  • My two lads (both big) kept wanting to get on the bed with us. In the end we just bought a super king size bed. Wrong signals the experts say, I know. BUT a few weeks ago I had a severe leg injury when dealing to a dead pine and I’ve been stuck in bed recovering since. Having those big hunks of snoring fur lying next to me has been a real help. They are true mates. I hope your guys are well. All the best from a temporarily laid up Kiwi.

  • ask your vet about using ASCRIPTON, for aches and pains, we used it for years on our aging German Shepherd (180 pounds), when we saw he was stiff, we would give him a pill and he would be able to go all day, then another at night. Kept him more active and in less pain. AND it is inexpensive Glad the puppers are doing so much better

  • IN a different vid you spoke of your dog's diet, trying different foods. Don't you know dogs need a raw meat diet? Wolves don't have kibble or any of the other crap made in factoris for profit. As a result of people feeding dogs kibble for convenience, many are deying young from cancer. My last dog, a Belgian Shepherd, died aged 10 from liver cancer, his predecessor also died form cancer. Then I discovered raw feeding, and my present German Shepherd is really fit and healthy. I recently learned that dogs can't make Vitamin D from sunlight like humans can, they get all they need from meat, but only if they get it! Vitamin D is vital for the immune system [for both humans and dogs] so wiuthout a meat diet dogs have a crap immune system and die young. It makes them susceptible to cancers, vitamin D being an anti-cancer agent. It's only natural!

It feels like the very basics of what it was like when the first people colonized the northern United States And Canada,they bearly had the technolorgy that you are using for the most part, and it amazes me that they were so successful!!

    • I hope so. Monty has developed a new habit. Now when I feed him, he fake goes to his bowl, then runs over to me and demands his treat supplements. If I tell him to stop begging and go eat, he runs back over to his food bowl, pushes his nose into the food to make me think he is eating, but does it so fast that it's obvious he didnt eat a bite, then runs back over and asks- demands again.

Big.., Huge views...,I believe xxoo seeing the boys playing, having fun, eating good, being tucked all cozy for bed, you full tired, it’s what I live for on these videos after you setting up camp. Deliciously cooking, it’s all of it we would rewatch narrowing in on different situations .. much luv this channel is great.

  • So.. I was thinking about how sir Monty refuses his water in a bowl. Maybe when warmer weather arrives you can dig him a hole in the ground, line it with something and fill it with his water. If he still snubs his nose at it, well. Maybe ya'll could get counseling to hash it out? 🤭

  • Interesting. Never heard of a pill to prevent Lymes Disease. Does it also work for humans? Do you take one?

    TexTex5 ай мурун
    • Nope. It doesnt prevent. It just kills ticks the moment they bite a dog and since it takes 24 to 48 hours for a tick to give a dog lymes they die before it can transmit. Hence why I swapped from once every three months to once a month. I think the medicine wore off when he got bit.
