  1. Should be called 'The poorly bred crisis'. I think we all know it's not just purebreds being bred with health issues.

    Lovely photo @Scottsmum. Your trip sounds exhausting though! Hope you weren't here on the Gold coast during our recent heat wave? @mingalingIs Mr Tits showing off the fact he can roll his tongue and not everyone can?

  6. Year of the Dog: 16 February

    Let's hope it's a good year for dogs in China! More info on this link if anyone is interested? I just found out I was born in the year of the dog. Whoo hoo! https://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/chinese-zodiac/dog.htm Dog Year Start End 2018 February 16, 2018 February 4, 2019 2006 January 29, 2006 February 17, 2007 1994 February 10, 1994 January 30, 1995 1982 January 25, 1982 February 12, 1983 1970 February 6, 1970 January 26, 1971 1958 February 18, 1958 February 7, 1959 1946 February 2, 1946 January 21, 1947 1934 February 14, 1934 February 3, 1935 Five Types of Dog; Which One Are You? In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth. For example, a Wood Dog comes once in a 60-year cycle. It is theorized that a person's characteristics are decided by their birth year's zodiac animal sign and element. So there are five types of Dogs, each with different characteristics: Type of Dog Year of Birth Characteristics Wood Dog 1934, 1994 Sincere, reliable, considerate, understanding, and patient Fire Dog 1946, 2006 Intelligent, hardworking, and sincere Earth Dog 1958, 2018 Communicative, serious, and responsible in work Gold Dog 1910, 1970 Conservative, desirable, cautious, and always ready to help others Water Dog 1922, 1982 Brave and self-centered, even seemingly selfish; well-versed in dealing with financial issues

    My apologies for being late this week. There's nothing my dogs love more than a taped up cardboard box full of different things. The mess isn't pretty but I figure better than a table leg! This box was full of newspaper scrunched around a small dydrated treats, some dog chews and stuffed kongs at the bottom. Funnily enough the Frenchie is like a shredding machine with cardboard. She'll rip chunks out faster than the BT could hope to do! The before photo kinda makes me think it's what it might look like if they just caught an antelope lol 2018-02-12_08-00-02 by Rachel Wallis, on Flickr
  9. Nella must be in heaven in that snow! How do they get away with no booties to prevent frost bite on their feet?
  10. dogs eating raw chicken

    Fantastic! I hope the same news channels who published the first, publish the second.. I'll be really surprised if they do though..
  11. dogs eating raw chicken

    I went to the uni website and read the original article. There's more than what was quoted above and it didn't just relate to meat! http://www.u-vet.com.au/news/dog-paralysis-condition-linked-to-eating-chicken-necks Dr le Chevoir said the bacteria Campylobacter was now considered a triggering agent in up to 40 per cent of GBS patients, which is present in undercooked chicken, unpasteurised milk products and contaminated water. The team studied 27 dogs with symptoms of APN and 47 dogs without, examining physical symptoms and interviewing the owners about recent behaviours and diet; focusing on the consumption of raw chicken meat.
  12. Grooming scruffy terrier

    I can only compare to a border terrier but my dogs coat is ready for stripping if I can pull the longer hairs out easily. If you can do this it would pay to start practicing a little bit at a time now to desensitize her, rather than a full groom at the groomer which leave them feeling uncomfortable because it's all done it once. It's best not to bathe them after a groom for at least a few days because their skin is sensitive and washing can irritate it.

    I'd love to know the story behind that old dog tag! My pic is of a baby fern leaf about to unfurl https

    I can just imagine the ear piercing scream it was probably emitting!
  15. Is he show material

    Assuming he's fully papered and entire you would be better off having someone look over him for structural faults and to assess him against the standards. Did his breeder show? Are they able to help you? Edited to say he looks like a real cutie! I've seen so many Bullmastiff recently with huge jowels and hanging skin.
