  1. I too have often tried to find info on grass eating. Molly does this too and so does my cat. Doesn’t happen all the time, just on and off and neither appear “off” in any way and I haven’t changed their diets at all.
  2. What a pretty little dog. Shame she has diabetes. I looked after one of Mollys brothers a while ago. He’s got diabetes too and required injections twice a day. I did it but I didn’t feel comfortable or confident about it. But it is easy and I’m sure you’ll deal with it quite nicely.
  3. So sorry to read of your loss. Terribly hard to let them go. Just keep thinking of the happy times you had. Take care
  4. Molly has always been socialised and walked. Some people and dogs she takes an instant dislike to though. Out walking I can tell by her body movements which it is going to be and I change the direction if I think she’s going to bark at them. She’s definitely a little more picky these days since the attack. She gets 2 walks a day and this is as much for her as me but she dictates whether it’s a sniff and stroll or a good fast workout. I’ve always talked to all animals too. And I think to a certain degree they understand and I’ve always had a good bond with my pets. They too come looking for me if I disappear for too long. Molly always perks up her ears but the same can’t be said for Lucy cat. Even my cockatiel appears to understand me. In saying all this, I still know they are animals and treat them as such. A dog can snap at any time and I wouldn’t trust any of them.
  5. Still agree and it doesn’t matter what others think as I think we know our dogs. I know Molly is healthy, happy and is very energetic and she does very well on her diet. Her weight is perfect for her and her coat is shiny and soft too.
  6. Twodoggies2001 I love your comment. Totally my opinion too. With you 100%
  7. Welcome batgirl. What a sweet looking dog you have.
  8. I’m no help but just want to wish you luck with your boy. Hope you can sort out his problems
  9. She’s lovely. Such precious videos. Lucky little dog to have such a wonderful owner.
  10. Definitely sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. If it was me and my dog, we’d be nowhere near there. Foolish bunch of dog owners in my opinion.
  11. Sorry to hear of your loss. So hard when you have already lost one not long ago. Take care
  12. I tend to agree. My girl had a litter once and one of the puppies was a bit whiny. Now 5 years on he is a fantastic dog but is still known to be a bit of a whinger.
  13. Thankyou for sharing. I’m so happy you found Sam after all those years and finally got him back home. Obviously where he deserved to be.
  14. Sorry to hear of Pickles passing. She looks such a beautiful pup. Take care.
  15. Beautiful photos of beautiful dogs. As usual
  16. Sorry to hear your beautiful girl has grown her wings. It’s certainly never easy saying goodbye. It sounds like she was such a precious little girl. My thoughts are with you.
  17. Not sure. I haven’t gone much further into it but at a rough guess I think they possibly could. From memory I think you can message them any questions. It was a while ago that I was looking into.
  18. I’ve thought about this too and one company that I found ( American though) is mypetprints.co They sound ok. You upload a photo of your pet, choose the size of decal, can add their name too, if you like and can also choose between black/ white or colour.
  19. When we decided it was Zenas time I rang our vet and arranged the appointment with them and then I rang the cremation company and told them what time she was to be done and that she’d be ready to be picked up from the vets any time after that. I had already spoken to them some time beforehand and organised her urn and plaque. They were just waiting then for me to give them the go ahead. They rang a few hours after saying that she had been picked up and was safely in their hands. I presume the vets do have a freezer or fridge. I never asked. Our first dog was euthanised in the afternoon and I actually rang the cremation company when we got home and they picked him up not long after. I wasn’t that organised as he was our first pet to pass. They were very helpful. I then used them again 9 years later for Zena. They really were very kind and had treated me very well. Our vet was happy for us to choose as I’m sure most would be.
  20. I’ve had just 2 schnauzers euthanised and then cremated. Both are in urns sitting in a bookshelf in our lounge room where I can see them and think about the good times with them. I admit at first it was difficult seeing them like that but I now like to know they are still close to me. And it wasn’t an option for us to do anything different as they still deserve to be in our company. It’s where we like them to be. I used a cremation company, ( one I researched and chose myself) the same one for both. They did a brilliant job. They rang me once they had picked them up from the vet and brought them home a few days later. Always willing to talk and were just so professional and lovely in such a sad time. Individual cremation too. Wouldn’t want anything else. The cost wasn’t too bad. Just can’t remember how much now though. Less than $500 though. At the time of euthanasia it was all done very peaceful. Neither of mine were sedated first. We just held them on the table, on blankets, and talked to them the whole time. The vet administered the injection and both went within seconds. Quietly with no fuss. Obviously beforehand we were told of the procedure and that they may make little movements, although they have passed. That’s quite normal. We got to spend time as much time alone with them as we wanted. We certainly weren’t rushed out or made to feel like we had to leave. We also paid and did any paperwork first so we could just leave. It’s certainly a hard, sad time but it is wise to be prepared. Take care. Xx
  21. All are so sweet but I do particularly like the looks of Kammi and Clives face is just so sweet and innocent.
  22. I’m really sad to hear your news. Wish it had been a foreign body or something fixable. 10 is too young. I’ve lost a dog (schnauzer) at 10 and 9 and it worries me a lot. Molly is 9 and a half and I watch her closely for any “signs”. Just continue having good times with your boy and keep him happy. My thoughts are with you.
