I had another thought re: people who are living out their dance fantasies and their dog is their for the ride. I'd say, well whatever floats their boat. I'm guessing that judges are really looking at the dog, but to those people-- who's to say? I never had this fantasy so I have no idea about it. smile

There is a Kindle app for the Mac and PC (I think).

That said, are there a lot of pictures in teamwork? If you learn this way then I'd say no. As good an offer as this is. The kindle's pictures are fair, not sure for the Mac/PC version of this.

No on that dog! Corgis are great, but there have been (I have been told) some temperament issues in some lines. You need to look for Corgis who are bred with that in mind.

You also would want to run-- not walk away from that trainer. Yikes.

I found out tcfeline only sells in Canada. Too bad, as I think I found the old feline futures.

Sorry for your loss! hug
Padfoot (one of my cats) had a serious bout of blockage. He will not eat raw, tried for about six months and he thought I was trying to poison him.

There are several options. If the raw is less than 20% of the diet, you can just feed some meat, with or without organs.

Some possibilities: make your own. I like this site: http://catinfo.org/?link=makingcatfood
You have the added benefit of having dogs who will lick the bowl. Cats are useless at this. smile
This uses easy to find ingredients for the most part. It is much cheaper than the mixes.

However, there are a couple I know of:

ht tp://tcfeline.com/

Getting your cat off of kibble is the best thing you can do for your cats diet. Bar none. Check out the catinfo site.

Behavior & Training > Cats + Noobark

This youtube video has one of the best ways of dealing with dog/cat problems I have ever seen, though I don't know who this is. It uses clicker training. If you don't use clicker training you could use this by just giving treats, though it might take longer.

You could also do the same with the cats.

However her cat is extremely bold. I would think most cats would feel more comfortable behind a barrier.

I agree with other comments re: cat trees and baby gates. It's best to have a room that the dogs are not allowed in.

I think the vest makes a lot of sense. Do you know where I can get myself one? BOL!
OTOH, I still think you should get a breed or breed mix who would not be miserable either.

People's (usually children's) epilepsy has been controlled with something like the ketogenic diet. The diet is very low in carbohydrates and higher in fat (somewhat like Atkins). It often controls epilepsy when nothing else will. OTOH that's people not dogs. But it would be interesting if that helped anyway. It wouldn't be a cheap diet, obviously. The first diet was a vegetarian diet. I don't think there is any way that would work.

I think the Ragdoll would be quite good with dogs. They are pretty docile and large and tend to be interactive. The Corgi is a great choice too. Torie has basically tried all sorts of dog sports (agility, freestyle, herding, etc.). She is good at all of them and lots of fun to work with. They are just great at training.

The Cardigan is a good choice as well. May not be quite as available as the Pem.

It isn't the only dog generally good with cats. Actually a lot will be.

I don't know that much about them, but just a plug to say I also think they are wonderful dogs. They have the typical Collie, Corgi, Aussie, sort of undercoat to my knowledge.
