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

Lovely photo! Jasper the big wuss. A greyhound I know tembles when she gets upset about something, is it a sighthound thing? Just stands there and goes 'not ok, not ok' until humans help her out of the situation! Merlin managed to get hold of some shoes I put into the wash, but they are yet to be wa...

Lol maybe! Either way both dogs left unscathed so I was thankful. :lol:

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

Well I found out Merlin's tolerance level when it comes to high value foods. He was playing with this dog and then they both stumbled upon what I hope was some chargrilled chicken. Merlin snagged it and ran off. The other dog, however, was, well, a mini Schnauzer. Need I say more? Persistant little ...

Awww they sound so stuck in their ways. Love that they collided, such a stubborn thing to do. :lol:

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

Thanks! The interview ran into over time because we were all having a bit of a laugh, so I guess that was good. :lol: They are a COE school and they have their ethics and morals, originally they spelt 'Chris' so they had a quick think for what a T could be, because 'whos Chris?'. I actually had to w...

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

Thank you! I am very excited and a little stress has been lifted off my shoulders. I'm still applying for jobs in the mean time and will be going on more interviews until this role is signed and accounted for. It relies on one of their current TA's passing her skills test to go onto her PGCE, but th...

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

Ooo new house! All the best. I see you have all the important furniture in. :lol: Took Merlin out last night from 7-10, was lovely and cool as the wind arrived. My god was the dog in desperate need of that walk. :lol: He ran into a dog he has a massive crush on and was just a right little sycophant....

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

Thank you Nettle. :D I do try my best with him, I chose him after all he had no choice in the matter! :lol:

@Judy Merlin always brings his ice lollies onto the rug, where the leftovers proceed to get stuck and I have to peel the ice off. :roll:

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

Got a job interview tomorrow morning, and my lovely dog trainer (who was my character reference) has said to speak to her when I am wanting to get involved with dogs in the future. Things are looking up! It'll be enough to cover the mortgage & running the house with some left over. :D It is still fa...

Re: Dog eating

Sorry you were offended, though to be frank I'm not sure why criticising a nation's policies on animal welfare would be cause for offense (or any important matter, really). Feel free to criticise the UK anytime, we have plenty of issues. I in no way view a nation as a reflection of its people, just ...

Re: Dog eating

Boiled alive?! The US just keeps getting better and better... Does make me fear for animal rights if this brexit mistake goes through, as most of our animal rights legislation comes from them. I am also a huge believer that when it comes to animal rights religious exemptions should be made a thing o...

Re: Dog eating

Well it is illegal to go out and hunt for your own food here in that way, and I don't agree with hunting in general (especially when its done for fun). But I don't have a moral issue with someone who killed a stray dog humanely to consume it, like someone who shoots a rabbit for dinner. It's weird a...

Re: Dog eating

Some animals cope better at being farmed than others. Dogs aren't herd animals, they naturally want to travel for long distances, and they have dynamics in the 'pack' that are counter intuitive to large scale farming. They're not grazers, they are predatory scavangers and hunters. Grazers, biologica...

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

I think its more the case I have no option but to try and be strong. I'll worry about letting myself get upset once I'm financially secure. :lol:

Got plenty of choccy biscuits to keep my coffees company. :)

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

Yeah I'm planning a trip there if things really do start to get messy. Right now I've got backup plans financially and as a home if the worst happens. Luckily we moved back to be close to my parents, otherwise I would have been totally stuffed. Lovely pictures by the way Judy, that water looks like ...
