This thought has struck me many times over the last 7 months as I’ve been walking my now 9-month-old puppy in the morning. Most people in my area, who are on the older side, tend to walk with their dogs as though the dog is just this thing that happens to be walking next to […]
Finally, we hope that, through our rescue efforts, we also shine a light on the dog meat trade in Vietnam and other countries and, thereby, encourage others to advocate for the end of the dog meat trade and speak up for those who have no voice.
My 2 darlings
Two more rescues roughhousing. The dog was the FIRST thing I got after I bought my own house and the kitten, he claimed me one day when i was on shift at the firehouse. My cousins used to have a DSH cat and a giant ass rottweiler. This rottweiler was strong enough to drag my […]
Best dog food?
This is obviously a contentious topic, but I was curious if you could shed some light on some of the comments I have heard over the years. My vet has always recommended the big 5 brands for the reasons mentioned in your other comments. I have heard opinions, particularly in the rescue community, that these […]
My loving dog
A few days ago I asked y’all what could be wrong with my dog, as she wasn’t feeling well. Yesterday we took her to the vet, they said she might have pneumonia. We were going to leave her there for 3 days, but today disaster struck. The vet called my mom and told her Gracie […]
Loving cats and dogs
As a no kill proponent, long time foster and shelter volunteer, since 1983. I agree with some points. Some pets are truly mentally ill and no amount of training or drugs will fix their aggression or issues. Sometimes the medical costs to help a suffering animal are very high. An owner must weigh out the […]
Feeling sorry for the dog
The shelter I got him from is a non kill shelter and I love the dog. I knew a dog would take a lot of time effort mental drain physical drain in the beginning and slowly will get better, my mental can not keep up and I’m getting sick a lot because I’m so worried […]
I adopted a rescue dog almost a year ago. It was a huge adjustment for her, as she’d never been a pet or lived in a home before. I think she did amazingly well with it. In the last ten months she’s learned to love cuddles and pets, mastered several commands, been leash and toilet […]
My best friend
I had to drop my baby girl off at the hospital today. She’s an 11 year old sassy shih tzu. She’ll be twelve next month. She’s been the one constant thing in my life for over a decade. She’s my first and only baby, my best friend and my joy. She has diabetic ketoacidosis and […]
My friend neglected the dog
Backstory: I live in a house with 6 guys and now two dogs(my husky and a roommates new pup). We’re all in our senior year besides housemate X (who owns the puppy) and is a year out of school and now works a 9-5 job that has an hour commute. Last year his girlfriend and […]
Will my puppy lose its color?
So we just took our dog into Petco for a grooming. (Not our first choice but our preferred groomer got COVID and any decent one is a month out.) The two groomers told us he would lose his spots. We love him either way but his color is gorgeous. Does anyone know if these spots […]
