What is a dog?

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.

You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart.

You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

Interesting article

This is a very interesting article on stem cell therapy for elbow dysplasia.  Not a cure, but a way to ease pain. http://www.thestar.com/living/article/666233 And there is an interesting little side bar about Chris Zink.
