I think some raw feeders don't focus on non-secreting organs (as they count as meat) - I know at first it was too much for me to take it all in, so I didn't do things like heart, tripe, and the like.

But I think they're an important part of the diet too. You've been feeding raw long enough to be able to adjust the amounts of these other organs and see how your dogs do! smile

Raw Food Diet > Blood on poop

Just because it's blood, I'd talk to a vet about it. If it's just on the outside, it could be an irritation on the anus, but still.

Guest, you'll get a better response if you start a new thread, maybe in Food & Nutrition.

OP, I agree with the others. I'm hoping you find a way to get your sweet pup to the vet without breaking the bank too much.

Just keep an eye on him so you can prevent him from marking. No reason to get credit card happy if you can be watchful! smile

Yep, dogs can handle raw meat a lot better than humans!

Oh, it hasn't been posted in a while!

So it may or may not be one of my goals to get an elk ribcage.

And a camera.

And my dogs.

Behavior & Training > Does your dog hate the TV too?

Miss loves Wheel of Fortune, because it makes the doorbell sound.

For a while, every time there'd be a doorbell sound on TV, I'd ask, "Who is it?" and Miss would bark.

For the heck of it, I said "who is it?" after a phone rang on TV.

She went to the door and barked.

And that is how I taught my dog to go bark at the door.

FWIW, they love the Secretariat segments on the Craig Ferguson show.

Behavior & Training > training my shephard mix off leash

Piper, I have a leash called the Buddy System that goes around my waist. I use it for running with my dogs. Here's the website. Buddy System

As for an off-the-shoulder leash, here's a thread on Dogster about it.

And finally, about training dogs on-leash to be good off-leash, I think there's definitely a balance. While on-leash, I can teach my dogs that I am the Giver of All Things Awesome (except Furry Things that Run Around for Chasing and Amazing Dead Thing Smells!). The leash can be more of a safety thing. Yes, sometimes I use it more as a tool than a safeguard, but that's where we are in training and I need to get better, I admit.

The dogs' behavior off-leash is important too - and we can work on things like recall and voluntary check-ins. But those can be started on a leash or long line, so the dog can be safe if s/he chooses to, say, run around like crazy, possibly into an unsafe situation.

Oh no, OP - try not to let the guilt get you too much, okay?

If you'd acted differently, would your sweet pup still be with you? Maybe, maybe not.

Remember him for who he was, and love him always. No dog can ever replace another loved dog in our hearts.

I am so sorry for your loss.
