I will give a hearty amen to that article. I'm already researching breeders for my next Golden and another puppy addition will be 2 years away. I want to show and hopefully title my Golden I have now before I commit to start training another pup.

By clicking around her blog, I found the article that she wrote about CERF exams and the one paragraph summed it up well:

The exam itself includes two separate views of the eye by a vet ophthalmologist. She uses a magnifier and looks first at the shallowest layers of the eye to make sure there are no injuries, membranes, or ulcers; she looks at the lids and the lashes to make sure everything fits properly against the eye. Then she puts on a piece of headgear that looks like it belongs in a Dr. Seuss book about nighttime warfare, and also holds a magnifying lens in one hand (so she’s effectively creating a little spyglass), and then looks at the deeper structures in the retina and interior of the eye.

This has some really great information. I'm glad I saw this article before I found my breeder/puppy. The first thing I did after reading was let the breeders I was looking into know that I was looking at others as well. I don't have any deposits down yet or anything, but it does make sense as good etiquette to inform them. I was happy to hear they were excited and approved of the research I was doing into other breeders. So, good breeders will be understanding of this! It definitely should become a sticky imho.
