OK cat found... alive but in bad shape in THEIR shed. Dude comes over screaming on the top of his lungs, "You're f%^king dogs got my cat, they won't be here tomorrow!" and goes on about how he's calling the cops, and that we shouldn't have pit bulls, he's gonna shoot our dogs if he ever s...

Does Doogie lick the cream off?


Of course. But I figure if it's safe for babies......and he's never had a problem other than a bit of mushy poo every once in a while.

I've used diaper rash cream in the past for Doogie. Or Bag Balm. It's weird, sometimes it's worse than others and I can't figure out why. *confused*

my partner and I joke about our dogs knowing the difference between outside squirrels and inside squirrels. Inside they are family members..outside they are fair game. I would feel horrible if they killed someones cat but my dogs are no more at fault than if it WERE a squirrel or a possum or a rat ...

Ya know, usually with dogs like that (Hank) I try to ignore the behavior. You're lucky because she's not dog aggressive and she's got Cowgirl to look up to and Cowgirl practically oozes confidence. I try not to feed into the timid behaviors by cooing and baby talking to them. Hank really liked Bufor...

Interesting. Thanks for the input! I can see the difficulty of placing a highly DA dog (and also the increased difficulty of fostering). I don't feel that a DA Pit Bull should be discriminated against, but I do see how it would be very easy to pass them over for a more dog friendly specimen. Do you...

Good point. There's a difference between dog reactive (acceptable and workable) and a dog so DA that he's not going to be happy unless he's killing another dog or animal.

Well, it's definitely easier to place a pit bull with low/no DA and they definitely take up less time in a foster spot.

For dogs that are allergic to fleas, it only takes one bite to set them off. The bite itches, then they scratch/bite and it and inflame it more. It's a vicious cycle that generally needs a steroid shot and/or antibiotics to help get it under control. It's good that you got rid of the fleas but you m...

Sounds like he's a little unsure since the change in routine. He's handling it well, though in my opinion. I second the suggestion of some training exercises.....especially ones that you know he excels at. He should settle into a new routine in no time!

I have six dogs in my house as well. A couple of them pit or pit mixes so it's a lot of work to responsibly manage them and make sure everyone gets lots of exercise and love. While I'm not preggers and don't have any children, I do work full time, run a dog rescue and also am a performer at night an...
