i will definitely take a look at them. I have a Maltese and he has knee problems, so if im going to get another pupper, I think im going to move away from a "purebred" dog.

Ya. Allie never had joint problems. A few years ago I started giving her a soft jell of Omega 3. Fish oil. Supposed to be good for their joints without smoking one.

They are not hunters. Think of them as a clean up crew. In the wild they eat dead or decaying animals, plants...In captivity they eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, wet and dry cat food as babies and dry dog food as an adult. Rapashy makes a great powder food you mix with water and turns into a gel. Rapashy also makes foods for fish!

What is their life span and do they always have to be caged?
In captivity they can live 20-30 years. Most are wild caught so their temperament depends on how much you handle them. I can take her out and hold/pet her. She sits on my shoulder and watches tv with me. We even enjoy fish tanks together!! image000000(5).jpg

Ya I sometimes lift doggie and she just stares into my coral reef. Years ago I brought my sister's Golden Retriever over for a visit. He looked into the tank. Saw the fish. He looked puzzled when he saw them swim away. I think he thought they were birds and did not swoop away like a bird...you know... with gravity. Sis has a bird cage.
