    Unfortunately Charlotte had her tail removed before I got her (not sure if it was cosmetic or medical) but I feel sad about it and wish she had one. It also makes me uncomfortable in public when people ask why she doesn't have a tail, or why I removed her tail

    That's when you answer with "because she used to beat people who asked stupid questions with it"

    For me, her name was Abby

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    @Twice I work at the National Aviary, you haven't heard a stupid question until you've worked at a zoo.

    If you ever get the urge to see a short curly tail just come back and watch the video.

    I agree with everybody, keep that nice long tail! Tank has a longer tail too and I have never had to clean his booty, Bre however had a short pocket type tail and I was constantly having to chase her around and try to get her clean...ick!

    Here is a pic of Tank, you can see he has a longer tail, it looks broken in the middle though

    Here you go. Glad to hear you're not going to have it cut. She's a beauty.

    Jameson has a corkscrew that is fairly tight. It bothers him sometimes. I chose to keep it due to the vets warning about amputating... He said yes they do it for ones with problems. But can lead to problems down the road with going to the bathroom so unless its medically ncessary keep it

    Pan has a naturally short nub tail.

    When we first got her the vet actually checked to make sure it wasn't cropped.

    Every once in awhile we have issues with poo not getting cleaned off properly and have to wipe him. (I say we, but he normally makes me do it.)

    But I'm really happy to hear that you have opted to leave that beautiful tail! No reason to cause unneeded pain to our babies.

    Everytime I hear about how the tail is part of the spine, it makes me shiver to think about someone having their dogs tail amputated. Glad you're going to leave your babys tail the way it was meant to be alone. My BabyGirls tail is one of those screwed into the booty types and it's real hard keeping it clean and she lets me know. It would be a blessing to have a tail like your babys tail.
