    Dog shows

    Yes I love going to dog shows, we have friends who show there's and we are hoping to show our second Bullmastiff for the first time, so its going to be all new to us :)
  2. Bullmastiffs do have long coats, it is rare and also genetic as I found this pic while doing a search. [img]http://www.mabemiss.0catch.com/images/willy.jpg[/img]

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/1003/shannon_c/Memorial/1168134307_P1010475.jpg?t=1168341052[/img] Sadly we lost our very special boy Charlie from cancer, he was taken away from us at the end of November 2006 this photo of him was taken in the summer last year! It was a very difficult decision to let you go but knew we were doing the right thing, and seeing your tail wagging made it even harder for us...those sweet expressions and licks you gave when whenever we were feeling sad but you always seemed to lift our spirits and was always gentle with everyone you met, even your lil friend who loves you so much, spending those times together playing with you and lying next to you on your bed. How hard life is now without you around, but you are free from pain now running free over Rainbow Bridge with Shandy, Merlin and Zak your friends R.I.P My sweet boy, until we meet again.
  4. So sorry to hear that, wow I remember you talking about your sweet lil dogs, and I didn't realise how big Sharpei's were.
  5. [QUOTE=Morgan'sMom;232412] Oddly once she's in there she's fine AS LONG as MTV is on! How funny is that?! I think perhaps she's just going through a teenager phase! :)[/QUOTE] Yes maybe lol they do seem to pick up on our habits don't they, well at least she is going back in there thats a good start :) Crate training is a wonderful idea, as I have just started using it for my puppy and she loves it in there :) Pleased everything is going so well now!
  6. Mouse, I am so pleased your friend got his Bullmastiff spayed, what a clever girl :)
  7. [QUOTE=Morgan'sMom;232392]Hello! I have a 2 year old Chocolate lab who is all of a sudden terrified of her crate, which she normally loves. She's been going into her crate voluntarily everyday for 2 years, but last week all of a sudden she won't go in. My husband & I can't think of any trama/reason that caused this but it's stressing all of us out because she needs to be in there while we're at work. Any help/advise anyone can give me to rectify this & get her back to normal would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Morgan's Mom[/QUOTE] Hi Morgan'sMom. Could it be that you have recently moved her crate to a different place or room, once dogs are used to a certain spot they aren't usually happy about being moved, but if this isn't the case you could try placing her food inside her crate or a favourite toy and encourage her in, talking gently to her.....letting her know its safe to enter praising her all the time. However patience is required and it may take some time, not knowing what caused her fear in the first place, its not going to be easy. Good Luck :)
  8. Can anyone tell me if the [img] format is still used for uploading pictures as I have tried and its not working for me, or as it been changed ? Thanks guys Shannon
  9. Hi to everyone, may I say its good to be back after a long time away, but with sadness I have to say we: lost Charlie our Bullmastiff recently, those of you who remember this very special boy he had cancer, a tumour on his front leg. He had been diagnosed with it a few weeks before we sadly had to have him put to sleep, up until the day he couldn't take no more he was doing fine even if he was hobbleing round the garden, he was still his playfulself but it was getting to much for him toward the end, so hubs and I decided it was time to let him go. You can immagine how difficult it was for us. I was there with him that day and it totally broke my heart looking into his eyes for the last time, we were devestated although we knew it was for the best. I will never forget this gentle sweet natured boy, he will always have a special place in our hearts and know he will be looking down on us. We have kept his ashes in a beautiful urn, glazed white with FORGETMENOTS on it. I will post him in Memorial. Thanks for looking in. Shannon
  10. [b][color=darkred]Chilli dog, it may be kennel cough....as your dog came into contact with any others dogs ? if he has then its likely to be that. Best to seek advice from the vet first to see if it is. However benelin cough mixture is good for the cough and also a little ice cream to sooth the throat. Good Luck[/color][/b]
  11. [color=darkred]Thanks everyone for your support, Linda will very much appreciate it.[/color]
