated ...

Sasha's feeling better ... still has a pronounced limp, but after while outside running around it goes away.

Was setting at the computer, with Avalanche and his supper on the front porch, he started barking so I looked over to see why and the only thing I see in the yard is a roadrunner ... He barked a couple of more times and I went to see why ... looked over his head so I could really tell what he was looking at and I've got a rattler (something about 3-4 ft long and "full") lounging in the driveway.

Took my little pistol (25cal) and after missing several times (I can't hit the broad side of a barn with a pistol!) finally sent him to perdition. Needless to say all my pups are inside tonight, they do not like gunfire!!

You may look into turmeric paste and see if it might benefit you. I have put mine on it instead of glucosamine and chondroitin. I have heard good things about it with dogs who have arthritis. Kenzi has pretty bad arthritis and will limp if she's laid down too long. Mine haven't been on turmeric long enough to give my own review yet but they have been off glucosamine and chondroitin for a few weeks now and haven't dropped back to pre supplement behavior yet. It's cheaper than the glucosamine. It is a mixture of turmeric spice, water, ground pepper, and coconut oil. It is good for any kind of inflammation.

One of my coworkers got bit by a copperhead a week ago. He's miserable. Stay safe. These snakes are no joke for sure.

I don't get to get shot like this very often so I thought I'd share.

This is what I'm seeing outside this morning.  Woke up to 24° and crystal clear after a nice snow overnight,


This is what I'm seeing inside,  that's Avalanche and the white cat (no my cat's don't have names and he's gotten a lot more tan over the years.)  They've been cuddled like that most of the morning!


Huskies and cats don't get along .....

ETA:  I don't think we got above our high of 33° yesterday.  Avalanche wanted out and I think he was back at the front door two minutes after he wanted out.  16:30 and we're at 30 heading south to the low 20's overnight!!!  (( and this is south by damn Texas!!!!! ))

That is awesome! I've been hearing of all kinds of places that don't often receive snow, getting snow this year, and to me it's even unusual how "early" in the season it's happening!

Second pic could not be any prettier or sweeter. I LOVE that pic, Al. That is too cute.

I think I'm okay you have snow and we don't. On the other hand though it was 13 degrees the other night and we didn't have snow. If it's going to be that cold we might as well be snow.

Has anyone used the Lupine brand leashes?? Took Sky into town with me today and she sat through my doctor's visit with no problem - about 2hours! - stopped at the gas station, came out and she'd chewed through another 15 foot leash. (( This is like number 4 or 5, I'm not sure which! )) Lupin has a "Even if chewed" guarantee but is the leash good, do they honor their guarantee the third or fifth time???

I currently have a Lupine leash and so far I love it more than any other leash I've used. She hasn't chewed through it yet though so I'm not sure on how many leashes they'll give you for buying the one.

Mars is on his third Lupine leash-- twice replaced through their guarantee. Don't know if there's a limit. I decided to purchased a rope leash. Mars has not chewed through that one and not for lack of trying. Very Happy

We switched to a rope leash, too, and we've been having much better luck with it, despite Misty thinking it's an ultra-long rope toy. Wink

Happy Got Ya day Sasha!! My Calendar and the Pita-Pata tell me that Sasha's been with me for 6 years! Really!?!?!

After my initial experiences with he food aggression, I wasn't sure if she was going to become (or remain) a member of the household or not - but over the years she (and I) have adapted to each others quirks and she's a lot of enjoyment for an old man.

I've set the pool up behind the trailer and she's the only one who has any interest in it - and then it's nothing more than to stand in it and get a drink - silly dog!!

Like any Husky, she has a mind of her own and like any female - well, better not go there!!!

I use Lupine leashes and collars, and they have been great. Luckily I haven't had the chewing problems.

I had to follow up on all the problems I've been havin with Sasha ... she's really turning into quite a different Husky.

A few days ago, when it was food time, she saw the back door was open so she decided to make a break for it.  Nothing odd there, right?

She wandered around outside, took a wade through the pool and came to the front door and woo'd at me.  So I've been letting her have more freedom ...

Watched a truck go by this morning and she just stood in the front yard and watched it, no barking, no running, no hassle.

I've watched her from inside to see what she's doing ... she wanders, may run a little, may go toward the back of the property, may take a trip through the pool (and come in with dirty wet feet!) but isn't the least bit interested in wandering off.  I think I could grow to like that!!


As I was listening to the local EMS on radio some person had been bitten on his little toe by a baby rattler (baby's are bad, they can't / don't know how to judge the amount of venom to inject.  Surprised they didn't transport him to hospital -- yep, it's that time of year again!


All my pups have decided that today's a good day to stay inside or on the porch.  Winds gusting to 35 or so; finally had to shut my back patio door - there's a lot of dust in that wind so everything is gritty!  
Weather service says:

Quote :
...HIGH WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM CDT /7 PM MDT/
THIS EVENING...

* TIMING...This morning through until this evening.

* WINDS...West 35 to 45 mph with gusts to around 60 mph.

... and it can quit any time now!!!!!!

Al - Z'ev is a clingy one also. I can open the back door and he will go out to pee poop but mostly he wants to be back inside PDQ. And, if Ami is outside, Z'ev will basically cling to the back door until I let him him. He does like being outside if one of us is out but even then, he's within a 50' radius. Questions is, for Sasha AND Z'ev...is this stay close permanent or a phase as they develop confidence?

Thankfully, our winds have died down, more in the teens with gusts in the 20's. But...we don't get grit, we get mud. Which later becomes grit. But, at least its not airborne grit and Bob makes quick work of it.
