Re: Another canine quality-of-life improvement

I've only put mine in for the weekend. I notice when I bring her home she drinks tons of water and immediately has to go to potty. Makes me wonder if they really tend to her when shes there. Also sleeps alot the first day home. I guess she can't sleep with all the dogs barking.

Quarter pounders w/ cheese

As the population density goes up in many retirement areas, animals adversly effected. In our town in NC single family houses are being razed and replaced by large condos, townhouses, etc. A few acres used to support a few houses and lots of pets. Now those few acres support dozens of families and no yards for pets. No place to run, rest, or poop . Enter the "bag it" ordinance. Two of our neighbors found new homes for their dogs. These "planned communities" need more planning.

Re: Another canine quality-of-life improvement

I took a small nibble of a 3dog cookie from the local bakery...not bad, but not great. My friend bought cookbooks for dogs and made some of her own cookies. The recipes had lots of wheat germ and butter if I recall, plus occasional carob powder or peanut butter. The "creme" fillings and toppings were yogurt-based I believe.

For having a dog without owning one, the local ASPCA shelter recruits foster families for helping injured animals recover after vet treatment and raising orphaned newborns. You could also become a trainer for a seeing-eye dog, but I think the waitlist is long and the requirements very strict.

I like other people's dogs, but I don't want the commitment of taking care of one myself. Too much work. Cats require much less attention and training, so I prefer to own a cat although at the moment I'm enjoying allergy-free lonely living.
