    RxCate, hopefully this is helpful, since I'm on the Eastern Shore, too. When I bought my place (in 2009) I had inspections set up for the general house stuff and a separate inspection for the septic...

    I've used the Addiction freeze dried formulas before, and didn't have any issues with my crew (but they're a pretty hale and hearty bunch). Love the idea of the Orijen/Acana, but noticed we had some...

    If you decide to try again with the crate training, you can still use a box, just cut some holes in it for airflow, and nothing says that you have to cover ALL the sides of it, either. For my guys,...
