Dog Has Lost Appetite After Being Spayed?My 11 month old Westie had an ovarian sparing spay done at the end of January. The first few days were rough, we called the vet a few times and none of the things suggested worked. We went to the ER where she was given better pain meds, anti-nausea meds and anti-inflammatory meds. As soon as we gave her these she started doing better and her diarrhea went away and she started eating again.


A porcelain doll in blue with dark hair.

Identifying a Porcelain Doll?I am looking for any information about this doll, including value. She was given to my daughter around 15-18 years ago by an older lady that collected them. She didn't give us any information about the doll. The head, lower arms and lower legs are porcelain. The rest of the body is just stuffed. The stamp on the back of the neck is hard to read, but it looks like F 98 006.

Potty Training Advice for an 8 Month Old Puppy?I have an 8 month old blue Pit/American Bully. We began training her at 6 weeks. She does good for the most part, but still will pee or poop in the house. Our vet told us to crate her when we're not around and to confine her to a smaller area in the house until shegets better. She doesn't bark when she needs to go out, she just paces and if we don't catch her it's too late.

Painting the Top and Bottom Cabinets Different Colors?I did a grey paint wash on the kitchen floor, the walls are painted a grey, it's so hard to see it all, but the counter top is a natural wood slab, blue is my favorite color so I did the bottom cabinets using a few different techniques. Now I am doing the top ones in a grey lighter than the blue, but as dark as I can to set them apart some from the walls.
