  1. Depends on the individual d og and bunny. Been there done that with a goof putcome.
  2. Thoughts and prayers ftrom Texas. I lost my Rex to GME. Depo Medrol bought him a short amount of time but not sure I'd go that route again.

    LOL.  Dr. Suzanne Stack and her crew spent a night in their RV in my driveway a few years ago.

     She had it down unbelivebly. :)












  4. Deer antlers are prohibitly expensive for our house. The Nylabone wishbone is the all time favorite.
  5. My friend had great success with the DAP collar AND plug in. once she used both togethrr it was a wijn.
  6. When I lived in Illinois we all had to get renter's insurance. This is my conversation with State Farm - Agent: "Do you have a dog?" Me: "yes" Agent "Breed and weight?" Me: "Yorkshire terrier. Eight pounds"" Agent: "Is the dog attack trained?" OP - I agree check with your insurance agent.
  7. My friend had great success by using BOTH the DAP collar and diffuser. The collar alone didn't work but the combo did. FWIW
  8. Most of my large dogs have had a visible collar and a harness overlay for walks. Various Premiere harnesses have worked well at reasonable cost for us.
  9. Again - I sound crazy but when I got the dogs off the farms they really did lean the difference at turnouts between "go potty" and "go potty go to bed".
  10. You can read until your eyes bleed but all of that has no guarantee the dog you get will have done the same reading.
  11. I'd run away from a group that had required reading. My first greyhound Little Girl was a basket case but she taught me about greyhounds and I taught her about being a pet.
  12. With my marginal grasp of reality I have taken it various times of day and am still alive. What a cutie Patch is. Reminds me of my Rex.
  13. Broken record. I believe that they have Iams green bag there. Went to heck and back with Rex. It is the beet pulp that fixes it.
  14. Good advice above. Let sleeping dogs lie is good advice. In dealing with lots of farm dogs I learned it is actually better to feed water and go about your business as if they aren't there for a few days. I would use a kennel with an OPEN door as a woobie spot. sometimes a blankett over the top helps.
  15. I lost my thyroid 43 years ago. My directions since have been to take in the morning on an empty stomach.
  16. Good advice above. I transported two greyhounds (one of which was always over 90#) thousands of miles in the back seat of a Mazda Protage. If space seems to be a problem do as suggested and fill in the rear footwells with pillows and throw a comforter over the whole thing. When I was pulling dogs off the farms I'd often have two big boys in the back and a petite girl curled in the passenger seat. Never had issues. To me two dogs have always been easier than one as they keep each other occupied.
  17. I am absolutely amazed that a thread has lasted 20 years.
  18. One of mine got a lump from an infected salivary glad.
  19. Please remember it's a dog. An often quirky wonderful dog. Feed, water, love and play with it and you'll both survive. Don't overanalyze.
  20. I'm just a layman so am not a voice of authority, While I believe that some/most owners in the UK train dogs outside the track environment it would be practically impossible to properly train a racing NGA grey if one just owns a dog or two in the USA. You might look into lure coursing.
  21. MP is right - if he's drinking he may just need a couple of days rest. When you are over the hump Natural Balance Fat Dogs might be good option at 7.5 % fat. Poodle thrived for years on Natural Balance Ultra light but the discontinued it. My vet tried to push w/d on me . Just look at the ingredients and you'll see why I said no. All oh Hill's senior and low far foods have cellulose high up on the list. Cellulose is plant fiber so the food could contain anything from sawdust to cotton. BTW - Poodle's insulin was the type that is $27.99 at Wal Mart. Might check on that f you need insulin. to you and your boy.
  22. The topic thread sounds like a children's game. gone bad
