Hello everyone! My friend told me about this site, so I decided to join. My name is Leslie, and I just graduated from Grapevine High School. I'm 18 years old, and love dogs. Here is one of my dogs on dogster, but I have lots more. I'll give you the link once I have them up.
Hi! Welcome! I tried to view your dogster page, but there was no picture! Don't know what happened. Anyway, would love to see it sometime. Judging by your screen name I'm guessing you have brittanys. My husbands favorites! He'll want to see pics too! We have an adopted shep. mix, but maybe someday we'll have a brittany! :)
Hello and a hardy welcome to you...I have an old brittney...his name is topper...after much back and forth the past few months my hubby and i are serious about putting topper down...he has been a wonderful dog..well over 12 and severly over weight. But he is also loaded with tumors and the vet wanted to operate like 2 years ago and he at that time had over 30 spots to operate. We decided not to put him through it..but he is now coughing ( his heart falure) and at times he sits and just shakes..I think he is in pain...so...after reading Melanies deal I talked to hubby again and this time we are going through with making an appointment. We are heart sick...but cant stand to watch him any more..He is a good dog..I could not ask for better...but with the change in him ev en over the last few weeks we are concerned. I know that any one with brittneys will understand how great they can be..My ex used to hunt with Topper and our last German Shorthaired pointer...he and I used to breed then over 15 years ago..But he is long gone (lol) and now I have what I always wanted growing up...purebred German Shepherd. 4 in fact now..with one to be re homed soon..We also have 2 mini schnauzers. But old topper was our oldest and best behaved dog. I hope that you have tons of good times with your brittney and I hope that you enjoy this site as well..Take care and have a safe holiday weekend
Very sorry to hear about Topper. He is an old dog though. Brittanys only live 12-13 years anyway, and I'm sure you are doing what you can with him. We had a Brittany, Auggie, who lived to be 13 years old. We had to put him down because he had CHD, and at his age we didn't want to put him through the surgery.
Grapeving High School is a school in north Texas. It is actually rated in the top 100 schools in the USA.
Thanks for all the nice welcomes! I'm glad to be here!
Welcome. I'm a former Brittany owner. What a cool breed..in my opinion the ultimate for hunting things with wings. Just curious..whats the official name of the breed?? Brittany or Brittany Spaniel...thought I heard some debate on Westminster years ago...but cannot remember which is the proper name...or both? Again, welcome to TP.
