    Chipped and discolored tooth

    My 5 1/2 month old puppy chipped the tip of one of her lower canine teeth a couple of weeks ago. I didn't think much of it then, as she didn't seem in any pain at all, the loss didn't affect her...

    Positive reinforcement works, as does the electronic collar. Each method has their positives and negatives. One observation-- I can tell which parents use only positive reinforcement in 'training'...

    Several years ago my lab was bitten on her back toe by a copperhead. We called our vet; he told us to give her Benadryl, keep her calm and if she got severe symptoms bring her in. Her leg swelled,...

    My condolences. I've been there recently, too. You'll never forget her, but after awhile the good times will be fondly remembered and the hurt will ease somewhat.

    This is hard to find outside of the cotton belt (South), but cottonseed that hasn't been delinted is excellent bedding. If kept dry it's warm and the oil in the seed does wonders for the dogs coat. ...

    When I farmed back in the late 70's, it was very common for dogs to ride in the pickup bed; no one owned (or thought of ownng) a dog crate. Both of my goldens rode in the bed. Now, I wouldn't...

    Amy,
    What type of training do you recommend for ordinary pet owners, besides positive reinforcement training? Can they combine positive reinforcement training with traditional correction training? ...

    I know it's really hard to do, but let the first dove season be his; leave your gun at home and let the other guys do all the shooting. Just concentrate on his steadiness and fetching by using the...

    I don't think it's the sounds; my old dog, Maggie, would sit with me in a dove field trembling with excitement--not fear. She would look for birds at the sound of a gunshot nearby. However,...

    I'm really sorry for your loss. They just don't stay around long enough. No matter how many dogs you have, you won't forget. The only consolation is that over time the memories will be happy ones.

    Until Maggie passed last spring, I took her dove hunting every season. Feathers didn't seem to bother her; she would have a mouthful of feathers after giving me the dove, but didn't mind at all. ...

    proper travel crate size

    After losing Maggie last spring, I'm finally getting a new puppy this month. She will be living in the house and housed in a 42" crate. I'll need a travel crate for my Ford Explorer, and am thinking...

    I know exactly how you feel. When I took Maggie to the vet for the last time, he said "Bob, this is the last best thing you can do for her". You have my heartfelt condolences.

    Raising a non-aggressive male

    Well, Maggie passed last March 18, and I think I'm ready for another pup. I want to get a male, primarily so he won't be compared to Maggie (who was perfect!). I don't plan on neutering him, as I've...

    The only thing worse than seeing them get old is not having them at all; I lost Maggie March 18 and it still hurts. I'm almost able to talk about her without crying.

    Not to hijack the thread, but I also noticed flea resistance to fipronil. However, imiclaprod (sp?) seemed to work well for me on fleas last season. It doesn't work at all on ticks, though.

    I know exactly how you feel. I had to put Maggie down last week. Like you, I didn't want to let her suffer. Like you, I cried like a baby. Still talk to her all the time, but now, fond memories are...

    Am I too old?

    I lost my 12 yr old 'pup' Maggie to cancer yesterday. I held her in my arms as the vet injected the solution. Wasn't going to let her suffer. People say the pain gets easier, but it surely hasn't...

    As long as you make them mind, you can't spend ENOUGH time with your pup. My 'pup' is 12 yrs old, and I know my time with her is limited; it passes so fast. Enjoy it while you can.

    I think you're correct; I take my lab fishing, and she drinks water obsessively when I catch a bass! It's a type of stress relief behavior. Fortunately, my bass fishing is so bad that she hasn't...
