RE: How many states has your dog been too?

If I've counted correctly (and I think I have) -- 27

I'm looking and listening to hear more about the booster shots! Dr. Fauci has indicated an approximate date of September 20, 2021 for introduction first to those who have an autoimmune problem. Does anyone else have additional sourced information? Third doses for certain immune compromised/immune suppressed people have already been authorized. I had my third dose on 8/16. Here's the CDC info.

RE: Views on when to/not to allow a dog to be social

For us I judge the human attached to the leash and my gut about the dog. ^^This.^^ Although I'd say it's mostly about reading the dog's body language, as well as my own gut instinct. Most people and most dogs are friendly.

RE: Quotes puzzle me.

A new post is added and the first response is a quote of the new post. Anybody else understand this? If so please quote and respond. I don't know, but one guess is that some people assume there might be other replies while they're in the process of typing out theirs, so they quote to keep things clear. Like if three people had replied while I was typing this out, depending on how their replies went mine might not make sense w/o quoting. I've seen it happen on busy forums.

RE: Peas in dog food associated with dilated cardiomyopathy

I've always fed my pets a fairly widely varied diet. To me that's just commonsense, as nothing seems less healthful to me than eating nothing but the same highly processed food day after day, year after year. I've never had a pet with a particularly sensitive stomach. One of our previous dogs did have bad allergies, serious enough that we had to do a food allergy elimination diet, then testing and desensitization shots. But it was easy enough to avoid his food triggers. My Shih Tzu LOVES green peas (and green beans and green peppers). I'm pretty sure he'd live on them if we let him. Since the speculation about peas came out a couple of years ago I've had a niggling little worry whenever I give him a spoonful of green peas, even though it's usually less than once a week.

RE: RV sites near Raleigh, NC

The state fair is the third week in October, I think. I'm guessing the fairgrounds campground might not be available then.

RE: Puppy food suggestions

If I had a new puppy now and needed to feed kibble I'd likely go with Purina ProPlan or Royal Canin. If I needed something I could pick up anywhere I'd go with Purina One.

RE: Floor Protection Questions

Thirty minutes is what I always shoot for with young puppies. It's a ton of work but it's well worth the payoff. Of course every thirty minutes isn't always possible, but I try for as close to that as I can, at least for the first two or three weeks. I think a remnant piece of vinyl would be a great solution.

RE: Finally some good news on the puppy front!

For me, I prefer not to do two dogs the same age. It just means everything is doubled in a short time. I like having 2-4 years between them. That way one has been potty trained and obedience trained before trying to start on the next one. Ditto. Even though I'm currently in this exact situation due to DH's "foster fail" resulting in an early pandemic adoption, in general I've always tried to avoid having two senior dogs at the same time. They get expensive, even just for maintenance. And most importantly, I don't want to lose two dogs very close together. Having them spaced is no guarantee for avoiding that, of course, but having two the same age is certainly much more risky. Plus I know my limits. I don't have what it takes to raise two puppies right at the same time. There are very good reasons most trainers recommend against it, and why most wouldn't ever do it themselves. Like the others, I'll be looking forward to pictures. I don't believe I've ever seen a Gordon in real life.

RE: Coffee Survey

I used a Keurig for a few years but I never really liked it. I was happy when it bit the dust. Bought a basic Mr. Coffee drip machine until I could research something better. Ended up using it for a couple of years until it died. It wasn't awful but it never got the coffee quite as hot as I like. Now I use a Ninja drip machine with McDonald's coffee. Suits me fine.

RE: Skinny cat

I'd try keeping some of the Iams dry available for her all the time, and offering several small meals a day of different canned foods with different flavors and textures. In addition to Fancy Feast, many cats seem to like Friskies canned food. And it's relatively inexpensive, so not too much cost to experiment with a few different flavors. Despite the stereotype of the finicky cat who only wants her favorite food, there are lots of cats who want variety. I kept several brands/types of canned food for one of our previous cats. He rarely got the same thing more than twice in a row, and he liked it that way.

RE: Skinny cat

Has she had a thorough vet check with blood work recently? At 10 I'd want to get a senior blood panel done, check for kidney and thyroid function, have her teeth checked, etc. All those and more can cause weight loss and/or change in appetite.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Yes. And according to this article the incidence of breakthrough cases in Washington is less than 0.01 percent. Unless I'm badly misinterpreting something, that seems like very good news.

RE: Good Deterrent Against Home Burglars

We actually have an around-the-corner neighbor who has a very large pet pig. It's ugly as sin. But it goes outside and I've never seen the pig offer to leave their yard. I'd hate to think what would happen if it wondered into the road. I had a very funny conversation one morning with a new FedEx delivery driver. He wanted to know where the farm was around here, 'cause he'd just seen a loose pig at the house up the street. I had to work quite a bit to convince him that the pig lives there, in the house.

RE: Credit Score

well the reality of the world that we live in makes credit scores irrelevent. diff'rent strokes. My MIL's friend, who is 85 yo and well off, thought the same thing. Until a few months ago, when almost simultaneously she found that she couldn't change cable TV providers or auto insurance companies due to lack of a credit score. Now granted no one really needs cable TV, but we (me and my DH) do need auto insurance. And we've found that changing companies every two/three years saves us a significant amount of money. I wish we didn't have to do that--it's a pain in the rear to do the comparison--but (again) it's the world we live in, and we prefer to have choices and save lots of money.

RE: Credit Score

The way I look at it is: if you have to worry about, or even care about your credit score, you are living above your means! Guy My experience is the polar opposite. The people I know who keep the closest watch on their credit scores and who put some thought into improving them (if possible) are the most financially responsible and financially literate people. Most are the millionaire-next-door types. They understand the reality of the world in which they live.

RE: Credit Score

I once and only once had a credit score of 851 which I thought was impossible because I read that 850 was the top limit. There are all sorts of credit score tabulations, done by various agencies and services. I had reason to have my score run by a business a few months ago and it was 875. I have no idea what agency/service they used. Like most people nowadays I do kinda sorta keep tabs on my score, so of course I knew it was quite high. But I didn't know anyone was using scales above 850.
