That would be my guess. In the article they did say she had cancer twice. I wish her good luck, but I hate these articles that take exceedingly rare events and become alarmist over them.

Just back from the followup visit with Crash. Will get the blood results tomorrow, but he gained 1/2 pound in just three weeks. I had already sensed that. Seems to be responding very well. I'll have to leave him with my parents when we go away since he needs the meds. He has never been away. Hope that goes well. Their cat is a gently, friendly 10 yr old, but Crash can get ornery.

I haven't been on in a few day's. I've been busy. I did want to let you know about Bear. He had a seizure last Thursday. He's had one before about a year ago. It was either Memorial Day weekend or Fourth of July weekend when no one is around.

I had made an appointment for a friends dog because they didn't like the vet they had been seeing.It turns out they were right to change. Anyway I decided I was going to run Bear in right along with the other dog so that the vet would have a chance to examine him close to the event.

Bear's temperature was normal and they drew blood to check for a low thyroid level. It turns out that his thyroid level was 1.4 and the vet told me that normal for a dog is 1.5 to 3.5? I've gotten him on thyroid meds and he is doing great. He's back to his old chipper self again. So between the office call, flea medicine, blood test and thyroid meds it was $195.

Doug - you can buy flea meds on eBay or from a Pet Meds site on the internet and save a bundle. Hope Bear continues to do well on the thyroid meds and no more seizures! Also the thyroid med may be a generic that you can get a Rx for and buy somewhere that they are offering generics for $3.

This is Bentley...though we call him Rooga-Roo. He is the very best dog I've ever had. He is a mix of Dachshund and Pekingese. (We sometimes refer to him as a Dachahnese).

The cats name is Gizmo, he's also an excellent pet who just adores my wife and MUST be at the foot of our bed every night (or he'll drive us nuts meowing and scratching at the bedroom door).

Harper was not too happy when I came home without Winston...she wouldn't eat her breakfast, kept looking out the door. I guess she was thinking like Atticus, he wasn't coming home...it was sad.

Winston is home and did great. Sleepy as can be now but he ate and drank and kept it down so all is well.
Harper was beside herself when I came home. She was all over him, and not just in that "oh you smell like the vet" way. I swear she was truly happy to see him.

Abby on the other hand actually rolled her eyes and sighed!

I'll look around for the flea meds. I figured I would go the prescription route if it works, then I did a little calculation and realized that the vet only charged me $5 for a month and a half supply and a month supply would have cost me $3.50 at my own pharmacy. So the medicine was a few cents cheaper at my vets.

We still crate our dog, pit boxer mix, for anything but short trips out of the house. She's funny, if both of us are getting ready to leave, she just goes in her crate and waits for us to close it.
I left her out for a short trip one day when I was making Lindsey's chocolate favors, and came home to chewed up tape and the paper cut outs I made, but she didn't touch the chocolate!

Try looking over in the Pets group - I think that I remember people talking about Service Dog certification.

Well - the kitty boys are sick. Both of them have very low T4 (thyroid) and high ALT - which is a liverfunction indicator. The good thing is that BOTH of them have it, otherwise I would be very worried about Sampson who had radioiodine for his HyperT 10 months ago. We are starting by looking for parasites that Wallingford might have picked up on a walk and shared and then go from there. Wish me luck.

Have to share this - on my way back from the Vet in Stamford this morning, I stopped to look at a book store and walking down to the Orvis outlet I ducked into a pet store. There was a 4 month old ferret in a glass cage with not a single thing in it but a bowl with food and water. I could not stand it - the poor, bored thing! I bought it a cat toy - a hard plastic ball with cut outs and a bell inside. It was so happy to have a toy and rolled it all over trying to get the bell out. Totally made my day!

Well, I am worming 4 cats because someone licked a puddle! Wallingford tested positive for Giardia and everyone has to take meds for 3 days. The funny part is that our Vet works at a cats only Animal Hospital and she had to send a Rx to another Animal Hospital to get the wormer because it is only made for dogs!

Victor - one is a stray that I have been feeding for at least 5 years and Wallingford goes out on a leash. Holly sometimes goes out to hunt vols in the garden. But you are right, and I know that the don't really NEED to go outside - well except for Meeyow, the stray.

I need to turn my 8' x 16' deck into a giant catio instead of the little one the boys have now. In my mind, I am working on plans for the catio - it is just the $$ and logistics of covering the entire deck without putting holes into it. If I sold, I doubt that a huge catio would be a much sought after feature. LOL

Suey's class...dogs adopted from Little Guild, was second to last, so I had to keep her occupied for a long time in less than ideal weather conditions...very damp & muddy on the fairgrounds...Barbara Curtiss, the head of the New England Airedale Rescue was in charge & she brought in a real dog show judge from NY...this woman had adopted an airedale from Barbara...there were many breeds, from poodles to an enormous Great Pyrenees...no fights, but an airedale threatened a German shepherd...those bad dales!

