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

Hidey-ho everyone, Well it's been three weeks since Annie's passing. I thought I would never feel cheerful again, but we are adjusting. It's horrible to say, but we have noticed how much cleaner the house has stayed, without all the tumbleweeds of fur floating about. And... I am just beginning to re...

Re: RIP My Beloved Annie 6/6/03--3/16/17

Thank you all. We're having a rough time. We're going to grill some burgers because Annie always loved it when we grilled, and because I never did get to have that 13th birthday party for her last year, like I wanted to. I've been remembering all the fun adventures we had together (and those of you ...

RIP My Beloved Annie 6/6/03--3/16/17

For those of you who have been here a long time, and are familiar with my dogs, Annie and Dottie-- we had Annie put to sleep yesterday. I would like to say it was a peaceful passing, but it was not. :( Since we are 50 miles from the nearest veterinarian, and across state lines besides, he would/coul...

Re: Receiving a Long Term Guest And His Dog

"Pink Fluffies" :lol: Yes, that does tend to happen here, doesn't it? :lol: Thank you Nettle. I don't think there is time for my son's friend to send anything through the post, and unfortunately, I did not remember that idea until yesterday. :( As far as my questions four and five, I think that yes,...

Re: HELP!!! Cockapoo Puppy Bad Behaviour - Constant Barking!!!!

Hi. What is the usual arriving home from work/evening routine for the dog? How does the routine differ from you, versus your wife returning home?

Re: Chasing Cars, Tractors, Bicycles etc;

Hi! We just need a little more information... When they do this running up to other people/dogs, and chasing large vehicles, I take it they are off lead? And you say they have very good recall? Is that only under ordinary circumstances, or all the time? Do they recall if they are chasing something a...

Receiving a Long Term Guest And His Dog

Hi Everyone, First the low-down: Our son has an online friend with some dire circumstances, and needing help immediately. To make a long story short, friend's father has terminal brain cancer, has lost his mind, and is shoving all family out of his life, and his house. In other words, Son's Friend i...

Re: Dog Aggression Toward Elderly Dogs

Thank you, Nettle. I knew you had posted something like this before. What does everyone else think about pinning this where it's easy for others to find? We have always had to manage our girls very carefully, especially about meal times, but it is even more so now. Eating in a standing position has ...

Dog Aggression Toward Elderly Dogs

Hi All, So I've got a question: I seem to recall something having been stated, several years ago, on this forum, about how when a dog in the home becomes elderly, sick, infirm, etc., that the other dogs in the home may start to display aggression toward that dog. Is this correct, or is my memory pla...

Re: Dog Food Brands

Okay, to answer the question about cooking: cooking meat does change the chemistry/mineral balance, particularly phosporous to calcium ratio. Apparently, cooking makes the phosphorous ratio a bit high in relation to the calcium, and that can cause some kidney problems. So if you're going to cook, yo...

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

I know the use of straight up marijuana (THC and all) is completely illegal in the UK, as it is in all but a few of the United States. However, I've ordered some Hempseed oil (legal as a food source, from industrial hemp) online, and have been putting it on their food. I don't know if it actually co...

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

Well after a rather lengthy plateau, and thinking Dottie has made all the progress we can hope for, she is back in the game, and learning new things.... such as how to warm up to visitors coming over, and even how to get along with a two year old human! Since last spring, my bil and sil have been co...

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

Hi, long time no see. In June Annie turned 13 years old. It's been hard, having an elderly dog. :( Previously I posted about how she has cataracts in her eyes, and how she's been having difficulty getting up and down the porch steps (the only way in or out of the house). I mentioned how we bought he...

Oh Judy, you do have some of the most interesting stories! :lol: Well I just woke up from a dream about Victoria. She was in the area for a what do you call it-- lecture? And she happened to be taking a stroll through my neighborhood, and stopped by my house for a neighborly chat. Then she gave me t...
