Rethink Your Dog’s Water

As is the case with many large breed working-class dogs, Baylie has a propensity for joint problems. Even as a pup, she began experiencing mild knee problems and was prescribed a joint supplement by her vet.  It was  in pill form and Baylie wanted no part of them.  She caught on right away to my feeble attempt at hide-the-medicine-in something-yummy trick.  She would look at me as if to say, “come on, are you kidding me, this is the best you  ‘GOT’ ?”

CanineTail Docking – A Dog’s Perspective

Baylie Dog here. It is a sensitive subject but there comes a time in a young pup’s life that it has to be discussed.

Living in a multiple species household (one dog, one cat), you realize pretty quickly that dogs and cats are quite different in the appetite department.  A cat will let you know if they have issues with what you serve them for dinner. They care about the presentation; type of bowl and how many morsels are contained within for maximum eating pleasure. Some  don’t like to dine alone and require an escort   for a 3:00 a.m. snack.  Don’t be surprised if your  cat turns up her nose and walks away from the food you have fed her for last ten years. That’s their way of letting us know it’s time for a change in the menu.  However, with a large-breed dog,   it’s quite different.
