Hi

I am hoping to bring newly acquired Joe to this walk. Rain is forecast for Sunday. What happens in the case of heavy rain?!

Hi Marion

If it is really awful most people won't turn up but a few hardy souls will still brave it. The weather is always predicted to be worse than it is so fingers crossed it will be fine.

:D

Hi Sally

I was thinking more whether the dogs should or would like to be out in it! As you say you can't always rely on the forecast, it changes from day to day. Hope to be there anyway - with my 12 year old grandson as well - he might not be so keen on the rain.

Joe and I really enjoyed the Woodbridge walk. It was lovely to see him with the other greyhounds. I think he was overwhelmed by it all and when we got back he went into a very deep sleep and it was 2 or 3 hours before I saw any signs of movement!

Glad you and Joe had a lovely time. We didn't realise you had gone with so many hounds there.

Has Joe settled now. Did the pumpkin get him sorted out? :oops:

Hi Gill

Don't really know who anyone is apart from Sally! I only know the names from this site.

I decided to go because Joe was beginning to get shivery, not sure whether he was cold or just overwhelmed as at the moment he is constantly on the alert looking around at everything and I think he wore himself out doing that rather than the walk.

Haven't bought the pumpkin puree yet, will get over to waitrose. But at the moment I am eliminating the bonios from the diet to see what happens. He does have some normal poos and some very loose ones. I will try and get over today and get the canned pumpkin.

best wishes
marion

Hope it works - I had to use my tin this weekend, both dogs a bit loose, two meals with pumpkin added and all gone again :) Must remember to re-stock......

Hi Jac

I stocked up on the tinned pumpkin as just started Maddie on the" DRUG :?" for her Cushings as side effect is runny bum, so lets keep our fingers crossed I don't have to use it, but thanks for the advice.

Hi Amanda,
Hope it works for her - we gave some to my sisters dog when she was with us for a few days and it had the desired effect :) Hope Maddie gets on ok with her new treatment, it can take a few months for them to get the dose right but she should make a big improvement.
