    I work in research. Yeah, that's a really confusing article in terms of how they report sample sizes. Looks like they started with a sample of 33,320 dogs, and had some demographic data about them....

    I'm totally jealous. I was in New England on vacation in October 2016, and was stunned by how spectacular the leaves are, particularly in Maine (we visited Acadia National Park). Leaves change in...

    Yeah, this is a complicated and scary issue. I fed Winston grain-free food the last seven years of his life, mostly because he had weight issues and the grain-free food helped keep him slim. As far...

    I took Winston to the vet this morning. Got an entire blood panel done on him and a Prozac prescription. The vet examined him. He has two lumps on him, but they're just lipomas. One he's had for a...

    Tragic Situation

    Lab board friends,

    It’s been a while. And I wish I was returning to the board under better circumstances, but I wanted to update you on a tragic situation and solicit advice from all of you about...

    So I am moving into a new apartment with the boyfriend. My dog seems to have mysteriously developed a severe separation anxiety issue. He whines and howls the entire time he is left alone. If someone...

    Bed Peeing - What's up with that?

    Hey, everyone. Long time, no post. I've recently run into a problem with my dog, Winston. He's 7 now, and is in good health. However, in the last 3 weeks he has peed on the bed twice. To be specific,...

    Well, here we are again. After ~4 years of having two good legs, Winston tore the other CCL. The vet diagnosed it several weeks ago. I tried conservative management for a couple of months but the...

    I'm going through this with Winston right now. He tore his first CCL when he was 2 years old. I got it fixed via the TTA procedure, and he's done great. I took 20 pounds off him (he went from 100 to...

    I agree. There are also bad bloodlines for virtually every "pure breed" of dog out there. It's the people breeding on aggressive characteristics and mistreating their animals who need to be singled...

    Isn't that the truth? I want Bernie Sanders to be the next president but realistically it'll probably be Hillary Clinton or Marco Rubio taking the Oath in January 2017.

    Thanks for the reply, Mr. Kleb.

    I believe I would support NDP or the Liberals if I were able to vote in Canada. It's hard to imagine that Harper had many fresh ideas to offer after having been in...

    When it comes to utilities, there aren't really choices, whether the company is privately or publicly owned. It's either a state-run entity or a legalized business monopoly. Neither has much...

    I wish the plan was a bit more comprehensive as well, but it's good that this is part of the national conversation at least. Of course, it has zero chance of passing in this Congress.

    I believe universal access to higher education and healthcare should be the goal of any wealthy, democratic society. I don't expect it to happen overnight, but it's a goal worth fighting for. There's...
