Re: Poppy's Dance

OMG, bid that was BRILLIANT!!!!!! Poppy is a genius! I'll never be able to do that with Lola - I can't dance myself, no sense of rhythm!

Re: Front clip harness

i don't think it is suitable as the straps are too thin, and would cut into them in an accident - car harnesses have a flat bit across the chest to distribute the weight and prevent injury.

Lola has a show after every muddy walk and her paws done after just a walk... we use microfibre towels, but she takes ages to dry. So i put a fleece coat on her - an Equafleece. Dries her, keeps her warm, stops the carpet getting wet...

Re: Front clip harness

Forgot to say - Lola is small but had pulled one of the bones out in my forearm with all her pulling and jumping up! The Mekuti did stop this. But it needs a very long two ended clip lead.

Re: Hot dog - Cold dog.

Lola definitely gets cold. Very, when wet, she shivers. She dies burrow under blankets if its cold in the winter... or tries to get on me! So i do leave the heat on for her, but have to admit she isn't left for much more than an hour anyway!
