Re: Just pondering ....

Having 2 totally different Britt personalities makes you ponder.....Bailey (my little boy that passed away Jan. 2012) he would only eat until he was full. If there was kibble still in his dish he would just leave it. Lewis on the other hand would gobble his food down and race to Bailey's bowl becaus...

Re: Recall Natures Deli Chicken Jerky Dog Treats

There's a tv show called Marketplace on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) that just featured Chicken Jerky Dog Treats. I think most of the treats are manufactured in China. Check out the link to tv show "Marketplace" http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/episodes/2012/09/fighting-for-fido.html and the FDA...

How do I teach Lewis to stop PULLING on our walks!

Lewis pulls like crazy on our walks. I can't attach the leash to the collar because he pulls so much he actually chokes himself. I use a harness on him, which has lessened his pulling somewhat, But I'm sure if I were on roller blades I'd be flying all over the neighborhood. I can't use a "halty" on ...

Re: My Dad 3/18 update

Sending prayers your way. My mom who will be 90 this year is still kicking around. Her favorite activity is gambling and she still travels to Las Vegas at least 3 times a year. She's had colon cancer in '94, triple by-pass surgery, is diabetic, high blood pressure and has out lived my dad by 19 year...

Re: Lush Lawn = Dead Dog?

Here in the Greater Toronto area (Ontario, Canada) it is illegal to put harmful pesticides on your lawn. There are "green" products out there now that will "kill" those nasty weeds. Not as effective, but better for your lawn, as well as for humans and animals. You can also use concentrated vinegar t...

Is 5 years old too late to train to hunt?

My husband is an avid hunter, but mostly for large game animals. Since loosing Bailey we said we wouldn't get another Britt, but we started to talk about a Britt for hunting. We know we don't want another puppy. Love puppies, but those puppy years are crazy times. Can our 5 year old Lewis be taught ...

Re: How do I stop counter surfing

Hi Janet

Can you send the website for the mouse traps? I hope I can get them shipped to Canada. Luckily Lewis doesn't jump up on the counters. I don't think there is room for his whole body up there :D

How do I stop counter surfing

Lewis has turned his attention to counter surfing. We started to feed him canned food and he's gotten the empty cans a few times when we forget to throw them into the recycling box. He only did this once before when we first got him about 4 years ago. Lewis is larger than the standard for a Britt. W...

attacked on our walk in the park

On Monday my husband and I were out for a walk with Lewis. A man was walking his two labrador retrievers off leash (there is a posted sign in our park-leashes must be worn at all times in park). One lab came running up to us. He seemed ok at first. Then Lewis decided to poke his nose underneath the ...

Has anyone had experience with Pancreatitus

Today is the one week anniversary of the day my sweet little boy Bailey became ill. I think about Bailey everyday. I wonder if I could have done more to try and save him. I've searched the internet about Acute Pancreatitis and most info says that dogs present gastrointestinal upset to death. Why did...

I still can't figure out how to upload images using imageshack. There isn't a window that pops up with code that I can copy and paste. What am I doing wrong :(
