    Wow that video is a complete downer

    Take a look at Nekbhets 3rd photo. "THAT LOOK"- raises my pulse and lights me up. Horses for courses i guess.
    Of course pup will drive me nuts on days where im under the weather. and i long for a mastiff of some sort.

    It's difficult to find a puppy that's keen to work and has a decent "off switch".

    Fortunately they also sleep a lot.

    Other dogs can keep pups entertained, chuck them outside with a bone etc. Puppy pens in the house? Yeah no. The puppies will be spending most of the day outside at 6 weeks let alone 8-12 weeks. Dogs need fresh air and sunshine not tearing up your house. Inside the house is quiet time, outside is wreck-it-ralph lol

    Am I such a bad mum, that i always expect the older sibs to take care of the younguns fur AND non fur kind? Sure, that goes wrong occasionally: dogs coloured in green with felt tip colouring pens, dogs unable to walk, as they have dolls clothes on, a GSD dressed in superman outfit running down the road to greet me off a bus, and 18 month old badly babysat babe, covered in gloss paint along with the floor. Hey ho. It all comes out in the wash eventually.

    Oh the luxury of 2 mature dogs to babysit!
    And as long as you never go below 1 dog, this will always be the case. Phew!

    Deposit paid on pup. Now the waiting game.
    I have made a difficult decision, and gone with Nordenstamm Kennels in QLD, as that way, i will own the pup outright. Whereas Julie's litter was to remain in her name. And i can totally understand why a responsible breeder would want this. This is normal practice apparently. Just not normal for me.
    So the waiting game begins.
    Sire has arrived from Germany, and is courting the Dam nicely, hope he buys her a drink at least.
    Found a IPO club through Schutzhund Australia. In Eagle Heights. Been watching a lot of the trials from this year, fantastic stuff.
    Cant wait.

    We are going camping for long weekend today, with the dogs. Staying in a Aussie Wildlife Sanctuary. Such brilliant training opportunity for the dogs. There is a tame hand reared wombat called Mollie at the camp, that the dogs cannot work out what the hell she is? Very very funny to watch the greeting, and that moment on bernie's face, where he tries to decide should he hump it, bite it, round it up or what?

    Have a great w/e folks, i know i me n mine will. I'll try to upload some photos upon return.

    I am amazed that they let dogs stay. Most I know have a blanket ban on dogs because dogs (even on lead) can scare the crap out of the wildlife.

    Ah, that's for ordinary folks. Owner is a friend of ours, who simply said, take responsibility, if you say its ok, im trusting you. He's known me and my dogs for many years now. And always asks me to take his new pups for a few weeks, return trained please lol But as he breeds English Mastiff's, ive declined lol.
    And in about 20 camps, never an incident.

    My dogs have had a LOT of exposure to and training in and around wildlife, twice daily, they walk amoungst them, as my dogs live in a nature reserve day in, day out. Just not as much wildlife as the sanctuary.
    I am blessed to live in such a place. And being a pohm, who has been forced to live in high rise flats, i give thanks daily
