  1. Canidae Grain Free/Ivory Coat chicken necks sardines raw eggs and whatever crap he can scarf up off the floor when i'm not fast enough to stop him PLUS all the vegetables my girls don't like.
  2. Heading off today to see the Westies, the labs and the Springers with my sis. Ok she also entered some cakes so we will be searching out the cakes. Hope to see some of you there - just look for the steel haired spectacled woman with a 13 ur old in tow and a Canadian sister wearing hi-tops!!
  3. My Katie (kelpie) was incredible with snakes. She warned us about snakes twice when we moved up the coast - and there's no way she had any experience since she grew up in suburban Collaroy. Unfortunately, Georgia the Amstaff let her heart rule her head and died from a tangle with a large brown snake. I wasn't at home when it happened but the Fex took a pic of it and it was ovary curdling. I worry about Ernie since every thing he sees is presumed edible. He has eaten more Christmas beetles, cockroaches and skinks than I can count. As for spiders? I treat them the same way I do any uninvited house guest - I make life miserable until they leave. Or they get the flat end of my Doc Marten.
  4. Ernie is a Labrador '100%'. I am, apparently, a cocker spaniel. :laugh:
  5. Yup. Stupid Choccy Fratboy is a walking invitation for every numpty with any dog to let their dog rush up and say HIHIHIHIHIHI! I'm over it. Ernie now wears a nylon 'studded' thick collar (OK there's a hidden love heart on the buckle!) and as soon as any dog starts to rush him I yell 'Bad idea bad idea!' at the owner and put Ernie in a sit/stay. It works like a charm, this combo. I'm known as the lady with the worlds first Labrador attack dog.
  6. Landlords don't like renting to pet owners. The housing market is priced out of reach for younger people. People are more selfish now and don't want the lifelong responsibility. Gawd. I sound like a curmudgeon.
  7. What a lovely tribute. Sending hugs, WM.
  8. 'Rare blue Staffy!!' Gotta love the peoplez. :laugh:
  9. Ditto here. I have a health care worker visit me every Monday and it was requested that FratBoy be locked up. He sits and looks nobly suffering until she goes.
  10. Ernie is from a mixture of show lines and 'field' dogs (way back). Most of his litter went into service dogs - his sire is a bomb disposal dog in Sydney and his dam is a champion show dog. Most of his litter mates went to service homes. I know they kept Ernie to show but he's too laid back for the ring yet has an intense biddability that I can see would become annoying in a 'just' show dog. I intend to train him slowly to do things for me as he needs a job, tho he's chilled to the max. I too, would hate to see the lines split. A breeder that combines the best of both lines (as Ernie's did) gave me the chance to be owned by a spectacular Labrador - even tho I will never show or retrieve with him.
  11. How could I, stop my neighbour next door, breeding his so called JR to his very undersized whippet bitch? How could I, stop my other neighbour, from breeding her undershot so called aussie bulldog to produce more of the same? I can't, nor can any other responisable breeder. Indeed no one can cause breeding dogs is not against the law. People are, in general, f***ing idiots.
  12. I'm tempted to give Ernie his cool mat now.
  13. As someone who grew up in a country that has rabies, it sure sounds like rabies. Eep. Poor poor dog.
  14. Oh Grumpette... There's something about your dogs warm and shining faces when paired with elf ears or a tutu...
  15. He's getting a bath every fortnight in the heat. I think it's just his natural boy smell and I'm just being over sensitive. Brushing daily seems to help but nothing is quite like the pong of wet Labrador. It could be bottled and used as a weapon of mass destruction.
  16. Labradors shed. Oh dear maude how they shed. Course you could buy an all black lounge and carpet. And have black Lino in the kitchen. And wear black all the time. And have black bedsheets... :laugh: Sez me who's contemplating relocating in chocolate lab brown.
  17. How do you get it delivered and order online??
