    I agree - every dog that gets a good home is a win by my reckoning!

    I totally understand why people look for homes for their dogs on Kijiji/Craigslist, and you can usually tell from the wording if...
  4. Ramps for a dog with three good legs and one useless leg?

    We recently acquired a lovely young rescue dog, largish, and he's got one ok foreleg, but one is semi-useless. Apparently he was found having been hit by a car as a puppy, and subsequently received...

    Yes, you can do a lot with a mix of light disking, harrowing, plug-aerating and mowing. If you can keep going with a constant rotation of all of the above then you won't need to pull the horses and...
