I always enjoy seeing your avatar. I hope he does not suffer from HD. He´s ten years old now?
We had an American-Canadian Shepherd. She was rescued from a drinker who abused her and I was asked If I could take care of her. She got to the age of
15 and was a realy gently dog. My father ran a small shop in our town and she was lying on the doorstep to the private rooms, every day. She was so

at all in those dry foods. The smell is disgusting and you can shower for two days, still smell like a bag of dryfood. I have to go there four times a
