Breed Notes - 19 May 2015
I can’t help leading off this week with the news we received last evening in a phone call from the vet that Dublin’s hip score has come back as 2:3, well under the breed average of 9. I must say that I was beginning to get a bit anxious having not heard for so long, it seemed, after his x-rays were done four weeks ago, especially as a bad result would have meant that he should probably have been rehomed, and he has really wormed his way into our hearts here. We had his elbows done at the same time, and they scored 0 (the range is 0-3), but I haven’t heard that the breed has any problems in that department.

Today at our Ringcraft Class we held an auction in aid of the disaster in Nepal. The pictures we see on the TV of the appalling conditions for all those left homeless by the earthquake are so moving. I was successful in bidding for a few things, including a memory game made by Purina, which Dublin and I will try to work out between us….if he doesn’t chew it up first. I’ll report back on it, because good exercises are always worth knowing about, but I am a tad suspicious as to how it made it to the auction if it is any good.

Maggie & Lloyd’s DJ has gone through it lately, although of course his involvement in the recent litter was actually made some long time ago. He has just had to undergo surgery to remove what proved a benign growth involving his testicles, which had been causing a hormone inbalance. Happily, he is home now and recovering, and evidently this evening was peacefully sleeping alongside Echo, his daughter, nearly eleven years younger than him, a lovely picture.
