The chihuahua was brought into the front yard with no fence with the owner as he mowed and he left her outside after he was done.

A friends Chihuahua got killed by a loose husky yesterday. The chihuahua was left alone off leash in the front yard completely unattended. A husky got loose a couple of doors down and came down and killed it. In my opinion, both owners are wrong. I do feel bad for my friend, but feel it should have been avoided.
Just curious what everyone else thinks, should the husky be put down? Or otherwise dealt with?

It's been my fear that something like this would happen to my husky. So I am very careful to never let her slip out. She has a couple of times, but I'm lucky she likes going for rides, because I've always been able to coax her into the car.

Dog Health > Hernia after surgery

Stryder

Stryder had surgery 3 weeks ago to remove a tumor and popped a couple internal stitches and caused a hernia. They went back and fixed it a week ago, now tonight I noticed the bulge is back. He's having prostate problems and really has to strain to pee. Can this have caused him to pop his stitches again or perhaps both times?
We have been as careful as we can with him lifting him up and down off of furniture and he's been in a cone since the surgery.

Dog Health > Mass in abdomen

Stryder

I just want anybody's thoughts on what to expect or your experience. Stryder was having problems going to the bathroom so I took him to vet today. She did some X-rays and a rectal exam and said he has a large mass that is pushing his colon and bladder to the side. They did a catheter on him which gave him instant relief. they did some blood testing that came back normal. She suggested to get an ultrasound done. But since it is the weekend she put him on some steroids and antibiotics to hopefully give him relief for a little while. I can feel a baseball size lump in his belly. He's neutered, so she said that prostrate cancer is unlikely.
I'm also wondering how much an ultrasound for a dog (about 30 lbs) might cost?

We bought the let's go pet walker off of amazon. It was cheaper, more compact and less complicated looking than the other ones I thought. Have had it 2years and still use it with both my husky and German shepherd.

Sports & Agility > Good body condition for an athletic dog.
Spencer

disc dog

Thanks for everyone's input. I think I might cut back his portions just a bit and see how he does. He's always more eager for frisbees than food anyways. I'm just not used to seeing skinny dogs unless they have been neglected, not because they are in good shape. We just finished our big competition of the year, so I really want to focus on getting him in tip top shape and learning new tricks.

Spencer is doing the disc dog thing. Lately when we've seen other dogs in the sport, lots of them are so thin their rib cages are showing. Spencer is skinny, but not that thin. My question is how thin is too thin? I don't know if we should be trying to lose a little weight or if those other dogs are just too thin. My main pic of him is the most current. I'm going to try to start conditioning him a little more so he won't tire out so fast, but want to make sure weight is not an issue.

Siberian Husky > When to start walking?

Hi Yuna! Welcome to dogster. I know how crazy/obnoxious husky pups can be. Mine was, for sure. For the most part, I know you are supposed to wait until their 3rd round of shots at about 4 months old before taking them to other pet populated areas. If you have the money and could get her in a puppy class, they usually allow over 8 weeks old as long as you are started on their shots. I would definitely say we benefitted from that. It's important that they socialize at her age too so they won't be afraid of new things as they get older. Take her on car rides and into places that allow dogs. As for inside activities, go ahead and start on some obedience and even fun tricks, Huskies are very smart. Another occupier we did was using toy food dispensers like the kong wobbler to make food time take longer and make her think about it. We also used the classic kong for extra treats, like peanut butter or yogurt. And I dont remember you mentioning anything about a crate, but we used a crate and blocked in area for her at a young age. That saved our carpet, but unfortunately not the wall and base trim. She still is even at 2 1/2 because she gets bored easy and tries to find new things to play with while we're gone if she not in her area.

That's what we did with ours. There are plenty of other ideas in older posts as well. Good luck.

Check the food and nutrition forum. Many dogsters think taste of the wild is not good for a puppy. I started feeding my pups TOTW after they were a year old. We love it, but were told to wait, but don't remember the reasons.
