i agree, i forgot to mention that this dog has already been spayed and in good health. I actually got my answer today, and this rescue will let me adopt her if i wish as soon as the first time we meet today! (I'll be honest I'm relieved i didn't have a house check, just kind of intimidating especially if your house isn't the nicest looking place) i am beyond excited! I really hoping that the meeting goes well because this dog is the best match i've seen for what I am looking for. (including age, gender, breed, size, looks, socialization, background). can't wait to meet her. happy dance

so I don't know how many hits this will get before tomorrow but it's the biggest dog forum I know about so here's it goes,
I'm meeting a rescue pup tomorrow (finally! yay!) I haven't been able to ask the lady this question because they are busy volunteers and so communication is slow.
but I was thinking about it a lot and started to wonder if I might be bringing her home as soon as tomorrow (if she's a match).
My application was processed and the lady has been telling me that we seem like a great match for the dog.
They haven't said anything about a home-check, but their website does say they are particular about where the animals go.

I wanted to know how other people's experience went, were you able to adopt after meeting for the first time? or did you have to take additional steps?

Raw Food Diet > Feeding Small Dogs Correctly

chicken wing drumettes are good small version of drumstick, plus the other part of the wing.

2 oz isn't so bad if you have a 5 lb or less dog.
my dog is 9 pounds and she eats ~3 oz a day. she's a foodie so I always have long lasting chews around for her and I let her keep the raw bones that she couldn't finish. she's gnawing on one right now. they aren't messy anymore since she already stripped the meat off. and I don't worry about them sitting out because she's a dog and they eat raw bones that keep buried in the ground. so I don't mind them sitting out in the house.

you can feed more on some day and less on other.
start at 2 oz and try feeding more and she if it's okay. if they start to gain weight fast, it's too much.

you can add fresh veggies to their meal to help them feel full without adding extra calories/fat

Raw Food Diet > Insects?!

my previous dog liked to eat cicadas, all the parts but the wings. cicadas are big too. and they would be buzzing around. I don't know how she caught them. She was an outside dog. a small outside dog, around 14 pounds. and she ate cicadas!

my current dog won't eat bugs. I always sic her on crickets and grasshoppers and those gross little geckos but she just paws at them and will spit things out if they feel funny.

I needed a good dog conditioner for my dog who has dry skin and coat most the time.
I was surprised that avoderm didn't list ingredients on their product. Why would you buy something without knowing what it is?

I emailed them and they won't give it out. They will tell you if something specific is in it but they won't say what, they will just say "some of the things you listed are"

I want to know what percent is actual good stuff and not just water. So I know what I am paying for.

I understand the whole keeping your recipe a secret or whatever they think they are doing. but can't they just put a patent on it and be like every other product and tell the customers their ingredients?

I really had high hopes for their product but I don't want to use products blindly. and I'm frustrated that they won't even give a paying customer information about the product.

anyway. anybody else been through this at all?
anyone use avoderm's shampoo/conditioner?
anyone to suggest other good dog conditioners? really good stuff. not mostly water.

Puppy Place > Puppy Peeing

what everyone else said. throw a party when she goes pee outside. take her outside A LOT so she has plenty of chances to go.
dogs have no sense that they should go pee outside. you have to set up a giant reward in order to encourage them to go outside. something they will remember. that's the only way to get them to start trying to go outside to pee.

Puppy Place > I'm Really Done... Puppy Biting!

this behavior is all completely normal. this is what puppies do.
you just have to be consistent in teaching her good behaviors and also she should be confined when not being watched. if your pens and gates aren't working at keeping her confined and away from things she should not have, find something that does work.

Bully sticks are great for teething puppies, the dogs love them and they last a long time. Stop letting the pup have inappropriate things and put something in her mouth to chew on already.
you can also give a big frozen carrot.

having a puppy is like having a baby, you just need to watch it all the time.

Small Dogs > Need help determining her breed? Please...

I'm so sorry for your loss frown

I looked at her pics and she reminds me a lot of my dog, who is a dachshund chihuahua mix. She had the arched back, same face, same ears.
Did she like to tunnel in the covers, sit/stand up on her hand legs ? chiweenies are masters at tunneling.
