  1. There is always tons of work to do before the Finals to get set up and then after the Finals there is more work to take down all that was set up................no shortage of work and a real need for lots of volunteers........ Like Diane said, even 4 hrs will help, that's 4 hrs that might be to relieve someone else for a short time. The more volunteers the lighter the work load for all involved. So, consider volunteering, you will be glad you did.

  2. For anyone thinking about or interested in volunteering for the Finals at Belle Grove if you go to http://wwwlnationalsheepdogfinals.org and then click on the volunteer link in the left menu. That will take you to a page with the contact information for the volunteer coordinators for the various tasks that need all the volunteers that want to have a very rewarding experience while helping put on a great Final.

  3. Just checked their website, looks like they have a limited number of rooms left, mostly, smoking and king beds.........If anyone is interested in a room at this motel 6 I have a couple of extra rooms reserved, non smoking, two double beds, microwave and fridge..........I have two extra rooms for check in on Friday, the 11th with check out on Monday, the 14th . I have one extra room reserved for check in on Sunday, the 6th with check out on Monday, the 14th......The room reserved for all week could be modified/changed to accomodate someone coming in later in the week too. ..All three of these rooms were reserved at a lesser rate than the rate currently on the website.......I will hold onto these rooms until someone wants them or until the end of Sept before I cancel the reservations..........

  4. I can tell you I tried Parastar and it was zero percent effective on fleas......they didn't even slow down.........I think the most effective, quick way to kill fleas is with Capstar, it is only effective for 24 hrs, but starts working killing fleas within half hour. I try to keep a box in the van to prevent things like what happened when you went to your friend's house. Best if used in conjunction with other flea control products. Capstar is considered very safe and can be given frequently if necessary. No prescription needed, some feed stores carry it or you could order some online. Capstar rocks.

  5. I might be looking for a different vet, at the very least a second opinion, as your current vet does not appear well versed in TBDs. Steriods are contrindicated in treatment of TBDs........so I would get a second opinion and do some serious reading on TBDs.. Your vet might have under dosed your dog on the doxy too....

  6. <p>Something to keep in mind when checking dog food ingredient lists, ingredients are listed by pre processed weight; Because of that, one tactic used by some producers is to use whole meat as an ingredient. Because whole meat has a high water content it will weigh the most and as a result of that can/will be the first listed ingredient on the bag. Once the food is processed the end result is that there is actually not as much meat product in the food as the mislabel would lead a consumer to believe. The best first, early ingredients are named meat meals. The named meat meals will be meals made from a meat source that has had the water basically pressed out of it, so if a food lists a meat meal in the early ingredients then you are actually getting meat protein and not paying for water weight that is not contributing to the protein source. Consumers need to learn how to read dog food labels to decipher things like that..........salmon versus salmon meal, the salmon meal, by weight will be more "real" salmon and not water.

  7. They have over 500 pages of pedigrees listed...........some that I checked are incorrect. I don't think there is anything that can be done about it. The ones they have listed link to a 4 generation pedigree......some of those are also incorrect(of the few I knew and checked) Wherever they are getting their info it is obvious from missing info like owners, breeders etc that they probably don't have any kind of "official" permission to list much of their info.....
