HD and ED results

Today we got the official HD and ED results from Eoos.
As expected it was not good at all: HD C and ED grade 3 (both sides)...
Eoos wil spend her life with us as beloved pet, as these results make her not fit for breeding. We hope to keep her in shape with limited excersise and a supplement containing Glucosamine, Chondroitine and MSM.
There won't be any Chow Chow pups born at our pace, at least for the next years.

Next week Endo's ellbows will be examined. If his ellbows are as bad, it will be the end of our small contribution to the Chow Chow breed...

Ari in the snow

Winter came early this year, freezing weather and snow!
Ari never saw snow before, he likes it :-)
Today I took some nice pictures of him in the garden, playing with his snowy tennisball:Pekingese Ari in the snowPekingese Ari in the snowI thought this was the best picture of Ari today, just before he came back inside, snow still on his snoutPekingees Ariyou can see all pictures in our Picasa webalbum

Last Monday we went to the vet with Eoos, her eyes were tearing again. We thought her tear duckts were blocked, and she was sedated to flush them. But it turned out she had a little curl in her eyelid, entropion, and she got surgery right away. While she was sedated the vet also took X-rays from hips and ellbows, for official HD and ED results. Her hips look allright, but her ellbows not :-(
We don't have the official results yet, but if they are what the vet suspects, Eoos is not fit for breeding, so our breeding days might be over.
After this we ended up in the worst evening traffic jam ever, so the drive home was not a bit more than an hour, but 4 1/2 hours!

Poor Eoos wears an Elizabethan collar now and that while she is in heat too, life ain't easy for a young Chow Chow... And neither for her owners...
