My Christmas present

might seem just a tad strange to some, but to those who have niggling doubts and concerns that something might be wrong with one of their dogs, you will understand I am sure

Brady will be 5 months old next week and he was returned at 10 weeks for house breaking issues (after a few 'procedures' were performed to see if there was a physical problem). He has been my pup pup since shortly thereafter and while I have not had issues with house breaking, his urine was colorless and he seemed to be outputting way more than his input would call for - to the point his field instructor laughs and says we should feed him gold to how much we get back

Anyhow, my very best Christmas present is seeing yellow snow and less volume !! I was planning on seeing about tests after giving his system time to mature (I was thinking 6 months), but now I am happy to be seeing yellow snow for Christmas LOL

That's great news!

My Christmas present was that Casper was able to sit and stay for his Christmas picture.

That is awesome Sharon - and I completely understand!

Bertie is the same deal.... though he just had one bad evening where he not only had his first accident ever, but he had nonstop leakage to the point I was convinced he had a UTI. He was tested, but the vet declared his pee was perfect. If pee can be perfect...

He hasn't had any accidents since, but he constantly has to go outside. And it is very dilluted. >.<

I'm glad that it gets better.

That's great!

I saw yellow snow just a few minutes ago....not sure I'm happy that we have snow when trying to potty train a puppy; however, he would not potty in the pouring rain this morning, so I guess in that respect snow is OK.

LOL - Oh I know that effort - I spent some time today trying to get 4 goldens, including 4 1/2 month old Brady,

1) Stationary
2) Looking, at the camera
3) Eyes open (Towhee seems to think camera = close your eyes and/or squint)
4) Not looking like they have lemons in their mouths

LOL - a few outtakes. And that beat up blankie goes everywhere Brady goes - part of why its so beat up I guess
