    We tried to avoid moving them when it got below -20, as I suspected they'd be more brittle. They do eventually get cracks after 7-8 years, but I'm pretty sure that's because of the tractor operator,...

    And it's not just what our vet referred to as "leaky bitch" syndrome?* Older spayed bitches often get a bit leaky, and it can be corrected with a cheap regular hormone pill....whose name escapes me,...
