  1. Visiting this section never gets any easier...rest in peace Lu

    Cheyenne

    I'm so sorry to hear that she's finally gone. This hits home because this is what it's all about for me, not the whole training malarky that some dogs never see the outside of, but sharing the real world, going places together. Those dogs shouldn't leave, it's too scary...but in the end, when they get tired, of course they need their peace, too. Good to know that she found it.
  3. I'm so sorry to hear this, I normally don't read the Health section so I didn't know. You two have been through a lot. At the moment, with autumn kicking in, it seems almost reality that this is coming for me too, that they're bound to rip me to shreds one day, but I still can hardly imagine what it's like. Without the boards I might not be able to face these topics at all. (((HUGS))) to you.
  4. Kyla broke her right upper P4 this spring (not sure how, she'd had it for a while when I found it), and it had to come out. I was terrified and sure that something (everything?) would go wrong with the anesthetic (after seeing them fail so completely with everything they'd done with my mum's cancer), but it went very well. They closed the wound with a laser. The vet, who's just taken over from my old one last winter, put something "homeopathic" on instead of antibiotics. No disrespect to believers but I'm not one. However, I do believe strongly in things healing by themselves, so I was willing to give it a try and it healed just fine. We just took it easy on sticks and tug games for a little while. Now I need to scrub the lonely two opposing teeth that get no action anymore. Brushing a dog's teeth, indeed, with a little toothbrush from the Other Side of dog culture . She doesn't like it but I just do it anyway, she'll survive.
  5. Whew, am I glad to hear that!!!! Now off you go and celebrate.
  6. I'd been hoping for some news by the morning . Sending mojo. I only ever lost Kessie for half an hour or so, but it was a horrible place to be in mentally. I can't imagine what it must be like to be there for days.
  7. Recreating the idiotic posture of a show dog being strung up in the typical show ring manner? Yech.
  8. I've seen a few clips on youtube and liked them (there was one of a BC contemplating an unguarded plate of cake that I definitely need to watch again). Some of the voices they've given to the dogs are extremely annoying, though!* *edit: just re-watched them, it's actually not as bad as I remembered...maybe I had it mixed up with something else.

    I am so sorry. He has a wonderful smile in the pictures.
  10. Would it help to separate the egg white and yolk, and give them to them in separate slurping sessions? Mine get fish oil, and whatever happens to be around as extras. Plus bits of pretty much everything that I eat. Maybe the weirdest thing they love are peanuts (whole ones, the ones that are still in the pod). They like cracking one open and eating the parts that fall out (small parts due to rough opening method).
  11. Knickers, honestly. It's the only thing that ever tempted Kessie. Never a bra, though. Kyla doesn't do it at all. This thread is hilarious though , almost makes me feel like I've missed out on something important with my non-chewing pair of lazyguts!
  12. It's an exclamation mark, when normal marking isn't enough . Actually, the way Kessie does it, it's a whole bunch of exclamation marks.
  13. Lots of mojo for Cheyenne! My heart aches for you, especially because I know what they mean, those true Companion dogs that have been everywhere with you.
  14. Oh, tons of stuff. One specific thing does come to mind - I regret all periods in which I was influenced by "dominance"-minded people. By now I'm convinced that most of that is utter b*ll*cks, at least in the way humans tend to apply it. Who cares about who eats first, as long as I can eat a piece of cake in the dogs' company without having to fear for it . I think there were times when, influenced by that mentality, I got angry with Kessie in ways that made no sense whatsoever. Kyla already had it much easier there, although she only arrived two years later. By now, we can even have our little hug fest when I come home to them. And yes, they'd calm down if I wanted them to. Thanks for that, Root Beer - I think it was you who pointed out that enthusiastic greetings are just normal dog behaviour. Wonder how I didn't sense that all along - duh. I think that was the last one of those "golden rules" that needed to be kicked out of my window.
