About me

crazy old woman who actually wants a reason to go for walks, hikes, and bike rides... to dote on a little one... and have a pal willing to jump in the car and go for a ride...

@rosamunde Is there no way for you to take them on your trip (with you)?

It's hard to leave your dog(s) in a boarding facility (and it can be expensive), but it might be the best option for your situation, given the specific issues. You just want the best for your pups. Totally understandable. I'm not close enough to offer assistance, but you might consider some other (potential) local resources:

  • Vetarinarians (may be willing to take them 'home' at night )
  • Professional Pet Sitters (pets stay home, sitters come in and out through the day, some even stay at your home while you are gone)
  • Breeder (contact your dogs breeder and see if they could assist you)
  • Friends (someone who is familiar with the dogs)

If you have any questions about training your leash chewing escape artist, or the dog aggressive female, please feel free to ask. We might not be able to give you a quick fix, but I'm certain that we can relate what our experiences have been in resolving similar behaviors.

Link works! I've heard of "Blue Healer's" before, but not "Red".... tell us more. Name? Story? Did you just adopt him, or have you had him since he was a pup?

Instead of rice, try barley.

hmmm.... I don't usually have barley in the pantry, but I'll give it a go.

Quick follow up: I made barley for the first time tonight... well, technically I made a Homemade Vegetable Barley Soup. The entire family chowed down and then doodle passed out for the night. 😉 I'm sure we will have Barley again (and I'm not just saying that because there's easily 4 servings left).

@Zande Thank you for the explanation. It certainly presents quite a lot of information to aid in such a decision.

A number of comments on this thread indicate that spaying is harmful later in life. Can anyone explain this?

  • What happens if you spay too soon?
  • What happens if you spay at an older age (say, 18 months)?

As I said, if I let you do it, I have to let others do it. I'm sorry... the rule is clear. I think the stuffed animals are cute though.

Diana, we seem to have a little bit of a language barrier.... What is your natural language?
