Finding the right dog
Hi all! My wife and I are now in our 50's and are down-sizing from a large house with big yard to apartment life. Our present pooch, Ed, is collie/sheppard mix, 85 lbs. and about 12 years old. He is in good health but I know he won't live forever. I was looking for help in picking out a new breed more suited to my smaller and less active lifestyle. Appreciate any pointers!!!
Older dog...Forgotten potty training???
I have 13yr old male Siberian Husky. As of about 6 months ago he started going to the bathroom in the house. He only poops in the house. He will ask to go out when he has to urinate. I know 13 is old for a larger dog and he has NEVER had house training problems before. He has even pooped on the floor while I was putting his leash on to take him for a walk. Is he senile? Any suggestions?
Crate training problem
We have a new 1 1/2-year-old Shih-Tzu mix who has a wonderful temperament and responsive to training. But even with rewards training to get him to like and use his crate like a den, he doesn't like it at night with door closed and yelps constantly.
He feels imprisoned. Is this because he is an adult dog and did not grow up with crate training from puppy stage? We had success with our prior pups and crate training, but this does not seem to be working. Any advice???

I really miss you Maisy
My dog named Maisy was a boxer and she had something wrong with her from that dog food poisonig. She was one of the best dogs you could get. My mom was attached to her and before she was dead we took her to the vet to see what was wrong with her and the vet said that it was the poisoning they thought. My mom still has her ashes to this very day. :(
Cairn Terrier acts like something is after her all the time
My dog acts like something is after her all the time. She is very nervous, gittery, and bites (licks) at her front legs (up high almost in her arm pit) just like she has fleas. I cant find any signs of ticks or fleas. She also runs and hides under things constantly just like someone or something is after her. She hovers around me like she has a safe zone. If i am touching her she seems to be fine. Any help.......??????
Dog has a fever
I woke up this morning and noticed that my dog was acting a little off. Normally in the morning he is very cheerful, always greats me with a wagging tail, and jumps around until I complete his morning routine. However, this morning he woke up and was groggy and looked liked his muscles were aching.
When I took his temperature, it came in at 103 degrees. Normally his temperature is around 100 degrees.
I don’t want to just rush him off to the vet, as I understand people and animals get sick and a fever is not necessarily an emergency situation. Does anyone have any advice for how I can help keep my boy comfortable? Also, at what point should I be concerned enough to take him to the vet?
My dog which is a chocalate lab and a rot woller cross, not very active. would this because of him eating a frog. he is hardly eating anyting. My wife has tried to give him some milk. can someone tell me what medicine i can use to cure him.
Please Somebody Help Us!!
Almost three weeks ago we had to put our Beautiful Tippy to sleep. It was so unexpected that we didnt have time to prepare ourselves for it. She was a Happy go lucky dog one minute and a very sick girl the next. We made the decison not to be with her when they did the deed because she had such bad viens that to put an iv in her would have just caused her way more pain. They said they had to put one in if we stayed if not they would just give her a shot. Im not surewhy but when my mom asked why they couldnt just give her a shot while we were they they wouldnt answer us. But as we stood by the desk we heard her give a very high pitch yelp. The vet said it was nothing and she did it well she was dying. But the sound she made still rings in our ears its not a sound that any of my family will forget and I as her owner can not get over it. Does anyone know why a Dog would male such a sound? I know this is a stupid question but I am hurtiing over this in ways only one who has lost a beloved pet would know.
I really miss you Nene
My dog Nene died from a seizure. She died from the seizure from having puppies. She had about 3 litters. She died when she was in her doghouse milking her puppies. After she died we had to milk 12 puppies! It took a while to milk all of them. My grandma helped us out and took 5 puppies out of 12. That left my family to 7 puppies to milk. I miss all of the puppies. My grandma sold all of them she had. We sold all of them except for 1 puppy. We still have her. Shes trouble so that's why we called her Trouble. She loves to chase after my 3 horses. Especially my miniature ponies. She won't even dare to bark at my Quarter horse Candy. She is about 15 hands I think. My miniature horses names are Sage and Ginger. Ginger is a mommy. She had Sage 6 months ago. Ginger is a mare and Sage is a stallion. Sage is so sweet but he likes to bite. Ginger is so stubborn she wont even let you brush her! But she only lets you pet her if you have any of her favorite foods. Apples, sweet feed, bread, and broccoli. Sage is full of cockaburs right now. I can't even get all of the cockaburs out right now! He has so many that I can't get all of them out because there's so much. Well I have to go eat dinner. I miss you Nene!
