Wonderful ! Good Canadian dog Prepare to be rescued from water whether you need to be or not :canadian:
It’s been 9 days now and it’s been an adventure for sure. Basically what we have is an 8 year old puppy. Not 1 issue with Sadie. She put him down a couple of times early on so they worked it out quickly and easily. We’ve been for a good walk every day and it’s quite obvious that these are the first walks he’s been on in many many years poor old boy. In our big field I took a chance and let him off lead and poor old soul didn’t know what to do, just stayed by my side. However, the last couple of days he’s started to get his bearings and is venturing out. Even chased his daughter a couple of times :ok: No problem with other males so far, although that may change once he gets his confidence back.
I could go on and on but overall it’s going well except for one thing, one big thing. He wants to kill the cats :boooo: At this point they can’t be alone together and we’re keeping him on lead if they’re in the same room. I could start a new thread on that problem.
Found out he also has his CKC junior Field title along with his show championship, although many years in a crate has certainly dulled his senses. I hope to get that back in time.
thanks y’all :canadian:
D-Day – 1 :scared: Getting Tristan 9am saturday morning :ok: Just in case we didn’t have enough on already we’re also picking up an 8 week old kitten tomorrow night :surrender:
Bit worried about Tristan, he’s been on a regular diet for a couple of weeks now and hasn’t put on much weight at all.
thanks all. Sadie is pouting and he hasn’t even arrived yet :whatever:
Thanks Val and Izzie We don’t get him for another 10 days when I have 6 days off in a row so I can keep control of the situation. I’ll get pictures then of our Canadian Champion , right now he’s ever so skinny. almost malnourished
Well, he passed his tests and we’re having him :ok:
Happy pre-birthday little one.
Thanks Diesel, thanks Val.
Sadie is spayed, so there’s no impregnation risk. Tristan has been a house dog so he does have a semblance of manners. Right now he’s living at Brighthope kennels with 2 other intact males and I haven’t heard of any problems but we’re going to take Sadie up there and see for ourselves.
I know it’s a risk which is why I’m hesitating and trying to find out as much as I can before we commit. What if he visits us for a week for a trial run? Is neutering him an effective option?
Huge congratulaions to both of you!
Gotta be Turkey. Haven’t been myself yet, but those who have, loved it.
LOL thx diesel
erm yikes …I always go through the worst-case scenarios when it comes to the Sadie monster :baby: We had a great walk today, lots of deer to point and chase …poop was normal, no straining. I have to work tomorrow but the dog walker will be by twice.
Gave her some oil with last nights dinner and breakfast . She didn’t pass it in her morning poop….man that’s gonna hurt comin out :canadian: probably clear the glands pretty good though 😉
