Pyro left yesterday.
He is going to a friend. She owns, breeds, trials and shows Newfies. She also feeds raw and does only Rabies vax!
I talked to her today and while Pyro was a bit overwhelmed by all the HUUUUUGE black heads trying to sniff him yesterday he's doing better today. Except when one of her 2 yr old Newf's tried to playbow at him - scared the CRAP out of him!
We will be co-owning him and showing him in conformation IF he turns out ok and his heart is fine.
I took the pups to my vet for a pupcheck. All 4 pups knees were good. All but Pyro had good hearts.
Pyro has a skipping heartbeat. While most dogs hearts go ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump, - Pyro's went ta-dump, ta-dump ....... ta-dump, ta-dump, ta-dump ....... ta-dump ..... ta-dump, ta-dump (and so on).
Doc listened for a couple minutes and said that his heartbeat leveled out after a bit and was fine. He will go back for a recheck in a couple weeks to see if it was just the excitement of being at the vet or something more serious.
Flash is leaving tomorrow. He is going with the stud dog owner. She may have a show home for him, she's waiting to hear back.
That leaves me with Blaze (who's bite is off a bit - further confirming his status as a pet puppy) and Smoke (who is growing more and more on me).
I will be sure to get pictures of Pyro with his new herd o'Newfies and share them with everyone. He may just become the first Chinese Crested with a Water Dog title!!
