Re: What's going on with Aedin's ears?! Sensitive? Infection

All of the dogs I've ever had LOVE having their ears rubbed, especially when they have ear infections. I assume they enjoy it because the rubbing is like scratching to them. If my dogs were yelping when I touched their ears, and refusing to let the vet look in them, they'd be getting some sort of se...

Re: One Room of the House

If it's a room that you don't spend much time in, the dog may just not realize that it's part of the "den/home". I don't think a dog really understands the concept of a house. I mean, if they spend time in the living room and are consistently trained, they realize that's their 'den/home' a...

I don't have hardwood, but these claim to work to protect them. http://www.softclaws.com/soft_claws_dogs/home.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; hahahahaha. I checked it out because Amber and Andre like to slide across our floor. The "jumbo" size is 70 pounds and up. Sorr...

Re: My dogs are fighting...

hey, everybody. this isn't about personality conflicts and battles – it's about a member who's trying to find a way to work with her dogs. she needs help and information, and using her thread as a place to vent at one another is selfish and, well, not very helpful. if people want to have a thread a...

lol ....sleep, she sleeps???


I dunno. Does she have a period where she's slightly calmer? I guess that would be sleep. :)

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Well, last night Amber decided it was wrestle-mania night. She and Andre managed to rearrange the furniture by body-slamming one another into the couch and loveseat. After they pulled the cushions off the couch, Amber wriggled under them and nipped at Andre as he circled her mountain of cushions. I ...

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

We're just going to stick to the aspirin for the two week period and then we meet and talk to the vet again to discuss the results and figure out what we're going to do long-term. Once we're done with the 2 weeks, I'll probably be adding glucosomine supplements of some sort, so thank you for the rec...

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Oh. I know she's not super-active. Or at least she never has been in her time with us. Her tail is wagging more today. And it's wagging harder and faster, so I think we might be on to something. We'll see.

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Thanks for the well-wishes. She's not curled into such a tight ball on the couch today but still isn't what I'd call 'overly active', it is a bit of an improvement though.

Jacki, I doubt that Amber is depressed due to lack of collars. :-P roflmao

Re: Advice? Or is this normal?

Well, Amber was a bit perkier than normal yesterday evening. She even stretched out on the couch instead of curling in a tiny ball in the corner of the couch. And, *gulp* she laid on the floor for a few hours like a DOG!! :wow This morning she was out of bed by 8:30. She didn't do anything other tha...

Re: nuh-uh, no-no, etc

In this case, "B" is Blake (a 10 month old human) and while he probably doesn't understand what I'm saying yet, we still talk to him like he does. Ha! Oops ;) No worries, we often forget he's human and refer to him as our bald, tailless puppy. So would you recommend using their name to st...

Re: nuh-uh, no-no, etc

Didn't make a big fuss, just explained in a normal voice to B why I was moving him away. Well, the trouble with this is the simple fact that dogs don't speak english. "No" (or any derivities of it) is a very complex term that dogs don't understand. It's not instructive, it doesn't give th...

nuh-uh, no-no, etc

So, I've had this problem with Amber ever since we got Andre and I'm curious if anyone else has the same issue. Whenever we say "nuh-uh" or "no-no" to Andre (and now to the 10 month old human who is getting in everything), Amber stops what she's doing like we're correcting her. J...
