  1. [quote name='rotten_two']sorry you got bitten -- that sucks! could you not have moved him completely to another run and then retrieved the nozzle? reaching and grabbing and pushing and pulling in crate/run scenario is dangerous. maybe you do it all the time with no problem. there is always that one incident tho that makes you go oh yeah they have 42 teeth and i should really be more cautious. at least your reminder was relatively mild![/quote] I've been working as a groomer for almost 4 years. This is the first time a bite has resulted in a big bruise. I'm usually very aware and car
  2. I got bit in the thigh by a Bouvier today at work! :o Ok, so here's what happend: This customer dropped off her 2 Bouviers this morning for grooming, one male, one female. So I put both of them in seperate cages, then the male starts pawing at the cage, and he breaks the water bottle thats on it. The nozzle came off and fell into the cage, while the water was spilling everywhere. So I open the cage to go and get the nozzle, and the dog is trying to escape the cage, so I block him with my body, and what does he do? He bites me, HARD right on my right thigh. :evil: So I screamed a few obs
  3. Sometimes my dog wheres her collar(always when walking on leash), sometimes not in the house. I'm not worried about her bolting out the door and running away. If my dog hates me that much that she wants to run away from me, go ahead! I'll get another dog that WANTS to stay with me! :lol: (j/k Sydney :P )
  4. [quote name='__crazy_canine__']Alright, now I dont think Jake is hot anymore. :roll: :lol: and I used to like Ellen but damn, shes adding to the problem now too?! :x :([/quote] I love Ellen! She didnt say anything more than how the dogs are very popular, all her pets I know she adopts from local shelters. They other day on my local news, they did a segment promoting the "Puggle". It was disgusting, they went to this "breeder's" house ( I use the term loosely for these people) and where talking about how they sell the dogs for $800 each. And the lady just looked like white tr
  5. I'm actually just started teaching Sydney to retrieve. She is NOT a retrieving dog at all! :lol: But we're taking small baby steps with clicker training, and she's showing progress!! I want her to retrieve dumbells for obedience, but I couldn't find any wooden ones in any stores, only online, so I bought a squeaky tennis-ball dumbell toy that was at my work to start with anyways. I used the advice in this article: [url]http://www.geocities.com/jetflair/retrievearticle.html[/url] She learned very quickly that as soon as she touched her nose to the dumbell, click & treat. We rep
  6. haha :lol: So is the movie pro-dog fighting or anti-dog fighting? Hard to tell with that title :o :lol:
  7. I allready bought Syd her early X-mas present last week :lol: I couldnt wait till Christmas to buy it. She got a 3 row crystal collar and matching leather leash. The collar is black velvet, an inch wide with 3 rows of clear crystals, with gold hardware. The leash is thin black leather, gold hardware, and has 3 crystals near the snap and 3 crystals near the handle. Total cost=$60.00 :o :oops: Damn spoild dog!! :lol:
  8. Thanks everyone! I know I can't believe it's been a whole year allready, feels like I just got her! :lol:
  9. One year ago today I first brought Sydney home :D :bday: [img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v133/ShatteringGlass/010bb2fe.jpg[/img]
  10. I've used a dog-backpack for Sydney, I dont add a lot of weight, just a little, to get her more tired in a short walk when I don't have the time to take her for a nice long one. So this isnt like some new idea that these people are selling, just get some doggie saddle bags, and you can adjust the weight appropriatly for your dog.
  11. :o :lol: Sydney has gas every now and then, they arent stinky, they mostly just are loud! As much as it is funny and gives me something to laugh about, I need some help. She eats Canidae, and everythings gone great except for the gas, what can I give her to stop/cut down the farting?
  12. ya it was on last night @10pm They did show Sydney! I taped it lol :lol:
  13. [quote name='ObedienceGrrl']I was at our Petco party today. Tater and PoGo went as rock stars. I put pink and blue in their crests, had them wear little ripped up tank tops. Put some chains around their necks. They also had little bangles on their back legs with streamers. They didn't win but they sure looked cute trying! I liked the goody bags! Mine were cute![/quote] They must of looked great! :lol: Sydney loved her goodie bag, she allready destroyed the squeaky stuffed ghost that came in it. :roll: :lol:
  14. Massachusetts people(probably only myslef and xavierandrea) watch Fox 25 news tonight at 10:00pm. Sydney and I went to the Petco(my work) holloween pet costume contest and the local news crew was there and filmed Sydney and all the other dogs. She was dressed as a bad ass biker babe :ylsuper: We didnt win, but we got our picture taken, a goodie bag, and I'm SUPER impressed with how well Syd did with all the dogs, people, and noises, she was wagging her tail, only got scared a few times! :banan:
