    Default Been a while

    Hi all. I haven't been round much lately. Just didn't feel overly social.

    We have been living with friends for the past 6 months. After a few false starts, we will finally get the keys to our new house today! I will feel very sorry for Banjo because she lives living here. She and the resident lab get on like a house on fire and the humans are also home more often than me. Plus, our new backyard is like a 10th of this one.

    So I'm considering fostering a pup sooner rather than later. Though I have to also consider the cat who will of course be thoroughly freaked out by the move.

    One thing I do look forward to - dog-wise - is that we have a good dog park close to our new home. I have never been a fan of them, but I have enjoyed going to this one when we went to check on the house. And I had noticed that Banjo had gotten very anti - social. She was still ok with dogs we met on walks when we could just keep walking, but growled at other dogs in most other situations. After only a few visits to the dog park, I'm already noticing an improvement.Though she does prefer small dogs to play with. A corgi and a couple of Italian greyhounds have been her favourites so far. Getting used to my friend's giant great dane pup will take some more time...

    On a sad note, the lab and Banjo killed a kangaroo a few weeks ago. It was the lab who initiated it, the kangaroo was already injured and in the river and if Banjo wouldn't have joined in, the lab would probably have been drowned. It's still a bit too traumatic to say more about it...

    I have a few questions about trick training I will post later and will probably have a lot more if we do get a foster pup soon. Now I'll try catch up on everyone else's news...

    Welcome back!!! So glad that you finally get to move into your new house!!!

    That's sad about the kangaroo but I wouldn't worry too much about it... unfortunately that's what dogs do. I took my 2 to the park a few weeks ago, they disappeared behind a hill for a minute and then appeared carrying a duck each. They thought they were the smartest dogs ever, bringing me presents, I was so upset and angry at them... but they didn't know any better (I was actually quite surprised that they were able to catch them)

    Welcome back Beloz and banjo!
    So glad you can now lay down roots. And that your next move will be your decision to make, not a landlords

    and the patter of tiny feet? oh my, cant wait. Pups are such fun. But for those of us who have had to potty train in winter midnight hours, wait till summer!
    Cat should of spat the dummy and picked it back up by then.
    Such grateful creatures during house moves, cats lol

    Hey! Glad to hear you have your own place coming up - nothing quite like your own space!

    Don't beat yourself up over the roo. Sad yes. But it was injured to begin with - and is lucky the dogs were ok, especially taking it on in the water!!

    I forgot to mention the roo Beloz.
    Its injured/dead by river. In nature what would happen if a carnivore predator came along?
    that's what happened. Something natural.
