  1. That's pretty quick! How does the scoring system work for each?
  2. Hi guys, I am interested in how hip & elbow scoring works. How does the scoring system work? Does the vet provide results or are they sent away? What does it generally cost? (obviously that would vary with breed size) Thanks :)
  3. Awesome I'll check them out. I saw there's a fun day/get together in Cleveland this month, I might try & go along
  4. Thanks Huga, I'm definitely not naive when it comes to dogs/breeds so I had assumed the mini frenchie was just a shonky selling tool but thought I would clarify. Thank you very much for the link
  5. Hi guys! My hubby and I are looking to add a Frenchie to the family in Id say about 2 years. We know a little about the breed but would like to learn as much as possible before we actually get one. Someone told me you can get mini frenchies but I assume that's about as accurate as a teacup chihuahua hahaha. When choosing a breeder, what should we look for? We are in qld so if there's any qld breeders/owners in this thread Id love some feedback We currently own an 11 month old Great Dane, 4 year old boxer and 5 year old chihuahua
  6. Pablo the chihuahua shrinking even more in the wash!!!
  7. So my dogs are obsessed with rawhide, they enjoy other chews as well which they get but rawhide lasts at least a couple of days. Just wondering if anyone knows where I can buy decent sized rawhide in bulk? Obviously there's ebay but they're not really any cheaper than going to a pet store. Thanks :)
  8. YAY!!! Sounds like it was meant to be!My cousin has a bull arab and he's the most darling boy ever, almost as tall as a great dane and he's soooo gentle with his human sister who is only 7 months! On another note - I get my baby in 4 sleeps!!!!
  9. Thanks for the insight guys. I think he's about 8. I thought cushings but he doesn't seem to fit the description. I hope he's ok. I'll look up ascites as I've never heard of it. I'll be going to the vet with mum as she will probably be overwhelmed with whatever the vet says
  10. As I said the dog IS going to a vet and I am simply after people's insight. He is completely fine other than this so mum didn't see the need to panic and rush him to the vet and wanted to wait for her usual vet to return from holiday.
  11. So for about the last 1.5-2 weeks my mums dog (poodle x shihtzu x maltese) has had a hard tummy which looks like he's just eaten a big meal & his breathing sounds what I'd describe as wheezing. He's not acting any differently in anyway, eating, drinking & toileting are all normal & he's happy as can be. He's off to the vet on Wednesday (her vet is on holiday) so I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea what it could be? Everything I google brings up bloat which it quite obviously isn't.
  12. Also - there are a couple more pics in the great dane thread in breed subforums
  13. The bottom line, and really only line, of being owned by a new puppy. The puppy must be the ONE to tug the heart strings... ( as well as being healthy, of good temperament). Welcome again, Baxter, The One Haha thanks! Next saturday can't come fast enough. The breeder says he's the snuggliest so I'm pretty happy about that - pretty sure I'm going to cry when we pick him up!
  14. hehe you might have trouble finding him! I know a lady with a Blue Great Dane and her lounge was the suede in grey/blue, and she was forever thinking he was missing and then realising he was just sleeping on the couch :laugh: Haha oh dear!
  15. Hahahaha our whole house is monochrome so he'll fit in well!!! We seriously love all the colours, it was just a matter of finding "the one".
  16. Thanks guys your response is amazing!!! We're so excited. I am trying to work at getting pics resized on photo bucket so I can upload and then I will post direct into the GD thread. He is black ???? We weren't even planning on black but his little white chin almost killed us bc it's the same as our boxers lol
  17. Haha thanks Sir Snook. I actually had my previously chosen breeder do the research for me but I didn't feel the need to bring that up...should have known better, there's way too much judgement on this forum
  18. The breeder was recommended through a friend. She's only knew to the breeding world but both parents are from a breeder listed on DOL, she owns the mother of the pups. We only want a pet so not fussed with "show quality". Soooo excited
  19. In 2 weeks - the day before my birthday! It was a complete accident we found him, we just stumbled upon him and fell in love straight away. Sorry the pics aren't too good I uploaded from my phone
  20. I'm actually terrified of brining in a puppy to the mix, I'm trying to re-educate myself on all the do's and don'ts - especially with a GD, they're like no other! Do you have any pics handy of your boy? What's his name again?
  21. Yes I will definitely speak with the breeder, I wanted to get other people's opinions also :) I'm trying not to get excited but it's hard!
