  1. Guide Dog Dies In Hot Car

    OT but Trisven13 I remember watching that about the dad who usually didn't take the child to child care but had to that day and forgot. That will stay with me forever, now that I have a bub I think of that poor man nearly daily. If I have left bub at home with his dad I reach into his seat (still rear facing) to double check he is not in the car. I can only lock my car from the passenger door and only get bub out the passenger side -it is something I am so paranoid about.
  2. Waiting On Zeke's Breed Dna Test...

    One of our local vets have a regular article in the paper, for the last few weeks they have been flogging this test. I'm guessing there's good money in it for them.
  3. My heart goes out to you. RIP Buddy. Word of mouth is the best form of advertising for any business, and it also works in reverse. Yell about your wonderful dog and tell his story, you will undoubtedly save other dogs lives.
  4. Pet Cremation

    I do some work for Pets at Peace Central West, here's a link to our page and if you look in the products section it shows the range of urns/boxes and other options we have. I guess if people haven't had a pet cremated before it doesn't hurt to have a look at all these things people are posting now as when the time comes and you do lose your pet you may remember something you had seen and liked without it being quite so stressful. http://www.petsatpeacecw.com/ We put the pets ashes into a plastic zip lock bag before putting them into any of our urns or boxes because we understand how devestating it would be if you were to accidently break them. If people request the urn or box not be sealed we leave it open for them but even when we do seal them we make sure that it is possible without too much hassle for them to be opened. So sorry to hear of everyone's losses at this time of year.

  8. Rainy Day Activites?

  9. What Is The Age Difference Between Your Dogs?

    Chevy is 6 and a half and we have just had 2 pups come into our lives (now 3 moths old). They are litter mates, not ideal I know, but originally they werent meant to be staying with us permanently. I am 12 days off having our 1st bubba so undoubtedly we will get another dog in probably 5 - 7years when the child is ready for their own dog.
  10. Dog Act Wins Britain's Got Talent

    Wow that's cool, and pretty amazing that an animal act has won one of these shows!!
  11. Roughly..neutering Costs

    I called a whole bunch of vets yesterday to find out the cost of desexing a female around 10kg and the prices ranged from $190 - $285 but I think they offer a lot of variations - eg including pain meds for 4 days or only 2 day, some did not include the cost of pain relief.
  12. Mixing Dogs At Kennels

    For my own dogs I am very against having them with other dogs at kennels. I have only boarded very few time but am lucky enough to have found a great kennel where dogs have their own individual day pen and their own individual night pen. There are 2 styles of day pens, one for the non escape artists (fence height 6foot) they are 10m X 10m and then the jail cells (fence height 3m with inward slope at top) and they are about 4m X 5m. They have a maximum of 20 dogs at any one time in their entire kennel. They are a retired couple who do it for their love of dogsand to keep themselves occupied, not to make money.
  13. Changing Their Walking Routine

    I would start by just separating them at home, maybe in different rooms, or one in the backyard and one in the house. Vary the lengths of times that you do this for, then when they are comfortable I would take one out and just sit out the front for a bit, not actually leaving the yard. I would do this until they were both happy. It could be a long process but it's definately worth doing. I have always made sure that I walk my dogs in differnt combinations so that no one becomes stressy.
  14. Stuff To Do With Your Dog In Orange

    Greater Western dog club in Bathurst have obedience (Saturday Morning) and agility (Sunday Morning) and are running Rally - O on the odd weekend here and there, their email address is [email protected] contact Rodney for full details. There is also the Dennison club in Bathurst, sorry don't have their details. Orange is definately a non event for dog things these days. I haven't been to the obedience club here in years but have been told how it has deteriorated. Good luck with your driving!!
