  1. I am pretty sure our precious ladybug toy that every greyhound we’ve ever had has loved was destroyed this evening by our new whippet puppy😭.  Rest In Peace sweet ladybug.   Her outer shell is still intact, however ever ounce of stuffing and the squeaker has been demolished.   We had several batmom toys I think.  A snake?  The ladybug for sure…..and something else .   Best toys ever! 

  2. May your Thanksgiving be warm, wonderful, and full of love. (Batman and Grammy making stuffing @ 2005.)
  3. Oh, Purina ONE lamb & rice tends to still be available, too.
  4. Might see if you can get Purina ONE more easily? They have a turkey & venison (the one with grain) that seems to be available many places, also a Sensitive that is salmon based / flavored too. The ingredients are a little different from Pro Plan and seem to work better for some dogs.
  5. Really useful, especially for helping a dog who's wobbly for whatever reason.
  6. It can take 8-12 weeks for a dog's gut to fully adjust to a new food, and you usually won't start to see any skin benefits for at least 3 weeks and probably 6. Skin doesn't change that fast. If stool quality is an issue during the transition, (1) slow it down and (2) check with your vet as to his/her favorite probiotic. If your pup was allergic to something in the old food but not in the new food, itchiness too can take 8-12 weeks to resolve. I used to think these things happened faster. Sometimes you get lucky and they do, but not always.
  7. I'm so sorry. Hugs to you, and Godspeed to your sweetheart.
  8. I'm so sorry. Godspeed, sweetie.
  9. He was such an awesome dog. I'm sorry you had to say goodbye. Godspeed, good boy.
  10. I'm so sorry for your loss. Godspeed, sweetie.
  11. What an awful, tragic shock. I'm so sorry. Godspeed, baby girl.
  12. Adding grain to a suspect diet doesn't help. The diets recommended by the experts are grain-inclusive Purina, Hill's, Royal Canin, IAMS, Eukanuba. Lots to choose from amongst those. If you wanted to homecook, BalanceIt is a good, easy option. It's run by board-certified veterinary nutritionists.
  13. There's no reason to rotate if your dog is doing well on the food.
  14. Fromm is one of the companies that has had cases on both their grain-free AND their grain-inclusive diets.
