I recently took in a kitten, Dusky, that my uncle found alongside the road on his way home from work one evening and I'm wondering what breed or breeds he may be. The vet said he was about 8 weeks old which puts his birth date around August 20th and he's around 15 weeks now. He is grey, dark grey/black and white with a Mackerel Tabby pattern. The description below is probably overkill but I'm not really sure what matters and what doesn't.

Base color: grey
Stripes/Spots: dark grey/black
Chin, neck, belly and inside of legs: white w/ stripes/spots
Undercoat: white - stripes/spots and base color are only on the ends of his hair

The top of his head is grey with the "M" on his forehead and stripes extending from his forehead to his shoulders. His eyes are ringed in white with grey just under his eyes. He has a well defined dark stripe that extends from the corner of his eye to under the outer edge of his ear. From this stripe and the gray under his eyes down he is white. He has another stripe starting about mid cheek and another that starts about the middle of his jaw, both running back to meet the first near the ear.

His ears are slightly pointed and grey except the tops and bottoms which are slightly darker. The insides are pink with white hair along the inner edges.

I believe his eyes may be changing color and will end up being green. The outer edge is brown and around the pupil is green. In between is a mix. The lining is dark brown.

The tip of his nose is lighter grey with three tiny dark spots along the edges. The leather is dark grey around the outer edges blending to a pinkish brown. His lips are black.

He has a well defined, somewhat dark broken stripe at the top of his chest with broken stripes following until a dark, well defined band around his legs with the following stripes fading until his legs are solid grey with the insides white and the his paws tipped in white.

From his shoulders down the middle of his back to the tip of his tail is a thick, dark stripe. His sides are grey with stripes broken with spots. His belly is  white with stripes broken with spots.

His hind legs are striped with the outside grey and the inside white and stripes that break on the inside. From about knee down they're grey.

His tail is grey, ringed and tipped in black.

He has a skin flap on either side of his belly starting at about the bottom of his belly and extending to about the knee of his hind legs.

And a little about his personality which is BIG. While I've had a cat before, I had to put my previous kitty to sleep just a few weeks before Dusky came into my life, I've never had a kitten and so I'm not really sure how much of his "personality" his because of his breed or just being a kitten.While I've had a cat before I've never had a kitten and so I'm not really sure how much of his "personality" his because of his breed or just being a kitten.

He almost always has to be were ever I am in my apartment. Sometimes (most times) in the early morning hours I have to shut him out of my bedroom so I can get somemore sleep  when he just wants to play. When I get up a few hours later he's laying near my bedroom door.

He's very smart and will come when I call unless something has distracted him. :) He greats me when I get home. Knows were his food/treats are kept and is right by my side when I open the freezer/cabinent to get them out.

He started playing fetch with me today which shocked the hell out of me. I threw one of his toys so that maybe I'd get a minute of peace to eat my lunch and he brought it back to me.

He's also extremely fast. He likes my pantry and will come running from wherever he is in the apartment when he hears the pantry door. I typically can't get in and out before he's leapt to the back corner. I have to be careful when shutting any and all doors or sitting down because he could be there from the other end of the apartment in a flash.

Has anyone ever heard of the Caucasian Ovtcharka dog breed?  I saw a picture and the breed is just huge!  Is it a real dog or just photoshop master having fun?


My female cat is 16 months old and she has not gone into "heat" for three months. We moved to another state three months ago, and interrupted her menses at that time due to the stress of moving--- but since then she has not cycled. She does seem to have hormonal shifts, but nothing "full-blown" so to speak. She has not lost weight, actually she went through a growth spurt since moving, and she is very active, playful, aware, cuddly, talkative-- her normal self really. Her fur is lustrous and beautiful; her bathroom habits are very regular. I feed her the highest quality diet I can afford- wellness brand indoor cat dry food and core wellness wet food. The only other thing perhaps unusual is her premolars finally came in recently.

She is not pregnant because she is velcro to me, and has never been outside without a human. I am a student and will be taking her to the vet in a couple of weeks, but I was hoping someone might offer me some advice or wisdom.

I have pet shop and here there are only these dog brands plz tell me which one is batter !!

After my mom's dog passed earlier this year, it seemed she was in a bit of a rush to adopt a new dog. My mom being a senior, (lives with my fiancee and I) we figured an adult dog would be the best for her. Everyone in the house met the dog at the shelter and we thought her choice was a good one, a cairn terrier (we think she's a mix) Here's the problem: The dog has taken to my fiancee and I and practically ignores my mom. The dog only cares to sit with us, practically snubs my mom if we are around and will go to the bathroom in my mom's bedroom. It's actually quite sad, I feel like maybe my mother is not being enough of a "pack leader" so we are all currently in an obedience course to help my mom gain some confidence with her dog. But the dog still urinates in her room, even though she is housebroken and never has otherwise gone in the house.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello, My Newfoundland dog is 2 years old and his name is Moose. Because I could not find a product to buy to keep his slobber and drools from messing up my home and my families clothes. I had to invent the product myself. The Patent is now Pending so I can start announcing my product to the World ,and I still need some wet mouth dog breeds to make a pattern to fit the size. As of Today I need a Great Dane, BullMastiff, and a few others.

I will make the dog slobber stopper to fit your dogs head and give you the $79 product free. All I need from you are head measurements by following my measuring instructions. I can be reached at slobberstopper@ (space added to stop spammers) And I would love feedback from the dog community.

Can anyone guide me through the stages where 12 year old wire haired fox terrier has lost back legs now is losing control of front. He is incontinent. Freddie has an eddies wheels cart but that doesn't seem to be helping right now. Can anyone share with me what to do to help my dog. He has had the disease for over 3 years.

I have a 5 year old husky-lab mix named Sammie. She's a gorgeous dog but has her fair share of health problems. Recently I noticed her losing a spot of hair above her tail and on the skin, sores have developed. The sores are red and she will occasionally gnaw at them to relieve itching. Through research I believe it to be mange, possibly demodedic, but I want to be sure. I'd just take her to the vet but money is really tight right now and I'm looking for a way to possibly diagnose and treat her myself. I have decent pictures of the spot. Anyone who could lend some insight would be much appreciated. Thank you!
