Re: Names for a little boy

I love Noah, Nate and Quincy for a boy. But what about Rusty or Butters for his coloring?

I also love nature names; bracken, birch, forest, woody?

Re: Hair Loss

Roma lost fur round one eye last year, due to an infection and it grew back fine (did take a little while though). She's now losing it on her legs, but the vet didn't prescribe antibiotics this time, just a course of advantix; which hasn't helped. Can I ask, did Murphy smell? Roma smells horrible, n...

Re: Phoebe's got a bald patch!

Mandy, could I ask how much the skin scrape was? Roma has lost some fur under her armpits (or leg pits!) the vet didnt think it was fleas or mites but gave us a treatment of advantix to see if it cleared up; it didn't. He said he was reluctant to do a skin scrape until we'd tried the advantix, which...

Re: 15 week pup and crate behaviouor?

I'd try leaving the crate door open. We found the crate to be fantastic and began by just leaving her for 10 mins, from day one. We then just built this up each week. By about 18 weeks we started to leave the crate open. There was an 'incident' when she peeled the wallpaper off in the hall and ate t...

Re: Labradoodle temperament

I don't think you can judge whether a dog would be destructive by its breed (or cross breed :wink: ), I think that is down to the individual dog's personality/stress levels etc. Roma peeled the wallpaper off in our hall and ate the plaster down to the brick work when she was a pup. However, that was...

Re: Dog smell and bath !!!

If it's around her head that smells, could it be an ear infection? This would be very smelly.

I had hoped for no doggy odour from Roma, but unfortunately, she smells like a dog! I'm lucky that she never rolls in anything, but she does have her own 'natural' smell :roll:

Re: Is it normal for doodles to sneeze?

Roma sneezes fairly regularly; doesn't seem to be ill, just a bit of a nose tickle.

Re: Puppy programme on bbc2 this Tuesday and Wednesday

Yes, Byron's mum was horrible; 'I wouldn't describe him as a member if the family' 'love is a very strong word'. And in the park, when Byron wouldn't leave the other dog alone, storming over, picking him up and marching off with no so much of a 'sorry about that' to the other dog owner! Rude and sel...
