I like this litter. I was always going to get a Male, up until about 6 weeks ago. At which point I thought it might be better to get a bitch so as to reduce friction between the 3 when Ruby comes into heat. I reckoned that 2 bitch's would be better than 2 dogs, but if I have a good kennel/pen setup I can put him in there or even bring him in altogether and leave Bobby outside.

I don't think it will be a huge difference really, just a bit of hassle for a few weeks every year, something which quite possibly would have been there anyway between the 2 bitch's.

Going down on Friday to look at him, there was 3 male and 7 female, I was last in with my request so I got the last bitch left, think there might be another make left not sure tho.

Wad in the petshop today, I was looking for crates. There was 30" crates there, they were 'Savic' brand and Zinc plated (well that's what the box said) they were 66e is that a good price for a crate? Anyone know where I could get one better?

once there used to crate from puppyhood i dont think it really matters..... i can put daisy and vito in my big crate and leave them in it no probs.... they never try to get out.... once in it they chill out.... thats where they go when im out or events.... mine cost 75 from zooplus, cheapest around at the time.

id say if it was adult dog it would be a different story and ya might need a stronger one.

up to the individual owner really wot they like

Well if Savic are good then that's that, was just wondering if they were good or not. I'll buy it when I'm back from holidays on the 20th. Petworld is fairly dear most of the time so I was hoping some of ye might of had a link to the site or something.

Another question, should I get a 'bed' for inside the crate? Like either one if those 'supporting the ISPCA' style roundy beds (don't see that lasting) or maybe a hard plastic one? Or would I be better off with just blankets in the crate?

The 76cm (30") one was 65.99 today in Petworld, it's 79.99 on Zooplus. So even with 10% off it's still dearer on the interwebz.

^^ Does the shipping take the same? Will check that out, thanks Lisa Wink

I'm going to see them tomorrow, would it be OK, to throw up a few pics? Maybe just of my pup and not the litter?

Runt doesnt always mean its getting the bad teat everytime it is often the case it is going to be small or stunted for the rest of its life.

mi julie..
harry was getting the female pup for free as there was none left for sale...
she was a little small ,,harry was told that...
but she did not make it..
