What do you feed your big dogs?
Hi yes, I am in MO. Thank you, I will check the Royal Canine Chihuahua at PetsMart tomorrow.

I don't feed Bella that, but I have heard many great things about it!! Good luck and I hope that everything works out well and you find her owner!!
It was so weird, I let our other 3 dogs out - 2 greyhounds and a German Shepherd puppy around 11:30pm last night. Temperature was in the 20's with about 2-3 inches of snow on the ground. I checked on the dogs a few minutes later to call them in and was surprised to see all 3 still up on the deck by the back door. They were trying to get at something (not to hurt it, just nosey
) and the poor little thing was barking her head off!
She was right on the ledge, and one step back and she would of fell off the deck on the stairway leading to the basement. My heart about stopped, and I was frantic trying to herd my 3 back in.
I have a big heavy cement statue of a laying down greyhound that I have sort of blocking the ledge and she was on the other side of the statue, right on the edge of the ledge. I ran inside and got a blanket, so I am running like a fool in the yard to the garden on the side of the deck, one sock on, the other foot barefoot, a wet head and in my pjs, and the little dog moved to the front of the back door to get away from me. (Can't say I blame her!
) I shoved the blanket in behind her, blocking her path back to the ledge and ran back around to the deck.
She willingly let me pick her up (I was afraid because I thought she would bite me and also I would scare her and she would accidentally fall off the deck on the the concrete stairs below), but she was the sweetest thing. I kept her wrapped in the blanket for awhile and she kept dozing off.
I am afraid to mix her with my 3 dogs and 2 cats for fear she will get hurt by roughness. I have her separated, but a couple times the puppy snuck in and the little chi barked up a storm!
I tried finding her owner all day - put an ad on Craigslist, an online ad in our newspaper, posted on PetFinder and posted in our neighborhood yahoo group. I called and made a report with the APA, and also called Animal Control and the Humane Society to make a found report, but they have to call you back. Still no calls from them, so haven't been able to list her there. This evening I drove her to our vet and she isn't microchipped.
I think tomorrow I will put a couple posters at the main intersections by our house. I want to be vague, because I don't want someone with shady intentions to claim her.
I do want to find her owner as I know I would be frantic with worry if one of my dogs/cats were lost. I hate to think someone purposely put her in our yard, especially the late hour and the weather. It's just amazing to me that she had to enter from the alley under a privacy fence gate and found her way up to the deck!
I found her on my birthday, maybe she is a gift, but I don't know it yet!
Yikes, this is a novel of a reply - so sorry!
