So have you heard that we have joined the ranks of the three doodles bunch? Moses came home 2 weeks ago now. He is 14 weeks old today. :-) On most things, he is coming along quickly and smoothly... but this housebreaking thing is hard! He understands that peeing and pooping SHOULD be outside. When he's outside, he... more
My Ozzie boy is 13 tomorrow! Where have the years gone? He's having a lazy birthday because of a tweak in his right hind leg. Hiking is out of the picture for a week or so. We'll go out to eat....maybe he'll get his favorite grilled fish. His birthday present was a series of massages from canine physical therapist!!... more

The vet found... more

I have only ever used pumpkin to firm stool. I've only ever asked and researched how to get a firm stool, so this is all new to me. I'd like to stay away from a... more
according to the surgeon. But I wasn't prepared...at all! His butt looks like a lawnmower was involved. It is so swollen and bruised. He was doing well and leaving it alone, but I just caught him licking at it, so the cone is back on. (Bad momma!) My dogs have never had surgery so I didn't realize. OMG. Poor, poor... more
