Re: Had a good cry at Marley and me

I watched Marley at the cinema and I don't think there was a dry eye in the place! i thought it a lovely film and I laughed as well as cried. I think the ending was in a way beautiful as well as sad (something all us dog lovers have to face). It was my birthday treat after a meal at local Chinese! H...

Re: How to make dry food more appealing

I sprinkle Dixie's food with powdered liver from Pets at Home. She has her fussy days and this works every time. It's sold as a supplement.

My daft dogs!

We have just had a conservatory added to our house, it's great to have extra space and watch the birds in the garden. The only problem being at night with so much glass the dogs can see their reflection when lights are on. Dylan was first and the the others joined in all barking! I'm sure they will ...

Re: When to start letting Willow off the lead?

Good advice, It's scarey but I think you'll find your puppy will stay close to you anyway. One other tip is to go when your dog has empty stomach! The treats Will then be more tempting. We used small pieces of cheese or frankfurters the smell is very strong! We froze the frankfurter in small pieces ...

Re: Does more water intake cause soft bowel movements?

Still a bit of a mystery but my conclusion is extra fluids and heat do affect their poos. My pug does not get on with the heat at all, it's quite painful listening to her panting and her poos are the worst. I've cut down their food much to Dylan's disgust to see if it helps. Early and late walks thr...

Does more water intake cause soft bowel movements?

Since the weather has been hot my 3 have been drinking more which of course is normal, but 2 of them have now very soft poos. They're fine in themselves eating and acting normally. I'm wondering if the extra fluid affects their bowel movements. If not then I'll visit the vet. Anyone else noticed this?

Re: Keep cool collar

The trouble with little Beau is she won't drink when she's panting for breath. I've wrapped her in wet towel on a couple of occasions. Typically the weather has cooled off! so not used collar yet.
We take extra water now and walk in shade wer possible.

Re: Le Tour de Yorkshire/France

Really pleased you went. My memories are still fresh and will stay with me. The support of the British is fantastic. We are planning a trip to France next year so will try to watch again.

Keep cool collar

Our pug suffers in the heat and at times we've not taken her out. I've looked on Internet at the coats and they seem pricey, not too bad if they work but at £60 approx it's risky. I have however sent for a collar that was only £15 which contains the gel packs you freeze, I'm hoping this helps and wi...

Le Tour de Yorkshire/France

Is anyone else enjoying this? I'm not a particular sport lover but have always enjoyed this. The scenery and information of places they go through is brilliant. Hope it helps the tourist industry because there are some beautiful areas to visit. One year in France(Narbonne) we were among the crowds t...

Re: What do you feed?

I forgot to mention that mine love frozen peas! Great as a treat. I throw them on the grass, which stops them hanging round me while cooking. ! It takes them a good 10mins to find them all.

Re: Bad day

He was drilling the concrete and disturbed their nest, which I guess was the reason they stung him. He didn't know there was a nest there. He's never been stung before so it was me that was concerned that he might react.
Quite an eventful day in my life!!!!!
