    pet get well stories

    ... moral of the story, don't give your dogs any bones, my vet said its an absolute no no.... cooked or not cooked. Really? This always confuses me. At our puppy training, we had a session on diet & were advised to give our dog raw chicken carcasses / raw lamb bones etc, cooked vegies...

    Can this be developed for 2 townhouses

    Just call the Council & they can give you a 'yes' 'no' answer in about 10 seconds. (Bit easier than being 'testy' on here with others that are offering advice) :)

    what if i'm on the receiving end of an unfair will.

    Life's what you make it. Suck it up, move on & appreciate what you have here & now. Leave the bickering to those with selfish hearts & too much time on their hands

    Neighbour issue , what do you think of this ?

    Sorry, guilty of skimming too (except Dazz's bits cos they're always funny, except when they're directed at me, then it takes me a few days to see 'the funny') Anyhoo, I believe naturestrips are Council-controlled land. Generally, you're not allowed to place any 'thing' on council-controlled...

    Would you prefer to receive a lower inheritance sooner or a higher inheritance later.

    You can only make a decision in the present with the knowledge you have now. If only we could flip open the crystal ball app on our iphones & see what 15 years would be like. I agree, sentimentality aside, take the money now & make use of it. It may not be there in 15 years & neither might...

    How to introduce dogs?

    Oh, ok. It doesn't sound great, but it doesn't sound like the worst situation either. Sounds like lil dog is the leader. (Little dogs can do a lot of damage; one attack with 2 terriers on another dog left an owner with about $8K vet bill!) Does the smaller dog take the lead when the dogs...

    Dogs used for dog fighting

    True. I think the shelter bears some of the responsibility. They should have temperament tested the dog a bit more. They should have interviewed you & your family & your particular needs as well. Perhaps they didn't match you with the dog very well. Good to know you interviewed the...

    How to introduce dogs?

    True what vb says about the leash. They can sometimes make the dog feel trapped/restrained & thereby make it become defensive/aggressive. But it does give you an element of control if you're not sure of the situation.

    How to introduce dogs?

    Have a look at their body language & vocalisations too: are they play bowing when they're close together? is the barking deep or extremely high pitched, aggressive, teeth-baring stuff or just a more neutral tone? is the body rigid & preparing for action or is it more relaxed? (are they...
