    Need advise on pet sitting

    A friend of ours is going away for a few days in December and we have offered to take his black lab, Bailey, while he is gone. Bailey and Megan have played together several times before so I don't think there will be much of an issue there. My issue is coming in because both dogs have...

    Getting up in the middle of the night

    Megan sleeps on our bed and just within the last few weeks has decided that about 1 am it is time to get up and go out to do her thing. Most nights she will get up again at least one other time and sometimes more. I thought maybe she was sick as we tried new can food but that doesn't appear to...

    My husband and I have been tossing around the idea of getting a pool. My curious does anyone here have a soft side pool? The ones that you take down and put up every year and are all rubber. If you do I would be interested in what you think of it. Do you like it or not? Have you had any...

    Anybody heard anything about a recall on dog food?

    This information is coming from my brother and I don't have enough of it to piece together anything. He said he heard on the news that some "major brand dog foods" were being recalled. I have checked out a few sites and haven't seen anything. Curious to see if anyone else heard any news on...

    Update on Megan's heart condition

    Just wanted to update you all on Megan's heart condition because it has been a while. Of course if something was really wrong, you would all be the first to know. The last EKG which was last month again came out normal. I was excited to hear the vet say that if the next couple of EKG's...

    When she is sleeping she has to touch someone.

    When Megan is asleep she has to be touching someone, she is a very cuddly dog. I told my husband this is a boxer trait and he said not to this extent. So humor me and him, anybody else have boxers out there how have to be lying practically on top of you when they fall asleep or sit by you? Is...

    Bad habits that are hard to break?

    I was reading through some past threads and came across several on jumping. Although we have been very lucky with Megan as far as destructive behavior etc we have yet to break her of jumping on people, although she is getting better. Which got me to thinking, anyone else out there have a...

    Our Classes Begin Tonight

    I remember those days of class. Megan would not sit still, didn't care about her treats and only wanted to play with the other dogs. I came home so many nights close to tears, I was so frustrated. However looking back on it today I wouldn't do it different, the classes helped both her and me...

    Back to the vet we go

    Not me I didn't do it

    Last night Megan went to bed. A little while later my husband went into the bedroom and yelled for me to come in. Megan was laying on the bed with stuffing hanging out of her mouth, stuffing wrapped around her foot and stuffing all over the floor. Looking at me like "What I didn't do it!!"...

    Fearful stage?

    Megan seems to be scared of her own shadow lately. At first I thought it was because we pulled up the rug to show the hardwood floor underneath. I said she needs time to adjust to the hardwood floor but it seems to be more than that. Every little noise makes her jump and "run for the hills."...

    She has discovered her voice

Today she barked at the little boy two yards over playing in the snow. I'm glad she is barking but how do I teach...

    Need help on a research paper.

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum to put this into but figured it was a safe start. My husband has to do a 20 minute persuasive speech on why you should not buy a puppy from a pet store. I know we all have our opinions on this subject but he needs some facts. He is looking to find...
