So as many know my dog has gone through 4 knee surgeries in the last year. The last being in September. Today she came in from being in the back yard and wont put any weight on her right leg.

It looks like this may be #5 coming up. She is only 7 years old and has a 14 year life expectancy. My wife didn't like it when I told her this morning we would need to have a plan on how much of this crap we are willing to put her through. Hopefully she just pulled a muscle. The first dr appointment I could get was on Tuesday. So she will be kept on crate rest until then.

Ringo had some diarrhea this morning. I give him a hard time but he is a quality dog. I take it for granted. Calmly he went over to the front door, sat down, looked at me and very clearly said, "Hey man, take me outside again? I gots the shits." He's smart and observant, but it took me a while to realize that because he doesn't have much of an impulse to please humans, like the most impressive trained dogs seem to. He is independent and wild at heart I guess. But cognitively speaking I think he has a lot going on. The wheels are always turning.

Sorry man. Tough situation. How do you get an animal to rest an injured leg. Best of luck, hope it's just an owwie.

No clue. We keep her in a crate when we aren't home. Make sure she is on a leash 100% of the time she is outside and carry her up and down the stairs when we are trying to prevent her from using a leg.

But she still tries to put weight on it.

Hope everyone's well. Been busy. Like the new pic of Ringo. Good luck with your dog J-Fish.

14 pups. 6 males. Mine is one of these I suppose. (these are the males)

So good news. Last Tuesday the Dr said she just twisted her knee and the surgery is doing great. She is back to her normal self now. So fingers crossed we dont need anything else.

If anyone needs any puppy-rearing tips, ask me I am total authority. I raised a world-class mongrel.

I am sorry but your pooch looks like ET in that tee shirt. Any parent of a dog should not be allowed to dress them up. Give them some respect! ;)

Yeah, can't wait.
Glad there was some good news w/ JFish's dog.

I've got some shitty news (but I'm guessing this happens often?). 2 puppies died. 1 of the boys & 1 of the girls. Down to 7 girls, 5 boys. Still need 1 of the boys to be fawn.

Just got home last night from a weekend trip to ATL and Augusta -- posts and pics coming soon (uploading). Dog-related, I texted my wife a few pic's of Jay's dog Dex and she's going crazy for a Frenchton now.

Something that just occurred to me is that if you have a dog, at some point in time you and it will share an equivalent age. That is pretty neat.

Are you saying the dog wont live 12 years or you wont live past 82?

Not always, but neat if it happens.

What I mean is that at some point in our early forties, me and Ringo are going to be the same age. Just a couple of dudes, hanging out drinking beer.

We just baked up a batch of dog cookies for the first time ever. We figured, we were paying $7 for a 1 lb. bag at the store. And they are filled with god knows what. It'd be one thing if they were a bargain, but that is pretty steep. So we came up with a concoction involving oat flour, brown rice flour, oatmeal, egg, PB, a few other healthy things and some bacon grease for good measure. Tasted pretty good to me! Dog's mind was blown I think. First taste of fresh baked goodness. I didn't get to try his old store bought biscuits before we ran out, but I'm pretty sure they were way worse than ours. If I gave you one and said hey, I made some "healthy energy cookies" you would not think twice, might even like them. Jesus Christ. Lucky dawg.

Can't remember if I mentioned it but I'm leaning toward the raw diet for my dog. That's what the breeder does for all her dogs. She had alot of info. about what's in your pups food & it ain't pretty...

We've fed the little maltese some of the raw food & he goes bonkers for it. If I ever get my dog I think both will be eatin' raw diet.

I'm sure what you made is better for him & not surprised it blew his mind.


Here's what her dog's dinner looks like:

Those are some very lucky dogs. The seed has been planted here, I've started to contemplate making the dogs meals too. It will be better all around for everyone, not just the dog. For us the stupid pet store is a major inconvenience. Probably would be easier if we could just pick up stuff at the human supermarket and whip up a weekly batch. Plus the more I ponder what's in those store bought kibbles the more I hate myself.

Is the prohibition of feeding your dog chicken bones (or chicken with bones) an old wives tale? My understanding was chicken bones splinter and dogs can get the smaller bones and splinters stuck.

Cooked chicken can splinter they say. On the night our dog lost his innocence he ate a whole roasted carcass down to the last molecule, no problem whatsoever. I'll bet he mashed down all the bones into pulp with those back teeth. The back teeth of a dog are scary, even a medium dog has the biting force to completely crush a finger if caught in there. I think the splinter thing is a worst case scenario, most dogs would chew it down okay.

What Beef said. Raw bones, they chomp right through just like in the wild. Cooked = Dangerous.

There's a bunch of YT vids I watched on the raw diet with varying degrees of usefulness.

Sweet potato treats. They are fairly pricy in the store. Make them at home in the oven and they are cheap as dirt. I have been sold lies. What else are they not telling me?
