    Can my parents have major vibes for Rocky?

    My parents' little black terrier mix, Rocky, is very sick right now. He had a bout of diarrhea and vomiting that seemed to clear up, but he wouldn't eat. And he developed a couple bumps under his skin. My mom went home to check on the dogs at lunch and Rocky's side was all bloody like he'd...

    Suddenly fearful of the bed

    So I've had Norris about a year and six months now. He is probably 6 or 7 years old. We've worked through most of his fear issues with random objects.

    Need Advice

    So there's a guy at work. We're pretty good friends now. I've been there for him through some bad times. Over a year ago, I left him a note in his backpack asking him out, and he didn't say anything about it for several days, but ended up telling me that he was "done with relationships" (he had...

    Play behavior at the dog park

    So Norris is obnoxious when he plays. He barks and makes growly rooorrrrooorrr sounds and generally makes an annoyance of himself. I always have to explain to people who are looking at me askance that I PROMISE my dog isn't being aggressive, he just talks when he plays! None of the other dogs...

    What is wrong with my dog???

    Norris is being really weird tonight. He is drinking large amounts of water, and then of course two hours later I take him outside and he urinates copiously (no blood in the urine, just very watered down of course). I have a metal bowl that probably holds about two gallons of water, and he has...

    What to do with the dog that eats EVERYTHING

    I know I've posted about Norris' issue with eating garbage before. But now he's decided poop is yummy, and there is a lot of it because a lot of people don't pick up after their dogs. So now with poop, garbage and dirty ice on the menu, I am constantly jerking Norris away from anything he sniffs...
