    Was it easy finding a name for your dog/s?

    It was hard, because we wanted to give him a good name. It took us quite a while to give him a name. We actually changed his name a couple of times, and eventually we got a name that we're all satisfied with. "Rafa" Since we always bring him with us to the tennis court and he likes staying there...

    Why is chоcоlаtе dаngеrоus tо dоgs?

    I hear that onions and hotdogs are harmful as well. (A lot more harmful though?) Yeah, I think he did. :D I think the thread isn't created to ask a question but to inform. It's just that he made it look like he was questioning. But yeah whatever, going back on topic. This is very important...

    Hi guys, how often do you give your dog a bath? I give mine once or twice a week. Luckily, he likes water so bathing him isn't troublesome, but is quite tedious because of his size. Did you have any trouble giving your dog a bath?

    Separation Anxiety

    Thanks for the replies everyone. Yes, I agree, I think every dog has separation anxiety, they just have different levels of severity I guess. I have to retract my previous statement, it's not completely gone for my dog. The best description would be, I think, that it has decreased greatly. Of...

    Favourite short haired dog breed?

    Hmm... Are Labradors and Pugs considered short haired dogs? If yes, then Pugs and Labrador Retrievers are the best for me. The black Labradors in particular. Brown ones are good too, but they look a lot like Golden Retrievers. Yes, short haired dogs are definitely easier to maintain, saves you a...

    Marvel fans

    Avid Marvel fan here and I cannot wait for this movie to be released. Yeah, at first, I'm wondering how they're going to introduce Parker out of the blue and also how they're going to give all those superheroes screen time, but now it seems they can manage. It's funny how people are talking more...

    My 3 dogs - Tisoy, Pipoy, Barbie

    Yeah, they are beautiful dogs. Also very lucky as well to have their own housemaid and they are staying indoors! Is it alright for Pipoy to be in a cage? Doesn't he bark a lot if locked inside? Our dog has his own cage but we never really had the chance to use it. Everytime we put him there he...

    Hоw dо I соrrесt а rасist dоg?

    You see that's a characteristic inherent to dogs I believe. Just like a guard or police dog, he somehow senses if a person has good or bad intention. Or maybe sometimes, they just like to bark at you. Did you have that experience when a dog just growls and snarls at you for no good reason at all...

    Dо dоgs mоurn?

    Thank you everyone, they were all great and touching stories. I don't have any stories yet as good as yours, as my dog is only turning 3 years old. The way he behaves in those years make me believe that dogs really have emotions. They have the most expressive faces of all animals. However, just...

    Do you dogs and cats get along?

    In my experience, they don't. I have a Golden Retriever. Even when he's still a pup, he liked to chase cats. He didn't mean any harm, of course, he's just wants to play. Unfortunately, those cats think otherwise, and they just snarl at him, and even scratch him sometimes. But that's only with...

    What books are you currently reading?

    @HeyBubba, really? That's awesome! Wish I could have been there to witness it. How does it feel to be Hercule Poirot? If that happened to me, I'd be extremely happy. Oh how I wish I got Hercule Poirot skills like you! And yeah, I know, what coincidence this is. Hey @aquaticneko, come back and...

    Separation Anxiety

    Hi guys, did your dog have separation anxiety? Well, mine certainly did! A dog has separation anxiety if the dog gets or appears to get stressed when the owner leaves him/her alone. My dog had it when he was still a puppy. He will start to cry when we are about 5 meters apart, even if I am just...

    How many times a day do you walk your dog?

    Yeah, me too, I rarely take my dog out. I let my brothers do it most of the time. I respect my duties on other aspects though. I am the one giving him bath and food. But of course, that doesn't justify my not taking him out. Yes, it doesn't. I think I'll take him out for a walk right now.

    What books are you currently reading?

    I am currently reading Thirteen Problems by Agatha Christie. I'm halfway done, and I've been enjoying every bit of it. This isn't the first time I'm reading Agatha Christie's books, but this is the first I'm reading a Jane Marple mystery. All the others before were Hercule Poirot mysteries, and...

    How much do you spend monthly for your dog?

    I only owned one dog my entire life, so I can't say much for other breeds. Like you, we never tracked the amount of money we spend. But I can probably give a good estimate, I think around 150-200 dollars a month. I own a Golden Retriever, by the way. I agree with most of the posts here. I think...
