Thanks for that. Very useful. Photobucket is a right pain.

I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, breeder, groomer or behaviourist. It is simply my experience of raising pups in a way that seems to make sense.

Dean has now helpfully added a direct link to the post image site on left hand side below this text box - at least I think it was Dean :)
