    Your Dogs Name: Why You Chose The Dog Name You Did

    Misha - just a name my husband always liked and she was named as we drove back in the car... Ben - we were not planning to keep him (he was a stray) and I thought if I called him Ben he would respond well to a new Spanish owner (ven aqui = come here).

    Any Airedale puppy owners?

    Aww, thanks Grammy!! Very true about owners and breeders!! I also think Airedales also can get nippy if they get bored, and they certainly like to show their teeth a lot - sometimes I feel like we live with a crocodile, lol. My sister has one living next door to her in the UK and it just...

    Any Airedale puppy owners?

    Congratulations on getting your Airedale! I agree with everything you've said, they can be hard work, but wonderful too - I don't don't know what we would do without our girl....unfortunately in Spain I've only met one other Airedale owner - thank goodness for the internet!

    Which Book

    A Clockwork Orange is my vote - I studied both book and film at uni although I've not seen the whole film version as it was withdrawn in the UK at the time.

    De-worming for dogs

    I put tablets into the center of a cream cheese triangle - she is too busy wolfing it down to think about what's in it - not sure if that would work with every dog, but best thing I have found.

    Fleas! Curse them!

    We use a dog shampoo which has a mild amount of tea tree in - and it seems to wipe them out - but flees only seem to make an appearance in spring here. I wash the bedding in a hot wash....kill all those little eggs - yukk!!

    Question (Morals)

    This has been and interesting thread - I've been away too long and missed the meaty discussions!!
