    Rescued Dog?

    It's possible. as people will pay money for almost anything, but it does seem unlikely that they paid $3000 for her unless she's a pedigree breeding dog. You said she's a Shiba mix, so she's not a pedigree, and rescues and shelters almost always spay. Usually I've heard 'rescue' used for...

    Flea and Heartworm drops

    Have you tried talking to your vet? Sometimes they can give you ear cream or drops which are easier to administer on cats with thick coats. The only other option I've used was to keep combing the back of the neck until the fur was nicely parted and I could see a little skin, but it won't work if...

    Toys, noises, and owner's nerves

    We managed to replace the much loved and very shredded tennis ball with a giant squeaky plushy snake. It's supposed to be invincible, but it has lumps torn off it already. It has a dog who loves it dearly. And it has six squeakers. The song of my life now goes "squeak". In the morning, in the...

    Should it be legal to declaw a cat?

    Forgive me if I am wrong, but I'm not sure it you are familiar with declawing. Declawing refers to a specific operation, which removes a cat's claws by removing the first joint of the paw. In a human it is the equivalent of removing your fingernails by amputating your finger from the top joint...

    A puppy with problems

    Well, I caught up with them at the weekend. It seems they took Bob back on the Friday bank holiday over a week ago and kept Anne. Anne's been absolutely fine ever since, she's still pleasant, friendly, and loves people. She was sitting by the park bench, quite happy and very tired after a long...

    Favourite Dog Movies or Books

    In a slight spin on @dihewe 's thread, what are your favourite dog movies? Limiting it to anything that stars a dog in a leading role, whether its live action or animated, or if the dog talks or acts like a pet, what are your favourites? As a dog book I grew up with the Incredible Journey and...

    Easter Eggs for dogs

    Our pet shop has been selling dog-safe Easter eggs for weeks, and I keep wondering about whether to get one (or two, to prevent squabbles). In the event I've opted for steak as their Easter treat instead, which I'm pretty sure was the preferred choice, judging from the way two pairs of eyes...

    Dog Parkour

    I haven't heard of it before, but it looks like fun! It would certainly make a walk more interesting, and memorable. I don't think my two would be temperamentally suited for this, but if a dog enjoys it why not? It would be a good way to get a little extra agility training in. My only worry is...

Owners submit photographs of their dog, users vote on them each week, and the one with most votes is next week's cover dog! They also have the right to do a feature on...

    Hardest and Easiest Fish to Take Care Off

    I tried a fish tank once, but it was many years ago, and those were the hardest fish I had to look after. They didn't last long, but unfortunately it wasn't something I did. One of the fish had an infection which spread and killed the rest rather quickly. I don't trust pet shops to sell fish...

    Furminator brushes?

    I keep looking at the Furminator brushes in the pet shop, because they are really expensive, but I know pet owners that swear by them. The videos of it in use are impressive, but then you would expect a promotional video to be or it wouldn't be doing its job. I'd just like to get some of the...

    A puppy with problems

    I spoke to them last night and Bob is going back to the breeder tomorrow, when they have the day off. There are children in the house, so they aren't taking a chance. They haven't had him long and he is still a puppy, so hopefully an experienced dog handler can correct him before there is...

    Dogs and other animals together?

    If you have dogs and cats or other pets, how do they get on? I was just going to ask about dogs and cats, but there have to be people with other pets and dogs, and I'd love to know how your dogs react to other animals. I've seen a range of ways dogs and cats can react to each other, from dogs...

    Marvel fans

    I'm really looking forward to it. Spider-man finally where he belongs, in a Marvel film, and I have my fingers crossed they've done him right. Everyone tends to think of Spider-man as a goofy hero, but he's incredibly strong, has spider sense, and even took out the X-men on one occasion by...
