GREAT pics!!

The charge to remove a bone shard from a toe is ASTRONOMICAL  Get another quote from another vet- this is a toe not a hip replacement and should be a relatively minor procedure

Hardwood floors!!

A Pyr pet owner once told me that the Pyr is America's best kept secret- truly a wonderful breed to live with.  Especially with people being so busy- no having to play frisbee twice a day or 2 mile walks just to burn off some energy they are quite content to just quietly lay in the same room you are in- even as puppies.  Many people think they need a lot of land and exercise- NOPE they are however quite good at snoozing

It is so hard to see our companion's health fail.  There are things you can do to help her out that don't cost much- she should lose weight to help her pain  and be kept in a much thinner weight so that her rear don't have to work so hard.  You also could give her a buffered aspirin for pain and she should be on glucosamine daily a minimum of 1500-2000 mg- you can get this relatively inexpensive at Walmart.  You don't say how old she is but quality of her life is also important - if elderly you might want to thinking about helping her across the rainbow bridge

I believe that is a special gift- it is a grooming move that they give only to their most treasured companions.  Mine will do it on my arm

I used to feed it every day because they loved it so much- its a good supplement anyways-just loaded with vitamins  Or you can just feed it for a few days whenever they need it for their stools- Also works good if their stools are too hard

Congrats  Should be fun reading!

I would give him a couple of heaping tablespoons  He may or may not like the taste at first - mine take it directly from the spoon- everyone lines up for pumpkin!

How did your vet appointment go this week??

Could just be a lipoma- a fatty tumor that is absolutely benign

I think his markings are very striking! And I love his 1/2 white tail!
