   Balogreene  So, Ukiko has been eating off and on for a few days. Is it the DinoVite, the new wet food, the old Kibble? Who knows? Her ears,eyes, mouth, are all healthy. So, Kel went to the store, bought Beneful (the old wet food ), and Uki ate. We threw out the Iams. She is not only fussy, she is spoiled!

   Escaped commieny  Our kids self feed with dry Beneful, but when Shiloh needed growths removed, one was on his butt, so I gave him soft wet canned food, of course they thought Santa was here ! Fussy and spoiled here too, LOL So glad Uki is eating.

   Balogreene  We let our cats (4 ) self-feed. But, I'm not sure about the dog. We've had dogs who would only eat what is needed, and dogs who would eat anything in sight! I half think, if we only put out a half-cup of food,with the Beneful, and Dinovite, she might eat it as she wanted, or she would eat it all at once.

We always fed our dogs once a day until we got the greyhounds. Big chested dogs, or dogs prone to bloat, should be fed twice a day so they don't eat too much at once. We are so in the habit (and so is Ukiko ) it's just a twice a day thing.

   Balogreene  I actually hate to advertise here, but our last remaining dog, about 6, licked constantly. A year ago she almost died of an auto-immune disease. She has constant yeast infections in her ears, her eyes run and she had bad breath. One day I got DinoVite (my sister said she wondered which of us would give in first ). It is $30 for a 3 month supply. In the month she's been taking it (they say it takes 3 months to be sure ) the infection in her ear has gotten better, she no longer licks her paws constantly, her eyes no longer run, and she smells better.

She is also more active, and is hungry all the time. We are so pleased, she gets better all the time. There are some things to complain about, it is hard to measure, and you have to add water (she needs crunchy food for her teeth ). But, she is BETTER. For $120 a year, it may just be worth it. I'll let you know later, she has her yearly checkup in a couple of weeks. If they say she is better, I'll let you know it's not just us, if they tell us to stop, I'll also let you know.

   Escaped commieny  I have heard good things about DinoVite, but I put my kids on some Omega 3 from Vets Select by Vet Katy Nelson at Stop Aging Now,LLC

   BirdsNest  It's good to know when a product really works. Of course, things don't work for everyone but I would rather have some input from someone I know when trying to decide whether to buy a product or not.

   BirdsNest  Right about now is when a dog would be nice to have again, our stress levels are at an all time high. Maybe I will just go out in search of a dog to hug.

   RedWhiteBlue  My favorite show on Animal Planet are the TOO CUTE ones, either kittens or puppies...I don't care they're all CUTE!. They are the sweetest shows...but I also am getting hooked on Pit-bull and Parolees. They do a wonderful job with the pits. They really are such a sad group of dogs abused and messed up by HUMANS! I have friends that have them and they really the most affectionate and goofy and adorable dogs. Some of you may not agree but I just thought I'd say that. TeeHee.

BUT what I don't get are some of the shows that are shown on Animal Planet (TreeHouses?, Pools, etc ), anyone get it? Maybe they are running out of ideas?

   MeiDei  I'm with you on the Too Cute shows. We have friends that have pit bulls that are very friendly and loving - it's all in training & socializing - 4 legged & 2 legged animals alike : )

   RedWhiteBlue  A Pit Bull's Prayer...
I was born a pit bull,I did not ask to be. This is the life god has chosen for me. What have I done to deserve this fate, you put me in a cage and teach me to hate. I dream of a day when I get to be free, I would be so kind just wait and see. Until then I keep my dreams close to my heart, I wake up every day in hopes of a new start. I don’t want to be bad. I wasn’t born like this, but you took me from my mother and threw me in the pits. Somehow I won but I received no prize, just made it to the next night and a dog of another size. I’m not sure if it’s worth the pain that I know, but sadly I love you so this time I’ll go. I just wanted to make you happy, for I thought you were my friend but with the days passing I wish it was the end. You said this is my last fight so I can’t wait to go, I feel things will get better so maybe there’s hope. I am a little older and wish I was faster but, I will try my best for you are my master, This fight is harder than I thought, and I just can’t seem to win, the years of pain are starting to kick in. It's not looking good for me as I lay on the ground. I can’t get this one off me, and can’t make a sound, don’t let me die don’t let this be the end. Prove to me this one time that you are my friend, with my eyes I’m telling you what I need to say and with my last breath I look to you to see you turn and walk away.See I was born a pit bull and did not ask to be, but I am in a better place in heaven where I can be free.

   Escaped commieny  R W & B, that is a terrible , heartbreaking post.
My furry babies are a 35lb beagle and 85 lab, both rescues but I babysit my brothers pits next door that are the most gentle, loving girls, they even live with two cats. YOU owe me a box of tissues

   Gerty  This comes under the heading of "Critters"--black house ants to be specific.

There is something amiss with the critters who have been invading my house recently. These ants seem to have a bit more cognitive ability than I recall ants having. I mean, who ever thinks of ants doing battle with a human? Well, I never have. And who ever heard of ants jumping?? What's that all about?
I guess I've been house-bound too long from all this snow in NYS. Why else would I even consider talking about ants?
