    The Saint Bernard was founded in 980 AD by St. Bernard de Menthon and bred by monks, most likely by crossing the ancient Tibetan mastiff with the Great Dane, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog and the Great Pyrenees. The first Saint Bernards were of the shorthaired variety, as the longhaired variety's coat tended to collect icicles. They were used by the Hospice, a refuge for travelers through the dangerous Alpine pass between Switzerland and Italy. In the middle of the seventeenth century, the Saint Bernard became popular as a rescue dog working to save people from avalanches in the snowy passes near the Hospice. The dogs are able to smell a person under many feet of snow. They have saved thousands of people searching out and finding lost or injured travelers. The dogs would work in packs looking for the victims. When found they would lick and lie down with them in order to keep them warm. While a dog or more would lie with the body(s), another dog would head back to the Hospice to alert them that they found the humans. A full rescue team would then be sent out. The Saint Bernard has also been known to be able to predict storms and avalanches. This may be possible because of the dog's ability to hear very low-frequency sounds which humans cannot. The Saint Bernard was recognized by the AKC in 1885. Some of the Saint Bernard's talents are search and rescue, guard dog, watchdog and carting.

    Three Legged AKC Champion Vizsla Cancer Survivor

    in Pets

    Meet Bart, the award winning three legged AKC champion!
    Tune in to hear Darcy Duval talk about her dog Bart, a 3-year osteosarcoma survivor and world-famous AKC show champion and master hunting dog who was the first Vizsla in history to have accomplished this title (start to finish) on 3 legs.
    Along with Bart we'll meet his long-time veterinarian, Dr. Abby Huggins, DVM, from Terrell Mill Animal Hospital in Marietta, Georgia, who discovered Bart's osteosarcoma in June, 2008. Dr. Huggins has worked with Bart since he was two months old. She graduated from Duke University in 1997 with a BS in marine biology and received her DVM from the Ohio State University in 2001, where she was inducted into Phi Zeta, the national verterinary honors society. Dr. Huggin's veterinary interests include soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology, and doing her part in promoting the human-animal bond.
    About Bart:
    In 2008, three year-old Bart was going along his daily life practicing for field trials, hunting and running up to 16 miles with his Mom Darcy. After a persistent limp wouldn't go away with R&R, Darcy took Bart to Dr. Huggins, his regular vet, who gave them the sad news that Bart had osteosarcoma growing in his scapula.
    Three years later, Bart is still in remission! Nothing slows Bart down and his accomplishments are many. See this Tripawds discussion forum topic for complete details and to post your questions, or join us in the Tripawds Chat during the show.

    in Pets

       This show is being run by a large group of American Rottweiler Club  members that wish to discuss the proposed revision to the AKC Rottweiler Breed Standard.  We believe that a correct natural tailed Rottweiler should be permitted to compete along side a correct docked tailed Rottweiler.

    Join us and share your comments or questions.  We want YOU to let US know just how you feel, be it pro or con.  You will be treated with equal respect.  No derrogatory comments or flames.
