Cats and dogs have different vocalizations and body language that are easy to spot when you’re more familiar with them. Both of my dogs sneeze while playing (to let each other know it’s all play) and do this thing where they lower their torsos with their bums up and tails wagging. Happy vocalizations are usually […]

We’re now back to pre-op exercise levels, but we still have a much more active dog.
Is there anything I can do about it? It’s a pain in the ass trying to scoop soft wet poop from the sidewalk.
