Re: How much grooming????????

Auz matts daily, always has done from a puppy It's been a constant battle to make him accept the grooming every single day but we have made good progress Some days he can sit good as gold as if I'm not there, other days he rolls on his back and acts like a pratt :roll: :mrgreen: Those safari combs l...

Re: Little swine!

Swines indeed! :twisted: :lol: :| Austin hasn't tried to escape from our garden (yet) as we had a new 6 foot fence and gate installed just as we got him, but it's true about their sweet spots they find Austin's weaknesses with certain areas are small holes / gaps. He just has to make them bigger I h...

Re: Calling all bitches

Yes, Auz was a right pain today.. I was trying to get him away from the dog (whose owner was, I am sure, thinking Austin was trying to eat her!!) and Aus just did NOT want to come back to me. His mind was elsewhere I just don't know what to do. We were thinking of breeding him, but if this continues...

Calling all bitches

I've only ever had male dogs, so don't know what it's like when a girly goes into season Is it common practice to walk them where other dogs are for the time they are on heat, or do you avoid it? I know they have to be walked, so I guess so, you just keep an eye on them and know what to expect? Rece...

Re: A completely different dog atm

Yes, thank you :o I am so so glad I got the extending lead...

Re: Be carefull

Awwww, it's awful isn't it So sad :cry: Especially when all they had to do was not pick up that piece of junk! My in-laws dog sadly had to be put to sleep 2 years ago.
