    I would step back for a little and let them work it out, though I agree with keeping new kitty predominantly indoors for now.

    For the feeding, why do you think the nutritionally balanced spiel will fall on deaf ears? Would she be willing to slowly add kibble to the boiled chicken? Maybe get some sample packs from the local...

    You are being way too hard on yourself! The blame lies solely on the shoulders of the Pitt owner. You definitely need to report this to AC. For all you know there are current charges pending against...

    Sorry, but I'd take that over loosing parts of my face. We had an ACO end up having to shoot a Rottie that took her down after she pulled the dog off it's owner. She still bears the scars from that...

    Actually, one of the recommendations to get rid of roaches is to not leave out any standing water. They can go a long time without food, but not water. When we bought our current house it was divided...

    Exactly! Even confined to a crate a dog can remove stitches or open a glued incision.

    My DH is a general contractor(residential work only). He does not have a price list, but will give you a written estimate AFTER meeting with the customer and looking at what the job will entail. But...

    Even if they do for some, but not all it is still a slippery slope. So easy to judge sitting on the outside looking in. Did you take this dog home knowing the options?Was the dog seen by a vet that...

    Prior to adoption? With what $$. Say fundraising is approved, but the money isn't raised? Then what? Would you prefer the dog be euthanized instead of given a chance at finding a home that is willing...

    I also have a couch eater, he is not left unsupervised. When we are not home he is crated(which really is maybe 2-3 hours at a time once or twice a day). He doesn't gut the couch, but will quietly...

    I agree, and I work for our local animal control shelter. We have a $$ amount budgeted for veterinary expenses. There are just some things we can't do for the animals in the shelter due to the cost....

    What a transformation! You look amazing. I made similar changes a little over 8 years ago and while there's been rough parts I will never go back to what I was before. My favorite quote is, "Nothing...

    My daughters instructor is also the assistant BM, so when the BM is away she is the one the barn workers turn to. She lets everyone know her lesson schedule so they know when not to bother her. They...

    I would try a dog trap long before attempting a sedative, you don't know if the sedative will even work or if the dog will have a reaction. We have ACO's trained in chemical capture and that is an...
