    Ha, sounds like a good read. I wonder if she can answer the question, why does my dog constantly lick himself, um, inappropriately?

    Great thanks! Rolling around in animal carcasses is such a bothersome habit. I’ve always wondered if there was some way to cure that.

    The write has pointed out some interesting points. I like to see a mix of golden retriever and beagle. I think they would look really cute together. A combination of cute height(beagle), adorable eyes(golden) and a very sweet disposition. For sure that would be a very good site to see.

    Its nice knowing a lot of interesting and knowledgeable things about our pet dogs. Even though we may know some basic info’s about our beloved dogs, I know this is not enough. We have to have new and useful information at hand so that they can be healthy and so that we are fully aware when they are happy or feeling down. We should be able to understand them more than other people do. 🙂
