There is a product - Forbid that is added to the food (you'd have to do all your guys food). Also, MSG (Accent brand name in the grocery) sprinkled like heavy salt on the food works 90 percent of the time. Again, sprinkle on all your guys food.

...The only problem my girls have is that they don't get time zone changes... All three of them, right? :W I'm not touching that one...

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

Both of my Girls have better internal clocks than I do. They get fed lunch at 1 pm. They will be laying around napping, then all of a sudden here they are sitting in front of me by 1245. They go out for the last time by 8 pm and it's the same thing, they are sitting waiting for me 15 minuted early every time. My DW gets home from work around 5:30 and the Girls will start waiting for her each day around 5:15. So to answer Richards question, Yes they can tell time. So true. The only problem my girls have is that they don't get time zone changes or change from and to daylight saving time.

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

The roads really have not been a problem, the cold a little unpleasant but livable. The real issue for us has been this flu/chest cold. It just knocks you down, the worst cough I've had in my life and NO energy. We holed up in Birmingham for 4 days trying to regain strength. Today we'll finally get to Gulf Shores, Garland says 70s predicted this weekend... Doug

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

We're hunkered down in Birmingham, temps warming to the lower 20s today. We're both fighting heavy chest colds, so not doing much. Not complaining about the temps as the real temp is -8 at home right now. We'll get to Gulf Shores eventually, it will still be there in a couple of days :B. Happy New Year to all. Doug

RE: Christmas present from USDA

We need to avoid political comments here. That being said, there are good reasons for some regulations, others seem to generate more and more regulations and reporting. The reporting is often a PITA. It kind of sounds like they are trying to get you to be the investigative and enforcement arms of the EPA and IRS. I found the OSHA reports of workplace injury/incidents for a business with 13 employees was a little excessive considering the type of business I ran, I guess understandable but documentation was pretty time consuming.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Of all the expectorants in the world, I actually rediscovered one that works within a half hour: bourbon, lemon juice and honey. Also soothed my throat, the fumes helped open the sinuses, and I could actually taste it. So that's been my evening libation the last several nights, and I could go to bed with a clear chest. Well, I have an appetite now, so it's lunchtime. Later, y'all. My dad would swear by hot toddy's. My grandmother was a teetotaler but that was one libation (medicinal of course )allowed. I'm fighting the same issues,as many in our area are. It's a little more than just sinusitis, probably flu despite getting the geezer flu shot. I see a cure in my future. Doug

Merry Christmas to all. I know it's cold, but this was my weather station is morning. http://i454.photobucket.com/albums/qq261/dturm/temp.jpg height=300 Notice the wind chill was -10. We're looking forward to getting out of here tomorrow.

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

....We have been watching the Hallmark channel Christmas movies during the Christmas season. Some good movies and beats all the violence on some of the other channels....Ditto. And, it especially beats watching "the news", whether it's local, national or world.:R We do like to watch the weather report, however.:W I just wish the forecast for next Wednesday was not so dang COLD! We leave for Gulf Shores that day. :C Same here!! Richard, try offering a treat for the object in the mouth. They only get the treat when the object is dropped, then straight inside with LOTS of praise. Reminds me of all of our Goldens... Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Mele Kalikimaka, Happy Kwanzaa and every other winter celebration to everyone :B

I guess the counter surfing, I suspect he's trained NOT to do that :)

Sorry about the loss in your family.

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

I do have experience with gentle leaders and similar products: good reviews!! There are several other newer type of restraints that basically pull the arm pits when the dog pulls. I have no experience with them, but some really like them. The major problem I've had is with walking multiple dogs. There is no good way to manage them when there are different energy levels. I feel your (and Sue's) pain...

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

Dale any food adds blood sugar to the system when you are a diabetic. So be careful with the treats. Controlling blood sugar in a dog will have to be a real challenge... I used to recommend a treat - Pupcorn, it almost empty calories - an air puffed treat that really helps in weight control as well as glucose levels in diabetics. It's widely available in multiple flavors, amazon has it online.

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

Dr. Doug any recommendations of does and don'ts for Dixie during her recovery period? A lot depends on the surgery. If no complications and "usual" procedure, a few days of pretty strict limitations should be enough. Pretty strict means no running off leash and no jumping like on and off a bed. Don't panic if there is an unwanted action, just try to minimize those actions. As far as trying to get in your lap, I suspect stretching abdominal muscles involved in that action will prevent it as long as you need to prevent it. Crate confinement would only be necessary if you are not there to supervise or she doesn't comply with the program.

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

Sounds to me like separation anxiety/attachment issues found frequently in young energetic dogs that have not had a stable "youth." I've found these guys benefit from anti-anxiety meds while going through training and adjustment. Prozac or similar product could be useful for a short time while doing the training and adjustment then give plenty of EXERCISE during this period. Doug, DVM

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

https://i.imgur.com/HgOmi3Ol.jpg This is what is happening here now. 26 degrees this morning. We've got the same thing, it was 20 this morning. I again propose that we move Thanksgiving to the 3rd Thursday in September, Christmas three weeks later, keep Halloween in Oct. Then we can get out of here the 1st of November :B

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

One thing comes to mind about Labs. When our daughter and son in law would come over and bring Jack (Lab) we would move all breakables up higher so his wagging tail didn't break anything or knock it off the end and coffee tables. :B Also, no breakable ornaments on Christmas tree below about 2 feet and no open drink containers on coffee tables.

RE: Doggie car sickness

There are several meds that can help, some OTC other prescription. Consult your vet for appropriate med and dose. These are pretty effective in treating car sickness. Doug, DVM
