• If you share a bed with your dog, do you worry they might fall off it?

    Best answer: Any dog we've ever had was NOT allow to sleep in bed with us. They can see things better then you in the dark, but you could have a night light near the floor in the room if you feel better about the dog seeing.

    Best answer: There is no "should" about it.
    Its up to the dogs owner what they think is the best way to go about this issue.
    Sometimes if an owner is very upset and displays too much negative emotion it may upset the dog who will sense the owners distress and in that case its probably best if the owner is not with the dog when its put to sleep.
    However, they can get sedative tablets or a pre- op injection from the vet to give their dog prior to being put to sleep that will make the dog drowsy and more unaware of what is happening around it.
    I sedate my dogs with ACP tablets and then have the vet come to my house and put them to sleep in their own bed. I always stay with them right until the vet does the sad deed.
    When a vet puts a dog to sleep its very quick and dignified and not as upsetting as you may imagine it to be (in 98% of cases) as the dog just goes to an everlasting sleep and looks very peaceful.
    However, no one should feel guilty if they don`t want to be with their dog to the very last.
    Hundreds of dogs are anesthetised at the vets for operations every day and do not have their owners with them at the time.
    Only difference is that dogs having operations wake up again, whereas dogs being put to sleep do not. The initial procedure is about the same though.

    Best answer: You have says you"recently" met him. How would you expect him to.make a choice like that? Has he proposed to you?

    If you and Dan were to continue to see one another, and then become more serious, this may be a question to pursue.

    I also think when Dan visits you, Nahlah should stay elsewhere. That is your turf, and you should have the say, in that case.

    But, you and Dan have a major difference between your interests and desires. Maybe, Dan's response should have been, "If we get serious, we can discuss the topic. Nahla is an important part of my life and I can make no predictions/promises".

    I would consider trying to get used to the dog, and dogs in general. But, you might also consider keeping an eye out for a guy who doesn't have a dog, because you already know where Dan stands.

    It's a two-edged sword. You and Dan are new. I would see how things go. Is he trying to help you get used to Nahla, or just pushing her on you? I wouldn't commit, just yet.

They want her back but we want to keep her now. She didn’t have tags but the neighbor says she’s microchipped.

    My girlfriend wants me to get rid of my dog. We have been together for a year and a half. I’ve had my dog for over 5 years. My dog was always decently well-behaved, except for some separation anxiety issues. When I moved in with my girlfriend a year ago, his behavior went downhill, and has not improved. He pees and poops in the house, he doesn’t listen, etc. My girlfriend wasn’t much of a dog person in the first place, but now she is completely fed up. We just moved into a new house, and tonight he peed all over the floor. She flipped out and basically threatened to leave. Or to start spending all her time away from home. I understand her frustration completely, I really do. I am very frustrated and at my wits end with him as well, but I love him. I love her as well of course. This is breaking my heart and I feel completely torn. I honestly don’t know what to do. Help!

    Best answer: None - unless breeding on a large scale, you DO NOT make money breeding. Troll.

    Add - Was a time when the Government, thinking they'd be helping poor Welsh farmers, suggested they bred dogs - and so caused the birth of the Welsh Puppy Farmers. IF you are genuine and I'm sorry I still doubt that, you'd realise that buying in two dogs to eventually breed together isn't the way to go. Both would have to have pedigrees that 'clicked', on paper at least. And BOTH would need to be tested, Hips and Elbows scored when old enough = outlay too. Nobody should be breeding for income - they should be breeding with the improvement of their chosen breed in mind. Having two compatible dogs under the same roof, would, unless you buy mature stock = outlay, be pretty unlikely. We bought our foundation b itch years ago, with the intention of breeding her with our second (male) hound. By the time she'd matured (we got her at 5 months) and taken her Championship title, I'd learnt a thing or two about what was good, and what wasn't, and aborted the original idea, taking her to a nice American-bred male I'd seen at a Specialty show (this was overseas). It may look as if people must make money from selling puppies, but provided they are doing it right, from buying in top quality foundation stock (and not at 8 weeks because at that age they could be anything) your outlay is probably going to wipe out most of any profit. C.Section (if it goes pear-shaped), feed, electricity/heating and your time ...... it all adds up. We only had the occasional litter - for the next generation - and were happy if we got a couple of promising puppies at the end.
