Re: Golden Retriever and cancer

Honestly, every single breed has its pros and cons (health-wise and other wise). If a golden is what you want, just go for it and enjoy every minute you have with him/her whether that is five years or fifteen years. :) Let go of what could happen or go wrong, you have no control over that anyway, no...

Re: I'm done

I can hear and feel your frustration Shalista! I really sympathize with you. You have tried so hard with your little guy. My daughter has a slightly similar situation to yours with her rescue dog. After working with him lovingly and patiently for over three years (and not getting very far) she final...

Re: Advice needed one last time?

There are no absolutes, even with purebred dogs. But in general, goldens are still a good choice for your family situation. I have had a golden and my daughter has one right now. As puppies, they are as energetic and bouncy as any puppy. But as adults, if you get one from a great breeder, they tend ...

Re: Breed suggestions?

My first two thoughts were belgian Malinois and springer spaniel. Border collies have a great 'work ethic' and could probably get the job done pretty well too.

Where has everyone gone?

Where have all the regulars gone? For instance, I haven't seen a post from Nettle and/or Emmabeth in ages. Judy, it looks like you are pretty much holding down the fort single handedly these days. I hope everyone is okay.

Re: Almost 7 month old Pup

I am far and away not the expert here, but I think you might have a middle ground option with your dog. Instead of all or nothing when it comes to on leash greetings, take a middle ground stance. When you come upon a dog that would be appropriate for him to meet and greet, no matter how well it is g...

Re: Blind dog now also deaf...please help

My heart goes out to you and your sweet pup! Quality of life can be difficult to gauge in another being. First, let me say this, if you Google Halo for Dogs you will find a product that helps blind dogs navigate safely and securely. This might be of great help to her. But to address quality of life....

Re: Just a little rant about being 'over protective'

I find some of the same in my family too. All are dog lovers and care very well for them, but even they think training positively is just me "pampering" my dog. And it's been over six years now... <sigh>

Re: vomiting

How many times a day to you feed him? You don't have to add more food, just break up what you give him into smaller, more frequent meals. (Assuming the vomiting is from hunger/empty stomach.)

Re: To veg or not to veg

My dog never really liked eating veggies. I offered them, but she didn't usually eat them. Now I grind her raw food instead of giving her whole meaty bones and I put steamed veggies into the mix. She devours it! I like that she gets veggies in her meals. It simply cannot hurt. The key is to steam or...

Re: Two female pits - good idea?

Thanks for your answer Emmabeth! I thought her female was younger than this, but she just told me that she is 7 years old. She is apparently very sweet and nurturing to other dogs she meets. This family really knows pitties, how to raise them and how to keep them properly exercised and trained. I'm ...

Two female pits - good idea?

I have a 16 week old rescue pit bull that I am fostering. She is now ready for her new home. A very nice lady wants her who has raised and understands pit bulls. BUT... she already has one aged male and a young (but adult) female. While I personally have never had an issue having two females in the ...
