I know Bentley wasn't the "smartest" thing I have ever done but my heart and gut tell me if we can get him past his health issues he will be one of those great ones! He already heels on a leash, sits without giving a voice command only hand signals, watches my every move waiting for me to do somethi...

This morning I went PEOPLE food shopping at the local grocer... and my grocer carries beef hearts! So about a mile from my home I have a fresh (well frozen) supply of hearts! OK never bought an animal organ in my life but here I was happy as a clam doing so! Brought it home, cut off a small slab (ma...

My vet told me the regular science diet would be great for him, no perscription diet plan was mentioned. As she sells science diet I took what she said with a grain of salt :? I have bought the Wellness brand puppy treats. I liked how they tore up into teeny tiny pieces... I can get 10-15 rewards ou...

Thanks for all the responses. I don't take offense to any of them, I promise! I am pretty thick skinned and am looking to change the behavior of my kids so she will respect them as leaders. I do have to laugh a bit about the old and feeble part. Yes, she is the age of a little old grannie but most d...

diet plan for VSD puppy

A little background ... a golden retriever puppy rescue sort of found its way to us. I knew going in the pup has VSD and this might not be the "smartest" rescue I have ever done but nobody else wanted this extremely sweet and extremely smart and well behaved puppy due to his medical. He was homeless...

Why don't you put it somewhere high where the pups can't get to it? The bubbles will still fall down to their level, won't they? I thought of that BUT... well.. I am cursed with always recuing genius dogs. My mom has a knack for finding "Forest Gump" dumb as nails but wonderfully sweet dogs. (all s...

I loved the first show! Not near as fast with the whole hour to watch how you do things! The reruns with 30 minutes is kind of rushed... 1 minute dog from hell then after commercial the best behaved dog on the block! HA-HA I liked how the show went into detail about not having a quick fix! That it t...
