  1. Hmm, a Hokie asking about Hoos! LOL! Hoo Fighter is a takeoff on the band Foo Fighters. I'm a Virginia grad, hence HooFighter. Of course, I can see where a Hokie might think it was one of their own....
  2. Denise, Thanks for responding. I took Kelso to the vet last night. The doctor checked out his leg and couldn't find anything wrong. To ease any thoughts I might have, he x-rayed both legs, hip and knee joints. The xrays looked excellent. We still don't know what is wrong with him. It may just be a muscle strain. I'm going to limit his plyaing and generally jsut walk him for the next month and to see if this goes away. I am a little concerned in that, even without feteching or frisbee, he can get pretty worked up. I'll post back in a montha nd keep you posted. Gary
  3. All Hi. It's been a while since I have posted here. Hope all is going well. Anyway, I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I have a BC who is very atheletic and driven. He loves to play frisbee and fetch with a ball. However, he goes at it like a demon...full speed ahead all the time. Anyway, about a month ago, I noticed he was slow to rise after physical activity. I physically handled his leg, looking for any sign of pain from the dog, but he never showedany. Anyway, after one play session, he was very slow to rise, so I went to the vet. By the time we got to the vet (next day), you couldn't tell anything was wrong. The vet thought that it must just be muscle strain after checking out his leg. So, for the next 2 weeks, no play sessions, just walking. He seemed to be ok with no signs of the lameness. So I started playing with him again, but in amore controlled way. The lamess reappeared, but was very minor. This past Saturday, I went on a 3-5 mile walk with the dog. No running, just walking. That afternoon, he could barely get up. I have a vet appointement todya, but I was hoping someone could give me their thoughts on what is wrong. In searching the web, I have 2 thoughs. A partially torn tendon or hip dysplasia. I was hoping it was muscle strain, but I'm not so sure anymore. My thoughts on the hip dysplasia is that he had not shown any signs of lameness prior to about a month ago, so I hope that's not it. My BC is fit, weighs about 45 lbs and is 2 years, 3 months. Thanks in advance. Gary
  4. Here is a link to the Castor & Pollux Web Site... Organix Dog Food Enjoy...! Gary
  5. I have found Castor & Pollus Organix Dog Food to be excellent. Other foods thatI have used and recommend are Timberwolf Organics, Solid Gold MMilleneum, Innova, and Wellness. I belive my dog enjoys Organix the most. Great Protein and high fat content...
  6. Hi all. A local pet store recently started selling Organix dog food. Here is the link to their web page: http://www.organixdogfood.com Great ingredients. I've started using it and my BC really enjoys it. He used to take his time eating and now finishes up soon after I fill his dish. Has anyone else tried this? I would say that I recommend it at this time. High protein, organic ingredients, good taste... Hoo Fighter
