    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    He's a good guy and his dogs are some of the nicest Rat Terriers I've seen.

    Invisible fences, yes or no? I may finally be moving to a place with an about an acre of land. Bunch of people have recommended them, but I'm having a tough time being convinced it's a good/reliable idea.

    Growing up we had a golden retriever who wouldn't go within a hundred feet of the fence and was terrified and an English shepherd who was so Velcro to my mother that it would take the shock so as to be able to be close to her when she went to the mailbox.

    Not useful for us.

    Good and bad. Can teach boundary respect to young dogs, but it won't prevent another animal from coming onto your property or prevent your high drive dog from busting through after another animal.

    In what situation would your dog be on your property unattended?

    Thanks, basically confirms my suspicion. She'd never be outside unattended, just worried about whether the collar would be enough of a distraction to keep her from bolting across the street if she sees a squirrel/rabbit/deer on the other side.

    I don't currently own a dog but I spotted this guy last week when doing some impromptu shopping at night time over here in Bangkok.

    is there anything wrong with giving a dog bones from the butcher? Just sectioned marrow bones. They have frozen ones at the pet store, but those goddamn bags are like $26 (for 5-6 sections).

    No. Try the big knuckle bones which should keep your dog occupied for hours. The downside is the slobbering mess that can result.

    vet visit yesterday for some shots.

    weighed in at a healthy 64 lbs.

    Doc said she's in great health and wants us to keep her around the 62-68 lb range.

    Why give shots to a healthy adult dog?

    Do a little research. There's little need for any of that.

    they're required for some of the training classes that we're going to do. Otherwise the only thing I really care about is flea/tick for whenever we go hiking or exploring upstate.

    There's a bunch of contagious stuff around, so it makes sense.

    When's the last time a dog came down with rabies in NYC?

    Even in a group situation we never let dogs touch each other or share water bowls.
