Hey, I think I messed up on submitting a guess the breed thing. Do I need to put my dogs weight and height on? Also how do you submit more than one photo for guess the breed thing, or do I submit each photo separately? Hope this makes sense thanks!

Height, weight, personality, the answer, and make sure you indicate that it is for the game as well. Idk how to do more than one image, everyone seems to be having issues with that. If you send them separately, I can collaborate them for you.

Rowan, my 2 year old son. People call him handsome all the time so I thought he might fit in here.

I’m unsure of his breed, so If you want to help me guess his breed he was listed at the shelter as a shepherd/akita mix. He is 70 lbs, loving and friendly temperament but he will growl and bark at “scary” looking people. Slight curled tail, black spots on tongue, pretty wrinkly thick guy. I suspect he is a shepherd/husky x chow/lab mix.

Do you have any particular opinion on Boston Terriers? And also, what breeds did they come from? I’ve heard that they weren’t really bred for any purpose. I didn’t even know that happened, I thought all breed were bred with specific purposes in mind.

They sure are energetic little dogs! Boston Terriers go along with my bulldog post yesterday. Unfortunately, as a brachycephalic breed, they are prone to eye ulcers, breathing difficulties, and 90% need to be birthed via c-section.

Above, a Boston Terrier by Waldek Dąbrowski

They actually began as 40lb Olde Boston Bulldogges. They, like all other bully breeds in the past, were used for dog fighting. The Boston was a combination of the (now extinct) white English Terrier & the English Bulldog. 

Above, an Olde Boston Bulldogge by Sue Dumais

These guys had a stronger bulldog appearance, but were bred with French Bulldogs to size them down to the petite Boston Terriers we know today. Olde Boston Bulldogges continued to be bred separately, and can still be seen today.

Above, a Boston Terrier by Agata Bednarska

These puppers were recognized as the first US breed in 1893! They were also the first non-sporting breed to be bred in the US.

sometimes when my mom’s cooking, she pours raw egg whites into my dog’s dish. im worried that my dog might get sick from this. is it an ok thing to do?

Yes, raw eggs in moderation are safe. They should just be kept refrigerated to prevent bacteria growth.

Dogs don’t really have to worry about salmonella, though, because their digestive tract is much shorter than ours, not allowing much time for bacteria growth, and they are more acidic which helps kill bacteria. But to give them a bit of an advantage, I think organic eggs, in hopes for a healthier hen, is what some people opt for.

Gunner is 2 years old, 27 inches at the withers, and 57-60 pounds! He is extremely rambunctious (a forever puppy, if you will), extremely keen on licking your face off and loving you, extremely driven by food, extremely interested in rodents… You get the picture! Outside, he’d run until he died if he could. Inside, he’s an incredibly needy whiny baby who just wants to snuggle. He loves everybody he meets, but has an extra special amount of love and specific loyalty to us, his family. He’s also very sensitive to and aware of our emotions. He can be picky about other dogs, but is usually fairly neutral and cares more about being with us, anyway (and our other dog, who he gets along with very well).

hey, can i ask for a bit of advice? my 10 year old chihuahua has made a habit over the last 2 years of taking individual pieces of food out of her bowl and throwing them all over the house and it’s getting really annoying to sweep ’em back into the bowl all the time. I was thinking maybe switching to wet food? but if she tries the same thing it’ll make clean up a real nightmare. Any idea what the cause is and what i can do?

Maybe there’s just too much food? If he isn’t eating, then he isn’t hungry, but perhaps wants to make sure he will be able to find it later when he is? I’m all about feeding on a schedule, that way your dog will actually eat when you put food down, and also not eat too much.  

I wouldn’t switch to wet food – you don’t want to create a picky eater. I don’t know what kind of food you’re feeding, but changing to better quality might help. If you’re already feeding good quality, then switch up the protein. I changed my dog to a whitefish formula and he went from having bouts of not eating, to licking and rolling in his food >.< He reaallyyy likes it.
