My vet is half an hour away. They're in the next city over, but it's definitely worth the drive for such an amazing vet.

I'm originally from Texas and Dallas was 3 hours from where I lived, but people would drive to my town to see the doctors at the local animal hospital there.

If you find a good one, I would say it's worth the trip.

Article can be found here.

Cooperation, attachment to people, understanding human verbal and non-verbal communications, and the ability to imitate are just a handful of the social behaviors we share with dogs. They might even think like us at times too, according to the paper, which has been accepted for publication in the journal Advances in the Study of Behavior.

While there is no evidence to support that dogs and humans co-evolved their laundry list of shared behaviors over the past 10,000 to 20,000 years, the researchers believe adapting to the same living conditions during this period may have resulted in the similarities.


Thought this was kind of interesting. The video is short and cute, so remember to check it out. wink

Thank you for posting this. I have a Pom/Eskie mix so he went/is going through something of an uglies phase, but he will never fill out like a purebred obviously.

I never knew how bad it could get with purebreds as far as uglies goes, so I'm glad I've been warned as I am bringing home a purebred on Friday!

I thought this was cool! My e-mail answer to a Petfinder inquiry was featured in this month's newsletter! snoopy

Here's a unique tip from Kelli Rau:

"We have set up a savings account just for our dog so we always know we have something set aside for him in case of an emergency."

What a story! I commend that woman for not giving the dog up even when money was so tight she gave up her car and barely fed herself and her daughter. There should be more dedicated pet owners like her in the world.

I own Pomeranians and I would say they are my favorite.

Besides them I would say Australian Shepherd.

Dog Health > Progressive Pain

Mason - That's what we are thinking, too.

I was doing research online and it says his medication may help, but he'll be on bed rest for the next 4 weeks. He ate earlier today, so I'm feeling better about that ... but now he won't poop. Even if I hold him up, he can't seem to go.

If his medications do not do the trick, he will have to go in for a dye x-ray. If that shows the disc, he'll need surgery. We're hoping it doesn't come to that.

No bloodwork, but I took him back into the e-vet last night and they think he is suffering from a slipped disc which is pinching his spinal nerve.

We have to go back in a couple of days to get x-rays done on his upper spinal column to see if we can find the culprit. For now he is on a new drug regimen of steroids and painkillers in hopes it will help him feel better.

He's still in massive amounts of pain, but he is eating again.

Apollo is experiencing progressive pain on the right side of his body. It started as a dull pain in his right hind leg, that got worse and now the pain is all the way up the side and also in his right front leg.

They did x-rays on the back leg and found nothing, assumed it was a sprain. They put Apollo on Metacam which helped a little the first night, but is no longer assisting him with pain. He has not eaten anything in over 24 hours.

Are there any thoughts on what this could be? He will be going back to the vet, but I need suggestions here. This is really eating at us and we can't even begin to think what this could be.

Apollo is only 11 weeks old.
