    Hi good to meet a kindred soul. No unfortunately I sadly lost her in 1996 which knocked me sideways so ever since I got heavily involved with work. Anyway now I've more time it's great to have found this excellent website to get back into the genuine real world again.:)

    Thank you Siskin. I think one of the most appealing and fascinating traits about them is that they are always so aware of your every mood or is it just me ?

    No not just you. Isla seems to keep an eye on us all the time, she seems to know we are about to do something the moment you think of it, she spots minute clues as to what we are about to do, it often makes us laugh

    Hi and welcome to the forum. We have a cheeky Golden Retriever called Luna. She is 2 now. I had a Golden Retriever as a child named after Goldie from Blue Peter!! They are wonderful dogs. I'm sorry to hear that you lost your Goldie.x

    Having only recently found petforums and the many interesting topics it'll be the same for me now Margy as well :)

    One thing that is now standing out is the way the unscrupulous take advantage of those seeking a pet especially dogs and cats, when there's already existing legislation in place covering pet welfare and animal cruelty....

    Ref the Animal Welfare Act 2006 any thoughts on how to stop animal cruelty ? Especially now that pets are being stolen, worse still smuggled into the UK by criminal gangs even hiding the smaller breeds inside car seats to sell etc....

    Unfortunately why there are humans around cruelty will never stop, it seems to be part of some peoples DNA to be cruel to anything that breaths.
