  1. thanks :) I tried a search but couldn't find anything! Been a while since I've been on here! So it isn't new then? Only just appeared on our shelves here with the big 'new' sign so we really are the state of Wait Awhile!! Hoping it will be a good food for Amber so will wait and see and report back with how she's gone :)
  2. Hi everyone, I was just down at Woolies and saw VIP pet foods have a new product 'natures goodness' grain free nutrition. I bought a bag to try my dog on as she was on Canidae grainfree previously although recently I have been giving her the 4legs meatballs (yes I know total opposite to grain free!). It looks and smells meaty and I checked the ingredients and it does have many of the same ingredients as the Canidae. The guaranteed analysis is a bit different. She was doing well on the grain free but due to various reasons took her off (not related to the food btw). This VIP one is a lot cheaper and Australian made. Does anyone have any feedback? Amber loved it but she's a Cocker Spaniel and eats most things.... even things she isn't supposed to Thanks!
  3. my sister in law's 2 huskies have gone missing from Byford - please keep an eye out for them. One male red and white, one female grey and white both 10 years old. there is a facebook page for them - https://www.facebook...sLostInByfordWa thanks :)
  4. I so want one of these! Seems to be a few different ones out there now - I remember when the roomba came out and I thought it was the best idea (I HATE vacuuming!!) but never got one. Now I think it would be a good investment :) Has anyone tried a different one or is the general consensus that the Roboking is the best one?
  5. Anyone affected by the fires? It is close to us, across the main road. So much smoke I think we will be ok but it is scary. I hope no one has been hurt There is a bushfire emergency warning called for an area in Karnup - it is so close. Stay safe if anyone is near that area.
  6. So very sorry for your loss It was a very similar scenario with my boy Diesel. Mostly fine the day beforehand (slightly off his food), massively downhill the next - not moving, pale gums, vomiting. The vet thought it was a splenic tumour and that if it was he may have been ok with removal. They operated, but it turned out to be minor in his spleen but all through his liver We had to make that awful awful decision to give him his wings. It was just all so sudden We miss him. Run free Sophie. Hugs to you. I know how hard it is and the suddeness of it all is heartbreaking. My thoughts are with you :D
  7. We currently have vinyl in the main areas and carpet in the bedrooms and theatre. Just picked out our new flooring - laminated flooring through the whole house - YAY no more carpet!!!!
  8. Beautiful photos!!!! So sweet I love the adoring look from your cav and your big boy looks so gentle with the babies Stunning little puppies!! I am sooooo puppy clucky right now - I think all this thinking about having our first litter with Amber is making me crazy We had the sweetest little 7 month old cav boy come in yesterday and he smothered me with kisses - heaven!! I LOVE Cavaliers probably as much as I love Cockers - if we had the space I would definitely have one too but our next dog will be one of Amber's pups (hopefully a boy) if we have a litter, but a cav is definitely on my list Love spaniels
  9. Hi all, Interested to know of your first breeding experiences :D Had you had any practical experience with whelping a litter with another breeder (same or different breed)? Did you do it alone or with the help of a mentor? Was your bitch a maiden too or had she had a litter previously with another breeder? Any things in hindsight you would have done differently or things that you would definitely do again? What was it like raising the pups? How did you find homes or choose which one/s would stay with you? thanks
  10. But they are in date for how many there are per packet - it will only be out of date because the OP ordered two packets to follow on from each other - it isn't up to the supplier to know if the purchaser is buying more than what they immediately need and want to stock up Personally I wouldn't use them but then I am a real stickler for use by dates on ANYTHING! Maybe you could sell the extra ones on here or donate to a shleter or something BEFORE they are close to expiry
  11. It's not so much the puppies but the parents - THEY don't get out after a few months :p
  12. I'm so sorry for your loss I wouldn't say he is asleep - that gives the impression that he WILL wake up one day - kids just don't understand the difference between 'sleep' and 'forever sleep' I have also heard that this can sometimes make kids fearful of 'sleep' if they think that they or someone close to them won't wake up. Just something to be mindful of (sorry if that just adds something horrible to think about with what you are already dealing with ) We say that our loved ones have gone to live in the stars and then we go and look out at the biggest brightest star. We have always been truthful in that we tell the kids that they have died and won't be with us anymore but we will always remember them. I find having the 'star' is helpful if they feel sad - we can go out and look at the stars and talk about whoever is missed. Thankfully, we have lost just two of our beloved animals and one dear grandparent since we've had kids but we have dealt with all passings in the same way. Big hugs to you - it is so hard to deal with your own grief as well as that of the children
  13. Awesome photos! she looks like she is having the best fun ever!
  14. I figured it was something like that! Were you not at the uni doing it though?
