Thanks to all of you for your responses. After further research, I've decided to go ahead and schedule surgery for the end of August. The hardest part (beyond paying for it!) will be the 16 week recov ...

Hello,
My 5 y/o LARGE male was seen by a specialist yesterday who told me my boy needs surgery in his left knee. He slightly tore the ACL this past April, but it looks to be a conformation problem ...

Wires don't drool--but have you ever noticed that to a Wire, all the world's a napkin after they've eaten?! (Walls, furniture, people, the cat...)

Has she been tested for Lyme disease? If not, you should do so asap. Good luck.

Absolutely. There's no reason a bird-dog should not also be a good citizen. And there's no reason an owner has to put up with being dragged around on those (generally many more) occasions when the dog ...

Well, now, youse guys are merely confirming what I'd always already thought, so then the difference is, basically, where the dog is registered? Well, that's probably the wrong term, but you get my gis ...

I didn't believe it would actually work, but I taught a command to my GWP pup for just those times when I'm in a hurry, and by golly it DOES work! That was 2 years ago, and I find times when it's quit ...
