    lol at the really fat neighbour! We're using the tractor to shove T-posts in for the corners, and the chain link posts can slide down over the top of them.

    We're *hoping* that we'll only need...

    Thank you! That does look good, however it's not the recipe I love, which was less cludgy, and had sharper flavours - lemon, yoghurt, no hot spice, no stock, no tomatoes, and it cooked on the BBQ,...

    I don't know! Probably 5' if we install a 4' fence, or 6' if we install a 5' fence, lol.

    I LOVE it when dogs do this - to me, it's a sign of a very happy dog indeed!

    We have friends with a sweet labradoodle, and they give her a real bollicking when she gets the zoomies.....outside. ...
  5. Tips and tricks for installing chain link fencing?

    What it says in the title! We need to fence the yard soon for new dogs :D and I'm buying the chain link required in the next couple of days.

    Would greatly appreciate any hints, tips,...

    Weird way to show he's proud, I'd say!

    Next time you go away (and make it soon), give him lots of warning so he's got time to hire a cleaning lady for the duration.

    Or just stick him in kennels.
  7. Cook books: anyone have the old TimeLife "Fresh Ways With..." Series? Need a recipe!

    We had the old TimeLife series of cookbooks titled "Fresh Ways With" - Lamb, Chicken, etc.

    What I'm looking for is the (delicious!) recipe for spiced/Moroccan lamb - it was a boned leg of lamb...

    @ twotruedoc - THANK YOU for posting that link! I was about to post a question about buying and installing chain link fencing, but I think all the answers are probably there. :)

    We had one stay with us for her summer holidays. She had wiry hair, and came from a good breeder apparently.

    She was a hoot, very personable and lively, a terrible sand-tray-surfer :eek: and a...

    Interesting to read such a variety of experiences....

    I've only known a couple, and I did not like them. They were well-handled and well-trained, but despite this they were still, ime, pushy,...

    You can tow a trailer with a LAWN TRACTOR, for goodness sake, so of course your Mercedes will be able to pull a trailer.

    But - you simply cannot control a trailer with anything other than a solid...

    Maybe try and keep her in when the bugs are out? Cats can get this weird thing where, if they scratch at a mosquito bite on their ear enough, and keep shaking their head, the ear kind of...

    Huh - wow. I understand the rationale completely, but one would think that there would be a bit of common sense underlying the decision-making in this case.
  14. I can't believe they're so intractable - that's...

    I can't believe they're so intractable - that's crazy, and counter-productive, surely, to their "corporate" ideals.

    Is it really State law that he must be neutered before adoption (can they cite...

    It's an impossible situation for all concerned - a bunch of adults throwing their weight around, metaphorically sitting on the fence, while the poor dog continues to suffer in some discomfort.

    The...

    Dog in question has an unknown history, but she's middle-aged, JRT or Corgi type of physique, chubby (very!), cheery, but - she's not particularly careful about her house-training, apparently, and...

    I preferred a couple of solid chunk of Christmas cake in mine, cut to fit, well liquored-up!
  18. Flasks, sandwich cases....anyone use them any more?

    There's a local auction that has some hunt stuff in it - hunt-themed china, a leather saddle-bag with a sandwich tin, and a leather flask case with a glass flask (hallmarked silver ferrule!), cups,...

    Not a hijack at all, Lazy PH! I'm finding it really interesting, reading about everyone's experiences, and hopefully this discussion will be helpful for other would-be fosterers.

    It may be...

    Sooo.....it's pretty much done on a who-you-know and word-of-mouth basis, then? That's what we figured, and we were just curious, really. That takes an amazing amount of hard work and determination...

    I'm curious to know how these foster groups are able to pull dogs from (high) kill shelters? I keep reading that this is what happens, just wondering how the system works on "that" side of the fence...

    I've noticed a similar issue for some of our cats over the years - I figured it was a conformation thing. One dear sweet cat in particular had a bit of nerve damage on her muzzle, I think, probably...

    So sorry for your loss - it's the heartbreakingly gut-wrenching part of having animals in our lives, isn't it.

    I loved seeing the puppy and the mature dog - thanks for sharing.

    Those are wonderfully helpful thoughts, ideas, and stories: thank you!

    We're in Canada, and I've spent the day avoiding bills ;) and reading up on all the local rescue groups: there are a TON of...

    He looks so relieved to have landed on a comfy spot at long last. We had a rescue dog once that looked rather like him (build, markings), and he had that same look of profound gratitude. His...
