    Farewell my lovely Jonna

    For well more than a third of my life, Jonna has been by my side. But my lovely little princess, who loved treats and to please me, who I never really needed to train to be well-behaved, whose lead I years ago could hand over to my youngest nephew S out on long forest walks and tell him that...

    Diabetes Insipidus update + borrowed time limbo.

    Some might remember my thread from September 2020, There is something wrong with Blomma, where it turned out she have Diabetes Insipidus. To put it simply, it has nothing to do with insulin, it involves a substance from the pituitary gland, and the kidneys, with the symptoms increased thirst...

    I'm tired of 2020, Jonna isn't well

    I was supposed to have done a No water for 12 hours, out to pee late in the night, up at 06 to get a morning pee sample-test with Blomma on Friday, due to her Diabetes Insipidus, see this thread, but Jonna, 15 years, was a bit more tired than usual on Wednesday evening, didn't eat Thursday's...

    There is something wrong with Blomma

    Not expecting anyone to be able to offer an epiphany, I only wanted to write it down, and get it a little bit off my chest. Blomma is 12, spayed (so no uterus = not pyometra), and less than 3 weeks ago she started to drink more water. She has gone from drinking up to max around 1 litre per day...

    If shaking yourself dry is useless, why do dogs bother?

    I've been up on our roof to fix it from leaking, came in all sweaty, and decided to take a quick shower, before having something to eat. For some reason (possibly laziness), I decided to only take a dress + slippers with me to the shower, no towel, and thought **If the dogs can shake dry, so can...

    Anyone else going to the Gothenburg FEI European Championships?

    Was there without the dogs today, Thursday, and overheard that there was quite a few of the spectators which didn't speak Swedish. Which made me think that I perhaps should mention here on HHO, that if anyone happens to be in Gothenburg for the FEI European Championships, and look at the...

    2 type of dog owners in veterinarian's waiting room.

    Blomma have one less tooth, but I'm a bit proud over that both the veterinarian who checked her before the tooth operation, and the veterinarian who did the operation, said that she have very clean teeth for her age (she's 9 years). But sadly you can tell that her teeth is very well used (she...

    Nothing too bad, but I've had better mornings.

    Late last night I was checking the teeth on all my 3 bitches, and discovered that Blomma have broken a tooth, so I set my alarm to go up early to phone my veterinarian. Woke up around 1 hour before my alarm went off, because the itchy bites I've gotten the last few days needed some soothing...

    From Horse in bubble wrap to why "barefoot is a bad idea"...

    Stumbled across a few photos on Facebook and the internet, mostly funny, but WARNING, the why "barefoot is a bad idea" is probably not what you think. Even though I've heard people talk on HHO about wrapping your horse in bubble wrap, I didn't think they meant literally... "Never...

    Sorry for showing this, but is there any chance the horse survived?

    I did a search on YouTube videos with Akhal-Teke horse races the other day, and I came across what I presume is a Russian video (for some, to me unknown, reason the sound doesn't seem to work?!), I now can't get it out of my head and feel that I have to ask if anybody on HHO knows if there is...

    About crossbreeding and defining a backyard breeder.

    Miss Candy posted a question on another thread and I didn't want to hijack that thread, so I'm posting my answer in this new thread. My view on fashionable crossbreeds is that I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. Because my experience of such breeders is that they live in la la la la...

    I'm back after (insert shocked smiley) 2 years, who is still here?

    To try and cut a long story short, I needed a break from internet and logged out from HHO, however the break got a little longer than I planned because my computer died and since I put almost all my money on my dogs and cats (still 3 bitches and 2 cats, so nothing has changed there) it took a...

    A legend says that Allah created the Arabian horse of the wind. :D

    A legend says that Allah created the Arabian horse of the wind. When the horse later came to Allah and complained of thirst in the heat, sand in the nostrils and sore feet, Allah created the camel and wondered if the vain horse had preferred to look like that. The horse snorted in horror and...

    I think I cracked my skull doing *head-desk*, Rottaf anybody? ACHClub?

    I knew I shouldn't have looked but I got curious on which "breeds" one of those hybrid dog registries would register, though I didn't get that far, number five on the list = Rottaf! Have you guessed the cross yet? If not, Rottaf = Afghan hound x Rottweiler! There...

    Do you remember the Iceland horses going through the ice?
