  1. Young toddler mauled in Victoria

    the whole situation is just terrible heartbreaking to also see those two police officers and the one speaking , you could see and hear the heartbreak they also saw at the scene so so so very tragic the whole thing that happened , hope the rest of family get some professional emotional help as well
  2. Settling in a new dog

    strating to think she is a very soft temperament , I know my little gitl is timid but mums is worse yes we thought of her of something prior that may have frightened her , as mums g/f's dog was placid until one day a man she knew wore a particular hat and had a garden rake in his hand and then she bowled him up , everyone was so surprised , her breeder has been unwell and havent had a chance to actually talk more with her as yet , we knew prior she was a gentle girl and cuddly , I had thought of the only dog , Hopefully she still needs time to settle she wasnt used to collar to start with ,and yes did run off , until mum did get one on her , NOt sure if her vet is into behaviour as yet but a vet visit will be coming up , we had a vet here first few days and good bill of health and said time to settle , but this seems so much longer than others we had Would this behaviour be from the 2 ops , leaving puppies, and the flight and new home ? mum seems to think this may be a problem prior to all the upheaval , interesting you mention scent of Molly , as Emmi goes down that spot for her poos , yes mum has taken her out to the local garden for a walk and she seemed fine with that , small training in the yard with sit and stay etc and seems fine with that , mum using one that I use and helps a Buch flower esssence and that has relaxed mine with thunder storms etc Yes have said to mum to ask the vet and tell her exactly what going on , the back wards is upsetting for mum to see her so petrified with things , and of course doesnt like seeing Emmi like that , Yes it bit upsetting for brother to feel she frightened of him , she will go near him outside when he working on car has a sniff then walks away ,( she pinched his apple one day ) put your hand out and she is off , so they let her come to them no air scrathcing or whimpers , but good point to mention to vet , she has as times heard neighbours dog bark and has a little bark back , she does have some dear ways , but this looking as though petrified is not nice yes I emaill breeder with pics and updates and mentioned last one she was still very timid , but havent spoken to her yet as she not well and I also had gallbladder op out When she was down here with my Ruby ( 8 yrs old ) Emmi ( 5 yrs old ), both were lazy bums lol , but it was bit warm . they ate close by and did check each others bowel when finished , they didnt have aproblem siiting same chair etc , didnt exactly run around together but at times walked around after the other , I wouldnt say it was a lose bond but wasnt bad either , mumm nearly got two that were offered but because mum 84 and house has no aircon etc and mum due to have eye op ,she stayed with one we have known the breeder for many years and 4 dogs so she knows how much loved and looked after mum ( and I ) have loved her dogs and well looked after Molly was almost 15 yrs when passed away after waiting long time to get this girl it is just bit dissapointing for mum she came from kennells with lots of land to run free then had about roughly 2 months inside house after her ops and puppies , she doesnt have seperation anxiety when mum goes shopping , which other one did , Emmi is left in crate with door open to come and have treats or drink if wants to appreicate the replies as havent come across this bad and this long settleing in as for the groomer not sure what mum going to do yet , normally I would clip the feet as mum has arthritic hands , but I cant bend much after the GB op

    no mum isnt fussing over her ,she showed her where things were in the beginning ,then let her go about what shewanted to check out ,garden etc yes mums other cav was so outgoing as one of mine , but this girl i hope isnt going to stay like this
  4. Settling in a new dog

    ok , she has been with mum about 9 weeks now and things not really improving she loves sleeping in bed or crate when whent home to mum , she was investigateing the garden , she has got better with eating slowly , she still had moments of timid ( understandable ) , would bark at dog next door and chase bird etc mum came down here week before christmas as had my gallbladder out , I had a crate here and beds for , she seemed to eat well and didnt have a problem with my dog when whent back home she was petrified of getting into her crate that she loved being in before , mum put her in crate and sat on chair next to her and read , she is now back to going into her crate fine , brother came up today as he does most days as whent to give her some liver treats and she totally took of shaking up stairs to bed in mums room , mum whent to give her some treat and she sat there shivering , she is petrified of practualarly everything today , asked mum if she having more good days than bad and seems bad days are becoming the norm , this is upsetting mum alot , she needs to have a groom next week and mum is concerned this might put her back even more as she so scared of most things , she does come up to mum and let her know it is tea time and does if outside in afternoon come up put front legs on her to have a hold which mum does , mum hasnt pushed things , just letting her come to mum or brother on her own , but mum doesnt know what else to do , surely by now she should have got used to brother coming and going ( he is feeling slightly upset as she runs away from him offering her a treat ) mum can be making tea and she goes into lounge room and waits for mum , yet this petrified character is upsetting mum mum is at her wits end and thinking she may have to go

    oops forgot that , sorry , still looks a bit confused about the camera
  8. Settling in a new dog

