Here's a link to order a test kit for vWD. They mail some swabs to you, you swab the dogs' mouths, and then mail the swabs back. You'll know within a very short matter of time whether or not they...

Thanks John! I'm down in Medford. It's kind of weird to be living in a state with so many reputable breeders/resources -- I'm not used to that. Also a bunch of Fenzi students around here, which is...

I saw the WSU holter and was considering driving up there for that. Don't know if it would be any less expensive if I went and picked it up, rather than having it shipped?
