HELLO EVERYONE,

MY NAME IS TRACEY AND I LIVE IN HUNTINGDON CAMBS, I HAVE A CHOC LAB CALLED HOLLY WHO IS 5 MONTHS OLD AND NOW TAKES UP MOST OF MY LIFE!!!
GEE, I THOUGHT THE KIDS WERE BAD!! BUT SHE IS WITH ME CONSTANTLY, GETTING ME INTO TROUBLE AND NEVER GIVING ME A MINUTES PEACE!!!
NOT THAT I WOULD HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY, MY SON IS 9 AND DEAF, WE WANTED A DOG THAT WOULD BE GENTLE WITH HIM AND MY OTHER TWO CHILDREN AS WELL, HOLLY IS NOW OUR 4TH CHILD! :lol:

I DO HAVE ONE QUESTION, WE HAVE HAD HER NEARLY 3 AND A HALF MONTHS NOW AND SHE HAS ONLY EVER BARKED ONCE!! I KNOW I SHOULD NOT MOAN AND BELIEVE ME I AM NOT, I AM JUST WONDERING WHEN THEY FIND THERE VOICES SO THAT I AM READY!!

MANY THANKS FOR THIS SITE IT IS GREAT

TRACE

Hi There,

Welcome to the forums!

I wouldn't worry, Corbie took a while to start barking but at 6 months he has definitely found his voice at last, and usually has a bark at the watercan when he goes out into the garden :lol:

Hi

I wouldn't concern yourself at this early stage.....

Bailey hardly ever barked and now barks quite a bit - mainly at other dogs and cats but boy is he loud!!!

Hi Trace

Welcome to the site! I'm sure you'll really enjoy it here and find lots of useful tips.

I grew up just outside Huntingdon, in Godmanchester, and went to school there (the dreaded Hinchingbrooke!). I now live just outside Cambridge, in Hardwick.

All the best,
Nic

Hi Trace

Welcome to the forum - I am sure that you will find loads of advice on here like we all do!

Like the others have said dont worry about Holly not barking much yet, in a few months time you will wish she didnt!!! Our Charlie is 1 now and Izzie is 3 and they bark at anything that they think is out of the ordinary, including ANY noise outside, doorbells on the TV - anything......!!! :roll:

So, make the most of these quiet days.....!! :D
