RE: What Brand Dog Food do you Feed Your Dog and Why?

I don't believe dogs are color blind, either. Our Rosie would go nuts if anybody wearing a red or orange shirt walked toward us.

RE: What Brand Dog Food do you Feed Your Dog and Why?

Our old country vet (now at the Bridge) told us he had patients who lived all their long lives on "Come & Get It" and were perfectly healthy. Then again, he had some other patients who were fed the most expensive premium commercial products and had all sorts of medical issues. He speculated that the results are partly genetic and partly just plain luck.

RE: What Brand Dog Food do you Feed Your Dog and Why?

We had routine labs done on Darcy recently, because she is nearly 8 yrs old. She had no symptoms, but turned up with "a few crystals" in urine, so she's on Royal Canin SO for urinary tract. I really hope that's not all she can have, forever! :E We re-test in 3 weeks.

RE: Microchips

This story was on our local news last year and is the only negative result I've heard of on the subject. Seems like application error, rather than product fault. California people are largely VERY fond of animals and a fund was created to have a vet neurologist remove the chip. The last I heard, the little guy had been adopted as a special needs pet.

RE: Microchips

There are so many heartwarming stories on the news about pets that came home, thanks to a microchip, sometimes many years later. Recently there was one that the thief had taken the trouble to dye its coat! Apparently, some crematoriums also report the animal as deceased as I've seen that on some of our past dogs' Avid files.

RE: Teaching a dog to "talk"

I know Ricky (legal name: Ricardo Montalbird) didn't make Rosie's ears hurt with his vocalizing, as it was mostly chatter. However, if he pulled a feather out, he would screech as if he hadn't anticipated pain, and all three dogs would run to his cage to see who hurt Ricky.

RE: Teaching a dog to "talk"

Ricky, our Cockatiel, gets so excited when he hears one of our daughters' voices on the phone. He grew up listening to them, and he is 24 years old. Rosie (chi-mix now at The Bridge) used to go off when Ricky started chattering and howl her coyote impression in response. Never knew if she was telling him "Please, for the love of all that's holy, stop!" or if she was saying, "Right on, Ricky!" Sure miss Rosie. I'll bet Ricky does, too.

RE: Lost our little traveling companion

Oh, ouch! That is really tough, especially with Chloe being a big part of your life for such a long time. There's no easy way, no shortcuts. You will look for her everywhere and tear up at the darndest little thing that reminds you. Such perfect love, they give us. All you can do is be grateful for the time you had with her, and I know you are, but STILL! One day you will realize she never left at all. She will be in your hearts forever.

RE: credit card out of state

We call Visa every year and tell them we are headed toAZ , the states were going though and how long we will be. The first couple of years or so we still kept getting the decline deal. So wife called them and told them what is happening and we have to use our Discover card. For some reason the are right on top of it now. LOL It's a good idea to have two different companys' CC's, each in the possession of a different person. We also have two rig keys, one in the pocket of each of us. More than once, that has saved calling a locksmith.

RE: credit card out of state

We were on vacation in the RV one time, using our CC in random states. The CC company called the house to ask if it was okay. Daughter found the message on our machine and called and told us, so we let them know it was legit. After that, we notify the CC company that we're making a trip. It's good to give them your cell number, too. We appreciate the extra layer of security.

RE: Car Wash for Sprinter

Another thing to check is belt buckles. A nice, shiny belt buckle can badly "key" your paint job. There are car detailers that come around our neighborhood once in awhile. We usually end up paying them about $100 as the rig is pretty dirty by that time. We watch them work, too. Don't want anybody doing risky aerobatics on the roof. Bud likes to wash the B himself, but pays dearly for it with pain everytime.

RE: What do you tell your dog (s) ....

per Wikipedia: "All collies playing Lassie have been male, playing a female dog. The female collie loses her coat at least once a year, making it unsuitable for use year-round. Also, the male is larger and a child actor can play opposite the dog for a longer period of time." (Sorry to break your heart, Calvin) :(

RE: What do you tell your dog (s) ....

Yeah, I learned the hard way- it's never a good idea to teach a dog to read, or drive! They don't need to. They have made a lifetime occupation of studying us and know everything we're going to do before we do it. ie: Just THINK about going somewhere and they'll meet you at the door. Remember that dish of leftovers and they'll be at the fridge before you get there. I guess we are an easy study. :W

RE: Dang Wabbits ... Now guess what?

Nah, Pops. Edna took all four foots with her when she went to the Rainbow Bridge at age 19. Sure miss her.

RE: Dang Wabbits ... Now guess what?

Pops, I used to tease Edna (cat) by holding her little white hind foot between my finger and thumb and telling her, "You know, this would make a perfect 'lucky rabbit's foot'." She would shiver every time. :B Mean, huh?

RE: Dang Wabbits ... Now guess what?

Lance, I really enjoy your descriptions of the rabbits. The baby bunny playing "statue" while Calvin walked by is classic! I don't believe that strategy would work so well with a different dog. :E But then, rabbits seem to reincarnate rather rapidly. Rabbits are just so beautiful, aren't they? I raised an orphan jackrabbit when I was a kid. His coat was so luxurious to touch. Who would ever guess? But then he never tamed and we had to let him free out in the country. I loved my time with him, though. Everything is a life lesson.
