Re: Elsa in first heat :/

We allowed Gracie to go into heat before having her spayed, we had been told the same thing. I don't know if there is any truth to it or not, but it made sense to me, so we waited. I was told also to make sure to wait a few weeks afterwards before having it done. I think we waited three months. I ca...

Re: Vicious Fighting

18 to 20 months is about the age my two females first got into a vicious fight. They had to be kept apart for around a week because the youngest was bound and determined to pick up where she left off any chance she could get. Thought we had things under control and it happened again with another sev...

Re: Zahra, meds...

I use American cheese for Gracie. I just roll the pill in a strip of cheese. Like Rory's dad said, it's a straight on gulp. When I ran out of cheese one night, I just cut a small piece of a hotdog, stuffed the pill in there and it was the same thing, gulp and the pill was gone. She never knew she ju...

Re: Zahra, meds...

Gracie is taking three different medications right now. I have been rolling one pill at a time in cheese. Last night we ran out of cheese so I cut small pieces of hotdogs, stuffed a pill in each piece and so far have had no problems. She doesn't seem to even notice the pills in them.

Re: Doorbell Reaction

I haven't posted in a long time but I love this thread. For the longest time, everytime Gracie heard a doorbell on the tv she was running to the door barking. We would laugh and tell her it's the tv silly. Ever since our doorbell stopped working, she doesn't get as excited when she hears one on the ...

Re: Lily-isms

My son-in-law lived with us when we first got Gracie. She will be six in March and to this day she tolerates him only. I think they have reached an agreement, she will let him in the house, he can even stay here when they visit, just keep the hands off of her, don't even look at her and she agrees t...

Re: Toy issues to throw or not to throw

That is Princess. What she does is greet us or others with a toy or object. If someone takes the toy and tosses it because they think she wants to play, she just stands there looking so hurt. You would not believe how many times people have apologized to her after throwing the toy! With Princess it ...

Re: New User - Plz Plz Help! I want to keep my Chow!

She is also clueless when Daisy is getting aggressive. She just wants to play. They have separate food dishes, one eats inside the other outside - it's always been that way and has worked out well. Are you sure this is aggression and not Daisy playing? We had this discussion on the other board not ...

Re: My Chow bit my daughter...

Re: I thought this was so sweet.

I love waking up to Gracie cuddled up next to me in bed.

Another thing I think is sweet is when it storms at night, Princess will jump up on the be...

Re: Chows and Autism

There is no proof of the connection. Some studies claim the mercury in the vaccinations causes the autism. Its said that the symptoms of murcury poisioning resembles symptoms of autism. Also, its said that a child tends to show signs of autism around the same age that the MMR is given. Some studies ...

And I thought Gracie was the queen of guilt trips! When I would grab my shoes to leave for class, Gracie would get up and walk away. Would not walk me to the door or anything. Just lay on the foot of the bed with the saddest look I have ever seen. Wouldn't even lift her head up to respond to me. I a...

Re: Two same s-x chows

I agree with Jonathan, you have to be able to diffuse the situation before it happens. I learned the signs only after fights broke out. Now its just second nature to constantly be aware of how Gracie is feeling. Paying close attention to her body language and reacting before the fight happens. This ...
