  1. Cleaning without bathing

    Dog Grooming Forum

  8. Fostering looks like a nightmare to me.

    Dog Rescue Forum
    I know it's wonderful to do and rewarding, but it seems likely to contain some painful scenarios. From the Ysabel327 thread: What if I got an very scared dog? After months, it finally bonds with me but is otherwise unadoptable. And to force it into a new home would be so traumatic, that I'd...
