Re: Family with young kids...is a chow right for us?

What kids wouldn't want to grow up with their very own lion or bear?? So long as the pup is aware of the pecking order, and with proper training, there's nothing more sinister about a chow then any other breed. When we picked up our girl, at first I was going to get another pup but she kept trying t...

Re: Lexi has been missing for 20 hours...

What terrible news, and so close to Christmas. I'm so very sorry to hear about your loss, my little girl chico used to get out and the things it does to your heart. I hope you're able to move on soon, and look back at all the good times you had with her. My heart breaks for you.

Re: Nasty Itch!!!

Thanks, it seems to have died down. we've had our vet have a look before and he seems to think that she's jumped off something a bit too high. We'll watch it for a few days and if it doesn't get better we'll take her back.....its getting better each day though so that's a good thing :)

Re: Nasty Itch!!!

Thanks for getting back to me, we've been told to use a soothing gel but her hair is that thick it wouldn't work, we struggle to get down to her skin as it is. I don't think she's been worm tested, she's wormed regularly so maybe will discuss this with the vet, and i'll definately mention the blocke...

Re: Does anyones Chow do this??

Our girl Chico is nearly 9 months old and does a few similar things.... At night when we're on the couch watching tv she'll get something she can chew (a bone, a stick etc) and come and sit in the same spot on the same couch every night...we have an L shaped couch so she jumps on the L part and will...
