Big Dog Little Dog

Usually when we talk about Big Dog Little Dog (BDLD) in veterinary medicine, it is in relation to the injuries that result when a big dog attacks a little dog. In this case, it is just a cute puppy trying to be a big dog (though he does get bored with it after a short time)

This video was forwarded on by one of my brothers, and if it doesn't make you saw "awwww" then your heart is colder than the windchill here. ... Or, you may be a diehard reptile and amphibian conservationist. When talking about pandas one day, one such acquaintance of mine was heard to utter "those over-stuffed, fancy racoons." They may be that, but they are still awfully cute.

Baby Anteater

Strangely cute...in an ugly sort of way.

Spider Attacks Space Shuttle

I'm not the biggest fan of anything arachnoid, but I thought this was entertaining:

A Dilly of a Pickle

Once again, I have been terrible about updating this site. I have been plenty busy, which is the only lame excuse I can offer.

At any rate, we have a new addition to the pack that needs introducing. A little, sickly dachshund puppy had been coming into the clinic almost since the day he was born. He had a chronic respiratory issue that was difficult to diagnose and unresponsive to treatment. A runty little thing compared to his litter mates, it was feared that he may also have a liver condition. Since they wouldn't be able to sell him in such a condition, and they didn't have room for another pet at their place, euthanasia seemed to be the final option.

Long story short, he was not euthanized....he now lives with us! He had several very close calls early on and was on oxygen and a myriad of other treatments for awhile, but he is now doing very well. Originally named Pickles, his name has gradually changed to "Waldi," a traditional German dachshund name. Though he still may have some medical concerns that might show up in the future, for now, he is a happy puppy and an absolute joy! (These pics are a little old, and it shows! He has changed quite a bit already. I'll need to get some new ones of him)

Kid Jumping on Bed

No, not that kind of kid!

(thanks to my sister for the adorable forward)

(and, yes, I know I've been woefully tardy in posting things, but, I'll post something of more substance soon!)
