Well, I went and did it. Got myself a beautiful pitbull terrier today. She quiet, lovable, and relaxed. We decided on Bella for her name. She's 13 weeks old and seems pretty smart. The whole family loves her and we're even thinking of getting another tomorrow. I've got my eye on an Egyptian Dingo they have at the humane society, but we'll see. O0

I'm thinking of training her to be a yote dog. I know there's a few guys around here that use them and I'll look into it more here in the coming weeks.

Pics are forthcoming. O0

When I was a child, I lived as a child. When I became a man, I put away my childish things and became a Gutpiler!

I thought you were already married? ???  Oh... forgot... polygamy is legal in UT. ;D O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Well, I ended up nixing the dingo. This pit is so shy, we thought it best to just get one of her more active siblings to help her adjust. So, we got the male today. It was really odd when we brought Bella back to her former home. All the dogs went crazy over her sniffing and playing with her. When any of them would demand our attention, she would force them away and sit in our laps.

I'm really excited! O0 Turns out both parents have been used for hunting in some fashion, whether it's just chasing jacks or even baiting in yotes. We've also hired a police dog trainer who's new to the area. He's going to help us make sure they get what they need when they need it and in return he gives us a 50% discount and he can use us as references. O0

BC, I wouldn't make use of polygamy even if it WAS legal. ONE woman is about all I can handle. :shock:

KS I would reccomend getting these 2 books.



Many of us think of our dogs not as pets but as full-fledged members of our families. If you own a dog-or are thinking about getting one-A Member of the Family is the ultimate resource for integrating your canine companion into the life of your household.

What should you do if you need to leave your dog alone at home while everyone is at work? Are you providing him with the exercise he needs? How can you make sure your children and dog get along well? How do events in the human family-such as birth, marriage, or divorce-affect the family dog? All of these questions and many more are answered by bestselling author Cesar Millan in his new book.

Brimming with practical tips and techniques, A Member of the Family addresses the most common issues and questions that emerge over the course of a personís lifetime relationship with a dog, explaining what it takes to be a good dog owner. From choosing the right dog for your particular familyís needs to setting the rules of the house (yes, you and your family are in charge) to finding a quality veterinarian and monitoring your dogís health, Cesar offers essential advice for a harmonious home. No topic is left untouched. With success stories from Cesarís fans and clients throughout, A Member of the Family includes sections on travel and doggie day care, the needs of an aging dog, and dealing with the death of a pet and its long-lasting effects on a family. A chapter on dogs and children is written from the perspective of Cesarís sons, Andre and Calvin, and one on the role of the strong female pack leader is by Cesarís wife, Ilusion.

In his frank, simple, and calm manner, Cesar acts as your personal guide as you build a fulfilling, satisfying relationship with your dog.


And


Here are some examples of what my book is about:

* There has been much teeth gnashing in the profession in recent
years over relinquishing annual vaccinations for
distemper/hepatitis/parvo virus (DHPPV) for dogs and three-way
distemper (PCT) for cats. Think about this: People receive one vaccination
early in life and it lasts a lifetime. Why are animals any different? They
apparently aren't. Check out http://critteradvocacy.org. Dog DHPPV and cat
PCT if given after six months of age are in all probability good for life. The
American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) should be commended because
they led the way. They felt vaccinations given after about six months were
good for many, many years but had to compromise with the money hungry
hardliners and agree to ONLY three years officially. How's that for caring
doctors? Even the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) reluctantly
admitted that there were no studies showing these vaccinations needed to be
repeated on adult animals. Most vets still INSIST on doing them at least every
one to three years and for the life of the animal. This is not only apparently
unnecessary but can be a health risk to your pet (and your pocket book).
Rabies and leukemia shots are serious cancer threats to cats. In California,
they are classed as carcinogens. 22,000 cats are reported to die annually
from vaccination induced sarcomas. You are not benefiting your animal by
over vaccinating!!

* Rabies vaccine after 6 months of age is good for THREE years for
BOTH dogs and cats. How often does your vet recommend them?

* There is a vaccine for corona virus for dogs and there has NEVER
been a recorded case of the disease (possibly one) in animals past 8
weeks of age. Some vets recommend this yearly!!!!! FIV vaccine for cats
contains the wrong serotypes. The serotype that causes aids in cats in this
country is B. The two serotypes in the vaccine are A & D. There is no
cross-immunity. The vaccine is worthless!! Both should never have been
licensed by the FDA, but were. Think about that. Check
http://critteradvocacy.org.

* Insisting that dogs have to be tested annually for heartworm before
administering preventative: Ivermectin, the active ingredient in Heartguard,
is used as part of the treatment a vet gives to an infected dog to remove the
microfilaria (heartworm babies that circulate in the blood stream) at doses
many times higher than in the monthly preventative. In fact it has been found
that if Heartguard (Ivermectin) is given monthly to an infected animal for 12 to
18 months, it will actually cure the infection. I know of no monthly preventative
that will harm an infected dog (short of an allergy) and the labels state as
much. Pre-testing is totally unnecessary.

* Testing for Lymes disease: No less an astute body than the AVMA itself
states that 25% to 85% of normal animals in Lymes areas will routinely test
positive and, since these animals don't come down with symptoms any more
often that those that test negative, the test obviously is NOT a diagnosis of
Lymes disease and is NOT an indication for treatment. The test is basically
worthless as a diagnosis of the disease. Thousands of tests are run daily and
positive animals are treated. A total waste of your money! Five day treatment
with inexpensive tetracycline to an animal showing symptoms (acute, multiple
leg arthritis) will give a dramatic response in just a couple of days. If symptoms
reoccur in a few days after stopping and a repeat treatment gives another
dramatic improvement -- that's as close to positive as you are probably going
to get and continuing treatment for 30 days should then be all that's needed.

* Vaccination for Lymes disease: None of the 27 veterinary colleges in
the U.S. recommend vaccinating for Lymes disease and only 8 will
even do it if the pet owner insists. The other 19 refuse to even vaccinate
for it according to a recent survey. Minnesota is an endemic state (where the
disease is found) but the University of Minnesota diagnostic lab told me they
see only about one case a year. It is very easily treated. I haven't seen a case
in over a decade. Why would you vaccinate for this or test for it?

* Testing an animal's titer (level of antibodies in the blood stream) in
place of annual vaccinations is the new rage. It is done to supposedly
determine if the animal is protected. It is in my opinion a monetary replacement
for loss of vaccination revenue due to decreased frequency of vaccinations.
When did your doctor ever suggest drawing blood to check your titer for a
vaccination you might have received decades ago??? They may draw blood,
but not for that. It's never routinely done for two-legged animals -- why is it
pushed for four-legged?? The AVMA says that in theory it has merit, but in
actuality it is NOT an accurate indication of an animal's degree of immunity.
Animals with no discernible titer can still have ample protection because this
test totally disregards cellular immunity, which is much longer lasting and very
difficult to measure. This is basically another unjustified/make work procedure.
Check http://critteradvocacy.org again.

These are just a small number of examples of ways the modern day
veterinarian is hyping the costs of owning pets. The book explains and
highlights MANY more money-saving suggestions and gives the
reader the knowledge to know when to incur medical expenses and
when not to. Some of this is so unjustified it could be considered
fraud or at least unethical in my opinion. What do you think?

My website is www.oldcountryvet.com. I guarantee the book will be
enlightening, and I bet you can't put it down once you start reading it.
It will even bring out a laugh or two.

Dr. James L. Busby
