And now things have got worse! Current tenancy we needed to stick out until 30th June. Teagan has chewed up the kitchen and the girls have had enough. I have to find somewhere to live with Teagan on my own or I can live with them if she goes. I can't lose her. Does anyone have any links for dog sitt...

Not had experience but have heard the term - I am led to believe it is something like a prolapse of the third eyelid? Not sure about it being common in puppies (I have a beagle and read it can affect beagles and droopy-eyed breeds of dogs more commonly). I think it can be 'fixed' by a stitch to hold...

Yep - over confident and cocky you got her spot on! Back on a long line for now, I'm hoping she settles down a bit and it's just an adolescent stage but she's definately become much more stubborn lately. My housemates have noticed it too, when they ask her to sit, she'll check their hands to see if ...

I have a beagle.... and a concrete yard :D I remember reading about them digging though one suggestion I remember is to give them somewhere they CAN dig so your garden doesn't get wrecked... like a child's sandpit filled with peat and sand and their favourite toys? Sure there will be more experience...

Too independent?

Last year before I got Teagan we looked after a black lab called Dana (affectionately known as Danabanana hence my username!) for a few months - she was being trained up as an assistance dog fo the disabled. We had her from the age of 8 months to just under a year. Dana was great in the house - but ...

aw I thought epupz was quite good! Anyone can advertise like on champdogs and yes there are rubbish breeders but I found a great one I am still in touch with now... apply the tips above - don't go anywhere with a discount for no papers, anyone who wants money before you see the litter etc... Althoug...

well that's kind of a relief! She hasn't actually eaten a frog, just had a good chew. Had visions of her catching bubonic plague or something! She's up to date with worming x

Dead stuff

Is it dangerous at all? Asking because Teagan has a talent for finding dead frogs in the park I take her to - nice squashed/run over ones that have been there several days and dried out in the sun. Sometimes I don't realize what it is she's picked up til I see her running past with a pair of feet st...

I've seen a Dobie undocked... looks like a Dobe with a tail!

I wouldn't want to buy a pup without seeing mum, preferably dad too...
