Dressy, aka Greta

I just heard from Dressy’s new owners, who named her Greta. Sandy and Bob take great care of her, and she seems very happy, as evidenced by these great pics. They will be taking her to puppy classes soon, and she already knows basic commands. She is a natural retriever, and also likes to playContinue reading “Dressy, aka Greta”

Last day of show report, running errands, and current pics

Our last chance to win, and Winston got another Reserve. Boo.The judge gave me a compliment on See See as I was leaving the ring though. He said he thought she was going to be nice, and that she is just “loose” now, which is true. As I have mentioned to some of the otherContinue reading “Last day of show report, running errands, and current pics”

Good outcome with ears using strips!

Mustang, aka Chief, the only longhaired male in the litter, had some real trouble with his ears as you remember from previous posts.

In order for this to work, the ear must be almost up anyway, meaning it is occasionally flopping. And the bend can’t be low on the ear, or at the topContinue reading “Breathe Right strips for GSD puppy ears”

Clyde and See See playing and ears again

Here are a couple of videos of Clyde and See See playing in the yard. See See’s ears look great, even though I had to take the tape off sooner than I had planned due to an infection on the OUTSIDE of her ear. The heat and humidity really is a perfect environment for reallyContinue reading “Clyde and See See playing and ears again”

Connie’s ears, retaped

Here is a pic of Connie’s ears after her vet retaped them. The vet watched my videos to learn my method of taping. Vets do ear cropping which is totally different than simply taping ears that won’t stand. I think the vet did a good job, but I would have liked for the ears toContinue reading “Connie’s ears, retaped”
