Re: 1st bonfire night

I am going to totally disagree with what's been said about keeping your dog in, initially, when fireworks are being set off!! My last dog was traumatised by fireworks. So when we had Polo, I took him out for a lead walk as soon as they started (he was about 7 months old) and treated him as usual, no...

Re: Working full time with a Labradoodle?

Bid, my comment was not directed at you personally, but at the attitude of some rescues.
I think it would be better for them to have an open mind, and match on individual circumstances.

Re: Working full time with a Labradoodle?

That's a bit harsh, Bid. What happens if a dog is rehomed to a not-working-full time-home and further down the line, owners circumstances change? Are they then obliged to give the dog up to be rehomed yet again? Personally, I would not have got a dog unless I could give him/her the attention that th...

Re: Doodlefest

Hi
I spoke to you because I recognised Minnie, when you where in the tent talking to the Great Dane. Minnie is lovely!!

I must admit we only went for the day but it was way too hot for Polo, so we went home early too!

But a lovely day all told.

Re: eCollar - Endorsed by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalyps

I have been following this with interest and incredulity!
Makes me wonder though, Beerock. Have you been banned from similar forums in Canada?

Re: When is a Flower Bed not a Flower Bed...???

Hahaha-these posts have made me chuckle, glad I'm not the only one! This particular border in part of the back garden is a particular favourite of Baxter's! It used to be covered in lovely shrubs and flowers....not anymore!! And I get a very muddy pooch when it rains as he loves racing up and down ...

Re: bored bored bored

Go to the library, or on line, and read some amazing escapist books!! I think sometimes people have forgotten how much enjoyment they bring! ( I know what you mean about the world cup!!! -deliberately not capitilised though, much prefer Rugby :lol: )

Re: Time for another East Midlands meet?

I must admit that we have been so fortunate with the weather in the past and it looks like this weekend will be wet and windy! However Polo will still need a good walk (somewhere!) regardless of what comes from the sky, so I am still planning on going, unless one of you tells me it's cancelled. Sure...

Re: Calling all bitches

Seems too be quite an emotive subject! It also isn't fair for boys to be driven wild because a girl has been out walking sometime during the day leaving her trail of promise all over the place. It's only for a short while every 6 months or so, and it's not much to ask that they are kept at home. In ...

Re: Calling all bitches

No! No! No! (my boy is neutered) I get really pi**ed off with people who walk their in season bitches in regular dog walking areas and then wonder why their poor girlies get a huge amount of attention from every dog, whether it be entire or not, in the area! And I am not having a pop: started thinki...
