  1. Coping as an only dog

    Have you considered crating him while you are out with some of your clothes or bedding in his crate? Another idea is maybe recording yourself reading a story and putting that on for him while he is in his crate with your scent.
  2. One last ride with his boss...

    RIP gorgeous Leo. You have earnt a good rest by the river bank watching the world go by, in between bouts of crazy activity. @persephone may your brother not miss his constant mate too much during the working hours, and may he remember him with a happy heart during the down time each night.
  3. Introducing.... Bolt!

    Hello there gorgeous girl. I know that you will be spoilt rotten and loved unconditionally. Welcome to the DOL family.
  4. Oh Tdierikx, may you and Trouble have the most awesome 2-4 weeks enjoying all the most decadent party food that you can get your hands on. Make as many memories as you can and don't forget to photograph them. Huge pats to the absolutely gorgeous pat tart.

    Hi Jarrad, So very sorry to hear that Pepper has passed away. The world has lost a few great Rotties this year. May you and Basil continue to enjoy many adventures together for years to come.

  9. The adventures of Hailey, the Tassie Devil

    Zeph absolutely adores her, but she loves him even more. Yet she annoys the crap out of him. She is always attached to his neck. There is a constant game of keeping off going on, where the one that has the chosen toy will push it into the other's face to start the game, and then they end up giving the toy up to keep the game going. Hailey is constantly on the go and always into everything. Shoe laces and tags have no place in shoes or on toys at the moment. DDD, Hailey has definitely perked him up since Dee's passing. He has a new interest in everything and is playing with toys again. AH, she is a true Tassie Devil, always flat out. OH and her have a battle going on over a large excavation project in the back yard. She digs and he fills it in. She digs the hole bigger and eats the grass that he puts on top, and he fills it in again. Rinse and repeat. My money is on Hailey winning the war. She has more persistence lol tdierikx, Zeph can be quite protective of his girl. There is a never ending peeing competition with the entire male Collie over the back. Hailey play bows to Tyson, and Zeph goes over and pees on him. Thank goodness she has slowed down a little. At one stage she was putting on 2 kg a week. But her growth plates are still huge, so there is still a lot of growing to do yet. pers, so very true. Hailey is a fast learner. And fast mover. She can push the back door open and bolt inside, but the door closes and leaves Zeph standing on the other side, looking in rather forlornly. So glad that you love the update. Hailey is a gorgeous whirlwind, who is the cutest nut case we have ever had in this household.
