  1. Since there are some upcoming trials in Wisconsin,which I am thrilled to be going to. Actually,this will be first trial I'm attending.So,I'm very excited to see dogs at work. Where hoping to get in contact with some sheltie handlers,learn more about the breed,& to learn more about herding. Just have a few basic questions about the trials: Typically,how do herding trials run? What should we bring? Thanks!
  2. If your wondering who Shiloh is,here you are Go here: http://www.bordercollie.org/boards/index.php?showtopic=34428 http://www.gonetothesnowdogs.com/shiloh.html This has been sad day for us, A close & good friend of ours Dog has passed away :(/>/> Shiloh, was A 11 year old Siberian Husky. About three weeks ago, she started to decline in health. She was diagnosed with many issues.Within the past week, she was recovering, she was getting better, & I thought she was going to pull through. Unfortunately,as of yesterday, she was rapidly declining in health. Today, she took turn for the worst. She wouldn't eat, she could not see or hear,her eye was getting worse,and was unbalanced when she walked.They was nothing they could do, the medication wasn't helping much,and she wasn't diagnosed with any disease.She had poor quality of life, they knew it was time. They euthanized her earlier in the day.They did the right thing, they knew she was in pain, and had no quality of life, they knew it was time.Shiloh has passed over Rainbow Bridge, illness & pain free. Though I'll never forget her, she may be gone, but she will always be in our hearts. I love Shiloh, Rest In Peace,Shiloh
  3. Yes, Shiloh does have allergies, & its A food that doesn't contain the ingredient. The dog is currently on Canidae, A grain-free formula.
  4. @Jovi/gcv-border: Exactly,that's what I'm thinking. My thought is that there multiple diease, that its just not one single diease. Who Knows? We can't diagnose over the Internet,nor are we Vets. It could be old age too, or both. She's doing much better, she's up & walking around, has A appetite. She still has A dropped jaw,& is unbalanced when she walks ,is having problems with her eye.
  5. ****UPDATE**** Shiloh has passed away, she was euthanized. Nothing was going right she lost her eyesight, went deaf, had more unbalanced walking, and she won't eat. :(/> Within the past day or so she declined rapidly. She was brought to the vet in the morning. She was suffering,was in pain, and had poor quality in life. They did the right thing, she is now has crossed rainbow bridge. She's pain free,and is not suffering. Maybe Shiloh & Ellie will met up. ~R.I.P Shiloh(& Ellie) You'll always be in our hearts~ Good evening USBCC members :D/> Sorry I've not been around much, I've been busy. A freind of ours currently has A 11 year old siberian husky. Here are the issues she's been diagnosed with. There are some of the diagnosed issues that have went away,& others she still has: • Dropped Jaw • Unbalanced Walking(Wobbly when she would walk) • Enlarged Heart • Low Red Blood Cell Count • Anemic • Vaginal infection • Infection in both ears They've been to be to three vets.She has had multiple tests. NOTHING has came up, she hasn't been diagnosed with any disease. Edit:Im doing this from my phone sorry about the grammar errors. http://m.facebook.com/gonetothesnowdogs?d=210688726947&_rdr
  6. After looking we found A breeder in Colorado. They do Agility & Herding. http://www.syler.com/sagebrush/index.htm Thoughts?
  7. In Wisconsin it's illegal to sell A dog before (either) Seven or Eight weeks. I forgot the the specific age, I'll need to check.I don't recommend letting puppy leave its litter mates before eight weeks of age,& for most breeders it raises red flag when they allow there puppies to go before eight weeks.As said above the only expectation is if •the breeder doesn't know what they are doing •the dam has lost interest in the litter •the dam and/or litter mates are of poor temperament and the pup is learning the wrong things" Quote from mum24dogs I agree 100% with that statement, I couldn't of said it better my self. I know of breeders/handlers who do agree with letting a Puppy out a six weeks.
  8. Neither would I feed any Ol'roy products,nor would I feed Kibbles'N'Bits,Beneful,or products similar to that. That's just my opinion though, & I am health conscious. I usually make my own treats or get all natural or organic treats(without by products soy,corn, or grains).
  9. Funny thing, where looking for a Dog:) We want a collie, but we didn't want a dog on the bigger side. She's such a cutie:) I'll PM you.
  10. Finally decision? Where avoiding "Herdabout Shelties",& while we're probably not getting a Sheltie from Jusdandy. I'm off the whole week, so I'm going to be talking some Agility & Stock Dog handlers,& researching the Internet for Sheltie. PM if you have any suggestions for breeders. Thanks for all the Answers,& Merry Christmas to you & your dogs.
