Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Haven't been on in awhile but wanted to post that on Sunday 4/13 it has been 1 year since I adopted Kodiak!  When I got him he was dirty, smelly and underweight. He would cower when you went to pet him, and got into several fights with Nikko and Kodiak.  Slowly he has been building up his confidence and now he is a healthy 60lbs, and has been a great addition to the pack!  He has been playing good with the other two!  He loves his belly rubs too Wink We have had some bumps in the road (some fights, a Thanksgiving turkey incidence, several breakouts from his crate), but it's all worth it!

LOL.

Well, I was having my parent's over for Thanksgiving dinner (they live out of town), and had a nice 20lb turkey for the meal. I took it out of the freezer a day too late, so I had to have it soaking in the sink to get it all of the way defrosted.

I made sure to keep an eye on it, so that the dogs were not left unattended with a turkey in the sink. I had to run a couple of errands, so I put the dogs in their crates and left for about 40 minutes. Now, Kodiak has had a past of breaking out of his crate, so I bought reusuable zip ties to make sure he could not get out.

I come home, walk in and notice that there is water all over the floor and counter. I look over and the turkey was completely unwrapped and huge chunks missing from the breast. I was shocked! Kodiak comes walking up with the bag of giblets in his mouth!!! He had broken through 4 zip ties and attacked the turkey.

At first I was sooo upset! I didn't know how the heck I was going to get another turkey the night before Thanksgiving, and it sure would not have time to defrost.

It worked out though..the store had plenty of turkeys, and I just bought a smaller one, which turned out to be plenty. Dinner was good and all was well....until late Thanksgiving night Sad He had explosive poo's for 5 straight days!!! It took almost 2 weeks of constant Pepto, pumpkin, and Immodium for him to get completely normal!

I can look back and laugh about it now though Very Happy
