Back from the Vet
Well after sitting there for well over an hour after our appt, the doc took 5 min to look at Titan, gave him 5 shots and said just feed him more. His heart-worm test came back negative so that was great news. My man did so well, didn’t flinch at the shots nor did he act up in the waiting room. Even when there was a Labrador jumping all over. He did scare the kittens they had out front. He...
Well tomorrow (monday) is a big day for Titan, he finally gets to go to the vet for his first check-up sense he’s been with us. I’m worried and excited at the same time. I’ll let everyone know how it goes tomorrow.
It's been a while.
Long time no update because nothing really has happened. The days go by and nothing seems to change. Sadly I still can’t seem to get weight on him, but we are trying everything. Also now thanks to my fiancee working at the local shelter we now have some help to get his medical taken care of. I will keep everyone posted.
Our first outing as well as some great news.
Well the day has finally arrived, the day when he ignored his abuser to listen and hold command for me. I could have never been more proud, then the 4th of July hit. I decided to take him to the local parade and see how he did, with people and sirens and what have you. Well let me say this, he took on 3 kids at once! 3 little kids, about 6 years old came crowding around him. He’s never...
Oh joy, everyone’s favorite day. Bath day. Thank the gods I had my fiancee here to help today. The fun part about todays bath was we tired an oatmeal bath. Basically I coated him in an oatmeal mixture. It included oatmeal, aloe vera, tee, and some sage. It smelled good. We will see what happens in a few days after his coat normally starts to dandruff. The easiest way to give him a bath is to...
So Much Fun
I know it’s been a little while sense I’ve updated this, thats because we are having such a good time playing! I’ve finally got Titan bringing his toy back to play fetch. He’s also now getting a lot more freedom around the house. Well that is until his fat head hits the table spilling water all over. Poor boy flew through the house into his kennel. It took him 2 days to...
Today was a big step and it almost made me cry. For the first time sense having Titan, I got kisses! Just a quick little lick on my nose but kisses none the less. It’s a good day.

Raw Dog Food
Well after doing some research and getting only half of what I wanted, I’m going to strike out and give this a try. Making homemade raw dog food. Lately I’ve been giving him beef added to his kibble. So now to save some money I’m going to try it. When I was buying the packaged chicken sticks I paid $20 for a 10 pound bag, well he needed to eat 2 ounces per ten pounds of body...

Progress, the Good and the Bad
Well let’s start with the bad parts. Yesterday I let him out for his night time potty break and let him off leash like normal. He just runs out, pees, then comes charging back. Well this time he decided to take off and chase the geese that have taken up residents in our neighbors yard. I yelled and he ignored me. So we took the long way and I had to correct him back over every step he took....
I figured out his skin issue!
I finally figured out one of Titan’s big issues. All this time I’ve been trying to get his coat nice and glossy. Nothing has worked. But because of something silly, I figured out how to fix it. No chicken! I switched him to an all red meat diet. I found this out because we ran out of the good chicken sticks we were feeding him and gave him hamburger meat. After just 2 days of that his...
Well I know it’s been a while, and so much has happened. First of all my brother came to live with us for a little while. Titan did great, the boys got along well. There was one little step backwards. In light of Titan being, well not the brightest crayon in the box, my brother would say things while he was out. He used the dreaded stay word. So to stop the confusion before it started to...

A Rescue Mission
Over the past 6 months me and my fiancee have been rehabilitating a doberman Pinscher that we rescued. This is his story. When we got him his spine was curved and he was greatly under weight. He had sores all over him and was over all in bad shape. Our basic training has been under way since I received Titan and his manners have improved greatly. Today’s obedience work included working...
