Thread: Hi from Penny and Mr Jones

  1. #1

    Default Hi from Penny and Mr Jones

    Penny & Jonsey 002.jpgPenny & Jonsey 001.jpg

    Hi to the Forum form Mr Jones (the black one) and Penny (or Miss P [actually Miss Pennefather but thats a mouthfull too hard to spit out at the park]), my wife and I.

    I hope to understand the dogs a bit better through the forum, well Jonesy actually. Penny can be read like a book.

    Jonsey (or sometimes Goosey-don't need a long neck to be a goose) and I have a bit of a power struggle at times. I find it a bit charming that he sees himself as top dog. The actual fallout from his belief is yet to be realised. I don't think he will ever be aggressive, just continue to be selective in his responses.

    Anyway, I look forward to learning from your experiences and making our two Labs even more precious to my wife and I.

    The two pics are of Jonsey and P at the park waiting for me to throw a ball. Probably the most important activity of the day!

    Cheers

    Hi 'Jonsey & Penny' and to the forum !

    They are two very good looking pups and I suspect that Jonsey's selective hearing could be classed as a typical male trait !

    Yes, this forum is great and heaps of useful information can be found and gained by being a part of it !!!!!!!

    By the way - how old are the two pups ? Have you seen this on the forum - http://www.dogforum.com.au/puppy-dis...-calendar.html Always a good place to start !

    Hi Jonsey & Penny,

    I have only ever owned GSPs - also gun dogs - so - Jonsey now should 'have a brain' by now - 4 years old - whereas Penny - welcome to the 'teenage time' !!!!!!

    So a few more websites to look at are:

    K9 Pro The K9 Professionals; Online Dog Shop

    and

    kikopup - YouTube

    and

    Patricia McConnell PH.D. | McConnell Publishing Inc.

    I can remember very clearly phoning the breeder of one of my pups - also a boy - and asked when the brain would arrive - when he reached 3 years old !!!!!!! All the breeder could do was laugh !!!!!

    Thanks all.

    They are both great in their own ways.

    We had a Golden Retriever (many moons ago when I was at home with mum and dad) who missed the brain mail until she was 8 years old but what a dog. For an 18 yo boy/man/pest she was the best companion ever. We went everywhere together, best friend, the lot.

    Mr Jones is evolving into a great Lab - a bit lazy, loves a sunny spot, bit of tucker, walks, swims, the lot.

    Penny cant stand not being involved in activities - cooking, gardening, renovations - has to be there. She's really smoochy too. Our Pretty Penny.

    Both are terrific gardeners!

    My wife and I enjoy every second with them.
