Hey Shirlee,
They are having woofstock this weekend at the mountain winery in Saratoga. It's a fun event. Wine tasting and lots of goodies for the dogs.

Hello All -

Please read the following email from UC Davis - if you are interested please contact Jennifer as stated in the email.  I do not have additional information and would not be able to answer any of your questions.

If you do participate, please let me know.  Maybe our photographer, Doug Mowatt, would be interested in doing a photo spread on the process if we have a participant to follow.

Dear NorCal Golden Retriever Rescue Staff,

My name is Jennifer and I recently came across your Golden Retriever Rescue website. I am currently helping with a gait study being conducted at UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Would you be interested in allowing us to use a few of your rescue dogs for our study? This particular study is attempting to define normal gait parameters in large breed dogs through the use of force plate analysis along with kinematics and surface EMG (electromyography). The goal of this study is to find objective outcome measurements that can be used to document improvement in dogs being treated for spinal cord disease(s), especially the Golden Retriever breed.

Currently we are looking for normal, healthy, Golden Retrievers that have no known neurologic or orthopedic disease.

All dogs must be:
    a) 1 - 8 years old
    b) weigh 18 - 35 kg
    c) able to walk on a lead without pulling
    d) free of dermatological disease

Dogs entering the study will have free neurologic and orthopedic exams performed. Fur will be shaved over the proximal lateral aspect of each limb (over the quadriceps, biceps femoris, semitendinosis, triceps, and biceps muscles) and small dots of tissue glue will be used for electrode placement on the skin overlying these muscles. Dogs are walked and trotted across the force plate several times once instrumented while receiving treats and attention. Gait sessions take approximately 2 hours to do and will need to be scheduled in advance.

Would it be possible for you to spread the work to your foster home volunteers? If you know of anyone that may be interested in participating, please have them contact me at [address removed].

Warm regards,
Jennifer Liang
