IVY, that pup you're getting is adorable I'll bet. The Havenese are related to the Maltese. We have a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix & she is just a lover, she loves everyone. She wrapped my DH around her little paw right in the beginning & for a man who said he didn't like dogs he sure is smitten with her, she's his baby. She would sit on your lap all day if you would let her. My DH has a niece that has a Havanese, but hers is all white. I'm sure you're going to love her.
Danz, wow sounds like you have been busy, don't overdo it, if you're like me if I get a day I have some extra energy & I'm not hurting too bad I tend to do that then I pay for it the next day.
Well I took both of the little chicks that were in the hatcher back out to the brooder this morning. The one that had the leg problem is running all over the place & is doing really well. It's now eating & acting like all of the other chicks. It has some catching up to do, but I feel like it's on the mend now. It just shows that you shouldn't give up on them even if you think they're not going to make it. I don't think you could tell this one has had such a struggle looking at it now. I have to get my hatcher cleaned up now & ready for the next eggs to go in I think Thurs. & that will include my Royal Palm turkey eggs that I got shipped to me. I can't wait to see how that turns out. HeChicken, I haven't candled those turkey eggs from that guy we got eggs from lately. My plastic egg trays are supposed to be here today, so I will be moving a bunch of eggs to those, so maybe I'll do it then. I just have a feeling they're not going to turn out as well as the ones I had shipped in.
Sapphire, I'm sorry to hear about your chicks, sometimes they just don't make it for one reason or the other. It was sad for me when I lost those 3 that were fully formed chicks that died in the shell recently. You hate to lose any, but it happens.
My knee is sure giving me fits, I didn't have a good night again last night. I guess if it doesn't let up soon I'm going to have to make an appt. to see the Orthopedic Dr. again. I know he's probably going to want to do those knee injections again & they're so expensive. They did help, but unfortunately they only last 6 months & then have to be done again. I'm already past 6 months now. Our insurance changed at the first of the year, so now we have a lot more out of pocket expenses just like a lot of people these days. They're going to keep it up until none of us will be able to afford health care.
