Poor dogs! 44 jammed into 3 small crates. :(
Recovery, for each, will be slow.
This footage, sadly, illustrates how such dogs need to be in snug contact with others to sleep. In a huge kennel, they puppy pile no matter what. Here is info from DogBeds-Info.com:
Dogs with arthritis or hip dysplasia need our help. There are simple changes we can make to lessen their pain now and in the future. Here are 3 proactive and productive things you can do today:
1) Prevent Slipping
Some dogs shed a lot.
Dogs who shed seasonally will be shedding soon.
The best tool to control dog shedding? The Furminator.
It is one of the best dog products and I don't just say that because the inventor is here in St. Louis, Mo.
Yes, pricey. Yes, worth it.
Pet people tend to think of dog parks like this:
Fun, relaxing puppy playgrounds where their dogs get to play happily and peacefully with others.
Dog pros tend to think of dog parks like this:
Potential canine mosh pits of uncontrolled, out-of-control dogs heading toward disaster.
How can these views be so different? Because dog pros know more about canine body language and interaction than most pet people.
Every dog of every age should know how to be crated calmly and easily.
Why? Because life happens and when it happens that is not the time to train your dog.

Below is a video that is hard to watch. In it a child is walking down the street then a dog races across the street to attack her. This is, without question, predatory aggression directed at a child.

You come home.
I watched people fail with their pups for as long as I could stand it.

You can see the problem. His human can often only find one of her shoes (or none of them) and they are inevitably lodged in hard to reach places.
What to do?
This exact toy is still in use 2.5 years later. I feed her from it a few times a week. Big hit in our household!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. A day of friends and family joining together to enjoy each other. And a feast. Our dogs are a part of this day.
