  1. How many times does Maya get loose with you home? Your dog sitter doesn't sound that good to me. If I were watching a dog I knew was an escape artist I wouldn't open the door without her on a leash or confined away from the door.
  2. I'm sorry to hear that. I'm sure she went peacefully knowing she was well loved.
  3. That really is too bad. :-( I wonder if they tried getting support from any better brands?
  4. That's terrible news. I'm so sorry about Gladis' prognosis. :-(
  5. Sounds good :-) I trust you Courtnek. Scott and I will send a check.
  6. Wow that sucks. It's not fair for him to take his anger out on you like that. :x Good luck when you do decide to talk to him.
  7. Call the police and ask how much barking is considered nuisence barking. One or two barks while he's outside shouldn't be a problem I don't think. You'll still have to continue with the training, but at least you might not have to be so paranoid about one or two random barks.
  8. Here is a link to all the places in Ohio that carry this type of crate: [url]http://www.midwesthomes4pets.com/script/store.asp[/url]
  9. How about this one? Model 99/99N [b]Size: 54 L x 37 W x 45 H"[/b] [img]http://www.midwesthomes4pets.com/Picture%20Page/99N-w2.jpg[/img] I found it at: [url]http://www.midwesthomes4pets.com/ProductPages/Concepts.asp[/url]
  10. I think what you're doing is fine. :) The door thing is really only something you need to do when you're trying to enforce strict order. This would be necessary with the "give an inch, take a mile" sort of dog. It sounds like Kat knows her place and can handle a little latitude. Same thing with the couch. As long as she gets off without a fuss, than it's obvious she knows her place and is fine with it. It sounds like you're doing a great job with her! :D
  11. How do you feel about what happened? You probably need to trust your instincts here. Do you think that there is a good chance (for whatever reason) this could happen again? Was there rough play involved, or was the motivation behind the bite serious? Deep down you probably know the answers. Once you figure out the motivation behind the bite you need to make some decisions. At the very least you need to tighten up training and start from square one with Star. No more special privileges.
  12. Being there to do a variety of things with your dog is the best way to bond I think.
  13. Why would we "calm down"? It's never going to be OK for her to do what she's planning. [quote name='tx2478']...i didnt see anything i could answer right off but instead of her going thru and reading some of the comments that might cause an argument if you want to post a group of questions i will ask her and answer them for her... [/quote] You're putting yourself in a very bad position here. Do you really want to support her actions? Let her be a big girl and deal with her own decisions.
  14. Wow. I can't belive you think dumping your dogs with strangers is a suitable arrangement for your move. With Cody's aggression issues it is a bite waiting to happen. Where are you getting all these Poms from anyway? Most rescues don't keep handing out dogs like that. I'm wondering if somone should be issuing a Do Not Adopt warning...
  15. aww that's awful! You were right to shoot the coon. I'm sure you miss Free an awful lot though. :-( Can you go visit her anytime you want?
  16. Good luck, I'm sure she'll be fine! :angel:
  17. Just try to keep them seperated. Your Grandpa is going through a lot besides dealing with dementia. You can no longer hold him responsible for his actions. :-(
  18. What do you do when he shows aggression to people?
  19. I think as long as you're willing to spend time with the dog when you are not at work, you'll be fine. A retired greyhound is a good idea. You could also check some rescues and look for older dogs. Perhaps a dog over the age of 7. The rescue would have a good idea of the dog's exercise requirements. Older dogs are usually harder to adopt out and deserve loving homes as well. :-) Good luck!
  20. She looks a lot like a yellow Buck. I'm guessing Lab/hound mix. Have you heard her bark?
  21. Mostly Buck pesters me or anybody else around for attention. God help the person who tries to lay on the floor! They will have a 50 pound dog laying 2 inches from their face trying desperately to get a belly rub! :lol:
  22. Do you guys know what happened over there? (maybe I'm not supposed to talk about this) I used to read a lot at PBF because there were such knowledgeable people that posted regularly. Now all the good posters are gone... Is there a reason for the mass exodus?
  23. Buck is on Wellness and I rotate between Fish and Sweet Potato and Chicken. Although lately he's been supplementing his diet with bunnies. :roll:
