    conformation with Atlas

    Hi everyone! I am interested in doing confirmation with Atlas. He is such a beautiful reverse brindle. We did get his ears cropped and it looks wonderful on him! I'll post pictures as soon as I can. He is almost 1 year old (Nov 11) and I'm wondering where would I begin? I haven't been here...

    marking his area?

    Buster is almost a year old (Nov 11 is his birthday) and is still in tact (we are wanting to health test and show him). He never began "marking" until one day a friend brought their dog over, and he marked our sofa. I immediately washed the area on the sofa very well, but since then, Buster...

    deer antlers

    I know this topic has been discussed before, but haven't seen an answer to my question. Is it possible to have antlers too long to give to the dogs for a chewie? Mike has antlers that are pretty old. Over 10 years old. Never treated with anything, other than dust LOL. Would these be ok to...

    Hamburger/too old?

    I know we can give freezer burnt meat to the dogs. A lady I work for has given me about 15# of hamburger dated 6/07. It is wrapped in freezer paper and has never been thawed/refrozen. It has been in her freezer all these years. Is it safe to give to the dogs (or at least the ones who can...

    coughing

    Ok, Atlas is almost 4 months old, and not sure what is going on with him. He has had problems with runny poo (that's in the raw forum), has a tiny bit of mange (on intervectin sp?) for that as well as upping his salmon oil and vit. E. On Sat at 4am, I got woken up to him coughing really bad. For...

    runny poo

    I have a puppy (got 2 of them now, brothers) who is almost 4 months old. I have had him on raw since early puppyhood. He was doing great on it, using chicken as my main protein with a bit of pork necks as RMB. His poo looked great. Then one day I came home, and he had the runs. It continually...

    cat food?

    If this is in the wrong spot, please move it. Thank you. I have a friend who owns quite a few cats. Her vet (same as mine) has put her one cat on Science Diet. Not sure what exactly is wrong with him. I just shudder when I hear people saying they are on that. Is there a site like dog food...

    Not all cats are nice, Bailey

    Bailey and Tyson were outside playing the other evening (around dusk) with their daddy. All of a sudden, I hear Mike yelling at the top of his lungs, "Bailey, NO!!!" I went to the back door, opened it up and did my Bailey, come command. She come running full tilt from the other side of the yard...

    boxers/what type of vehicle

    Please move this if it is in the wrong forum. Thank you We are in the process of getting new vehicles. I want to get something that is "boxer friendly" but not sure what kind to get. It wouldn't be a brand new one for sure. I am thinking something manufactured within the last 5 or so...

    25# of liver, help!!!!

    Ok, need some advice/help somewhat here. I went to the local slaughter house and asked for 25-30# of dog scraps. I got home, took over a day to thaw, and it is ALL LIVER!!!! The smallest amounts of liver alone give them horrible poops. I gave Tyson a small bit last night when I was bagging it up...

    flea questions again

    Ok, I know this has been brought up more than countless times, but I need help/suggestions. My problem is with Bailey. She is like a huge flea magnet. She is being fed completely raw, not sure if that is relevant. I am using frontline plus, have sprayed our yard with flea control stuff, and...

    Tyson's slide ride

    We went to a reunion over the weekend. This is how Tyson entertained the kids. He did this last year as well, and of course Bailey had to do it also. We didn't get a video of her. The video was taken after about 4 times down the slide. No doggies were hurt in the making of this video...

    A few questions

    Hi guys. I have a few questions for my experts LOL. I had taken Bailey and Tyson off raw for about a month. It didn't seem to agree with Bailey. Her eye goo got really bad, scratching was getting worse, and her belly and ears were pink. After a month on Nat. Balance LID, I want to put her on...

    last words

    Ok, I love my Bailey dearly. But when she starts barking to let me know something is going on, I am training her to stop when I say "enough." Every time I do this, she ALWAYS has to put in a tiny woof. If I say enough again she will do it again. She always wants the last word!! I don't know...

    trim the fat?

    I went through all the meat the butcher gave me. I cut it all up, but was wondering as I did it, should I trim most of the fat off of it? It was beef. It did have a lot of fat on it, and some tendons, which I kept on it. Just wondering if I did something I shouldn't have. They absolutely...

    coco mulch warning

    A friend sent this to me via email. I wanted to pass it along to you all also. If it's in the wrong spot, please move it for me. Make sure you go to the Snopes link for a balanced report on this threat which Snopes reports as "Partly true". It is certainly worth being aware of...

    SATZ Training

    Has anyone ever heard of this type of training? If so, how good is it? I was in my yahoo group, and someone said about doing it and having great results. Any thoughts or experience?

    my new favorite butcher

    I called my local slaughter house today and ordered 20# of "dog food scraps" for the dogs (and I use that term loosely LOL). I was told last week that it is either .80 or .88 cents per pound. When I went to pick it up, the counter girl couldn't even hardly pick up the box. The butcher told me...

    yeast infetion

    I have a question. I know in we humans, that if we eat at least 2 teaspoons of coconut oil daily, it is lethal to yeast infections. Would this also hold true for canines? I personally have used coconut oil for quite a while and no longer suffer from yeast infections. If it works for dogs as...
