  1. This is just such a nice update and a good new beginning for all! Happy things worked out for both of you, sorry about the toys those are replaceable!
  2. Happy to hear the ear is better, no help in the fits though, hopeful he never has another.
  3. Sorry to hear this Lawgirl...this ear infection, how is it now? Was it healed and gone before this episode happened?
  4. Who said anything about "self fetching' sheep? It could also be said of the trial dog that requires non stop direction/communication etc..let's not belittle one side vs the other. Both play an important role in the breed.
  5. Going to a trial will give someone a nice overview. Let's face it though, some of the breeders there are such respected handlers that they could make a dead cockroach look golden. They're that good, it's not an insult.. If a puppy buyer has the wherewithal to visit farms and watch dogs work I think they have a decent idea of what the work is. Some prefer the farm dog as it's not entirely mechanical..sure it's home and knows the job on familiar territory but it also just does the job without non stop commands.. What qualifies a dog to be bred is too subjective. What one owner wants or
  6. Congratulations! It's nice when things work out and come together.
  7. In the hot months of summer I use K9 Superfuel.
  8. As to her weight, the only reason she's heavier is you've not managed her intake properly. Yes, lack of hormones will contribute to weight gain, however, they can't gain it if you don't feed it..between exercise and proper nutrition, you may find she feels better as well.
  9. Been using one for decades..they're fantastic! I don't pay what they want for a *pet* one. Mini Dremel, Home Depot, $40. 20 minutes and all 4 dogs are done. No muss no fuss - it's not allowed.
  10. Something tells me Robins dogs are all AKC registered, pretty sure she also works for AKC.
  11. She's an adorable pup! Congrats on getting her. Just a word of caution..it's not recommended that you cut/shave any of her trimming, maybe the feet to keep them neater but everything else should really just be brushed on a regular basis. There's a reason they have this coat
  12. Bumping this in hopes of an answer.
  13. I just glanced at the food, you are correct, I didn't know it! On a long shot but most is when dealing with Epi..you can test his Taurine levels. I am not holding out this is it but I'd lean more towards his pedigree. How old is he? Any family history? Have you looked at the Epi databases on line to see if there are relatives that are affected as well? As Ruth said, there are ways to control this with medication, that just depends on the frequency/duration and severity...
  14. Sorry to hear Mr is having a rough time lately. Have you used any flea/tick medications lately? I'd be inclined to say the food in not the culprit, however, I do know a few that it was. What do you feed? Brand? Grain Free?
  15. Can you possibly order her meds on line from another country? Below is from AlliVet - online.
