    Sounds good, that is a relief, haha. Hopefully next heat is a breeze and no false preg after. She will most likely go into heat again sometime in September. I'm going to probably wait January-February of '23 and then spay her. That would put her at about 18 months in age. I've read all the...

    Thank you for all of the information Raven! She has not been licking her teets or trying to nest and has not become protective of her toys. I took away most of them just to be safe aside from a couple balls and a tugging rope, etc. I'm keeping her busy with the flirt stick I built to tire her...

    It's gotten pretty hardcore the last couple of days. No guarding or nesting or any of that kind of behavior but she is having clear discharge from her private area (no swelling or anything like that) and there is definitely milk production. Some of her frontal teets are swollen as well. Should...

    Sorry! Have been crazy busy and replying to this thread went right over my head. She's been doing good - been feeding about 2 cups in the evening with some kind of protein (bare baked or boiled chicken, beef liver, etc.) Still not a fan of breakfast but whatever, I can live with it as long as...

    Thank you very much! I will definitely be doing all of the above. Going to definitely give the sardines a try - see how she likes them. I am now wondering if I could just make a pot full of goodies a couple of days per week and just top her kibble with it. She loves fruit; apples, oranges...

    I think I will quit kibble in the morning and just feed it in the evening. She never says no to people food :) I will start doing oatmeal, and other types of foods like fruits and different kinds of proteins. Do you give your egg raw or boiled/fried?

    I'm scratching my head - :facepalm: She ate all of her dinner last night - 2 cups along with a little bit of salmon. She slept great (10:30 PM all the way to 8 AM) in her crate without a peep. She woke up this morning and ran around the property for a bit, played ball and with her toys, drank...

    Interesting information, hopefully someone does! I am curious and Glory sounds like a gem 😍 ////// Still no heat as of today - just shy of 9 months old - she has been the same, just super clingy but I think she's always been like that with me to a certain degree. She refused to eat dinner...

    Ok awesome :woot2: I think you are right - she might just be eating what she needs. I'm the same way, Sometimes I mix in freeze dried or left overs etc, not crazy amounts - just for taste mostly. I'll keep monitoring her weight and report back - the last thing I want to do is just leave food...

    Thank you for the quick response Raven! She's not losing weight, it's not noticeable at least, I'd say she gains 1-2 lbs every week or so. I think she looks fine, aesthetically speaking, doesn't look too skinny in my opinion. If you click the Gyazo link in my original post, I have a small GIF...

    Hello All, Yet again I am seeking some advice on what seems to be going on :thumbsup2: 8-1/2 Month Old Female Pup refusing to eat breakfast for almost 3 weeks now. She will eat dinner fine, I feed 1-1/2-2 Cups for Breakfast and Dinner totaling about 4 cups per day. I feed at 8 AM and 5 PM...

    J&J Zonas alternative?

    Thank you! Every time we're at the store, she uses those good looks on me and I end up buying her whatever she wants. Smart pup :laughing:

    J&J Zonas alternative?

    Hmm - yes not sure. I checked the gum and teeth first - nothing but she stopped doing it all together now. Weird stuff! I haven't posted since - no breath rite strips or anything and the ears are still up and she has stopped scratching her ears all together. I think we're done. She is...

    J&J Zonas alternative?

    Hello all - hope everyone is doing well and Happy New Year! Update at 7-1/2 months - I've been breath rite strip posting since I last posted and stopped posting all together a few days ago when I took her into the vet for the constant ear scratching. The non-stop scratching, and her wanting to...

    On/Off Soft Stool/Diarrhea for the last 3 weeks - 6 mo. f puppy

    Thanks Stryker - I checked them out / I will consider it if I run into more issues in the near future. Quick update - all has been well - she has been doing pretty good. The occasional "I'm super excited" soft poop here and there but so far so good - solid stools twice a day on regular...

    On/Off Soft Stool/Diarrhea for the last 3 weeks - 6 mo. f puppy

    Hello All, Update - solid stools day/night for the last few days which is a relief and no more poop runs at 3 a.m! :thumbsup: I'll probably hold off on the allergy testing for now seeing as she is consuming both chicken and rice which I originally thought were the main culprits. I guess it...

    On/Off Soft Stool/Diarrhea for the last 3 weeks - 6 mo. f puppy

    LOL muzzle his arse. Yeah it's a pain in the behind (literally) to clean, especially thick turf which is what I'm dealing with. I think chicken is ruled out, She was fine again this morning - solid number #2 once again. I am adding a little less rice and potatoes every meal and more of the...

    On/Off Soft Stool/Diarrhea for the last 3 weeks - 6 mo. f puppy

    I will order some right now and give it a try/keep it on hand. Thank you for the recommendation! Thank you for the insight. I don't think I'm ready to raw feed yet but if that's what needs to happen, then so be it! I stopped the pumpkin after one or two days (table spoonful at each meal). I...

    On/Off Soft Stool/Diarrhea for the last 3 weeks - 6 mo. f puppy

    Yep - I am trying it all! I will get to the bottom of this, haha. I tried the pumpkin, same result... You know what's weird, when she was younger, pumpkin worked like magic. Just one tablespoon and boom! hard stools again. Now, using it with every meal or other meal for two to three days and it...
