  1. Licking stitches

    I’ve rarely needed to use an Elizabethan collar to stop mine licking.
  2. I often buy salmon scraps from the fish shop and add them to meals. The dogs love them. They crunch up any bones and fins.
  3. Lab proof dog beds

    Kuranda beds are tough.
  4. Best vacuum cleaner for pet hair?

    I wouldn’t buy a vacuum that I can’t pull apart to remove blockages. The other cleaners I’ve had I’ve had to send off to get repaired when they blocked up.
  5. Kamuzz can’t read that link without a subscription. I like my Dyson but have been wondering about the new LG stick. Reading reviews there seem to be a fair few complaints. We’ve had the Dyson a good few years now and a plastic dohicky that you press to empty it has broken. But I love that you can pull it apart to clear blockages.
  6. Pet Friendly Accommodation

    Might be a little further south than we’d like I think. But thanks
  7. Pet Friendly Accommodation

    Can anyone recommend any dog friendly accommodation Illawarra or south coast NSW please?
  8. Old dog drinking

    Yes that may be a possibility as to why. Thanks. She does get sore and is on meds for arthritis. The bowls we have are fairly narrow and have kept Spaniel ears out for years. She wears a snood for dinner but she wouldn’t keep it on all day. I’ll see if I can find something to sit the bowls on and see if that helps
  9. Old dog drinking

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Our old Cavalier, Lacey, always drinks with one ear dipped in water. She used to do it occasionally but she’s always dripping water through the house now and the others don’t like drinking out of the bowl after it’s been dunked in. We haven’t changed bowls. I’ve no idea why? Any thoughts please? I guess I could clip her ears off but she’s so pretty. It’s not a major hassle. Just need to clean bowls frequently and mop the floors. I’m just curious as to why. Thanks

    I’m sure she’d love a friend Jemappelle! Thanks Poochmad.
  11. The Ckcs Photo And Chat Thread

    Didn’t happen if there’s no photo! Since I last posted we have lost Bree. Her heart was worn out Lacey is 14 and still chugging along. She tried to catch a bird this morning! Still plenty of spirit.
  12. I know of a standard poodle who really wanted to kill the family’s cats. He was serious! Cavaliers moult constantly and furminators damage their coat. I wouldn’t recommend using one on them. If hair about is a major worry a Cavalier is not the dog for you! I’ve had them for many years and they are wonderful dogs. They are friendly and many are very amenable to training.
  13. Introducing.... Bolt!

    Beautiful baby!
  14. Which out of the 2 please

    Please find a reputable breeder who health tests their breeding dogs and raises their puppies well This pup will be with you a long time so it’s important to choose carefully. And having support from a breeder is great.

    Such a lovely bunch of puppies Not much happening around here. Our two oldies aren’t doing so well these days. Sad to see them aging. But mostly they are happy and enjoying life. Lots of drugs!
