All about Cooper
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’.

Hi my name is Cooper.
The standard of the Eurasier will tell you that my breed doesn't have a strong hunting instinct! So far, so good, but I LOVE to hunt squirrels, and I never give up hope that maybe one day I'll get one of these little squicky creatures who seem to make fun of me!
Something else I love to do is swimming! I share my life with 2 Labradors and it might be their legacy to me that I really developped into a strong swimmer.
My most embarrassing moment as far in my young life : I got sprayed by a skunk....I thought it was a cat and chased it....well I got the bill for that one, and I had to get washed , which I hate!
Other than that I think life is wonderful, and I know my family loves me as much as I love them, we are a team!
