The nose and tongue are both good indicators of good health. The nose should be black (in most breeds) - not pale, cracked, or dry. If the nose is hard or the skin on it cracked it can indicate some underlying health issues.

I wouldn't use a cold, wet nose as the ultimate indicator of good health but if you see the nose *change* then that's a darned good reason to look deeper with a vet.

In Chinese medicine, particularly, the tongue is the better indicator of good health. If certain areas of the tongue are darker, or if the whole tongue is too pale or dark, or if the edges are lighter than the rest of the tongue or darker than the rest of the tongue each of those means something specific in Chinese medicine.

Gloria -- these posts on Canine Club aren't emails -- you know that, right?? Nothing comes to my email to 'tell' me there's a post.

The only reason there is a box for the email when you are typing a post is so your name shows in blue so someone can send you an email IF THEY WANAT TO. It's not automatic (like on some boards).

If you WANT to email me I'm telling you my email in words (because I don't want spammers to get my email -- that's one of the reasons why none of us put our email in that box above where you type a post - it's too easy for spammers to use it to send you junky stuff.

Read this CAREFULLY -- the spelling is unusual.

Use the "at symbol" instead of the word. Use a period instead of the word "dot" and don't use spaces.

LOOK AT HOW CRITTURS IS SPELLED. It's "URS" -- not an "ers".

But so far, Gloria I've not gotten anything emailed to me at all.
