  1. I'm so sorry for your loss.
  2. I got mine from the vet and then ordered them from amazon--however, I have also done, at the direction of my vet, the following--get powdered glucomsamine used for horses in a feed store--like Tractor supply. Sprinkle several tablespoons on top of their food and/or mix it in. I had my doubts, but my then-aging malamute responded beautifully within a few weeks. The change in his gait was visible, he was pretty pain free from his arthritis until he really was near the end. I have a 6 year old BC now and I am going to go try and hunt the powder down as I do not relish trying to get my little picky eater to down a pill.
  3. Oh my, she looks exactly like my boy! Beautiful.

    I'm so sorry. They leave such a hole in our hearts.
  5. Google Musher's Secret. Its the bag balm for working dogs.
  6. I'm very sorry for the loss of your friend.

  8. I have used Rescue Remedy and DAP plug ins early on with our greyhound and they did seem to have a good effect. We coupled this with some desensitizing of alone time, doing short periods of time alone followed by rewards for good behavior and building up after that for his separation anxiety. Doesn't hurt to try. I was also advised to use a food with a lower protein content--kibbles, if you feed them, with a higher protein content can cause what looks like a higher level of anxiety in some dogs. Worked wonders for my grey. Good luck.
  9. I'm so sorry. A beautiful tribute for your beautiful girl.
  10. Benny is exercised first thing in the morning and a couple of times at night when we are home. On the weekend, a few more ball plays--that is his thing, ball plays. He seems fine with a morning and evening exercise time, but I enjoy, when I have time, to be outside with him a little more. When he's not playing, he doesn't require "attention"--what he really likes is just to be with me or, preferably, both of us, in the same room or the car. We don't take him everywhere--its too hot to take him in the car in the summer everywhere and too cold in the winter. But we take him from time to time if we are out just for a drive. Otherwise, he sleeps most of the time, or at least lays nearby and rests. And surely, he is plotting something during those quiet times...he is a border collie after all!
