    Adopted dog is biting.

    As some of you may know, we adopted a 1 year old Bichon about 2 months ago. We were told at the time of adoption that he may be fearfull of MALES from his previous experience.

    So.. as you know, we rescued a 10 month Bichon this past weekend. He weights 11lbs. We have our existing dog, an 8 month old Poodle Mix that weights 4lbs. When they are munching on their bones (both identical), there are times the Bichon feels like taking the Poodles boone from her.... and he...

    I finally got my rescue dog :)

    Yup I did - He is a 10 month old Bichon, was neglected and severely matted before rescued. He was supposedly neglected by a male which resulted in him being "shy or unsure" of men. He and I bonded really quick.... especially since I'm the one giving him the treats... but he really adores my wife...

    Fleas and steam cleaning?

    Anybody know if steam cleaning your carpet will get rid of fleas? I can't imagine fleas and their eggs surviving a steam cleaning.... not the heat alone but with the chemicals as well?

    ... getting spayed today! So nervous..

    After all my thoughts on breeding, waiting to get her fixed, and mixed opinions on getting her spayed, I have finally taken the leap and am having my dog spayed today.

    ..... Pit Bull pack mauls 2 dogs in OC

    I'm tired of hearing these mauling stories..... I think those who own pitts/rotts/etc... should have some kind of license or something showing they are capable of handling/training this breed. These stories are a direct result of irresponsible owners who don't extinguish the problem at...
