@yodelma Yes, the information about the flu coming in from imported dogs was alarming. What struck me was that the dogs (in question) were properly vetted and quarantined - and they still missed it. Perhaps the receiving vets weren't informed from the sending vets (beware: potential flu carriers)...
Thanks for all the replies! Pugs have the best expressions 😃
Kipawa - I try to keep all of my birds unclipped as i like to see them fly 🙂 I take them out on harnesses and flightlines in the summer to get some real flying time in, they love it!! I have one poor conure who had her wing mutilated by someone trying to clip without knowing what they were doing. She drops like a stone if she tries to fly, and the wing wont ever grow back so she will never fly again, poor Lola 😞
AJs Human - Ruby wont have all of her colours through until she is about 3 (she's 6 months now). She should get much more vibrant colours 🙂
Tanza - Leaving tomorrow at about 8:30 for Crufts, its just 45 mins down the motorway for me - a local one!
