RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I never had a "poopeater" but you might pick up all the poop in the yard so she has nothing to munch on.....is it one particular dogs poop that she goes for or just any???? On a humorous note. if there is one in this situation) some of the rescue people call dogs like Peaches "recyclers. I'm sure it is hard for them to place such a dog in a new home. I think it is an obsession and not unusual in old dogs I know there are websites on the subject and various ways to deal with it. I think I would look into a soft muzzle when she goes out. One that she can still take a drink of water. I know it's a frustrating problem.

RE: Possible anal sac removal

Our Darcy (min pin) is the first dog we've had with anal gland problems. I asked our vet about surgery if worse came to worst. I was worried because I had heard of some dogs becoming incontinent after that operation. The vet told us that's why she refers such patients to a specialist vet who will map where the dog's rectal nerves are to avoid permanent damage. Mucho bucks, I am sure, but we'll do that if we have to. Fortunately, a change of kibble seems to have made a huge difference. Darcy's had no more issues and doesn't even scoot these days.Yay!

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Every store we've been to this spring, looking for patio cushions, all that's available is those Mexican serape stripes. Apparently, you'll be right in fashion. Woebeit to anyone seeking otherwise.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard, Sue's idea for Izzie is an old time remedy for a cat's hairball. Except not on the nose, we put a little cooking oil on the top of a front paw. Just a dab, not enough for him to fling off.

RE: We RV'd because of the dog

Everybody is different, but in our case, traveling with the (now just one) dog is tons better than traveling without her. BP (before pets) it was all about putting miles behind us. When we started traveling with Rosie and Poquita, (both now gone to The Bridge) we were pretty much forced to stop and smell the rest stops. Neither of us is a social butterfly but those cute little mutts were the greatest ice breakers and got us involved in conversations we never would've had otherwise. Poquita had people from coast to coast wanting to know what breed she was and where they could get a pup just like her. Rosie entertained the troops with her on-demand "singing." Life is just many layers deeper and happier with pets than it ever was without them. That's just our experience, your results may vary. :B

RE: God speed Bud

Aww, Bud will be there with you in spirit, and one day, another friend will wear it.

RE: RVs are kitty homes with chauffeurs and butlers

Also, be really careful in any kind of emergency situation. Cats are so sensitive when their humans are stressed. I am probably not the only one who remembers when one RV.net member was evacuating from Hurricane Ike. He threw everything into his car and last thing, added his cat. Once on the highway, the kitty jumped on the driver's shoulder and out the window and ran off into the woods. :( Cat needs to be contained, even if it is a pillow case.

RE: God speed Bud

I go to pick up the ashes today between 12 and 1 o'clock. I will take his ashes up north to the Lake this summer. That's a very good plan, and will help you feel that your journey with Bud is complete.

RE: RVs are kitty homes with chauffeurs and butlers

The worst horror stories we've heard here over the years involved cats who love hidey holes who met disaster via slides. You can just imagine. Lesson learned: locate and secure all felines before anybody deploys a slide or opens a door.

RE: God speed Bud

So glad you were able to find a vet who would come out when you really needed him/her. I know Bud's days with you were his happiest and quality of life is what's important. Still, it is really hard to lose them when they should've had more years. My sincere sympathies...

How adorable! Lucky you, to get to raise another pup! :B

RE: Rowdy's Big Day and The Kindness of a Vet.

When Poquita died, I offered her vet a bunch of brand-new unopened packages of syringes and meds and he refused them, saying it was against the law for him to use them. He suggested we donate them to a rescue, which we did. Then when Edna died last year, she had been on the expensive, compounded thyroid meds and diet cat food. This time, a different vet gladly took them and said she would pass them along to patients whose owners could not afford them.I guess it just depends. We gave Edna's vet all the cat blankets and beds in Edna's vast 19 year collection. The crematorium also sent a notice saying they donate all the blankets, toys and such that owners want to drop off. Very thoughtful, I thought.

RE: Curses and bad juju for Hostess

Yes, the same with the cupcakes and Twinkies. Since this new company bought the rights to the name, I don't understand why they couldn't have also bought the recipe. The new ones taste very "plastic." Oh, well, it will save us a lot of $$ and potential pounds put on. :W

RE: Children

Ah,yes, I would say you OWE him! :B What breed is Dakota? I would say he's one of the "working" breeds, for sure!

RE: New Pup Coming

I think Cesar, The Dog Whisperer, has a video about training pups from working breeds. It might even be online. I remember him putting a young dog in a kind of harness that held a couple of water bottles. Not real heavy, but to make the dog feel the weight and know she was "working." It wouldn't be hard at all to make that kind of harness or vest. I'm sure there are lots of tips out there.

RE: Dah EMPEROR'S New Jacket!

She is cute and that coat is beautiful on her. It sure would be fun to walk her at the park and let people try to guess her mix. :W

RE: Blue Buffalo 32 m settlement

I don;t even think it was the deletion of icky parts that was the selling point for me. It was more the beautiful commercials, the whole sales pitch and the idea that the higher price meant quality. This and the fact that our dogs and cat LOVED BB, had no issues with it and seemed to do well on it. All of which makes me one of the "eligible" aka soft-touch, pet owners who qualify for the big $5 or $10 refund.

RE: Newest kitty traveler

What a neat set-up for fostering! Stimulating enough to let their energy and their little personalities come out. Aidan is beautiful like a calendar kitty. I would've loved to live next door to someone with a system like that, so I could come over and "socialize" (ie: play with) the kittens. Would be so fun.
