Re: lanarkshire or glasgow meet?

Ooh we are just outside stirling and would love to come so I'll keep a look out for further details. Isla also jumps when she meets someone so it will be chaos with all these mad doods running about. Ballach on the 1st would be great for us, we have never been on a doodle meet before so it will be g...

Hi there

Where on the west coast were you thinking of any when?

We have F1 15 month old and would try to come if it wasnt too far up, we are up and down to Oban on a regular basis.

Re: Happy pee

Hi there, Isla is 9 months and can still do this although much much less than before. Our next door neighbours had folk in, we were going for a walk and they were very kind in coming out to say hello, i'm praying to myself but no she peed all over the ladys shoes, I was mortified. She was also prone...

Re: Frog Nightmare (we think...)

Hi there Isla has actually eaten a frog/toad she managed to grab ironically on our way to puppy training!! It took her a while to chew it and she crunched her way as I tried to get it off her without any luck whilst shouting and dancing about like a looney trying to get her to drop it. I realised th...

Re: doing toilet on rug!!

Hi there this is what Isla did to us. We did use training pads so its not that. She would make a beeline for the hall rug and we were advised that this was because it was soft underfoot just like grass. We kept them hidden for months! She is good now and is trusted (if clean) to get into the sitting...

Re: THINK ALFIE MAY NEED COUNSELLING!!!!

Hi there, when Isla was younger she wouldnt drink either, we took her to the vet who assured us that no dog will ever allow themselves to become dehydrated. But it was still a major concern for us. We found that putting ice cubes in her bowl helped. We put the ice cubes on the floor first to lead he...

Re: Bit bothered

Hi there Our Isla has been having similar problems recently. She is nearly 8 months old is 20kg and has been speyed. When we were out she would sit down suddenly, or turn round and look as though she had been stung in her rear end but there was nothing to see. She was also reluctant to go for a pee ...

Re: Today I want to cry :((

Dee, I have just read this and my heart goes out to you all, this is awful. I agree surely there must be some semi sedative that could be given to help, it seems almost cruel to let him wait with no help to make the time go quicker for all of you. Its amazing how the other dogs just know isnt it, th...

Re: Eating dandelions

Isla does this too, I thought it was just her! Great to know others have the same problem. She looks like the cow from the magic roundabout chewing them! (I'm showing my age). Does anyone have any tips on how to stop them from chewing anything in sight when they are out, she has also been known to h...

I havent been clever enough to work out how to put a photo on but will try to show you. Isla is nearly 6 months and casts an awful awful lot, does Willow? One of t...
