  1. It could be possible that she may have a little storm phobia. Our Nellie is afraid of storms, and can sense when they are coming, usually at least a day before they arrive, and will generally stay in her crate or her "den" in the living room and not really want to move. Nellie is 4 years old and we have had her for a year, so we are not sure when this behavior started. I know there is a front near us now and she wants to go out, but will not go out the dor without being coerced. It isn't even raining or even cloudy, but she just knows it will storm any minute
  2. Here is a link to the USBCHA Upcoming Trials Page. I haven't looked through lately for trials around KY, since I am in OH, but I know there is a few that are held around there. I think you are safest to check with the trial host about bringing your dog, but I have never been to a trial so I will be interested in seeing the repsonse to that question also. I would love to take Nellie to a trial. Hope this helps.
  3. We had our last BC on Sentinel and she seemed to do really well on them. She had a bad flea bite allergy and it seemed to do better than any of the topical treatments. We also have Nellie on Sentinel and she also seems to be doing well. Of course we live in a suburb and don't have to worry about ticks so much. Hope this helps.
  4. Nellie loves just about every vegetable we can find including carrots, broccoli, green beans, brussel sprouts. I really don't mind giving her the vegetables, probably better than most other human foods out there. Our prior BC loved pizza and would begin pacing if she thought she was not going to get the last piece and the box to chew on.
  5. IronHorse, I would also like to commend you on what you are doing in trying to help these dogs. I don't know if I would be able to be very calm around the type of situation you must have walked into. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your wife. I don't know where you are located, but I do know of a BC rescue that is located in Independence, MO (this is where we got Nellie last year). There name is MoKan BC Rescue. I think that they are probably around 2-3 hours away from Stockton. They may be able to help or point you in a direction of people that can help in this situation.
  6. We have been lucky with Nellie, all we have to do is have her work through a few tricks and then give her the pill, without anything on it and she will just take it. Our last BC no matter how you wrapped it, she would find a way to get the pill out and spit it at you.
  7. Nellie came from a rescue in MO. We started looking for puppys when our previous BC passed in June last year. But when I happened on the rescue website, there was just something about her picture that made feel that we needed to go get her. Didn't know if they would adopt to someone 12 hours away but everything turned out fine and we now have one of the most neurotic dogs I have ever had the pleasure of knowing!
  8. I think this is my ideal solution Forever Lawn. I have always joked that I would love to put in fake grass. Never have to cut it, run the sweeper on it from time to time and you're good to go lol. No more mud tracked in, grass always green and beautiful, instead of the mud hole I currently have. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be available in my area yet.
  9. Nellie knows sit, shake, come, "High Five", wave. She will potty on command. She is great with fetch of the frisbee but anywhere from bringing it back and sitting in front of us and reaching it up to dropping it 5 feet behind us and take off running for the next throw. In the snow she tends to come half way back and decide that she has to roll in the snow chewing her frisbee and when called she starts coming, drops the frisbee and comes over, tell her to "get the frisbee" she will walk over and pick it up "come" she drops it and comes over and this continues for way too long. This usuall
  10. I don't know if it is true or not, but our vet told us that pig ears were very high in cholesterol and we should limit the amount that we give to our dog.
