Hi Harper and Winston. They are great looking dogs too.

I come home from the grocery store this afternoon and I had a 2L bottle that's warm. I wanted some so I set it in the snow bank to cool off not thinking about the fact that it makes a perfect target for a male dog. He didn't get it because I saw him before he did. :-0

Not positive, some say it's a balance thing, they grow so fast and others say if they get neutered early they won't lift. I've read that even in tact dogs don't lift. It may have something to do with no other males around, no need for him to mark. Atticus never did either, I always just figured he was to big and it was more comfortable for him to squat. Only draw back is sometimes he pees on his foot...LOL!!

Brought Crash to the vet today. He lost 1.4 lbs. Took blood and will check thyroid. They probably have to change the dose. I had started giving him a whole pill per day for the past week.

Consider splitting it in half and giving it twice a day instead as it helps to even out the thyroid that way. That is what the thyroid groups recommend. My cats really like Flavor-Doh to wrap around their pills. In fact, Wallingford ate half a tub sans pills. Give him a scratch for me, please.

I've always thought Cyprus is a great looking dog.

I've had cats all my life and I'm nor sure that I'll ever figure their interactions out completely. I understand the argument over the top of the computer monitor as it's prime kitty real estate in the winter. But why Sweetie Pie had to mess with Harry when he was trying to walk past her on the bed so he could lie on the other side I have no idea.

Jen, sorry to hear about your problems with Wall-E. I think he should be perfectly fine in the doghouse outside as long as you put lots of straw in it. My sister's dogs in Alaska stayed outside in their doghouses all winter, in sub-zero temps, with lots of straw. Granted, they had thick winter coats. They are/were American Eskimos. She only has one now, and is in Florida, so that one has had to make quite an adjustment. Doesn't have a thick coat anymore.

Jen - Here is a link to a low wattage outdoor heating pad http://cozywinters.com/shop/kh-1070-1090.html. Lots of sites have them and you could probably find them at a pet store as well. They only heat up under the pet and not the whole house. I saw on the news that it is going to be single digits over night next week. I also have a lot of straw in the box (not hay - it has seeds) as it wicks the water off Meeyow if he get wet and is good insulation as well.

People pay to go to the gym all the time, take yoga classes, pilates or whatever. Now they can include their dogs. What a creative idea. It gives the dog a chance to spend some time with a destressed owner. Of course if it cost more than about two dollars a week it's outside my budget right now.

I agree with the donation to animal rescues and shelters. Note that the ASPCA just got a huge fine $ 9.3 million for lauching a nuisance lawsuit against Barnum and Bailey circus over the care of their elephants. Giving money to the large "animal charities" doesn't actually support the care of animal is a waste IMHO. The president of the ASPCA just stepped down late last year from his $500,000 a year job. Here is the ruling in the elephant abuse case:

... a federal judge in Washington, D.C., found after a bench trial in December 2009 that the animal rights groups paid a former Ringling Bros. employee at least $190,000 in order to secure his “initial and continuing participation as a plaintiff in this litigation” and dismissed the case for lack of standing. A federal appeals court upheld the dismissal of the suit last year.

Dog food is better than no food but only in a pinch as it is too low protein for cats to survive on. I feed only canned food but notice that it freezes very quickly in this weather, so dry food is a good choice for the cold. If cat will come for feeding then wet and leave some dry out. Hopefully cat is getting some fresh meat on its own. Even more critical than food is water. I don't have another outlet or I would have an electric water bowl out. As it is, I use a black rubber bowl and fill it with hot water in the house to soak up some heat and then fill it with cool water (takes longer to freeze than hot) and put it out on the porch in the morning and evening.

Here is a link to building cat shelters http://www.neighborhoodcats.org/HOW_TO_FERAL_CAT_WINTER_SHELTER I have seen them built from old coolers and the styrofoam boxes that food is mailed in. Even a big pile of straw or leaves in a dry place is a help to keeping warm. Usually cast will keep a territory and not let others move in, so you probably don't have to worry about attracting a crowd. If you need assistance in getting cat "fixed" let me know and I will try and find a TNR group or a low-cost clinic in your area.

