Maple is a good sleeper lol... it was so funny last night because she must have been in her REM sleep and having an exciting dream! She was growling, barking and kicking in her sleep! She'd wimper, and then back to growling lol...it was so cute and funny :) I have never seen her in such an active sleeping state but it definitely was adorable.
Is this normal?
Tell me about your experiences with this! I'd love to hear them. Thanks for posting!
I noticed today that Maple had what looks like filaments, or long thick hair growing from her two back paw pads. First we thought it might be a fungal infection and after doing some research online and looking at some pictures, it sounds like she might have Nasodigital Hyperkeratosis, an ailment that occurs in dogs paws and nose.

Maybe it's because I love my little (actually BIG) Maple so much and I am hopeful :).
For those of you who agree, please reply and…Continue
As per the vet...I prefer to use the term "big boned". She went in for an update on her vaccines and during her physical, we were informed that she is 37 lbs...which is apparently 10 lbs too much...you can't feel her ribs, she has no waist, etc..Ouch! Needless to say, when I left there I felt like a bad mom. So now Maple is on a strict diet, going on brisk walks and is only allowed 1 treat per day. Basically, she has been enrolled in doggy boot camp! So I am just wondering, for any of you…Continue
