I haven't been on this thread for a while. Great to see a new picture of Gracie!

We decided we are going to get another lab next summer (remember we lost Blue last October).

We want to drive out west and spread some of his ashes in the mountains where we used to take him hiking. Have to do that before we get another dog (and this year, being a tour year, it won't happen)

I'm a dog lover as well but I haven't got one at the moment. I've had one for 13 years and it's hard to have another one after he passed away so I'm surrounded by kitties.

I love the pics.

Trinx Sorry about your doggie. I know how hard it is to lose one.

Phoebe had a case of the crazies the other day.

So I have to enroll Patches in some sort of obedience training, cause what we're doing just isn't cutting it. He's still too wild to be in the house unsupervised. He's also still only 8 months old. Do you think PetSmart is a good bet or should I look for a local company?

A friend of mine worked at PetSmart. She said it really depends on the particular store and the trainers.

It totally varies. Some PetSmart's are lucky to hire really dog savvy people that have been training for years, others hire kids that have good intentions but no real experience other than taking a class. I've seen PetSmart trainers post training questions on dog boards that definitely make me think twice about ever using them. Also some places have good clubs that are priced competitively, compared to PetSmart. I look for trainers that are CGC evaluators, APDT members, and CPDT (certified pet dog trainer). If you're lucky NADOI (endorsed by the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors). PetSmart trainers may or may not have these endorsements. I steer way clear of any trainer that requires a single method and/or tool. For example, if a trainer says "everyone here must now use a choke/prong/flat/martingale collar..." I would leave. Every dog and household is different, a good trainer tailors a program to suit you and your dog, not their own agenda.

Training is a great idea. Eight months is not young to start training, but is not old to be left alone in the house. Nikon is just one year and I rarely take a shower with him free in the house! Because of his breed and their knack for chewing anything and everything, he likely will not be left alone for extended periods until he is 2 years old. A few times I've done trials but only left him out alone for 20 minutes max. He has done more damage with us being home, just running upstairs to use the bathroom, lol.

I remember my mom enrolling our late newfoundland Fiona in puppy obedience school when she was a few months old. She'd go under the chair and fall asleep. The other puppies would bark at her and she'd open one eye and go back to sleep.

I miss her.

Anyways.....


Phoebe is a very fussy eater. We've changed her food three times in the past month. One day she likes it, the next she's not a fan. She responds better to eating when we handfeed her, but I don't want her to get used to it. I've never had a problem with a puppy not eating well. She's a happy, active pup and everything is normal except for that. Advice anyone?

Also, my thirteen year old collie-shephard Lanny has a golf ball sized something on her side. It's hard. My mom and I noticed it a few days ago. It doesn't hurt her when we press it. She's acting kind of meh. Her eating habits aren't great and some days she's active, other days not so much. But I know she's thirteen, so that goes with her being up there in age. I'm just worried about what we found. We can't afford to go to the vet either.
