Like most parents, as my children grew up, I wanted to give them the world on a string. For most of us, our desires far exceed our capacity to fulfill them. I wonder if that sends the wrong message.
Do you remember being told or telling a rival to “pick on someone your own size?” As parents, it’s easy to forget our children are not our size, and confuse punishment with discipline.
Maybe it's because of the beauty of this area but the people here are among the friendliest, most good-natured, and warm-hearted that I have met anywhere.
Like any addition to your family, there is no guarantee that a puppy will be born healthy or stay healthy throughout his life. That was the case with Bailey. Idiopathic epilepsy often begins when a dog is between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old. Bailey’s seizures started in March 2012 when he was 4 1/2 years old.
