Thanks for the information StirBlue.

I have to worry about one extra thing here that I did not have to worry about in California--heartworm. At least by the time I moved here, California did not have heartworms.

Well, the first time I took Little Guy out to go potty he came back in willingly (jumped in ahead of me, in fact). The second time, just awhile ago, he didn't want to come back in. I hated to leave him out there, but he was insistent, and since he really isn't mine, and because he had already started to chew on things and I need to go to bed, I went ahead and let him go. I will see if he will come in tomorrow. I think he has gotten more rest in here, which is good for healing. Our pregnant cat was in hiding the whole time he was in here, so I'm sure she is glad he is gone! She doesn't like Cubbie either, but she can manuever around him. Well, it is 5:15 a.m. I guess I should get to bed!

Oh Barbara, I'm soooo glad you took care of his wound. I don't care what your neighbor had going on he should have dropped everything and took care of his puppy. Either himself or taking him to the vet. I just don't understand some people...

Luckily the world has pet lovers like ourselves and I can only hope we make up for the ones who don't take care of their pets.

Cubbie is adorable!!

(for those who need to give their animal immunizations for things like parvo, you can buy the serum at a farm store or feed house for about $4. It comes with a syringe and needle and has to be injected. Most nurse friends will do it for you...it's not hard to learn)

Back to you Barbara L .........You're dogs are so cute!
We've had that program here and in Houston (called SNAP here) for quite a few years and it's great! Here it's first come, first serve and you just show up at 6am with the animal and then pick it up sometime after 1 in the afternoon. That's for spay/neuter, which is reduced or free, depending upon your circumstances. Then they have well animal clinics regularly for routine stuff. It's made a big impact on our unwanted animal situation here.
