    I’m not really sure what’s up with my 5 year old chihuahua. She’s acting pretty normal but lost interest in playing a few days ago. She won’t fetch, which is weird because she never turns down a game of fetch. She doesn’t want any of her toys actually. Even the new ones. I’m starting to get...

    One of my dogs slept perfectly well in a crate at night by our bed for years. Then, she suddenly started to pant ALL night long and it drove me so batty that I succumbed and started letting her sleep in bed with us. Then the second dog joined us. We upgraded to 3 dogs last November and ended...
