Natural Balance and punching things with my paws like Mike Tyson

kids, dogs, itches, basketballs, strangers, life

Favorite Toy:
Holee Roller! Thanks mom!

Favorite Food:
plain meat of any kind: fish, chicken, duck, venison, Natural Balance Duck and Potato cans, duck jerky

Favorite Walk:
forest preserves and state parks, anywhere wild, unkempt, and freedom to roam

Best Tricks:
"open the door" though she doesn't really do it, it means to jump up at the door knob; "kiss" does not involve licking, just sticking her nose out to be kissed; "jump" is straight up in the air; "shake" is obvious but she's really overzealous about it ; )

Arrival Story:
We found Tuula (formerly Alisha) at South Suburban Humane Society. She was an abuse/neglect case pending investigation and was brought in with her brother, Adler, and some 5-9 other dogs. She was extremely shy at first and did not walk, much less stand or show any interest in people so she didn't have much of a chance. We fell in love and took her home

Tuula is a true miracle dog. She shows improvement everyday and she's really coming out of her shell. Coming from the conditions that she did, we weren't sure if she could be rehabbed but she's come such a long way in such a short period of time. The great thing about Tuula is that she is not a typical, indiscriminately loving dog. One has to earn her trust, respect, and ultimately, love, which makes our bond all the more special. She's sweet, funny, quirky, and a complete weirdo, and we wouldn't have her any other way.

Forums Motto:
names Tuula Tallulah, don't wear it out

Mum and dad took me to the vet and it turns out that I had a skin infection! They got a medicated shampoo and some antibiotics along with topical steroids (which I HATE) and in two days the rash is all gone. I still bite a little but nothings visible. The vet suggested I stay on the anti-histamines anyhow as there may also be allergies. I feel sooo much better but mum wants me to get a skin test anyhow. We'll seeeeeeee. In other news, mums sure I'm a coydog! Neat-o!


Scratch, scratch, scratch!

I have allergies! It's true, I've got hives EVERYWHERE and I'm always scratching and biting. Mom and dad finally took me off that dismal shelter feed, Purina, yesterday, and put me on Natural Balance Fish and Potato (an allergy formula). Daddy complains about the price. Tomorrow I'm going to the vet to see if they can find out what's the matter. Cross your paws and wish me luck! I'll update soon!
