All about Dallas (Sir Dallas Too)
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’.

Dallas was a wonderful pet. He sired many girls and boys. All were as beautiful
as he was. He was loyal, had a good temperment and loved to sit on my knee.
He went to Rainbow Bridge in November 28, 2002 after a short fight with
Cushings Syndrome. His favorite toy was a stuffed squeek toy ball that he
treasured for several years. He fathered six different litters. He died intact.
He loved cats and small furry animals. He lived for 10 years with his mate,
Sachi, who has surived him. He had a wonderful smile and he smiled on
command. We miss him so much.
