Re: Male Chow (adopted 8/25)- San Francisco CA

Yes...Thank you, I talked to them. My home is not a good fit for that particular chow -- I'm still looking for the "right fit" -- a senior chow without major health issues seems to feel right...kinda like his or her new mom... I have two tie outs that I used with BearII when he wanted to b...

Re: My chow will let no one touch her!!! Please help

I understand this dilemna completely. I empathize. I've had Bear2 now for a year and a half, a rescue dog as well whom I was told was 3 yo, actually 5, now like 6-1/2 yo. His hair was all shorn when I got him. I'm not sure it was ever allowed to grow out. His hair has grown back but the its like the...

yeah...I'm learning the incremental/patience approach with Bear too. He's growing his fur out finally, and he's looking pretty ragged where it hasn't. The matts are biggest on the backs of his lower legs, and since he has one leg that he really doesn't like to have touched, its ...slow work. He like...

I think we live in a fear-based society anymore. People FEAR rather than look, feel and deal. My cats are a perfect example of what is possible.

thanks J72, layla and Jeff... It all makes sense to me as when I first heard it. Chows are from a rather warm climate, or can be, and it makes sense that there is a certain adaptation that has occurred. I make an effort to keep Bear2 brushed, though his underbelly is still not as accessible as I wou...

Some of you know that I am moving north to Alaska in a month or so, in the heat of the summer. I will eventually get to where Bear2 will be golden, but on the way, prairie country is inevitable, no matter the latitude.
