All about Elly
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’.

I might be small and a lightweight, but I am mighty! My mom loves my personality because I'm fearless! As I grow I'm learning and becoming smarter everyday! I make up for my smarts in my looks!
My favourite toy is my penquin and love to play fetch with my family! I love doing laps around the family room obstacle course. I love to cuddle and give kisses. I sleep with my mom and dad and I like to sleep in!
I love going for walks but not if it is too cold out, I'm a bit of a princess. I love having a tubby and going to the groomers!
June 2006 Update
I have a new baby brother!!! His name is Jed and he is the "puppy of the month" for June 2006! I'm happy sometimes that I have a playmate but other times I just like to be on my own doing my own thing! I am definetly the "good" dog in the house, hopefully some of my finer traits will rub off on the little devil!
I love going for car rides they are my favourite, I do this really fancy dance to let my Mom & Dad know that I would like to come along for the ride, they usually fall for it!
Other than that not much else going on..you know the usual, eat, drink, sleep & I'm happy!
