LOL ... is this one of those situations a rolled up newspaper to your own head and your sons backside would be advisable ??
2 pups for 12 hours .....sounds like ya they had a heap of fun !!!
I had to jump their fence, but collected the 2 pups early hours again yesterday. Pups going nuts to see Nan jumping the fence to get them. Still my son slept through, so i left a note, saying im taking them.
Walked them the 2 k trip back to mine cross country. Upon return, all got given a drink, then an hour later, caught the bitch pup teething at the silk edge to bernie's blanket. So out came the bones. They all had one temporarily, but as per usual, within 30 mins, 3 dogs have zero bones, whilst the 2 bitches had all 5 between them.
Ive been up n out with them this morning, and the recall of Sherlock pup for me is wonderful, Harley completely ignores everything i say, but is glued to Sherlocks side, so easy enough to let her off leash as wont leave his side.
They are all collapsed on blankets now.
The pups have been great here, they visit and stop here during the day often, but have never had a sleep over. But all seems to of gone well. Nothing chewed.
I did slather denco rub over the legs of my dining chairs and all furniture corners. Clearly i forgot the silk edge to a blanket bed, as that's been nibbled and torn.
I have lots of photo's taken. But cant seem to upload them, ive forgotten its been so long.
When I used to feed horses who are usually best of buddies but not when it comes to food, when we put the hay out... I'd make about twice as many piles and then some as horses, at least two but ideally three horse lengths apart, so no one horse can guard all the hay. And even if they were smart enough to carry all the hay back into one pile (dogs might be but horses don't) - it's hard to shoo off the competition with a biscuit of hay in your mouth.
So if I was willing to feed bones unattended (I'm not - never mind the fights there's only one dog but she makes splinters and swallows them like shards of broken beer bottle...) - I'd make sure there were at least twice as many bones as dogs... Maybe more.
How many bones can a bitch defend at once?
Good work Bernie - giving the destructo dogs something else to do. You might even be able to find replacement couches on the kerbs outside apartment blocks... Everyone seemed to be moving house this weekend - there were hire box trucks and trailers going everywhere all weekend. Or a second hand furniture shop. There's not going to be much point getting nice new stuff until the baby is about 20 yo... or moved out.
Ive stopped taking the two pups now. Mum and babe at home, but mother visiting from overseas for 1 month, being scared of dogs, extended the staying with me for 4 weeks. they went back last weekend.
Im suprised at how fast, i adjusted to having 5 dogs. My house is empty with just the 3 again.
Nothing chewed here, but most furniture has denco rup regularly to prevent chewers. And exercise levels through the roof with 5 playing with each other.
this sunday, and my son and daughter in law around with babe. All my dogs are loving the new baby. Check in on him when crying, then come get me. So cute.
And that evening crying time of 5pm till around 8pm: dogs found that very interesting. Bernie kept bringing the newborn baby a sticks. Dropped a tennis ball on his head when i had babe on floor changing his nappy. As i put the baby down to sleep in pram, firstly emptying pram of a small forrest of twigs, sticks, tambark bits, balls. How thoughtful of bernie. Bless him.
then at 8pm as they get ready to go, neither pup wants to leave! With Sherlock pup distressed as mixed urge to stay/go with owners going on.
I think i need to be a less good doggy day carer.
