Well, there's always obedience. That's not too high-stress, so it's not a total loss. Glad she's getting fixed up. :)

For my answer, my dogs never adjusted -- digestively speaking -- to the new Canidae, so I switched to Nature's Variety. Now feeding Taste of the Wild because it's a bit easier on the wallet and they seem to do well on it.

New Poll for Canidae Feeders, past and present

Back in July, I ran a poll to see how many planned to keep feeding Canidae after the ingredient change. Most seemed to be in favor of waiting to see what happened, or continuing to feed Canidae. I'm curious to see how things have changed in 3 months now that the new formula is on the store shelves. ...

Puppies can get an easy walk. Generally, when I feel my dogs are getting too heavy, I adjust how much I'm feeding. I've got a mature female here who only gets around 1-1.25 cups a day, because that's all she needs. My other dogs get 2-2.5 cups a day, and I vary that when I feel they're getting too h...

We got off the Canidae and onto Nature's Variety. But with where we had to buy it, we couldn't really afford to stick with it. So now we're on Taste of the Wild since the husband can get a discount on it. You've got some good picks on your short list. Good luck in your food quest. :)

I love your puppy. I have to say, though, I got a shiver seeing the pics of him with the handgun with the mag in. Hopefully you're like some other people here who are extremely gun-experienced and know exactly what they're doing. (BTW, my old man has a Ruger P345 -- I think that's the model -- and I...

Sex organs don't attack people. I've never heard of a dog strangling someone with it's nuts. By that logic, if we're going to surgically alter to fix the breed, why not pull fangs? Or better yet, surgically remove bad owners? I guess that'd be too much like right.

At the risk of offending anyone, I've got 16-month-olds and I don't know how anyone can determine a dog breedworthy at that age. I've got my hopes and dreams, but to say for certain that anybody WILL be bred is premature. If your convictions are strong and your reasons are sound, nobody will make yo...

Does owning an intact dog and encouraging spay/neuter make me a hypocrite? I don't think so... but this is also part of the reason I don't shove it down people's throats. I will still spay/neuter my pets as I see fit. I believe it's a Good Thing, and will continue to share that with folks. ^^What y...

But that's a pretty big "maybe" and the major reason that there are tons of unwanted dogs killed every day in shelters. Accidents happen. You're right. Accidents do happen. I could be walking down the street with my dogs, have an equipment failure, and my dog could run into someone's hors...

Here are the two articles that I like with regard to early spay/neuter. http://www.akcchf.org/pdfs/whitepapers/3-23-08DiscoveriesArticle.pdf http://www.caninesports.com/SpayNeuter.html You know, I sincerely believe we get brainwashed that all dogs should be spayed/neutered, and that we will not be h...

No vet appointment. Health clinics. Too expensive otherwise. I'll ask, though.

Too bad Leerburg's a prick. Oops, did I say that?

Anyway, I just had to whine. When I had Loki's hips screened, I didn't get a copy of her rads. When the pups get screened, maybe I'll just pack my camera and shoot a picture of them before we leave.

Oops. I didn't mean that last post to come off as anti-Canidae. It is anti-Canidae-for-my-dogs. But if your dog is doing good on it, stick with it. It's still a good food. Just didn't work in my house after the change.
