Thank you for visiting my website.

Below are the comments from 2003 in my old guestbook. 

please tell how to diagnose Systemic lupus erythematosus? How to treat it? and why a vet might recommend exploratory surgery?

Comments: I have two Berners, a 3-1/2 year old who had osteosarcoma, an amputation, and chemotherapy beginning in January, 2003, and concluding in May. He is clear. Thanks for the info I found about his health when I needed it. Star, just a year old on July 6, was diagnosed with steriod responsive meningitis and is currently on prednisone. As a result of her medication and immune system, she has now developed moist pyoderma, for which I found more info on your website. Thanks for the help!

Comments: We just adopted Sherlock a rescue from the animal shelter. Was taken from abusive owners in a bad condition with severe ear problem that required removal of ear canal. Supposedly a success, is still on medication. He was very underweight, but seems to be doing better and despite all his problems is such a wonderful boy, we are happy we found him. Hopefully only good times ahead of him, he is 3 years old. Love to hear from any of you, new to this breed, have 2 Border Collies also.

Comments: I am interested in purchasing a female puppy. I have done a lot of research on the breed and own 2 males that are crossbreeds. My oldest male was gave to my son as a pup. I purchased a purebred red and white border collie to breed a few years later and have kept 2 puppies, one male and one female that are spayed and neutered. I lost my female border collie to cancer recently and would really like to get a bernese. My son was killed in 95 so my dogs are my children. I have had dogs all of my life and we own a cattle ranch so I was more apt to stick with the working dogs. My dogs are my companion and my partner. We run about 64 sections of land so there is a lot of country to cover when gathering cattle. I have had a lot of demand for my pups in the past and had 4 people waiting for my next litter until my female got sick. I miss her terribly and would like to get a pup to take her place. I am also very interested in the search and rescue training. My husband and I are active members of our county search and rescue. I have also been very interested in the agility training. I would greatly appreciate any information you might have. Thank you for your time. Ronnie

Comments: I have two lovely Berners, Oscar who is 5 1/2 and Leo who is 2 1/2. They are the best companions and I am so happy we have discovered this wonderful breed. Last year Oscar had a spinal accident caused by an embolism and his hindquarters were totally paralysed for several weeks, but gradually with physio and lots of exercise, he is now walking well (although a bit crooked and sometimes when he gets excited his hind-quarters collapse, but he just picks himself up again) He has a good life as does his lovely brother Leo. I walk them twice a day most days. I thank you for your wonderful web site - I wish I'd discovered it earlier. I will be a regular visitor as I have found the information invaluable. thank you !!
