    i'm not sure if i should spank the dog or spank you...

    i'll settle for spanking you and scratching the dog behind the ears. i will not, however, get the dog all riled up.

    Good. A dog needs, pretty much in this order:
    Clean drinking water
    Good food without a lot of fiber
    Exercise
    Discipline
    Affection
    Play

    Riling a dog up, even in play, is not good for it and it sends mixed messages to the dog. If you want to know how to play with a dog, watch two dogs playing with each other and try to duplicate that.

    -Free advice from a Hick who loves his critters.

    Hmm, I had the same problem, but with my Son.

    This works on me too... :wink:

    And your dog is great - my dog occasionally has a thimble-full of red wine when we're drinking, I think he just wants to join in a smell like the pack - and I've not seen it ever have an effect on him.. but then he is French! He also likes to jump on my lap and sniff my breath when I'm smoking grass, but I discourage that behaviour.

    When I was a bartender we had this one guy who came in with a black Lab, she was about 3, and he's get a pint (of Guinness) and a Paddy's for himself and a half (Guinness also) for the dog, which he would pour, in small increments, in to a saucer throughout the afternoon - as he drank his 3 or 4 rounds. I was never too impressed by that - but the dog was in great shape, very well behaved and they do say big dogs need more iron... still dubious though.

    :( Alcohol is a poison to dogs. It takes a whole lot less to kill one of them than it does to kill one of us. I wouldn't actually allow my dog to drink any alcohol.

    Shit! I guess pooch ain't gonna get his red wine no more!! (actually I did read recently grapes and especially raisins are bad for dogs - and what's wine made of? :confused: )

    Garlic as well is lethal.

    Hold up, now. We give garlic gel caps to our dogs weekly. It is the best way to control fleas and ticks for dogs that are outside. We've been doing it for years and for different breeds from Dalmations to Miniture Schnauzers to Chihuahua's and just about everything in between and, have had no ill effects from it. It seems to me that if you can use something that is natural it's better for them that a chemical.
    Also, if you use a non-smelling type of garlic cap their skin doesn't have the tell tale odor. All of the 'kids' love them and line up on Saturday morning for them.

    I now understand why Hickster's dog can recite Shakespeare and play Steve Vai licks on the Ibanez JEM.
