    New to the group... my mummy is crazy about me and wants to share my tales and learn lots more about torts... I have 2 furry sisters and a massive house and my favourite thing in the whole wide world is corn on the cob and going in the shower I have my own Facebook page Colin SchewGirg so I guess I'm a little bit famous!

    His table is in a room inaccessible to the dogs. My dogs have pretty much no interest in! him they sniffed for first couple of days and are now bored they're used to all animals to be fair have been brought up with a menagerie and are only around him when were about I like him to have time to roam around house and garden but very carful wouldn't let anything happen to him.

    Great animal family!!
    Welcome to the forum!

    Have to agree about dogs and torts. I certainly found out the hard way. Walked away for 10 minutes. That's all it took and the retriever made his fatal move.

    I love your dogs!!
