  1. I've seen that stuff on tv and it looked like a total scam to me. Also, what I didn't get is why they had people spraying this stuff all over supposed "urine" on toilets and floors and such instead of just cleaning it off. "Oh, there's pee all over my toilet. I can't be bothered getting it off; I'll just spray over it!" Do people really do this?? :o That kind of advertising pretty much convinced me that it was a scam. I'm sorry you got taken, BM, but I'm kinda glad to hear some feedback on it. :oops:
  2. My doggers won the toy lottery this year. Thanks to the generosity of my Secret Santa, and then the generosity of an even more secretive Santa, my dogs are set. I'm just going to pass the goodies around on Christmas day. Hey, they don't know that *I* didn't buy them! :oops:
  3. What creative use of words you have there! Am I a bad person for admitting that I giggled out loud at the image of you threatening to stab someone in the eyes with your grilling fork? :oops: Perhaps it is time for Snoopy to disappear into the hands of a more responsible owner (or group). :o
  4. Most of my dogs love people, nearly all people. PJ (Toy Poodle) is probably the absolute most friendly, people lovin' dog we have. Tucker is a typical friendly Lab who adores people which is what made him perfect as a therapy dog. Peaches the Dobe is the least menacing, most friendly attention ho you could imagine in a dog. Peanut (other Toy Poodle) really likes people, doesn't care much for strange dogs. Perry and Pauly (Standard Poodles) LOVE people. Perry loves people onsite, completely and unconditionally. He'll greet you as if you are a long lost friend that he has
  5. Court, really keep an eye on that sore. Cats are known to get abscesses, especially from things like bite wounds. You'll just want to really pay attention to it. Sorry Ford had to learn the hard way.
  6. It doesn't seem like a year. I'm so sorry you're feeling down. It has been a really rough year for you. :(
  7. You know those egg crate type of mattress pads? You can cut those to whatever size you need and then make a really simple cover for it... think of a glorified pillowcase with one open end. You can either leave the end open, or use velcro fasteners (I don't bother trying to do zippers... too much trouble). It really only takes a few minutes to make, and it's simple as falling off a log. We like to cut those pads to size and then double or even triple them over so that they're really thick and plush. Another thought is to see if you can find some old furniture that still has halfway decent
  8. I reckon you really do need to start again. In my own experience, whenever you've had aggression issues with dogs, you have to constantly be on your toes. I don't think dog aggressive dogs are really ever cured as much as they are controlled, you know? If you stay on your toes, you can usually see the signs of trouble brewing (posturing, hackling, whatever body language) before it ever reaches boiling point. Good luck starting over. If you were able to do it before, you should be able to do it again. Only this time, don't let your guard down. :wink:
  9. [img]http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c360/HFeathers/Graphics/frustratedlady.jpg[/img] No, really, I'm fine, but thanks for the offer. :wink:
  10. With reluctant to pee dogs we've dealt with (mostly when they're new, or in one case, a paraplegic dog that sometimes didn't know he was full), I'd go outside with them and massage their bladder areas. I don't know if it helped or not, but my neighbors sure thought I was crazy... standing behind my dog, massaging "that" area vigorously, smiling and waving with the other hand at them at the same time... :oops: Anyway, for dogs that I worry have gone too long, I will massage their bladder area to encourage urination. I tend to worry that they are setting themselves up for infection if they
  11. This guy was boarding at our clinic and I thought of you. He's such a ham, a clown and a real love. I took 382948267203846 pictures, but he is in constant motion, so everything else was a blur. I could see me falling in love with one of these. Anyway, just a share. :) [img]http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c360/HFeathers/Bulldogboarder.jpg[/img]
  12. [quote name='drjeffrock']I dont get it. I only read a few posts, so correct me if I am wrong. You guys are advocating taking aggressive dogs to Petco, as long as they are on-leash and "under control?" Sorry but around here you cannot just assume that Muffin's owner is going to ask "Hi, is your dog aggressive. Can we come over to say hi?" What ends up happening is that Muffin's owner ends up checking out a new super-duper dog toy while Muffin rounds the corner on her Flexi-leash and walks right up to a dog-aggressive dog without her owner even knowing what here dog is doing.

  13. [quote name='Oscar The Grouch']And yeah, ordinairly, while cautious, I typically dont just out right ask. I think the owner bears some responsibility to protect other dogs from their own dog also given that petsmart is somewhere where you EXPECT to see other dogs.[/quote] Other than keeping the dog under control, leashed at their side, what else should they do to protect other dogs? I expect to see other dogs in PetWhatever, but I do not expect anyone to just let their dog approach mine. I'm responsible for keeping my dog under control, as anyone is with theirs, no matter how friendly th
