Here are a few pictures of this poor earless girl. I'm still hoping against hope that we'll find her a safe place outside city limits soon . . . <img src=http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b4d700b3127cceb75e921be2e30000001610> <img src=http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/47b4d700b3127cceb75e92b2637...

I just got an email from the woman holding her, and the local dumbass kids in her hood already recognize the dog as belonging to "Tweety." I need to try to get her out of the neighborhood asap. I'm working on a foster or something. I wish I had a better option for this poor girl!

Can you help Halle? **HAPPY ENDING!**

Hey guys, Today I got a call from a friend . . . she found a pit bull and asked me what to do. I had her bring the dog to my office, so I could meet her, and it broke my heart. She's a sweet, petite pit bull, all black with a white blaze on her chest, white toes, and sensitive brown eyes. She had an...

Yeah, I don't like the extra excrement at all. More than likely, we'll be going back to Canidae Platinum. I just need to find a different retailer for it, as my last bag had mold in it. When I talked to the folks who run the store, they told me that the Platinum doesn't move very quickly so it sits ...

I just switched my old lady from Canidae Platinum to Wellness for a change of pace because she LOVED the Wellness samples I brought home from the store. She loves it but the jury's still out on whether or not I will like it. She sure does poop a lot more on Wellness.

I'm not really planning to modify her diet so much as I am looking for something to fill her up so she might be a little less freakish about wanting to eat all the time. This morning she ate breakfast (to which I have been adding water to make her feel more full . . . for dinner, I'll try the green ...

well sometimes dogs do just vomit . . . if vomiting is the only really serious symptom, i'll generally ride it out till morning unless i see other things going along with it. tremoring/trembling being one of the big ones that will make me run to the emergency vet since the trembling can be a sign of...

thyroid meds and RAGING appetite?

So Reba's been on her new medical regimen for about 2 weeks now--some Rimadyl (yes, I decided to take the risk and so far it's resulted in a total improvement with no side effects), once a week swim therapy, and thyroid replacement meds. Suddenly, she is absolutely and insanely ravenous. she's lost ...

i just realized where you guys live--i sorta know port jervis. via greenville and such. but anyway, reba once had an intestinal blockage and the symptoms were anxiety, lots of vomiting, generalized tremors, and eventually an inability to poop. it was not good. i'm a worrier about such things, so i s...

could be bowel obstruction. could be poinsoning, could be something else. if the dog is puking AND acting weird, probably wouldn't be a bad idea to either get the dog to an emergency vet or at the very least call one and ask about they symptoms . . . my emergency vet won't dispense advice over the p...

This is my first full year with using fresh garlic crushed up and put in the dogs' food, and so far (knock on wood) I have not seen any fleas around here. I hope it keeps up.

that's so awful, but it is sooo NOT your fault. poor shame. it's so hard to know what is going on with dogs, especially ones that are stoic and don't show their pain or problems.

you did right by her and i'm sure she appreciated the love and attention you gave her during her last week.
