Re: Some people make me want to scream

Thanks. And I get the same crap when I try to explain it to people too. Everyone just expects every dog to accept anyone and everything and that's just not going to be the case. It drives me crazy.

I'm glad those folks seemed to understand when you explained the dangers to them.

Some people make me want to scream

I took Dixie to the dog park today with our regular group of friends that meets up there once a week. We all arrive at about the same time (we meet up in the parking lot to walk back to the dog park together) and we all leave together. There is a total of 7 people and 10 dogs (because some of us hav...

Re: Bad Reaction or Bad Situation?

Maybe it's just me, but it doesnt sound like anything bad happened. He tried to play with the puppy. She wasn't hurt, she was just scared. That's why she cried. You would to o if someone so much larger than you did that to you. He doesn't understand that the puppy is too small to play with. That's a...

So, I thought this was too funny to not share. Dixie "sings" along sometimes to music in the car. Actually wherever we are when she gets the urge to sing along. Keith Urban's "Heart Like Mine" (off his "Fuse" album) is one of these sons that ALWAYS gets this response. :...

Re: Collar Issue

My chow girl, Tippsy, and my chow mix boy, Jasper both had rolled leather collars that I only used to hold their tags. They were the only collars that didn't mat or break the fur on their necks. My mix girl, Dixie, had a leather collar but my brothers pit mix puppy (RIP) chewed it off her neck and I...

Jasper was set free from his battle yesterday afternoon. His awful health made my decision for me when his body gave up on him... I miss him so so much. But I'll find peace in knowing he's now at peace; no more hurting, no more medications; and knowing I held him all the way to the end. He's now wit...

Re: Thinking of getting a Chow, but have toy dog. Help?

I've never had a problem with my chows and small dogs. My last purebred girl lived with a mini poodle, 3 Pomeranians, a mini schnauzer, a min pin, a chihuahua, and a Yorkie in her lifetime. She was raised with the poodle and one of the poms. We NEVER had a problem. Now I have 2 chow mixes with 3 toy...

Why why why do my dogs enjoy giving me heart attacks?

Over this past weekend, my dad, my uncle, my brother, his girlfriend, and I finally fenced in (the majority of) our backyard. It's so nice being able to just open up the door and let the dogs go do their business. However, I found out really quick Tuesday that I can NOT leave Dixie alone for even a ...

But he always made excuses (number 1 being that he already fenced in a 20ft by 20ft pen for the dogs; which the...

Re: Need advice on fear aggression related attacks.

Quite honestly, I don't know if this problem is fixable. It's not triggered by something you can really control. To me, if seems to me that it's something ingrained in your chow (probably associating the thunder as a growl, and since your spits has fought with her in the past, she thinks she's prote...

I never touch my purebred girl to walk in a heel possition. She was a puller (thought she was a sled dog) until she was about 10 y/o. Arthritis and old age slowed her down a bit. My mix boy Jasper has never really been a puller (except in public, he's curious). He mostly walks behind me. I think it'...

Re: Is it common for Chows to itch a lot?

They shouldn't itch a LOT. It very well could be allergies. My mix boy has allergies. Excess itching can and will cause bald patches.

I'd get a second opinion from another vet.
