Re: What are you and your dogs up to today? Part 2

Mom said i should look at long coats as they appear to have more straight backs. A neighbour has a longhaired GSD who has a lovely straight back - her conformation is more like a rough collie than a show GSD, and I can't tell you how much I prefer it. I've been struggling a bit, ...

Question about Lara?

... apart from her kidney issues she is otherwise healthy. And it made me think about the German shepherd in general, what are your thoughts on if the GSD is in the same league as a Bernese very unhealthy?

Re: Hounds?

Lara gets annoyed because everyone ignores her and is only interested in Sampson, I don't know if it's because people are scared to say hi with GSD associated with being police dogs or if it's like you said with the lab "oh it's just another GSD" I was surprised a few weeks back to see a giant ...
