I just purchased a new registered herding dog parentage (border collie) puppy and have high hopes for her,.I used to raise border collies years ago before I suspended all operations here pretty much so Im back and Im finding there is so much I dont know and need to learn about wormers and shots for all of the animals... one of my cats has asthma of all things and she is the best mouser so everyday is a test of my knowledge and research, and not only that I have to redo all fencing and do house restoration so Ive become jill of all trades and master of none but Im trying ...

Yes, things seem to change everyday when it comes to animal husbandry. That's probably why they remain with us for so many years than they did in the past.
