  1. Seriously Willem what is your problem? It was a tiny gap, that may very well have been filled before that day but rain could have washed away some dirt or a rock was moved....who knows? More than likely, like a normal person, the owner would have thought that hole was TOO SMALL to be a concern. Once again, would you like to show us the covered concrete bunker you must obviously keep your dogs in because I fail to see how something couldn't get moved or a small hole dug any other way. Obviously people are only human and we're not all perfect dog owners like yourself And don't even start on that powerful dog BULLSHIT! Jesus H Christ......just because a dog is big does not automatically make is a danger to society. Tendons can be severed by any breed.....
  2. ...in this source from another angle; I don't call this a sound fence to contain powerful dogs, however, I don't know how it looks from the inside. If there is nothing that would hinder the dogs from digging their way through it is definitely not suitable. so your dog is contained in an escape proof yard? Yes, please show us the fort knoxs you have created to keep your dog 100% safe from everything that could possibly happen.
  3. That is a massive colour bond fence, how much more do people have to do to keep their dogs away from people? That tiny hole is way too small for a Malamute to get through or easily stick it's head out. I would assume that would be more than enough to protect my dogs.
  4. Have you seen their fencing? It looks pretty damn good to me. That tiny little hole barely looks big enough for a Malamutes muzzle
  5. Well that's you. I sure as hell wouldn't. There would have to be a way to find out at the time, like a DNA swab maybe, surely the police were involved in this case? I don't know. Maybe I'm way off here.... But there is no way I'd take the life of two innocent dogs on a maybe. Something is clearly being omitted here or the council would be all over this, and rightly so. I'm just saying it would be intelligent to stay impartial because we all know how the media love to twist the truth.
  6. I'm not saying anything about this situation is OK, I'm stating that the articles are vastly different from one another and that it is strange. FFS....there is clearly something not being said by the media here otherwise the dog would be PTS straight away. And if they don't know which dog did it, bow are they going to put down the right animal?
  7. I agree, something is really off here compared to the original. Poor kid
  8. Lord no! Imagine the germs It's fairly simple, if they don't make the store easy for me to access when I have my dogs with me, I'll just take my business elsewhere and buy online.
  9. I talk to mine all the time, appologise, say please and thank you and then have full conversations with them. I don't think the Havanese or Labrador understand but I'm starting to wonder about the Samoyeds and the Shiba :laugh:
  10. Seriously......another one!? Good lord, you entered into an agreement, STICK TO IT! What happened to people honoring their word? Why did you think it was ok at the time but not now? 17 months old is not too young for a mating, he will not be milked for his sperm (really......really??) he will be mated and you will have him back in no time. He's not exactly going to suffer..... I fail to see what the actual issue is here aside from you not sticking to your word.
  11. Not sure my samoyeds would be very comfortable in a trolley.....although I'd pay to see SSM stuff the IW in a trolley lol
  12. It's illegal to leave your children home alone but not your dog. Really? I had no idea..... You can always get someone to watch the kids. Look I'm just throwing back the same silly things people are throwing at me. I am fully aware of the fact that it's illegal to keep children at home, unsupervised at a certain age. That is not an excuse however to have badly behaved children who aren't under control in a public space. I feel exactly the same way about dogs. Train in to be polite and under control in public or don't bring it out. It's very simple.
  13. My dogs are fine and I know they're safe with children however yes, I do expect people to have their children under control because that's the responsible thing to do. And yes, it's true that children take longer to mature but their parents are mature and if they aren't able to keep an eye on their children then the same argument can be used for the dogs. Why are they there? It's a two hour round trip for me to go anywhere so I won't apologise for needing to combine a few errands when I need too. This thread just reminds me of why I am so desperate to move away from this backwards country....
  14. For those of you who are saying you wouldn't take your dogs to Bunnings or see why others should, you don't live out of town do you? Some of us do however and sometimes we have our dogs with us and it gets bloody hot. So yes, I will take my very well trained dog into Bunnings so it doesn't die in the heat and yes I also expect parents to control their children the way I control my dogs. Fair is fair.
  15. Oh my god....seriously, cut the passive aggressive, spoilt brat shit and actually look at what people are telling you. No one has an issue with the fact that you don't like breeders terms LOADS of others don't like it, but they did the intelligent thing and refused breeders terms when buying a pup. You however didn't want to wait and took a deal you aren't happy with and now your bitching and moaning about it, claiming the breeder has somehow done you wrong, when in fact it's the other way around. Grow up, accept responsibility gracefully, like a damn adult, quit your bitching and GET OVER IT!!! You and others like you are why I quit breeding. The stress is just not worth it.
  16. How is she going to make 30k on the litter? What is her secret? Is she selling Tibetan Mastiffs to the Chinese at $10,000 a puppy?? I'm curious about that as well. 30K on one litter? I don't think so.....
  17. I wouldn't have signed one on those terms in the first place. But they aren't all like that. Exactly, not all breeders are like this. If you weren't happy about it, why did you agree to the terms? You could have gone elsewhere.
  18. I was a part of the NSW Samoyed club but left last year. The politics is too much for me and I have no interest in being a part of it. They do a lot of good work for the breed however getting the dogs out there, helping puppies buyers and taking in rescues.
  19. Sounds like it might be snow nose. More common in some breeds than others and it might get darker in the summer. All but one of my samoyeds has snow nose over the winter and come summer they're pitch black again.
  20. When I worked at a vet clinic we had a lot of dump and runs, some people just didn't care however others were so upset they simply couldn't be there. One woman springs to mind. Her Akita had been coming to us for months, cancer had been eating away at his bones for ages and she had done everything in her power to help him but eventually it got too bad and PTS was her only option. This poor woman was an absolute mess and begged her boys favourite staff members to sit with him in his final moments and she would then come and take him away. It was a heartbreaking moment, we all sat on the ground with him and hugged him good bye, he was relaxed and happy at the end. Thinking about it now still makes me tear up.... My OH can't handle being in the room when they pass either. I always send him out to the car to wait while I'm in the room with our pet. Some people just can't handle it and I don't judge them for that.
  21. I feel very similar about my 14 yr old Labrador. Lestat is a cool dude but we aren't close and never really have been. I put it down to breed. I'm not a gundog person, give me a devlish Spitz any day. Lestat has had a great life and never wanted for anything so I'd say if your whippet is happy there is no need to get too worried about not having a close bond.
  22. Mine have been told to be quiet so often they've totally stopped doing it at night now. Good doggies
  23. I have no desire to have children. I'm content with my pack and enjoy their company.
  24. I don't either, everyone wears whatever appeals to me at the time.