Ronnie, you posted a link to a great article, albeit long and rather difficult to understand at times, I think on FB. That led me to find these 2 great articles:

http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/animal-emotions/201204/did-cesar-millan-have-hang-the-husky

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/08/31/opinion/31derr.html?_r=2&pagewanted=all&

Jerry took off on us tonight. Was gone for about half an hour. Don't know what he got into, but he came home with a bulging belly. He does this now and then. If our attention gets distracted, he'll just disappear. In this case it was on my sister's watch. She was outside with him seeing our dinner guests off and getting something from her car. Obviously she was distracted, and it doesn't take much. Hope he doesn't get sick.

Jerry seems to be fine. Probably got into someone's trash. That wasn't the first time he ran off like that, and probably won't be the last. Patches used to do it, too. Sure wish I could afford to put in the electronic fencing. Would make things much easier. Patches mostly sticks around on the property these days.

Jen, yes, Jerry was neutered when we got him. He just likes to go out sniffing at things, and he knows there's good stuff to be had out of trash cans and off of people's porches. He took a turkey carcass off our neighbor's porch behind us last year, and has come home with a loaf of bread from there, too. He knows where the good stuff is, and I have found him over at their house more often than not.

Jerry has done what Molly did to her bed. I stopped buying stuffed beds for him. I found a nice, fluffy blanket for him, good sized so it could be folded up for more cushion for him, and I have not had any problems since. He just loves tearing stuffing out of things. I don't get him stuffed toys for that reason.

I do worry about him, Jen, but the darn dog just totally ignores me when he gets it in his head to take off. He did it again this morning. Wasn't gone more than 5 or 10 minutes. Was across the street at the neighbors. He was outside with his dog on a leash. Brought Jerry over to the street. I kept calling and calling him to come, but all he wanted to do was play with the neighbor's dog. Totally ignored me. I had both dogs out to go potty. Got distracted by a weed in the garden. Had my eyes off of him for about 30 seconds, and he was gone. Didn't even see which way he went. Grrrr!!!!

With Jerry the tearing out of the the stuffing in the bed in his crate was not seperation anxiety. He just likes to tear stuffing out of things.

I think its the same with Molly, she just likes to chew. The owner of Miss Molly is going to have to step up to the plate and let her know that she is bad with a newspaper or something. Her owner "ME" has not spent the time I should. I am dumb so what does that make Molly?

Molly wont stay in the yard. Call her & call her she wont come. So what happens? She goes out, she is tied. She is getting better when Jim & I are out and keep an eye on her. I think time will tell.

I usually keep Jerry tied when I'm working in the yard. He does well at entertaining himself with toys while tied up, too. Sometimes I'll let him be out where I'm working, but there are times when I don't want to keep looking up to see if he's behaving. Mostly he does, but I just never know when he's going to get it in his head to wander off.

Patches I can leave loose in the yard. She pretty much stays on the property, although one of my neighbors came looking for me in the backyard to let me know Patches was loose and on the street. We live on a very quiet road, but still... She thought maybe Patches was supposed to be tied up, but I told her she's usually good and sticks around.

We are back from the Vet and I have a little baggie of kitty fur to add to my big bag - someday there will be enough for a sweater - or something. Sampson's insides looked pretty good - no lumps where there shouldn't be lumps. A small cyst that could have been there for years and some enlarged veins in his liver was all that we saw (I got to watch) along with a very active digestive system. So he and Wallingford (who has the same blood profile) get antibiotics and a liver pill derived from Milk Thistle for two weeks and then we test Sampson again. I make some tuna "juice" and let them start with that and interrupt with a pill and they get back to the tuna juice and all is well.

We aren't in an area that would need evacuation but found myself saying "I wouldn't leave the dogs" can't even imagine it. Harper would be so scared in a center with so many strangers.

Not sure how Winston will be, this is his first big storm. So glad they have large bladders!

Glad we don't have to evacuate, either. I couldn't leave our dogs, and Gretchen and my nephew Ryan couldn't leave their cats. The dogs would be okay in a shelter, and maybe Gretchen's cat would be, as she has no problem with the vet, but Ryan's cat Togi would not do well.

Here are some pics of the dogs from that walk at the conservation area last weekend.

They did. I just noticed that Jerry's head looks awfully big in that second pic. It's the camera angle. His head does look big, but that's exaggerated.
