RE: West Coast residents...Cascadia Subduction EQ could be near.

Hey, you guys gotta pay the price for all that nice weather, beaches, and mountains. :) We get winter, and you get earthquakes. :) Exactly! I'm a native Californian and have lived through (and close to) the 1971 San Fernando quake as well as the 1994 Northridge shaker. I'll tell you, one of those will get your adrenaline going! At the same time an earthquake provides a very interesting study in human behavior. you're immediately busted back to indigenous person status, shaking off debris,astounded at how angry the trusted ground beneath your feet can turn. Aftershocks are more frightening than the main event. You learn that all the flotsam and jetsam you've collected was really not that important. You find a new awareness of your need for shelter, food and water, and neighbors. It's no use worrying about how we will leave this earth, but a nice 6.7 will remind a person that we all are very temporary. Following an earthquake, we experience, for, at least a brief time, a new appreciation for the comfort we've taken for granted. It's like pushing the restart button on Life. That and the privilege of living in a such beautiful state with wonderful weather are totally worth it.

How did the intro go?

RE: What's her name to be

That's one gorgeous pup, no matter what you call her! I vote for Razz as it has has a good, solid ring to it.

RE: I don't have a cat . . .

Ooooh, sounds like the plan is coming together! In no way, though, was I thinking of a sweet little squirrel size kitty. I was thinking more that we could come to the aid of those nice people we saw on news earlier this year. You know, the ones cowering in the corner of their bedroom and calling 9-1-1 while their devil cat terrorized them. Gretchen and Inga would not have a problem with that kitty, I'm thinking. As for what to feed him, well, obviously, anything he wants! :E :B

RE: I don't have a cat . . .

We're missing the point here, people! The point is: WALTER HAS NO CAT! That is clearly unacceptable! Let's all work on a transport relay and get a nice, big ol' fuzzy cat to Missouri! Who's in???

RE: Fast eater

Our Rosie (chi mix, now at The Bridge) was the runt of her litter and the people we got her from said she was "the best eater" of the bunch. Boy, howdy! She was a gulper all her life and an inveterate beggar. Our other dog had been a free feeder (food down all day) and never overate. That had to change real soon when Rosie got here. What kind of food do you feed them? That amount sounds like a lot for 15 lb dogs, unless they are very active. Not being critical, but I know now we overfed Rosie and we might have had her longer if otherwise.

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

What a cute photo of Mama with her favorite toy. You can tell she has her eyes open just enough to make sure none of the other dogs tries to grab it. :B

RE: Goodbye, my Keiss . . .

That, Sir, is a wonderful piece of writing and the photo is magazine-worthy. Thank you so much for sharing the loss of a very special friend. You are among those who fully understand.

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

I'm thinking of all the beloved pets we readers have loved and lost during these almost ten years. It was/is so painful to lose them but Old Fella taught us it is quality of life, not quantity that matters. Every single one of those furkids was dearly loved and knew it. Great lessons, Old Fella and Richard and Sue.

RE: Lily reports on Kokofriend picture added

Good job, Lily! It only stands to reason that you, being the youngest, would be the most computer savvy. And I'm sure you can identify with that darned spay surgery Barb had to have. Tell us, does she have to wear The Cone of Shame? That must be just the last straw! But you are a great little girl and will take good care of her and make sure she doesn't go running any marathons or things like that, I am sure. Just help Mama and give her lots of hugs and kisses. Tell her we are all wishing her a speedy recovery and good health, once more. Happy Holidays to your whole family!

RE: Not a tumor - gloves!

Oh my gosh! I wonder how many times that kind of thing has happened! Wouldn't it seem that a vet could tell the difference? Bandit saved his own life. I wonder if he'll be broken of that very bad habit. Hope so!

RE: A question on the Parvo shot

(possibly) dumb question: Is Parvo a separate shot or included in the multi?

RE: Turn for the worse

Be assured, you are among people who understand. I'm so sorry, but those words sound so empty. What a vet! So rare is the one who understands owners the way they understand dogs. RIP Buddy Blue. You were loved, and you knew it.

RE: Boarding Dog In Kennel in Yuma AZ

Due to a family emergency, I may be needing a kennel in Yuma to board our dog while we are out of town. Has anyone used any kennels in the area and were you pleased with them. We don't live in Yuma, but have you checked YELP for your area? I've found those reviews usually helpful.

RE: Ecuador

I was thinking to ask your new friends if they know a gardener. I'd see if he might save you a handful of fresh cut grass you could sprinkle on that puppy pad. I don't know if that would be enough to "trigger" Izzy's potty response, but it's worth a try.

RE: Ecuador

Wow, what a lifestyle change, huh? I'm glad you made it through the web of paperwork for your exit. Also glad the wees are taking their transplant in stride. That grass must have been a happy sight, for the girls and for you. How are things going with your house listing? Does dad have to go back to deal with that? Here's hoping the sale goes smoothly and you can soon have that all behind you. Congrats on the move and I'll bet your old neighbors are wishing they could've gone with you about now.

RE: Leash Training

Yes! Very good! We had seen larger dogs with Gentle Leaders for years at the park. When we got Darcy, a stubborn little min-pin, we struggled so much walking her that we wondered if there was a small size GL model. There is! We found one on Amazon and as with your girl, the change was immediate. Occasionally, people ask if she is wearing a muzzle. We tell them no, it is "power steering." They laugh and immediately understand. Bud undoes the nose loop for the fast-walk part of their daily excursion. Darcy looks forward to that and behaves perfectly. It was a learning curve, though. Glad it is working out so well for you.

RE: Sadly I don't have very good luck with dogs

I talked to our friend whose dog has made such a great recovery from mast cell cancer. She's convinced it's because she took him to a veterinary oncologist. I wish you and Sassy the very best of luck.

RE: Sadly I don't have very good luck with dogs

We have a friend whose dog turned up with mast cell cancer. She opted for surgery + chemo and spent a small fortune. I thought, "Why? You're probably just going to lose him, anyway." That was five years ago and the dog is fine. You're right, you really do have to go with your own gut feeling, after gathering all the info you can. That way you don't have to wonder What if.
