Rescued two puppies

You can see the story here: http://www.pitbullforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=38785 To sum up, a kid was going door to door with two puppies in a huggies box asking if anyone wanted to buy them. My husband called me and we decided we'd get them, not to keep, but to save. We paid the outrageous sum of $20 ...

People don't always want to be educated and they resent your efforts to try. I'm surprised people who've spent any length of time on this board haven't noticed that already--go to any breeding thread and see what happens when people try to educate! :)) That is quite true.

I just had another thought.

Ya know, I think if the rescue that denied the application for Jasmine had explained *why* they wanted the forever home to have someone who stayed home during the day, I don't think it would be an issue. But for them to just say what they did, without an explanation, gives the impression that it is ...

When our puppy was recovering from parvo, I asked about the continued diarreha, and the vet said it was from the recovering stomach lining, just like MissK said. What our vet suggested was mixing a tablespoon of metamucil (or similar dissolvable fiber) in with every meal to help firm up the stools. ...

I showed my hubby the picture of Marvin... and all he said was, "You know we can't!"

I'm trying very very very very very very hard to not think of getting a companion for our baby girl.
