Re: Scruff the Schnauzer, Rest in Peace 10/31/15

We took Toby for 4 mile trail hike Sunday afternoon. He was so excited to be totally free to run and jump. He carried sticks, picked up big brown oak leaves, smelled where the squirrels had been,...

Re: Scruff the Schnauzer, Rest in Peace 10/31/15

Here is Toby.... (new name, unless the grand children have something different). He is a black schnauzer, whereas, Scruff was a "salt & pepper."

We picked him up in Boaz, Alabama today. It was a...

Re: Scruff the Schnauzer, Rest in Peace 10/31/15

This is a picture of Scruff taken back in July of this year (2015). We miss him so bad. The house seems empty without him. We are looking for a puppy as the grandkids want us to get one.

Well the last 30 hours or so have been really tough. This has devastated us to no end. Tears no doubt.

Re: Scruff the Schnauzer

Thank you!

But, unfortunately, he's not coming back. We've looked all over for him....... not a sign of a struggle, etc. I suspect in the fight his neck was broken and it was over rather...

Scruff seems to be doing just fine. His weight is stable and appetite is still good.

Re: Scruff the Schnauzer

For what it's worth, down through the years, I've always added some human food in Scruff's diet. I've been accused of giving him gourmet meals...:D As I may have stated early on, my old mutts did...

Re: treats and things

Yes, I was amazed how well my Schnauzer likes frozen cut green beans. And, he will eat them thawed.

As for his usual dog bone biscuit treat, we had always given him halves (cut in half). So,...

Re: Scruff the Schnauzer

I feed him around 7:00 am and 5:30 to 6:00 pm, with injections about 15 to 30 minutes after each meal.

When would a sudden drop in Glucose Level most likely be expected?

As for a trail...
