  1. my dogs for the last few years have all been fed raw, other than being a little fussy the first few weeks they change in health was amazing They smell less coats are thick and healthy they no longer have the random upset tummy runs. They have lots of energy infact seem to have more and can be active for longer without needing a rest. Point of fact most of teh books vets learn about diet at school are NOT produced by peer reviewed papers but are printed and supplied by the pet food makers wolves in zoo's are not fed dog kibble but are still fed raw meat and bones, t
  2. Didnt some one her once say there house was broken into and that they found the husky in the bedroom with a pile of treat packets that had been given tp them so the bad guy could loot the house for the good stuff

  4. what ever they will sleep on, some dogs will sleep on anything others refuse to use a bed and just crash on the floor also huskys for some reason seem to enjoy chewing beds up
  5. the risk from cancer is NOT an instant thing it will take years to develop, wait until he has sopped growing at a year to 18 months of age, also just because he only has one today does not mean he will not have both down in 6 months time. messing with hormone production os not healthy infact as your human doctor about it, as tbh vets lie thier pants off about the so called health benefits of fixing if a human is desexed they are put on a strict diet of medications to prevent problems, vets just lop bits off and ignore the issues that stem from that, infact it earns them i
  6. My husky was on a Raw Food diet, he loved his food but when we changed over from dry food to raw for the first few weeks he did kind of react funny to plain chicken But after a month or so he was used to itand loved it. My Malinois was put on raw food from his first meal and has never switched and looks great If you go the raw food diet you will just have to find a good dealer for it, the thing i find is with most dry and wet pet food brands about 70% of what you feed comes back out with Raw food diet I would guess like only 30% come back out.
  7. Hope rescue is a pet chairty that I support they have been hit hard by Corona and worse in the recent flooding in Wales the shop they run to raise funds was destroyed They are still having to look after dogs in the kennels and face the running costs of the kennels if they can not get some help they will have to close and rehome the dogs they currently have So can people try to help them and small charitys in thier own area who are all suffering at this time from not being able to raise funds Even some zoo's are now saying to lower costs and keep animals fed they may have
  8. Can not tell you, you will have to be surprised as they will change colour depending on genetic traits from her breeding history give her a few months and they will be the colour they will be.

  13. Actor Kirk Douglas, a fixture of cinema for six decades, has died aged 103. The stage and screen actor was well-known for a range of roles, including the 1960 classic Spartacus, in which he played the titular character. Born in New York in 1916, he rose to prominence during Hollywood's "golden age", earning his first Oscar nomination for the 1949 boxing story Champion. He was also the father of Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas. Michael said in a statement: "It is with tremendous sadness that my brothers and I announce that Kirk Douglas left us today." "To the world,

  15. normal looking puppies can take months to decide on a true color at the pups age they are still developing so wouldnt worry until about 6 months next time you take pup in for vacinations get vet to have a quick look if you are really worried
  16. my dogs used to be fed on a dry food, they did lots of soft poops that filled two or three bags had stinky gassy butts bad breath and dirty stained teeth I then switched to raw food diet they have great coats do tiny poops that are like stones and do not smell much, i would guess that they digest 80% of what goes into them on the dry food i would guess most of what went in came back out. the farts do not really smell any more, no stinky breath teeth are clean I got a puppy last year and he has been fed raw from birth and is doing great

  18. I would leave it alone unless it becomes a problem, in all the years i have had dogs some have developed them only time they became a serious problem was after we had one removed. The dogs that were left alopne just had one or maybe two, the dogs that have them removed suddenly developed lots and lots and in some cases they were in places that involved serious surgery later It may be better now but i would leave it alone as much as you can for the most part it is just a bubble filled with fat cells, if they are loose and move its nothing to worry about. Probkem comes when they

    Rip Louie

    Louie came to me as a rehome, was Uncle to most of the pups around me as he had such a gentle and tollaraunt boy.
