  1. I haven't been here in years but I just read this. I am so sorry to hear this.. Buddy was one of my favourite boy and I think about him time to time.. I'm so sorry to hear this. RIP Buddy.
  2. For my girl... I get a baby pool and fill it so the water goes just above the knee and let her walk around it for about 2 minutes. This build muscles around the thighs so it won't put to much pressure on the knees. Also I keep her lean and fit. My girl was graded 2 on her back knee when she was about 8 months and was told she needed immediate surgery but I decided not too. She is now 5 years old and pain free. I do give her fish oil tablets, she is super fit and lean. She gets walks everyday (2x 15 mins daily), we walk along the water a lot, I do restrict on her jumping activities (as in no dog sports and no jumping over anything) and she is on a strict diet that I don't allow her to get fat (she will eat me out of house and home if I let her.. she is a pig!) Emmy does go to a chiro once or twice a year (or when needed) to make sure that things are still going well. Her Chiro says she is doing great and probably won't need surgery in the near future, but she might need one in the far future :)
  3. I'll be there on Easter Saturday with the Samoyeds :)
  4. Sure do, if the cafe allows. I have taken them since they were pups so they are use of the enviornment. Both just lays under the table/chairs and snooze while we eat and drink.
  5. Ignore and continue walking... Funny because most asian loves GSD but it's a fear thing. Kids are taught to be scared of dogs because of parents thinks dogs are dirty etc, and it's a vicious cycle, and they were never taught anything different as they grow older.
  6. Little dogs can walk for more than 30 minutes :p I feed my dogs after their walk all the time... i usually wait 45 minutes after their walk to feed them though. For water, in Sydney with the weather, you should always give them access to water. For crating.. can you set up a big pen area for them instead of crating them and lay newspaper out for them instead? I won't be comfortable crating a dog for more than 3 hours max at a time.
  7. It's a stupid ad... first time I saw it, I think i muttered '[email protected]#ing idiots'
  8. ..and why your friends may not be the ideal new owners . You'll have to rip the bandaid off all at once . fresh start. If you were to do it.. maybe contact your dog's breeder and she can take him back and rehome the dog for you or contact NSW Samoyed Rescue. I wouldnt rehome to friends or family either.
  9. Rehoming is an "all or nothing" sitution... once you give up the right of ownership of the dog, you have to let him go. Not fair for the dog or new family if you keep wanting to see him, taking for walks etc. I dont get where is sydney where it's hard to travel to get to work...
  10. I am very picky with my puppies and I don't mind waiting a long time for. Like with Skeeter - whom I got from Bjelkier, we talked for a long time on exactly what pup I want and looking for that will fit into my home life but also what I want to do with him, but I trust her to give me that pup. I did go see the pups at 6 weeks old and still then I didn't really know which one I will get. At the end, I did get the pup I've always wanted and so much more (still working out if that's a good thing or bad thing :p Skeeter is a special guy) If you find a breeder who you get along with and understands what you want/looking for, you gotta trust them to give you the right pup for you. They put in the hard work for the first 8-10 weeks of the pups lives and knows them best... Saying that, I did have a say in what i thought of the pup and always had the chance to say 'Nope, I don't want a pup from this litter' too.
  11. if its possible.. do you think you can go to a dog show and meet some breeders there?
  12. Em has killed birds. Never bitten other dogs or human but I dont put her in situation where she feel she has too. Skeeter wont hurt a fly. In fact he is scared of blow flies.. i am dead set serious.
  13. I honestly don't know what I will do... but it's a sucky situation to be in
