SlimDoggy Sabbatical

Those of you that follow us regularly may have noticed we haven’t been posting recently. We wanted to give you an update and fill you in on what’s been happening here at SlimDoggy. We have been busy with our dogs, Jack & Coco. Jack is recovering nicely from his toe amputation, but he... »

Jack Loses a Toe

Jack Loses a Toe

Jack has lost a toe…no it hasn’t been misplaced, it’s been amputated.     Our story begins a few months ago when we started taking Jack to a dog gym/vet who offered water treadmill therapy. His hind end has been getting weaker and our regular vet suggested some additional... »

SlimDoggy Jack Health Update

SlimDoggy Jack Health Update

We’ve had some health issues with both Jack & Maggie lately and a lot has happened since our last post about them, so I thought I’d provide an update and outlook. I’ll start with Jack and provide a post for Maggie after her Doctor’s appointment this week.     J... »

What Non-Dog Owners Don’t Get

What Non-Dog Owners Don’t Get

I remember when Tino developed glaucoma and was going blind. It was a pretty traumatic experience – more for US than for Tino. He actually adapted quite easily and quickly. But for us, it was hard because I felt such empathy for him. I wanted to baby him and take care of him, but realized that... »

Beware of Foxtails

Beware of Foxtails

A few years ago I wrote about the dangers of foxtails. I told a story about when foxtails actually benefited us as it allowed us to catch the two strays we’d been after for a few days. One of them (Bernie) had a foxtail between his toes that had festered and swollen his paw so large he couldn&... »

What’s in a Bark?

What’s in a Bark?

Dogs bark. It’s a fact of life. Some bark more than others, some howl, some yip, some have a deep resounding bark. It’s one of the ways that dogs communicate with us.   Sally was probably what I would call an average barker. She’d let out a bark or two when someone knocked at ... »

Does your dog talk to you?

Does your dog talk to you?

I know dogs don’t really “talk”, at least not in English…or any other human language. But do they still talk to us with their barks, their eyes, their body?   I noticed something about Jack recently that has sparked this post. Jack developed some incontinence issues abou... »

SlimDoggy Health Check: Pancreatitis Part 2

SlimDoggy Health Check: Pancreatitis Part 2

Last week Jack got diagnosed with Pancreatitis. He’s been on anti-nausea medicine and a bland diet since then and is doing much better. We wrote about Jack and some initial information about pancreatitis and today we want to follow up with more details on the causes, treatment and prevention. ... »

SlimDoggy Health Check: Pancreatitis Part 1

SlimDoggy Health Check: Pancreatitis Part 1

Jack has been diagnosed with Pancreatitis. Never a dull moment around the SlimDoggy household. We’ve never had a dog with pancreatitis before, we’ve only dealt with Jack’s IBS which is actually pretty mild, so this is all new to us.   It started Sunday night about 8pm – ... »

2015 in Review

2015 in Review

For the 2014 New Year, we asked our readers to share a photo of their dogs proclaiming their resolutions for the year. Many of you participated and we hope you go back and look at your resolutions and see how you did.   Last year, we didn’t make any ‘formal’ resolutions for 20... »

We haven’t joined Wordless Wednesday for a while, but I think this photo series is appropriate – I don’t need any words for you to understand how Jack feels about the Santa hat.     »

Jack’s Letter to Santa

Jack’s Letter to Santa

Dear Santa, I have been an EXCELLENT dog this year and have followed every single one of the house rules. Mom even wrote about it: “Rule Follower and Rule Breaker” so there is documented proof.   I have: Followed mom everywhere she goes as closely as I can even though it gets crowde... »

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving

Jack and Maggie want to wish all of our family, friends, dog buddies and even the cats who follow us, a very Happy Thanksgiving. Remember not to eat too much, but if you do, make sure to get out for an afternoon walk and work off those extra calories.   The last two years, we published our Than... »

SlimDoggy Jack’s 5 Favorite Activities

SlimDoggy Jack’s 5 Favorite Activities

I have to admit that Maggie has been getting most of the attention around the house lately…and many of our blog posts are related to her and her care. Jack is demanding equal time, so today is Jack’s day, devoted to all things Jack. We thought a good place to start would be a review of h... »

Special Care for your Senior Pets

Special Care for your Senior Pets

We have had nothing but senior pets in our family since we adopted Becca in 2009. Tino was already eleven when we adopted her after our Sally passed at age 12 and Becca was 8 at the time. Jack and Maggie were both around 8 when we adopted them too, so we have lots of experience in caring for senior ... »

Is Jack Going Deaf?

Is Jack Going Deaf?

Friends have asked how Jack is doing through all of the family upheaval surrounding Maggie’s illness. Jack can be an anxious dog, but we’ve worked to keep his routine the same which alleviates his anxiety. He still gets his morning walk at the park, sometimes with Maggie, sometimes just ... »

Changes to our Routine: Casual Walking

Changes to our Routine: Casual Walking

Since Maggie was diagnosed with OSA, we’ve been adjusting our exercise routine with her. We’ve stopped running with her and reduced the length and speed of her daily walks. Jack has benefited from our reduced routine since his age is starting to show and he doesn’t really need to r... »

Choosing the Right Dog Bed

Choosing the Right Dog Bed

There are so many dog bed choices out there, and it seems fancier – and more expensive beds are introduced all the time. Years ago when I had my first Lab, Maxine, she slept on the floor with a couple of blankets. Sally & Tino both slept on the bed, although we had a couple of dog beds in... »

Our Trip to Big Bear

Our Trip to Big Bear

We just returned from our annual trip to Big Bear Lake. Of the four of us, we think that Maggie probably had the best time of all of us.     She really took to the water this year – as soon as she saw it she waded in a few feet, then a few feet more and then off she went swimming awa... »

Is There Such a Thing as a Leisurely Walk with a Lab?

This is one of my favorite pinterest images – this aerial view of a walk with a Lab, with the Lab going all over the place. It’s funny mostly because it is so true.   Jack is a pretty methodical walker, he walks mostly by my side, and I can predict which bushes he is going to stop a... »

Unfortunately, the answer is yes, they can. The disorder, called Canine Cognitive Dysfunction (CCD) in dogs is very similar to the human Alzheimer’s disease. A recent study at the University of Sydney showed that by age 15, over 40% of dogs display at least some of these symptoms.   Sympt... »
