  1. Uh, no, I try to avoid situations like this..failure though as I'm up to 6 right now Besides 2nd dog syndrome only happens once. If you like her and want her, just do it. Go get her!
  2. Makes me wonder if it's residual from the recent collapse? Was it more severe or different than others? Has he been diagnosed as epileptic as well? I know, the unknown can be quite frightening..hang in there till you get him to the vet!
  3. Are his eyes moving quickly left to right? Has he an episode of collapse recently? And has he had any medication? HW, flea or tick treatment? Sorry you're dealing with this after hours..hopefully you can get him in and checked up tomorrow.
  4. Didn't we just have an election? Last week? Does anyone know the results of it? I haven't been able to find them posted anywhere...thanks!
  5. Convenience doesn't equate to quality. What did the pen work with no sheep mean to accomplish?
  6. What do you mean "building up slowly"? Is there any possible chance of you looking elsewhere for lessons?
  7. Another side thought..he could be going through a fear period right now. As with the above info keep this in mind. It too goes a long way with quiet calm praise and a more or less nonchalant attitude, like "that scary thing is no big deal", let's move on. Not exactly ignoring the behavior but not feeding either positively or negatively.
  8. Does he have any nice chews in his crate to occupy him?
  9. Aw, Geonni, I am so sorry to read this.
  10. Ah, it says "never question the HEF or ask for anything, they'll tell you what they deem necessary, when they deem it necessary"
  11. I've read it, many times. My understanding is the CEA test is for CH, not colobomas, and dogs don't go blind from CH, only colobomas and not always.
  12. If they're not worthy of publication what makes them worthy to be used in real life? Wasn't the CEA test originally a linkage test?
  13. So that means the linkage test can't be published? Or is that "won't"? The monopoly is still holding, holding owners/breeders hostage which can result in breeding of clear only due to the unknown. Or breedings with no testing...
  14. When the test was made available and Lohi and Mars have a monopoly and we have no choice due to no publication. However, Wisdom/MDD has far exceeded Verizon and Comcast for worst customer service ever. There are also 2 more tested "carriers" that are deaf, BAER tested...but there's been zero follow up, for 2 years, with the owners of these "outliers". If the agreement hasn't been nullified then my apologies, that's one agreement that maybe shouldn't have been made seeing the predicament folks are in.
  15. This confidentiality agreement? Would that be the one where he was to give all the data to the HEF as well? Thought that was nullified a long time ago...
  16. Nah, that's not what I meant..he got away from you and didn't listen, out of your realm of training right there
  17. And 1 more caveat...I am not sure I can fault Tucker entirely for the bites. That said, yes, he should have called off, immediately. He didn't. I know the initial shock of the whole situation took you to dark places, however, the guy had free access to your land. Doesn't make him right or Tucker wrong.
  18. Fence. With drive through gate. Lock on Gate. Fence around the entire house with cross fence to divide front from rear. A gate on each fence line. Fence as much as you can actually..E-Collar training, with a pro. You yourself know you are beginning to (if not already) get out of your ability.
  19. Whoever she is she did a great job!
  20. It's only impossible to restrict him if you fail do to so. Surgery is generally the best option for future non issues. Mind games and puzzles are a good way to pass some of the time while restricted. I'd not ask a breeder for any help as it's not 100% genetic. Environmental influences come into play and a breeder has no control over what you allow your pup to do once it leaves their care.
  21. New research then with new dogs in Dr Lohi's lab? Why the need for more dogs?
  22. Just curious if the HEF by chance received any sort of update?
  23. Positive improvements are nice to see! Glad you found a food that is agreeing with him.
