    another UTI

    Bella is starting another round of anti biotics for a UTI in a month. all of this started a week or so after changing foods, but my vet says that is just a coincidence. I am not convinced. Does anyone give cranberry additives to their babies and could it be the food??? She eats Nutro...

    Just a picture

    someone posted a picture on facebook a couple of days ago of two boxers, one male, beautiful flashy and a female, fawn, a little older with a white face... They looked way too much like Sandy and Napoleon... I was useless for the rest of the day. I couldn't do anything but cry... I still miss...

    For some reason, Bella has started growling at other dogs. She has been fine, except at the dog park, but today, she growled at a dog about twice her size at Petsmart. I was so embarrassed. We have socialized her well, or at least, I thought we had.. Any ideas what could cause this reaction.

    kiss, kiss, kisss....

    My Bella LOVES my two year old granddaughter, maybe a little too much. She is gentle with her, and plays well, but, she wants to kiss her in the face constantly. We of course, tell her no and pull her away, but she goes right back. Does anyone know how to teach her not to do this.

    excessive vomiting

    My poor Bella, she just can't seem to keep food in her tummy. She is so skinny, it just breaks my heart. Monday, the vet did a series of barium x-rays to see if something is stuck in her system, nothing really significant. He is sending them to Auburn for a second opinion, apparently there is...

    My sweet boy

    It has now been a year since we said goodbye to my sweet Napoleon, I still tear up everytime I see a picture or someone says his name. He was so needy all the time with his allergies. I hope he and Sandy are together and playing at the rainbow bridge. RIP my Little Boy Dog.

    Bella is on a low fat diet because of pancreatitus and is doing very well. Except for the fact that she is so skinny. She eats well and has not been sick. Even my vet has made a comment about her being so thin. Does anyone know what I can feed her to gain weight? The problem is that it...

    My Bella is now 18 months old and all of a sudden, she can not hear or behave. She has also started being distructive and jumping on my kitchen counters. She has always been a digger, but never chewed furniture or anything else in the house. I do remember Napoleon going through this, but...
