    Default Are you a furry grandmother?

    Im a great believer in my dogs showing me some important life lessons. How to deal with grief? for eg.

    I am now aware, that another lesson in life, is being dished out. Having kids, who have dogs (before the babies come along).
    You have to step back.
    You have to give your opinion when it is asked, not before
    You are not allowed to take over, even though you can sort scenario's quicker
    The offspring are allowed to get away with murder, compared to yours, and its annoying
    my daughter's staffy got kicked by a horse, and lost its leg. She did the 12 hr wait to see if she made it, i was with her holding her hand

    See all these lessons im getting?
    anyone else in this scenario yet?

    Oh yes.
    Son went through the same dog/real kids disaster that I did.
    Wish he had talked to me before he got that dog. As it turned out dog was rehomed and lives a life of pure luxury. He luckily took my advice so subsequent pets were a couple of guinea pigs, hermit crabs and now 2 cats and tree frogs.

    As his wife now has a home day care kids business they are even more pleased they actually listened to me, lol.

    Oh, I don't interfere with their raising of their own kids or pets they get but they know they can use me as a sounding board if needed. I am happy with this as they are great parents, thank dog.

    My daughter and her husband went and got a puppy ( against advice) from an unknown breeder and paid a huge amount to have the pup flown over here.
    At 4 months the puppy had been poorly socialised to people and was very hard to train ( cute but ..)
    In the end they gave it to their next door neighbour who totally adored it and didn't mind its incredibly unsociable nature.
    Cost them a mint, now they have a rag doll cat and all is well.
    It was hard to watch the cycle but she is very caring towards animals and I was never worried about the animals welfare I must say.

    My daughter has a Pappillon /chihuahua mix which is a foster fail. Boo is 4 years old and weighs 3 kilos, her little paws together are smaller than one of Brian's toes. They have only met through the car window, she yaps like crazy when she sees him, otherwise she is a sweetie. My daughter also has a six year old son who is very dog savvy, but never alone with either dog.
    I buy treats for both my grand kids but try to keep out of the training, discipline side of things. Often have to bite my tongue though.

    Lol my Mum didn't offer advice to me when we were younger... maybe she should have! lol She adopted mine and my partners spur of the moment free to good home GSDxRotti pup who would have been maybe 16 weeks at the time...he is 8 years old this year! haha

    I am sure when we got Harley she was expecting the same to happen, lucky we were more responsible (even though still uneducated) when we got him.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    The times my kids have pulled the 'their your dogs mum' as a reason not to help out.
    Now its my turn to pull it.
