    RIP Poet...

    Gosh what a shock. RIP Justine, you lived the life you wanted and always provoked thought and discusssion.
  2. We've got 4 antlers of varying ages knocking around here. All my dogs and previous fosters have loved them and they come and go with them all the time. Even though they seem expensive mine have lasted on average over 6 months. So glad people's pooches are loving them on here
  3. Drifter's so lovely with or without the ears. She's grown up into such a pretty dog and looks more lurchery and less dally now barr the spots. Who'd have a spotty dog, eh?
  4. Hi this chap has pekins in every colour possible: http://www.cottagegardenchickens.co.uk/ I bought my hens from him earlier this year and they're all in excellent condition and were very fairly priced. He's near Bridgenorth.
  5. Saturday should be interesting with Blade in the mix! Talk about hyper
  6. Can't agree more they're a huge hit in our house with dogs that enjoy chewing. We've had ours for about 3 months and are still being enjoyed.
  7. If I didn't have lurchers then I wouldn't have made some amazing friends Other dog owners don't quite understand a hound's needs to run and play ra-ra bitey face all at the same time
  8. I had a rescue British Cream cat who regularly stripped her fur down to the skin. We tried everything from Feliway, to allergy testing and even anti depressants. In the end we just had to realise that this was who she was and to accept it. We never got to the cause of it all despite years of trying. As long as she's up to date with flea treatments and wormers just give her time.
  9. A life guard fan here too. I find it the best for times of stress such as moulting, poorliness and introductions. I was given a bottle of Battles poultry tonic which I found was ok for more frequent use.
  10. Very glam! Glad it all went well.
  11. It wouldn't hurt them to go on a good quality growers pellet especially through Winter but they tend to be higher in protein.
  12. Yes no probs. Remind me before the end of the week. I'll add it to the overnight bag and the 30 tonnes of dog stuff!
  13. I've got a black feather fan you're welcome to borrow. Not sure if it's Spanish enough but better than nothing! Just tittering at the thought of you in fancy dress......show girl, really?
  14. You make the tuna cake in the same way as the liver cake. Just replace the liver with 2 - 3 tins of tuna in oil (brine's too salty).
  15. Congratulations to all involved. Nice to see the family still at the helm at Forsham Arks too.
  16. Beautiful new girlies. We don't see anywhere near enough photos of your flock. Fantastic to see all your Bantam Babes
  17. To be honest with you the vast majority of dogs in rescue and healthy, happy and well adjusted. Due to people's finances a lot have had to be surrendered to rescues. I do think a puppy is a lot of hard work if you've never done it before.
  18. Why not consider fostering for your local rescue? It eliminates a massive "commitment" issue as the dog can stay for as long as you like. Sometimes it's nice to let kennel dogs out for a weekend or for longer term i.e. until they get rehomed. It will mean you'll get a taster of whether a dog is for you and you might even fall in love with one and decide to adopt it.
  19. No you're right they do stop laying. I can take as long as 12 weeks for a full moult and for the hen to recover. Sounds like you may be lucky enough to get your girl back into lay before the short days.
  20. Cute as a cute thing! I've been staying clear until they get homed. I'd hate for one to accidently fall into my pocket
  21. Well done! I'm so glad there are people, like you, that are willing to help out in an emergency. Most people would walk by 'cause it's not their problem.
  22. Thanks Lewis. Not really interested in buying one TBH but I'd never heard of them. Might be nosey and take a look next time I'm down.
