  2. Drink Bowl

    He is a pomeranian poodle. So far he only plays with water when I'm home. He isn't destructive at all. I pretty sure he just sleeps.
  3. Whatever Jeune wants Jeune gets

    @Loving my Oldies why do you think Jeune has to be fed this way? is it just because she is old or she doesn't have any jaw strength
  4. Drink Bowl

    Ok... so I presume this is during the times he is home alone ? What else does he have to occupy him during the day ? exactly what activities and toys ?
  5. @Papillon Kisses I have indeed read up on littermate syndrome.....am I giving away my perfectionistic tendencies? @Tassie I'm just calling it her personality now! Good news is today I took Clouds and her older sister for an excursion to the river and a good time was had by all! Now I just need to work up to a solo outing for Clouds to the river, she tends to hyper focus on the other dog which is great for her anxiety but not something I want permanently either. I think working on play will certainly help her have something to focus on whilst also keeping me on her priority list.
  6. Drink Bowl

    hahaahaha . He needs pool maybe but im not leaving him home with it in the lounge room.

  8. This was shared in the AUSTRALIAN Caravanning/Camping Travelling With Dogs FB page so I though it may be a plan to post here Link to Allbullz

  10. Whatever Jeune wants Jeune gets

    Ha ha ha. Nutrigel doesn’t smell too badly (molasses based) but I’ll pass on the rest. She eats (eventually) at just about every meal and sometimes hoes in as though she hasn’t eaten for a month, but the amount is miniscule. I feel quite lightheaded really at the relief of being able to get so much more food into her. And the fact she keeps it down seems to mean that she wants it, she just wants help with it.
  11. Amber is 10 today!

    Oh WOW, @JulesP -- how awesome is that!!! What an absolute tribute, to you and to Amber. Thank goodness she came to you. Your journey with her is a great example of the importance of researching and persisting .. while at the same time listening to what your dog is telling you, and as you say, even at the rough times, Amber was ready to keep working to be with you. Happy, happy 10th birthday dear Amber.
  12. Amber is 10 today!

    Thanks guys. I think she is rather lovely Snook! I tried to get a really nice photo of her today but she was having none of it. I was siting on the floor looking at the photos I had taken and the cheeky beast was watching me so I quickly took a photo. All the other ones she looks very miserable as she didn't want a photo shoot Poppy of course kept posing beautifully!
  13. That list sounds perfectly normal to me .. .. and my crazy girl is 2 and 3/4 now.
  14. Nervous in new situations, 16 week old BC, advice?

    @forfarhill brilliant. You’ll need to continue the separate socialisation etc to avoid littermate syndrome with the other pup in particular, but it sounds like you might have read up on that.
  15. Whatever Jeune wants Jeune gets

    Looks delicious but I'm sure Jeune is thrilled with this food on tap, good luck moving forward with mealtimes
  16. Puppy Blues? Is that crazy?

    Thank you so much, dear persephone . We will never know whether the dogs drove me crazy or I would have become anyway............
  17. Whatever Jeune wants Jeune gets

    Yippeeeeeee. The little bottles have arrived and they are perfect. Already filled and Jeune has already had one. Took me a fraction of the time (and frustration) than it would have taken to fill just a couple of syringes. They are 30mls and filled with a mixture of Royal Canin Mature, home made bone broth and Nutrigel. IMG_1131 by Cynthia Waters, on Flickr

  19. Inquiry into animal cruelty laws in New South Wales

    just released on facebook. so sad one of the calves at the Binnaway seizure " 1 hr ·6/12/2019 Before being shot and put in a pit, this calf sat here for two days with no mum and no milk. Someone tried to take it milk and was refused. The rspca have gone too far, this is bullshit! "
  20. Puppy Blues? Is that crazy?

    I didn’t grow up with pets and at the ripe old age of 48, I became the proud “mum” of two tiny Maltese puppies. I’d taken time off work to settle them in and a friend from another state came to visit. When she arrived, I fell on her neck crying my eyes out. I had become overwhelmed by the RESPONSIBILITY for these little lives. My friend thought I was crazy, of course.
  21. Amber is 10 today!

    She's absolutely gorgeous! Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl. How lucky she is to have you.
  22. Amber is 10 today!

    That is fantastic! Your dedication is amazing and Happy Birthday to Amber!~
  23. Amber is 10 today!

    Happy happy, Birthday Amber and well done on your love and commitment to Amber’s happiness and wellbeing, @JulesP
  24. Today is Amber's 10th Birthday! This would be exciting for any dog but it is super exciting for me & Amber. When Amber was 11 months old she was diagnosed with multiple liver shunts. This was inoperable and she was given a prognosis of around 6 months to live. I did a lot of reading and put her a strict diet and medication regime. A Yahoo support group was very valuable in the early stages. Amber has always been happy and full of life. There have been a few times were I thought I might lose her but she has never said that she has had enough. It hasn't been easy but she has totally been worth it. She is my little stalker and is always around staring at me with her lovely eyes. I didn't dare to hope that we would get to 10 years. This is the low end of a normal life span for a Border Collie but to even make it into the normal life span is amazing. So Happy Birthday Amber!

    or, get him a paddle-pool :D let him play!!
  27. Drink Bowl

    Give him several watering points ( suitable sized buckets ,( water level /throat -chest high) securely fastened) these are dogs ... they don't care if they drink from a bucket ... or a puddle ;)
