RE: what should my puppy chew

Congrats on your new pup! What size dog is she going to be? With the toy breeds, you need to be more careful as the teeth aren't as dense as in larger breeds. Also, the little guys get intestinal blockages more easily, so it's good that you aren't giving her rawhides. Have you tried Milkbone?

RE: My Boy's Sick ...

Tramadol, at Calvin's dosage, won't have withdrawal symptoms so no Betty Ford needed. However, if you notice his activity level dropping off and he seems to have more pain, he might still need the two a day. Unless your vet wants him tapered off of it, regardless. I haven't heard of side effects, except itching, which might happen if he's getting too much. I'm not a vet, of course, just have had an Rx for Tramadol myself, for years and have never taken more than 2 a day

RE: Self-Inflicted Eye Injury

Owie, owie! I am feeling that one for the poor guy. :E I know If I get even a speck of trash in an eye, it hurts and waters so badly. Tennis balls have a rough (and likely dirty) covering so it must have been an effect like scuffing a shoe. There's just no way to predict all the ways kids, even furkids can get hurt. It's great that he got such fast medical treatment. Bet the vet never heard of such a bizarre accident. Feel better soon, Jackson!

RE: Surgical Anal Gland Removal

My friend's little dog (littermate to one of ours) had to have that surgery on an emergency basis. She was in the hospital for days and the bill was a whole lot more than $500. Ask your vet to define "candidate." If your pooch meets that criteria, give it serious thought. You know how those vet emergencies always seem to occur at night or on the weekend.

RE: New cat in house......dog is not happy

Noel, in the circumstances you describe, you've got the best possible outcome. Your wife is my hero, too! Bless her for rescuing that kitty. Did the vet check for a microchip? Dog and cat may not end up best buddies but more like tolerant siblings of different ages and interests. When Slobbermouth sees that there is enough food and affection for both of them, she'll be fine. Congrats on the new "kid."

RE: My Boy's Sick ...

"Process of elimination" That's what Calvin calls it, too! :B I think they just keep us around to clean up after them. Glad nothing bad turned up in the test results.

When do you get today's results? With all of us pulling for him, your boy will be better soon!

RE: vet bill

If it's just a tiny piece a wood, she could've been rooting under a fence, the edge of a shed, even possibly around a tree. I'm glad she has a good prognosis. Many years ago, we had a totally indoor cat that ran outside when a kid came in. She had no experience with the great outdoors and darned if she didn't run straight into a rosebush! She drove a rose thorn completely inside one of her eyes. I could see it like an object in a snow globe. To my amazement, our old country vet not only got the thorn out, but saved the cat's vision. Kitty's name was Trouble and not without reason. :E

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Question for you: Will a longtime salt lick location forever sterilize the soil under it? A relative inherited a cabin and noticed everything green is dead under and near a deer salt lick that has been going for decades. Thanks!

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

Our Darcy has a lot of male dog traits. I read someplace that if a female pup is between two male pups in utero, she will sometimes get a little extra dose of testosterone from that fetal exposure. Sounds as plausible as any other explanation. When Darcy arrived in our household, she never tried to claim alpha status, though. That was Rosie's spot and she wasn't about to give it up. :W

RE: My Boy's Sick ...

I'd do the same thing, Lance. re: not waiting for a week for the liver tests, etc. You've been down this road before, and need to know what is realistic to expect or hope for. We've regretted over-treating Poquita's liver issues, in retrospect. Calvin's much younger, though. Each case is different, but it's always tough, isn't it?

RE: Wow!

Purtty funny, but Calvin would've bit his tail off! Pops That's why I'm thinking the one doing the "holding" is probably the mom of the other dog. Who else would you trust? :@

RE: Wow!

http://www.pawmygosh.com/brilliant-teamwork/ That is so darn cute and funny! I wonder how they worked out the details? "Look, I'll lean out over the edge and you..." :B

RE: My Boy's Sick ...

However, he seems to be getting back to his ole self again, feeling much better, wanting to walk the property with me. We know he's still off though, because this was the FIRST time he didn't fuss about getting his nails clipped. I'd take it as a very good sign that he wants to help you walk the property. How's his appetite? As for not protesting the nail trim, well, sometimes you gotta pick your battles. :W

RE: To B or not to B

It's a legitimate concern. If we had rented a class B, we wouldn't have bought one, especially a new unit. Short trips are good but a coast to coast vacation feels like coexisting in a space the size of a bathroom. It's all about the individuals' space requirement.

RE: Pleasure Way Bed Question

Thanks for all the input. Looks like the solution is to leave the back cushions at home. That works for me. We also did not use the round table on our one and only trip so far, so I think that will also stay at home. Bobbie Another tip we read here years ago, was to change the fitting for the smaller table from center to off-set. This makes the space on the table top much more adaptable. Bud says he used one of the mounting holes and then drilled a new hole where the mounting bracket landed to one side. Then when you're using the post up front with the seats, you can swing the table to one side to make walking through easier.

RE: Pleasure Way Bed Question

We have a 2004 Excel TD that we bought new and since the first trip, those bolsters have been in the closet at home, along with one table. We like the twin configuration w/nightstand, too. The only thing we really did not like was how hard the foam mattresses were. Now we have memory foam mattress pads topped by egg-crate foam mattress pads that make them much more comfortable. I had to alter fitted sheets to accommodate all this, but it's worth it in summer. In cold weather, we use the Travasacks. We bought a small bolster to mount on the wardrobe behind the driver's head so he wouldn't be as likely to get whiplash. I covered it with some matching upholstery material.

Update on lost/found parrot that now speaks Spanish

Such a heartwarming end to this lost and found pet story. Nigel's amazing journey

RE: The Dream Came True

Yay for you! Sounds perfect! Our B has cobwebs, "life happens" but we keep hoping to make some more trips. Is that Marcy sitting by the steering wheel? And most importantly, do you have freezer room for your ice cream? :W Poquita liked to sleep in the sleeping bag with me. Funny, she was Bud's dog but in cold weather, my sleeping bag was apparently warmer. :)

RE: Parrot lost...returns speaking Spanish UPDATE! pg 2

There was a local news story last night that said the people who've had Nigel for the past couple of years took him to a vet to see if his ID could be traced. You know, they say those parrots do go through many owners in their lifetime. The little buggers can wear on your nerves! :B
