3:16 am - Chasegiving:This holiday, donate from someone else's pocket

Have you heard of the Chase Community Giving campaign? Chase is giving away $5 million to the most popular charities. They are giving one charity $1 million grants and 5 charities will receive $100,000 each.

All you have to do is become a fan of their Facebook fanpage and vote for your favorite charity to win. You can only vote once per charity per round (there are two rounds). You get 20 votes to distribute at your own discretion.

I voted for Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue, which is my all-time favorite charity as that is from where I adopted Boscoe (see icon to the post and my LJ header for pictures). CCDR is a wonderful 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that saves hundreds of dachshund and dachshund mixes every year.

If you have a Facebook account, please, please, PLEASE vote in Chasegiving! It doesn't cost you a thing, but can give the charity of your choice much needed funds at the most trying of economic times.

Voting for round 1 ends on December 11 - vote soon!

If you are not sure which charities deserve your vote, please consider voting for the two I listed above.

Have a favorite charity you'd like me to vote for? Comment with suggestions over at my on my LJ.

current mood: hopeful

My short haired dachshund Poppy has really obvious baldness (it is now on her tail as well as legs, stomach, chest and head) I mentioned it to the vet before and he said that if there is no redness or bad skin then chances are its nothing he can cure just hereditary baldness.
I was hoping anyone could offer any advice on maybe any vitamins/bath oils/food changes that might benefit her and help her to grow the hair back?

I am taking her to the vet about it when I get her annual vaccinations done (in a months time) but I want to try foods/vitamins first otherwise the vet will charge a lot for tests that might come out inconclusive

Also my long-hair has not got any hair loss problems so I'm stumped if they BOTH had it then at least I could suspect something but as its just her it makes it even more weird!

11:48 am - Hello

Hi, my name is Jade and I live with my hubby and our Doxie cross, Jackson in SE London. I hope it is ok to join as my Doxie is not pure bred but he has all the great doxie characteristics (and the bad ones too!). He's 8 months old now and is a very sociable young pup so I look forward to bringing him to some meet ups when they next occur.

I've noticed when my longhair (harry 2) and my shorthair (poppy 3) play she tends to nibble at his *ahem* willy *ahem*

they are both snipped so theres nothing rude but I was wondering what peoples take on that was.. is it to do with her rememebring when she fed on her mother or something else???

Also Sometimes when they are playing Poppy is on the sofa and nibbling Harry who is on the floor and he is trying to get her to play he backs up and she nibbles his back by his tail and he seems to like it...

Crazy weird dogs :s
