    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!
  4. 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...
  12. Fostering dogs from local rescues? Pros? Cons?

    We're in a position to be able to foster dogs for a local rescue, possibly, and we were curious to hear about other's experiences, and what we might expect to have to deal with!

    I get that the...

    Can you give us a profile pic showing his head? With that colouring, he may have Smooth Collie in him.

    If you'd care to share more about his temperament, manners with dogs and cats, etc, that'd...
  14. Borso d'Este coats still available anywhere - in the world?

    I had a couple of different Borso d'Este coats that I need to replace. Unfortunately Tropical Rider don't seem to stock them any more.

    Anyone know who does stock them nowadays? Are they even...

    There's one Coth'r who sells the opposition who disses hay huts with relish, but we've used them every winter for the past 9 years to feed half a dozen rambunctious draft-cross geldings with no...

    Ain't that the truth!!! Only dealer I knew of was a very dodgy horse-dealing chick out near Halifax, Nova Scotia - total crook, but being a sweet-talkin' purty blonde (well, she was back then -...

    Ripper Street - Matthew McFadyen as a London copper - need I say more?

    They are good.....but not that much better than any other good blender to justify the high $$, imo.

    But, if you want one, keep an eye out on your local Craigslist, because (a) the demonstrators...

    Something to help scar tissue heal?

    So, I remember vaguely a couple of discussions here about some unusual creams, balms, etc, that really seemed to help heal scar tissue, but I didn't have much luck finding them, I'm afraid.

    Can...

    Ouch! Don't think my swallows would like the paint ball gun or the pressure washer treatment - too Gitmo. They're sensitive little things, don't you know! Plus, as it'll be part of the house, I...

    I hadn't realised they'd be laying their eggs quite so promptly - good to know.

    The cats are lurking, sure enough, although the swallows just zip right on by, much to the cats' disgust.

    Wow - I didn't realise moth balls still existed: thanks!

    Crikey - that sounds like it'd be scaring me, too, lol. I'll see what the hardware store has to offer - thanks. :)
  25. Humane ways to dissuade swallows from nesting?

    Haven't been here for ages, and posted this rather urgent question in "Off Course" first, by mistake, oops.

    Anyway, here it is again:

    We've opened up the side of an old building attached to the...
