Don't know anything about the Welsh, but I never met a Brittany I didn't like.

Visited the San Diego Zoo last week. They have an "Animal Ambassador" program that pairs wild animals with domestic dogs. This is a male cheetah with a female Husky mix. As luck would have it, the cheetah does not eat the dog! We were told that pairings usually happen before 6 months, but that these two were both more than a year old when they met.

Edit - for some reason, picasa seems to strip out any edits when I upload files, so these are RAW images. Probably something to do with the fact that I don't really know how to use photoshop.

I hear they like to steal beef.


@dcg, that is pretty dang cool. Dogs are great. What was the zoo's reason for the pairings? Simple companionship?

^I believe so. Apparently they're both part of a "backstage pass" exhibit where visitors are able to interact with the animals. Found a bit of additional info on the pair:

Probably works better with cheetahs than it would with jaguars smile.gif

My boxer pulled a tendon in her leg and I've been keeping her off walks until it heals. Yesterday she didn't eat at all. Is this a normal thing or should I be worried? She ate the glucosamine treat i gave her and isn't vomiting or anything as far as I can tell

It's settled then, if you get the Welsh Spaniel, you're naming it Taffy.

How do you know it is a pulled tendon?

 

She's eating now?

yeah she started eating.

It was a pulled tendon or a ligament I'm pretty sure. She was favoring one leg and limping, but she seemed to be able to stand on all four. I've been making her rest and she's improving.

I'd love to get a German Shepherd - do any of you know someone who got a German Shepherd from the monastery of New Skete?

that great, the Boxer has its tail docked at the first few days of age, but in the early 90s a British Boxer breeder and geneticist thought he would try and introduce a bobtail gene into the Boxer by crossing them with Pembroke Welsh Corgis. For the most part, he succeeded.thanks

^^ They breed showline/companion dogs. In general, the dog are okay, but I believe (you will have to confirm this) the program is less than it was in the '70s and '80s.

 

Why buy there? Romance? Like any breed, the search for a good GSD will require a lot of research, verification of health certs, travel, and some luck.

 

What do you want out of this dog?
