  1. An aged fox hound

    If he came from a really bad situation he might be better off in the kennels if he is getting some attention, training and good food. 2 years does seem like a long time, but if they are working on his behaviour maybe he needed a few months and then he has been slow to be adopted. Genuine question, how long do those saying he should be pts think AWL should keep /work with a dog before making the call. If they see continuous improvement and the dog isn’t stressed or deteriorating at what point do people think they should euthanise him? A shelter near me has dogs that have been there for longer.I used to volunteer there, the dogs got daily walks and lots of human interaction, they would try to find foster families for any dog that appeared to not be coping well with the shelter environment- and they worked tirelessly to find the right homes. I am not trying to start a ruckus, just interested in other opinions. I hope Rocky finds a good home very soon.

  4. Luxating Patella op recovery

    Our girl was on strict crate rest post surgery, she was allowed to swim after a few weeks so we took her to hydrotherapy. This helped manage her energy without her getting hurt.
  5. Dog Poo Composting

    We have an Ensopet system. It’s been going for a good while and so far no smell, the only hard part was digging the hole.We have two medium sized dogs but they do tend to poo on walks so am guessing it is being fed about 1 to 2 poos every couple of days. I like the fact it is all in one box and so simple to set up and use. Dog Compost kit
  6. I think my dogs are broken. Last year when I had flu and could barely move my girl nicked my lunch that hubby had left, then my tissues, then as a final insult dribbled into my lemsip rendering it undrinkable. Both my Goons couldn’t care less if you are sick and will dement you off your deathbed so they can have a walk. Friends tell me how intuitive and caring their dogs are , mine just mercilessly noseboof the crap out of me for a snack, play, yard time, whatever. Sigh, Lassie they are not.

    That's Mbili, Askari's new sister who sometimes not on purpose chomps on her cousin Issy. It was great that they had a really good day out with no grumbles.

  13. What Would You Do?

    Poor bloody dog, clueless owner and people advocating tipping paint on it, tying it up, spraying pepper in it's mouth, putting it in a headlock etc.. Shame your son can't carry out the suggestions on the owner rather than the dog. Glad your boy hasn't been bitten and you might have inadvertently found a solution by virtue of the dog getting paint all through his coat, and good on his boss for backing him up. Some people just should not have a dog at all.
  14. Mistaken Dog Identity

    My sister has been asked by a small boy(7ish) if her black GSD is a Dire Wolf. My first thought was how does a kid that little know what a Dire Wolf is. He must have been watching GOT. My two are Shar Pei but are variously called Pug, Frenchie, Bulldog and once the Lilac girl was a Pitbull, I assume because her nose leather is lilac too and they though she was a "rednose." If I say they are Shar Pei the most common response is "oh one of them fighting dogs," said as they take two or three steps back. I don't try to correct them because they never believe they are a guardian not a fighting breed and they have seen them on Cesar you know.
