Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

heres a pic. its a bit blurry but photographing a moving terrier is about as easy as it sounds. notice the pinkness of the surrounding skin. thats new, i think its irritated cause he keeps licking it. but its also not usually bare like that either.

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

google images tells me probably not. it looks like either a mostly healed sore or perhaps a bite of some kind? its got a fairly round regular border and isnt red or inflamed at all. its just a round... crater?

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Bax has a hole in his leg O.o not sure how it happened or when he got it but he has a very shallow obvious hole in his leg that he keeps licking. hes cleared a considerable patch of fur around the area, almost his entire upper leg. no blood, no pinkness just a chunk cut out of his leg with a wide ba...

Re: Helping choose

Lovely response to my post LoQ, those are my thoughts exactly. :D Dittoing Judy on lurchers and greyhounds. or.... reiterating my previous point. get an adult/senior. bax was a bucket of energy a year or two ago but now he mostly just sleeps on my futon. we walk slowly in a stop and sniff for about ...

Re: Helping choose

unpopular opinon for this thread but here we go -

go to a shelter and find a dog that has exactly the right temperament you want instead of getting a puppy and rolling the dice that it wont be a neurotic nutcase regardless of breed?

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Mother’s day and asparagus falls to the floor. Both dogs went for it. 13 lb ratty and 85lb ridgeback. Bax ripped her nose wide open. She backed off bleeding and thankfully her owner didn’t object. Both dogs are back to all love and snuggles. Sigh. Edit. But. I have a five year old and three old huma...
