AKC REGISTERED KENNEL NAME
Application for Breed-Specific Registered Name Prefix - From page 7 of the July, 2014 Board Minutes of AKC: "The AKC Board VOTED to INCREASE THE FEE for registering a kennel name with AKC from $100 for five years to $150 for five years, effective January 1, 2015."
It's a good time to submit those Kennel names before the fee increases!

Canine Hip Dysplasia: Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention
(this is a good read)
Hip dysplasia is one of the most common skeletal diseases in dogs and affects millions of dogs worldwide. As the disease progresses, a dog's hip joints degenerate, causing increased pain and mobility issues for the dog. If left untreated, a dog will eventually be unable to use his/her hind legs and suffer extreme pain. However, the vast majority of dogs with hip dysplasia can lead full and active lives if the disease is diagnosed early enough and proper treatment is given and maintained.
