Jango's Getting Bigger Than Mojo!
My big baby boy, almost 9 months old now, at 75lbs. He had surgery just after Christmas, to get the oral papillomas removed from his mouth, after they started growing huge and getting way out of control. They were so bad, even with his mouth closed you could still see them pushing out, and he stopped eating for a while... they were visibly starting to bother him. $1800 later, (oy...) the vet removed over 100 of them! O___o He's been on probiotics for the last month now, and his mouth is healing up very nicely, and is almost all better.

The weather is getting much milder now, for winter, so I'm going to start his bite development training in the very near future.

Jesus... poor dog. Did you get the border collie checked too, to see if he's caught it? Where do you think Jango picked it up?

How big do you think he'll be at 12 months? :P

Yep, we checked Tobi, and he's fine, no sign of the warts anywhere. Same with Mo and Penny. I'm pretty sure it only effects young (or really old) dogs with lower immune systems, and Jango just never had a really good start in that department. Garbage Gut at 5 months old. Kidney infection right after getting his undescended testicle removed. And then shortly after he got better from that the Papillomas started.

Tobi was born on a farm, and is healthy as a damn horse. Mojo, ex working dog, and no health problems at all. Penny came from a backyard breeder, but is now manageable with her health issues, and has some skin and food allergies.

Jango's litter was accidental, but I know that his grandsire is a registered import from Germany. Who knows what the health background of the parents is though, but Jango's sire is barely 3 years old now and hasn't had any health issues. Don't know about the Dam, she's older and retired now.

Jango was the runt of the litter though, so maybe that might have something to do with it. He's good in every other way though... eating and drinking well, good solid stool now, lots of energy, healthy coat, REALLY strong!! Being the runt, I doubt he'll be one of those Rotties that makes it to 130lbs. If he hits 100lbs I'll be happy enough. :-P I don't need a huge Rottie. His brother and sister are both way bigger than him.

I may be coming to visit Toronto in the spring, I'm aiming for June. Would it be alright if I crashed at your guys' place again? I'll be bringing Jango and Penny this time. My Mom wants to see them. :-P

How's the Taffster doing?? :-D

I'll have to talk to Cent' about that, if you're coming East and need a place to crash for a few days or whatever. Three people and three dogs in this tiny space is a lot after all... lol X3

Taffy's fine, relatively speaking, just getting older. She'll be 5 in April this year (already, can you believe it?). Her hips pop from time to time (which they never used too), but otherwise you'd never know she's getting older. She hasn't slowed down at all.
