  1. Approaching breeders to see if they have retiring adult dogs for a pet home is really a great idea. That is how I got Tonka my papillon and Penny my ragdoll....both were 3 years old and are still going strong into old age!
  2. I am currently traveling in Scotland and had the pleasure of seeing a Westie in the West Highlands. It occurred to me that they may originate from this very area. The cute thing was he was with his owner and came with us on a cruise of the Loch Ness. Dogs are allowed many places here that they aren't in Australia .
  3. So this week twice now my little papillon Tonka has had a kind of episode or turn. I notice because he suddenly starts trying to get on top of me and appears anxious and clingy. He can't seem to be still and paces with the occasional jumping as if he has a sudden pain or sensation. It does seem to pass after half an hour to an hour. He is panting and wining a bit . He is 13 soon and the first time it occurred i did ring the Emergency Vet and was advised to monitor him. I kind of feel it isn't severe or frequent enough to take him to the vet. I had a full check uplast year with bloods and everything was generally good. There was mention of him possibly having very early Cushing Disease I think?? Anyway it is my first experience with an aging dog. I thought he might be dying the other night. Today was less severe.

  15. Yep, 15 kgs in both my recent unit complexes. Yet a terrier may be way less suitable for unit living than a great dane or big dog??? Fortunately, I have not seen this enforced so far. I tried for "CAn I have up to 15kg's of pets...1 x 4kg papillon and 1 x 5 kg rag doll and I could have something else?" My strata manager laughed :D
  16. This is my big concern/ worry, about how the Greyhound breed lives on now that the industry that breeds the bulk will close down?? I always had a Greyhound in my future
  17. I'd put my dogs down too before handing them over to places like the RSPCA. Absolutely Well being so ready to put your dogs down is the easy way out, no responsibility taken to find a solution. If the dogs' lives are so cheap then that just confirms the rightness of the decision. Disgusting attitude Dead is not suffering. Dead is dead

  19. Thanks again for ideas. I am stocking the cleaning cupboard and experimenting :)
  20. Thanks Snook and all. Just phoned my new local Petstock and they have it. Yay. I am spring cleaning at home and this is part of it
  21. Thanks guys. I am hunting down a stockist in Sydney and resisting the urge to grab a 'similar' product out of ease :laugh:
  22. Hi all, I have discovered that Tonka has urinated against a furniture leg at some point in time. I have light beige carpet and there is a dry yellow stain on it. I am sure I could get this off with professional cleaning but wonder if there is any do-it-yourself method/ product that I can try. It is not a huge area but is dry/old. I appreciate any recommendations :)
