  1. Glad to hear all is going well for the girl. As you say, just watch & wait at this stage Hugs to you both
  2. Great news on the vet report T.
  3. Oh, so sorry to read this Minxy. As others have said, it such a tough decision to make, but the best one in the interests of our beloved hairies. There are a lot of DOL dogs waiting for him on the other side. The tree you have chosen is beautiful.
  4. Sarah's gone...

    So sorry WM. Run free Sarah with your friend Mac
  5. Anxious weeing

    Thanks for all the suggestions and input, I've passed them all on to my colleague.
  6. Anxious weeing

    A colleague is having problems with their 5yo Ridgeback who has been incontinent for a little while now. Vet checks & a slew of tests have ruled out anything physical, and they're realising that it seems to be anxiety related in that she wees when someone makes a loud noise, or she gets startled. Their home & living situation changed a few months ago which is probably a bit contributor. They're doing some research and are looking at rescue remedy and thundershirts. My knowledge is pretty lacking in this area, so I thought I'd ask the DOL brains trust if anyone has some good methods for keeping an overall generally anxious dog calm. They are working on this with their vet too, but I thought I'd ask for any experience. Thanks
  7. Which dog breed is best for me?

    I had a Tibbie x as a foster a number of years back - he was the dearest little boy. We'd go bushwalking and he had a lovely time keeping up with the two big dogs (one who was probably 10x his size) - he'd climb up rocks and bound over fallen trees without a problem. He was adopted by my lawn-mower man, and only passed a few weeks ago. He would have been well into his teens. Fabulous little dogs
  8. Hard decision, biting dog. *Updated*

    No advice, just adding my support. Fingers crossed the metacam helps
  9. My boy Jasper

    So very sad to read this twodoggies. Sending hugs your way
  10. Gentle Giant Breed Recommendation!?

    What about a Bull Mastiff? Absolute sooks (in the right home of course), great with families & kids
  11. Looking for a cat-friendly dog

    I often check out your website to see if there's anything suitable Thanks RuralPug, I often check out PetRescue but I've heard some horror stories about unethical rescues advertising through there, or even just false advertising on characteristics, of their fosters, hence my post in this thread for recommendations from rescue people I trust. I've been out of the rescue world for so long now that I'm not sure which rescues are good
  12. Farewell Darcy

    Hugs poocow, and run free Darcy
  13. Goodbye Bubby my darling

    Oh I've just seen this So sorry for you loss Bub, your family have been such a big part of DOL it feels like one of my own has gone. RIP Bub, have fun over the bridge with all the other cheeky DOL dogs that reside there
  14. It's now been over 12 months since Fleming has gone, and I feel it's time for a new companion. I was wondering if anyone here in the rescue world can recommend a dog for me. My only stipulation is it MUST be cat friendly. I had a trial adoption earlier this year which was not successful when the dog attacked the cat. Thankfully she had no serious or long-term injuries, but it took months to get her emotionally better. She is quite timid and she loves to run up the hallway chasing dust bunnies. I have seen quite a few dogs on rescue group websites that say they are cat friendly so long as the cat doesn't run or stands its ground ! Otherwise, pretty much anything else goes. Probably not a full-on working breed, and something that is OK being home during the day, but I'm not fussed on size, coat etc. Hopefully someone knows the ideal pooch
