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

My parents is my fall back plan, but their house isn't really equipped to have me back so trying everything to avoid it. They are talking about selling their diamonds as well just incase I'm in a real desperate situation, but I would rather they didn't have to do that. My ex can't just stop paying ...

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

Paying the mortgage each month is cheaper than renting, especially with a dog in tow. It is also more secure. I can't afford it as of right now since I still don't have an income, but I couldn't afford to rent right now either. When you get a job you might be able to afford it then? , I'm just worr...

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

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

Trying to just cope with each day as it comes at the moment, feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. Ex is threatening to try and sell the house if I can't buy him out, so that's also a worry. It is in both our names though so I at least have that. Joined a meetup last week to try...

Question about Lara?

My cousins delema about the health of the Bernese has made me think about Lara, obviously Lara is pretty healthy apart from her kidney issues she is otherwise healthy. And it made me think about the German shepherd in general, what are your thoughts on if the GSD is in the same league as a Bernese v...

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

Me and my dog haven't done much today, or much for the last few days, or weeks. I've suddenly realised that Merlin might have... Dare I say it... Grown up! He's still Mr Playful and enjoys his long morning walks, but in the house he's now happy to relax and chill when I'm busy writing / job hunting...

Re: How unhealthy are Bernese mountain dogs?

The owners they spoke too said that Berneses go to the vets far more than most other breeds.

Yes they will be taking there dog to a vet but they don't want a breed that goes more than most.

Re: Let's talk sighthounds

I ws also thinking this morning that training is a bit like sculpture. A lump of marble and a lump of clay can both be sculpted into something beautiful, but if you try to use a chisel on soft clay or mould marble with your hands, you're not going to get great results :wink: Yes like nettle says be...

Re: How unhealthy are Bernese mountain dogs?

Depends what you mean by "healthy". It might be possible to find some that are less unhealthy than others, but it would not be possible to find one with an average-for-a-dog lifespan and free from inheritable illnesses. There fine with short lifespan, by healthy I mean one that won't be going to th...

Re: How unhealthy are Bernese mountain dogs?

A very unhealthy breed with a short lifespan in comparison to most other dogs, and plenty of information in the public domain. the Bernese is not a very unhealthy breed and the health issues are world wide not just in the UK Contradictory. Either it isn't unhealthy or there are worldwide health iss...
