Re: calming biscuits

This may be a far reach, but I had a situation with one of my brittanys a few years ago where in the middle of the night he would wake with an ear-splitting shriek - not a whine, like he was in intense pain. I thought maybe he had a cramp or something and would jump out of bed and look him over, and...

Re: hurricane

We had over a foot of rain in Tampa Bay area, and the water was at my back door. First time ever I had to get sandbags. I'm almost a mile inland from the bay, but we had so much rain the ground was saturated and flooding was widespread. My boys were upset at not being able to go out in the yard and ...

Re: Laryngeal Paralysis

Sorry to hear about Sugar and hoping for comfort for both Sugar and your family. Interesting, this is the first I've seen Brittanys identified as a breed at risk for this condition: Who is Most Commonly Affected by GOLPP? Geriatric dogs, anywhere from 8 to 13 years, average age of 11 years. Medium t...

Re: Reintroducing myself

I also do not post very often, but read often and have learned so much from this board. I am Sue, aka "britlover", and I currently have a 11+ year old L/W male Piper adopted from ABR 9 years ago. Piper was the "cover boy" for the ABR calendar (2009). I also have an orange Roan boy Bryce, 7+ yrs old,...

Re: Moby Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

So sorry to hear of Moby's crossing the bridge. I read this board more than I reply, and lately I'm struck by how long I've been reading these posts, measured by the dogs that have left us lately. I love your photos of Moby. I can say that your backpacking adventures inspired me to take my 2 brittan...

Re: Hair Loss in Healthy Young Dog

Your mention of the dog being left outside all the time gave me a thought. I had a rescue that had been kept in an outdoor kennel by his owner, and then surrendered to rescue at 5yrs old. I adopted him and he did not have any coat issues, but a few months later the former outdoor dog that was now an...

Re: Sheppy Crossed the Rainbow Bridge

My deepest sympathies on the loss of Shep. What a blessing he was to you, and also you to him. I know nothing I can say can ease the pain of losing such a wonderful companion, but take comfort in knowing he is free of pain - a final gift that you so lovingly gave to Shep. Hug his brothers, they miss...

I backpack with my two, the oldest is 10 now, and I can only hope they can continue to hike with me for as many years as your sweet girl acc...
