    Problem!!!! Puppy and our pool!!

    I agree with Vela. Something must be fenced in....the pool or a separate area for the dogs to run. Even if he is taught how to swim.....he could have a hard time getting OUT of the pool no matter how good a swimmer he is. I hope things work out for you. I can't imagine how freaked you must...

    letting dog rome house...?

    I can't really remember exactly what age we let Porter stay out of his crate. We would leave him out for a little time, then more time, then even more time....and it really didn't take all that long until we trusted him out all day. He ate a plant once, and a book....maybe a flip flop but only...

    What color looks Smashing on your boxer?

    Porter looked great in red, but I loved him in this dark green collar I got for him. He used to curl up in a navy blue blanket....that looked nice on him too.

    Thanks for the ideas! Looks like it'll be the seatbelt that wins out as the airlines seem like they'll only take small dogs. can't say I blame 'em.....:(

    After reading the post by Beanieh today about her family losing their dog in a car accident I decided to ask a question about seatbelts. I'm not sure if this is the right forum for it but it does have to do with their health......if you need to shift this over I understand. I'm also going to...

    Please post weight and age of your dog

    Porter will be 3years old on December 27th.....and right now he's 80lbs. He's one solid (but kinda short) pup!! Don't tell him I said he was short!!! He swears the other male boxers are all on stilts!!!! LOL

    Scabs and missing hair on back?

    Hmmm.... could be mange starting up and your vet should not have brushed it off so easily. But it could be something else too. Porter has had a few spots on his rump that have been missing hair since he was younger then 8wks old. Hair just never grew back. Never spread either. The skin...

    family feud (long)

    You've made me smile, too!!! Sometimes a dog just has to say 'Enough!!'. Not a thing wrong with that...unless you are the dethroned Queen...but then I guess she'll get over it. ;) Thanks for sharing your story! I needed a smile tonight and the thought of 3 dogs hamming it up in a mud puddle...

    If you want to put stuff in his food, Olive oil is great. I normally put about a tablespoon in his dish when I put stuff in his food. Stir it up real good. :) It's great for his coat!! Makes it awfully shiny!! I don't use tuna but I have used chicken. If I'm grilling I'll do an extra...

    My Boxer Almost Died Yesterday (Warning about collars)

    Oh my God that's horrible, Paul!!!! I am so relieved to hear Drago's allright!! You must have been petrified. Wow just thinking about it makes me worry for all the dogs out there. How is Drago doing now?? What did the vet have to do and will there be any long term effects?? How horrible...

    If you're sure it's not something the vet should check out..... They just do this. I fell into this trap with Porter. Once they know that if they turn their nose up at their plain food that you'll give them tasty stuff in it....they'll wait a long time! Unless you do want to be creative...
