    I am infertile. Something I struggle with daily.

    My animals, they are my lifeline. My oxygen and some days I think they are the only thing that keeps me sane.

    However, one of the first things I learnt when I was going through training with them was that their needs as dogs must come first. So that means at times I have to be the tough guy. I dont pat them as soon as I come home, I always eat before them, they arent allowed to randomly bark at people, they have to walk in the heel position, I have to go up and down and in and out doors before them. These are their needs, which I will follow because I love them and loving something is about accepting what they are.

    They are spoilt, they have days beds, kennels and crates to sleep in. They are lavished with love adn time and I buy them presents, like at christmas Sass got a new ball for the river because it bounces on water and is very fun to chase. I make their food, I combione the Barf diet with the all raw meat diet and add in a tiny bit of supercoat kibble. I spend a couple of hours every couple of days cooking up rice, vegies and gravy for them and I spend time bagging chicken necks and chicken breast into snap locks so I can organise their meals.

    I dont dress them up in weird clothes, I dont paint their nails and I know they arent human and I make sure I tend to their basic needs. But people can stick it in their ear if they want to tell me that they arent my babies. They are, every single one of them. They dont have anyone else but me to care for them , they are domesticated not wild and that means they crave humans. And Ill always love them as I do now.

    BTW, Staffies are awesome.

    I totally agree with this post. You treat your dogs with love and RESPECT, I think this is the biggest thing that I disagree with when people dress their dogs up every day. How is a pup suppose to play and be a pup if it is restricted by it's clothes that it is wearing.

    People can love and have their dogs as part of their families without it becoming a irrational quest to turn the dog into a child.

    I can't give Dora too much variety because it causes her to have waaaay too much gas. I get how she can become bored with eating the same thing every day, three tiems a day, so I sometimes soak her kibble in chicken stock, and sometimes add some canned dog food to her kibble. She might get some raw meat or cooked chicken once every two days, but thats it. If I give her anything different, we wont be able to stay in one room with her

    LOL, sass is a farter as well. Its very gross.

    She does really well on the BARF and raw diet. Much better than on packaged foods. Its not alot of variety. Feeding goes like this:

    Every second morning: Off cuts from the butcher.

    Every second night: 1/4 cup of kibble + chicken necks + chicken breast + cottage cheese

    Every other night: Rice, peas and gravy with 1/8 cup of kibble.

    Every other morning they dont have anything. They just have a small amount more at dinner time.

    There is a huge difference between loving your babies and putting them in separate CRIBS...

    See, I find this very disturbing:

    Hi all. I have a 6 month old female Morkie (Lienkie) and can not for the life of me get her used to putting on something nice like a dress or coat for winter. When i come near her with it or when I'm just showing it to her she runs away and hides. lol. When i tie her hair back out of her eyes she manage to get the elastics out to. She rubs her head agains the floor, carpet or just trying to get it out with her paws. One two three and it is out. any suggestions????

    Response:

    Just keeping trying shell give in eventually it's just somthing they have to get used too Kingston hated his boots for the first 3 weeks and now he's coming around lol

    This, IMO is animal cruelty. This is what I mean by 'too far'

    Someone earlier mentioned sarcastically how they feel about evil shoots? Well..

    I really don't like vaccines anyways, but I had to take Dora in for her last round of puppy shots, and I had Missy get her 1 year booster yesterday as well. They were both fine throughout the day yesterday, but come night time Missy started to shake and just seem uncomfortable and not quite herself. Well today, she's no better. She is shaking and doesn't want to be held. She also won't lay on any of her beds. She is laying on the floor which she NEVER does. I called my vet, she won't give her anything for pain because Missy is so small (4 lbs), she doesn't want to put anything more into her system. She didn't ask to see her today, just says if she's not better by tomorrow to bring her in. The one good thing, Missy did just eat her breakfast. Her head is up, ears are up. She just seems sad, uncomfortable and she's shaking. Dora is fine. I almost wish that I had listened to my instincts and not had her vaccinated. My girls feet do not come in contact with the outside ground anyways. Thanks for listening. I am just so worried. Missy is my heart, and I feel like crying.

    Just because I know someone will ask...this is what was in the combo shot my girls got yesterday...

    Parainfluenza
    CAV2-Hepatitis
    Coronavirus
    Parvovirus
    Distemper

    They have NEVER had a rabies shot, and never will. I am so thankful that it isn't required by law in my area.


    I am so freaked out...I think you may be right about not going back Netty...
