Re: A new dog does help when you think nothing will

How lovely to hear from you and Maisie, I think most of us know the heartbreak of losing a member of the family which is exactly what our dogs become. I still miss our Golden Retriever many years on but having her with us for 15 years took some getting over. Holly our 1/2 Aussie doodle now 6 has del...

Nothing like a bit of sunshine, Holly’s limp is a lot better only after a long curled up sleep does she do a few limps then it frees up, wish my body did the same.

Dandelion leaf also acts as a diuretic, making it useful in cases of arthritis, kidney stones, congestive heart failure and gallbladder disease. ... The root is a liver tonic and helps t...

Re: Another update

Oh Freddy you have been a true doodle these two years but you sound as if you inherited all of the doodle traits possible. It does not make you any less lovable though. The light bulb should come on any time soon, I remember Holly well in a haze of brandy and vallium ( I wish ) at 6+ she is a deligh...

Re: 1st birthday!

Belated Happy Birthday Luna, where has that year gone. In a whirlwind of fun, love and downright chaos most of the time, would not have it any other way. She has grown into a lovely girl.

Re: Limpy Holly

Hi Linny
Vet gave her a good exam and was pretty sure it was just muscle strain, if it persists too much longer or changes I will go back. In the meantime I will try your Dorwest tabs. With the elbow dysplasia, would she show signs of pain?
Have a good weekend

Re: New member

How true lancs lass, when Abbie passed away it took a good three years to get over the loss, for about 3 months after she died I used to hear her scrambling to get out of her bed, the first time was only a day or two after she died and I flew out of the kitchen to where her bed used to be convinced ...

Re: New member

Hi lunadoo Yes doods are lunatics on the whole, but a more intelligent loving fun dog I cannot imagine. Like you we adore Goldies and had Abbie for nearly 15 years, she looked young even at the end. She was such a sensible girl, not at all like Holly, she did not have the sense of humour that Holly ...

Limpy Holly

Hi bit of advice please. Holly has developed a offside front limp. When walking no limp, no sign of pain, no swelling ,no damage to toes or claws. It is only after resting she really limps two or three steps no sign of pain, then she is fine until she rests again? After a nights sleep she does not l...

Re: places to visit with a doodle or 2 or 3 or....

We are off to Westward Ho in April staying at a lovely dog friendly cottage, I am hoping there are plenty of places to eat at with Holly. It looks a really lovely area for walking. Never visited this area of Devon so lots of exploring to do.
