General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Does anyone know a place
« on: June 23, 2006, 01:39:29 pm »
that we can stay in LA preferably in the chinatown area that will allow our dog and not cost us a fortune?  I would really rather take her with us if we get to go.

How do you get your hyper dogs enough exercise when there are snow drifts everywhere?  I don't want to keep my dog locked up but if I don't find her the right home before I move, she'll be going with me and it's COLD in MN.  Not really the best place for a nearly hairless dog.

Hubby says our next dog has to be low energy.¬  I'm thinking of working with a rescue group possibly.¬  Are Pyrs considered low energy?¬  :D Also, hubby says it doesn't need to be a protective breed because he spends more time protecting it (Holly is a big baby) than it does him.¬  lol¬  My personal preference is a white dog but I'm not stuck on it.

Ok, low maintentence, low energy dog that has an independant personality, preferably low alpha types that listen to and are good with kids and don't have doggie odor. Oh! and quiet too!¬  Hubby doesn't like excessive barking.¬  Barking at the dog or an intruder is ok though.  A dog that doesn't need another dog would be nice as well.

Is there even such a dog out there?¬  ¬ ???

Anyone want to join me for a crying movie or two (or more)?  I'm stressed out more than I can handle and getting the mental stuffing beat out of me by life (and myself) and I could really use a good cry.  Anyone care to join in?   :'( :'( :'(

I have a credit card bill for over $1700 this month.  Someone got my # and has been pulling out cash on my card and charging things!   >:(

Doberman Discussions / Holly has learned a new trick. :S

My Holly girl has learned a trick recently that I had nothing to do with teaching her.  She's totally taught herself (and I wish she'd unlearn it!).  She thinks it's funny as hades to get behind me and WOOF! really loudly and watch Momma jump out of her chair and almost pee her pants.  She does it when she wants attention and I'm not givin it to her.  You can see her laughing at me and that stub of a tail going every time!  Little brat!!!  ::)

Anything Non-Dog Related / Save the grass!
« on: April 24, 2006, 11:38:58 am »
We're having our back yard landscaped and just had grass put in.  As many of you know, female dogs and grass don't mix.  Do any of you have suggestions as to how I can keep her from ruining my grass?  Getting rid of either of them is not an option so I really need to find a way for them to coexist peacefully.   ???

I've been in contact with a woman wanting to rehome her male Dobie......ok, i only just got in contact with her tonight but i've been reading her posts repeatedly so I feel like I know them.  ;D  Anyway, do you think I could convince hubby that it really is a small-med size dog?  Or maybe that we only have ONE dog and he's just seeing things/losing his marbles?  lol

Holly just let someone unlock our gate and walk right in without saying a thing to me!¬  ??? She didn't even lift her head!¬  I have a defective Dobie!!!¬  Anyone want to trade for something more alert?¬  ¬ :P¬  ¬ ::)

(no, I'm not realy getting rid of her ;))

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Any ideas?
« on: April 24, 2006, 05:11:06 am »
We're considering a smaller dog for our next addition.¬  We'll need a small-med size with enough energy to keep up with Holly but not as hyper as her.¬  It also needs to be calm with the kids because Nicholas can't stand anyone jumping on or licking him.¬  It also needs to be quite, not require a great deal of grooming, and not have doggy BO like a doberkid and gets along with other cats/animals because we like to take our furkids with us when we run around.¬  Very important is it being independant.¬  My hubby does NOT want another clingyor noisy dog or one with bad manners (stubborn/won't listen).¬ 

So basically something small, stupid, and lovable that takes almost no work and will adore my kids without being pushy about it.¬  lol  Also, a protective or at least alrting type would be nice for a change instead of missy "I don't hear a thing"   ::)

Any ideas?!¬  ¬ ???

Doberman Discussions / I forgot to tell you guys last week.

As some of you know I've been having major issues with Holly's hyperactivenes s.  Everything I'd read prior to getting her had said Dobies were energetic dogs but the only thing I could find about how much exercise they needed said around an hr a day.  Imagine my surprise when I found out the hard way exactly how wrong that was.  I was expecting an energy level around a GSD or Lab, both of which I've had in the past and had no problem caring for them.  Holly however is closer to a BC (on drugs)!  She has a serious OCD with tennis balls and no matter how much exercise you give her, it's never enough. 

Anyway, I've been taking her to the park every morning for 1-1 1/2 hrs and still spending all day/night throwing the toys at home or petting her.  I  felt stressed out trying to give her enough exercise and attention and the kids were getting a little annoyed with her which only stressed me more.

Fortunately we have come to an agreement that she will stop pestering me constantly and shoving/nagging me for attention in exchange for more time at the park.  Her magic number seems to be 3.  That's right, I'm now spending 3 hours at the dog park in the morning!  ::)

I am a bit worried though,  It seems the more exercise she get's, the more she wants/needs.  I don't know how I'll deal with that once I go back to work. ???  Lucky for her I love her so much.  I am seriously understanding why her last owners dumped her for having too much energy.  lol :P

Oh! and just to show you how certifiably insane I am, I still want another Dobie (most of the time).  lol   Can you tell I love her?   ;)  ;D

ok, finished rambling.  lol

After my youngest fell asleep on the loveseat and kick me off (without my pillow) I decided to lay on his matress on the floor with his animal pillow to watch tv.  Holly came over to get pet and left shortly after.  I didn't think anything of it, just kept watching tv.  That is until I felt something on my legs.  Aparently she thought I was cold because she got her blanket and covered me with it and came back to snuggle with me.  lol  I just love my Hollygirl!  :-*

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Does it still count?
« on: April 11, 2006, 11:51:53 am »
If you are standing near your dog and tell her to down, and she walks over to you and lays on your feet, does it still count as a down?  ;D

the Borzoi breed other than what's on this site?

It seems everywhere I go it's all the same info which isn't nearly enough to decide for or against a breed.  Hubby doesn't really want another Dobie so I'm trying to find something else to fit our family.
