There's other that can be infectious, if they smell another dogs poop like Giardia.

My dog gets rabies, parvo, Hepatitis, leptospirosis, distemper, paraflue and kennel cough.

 

Do a blood titer test on your dog and you'll be surprised on how much antibody he carries, rabies included. Most vets are putting dogs on a three year protocol.

They have a fixed schedule, so he doesn't get everything every year.

You can do at home titers with a swab these days. Most counties will take them. In general, a dog should carry a high enough titer to parvo to never need a shot after year one, and likewise with rabies.

We do knuckle bones and lamb femurs. I don't like the marrow bones because it is just about the fat and not chewing the bone. He will chew a knuckle bone for hours, probably until he passes out. The bone shits the next day are hilarious too. You don't get bone shits from marrow bones.

who scheduled NationalDogDay on WomensEqualityDay? My facebook feed was full of awesome dog pictures, and then the one feminist pretending to flex her muscles. Kind of hilarious.

We got her over a year ago. Our neighbor found her running around in our neighborhood with another dog. She was about 3 months old at the time.

Any advice on a growly dog who doesn't like to cuddled. I know I know, but I have a wife who was hoping for a cuddly dog. She is a rescue and of no particular breed, just a third world mutt (saved her in baja). Issue: Whenever she is laying down she doesn't like your head anywhere near her body or if you put any sort of weight on her.

This all sounds dandy, but she is around a slew of nieces and nephews during the holidays, and I would like for this to not be an issue. She is 8 months and around 38 pounds.

Management. You can't convince her to like being cuddled, and its a lot of trust to think she won't get pissed off.

random dog post. I met some really first rate pooches the other day. The male was a Bull Mastiff with a head like a goldfish bowl. The female was a Bull Mastiff/Fila cross. Nice Brindle colour, not over-sized at all. Sporty looking almost. Square head but not too cinder block like. And sweet as can be. Her owner said she was stubborn and willful but was growing out of it. Makes me want another dog.
