Re: Ari's drinking habits

Yes he is new to us. He is 11 or so weeks old. It is pale. I He drinks a gallon ( an 11 week old doggie gallon) and then he proceeds to spring a leak every couple of minutes. I don't know that restricting water like trying to give his smaller amounts in really regular intervals will help him or hin...

Re: Ari's drinking habits

The first night Ari came home he drank like he had never had a "glass of water." I figured he was dehydrated and it would pass. BUT he still gorges himself to what looks like a serious level of "bloat" everytime he sees a water bowl. At one point I thought maybe he was sort of d...

Re: WrinklyDog Gets FaceLift, EyeLift and a Chance at Adoption

I watched the Eukanuba Westminster Dog Show a couple of days ago. I don't like the look of all that extra skin. There was a champion Neopolitan Mastiff whose skin looked like Edgar's (Egger's) from the movie Men In Black after he was inhabited by an alien. They look like the morbidly obese after the...

Re: excercise when it is cold.

I haven't been able to take the puppies out as much to get them the excercise they need. Any suggestions on what else I could do? They both have hoodies on when I take them outside but we all wind up cold within a few minutes. YOU get a coat. The dogs will be fine if you keep moving. My dogs get MO...

I'm grateful their stomachs are made of steel. They eat such crap literally and figuratively.

Re: How many dogs???

I have used spring poles, flirt poles, treadmills, fetch up and down stairs, and furniture agility. We also have a pool at both houses which is beneficial for dogs who enjoy pools and those who don't. I have used a harness and cross leads across the pool or a pole lead and walk(swim) the dog around...

Re: How many dogs??? & fostering

Holy cow! I am amazed at how many of you have multiple pets! A lot of them sleeping with you to! As far as fostering, good idea but i'm totally afraid that i'll get attached and will never, ever be able to give the doggie back. I wonder how many people can actually do that? seems impossible to me. ...

Re: Tea Tree Oil

^^ Is the bay rum beneficial in any way? (I do love the smell of it too) I haven't heard of it having any health benefits, but it smells so good. I have a dog who rolls outside if you know what I mean. She gets sooooooo stinky. She smells wonderful after the baths she gets them every time she gets ...

Re: Tea Tree Oil

I don't know about that but it made my allergy girl EXTREMELY itchy. :( She scratched herself bloody after I tried a tea tree oil shampoo. I'm a groomer. Not only did products with Tea Tree oil make so many of the dogs I bathed get hives, I got hives too. I am 100% using only a hypo allergenic sham...
