All about Winston Noble Beilschmidt
Limber Tail Syndrome (AKA cold tail, dead tail, broken wag) is quite common among some breeds of hunting dogs, such as Labradors, Golden Retrievers, Pointers, Setters, and Beagles. It is a condition in which the tail becomes limp and sometimes painful after exertion, particularly during inclement weather, swimming, or in an under-conditioned dog. It is a condition well-known to hunting dog owners and trainers, but not commonly seen by veterinarians. The syndrome is characterized by the swelling of the muscles at the base of the tail (the wagging muscles, which are also used heavily during swimming when the tail may serve as a rudder). These muscles are bound to the tail by a tight ring of connective tissue. As the muscles swell and expand, the connective tissue begins to serve as a tourniquet – cutting off normal blood flow.
When increased pressure within a confined space results in reduced blood flow, it is known as a ‘compartment syndrome’.

Winston Noble was a family member full of grace and dignity, loving, kind and generous, a "Gentle Giant". He never hurt any of his brothers and sisters, be they another dog or a housefull of cats, and strays showing up at his door were always invited in with a welcoming bark and a wag of his tail, him entertaining his guests until their owners arrived.
He is greatly and sadly missed, his immense presence and being missing from his home, and I truly look forward to the day when I will be reunited with my sweetheart at Rainbow Bridge.
Momma misses you, Big Handsome, and I thank God every day for the time we had together. I don't know what I did to deserve you, but I will be forever grateful that you were my special, wonderful companion and I know one day the tears will disappear and every thought of you will once again put a smile on my face and joy in my heart.
Rest in Peace Big Win!!!!! You can once again run and frolic and be pain free. The sound of thunder and a flash of lightning will never scare you again. "Yodel" at Dale all day, if it make's you happy, and eat lots of fresh, green grass. I LOVE YOU!!!
