Yes well we never leave our dogs unsupervised with her and she knows not touch them while they're eating something real tasty like a pigs ear ow whatever but she knows that Charlie Boy can sometimes be snappy with her whereas Roman and the Shih Tzus are always chilled out with her. And well, we all know that there is a huge problem in the breed researching in the world Such a bloody shame it is.
No, we never leave ours unsupervised with Mia either, but we can be sat right next to her saying "leave Pepper alone, she doesn't like you," and she just ignores us and carries on - hence why she gets physically removed! She is only 3, so hopefully she'll learn soon. It is a shame indeed.
Hi Jessie, good to see you back. Sounds like you have been having a busy time in your absence. Hope you get the GCSE results you are hoping for. Look forward to hearing more about what you have been up to.
alfiemummy - seems right enough Always the friendly faces we keep in mind the most
scallywag - Happy to be back thankyou! Well that's exactly, we know Keira is in good hands now which is the main thing really - As for exam results, I'm nervous, but tried my absolute best which is all anybody can ask for
orpheous87 - It's so hard sometimes trying to get the youngers to understand the risks in dogs that just can't be bothered with kids! Hopefully, she will start to understand that Pepper doesn't really like her to fuss over her! My sister started to leave Charlie alone more when she was 4/5 but now shes getting older, Charlie actually tries to get her attention hahah, silly dog!
caz2golden - Hi Caz, thanks for the welcome back! Hope your goldies are well! I'm nervous about my results, but certain I will have done somewhat well - just trying not to get any hopes up just in case :/ I'm sure I will be able to update everybody more in further posts about what I've been doing during my time away from the forum!
cazypops - Hello, thankyou! Shame about Keira but it's better for her really as we wouldn't have enough time for proper one on one training really, not with having my sister and other dogs. And oooo, I am sooo excited to start college, will be great! Not sure if Veterinary is right for me but it's what I've always been keen to do so even if I don't end up doing that as a career, at least I can say that I tried! I think I would really regret it further in life if I didn't even try, but I am confident so far that I can do it! Just nervous about exam results at this stage Be gutted if I haven't done too well because I revised like hell and tried my absolute hardest to do as well as I possibly could. Some days I had to go into school at 7:30am and didn't get home until about 6:30-7pm! Let's hope the work has paid off.
BorderTerrier - Hello!! Hope you're well BT . The best advice I can give you, is stick in now. As hard as you can because the exams at the end of Year 11 are about all of the work that you cover over Year 10 & 11. I would also start revising from the very start of Year 11 as it makes it easier for you in the real exams! You'll be fine, no doubt.
Welcome back A.L. it was lovely to see an old forum member return.The nice thing about this forum is you can be away for however long,and take up where you left off.It's been a bit quiet lately,but its how it goes,people are busy with college ,jobs,holidays,catching up with their gardening etc etc.I could do with an extra pair of arms and legs just now,so I pop in when I am able.Good luck with your exam results,its a nail biting time,just horrible.
It certainly is Jessie99! Pepper always looks to us as though to say "help me!", so we don't worry too much about her actually trying to go for Mia as I think she realises that Mia doesn't mean harm. But Cody is a different story so we're on constant guard. We tell her all the time that he'll bite her, and she's aware of what a bite means because she's (unfortunately) witnessed fights between two of their own dogs, as well as growing up with two bitey puppies. But it still doesn't put her off trying to interact with Cody. Haha, bless Charlie! Pepper does occasionally go to Mia now, but not for long! She doesn't mind older kids now, so I'm sure once Mia is older, she'll be a lot happier
migsy - Thankyou for the kind welcome back That's what I love about the forum, I know that I can sort of go and come as I please and just catch up with old friends. It's nice that we can do this as on some forums, the users don't understand that we have things to do in actual life haha. It is horrible to be waiting around for the results! Only started to worry and sort of think about what ifs, etc recently as it's closer to the time! Eeek.
orpheous87 - Yes, Charlie seems to be like Pepper in a way, he doesn't want to hurt Amy but he only tolerates and some days he really just doesn't want to 'talk' to her at all but other days he will go over with his ball and want to have a game of fetch! He is starting to enjoy her company because with her getting older, I let her walk/hold him during walks (as he is the only one of our dogs that doesn't pull so much that she couldn't control him) and we get her to give him treats often so that he can understand that she is just another one of 'us' - the rest of the family (I have 2 older brothers).
