    We have a 3 year old bundle of energy named Bruce. He is a Malte-Poo (Maltese/Toy Poodle). We have had him since he was about 3 months I believe.

    Ok, so about 8 months ago, I adopted Loki, my Labrador/GreyHound Mix. He's always been needy and loving and I honestly don't mind it. But, for some reason, for the past 2 weeks, he refuses to sleep in his bed that is placed out in the living room. He's never had an issue with this. However...

    My dog is 15 months old. A lab/chowchow/Burmese Mountain Dog mix. A few days ago, he started scratching at his eye and having some slight clear drainage. Thinking it was allergies, we went to the vet and they gave him a subdermal shot to help ease the swelling and allergic reaction. This...
