Totally agree with OA. I had a border collie. She was great. Lost her through my divorce. Yes, walking in bad weather etc was not nice and bills etc. But we were best mates and had a great laugh. I am going to really miss her. Always happy to see you, if you are sad they know you are and make you smile. I will miss.my dog, I have pictures of her - how bad is that?

Ally, when you decided to have children did it enter your.mind about illness and death? No. You can't say that as a reason not to have one.

Anyway, the jack Daniels, gin and wine has brought out my emotion.

It is 1.30am.

Goodnight

A dog just won his owner half a million quid last night.

Now there's a reason to get a dog!

Regarding my previous message. I do actually have a dog - but I got it because I wanted it, not because the kids did.

Snapzzz, it sounds like you might be wanting to commit yourself. You know all the pros and cons.

Was it Rednapps legal costs?

I just had to say something.

If there was a perfect way for City to win the title, that was it. The look on Fergusons face as he was preparing to send his team to collect their medals was priceless.

I heard he went home to watch a film: Gone in 60 Seconds

Dogs are indeed wonderful to have around (at any age!), even if owning them does bring a boatload of problems (as many of you already mentioned).

There were only a few years in my life when I was dog-less; I currently have two: a female mini-Schnauzer and a male American Pitbull - they make quite a pair - of course the Schnauzer is "da boss" !! For me the worst stress is when I have to go away and have to find somebody to take care of them.

I read a few posts back Iceman's comment saying: "when they go on their excellent skiing holidays they will have to have saved up at least £200 for it to go to kennels";
--- Icy: Did you actually place your dog in a kennel during a holiday? Or, if anybody else did it, could they comment on their experience with kennels? I thought about doing that, but here in the US the prices are higher than what Icy mentioned, and for two dogs the fee becomes pretty steep. And, besides that, I also worry that they would feel abandoned.... So if anybody did it, I'd appreciate any feedback.

I think kennels are great, in general, having chosen a good one etc etc etc.
I mentioned in an earlier thread how my dog Millie didn't want to come home when I went to collect her and she gets very excited as we drive the route to kennels.
My old dog, Ted, loved kennels as well, always pleased to go.

But ....
Many disaster, horror stories around kennels as well. I think they can be very hit and miss.
2 points.
Chose the kennel well. This is more of a feeling about the place than anything specific, but I would want a good sized paddock for exercise.
Get the dog into kennels when young. These last 2 of mine went for a night when a puppy (6 months ish) to get them used to the idea before a short, few days, stay.
Personally I would rather my dog was in a good kennels than have to get someone to take responsibility for them and certainly wouldn't have them at home with someone coming in to feed and exercise them.

Holidays are important for me and I like to think that Millie needs a holiday as well. She certainly seems happy at her kennels.

Oh - I pay £10 per night for her as a small dog - goes up for the big kennels for big dog.

Even I got a teensy bit excited by the football yesterday.
