    Hi Kitt, Let me know if you'd like some recommendations for Brisbane breeding folk. In Brisbane there are a few breeders, but I also have recommendations for breeders south of the border. Airfares arent extreme to send a pup up..
  2. Have sent an enquiry to wayrods biz:)
  3. It didn't include all vet work, just final inspection vet work. plus 3 days boarding which i don't think i need. How do they determine value of dog? Oberon isn't desexed, I don't have intentions to breed but don't also feel the need to desex him.

    Yep Oberon is good. He slowed down afterwards but is pretty frisky again now. He was so bad they had him on oxygen. 3 days at the emergency vet. So glad we had pet insurance.
  5. thanks guys, i'm still shopping around. He is entire but can prove i've had him a long time. Who is Wayrod associated with?

    Popping my head back in to say hi :) Shed a tear at seeing Donnys pic. But how wonderful to see all the Alyosha litter at 2 yrs of age. Its been a difficult year for me having nearly lost Oberon in August last year(to a tick) and then losing Donny to a snake in March. We may be moving to New Zealand in the next couple of months and I'd be lying if i wouldn't feel hugely relieved by the absent of ticks and snakes over there. Great seeing Bella and Arya playing also.
  7. Hi, long time since I've been on here. We're considering moving to NZ and understand the requirements for importing Oberon to the country. We just got a quote for transportation of him via one transport company for $2150. Is there a way for me to bypass the transport company so long as i meet all the requirements. Also is this a typical quote? he is 38kg or so and a big dog and the cost included purchase of a crate. How much does the average crate cost? the company quoted for a crate of 110 cm (L) x 50 cm (W) x 85 cm (H). thanks for any help.

    Alyosha, sorry to hear about your prang. inconvenient for sure. hope you guys didn't have any injuries.

    great photo of the fur kids longclaw. I'm afraid my boys are unlikely to enjoy the frost given we're unlikely to get much if any. its been a little bit cooler lately and Dony is really getting some nice coat. Think i've given up on Oberon ever getting much of a coat. With the cooler weather Oberon is seeming more spritely and unfortunately has started night guarding. meaning he thinks he sees something which is really nothing and growls and barks at it. it resulted in him coming into our bedroom and snoozing the night away in comfort. unfortunately Donny had to stay out as he is a chronic wandered and raider. can almost guarantee he will choose to go to the toilet in one room or another. they both get the evenings but then go back out for the night.
  10. Critique & Comments

    my personally preference is for the first edit. not keen on the lost colour from the original but thats my personal preference. think the crop is great.

    oh poor Bella.. Hope it heals nicely for her. It can happen so easily. i still don't know exactly how Oberon did his foot. I hope Sascha finds a nice home. and its good that she has some nice carers to look after her in the meantime.

    Awesome shot, just love it pixie-meg I love the second sofa hog in the background too :laugh: Lovely to see Cowboy annie, and glad to hear he is on the mend :) I love this! Very very good :D i'm very tempted to get it printed up and put in my office. love it. kja, i love the DOF in yours, very nice and its a lovely warm shot. gapvic. love the book shot, nicely composed. do you use lightroom? i reckon it'd be fun to play with the saturation on that one. i'm desperate to get lightroom, i trialled it and now my trial is up i keep seeing all that i can do with my shots that i can't right now.

    Rainy, there aren't too many neuter shows up this way. i don't intend to breed with my two but know i can keep them entire responsibly. besides many people start out just showing and become breeders anyway.
  15. How Do You Choose The Right Breed?

    don't know too much about the breeds but given you already have gun dogs in the lab, the GSP would probably be the most compatible. but it probably doesn't matter too much
