Dog Socks? (And other dog questions.)

So I've been asking about dog ownership, and got advice here (among other places) which led me to sign up to foster a dog. This is Huggy, my 5 year old foster mutt (though she's clearly got quite a bit of Rottie in her). She has a host of problems and she will be with me for a while. As a result, I have a host of questions. Can you answer some of them? (You are not my vet-- I have a good vet. ) [more inside]

Help me be creative with my old dog's diet.

Our dear girl is 15+ years old, 50lbs, and becoming pickier every day. She just won't eat what we've been giving her anymore, she changes her mind every day, and we know we need to aim for low protein. Most of the time now she turns her nose up at just about everything except people food. We are OK with that, but please help us be creative. [more inside]

Dog suddenly hates dog walker

My wife and I have had Sally, a 7 year-old rescue for about two months now (Requisite picture). About a month ago we wanted her to be able to get a little more activity, so we hired a dog walker. He's been great - he clearly loves her, and she seemed to like him as well. There were no problems at all until last Thursday, when she suddenly wouldn't go outside with him anymore, and snapped at him when he tried to leash her up. [more inside]

older dog decisions

My 11 year old Westie has been drinking 2-3x more water than usual. My vet says the next step would either be an X-ray ($75) or an ultrasound ($500). I'm not sure what's the best next step? Cute pup photo here. [more inside]

Rescue dog transport to Omaha

Hi. I'm losing my home and I need to rehome my adult german shepherd. Thankfully a friend in Omaha offered to take her. Does anyone know of any rescue organizations or people that might be willing to transport her from Utah or Colorado to there, preferably for $300 or less?

Pet options? Is a dog irresponsible?

Me previously and previously. Sadly, the surgery wasn't successful-- the cancer returned, and I'm saying my goodbyes this week. Yesterday I was asked if I could adopt two bonded senior dogs. Obviously, I can't for the foreseeable future, but now I'm thinking about possibly getting a dog as a next pet. Looking for opinions or relevant experience. [more inside]

Dogs that go Yap in the night

Our 7 year old dachshund-beagle mix has decided that her nightly crate sleep should be interrupted by a half-hour of whining and complaining and scratching to get out of her crate. Last night this occurred at midnight, then again at 4:30 AM. This has been a nightly thing for the past two weeks or so. [more inside]

Can we even have a dog?

My wife and I are interested in getting a dog. We sort of thought of it as something we'd ease into, especially since we had heard that adoption can take a little bit of time. We stopped by a nearby animal rescue this weekend just to see what was involved, and met a very sweet, gentle 7-year-old pugle. We were very surprised to be told that the rescue does same-day adoption, and we could potentially take her home that day. I balked a little bit because our apartment isn't really set up for a dog, but we're both first time dog owners, so don't really know what that even means. [more inside]

Fire dog walker, or give him another chance?

I adopted a sweet 11yo black lab on Halloween. He's obviously still settling into home life after spending two months at the animal shelter, but in general things are going great. This was his first week with his midday dog walker, and I'm not feeling super pleased with the dog walker's services. Help me figure out if I'm right to be worried or I'm being an anxious, over-protective new (dog) Momma. [more inside]

What do you call it when a dog sort of purrs?

Almost all of the dogs I have ever known (including our new rescue, Mia) have made huffing, blowing or sort of chewing noises when they are feeling a bit soppy or are being petted or cuddled intensively. I'm curious as to why there's no word for this - does anyone have any theories? Is it not as widespread as I think it is? If you have a word for this yourself then bone-us points for sharing your coinage here.

Dog has a mast cell tumor

My dog was diagnosed via fine needle aspiration with a mast cell tumor. It is on his left lateral flank. We are scheduled to have it removed and biopsied tomorrow. However, this is our regular vet. Should we halt this and consult an oncologist or specialist first? Or should we proceed and wait till we get the results of the biopsy?

What are your best practices for vacationing in a car with a dog?

Was my daughter bit or scratched by a dog?

My in-law's dog licking up crumbs from my 18-month old daughter's car seat. My daughter toddled over and the dog turned his head sharply and she got a cut under her eye from the dog's tooth.

Is she trying to protect her dog? I'm confused. [more inside]

Is it okay to walk my dog in the cemetery?

That's it really. I live near a large, park-like cemetery and I'm wondering about the etiquette of walking my dog there. It's a modern, suburban cemetery which is quite, um, active. If I were to take my dog there, he would be leashed at all times and if I saw a funeral actually occurring I would keep far away. Would if be upsetting if a person was at the cemetery to visit the grave of a loved one and they saw me casually walking the dog as if it were any other place?

This puppy has everything she needs, except a name.

We just adopted this 8 month old female Pekingese from a shelter in the midwest. We started out working through Buffy-verse names, and got excited about Fred, which we long-formed first to Winifred, then decided that sounded like a middle name and tried to think of a very generic first name, like Lady. We ended up with Lady Winifred and we call her Fred, but the grandparents object, and we're open to choosing something different, since we chose it before meeting her. [more inside]

Another Queens/NYC bar/restaurant question

I need a bar or restaurant for a small group on Sunday. One of our group however, is my puppy. Another requirement is that it is near the N train, or a quick transfer from the N train on this Sunday (are they still randomly shutting down the 7 train over the weekend?). Beyond that, it's not too picky. I know about the Bohemian Beer Garden, but I am not sure that they allow pets. Sidewalk cafes, anything outdoors should be great.

My little scavenger

My sweet pup learned to scavenge to survive as a stray in a rural area with her mom. Now she's up to her ears in kibble and tasty treats, but the allure of dead animals, chicken bones, live bees, and bird poop beats everything out...not to mention the nectar that is dirty pond water! I'm doing the obvious, but have any of you successfully untrained fervent, compulsive scavenging behavior? Tips to share? [more inside]

dog ate black licorice candy, will he be ok?

I had a bag of chewy black licorice sticks, and my mom's dog (a bichon frise) got into it. Not sure how much the little feller ate, maybe 5-8 sticks max before I stopped him. Will he get sick? Googling delivers different results (safe in moderation, OMG poison), so I thought I'd bring it to you folk. He's on a steroidal medication for some kind of itchy skin condition, but I think that's it.
