Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I really enjoy rubbing my pup's muzzle and whisker area when petting him (akin to tousling his ears) and he seems to enjoy it. I have noticed lately, though, that his whiskers appear to have split ends. Is this detrimental to him? I presume I should discontinue the muzzle rubs where his whiskers protrude, but does anyone else have this problem, and if so, how did you (if you did) remedy this?

As long as there is no significant hairless around the whiskers or muzzle, I don't think it's anything to worry about. Split ends are a little common thank one thinks. I think dogs actually shed their whiskers every once in a while as well.
