My dog sleeps with me and the cat, unless a dog-friendly friend or relative is visiting, in which case he sleeps with the guest. Last time my mom came out to the airport I inadvertently caused heads to turn at the baggage claim by saying audibly "I know Crosbie's really looking forward to sleep...

I'm so sorry. I remember reading Slim's story from the day he was rescued, and I remember how pleased I was to read that you'd adopted him. My heart goes out to you.

Take good care of yourself and of Miss Xena.

NM sold the name to another company and the old NM is now Petastic.
Ah, that explains it! Thanks! (I thought my cat's urine composition must have changed in some mysterious way.)

Yup, that's exactly what happened to us. Crosbie now rings the doorbell whenever he wants any kind of attention.

When I was a kid, the local historical museum (that's the Chateau de Ramezay for you Montrealers) had a restored kitchen featuring a dog-powered spit for roasting meat, complete with a little Steiff terrier looking totally ready to run.

Crosbie's a bit big for that, but I'm contemplating a scooter.

This is only tangentially related to the topic, but does anyone know where to find a list (with diagrams) of the standard AKC hand signals? After several web searches I still haven't located them.

Has anyone tried one of those gel-based cooling mats ("Canine Cooler" and others) I've seen advertised? They're a little pricey, but if they work, they sound like they'd be a great option for dogs who don't have air conditioning at home.

So far, cautiously, Crosbie's managed fine with tiny amounts of kibble in a buster cube when I leave for work (California Natural or Wellness), but also small meals consisting of "real food" -- canned salmon or mackerel, yogurt, veggies, the occasional turkey neck or wing. He's a small dog, just und...

That's not the problem at my place! My dog Crosbie's constant regret is that my cat Leo doesn't like him. Crosbie tries every day to sniff Leo's butt and to coax him to play, but no dice. Leo tolerates Crosbie as long as he doesn't look him in the eye. But if Crosbie presumes too much -- or just if ...

I don't think it's just pit bulls. I remember our schnauzery mix doing it when I was a kid -- we called it "being on a tear". (That's as in tearing up the house, not as in tears of a clown.) I've also seen cats do it, usually around midnight for some reason.

Some airlines have restrictions on shorter-muzzled dogs. In these cases, it's not breed prejudice; they're worried about the dogs overheating, and don't want to bear the liability.

Let me try to clarify a few of Moto's points. As I understand it, albino dogs are no more likely to be deaf than other dogs. They have plenty of melanocytes (cells that produce pigment and that also have a role in the development of several important structures, including the ear); they just lack an...

That hard-headed pitbull

For the last few days (since Crosbie arrived) I've been singing "She Got the Katy" with modified lyrics:

Crazy 'bout that hard-headed pitbull, that hard-headed pitbull of mine!
