Hearthworm tablets last for 45 days. They make you give your dog once a month because it's easier to remember. You can go out and have some fun.

Solid gold is a good food. I don't know much about the grain free in the one you are using tho. If you read the ingredients you will find things like corn, soy, potatoe, millet and others. There's some dogs that do well on non grain free food. If your dog is doing well on this food I'd stick to it.
I have 6 dogs and I feed 3 different type of food according to their need. Some have grain free and some have with grains. You go with what works for you. I think you made a great choice.

I agree with fantastic four. Fostering doesn't harm the dogs. It's not worst than people that have their dog getting doggy sat. It's actualy the best way in making the transition between the new home from the old home. I would go to a rescue.

I would really think of trying to make things works with both. You have to consider that your dog is a senior and that seniors doesn't fare well in new environements. They can take a year and over to get used to their new place. If you don't have to do it please don't. I don't think I would let a guy decide whether I keep or not my dogs. If my boyfriend was to no like or my dog to not like my boyfriend I'd get rid of the boyfriend. I know I would because one already asked me to choose between him and my pets because he was alergic to them. Well I choosed the pets over him and I broke up with him no longer after this.
Consider any option you have.

Behavior & Training > 4 Month old scared of other dogs!

You have to introduce other dogs to her gradualy and not in a dog park. Go slowly with new friendly dogs. There's some meetup groups that people make up that you can attend with your dog. There's might be puppy groups available too.
I hope this help.

Behavior & Training > Emma\'s going back to the Humane Society
Taco

I LOVE water!!!

I might be wrong but I think your dogs are fighting over the alpha dog position. They must feel Adrienne slowing down. Adrienne must have somewhat protected Nikki to be second and now that's she's slowing down Emma have the door slightly opened for her to cimb to the top. Her way to get there is to beat Nikki in her position. This is my understanding of the situation.
You will need a behaviorist more than obedience lessons to deal with this. And if you find one that could be lots of work to be done on all three dogs.
Best of luck in any of your decision.

Rescue, Adoption & Happy Endings > I am interested in fostering but...

Taco

I have fostered a couple of dogs and I thought it was great. Now I do doggy sitting. With the shelter I didn't had to pay for the food or anything else. With the rescues it depend. Some I offered to feed the fosters at my own fee but the medical costs were theirs.
The dogs learn to deal with the separation. It never caused my dogs any problem when a dog leave. They are very happy when they come back tho. When my fosters get adopted I offer a doggy sitting service to all the adoptants if they need it at a lower cost. Two of my former foster come back to be sitted here.
I see fostering as teaching the dog what it is like to live in a family and so they learn better house manners and they become more adoptable.
A dog I fostered from the shelter had a blader infection from the shelter stress. She cleared it up under my care as it was much better for her.
Kudos to you for wanting to help your local shelter and the dogs.
Check out with your shelter to see what the policies are as all of them are different.

I hope you will find another foster soon. Can't you contact the rescue to have her moved out of your house?

There's people out there for senior dogs.
Have you posted some add for her? She might be just lost???
There's also the breed specific rescue option. I don't know what you have in your area but a rescue might be able to take her in.
Good luck.
