I don't want to contribute to or start new drama, I was just wondering.

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Re: I've run out of excuses
« on: March 12, 2009, 04:28:50 am »
All good suggestions (per usual). :)

I finally started using the prong collar when Bear, in his excitement to get to the dog across the street, pulled me into a busy street almost causing a car crash. Not a good scene. The collar -- when used correctly (high on the neck, just behind the ears) -- plus a lot of 'good boy' treats, worked magic. The slightest flick of my wrist and my saying "with me" would bring his attention back to me and curb his enthusiasm. He was never able to 'play' with other dogs but walking was a much calmer and happier experience.

Don't fret. You'll find what works for your pups. In the meantime, know that plenty of us on BPO feel your pain. Hang in there!

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / lots of gas lately...
« on: March 05, 2009, 05:19:17 am »
Nakita has had a lot of gas lately. I know, big paws are infamous for their flatulence, but lately it's been really bad. Some nights it seems almost constant and it is particularly r-e-e-k-y. :P  She's an old girl (12 in January) and her diet hasn't changed. Should I be concerned? Well, about anything other than air quality? ;)

Boxer Discussions & Pictures / kind thoughts for a loving boxer

My sister's 7-yr-old boxer Gracie is having surgery today to remove an ulcerated mast cell tumor. The location is good - upper flank area - so removal should be relatively easy. Kind thoughts to dear Gracie for a quick and full recovery, please.  :-[  :-*

And more thoughts and prayers, please, to my sister and her family who are still recovering from losing their boxer pup Annie a year ago. The possible poor outcome with Gracie is breaking their hearts all over again.  :-[

They all could use some of that powerful BPO energy pointed their way...

Hope today is better.  :-*

Your title made me smile too. My daughter (now 20) and I read that  book - and the sequels - all the time.

Scootergirl got it. Just keep calm and friendly and not make a big deal of it. Enjoy it! And only treat when they behave nicely, as expected. Look forward to seeing pics of the new friends!

I love seeing pics of your crew Anita  :D Who doesn't fantasize about four giant furballs, all beautifully groomed and dutifully sitting for group pics.  Happy Birthday & Happy Holidays!  :-*
