My Yuki turned 9 this year and has been slowing down. We dealt with some pretty rough joint pain earlier in the year and he has done pretty well since. This weekend, he was climbing the walls, as were my 3 & 5 year old. We all went to the park, where the boys could play in the soccer field with...

Chipmunks, Chipmunks, Chipmunks....
So it was a nice summer day, when I suddenly picked up the scent of a chipmunk. Even though I am 15 1/2 years old, my hearing isn't very good, but I sure can see and I sure can smell. This is how we wait.....

Children's Benadryl for 10 week puppy shots
I have a 9 week old Cavachon (about 6-7 lbs) that needs to get routine puppy vaccines next week. The vet told me to give her 2.0 ml of Children's Benadryl prior to coming in for shots. I am concerned about giving her Benadryl due to her age. What is best - to forgo Benadryl and risk an allergic reaction...

I'm hand raising two 3 week old puppies and am needing some thoughts on how to teach them to drink from a dish. I've been bottle feeding them for nearly 2 weeks but one of the pups is losing interest in the bottle and can sometimes take him twice as long as the other to eat. He spends a good...
