The Dachshund Dog Breed, The Sausage Dog!

The Dachshund Dog Breed, The Sausage Dog!

Everybody loves this comical breed, you cannot help but smile when you see one moving along in their characteristic style … The Sausage Dog. They are of course one of the group of dogs which have German origins, this is borne out in the two words in the name dachs hund which literally means “badger dog” in German. Now you would be forgiven in wondering how the average Dachshund you see in the street could possibly tackle a badger it would seem much more likely that the badger would chase away the Dachshund! The answer of course is that most Dachshunds you see are Miniature Dachshunds and there is a standard variety which is very much larger and could well take on a badger and win.

Seborrhea and Seborrheic Dermatitis

Seborrhea and Seborrheic Dermatitis

Does your dog stink? Is he always scratching? Even though you just gave him a bath he starts to smell again almost straight away. The smell permeates your home, gets on your hands and clothes. It puts you off hugging him.

This might be Seborrhea, a common problem in dogs, particularly in some breeds. The condition is quite common in Cocker Spaniels, West Highland White Terriers, German Shepherds and Shar-Peis but any breed or cross breed can suffer from this. The signs of seborrhea can include excessive body odour, itchiness, an oily feel to the skin, thickened skin, reddening of the skin and sometimes dark pigmentation.

The Birman Cat Breed

The Birman Cat Breed

I love cats but I have never bought a pedigree cat in my life, I have always adopted strays brought to my clinic who needed help and now that I live in a new country I continue to do so, in fact I have four of them at my house with me right now. To be clear I am not any sort of saint { Far from it! } but I now have a very good life, and at the end of the day it was the cats and dogs of the UK who were treated at my clinic over the years who gave me what I now possess, so it is only right I should show respect to the animals that I encounter here. Of course the cats that live here with me and those in my past are all “ Moggies “ but today’s question is which cat breed would I personally choose if I had the choice?
