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

I hesitate to be sexist, but I do find most men to be re-active not pro-active, and it can take the devil of a lot of work to get them to change. Also I find as a rule that men think if it hasn't happened it won't and women think if it can happen it will. Totally agree with this. I have hammered wh...

Re: Vent!

Judgeypants people - pft, I get comments about how I should walk and the dog should ride when people see me riding my scooter and Rocky is walking - hes old and a bit wobbly and clearly looks it now. I am not old, but I am fat and wobbly. SO I often get comments about how it would be better for me ...

Re: Puppy for a lodger...

I have to say, regardless of breed, if I were ever going to get a rescue dog I'd go volunteer at the rescue and find my dog that way, I don't know if that's something he could do. I know for some people they'd feel the need to bring ALL the dogs home :lol: There would also be the danger that he fell...

Re: The ladydog and being on heat

Just for anyone reading this, the pattern Ella has followed isn't the "normal" one of becoming fertile around day 10, her fertile period has started ALOT later. Day 16, from day 14 to now there have been a couple of times each day where I've had to "move Ted along, nothing to see here" because he's ...

Re: On adopting litter mates.

Is it really litter mate syndrome or is it just very young dogs/puppies too close in age. I've seen this written about a lot. What no one ever seems to mention is "is it fair to the dog?". Raising a puppy is time consuming, especially during that key socialisation phase. Maybe there are people who a...

Re: To neuter and when to neuter..

Ted is 3, I don't believe he really stopped maturing until he was 2 1/2. Of course this is just my observation and might be complete nonsense but that's how I see it, and Ted is of course a toy breed who supposedly mature more quickly :roll: Do you know where you will end up living exactly. If not p...

Re: The ladydog and being on heat

Me again :D So she's not following the typical pattern of becoming fertile around day 10 ... Day 11 and we're still in the same "place" we were back on day one. Ted is still interested in checking her and tasting her wee but that's it. She has not shown any interest in him. She's not bleeding as muc...

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

ClareMarsh, it's day 7 for Animosh. She was on a post and swivel tie out, and I saw her trying to flirt with her neighbor (neutered) Innoko. Poor Innoko wasn't sure what to make of having her butt shoved into his face. Now the little slut is parked in a pen, just in case one of the intact lads figu...

Re: adoped pitbull help? (long post)

So based upon her day as it currently stands she is under exercised and probably a bit bored. This is in NO WAY a criticism of you as in fact it's better that you've kept her walks short given it sounds like she's overstimulated on them. In fact as you start to practise the new techniques, keeping h...

Hi there, we love information, so don't apologise for the long post. In fact I'm going to ask for some more information :lol: Could you let us know about your dog's typical day. I know you said you spend a lot of time together but what time does she get up and go to bed. Where does she sleep. What e...

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

I'm kind of interested to see how my London vet reacts if he discovers I have two entire dogs of the opposite sex, I think his head my spin round/off. He'll probably assume that you couldn't possibly be capable of stopping Ted getting his wicked way, or that you'll think they won't do it because th...
