    Hey I will post my 2 dogs in this thread and maybe my mums in another. Good luck.

    Name: Kiki
    Age: 3 yrs
    Sex: Female
    Verified question: What is your favourite toy?
    Questions: What's with chasing the horses? and the cat? knock it off :P Why would you roll in cow manure? and grease from the BBQ? please tell her its disgusting. Are you happy? Do you like our new addition? Do you enjoy training? Does all that "leadership" and "being the alpha" mean anything to you?

    And just let her know that she is the queen of this pack and always will be. And water won't kill her that she can go for swim anytime, and it really is more fun to stick around me while off lead then running away, I have good treats!! Tell her that she is my heart dog.


    Name: Dexter
    Age: 13 wks (approx)
    Sex: Male
    Verified question: Where do you love sleeping?
    Questions: Where did you come from? What can you remember from before you came to the shelter? Why are you so stubborn? Do you have bad dreams or good?

    Just tell him toilet training is very important and I'm trying very hard but he has to meet me halfway. Also he is fitting into the family much better and I'm proud of him.

    Photos: Siberian Husky is Kiki, Staffy x pup is Dexter. As I said good luck, Kiki doesn't really like strangers :S.

    This is how my reponse to TahSunny went. The cut and paste ate the formatting so forgive me if I left some out. She is completely ignoring the message about leaving food alone that she finds for herself at the park.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi TahsSunny

    Thanks for the responses - I will give you feedback as best I can, because for some of these things - I still don't know the answer...

    Can't argue with that. She loves everybody, dog and human...

    Verified questions:
    favourite playmates?
    As random as this is, I saw an image of geese/chickens... and I heard there names being said. (snip)
    I was expecting "Mango" - the kelpie x who looks like your dog, and "Jackson" the border Collie - both of whom she goes nuts to say hello when she sees them and always plays a good game of tag/chasey and bitey face... they're well matched.

    She did enjoy chasing some guinea fowl at my cousin's farm recently but I'd hardly call them playmates ie I think Frosty enjoyed it way more than the guinea fowl.

    I've been thinking about taking her herding and the next thing involves ducks - the upright running kind - so I guess they look like geese. She's seen these but never had the opportunity to try herding them.

    She has tried sheep with varying degrees of success/enthusiam ie gets very confused about what she's supposed to be doing. Message to dog - pulling wool off sheep ie biting - is frowned on. And if they're already going flat out, you can back off a bit.

    Questions you'd like to know:

    What is the go with the possums?
    I heard from Frosty that she finds Possums rather interesting, odd creatures that she's rather confused about. She's just attracted to them, there so different, this is what she thinks.

    What can I do to distract you that is more fun than chasing possums?
    Frosty laughed a little here, she said find something that is more interesting then the possums.
    Yes and what is that I'd like to know. Sometimes the rawhide beef chip will do it but not always.
    Quote:
    What is your breed ancestry?
    The only thing I was shown when I asked this was a short haired pointer and I after that she said 'I don't really know'.
    Lol. She doesn't act much like a pointer. I think the colouring is more from a variation of blue heeler but I (and AWL) could be wrong. She does act like a farm dog and is frequently attracted to them (kelpies, ACD and BC) over any other breed tho she does like German Short Haired pointers a lot. English pointers - can be a little too big and rough.
    Quote:

    And what is your favourite food?
    Do you feed her meat? because as soon as you asked this question I heard 'meat' and saw her eating some raw meat.
    I have fed her raw beef a couple of times, but probably not more than a teaspoon at a time. Usually I cook it into a casserole. She's pretty keen on hunting mice but won't eat them, live, freshly killed or stiff. So I guess beef might be the go, but it's a pretty messy treat. She wouldn't eat raw liver either. Not willing to try raw chicken again. She vomited the chicken wing I gave her - very ugly.

    And what got you so excited, about Mushroom?

    I had a hard time hearing this one but I felt it revolved around something being new revolved around Mushroom. This makes no sense to me but it might to you..
    Mushroom is a 30yo (ancient) 15 hand chestnut horse who invaded a bbq we had last weekend. And Frosty went nuts. She had previously ignored him when we went past, and then one time when all the other dogs were greeting Mushroom, Frosty had a go at swinging on Mushroom's tail. Mushroom is not bothered by nuts dogs at all and the more Frosty barked, the closer Mushroom got.
    Quote:
    I heard Frosty say 'We need to slow down at times' but I am not sure what that means, do you?.

    Also, Frosty showed me her getting confused about something you were trying to show her. Has this happened recently?.
    Probably, we do a lot of training and I'm not always as consistent as I should be in the way I use commands and sometimes I rush to the next level before we get the first thing right. Recall could be better. Hope that's not something she's confused about.
    Quote:
    And message for dog - please quit eating random food at the park - most of it makes you sick. Some of it could kill you.
    And second message - horses don't like dogs swinging on their tails.


    I did tell her this and explained why it's bad to do these things and I showed her what was the right thing to do, hopefully she will listen.
    She found a sausage at the oval this morning and ate it before I could do anything about it. I was less bothered by the acorn feast. So I guess she's got her own ideas about what is ok to eat and who gets a say in that.

    It will take some time, I will continue to talk to Frosty to let her know she needs to stop, just wanted to let you know.
