    hmm. Surely I'm wrong, but I don't recall people giving gifts to each other in the original x-mas story. After your god knocks up some poor girl she has a baby and wise men give gifts to the baby. No...

    don't "correct" him. Most (all?) dogs haven't the slightest idea what NO means, and yanking on the collar causes neck damage. Just don't reward him when he waves his feet around without being asked...

    well, if it helps, I have a dog that was mis-diagnosed with DM. The symptoms sure looked like it, and we all agreed it would be silly to pursue MRI, etc. They did do a genetic test and he tested...

    yeah, don't blame yourself. Most dogs thrive on fat- for example, sled dogs eat diets that are mostly fat. I used to feed one dog entire sticks of butter every day to put weight on him. No problem at...

    Bang? some kind of fall? A gunshot?
    if it was just a aneurysm bursting or something I'd expect silence?
    Agree the necropsy is a good idea.
    Sorry these things are never easy.

    Thanksgiving is a holiday everyone enjoys. No gifts, no pressure, no commercialization, no religions, no endless months of having it pounded into your head everywhere you go.

    I got an answer back from my pseudo-friend PETA supporter. She's firmly convinced the stolen, killed dog must have been neglected or abused somehow for PETA to step in. No answer as to why the dog...

    no, you just leave religion out of it. You don't ass-ume they are celebrating any holidays just because you are celebrating a religious holiday. You say "have a good day!" How hard is that? Not...

    It's like feeding any animal- you don't feed them to satisfy their appetite, you feed them to keep them at a good body condition. Check his body condition, feed him a set amount each day for a week,...

    you're wrong about that, it's extremely offensive. Non-Jews don't have any kind of Hannukah at all, and wishing them to have one of any kind is pushing a religion on them. Same with Christmas-...

    Be careful because a lot of the "wild" milkweed isn't milkweed. It's dogbane, a plant that looks a lot like milkweed but is poisonous to both monarchs and well, dogs obviously. Horses, too. And...
