@ChrisLX200 fingers crossed for you then! Do love the merle colouring but any dog in that colour seems to cost a small fortune!
Gone for a cavapoo myself Did read about boughtbymany but seem to have had a few recent negative reviews. How much did pet plan double it to you mind me asking?
Here's a question for you more knowledgeable doggo owners:
When my pupper is on a lead attached to her collar she pulls like a crazy thing. No amount of stopping and turning around etc. will stop her.
When she's on her harness she's good as gold and will walk at heel on a loose lead.
Advantage with PetPlan was that my Vet would accept the policy as gaurantee they would get paid so I would not have needed to pay up front, with BBM you have to pay the Vet and claim costs back.
This infers some vets don't think they will pay? When I priced up bought by many they came out higher than petplan but it does depend on dog and age. It all gets more expensive as they get old.
does the harness attach at the chest or on back? My dog will walk fine with it attached to front, but pull if on back. I therefore assume that pulling when on front twists it and uncomfortable so she doesn’t pull then. She would happily strangle herself with the collar though but maybe that just isn’t as uncomfortable. Who knows
Copper (although more platinum) is very photogenic! Lovely dog.
I had a bad experience yesterday when due to a brain fade I managed to let the male Giant Schnauzer out at the same time as the male Anatolian Karabash. To say they hate one another is an understatement. Luckily a field gate separated them, but they immediately locked on to one another's heads through the slats of the gate, the Karabash attempting to drag the other through it. I managed to separate them without getting bitten, but the Giant Schnauzer had managed to pierce its top lip at the side with a top canine, stretching the lip down so it was hooked fast on the tooth. The vet's 15 miles away so I decided to see if I could free it myself.
I got the dog tied securely to the gate by its choke chain and a rope round its back end. Then I sawed off a piece of roughly 2 x 2 inch timber about 9 inches long. I jammed that in its jaws tying it with string to its collar around the back of its head, so it couldn't bite down on me. My fingers couldn't get enough grip to pull its top lip down enough, so resorted to a pair of pliers! That worked very well, and gave enough purchase to pull the side of its lip down and off the tooth. The dog was fine and eating his dinner 20 minutes later, seemingly forgiving me for treating him like a piece of machinery.
No injuries unlike the last fight where I got canines through, (right through) the palm of my right hand. Yes, it hurt, a lot, not at first but 10 minutes later I had tears in my eyes and wanting a stiff drink..
Just to show he's still alive still with an upper lip, the wife said i should post a current photo!
Oh dear, looks relatively unscathed.
Interestingly my Anatolian 'hates' that type of breed too...anything 'shaggy' looking.
Failed attempt at showcasing my 3 year old Anatolian, my image uploading skill sucks.
That's the size of a small pony!!A link to your photo arrived on my phone, but not here on my PC. I have taken the liberty of attaching the photo of your lovely dog here for you. Nice black mask and nice conformation, excellent tail carriage, he'd show well. Very nice!
