I'm absolutely in love with, (I hope you know what I'm on about) Pippin from the BBC children's programme 'Come Outside' whom I'm 99% certain is a tebetian terrier?? She looks exactly like yours, can you tell me if you have to have them clipped and if they moult at all?? Sorry everyone, not bear related at all, but I'm so excited i've found domeone who has one, what are they like - do they like children???
After seeing Lynne's cat Benny I had to post a pic of my cat, who thinks she's a dog . They look like twins !
Blackie ( a girl) is 2 1/2 now. She was hit by a car last October ( the vet assumes) and spent 5 days in the hospital after having her ripped bladder sew back together. She managed to drag herself home and when I found her on the deck she was in bad shape,swollen, staggering like she drank something she shouldn't have . The vet didn't think she was going to pull thru. But ,she is now crazier than ever (and we are $2000 poorer ) Gotta love those vet bills that add up slowly till you get the final total ! But, she is part of the family so we did what we could to save her.
Hi Clare....I love Tibetan terriers.....they are quite easy to manage...the coats don't moult , we keep ours clipped but some people keep them in full coat...that's a lot of work and I do like them when their coat is shorter.....they have sweet natures and are loyal and quite easy to train. It's hard to tell if a dog is good with children...it's perhaps a case of vice versa.....but I'd say their placid nature makes them a pretty safe bet.
By they way, I don't think all Cockers are smelly....and our sweet little soul wouldn't be either if she didn't keep jumping in the fish pond...
Clare..if you want me to I can let you have the name of a good TT breeder not a million miles from you just south of Gloucester...email me privately if you want the address.
I am glad to meet another Jack Russell lover! My last dog lived until age 14 and was a terror until the very last. Loved being underground, and was the best ball catcher I've ever known. My Cody, now, doesn't understand anything about playing ball!
The photo shows my old Gyp at least 10 years ago, with a rag doll I made tied onto her back. She was playing ball, completely ignoring the doll! She would rear up like a horse, and take off after the ball at full speed, with the poor cowboy doll hanging on for dear life!!! Just watching his long hair flop as he rode was hysterical. The photo is taken off a video, and it is so funny to watch, you'd better go to the bathroom first!!
I miss my old Gyp. My fierce girl. But my new sweet boy Cody (in the previously posted photo) has certainly filled the hole in my heart!!
Keep the petstuff coming, you all!
PS - I will be starting a new bear this week! Hooray!
Rita I also am a bird lover. I have the most amazing budgie. He's across between a dog and a toddler. He has quite a large vocabulary. He actually speaks to me.
The wild parrots knock on the door in the morning when they want their breakfast. It only took 10 days to train them.:lol: & yes most of them are male.
will post picks of all of them soon
Yes I love the breed. Their cheekiness and energy and love..I don't know how old my Nala is but she is really greying badly..she is still on the go and jumping on tables etc lol. she is half foxy so has legs like tigger from winny the pooh lol I well up when I think of anything happening, but don't think of it often...just worry how old she really is...
Gyp looks and sounds like my Kira. She will catch the ball for all day if you could throw it! And the way she actualy throws the ball up onto my lap is amazing and so cute I can imagine your girl with the doll lol...just picturing Kira doing it lol...oh they do make me laugh so hard lol.
Kira's favourite thing is ball and food lol. And she can eat her dinner in 10 seconds and then she does like 5 huge burps lol...little piggy.
I'm sorry about your girl...glad you have cody tho..he is a cutie
