I've seen a few episodes and he really knows his stuff. Although I think they cut out a lot of him training behind the scenes with some of the more extreme cases. I've always been really good with dogs and our animals have always been well trained and well behaved, in the few shows I've seen I've learned something new.

The thing is that 99% of the time it isn't a "dog issue" it's a problem with the owners.

You know I have yet to see an episode with his Pit Bull in it, like I said I've only seen a few episodes though. :-?

My neighbours just euthanized their dog due to bone cancer. It hits close to home due to other personal struggles with cancer. He was just diagnosed two weeks ago, and he already had to be put of his misery. Cancer is a real %$^#$. Very sad, I can't imagine how it feels to effectively kill one of your "family members". :-/

my neighbors golden retreiver's getting up there in age and has a real bad case of it in his hips but he still gets around (with the help of some meds I'm sure)and seems to have a quality life so I sorta know what you're going through. Glad to hear he's doing better man. ;-D

I've mentioned this before, but my dog (black lab) has arthritis pretty bad and when fetch is the thing she loves the most, she's sore a lot of the time. She's getting some gray, losing some hair on her ears, and drinking a lot of water, all signs of senility (sp?). :,-(

Ok, I'd like some opinions on my situation with my dog. She lives to play fetch and get wet. Having arthritis, however, she's pretty sore after playing fetch. I think it's obvious, as much as I don't want it to be, that she's probably only got a couple years left. Do I play fetch with her because it's what she absolutely loves to do, knowing she'll be quite sore most of the next day, or do I not play fetch so she won't get sore?

Ginger loves to play fetch too...it's like everything to her, but I think if it was going to cause her physical pain I would probably stop...or at least cut WAY down. Maybe just throw the ball a few times and then take her for a walk to exercise her.

I agree, unless she gets some relief from medication or a simple glucosamine supplement, I wouldn't overdo it with her.
