Re: Dottie Monster

Very sorry to hear. The pain of losing them turned out to be a lot worse than I could ever imagine...

Re: Fairwell my friend

Thank you, everyone. This was probably the easiest possible way for my boy to leave us - he was his usual happy and mellow self all the way up until last night, thrilled to see me as always when i got back from work, we took a short walk before settling in..... I am sure it's a good thing we were co...

Fairwell my friend

My boy Ari suddenly died this morning, 8 y.o. There were no indications until very later last night. It turned out cancer which didn’t bother him until is spread to his heart, and when that happened he was gone within several hours. The shock and pain and sense of loss I can’t even describe. For eve...

Re: Lab puppy sometimes jumps/nips while playing outside

For what it’s worth, IMHO any reaction to jumping/nipping is rewarding for the puppy, even if meant to be discouraging... not only she got to jump and nip, she also got her human huffing and puffing :-) So, no reaction was the way to go for us, when outside. Long sleeves help. I would just have to f...

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

Ari the 7.5 y.o. RR lost a bit of weight lately, and regained some of his good looks... muscles are visible again, which coupled with his size, low energy during the summer, and aloof demeanor (just slowly walking by people without even looking at them) turns heads again. “Wow, did you see that dog?...

Re: Let's talk sighthounds

“They are quiet, sweet, affectionate with their owners and enjoy being petted by others but they're not demonstrative. They won't jump over anyone or fawn over strangers, simply stand calmly beside them inviting pats. They're very clean and quiet in the house and although they love to zoom outside ...

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

Ari is not necessarily lazy, but definitely adverse to even minor inconveniences... like wet, or cold, or snow, or pretty much anything, so in order to get a good walk we have to drive somewhere (to the nature park, or to downtown), then he is full or energy, moves fast. But walks around the neighbo...

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

Ari The RR of weighed in at 115 lbs at the vet a couple of weeks ago, definitely gained weight during winter... the vet was not thrilled (to put it mildly), so the boy is on a diet again. At least supposed to be on a diet. My mother, the great self-discovered animal advocate, believes that dogs suff...

Re: Bleeding ears when stressed

Vet said possibly vasculitus, but can stress (perhaps elevated heart rate?) have an impact?

Bleeding ears when stressed

Need help on behalf of a friend, with a young male ridgeback. When he is under stress - BOTH his ears begin to bleed. Not just one - both, simmetrically. At the tips, as in the pictures, and also at the base. For example - at the vet, or at the groomer, both of whom he finds stressful. Another examp...
