WoofTastic Books FeatureIf you have a Lab, you know that in your dog’s opinion there is no such thing as too much food. Case in point: we were watching our neighbor’s dog, Tilly, this weekend and Shelby would stand by, watching and waiting, until Tilly was done eating so she could lick Tilly’s empty bowl and get every last morsel. But, just because your dog doesn’t think there’s such a thing as too much food doesn’t mean you shouldn’t know better. Of course, you’ve probably been told this by your vet, but it is so...

Preparing for a Canine EmergencyRecently, I’ve been writing about some considerations for flooring in your house if you have a dog. This has been top of my mind as we work on our fixer-upper, and I know many other people aren’t sure what to choose when it comes time to change or re-do the floors in their houses.

Would you know what to do if there was an emergency with your dog? I was just reading an article about bloat and it is really scary. It made me realize there are lots of ways I should be prepared for a canine emergency, but I’m not right now. So, I made a list of some questions that would be good for any dog owner to ask their vet. I also think it is really important to keep the medical records handy as well the directions to the local animal hospital. We go on vacation to the same place every summer, and I got thinking that I...

All have been big dogs:

Cheasapeke Bay - good swimming companions, don't want to get out of the water! I don't think I would get another one, you only can own so many dogs at one time!
Labrador - happy dog, they sure shed alot!, again just not my style.
Golden Retriever - - bad health, all our goldens have died from cancer! Much too heartbreaking! You just get where you don't want to cry anymore! My first "own" golden was an awesome agility dog, he could climb anything!
Would own another one, if their health improves.
Alaskan Malamute - Love them to pieces! I have had bad luck with temp
