    Oh, you'll be praying for generous/inattentive judges, at some point, lol (not at all implying that's the judges in the particular video listed here). It's nice to have the perfect dog give the...

    Osteosarcoma is a rotten diagnosis any way you look at it. Right now, you're shocked, devastated, looking for hope and answers. There is always hope, there are no right or wrong answers. You have to...

    I will put nothing, repeat, nothing, in my dogs' ears until they've been seen by a vet. If there's an inner ear infection, burst eardrum, which CANNOT be seen without a scope, you can do some real...
