Poodles can be colored with food coloring/Easter egg dye, chalk (paler effects) or try Manic Panic from a beauty supply store. Poodles are dyed all the time.

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with giving dogs shots yourself (if not illegal in your state) AND done correctly. The pup should have had 2-3 puppy shots when you got him. Not just one. Breeders fault totally.

I have 8 indoor/outdoor rescued cats and 5 dogs. Even if I took them to the mobile clinic or local SPCA it would be $25 each for vaccines NOT including rabies. I can give them all the 'regular' shots for $3-$6 each. You do the math.

Here's Remi's: Your dog is an Spontaneous, Gamma and High Activity type which we call the Investigator. The Investigator is a loveable, submissive, funny, even silly character that is happiest when obeying its leader or involved in freeform activity.

This fits him to a 'T'!!

Choosing the Right Dog > help, I need a good small hiking dog

Whatever you decide, go for a short-haired breed. Or you will be combing small twigs, leaves, and burrs out of that coat for HOURS!!

We went camping 2 weeks ago & took my sons dog (Aussie-ACD mix very short coat) and my toy poodle. NOT FUN spending a couple hours after the hike picking burrs out of Remi's coat.

I have never been to a regular vet for spaying/ neutering. I've always gone to clinics for these procedures I have had over 12 cats done and five dogs with no problems. I don't need the pain medications -- dogs and cats seemed fine after 24 hours -- at least they're jumping around like they are

I had a Shih Tzu that died last December @ 14. Around 11 or 12 she would growl when asked to move off the couch. She snapped at my son, whom she grew up with (she was a year younger), a couple of times when he pushed her over with his foot.

I just attributed it to old age. We were careful moving her and learned to always give her fair warning when we needed her to move or do something. I have been around a lot of older relatives and know how crotchity, grumpy, and testy old people get -- it must be the same for dogs. We just made allowances for Cleo's testiness and moved on.

Choosing the Right Dog > How did you find "the breed"?

When I was 4-7 my family had 2 poodles. One was great, one was shy and nervous.

Then we were dogless until I was 11. We had Shelties then -- one was great, one was shy and nervous.

When I was 17-18 I had a part-time job at a mom & pop pet store. I was in HEAVEN. The pet store itself wasn't a good one looking back; the owners bred/raised several types of puppies to sell (Rat Terriers, Poodles, Chi's) and also bought litters or 'left-over' pups from BYB's. The owner managed to get ahold of an entire litter of Shih Tzu's in 1972 -- this was the year they were allowed in the AKC so were still very rare.

I FELL IN LOVE with a little mostly white male with a black circle around one eye. I wanted him SO badly but my folks said NO. The owner even was going to give him to me if he could use him as a stud when he bought a female.

I vowed then and there to own one someday. When I was in college & moved to an apartment I finally was able to look for a puppy and there was a Shih Tzu male available from a breeder. So I bought Benji for $100 and since 1974 I have ALWAYS had at least ONE Shih Tzu, if not several (right now I have 3).

I have tried other breeds through the years also: GSD's, Aussies, Catahoula's. Now I have an Aussie/ACD mix and a poodle too. But Shih Tzus are one breed I'll never be without. They're just sturdy, funny, cute, fluffy, small dogs that are equally at home camping/hiking or on the couch chillin'.

Puppy Place > Help me pick a carrier (sling)

I just got a sling off EBay but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Remis only 5# though. Look up 'little rubi' carriers. It was very reasonable. Maybe a sling made for babies would work also? You could sew a short leash clip to it.
