    Do you give nicknames to your dogs??

    Laska is Rat Face or Poop Doggy Dog.

    Yellow lead?

    Laska has a yellow lead with 'nervous ' printed in black letters, gets totally ignored by the she won't be nervous of meeee brigade. My old dog went deaf and wore a tabard saying I'm deaf' which resulted in people talking to me very slowly with exaggerated mouth movements. They were a tad...

    "some dogs just don't speak dog"

    My little dog hasn't a clue how to behave or react around other dogs. She will cringe and wee and then snap like a crocodile, she does not speak dog for sure! She's another who clearly missed out on the puppy play.

    Giving a dog bute

    I met a young woman with a Leonberger, as she knew I had a mini shet she was asking how much bute i would give a mini as she was trying to work out the dose for her dog! Even though the dog at 15 .months was considerably bigger than my shet i said I did not think dogs should be given bute...

    Horse eating ragwort

    Maybe get the horse on liver aid to minimise damage, feedmark sell it.

    Anyone do horse agility?

    For the arch i used blue pipe, don't know if it's gas or water and stuck the ends in traffic cones. For the curtain i used push fit water pipes shoved into patio umbrella things filled with water. All stuff can be sourced from diy shops or charity shops really cheaply. It's great fun, my mini...

    Should have gone to specsavers!

    Ha Ha, she doesn't care, I did a good job on her face so she looks well cute. Fortunately she is white so the attack of the scissor hands kind of blends unless up close then it becomes dire. :)

    Should have gone to specsavers!

    Laska looked like an exploded mattress and a very dirty one at that! I decided to clip her, I can usually make a good job of her but I was forgotten that my right hand has lousy grip and lots of pain at the moment. How I could forget in the blink of an eye something that is giving me endless...

    Fear of wind?

    Yup! Laska is very scared of the wind but the thundershirt really does help even with creaking trees that used send her hysterical!

    Dog boots!

    We have snow, ice and of course grit, Laska has very sensitive feet and even though I use paw wax she can still have problems which leads to her holding up various paws and shrieking like a banshee. Can anyone recommend waterproof boots that will stay on tiny little feet?

    What sort of dog is that

    Radar my GS x Spaniel looked like a black shepard, I would tell people he was a Palindrome, surprising how many nodded wisely!

    Very odd behaviour

    Her head size is the problem with a flat collar, it just comes off. She has a yellow 'nervous' lead which people seem to regard as a challenge kind of insisting 'she won't be frightened of me'. I have had to be quite rude at times to fend pushy people off her.

    Very odd behaviour

    So sorry I haven't responded to your post Skinnydipper, things have been going pear shaped with my horse and my brain stopped. Your post made a lot of sense but even more of a problem now is that Laska was jumped on by a St Bernard puppy the size of a water buffalo with owners who had nil...
