what is my dog telling me
I have a 10 month old Boxer mix who sits on my older Lab's head. She folds one leg under her with her bottom on the head of the Lab. Is this for dominance or is she quirky
Puppy Care Tip Needed
Just got a new puppy and he wont sleep through the night. He is always barking and crying. Should I take him out of the cage and let him sleep on my bed? It seems like it might be a good idea, at least so i can get a good night of sleep.

Myth about cats having 9 lives?
Does anyone know where the myth about cat's having 9 lives comes from? I was thinking that maybe it's because they land on their feet? But thats another questions, do they always land on their feet?
Does anyone hv any thoughts on Brittany Spaniels ? i.e. temperament, etc. We currently hv an elderly English Setter, and wondering 'bout temperament, lifespan, size of the spaniels, I thought there was a larger spaniel but cannot seem to locate the name of the breed .. ?? thanks, nancy lee
Young Cat Cannot Stop Playing!
I have a young cat, 1.5yr male, who lives with two 10-yr old female cats (sisters, very close). He gets along very well with one of the girls and they play alot, but he is pouncing on the other one (who has only just tolerated him to this point) constantly for the past month or two.
Side notes - he was my mother's cat and she passed away a couple of months ago. He has lived with these other two cats, with no other changes in the household, almost his whole life. Previously he and the grouchy cat (well, she is NOW) ignored each other.
I am guessing that he is still missing my mom and taking it out on the grouchy cat. He has energy to spare and even though we do play with him alot, his attention to her seems to be on the increase. No destruction involved, just lots of chasing and pouncing with nails withdrawn.
We are considering adopting another young cat, a female, to play with him. Good idea/bad idea? I could use some help.
My dog was diagnosed with a melanoma in her mouth - lymph nodes were clear and vet suggests a radical surgery to remove part of the pallet and jaw in hopes that they will get all the cancer saying it was an 80% chance of success.I'm concerned if her quality of life will be effected long term. My gut is telling me not to go for the surgery - to put her through this pain - but the doctors suggest strongly that it is the way to go.Has anyone experienced the surgery to remove a dog's melanoma and if so, what was/is your advice on whether I should go ahead with the surgery. Thanks, Etna
Gingivitis in Orange Cats
A vet said that our orange kitty might have mild gingivitis, but someone else said that it's totally normal for orange cats to have a little reddish line (maybe pink) in their gums. The vet seemed a little shifty, and all the research I'm finding is about serious cases... if Joey (kitty) has it, it's mild, and I can't find anything about this or about things specific to orange kittys (American short-hair -color orange & white... though mostly orange) Anyone have any ideas on this? The cat is actually my 79 year old mom's - she just got him after her other cat died and now she's worried he's sick and will die also and so I'm trying to calm her while also allowing her to keep this little kitty who is AWESOME! Please help!!!!!!!!!
