Hello, I am new to the forum, and I am sooooo excited to be a part of it!!! I have very few people near me I can talk to about my love of these dogs and I am excited to meet all of you. I want to use this forum to learn all I can about being a good breeder as well as work hard in the show ring. I may take up Obedience or Agility later but right now I am wanting to show confirmation. I have had a rough start of it so far, and decided I need to step back for a bit, then try again, so here I am! I have/had a toy that was being shown AKC and earned 1 point, then came up lame, took her to the vet and she was diagnosed with LCP and possibly a couple other things that the Ortho specialist is going to be looking for. So I pulled her and she is scheduled for FHO and spay surgery. But, she is well loved and will remain with us as our very much loved family member.
