  1. ... the hard life of a working dog

  3. Marley has not started on my books .............. yet - (there's still time) if he does he will be lucky to escape with his skin - I regularly leave my herbal medicine books strewn about - and usually have around 4 or 5 open at any one time. In comparison to Lunar though he is an angel indoors - my main problem is his propensity to go after electrical wires. Believe me when I say I feel your pain and know how you feel. Our lawn was paved over for safety.

  4. Saw a memory foam dog bed in the sale bin and decided to buy it. It's only a one off though as someone bought it online and then returned to the store. The dogs are very interested in it! Ice has firmly staked his claim to it. But Bear is waiting for her turn.

  5. Brooke's finally getting a turn, lol. The problem with dog beds for Bear are that they are too far away from her people. We have reclining sofas and she will usually sleep underneath the foot rests when they are up. Sometimes she'll sleep on the sofa with you or if she wants to spread out she will sleep on the floor by the window which is directly in front of you, lol. Sent via the power of telepathy.

  9. Wow, so glad mine have not done anything like these! Smokey I trust as long as all paper/books are out of reach (she's like a rat, loves shredding paper!) But she can be left alone for hours uncrated in the house... Tsunami is a little mischievous devil though and will have to be content with crating until he learns some good behaviour skills...that does not include taking things apart or ripping them to pieces!

  10. Ouchies! Looks like our house when they were pups. Ice nibbled on all the woodwork and Bear ripped up carpets, mattresses, wallpaper and pillows.......and that's not even starting on the garden. The entire lawn was destroyed with craters everywhere and all the plants destroyed. Looked like a barren wasteland, completely unrecognisable from now. Sent via the power of telepathy.

  13. I don't know if there's benefits or not...never thought about it and my dogs do just fine with their bowls on the ground... all I know is I'd do a google search, not link to a store website with darn near every post I created.. but that's just me, and I'm in a bad mood this morning anyway because it's April and it's still freaking snowing.

  18. Lunar's contributions to our household decorations included trying to dig up the radiator pipes, pulling carpets from the wall and stairs, eating the plaster, stripping wallpaper, and of course the normal digging of holes. However one trick he did caused no damage but still cost us a new front door - he could open it. A temporary measure was to tape a cut plastic bottle over the latch so he could not open it and go for runs with his buddy Bernie - the neighbours used to go out and round them up for us luckily. We also had to get an external letterbox as Lunar would kindly open all the mail for us and take things apart to ensure there was nothing nasty in it. He also ate through our garden gates and dug up one of our cats from her resting place. We also got hardwood floors downstairs to stop the damage to carpets, new side gates etc. I eventually learned I could not leave him alone and retired.

  19. We've been lucky so far, just a couple of pairs of hubby's shoes because he will not put them away at night - however when we go to the shops together (rare occurrence and we are gone no longer than 15 mins) - Marley takes to unravelling my hallway runner carpet - its nearly 2ft shorter than it was before he arrived. My nightly routine is to unplug all leads and hide them (he has a morbid fascination with electrical leads), put covers on all the furniture and put everything higher than waist height that might be of interest (soon going to have to be higher than that). With Lunar I had problems with chewed chair legs, table legs when teething - but not with Marley ................... mind you all the legs have Vicks vapour rub on the underside - and he won't go near them (makes the house smell nice too). Lunar on the other hand caused around £3,500 worth of damage when I was working part-time - but stopped immediately I retired and at home all day. Later on I will try and dig out some piccies.

  21. that last statement you made is a bit strange as you do not see them in the wild with a collar or on a lead....

  24. I know what you mean. Mine has two beds and I have caught her sleeping on the stairs before.

  25. Lol. Bear's never liked dog beds before, that's the crazy thing about it. Think it must have been the novelty factor as currently the bed is free and she's still sleeping on the floor by the window. Sent via the power of telepathy.

  26. I think the problem you actually have is that he is allowed to pull (by your hubby) and then with you he is confused about it because the trainer told me with Huskies you need to be 100% consistent all the time I see it with Smokey...she pulls way worse than Tsunami, even though she is half his size! You wont believe the strengh that skinny little dog has in her! I doubt that she will even stop pulling for a choke chain or punishment (not that I'd use that!) She just is dead set on pulling anyone or everything... Maybe I'll take her to the trainer in the future and see if he has advice as I tried all techniques he showed me!

  29. Thanks mate Thanks Emma, it took a bit of work over quite a period of time, as Ronin used to bully and intimidate him. He was attacked by a German Shepherd as a young pup, so he always makes sure Shepherds know that he is not going to be intimidated - strangely this carried over to Thor who is a Swiss Shepherd. But the owner is great so I was able to work with her and the dogs to make their meetings fun
