    Help Brina find a new home

    Also, please don't offer her as "free" to anyone. There are lots of bad, bad people out there who do not have your dog's best interest in mind. They will make themselves look like the BEST choice for you, but often are a VERY, VERY bad choice. ALWAYS ask for some type of adoption fee and then...

    help me to adopt

    Hey, I just wanted to add one thing......Most people that work in rescue are VOLUNTEERS and there is alot of turnover in volunteering; which makes the people who run these things even more busy. Please be as patient as possible with them. They may lose your e-mail or your applications, but...

    HELP! Demodex question

    I agree with Jan totally. I WOULD be your responsiblility to tell PetSmart if your dog had a contagious infection or disease (kennell cough for example), but since he doesn't; it's none of their business. Just get through your last two classes and your home free. Re: Demodex. Been...

    Can Boxers Swim?

    Two of mine can swim.....however, not well and very clumbsily but my big male sinks like a stone. I walked him out into the deep water, carrying him along. He paddled while I held him, but as soon as I let go, down he went. Be cautious while you try and be ready for a rescue!! karen

    Vaccinating suggestions!!!

    In Cook County, this is only true if you get the "three year" vaccination. If you get the "one year" dose, you must do it ever year. Karen

    Kiddie pool for the furkids

    I found mine at an ACE Hardware; however, my three boxers wouldn't play/or lay in it. They would get their toys out of it, if they accidently got dropped in the water, but that was all. Karen P.S. They eventually chewed a hole in the bottom and that was that.

    I must admit -- I enjoyed it

    Last night, we had some crazy storms in the Chicagoland area. Although I feel bad for my babies because they get scared; I have to admit that I love that they get close to me. I was sitting up on the couch and Bonnie was half on my lap, pushing her head against my chest (and she's normally...

    AARP - What do you think?

    Below is an article that was on the AARP website on ways to spend your tax return. This makes me mad because it sends some really poor messages. Basically, they are saying, don't adopt a dog from a shelter, you can earn money for studing your dog (more BYB's??) and they didn't even mention...

    My first time volunteering (sad)

    I know....I sucks, but it's soooooo worth it. These guys have a chance because of you. Please don't let this turn you off from future volunteer work. These types of things are not real common. You'd be unlucky to every see anything this bad again. I've done tons of...
