PostPosted: Fri Apr 01, 2016 7:28 am    Post subject: Tikki Tikva  Reply with quote

The devil mini monster is now 10˝ months old.  And she is evil!  Rather sweet though, when she does not bite, but will cuddle up on my lap when I need a nap on my recliner, and I love it, and she is wonderful with small children - actually she is wonderful with everyone except me, who she will bite when she feels like it!  Which is most of the time!

She is a funny little dog - looks sort of like a Doxie but with a shorter back and longer legs, but it is impossible to take photographs of her as she is  either rushing around outside on her tether or she is inside, zonking on the couch.  She is very skinny - ribs showing  - but has solid bones and muscles, with perfect joints.  But oh so skinny - 5.5kg so heavy for her size, and she is such an active little dog.

I also have a problem posting photographs now as TinyPic will not work with Windows 10, and I cannot get into my ancient PhotoBucket account.  Windows 10 is brilliant for most things, but it just will not let me post photos.  Maybe one day I will find out how.

Tikva's primary vet, Michal, a young girl [Ram, the big boss always looked after Pereg] comes here for basic things as the performance for me to take her to the surgery is just about impossible.  At the moment Tikki is still having worm pills every three months until after her first one, which was when I rescued her, not until her DoB, and after that it will be twice a year.  But as Parkworm has now travelled south from where it originated here in Ramat Gan, Tikva needs a shot [not a pill] every three months for life.

So Michal will come here for whatever is needed, although she cannot give the rabies shot which has to be done by Vadim, the Local Authority Vet - who turns up about four weeks after the yearly booster shots.

Today is the first anniversary  of losing my beloved Pereg.

Oh how I miss her but she is now free from that Monster called epilepsy.

Funny we have a white deaf cat (Mitzy ) that all of a sudden will grab and bite us even when patting him or if just in range

No new photographs of Tikva - she is only still when sleeping!  She has so many of Pereg's  behaviours, although Pereg did not bite [and IT still does at times].  But her barks are similar to let me know who is coming down the path - apart from her hound HOWL when she hears the icecream van chimes.  Pereg and Lexi used to sing when they heard the chimes - Tikva is a hound and she HOWLS!

Even though I thought 6 months old was too young for her to be spayed - I would have preferred three months after her first season - it was done and I do not have to worry about that, especially is she is outside in the unfence yard on a 12m tether most of the day.  Just as Pereg and Lexi were.  I am not sure about her weight - at the surgery when Michal took us to be spayed she weighed 6 kg but Michal always weighs her here on my scales - Tikki has to be weighed for the Parkworm shot - Michal weighs herself, then hoiks Tikva up - deducts her weight - and she is 5.5 kg.  

It is so much easier for me that Michal comes here than me trying to cope with taking Tikva to the surgery.  Michal adores her and Tikki adores Michal - and the call out charge is only a fraction more than a taxi to the surgery in town and then back home.  When Tikva was spayed Michal picked us up to take her to the surgery, I got a taxi home and Michal brought Tikva home later that afternoon, with all of three tiny staples, which she came to remove I think ten days later.

I know when Lexi and Pereg were spayed they had stitches, not staples, and I took their stitches out myself.  Ram had agreed to use stitches for Pereg as at that time I did not know how to remove staples.  But when Pereg was attacked by a stray dog and had to have staples in her shoulder, the then locum vet who came round to clean her shoulder and staple it, showed me how to remove staples with a tiny embroidery pair of scissors.  Michal came to remove Tikva's staples as she - Tikki - is very strong for her size and there is no way I could have coped myself.

Do I regret having brought Tikva home at only 3 weeks old?  I had no choice, did I.  

But I can not change my avatar or my signature, much as I love little Tikva.

Just so skinny and I am not used to a skinny dog, especially as Pereg was overweight due to her epilepsy and medication.

So great to hear how you are both going, sounds like the two of you are doing very well. It is funny how the seem to pick up the ways of the one before even without meeting them to you both from us all here.

Have you tried PixResizer from http://bluefive.pair.com/  Really easy to use and can handle single or bulk images

I use Picasa as my on-line storage area for my photographs and albums.

https://picasa.google.co.uk/

There are many others to choose from too.

I am not sure if this will work - rather odd perspective as I was above her and her legs are longer than they look - also the photo does not show how skinny she is, but here is Tikki Tikva just a few days short of her first birthday.

She's delightful, the angle of view may make her legs look short but, in reality, makes her look cute.
She's going to be well pampered, you can tell.

She definitely has Doxie legs, wonky-looking knees and turned out feet, and everyone says she is cute, so I guess she must be.  Pampered?  Well if she was a cuddle pup then maybe...!  Although I did go a bit overboard with toys for her, but she plays with them all so I feel justified in buying them for her.  Just keep me away from eBay and AliExpress!

Let me see if this works - photo taken at the same time.



From ~450gm at 3 weeks to 5.5kg at a few days short of one year old - I do not think I have done too badly looking after my little Tikki Tikva.

If this works, it shows the actual shape of Tikva - skinny little monkey!



[I am having major problems with photos - TinyPic no longer works with Windows 10 and PhotoBucket is not very happy - I must find a way of posting photographs from Picassa without it taking days to go all round the bush.]

You do realise that she is an ickle girl?  Smaller than the ginger tom feral cat that lives under the back of my neighbour's bungalow.  

She is very thin though but she is healthy and yes, those eyes...
