Ever since he was adopted, we have fed our pup Cooper only natural food (our prior 2 dogs died of digestive-related tumors/cancers so we've been extra cautious). However we recently received a 20lb bag of Pedigree free with a coupon, so I thought we'd just see if he'd eat it. Well for the last 24 hours he's been acting like he's on uppers. Has anyone else noticed this kind of effect? I'm pretty sure it correlates to the sugar/carb percentage difference in the normal foods he gets and this new bag. I'm pretty sure that I'll be going immediately back to our regular stuff because for a dog under 2 this added energy is just insane! Thoughts?
Oh, and here's a recent pic just to give you an idea of what he looks like in case you forgot :)
Well, the girls did dress up for halloween and entered a costume contest and had tons of pictures taken of them, problem... I can't find them! in the papers there are line up pictures and I have pictures of the dogs to the left and right of me. I'm not mad, actualy I find it pretty funny.
Winter is coming! What better way to keep your dog warm than a quality made fleece sweater? I'm pleased to announce that Otto's Outfits is up and running, after a long-overdue website overhaul! Check out our growing selection of dog sweaters and vests, plus Halloween costumes!
HEllo! I just started this LJ, let me introduce myself:
I have 3 miniture schnauzers. Here are Sooner, Levi, and Otto.
Sooner is the white one. He is very mischevious and likes to steal socks! Then there is Levi. He was a rescue dog. He is very old and is diabetic and has Cushing's disease, but still is a playful olf guy. Last is Otto. He is such a big boy, but has a golden heart! I named my dog sweater business Otto's Outfits in his honor! Levit is wearing one of my sweaters.
Hey guys, I thought you all might be really interested in ZooToo.com which is a new social network for animal lovers (just like I said in the subject haha). I actually found my groomer with it using their pet services function. So if you're like me and have a dog AND a cat, this is a place where you can put them (and other kinds of pets/animals) up in your own zoo. there's also pet news, meet-up groups, product reviews by members, and tons of other stuff.
Anyway, just thought I'd share. I'm looking to gain friends on there! OH and i almost forgot to mention that they do good for the animal community by making over shelters and giving a portion of the ad rev gained by people being on the site to shelters. i think that the more you use the site/invite people/make friends, the more $$ goes to the shelter of your choice... hence my motivation to get friends!!!!

Hey, I'm new to the community but I have been a dog lover for as long as I can remember.
I have four dogs (Yes, 4!!!!) three poms and a rottie/labby.
I come bearing photos.
Just one for now. Photobucket is being an ass.
My rottie/labby, we named hime after Rocky in...Well, Rocky. LOL. Isn't he fat. ^_^ He's cold, and we bought him a dog jumper. He's such a cutie. A Big cutie, but a cutie none the less. All my friends call him a mini-horse.
Hi there. My name is Naomi. I've recently started a livejournal community for Australian dog owners. This is not specific to animal welfare, but I hope that it may be a springboard for local community cohesion concerning animal welfare. It is also a place where people can share pictures of and stories about their dogs as well as potentially discuss local animal issues, including laws, fostering and animal transportation.
