    vicks vapour rub - for Bunnygirl - apply daily. at least.

    Chili doesn't work - the dog just learns to enjoy chilli.

    crap weather on the way Beloz. It's pissing down here and really cold. Well a lot colder than it has been for months. Me and my evil hound are hugging the heater.

    I've never locked my dogs outside. I leave my sliding door out the back open so they can come and go as they please whilst i'm out. & they still mope and carry on 'because they're home alone' honestly, they're never bloody happy unless they get to come with me!

    My dogs are outside, a lot. I don't feel guilty at all.

    My two are outside when I work. Since I live at home, when I am inside the house, they have no choice but to stay outside since mum wont let them inside. When I am in my room (in a shed, out the back) they can come and go as they please but they mostly choose to be outside. I do let them relax inside but sometimes they just pace and annoy me so I put them outside, where they clearly want to be. I do leave my door open for them to come and go some days but they mostly choose to stay outside. I hope to get a dog door to allow them to make their own choice but I can't always leave my door open for them, it's to cold for that now. They always sleep inside at night.

    Some dogs prefer being outside. Mine are a mix so I don't feel bad. I feel bad keeping mine inside when they are clearly trying to get outside.

    I don't force them to be outside, I give them a choice. While I'm in my room, I have a mixture of letting them be in/out of seeing what they want to do.

    I will always have dogs that enjoy being inside and outside as I do enjoy my alone time without the dogs so I like how my dogs are. So, my dogs will learn to like being outside by themselves but will also learn to love being inside. They will ALWAYS have the choice to sleep inside. I love my dogs being in at night. Personally, I do think my guys would like to be able to go outside randomly through the night so when the dog door is in, they will have that option to sleep/go inside and outside as they please at bed time/through the night. There has been nights were the dogs have wanted to be outside when I went to bed but I just can't leave them out since I know later on they'd want to come back in. I can't wait for the dog door.

    Mojo seems to disappear. Somtimes it takes me a while to notice. Much to the wifes disgust i open the sliding door and rescue him. She shuts the door behind him when he goes outside to drink. She's starting to have really bad 'dog hair' issues.

    Dosnt help Mojo any when her brother comments "i can smell dog in here". That was the icing on the cake for her. He's to poofy for my liking and i cant smell any bloody dog smell. He just didnt want Mojo going near him.

    Together Mojo and i will fight this little 'war' against the paranoid wife........as long as we dont both end up as outside animals.
