Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Poor dog :( Are there any organisations you could report your concerns to that might check on her welfare and give the owners some 'advice'?

Re: Out of my depths

One traumatic experience can last a lifetime. With us as well It just shows the importance of careful socialisation, doesn't it? - one dive into deep water affects him permanently, one scary incident at his first go at lurcher racing has (I think) made him collar-shy for life, one emergency stop in...

Re: Out of my depths

I wonder why he sees it as dangerous? He knows that people can do many things he can't, like open and shut gates, doors and food containers, so he must think of the water - once it's above, say, knee height - as inherently dangerous. He doesn't know I can't breathe underwater. Something else I shoul...

Out of my depths

Literally out of my depths, that is - swimming in the sea :lol: OH, my mum and I met up with NaomiH and family plus Sparky in their holiday cottage close to the beach. We all went down to the beach, and I went in the sea for the first time since we've had Jasper. Or the first time over my knees, at ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

We went round to my son's yesterday evening - he and his GF are dogsitting for her cousin's spaniel, H. He rang up beforehand to ask me to bring a tick remover with me. H was lovely - he parades round with shoes, a habit I've read about before on here. When DS2 and GF get in from work (she only work...

Re: 2nd fear period

Oh bless her, they're such sensitive souls at times! I would keep everything calm, with no unexpected new experiences as far as possible, till she seems back to normal. Then if possible, I think I would gradually move the BBQ a short distance at a time to where you would want to use it, and uncover ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

We met up with NaomiH, Mr H, and the gorgeous Sparky today, as they are holidaying not that far away :D The lads were so good. Jasper, as usual, wasn't interested in playing, but Sparky didn't pester him at all but found willing victims instead. They all came back here for lunch and S was perfectly ...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

That would have had to be one very poorly fox :lol: No, it's the remains of what's usually a very large pond. I've never seen it so low as it is now: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1805/43524508071_d34bee93e7_c.jpg Lovely (but naughty) Ted later did a couple of laps round the cricket field while the...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

OH wasn't happy when I told him that the choc chip cookies he had bought looked just like what J was doing this morning :mrgreen: He did a MASSIVE poo after tea (Jasper, not OH :wink: ) but it was formed. OH says he's still producing nasty niffs but he is pretty much in the firing line... As you can...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Oh dear, Timber! Coincidentally Jasper has been having tummy troubles. This is entirely my fault - a cat-loving friend came round yesterday and as I introduced her to Monty I let my defences down and Jasper got into the airing cupboard. Being him, I couldn't risk dragging him out and he found the bi...

Not me, MPb. Hopefully it was a temproary thing - is it still happening?

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Oh, ouch!! :shock: :( Is it pointing in the right direction now? I've never broken a toe but knowing how painful a stubbed toe can be I should think it's excruciating. My guess would be that if it's still out of line it would need a good yank, otherwise just the usual RICE (I know this stuff, I watc...

Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Thank you MPb :D He's a poor thing all round really. This has come on top of his corn, the red patch in his groin (which is fading) and an eye infection - he's had a slightly gloopy eye before but this time the gloop is cream-coloured so we may end up back at the vet's tomorrow. He's rather quiet th...