Thank you for taking care of cat from the bottom of my heart.

Thanks Memory! So far the food is still there, some tuna and dog food mixed together. That will have to do for now my truck is in the shop and I won't drive my husbands if I don't have to. I have some chicken I will put out in the morning. We have a pond so fresh water is still available and have seen it in the yard near there during the summer and fall at night. I honestly don't know if I will go so far as to try and trap it and get it fixed but will keep that in mind. Not sure how my husband will feel about spending money on that...what would you think it would cost?

I miss Bloom County.

As far as dog coats go Bear wanted me to go walking in the snow with him yesterday when it was zero. He was happy out side this morning when it was 10 below and came back inside with snow on his nose where he'd been playing in it. I just figured out why his nose is covered with snow. There's little animals that make tunnels under the snow and he has to explore everyone

There is another stray showing up at my door now. Meeyow seems to leave him part of his own food. I know the boy is not fixed but I don't know if I can get close enough to him over time to trap and get him "fixed". He is a huge, black cat with a little white patch on his front over his throat - so I call him Locket. I've been seeing him for months and worrying about the huge abcesses he seems to get. I knew he was drinking out of Meeyow's water bowl but today I saw him eating Meeyows left wet food. Sigh.

If you could borrow a trap I think I would start leaving food in it for both of them. If I could borrow a trap long term I think I'd go get a piece of rabbit wire, make a square tube of it and put their food in that. I'd put it just inside so at first they didn't have to go in it to eat.They would at least get used to eating in something that looked like a trap. If it was open at both ends he might not feel as "trapped as he would in something closed at one end. When he's going in it regularly you could substitute the trap for it.

This was posted in the Pets Forum and I thought that I would share. Simon (cat) is the writer, Mitzi is his "sister", DaiseyMae is his internet girlfriend and Tigger is the elder cat in the family. The elderly couple who have these cats live in (very) rural Georgia.

Well yesterday we had a little xcitment.Mitzi she go out, and no body wanted her outs, but she slick, and gots out anyways.Momma worried daddy bout Mitzi being outs, "she gonna be sick"but old Tigger he sleep.Baggy, he be on top of the car, and Mable, the chicken she up dar wiff him, momma has a duck, and daddy wents out to get Mable down, and as he open de door, mitzi rushed in tween his foots, and turned loose a large chippy monk .Tigger he still sleeps.Mitzi try to cotch him, and I tried to cotch him, but Tigger still sleeps.Momma bugged daddy bout getting the chippy monk out fron under the dish washer, and daddy say he can't, and Tigger still sleeps.Me 'n Mitzi try all evening to cotch em, and it would slip back under de dish washer, and wes would both trys to cotch em, daddy say day sounds lik theys "scratching for a rap song", momma didn't catck on, and Tigger still sleeps.
Old Tigger was having a dream about Daisy May, finaly Tigger gots up, and went to de food dishes, and the chippy Peeped outs, all us went back into de living Rm., and nobody saw what went on in de kitchen, but old Tigger comes outs wiff the chippy in his mouth. The chippy was dead when he sot it down, and daddy prais him bout being a good hunter, and getting de chippy without a sound.Well I gonna be as good a hunter as Tigger, when I gets a little xperence, yo just watch. Simon

Tigger had a front leg amputated after he was shot (I told you this was very rural Georgia) and he was this couple's first inside cat. He also wakes the man up at night to put more logs on the fire they heat the house with.

I have some weight on Hooper, but his exhuberance regularly does me in. He has taken my feet out from under me, hit me in the back with his "superman" dive and caused me to have to go to the chiropractor, about knocked me out and made me see stars when his head came up and cracked me under my eye. Thank goodness he knows who the Alpha person is in the household! I can't get mad at him for being so darn happy, though.

