It's definitely not uncommon for dogs to correct other dogs when they perceive their behavior as inappropriate. They don't care if they know them or their person - they try and take care of the situation. :)

*This is about older dogs, pups tend to sleep anywhere/everywhere :) You can tell if it's innocent or bossy/pushy behavior by making them move. If they are stand-offish/resistant (Especially if they hold their ground and growl) you know that it's not innocent, cuddly behavior. I don't mean that the...

seeing as my dogs are not off leash ever nor in contact with strange animals I didn't see it overly necessary to vaccinate them. The problem with that, is rabies is a virus that can come TO YOU. You don't have to go to it. So, it doesn't matter how responsible you are by keeping your dogs on leash....

They can't see orange either - I tested it with my dogs.
A bright orange carrot piece on very green grass - they couldn't find the carrot unless they watched me throw it and saw exactly where it landed. The grass was really short and the carrot was on top, not hidden.

It's a bad idea to wait for him to throw up - they don't always do that. If the poisoned object moves into their intestines, they aren't going to throw it up and they still absorb the toxin through their digestive track.

Don't wait it out, go to the vet right away next time.

It's not so much about training while she's at that level - it's more about preventing her from reaching that level. Since she's the kind of dog that takes it upon herself to attack what she perceives as a threat - instead of looking to you, - It's probably not a good idea to have social play dates ...

It's never a real good idea to play rough with multiple dogs around - especially when they don't live together and don't know the routine. You should have had enough control over your dog to tell her to stop and she should have listened. She shouldn't have been that amped up. Any time you have your ...

I usually just chop up whatever extra veggies I have in the crisper. Yesterday it was fresh green beans. :) Sometimes I use plain dog food, Other times it can be almonds, carrots, apples ect. They love it when I do a trail mix type. When I do that, I add in a few little chocolate candies(chocolate m...

I don't know, but a sprout is just a seedling of a plant.
I'm sure poison oak sprouts wouldn't be too good for anyone. :))

If it's just longer naps and regular energy the rest of the time - that's different than drained energy. You'd definitely be able to tell. :)

It might just be a case of the runs, but you'll want to keep your eyes open, just in case it's a bug or something.

Tired and diarrhea are symptoms of parvo - UTD on shots doesn't prevent parvo - so he might have it.

Giardia(sp?) also causes diarrhea.

I would take him to the vet. If it is parvo, you are wasting precious hours.

She says that she adopted the dog, "Kanga" - who was very sick. Kanga only weighed 45 pounds, had kennel cough, hung her head low, was depressed, was losing chunks of hair, and was only skin and bone. Over the next two months, Ani converted Kanga from canned vegetarian dog food to a 100% ...

Depends on what kind of sprouts they are. :)
The sprouts they use in Chinese food are bean sprouts - they should be fine.
