    Abbey,

    How many dogs have you seen with CT in the last year?

    How does this compare with problems in other breeds? for example heart problems in the various breeds?

    It's well known that CT can be a problem in other breeds than the Bedlington, but Bedlington Terrier Breeders are the only people who have pushed for testing to be developed and used ;)

    A key point not mentioned is that Kerries have a different coat texture to the other breeds mentioned. It is much finer and very much softer without any "linty" feel. It's rather like really well conditioned human hair! Also a good Kerry has less a curly coat than a wavey one, certainly not the dense curly Poodle coat or the harsher Schnauzer coat.

    The couple of Bedlingtons I've known have a much more "linty", almost sticky feel to the coat. The texture is also rather harsher and more akin to a sheep's fleece.

    And yes...they do tend to have have true terrier characters!

    Someone asked me today if my 2 were Bedlingtons. Didn't mind as at least they are terriers and grey too, they didn't mention the dreaded "P"word breed of dog. :grin:

    Seems a bit daft replying to a post from 3 years back, but yes, there is another Beddie owner on here - Me. I have 3 with number 4 on it's way next month. At the moment I have baby, mother and grandmother, and next month I will have 4 generations of the same family, so I am thrilled. Super little dogs.

    As good an introduction as any Oldgal - though I see you've been with us for almost a year. Anyway, as I don't think we've met;

    and Tweed.

    Thanks Azz & Carole.
    Azz, I haven't got a clue how to put a photo on. The dogs (and me) would all be geriatrics before I figured that one out!

    Took me ages to try it, as I'm a pc dumbo too! Just click on 'upload a file' and pull an image from your pc's photo files and drop it into the reply box. Scroll down to select 'Show full size' or you'll just get a thumbnail. Go on, try it, we won't laugh if you make a mistake.

    Hello and welcome.

    I agree, they're super little dogs and I've never understood why there aren't more of them about.

    Somehow I managed to get a photo on here and - seriously - if I can do it, anyone can!

    Well that's the best I can manage! If you want to see the picture in the above quote, I discovered if you click on the little square that says "image" it will open to show the picture.

    Carole, couldn't see anywhere that said "show full size". There was no page where I could scroll down even.
