All about Clipis
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’.

Go, the earth is calling you and taking you away
From who was your ideal, your God, your glory!
And I , your sad master,
Will I have you in the other life?
The other world!
The other world is the world of the pure spirit!
Will I find you again sweet and faithfull friend?
Will you be only a memory there?
A pure memory?
And this memory
Will it run to me waging it’s tail?
Will it lick the hand of my spirit?
Will it look again at my eyes?
And your dreams, where did they go?
I was your religion and your glory
And in me you dreamt of God,
My eyes were for you the window
To the other world.
If you could only now, my loyal companion,
How sad your God is because you are gone…
Your God will die some day as well!
When I found your fragile and wounded body your little eyes were still open and I had the feeling that you were trying to spy in my desires and that you were asking me: And now where are we going my master? Where are we going? Listen my poor friend, my faithfull follower and beliver, we will always and forever walk the earth and the heavens together cos you live in me.
Rest in peace my friend, rest in peace, worst is the luck of your God than yours. Gods cry, Gods cry when they loose their dogs that licked their hands, that looked at their eyes and that while looking at them asked them: And now where are we going my master? Where are we going?
In loving memory of my best friend,
