OMG OMG OMG!
I'm SO excited that Tango will be staying on Chaz!
Obviously, I'm no where near a transport route, but if you need any help with anything let me know
Yeah I'm super excited! I will probably have questions about Chi's once he gets here (Assuming he will be a good fit) I'm mostly concerned about their dietary needs and finding an appropriate harness for his special shape XD Squeeeee
If it helps at all, mine are all on premade raw. My smallest (3lbs) eats 2oz a day, and my largest with a HUGE metabolism (Chloe, 7.5lbs) eats 5oz a day. Rylie (4lbs) gets 2oz a day, and Tucker (5lbs) gets 3oz a day.
None of mine are picky- chis tend to be vacuum cleaners when it comes to food!
Okay first I sent out PMs before ever checking here, so I guess y'all are already all caught up :rofl1:
He's eaten premade raw before (Nature's Variety Instinct chicken medallions) and did FANTASTIC on it. He ate Orijen initially, Acana for a few weeks, and for the last month or so he's been eating TOTW. He's pretty flexible and I have never seen him have loose stool, even switching foods cold turkey. He also has finally figured out how to eat a raw egg, except the shell. He eats just over half a cup of kibble a day (a heaping 1/4 cup twice a day), and when he was on the raw medallions he ate 3 medallions a day, except twice a week I gave him 4. I *think* each medallion is an ounce.
As for a harness, I swear I have tried on EVERY style of harness and nothing fits right lol. I haven't tried the RuffWear harnesses because there's nowhere here to try them on at, but I hear they're popular with a lot of tripods. He does, however, have a life vest that I use as a harness/seat belt. For walking I mostly just use a collar, because the life vest is so bulky (he already has a Lupine collar and a leather collar lol). He has grown a bit since I went harness shopping, though, so there might be something that will fit better now!
I wonder if a custom harness vest would work well for him? I usually order from Chloe's Four Legged Fashions, but I'm not sure she's making harnesses anymore:
Izzy is on TOTW so that works out perfectly! Now... It's time for a transport thread!
:banana::headbanger::banana: :cheers: :thumbsupsmileyanim: :thumbup: :first:
So... Could I get some more Tango pictures? I need more pretties to show my friends XD I love the one with him in the Santa hat <3
I'll get some more up in a few minutes here
Yay!! So happy for you guys and Tango!! Sqqquuueeee
Would a Puppia harness or one of those wrap harnesses fit him? Or is it due to him missing a leg vs size?
More peektures! Some are older, and all are from my cell. But here they are lol
A couple days after surgery, still wrapped up and in the hospital
Helping me play receptionist at work lol
Tails are fun to nom
This is from when I was dogsitting and he went to work (and almost everywhere else) with me
Crazy dogs *sigh*
He really doesn't like baths
So he had to go pout and ignore me
Chasing his girlfriend
He is WAY too cute!
It's more because of his leg than his size. He's 6 pounds and fairly tall, so not the teeniest of dogs (though to me he's tiny lol). But most harnesses slip like crazy without the other leg there. surprisingly the front clip harnesses are the worst. I tried something similar to a puppia on him and it didn't work, but he has filled out a bit more now so while I'm out sizing him for a travel crate, I'll try some of those on too!
Wheeeeee! <3 He's so cute, it's killing me!
I think a puppia harness might shift around on him since his second leg won't be there to keep it in place. He'll probably be a receptionist with me too, I've already told my boss
Well he's good at it lol! He settles amazingly well for a crazy puppy.
Maybe one of these? It also has a handle for easy lifting. I got one for Stryder for flyball last year and loved it.
