  1. Heat Bed for Older Dog - Recommendations?

    Years ago we used a home brew kit heating pad on the bottom of the bed with towels and blankets on it for Flash. It was warm without getting too hot, and was waterproof.
  2. How gorgeous! When we had our great dane and greyhound, they would have their photo taken with a party hat on while they were eating their McDonald's cheeseburger. They both got one on each other's birthdays so they didn't miss out. As soon as I walked in the door with the cheeseburgers, they knew and did pretty sits to have their hats put on and photos taken. They also got something nice for dinner as well and extra treats. I'm not sure that they knew it was their birthday though I miss making a fuss over them.

  13. Gentle Giant Breed Recommendation!?

    I agree with the very deep pockets required for a dane (or any giant breed). Just for normal meds etc, you pay more as they require larger doses. We've had 2 danes and a greyhound, and over 13 years spent over $50K at the vets. This was due to health issues, allergies, anxiety and few operations, and palliative care for cancer. Even with that, we would not have not had the dogs in hindsight, as they were all awesome beings and brought us so much joy. If you are prepared for the possible costs, great danes are well worth it, but make sure that you talk to many people to sort out the good breeders from the bad. Greyhounds are awesome as well, although not a giant breed. ETA: Our last dane lived to 11 years and 8 months with cancer for the last 6 months or so.
  14. A dog has killed a woman in Canberra ....

    So sad and horrific. I wish the media would wait until details are confirmed, rather than reporting speculation. My heart goes out to all involved.
