Re: Beware of Spencer's Mountain Aussies in MA

I notice that the dogs on the Spencer's Mountain website do not have hip or elbow evaluations listed on the OFA website. It's possible that the results were not made public. It's possible that they use PennHip or some other method of checking for hip dysplasia or elbow problems. A few have OFA eye e...

Re: A new side kick for Toby and I

Congratulations, Rog! Houdini is a very handsome young lad -- nice masculine head, especially! (Even with the demon eyes, lol!)

What does Toby think? Showing the new kid all the ropes and having fun with him.

May you all have many happy times (and years!) together.

Re: Authority Healthy Weight and Joint Support Turkey and Chickpea Formula dog food

Some of the grainfree kibbles can lead to flatulence or ill-formed stools if the dog's system doesn't handle a particular grain replacer (here the chickpeas, presumably) well. If you are trying to get a useful dose of whatever joint support is in the food, you'll need to figure out how much she woul...

Re: Authority Healthy Weight and Joint Support Turkey and Chickpea Formula dog food

This topic is being moved to Community because the main board is for Australian shepherds. Not "minis" be they miniature American shepherds, miniature Australian shepherds, miniature Schnauzers or any other breed that is not an Australian shepherd.

Re: What do you think about getting a dog with a shortened lifespan

I figure if I'm not the one who will be living with the dog, my opinion doesn't matter much. Especially after the purchase is made since the dog doesn't have much say in any decisions and there is no point in alienating a friend by continuing to bitch about a choice they made. If the owner feels the...

Re: Afraid of other Dogs - Help!

Hi Jaci, I'm sorry to hear your mini has some issues. From your descriptions, I think this forum is not particularly appropriate for you. We can't see what you and your dog are doing, so giving advice on serious aggression issues is something we can't really do. Words have different meanings, so one...

I don't think Pat is active on the board any more. You may want to find her another way. Have you tried going to her website (link above) and using the contact information there?

Re: Red Merel

Hi Danny, I deleted your duplicate posts because it gets confusing to have the same conversation going on in several places. What do you want in an Aussie beyond color and gender? Most breeders need to know a bit more about what you want/need in a dog. Those of us who don't breed need to know a bit ...

Re: Please Help Our Mini Win Purina Pet Star 2016

Hi Jon, Your topic was moved to Community because it has nothing to do with Australian shepherds. This board clearly states that it is for Australian shepherds and does not consider "miniature Australian shepherds" or Miniature American shepherds to be Australian shepherds. Thanks in advan...

Re: Help Kona!!!

Hi Kona's owner. I'm speaking as a member of the community here, rather than as a moderator. I value the community we once had here and rue its slow decline. If you want the support of the community, you need to become a member of the community. That would include introducing yourself, and your dog,...

Re: Video shoot

Theia looks great in the video. I like the look of the toys and that she was able to pick them up on the run instead of having to stop to get her mouth on them. That's one of my priorities in toys because I think the heavy braking and pouncing can be hard on the shoulders over a lifetime. I much pre...

Re: Upset stomach after using Trifexis on a Mini

Personally I've read enough bad stories about Trifexis that I'd be concerned no matter what breed of dog I owned. I would contact my vet or emergency vet for advice. And I'd talk, whether on-line or by phone, with people who owned my breed. Although Aussies and minis share some characteristics, they...

Re: How to effectively clean up messy poop in pants hair

The joys of long-haired dogs! I don't have problems with my current two, even with the male's full britches (nickname is Mr. Fancypants), so I have no pictures. My first Aussie was a spayed girl with a boatload of hair. I often just whacked multiple inches of hair off her skirts when she was younger...
