    C&B, Cleas is right, fasting for 24 hours is the usual recommendation any vet will make. Give their system a chance to settle and 'flush out' so to speak. As they are just drinking water and not having any food, you'll be amazed how much 24 hours can fix things!

    Ha ha, you got the look from Charlie and you have the guilts happening bad, you poor woman.

    The gorgeous girl is lying on the floor because she's as full as a hog. Lol.

    It's ok though, he already seems to be bouncing back to being his usual self (he's tormenting his sister as we speak).

    here it is

    thread about nothing in particular, and everything in general and maybe stuff arising from the Apology thread ( a bunch of different topics in there).

    I was wondering about the idea of a nettiquette basics for this forum, anyone had any more thoughts, ie things they'd like people who are new to forums to know.

    For me
    Bumping - every thread you post in - is moved to the top of the active threads lists. So if you post in one about a stolen dog - where the dog was found - a year a go, you're going to move it to the active lists and confuse people especially ones who don't read the whole thread and who haven't noticed the massive difference in posting dates between the second last post and yours.

    Bumping threads like this one is good. Because we should use it lots.

    This particular thread - nobody needs to read the whole of it, most topics don't go much more than 2 or 3 pages. But you will get a good idea about the local forum dwellers - the ones who post in here - if you do read all of it.

    It was getting a bit heated in that Apology thread a couple of days ago, so I unsubscribed.

    I do like this thread a lot. We just chat & have a general "brain dump" when we need it. I've been helped & supported by a lot of members via this thread.

    I agree GSDs4Ever

    And I really didn't like that several people indivually stoked the fire when it was going out, because they hadn't read the whole thread, they just posted as soon as they got fired up. They were trying to "stop" something that was already stopped. I wanted to slap them, but I don't think they realised they were doing the opposite of what they wanted by posting more in that thread.

    Now about the nettiquette thread

    Some forum communities really frown on the "me too" kinds of posts, but I've noticed that lots of people do it here so I was wondering if everybody likes it?

    Do some people find it annoying or is showing support is a good thing even though it takes a lot of download work, especially if the "me too" post quotes a page full of Photos (now that - I do hate - a gigantic quote with "me too" at the bottom). I would like the "me too" posts to be a little longer, ie add a short story about their own experience that is similar. That way you get to be both supportive and interesting.

    I don't have the fastest download speed here, and while I'm trying to get it fixed, it may not be possible given we have a particularily ancient and incompatible exchange here and Telstra is not too keen on doing anything about it.

    Time to take hound for afternoon perambulation - why I use that word I don't know, it's not like she understands what "walk" means either.

    Some people only want to put their "toe in the water" without talking about their own experiences, so they post "me too".

    Hey GSD
    Blue is lurving her treats!! It is normally hard for me to get her outside when I need to lock her in the garden as I am leaving the house but with the treats she runs out there!!
    Was also great to meet you & your lovely dogs too, they are gorgeous!!

    My foster Blue Heeler goes for a meet and greet tomorrow! So excited for her - she really is the sweetest thing and although I will miss her (as will Jethro!) I really hope this is her new family!

    On a different note - GSD -I am putting up your magnets and flyers at the show on Sunday so hopefully you will get some more business! Yay!

    Bewdy !!! Another happy owner & a happy pooch. You've made me very happy today.

    They're a bit "full on" my girls, but they're good souls with such lovely personalities. A friend who comes to pick up treats, sits on that bit of a step down between the sitting room & eating area to visit for a while. Tara & Spirit always stick their snouts down her T Shirt front & up her skirt, (a novelty as I don't wear them) with one on either side of her. She doesn't seem to mind though & always laughs, which then causes the girls to lick her face & ears ... which makes her laugh even more ... which gets them more excited .... and then Spirit is crawling all over her & starts biting her hair, as by this time, she's covered her face because of the incessant licking.
