    Female starting 1st heat cycle

    The last female dog we had was intact most of her life. She never got pregnant. In addition to her vulva swelling, I noticed Molly def had a more pronounced wet dog like odor. There are things on both sides to be said for altering. I don't agree with pediatric spay/neuter. I think with...

    Ultra running

    Over winter while we were waiting for our pup, I decided that I needed to get serious about exercising for the first time in my adult life. I decided to try Couch to 5k and lo and behold, I developed a love of running. Now I haven't even run in an official 5k until so I have a looong way to...

    Craye reccomemdations?

    Any crate recommendations? Want to start gathering supplies for our new pup now before we get her so we don't have to fork over a huge chunk of change at once. Lemmy has a welded wire crate that's a hand me down from my in laws. The thing is well over 10 years old and I don't know where they...

    Wow ots been a while!

    It's been a minute since I've posted in here. Lemmy is 8 now, I can't believe it! He is starting to get a few white hairs under his chin and it makes me kinda sad. He has turned into an amazing dog. Goofy, friendly, energetic amd very smart. He is great with kids, he loves our 6 year old...

    Acana Feeding

    Acana is a great food. I fed the grain free formulations to Lemmy as a pup. We were on the Grasslands formula then just b/c my older lab can only tolerate fish or lamb. I fed him 1 cup divided into 3 meals. I think young puppies benefit from smaller, more frequent meals. As a 3 year old...

    Omg this poor doggie!

    I did and now I can't unsee it. All I could think of is the scene from Beerfest when Fink brings the monkey frogs into the bar, "Good god man, what have you done?"

    Looking for help.... allergies

    Ugh yeah sounds like you need a new vet. Like others have mentioned, the skin/blood testing is a one time deal. The test for antibiotics makes me wonder of she suspected a skin infection and wanted to do a culture and sensitivity on the skin lesions. Allergies suck. Lemmy has them but...

    The Cost of Poor Breeding

    I lucked out in that I have had relatively few issues with Lemmy. Then again, I got him from a pretty conscientious breeder. He will be 3 in Nov. He does have environmental and food allergies but that is taken care of by avoiding his food allergies and giving him benadryl during high pollen...

    Weight pulling

    I know this is a lil old but I am seriously thinking about WP for Lemmy. We don't really have and weight pulling classes around here, so we'd be doing it on our own. Do you reccomend starting with the chain first? We have some old tires from DHs Xterra in the basement we could use too.
