    Newf,

    If I were you I'd be getting her to the ophthalmologist's for a check-up just to be safe. The few $'s it would cost would be worth the peace of mind.

    Irishwhistler,

    Why not just ask him on his DH forum? If you don't want to ask him publicly, you can send him a PM on that site.

    FOM,

    That's a good question! It's been a couple of years since I got those posted on OFA's website and I don't remember. It seems like I contacted OFA and asked what I needed to do. I think I...

    I understand. It's just that the three Hillman videos deal with "Hold" in general, not just cigaring. I thought you might find his insights useful.

    Perhaps the OP should refer to the recent thread on "Cigaring" and watch the videos by Bill Hillman.

    I understand that is an issue. However, I could supply you with a copy of the Hip Evaluation Report that would show you that she was ranked in the 90th percentile. Or would you rather see her half...

    mitty,

    I know you understand this point, but I wanted to emphasize it for those who may not yet grasp EBV's. Without all of the data on hip scores (or whatever trait is being evaluated) included...

    I agree that the addition of fish and/or fish oil to add omega 3 fatty acids to your dog's diet is a good strategy. You might want to consider changing to a better quality food instead of...

    DFB,

    Be patient. Thinking about washing out a 15 week old puppy because it doesn't worship the ground on which you walk is a little drastic. As some of the previous posters have pointed out,...

    You might consider going to two feedings a day instead of three. That might help slow down the bowel motility. Just a thought!

    suepuff,

    If you're referring to doors between an indoor/outdoor run, they do make a guillotine style sliding dog. I've had one since 2003 and it works well to contain a litter of puppies outside...

    I'm in partial agreement with you. The dog work on the videos wasn't very impressive. Most decent Labs could do those things with little training. I chalk it up to "Different Strokes for...
