  1. Be afraid, be very afraid! They are SO smart. When I had my first AI dog, I found this highly-recommended, new fangled expensive "educational toy" made in Sweden kind of thing. (It WAS expensive). It even came with a large manual on how to introduce it slowly and teach new things with it over the course of several *months*. In 10 minutes, we had skipped to about chapter 10 LOL and another 10 minutes later and we were all bored with it. Never seen anything like it before or since. If you can get into a tricks class after basic training is done, I would highly suggest it (we took ou
  2. In our house, that face is referred to as the "I can has?"

    Happy New Year!

    I would be interested in both shirts and business cards. Can you point me to a link?
  4. Glad you are are doing better Allison! This time last year I had my hip replaced and for obvious reasons, had to stay somewhere away from the rambunctious doggos to rehab. I have never missed them so much!! I felt awful leaving them but the reunion sure was sweet.
  5. What a wonderful Christmas gift for all! Thank you Kim and Greg for all that you do.
  6. Sending prayers and good thoughts!!
  7. They're all absolutely precious!
  8. Another thing you might look into (a friend that has horses says it's a must-have) is the Bach Flower Remedies for pets. I haven't tried it myself yet as the iheartdogs chews seem to work great for Bandit, but I will definitely keep it in my back pocket in case.
  9. I think they have just moved the page. Try this: https://iheartdogs.com/product/project-paws-advanced-all-natural-calming-chews-for-dogs/
  10. We had an excellent experience flying with Kito. He travelled great in his carrier and slept the whole time, such an angel. Mommy on the other hand, was a wreck.
  11. In the "for what it's worth" department, now that fireworks are done for the year: We have finally found something that helps Bandit - nothing, including Vet prescribed meds or a Thundershirt helped his fear of thunderstorms (and fireworks noises). I can highly recommend! http://iheartdogs.com/product-category/anxiety/ They are grain and gluten free, and have the included list of active ingredients. Valerian root Organic Chamomile Organic Passionflower Thiamine (Vitamin B1) Magnesium Citrate GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) L- Tryptophan Organic Ginger Root
  12. What wonderful news! Now so many more people can be exposed to these wonderful dogs that we love and appreciate. Thank you Kim and Peter for everything you do!
  13. Good wishes and good luck. Let us know how it goes!
  14. Denise, he doesn't seem to have any problems digesting. We're feeding a little bit larger kibble to try to encourage him not choking it down, but... LOL, Allison, I am totally familiar with the "Did you chew it??"
  15. Kaposia and Kito sound very much alike in that.
  16. Figured I'd see if anyone had advice on this one. Our Bandit chokes down his food like there's no tomorrow. It's dangerous and I'm just afraid he's going to hurt himself. We have a slo-bowl but it doesn't much slow him down. I've tried hand feeding him, but even then, he snaps at my hands and isn't listening. Same with only feeding a bite at a time delivered into the bowl. He and brother are fed separately, they don't seem to have any issues keeping to their own bowls. I think they only ever had a disagreement about it once, and Kito settled it quickly. Bandit hasn't ever again
  17. An excellent adventure to be sure, and well told. I was able to form my own wonderful mental pictures.
  18. Gorgeous baby and gorgeous picture.

    And with the BLANKET no less.

    Pretty Sit

    LOL, NorCal, that's the "hybrid" half-sideways, half-upright position. High difficulty rating.

    Pretty Sit

    Just curious if anyone else's pup does what we call a "chair sit" - he sits straight up on his hind legs and puts both front paws on the bed, my leg, whatever his focus is. I've always known these babies are amazing users of their front paws, our first AID often laid on his back, holding a toy or chewy in mid-air over his head with both front paws. They also seem to enjoy stretching out on their backs with all four feet in the air, especially against a wall (Bandit and Kito both.)
