I take it you're intending her to have a litter at some time in the future? Otherwise it's much kinder to her in the long run to have her spayed. (Although I do understand this might be difficult to arrange in current times).
That is why we have picked a boyfriend;-)

What's with this arranged marriage thing so 19th century ;) :):D
Pedigree. Not chum, but lineage. Hers is full of Field Trial Champions etc and she has a lovely temperament, so we're going to make more just like her, only more ginger.


(Although I have heard that labradors never breed true to colour, so a red and a ginger may produce black, brown and golden. )

every time the see it it’s like they have never seen a cat before and the moggie has to run the gauntlet. I do feel sorry for the thing
 
It appears that what I thought was a Cockapoo puppy, turns out to be a hairy land-shark with many pointy teeth. We have reached the nipping stage.

I now have hands and arms that look like I've been fisting the used needle bin at the local hospital.

I still look like that after two years of being slave to a Jackapoo... :rolleyes: :threaten:

The Little Bastard (we've now forgotten her actual name) managed to get hold of the postman's arse for the first time two days ago... :oops:

What a little cracker! We have 2 dogs, a Leonberger bitch and a Lab/Newfoundland cross dog. I'm on the lookout for a smaller beast as 64 kg of Leonberger is not what I consider a lapdog (although she does!). My I ask where did you source the "LB" from?
 
Vaccinations complete; training going fairly well (except for the 'don't eat your own poo' bit)...it's time for Keswick to do what dogs were made for this weekend. (Unless we're locked down)

To the Pub!

Oh, and I actually got to make the excuse at work this week that I wanted to as a kid, but being without dog made it difficult. The dog ate my homework.

Leonburgers are lovely (an RAF mate has two of them), but WAY too big for us! :)

TLB came from our niece a couple of years ago. As I've recounted here before, our lovely old Cocker-Collie cross finally snuffed it after 16 years and we weren't going to have another mutt. However, our niece rang later that week to say that she had nine puppies and nobody wanted the runt... I 'put my foot down with a firm hand' and gave 0A a firm and resounding "No f***ing way!"...

So of course by the end of the week we had fully committed to taking TLB home with us when she was old enough... I have the breaking-strain of badly-set blancmange... :rolleyes:

Her dad is a black pure-breed Toy Poodle, but quite big for the breed - at least three times her size. Her mum was a white, smooth-haired Jack Russell. At the time they were trying to breed pure black toy poodles from a pure-breed bitch, but he also got jiggy with her Jack Russell friend! The two bitches had nine pups between them on the same day and they all looked EXACTLY the same. TLB is now half the size and weight of her nearest sibling though.

Yeah, she is a little cracker. All the intelligence of a poodle (and non-moulting/hypoallergenic hair) combined with all the energy, mischief and bloody-minded grit and determination of a Jack Russell. Really nice nature with people and other dogs (except with the above-mentioned postman and now the vet, who she snapped at yesterday) and a great pub-dog.

Where is it legal to keep a Grizzly Bear as a pet?

I jest of course I used to know one of those mahoosive brutes, lovely nature and probably pretty handy if you want to shift a tree stump or a concrete road bridge in one go.
One "big" problem is that they are so affectionate; at 64kg a lapdog she isn't.

That's your problem, not hers, get a bigger lap issued. As far as she's concerned she's the same as she was as a pup.

I used to know a superb springer, great gundog and daft as a brush, he would sidle up, stick his head on my leg, then a paw, then another paw and unless stopped you would have a damn big furry lap ornament, he was big as springers go too.
I often used to take him for an amble at clay shoots when his owner was busy and the looks of pure "WTF are you doing" from him when he'd put up some wildlife and I didn't shoot it were impressive. Not a dog that you'd ever consider putting a lead on, he'd come to heel like he'd been nailed there and respond to commands instantly.

Sadly, after a deteriorating condition, we lost this chap today. The wife and daughter had to do the deed with the vet as I’m out of the country with work. My heart is absolutely broken. Sleep well Apollo, it’s been an absolute pleasure.
