The other half's new lurcher puppy just stole and ate a block of cheese, complete with plastic wrapping.

Apparently the next jobby came out pre-wrapped in the plastic.

Definitely now looking at buying a couple of puppies. Labs or spaniels. Anyone know of reputable sellers. Obviously been online but recommendations welcome. Ideally around Glasgow but wider could be considered. 

For Labradors give "Leadburn" or "Broadlaw" gundog kennels a look, old and young Billy Steel have about 80 years of breeding and working Labradors between them, they're based in Leadhills so not so far away, they may not have pups themselves but have some great stud dogs, health tested and great temperaments, I'm taking a bitch I have to young Billy's dog when she's in season again, they'll put you in touch with suitably bred bitches that they've lined.

For Springers and Cockers, try Buccleuch gundogs, based at Drumlanrig, David Lisset is one of the very best trainer and breeder in the country, agin, you'll get health tested pups with good, even trainable temperaments.

I am currently researching for Dog number 2.  It shall either be a Golden retriever. Lab, or Standard Poodle

 

This time it will be a working dog (assistance dog) for me.  But the time is not right, because it cannot be socialised properly for work in this environment

 

Fro is my fur baby, but support, and parent are in agreement an assistance dog will be great for me.  Just need to figure out the logistics, and how to fund the dog if it comes from Autism Dogs.

Mine was attacked yesterday by another dog. Thankfully she managed to get away. She was screaming for a good bit afterwards but escaped with a bit of blood on her nose & in her mouth and with a bloodshot eye.

Thanks. Keeping an eye on her eye but she is fine apart from that. We bumped into another couple of dogs soon after and she was terrified to go anywhere near them, which isn't like her as she is very sociable. The owners offered to go to a wee bit where they could have a play together and she was back to normal after a wee bit.

Maroon with a view

I've had both and like both. Cats are self sufficient but you can go on adventures with your dog. I think we have a closer bond with dogs because unlike cats, dog's didn't choose their domestication. They've been with us for the ride from day one. From guard dogs, to guide dogs and emotional support dogs they are the Swiss army knife of animals.

Hope your wee dog is ok. 

 

My wee guy was pounced on by a GSD at the start of lockdown and he is a bit uncertain of other dogs right now.  He was on his lead, the dog that pounced on him, SHOULD have been on a lead at all times (we live on private land, and the owners of the land have told the owners to keep him on a lead).  His only injuries came from the fact he got tangled up in my headphones, plus his lead and harness.  

 

But the owner of the GSD brought her other dog over offlead, had the GSD on the lead and checked on us.  Fro at that point was so submissive. 

 

Anyway he is 4 today and got spoilt. Pupcake and toys, since he couldn't  go to his favourite place (sitting outside at Costa)

German Shepard. 

Ah, I get it. I’ve always thought about the timeline of dogs owned by nutjobs. When I was a little kid it was alsatians (GSD), then it was Dobermans, then Rottweilers, then Staffies, followed by pit bulls. When I was a kid living in Wardieburn the usual thing was for people to let their dogs out in the morning and letting them roam free leading to packs of dogs roaming the streets. Maybe the worst thing I’ve seen in my life was seeing a pair of alsatians killing and ripping to bits a wee Scottie dog in front of the elderly lady that was walking it. I still think about how that wee wifie must have suffered.

I have seen greyhounds rip apart small dogs more than once. The first time it was a little yorkie some old woman had tied up outside a newsagents. Greyhounds are extremely dangerous to small dogs, they will kill them.

And even dogs around 35lbs or so will be attacked but not so easily killed which I have also seen. A small dog will have it's entire body crunched in the jaws in a single bite.

Feel your loss mate.   Lost mine two year ago and still not over it.  Can't even replace him as it still hurts.

Many years ago, I had a daft but fearless wee terrier - a Scotty / Cairn cross - who once decided that running from the park where my dad was walking him across a busy road to attack three greyhounds was an excellent idea. It really, really, wasn't.

 

An emergency trip to the vet saved his life but didn't make him any more sensible or streetwise. Years later, after he'd had to have all of his teeth removed, he'd still growl at other dogs in the street.

 

:facepalm:

 

However daft or mental they are, you do get very attached to them though.

Our little bast,  I mean light of our lives,  got out the house and was running about the street for 20 minutes,  his recall is, shall we say patchy, so he took full advantage of not being on his drop lead and ran rings round us...until he saw one of our neighbours and ran straight to him for cuddles.

 

Anyone want to buy a dog? Occasionally answers to Ziggy

Really sorry to hear your sad news about your pal. Hopefully in time you’ll be able to look back and remember the happy times you’ve enjoyed over the last 12 years

Slightly off topic but has anyone used the dog sitting service rover.com? We’re planning on being out a bit next weekend & I am concerned about our dog getting anxious and barking the place down. Is it legit and anyone used it?

Rover is the Uber taxi of the doggie world. Anyone can sign up and be available to look after your dog.

 

Just like taxi/Uber, some folks know what they are doing and act professionally, others are untrained idiots in it for a fast buck.

 

It really is a choice of potentially sacrificing quality to save some cash.

 

My sister used it, a couple of successfully visits to somebody and then they cancelled very last minute on a weekend evening for their dads 60th birthday or something ridiculous.

 

If you have the cash go with the pro's would be my advice, if not hopefully you get a good sitter on Rover
