I absolutely love my dog like there is no tomorrow. She is 1/2 Golden and 1/2 Lab, now 7 years old. She goes with me or my wife nearly everywhere. She thinks she is human. SInce we have no kids, she is treated like our child. Spoiled beyond reason.

I hate to see any dog have to go through surgery or to simply be in pain of any sort. I slept on the floor with mine the first few nights after she had surgery on her ruptured cruciate ligament a couple years ago. It was excruciating to go through for her and likely more painful for me to stand by helplessly and watch her go through it. So I understand how you feel Jason. I truly hope your girl is 100% after she gets the care she needs, both for her sake and yours.

So surgery went better than expected, entire tumor was easily removed and very unlikely it spread anywhere else. The pup is back home resting. Thanks everyone

Have to be honest here, I like to share a beer with Ringo. I pour out a teaspoon of IPA into my palm and he loves it. What it is about the taste he likes, it's hard to say. But he does, and he is sort of picky. Unlike many dogs he wont eat a carrot, and half the time he will pass up peanut butter. I know the internet says alcohol is toxic to dogs, but I believe it only toxic insofar as it's toxic to us too, technically speaking. It's such a small amount that I give him, it can't be bad. Actually what I suspect is that there are some actual gut-health benefits from consuming the alcohol, or the hops or whatever. This dog has a healthy diet and probably the best dog craps you have ever seen. Beer is not an entirely unhealthy substance after all and what this dog gets is usually organic beer. :gross Anyways it's good times, I recommend it. Life is short, give your dog a sip of your beer!

It's the grain and the hops. The alcohol is what's toxic to both of us, but more so dogs and cats because of their size. A small handful would be OK, just not a bottle.

Some breweries make dog biscuits out of the spend grains, which are a pretty healthy treat. I made some and Spencer had one and never had another one.
