    Any discussion of serious attacks has to take breed into account. Otherwise, it's just playing make-believe. There are dog attacks that you simply have little chance of stopping alone, without...

    I have a lot of sympathy for this POV. It's crossed my mind more than a few times while reading stories of dog rescue groups. I'm sure many of them have their heart in the right place, but there is...

    It's not typical or normal or non-aggressive for a 150lb dog to kill a 10lb dog. It's not an accident when it happens, it's not because the big dog mistook the little dog for a squeaky toy, a...

    Possibly not the answer to the OP, but I think people sometimes throw an ad up on CL on a whim, because it's so easy, and then aren't prepared to follow through.

    You have a man with a giant and notoriously aggressive breed who is pursuing a fantasy of training that involves assessing his 5-month-old dog (of a giant breed, one which matures slowly) as being at...

    A hamburger, a bag of ice, some guns...

    Sorry, feeling silly. I think she got the big ticket item already :) You could order her a flag that was flown over the capitol, assuming they still do...

    One story is that suits were literally invented to hide the typical flaws of the male human body of the Victorian upper classes - flabby limbs, big belly - and enhance those things we think of as...

    I will write a book because half my life is about canine arthritis management :)

    I tried adequan injections last year, and it seemed to help a bit - the very slight morning limp vanished. We...

    Good luck! Obviously, you wouldn't have chosen to breed her but there are way worse oops litters out there than poorly conformed labs. At least the mother seems to have a nice disposition and the...

    Great! Good luck with him, it's tough getting old.

    This. It is a bit nuts to start seeing, say, Saluki in a typical mixed breed of unknown heritage. Just because one of those $80 DNA test would claim there was Cesky Terrier in him doesn't mean we...

    Good luck! Nobody wants to hear "tumor" but skin tumors can be benign. In my experience (3 dogs, 2 malignant cancers, current dog has had 2 benign tumors removed) the aspirate is generally...

    Point one. There are no rules. Thank you, Walmart. I am sincere; as a slob, it is nice to be able to sometimes just slob my way out of the house and slob over to the store while reassuring myself...

    Ow. Hate to say it because it's such a nasty taste, but prednisone is magic for itching.
  17. How does your town/city/etc. handle animal control?

    For maybe 10 years, my small town has contracted out its animal control services to a company that is horrible to deal with, unresponsive and rude. I'm not alone in my experiences; I was reading the...

    Jingles. I hope you can get an answer, and I really hope your dog turns around. All my sympathy.

    I went through a phase of adoring it around Season 3, got a little less into it after a while (specifically, when that irritating actor who played the coroner was hired; can't stand that actor and...

    I'd guess a genuine mutt with terrier and collie shepherd in the background, and something smaller and more fine-boned than either of those. Very funny terrier face, very non-terrier movement (based...

    I closed up the feeding station for a month last summer when the grackles and starlings became hyper-aggressive. The last straw was seeing a grackle attack and kill a sparrow. I figured they'd become...

    White Snake.... OP, maybe they blew off a vital body part with the first firework and got carted off to the ER?



    Another reason not to move to Utah.

    Yes. Not nearby, thank God. I could hear a whole slew of them around midnight but they were probably at least a few blocks away. I love my noisy a/c unit; as long as the fireworks aren't nearby, the...

    Well, the father seems to be guilty. I wonder about the mother, whether she's guilty and whether she'll even be arrested. It seems it would be much harder to prove anything against her - the...

    If the bloodwork is good and the cleaning is done with the safest methods (quick-clearing anesthesia, monitoring, etc.) the risk of something going wrong is probably very low. But you'll worry...
