Dogs and Chocolate

We've all heard it: "dogs are allergic to chocolate." Actually, that's not such a bad way to think of it, and keeping your dog away from any and all chocolate is a must. But it is a good idea to understand the problem dogs have with chocolate, so you can be prepared in case there is a problem.

It's actually not an "allergy." As you know, chocolate contains caffeine. But it also contains a related compound called theobromine, and this is what dogs are very sensitive to. Symptoms of theobromine poisoning include obvious stomach pain, restlessness, drooling, and vomiting... and the vomit may in fact smell like chocolate, which is a definite giveaway. If enough theobromine has been consumed, then more severe symptoms will follow, such as rapid breathing, increased heart rate, trembling, and cyanotic (bluish) gums. Convulsions and death may follow. It's serious, and if your dog manages to get his paws on some chocolate, get on the phone with the vet or poison control center immediately. -Read the whole article

Glen of Imaal Terrier
Recently we rescued of Glen of Imaal from our local SPCA. She is 4 yrs old and is a very focused little girl. A mind of her own, not real affectionate, but very loyal at the same time. She has trained me well.

Akita
I've owned 2 male Akitas. They've both been very healthy, low maintenance, friendly to humans, have lived with other pets but are NOT good with other males. Don't require a great deal of exercise.. A walk twice a day is plenty. Mine chew ice cubes after a walk. Neither of them showed any real interest in chewing anything else, but this has proven to keep their teeth and gums healthy and it's kind of funny, too. Can't sing their praises enough. Wonderful family membe

Coton de Tulear
My frenid Joan in My frenid Joan in Toronto was featured on Dogs With Jobs in Canada about 10 years ago. She had a standard poodle named Morgan as her narcolepsy service dog, and to our knowledge he was the first in the world. Joan now has Shaba as her service dog. Because the collapses in narcolepsy are actually paralysis (cataplexy) rather than sleep, Shaba's job is to drag her to a safe place when she's going to collapse, and stand over her and protect her while she's down.

Flat-Coated Retriever Information
The Flat-Coated Retriever was developed in Great Britain in the late 1800's with the advent of the breachcock shotgun requiring a need for a faster retriever. Dogs used in developement were Setters, Spaniels, Collie, St. John's Water Dog, and Wavy Coated Retriever. The Flat-Coated Retriever was deveoped from the start to be a dual-purpose breed as both a working retriever and show dog. The Flat-Coated Retriever is a medium sized active dog that shows power without lumber and raciness without weediness. They are natural retrievers and make an excellent family companion hunting retriever for upland game as well as waterfowl. (They love water.) Flat-Coated Retrievers are slow to mature and often carry on their enthusiam for life (exhibited by a constant wagging tail) and playfullness into their late years. Flat-Coated Retrievers should be trained early with a "light" hand and consistency. They are eager to please but do not respond well to harsh punishment. If left un-trained and un-attended the Flat-Coat could develope into a destructive dog. Being a retriever they like to carry things in their mouths and need plenty of toys to chew. The Flat-Coated Retriever is a family/companion working retriever that is at it's best with family interaction and a job to do. With the proper traing and family interaction the Flat-Coated Retriever will make an excellent addition to the family.
