Oh...and have any of you watched "Boys on the Side"? OH MAN! I watched it with my best friend when we were like, 17 or so, and we were crying and telling each other how much we loved each other...WOOOH! A good girly cry-y movie!

I LOVE YOU WOMAN! (my best friend is a BPOer...hehehe!)
My Gawd! Yes, we cried our eyes out and professed our undying friendship to each other.

I still bawl if I watch that movie.   :'(   :D

There were no premium brands on the list, but that doesn't mean premium brands don't have bad stuff in them. From the list, it looks like grocery store or Wal-Mart selections of food. They all have rendered meat products in them.

Innova doesn't have "by-products" or "meals" in the ingredients, which makes it less likely to have anything bad in it. Furthermore, if they guarantee "human-grade" ingredients, you shouldn't have to worry about it at all.  :)

How can anyone do such a thing to a creature that can sustain such agony yet still have such a sweet face? My dogs are looking at me funny right now because I am crying as I type.   :'(

I told this story a few times today. Oddly, it was actually a laughing matter each time because the description of a PCP'd up dude walking down the street chomping on a puppy is just so ridiculous and unimaginable. People can't help but chuckle as they say "OH MY GOD, WHAT???"

Behavior, Housebreaking, Obedience / Re: Chewing toys on me
« on: April 21, 2006, 05:22:46 am »
That's interesting. My dogs don't chew ON me per say, but they try to get me to hold their toys while they chomp on them...and I'm a sucker and do it sometimes. The will chomp and drop it, look at me with sad eyes, pick it up, look at me sad again, drop it, pick it get the picture. Eventually I am like "Fine, you pansy, I'll hold your bone so you can chew it"

I'm such a sucker.

Good luck in breaking him of his habit!

Holy crap. Do you live in Mayberry or something. The VET shoots him in the head? You could hire Jimbo from down the street to give your horse some whiskey and shoot him if that's the case. WTF?????

What a terrible insult in a hard time. I'm glad you found a good one to do it for you.

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Re: Strangers by my fence

If you are in a medium/big city, I would worry a bit. If you are in a small town or a smi-rural area, I wouldn't worry as much. The only reason I give for this is that it seems that big citys have an unwritten "code" that says you don't stop at someone elses yard and gawk, especially not repeatedly. In rural areas or in small towns the "code" seems allows for a lot more lax behavior, because people assume they are in a "safe" environment.

Either way, just keep an eye out as best as you can, and make your presence known. If they are up to no good, but they know you are always watching, it won't be worth the risk to them.

Rottweiler Discussions / Re: Starting doggy on BARF
« on: April 20, 2006, 01:04:04 pm »
I don't feed my dogs a BARF diet, but they do eat Wysong.

One of my boys has hip displaysia and along with a high quality diet and exercise, he also recieved a course of accupuncture and chiropractic treatments when he was about 1 year old.

When we got him he couldn't make it up the two stairs we have in our house. After the accupuncture and chiraopractics he imporved greatly. He is now 6 years old and run around like wild with no problems. He hasn't even had "maintenance" sessions. (plus my vet retired, dammit)

Rottweiler Discussions / Re: Is he too skinny
« on: April 20, 2006, 12:57:33 pm »
He doesn't look too thin to me. I would say, as long as he has a thin layer of fat over his ribs he's perfect...just like any other dog. Just my opinion.

One of my dogs didn't "fill out" in width until he was almost 4 years old.

Pointer Discussions & Pictures / Re: pointer cross or just a pointer?

Nope, Watson is a Weim mix. Our fist GSP was solid liver and looked a lot like him, but he is a Weim mix for sure. We got him from the Humane Society but he has a history from birth. He wa actually "returned" four times before we got him. Antoher board member here, Nicole, was working at the humane society and she let me know he was there. He is so insanely hyper, I can't imagine anyone else in this area being able to handle him. Fortunately, we love ridiculously hyper dogs!

Also, he is about 27 inches at the withers. He is way out of standard for a GSP, but within the range of a Weim. Although, our papered GSP is 28 inches, so he is WAY too tall for his breed.

I have one GSP, and a GSP/Weim cross. The cross looks just like a weim to me, but with GSP liver color instead of grey.
