Re: Dog Park "Right of Way"

Thank you, that's pretty much my own consensus too. "If your dog is being a jerk, then YOUR dog needs to leave." I think we need to post that on all the gates, lol. One of the problems is that this park is used by a lot of retired folks who can't walk well, and apartment dwellers, and travelers who ...

Dog Park "Right of Way"

Hi all, The dog park in my town is very rudimentary: a fully enclosed parcel of lawn. It is not divided into sections, nor does it include an enclosed entrance/exit cell. A few altercations have come up with a person who's dog does not get along with certain dogs, and she stresses about it anytime a...

Caution About Essential Oil Diffusers

Hey all, My veterinarian is also a clinical Herbalist and Naturopath. Recently he did a webinar, and the subject of using essential oils in diffusers came up. He cautioned us all about using EO Diffusers around dogs, saying, "Dogs' bodies do something to essential oils that we don't do," and stated ...

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

Well that was a somewhat interesting discussion about prey drive! I have a brief video of Zoey in what I call "hunt drive," but I need to figure out how to share it here. Zoey does have an insane hunt drive. We have a standing play date with a specific group everyday at the dog park. Only, Zoey does...

To Board, or Take With?

My son is getting married on June 30. He is a nine hour drive away. I plan to start my trip a few days prior so I can help my son's fiance get things ready for the wedding. My son's apartment complex does not allow pets. Until last night, I had planned to take Zoey with me, but we would camp in one ...

Re: New rescue, and grieving Mr. Fundog's Death

We had a good day today, and yesterday too. It's amazing what a difference a crate makes! I'm so much more relaxed knowing Zoey has a safe space I can put her, where she can't get into trouble when I need to be out of sight of her. And it's nice to be able to praise her for being good! School will b...

Re: New rescue, and grieving Mr. Fundog's Death

Hi Everyone, Well I dont want to clog up the forum with a new topic every time I want to come here to talk (translstion, rant about my husband's dog), so I'll just keep the rants here. It's been a difficult week, well the whole month has been pretty hard. I'm really struggling with Zoey. She can't b...

New rescue, and grieving Mr. Fundog's Death

Hi Everyone. First, the happy news: On February 21 we welcomed a young (no more than a year old, if that) German Shorthaired Pointer female into our home after mourning Dottie's passing in December. She was found running loose in the city and taken to the animal shelter. She only spent ten days ther...

Dottie Monster

I haven't made an appearance here in two years, when my beloved Annie passed away. Some of you may still remember me. I log on today with immense pain and grief. My sweet Dottie Monster has joined Annie at Rainbow Bridge. Yesterday. It was very sudden. We think she must have had a vascular incident,...

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...

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,...
