Put your fuckin’ hands in the air!!!
Dog disguised as cock n balls
Been to the vets for injections and stuff today. She was fine. Dog don't care.
The only bit she didn't like was the cold on the 5 minute carry to the vets.
The sleeping arrangement is still going well, now. Bed at 10 or 11. She has one wee in the night on her pad, and goes out for a poo at about 6.30 when the Mrs gets up. She has pretty much stopped crying at night, other than the occasional 2 mins of yaps (probably when a cat or fox walks past the kitchen door.)
Was brilliant. She still has the occasional chew at the radiator. But it's really made a difference.
Here she is helping in the garden:
You can get a bitter apple spray online to spray on any furniture that she chews at to make it taste unpleasant. Has mostly solved our mutt chewing the sofa and the skirting boards.
ETA - this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Grannicks-...eywords=grannicks+bitter+apple+spray+for+dogs
I have some. It work really well. But it doesn't seem to survive on a hot radiator.
Dogs are fucking great.
I actually can’t believe I waited 38 years for this!
i am glad we have a girl, tho.
I just wouldn’t want to use Biscuit as a pillow if it meant her dogcock rubbing against my ear.
Bellyrubs feel somehow cleaner, too.
Yeah the cock thing can be a bit disturbing. He looks much nicer without his balls too
awwwww lookit lookit the effect that gravity has on her jowls Brilliant Biscuit
Oscar was attacked in the park on Tuesday at around 9pm. A huge mastiff was off her lead and decided to really have a go at him after they sniffed each other. I managed to get her off him by grabbing her by the back legs and dragging her off. The owner was 20m away and didn't even attempt to control their dog.
We didn't think she had broken his skin, though he was covered in slobber, but when we got home we found a small puncture under his eye. Washed with Hibiscrub followed by a short visit to the vet the next day. No lasting damage done, though he was grumpy for a couple of days.
On a happier note, this is Oscar viciously attacking me at lunchtime (okay, so he was just yawning).
Makes me angry Fucking irresponsible owners
Poor old Oscar Get well soon
I hope it doesn't knock his confidence, he seems to be settling in so well.
That was liked for yawning picture, not the attack.
Apart from working full time and not having a big enough house, other irresponsible owners is a thing that puts me off getting a dog actually.
Olli is 12 this year, he is such an outstanding dog. Very well behaved and gentle, he is pretty vocal when he needs to be.
He never really comes up for a fuss, but the last two weeks he has not been very well.
We worry about him but the vet says it’s his age. This is the first time for ages that he has come and lay on the sofa by my side. It was a nice twenty minutes, before he decided to go and bark at the recycling crew.
Barni just assumes his regular spot on the back of the sofa!
Known as 'the Travolta' round ours.
Desensitisation - anyone done it? I have mentioned the sheepdogs insane behaviour around anything with wheels...but today, I had a horrible experience. Just emerging from the graveyard, I was about to put her lead on when she absolutely bolted across the road, fleeing around the back of the garages and making her way home...because a woman was approaching with a rumbling suitcase on wheels. In short, what started out as a general anxiety regarding lorries, buses,ambulances, has escalated into fearing bicycles (especially with trailors), pushchairs...I am waiting for snivelling behind my legs as soon as a skateboard hoves into view. This must, I think, be dealt with since she is at her most anxious at the point of peak danger - ie.around roads...and I now feel that I cannot allow grand-daughter to skip ahead with Hazel (the dog) on a lead if there is a chance she will bolt in terror. Considering sedation and lots of walks around lorry parks and bus stations...but I am perplexed as this (behavioural stuff ) is a first for me - never had to do more than basic training (repetition and praise)...but I am not inclined to do nothing as Hazel's anxiety is obviously increasing. Also, no money to consult with animal behaviourists or owt like that so it is strictly DIY.
Also, Hazel is not even slightly motivated by food or treats - she has always been biddable and keen to please, but I have no hope that positive reinforcement through treats will have any effect whatsoever.
not a snow fan
Lily wondered why she kept running into things...
Is dog on chair.
Edit: + dog in snow.
Dog in snow took some convincing.
What of it?
(Watching fat old Labradogs hammering through the waves.)
She's very pretty and a beautiful colour.
Friday and Saturday Giz pissed on the floor while I was out (I never leave him too long and he always gets a walk immediately before and after). Sunday he vomited all over the place while I was out of the room for a minute. This morning he's pissed again while I was out.
He's been off his food since Saturday and I've not seen him drink any water. He might be drinking at night or while I'm out, of course but the piss I cleaned up today was very yellow and kind of less watery than it should be iyswim (sorry, tmi).
Would taking him to the vet be overreacting?
How old is he?
No, best get him checked, if he's getting dehydrated it can affect them quickly.
Nearly ten. I did initially think it might be an age related incontinence thing (have noticed a tiny damp patch where he's been lying occasionally and he sometimes smells a bit) but then he stopped eating.
