Re: Sushi will not stop biting!

I agree about holding your chow by the scruff. I did that with Tess several times. A reminder for me to use it on Lilly. Good luck with the "no bite!"

Re: Should I be worried

I thought this article on hypothyroidism was interesting. It does sound like the condition is almost common. I give Lilly one egg per week, plus some other good foods as well as a high quality kibble. Good thoughts going your for you & your chow chow. http://dogcare.dailypuppy.com/iodine-deficie...

Re: My dog, Mimi bit my dad and now he seems hostile against

I am hoping with all my heart that everything has returned to "normal." Knowing how limited is a dog's (chow's) sight is, that had to be a consideration in what happened; dimmed lights, different smells. You all raised this chow boy from the time he was a pup. There is always risk when it ...

Re: My Little Lilly

I read mimis_dad's post and I hope he reads this & it helps. This last week Lilly lunged at Mike. He was rubbing her neck and got a little rough. Lilly turned on him and Mike pulled away quickly. She then went around the table and continued to growl and bark at him. There were lots of "No L...

Re: My Little Lilly

Our Lilly is growing up. She has been completely dependent on me. Wouldn't go out unless I went out with her; in the darkness of the evening (evening comes early in the north land), in the middle of the night, in the dawn of the morning. It has been really cold & I have to put layer upon layer o...

Re: Bed Jumper

One of the sweetest memories of my Tess was when she slept in our bed. She would nuzzle in there when Mike & I went to bed & make her own space pushing us this way & that, going around in circles until she was comfortable. She would jump in the bed when I said "I am going to take a ...

Re: shedding...flaky skin..???

I would also suggest taking Pong to another vet & have blood work done & also have the vet take a scrapping sample of his skin for dx. Does sound like a breach in his immune system.

Sweet Chow Chow Smells

Tess had the sweetest smell to her, I have mentioned it was like clean clothes drying out in the fresh open air. When we got Lilly, which is coming up on a year, honestly, her odor was stinky! I missed that sweet Chow smell and wondered why Lilly stank so. Just this last month we noticed a big chang...

Re: Grooming Troubles

You could try baking soda as a dry shampoo: Brush to get out the loose fur. Sprinkle the baking soda all over Chub Chub's coat except on his face, particularly around the nose and eyes. Gently massage the baking soda into his coat with your fingertips. Start just behind the ears and work your way ba...

Re: "Christmas Present"

I nixed the catnip mouse as it could be a chocking hazard. I have some yarn left from some projects, so I started Lilly a "shawl." I may put a little anise extract on it. I read that dogs like the scent of anise, that it like catnip for dogs. When Tess baked with me one of the cookies I ma...

"Christmas Present"

Every Christmas morning Tess would have a package under the tree, it was always something to eat. We would go down to the tree and tell her "Christmas present," give it to her and she would rip and tear until she got it open. Since Tess was a "Chow" hound it was easy to find some...

Thank you Christina chow mum. Just Lilly, Mike & me. Lilly has had lots of short walks today in between my cooking. Lilly is loving the smells, poor thing is on kibble & rice, I don't dare give her a nibble. It is duck for us this Thanksgiving...... Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Love the pictures. I have used the "blanket" technique too when Lilly was acting up (like a manic little 2 year old). It was late at night and Lilly wouldn't settle down. I took a light weight throw and put it over her, from head to tail. She immediately froze in place. It cracked me up bu...
