new pup  
Hi Everyone! I love comming here to look at all the pups! My Mum has been looking at some BostonX pups (crossed with miniature poodle). I have a couple questions I thought maybe some of you could help us with. The pup she has fallen in love with (that has more boston like characteristics) has a hurniated umbilical cord. Have any of you dealt with this before or know anything about it? I've heard that it can be easily fixed when he goes in for a nuter, but I wanted to see if any of you have first hand experience with it. Also, is it just an old wives tale that the more black a dog has in its mouth, the smarter it will be? Or is there any truth to this? Thanks for any help you can offer! EDIT: I have added a pic of my mum holding the pup!
I am feeling: busybusy

one of my dogs had a herniated umbilical cord which was fixed when he was neutered. it's a fairly common problem and it shouldn't give him any trouble. I think the surgical procedure is pretty simple. BT / poodle mix sounds really cute!

Our pup Bowie also has a hernia, from what we've been told it is a simple procedure when they're being neutered to just go in and sew it up. Also it could very well go away on it's own, I'm guessing depending on the size, Bowies' is very small.
We'll see what happens at that time too, shouldn't be anything to worry about though :)
