Re: I have to be the unluckiest pet owner/human being

Duke won't stop trying to lick my phone... think the kisses are intended for you and Blu! Hang tough, family. Sounds like good news from the vet, so stay optimistic and take extra special care of your pooch. If there were swelling again you'd have the right to be pessimistic... but it sounds like Bl...

Re: I have to be the unluckiest pet owner/human being

Sending so many hugs and warm thoughts your way. I feel your pain... I live alone, recent college grad, have a slightly reactive dog so spend a decent amount of money on classes etc... and got laid off in 2012 as well. It was definitely the hardest months of my life, but I am slowly recovering and h...

Re: Puppy and flirt pole!!!

I can attest to this from personal experience. My parents cat plays with the laser pointer and it was laying out so we saw if Duke would play. While it was hilarious and Duke was having a blast, after putting it away he would not stop looking for it. At this point it was a rule not to use it again, ...

Re: Vomitting and loose stool ?

When I first got Duke I had similar issues. He was a little underweight and was not interested in his food at all. He would eat it out of my hand but otherwise he had no interest in the bowl and even if I could coax him to start eating out of the bowl, I would have to stay in the room or else he wou...

Re: Hello from Minnesota, don't worry, it's not too cold yet

Welcome!! Your story sounds similar to my story... I foster dogs for a local shelter, and was a "foster failure" with one of these dogs, Duke, who is now my best friend. Can't imagine life without him! He, too, was a "special needs" dog because of his behavior issues (many of whi...

Re: Duke and Duke's Mama

Emma's Mama... seriously thank you so much! It is just wonderful to know that someone understands. How is Emma doing now? If you can think of any serious no-no's you did with Emma that I can avoid, or anything that especially worked well, I would love to learn from your experience. I have purchased ...

Re: Duke and Duke's Mama

Thank you for pointing out the possible transfer of dog aggression to leash/barrier aggression... that makes a lot of sense. If I were ever to do anything like that, the point is to avoid any signs of discomfort/aggression, directed towards anything... so I agree it would definitely have to be done ...

Re: Duke and Duke's Mama

Hey Jamie! Can you be more specific about what you guys did wrong when you tried it? I have researched it everywhere and I feel if done correctly it can be done (in fact it SHOULD be done) with no trauma to the dog. In my case, the dog park is surrounded by acres of wooded areas and some cleared are...

Re: Duke and Duke's Mama

Thank you so much for the warm welcomes already! I will go in to much more detail about his behavior issues but figured it would be a better conversation for the Behavior section, once I have posting rights :) I am sure many have faced similar challenges... I think being fearful of new situations an...
