An "oldie" just popping in to say Hi!

Post by MelB » Wed Apr 20, 2022 11:22 am

It's been a long time since I last popped by.

We have Cindy (Blufawn Cinnamon) who will be 12 next month. Some may remember she was born with severe hip dysplasia (scored 75) & had arthritis by 18 months. Well, she's still going, still nutty and still runs about the garden as if she's a puppy. She loves her walks but gets a bit stiff after. Doesn't jump up on the bed as often and sometimes asks for a "lift" up the stairs to bed at night but flies up them most other times (when she's not in stealth mode, searching for empty loo roll tubes :lol: ).

Given her advancing years we're starting to think about the inevitable although, hopefully, quite a way in the future yet. Wondering who is breeding (to good, healthy standards) and how much the breed has changed over 12 years.

Generally, popping in to say "Hi"

Heya! Long time, no see! I'm glad to hear Cindy is still going well, even after all these years. A few of us "oldies" are still around, but a lot of breeders/owners disappeared over the years (or moved over to the Facebook groups instead). I haven't been keeping up with the forum much lately, since we have a lot of ongoing construction work at our new property and not much freetime, but I stop by to check in now and then... a few of the older breeders are still breeding, and the breed is still going strong overall with quite a few new/upcoming breeders as well. :)
