Road's End Croissant Amande

I had to find my sweet little girl Croissant Amande a new mom.
Croissant  remained too small for me to add her to my breeding girls.
Here her new mom, who already adopted preciously an older Road's End girl,-  picking her up, and at the Portland/Oregon airport , destination Texas.
Too much cuteness not to post.

10 Day Old Papillon Puppies

Mimi's babes are now 10 days old.
Big sis is still the more sizable one, but little brother is making leaps to catch up.
At about 4 weeks of age, they will start to be "little dogs".
Both of them are white/red/sable, none of them available yet, but the little boy may be soon available.
Be patient.

Got to let off some steam here...... (A Facebook Post)
Although I am very saddened about this little girl's condition, I have to bring up her story to clear the facts, as I was the breeder of this Pap, accused right away, and told what I should- and not should have done!!
I do appreciate the fact that my name was not mentioned, never the less, there are plenty of folks out there who know about Road's End Papillons , and know the fact that this little girl came from my kennel.
Please click on these links below and get informed.
Do not judge so quickly on grounds not researched properly.
There are plenty of sites to visit on line with good information.

The cause of SARDS is unknown at this time. It has been shown that it is not an inherited (genetic) disorder. It is currently thought that it is a toxic reaction in the retina possibly related to fat bi-products, hormonal or immune-mediated causes.
Autoimmune diseases are linked to possible over -vaccination, and I assume that this little girl , which traveled many times in her life to Mexico , had received plenty of booster vaccines for national traveling.
Fat bi- products are diet linked.

Sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome (SARDS) is a retinal disorder of unknown cause that results in an acute onset of permanent blindness in adult dogs. ... There is no evidence to suggest that this disease is hereditary and there is not any known means of preventing the condition.

Below are her parents, my seniors. Both have good eye vision at 12 + 13 years.

Our little Barti the Mud Lover:

Don't Fall for the 'Grain-Free' Trick Pulled by Some Pet Food Makers-by Dr. Becker

Story at-a-glance

  • Conventional veterinarians often give grain-free diets for dogs a thumbs down; holistic vets like me believe they represent optimal nutrition for most dogs
  • Dogs have no biological requirement for carbohydrates, and grains are carbohydrates. Canines are carnivores whose bodies are designed to eat animal flesh and fat, not starch, which turns to sugar in your dog’s body
  • Dry dog food can be grain-free, but it can’t be carb-free because carbohydrates are required to form kibble. Many grain-free foods have a higher starch content than regular foods.
  • The Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) does not require starch content to be listed on a pet food label, so I recommend calculating the amount of starch you are feeding with simple math
  • The optimal diet for healthy dogs is meat-based and raw, grain-free, moisture-rich, living and fresh
