Getting to the heart of our love for dogs

I looked into the encyclopaedic brown eyes of my dog, Millie, and a broad smile appeared on my puss. Dogs. Where would we be without them? Search dogs, dogs that aid the blind, and so many other dogs that are there to provide a helping paw in society.

Feral dogs forage for scraps, thrusting their snouts through a dusting of snow. Afghanistan's Meteorological Power says this winter has not produced historic lows, but is forecast to be colder than the earlier few.

Theo: Dog's life puts insomnia fears at rest

I'm not much of a TV watcher. After Animal Planet, it all pretty much turns to mush (not that there's anything wrong with some well-flavored mush)

Once you subtract the depressing news that dogs (and most people) don't care and can't do anything about; the "reality" shows (which don't show any reality I'm familiar with - I mean why don't those people just leave the island with the TV crew?) and Judge Judy (actually, she's amusing) and what do you have?

Animal Planet.

Not that I don't get a chance to watch TV. It's on pretty much non-stop around my house especially during baseball season. On occasion my master just leaves it on when she exits thinking it will salve the pain of the stinging "I'll be back soon - whatever that means; and will keep me company while she is gone.

Company? Really? A bone is company; a stuffed animal that I can rip apart is company; some low lying coffee cake is company (well, solace anyway) but what I mostly do when the TV is on is go to sleep.

Does anyone know of a natural sleep aid for an older dog?

My 11 year old yellow lab has started panting at night. Usually once around 11:00, and then very early in the morning, around 5. She'll be sound asleep and then all of a sudden start rapidly panting. If I give her a benadryl, she settles down and goes

She may also benefit from additional


That's something you should be asking your vet. I don't think giving her Benadryl daily is a good idea just so she'll sleep longer.


Benedryl is still one of the safest. Ther are herbal remedies & food supplements, but it depends on the dog's physiology.

Does anyone have any tips for getting my 17 year old dog to sleep through the night?

I have a 17 year old Bichon Frise. He has terminal cancer, by way of a huge tumor on his front shoulder. The cancer is inoperable. He was diagnosed over a year ago and the vet said that because of the size and location of the tumor that it would be


Older dogs can become senile just like people. It sounds like that's what may be happening to him. Give the dementia medication a chance to work.

Do not use any sleep-aids without consulting with your vet first. At his age, it may just


Could you crate him in another part of the house, where he would be warm, but not wake you up even if he barked?

Sometimes they get uncomfortable due to arthritis and all the other things that are getting ol, and are comforted by our


You really do need to be getting more quality sleep, and obviously you're not getting it like this. Have you discussed this at length with your vet? It sounds to me like maybe your dog is in pain, and 'feels' like he needs to go out more often. Is
