Welcome to all Dog lovers & generally Canine minded Folk. I have started this to enable a Thread to be used-in the Pet section with a title 'I love Dogs' so there will be no problems with attracting the right Posters, and the 'wrong Posters' give it a swerverCool. I am mainly a working Dog Lover, I have had-J/Russells, Retrievers, Lurchers. Currently have 2 White Cockapoo's. Mum & Daughter. Not my kind of Dogs(at first) the OH fell in love with the Breed a year after losing the Retriever. Now I couldn't imagine life without them. You either love Dogs or don't, if you do then life without them really is empty. I feel for the none Dog Folk, not knowing the joys of owning Dogs. But I'm not stupid enough to believe just because I love em everyone should. So if you would like to talk Canine, please be my guestSmile

I love working breeds. They show great intelligence, loyalty and a natural aptitude to work with humans.  Other people prefer other breeds and that's the beauty of dog ownership.  What to my mind is important is that the dog, any dog is loved and respected for being just that- a dog.--- Not a human substitute.


Cheers.....................K  smile

Some folk see them as Human substitutes K, they get affection & a deep joy from the mindset they have. I will never decry their need for doing that nor for their deep love of those Dogs. They choose to do it, & it has nothing to do with anyone else. Choice is everything.

Sorry--Can't agree with you there R .  Dressing any dog up in frilly dresses and wheeling it about in a pram is far removed from a dog being a dog. IMO--  But if that's what you like to do, it's your choice.   

Fortunately most people love and enjoy their dog for what it is -- A fantastic living breathing dog. 


Cheers..............K .

Have to say, you know some strange people K wink

Frilly dresses & a pram indeed?? Hope you're not talking about a rotty?

Personally, I'd rather replace some humans I've come across with a dog!!

All is not yet lost!

Rochelle provided this update yesterday in the "New Website" discussion:

We’ve also been having a few issues migrating all the threads and stories from the last website to the new, that’s why you may see that some posts are missing, or some comments are missing from the threads – IT are looking into this and the posts will be recovered in due course.

Just brought our 3 year old Labradoodle back home from 8 days in hospital. Her lymphoma has come back with a vengeance only 2 treatments from the end of her treatment. She had been on deaths door. Not sure how long we will have her for and have been distraught. Just keeping everything crossed for her.

We've all shared your situation Kerry, & all are sharing your pain. It's the one given, most of the Pups that come into our lives, win our hearts & become family will leave us before we want them to or are prepared for their leaving. You will make the decision to say goodbye when it's best for your Labradoodle. I just hope it's not soon. You have my best wishes & thoughts.
