    Ear cropping help

    I might be in the minority here but I love uncropped ears. Nothing against the cropped ones, they look great as well if well done. Y’all can say my dog looks like a hound if you want, that isn’t considered an insult where I live.

Your situation will someday change and a perfect pup will come your way when...

    Puppy vomiting

    Hope all goes well. Coco is 5 months. The only time she threw up it was yellow bile and wood pieces. we are outdoors a lot, had to keep a closer eye on what she was picking up. She seems to have outgrown the stick eating.
