Bella is 15 months old  We've just moved from Devon to Norfolk, and were so proud when her new vet said "She's perfect! And so beautiful! Bella's going to be spayed on Tuesday (she has a little hernia) and we're concerned about the collar she'll have to wear. We've bought a comfy collar, but

Dog friendly holidays / Re: Lulu's trip to York
« Last post by Fawn on Today at 08:03:24 PM »
Beautiful photos  :love4:

Sounds like a great holiday, so many more places are dog friendly these day ;D

York is one of my favourite city, the first house I purchased was in York when I worked there for a few years.

Enid, this article is also highly interesting. Thank you. We wonder how known this procedure is over here;  we will have to talk with our vet about this too. And we understand we would need a specialist  - 'where' will be the question. For the moment we just 'block out' what our lovely Breagha might have to endure as it hurts us too much. - The next season will be in late October.
Love from the grateful 3 here
Dog friendly holidays / Lulu's trip to York
« Last post by mrbob on Today at 07:27:11 PM »
After having taken Lulu on lots of countryside trips thought we would treat her to a city break. Decided on York as its not far on the train for us and has always seemed dog friendly when we had visited in the past and we were not disappointed.
Lulu was welcomed everywhere we went as was spoilt in every bar and cafe we visited, invariably being served biscuits and a water bowl before our drinks arrived!
She had a great two days there and came home shattered, so if anyone is thinking of taking a doggy city break Lulu would heartily recommend a trip to York and will happily provide details of where she went to get spoilt rotten!

No not tried it.  Iíve always fed CSJ various ones over Hollieís life & she has always done well on it.  Itís an excellent price because you are not paying for marketing & fancy bags but itís a good quality food.

I canít say I remember anyone mentioning tails.

Here is a link which gives more info on keyhole spaying
In the text the vets say pyometra cannot occur if the ovaries have been removed but I think this is a case of some experts say one thing and others say differently. With the uterus still in place, albeit without progesterone cycles, the organ can still get infected and that is a pyometra.

Other than that point, I think it is an informative article and good to know that the procedure is more common in Europe than in the UK.

Enid, you are just wonderful taking time to explain and to advise.
Thank you so much. - Your post is most informative, however, it is also a bit daunting. You know we love our Breagha so much and just want to do whatever is best for her. This means the decision is not an easy one. - We certainly take your advice and will see how she is when the next season comes. One thing we'll definitely do is give her the Galastop sooner after her coming into season and not wait until the situation is as bad as it was the past two, three times (nursing herself). The key hole operation is also most interesting but also scary. 

At the moment we are digesting and weighing all the pros and cons with regard to spaying. We will later also have a talk with our vet here in whom we have confidence. The decision will have to be ours, which puts quite a burden on us.

Reading your post we feel very much "connected" - knowing all the dogs you mention, from Mama Breagha to Mhadaidh (so difficult to pronounce), 14-yr-old Jodie and Peggy Sue always carrying something in her mouth.
That far-fetched idea of getting a puppy from Skye more than 5 yrs. ago might have been crazy but it has most definitely been a blessing in so many ways.  Thank you for everything.
Love to all of you,
Breagha, Martin, Ruth

Hi All, Just wondered if anyone had tried the food from tails.com. Is it good quality or just re branded, generic rubbish? Seems like there are plenty of offers to entice however i'm yet to be convinced.

Itís never easy.

Hollie is Aegean Lady, because of our love of Greece - the sea & of course she is a lady :023

Just think of things you like & try & work it from there.
