Medical Conditions & Diseases / Pink eye?
« on: February 02, 2007, 09:47:46 pm »
 I just noticed that Dasher's eyes (the whites of his eyes) are getting pretty pink. what does that mean? is that a sign of him being sick? ive never seen it any of my other dogs. hes acting fine. doesnt act sick or anything. and there isnt any drainage or anything coming out of his eyes. do i need to take him to the vet to get it checked out? any ideas?
 thanks, Leah

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Should I be worried?
« on: February 01, 2007, 02:51:18 pm »
 I am a little worried about Dasher's behavior. When playing with my other dogs, he barks and growls at them a lot. not all the time, but a lot of the time. I have had someone make the comment, is he going to be mean when he grows up? he can sound pretty ferocious (sp?) and shows his teeth. i have read somewhere that barking and growling in a young puppy (Dasher is almostt 11 wks) shouldnt be considered a sign of aggression, but that it just means they havent learned to play appropriately yet. is that true? should i be worried over this behavior? will he grow out of it as he gets older and learns how to play appropriately with other dogs? its worth mentioning that he doesnt bark or growl at any other time other than when hes playing with other dogs. hes very sweet and cuddly, i can take his toys or bones or food away from him with no problems. any advice or opinions would really be appreciated. thanks, Leah

Collars, crates, & other cool things / what kinds of toys?
« on: February 01, 2007, 02:36:03 pm »
  What kinds of toys do you give to your big paws? my golden retriever is so destructive with toys and never seems to have them for more than an hour before he rips them to shreds. we recently bought a toy that had a guarantee, but we got it home and it was torn up within an hour so we took it back to petsmart and a nice woman who worked there recommended a couple other toys to try so we bought one of them, and again, it was destroyed within an hour. so, we are going to take it back, but i was just wondering, are there any toys that are virtually indestructable, because i have yet to come across any. my dogs love love love toys and i want to find some that they can enjoy for longer than an hour. it seems if mankind can walk on the moon than surely we can invent a toy that a dog can not desttroy! lol.

  Thanks again for everyone's great advice. The last couple days have gone pretty well. All 3 dogs have been playing pretty good together. sophie is still trying to dominate him a lot but as long as she is not hurting him, than i do not intervene. you can tell Dasher loves to play with the big dogs, lol. its so cute to watch them all play. potty training is going EXCELLENT. no accidents in the house. and he is sleeping until 7 am. before he starts whining to go out, then i put him out to potty and then we usually go back to bed for a couple hours. so, yeah, i cant complain too much about that. he is soooo smart. hes doing great with "sit". hes pretty calm most of the time and is such a love.
i know im slow in getting the pics, sorry. but you have to blame my hubby for that because he is the one that has to do it for me, as i am clueless about that kind of stuff, and hes been busy. but i have taken lots of pics of the new pup and all 3 dogs together, so i will try to nag hubby to upload the pics tonight,

 Thanks for all the great advice. I will continue to monitor them when they are together to make sure things dont get out of hand, but i will try to let them work things out themselves. i am just hoping that Dasher will not end up trying to be the most dominant and wont try to take sophies place in rank.
I'll let you guys know how things go, thanks again.

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / new puppy problem
« on: January 27, 2007, 05:04:08 pm »
 Ive had my new great dane/lab puppy home for a couple days now and for the most part he is doing great (pics are on the way, i promise!). he hasnt had any accidents in the house, and hes as sweet as can be. him and my golden retriever seem to be fine together. cooper, my golden, overwhelms him, i think, but he just wants to play and play. my collie mix, sophie seems to be more the problem. she has always gotten along fine with other dogs and has been around a puppy once and was fine. but with the new puppy - i named him Dasher, by the way - sophie seems to be trying to dominate him and Dasher isnt wanting to put up with it. sophie tries to pin him down and she puts her mouth around his neck (not hard enough to make him cry) and Dasher barks and growls at her. sophie is more dominate than my golden but still i wouldnt say she is a very dominate dog. she'll be submissive to other dogs often. so, im not quite sure what is going on. hubby seems totally unconcerned about it but i just want to make sure things start out in a positive way, and that they will grow and be great friends. like cooper and sophie.
so, what do you guys think? does it sound like a problem? should i just let them work it out themself? right now i am scolding both dogs when i feel like they arent acting very nice, but im not sure what i should do. any suggestions would be great.

Thanks guys, you're great ;D as long as you can and want to take care of them, the more animals the better, in my opinion. Thanks for the support
