  1. Help! Someone please tell me they have a good solution for a sloppy drinker. I have a boot mat under our elevated bowl and it's about 1/6 of the area Violet gets water over, plus it's running underneath, and down from the cabinet side, causing mold on the molding (heh). I'm at a loss. I swear, she literally gets the biggest mouthful of water possible, turns her head, and opens her mouth to allow the water to tumble out. Does anyone have a magic solution? Or at least feel my pain?
  2. My dogs love our electric throws from Costco (and they're currently on sale). Otherwise I throw blankets down and they nest. But they're actual solution is to sleep in bed with me, lol. We used to do PJs, but Violet doesn't like them like my previous greyhounds did.
  3. Do you have to walk him (versus doing turnouts in the yard)? What equipment are you using to walk him? Have you tried training sessions (separate from walks) outside with him unmuzzled so it's easier to feed him? Consulted a trainer? Taken a group class? You haven't had him that long and there are a number of things you could try from both training and management perspectives. I don't think you're anywhere near exhausting options and determining it's not workable but there's also no shame in returning him if you don't feel it's the best match By the way, your nervousness i
  4. Well I randomly took a stab at hulling it today and it took a good bit of gentle work because the one side was well attached, but I got it out!! We're about to go for a mini hike so we'll see how she does. I'll still out boots on her since her paw pad is likely to be tender.
  5. I'm in the DC metro area and this doesn't sound right to me. I think others may be on the right track with the tick nest. I also second contacting the manufacturer. Possible something is wrong with the collar and they should at least know, or may replace it. Regardless, what you are describing is not normal for a dog going on walks in our area, with or without a collar imo.
  6. Thanks! Does it seem like the nail polish is working better than the duct tape? Or just easier to apply? I looked on the group briefly and saw a mention of one dogs corn likely being from nails that were too long. We did go through a phase recently where I wasn't on the ball with her nail trims. We're back on it, but hoping maybe that's all it was that prompted this and if we can get rid of it, it won't return. Probably wishful thinking.
  7. Thanks, I submitted my request to join and was approved this morning. I will try to dig in soon. By the way, I highly doubt the surgery is an option for us given her other issues and this is her first corn (at age 11) so we'll try other alternatives first.
  8. So Violet has been noticeably lame in her back left leg. Both I and her PT thought this was just a progression of her disc issue, but today I found this! It explains so much assuming it's a corn like I think. While this is my first corn in a grey, I used to read the posts about them. Is there anything new these days or should we just try duct tape? Doesn't seem ready for hulling. We do have a therapaw and I am working on getting a second one so she can hopefully walk normally, but she did fairly well with just the one today.
  9. I just got mine. Last year I got the notice of a massive rate hike and then mysteriously I got an email saying it had been a mistake and my premium wasn't changing. It was around the time they were having the issues in Washington so I thought maybe they were backtracking for fear of getting in trouble, but then others didn't get the same notice. I guess they're making up for lost time because now it's going from $108 to $148 a month, a 37% increase. I'm glad to see the lawsuit. I figured it was only a matter of time and I will happily jump on the class action lawsuit bandwagon.
  10. We've been using the Assisi Loop for a couple of years now and while I love them and do believe they really help Violet, they have their downsides. I've been coveting a Loop Lounge since they developed them, and when they were recently on sale for 15% off I bit the bullet and ordered one in the hopes that Healthy Paws would cover it since they've been covering the loops. It took some work on my part, including an appeal process, but after 2 months of the Lounge sitting unopened in its box, I got word that the claim was approved!! Since I pay 20% it's still costing me $260, but that's a sm
  11. Do you have a friend or family member nearby who could care for her while you continued to pay for her care? That would allow you to continue to see her and not take up a space in a home that might otherwise take an elderly grey in need. Also suggest you try another method of contact for your group (check their website for a general info email, phone number, or possible a FB page) and reach out that way. It's possibly the person you spoke with is no longer involved with the group, is on vacation, etc. I'm sorry you're in this situation. When I got to this point with my female greyho
  12. Ohhh, thanks for these suggestions! The K&H bed looks perfect other than being $$. Will check out the Orvis too.
  13. Canceled my trip for this reason. I would have been there by now. Instead I did yoga, replaced electrical outlets, and picked up my CSA in this horrific heat and humidity.
  14. Oh, I'm so sorry, I didn't see that.
  15. Thanks for the update. Glad it's helping Bea.