    Yes we know can take time for them to settle in , but hasnt been much in the last few days , but I tend to agree with some answers here , she has been through a lot with her ops and leaving her pups and long flight and then new people and hasnt realised this will be her long term home and the heat knocked her a bit , mum did take her up to her bedroom last night , she did shake alot when came out crate , ( mum was concerned if she roamed up the stairs she may have fallen ) but when got into the bed in the bedroom she slept all night long and even snores mum let her stay in the crate most of the day as she did things around the house , she put her food outside the crate so she came out herself , then took her on lead around outside and she did her nature calls and was quiet happy haveing a sniff around parts of the back yard then both had a lay down in the bedroom and mum got up and left her there , then few minutes later someone poked her head around the corner at top of stairs, so have a happy mum at moment and some moments that are starting to look promising after haing 9 new dogs with in the family over many years this little one has taken a lot longer to show some sort of interest thanks for the replies as knew most of what to do but any new ideas are welcome , I will also get some rescue remedy or adpatil to have on hand for her at the moment apparently she has ventured into lounge room and is now watching tv sitting on a bed in there , so hopefully she is having a little turning point with many more to come The last few months have been a huge roller coaster for her and she needs to heal emotionally and psychologically from all the upheaval and that I think has been the major factor in this along with her physical recovery So welcome to the family Emmi and may you love your new home and mum and feel content
  9. Settling in a new dog

    yeah we have walked up to her in bed or room normally , and spoken to her in normal voice and tried to coax her in a friendly manner , and say things like come out time for tea . wee etc , not really softly but not loud , that swhat we thinking if we just let her go and she willl come when she wants to ?
  10. Settling in a new dog

    she doesnt shake / shiver as if frightened when slowly go to her , , ok didnt think of her thinking only temporary what about Rescue remedy also as well as adaptil ? what else could we try so can give mum few more ideas tomorrow we realise more time is needed , but only going or coming out once a day is a bit upsetting for mum my timid girl did manage to move around bit more after day or so , but onbviously month or so before more confident
  11. Settling in a new dog

    mum got her new dog ( 5year old ) on Monday , they stayed here for a few days to help mum with settle her in , of course we know there can be a few week to settle in , ( we have had 4 dogs from the same breeder ) as yes each can be different , but this little girl is so different , she met my little girl and didnt really seem interested in her we had a bed set up for her in mums room here and she spent most of the time in the bedroom in that bed , we at times had to pick her up and take her out, and she would try and shoot back to that room , she eats well , and does toilet most times , but she can sure hang on also , mum took her home today and she has hardly left her crate all day , she walked up mums driveway very well and inside , sniffed around kitchen and then whent into the crate made comfy for her with her familiar toy sent by breeder If you go to bring her out the crate she battens down and wont move , not wanting to frighten her we let her go , waiting for her to make her own move she doesnt appear to be interested in anything else in house , so far has only investigated the kitchen , take outside and wants to come back inside , even on a lead outside she makes no attempt to do a wee or more , we had a vet out yesterday thinking maybe after the 10 hour flight she may have sore leg / back etc , but she was given a very good clean bill of health , was slightly tender near her desexing area ( desexed 9th this month ) she has been through 2 ops in last few months , cessarian , and desexing , yesterday she did pick up the toy that came with her and carried it back to the bed , which we think might be a missing her pups maybe? the trip and heat may have affected her so hence sleeping more and felt more secure in the bed and crate , if we go towards her gently and softly she tends to back away or moves away the crate door is left open so she can come and go , but she just doesnt want to come out of it , we have tried enticing with chicken / treats etc , she wants them but just wont come out any thoughts and or other suggestions to help her ease in more , our others have settled in a bit easier than this one we know this is a process to settle in , but only once or twice willingingly came out 4 nights later no real improvement , mum has about 5 steps in the house which she will try with a lead tomorrow to entice her up to the bedroom , obviously where she would like her to sleep , so tonight left her in the crate in kitchen as she seemed secure / comfortable with
