Golden Retrievers are the most popular dogs in the US

Hip dysplasia is a growing disease in younger dogs of virtually every breed. This can be a serious problem that will limit the physical activity of your Golden. Although many Golden Retriever owners don’t realize it, hip dysplasia is something that dogs inherit from their parents and gets worse with age.

As a loving Pet Parent, you will want to be aware of the signs to watch for with your beloved Golden Retriever dog.

The American Kennel Associations suggests:

Treating Hip Dysplasia in Dogs

  1. Weight reduction to take the stress off of the hips.
  2. Exercise restriction, especially on hard surfaces.

hello from beautiful Montana,

Thanks for the insightful article. You are so right, this has been an anxious time for all of us.

After our second vaccine, we felt safe in going out for breakfast. However, still grateful for those who wore masks and kept the social distance.

Perhaps this is the new normal.

Hello from beautiful Montana,

Ahhh, if I only had a nickel for everyone who said I was "lucky, blessed, fortunate, had help, knew somebody to help me" etc. I would indeed be a rich woman.

The real story is that I am all of those things, but I am also extremely hard worker who gets up early and stays focused and does the work necessary.

keep writing and I will keep reading.

hello from beautiful Montana,

I confess, I tend to look at the three minute articles first. I figure if I have more than three minutes to spare, I should be writing my own article!

Keep writing and I will keep reading.

Hello from beautiful Montana,

So strange to look down and see my mother's hands coming out of my sweater sleeves!

What, how could this have happened?

Just as hse told me when she was my age, "I am surprised every time I pass a mirror and see an old lady. Inside I am still a young and vibrant woman."

Keep writing and I will keep reading.
