Any shouts for decent puppy crates guys? Was looking at the omlet ones as they don’t look like shit but are expensive


We have just got the go ahead from our landlord and are putting a deposit down on a retriever this week

Very un-fuk like but personally I'd recommend getting a cheap basic secondhand one from Facebook marketplace (usually find loads on there for £10-£20 for large sized ones). You'll end up throwing it out after they're house trained anyway.

Also you may wanna do an audit of your house plants to make sure the ones that aren't dog friendly aren't within reach.

Keep your crates , they come in handy after surgery / spaying etc

agreed on this. also we bought a smaller crate for when our puppy was younger as it can help the crate feel more den-like. We got the next size up not long ago and flogged the smaller one on fb marketplace, was gone within about an hour.

Whether you get the one you mentioned or a more simple one it's ultimately a metal cage in your living room and none of them are gonna look great tbh. Just gotta live with it until it's no longer a necessity.

You can get crate covers made, I got one through a company called lords and labradors to make it look a bit nicer than a bare metal cage.

Fair play for having a cat & dog double act.

Some real cute pups and kitties the last couple pages.
Your recent addition GG looks like he's preparing for a Richardson shoot Laughing out loud

I only had this cat in my life for the last few years. had to put him down a couple months ago. Never cried so much in my life afterwards. God damn I loved his ass!

Anyone thinking of getting a cat who hasn't had one before, can't recommend this breed enough - know it's a cliche but they're very puppy like. Follow you from room to room, super affectionate and interested in you.

Would love to get a dog but not keen on leaving it on it's own when we eventually return to the office. Maybe in a few years!
