Re: Sophia goes to groomer

Auddymay, I appreciate you being honest with me. I can be a bit psycho with my girls. When I asked the vet about Sophia and the groomer, she recommended the muzzle. Honestly, Sophia really took to her right away as soon as she walked in the door which was weird. She jumped up on her and let her touc...

Sophia goes to groomer

Well, the mobile groomer came saturday and the girls look wonderful. Sophia did a GREAT job. I did go buy her her own muzzle and she put it on and jumped right in the truck. When she was in the bath and wet, she was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO SMALL...all of a sudden, the groomer took the muzzle off , put soa...

Re: Best way to remove eye gunk

I am an expert eye gook remover.... LOL... I use my fingers to clean the girls eyes several times a day. Normally it is not really gooey so it comes right off. I always joke with them when they are getting ready to go outside and they are waiting for their lead, I say " you know the rule, you have t...

Re: Nat Geo and chows

You are right Bama, that is the chow. He was the same color as yours... the vet did really take to him and gave him a lot of love even when he did not look so great. I think he passed on knowing love and that is what is important. The trainer also took to him as well and he was the one crying at his...

Re: Getting to know someone in chow time

I just want to make sure that I do not put Sophia in a situation where she feels like she has to bite so I am good with the muzzle... when I called around to find a mobile groomer, one of them said that if the dog bites, they will report it. I do not want to put Sophia in that situation so I will ha...

Getting to know someone in chow time

Sophia and Maggie are getting groomed on Saturday by a mobile groomer. They are quite expensive but we want to be able to see the girls, watch what is being done, etc and they really really really really need it badly so the expense is worth it right now. When I called, I asked how they would do a c...

Re: My puppy doesnt listen to me

When she is at the dog park off the leash, I call her and she totally and completely IGNORES me but she really has me in her sights so in her chow-way, she makes like she is following without it looki...

Re: Leroy Is Getting Sooooo Bad....Im Worried :(

These are my thoughts... with my chow, I always tell everyone when they come in my house to IGNORE the dog until she is ready to come over to you. If she does not want to come over, leave her alone. I always take precautions because I know that they are capable of snapping and biting. I do not want ...

How rough is too rough?

Sophia and Maggie play all the time. Now that Maggie (Newfie) is five times as big as Sophia, she still tries to play with her like she did when she was small. Often times, Newfie is running around with Sophia fur hanging from her mouth. She will go grab Sophia by the head and Sophia is so petite an...

She totally and completely ignored the people, kept her eye on me, hubby and puppy the whole time. She did engage a big with the other doggies but for the most ...

Well, little Sophia took a ride with both her parents and her big puppy sister to the dog park yesterday morning early. We let her off the leash and off she went, for the first hour she went all around, sniffing, pee peeing, and paying absolutely no attention to us or us calling her whatsoever. Afte...

Re: My latest poster Chow, Elvis has left the building.

I have read through the thread but still do not know what is going on with Elvis now - I see that there is a Berry referred to and is that Elvis's new name. Does the rescue have him? Is he doing better? Are donations still needed? Update on Elvis please?
