Sorry you're up in the middle of the night dealing with poor Molly's storm terrors (sorry for Molly, also, of course). Your weather map is really cool, I love the place names: Seaspray, Mt Useful, Balook smile.

I hope it clears up by sunrise,

Poor Miss Molly! I am hoping for quieter storms for you...

Jazz's anxiety wass terribly aggravated when I was trying a nit of kibble each day. Extremely noticeable. Maybe playing around with the food might make a difference.

Sorry Miss Moo is still having problems - we don't have any storms here today but Australia Day fireworks are making quite a few dogs howl. Hugs to you and the Moo!

Thank you Lisa hugging I am going to buy (if I can find anything decent) a small bag on Tuesday. They get Canidae grain free at the moment with raw. I don't want to start Molly on anything new yet though as if something works I wont know what it is (B 12, Multi B, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and when it gets here the OoO) so many new things she is on.

I would love to go back to feeding 100% raw but to get the variety I would be spending approx $50-$65 a week. I can't afford that.

Thanks Alison hugging She was so wiped out by the day that last night during the tennis when they had the fireworks in Melbourne, I didn't have to mute the tv!!!

I understand completely about the food! I sure hope that somehow you stumble over something that will work.

This may be totally off the wall and I know it was stress that wiped Molly out but is it possible that she needs a lot more exercise than she is getting? I know it is probably not going to be possible with all you have going on but now she does not have access to that beautiful beach you had before would it be possible to take her bike riding or do some ball chasing or something (???) to wipe her out physically.

I have a friend who has had three Border Collies (mostly two at a time) while I have known her and the middle one was from a farm (where he really belonged) and has some issues with nerves due to not having enough of an outlet for his energy requirements - he's a lovely dog but obsessive and nervous. Anyway, as I said, probably not relevant to Molly but I thought I'd add it to the thought pile! hugging

Thank you so much Lisa, Alison and Ruth hugging I appreciate your thoughts so much.

Alison, she probably could go a bit more? Currently she gets a 5km walk in the morning, around 30 minutes of fetch early afternoon (we have an acre so this is with the chuck-it - off leash). And I try and get her out for an afternoon walk too although sometimes it's not possible. I do take her swimming at the lake when it's hot enough although this is on a long line (no off leash here).

I've just re-started riding my bike (I'm a total novice) so when I get my confidence up a bit I will bring her along again. I have an attachment that I used to bike her with.

There's just not enough hours in the day and I feel so guilty for poor Coop as he throws a total tanty when I take Moo out frown I took them both to my parents today and he jumped out of the boot while I was getting his ramp out teary

Hey Bianca imsorry, I was not saying you are not doing enough! hugging The BC Toby's owner did/does heaps with him too it is just that some dogs (like him) need more than any owner can possible give. I would love there to be a quick fix and what I suggested was not a quick fix just a thought because something mentioned reminded me of Toby.

Sorry, I did not mean to add anything extra for you to do, I just thought if you thought it was a possibility then there might be a way to test for it and if it is part of the problem it might just have to be accepted as part of her and worked around as much as possible. You are currently trying so many things that it must be exhausting for you as it is so I would never intentionally burden you with more.

hugging I forgot to comment on this - is he okay? Shit happens and there is a lot worse that could have happened - at least he is feeling good enough in himself that he wants to do these things, better than just laying down and doing nothing which while easier to cope with would be sadder. Imagine after the surgery and he is all better he will be even more of a livewire - I bet you are looking forward to that??? crazy Take care of yourself, sweetie, things will work out. hugging

I wish it helped, but everybody here loves Molly and Cooper and hurts along with you right now. Cooper is such a adorable soul and to practically be on bed rest must be VERY trying for the whole family. Coop has a very long road ahead of him and that can't be out of your thoughts often and it's almost too much to bear that Molly is a little wacko. I hold out hope that they are basically strong dogs with impeccable care and that will (eventually) add up to improvement.

Bianca, I'm sorry Coop hopped out before you could get his ramp set up. How's he doing? I wish Molly felt better, for your sake as well as hers-- because you love her with all of your heart. You ask for solutions, you try every idea that you can for her. I am wishing Molly, Coopie, and you only smooth sailing and stability from here on out. I wish I had ideas, but I don't. You are keeping on top of Molly's issues and trying everything that you can. hugging goodjob I'm wishing you, Moo, and Cooper an easy day today! peacesign

Oh no Alison, I didn't take it that way at all hugging hugging I will get her running along side my bike soonish!

Thank you so much and Mary Jane and Patti hugging hugging

Coop jumped out so darn quick I didn't have time to drop the ramp and try to catch him. His right leg collapsed under him when he landed and he went over squealing teary My heart was in my throat. But within a few minutes of being inside Mums house, he was trotting along with Molly. Their house is really long - 30 metres so they act like it's a racetrack laugh

Not to de-rail Moo's thread but thank you for asking after my baby doofus. I emailed the surgeon last week to try and set a date and he is still on holidays but replied that he will call me this week. I don't think I can do any more to build up his muscle mass. He needs the surgery now.

Thanks again my friends, we appreciate it hugging
