  1. Well, I'm off to free Bonnie into the nearby National Park. I'm sure a timid 3.5kg Chihuahua will have a much better life fending for herself out "in the wild".
  2. Goodness time flies, I would never have thought Toby was 14!! What a huge loss for Katrina, he seemed like a special boy.
  3. Hi raz! Indeedy, it does oxidise quickly from what I've heard.
  4. Thanks for all your replies...I've yet to give them a go, will pop a small quantity in her next batch of food I make up. Luckily she is one of those greedy chis who eat anything - including a raw piece of eggplant I dropped while making dinner last night ;)
  5. I'm currently using Advance (small breed turkey and rice). It's "okay" but have just ordered some Artemis to try out (small breed one). I think this brand has won awards - it's meant to be very good. I've also tried Eagle Pack Salmon - that was pretty good too. I was under the impression that Royal Canin had heaps of "fillers" in it and wasn't actually that brilliant
  6. I've thought of adding a bit of ground flaxseed to some of Bonnie's meals (for omega 3 etc). Is it safe for dogs?
  7. Unfortunately their treats also have sugar in them :D Too bad, they otherwise seem to be a good brand...
  8. I was tossing up between a chi and a pap - chis easier to come by and much less hair!
  9. Thanks Sounds like too much sun is bad for us and our dogs! Makes sense really, especially as the sun seems "stronger" these days (unless that is just my imagination?)
  10. I feed bonnie a raw chicken neck most evenings (I've heard that a bit of chicken fat is good for their coats). She also gets mince/veg some days and a high quality dry food. Maybe some fish/flaxseed oil would help your kelpie's coat? Not sure if black dogs are just naturally shiny, but my chi Bonnie has a glorious coat: Pardon her weight - she is about 1/2 kg slimmer now
  11. I'm guessing Howie was found soon afterwards at your place having a bath?!
  12. What sort of dog is that? Looks rather like a polar bear to me
  13. I will google it as I don't think I have seen them I've just had a look and they don't seem easy to find. I stumbled across mine at a pet shop. I did find one similar, but it has a rake thing. Mine is the smaller one to the right of the photo, without a rake: http://www.petsolutions.com/default.aspx?I...15&SID=NXTG
  14. How about getting yourself one of those long handled poop scoopers? I have a plastic one with the very charming brand name of "The Stool Tool". It works a treat and has lasted longer so far those those metal ones that quickly fail. No more bending over (I have a bad back too).
  15. I've found that too much raw meat (especially lamb) has some dire "digestive consequences" the next day for Bonnie too.
  16. One good thing about a Chihuahua, they aren't confused with any other breed
  17. I don't think my 3.5kg, submissive Chihuahua Bonnie fits that category then
  18. 4yo Chihuahua 5 days a week 1 x chicken neck and 1/3 cup dried food a day = about 30c a day 2 days a week Mince and veges and 1/3 cup dried food a day = about 60c a day About $3 a week The chi-chis are very cheap to feed!!
