    They're not the only ones who were quite relaxed!

    I was feeling uptight until I viewed your video. Many thanks for sharing! Now I feel like singing and no one will sing with me. Used to have a cat that would sing any time I did. All we needed...

    reply to CassiesMom...

    I have to agree with CassiesMom, not just on pit bulls (and, yes, I've known some good pitties) BUT one must be careful in adopting ANY dog from a shelter unless they know the truth about the dog's...

    Sources of impetigo info

    I lived on a farm and impetigo came in with a batch of new chicks we had ordered (or so it seemed). Several handlers, including me, got it. We treated the sores with ammoniated mercury 5% and they...

    Your love of animals can be extended....

    I admire your sensitivity to the suffering of the animals.

    As you go through life, you may find that administering to the young, old, handicapped, frail, etc. of your own species who also suffer...

    A bit of encouragement for you

    Mousie...er, Abigail, it takes guts to admit when you're wrong and learn from your mistakes.

    I, too, had the 'pushed ahead in school syndrome' but it wasn't for an IQ thing...just my age/friends...

    Sympathy...and a little different view of things...

    So very sorry you lost your baby. As a Mom who has lost several, allow me to suggest you do your grieving now (including papa to be) instead of trying to distract yourself from the pre-occupying...
  11. If you love your dog or cat, you must see this....

    I just viewed and listened to the most eye-opening video I've seen in ages. It's about commercial dog food, even the most expensive and 'naturally good' ones...and the effect they have on your pet. ...

    Another possibility...

    Have you had her checked for some less common forms of worms and other things like that? Not all worms show up in fecal cultures at all stages of their (worm) development.

    Good luck!

    I'm glad you've discovered the major problem. Often happens when plants are moved from nurseries and crowded together in the process.
