I visited my friend Kathleen yesterday to help her with some on line record keeping. She will be going to Florida the end of the month and now Sammy and possibly Woody who is a son of my Walter will be spending the winter with me.Only four months so will not be hard to have two more for those four months. Woody is just a little older than Finn so they should have a great time together.
Walter is going in for his OFA hip x-ray next week and fingers crossed that they are good. His father has excellent hips so hoping for good or better. This is part of the testing we do with our breeding dogs, so that we can guarantee healthy pups. Two of the most important tests are the eye certification and hip x-ray. Another test that is good for all dogs to have is the MDR1 which is a medical drug resistance test. If it is normal then your dog will likely be able to tolerate most drugs without problems. If it is not normal then there could be medications that you would need to be careful using with your dog. This is an important test for any dog.
Need to get busy since I took yesterday off. Thankfully I am ready for winter except for lots of coats to brush.
