    http://bobtailboxers.com/the-cross-corgi-ex-boxer

    This site has some interesting information on that topic; it is the record of an attempt to use corgis to bring the natural bob-tail into boxers.

    I've been to several orthopedic vets this year for my younger dog with elbow dysplasia. Fish oil has been the one universal first recommendation. When I push for more ideas, Dasuquin has been...

    I'm an 'ask permission' person, and I have yet to be turned down when I've asked. I just say "I'm going to be in town for a dog event; would it be possible to stay with two dogs? They are...

    I never allow my dogs to "say hi" to other dogs when they are leashed (obviously assuming I can control the situation and it isn't an off leash dog running up). For the most part, I don't even...

    I believe I paid just under $200 for the last round of titres I had done (Distemper/Parvo). That was probably 4 years ago.

    Macouns, by a huge landslide. Those few grand weeks when they are in season, I practically live off them.

    Honeycrisps do nothing for me; even my horse won't eat them.

    After many years of riding my horse in a double jointed KK, because that was what I believed to be the "best bit", I happened to ride him in a single jointed bit one day because that was what was on...

    Would I limit mine? No. If my dog had a good chance of recovering to the point where they could live a comfortable stretch of time after, I would do anything in my power to treat my dog. But my...

    I would ask her if there was a reason. Maybe the dogs were stressing about her being in a different room if they are used to sleeping with you and your husband, or something else. If you've been...

    It did for my horse; I am 99% sure I just have it to him orally from a syringe without a needle, not injected into the tongue. It is a bit of a blur - maybe it was an IM injection. Pretty sure just...

    I have one dog who really would prefer that people don't touch him when he's out in public (oddly, in the house he's a snuggle bug even with strangers). I think he could turn into a bite risk if I...

    I used to teach puppy classes, and far more owner than not would report that their puppies had a bout of crazies around the same time every evening. I certainly don't think it is anything you are...

    Gusto came with the "best guess" of border/staffy at 6-ish weeks - his mother was known and was a BC. Both he and the littermate I still know grew up too lightly built for that cross; I expect the...

    It is only labeled for 3-10 months, but is apparently being used in older dogs as well, and they are hoping to expand the ages with further study from what I've read.

    I'd talk to the vet who...

    Meat meal is not a bad ingredient at all - it is essentially meat with the water removed, which makes it a more dense source of protein than even regular meat. Maybe you are thinking of meat...
