It's morally wrong

We brought our lottie from a breeder recommended to us ( usually a breeder of labs). They seemed a lovely family and they only breed healthy dogs etc. I don't know why I do it but when I bored I browse puppies for sale ( not that I'm going to buy one for another year +, but get a good sense of thing...

Re: Beautiful collars

I use heavy duty clips and they are brought from a English manufacture (others I have spoken to get cheap ones shipped from hong kong). I always tell owners that they need to make sure that their dogs are safe when using collars. mine have been tested on various breeds but if anyone would like to tr...

Re: a dog is not for christmas!

I took my kids to see Santa and when asked my 3 yr old told Santa that she wanted a puppy :shock: but his reply was very good as told her he couldn't take animals on his sleigh because they might frighten his reindeer. As you probably already guessed she isn't getting a puppy (we already got a 7 mon...

Re: Chewed her paw so much has a sore

Thanks guys I did her a oat bath (it worked on chicken pox for kids) it all stopped now I'm thinking it was the stingers as was going mad at her back feet tail and tummy. Just strange her front paws were ok, maybe they hairier/ tougher. Told my hubby to be more mindful next time :evil:

Re: Pets 4 Homes experience

I totally understand the logic and I would hate the responsibility of finding homes for puppies, I suppose the lengthy process puts off scrupulous people so a good way. I don't mind giving information out. And I totally agree with you bid about rescues it gets my back up when you read advertisements...

Re: Hi and where do you keep your doodle's crate?

Ours is in the pantry part of the kitchen, we choose this space as quiet space away from our small children (we all know they can be a bit much) that way lottie has a quiet place to go to if needed but it's also part of the main house. I'd prob say to put it somewhere they will be able yo gain acces...

Re: Scavenger

I also do the same when we do crafts I found with looking after my nans dog they are quite Pa...
