I would be just like you! Ewwwww, I'd hate a bird crapping all over the house!

Sounds like a nice outside cage is just what the doctor ordered!

No complaints anyone!!! I swear our new puppy has IBD! With his symptoms, you'll be certain that's what he has! He's been to the vet a number of times, lots of tests, eating a special easily digested food, pills for D, D 5-7 times/day (sometimes more!), giving him rice to help offset, we feed him an enormous amount and he's still skin and bones, etc., etc.! Some of you may remember, my last dog also had a brief colitis episode! What is it about my house?!?!?!?

Maybe he's gluten intolerant? I do know of several dogs who are. Strange, but true!

Whether IBD or gluten intolerance, it's just too crazy!!! While we, at home, all love our pets, my husband and daughter, in particular, are really 'into it' - training, watching dog shows (on tv), the right breeder, the right exercise (not too much, not too little!!! ), right diets, etc. You can only imagine the poop inspections going on! My hubby and daughter were actually outside, the other night, with a flashlight to inspect and discuss! ...OMG, just give me my wine!!


By the way, I'm not totally cold-hearted!! I do hope he's okay... I just think it's too bizarre...

LMFAO...Sorry to laugh at your expense Tess.

They say dogs sense things...are you sure you picked him and he didn't pick you? You now, knowing that you have already researched IBD and have extensive experience?

Upset mom,
Lorikeets are the worst birds for house pets. They are very sweet but because of their type of diet their poop is extremely watery. Other birds make better pets. We had a conure. She was wonderful and quite clean only pooped in her cage.
But speaking of poop, the kids convinced me to buy a chinchilla. Now chinchillas are the cutest sweetest animals except for one problem which I did not find out about until we got her home. They have no anal sphincter. The poop just falls out and boy oh boy do they poop. There is chinchilla poop everywhere. It is like small little chocolate chips so they do clean up pretty easily but it is just out of control. It is actually driving me nuts ( kind of glad we started this conversation because I really needed to rant about this) I don't know what to do. She is so cute and sweet and she just loves us. She sits on our shoulders and jumps around us when we let her out. I am very torn because I want to get rid of her hut I feel bad the kids love her and she loves us. Her poop is everywhere and it even falls out of the cage by the ton. She is in my younger sons room and there is poop in his shelves and in his closet. No matter how much I clean I find more!

Believe it or not chinchillas poop more then rabbits! The whole reason I let them talk me into a chinchilla is I am allergic to rabbits and chins are hypoallergenic. Chinchilla for sale! Anybody want one?

As the husband of a vet, I can say with absolute conviction...all you animal lovers are nuts!! Even with a lovable name like Dex, it's still a bird shitting in the house! If some random bird came in a window and shit all over the house, you'd hit it with a tennis racket or something! Deb(wife) hugs her new kitten and tells me it helps lower blood pressure...bull hockey!!! I walk in and see it sinking its claws into the leather couch...it definitely does not lower mine!! 'Bout time to move outside kitty!!

We have very strict quarantine laws in Australia, so chinchilla's being rodents they are banned.

Now I am happy they are banned.

OMG! LMAO at all the diapers and comments! Shame both my daughter's birthday and Father's Day has passed... they probably would've appreciated doggy diapers!

Last night, when it was poop time for our puppy, BOTH hubby and daughter went out (it's an 'event' for them), as my daughter was leaving the room she said 'you know, mine and dad's goal is to find a good shit'! LMAO!!! (I had to laugh, thinking about what I had posted here yesterday!)
