    Help!!!!! Ate tealight candles including the metal container

    Balboa ate two tealight candles (metal container and all). Should he be okay until I can get him to the vet in the morning. Someone told me that a dog's stomach acid would disolve metal. Is that true?

    Lost My Sweet Baby Girl

    It breaks my heart to have to post here. I helped Wallie to the bridge last Friday. She had gone days without eating anything (vet felt sure it was gastro lymphoma). She acted like she was hungry but would immediately spit out anything she tried to eat. Wouldn't even try to swallow. Thursday...

    Taste of the Wild Ethoxyquin Free?

    The feed store where I buy my dog food is now carrying TOTW. I have been using Wellness Core, but wanted something else to rotate with. After reading the info on Taste of the Wild Dog Food on DFA, I decided to e-mail the company and ask about the use of ethoxyquin in their food. Below is...

    New Merrick "Before Grain" Food

    Has anyone tried any of the new Merrick grain free formulas? I wonder if they will be six star foods. I am rotating with Merrick Wilderness Blend and Wellness Core right now. This might give me another option. The feed store I use carries Wellness on a regular basis and will special order...

    Need some vibes

    Well, Balboa has another bump. This time on the inside of one of his hind legs. It's about the size and shape of a pencil eraser. Hopefully, it is just another histiocytoma like the other ones he has had. Have an appointment with the vet tomorrow. Sure would appreciate some of those great BW...

    How old to leave Mama? Kinda long

    I have a feral cat that took up residence in my garage over the winter. Of course, my DS had to feed it so it has made itself at home. About 4 - 5 weeks ago she had 4 kittens. Had no idea it was a female. You couldn't get near her. The kittens are now eating and drinking on their own...

    Help: How many egg shells a week is safe

    I give Balboa (almost 2 years old), a raw egg once or twice a week. I know that you can give them too many eggs and it will have a reverse effect. My question is: Is there a limit on how many egg shells they can have per week? I know they are a great source of calcium, but don't know if you...

    A Bump, a lump, a boo boo or worse?

    I found a spot on Balboa's front leg (front side of the elbow area). I first noticed it last week. At first, I thought it was a small boo boo from one of the other dogs. Well, it has gotten bigger. It is more oval shaped than round, about half as big as a pencil eraser. It is not hard, but...

    Finally Figured It Out

    I finally got some pictures of Balboa in the gallery. :) They range from three months to 16 months old. Most of them are him in the prone position. That's about the only time he's still enough for me to get a picture. Hope you enjoy.

    Walmart Christmas Boxer does Boxer Burns

    Finally got my Christmas Boxer from Walmart Sunday. Apparently Balboa thought it was another early Christmas present for himself. He snatched it off the table and ran outside. When I made it to the door, he had hold of the toy by the top of the hat with the rest of the thing dragging the...
