Help needed in NE, write a letter!

The city council in South Sioux City Nebraska is considering imposing BSL/dangerous dog laws due to recent incidents in town. Please help me out by writing to the councilmembers.

Thanks!!!

Went to my reg. vet today. She did a culture on Miras' ears and found a yeast infection. So we got drops for that plus some medicated shampoo. Also a good lesson on allergies which was good for me! I think at this point we will let Mira get a little more settled, on a better diet and see what develo...

On Monday I will be with my normal vet and will have her check out other possibilities. I drove HOURS to an adoption day to meet the dog, she came from boarding and it was noticed by the rescue folks on that day. I made the decision to take her with me and have my vet check her out. I don't plan at ...

Allergies with new dog

Our new dog has allergies. I took her to the vet yesterday (not my reg. vet as they were booked) and he took a look at her swollen ears and said "allergies". Gave her a shot and some topical ointment for ears. He was not very helpful as far as what to do at this point. I have another appt....

Introducing Mira!

We are on a "Foster to Adopt" at this point, but I can see NO reason this girl won't stay. I can not understand how this great dog has been sitting in a kennel with no home. She is PERFECT so far. I feel so lucky to find a rescue dog who fits in so well in our household. Kudos to MABBR to ...

Seamus, my male, was a natural, started swimming as soon as he saw the pool. Of course it helped that he fetches whatever you throw for him wherever you throw it, so he was serously just playing swim fetch! Susy HATED the water. We got her a life jacket, and gave her time and lots of praise and she ...

That sounds good. The vet just wanted me to drop him off and pick him up later and I just wasnt sure . So I will ask more questions of the vet and make sure I am understanding exactly what type of exam they will be doing.

Limping so X rays on Monday

Seamus my male has been limping lately after exercising (I'm pretty sure it's a joint issue) I have him scheduled Monday for xrays. Should I have both hips and elbows done? Anything else?

I would seriously try and get obedience training going, sounds like the pup needs to learn some boundries and manners! My boy Seamus was an out of control destructive machine when I first got him as a pup, and our obedience lessons saved us. The squirt bottle also worked excellently when learning to...

I have had expired dry food that I have received from my rescue grop for the foster dogs. It smelled fine and wasn't that past the expiration date and seemed to have no ill effects on the dogs when they ate it.

Well, the tomatoe juice remedy DID NOT WORK. What a mess and it did end up smelling like puked up tomatoe mixed with skunk! So in the wee hours of the morning re-did with the baking soda, peroxide and soap potion, it worked like a charm, and MUCH cheaper, easier to use and less messy. So, now I know...
