Hi everyone!!! [May. 12th, 2009|02:08 am]
Animal Breeders

[mood |calmcalm]

Well I just joined LJ and have been looking through some communities but this one really caught my attention. Im interested in breeding boxers, I own 2 already that are not breeding quality they are just wonderful family pets. Just trying to read as much as I can on the health testing and other breeding info. And also very interested in meeting people who breed boxers or other breeds of dogs, i do believe that you should breed to better the breed not to make it worse so that is one of my goals. I love the breed and I dont think I will ever own another breed, I been trying to find a good reputable breeder to purchase my first breeding female and maybe buying one this september. So anyone who has any advice, I will love to see your comments thanks.

On April 23rd 2009, The Natural Resources Committee of the U.S. Congress will hold a hearing on H.R. 669, a resolution that will in effect ban importation, interstate transport, and the private ownership of most birds, mammals, reptiles, and fish as pets. Should HR669 be adopted as written only the following nonnative animals
would be allowed:

-Cats (Felis catus)
-Cattle/Oxen (Bos taurus)
-Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus)
-Dogs (Canis lupus familiaris)
-Donkey/Asses (Equus asinus)
-Domesticated Geese (family Anatidae)
-Domesticated Ducks (Anas spp.)
-Goats (Capra aegagrus hircus)
-Common Goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus)
-Horses (Equus caballus)
-Llama (Lama glama)
-Mule/Hinny (Equus caballus x E. asinus)
-Domesticated Pigs/Hogs (Sus scrofa domestica)
-Domesticated Rabbit vatieties (Oryctolagus cuniculus)
-Sheep (Ovis aries)

Should this resolution be adopted into law as written it will have a devastating impact on every pet owner and business in the United States.

Action is needed TODAY to protect your rights to keep your pets! (So call/email/write your local congressrep voicing your opposition)

EDIT: I made quite the... Equus asinus of myself, believing what was circulating before studying the bill. That list is only the definition of domestic species. No list has been agreed upon yet. LINK FOR ACTUAL BILL

Hey ALL!

I've had a live journal that I never really kept up on since 2004. I've been getting more & more involved recently & loving the communities<3 I'm new to the whole community thing in general so I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself & my Ratties:)

My names Melissa...HI! Atm I have 3 female rats(Carmen, Pepper, & Ashley) & one male Ben<3 Who I akm currently looking for a friend for. Ashley is my newest addition to the family, I got her just 2 days ago. She is still in quarentine & I dont have pictures yet...my phone got wet so no phone or camera:*( I will be borrowing a friends camera for an even soon so I'll take new pics then.

I have also been a mouse breeder for a few years so I have some little mices<3 too. I will do my best to put up some pics soon. Thanks for your love of rodents<3<3<3

I thought there used to be an LJ community for breeders of small animals - does anyone know what it was called or if it still exists?
And to make my post more interesting, my current litter of mouse pups!

Well I've watched this community for a while but have never posted.

I recently leased a bitch for my CH stud dog ( AKC Parson Russell Terrier) to breed, this will be my first litter. And yes most of the puppies are spoken for already. But I was wondering if anyone had been through whelping and puppies before, especially a terrier breed.
Information on whelping boxes and anything that pertains to that would be awesome!

I went to the new petstore. And I came home with this guy...

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Someone had dumped off a really nice looking show bun on her, claiming that he was a pet. And they just didn't want him anymore. She was having trouble finding him a home because hes a six month old mini lop. So she asked me if I wanted him. I took him.

Now this is one of the good pet stores. They do sell bunnies. But from what I have seen they do fully research what they have, what breed it is, if its a mix, how big it will get, and thoroughly educate their customers about them on care and stuff. All the bunnies are sold by breed and quality. She deals with alot of 4hers that use their pet bunnies as show rabbits for the fair. So shes focusing on getting in better then just pet quality run of the mill bred rabbits(mixed breeds), and proper animal education. The whole store is very clean, and the cages and aquariums are not over crowded like most other stores. They also let their animals out so they(her kids) can socailize and play with them.

I was absolutely in love with this womans grey double maned lion head she had. She had him out and was grooming him while I was there.

i havent been around for a while so im going to do a lovely big update with lots of pics!!!!!

i made some snazzy new mouse cages. theyre alot lighter and easier to move than the glass tanks i had. they also cost alot less. i can make a few for the same price as one tank and lid. so, now im selling my old cages. anyone in Western Australia interested in some 30litre aquariums with mouse lids, at a good price, leave a comment :)

im actually going on a road trip tomorrow to deliver some young mice i bred as an order for someone (we take turns at driving to each others places, shes got a black blazed buck for me and a cute little girl too, ill post pics of them when i get them), and im selling them a few of my snazzy new cages too, since they think theyre cute LOL. ive been making them all lastnight and today and my fingers REALLY hurt. i plan to replace ALL my tanks and small cages (that means i need about 15 for myself) :)

on sunday i have a lady and her children coming over to look at my manxes and pick out a boy. (business is GOOD, but im resisting making more litters then i plan, since you never know when theres a slump.) last tuesday i dropped off an order of 6 females and 4 males to the local TAFE campus (to train vet nurses how to sex and care for small animals - i did the course already so i know theyll be loooked after andi have visiting rights YAY)), that put a huge dent in my stock for sale. so i have 3 little mice left :P

i had a litter from my lovely black self girl, who is the daughter of my wonderful Looshkin who some of you may remember (shes in my icon actually), but her cagemate ate all but one - who only survived because i found it and took out the cannibal. then blackie lost her milk and the little one never had a milk tummy.

by this time, the other girl had a litter of four - 3 pink eye and one dark eye... and shes looking after then really well. i found the little one cold and hungry and decided that it was going to die if i didnt foster, so i had to take the chance that the other mouse might eat it. but no, shes now looking after the little one better than i ever expected. the next day after i put it in there it had a big fat milk tummy and i was REALLY happy :) how ironic hey.

well, these babies are really big now, just a few days old, and ill put in a picture. theyre as big as the top two parts of my little finger!!

i put in Cheza, my blue girl, and my agouti girl (no names yet) in to mate with my blue marked texel boy Bluey. i am really looking forward to these litters. im going to use them to make blue agoutis, somehting we dont really get around here, ill likely be one of the only people with them. next its lilacs (as in b/b d/d mice not B/* D/* p/p). ahhh so much to write so little time. well, i better shut up and let you all get on with gushing at pictures :)

x posted to other mouse forums and my journal.

behind the cut are ... mousie pictures, pictures of the new tanks, and pics of the old tanks and carry cages for sale.Collapse )
