Ahh I found a TIck
I came back from a walk last night and when sitting on my couch I looked down and there was a tick walking on my leg.... "Goose bumps!" Anyway, I figured I would put the word out that in San Francisco it seems like tick season. Remember to keep up with the flea and tick meds, I know I will....
Low Cost Decent Quality Food?
I'm sure this question has been asked about a million times, but I am looking for a dry food to feed my dog, Snoopy - a 7 year old old beagle We are currently feeding him, Natural Balance and although he seems to do alright on it, I am looking for a lower cost food that will produce similiar if not better results. (Snoopy tends to have softer poops on this food) I know all about the junk that is in foods such as Purina, Iams etc..and would love to be able to feed him super quality food such as Innova etc. however, at this time in my life it is just not cost effective.
Does anyone have any suggestions besides telling me I am a bad doggie parent, by not buying top shelf premium food? I have heard about a brand of kibble that is sold at Walmart called Maxximum Nutrition that has received a 3 star rating on the Dog Food Analysis website, is this a decent food to feed them for the time being, at least until we are more settled?
Thanks for any input you may have!
hot & cold nose
I have a 2 year old dog, (mix, vet guessed pit and lab??) am retired on a limited income, so don't go to the vet unless nesessary for Noels health, Ever since I got her (15 months ago, she is about 2 years old now) her nose constantly goes from cold and damp as it should be to worn and dry, back and forth, back and forth, maybe lasting from 1 to 3 days each. She seems to be ok, is this a couse for concern?? Can someone let me know.
Dog with barking problem
Bottom line, my boy Snoopy is a barker. He is always barking and at times it drives me crazy. I know its his way oif talking to me and letting me know he is there, but sometimes it can be a bit much to handle. Can anyone share some advice about how I can let him know that barking is something thats not always a good thing?
NCAA Basketball Tournament with my Dog
Oh boy, today is the day when I sit around and watch basketball with my boy Bobo. I am rooting for the Boston College, but part Bobo thinks they dont have a chance. He is more of a fan of just watching any team on TV. Does anyone else have a dog that watches loves to watch TV? If so, whats their favorite show?

Wee Wee Pads
I have a two year old German Shepherd he came home when he was 8 or 12 wks old, my other dog is small and deaf and uses a Wee Wee Pad so of course when Zach was little it was okay but now he is two and still uses the Wee Wee Pad when he is inside the house with us. The problem is of course that he is too big for the Wee Wee Pads. How can I break him of this habit when the little dog has to use it. My home is not big enough for me to put the pad in another area for the other dog. When he is loose in my enclosed back patio with the other dog I lay down a Wee Wee Pad and he will go to it.
AAARRGG! The Dog Whisperer!!!
Just a quick question... Will your dog watch the 'Dog Whisperer' with you? I watch it strictly for entertainment purposes, and Digger will bark and growl at the TV. It is the same for 'It's Me Or The Dog'... Just wondering if others have this "problem". I think it might be the dogs on the shows.
What breed 4 me?
I had a dog as a child - but it was just a dog - in the yard. I've never had a close attachment to a dog. I LOVE to watch the dog shows. I want to WANT a dog. I want to not be afraid of a dog. I want to be able to touch a dog without it jumping on me or licking me in the face. I want an outside guard dog that would also be a loving companion on the deck or porch. I have grandchildren that the dog would need to love. They would certainly love it - as they have an inside shitzhu (sp?). I work outside of the home and I'm usually gone for 9-12 hours per day. However, my husband is in and out. We have a pond. Any ideas? Thanks!
