Re: Happy Fall

We've had unseasonably warm weather up until now. My husband & Emma have been going out pheasant hunting these last few weekends, and he said it has just been too warm for hunting. Well, he finally got his wish, and it was in the teens and low twenties the last 2 days, so they are both happy! In fac...

Just proves my theory that a smiling Brittany can make anyone feel better! Hurray for Pippa!

Re: Greetings from a new Brittany owner!

Yes, I agree with everyone about socialization-both with other dogs and all kinds of people, as well (wheelchairs, walkers, canes, hats, etc.) We enrolled both Maggie and Emma in puppy kindergarten classes. It was wonderful. The classes were small enough to not be overwhelming to the pups, but large...

Re: Greetings from a new Brittany owner!

Awww, she is adorable!!! It's been 10 years since we had a puppy. I remember several times I would be at work, put my hand in my pocket and find a handful of treats. Didn't go anywhere without treats in those days! :lol:

Re: Sammy is getting old

Oh yes, we have rugs. Started with an indoor/outdoor mat at the water bowl. Then we added a braided rug for his food bowl. My grandmother used to make braided rugs, so I have a bunch of them. Then we added a rug under the kitchen table because he stands under there when we eat. Then we added a rug i...

Re: Sammy is getting old

I have added a bit of water to his kibble a couple of times now, and it does seem to make it easier for him to eat. The only problem is when the kibble isn't dry, it tends to stick to the bowl, which makes it harder for him when he gets to the bottom! Just can't win. But one of us always stands by h...

Sammy is getting old

He turned 15 in July and is showing his age now. I treasure him, but it makes me sad to see him decline. He walks around ok; wobbles now and then, but mostly does all right. No steps, though. Every time he goes out, one of us needs to pick him up and carry him down the 2 steps from the kitchen into ...

Re: flooding

Her husband's grandparents lost their house all belongings (they live near Port Arthur.) :cry: So hard for anyone to go through, but especially for senior citizens. I try now and then to convince my husband to relocate somewhere with warmer weather-not Florida or Arizona, but just somewhere further...

Re: teeth chattering

Odd, indeed. Sam's teeth are chattering right now. He is downstairs in the living room all by himself, laying down behind the recliner. I really don't get it! :?

Re: teeth chattering

Yes, Sam does this, too! It's really weird! But with him, there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason as to when he does it. I asked the vet about it, but of course, he never does it at the vet. He does it sometimes when we're eating, which might indicate anticipation of getting a treat. But sometime...

Re: shadow dogs

...as I've said here before, he has a VERY loud bark...my husband says, we can't seem to find the volume switch...: LOL! That reminded me of Bill and Star when they were at the ABR picnic in MD a few years back. Star would bark real loud and Bill would say "Use your inside voice" and she would give...

Re: ABR Loss

What a terrible loss to her friends and family and everyone at ABR. I also never met Kat but always enjoyed her posts. Makes you really think about things-enjoy your life to the fullest and do what you really love because life is, indeed, too short.

Re: dogs hibernating

Common sense has never really been Emma's strong point. She's been going out on these 90+ degree days to harass the chipmunks. My husband went down our long driveway the other day on his tractor. I saw a brown blob on the driveway and thought it was dirt or mud that had come off the tractor. Emma st...

Re: Indoor Water

We have 2 water bowls inside. But outside, given a choice, Emma will ALWAYS drink water out of a mudhole rather than clean water out of a bowl :roll:
