Four years ago? shock

My how time has flown... I actually didn't know they'd ended it, either. I just haven't been able to get on much.

Not necessarily bigger. Pip Squeak and Chi Chi's mother was 45 lbs and they're only 10 and 15 lbs. Meepster, Pippie's brother, is 25 lbs. Size when one parent is small and the other is big is... literally unpredictable in my experience. You could end up with a big dog, a small dog, or a medium dog. Your dog kinda looks like Princess in the face. Princess had a pit bull parent. All her brothers look all pit bull. She herself though doesn't look very bully except for small hints of it.

I think your dog does have hints of terrier and Chihuahua. What kind of terrier, I cannot say. She looks like a regular heinz 57. So, it's really hard to tell. She's super adorable, whatever she is.

I don't think you guys understand how mental illnesses work. You aren't just going to develop a mental illness because you're in a stressful environment.

So much this.

Some people do, sure. But it is because of a genetic predisposition. It has recently been decided that the age old question "Nature or nurture" has an answer: Both. Yes, many celebrities develop mental illnesses. But there are many more (perhaps more) that do not. Of course, the media doesn't target them as often. Because that just wouldn't be interesting to the general populous would it? (NOne of it interests me. I'd rather keep track of my own life) Many normal people develop mental illness, too. But we don't make the news (bipolar II wink ).

People predisposed will handle a stressful environment differently than someone who is not. That and environment and situations are experienced differently by everyone. This is why siblings - both raised in the same environment - are usually very different, and why one might have a mental illness and one might not. No one chooses to be mentally ill. I speak from experience, it is not fun. Schizophrenia is one of the most misunderstood, and many people feel like it is a life sentence when they are diagnosed. It shouldn't have to be, and they shouldn't have to feel like that. But they do. I'm not saying anyone here has bashed Amanda Bynes (or anyone) for having one, just trying to explain it in psych major terms (but probably failing as I don't articulate well).

I love dogs. For me, they are therapeutic. Having them around has really helped me, aided me, provided me comfort where I could not find any of it. But I am capable of handling them and taking care of them. As many of us are. In Amanda's case, it might not be wrong to question whether she can or cannot. But it is not up to us to decide. I know she did not intentionally douse her Pomeranian. What concerns me is the fact that the dog was doused at all. I just hope Amanda is doing okay now. I don't keep up with the media, so I don't know.

If price is a concern, WalMart carries a brand called Pure Balance as Firefly said already. Sandy did terribly on it, but she has a plethora of sensitivities and allergies. So, it's not good to judge a food based on her reaction to it (bol). Sweeney does okay on it, though. Not his best, but he did well enough on it. Didn't feed it long before removing it out of the rotation, but it's got a lot of bang for your buck cost wise.

Lassie Natural Way is far from perfect. Got 3 stars on Dog Food Advisor. It could do without the beet pulp and all the rice. But it's far better than most brands of the same price. It's really cheap for the quality it is. It is pretty much just... average quality. Better than like, Kibbles N Bits. But not the best. It's affordable and I've seen it at Dollar General. I buy it for my mom in bulk for her dogs as I find it better than her feeding Alpo.

Rachel Ray Zero Grain is decent. It has a couple questionable ingredients, but none of the icky stuff her other dry food lines contains (like menodione). It does have peas and beet pulp, though. But it's probably a better bet than Sportmix.

Those are the only cost efficient brands I can think of off the top of my head. I've bought them for my mom from time to time to feed her dogs. Her dogs do well on them and seem to love them. Good luck. I hope you find something that works for you.

My mom always told me that when she started training dogs back in the 80's, the first trainer she went to used choke chains. She had a Pomeranian. Of course. Most of her dogs before Cinnamon were Poms. She went to one class. One with her dog. After seeing how horrified her dog became on the choke chain, she never returned.

And I can't say I blame her.

I don't like choke chains on big dogs. The idea of using one on a little dog... especially a breed notorious for trachea problems? That scares me. cry

Looks Pomeranian to me.

Sometimes long haired Chihuahuas and Pomeranians look very similar.

Yorkshire Terrier > Help! My 4lb Yorkie had babies in May can she be pregnant now?

If she was pregnant, I'd imagine you'd know by now.

Sorry, Dogster's not as active as it used to be. Was she pregnant? Is she okay? I hope that, if she was, she was seen by a vet and is doing okay now. I don't want to sound preachy, but do try to get her spayed or him neutered ASAP. Puppies are hard enough without the fact that small dog pregnancies can often be risky. Some small dogs (and breeds like bulldogs) even require c-sections from time to time.

I wish you and your yorkie baby all the best. flowers

Also, yes, twice in a year is way too soon. Most reputable breeders will go years between litters and often only breed a dam once or twice. Too many litters puts a lot of strain on a dam's body.

Yes, you should treat everyone.

Often, if one pet has worms, chances that the other/s do are very high.

Much of what you hear about chicken bones being dangerous is regarding cooked chicken bones. Cooked chicken bones are very dangerous. They splinter and break easily. Raw chicken bones, however, are much different.

If you cook... the meat...

Wouldn't that be a home cooked diet? I'm sorry. I just can't get past that one part.
