Well congrats on thinking along the lines of adoption. When I got Blue and Rolo 4+ years ago I adopted them sight unseen. Well, I did see their photos. Blue came from Alabama to Florida and there was some trouble getting him transported. Since it wasn't hot here in Florida I paid to have him flown i...

You can also do home checks for potential adopteers. I don't consider myself a "real" volunteer, but I've done a couple of home checks when there is someone in my area who has put an application in. I even take along Rolo who goes bouncing into their house and then flies onto their couch, jumps into...

What strikes me the most is how "wooly" her coat became as she got older. She's like a little wooly bear!

A sad story

Not Britt related, but doggie related. My husband and I were at the park today. We saw a homeless man with his dog and a few minutes later the Humane Society came and picked up the dog. The man sat there talking to the police and he was crying his eyes out. After the police left he was crying so har...

Cindy, Sorry it took me so long to get back. I was having a problem and couldn't log on the the board! Its been six weeks since Rolo's surgery. He's been a delightful patient, easy to handle and not too rowdy. We saw the vet last Monday and he said Rolo is doing "better than normal" and reminded us ...

Glad to hear the lump is gone. Lumps can be a very scary thing to find on your dog!.

Too funny. Blue is a counter surfer, but on occasion I've noticed him pulling down a loaf of bread and instead of him eatting it Rolo downs the whole thing. Blue is a fussy counter surfer, he'll pass up the bread in favor of the Cheetos.

Well since Florida is flat as a pancake we don't have a lot of hills here at sea level, but I bet Rolo would love to dance. He's always up for some fun.

By the way when I got home from work today he seems to be using it much more. Yeah little Rolo, keep up the good work.

Good post Barb, and I do know that here in Florida we can get a waiver for the rabies vaccine. Hmmmm, I wonder if I can get a health waiver for Rolo since he tore the ligament in his knee!

So far I've been doing some research on therapy myself and have found some good info. I've been thinking of buying a small 2-3 foot deep kiddie pool and using that as an underwater "treadmill". I'm going to go over this with the vet. I've also noticed that he uses the leg when he walks very slowly. ...

I don't think there is any "age" to quit vaccinating, one should really have the titers done. I stopped the rabies vaccine because I felt it wasn't necessary for my dog to have it knowing that he wouldn't come in contact with a rabid animal and I felt it was a health risk to keep the vaccine up year...

Thanks for asking Dave. I guess he's doing just fine. Monday will be three weeks since his surgery and he's really just begining to put his foot on the ground again (on and off). We were supposed to start taking him on short walks this week, but it just seems like he's not ready to walk on it so we'...

How sad, hope he's feeling better very soon. On a brighter note, one of the most favorite Britts I've ever met was a three legged guy who was adopted out here in Florida. He's one of the happiest fun dogs I've have the pleasure to meet. Quite the wild child! By the way, he lost his leg to a gator! O...

Ok Barb, cool down! Unfortunatly the vaccines are required by law. Its not the individual vets. Its the ones who are on the "board" who insist on them being adminsitered so they can "profit" on them yearly. These guys who make the decisions are making them based on how much cash they will get yearly...

Karen, fortunatly we now have a three year vaccine for Rabies here in florida. However with my last dog who would never have the chance to meet up with any wild animals here in the city, I just quit giving him rabies vaccines when he turned 5 years. When his license expired and I was notified by the...
