What is this strange phenomenon?

What is this strange phenomenon happening with ostensibly house trained dogs soiling the house? I just threw out three area rugs that my 4 yr. old Beagle has ruined by pooing and peeing on them, even to the point of blackening the hardwood floor beneath. The very FIRST thing my son's dog does when she visits is crap and pee right in front of us! No shame.... [more inside]

He's a very good boy !

My best buddy, an Australian Cattle Dog named "Willie Nelson" has Cushing's Disease , and will require medication for the remainder of his life (he's 14). The prescription is for Vetoryl (trilostane 60mg), and through my Vet it's $100, but he said he would be happy to write a Rx for an online provider. I see prices as low as $67, but I want to make sure Willie is getting just what the Dr. ordered. Which online provider do you use? which ones do you avoid ?

2 year old house cat chewing cords and straps in half.

Why is our cat chewing cords and straps in half; and may eat small pieces of it, but mostly leaves it? (Shoelaces, Bra Straps, Tank Top Straps, iPhone cords, etc.) Aside from the idea that cats seem to enjoy chewing and licking leathery things or plastic things, like plastic bags, is there a greater reason? Maybe psychological? He is fed 1/3 cup of food twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, I doubt he is hungry. Any ideas on a replacement? More inside. [more inside]

Deodorizing a house

De-stinkifying a house of cat smell--while the cats (and their not-so-hygenic owners) still live there. I found a place I want to live (cheap!), but all of the common areas smell very strongly of cat and litterbox. If I move in, are there any affordable measures I can take to return the place to tolerable freshness? Or should I find somewhere else to live? [more inside]
