  1. We’re staying at the Gold Leaf, so the beach around there (or wherever Campbell Cocktail lands) Mercsmom — yes.
  2. I am also in Jersey. Jefferson HAS to be nekkid when he goes out to potty. I am allowed to put a coat for walkies, but he isnt likely to go to the bathroom wearing the heavy one. 5 minutes out there is fine, even as cold as it has been. You are doing well.

    Oh, damn it. Robin, I am so sorry for your loss. He was a great boy!
  4. November 24th is Jeffersons Gotcha Day. It was Black Friday last year, so we celebrated today, but this is a good reason to rinse and repeat tomorrow.
  5. I did. The sign up generally happens this time of year, so I went looking for it and found this instead.
  6. Well, damn. I didnt Secret Santa last year (divorce, dying dog). Im really sad to see that Jefferson wont get to experience the joy of a GT Christmas. I hate that FB is taking away from a much more human site like this.
  7. Jefferson chewed the bejebbus out of his crate when he first came home, drooling so much on his blankets that we thought he was peeing in there. We switched to a muzzle so he couldnt eat the doors and doorknobs, baby gates to limit his movement, and Xanax to chill to him out (given about an hour before we left). He adjusted to our routine within about a month. He doesnt love it when the routine changes, and still needs to be muzzled if we are outside gardening or grilling and dont want him with us. Other than that, hes fine. The muzzle is your best friend. Its not cruel its like a seatbelt for doggie snooters. ;-)
  8. Xanax. Really. Just enough to take the edge off, given about 1/2 an hour before you leave for any real length of time. LOTS of alone training for short periods. (Start with 2 minutes at time, wait an hour, rinse and repeat.) My current boy drooled so much a king sized comforter would be soaked. Using a muzzle instead of the crate and giving a low dose of Xanax helped a ton. Hes still a nervous guy when I change his routine, but is fine with my work schedule and grocery shopping.
  9. Just did a 2 human, 2 hound, 1 little dog vacation in a Honda HRV. Wouldnt suggest it for hounds with space issues, but it was fine for us. Ex-husbands minivan was better, so a minivan will likely be my next vehicle. :-/
