If a dog attacks your ankle while you're running...

Last night running home, a small dog attacked my ankle. Luckily I was wearing long pants so the dog got my pants instead of my ankle. I'm not sure what my response should have been, and am curious if there's etiquette around this in case it happens again. [more inside]

A dog without politics in Seattle?

I am looking to adopt a dog, but first I want more information. I live in Seattle. I'd love to find a dog group/dog place where I can go, ask questions, maybe even get to know some different dogs, but I've lived in Seattle for more than 20 years and I've seen how ridiculous, make-PETA-look-sane, over the top animal people here can be. Is there a dog place/group in Seattle that is kind to people? [more inside]

Drawing or painting of a beagle puppy eating a businessman?

When I was a kid in the late 80's/early 90's, my favorite booth at Hardee's had a big print of a drawing or painting of a beagle puppy eating a businessman. There were little legs sticking out of the puppy's mouth in suit pants and business-type shoes, kicking around. Can you help me find this again? [more inside]

How can I help my dog with an itchy, licky tail wound?

My (otherwise healthy, but very itchy as of late) dog licked and chewed his tail so much today that there is now a raw, bloody spot near the base. We are going to the vet tomorrow morning. Is there anything I can do tonight to stop the itching so we can both sleep? My instinct is to trim the hair around the wound, clean it with water, apply human antibiotic/anti itch cream, and somehow bandage the tail. Bad idea? Better ideas?

Dog Nibbles Sheets

My dog "chews" bed sheets. She leaves no holes, which is why I use quotation marks. She sits on the floor close to the bed and nibbles with her front teeth on the edge of the bed. She's done this for years; she's an eight year old pit bull. Does anyone know why she does this?
