Q: After years of saving and planning I’m going to build a pool room in my basement, complete with a small bar and a bathroom. Since it will be mostly my friends and I using this room, I want to install a urinal in the bathroom. My wife said if it will keep us in the basement she is OK with it. What is a good choice for a residential urinal?
Hadley is a 6-month-old pug dog with a skin problem. His caretakers, Forest and Sherry, have had him since he was 8 weeks old and noticed recently that he is developing patches of missing hair on his body, some of which show reddened skin. Hadley seems otherwise unaffected although Sherry reports he does seem itchy. He has been treated with a flea preventative and, according to Forest and Sherry, he has no fleas.
Q: We recently obtained a 15-month-old rescue dog, a Shiba Inu mix, who likes to mark the bottom carpeted stair that leads to our finished basement each time we leave the house.

How do we stop this annoying habit?
