Re: Sensitive itchy skin - any food recommendations please?

You’re welcome. I can’t stand Facebook. I hope you have some luck with the diet. Maybe going back to basics and starting with just one ingredient like say, chicken or turkey meat and adding more things in would be the way to go. In the meantime the ear solv might help with the symptoms. Good luck- I...

Re: Sensitive itchy skin - any food recommendations please?

Hi, I haven’t been in here for ages either but look in occasionally. I haven’t got much to add about diet but I use a brilliant powder called ‘ear solv’. The web site is a bit dramatic and you think it sounds like a con but it isn’t. It does what they claim. One pot has lasted me years so I am assum...

Re: Where is everyone?

Hi, It’s sad isn’t it? I still check in everyday and am sad to see the lack of posts but then don’t post myself. I don’t like Facebook and don’t use it but I guess other people do and that’s where they’ve gone. The photo problem has killed things too. Does anyone know of another way to put photos on...

Re: #banshockcollars

Thank you Linny. Please can everyone share this with Facebook groups, re-tweet if you are on twitter, tell doggy friends, make other halves sign it etc... It’s on nearly 7500 signatures and if it gets to 10,000 it will get a response. It’s proven that they are not effective, are cruel and can cause ...

#banshockcollars

Hi everyone, Tess and I still check in everyday and read all the posts. Anyway I am compelled to ask you all to sign the petition to ban shock collars (the cause of some very heated discussions on here a while back). It may finally happen as it has in Scotland and Wales. The Dogs trust and the Kenne...

Re: What's the chances.

That's amazing. It's a funny and natural thing to wish for them to meet a brother or sister. We met Tessy's brother which was very odd. We passed him in the car on the way to work near to where we got her from and he was so like her we stopped the car and jumped out and accosted the poor woman. We a...

Re: Toilet training at 8 weeks!

Other than the obvious thing of cleaning up really well (biological washing powder and surgical spirit), I think that, once they have weed somewhere and not been challenged, they think its ok to go there and do it again. I found with Tess that if she managed to go and I didn't catch her, despite tho...

Tick advice please

Hi folks, I'm just after a bit of advice about ticks. Apparently there's lots about this year and Tess had one on her head tonight. I was just tucking her in bed and stroking between her eyes and I felt a bump. Luckily I put the main light on to investigate and there it was. It wasn't engorged. It w...

Re: What kind of coat will he have??

How gorgeous, lucky you. I think he will be a fleecy like my Tess who doesn't shed or smell doggy. (Doesn't mean another fleecy one won't). She starts to mat if she gets too long so she's trimmed every 8-10 weeks with regular brushing and sometimes a shower in between, sometimes not. But as you say,...

Re: Ears

I use Earsolve. It is a powder like thornit powder. Tess used to get brown gunk and this clears it up straight away. She hasn't had a problem for a couple of years since using it to clear up the last one so we haven't needed to use it for ages. All the blurb about it sounds too good to be true but i...

Re: To Puppy or not to Puppy, that is the question!

They obviously don't understand doodle love. They are not just ordinary dogs- they are so clever and sensitive. It would be awful not to consider how she will cope with it. I think if you manage the puppy stage and make sure Poppy has space and can get away and still gets lots of love and attention,...

Anyone up for being snapped starkers!!!

Well I read that the cockapoo community have made a calendar for charity in the style of calendar girls with their poos and props covering their naughty bits. They all look very splendid and gorgeous. :shock: Should we follow suit? :shock: Any volunteers? :oops: :shock: :lol: (Joking! :oops:) At lea...
