If what you have is a pup, just play with him for now until is 18 months old or so. A special exercise program runs the risk of damaging his developing bones.

And whoever suggested not breeding your dog gave you good advice. Neuter that dog, pronto!

Muay ripped apart a ziploc bag that we left in the car that originally had some dog treats in it. When we got home and took her out for a walk she proceeded to throw up whatever she ingested and kept on walking like it was nothing. I wouldn't worry too much, unless like others said he has trouble g...

Ate some bubble wrap!

Not even sure where to begin with this. Put Redhead in his cage, somehow he got hold of some plastic bubble wrap and shredded it. When I came back, there was a huge stinking pile of vomit along mixed with shredded bubble wrap in the cage with him. At least I think that was vomit. It actually smelled...

Lessee: Dried octopus or calamari, dried anchovies (all popular here as beer snacks. The trick is finding ones without added salt.) Frozen apple or pear chunks or slices of frozen carrot. Dry bread (go figure). Yogurt-covered cherries (yay!) Cheese! Redhead is crazy about bleu cheese, but that is a ...

How about eggplant? For whatever reason, Redhead seems to like it. Then again, he likes about everything. I give Redhead a chopped-up garlic clove once a week or so, and also a raw egg once a week. I figure wild dogs steal and eat eggs whenever they can. Are these bad ideas? Or should I just cook th...

My dog is a furry weirdo as well. Besides the usual balanced doggy diet of cigarette butts, paper, and plastic sacks that he tries to sneak, Redhead loves banana peels. Especially if they're frozen.

At least I let him have those.

Yes, we have no bananas

A new discovery - the Redhead's favorite thing in the world is currently....banana peel. Yes, gentle reader, you read correctly, Redhead will do about anything for a bit of banana peel. Is this harmful in any way? Since bananas are high in potassium, I wondered whether his K+/Na+ ratio or something ...

How old does a dog have to be before he can go jogging?

Although he is too young to go running with me, I occasionally let Redhead run with me half a block, and Redhead loves nothing more.

How about a chicken wing or two? Those have small bones, easy to chew.

How old is old enough for raw bones?

Hey, all. I've been feeding Redhead a mostly raw diet, with kefir, milk, raw eggshells, and veggie jucie to add calcium. I want to incorporate uncooked bones into Redhead's diet, but I do not know whether he is too young and what sort of bones are best. Any assistance or suggestions would be appreci...

For what it's worth, Redhead gets kefir, milk, and cheese, plus an occasional raw egg with shell. Soon he will start getting raw chicken pieces. Do dogs need fiber, and if so, how much? Because even if a dog cannot digest vegetable matter for nutrition, the veggies will still be a source of fiber.

If you are looking for anned pumpkin it is usually kept in the Baking Aisle at the store - one would think it would be with the canned veggies, but not so around here anyways. But the stores may be out down there due to Thanksgiving. You don't really see a baking aisle here in Ukraine, even in the ...
