Re: What time in the morning?

Ah that's fab- he sound like one lucky doodle! Stout used to be an early riser (about 5ish), he does start wriggling at first light. He sleeps in our room and we have a large shrub outside the bedroom window which is full of sparrows, they sit in it tweeting through megaphones, which wakes us all up...

Re: Garden toilet area.

Stout would not go to the loo in our old garden - but it was tiny- a bit of a pain as he quite often had an upset tum, so I used to take him for a walk in my pj's at 4 in the morning. Now we have moved he will go in the garden. He goes on the grass, but on walks he much prefers a nice gravel drive :...

Re: Addison's disease

Poor Rudy - stout sends licks, and big hugs to you.

Addisons was one of the things they tested stout for when he was poorly. We did lots of reading about it too, we also know a spaniel who has it. Fingers crossed he is feeling better soon and it will be kept under control with meds

Keep us updated

New chair

Chris recently got a nice new chair for lounging in. He has kept stout off it (instead he prefers I loose a large chunk of the sofa :o ). Yesterday I was panic studying for an exam (I passed :D ), I must admit, stout got away with keeping the chair warm while chris was out :wink: . After I went to b...

Re: Bitches wee damaging grass

We use dog rocks, they do seem to help.

Our problem currently is stout digging holes when you are not looking!

Re: *That* look.....!

We once had two ladies who came to say hello to stout in his favourite pet shop. Of course they asked what breed, after saying labradoodle we got chatting, and explained he was an f2 as his mum and dad are both doodles. One of them then told us he wasn't a labradoodle then as that is a cross between...

I agree, human hair cuts are a lot more, and I am sure stout is a far more difficult customer!

Re: Grooming: How much???

Stout first went to the groomer when he was 9 months. We have been through a couple- one left long bits! Stout is a bit of a drama queen when we try to brush his legs, so we take the lazy way out! His new groomer is a nutty brazilian lady who is fab, she doesn't let him get away with playing up, sto...

Re: Tick stuff and epilepsy

Cool, that sounds like an ideal thing to spend your winnings on!

We have just done his spot on, we thought we would do it before the out of hours vet got more expensive, just in case :|

Re: Tick stuff and epilepsy

Bid - I heard an interview on the radio with Chris Packham about the new horrid disease. Touch wood we don't seem to get many ticks around here, so it is only if we are going somewhere different with Stout we do his spot on. It is a tricky one, but I wouldn't want to expose him to any unnecessary ri...

Tick stuff and epilepsy

Stout is going on holiday next week in his caravan :D . We don't do his spot on in winter so haven't done it since his 'funny turn'. I seem to remember that there are certain things you should avoid if they have epilepsy. Although stout (touch lots and lots of wood) has been fine since, I am wonderi...

Re: Puzzle

At my yoga class there are a couple of people who are acupuncturists. Apparently every organ in the human body has its own time of day, so if you always wake at the same time it is due to a particular organ. When nan died, me and my mum kept waking at 4am which is lung time - they are linked to grie...

Re: Puzzle

I hope Echo is feeling a bit better

I can't really help other than I sympathize, if Stout is sick - usually after eating sticks - or if he is having an ibd flare up, it is usually at 3am :roll:

Re: Crufts

That poor GSD :cry: how they can possibly say that was a healthy or happy dog. The poor thing also looked terrified :cry: It was also interesting that during the commentary there were lots of references to when the breed was developed or that the breed was a cross, so surely they were also designer ...

Re: Pepperoni passion...

Chris was at the brewery a while ago - he had brought two chocolate eclairs - which he left at the back of the desk on a filing tray when he had to go downstairs. When he came back up, there was no sign - he thought he must have eaten them - then noticed the stripe of chocolate 'stuff' on the floor....
