I second Barb on the go slow. You also might want to give Ms. Greta some kiddie acidopholis tablets--the same probiotics found in yogurt without the potential issues.

Mama's boy is a good thing, in this case. :D Orion's still energetic, not as much as a lap baby as he was as a teenager, but he still loves to sit with me on the sofa or the floor at my feet. I think it depends on the dog in question.Still, it's nice to have someone dance over their dinner. 8) 8) 8)

Some things my friends with people puppies have tried: get a tape of a crying baby so they get used to it now when the baby is born, bring something home with his/her scent on it so the four-legged sibs get used to it make sure that they get fussed over, too! 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) Congrats and ble...

:shock: Hi Brian, hope that Storm's doing better today. That is a nasty way to wake up. White rice, bananas and low-sodium chicken broth are what I give Orion. When he feels ready for something more substantial, he drinks the broth, picks out the banana, then sticks his nose in the rice and tosses i...

I didn't see the show (can't get the local CBS affiliate, don't have cable or dish, have a microwave because it was built into the range hood, call waiting because it was bundled in, THEY have a file on me, but I digress :wink: ). But Bill, give Star a bisky for Orion and me. I'm so sorry. I wish th...

Hope this finds Levi feeling better. Orion's never eaten a bug like that, but when we first move out here, he developed a taste for yard salad and chateau sump pump :shock: . Is it just me, or do you know that you're really a dog person when biological functions become appropriate topics for dinner ...

Orion is 11.5 years old, has arthritis in both knees, a low-grade heart murmur, and still drags me around the park 3-5 miles a day, depending on weather. He also gets the zoomies/looney runs once a week or so. :lol:

No kidding! I heard a same but different story a few years ago--a college-age woman was walking home from class one night and found an older man who was bombed to the point where he couldn't find his house. She helped him that night and several other times, becoming acquaitned. Well, she stopped run...

Try Only Natural Pets or google in natural dog food. The treats may be a bit more, but very much worth it. 8)

Glad Kayla's better :D! What's the word on your dad, Cindy? Hope he's better, too. The good news is that you never have to go through these last--what, two weeks?--again.

It's time like this that we must remember that all things must pass, and that usually they come out all right in the end.
Glad to hear that Mr. Buckley is better. I'll go put myself in my crate now :D
