Welcome

This group is a place to discuss common assumptions, "myths", less known facts, and other trivia, about certain breeds, rescue dogs, medical issues, etc. The topic is limitless (as long as it is dog related). No question is stupid, as a matter of fact, I am the leader of stupid questions and plan to maintain that title :) Just start a discussion about what you've heard or understand and others are welcomed to share knowledge, thoughts, and opinions. I want this to be a friendly group where people feel free to post what "they've heard" and ask questions so please be respectful of others.
