    so sorry LMO. Bunter was a very handsome dude.
  3. Mooch City is in Mourning

    This long term DOLer has had a few names, @Boronia. . I was actually going through one of my banned periods when Bunter became a member of this crazy household and I had to ask Troy to let me back in so I could tell everyone about him. Rescue page was more active then and I loved telling the stories of rescues and fosters. Unfortunately all those stories are gone now with the regular cleans outs that Troy does. Edited to add that Danny was with me for so many years (Feb 1999 - Aug 2016) that pretty well all my dogs were part of the Danny era. Hard to believe that he has been gone for 3 and a half years. Time is scary.

  5. Best Cordless Clippers ??

    I must check them out next time I am in town, thanks

    I'm so sorry DDD (I'm calling you that as Bunter came from the 'Danny' era) another of the little 'stars' of Dogz is no longer with us. He will be forever in your heart xxx from me
  7. Best Cordless Clippers ??

    The $37 Kmart cordless clippers did a good all over clip on Rheneas. It was maybe a bit close, but in 10 days or so his coat is re-growing and looks okay. Timing was good to save him from coping with the heat-wave in full coat.

    Loving the vids and photos he looks to be enjoying life ,and has just settled in ...

    @Rebanne I haven't found anything he won't eat yet haha, I'll have to be mindful of him enjoying all the new foods too much. The real estate finally fixed our screen doors so once it's cooled down a little Jay can watch the buses and other scary things go by from the front room to get used to the noise, but he recovered far better than I expected! @persephone whoops, totally slipped my mind! Our first park trip Just chilling with the only snuffle mat I will ever make. Chilling with all the contents of the toybox I'd changed over 5 minutes before Perfecting the sad hound eyes for my banana and pb on toast (spoiler: he got a small portion once he settled and ignored my food) Playing fetch with Mr TC this afternoon while I'm at the office for another 4 hours still. For some reason I can't embed the videos https://imgur.com/a/EOt5eEr https://i.imgur.com/gFqNnIv.gifv
  11. I use ValuHeart which is Ivermectin based. Not to be used on non DNA tested working dogs. I usually use Advantage for the spot on and the all wormer is usually Milbemax but I'm not too worried about brand as long as it is an all wormer.
  12. Thanks. What products do you use in particular?
  13. Mooch City is in Mourning

    His coat was really soft, @persephone. And, yes, I do have so many photos.
  14. Similar to Rebanne- as few chemicals in bodies as possible, and would never use a combination like that - esp. for breeding animals.
  15. I use as little as possible and never a combo. I give a monthly heart worm tablet that only does heartworm and I give it every 6 weeks. I use an intestinal wormer roughly 3 times a year. Spot on flea treatment a couple of times over summer for just in case. No ticks where I live.
  16. Temperament testing on wolf pups

    Interesting observation. Might be worth sharing it with the study's author. mailto:[email protected]
  17. I am currently using cannex and revolution but i am keen to give "The big 5" a go.. but I noticed they state, "The safety of Credelio has been not been evaluated in breeding males and females." -- is this something to be concerned about? is it safe to use? What do YOU use for your bitches/dogs?
  18. Mooch City is in Mourning

    So sad to hear one of your “darling oldies” has passed. Your photos of the little guy are so sweet. What a cutie. No wonder you took him in so many years ago. Such a shock when they leave suddenly. My thoughts are with you. Take care.
  19. Pup with different sized ears

    It sounds a tad odd Do you have a photo which shows this ? What did the vet say at Vaccination time ?
  20. Greyhounds

    Great update, @Taliecat, I did giggle at the shoe-throwing ..and how nice to have made a friend! but you forgot photos! Must've just slipped your mind...easy enough :P
  21. Mooch City is in Mourning

    I always loved reading about Bunter, as I am old enough to remember Billy Bunter ..and it gave me a smile Seeing the pic of your Bunter with a mouthful ..well, that made me smile again Such a lovely photo.You must have a Sh!t-load of memories in photos !! Bunter was so handsome with his gorgeous coat!
  22. Teen bitten while hugging dog

    The dog thought so as well
  23. Mooch City is in Mourning

    Thank you, DOLers. It IS hard particularly as they are all so old now and all having health issues. I had accepted that Bunter would probably not see the year out, but it was so damned sudden ..... although I have come to realise that that is what can happen with elderly dogs, cats, humans. Suddenly, the wheels just fall off. Big big Bunter-sized gap in the lounge room, today
  24. Mooch City is in Mourning

    Very sorry to read this. You have dedicated yourself to your fur babies and Bunter could not have had a more loving home. I know this one is going to hurt so take care of yourself.
  25. Greyhounds

    all sound good TC! FWIW mine would not take kindly to a car backfiring or an extra loud large vehicle. My 3 have all gone on the green beans diet I was having trouble feeling their ribs - oops!
  26. Mooch City is in Mourning

    I'm so sorry to hear about Bunter passing. He was a gorgeous, darling little man who had a wonderful life with you.

    Life with Jay has settled into a rhythm. While I'm finishing at 10pm, Mr TC walks Jay in the morning since I should be sleeping until about 730. Unless a certain hound decides he'll bark at me until I'm awake for no reason other than he's bored. Jay has learnt that Mr TC putting on his shoes in the morning means he's going for his walk and Jay tries to help by throwing any shoe he can get his mouth on at Mr TC and bouncing around like a mad dog Looking on the brightside I suppose it'll be easish enough to capture and shape "bring me my shoes" from his helping. We had a bit of a setback last weekend with a car backfiring and ruining Jay's confidence for a couple of days on walks, but his love for exploring and an older gentleman who he sees on his walks has helped to resolve that for us. Mr TC reported there was a scary loud truck and bus go past and Jay freaked out a bit but then Jays gentleman came into view and all was forgotten. Our cheeky boy has pretty mastered sit and wait for dinner at Mr TC insistence on the sit part (despite my urging that drop and wait would be easier), and this is transitioning to nice door manners too. RCs feeding guide did turn out to be a ridiculous amount after all, he gets about a cup of kibble in the morning, a frozen kong of raw mix and yoghurt when I leave for work and another cup of kibble with 150g of meat, a couple of spoonfuls of plain greek yogurt and either an egg or half a tin of sardines for dinner. So far we've trialled natures goodness (not his fave, was left over in the kibble bin from Dozer), BH lamb and rice, Pet Food Australian's hemp oil mixed protein kibble and has a bag of the MFM Bacon and Egg kibble for weekends. I think we'll probably end up with a mix of the Pet Food Australian one and something else but time will tell. I'm lucky enough to live very close to Canine Country's location and every petshop I've walked into has their frozen raw tubes. Super convenient for us and really great pricing for an extra. Greys are a very different speed of dog, that's for sure and it's been lovely to not have food allergies to worry about.
