Re: Barking and more barking

Just a couple of things that came to my mind, Matt and I don't know if it may strike a chord with you Coco was a constantly alert and 'trigger happy' almost anxious puppy although shes very calm now in comparison (18 months old now but naturally started calming down at around 14 months) We never had...

Does any one cut/clip their hair coated doodles?

Hiya I've been looking at the lovely before and after pictures on the current threads about clipping and i really like the short clips as i like seeing their body shapes. Am i right in thinking its only the fleecy/woolly coats that really need cutting or clipping to stop them matting though :? Does ...

Re: Help please in a panic!!!!!

Freda- I now work as a school nurse which is a great job (and non-acute phew :) ) but I'm a registered nurse, used to be a registered midwife and I spent quite a few years working in teaching hospitals (including quite a bit of time on chest wards) Obviously I'm not a vet but I do remember some anat...

Re: Help please in a panic!!!!!

I have to say it all sounds VERY fishy to me Lungs are ALWAYS inflated due to negative pressure between the pleura (lung covering) and chest wall Collapsed (or non-inflated) lungs usually occur because of a piercing injury between the ribs allowing atmospheric air which is at a higher pressure into ...

Re: Help please in a panic!!!!!

I've seen a few human chest x rays in my time (used to be a hospital nurse) the ones that were noticeably 'cloudy' all over were usually infections (pneumonia) cancer showed more like an opaque mass over the tumour site and the rest of the lung area more clear unless it was very advanced I think if ...

Re: Creepy !!

I felt slightly threatened last summer when on a beach walk on my own with Coco at 9.30 in the morning It was a beautiful sunny morning and i'm sure i would have gone on but happened to look back and saw a man about 80 yards away who stopped when i did He had no dog with him which makes you suspicio...

Re: Head Collars??

I empathise completely Our dog trainer spotted me struggling and sold us a halti way back in puppy classes at 4 months old :roll: We've had one on and off ever since and she's 18 months old Coco will walk fairly well on the lead without pulling ONLY after a good run Other than that she pulls and pul...

Re: Differences in heights, Mini Doodles and Standards

I make Coco 22 inch to the shoulder and she weighs 23 kg Most of the other standards we've met are quite a lot bigger (haven't seen many minis in the flesh) I originally wanted a dog I could put my hand down onto their shoulders when it stood at the side of me but instead I touch her head! She's qui...

Re: Shedding?

i think the article does infer that labs are not double coated although its a bit of a moot point i think it ended up giving far more info on coat care than much useful info on allergies i suppose what i was trying to get at was that this article, and lots of other threads on here have implied that ...

Re: my very own website

I remember the old Hagrid and threads pretty well In fact I saw him up for rehoming within the last few weeks on an internet site (was it preloved or pets4homes or epupz? cant remember for sure) I know because I was searching for a 2nd dog at the time :? The wording on the ads was in the same tone a...

Re: Shedding?

I thought it was well documented that labradors are double coated and so amongst the worst 'shedders' but this article says they're not double coated :?: I wonder how many people with known severe 'dog' allergies really go looking to be dog owners? A family member I have whose asthma is set off by c...
