    And now it doesn't work for me either.

    Carpal Pad Contacts the Ground

    I had read before that the Carpal Pad actually does contact the ground when a dog is running.
    A quick google image search found this photograph.

    I was being especially Phase II last night. I should have just kept my mouth shut.

    I'm deeply sorry, and I apologize to the OP, Mary Lynn, captainjack, Chris and Dennis.

    That's a really good way to put it.

    It's not a problem, until it's a problem. And then, if it's still a problem, I really do need to fix the problem.

    Lardy does mini-T?

    Do people really "run out of dog"?

    They don't "ruin" the dog. They just don't train the dog.

    Popping is bad.
