    A saloon dog might not care about people coming and going, because he sees them all day long. Same with dogs - those swinging saloon doors wouldn't keep town dogs out. And in a small western town,...

    Well, she's home. 3 days at the vet, Xrays, the surgery, IV fluids, antibiotics, take-home meds, a week's worth of prescription canned food. Total - $2800. Gulp. But I can afford it. She'd better be...

    Not really. The day of, they called and told me she'd need surgery and asked if I wanted to go ahead. We agreed that if, when they got in there, it looked like she wouldn't make it that they'd put...

    I visited her tonight after work and was able to walk her outside. She's drinking on her own and they removed the IV fluids today. Tomorrow they'll try her on a little solid food, and if that goes...

    I just talked to the vet tech and she's happy and drinking on her own, although they're still giving IV fluids. I'm going to visit tonight after work.

    Your dog had the kind of life, and death, that we all want to have. Don't beat yourself up, don't have regrets. Be thankful that he lived and was loved.

    UPDATE: She made it through the night and is up wagging her tail this morning. The vet's office says she's doing great! I should be able to bring her home tomorrow.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. It's always so hard, chasing that illusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. But your dog would've paid the price for you trying to comfort yourself. Be at peace -...

    She came through the surgery okay and the vet says if she makes it through the night she's got a good chance. His gut instinct is that she'll make it, but he says no guarantees. And he said she's a...

    Last call to the vet was 2 hours into surgery. Annie was doing okay, she had a portion of her stomach removed and he was going to tack it. She was still in surgery and I haven't heard more. Vet was...

    Bloat - Annie's in surgery now

    This morning my doberman Annie (the dog from this thread who almost killed herself) had a bloated stomach and pale gums. I got her to the vet as soon as they opened, and it's bad news, Bloat. The...

    Do the parks not have security cameras? If it's a public park, I'd bet they do. You might call the Parks department and ask them about footage. Tell them the police are involved.

    Cleo says, "Menopause, schmenopause!"

    How many ribs do snakes have? And are the babies in the wild born knowing how to hunt? They're so tiny when they're born.

    And to bump my bump, last night I went into the front yard to water some rose bushes in front of the fence and saw a dead snake 3-4 ft long. This was perhaps 60' from where I found Spike, so maybe...

    Well, to bump this, I'm thinking maybe the dogs didn't do it. They caught a bunny in the yard today and literally tore it apart. As I said before, there was no sign of trauma to the cat at all, and...

    I have 6. 2 dobes, a dobe cross, a GSD, a standard poodle and a giant schnauzer mix. I really think I'm about 2 dogs over an optimum number for me, but I make it work.

    I just had a lump removed from my 12.5-yr-old standard poodle's elbow. Histopathology came back as a grade 3 soft tissue sarcoma. The recovery wasn't bad and my vet said he wouldn't recommend...

    My dogs killed one of my cats

    At least I'm assuming it was my dogs. The cat wasn't torn up, but I found him dead in the yard. Possibly a rattler, but I think that's wishful thinking that my sweet dogs couldn't do that to a cat...
