All about Brandi
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. I'm Brandi. I came to live with my family when they found out I needed a home through the internet. I was shy at first and a little bit sick because of all the needles and operations I needed but I am great now. I love my mommy and daddy but my favorite is daddy because I'm his girl. I like to go for drives in the car, and play with my favourite rope toy. I like to run and get it, then they have to run and get it from me. My favourite spot of all is on the back of the couch. I can see what everyone is doing from there and it is hard for my sister Mira to catch me. I get ear infections all the time so my dad takes me to get my ears candled and it helps alot. I lie perfectly still because it feels so good. At night I sleep with my mom and dad. I like to be up on the pillow and wrap myself around their head. It bugs them sometimes because I snore, and talk in my sleep. I like to play the kissing game with my family. It's when we can see who can sneak a kiss without the other one seeing. I win alot. I am so glad I have my family. They love me alot. Thanks for stopping by.
