What a great community of Chow lovers!!! Judy you've sown a seed into this site! I think you've got alot of people on board to help. Also I was thinking that maybe you could add a short 'poem' or 'personal quotes' between the chapters/stories. There are so many beautiful chows on this site too, the ...

Yep! Lou was right on the money! everyone knows about chocolate being toxic, but what you have to remember is it's the amount /to the size of the dog! One choc.chip cookie isn't gonna kill your chow/ however the chocolate is still toxic to them! Same applies to Grapes and Onions If your not sure, do...

Hi all, I forgot to ask! The one bad thing that Tucker keeps doing is chewing the corner of my area rugs!(mostly for attention) But does anybody know of anything that works that I could put on them? And he seems to chase his tail alot in the morning, I think it might be out of boredom too, or is it ...

Hi Xueshuxin I understand your anger! Just because HuanHuan is a mix bred not a purebred is no need to give HuanHuan up! My dog is a mixed breed and actually I prefer that!

Hi, Eating and Sleeping were Bear's favorite hobbies!(we called him a bear-rug) I did'nt get Bear until he was 2 so I don't know what he was like as a puppy. But Tucker seems to have quite a bit of chow behavior in him even though to look at him most would think he was a purebreb black Lab. (But he'...

Hi Jess, Neat picture of the tongue! You could try this! First make sure you thoroughly clean the crate out! Twice if nesessary! Then throw in a small handful of his food ( 5-6 Pieces) Tell him "Crate" and let him go in and eat them! Then let him come out and praise him! Then take him outside to go ...

Get him in to see the vet right away!!! Worms can wreak havock on a puppy even kill him if it's really bad! He should give him an oral dose of 'Drontal'' then give you some 'pyrantel pamoate' to give him about two weeks later.Some dewormers only work on certain types of worms. good luck Leigh

I agree Chowlover, I think socialization is key in any dog, but especially chows, even if they don't come to like strangers they do have to learn to tolerate them, and Growling is a big NO-NO! So I will have to continue to expose him to as much as possible (slowly of course)! Reward for good behavio...
