made up story... i was told that it is easer for dogs to find new homes when they have a good story- basic marketing, i guess! I have not heard that. I'm inclined to focus on what I do know for sure... ie, This lovely dog is another sad statistic of rampant overbreeding and careless ownership...how...

have you called the vet? Check your discharge paperwork for after hours contact info or "what to do if..." In my experience shaking and food/water refusal are not so much problems as they are a normal part of the process of coming out of general anesthesia. There is one clinc that we used a number o...
