    I enjoyed the article and made the dogs sound like great companions despite the warnings. Actually the warning that caused the most concern for me was the issue of bloat. Loved our Danes but always...

    Thanks every one for the responses. And especially for the folks who suggest careful research and deliberation. I promise my post here was just a whim based on another thread. I would not use this...
  11. Spin off from Dog Show thread...Bouvier des Flandres

    Just curious...always interested in 'new to me' breeds as possible future dog...we are not very breed loyal. In fact when I have a 'heart' dog, I am somewhat afraid to get another.

    No worries -- I had never looked closely at his papers since never planned to breed -- I just fell for him as a puppy. This thread got me digging for them and I was afraid I had thrown them away....

    Interesting. My niece just a semester abroad and I feel like I should send her on a fact finding mission! Perhaps with request to find and bring me an authentic "heeler".
