Tips for helping our dog while we manage his torn acl?

Our 30 lb dog beast has torn (or ruptured) his ACL. He has a host of other medical issues, but the vet has put him on pain meds (he was already on an anti-inflammatory) and wants to see how he does by the end of two weeks. Because it's a common problem, I was hoping you folks might have some tips to make him as comfortable as possible. [more inside]

My dustpan needs a break from sweeping up dog food

My dog has a habit of taking a mouthful of her (dry) food from her bowl, walking a short distance away, and depositing it on the floor. Then she'll go back and finish the rest. Anyone know what causes this behavior? How can we train her not to do it? [more inside]

Snooze, cuddle, snuggle, ATTACK!!!

What advice do you have for raising a happy, healthy and sane Australian Cattle Dog? We just adopted an 5 & 1/2 month old ACD/mixed breed puppy from a shelter and for the most part, she is a dream come true. She does have many of the less-pleasant but totally normal puppy behaviors like mouthing/biting when playing. We were told that she is a little socially delayed because she had diarrhea when she was transfered in from a high-kill shelter a few weeks ago. Treating the diarrhea threw off her vaccination & spay schedule, so she hasn't had much of a chance to socialize with other dogs and people until now. [more inside]

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

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.

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?
