Re: Introducing Alfie and Bracken

Welcome to you, Alfie and Bracken! I set up a Gallery on Flickr and shared links to photos of Cairo when I first joined. If you look down the Introductions, you'll see the thread, and you'll see it took a couple of attempts to get the pictures available for viewing. If I can do it, it can't be too d...

Re: First season bleeding duration

Thanks for sharing your experience. They are mistresses of timing, aren't they! Glad to hear that the phantom pregnancy didn't cause too many problems. I'll discuss the timing of her spay with our vet. They usually leave it to us to decide everything, but maybe there's a small window for spaying and...

First season bleeding duration

Here we are on day 22 of Cairo's first (and only) season. She'll be spayed three months after she stops bleeding......but she continues to bleed! She has been very good at keeping herself clean, but I was expecting to have moved past this stage by now. Is it normal to bleed through the whole season?...

Please, please don't eat the dandelions

I'm beginning to feel like I'm in a cheap remake of a Doris Day film :lol: Cairo is 6.5 months now and coming along really well. Yes, we still have the "I've got a stone in my mouth, chase me, te he he" moments, and the over-excited jumping and mouthing moments, but she is now fully house-trained, w...

Re: Heartbroken

No words can cover this. I feel for you and your loss, been there myself more than once and it never seems to get easier. Kobi was loved, knew he was loved, and will always be loved. Grieve, but then remember all the good times and keep them in your heart. That way, Kobi will always be with you. Sen...

Re: New member

Welcome, glad you've decided to stop peeking over the fence and come on in :P We always owned boxers - my husband said he'd had enough of them and I had to select something smaller.....so I did my research to see if I could find a breed with a similar joie de vivre. What else but a miniature labrado...

Re: Use it or lose it

Come now linny, you can't be 50+ again - once that marker is behind you you stay 50+ forever :lol:

Actually, I've just decided to apply that same logic and be 18+ from now on...who's with me (after all age is just a number) :D

Re: Use it or lose it

As a new-comer to the forum, and another 50+ female, I'd also hate to lose the site. I think part of the reduction in new posts is the wealth of information already found in previous threads. For example, while pulling my hair out about the lack of toilet training success with our 5.5 month old darl...

Re: going out to poop on his own

Hi Juney1 and Cooper! Not sure I can be of much help - Cairo is coming up for 15 weeks, but has always been super confident and doesn't mind whether we are there or not. Even saying that, though, I always accompany her outside (I have to keep an eye on what she is picking up...gravel, moss, weeds :o...

Re: New Puppy!

Think I had them all set to private - this link should take you to the album and hopefully that will work (8 week picture is now public so you should at least see that one...)

Re: New Puppy!

Thank you for the welcome. I promise I'll get photos up once I work out how :?

New Puppy!

Hello, We picked up Cairo almost three weeks ago. She is an F1b miniature labradoodle and will be 11 weeks old at the weekend. I read this forum during my research, so felt I should join now I've got Cairo home. She is lovely, smart, cheeky, fun and has very sharp teeth. Between her mouthing and me ...
