Re: tongue troubles

When we first got our boys (I worried about everything!) I noticed that their tongues were not as blue as our Kimba-girl. So I read A LOT and found that even in some pure-bred chow chows, their pigmentation may not be as full as others. It's all a fluke of genetics, like some people have blue eyes a...

Re: Constant Licking

Thanks Karen and Rory's Dad. That makes a lot of sense to me. Leo always takes the lead in most things so Max's behavior really had me stumped. But, if the licking is a servant thing and the mounting is a, "let me see what I can get away with" thing and then Leo's growling is a "stay away from me" t...

Re: Irritating...

Oh dear, Jess. First, I'm glad you're both okay. Second, I'm glad you spoke up. Good girl, Jazz ... you take such good care of your Momma and you did her proud by not chomp-chomping like my boys probably would have.

Ohhhh Bella!!! You will always hold a very special place in my heart because it was your Momma's posting of your picture that made me fall in love with a blue chow chow ... and our Leo looks so much like you. ((Sorry Balou ... you're precious, too).

Sadly ... neither Leo nor Max do the frog. >>>waaaah haaa haa haaaaaaaa<<< Our Kimba would do that occasionally, but mostly just one hind out. Max doesn't even do one while Leo will occasionally do one. Ah well, I guess that just means they're not perfect. >>sniff sniff<< Nah ... never mind, they AR...

Hey there folks. Leo and Max are 14 months now, can you believe it?!?!?! I had to figure that out for another post to which I responded and my jaw dropped! Any whooooo ...

Re: Chow puppy not shedding

Wow! That's odd. Our boys started in their 7th/8th month but Max is still letting his mane loose (they're 14 months now) and his butt hair is so tight that no matter how much I brush/comb I just can't get rid of it. When Leo shed, he let loose of EVERYTHING ... undercoat and all. Fortunately, it gre...

So glad to hear that Rory's Dad!!

I'm not single but have two male chow chows. My husband works second shift, so I am alone with them the rest of the day and most of the night. It's all in training. I don't allow them to "man-handle" me and they don't attempt to do so. They have NEVER mounted me, but did go through that phase with o...

Re: chow puppy's hair

Someone mentioned that at seven months it was mostly puppy fluff that they removed and I can confirm this since my boys began to shed their own puppy fluff at about 7-8 months. Since they left the mane (for the lion cut) that's probably a good thing since our boys didn't shed much of that and their ...
