    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    She clearly read this! For the last two days I've been greeted with songs and toys too! Contrary creature πŸ™„

    So as not to derail another thread: does your dog need to bring you toys when you come in?

    My shepherd'y beastie doesn't even bother getting up when it's just me coming in. However if any of her favourite humans arrive, she has to bring them something - usually a soft toy or her treat ball, whilst singing a song of welcome. But they're not allowed to actually have it, just admire it.

    Unless you're planning on walking through gorse and brambles. That was not nice.

    Seconded. Ellie had her first jab last week and it's made a big difference already - she's definitely brighter and more comfortable.

    Ok, it’s got to be done! The nickname thread (including cats!)

    My poor beastie gets all sorts. She's officially Ellie, but gets called Bestest Dog, Snuggles, Bogdog, Stinkypants, Tiddles, and Ellie Welly Smelly Jelly.

    Dogs Disliking Specific Breeds

    There's clearly some sort of border collie vs GSD thing going on! My GSD x rottie takes great exception to border collies. She's not a fan of most dogs, to be honest, but border collies are in a league of their own. Partly because she had one launch at her when she was a lot younger. Huskys...

    Anyone have a lurcher shaped hole in their life..? Pic added

    I can't help with a home, I don't think my current girl would appreciate another, but would be very happy to help with transport if needed. I'm based on the edge of Sussex.

    Yep, I've had this one too. Apparently I should let her off and then it will all be fine. The mind boggles.

    Can I nominate the one I met in the park this afternoon? The one with the baby dachshund that had no lead or collar? The one who made no effort to stop it running up to my on lead gsd x, despite me asking? I pointed out that my dog wasn't friendly - apparently my dog grumbling and our hasty...

    Today’s quiz (for those of you with nothing better to do) πŸ™ƒ

    Thinking about it, socks have to be right foot first, but shoes can be left or right

    Today’s quiz (for those of you with nothing better to do) πŸ™ƒ

    Definitely trousers first. The one time I forgot this I was outside and halfway to the car before I wondered why it felt breezy round my legs! Had socks and shoes on, but no trousers. But to answer the question...socks, right one first. shoes only go on as I leave the house.

    What’s the cheekiest thing your horse does?

    My lad is, in a lot of ways, an angel. He has free access to his stable... I can leave rugs hanging up, lotions and potions on the side and he wouldn't dream of touching them. But when I was in there putting up some new tie rings I discovered he has a thing for power tools. And hammers. I...

    Such a cute snoot 😊 I have no greyhound experience, but would suggest having a look at Millies Wolfheart. They have a wide range of mixes and are really helpful for a chat. It's been a great help for my fussy baggage of a dog - she struggled to keep weight on and has a rather sensitive tummy...

    Getting a Dog - where to start?

    I used this to fix the low patches on the fence in my rented property to keep my dog in. It's mesh panels that screw onto the posts. I had it about 1.5m high. I'm not...

    I rode my pony in a bareback pad yesterday. First time with him (and by the look on his face, possibly a first for him too!). He was an absolute angel 😍

    Clothing question - denim riding tights / trousers?

    Getting a horse to take ButeπŸ€•

    I have a similarly fussy beast who has just done five days of bute and antibiotics. Turns out the magic combination for him is soaked grass nuts, apple sauce and custard. I think it's enough sugar to counter the bitterness.

    Help! Hoover dryer doesnt dry.

    I seem to mostly get this with towels. I quite like it when they feel a bit crispy :) OP, I think I have the same dryer as you. It's about 18 months old and it's absolutely dreadful. I can't even find a program that will consistently get things dry - they all seem to want a break after a...

    Good shampoo recommendation? 🀒

    After a similar incident recently, I found Animology Fox Poo shampoo to be very effective. (it wasn't fox poo. It was far, far worse 🀒)

    What does your dog do

    Mine mostly sleeps, but gets up every time I go to make a cuppa. She's very quick to remind me that it's time for a lunch break or for me to stop working. She's also spending a fair bit of time supervising the neighbours....
