    Dog roaming, how to cure it?

    Why do you need to bring the dog to work with you?

    Asphalt Sealer

    Hi Guys, Has anyone experience of using asphalt sealer on a driveway? Driveway was laid about 6 or 7 years ago and is looking a little tired and faded, any recommendations on what asphalt sealer to use?

    Terrible decisions

    I've had to put down dogs I've had for 10 years plus and its hard, but what gets me over it is looking for a new dog, concentrate your energies on that.

    Dog eating too fast

    I noticed that my GSP bitch was vomiting her dry food. She would gulp down the nuts then walk off get sick and then I'ld see her eating the vomit which by the sound of the crunching wasn't chewed at all. She is just basically gulping down the dry nuts which can't be good for her. I wet the food this evening with boiling water and when it cooled I left her have it. I put it down, went to the back door and she was barking at me. She would normally be barking at me before meals looking for food, I was thinking why the hell is she barking at me shes just got her food. The bowl was empty, she had basically inhailed the whole bowl of food in under a %&$#ing second. On the plus side I didn't see her get sick. Basically - this can't be good for her. I feed her with my GWP bitch. Anyone had this before, how can I slow her down so that she doesn't do herself damage. Should I feed her separate to the other older dog.

    Do the decent thing and put the poor thing down and get your refund from the breeder. Its just a pup you'll get over it, you'll pick up another pup. Let it be a lesson to you, next time pick a healthy pup from the litter. And as for your girlfriend not talking to you, you can get rid of her and all.

    My GWP is very susceptible to mange she’s just after picking it up again before Christmas all under her back legs and under tail area. Have had her to the vets and she’s got injection, drops and steroids. She has had it before vet puts it down to being the runt of the litter and not having had enough antibodies passed from the mother to her. She’s 11 now, any ideas on what else I should be giving her to build up her immune system.

    Barking Dogs

    I put a petsafe citronella on my young dog every night other wise the ******* thing would have us and the neighbours awake half the night. I’ve used the electronic one too but I think the spray is better.

    German Shorthaired Pointer

    Well after burying my much beloved springer spaniel in September I have found a replacement.... a GSP. I had been looking out for a pup, but was toying with the idea of a more mature dog. A friend of mine had acquired a 12 month old GSP bitch from a relative who thought she was gunshy. Having experience of the German Wirehaired Pointer I suggested to him that they take a while to mature and she may need to be gradually introduced to the gun. A few weeks passed and was talking to my friend with the GSP, asking him how he was getting on with her. He was getting on great, except he had too many dogs and no time to run her, he asked me did I want to take her out for a run, to which I said yes. Anyway took the young dog for a run with my GWP, she worked well, still very green, but when we met a few pheasants she showed great interest and I managed to shoot a cock. It was the older dog that was doing all the work but I could see that the blood was up in the young bitch. On returning home I rang my friend and he suggested I hold onto her, him being swamped with work and sowing his wild oats. So now shes got her third new name...... ‘Pepper’ and is coming to it, (she never learned her last 2 names) and She has learned to sit on command. She’s a very keen, biddable bitch and we are bonding. I told the wife I was just minding her for a few weeks..... I don’t think so.... I will put up a better picture when I get a chance.
  11. My German Wirehaired Pointer Bitch is 11 years old I haven't noticed here coming into season in a long time. Could she be barron now. Was thinking of getting another dog to replace my springer bitch, who died a couple of months ago, would it be safe to get a dog at this stage?

    Bit of bad news today!

    It's amazing she always stood in the same spot in the run looking in the kitchen window directly at me, if I couldn't see her I call her to see what she was at. The view is not the same out the kitchen window anymore. I buried her in the back garden beside the run, with 3 puppies she lost out of her first and only litter about 6 years ago, wrapped up in some of my old t-shirts. Going to find it hard to replace this dog.

    Thanks for the replies unfortunately she had to be put to sleep today. She wasn't able to keep down any food from last night, had her outside in the garden and she was trying to vomit and go to the toilet and nothing was happening. Then her tummy swelled up and she began frothing at the mouth, so I took her to the vet. There was no point in dragging things out and she was put to sleep, fairly broken hearted. Thought I would still have a few years left in her, but that's life.

    Bit of bad news today!

    My poor springer bitch who will be 10 this month has been to the vets today, the news isn't good she has a large mass in her abdomen and a murmur in her heart. Only had her out retrieving tennis balls the other night to sharpen her up for the season. But she sudden downhill turn in the last few days. The vet has given her a few injections and I have some antibiotics to try her on for the week and see how she gets on over the week. Possible diagnosis at the moment are kidney infection, lungworm, diabeties but more than likely it's a cancerous tumour. Anyone have any experience of this?
