I just wanted to thank everyone for the advice about Val and her skin
spots.  Antibacterial soap and antibiotics seem to be taking care of the
problem - at the very least she's not going crazy itching and scratching.

The second thanks was to the recommendation for the sock o' beans method
from the Monks of New Skete.  This has really worked wonders around the
house for the last several days.  I know this is probably a FAQ, but could
someone send me the full title of the book?  I'd like to go to the
bookstore with a little something more than "You know that dog book by
those monks."

Many thanks from Lisa + Val

 
 
 

Thanks and Thanks again!

Actually, that would probably work just fine.  There aren't THAT
many dog books written by monks ;-).

The second book is really _The Art of Raising a Puppy_.  Both are
highly recommended.  My *only* caveat is that their experience is
with German Shepherd Dogs, and a little of their stuff becomes
breed specific, esp. wrt to behavior.

Regarding the Monks....

It seems as it if would be a very pleasant life, spending
one's days involved in spiritual meditation and the
raising of dogs (GSDs).

Has anyone ever been to the monastery?  I'd be interested
in learning of your impressions of the monks and their
lifestyle.

Is there a convent for women Lab owners? :-)

 
 
 

Thanks and Thanks again!

Janice,

If you find a convent for us, count me in.  I am coming back as a Monk Of
New Skete in my next life.  Definately.

Hey ladies,
there is a convent right next door to the Monastery at New Skete and they
work the dogs too.  I can't remember the name of the lady but one of the
former nuns is now writing for Dog World.  I think that it is Theresa
with an Italian last name.  She wrote an article a few issues back about
having multiple dogs.

Now I don't expect all the women of this board to run to take Holy Orders
but wouldn't it be great to visit and maybe do a "doggie retreat" there!?!?
