about the nails! (I'm not laughing at you in a mean way, just thought it was funny you thought she was born with a french manicure) Nail trims will need to be done at different times for different dogs-depending on how quickly they grow and how active they are. I think I have a diagram somewhere that shows how to and how short to cut the nails. I'll look it up for you.
I'm in Palm Bay Florida and used to drive over to Gainesville regularly to the university-my dogs were blood donors there. If you're interested in Bella becoming a donor let me know and I'll pass along the information. You'll obviously have to wait until she's a bit older but it's an awesome program with awesome people (and you get a ton of free stuff in return).
