GSD is our boy Sam who is a rescue dog and we have had for almost 4 years now.

His favourite play thing is my sisters dog ... Westie - little girl called Cooper (yes I know a boys name, but brother in law wouldn't call her Volvo, so guess his favourite car?)

Coooper is a terrorist of the 1st degree and leads Sam into trouble. She has him wrapped around her little paw lol.

I will try and find a pic of them together.

Aw thanks for the offer Andy, but I already have both.  My Twitter's hope2sleep1 and the Facebook's http://www.facebook.com/hope2sleep.co.uk .  Even got Linked In, but just realized I forgot to tell them on there.  Best do it.....

That will be brilliant thanks Andy and a great opening to the site, as I shall be spreading the word properly in a couple of days so more folk will be joining us.  Thanks for your support and help :)

Hope you sleep well too!

That would be BRILLIANT Andy.  Can you do it as a new Discussion please?  In hindsight we should have done the rainout one as a discussion too, but we're all still learning eh? LOL
At 12:40 on March 9, 2011, Kath Hope said…

That's great Andy, and folks on here will welcome your help, and a forum is also a very good way for people to learn more about their 'condition'.  We all need to support each other, although it won't be too long before we are joined by friends and family as the UK is getting more aware of it.

Great that you're a HGV driver too, as drivers are under the 'wrong' impression that they'll lose their job if they get diagnosed.  You'll probably also know much more about the DVLA rules and regs than the rest of us.

Thanks for the advice Andy. 
At 11:24 on March 9, 2011, Kath Hope said…
Hi Andy and so pleased you've found us.  We've only been 'on air' for a day and lots more people will be joining us as they hear about us.  It will be a friendly forum where people feel able to share their problems and give advice (like you already have thanks).

"If you are hooking up to the mains it is not a problem if you are in the camper van. I used to use CPAP in a caravan hooked up to the mains all the time. However, if you are in a tent, that is a whole new ballgame."
