      sas,
      So sorry to hear about your Berner. No, I never heard of any Berner being wired like that but I have heard of many other problems associated with the poor breeding practices of this remarkable breed. My neighbor purchased a Berner in downstate Illinois from some Russian breeder. They purchased the dog for a few hundred less than reputable breeders and they paid $2000.00 in medical costs for surgers in the first year due to congenital bone problems. Some breeders have no ethics, no concern for the dog or their eventual owners. I went oversees for mine. I was so put off by the local breeders. One had me fill out a 3 page personal history form and turned us down because we never had a Berner before, only mutts. My breeder in the Netherlands was fabulous and she gave me a seven generation history of my pooch. Inga flew in on an airline that transports exotic animals including racehorses. It was a tough ride for her but now she's a city girl and couch potato.
      Again, sorry about your dog..It's tough enough losing them when they get old...it's criminal what these breeders do to make the almighty buck.

      Hey I got one of those...BMD's, Inga! She loves the Prius. Loves to drool all over the back seat door. Recommend the vinyl seat cover for the back seat bench..It's a lifesaver with a Berner.

      I also have a March 2008 superwhite Prius and live in Bucks County. I may have passed you on the road somewhere...I read your post about the bumpers seeming another shade of white vs the rest of the car, and I agree with you. good luck with your Prius. I already have over 4,000 miles on mine after just 3-4 months of driving. I enjoy it!
