Oh man. That would be a massive undertaking as I’d literally have to go through hundreds and hundreds (maybe a thousand?) of photos to find their “derpiest” ones. I’m horrible at organizing my photos too, so that doesn’t help.
Anyway, I did manage to find one yesterday. I hope this will suffice:
There is totally ice cream made specifically for dogs on the market. I think the most common one is Frosty Paws ice cream. I see these in grocery stores. So far, I’ve gotten it on two occasions (for birthday celebrations among the 4 dogs), and all four seem to enjoy it a lot. I’ve also gotten a pint of doggie ice cream from a local pet spa before, but the name escapes me at the moment as it was a while ago (I got it for Gatsby’s first birthday).
In general, it’s not a good idea to give regular ice cream to dogs. Per the ASPCA, “pets do not possess significant amounts of lactase—the enzyme that breaks down lactose in milk—milk and other milk-based products can cause them diarrhea or other digestive upset.” ASPCA suggests “one lick or two is fine,” but Modern Dog Magazine states “Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt make great special treats. As for people, these should not be part of your dog’s everyday diet, but saved to celebrate birthdays or special occasions*" [*emphasis added]
It depends on the situation, but for the most part, yes. They’re both pretty big barkers. Scout is worse than Gatsby for sure though. She’s the worst indoors. Gatsby will only bark if someone is at the door.
I worry about the same thing — being complained about for all the barking by our surrounding neighbors — since we live in an apartment as well. And Scout has “selective” hearing too when it comes to the quiet command. (I wonder if Scout and your corg have been talking to each other?)
Hahahaha. He actually did not. He surprisingly took a while with the ice cream, mainly because it kept sliding around (I put the cup inside one of his smaller bowls). But I bet if I gave him ice cream on a cone (like in the video), it’d be gone in one bite.
*For reference, this is the video we’re referring to.
I’ll be sure to tell her this first thing tomorrow morning, as she is now asleep. But on behalf of Scout, thank you!
Everything. Even the shedding. (Shedding is part of the package.)
It really depends on where you live, so our experience with finding an apartment that is dog friendly may not necessarily be applicable to you. I have no idea of what the availability is like for pet friendly places in places other than CA. Even in CA, availability of pet friendly places varies from county to county. For us personally, it wasn’t terribly difficult finding an apartment complex within the area that we wanted to live in that met our criteria as far as being pet friendly (maximum of 2 dogs and no weight restrictions). CA is pretty pet friendly in general (lots of dog parks, dog beaches, malls that are pet friendly, etc.) so there were thankfully quite a few choices for dog friendly apartments.
