I will be picking up my Springer puppy in exactly one week. I find my searches on food/training/etc. leading me to this forum often, so thought I would give it a go. A couple of months ago, my 2 year old springer died of kidney failure about a month after our first agility trial... I am still devastated at losing her, but am not happy about living in a dog-less house. It wasn't so long ago that she was a puppy that I've forgotten what it was like and feel considerably prepared for the puppy stage, definitely more than I was for the previous one. But now, I am also a little paranoid and make sure this one stays safe.
Despite all the many tests, we never found a cause for the kidney failure, though the common consensus suggested that it was most likely a birth defect.
I am very excited about picking up the new puppy, Magic. I'm planning on working with him in agility, barn hunt, nosework and we'll give dock diving a try, and we'll throw in some obedience along the way ;)
