Re: funny blog-you might be a dog person

Oh, you mean that you and the dog aren't supposed to use the same spoon? :shock:

And then there was the day when I had an open sample bag of Taste of the Wild next to an open bag of potato chips and....

Re: Regressing with the mouthing and frenzies

As usual, you have given me some good suggestions. Thanks. I especially like Cindy's. :wink: If they have them dipped in chocolate.... The problem is that Holistic Dad is a telecommunications engineer, and does a lot of if A, then B thinking. As in, "Oakley is a dog. Orion was a dog. Therefore, Oakl...

Regressing with the mouthing and frenzies

Well...let me back up.... Oakley had been doing well until about two weeks ago, then he started regressing with the frenzies and mouthing. The trigger: Holistic Dad heard a rumor at work that his job might be getting shipped to China. :evil: Except that he didn't tell me until we were discussing put...

Yesterday's quakes

Well, there were three quakes yesterday: DC, Colorado, and San Francisco. I hope everyone is ok. Did anyone's pups feel it? Oakley had been acting up for several days before hand--a huge flareup of the jumping and mouthing. He's calmer today, but he was so out of control despite extra walks, playtim...

Re: Howling !!!

We have coyotes in our area. Orion howled with them in his sleep. He scared the crap out of me the first time it happened. I went to check on him and see if he was ill. He just opened one eye as if to say, "WHAT?!?" and went back to sleep. Oakley and I howl together. One of the forest preserves wher...

SKUNKS!!

We have a pile of scrap wood from building our current house in a far corner of the yard. I was out with Oakley a few mornings ago. A mama and two baby skunks sat on top of the pile. :shock: Very calmly and slowly, I told Oakley "leave it" and backed up with him. He left them alone. I gave thanks to...

Oakley is a WHAT?!?!

Well...no Britt in there. :shock: We went to the vet's on Friday due to a nasty tummy bug. I'd been scouring sites looking for Pyr-Britt mixes and found none who resembled Oakley, but several hound/Pyrs who do. I asked Dr. S what she thought. She looked him over, pointed out a few of his features (m...

Re: Quirks

Quirks you want? Quirks you shall have, darlings.... :lol: Orion loved cauliflower and sweet potatoes, but nothing topped a banana. When Holistic Dad had his nightly bowl of popcorn, Orion would go running to the kitchen for his plate of sliced nanners. He slept on his back and snored. Had to have b...

Re: Barking and mouthing meltdowns

Well, just found out something else in the contributing factor department....flaxseed!! :( I've been feeding him Fromm's Chicken a la Veg. It has flaxseed. He had to be on a bland diet over the weekend because of a tummy bug, and was pretty well behaved. He started up again with the tantrums when I ...
