Redhead is a fruit and veggie lover as well. Bananas (including the peel), apples, peas, beans, carrots, muskmelon, tomatoes, he likes them all, except it took him a while to get into orange slices.

But now he likes them.

More likely a load of hooey than not. A dog's build is mostly determined by its genetics. You can work out a chihuahua all you want, and it will still be built like a chihuahua. Same goes for a pit. Feed your dog a good-quality kibble (there are hundreds of threads on this) and provide plenty of exe...

So far, Redhead is pooping normally, although poking through his poop, I have seen no sign of it, either. Affect seems typical Redhead, playful and mentally defective. That and a physical exam seems to indicate that either he didn't eat the knobbie, or he did and broke it up into relatively small ch...

Since there is no edit here, I'll add that Redhead seems to have forgotten his induced vomitting and is now engrossed in playing Intrepid Housefly Hunter.

Dog might have swallowed something last night

A round plastic knob, about 2 - 2.5 cm diameter. I gave Redhead peroxide as soon as I noticed the knob missing, he didn't puke it back up. No surprise. The vet says that if Redhead did swallow the knob, it's small enough for him to pass. True? Redhead is a good-sized dog, no pocket-pit here but no f...

After the dog has learned to fetch reliably, get thee a solid rubber ball the size of a baseball and a baseball bat.

A few sprints chasing after line drives and fly balls should provide a dog with much exercise, verily.

Take your pup to the vet and make sure he doesn't have worms. Then Feed a good-quality kibble in appropriate portions. He'll fill out to whatever size and proportions his genetics have programmed him to.

Incidentally, no food or supplements will make your dog wider or give him a bigger head.

Redhead anywhere from 2 times a day (rare) to more than four.

Walks can range from just long enough for Redhead to do his duty, to a brisk trot around the block, to a bit of play in a schoolyard, to a three-and-a-half hour marathon.

Anyone know of a home-made pad strengthener? I live in Ukraine, where most boutique dog supplies are unobtainium, and those that can be found cost like sin.

I don't see the problem with feeding horsemeat; it wasn't that long ago and horse was what you fed a dog.

Redhead likes all fruits except oranges. He has tried to enjoy the taste of oranges, but can't quite seem to be able to do it.

I am yet to find a vegetable that Redhead doesn't love, unless you count garlic as a "vegetable" and he does not get onions.

Like the idiot I am, I bought an elevated dish for His Majesty the Redheaded Puppy. He takes extra care to remove the food from his special elevated dish and place it on the floor where it can be devoured properly, as befits a canine of royal carriage.

Somewhat on-topic, how old should a dog be before you take them jogging with you? Redhead is about 11 months old, but I don't want to damage his joints by taking him too young. In my opinion he should be old enough to go jogging now but I would start out of short trips. This way you know he is read...
