    For all the griping and bitching and moaning she does... Ilsa is, at her core, a sweet dog.

    We decreased her prednisone ever so slightly, as well as put her on a low dose of antibiotics. She's feeling a lot better, leaps and bounds above what she was like even a few days ago.

    She chewed on a hard bone (whee!) for a solid hour today, I was so happy. Ada was not happy though.. she wanted the bone for herself!

    "See? I try to make heart with my front legs!"

    "...GAWD... will she ever get sick of that darn bone?"

    "Ummmm... can you make her miserable again, so I can have bone?"

    Awesome, awesome photograph. Controlling depth of field is the one thing I miss about my point and shoot digital cameras that I really love for too many other reasons to ever give up.

    I see you have a snake, I have snakes too. Have to get their pictures up here one of these days...

    Aw thanks Eddie! I must say, I don't think I could ever go back to a normal camera. I grew up using film SLRs, but the versatility of a digital SLR is... just awesome. I'm loving this lens too, it's my f/1.4 prime, love it love it love it.

    PS - what kind of snakes do you have? I'd love to see photos!

    Great photos Sizzle. I'm glad Ilsa is feeling better. I do have to say that one where Ada is right up there touching that bone with her foot is a testament to Ilsa sweetness.

    Now we should start calling Ronin "Poor Ronin the Unloved." ;)

    I'm really glad she's started feeling better! I'm sure Ada is missing the bones though:D

    Ilsa is the undisputed high queen of the house - she keeps perfect order in the house, there are no squabbles over bones, food, toys... nothing. If Ada and Ronin are getting rowdy, all it takes is for Ilsa to walk into the room, and they instantly stop. It's pretty friggin' amazing. :)

    I can only hope that my next bitch can "reign supreme" as well as Ilsa does. I can't fathom a household run by Ronin or Ada... what a nightmare!

    Niiiiiice Snakes (I too am a reptile owner)

    I love the one of Ronin. I will own a Dobe one day... I will. Ada is such a cutie though.

    Awwww... I has luvz for Ronin! I love all the Sizzle crew! How could I not?

    I'm glad Isla is doing better. She's a good girl. I'll be sad when she goes..... and if either of your dobe dogs were man or dog eating rutheless monsters, there'd be no Ada. But there she is.... whole and cute as ever!

    I've never seen a dog do that with their paws. Ada, next time I see you, I'll give you cookies (if mom lets me). I have a whole bunch of snacks in my closet. My boys get soo excited when I open the cookie closet! They know only good things come out of there.

    Of course you can give her cookies... whether she takes them or not, is another story! She's a notorious cookie snob. ;)

    I'll just have to take some for Ilsa and Ronin too. Whatever she likes... it's quite possible I have it. I got soooo excited about Shye and River that I bought WAAAAYYY too many different kinds of cookies. Pretty much anything without corn and biproducts was an option... and most of it that smelled good to me ended up in the cart. I figured... shoot I want to eat this... of course they will! :rolleyes:

    Yes, I'm strange. I know ;)

    Oh no no no, you're not strange - you should have seen how excited I got when I bought my first box of Cloud Star Provenance cookies - OMG they smell like heaven! I'll try to remember to bring a few tomorrow, so the boys can experience the wonderfulness that is Cloud Star Provenance!

    Oh - the paws - she's done that since she was a puppy, I think she saw the cats doing it to keep their toes warm, and figured she'd try it too!
