I would rub as much as you can out with a paper towel, then work in some liquid dish soap (just into the fur, if possible), then rinse, rinse, rinse.. if you have to bath the entire dog, then follow up with a soothing creme rinse of some sort. For my two I use an oatmeal based dog shampoo - but grea...

Any Ideas?

How about feeding one dog some asparagus. It has a very distinctive odor in urine.. you might be able to find out that way..Also, if you think it's your male, check for wet spots on furniture legs, etc. where he might have raised his leg.

Da Yoopers dog tail tale

I have heard that one told slightly differently. (Barb, the 'da yoopers' story was the original indian story I was looking for when I sent you one)...anyway...the 'yoopers' story was a southwest indian legend, and the dogs had all gone to a tribal dance, but had to leave their tails on the fence. Co...

Allergies

Rebecca, ask your dr. if you could take "Singulair." I have suffered from allergies all my 62 years, but when I was given Singulair for my asthma a couple of years ago, the allergies went away too. It is one little pill I take every morning. No more runny nose, itchy eyes, etc. They do prescribe it ...

Burrs and stickers and sticks, oh my....

Would a child-size teeshirt work to fend off the burrs? Just wondered. It would be relatively cool as well..

Hugging

Max doesn't exactly 'hug', but he does like to get up close to my face. If I tell him "listen, Max" he will put his head down on my chest like he's hearing a heartbeat. It is funny to see...

Barking as a 'returning owner' response

Barb, your remarks really rang a bell....my rescue Connie, who suffers from separation anxiety, is the mouthy one of my two. She barks, semi-purrs, and generally vocalizes. Max, on the other hand, barks when it is necessary- like strangers in the yard, but otherwise is pretty silent. Connie carries ...

Bordatella vaccine

Just for what its worth, I've had every dog I've ever had - since the late 60s...given the bordatella vaccine. No problems ever. The dogs were dalmatians and now Britts.

Because I feed Connie in her crate in the living room and feed Max in the kitchen, it was always a hassle to retrieve Connie's bowl. It was usually at the back of the crate, making it necessary to get down on my hands and knees, followed by a hungry Britt, to get her bowl out. I taught Max to "go ge...

I have wire, soft and hard sided (airline) crates. My latest purchase was a soft side...and if I were to do it over again, I would measure my dog and buy one size longer. It is ok for him, but I've noticed that when he is lying down in it he tends to poke his toes onto the front opening flap. Eventu...
