    I don't think that's unusual depending on the breed; some breeds are not ready to go to permanent homes until they are old...and others may have reasons to be held longer. That's certainly a...

    When we had ours installed about 6 years ago it was $9/linear foot -- pounded posts with nonclimb fencing and an oak top rail, plus gates. So that would make your estimate pretty close. To do it...

    I'm sure it was specifically designed to be seen either way. If you work at it, you can make it switch on demand. I find that if you look at the foot/shadow and blink at the moment it could go...

    OK, I am really starting to wonder if the OP is changing the picture. ;)

    Sun is in my office again...dress is blue and black and I *cannot* trick myself into seeing white and gold.

    Interestingly that yesterday when I clicked the link it was clearly blue and black; and it was before I had heard all about the internet "buzz" so I had no idea why anyone would ask such an obvious...

    I started riding as an adult also, so congratulations on finally getting the chance to start! :)

    I really recommend taking a few trial lessons at a few places. Until you do, it's really...

    I would really try to speak to people in person or on the phone if at all possible. Breeders that have websites get emails all the time from people who want a puppy *now* and very often want to be...

    Can you be more specific in what you want? I can understand why your dog needs to be focused on you in agility, but not sure what you want on a walk. Do you mean when you want to get his attention...

    I guess this depends on where you live and where you buy it; around here a bale of straw sells for twice the price as a bale of hay or a bale of shavings. I can't imagine bedding with straw because...

    Vomiting is not typically a symptom of influenza. Perhaps it is of the "stomach flu" which isn't really "the flu" (influenza).

    LOL. I must be one of those "older people" at 45. Most "everyone else" I know still uses a TV on a regular basis. That darn cable bill....gotta get our money's worth, you know.

    But, back to the...

    I actually doubt there are any farms that do this unless when bringing in a new horse.

    But, in defense of the OP - if you've never been in charge of stall cleaning, it might seem like disinfecting...

    Sorry, but that is not very gross compared to the barefoot stepping on the dead bloated rat on the previous page. :) It's just dead. And thawing. Not rotting. ;)

    We have a log cabin.

    LOVE: a giant mudroom....probably 12x16 or bigger (never measured it)....big enough for coats, boots, recycling bins, and a "dog wash" station so they don't track in the mud...

    I use wood pellet bedding, so I dig down to find the wet spots, remove them as fully as possible (yes, sometimes with a shovel, but if properly bedded a manure fork does the job), and flip and...

    Here's my advice (and take it if you want).

    From what we can tell (and that is only from your first post), you've just decided to buy a purebred puppy. And not two days later, you're totally...

    Don't worry about what breeders might say to each other; you have every right to talk to multiple breeders - and 99.99% of them would agree that you *should* (except when they are expecting puppies)...

    I agree. If she is not overweight, why not feed her a bit more? It makes sense that active dogs will eat more than the "recommended" amount for their size/breed than a more sedentary dog.

    The flu - how long is it contagious?

    Hoping someone has some experience with this as I forgot to ask at the doctor's office.

    Dh came home from a trip and infected us all - he had strep and probably the flu as well, since DD#1 and I...

    This really depends on the breeder - and all breeders have different feelings about everything...what constitutes a good home, what process they will use to select puppies, etc.
