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: Renton, WA

On second reading, I'm not sure I understand the legislation proposed. I thought I read the ban would be on dangerous dogs based on bite history, not breed. I dont have a problem with that personally. I am sorry if I am slow today, or should I say slower than usual. I'm on antihistamines for a dread...

Re: Rough play-Bad Idea?

No its not a punishment at all. It's a little mister bottle and she jumps around trying to bite it or not let me get her with it. But I know she finds it fun because she play bows,mini zoomies and comes back for more. It's game of "can you get me before I get you". It gets rowdy when I ta...

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...

Re: Rough play-Bad Idea?

Lately when I play with my dog sometimes I like to get her really razzed up. But I was wondering last night if it was a good idea. Normally when we play I don’t let her take a toy from me or do anything but patiently wait for my instruction. But I’ve started random mini play sessions where I’ll gua...

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