    Bit of a random question but ... (water buckets)

    My main guess is that it has to do with the colours on the buckets. However, if I imagine myself trying to lean over and try to drink out of those two buckets, then the edge on the yellow bucket looks more comfortable to lean my neck against, than compared to the edge on the white bucket. But...

    Hazel branches

    There are some horse owners in Sweden who likes to feed their horses branches with leaves as a supplement, because some leaves can have a very good nutritional value. But sadly I found conflicting info about hazel. Some info said hazel is safe as a hedge plant for horses, because they can...

    I'm sorry for the trouble this causes in your family. Hopefully your niece will eventually realise that sadly some dog's have problems which you can't solve simply with love.

    Should I get the cat?

    I'm the other way around, I would guess that around 98% of my cat owning years have been with multiple cats. The majority of our cats have enjoyed living together, and the few that didn't care that much about the others quickly learned to ignore the others. So in your shoes, if I liked the cat...

    And then there were two...

    I'm very happy with the photo, but first and last I'm just happy to hear that they're doing well. (I actually briefly thought about posting asking for an update this morning, but decided not to, since the kittens might be busy trying to assimilate you, to which resistance is futile...)

    Pit Bulls

    I hadn't read that one. Uhm, I wonder if whoever wrote that info is taking some type of happy la-la land drug? 1 years old, haven't been taught basic manners, can be a little wild, selective with doggy mates but tolerates male dogs, find food very valuable, and can be quite obsessive about it...

    Yard dilemma: not again!

    The facilities might be a bit rundown, but sound fully functionable, and the YO who recently took over keeps it nice and clean, and wasn't pushy about wanting you or anyone else interested to move in tomorrow just to fill up the spaces. They have a separate block with extra ventilation for...

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your pretty girl. It's difficult enough when their time ends some years before you thought it would happen, but even worse when you lose two only months apart. Judging by the photos Clover had a lovely life, and have given your mom and you love, and memories neither...

    Pit Bulls

    Haven't looked at the info on all the dogs, but the dogs I did read the description on seems to have one thing in common = energetic. Even poor Oswald, 8 years, blind, liked to run around in the foster home's backyard. But even though it sounds as if he finds living in the shelter's kennel...

    Offensive plants!

    Aww, Blue sounds like such a sweetie!

    Yikes! I hope you heal and recover as swiftly as possible {{{{{{Vibes}}}}}} I'm sorry for your niece that loves her dog, but the control such a dog needs to be under, is for me just not compatible with a good quality of life, and a happy dog.

    Oh no, I'm so sorry. {{{{{{Hugs}}}}}} to both you and your mom.

    Older dog and accidents

    {{{Hugs}}}, and thanks for the update. If it is the slippery slope, then my Beata is also living on borrowed time. But she galloped out in the garden this morning as usual, and is happy and perky, so I try to just be happy over that she is here today, and deal with whatever happens tomorrow...

    Whatever you try feeding her, have you tried serving it warm, e.g. by adding warm water just before feeding? Warm food often both smell and taste more than food that is cold or have room temperature. I sadly only have a negative experience of pneumonia and dogs. Years ago, it sadly turned out...
