    If you recall Oprah's Book Club, most were the kind of popular book I almost always dislike. Middlebrow fiction, I do not like thee.

    OP, just go.* That's what I used to do when I was younger. It became a family story - oh, yeah, she always just calls when she gets there and says "Hey, guess where I am?" Some parents just can't...

    Love Actually. I HATED that movie so intensely and I was amazed when I walked out of the theatre and all the other women were crying and talking about how life-changing and wunnerful it was.

    My 16yo dog was doing okay until about half an hour ago, when someone nearby broke out the big fireworks. She got agitated until I sat with her a while and petted her. EVERYTHING in the fireworks...

    A 105lb Doberman imported from Europe, trained to be a 'service dog' by a guy who thinks it's good that a 'service dog' be 'protective.' Nothing could go wrong here.

    Last year, an imported...

    My sympathy to OP, who is facing a very painful moment in what should be a happy time. I don't see how keeping this specific dog in a small home with a newborn is realistic. I've no doubt it's...

    I applaud the idea, but think the ADA is going to have to be updated to actually work against the liars. The FL law doesn't address the real problem because it can't - ie, there is no way to easily...

    This is my least favorite time of year. Between the brutal heat/humidity, and the fireworks going off randomly on any given evening, the 6 weeks between June 15 and August 1 are just hellish. And...

    It sounds like she's sore enough that her previously normal exercise feels like a strain, and she doesn't want to strain herself. Which, considering she's a BC-type, probably means she's been...

    Considering the number of women who seem to acquire 'scary' breeds as a way to 'protect' themselves, I'm not surprised. Well, I'm surprised it's not a Cane Corso on the panties instead of a GSD, but...

    Disregard the color and then look at him. BCs come in various colors, and many dogs come in b/w. Imagine if he had a tan coat, or was all black.

    Personally, he looks too upright for a BC. The...

    Call animal control. They're not going to do anything, but it's nice to give them a heads up when you see this sort of thing, so they can have a "Oh, those people" history when the pit inevitably -...

    The so-called no-kill movement is the biggest lie in dogs. Which is saying something. No-kill sheltering doesn't save lives, it prolongs existence and in some cases has simply swapped out a humane...

    I did it when I first got one dog, not for housebreaking but to show her it was physically possible to be still. She would pace, pace, pace until I was about to lose my mind and finally tied her to...

    I'm surprised so many people are using collars with small dogs - not intended as a criticism, I just know so many people who use harnesses because the necks on the little guys are so small and...

    One thought - if you really consider her a sister, then it's not quite the same as a friend or even a Very Best Friend. A sister who is who's being a major long-term bitch is different from a friend...

    And now I want mini goats more than ever :) I know well the Tecnu and that stuff is amazing, really works. I think the advice not to go within 10 miles of it is good and I will try to coerce others...

    Advantixx is, I believe (computer going slow so not going to google, please check) is the one which some dogs, usually collie types, can be allergic to. I've had good luck with it and with...

    THIS. I had a vent directly above my computer and I felt like a senior citizen with arthritis by noon every day. Hands, wrist, hurt. Looked up one day, maintenance was poking around in the ceiling...

    I've never quite understood how they were supposed to work. Since dog breeds are hardly distinct species, they'd have to be comparing known bloodlines of various breeds. So if your dog didn't...

    1) Eat. This has become a problematic solution since developing a tricky stomach. To be fair to myself, I tend to forget to eat so some of the time I'm probably stressed in part because I haven't...

    My office space is cold until 3pm, then inexplicably turns so warm I end the day sweating. The windows face east, so it's not the sun. I suspect the a/c kicks off after 3, so we'll slowly thaw...

    Anything longer than 6' is a prop. Flexis are the most common, but you do sometimes see people with really long leashes. The worst use of a pseudo-leash I've ever seen was the 20' lead attached to...

    Personally, I like bloodwork. It's minimally invasive, quick, gives the owner some peace of mind and the vet something to refer to if the pet comes back at 3am with a difficult-to-diagnose problem. ...
