  1. In addition to the harnesses and crates and various other ways to keep your dogs safe when you travel, the most important is to know your limits. Stop if you get drowsy. I find that closing my eyes for 15 minutes followed by a quick walk or some stretches is a pretty good pick me up.
  2. My sister posted and emailed about this. I came here to see if it was true. What a horrible thing.
  3. I super glue my own cuts. Sometimes when I'm working in my glass I'll get a slice that is a little more than a bandaid but not big enough for a doctor. Out comes the super glue. Fix the cut and don't have to leave my project. It is actually pretty common practice among glassers. I have never had the occasion to try it on my dog.
  4. Elevators don't bother Jody one bit, not even the very first time. He was fine with the movement. It didn't even bother him that everything changed on the other side of the door when it opened at the end of the ride. He took it like it was no big deal.
  5. Helen, GA is really fun. Oak Island, NC is dog friendly and at the southern end of North Carolina. Uncrowded and quiet.
  6. Hi! This is Cherrie. You might know me better as bn_here_b4, my user name on the board. Thanks for visiting Diane's dog blog and participating in the caption contest. Good luck!
  7. Jody and Bella are both crate trained. They are the first dogs I ever used crates with and are also the most well behaved and bonded dogs I have ever had. I don't think it is just due to the crate - I am a different kind of dog owner now than I was at 20 or any of the other years between then and now. However, I do believe the crates led to fewer corrections from the very beginning. Less time correcting meant more good play and training time. Really focused time that we all enjoyed. I was relaxed with them rather than constantly being on alert to keep the next bad thing from happening. Consequently, I've ended up with two mellow, laid back dogs. Another benefit is that because they didn't have to be corrected much it is a big deal to them now if I give them the Ah! Ah! It really gets their attention!
  8. Good news on Cooper. I hope Zoey comes on home too. Prayers for her safe return.
  9. How far do they live from you? Could they be heading back to their own house? Maybe it would be good to put some signs in that area and along the route between your homes. I hope they come back safely. Thoughts and prayers coming your way.
  10. Our golden was full grown when we got Jody so for a little while there was a pretty significant size difference. We had good success doing exactly what Wildflower suggested. Stop before things get out of hand and redirect them. They are so cute together. Dexter looks happy to have a little buddy.
  11. Thanks Julie. That makes me feel better! I guess I'll just watch for changes over the next couple days and take him to the vet if he gets worse.
  12. I had a sore throat and stuffed up head earlier this week. Now Jody is sneezing. He doesn't have a cough. Eating, pooping and playing are a normal. I have seen one clear "snot bubble" on his nostril. No thick or colorful discharge from nose or eyes. He is up to date on all vaccinations. Can dogs get colds? What do you do for that?
