Weimaraner immunodeficiency disease was first reported in 1984 in Melbourne, Australia. As the name implies, #Weimaraners with immunodeficiency disease have one or more defects in their immune system, making them more susceptible to infections than dogs with normal immune systems. This disease is inherited, but the exact defects are not currently known.
A Springer Spaniel named Mollypops is enjoying a new squeaky chicken and some treats of her own for saving her dog mom's life in a most unusual way. Rachel Hayes just ate a piece of hard candy, which lodged in her throat. Choking, coughing and not able to talk, Mollypops came up from behind the woman and hit her in the back so hard that it dislodged the treat, in effect performing the Heimlich maneuver.
