from ORD to LAX.

he's now a crazy attack dog that loves to bark. we dunno what's going... it's like.. he's a d'frent dog - i've heard him bark a total of 2 times in the 2 yrs we've had him ???

he stays outside at the parents' house in the yard; the house is so small he has no room to run around. every morning, he barks at other dogs walking about, as well as bums off the street. and at nite, instead of sleeping in his house, he sleeps right in front of the door steps. since the parents own a liquour store, they're SOOO happy he barks... me, i dunno.. i think he's possesed.

yikes! sorry for the large pix!

we're lame.. so both of our dogs kept their names from previous owners....

w00t!!! called the local emergency vet, they advised induced vomiting. i asked her thrice: "are you SURE? the mango seed is about 4" long, 3" wide and .5" thick". she told us to feed her a can of wet dog food, followed by 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide. 'she's a big girl ya know'...

9 minutes later, mango seed popped right out... thanks everyone!!!

stupid owner (me)... my golden retriever spat out the seed, and the st. bernard pup (90 lbs) scooped it up, started to chew on it.. next thing i know, she swallowed it...

i'm pretty da** sure she's not gonna be able to crap it out or puke it back up... i think we're gonna be heading to the doggy ER soon as soon as i can find one...

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / anxiety salivation = soaking Saint?

we're stumped by this recent development:

Nikki, after being crated for only an hour or so, would become soaking wet on her bottom side. it's not pee, we're 99% sure... but it does smell a lil... and since we just washed her... ugh... everytime she's crated she becomes stinkier :(

she's dampest near her neck/chest, but it also extends to as far as her rear hind legs. i understand dogs do pant/salivate when they're anxious, but every time i come home  she feels like she peed on herself..

thoughts? anyone?

Medical Conditions & Diseases / is humping bad for the hip?
« on: December 04, 2005, 11:40:11 am »
Cody likes to hump Nikki when they're out and running around. Nikki is getting too tall for Cody now.. and he must jump up n down in order to hump her. (will attempt to capture this rapturous moment on film to illustrate my point)

it's even worse when the ground's icy and they're both slippin and slidin when this activity is enacted. i really don't mind Cody doing his dominance thing because when inside, Nikki likes to smack him around. i feel he should be allowed his chance for redeption.  ;) but the question is: is this bad for his hip? should I be worried for the long run?

ain't there another doggy portrait artist on the board? groupbuy (ie, price discount? :) on dog portraits anyone?

them dot things are pretty cool, for a sec there i thought it was some computer generated thing...

the solid gold food should already have plenty of glucosamine, no?solid gold also has ascorbic acid in most - if not all - of their foods. ascorbic acid == Vit C so...

we found out cody had massive flea allergies after trying to switch food in vain for 2 months as well :( :( :( now we're religious about frontline come spring thru fall...

edit:  (just re-read; no it doesn't seem to have glucosamine nor chondroitin)

good read.. but the
"Not sure if I would choose the tug of war game. Why did you choose that as the means of interaction?"
question rings true to me. blogger's answer doesn't seem very satisfactory & someone else wrote :
I believe Woodhouse also wrote that tug was fine as long as the dog and person both knew it was a game.

we ARE dealing with dogs here right? They're s'pose to know it's a game and not an exercise in dominance? yikes!!! it'd be SO easy for that dobie to overpower that 2.5yo boy, and just wreck his life forever...

as another concerned commenter wrote:
Personally, I neither play tug with my dogs nor trust them with children unitiated to dogs, nevermind combine the two
and I tend to agree with him instead, i don't play tug w/ me doggies. when someone attempts to play tug, they're taught to drop it, or else they get a good kick in the behind. (no, really, j/k!)
