Can I just give a little warning on rope toys... I don't mean to be the voice of doom here, but please be careful with rope toys and your dogs. I was speaking to my friend the other day, and asked how her neighbours dog was... he is a lovely bullie boy, big lad, very chunky and sooo loving. Anyway, ...

Derrick was given one of those rope toys for his birthday, it lasted all of 15 minutes, before it died a million deaths. I now only buy rubber toys. Its less messy :wink: One of my previous bullterriers, could ruin any toy you gave her. I bought her an indestructaball as they were called. Cost me £...

Lots of folks have same breeds that don't get along, and others have them that get on like a house on fire. As said before it depends on the dogs personalities. My pair get on great, and they are always together. There are certain dogs my Ethel won't entertain at all, and there are some she would ha...

I did some clicker training with my AB Ethel... she is quite clever and picked it up straight away, but I also have a Bullie, and he is as thick as pig poop.... he still hasn't got the hang of it. lol. The obedience class should help you along with the clicker anyway, so dont worry too much. I'm sur...

The only advice I can give you is DON'T DO IT :lol: :lol: :lol: I tried this years ago with a friends dog, and spent the whole night being slobbered on, trumped on, and I woke up in the morning with a dog bum in my face! :shock: The thought of camping in a tent, with my pair of sods, would fill me w...

The only time really my hubby ever lets out the bloodcurdling screams is if one of the mutleys jumps up on the bed while he is in it, and lands on his crown jewels :D
I find this hillariously funny, and he doesn't :lol: :lol: :lol:

P.s. Spydre... your AB x looks very mush like my Ethel :wink:

I dont think he was after ciggies either. My Ethel is allways very very vocal when it comes to visitors. But we had a spate of robberies round our way.. you know the usual pinching kids bikes from the back yards. So I am in my dining room one day and I hear Ethel let off a low grumble, and she ran s...

Most difficult thing about owning a dog for me is being able to go out in anything dark coloured and not get little stubby white hairs all over me that take hours to get off. Not being able to eat anything without having 10 feet of slobber drooling from their lips. Having to clear up poop the size o...

Pre it becoming illegal, my friends Borders went to ground after foxes! They will also retrieve fur and feather and work reliably with her ferrets (when she had ferrets). I do despair of dogs who can in NO way do the job they were bred to do trotting round teh show ring, but then the working versio...

Can I just say... this sounds just the same as my AB Ethel. She is the exact same when we have anyone come to the house. She has been very well socialised and behaves totally different when we are out and about.. on the meet and greet. Get her back home however.. and its a different story. Now I kno...

Thanks for that Cracker... but he doesnt actually have any other issues regards breathing or sleeping. In fact Ive never known a bullie sleep as much as him. He can sleep for 10 or 12 hours a night and doesnt wake up. He also sleeps during the day, and like I say can sleep anywhere lol. He also does...
