Re: Indianapolis, IN ban alert

It's really a shame for everyone in this case. It's a shame for Indy pitty owners, and it's a shame for the woman who lost her leg.

This is why I'm glad I live in Boone County... no proposed ordinance... yet...

Re: Looking for heartgard

Look into the price matching thing. Sugar's vet, which happens to be a VCA, does price matching.

Look at Costco's prices. I know they are about 5 bucks cheaper than DFS on Frontline Plus, so they might be cheaper on the heartguard too.

Re: Goughnuts!

WOW...she must really be a chewer!! She's a pretty hard core chewer. She can destroy a compressed rawhide bone completely in about 2 days of chewing at work. It'll be really nice if I can keep her interested in this toy! Save me some $$$ :) http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s110/JokerGirlsPhotos/I...

Re: Goughnuts!

Finally drove out to Castleton and picked up a Goughnut Black for Sugar today. In about 10 minutes of chewing, it's filled with lots of nice little puncture holes. We'll see how it stands up ;) If I see red, you can be sure I'll let you know! http://i150.photobucket.com/albums/s110/JokerGirlsPhotos/...

Re: Pet Insurance, VPI Ect.

Sugar came with 45 days of free insurance through ShelterCare. I've gone back in to look at their normal pricing, and wasn't happy with how much they want per month, so I will just let the policy run out at her 45 day mark.

Sugar's gets a little pink on the outside tip as well. She won't be spayed until tomorrow.

Hunger Strike?

Sugar's been on a hunger strike for the last couple of days and I'm not sure why. This morning I can even hear her belly rumbling, although it could be gas. She's been at the vet a couple of times this last week while we got her cleared for spay, so she's had blood and urine tests done. I've got her...

The only disease you should really have to worry about is psittacosis, and even then the transmission rate is fairly rare. Birds are actually really clean animals even pigeons. Why the myth started that they are dirty doesn't make sense to me. They don't carry many diseases, and most of the ones the...

Ok, I just looked it up :)

It appears promising! And it appears Indy has a store that sells them. I might make the trek over and pick one up.

We'll see how long it lasts. Husband said 10 minutes.

So far there hasn't been anything that Sugar can't destroy. I picked her up one of the tire made bones that said the chewing level was heavy. It lasted about 5 minutes. That seems to be the trend with anything I give her... soooo I'm not sure what to do lol I can't afford to have her ripping up $10...

Sugar gets to do it, but since my car is a 2 door, she doesn't get a window of her own. I refuse to let her in the front seat. So, she sticks her head between my head rest and the side of the car, and somehow manages to get a good amount of it out the window. Luckily, this way, she can't go anywhere...

Just switched Sugar from the Science Diet Puppy that the shelter had been feeding her over to Kirkland Lamb & Rice. We've had a couple bouts of the runs, but she seems to be stabilizing now.

Still not quite sure why they had her on puppy food.

She was just dehydrated! Yay!!

We're going to wait a week, then test all of her levels again just to make sure.

She's always got water available, so it doesn't make sense why she was dehydrated, but who cares. She's more than likely fine!!
