All about Ranger
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'm 2 years old, I am a big boy now, my owner Danno tell me so everyday.
I love to chew (gently)on people wrist even though they tell me not too, but when daddy (my owner) says no I do listen, is my trainer and a good one too, as a matter of fact he is the best trainer a dog can have.
The game I love most is playing with my dad when he pitch me my favourite toy around.
I don't go anywhere, or I should say my dad doesn't go anywhere without taking me along.
My worst nightmare is when daddy took me to the vet and had my surgery so I can not make any babies, I was mad at him for 3 days, but now I'm OK, I forgive him, because he take good care of me everyday.
My most cherished memory, is when I was honoured by the The Pantheon québécois of the animals in 2001 for the exceptional work accomplished at Ground Zero in NY in search of survivors.
My owner, Danno's most cherished memory with me, is when he came to get me!!!
We are now a team we do everything together, well almost everything, if you know what I mean.... We've been through so much together since the search at the World Trade Center rubble that people call us the Ranger-Danno Team.
