Official FAQ's for rec.pets.dogs.*

   ("Official" simply means that the faqs are crossposted to news.answers
   and automatically archived at rtfm.mit.edu.)
   
   There are a number of monthly posted FAQ files that deal with dogs in
   general. There are, in addition, many breed specific FAQs, and one on
   fleas and ticks and another on dealing with the loss of a pet. I
   maintain all of these FAQ's except for the two FAQ's on Rescue
   organizations, and some of the breed faqs. For questions on the latter
   two, contact Janice Ritter at ritter@aolnorth.com who currently
   maintains them. There is also an assortment of "unofficial" FAQ's.
   These are maintained by other individuals; I have listed them in the
   next section along with the contact email addresses.

   These faqs are written by different readers of RPD who have experience
   with the breed in question. While in many cases (not all!) I post
   them. you should direct any questions to the authors of the FAQ rather
   than automatically to me.
   
   You are encouraged to volunteer to write new breed faqs, please
   contact me at rpd-info@netcom.com for details. I am happy to help you
   archive the faqs properly; however, you may decide to do it yourself
   or keep them offical; whatever. Please do let me know about it,
   though, so I can list it here.
     _________________________________________________________________
   
Assorted Other Official FAQs

   These faqs are more generalized for pet owners of all types. These
   include:
