  1. I suppose you've already run all the system maintenance - clean up and defragmentation? Might make it a little quicker if you haven't run it for some time
  2. If the will was as specific as it appears to have been, I'm surprised it ever got as far as court. If the will was as specific as it appears to have been, I'm surprised it ever got as far as court.
  3. As she had quite a big op within the last three months, I would have her checked over. If she is sore for any reason it would explain her shying away from being touched. It does sound as though she is starting to come round (you said she allowed stroking recently, albeit briefly) so she may just need a little more time. On saying that, play can be a great ally. If she is toy orientated (particularly playing fetch) a gentle, brief stroke before re-throwing the toy and gradually building up her confidence that way can work wonders.

  5. I agree with you. The youngster is 10 years old for heavens sake. If they are going to let youngsters eenter the show (which, in my opinion is a mistake) then they have to accommodate them in any way they can. To be honest, after watching the show last night, the only semblence of any sort of talent was put through to the final. Greg Pritchard, who I liked in the heats was very, very disappointing - so out of tune it was embarrassing to watch him.
  6. I hadn't really planned on going on a diet despite being a good 2 and a half to three stone overweight, but then other half was diagnosed with diabetes just before Christmas. He was three stone overweight and something had to be done. Together (for morale support) we changed out diet to three meals a day. Low carb and low fat. Started New Years Day and, to date, hubby has lost over two stone and I've lost just over one and a half. It's been quite easy to be honest, but without that diagnosis, which seemed like a death sentence at the time with all of the dire warnings that went with it, I doubt we'd have done anything. So, in a way, diabetes has been life changing in a good way. I can't remember the last time either of us felt fitter than we do now Every cloud, as they say. ETA: Hubbies blood count has also dropped so for the foreseeable future there's no need for him to go on meds.
  7. http://www.dogs-r-us.org/videos.shtml Sorry, not sure where to put this, but as the videos are very distressing, I thought here might be the best place. On the site linked, are details of where to write to show your disgust. These places are licensed by the Local Authority which is a disgrace and they also very obviously contravene just about requirement of the Animal Welfare Act.
  8. Happy Gotcha Day Malcolm. Onwards and upwards little man Can I ask your mum, what type of harness is that and where did you get it from?

    I would say that about sums them up!!
  10. Sorry, Kathy, only just caught up with this. First thing is to get rid of the guilt! We all feel guilt when our dogs are unwell because we all want that elusive magic wand that makes everything alright again. That's got nothing to do with money, that's to do with our own fears and inner turmoil. I've got everything firmly crossed and sending loads of positive thoughts so adding those to all the others that are winging their way through will hopefully help her. Thinking of you all today and willing a positive outcome
  11. Of course, if the job turns out to be the same one that Tempest is holding interviews for, just think how impressed she would be if you did a presentation based on a murder mystery night involving the local amateur dramatic society. Great proof that you are good at taking on and using ideas . It sounds as though the presentation will be looking more for a mini-business plan type of presentation to show how good you would be at turning a profit rather than the event itself. Good luck with the interview and good luck with the interviewing both of you.
  12. Animal Care College Compass Both offer correspondence courses and are easy turned up on a search
  13. I had a laptop from Currys which was continually breaking down. The ruling that they have (and as PC World is the same company I imagine theirs is the same) is that if the repairs extend beyond 28 days they have to replace the laptop - in my case, I got a refund. The repair isn't one single repair, but any repeated repairs for the same problem. Log everything with dates so that you can prove you aren't deliberately delaying getting the machine fixed to get it to go over the 28 days and once you get there ring them and also write to them to state the problems (with all your logged information)asking for a refund under their 28 day ruling. Unfortunately, you are batting your head against a brick wall until you reach that point. Believe me, I know!!
  14. Get a padlock on that gate Vivien and keep any doors that allow access locked until well after the court case. He may be a 'back down' bully, but you don't want to risk him being able to open gates/doors and running.
  15. I must be very strange because I quite enjoyed it. Some good points made on inappropriate handling and training from the judges and a couple of good examples of how the unexpected can happen when push comes to shove The husky was having a lovely game and, far from being afraid of the handler, was showing typical play behaviour - chase me! chase me! Don't like Tara wotsit, but she proved a minor irritation with what I found to be an entertaining couple of hours of easy watching (with the odd chance to chat to the TV when I didn't agree with the marks ) Any platform that encourages getting dogs out of rescue centres and into homes can't be all bad
