Hello - my husband and I just lost our Doberman Stryder whom we rescued from a horrible situation where he was chained outside in November when his owner was taken to jail and never bothered to tell anyone about his dog. After a few weeks someone finally called the human society - by then he was only 63 lbs at 2 years old and covered in frost bite (poor boy). At that time we were looking at getting a puppy but when I saw him I knew that rescuing him was the right thing to do. Well after 6 great years with him he developed Cardio Myopathy this Christmas and was doing very good on the meds but after a few months he had a heart attack and we lost him. I have never experience this much sadness in my life as Stryder was the most amazing dog ever and he is missed more than every. Anyways enough sadness.... my puppy days are finally here!! He was cropped just this past Thursday by a very well known vet Dr Staples in London Ontario who is mentioned on here quite a bit and he did a great job! Since we never had to do the posting thing I am very worried that we are going to do it wrong. Dr Staples said that when his sutures come out next week he will teach us how to crop but I was wondering if there was someone out there who could give us some help to ensure we tape them right. Also I live in the Guelph Ontario area and would be meet up.
