Dental Care

So Fraggle is having *most* of her remaining teeth out today. I'm trying to figure out all the possible ways I can try and keep the remaining ones okay. What's your favorite brush? Toothpaste? Are any of the water additives worth it? Help me save the 8 teeth (including the 4 canines) she's going to ...

Many wishes for a good surgery and the best possible answer for the wonky leg. I hope it's just a muscle issue that can be addressed with rehab and some more time.

Re: Living Near People - OMG!

Yikes. The other side of my street has 3 houses in a row with generally loose chi's. Fortunately my dogs like all of them, as we are ambushed regularly by them. Then I have to stand and wait for the owners to come out of the house and get them before I can cross the busy street back to my place. Dow...

Kirby: Get a solid recall and drop command (including him listening to his kid for them). Get a decent loose leash walk and stop freaking out at large black dogs and men with beards (though, he can keep up his habit of dancing at cute beardless guys sitting on benches outside the bottle shop until t...

Sensitive trachea and play

Fraggle has always had a kind of sensitive trachea--she needs a low harness or she coughs, for example. It's all been mild and manageable but now Kirby likes to pin her on her back (Fraggle is willing at this point and rolls over to encourage him to chew on her) and then he chews on her throat. This...

Paper-product obsessed dog

So, Kirby, despite being 3-4 years old, thinks he's basically a puppy and needs to constantly be chewing. He eats boxes, books, papers, tissues, the child's paper planes, napkins, toilet paper (yes, I caught him pulling it off the roll!). He has 20 toys, but doesn't really want to *chew* on anything...

Re: Henry doesn't want to pee

Kirby only pees and poops if he's eaten breakfast, so he is 100% with Henry on this one. I don't know why, he just came to me that way. He will also hold it all forever if he has to, eat his breakfast, and then ask to go out again. I decided it made sense for me to just feed him before we go out. He...

Re: What season is your dog's least favorite?

Fraggle is not a fan of winter. When we actually get snow, it balls up like crazy on her fluffy legs and I have to pull snowclumps off of her. She would rather bask in the hot sun until I make her come in before she gets heatstroke. Kirby....well, he came from Los Angeles so this will be his first w...

Re: Fire Ant Bites

Oh, good call to just dose him with benadryl. I always forget about benadryl as an ongoing option.

It's cold and misting here (we have not seen the sun in 12 days now) and he felt much better yesterday after a long walk in the cold mist. I'm guessing that felt really nice on the owies.

So so many "all done no more gimpy vibes" for Z. I feel so bad for him and for you.

So, late last night Kirby did a thorough investigation of a fireant hill (I couldn't see what he was doing in the dark) with his fluffy little face. Many stings, I pulled 20+ ants out of his face fluff, plus he rubbed many off onto the grass before I realized what was happening. The facial swelling ...

Re: Getting dogs used to noises

That makes me feel a lot better. I was like.... Seriously? The first time he heard or he barked and growled at the location for 3 minutes. Sigh. He's not that barky but way more alert than Fraggle who notices nothing aside from a door knock.
