We took Redhead to the vet today, he was excited because he saw a poodle and a kavkazka.

The surgeon says Redhead is healing very quickly, which makes the surgeon a bit nervous, as he may try to be active before he is fully healed.

Redhead had surgery Sunday

You may recall that Redhead's leg was hurting him. We were playing fetch outside and he twisted his leg trying to get a ferocious ball. I did not think too much of the limp that evening, but the next morning Redhead's right hind leg was clearly in pain. I took him to the doctor that day. After Xrays...

Something similar happened to Redhead last week. I hauled ass to the Vet for X-rays.

They could not tell whether the ligaments were torn or not, but at least my boy got pain meds. That and I learned how to shoot up a dog.

Redhead sways his hips only when walking, and usually it is when he is tired.

When Redhead was little he could go for up to two hours non-stop. I had to call off the game when he would begin staggering around like a drunken dog, still wanting to get that dratted toy.

Now he rarely wants more than 40 minutes.

I am not going to give you legal advice, but if you want to sue, you'd be better off in small claims court.

Does anyone make a treat or a treat recipe

that contains blue cheese? Redhead is seriously crazy for blue cheese. Give him a scrap of the stuff and he licks the floor for a solid minute or two after wards, making sure he has absorbed every last molecule of blue cheese goodness. I am not sure whether blue cheese contains some special secret v...

When Redhead first got chicken wings he thought they were toys.

After "killing" these ferocious new "toys" several times, Redhead decided that chicken-flavored toys tasted pretty good, once you got down to it. And come to think of it, he was kinda hungry.

Redhead has enjoyed all of the fruits and veggies I have given him except garlic (small quantities) and oranges.

He will drink orange juice, but it is not his favorite. He loves the "dog cocktail" consisting of veggie juice and raw natural kefir. Much tail-wagging ensues.

The stuff appears to be for geriatric, i.e. old dogs. Not sure what that means in regards to a dog that is not old yet.

Thanks for the info, everyone.

Redhead has been getting a lot of cheap turkey lately, so what would be the symptom of a pancreatic attack?

A question about turkey

Does the tryptophan in turkey makes dogs sleepy as it does humans?

I have gotten a line on cheap turkey parts, so Redhead has been getting a lot of turkey lately.

He is fine with that, but I am curious whether there might be any side-effects?

Oh, I don't have a pup (though I want one!) I was just wondering for future reference if it's possible to tell if a pup will have HD when it's quite young. If you are not planning to go the rescue route, HD has a strong genetic component. Therefore, a responsible breeder will screen for HD in both ...
