    Train the puppy from day one that he's not allowed on the furniture. He can't jump up on the stove, is it any crueller to say he can't jump up on the couch? Humans go on the floor to play with...

    With all respect to the potential dififculty of selling the horse to a new party, and all respect to the equine ability to cripple themselves at the drop of a hat, I'd take the horse home just...

    Sounds like a mess, and a good reason to resist being pressured into panic mode. That whole "gotta pick the horse up right now or it dies!!!!" reaction

    The worst real movie? That endlessly manipulative Seabiscuit. I loved the actors, I loved the cinematography, I loved the story - and the movie was still terrible. The filmmakers didn't trust...

    But don't you guys realize that a leash is a sign that your dog is untrained? :rolleyes: Seriously, I've had people say that to me. I ask they leash their dog (for the record, I ask this because...

    Just an idea, but this might not be the best time to try to give Sophie a new friend or job, as much as you may want to give her something to cheer her up. With so much going on, and probably both...

    Climbing, and walking in sand, snow and water are all lower-stress but higher-effort exercises. If, for example, you can let the golden walk on the level ground while you encourage the little dog to...

    To add to the chorus - the alpha rolls are just a waste of time and possibly making the situation worse. To be a little different, I don't think the neutering is that important. Yes, ideally you'd...

    If she's youngish and strongly wants to wander, I think you're out of luck. Most dogs will only do what you want if a) they share that desire or b) you're actively watching them. A lot of what...

    Maybe something small and non-interactive (ie, caged) like rabbits or guinea pigs? Not quite a companion, but they would be some company and if she guards inanimate objects, she would probably adopt...

    You may feel that the value of 'teaching' people outweighs the fact that it's rude to offer unsolicited opinions on manners, but the point of manners is that they allow us to deal with each other...

    Different people have different standards of manners. There are, however, a few things that are largely agreed-upon as being rude. Correcting someone else's manners, unless you are their mother, is...

    I think Bluey said it perfectly, but to reply to the question - I have been to dog shows, though mostly for sporting and herding breeds, and I don't think I've ever stayed for groups, as that makes...

    I like Florida, probably because in all its flat, crowded glory it reminds me a lot of New Jersey. With bigger reptiles and fewer gun laws. I don't want to live there, but add me to the list of...

    I don't know if the horse was being harassed in this instance, as he presumably could have trotted off away from the fence and the kids, who as I read the OP were hanging over the fence and not...

    :dead: I always thought there was nothing worse than growing up in the surburbs as a frustrated horse-crazy kid, but I think that may be worse.

    My response was a bit tongue-in-cheek, because I'm aware that most people don't consider 15.1 to be big, but honestly, to me anything 16 hands or more isn't big, it's HUGE. Small is a pony, medium...

    We're getting sleet and rain. Lovely. Maybe some snow later, too. My heart goes out to the people being snowed heavily on. This is exactly the kind of weather that makes me go "Oh, hell, no!"...

    I had to be semi-satisfied with Breyers, pony rides and car rides in the country with my nose pressed to the car windows. My favorites were Man O'War, Halla and the old grey carthorse with the ribs...

    Oh, absolutely. You want a product which uses pseudoephedrine. The companies that make these products have new versions or formulas that subsitute phenylephrine, which is not controlled, and that's...
