Hey this is great! My mom and I were cleaning out the shop and attic and found 2 totes FILLED with cards. I know she likes to keep the sentimental ones but I'll see if we can get a big bundle together!

Our cats won't use litter boxes with lids either.  They are Maine Coons and really long, tall cats so it is uncomfortable for them to try and turn around.  Hubby made a wooden box out of ply wood and 2x4s.  It is around 4' long, 2'wide and 2.5' tall.  The lid is made so the 2x4 frame underneath the lid fits into the top of the box, so it is secure.  He covered the entire thing inside and out with carpet to match the cat tree.  The carpet absorbs any odors and the carpet on the floor keeps litter inside the box.  We recover it every year or so.  Two large litter trays fit in it, since my cats like different types of litter and won't both use the same one.  The box is in front of our dining room window.  They use the carpet covering as a scratching post, the cats and dogs lie on top of it to look out the window, and with the hole in the end, we slide the cat tree up to the end of it.  The cats can get in, the dogs can't get to the opening and everyone is happy.  Joe made a shelf that fits on the top perch of the cat tree and that is where we feed the cats.  My dogs are so heavy, if they try to climb on the tree to get the food, it tips and they get off before it falls.  Works well.  Good luck.

Can I borrow hubbies creativeness and carpentry skills? lol  :D

Silver lining - you don't have to clean the litter box as often. Just don't let the dog lick you in the mouth.
Tani does it when we're not home, so we can't do much about it. My husband pretends it doesn't happen, and we go on with life.


Totally with you there. Jager just started in the last couple months eat kittie crunchies. Ugh. Nasty @$$. Anyways, we do have a baby gate blocking him from the litter box, unless it's not fully latched down. Then it's a game: "How fast can I get past the gate, run around the room, jump on the bed, run into the bathroom and get a snack before Mom notices."  EEEEEEEEEWWWWW W! He never went treasure hunting before. I keep switching cat food (between bad breathe and bad gas I'm looking for a happy yet not so sticking medium) so maybe he likes variety. Either way, it's gross.

But I digress, gates work well if their latched!  ::) ;) :D

I'm so sorry about Voodoo. She was gorgeous. I'll make sure to toast to her tonight.  :'(

I'm sure Mr. Butler will be looking for that "monster" there from now on.  ;)

Bernese Mountain Dog Discussions / Re: Buying a new puppy - what to ask
« on: December 30, 2007, 11:14:31 pm »
My biggest suggestion would be if your not comfortable with the breeder, keep looking. Might take longer than you want but you will find one that you are comfortable with. I would say with a big dog, you'd probably want to make sure that you have a hip guarantee. Try searching for the Bernese Mountain Dog Club of Canada or of Ontario. They should have a list of breeders as well as what they require in order to be certified. You can also try the Canadian Kennel Club.

I live in the Tampa Bay Area of Florida and found the breeder that I love in Arkansas. It took me about 2 months longer than I wanted but I could call up anytime and ask for pictures, ask questions, anything. They wree very accomodating. At 8 weeks old, Jager had a hip and overall health guarantee AND had an 8-hour flight (including a layover) to get home to Mommy.  ;)

HAHAHAHA Jager will slobber all in his water with "floaties" the the cat will come and drink after him. I figure the dog drinks out of the pool and I can't exactly flush that every day so a little drool in his bowl won't kill him  ;)

Welcome aboard our furry fun little ship. I'm Annette, mom to the Jager-monster, a 3-year old bullmastiff (where does the time go!?)

More pictures definately! They are so cute!

Old English Mastiff Discussions / Re: To bad husband of the month is taken
« on: December 29, 2007, 10:30:11 pm »

Modified to add:  also he is only husband of the month because there is only 1 day left in the month!

LMAO that is great! Not necessary the reason why "because there is only 1 day left" but just the line.

It sucks that you had to tear into everyone but like Tina said, it's good that you got it off your chest. Hopefully the children listen and take to heart what you said and not just let it wear off in a week.

Can you tear into my mother so I can get another dog?  ;)

I so want one!  :-[  ;)

With all the babies and puppies I'm catching the fever over here. Since I can afford a puppy a little more right now I'm leaning more towards another pup.

They are adorable though!
