  1. Two of our baby British Bulldogs also had their debut today. They did so well for just 3 months old.
  2. Our new addition to the show ring. Such a lovely boy 1st show today at 9 months old. Best Dog CC and Reserve Best of Breed
  3. Thanks Sway I have been googling for results but all I got was last years link
  4. Havent been on DOL for ages. So apologies if there is already a topic somewhere. Results today??
  5. Our Dane is 7 months old now and pretty much everything that has been said above is as it is. Our lounge has been taken over by a Dane. The kitchen bench(which has been untouched by the Bulldogs) is no longer safe with a Dane. I have lost count as to how many times my feet have been stood on. They are an extremely intelligent breed and definitely require extensive training. We feed Canidae (Bulldogs and Mr Princess the Dane) He was taught from the age of 3 months old that he MUST wait until he is given the OK to have his dinner. His food bowl is always raised(as he grows) and he is being taught manners and learns very quickly. He loves the speak up command also! We also do hand signals with training as well as voice commands which he has quickly learnt.
  6. I find it extremely sad that a supposedly responsible Community person has acted so thoughtlessly and inhumane towards an innocent animal and their own children. Actions like this will perhaps have an impact on that daughters life in regards to humane acts. Not a pleasant scenario to have to witness. RIP poor puppy
  7. 1 girl didn't make it with my litter and I had her PTS at 4 days old Very sad time with the circumstances of her passing but I wont go into it here. I also had to completely wean the puppies of their mum at 7 days old as she developed a huge infection and strong antibiotics saved her. Due to me twice daily checking her temp after the C section I was able to pick up her infection very quickly but I feel the puppies health was already compromised. Babies lost a lot of weight(they all do after birth) but this was a lot. They have had to make up extra for what they lost. We have also had a few other issues but our 5 babies are nearly 3 weeks old now and doing very well. The puppy breathe atmosphere is just beautiful and there are some lovely babies in the litter. Mother Winnie dried off really well. Sending a virtual puppy breathe pic
  8. Have been doing this for years. Can you provide proof that it destroys the coating on the kibble. Would cold water not do the same?
  9. We had our Bullmastiffs on Proplan Large breed adult. Feed this after 6 months old. Don't keep on feeding puppy. She needs to keep the dog a little on the lean side. Raise the dogs food bowl (you can make a feeding table out of wood or use plastic chairs) and make sure they are just reaching for their food but without straining to get it. Also soak the dogs biscuits in hot water and leave for a little while to cool. doesn't have to be a lot of water but just to moisten the bikkies. Yes manner are essential in these strong breeds.
  10. My two week old Bulldog babies are all chilled out over a wine bladder filled with water and frozen. Double sheet underneath them and bladder wrapped in a large plastic bag Cooled boiled water also during the day. keep checking the coolness of their bed to make sure it is not too cold. Happy babies
  11. Little bottles can be purchased at the downtown cheaper shops. Crazy Clarks stuff like that. You can get smaller nipples and bottles(premy ones) from a good chemist. I would also strongly recommend Impact Colostrum to give as soon as possible. You can give this to anyone of the babies if they a bit slow. If baby really wont suck try an eyedropper. Slow I know but the last thing you need to do is get milk down the lungs. Impact colostrum you can get from the vet
  12. I know you were asking for positive experiences but in my opinion every experience helps. Good and bad. I had a bitch(was 18 months old. Normal seasons, but had never been mated. She develop open Pyo and I opted to medicate. A heartwrenching experience and certainly not one for the fainthearted. You have to be with them 24 hours a day and then some until the treatment is finished(unless they stay at the vets) Everything went well and Abbey recovered. I had to mate her at the next season which I did. I also mated her Mum as she came into season 1 week before Abbey did. Normal matings, everything seemed to go well 3 weeks and then another week after that I had two bitches in at the vets getting desexed as both had closed pyo. First Abbey and then her Mum. Not everything is rosie so please be prepared
  13. Sway Is there any way Troy can pin this thread somewhere please. I was just about to try and find it when I see it is on today
