I know this may be a simple question but I want to do the right thing. I am taking Izzy to be groomed at PetSmart and was wondering if it is appropriate to tip the groomer?
I have noticed that along the top of my puppy's back he is loosing his hair...it is noticeably thinner than the rest of his body. He is 12 weeks old. Any ideas?
Something to add to the "do not feed" list! I just found out about xylitol being toxic to dogs. It's a sweetener used in candies, gum & toothpaste mostly but it can be in some peanut butter brands.
Today me and Chessie were playing and playing. We like the stairs and we were hopping on and off the last step and just wrestling and jumping.

Our mini goldendoodle is joining our family in 9 days! Does anyone have any recommendations for puppy food? I am looking for as "natural" and "additive free as possible.
