As mentioned recently in the Twitter timeline, Yuki has been fighting a yeast infection in one of his ears for over a year now. We get ear wash and medicine, Mom works on his ear for a couple weeks and everything is fine for about a month, and then the infection come raging back.

Review: What they play with.

Continuing with the discussions of what we provide our dogs with, this post will discuss their playthings. It is really a simple list. At the top of the list is the most heavily used, the Chuckit brand of balls and throwers. Yuki has always been madly in love with the Chuckit ball. He chews them ...

Review:  What They Sleep On

11. April 2016 YukiPecos 0
One thing we, and probably many dog owners, go through is dog beds. At least, we used to go through them until we started buying the “Kirkland Signature” dog beds from Costco. A long time ago we always used to buy the dog’s beds from whatever pet store we were frequenting at the time. I ...

I’ve had pet dogs, on and off, since junior high school and one thing that I thought I was seeing more of these days than before was dogs watching TV. I can remember as a kid trying to get the dog to notice a cat or dog on the screen with zero success. Today, without ...

One of our constant battles is with Yuki’s hair. All dogs shed. Some, more than others. I sometimes wonder if Yuki is able to set an all-time-high shedding rate amongst canines. Like the Samoyed, if Yuki’s hair is not brushed daily or weekly then “tumbleweeds” (as Mom calls them) begin showing up all over the ...

Health: How we treat ’em.

25. March 2016 general, YukiPecos 0
In reference to the previous article on food, everyone has an opinion on Veterinarians. Especially the ones they trust their dog’s health with. And, I’m sure our choice is not everyone’s choice. Since they are a nation-wide organization, there’s probably locations that aren’t as great as others, but we can only speak to our experience ...

Pecos: What’s in a name?

20. March 2016 Pecos 0
Something I may have mentioned before was the consternation people have with Pecos’ name. Most, out here in the east, pronounce it “Pee-cos”, which is just terrible sounding. When we adopted Pecos, VGSR described him as a white Shepherd, which was obviously inaccurate once we saw him. As I described before, he has the looks ...
