I'm not sure if you remember me from a few years back or not (I posted an intro with Bruce to jog your memories).  For my public speaking class I am doing a speech on boxers.  The audience is my class of 12 and my instructor.  The topics are the standard, genetic health problems and responsible breeding practices (focusing on the breeding ethics published on americanboxerclub.org).

Would any of our conscientious breeders be willing to let me use a picture of one of their litters for my presentation slide?  I will give full credit to you and reference your website in my presentation (or not and only site you in my resource sheet that goes to my instructor if you prefer).

I know an email call out may be more appropriate for this but I only have emails for time is critical since the speech is Saturday morning and I didn't want to impose on anyone that wasn't comfortable with the request, especially since I've been out of the cyber community for so long.

Thanks in advance for your help   :thumbsup:

Christen, I didn't realize your speech is so soon.  I emailed Rudy's necropsy report to you and the info from Dr. Coates, regarding her DM/ALS research.  However, I don't have electronic copies of Abe's or Romy's necropsies.  I would have to mail a copy to you and I'm afraid they wouldn't get there in time.  I hope what I could send is helpful to you!  Good luck!

No worries Sue, what you sent was a big help, especially the DM stuff.  I really appreciate the help.  They didn't give us a lot of time on this....and I'm a bit of a procrastinator.

Sue and Missi, thank you both for your support .  The speech is over and I'm pretty confident I got an A.

And the best part is one guy came up to me afterwards and thanked me because he's considering buying a boxer and said the info helped him a lot.  So one more person in the world knows what to be careful of when finding their next pet.

I'm certain you would have gotten an A no matter what!  I know the way you work, girlie!  Glad I could help out a bit.  If those of us who have experienced the ravages of genetic diseases don't share what we (and science) has learned, our dogs lives and ultimate end was for naught.
