Do diapers or special menstrual pads work better on female dogs in estrus?

Pippin learned how to swim this weekend. I'm so proud of my lil horse-beaver-bear-pig-dog. Unfortunately I didn't get any pix this time, but here's an older one taken at the same park:




If there's anyone in the Ft. Lauderdale area take your doggies here:

Bark Park, "The Park Dogs Ask For By Name"

The fresh water lake is for dogs only, but I waded in up to my knees.. the water felt great.

Hahah.. yep.. big as a horse, but chews wood like a beaver, looks like a bear, eats like a pig, and fools everyone into thinking he's just a dog.

As far as I know he's not genetically modified.. but I do wonder sometimes..

Bekka, maybe he's a genetic hybrid.

tots, what is Gia wearing? It looks like a cute little patchwork coat.

Well we did one of those genetic tests for dogs, and he's definitely a mutt. I think the test results were pretty close to what we believe he may be, a mix of German Shepherd, Rottweiler, some Lab, and the test revealed also some Anatolian Shepherd, along with other mutts in his DNA.. he's just a big-dog mutt.

As for Blackjack, we haven't tested him but we believe he's a Rottie and Doberman mix.. I should do the test on him too, to see what the results say and if we're anywhere near right.

The SO created a powerpoint to remind me to take out the garbage on Tuesdays (he's the one that tends to forget btw). Just click to move through:

If you can't view it let me know, I tried to save it to the right file type but I'm not sure.

I think about doing DNA for Polly, but then I think, as long as she tries not to have accidents or eat shoes, who cares?

(Not a reflection on those who do pursue DNA, of course. I'd kinda like to do my own DNA, though.)

@ninjadog
Gia is wearing her Sweetheart dress! It is too cute... Has a rhinestone heart on the belt. I will have to take a pic of her in it.

Oh I love my mutts regardless.. I just did the test to satisfy my curiosity.

I can understand that.

I do have a dare out with a friend, who swears her little six pounder girl is part pit; if she does a DNA test and is right, I have to kiss this creepy, sad sack guy we know.

I hope she never even does the test.

Hey I just had a question for you dog owners and experts (I'm talkin to you Ninj, and anyone else who can answer).

Pippin has some serious eye-boogers in just his left eye. The right eye gets a normal amount of boogers in it, that you can just wipe off. With the left eye, I have to practically dig out the giant mucus that accumulates in the inside corner of his eye. The mucus is normally white or off-white in color if not slightly yellow.. could this mean that he has sinus problems or allergies? Just wondering in case I should have him seen by a vet.

Irving (my standard poodle) had goopy eyes. The lower lids were just a little saggy. However, it was in both eyes, so I just cleaned it out and didn't worry about it.

If this is new for Pippin, it might be worth having it looked at the next time he goes in for something. I probably wouldn't worry about it unless there's a change for the worse, though.

Anyone else have thoughts on this eye goop matter?

Don't get me started on the mislabeling of "heavy chewer" items.

Thanks Ninja.. I feel better that it's likely nothing serious. I will ask the vet next time we see her just to completely be sure.

Honestly, I just used to touch it with a tissue (if I was feeling hygienic), let it stick, and then toss the tissue. Some days it was more yellow than others, but not enough to worry the vet.

(If you want to know what I did when I wasn't feeling hygienic, pm me, so I can spare everyone, including you, in advance. I will not be offended if you skip this option.)
