    I'll draw my line when my dog doesn't fight. She's 17 and we have episodes of High Drama when something goes south with her health and we both fight like hell to keep her going, and periods of...

    Hugs. I'm so sorry. You were her owners, you were the ones who had the right to make that decision. Whatever you did was the right thing.

    My dog celebrated our first Christmas together by ripping one dewclaw in half. Good times, fun cleaning bloodstains off the carpet on Christmas Eve. On the other hand, she also managed to half...

    Could you get a local station or newspaper to do a story? The more coverage the better. There was a similar story in my area last year, a recently rescued dog bolted and vanished. They recovered...

    If you were forceful and evil, you could turn the tables on crazy friend by adopting the worst, most expensive, time-consuming, train-wreck dog she 'shares' - then foisting it off on her. Of course,...

    I love this thread - this is exactly the kind of thing that happens to me when I try to interact with people... Sometimes you have to just charge ahead and pretend to yourself that you are just one...

    That is freaking adorable. And the best photo-bomb with the Sudden Appearance of Briard (I think?) in the foreground.

    For the incontinence, have you tried medication? My 17yo dog has been on Proin for a couple of years, and that has really helped her. She started on a smallish dose and after a year or so that...

    My sympathy. I have a 17yo dog who had a seizure last week, and that was the most frightening thing I've ever had happen - it came out of the blue, and I thought she'd died when she went limp. I'm...

    Jesus. I assumed from the header that this was the Piper case. The rescue community is cutting its own throat by not addressing these cases publicly and with maximum vehemence against this sort of...

    I think honesty is the best approach here. People should be told a dog is being trained for bite work when you first look into their class/facility/etc. Ethically, it allows them to know important...

    If I had to do it again I would:
    A) blow up local social media - the FB page of the dog park, the park, the town, etc., FB groups, local craigslist, twitter, whatever.
    B) call the local newspaper...

    I'm not telling OP to assume the rescue is a scam, I'm suggesting she seek some evidence they're legitimate. Scam rescues and fake rescues and breeders posing as rescues are all out there. Any...

    Old dog vestibular? My dog had an episode about 3 years ago, was out for her morning walk and just went down, couldn't get up, went from being a little off to being absolutely unable to walk, would...

    My dog was on a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement for several years, before her arthritis cropped up and for a while after. I stopped in part because of how the evidence has been going on the...

    The #1 thing I'd want to know in this situation is how a litter of non-pit bull puppies ended up with them. Not to be rude to the rescue group, but there are a lot of flippers out there who are...

    I have a yard, but the fence is not 110%, so I used to use a check cord - the very light, very long lines they use to train gundogs (Petsmart used to sell these) - to let Dog run full tilt without...

    While it's designed for dogs with mobility issues, the Help 'Em Up Harness is supposed to be okay to leave on. Their blurb:

    What makes this dog harness truly unique is it’s designed to stay on...
  20. Soundproofing a room? aka ideas for making a dog quiet place for 4th of July

    Dog is ancient, dog had seizure last week, dog is currently being coddled like a Ming vase. And oh, right, Independence Day. Huzzah.

    Any ideas? I have window a/c so at least the windows won't...

    You may be right, if only because animal control and police are often indifferent to the dangers of violent dogs. It's funny, though, this kind of wilfully blind, cold response to the OP's concern...

    I know not all shelter dogs have issues. I have one glaring at me right now because I've been on the computer too long. Her worst issue to date has been making cranky faces and barking when she's...

    It's becoming quite the interesting question, where do you get a dog now? I've always gotten adults from shelters, but the last adoption was prior to the explosion of no-kill and rescue, and now...

    Amputation for arthritic knee?

    I came across the story of one of the Vick pit bulls having a leg amputated recently. It had an ACL surgery back when it was with Best Friends, arthritis eventually developed in the joint, and the...
