Thank you for visiting my website.

Below are the comments from 2004 in my old guestbook. 

Hi: We're here signing your guestbook. We arrived at your site while looking into our 8-year-old, male berner's skin problems. Chazy tore his right rear ACL last March and had no hair grow back on his leg for several months. He went on thyroid supplementation. His hair grew back. Now he's losing hair on his back and shoulders. Hair there is brittle. Skin is dry but scaly, a bit scabby. Our vet checked his T3 & T4 (marginally high) levels and put him on a 10-day course of antibiotics (2500 cc per diem cypro)for a skin infection. We're not sure of much improvement, but any improvement would probably take some time to become evident. We're starting to look through the house for allergens. His new dog bed stuffed with cedar chips, his breath mints, his Pet tabs, Armstrong's tile floor cleaner, and Biospot rather than Advantage, are all changes in his farm and country environment over the past year. He's always had a sensitive stomach, even to Lamb and rice diets, so he's always been on Iam's Adult Chunks with boiled hamburger. We're gonna quit the Pet tabs and breath mints and replace his cedar stuffing with pine chips. Anyway, thanks for letting us sign your guestbook. Regards, Susan and Ron

Hi Robin, I have just brought home my BMD Pup called Cosmo. I am using your site to look up vaccinations becuase I do not want to over do it and it has been awhile since I have had a puppy. My boy is out of Santera Ellieanna V Crest and Stonehill's Inherit the wind. Hope all is well up in Canada. James

Hi! I haven't been in touch for a while but I thought I'd sign the guest book to tell you how much we enjoy the website. It's useful in more ways than I can write here and great fun as well. Thanks! Helen.

Your website is very informative. I am just beginning my research on the BMD and am extremely interested in the breed as a family companion and possibly showing. Thank you for all your efforts. Lorraine Boyd (nee Cowan) - are we related? I'm from the Minden/Haliburton area of Ontario.
