We now have a Microchip Scanner.... testing we discovered one dog that had been chipped didn't register on the scanner...the chip had 'gone' or stopped working. So after a visit to the vet (who also couldn't find it) a new chip was inserted.
So, if you would like your dog's chip checked please ask.
When using it at the weekend we found most dogs showed concern having the scanner placed near their neck... So, Pat suggested we do this as a training class exercise.... so we will do this by passing the scanner round to a difference class each week.
“Dogs’ lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know
the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog, and there’s going to be
great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to
share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can’t support the
illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There’s such beauty
in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always
aware it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we
do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and for the
mistakes we make because of those illusions.”
When seeking out information on diet, and other matters relating to
your dog's well-being, and where advice is offered as the result of research,
than if possible check out who funded the research -research for the most part
will find in favour of the company funding it.

Bloat or GDV
While most people have probably heard of 'bloat', you may not know the symptoms and signs.
The ASPCA state that "bloat refers to a life-threatening condition that requires immediate veterinary care known as gastric dilation-volvulus (GDV), gastric torsion and twisted stomach. This condition can cause rapid clinical signs and death in several hours." Causes vary greatly, but some factors can include rapid eating, overeating, heavy exercise after eating, fearful temperament and stress. Bloat also mainly affects large, deep-chested breeds.
