    IMO, I see nothing to make me say absolutely no way she should foster. It's a learning experience with every dog. The good thing is the ones you don't really connect with can go on to be adopted and...

    I would step back for a little and let them work it out, though I agree with keeping new kitty predominantly indoors for now.

    I have one male cat that absolutely beats the sh!t out of my older...

    For the feeding, why do you think the nutritionally balanced spiel will fall on deaf ears? Would she be willing to slowly add kibble to the boiled chicken? Maybe get some sample packs from the local...

    Currently have 2 dogs. One red merle mini Aussie(she's 3) and a year old Heinz 57 type we adopted this past spring. I take the mutt to the barn, but have to leave the Aussie at home. If she is not...

    You are being way too hard on yourself! The blame lies solely on the shoulders of the Pitt owner. You definitely need to report this to AC. For all you know there are current charges pending against...

    Sorry, but I'd take that over loosing parts of my face. We had an ACO end up having to shoot a Rottie that took her down after she pulled the dog off it's owner. She still bears the scars from that...

    Actually, one of the recommendations to get rid of roaches is to not leave out any standing water. They can go a long time without food, but not water. When we bought our current house it was divided...

    Exactly! Even confined to a crate a dog can remove stitches or open a glued incision.

    Exactly! I had to handle a very large(probably close to 100 pound) and very scared Golden Retriever today. Numerous other coworkers had been unable to get near him and were worried he would snap out...

    Even if they do for some, but not all it is still a slippery slope. So easy to judge sitting on the outside looking in. Did you take this dog home knowing the options?Was the dog seen by a vet that...

    Prior to adoption? With what $$. Say fundraising is approved, but the money isn't raised? Then what? Would you prefer the dog be euthanized instead of given a chance at finding a home that is willing...

    I also have a couch eater, he is not left unsupervised. When we are not home he is crated(which really is maybe 2-3 hours at a time once or twice a day). He doesn't gut the couch, but will quietly...

    My daughters instructor is also the assistant BM, so when the BM is away she is the one the barn workers turn to. She lets everyone know her lesson schedule so they know when not to bother her. They...

    We adopted a mini Aussie 2 years ago this Dec. She was dumped on the steps of the Humane Society the day after Christmas in a dirty crate. At the time we were told she was a 10-12 week old pup. Right...

    I would try a dog trap long before attempting a sedative, you don't know if the sedative will even work or if the dog will have a reaction. We have ACO's trained in chemical capture and that is an...

    We take our dogs to the beach often during the off season and it is one of the few areas around here where dogs are permitted off leash. I do not take mine off leash, a young Aussie with ADHD makes...

    So my 11 yr old DD had her first "real" fall today. Of course it had to be off the biggest beast in the barn(17.2hh)! Trying to convince her it's something to brag about to the rest of the barn...

    Our local SPCA has a low cost clinic that offers treatment for heartworms. Usually runs in the $400-$600 price range from start to finish. It never hurts to get a second opinion.
