Re: Good dog food for low budgets?

We feed our dogs Taste of the Wild now and it cost $25.00 for a 15 pound bag which is not too bad.

With three little dachshunds, a 15 lb bag of dog food last almost 2 months!

Re: Good thoughts/prayers for Winfred please.

Thank you guys for all the kind words. The house feels so quiet and empty without her. I miss her cuddling up next to me when she slept with me in my bed and having to tell her to stop licking her paws because her breath smelled liked road kill. lol She was a great little dog and she is greatly miss...

Re: My pit needs a friend..

Welcome to the PBF! He is only 4 months old and he is going though the teenage puppy stage right now. All puppies go though the stage where they want to test your limits. I do not think you should get another puppy but instead continue to work with your current puppy Noah. Getting another puppy will...

Re: Good thoughts/prayers for Winfred please.

We had to put Winfred to sleep.

The Vet said she was going into congestive heart failure and that she was slowly dying and that the best thing was to put her to sleep. She was in so much pain and did not feel good at all.

Rest in peace Winfred. We will miss you so much.

Re: Good thoughts/prayers for Winfred please.

Thank you. She has an appointment at 5:30 today.

Poor Winnie is feeling so bad today. So far today she has not eaten anything and all she wants do is sleep or sunbathe outside. She seems pretty lethargic today. :(

Good thoughts/prayers for Winfred please.

Winfred will be going to the vet this afternoon after my Mom gets off work so we can figure out what in the world is going on with the poor old lady. We adopted Winfred in January 2010 from a dachshund rescue and she is such a wonderful little girl. She is suppose to be around 11 years old but we th...

Re: Lethal White

I was wondering about "lethal whites" the other day. If someone breeds 2 merles together, will all the pups be lethal whites, or will some of the pups be normal, healthy pups? With double dapple dachshunds(which comes from breeding two dapples(merles) together), they can be born healthy d...

Re: Lethal White

Speaking of breeders putting to sleep blind/deaf dogs, My Grandparents had a blind and deaf white Rough Collie(he had very little merle on him) named Uno. His breeder was breeding for merle Rough Collies and she "culled" the puppies that had issues like Uno and sold the healthy puppies. Th...

Re: Lethal White

It also common in Dachshunds when they breed two dapples and they get what is called a "double dapple". Some are born blind, deaf, undeveloped eyes, seizures disorders etc. It is quite sad and is so easy to prevent. Just do not breed two dapples/merles together. Also, at one point some br...

Re: Why do you feed the food you do?

We feed our four dachshunds Diamond Naturals Lamb and Rice because honestly it is an inexpensive but decent food. Our dachshunds also have sensitive stomachs and it is the only food they have not had the runs on and horrible gas. We are thinking about switching them to Blue Buffalo soon though. We d...
