  1. Water bowl for bearded dogs

    Her feet aren't to bad though her hair is cut short on them. I am gradually changing her diet from Advance+chicken frame/necks to a barf based diet with vegie slops (with acv) bones, yogurt and ground millet/rosehip/linseed mix plus some other beneficial herbs as well as a tooth-brushing each day. The Westies do well on this and their yeast-problems disappeared so I may as well give Zara the same
  2. Water bowl for bearded dogs

    I thought the rabbit/guinea pig waterer would be ok Mjosa but decided against it as dog's seem to like lapping up their water with gusto, it may be a little slow going for after walk drinking
  3. Water bowl for bearded dogs

    Thanks RP, I have to go to Bunnings tomorrow so I'll have a look then. There are also these Tassie-suggested Road Refresher bowls, they may be worth buying to see of the top will fit a stainless or glass bowl instead of the plastic https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_odkw=Road+Refresher&_sop=15&_osacat=1281&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.TRS0&_nkw=Road+Refresher&_sacat=1281 they may work better than the Cruiser bowls as they have a float that sits on the surface of the water and under the lid, as Dogzfevr said; Cruiser's are ok for traveling and keeping ears dry but not beards
  4. Water bowl for bearded dogs

    I decided to lash out on a Slopper Stopper, there are some GC second hand/shop demo ones on Amazon for just over $25 US but it appears they don't post to Oz https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B009VNMP50/ref=olp_page_1 I am very cross now sigh...
  5. Phoebe is having puppies!

    Whew! I saw you had updated and had feared the worst What a relief
  6. Does anyone know of a stainless steel option for a drinking bowl? Zara gets her beard soaking wet when she drinks and it'll only encourage yeast to inhabit it. I also find that I need to put in fresh water every time she drinks as the bowl has hooglies floating round in it. Something like this but in stainless and not too OTT price-wise https://www.amazon.com/Slopper-Stopper-Dripless-Water-Bowl/dp/B009VNMP50 her little beard is already stained

    I can't find any Dandie's either
  8. Removing Dog Knots/ Matts

    I think some of the DOLers suggested using a children's detangler. When I first bought Saffy I used 'Argon oil Heat Protecting Spray' that I bought at the Reject shop, it worked pretty well. If the dog has knots and matts don't bath him before you groom as it'll just compound the problem and it'll be impossible to get them out.

  10. Farewell my beautiful happy girl

    Thanks WM and thanks to everyone for your kind words, your understanding helps so much. Last Sunday I drove past the turn-off to the little beach where I took her for her last walk, I had this awful wave of grief; for Saffy as well as Pen, Mac and Daisy. They are forever in our hearts

  15. yep, get the dental, your dog will feel much better and will probably put on weight afterwards. Penny had a dental at 16 and Mac had his canine tooth removed at 15, they were both put on a drip after and recovered ok. The swf must be feeling really crappy with her sore teeth and despite her having a heart murmur she should cope with the operation; your vet knows about the heart murmur and anesthetics are pretty good so if your vet recommends the op it means that she/he is confident.