Just trying to keep them occupied in the winter is killing me!! I actually hope we get some snow so they can go play in it. I'm going through bones like crazy $$$

I know what you mean about running into you. I had to teach Bear not to do that and now he runs around me. I just took him for a walk. Fortunately I don't have to walk him on a leash. He's been bugging me for a walk for all day, so I dressed warm and took him out back to the woods. Once he's sure I'm going that way he's gone. He runs to the end of the road(private path) and then turns around to see if I'm coming, waiting until I catch up then he's off again. It's not that he just wants to go for a walk, he can do that on his own if he wants, he wants to go for a walk with me.

Yes he can. He doesn't mind bounding through snow up to his belly. When it's that deep I won't wade through it unless I have to. A couple of times the neighbors beagle has come with us. he'll find a log or something to cross a little stream or wet spot, Bear just slashes through. When it';s nice out I try to take him on a mile or so walk everyday. One day we managed to do three in a couple of pieces and he was ready to do more.

Bear and Cliffie would be great friends. Cliffie is swimming in the snow when he goes out. His feet only sometimes touch the ground so he can dive into the next patch of snow. Here he is during the blizzard last night.

Cliffie is a good looking dog, I bet he's fun too. I can see him and Bear just having a ball out in the snow. The great thing about the hair on a dog is that it can be covered with ice and snow on the outside but if you wiggle you fingers into it, it's dry .

Thanks for the praise for our "Wonderdog." Some labradoodles don't have the lab's undercoat. In fact, breeders consider it a fault. But, it means he can handle any weather. Unfortunately there were no kids to romp with him in the snow this weekend.

I saw a payloader going down the street just about dark. Maybe it will be back tomorrow? The street is at least one lane wide now thanks to my neighbor and others with plows. Main street is on the city's list of cleared streets but one neighbor said it is faster to walk than drive on it. I am taking tomorrow off work and then going back on Thursday. I am very happy to say that I have shoveled a whole lot of snow and still can walk completely upright with the help of a couple of aspirins!

It says they do...

Salmonella can sicken animals that eat these products and humans are at risk for salmonella poisoning from handling contaminated pet products, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the pet products or any surfaces exposed to these products.
Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has any of these signs, please contact your veterinarian

An I bet he can be panting where you are looking for a sweater to put on. He's a very hansom dog.

I must say, Jen, that my dog is quite the dufus too. A very loveable dufus, though. There are many times that he does something really smart for him, but really ticks me off, but then it changes in something that ends up making me laugh. Prime example...Hooper and I often chase through the house playing. I will often try to hide around a corner and surprise him. One day, when it was really cold outside he was out doing his business. I put him out on a zip line when he goes out. He is SOOOO nosey about the neighbors and he ran out around the shed (there is no fence over there and he can see into their yard). At the time, the fence had a small woodpile on the side he ran on which he previously knocked over in his nosey exhuberance. He often would get "stuck" on the wood, as was the case this day. (Now keep in mind, he is like a bull in a china shop with a lot of things and can yank himself free if something catches his interest that he wants to chase. Other times, I swear he can get "stuck" on a blade of grass. If he thinks he is stuck he will just stand there and look at you then eventually start barking, one bark at a time...come save me mom.) Anyways, it was a cold snowy day and he had been out for some time. I could see his cable stretched out along the far side of the shed and it would wiggle ever so slightly. I was calling and calling his name and his cable would only wiggle a tiny bit. This was the ever so familiar "I am stuck and I can barely move" cable wiggle. I grumpily put on my boots and coat and went trudging out into the snow, calling his name as I went. Just as I was getting ready to round the corner of the shed, he came running and jumped, flying through the air with the BIGGEST grin on his face. SURPRISE, he was saying to me. He was mimicing what I would do to him in the house. I instantly started giggling and laughing at him and he was SOOOO excited, hopping around me in that goofy way they do, with a silly sort of grin on his face. Instantly, he melted my grumpiness away.

Another dufus dog alert! When I was going home today at lunch, there was a guy running down the sidewalk with his dog on a leash. Well, the dog decided to run right under his legs right before I got to them. Amazingly, the guy stayed up and you could tell by the way that the dog was acting that he was thinking that was so much fun! Probably a good thing that I couldn't read the guys mind!

The rule specifies that although devices labeled and approved exclusively for veterinary use are exempt, devices that are approved for use in both humans and animals will be taxed.
