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

Well, we had a slightly traumatic walk this morning. Timber decided to chomp on the very, very, sloppy poo that another dog had done. Well I hope it was a dog. Or at least I think I hope that :roll: . Being so soft as to be almost diarrhoea he couldn't 'drop it' - not that he is very reliable at tha...

Clever Jasper!

Today I think I will ask Mr F to drop me and Timber off on our coastal path about 4 miles from home and we will walk back. I know that doesn't sound far but Timber only has little legs!

Re: Seeking advice: very anxious small rescue dog

I am still finding my way around but I can't seem to find out why sometimes the little icons to the left of some threads seem to have a scrolling text image and some static.

Hello!

Hi all, my first post - very pleased to have joined your forum. I have a small terrier thing called Timber (a cross between a Jack Russell and a toilet brush) who is great fun - by no means perfect but very enthusiastic. Looking forward to learning and hopefully being able to contribute where I can.
