Re: Spaying After care??

Thnx Fundog, Loved the photos, never underestimate a dog!!!! I think I got the muffin tin idea from here, not sure, any way they love it, they both work at it in different ways, one nudges with her nose and the other one uses her paws, when the balls spin the treats shoot out, hilarious.

Re: sand

We just threw in some treats, so they were on the surface to start with and they soon climbed in. We don't let them have it every day so it is a bit of a treat when they get to play in it. I am sure your dog will soon be loving the sand pit. Today they had a great time digging, they nearly emptied t...

Re: Barf and veggies

Well the raw carrot did not seem to have any adverse effect on them so I will do that again, good for them while they are teething I think.
