what does he eat?
ahhhh, that makes sense!
Thanks Becky, good to know. Maybe they just didn't have the grounds and/or the workers this year.
Is it sometimes offered Becky?
read an interesting article on it somewhere or another that said that one of the reasons that dogs' lifespans are going down is that breeders perform heroics to save every puppy in the litter now,...
I guess. But National Specialties are, well, special. And it could give the conformation breeders something to watch and consider.
Came across this today and thought it looked kinda interesting. No idea if it really works, but might be worth trying in the back of the truck!
Is this the same dog that you posted the same thing about almost a year ago?
If yes, do you think it might be weather related, he's having problems with the heat?
Thanks, I checked EE and apparently the LRC does have a field trial, but it's not associated with the National Specialty, it's 2 weeks before and halfway across the country, and it's an all breed...
Am I reading this right, they don't offer MH level at the Lab National Specialty?
If not, does anyone know why not? I would think it would be popular.
GRCA has a limit of 180 for the Golden...
I'm so so sorry.
He's lucky to have you, and you're lucky to still have him! Sending many good thoughts for continuing progress.
I agree 110%, too. Dean Koontz has (had?) a lovely Golden named Trixie, who appears in several of his books.
Thanks for the update!
Glad to hear she's doing better. Sounds like a classic case of "garbage gut" to me. Watch out for what's likely to come out the other end when it makes its way thru the digestive tract!
Just another thought, perhaps your vet would be willing to do a phone consultation with either the University of IL vet school (champaign/urbana) and/or the University of WI vet school (Madison). ...
when my oldest dog stopped eating (different problem) I could sometimes get her to eat if I tossed her food to her, like a game of catch. Worked especially well with chunks of hot dog, etc.
Awesome story, thanks for sharing it.
Get her to a vet.
The color is frequently different in different runs of dog food, that doesn't mean anything. While it could be the food, I'd be suspicious that there's something else going on.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Love the name.
Nothing like making a new member, whose reference to his Dad makes me think he may even be a junior handler, feel welcome.
Have a friend in this area who lost a young Golden to Blasto. The other 2 dogs in the house were fine.
Here's a reasonably good article:
The Carolinas are both considered endemic for Blasto.
BTW, there is a pretty accurate urine test for Blasto. It's not cheap (about $200) but well worth it if your dog is showing even slight symptoms and you have been in an area known to have it.
