Sad news

Unfortunately, we were unable to keep Speedy. We found out he had heartworm. Probably because his previous owners never had him checked! Can you believe that?!? I'm more angry than anything else. I did notice that he didn't have a lot of energy, slept a lot, and this morning he was coughing a LOT. That's not a good sign. Unfortunately there are too many risks associated with treatment, and no guaratees it'll work, for us to spend $800-1000, so we left it up to his previous owner to do the right thing. It's their mess, they needed to deal with it. Poor little guy.

Please have your pets checked and give them the appropriate preventative!!!

Our New Addition

After about 12 years, we FINALLY have a new dog! I found him online and he was only 5 minutes away. His family can't keep him anymore since they're going overseas with the Navy. There will be an adjustment for all of us. His old family got him at the pound as a puppy and he's now 4 1/4 years old. He's very sweet and mellow, crate trained, and obeys basic sit/stay commands.
