    Ouch! I guess I didn't fully explain my situation; actually my pup is steady and runs blind retrieves well...I didn't state that in my previous post. I'm certain she could do HT work if I desired...

    I (unlike most posters on this board) have had personal experience with Robert Milner and his Duckhill Kennels. After my lab died I waited a time deciding whether I wanted another. After checking...

    Pups this age can't have too much socialization. Other than being a hassle for you to take care of, I can't see how it would be too bad. I'll bet your family would love seeing a new pup, especially...

    Cotton mouths generally swim along the bank, while water snakes are the ones you find in the trees over water.

    Pups need socialization with their littermates & mother, so they can learn 'dog speak' before they're separated. I picked up my latest pup at 16 weeks, and she's really socialized.

    In ANY transaction, the 'cost' you have in anything is already gone; the accounting term is a 'sunk cost'. You've already spent that time/money on the asset. Puppy price, vet bills, training time,...

    I've noticed Frontline's lack of effectiveness also. Advantage works well on fleas but is ineffective on ticks.

    Good advice! My 8 mo old pup has almost stopped having 'accidents' in the house. I've noticed that she is very 'surface related' when it comes to the type of ground cover, etc. that she uses. She...

    My pup was microchipped with the AKC 'reunite' chip very early and I enrolled her in the AKC program. Is this a good setup, or should I look for a different chip now?

    Time does heal.....in it's own way. I lost Maggie last March; the first night without her was the worst. I never felt so alone. Now, the tears have been (partially) replaced by fond memories. I...

    My old dog was about two before she stopped chewing shoes and was safe to leave outside the crate when we were gone. It doesn't hurt to crate them when you're away--rule of thumb is one hour plus...

    So sorry for your loss. They just don't live long enough. My Maggie passed last spring; I've got another puppy that is a joy, but I still remember Maggie's first day with us, and her last.
