http://www.bulliesinneed.ca and http://www.furkidsrescue.ca are two good ontario rescues. You'd have to email furkids because they don't always post the pit bulls on the main page. I know they had a breeding pair and a bunch of puppies (the female is with bullies in need) just a few weeks ago, but I...

At the next stage of processing bull penises are stretched, twisted or braided, dried and then may be smoked for flavor. I really, really hope there is a machine that does that. Otherwise, someone has a much worse job than I do. OMG... I very nearly spit my tea out on my monitor roflmao roflmao rof...

I can't see it being a problem... nighttime will be the worst... are you tenting or do you have a cabin to stay in? Keep him inside the tent/cabin with you and if he's freezing he'll probably end up cuddled up. If you have coats and fleecy stuff for the dog to wear he should be fine with 5-10 degree...

Maybe she's had debarking surgery? I didn't think vets even did that anymore. (I know it's illegal in my province). As far as I know it means she would have had surgery to remove part of her vocal cords to stop barking (or at least make it quiet, they are supposed to sound like a whispered bark). ht...

Re: Good evening from Tanker

Should we put him in it when we sleep? Or let him sleep with us for a few days. As someone who now has 2 80-pound dogs who like to sleep with me and my husband because we brought them home and were 'just going to let them sleep with us a few days', I vote for putting him in the crate to sleep.

I recommend anything that has Hyaluronic Acid in it... I gave my old horse a joint supplement that was glucosamine, MSM, Chondroitin... but he didn't really improve until I tried the one with Hyaluronic acid. I told that to my mom (who has bad hips) and she found a human supplement with it, and it w...

You can buy bully sticks in bulk on ebay... the thick 12 inch ones work out to about $1.50-$2 each. I usually just give my dogs the 6 inch ones as a rare treat because I still find them expensive, but the dogs love them.

Stuffing a kong with different treats is a great idea too. and cheap!

If it was my pup, I would still se a regular vet and ask for bloodwork. SOMETHING obviously happened to the pup. Sounds like poison/something ingested and if it was there could be organ damage. X2...

Marley acted like that when he ate some ibuprofen... it's toxic for dogs and he was being poisoned. He needed a trip to the vet, overnight stay and a few weeks of medication to help his tummy recover (it was just antacid... AFTER the vet treatment)

x6 for a trip to the vet.

Yep, we have a couple that are smaller too, but the bigger one works the best and makes the dogs run the farthest. If we're playing with BOTH Marley and Carrie it's easier to keep the longer one away from both the dogs.

the zinc clamps are definitely weakened/compromised by moisture but i have not had any issues with them bending when intact. i'm sure part of it is due to the fact that our larger dog is only 45lbs and we dont use the same lead every day. i have thrown a couple out that got pretty beat up/wet after...
