What a cutie :inlove: She looks perfect. It's Ok if her ribs show a little. If I can't see my dogs ribs at all they are overweight.

I'm not familiar with the brand. Looks good for the price though. http://www.petedge.com has good deals too. i would get one with one door for as little opportunity for escaping as possible. many of us here cannot use the wire crates as the dogs just bend them up and climb on out. The one I got off ...

What kind are they? I bought Herm Sprenger prongs. I couldn't find the clasp type anywhere anyway. Daisy has a white neck and Doc is all white. I have never had any tarnishing from them.

You'd want larger pieces of bone to be surrounded as possible when being passed so I would just go with the regular kibble. Pumpkin may just make the runs worse at this point, use something with some substance. I wonder if anyone I know knows how about the disturbing amount of time in a given month ...

Daisy is still like this at over 2 years. She just isn't a very food motivated dog so if she isn't into the food she will literally eat once every two or three days just to stay alive. I had to try a couple of different things and spent alot at the vet looking for problems only to realize that she i...

I'd say they are associated. Bones give lots of dogs the runs. If it's going to be passed it will probably be pretty soon, maybe 2 days tops. Is she still eating, if so a little over feeding may help things along.

Doc is perfect in the car, he curls up and sacks out right away in the front seat. Daisy is a dork, she stands up in the front seat and leans all the way forward like she's in a Superman stance and rests her head on the dash...and stays like that, or curls up in my lap on long trips and sleeps on th...

I think i'm just going to do it. he doesn't free feed, and he does go on walks with me every day. The problem seems to be that despite the many ingredients in Gravy Train, meat isn't one of them. He's on a straight carb diet it seems. Poor boy. :sad: He's a bouncy little bugger for having a grey bea...

I'd turn the other way man. If you are willing to have a pup shipped to you, there are far better places where you won't have these issues. A life of demodex may be a sad and expensive headache that neither of you want to go through. The breeder should be well aware of this possibility and have no p...

Thanks Pat, sadly enough the Pro Plan and Diamond look far better than what he is eating.

Well Chris, that's the thing. i have to figure out something that she will continue when she gets back. Tempting as it is, I'm just not knocking another 80-100 bucks on a month out of my budget for her dogs food. I know how I would whip him into shape if he were mine, but he is not. I just occured t...

I don't usually eat a meal with Daisy present without sharing. she's so good and doesn't beg, just lays beside with the "oh please" look. I'm a sucker. lol Outside of that they get tons of things. surprisingly they have a taste for pretty much all fruits and veggies. If it's crunchy it's good to the...

operation chubbs

So, my roomate/landlady unfortunately had a death in the family and has headed back to her native Australia for 6 weeks uring which time her 10 year old beer keg on legs...I mean lab...has been left in my care. I would like to put the guy on a diet and try to get him back in shape while she is gone....
