    Help Needed! Afraid of kittens- low confidence

    My housemate got 2 kittens a couple of months ago. They're now 6 months old. Cricket is 5 1/2 years old. Cricket is afraid of them. One (Leia) pretty much ignores Cricket- the other one (Dobby) thinks it's fun to bounce off Cricket's head (no claws involved). The kittens are not aggressive...

    General Question Vulvoplasty and entropion surgery at the same time

    Cricket's scheduled for a vulvoplasty, entropion surgery, and extraction of 2 loose teeth (front lower incisors- she doesn't use these) all at once. (I do not want to put Cricket under general anesthesia any more times than what's absolutely necessary.. she does have a bulldog specialist working...

    fearful/avoiding collars/harnesses

    Hi, everyone- I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for me to use with Cricket. She's recently become more skittish about having a collar, harness, or anything (this includes clothes) put on her. She's never liked clothes- she just becomes dead weight when I put things on her, and then rolls...

    spontaneous appearance of lumps on skin

    Hi- I let Cricket out last night at about 9:30. She was in the back yard for maybe 10 minutes. When she came back in, she had about eight mosquito bite sized lumps all over her back and on her legs (none on her belly, paws, or chest. I even checked in her mouth- no welts in her mouth). The...

    jumping on people

    Any ideas on how I can teach Cricket (8 months) to not jump on people? She'll often fixate on something someone is holding and decide that she HAS TO HAVE IT, and then she'll start jumping on them, trying to get it. She'll jump on a complete stranger, and she's pretty good at it- she can get up...

    Life vest- borrow/trial basis?

    Hi- I'm going rafting/kayaking next month. It's with a German Shepherd group, and I'm bringing Cricket along for the festivities. (There'll be two people per boat, so I think it's kayaking.. but not sure). I am NOT putting Cricket on a boat without a vest- that's not an option for me. She...

    heartworm/flea preventive recommendations? Help appreciated.

    Hi- Cricket's just had her 3rd dose of Comboguard tonight. She had no problems with the first dose. She threw up after the second dose last month (the same time she had a stomach bug, so the vet's office suggested trying it again to see). I just gave her her 3rd dose with dinner. A few...

    Food Frustrations

    Hi- I'm hoping someone can help- I got Cricket from the pound (at 16 weeks- she's now 6 months). They had her on Science Diet, which I immediately took her off.. Had her on Simply Nourish for a short time, because her stools never firmed up past the soft-serve ice cream stage with that...

    new member

    Hi- I'm a new member. I had my first bully, Willa, for 12 years. She passed last year, and I think she took a part of me with her when she went. She was such a sweet, sweet, mellow dog. After telling myself I'd not get another bulldog, I found Cricket. She's now 5 1/2 - 6 months old...
