  1. Like Showdog said, you're best off getting to know a breeder with a similar goal to you & the type of dog you like, then go from there with them as your mentor. If you build a relationship with someone, demonstrate a willingness to learn & trustworthiness you shouldn't have an issue eventually getting a foundation bitch. Usually breeders are more willing to offer boys on Mains for showing & if you put in the hard yards & prove you're in for the long haul you'll be taken seriously :)
  2. Awww he is too precious LOVE Brittanys. Have always admired them.
  3. I want to get to at least one show a month. Particularly the Western Classic & Perth Royal!! (One show a month doesn't seem like a lot but we live 4 hours from Perth so it's a lot for us) Would love to title Tundra by the end of 2017. We'll see. OH!! And I want to get him Endurance Titled. Maybe my bitch, Cilla, too. Once she's lost her baby weight
  4. I find males tend to be more biddable in my breed, girls can be a bit more challenging. Although if you're lucky sometimes they'll be smarter & "challenging" in the right way - my bitch breaks up any fights & doesn't let the other dogs chase the chooks. Makes my life a bit easier A lot of puppy buyers just want females, thinking they're more affectionate - mine are affectionate but nowhere near as much as the boys from what I've found.
  5. Just found this on Facebook. ‎Sylvia Joyner‎ to WA DOG SHOW EXHIBITORS UNITED 1 hr · Re all posts for Westie breeders' alert - Albany accident, puppy etc. His daughter has told me this morning: they still can't find out anything about a puppy purchase, however his wife is firm that there was no puppy planned or otherwise. Sadly they feel this is a side effect of head trauma. So I think we can all relax!
  6. Has the breeder/puppy been found yet?? And surely by now, the breeder would have been contacted by the airline it was booked through if the new owners hadn't been to pick the puppy up??
  7. I got Miniature American Shepherd on the Iams one
  8. Naaawww my husband is trying to get Shiba Inu Keeps getting Corgis
  9. I clearly don't know how on earth to look after my breed I even put the highest possible energy, we live rural anyway, small house (but does that make any difference if you have a big yard!? *ahem* farm!?), lots of exercise, very active dog, >$35 feeding, 2-3 sessions/wk grooming (because that's how often I groom my SHOW Aussie!) Seriously there's nothing I can make more suitable for Aussies on the quiz
  10. I even tried different answers (more hair? less hair? bigger? smaller? I spend more time? less time? with them? they're never alone? always alone?) I got Kelpies & Border Collies on my list but never in the top row.
  11. I've never got Australian Shepherd in any of them But they fit me perfectly!!!
  12. Yep. It's a cross bred dog. Probably bred without any health testing of sire and dam and sold for more than a pure bred. Yeah obviously   but I just wasn't sure what breeds made up the new word.
  13. Probably French Bulldog x Pug? That's all I could think of...
  14. I read about a "Frug" today?? Any clues what that would be??
  15. I use a plastic Olive drum for my chook food. The only time it falls over is when the damn horse kicked it over and it was nearly empty. But the lid doesn't come off. And water doesn't get into it.
