    How are dog owners in your neighborhood?

    Boxers across the street roam. The younger one now has a cheapo electric fence collar he runs out of occasionally( the one you plug in the house and is circular) after getting tangled in our electric fence. New neighbors have dogs but are far away I don't know what they are. I do know they...

    "Lifers" in No-Kill shelters.

    I don't know why a human aggressive dog can not be put down. It's a liability for the rescue and can waste years of resources. Some have multiple dogs like this. One dog that has some issues? Fine. But drives me nuts. I hate when no kill is literally taken as far as it can go. Seems so...

    How long would your dog survive a zombie apocalypse?

    Blitz would last till the end. He would probably take up with the local coyotes and take over the world and overthrow the zombies somehow. New world order of the dog. Everyone else would be eaten first day. There is a litte try there in the corgi brain. But the Dobe brain has to much "oh...

    How has your Dog changed in the last year?

    Truman will poop outside in the cold. My prayers were answered and that's all I asked for!!! I swear last winter was miserable. Seriously though! Other than that he had been pretty mellow from a pup. He has grown up some. More patient as far as his stays and great recall.

    Need advice: I think my doctor violated HIPAA laws

    The debt collection agency would just call and do the same thing and he would get a fifth of the money. Drs don't really make out. They pay out the rear for malpractice ins. You sign saying they can collect a debt or they wouldn't treat you. I'd pay him.

    truck repair question

    Try to find someone local that has a reliable shop. I know one here that I would trust with anyone. Gives free quotes and am comfortable sending anyone to. Wish you lived closer. But talk to people and see who they suggest and tell you to stay away from. Tow truck driver is a good start...

    Intact males + females

    My last guy was not the most chattery and didn't react that much. I probably would have just fixed him if he went off his food and sat and chattered like I hear of some dogs doing. He was always out for the most part and our female would get crated when someone else could to be with her paying...

    I feel like work and college have overtaken my life! Horses are probably #1 (why we have the farm, tractor, spend so much money, what we base most our vacations on etc) dogs follow close behind. Four wheeling but haven't had much time to go recently. Nice to go hop on and ride...

    The one that got away?

    I fostered a havaneese, mr fluffy pants, we should have kept. He was so sweet. Loved my husband(they all do, jerks lol). But he was so easy to place I couldn't justify it. There was a orange- so vibrantly colored no other way to describe it I swear! What I think was a border collie...

    What made you get into dogs?

    I try to explain it to people and they don't get it lol! I hung out with my dogs all day! I still remember these grand adventures we went on. When we moved they made it into a giant horse/walking metro park so I can and have gone back and it's nice. But my dogs were my baby sitters I swear...

    What made you get into dogs?

    My parents bred labs when I was young and they were my siblings and best buddies. Kept me out of trouble! We lived in the middle of a couple hundred acres and would go on long walks and it was the best childhood. I loved those dogs. Had many more dogs after the labs passed. All special. My...

    End Stage Dementia: Feeding Tubes

    No tube. If he gets it he could go on for much longer. And why??? He is a DNR. I just argued this with my family about my grandpa. He is not really there. Tube just prolongs it. Let the body die like it's trying. I have had patients so confused and combative try to pull out tubes. They...

    What does your family think of your dogs?

    My family are all dog people, maybe more than me! Cousin with border collies that works her dogs, another cousin and aunt that still foster where I quit for the most part. My aunt and uncle that host Christmas have five dogs I think and invite everyone to bring theirs. Mine are to unruly now...
