"Wish I had some advice about biting. My Bailey became aggressive with other dogs as she aged and felt insecure. But I've never had a dog aggressive toward humans. I've seen food/treat-related aggression in friends'…"
"Thank you, Roxi. Losing my dog was much harder/sadder than I thought it would be. She was an eleven-year-old Golden Retriever and I've never had a Golden live past 11. And I'd had 'funny feelings' about her…"
"I have many wonderful memories of my husband, myself and our dog Bailey romping in the Eastern Sierras. My husband died almost two years ago, my Bailey last month. Yes, the second year is hard. Thank you for the Forest Service…"
"Hey, Melissa. Yes. True. Moving home would be comforting, simpler and less expensive lifestyle. I'd be near my sisters whom I adore. But hard to think about living 3,000 miles away from my son who's been my…"

"I've gained so much weight this past year (year number two). I decided that when I buy cookies, when I just absolutely have to have cookies, I'll eat two or three and when I get home, leave the rest in the car. This sort of…"
"I also have conflicting feelings about before and after. Sometimes I accidentally sign my before-marriage name, because I'm not married anymore, not that person anymore. I always catch myself, quickly realize the error.…"
