    Too cute!! Is that a onesie that the little guy has on?? Was he sick or did you just feel like having a house goat?

    Yea, he was sick. :( The vet did blood work--fecal, nothing out of the ordinary. He was just so thin and had no energy. I was worried. Vet wanted him in the house to closly moniter intake. Once he was away from the other 2, he gained 4 # in a week. We had him on Nutra Drench, B Complex, Probios, Meat Maker Minerals.
    Yes, a diaper and a onsie is a MUCH NEEDED outfit when you have a buckling in the house. :hair:

    Lol so far I've only had does in the house. Still no fun to try and keep a diaper on. But it looks like he is cool with it. :wink:

    The onesie is the answer! It holds the diaper in place. Doelings are easier, bucklings you need to make sure that Mr. Winky is fully covered.

    That is too cute! And the onesie is a great idea. :thumbup: But you didn't tell him what the onesie said on the back did you? "Little Miss Fire Cracker" You wouldn't want to hurt his future manly complex. :roll:

    cute


    you can just get those wraps they use for male dogs and you put a poise pad in there and they are good to go. Will have little berries around the house but those are easier to clean up.

    Worked well for me :shrug:

    I tried those Stacey, but they slid to his hips and Mr. Wink found his way beyond the poise pad and I had problems. I think they would work much better on the does.

    OK, Ashley & Allison, I think "Mr. Winky" is a very nice name for a very nasty but necessary part of his anatomy. :slapfloor:

    Candy - all wiggle worm aside -

    Have you contacted the breeder about this little guy? The reason that I ask is that I know that you haven't had him long and this has been going on for some time. I wonder if he has some type of genetic defect or maybe there are others that came down with this same thing and the breeder doesn't know that he is sick - but knows what is wrong to help you out....

    Just a thought.

    Oh I didn't know - :? It was just a thought to talk to the breeder. The only reason that I suggested is that when I had my Bordeaux mastiff - she died of GVD (bloated and then her stomach turned) at 2 years of age. She also had an eye issue that I took her to the specialist for. When I contacted the breeder, she mentioned that this has come up a few times in her breedings and so she retired that specific breeding pair.

    It was just a thought.
