    did you read my story of blitz and bows bb? She lived essentially on her own for years. I know a dog can do it if he has to, living largely on mice. i am glad the snow is gone for food will be far easier for him to find..if he keeps coming up..then i would be inclined to belive that he is coming for something more..some kind of contact. Blitz returned to a lovely life and u would never have known she had such hardships..until she snuck out and brought back a belly full of mice for someone's puppies. Weaning she thought..was completly her responsibility. I will hope he keeps coming back. you are probably his last chance. maybe he senses in you what i do.

    Maybe. I saw him again today he did'nt hang around as much today. But i did the holy rule of don't feed a stray because it will stick around forever. But I broke and today after the afternoon feeding a thre home a few peices of meat and he practically swallowed it whole and then looked at me and wagged his tail for the first time.

    Ah i can't bond with him im gonna end up being the "Crazy Dog Lady".

    sometimes there isn't anybody else....sometimes it has to be you..if it isn't then what will happen? If nothing else you can help him to find a new home..or have him put down gently. A wild death is a horrible one..sooner or later it will be a hurt foot...or a mouth infection..or a trap. Lov4pits you know what i am talking about. i am a prime example of too little help too late...the ride never shows up until i have walked miles in the heat and am throwing up beside the road and the car is in site..never ever when i am at the starting....they didn't find my jaw problem until the joints were shot..i was the perverbial pass the buck cause no one wanted to deal with it and found only quick fixes by either not looking at all, or letting me be someone else's problem. It wasn't fair..help him if you can for me..if i was there, i would do it.

    Oh smkie I will definatly help him. I just always have this voice in the back of my head that talks about money and such. i am hoping to get him to where he trusts me and I can find him a new home and fix him up. I just can't fall for him. Of course i said this about Babe and look how that turned out?

    had a little dog that i helped out against all odds...my friend advertised him while i housebroke him..and he is happy now..so there can be a good ending when the ending isn't with you..maybe your local paper can do a story about him..and somebody else will feel towards him the way i do..alone just sucks..sounds like you have a good start..he wagged his thanks and i am sure it was heartfelt..they know the good people!

    Yeah i feel that too I was thinking about him and the name Maxis popped in my head for whatever reason. So im going to refer to him as Maxis from now on it just fits him. I mean look at that pic and tell me you don't think it fits for whatever reason. I sit here worrying about him I always hold my breath when i don't see him and he does disappear for a few days at a time and i always wonder if he's gone for good.....

    He is a trouble maker though i guess he's been getting into garbage and like i said before killing chickens. Thats the other reason i worry and more of a drive to gain his trust and get him penned.

    He's not making trouble, he's just trying to survive, poor guy. Now, when Shiva and Kharma raid the garbage . . . that's making trouble, lol!
