"On top of that, even though I am technically breaking that rule already...but there is an option on Facebook to report an account solely because it is a "pet" account."

@Cobain, I'm not sure what the difference between an account and creating a page, but under "create a page" option, FB has a choice of artist, band etc. and a subheading under that is pet

--so we can have a pet page--is it that you can't friend with pages, only receive likes, is that why it wouldn't work?

I know many people have become FB friends from Dogster but it is weird how different and cool it is posting as your dog and being called by your dog's name. It's like a secret alter ego that is entwined with your dog. I do like Moose's idea of somehow keeping that up as a dog profile on facebook if we can't find a central forum that's as cool as Dogster. But even facebook seems so scattered with it's various groups. . . confused

Heck I'm even going to miss the silly emoticons . . .shrughamster dancemeditate:

I agree, it depends on your priorities. My priorities are that they walk well on leash, and aren't pests in public. One goes to work with me, and she's friendly and charming, people love her and thus she's welcome. She's naturally gentle with little kids. She does beg, but her number one default move is to sit for food, so she doesn't pester or whine, she just patiently hopes. And it works, the guys at work enjoy giving her a bit of food . .. and that further reinforces her to sit politely at people rather than jump on them. To me that would be a great thing for all dogs to be in the habit of . .. thinking that sitting is their best bet for charming a stranger.

They don't bolt out doors, but it's never occurred to me to drill them to resist never going out an open door until given permission. If I opened the door and left it that way, it's to specifically for them to go into a safely fenced yard and come back in . . .

Food on the floor, eh--they're my clean up crew, if I drop food on the floor, I'm not going to eat it, and it makes their day to get it . .. win win.way to go Isn't that the whole history of the dog/human relationship? We eat, they hope to get some scraps?

I believe it's right there in chapter one, section one of the Dog Code--"Never leave a calorie behind."

Not that it makes it any better, but I suspect Blacky's photos are swiped and the person posting as Blacky made up a profile. Nothing about the profile reads like normal things a dog owner would put up, if ya know what I mean. The old website that Pippin linked to is no longer out there, but I swear those kids look familiar, like they were in those original photos from years ago.

It's obviously a dumb thing to "exercise" a dog by having him ridden by children, esp. oversized ones at that. Just because one can cite other bad forms of exercise for dogs, doesn't mean choosing another bad form is o.k., duh!

Behavior & Training > Getting picky or just eating less?

I'd experiment, eating the exact same thing for 10 years, maybe she's just not interested and/or the company could have changed the formula a bit recently. You don't want to change too suddenly, but I know many people believe it's healthy to rotate dog foods . . ..

I'd certainly top off kibble with some canned food. I dunno, life is short, I think a dog should have food they really love (measured out for correct weight maintenance, of course) and will finish in one meal.

I've found my dog likes some of the premium brands of kibble like Natural Balance, but wouldn't touch other brands like Professional.... and she's a food hound, so I figured if she was picky about it, it wasn't all that great tasting.
