am so sad and angry to hear that-all at the same time! Condolences for your loss, and you ROCK for spreading the word!!

FYI tea balm oil helps against fleas, and it's not poisonous.

shedding

The dog is shedding his winter coat right now….a tornado of fine hairs that goes on for 3 months. So we brush him thoroughly twice a day, producing great clumps of fluff. And this year we tried an experiment and have been putting the dog hair in a net bag and hanging it up in a tree. The local birds quickly found it and are now collecting it and using it to line their nests in the nest boxes we put up for them. Neat.

so sorry Ted

having lost my Rex at a similar age earlier this year I am especially sorry for your loss, and the loss of all of us who are missing faithful companions at this time...

Honey has gone to the great beyond

My golden retriever, Honey, took a lethal shot of phenobarbitol this morning, with my son and I by her side. She'd been losing her appetite as well as her motor skills, sometimes waking up in the middle of the night barking, taking an occasional leak on the carpet, and suffering from a tumor inside her lip. She almost made it to her 16th birthday. Our family will miss her dearly. I hope she's chasing slower rabbits and squirrels wherever she is now.

Fostering!

Thanks, Mary, and indeed, fostering is a wonderful thing! With limited space in it's facility, Pet Refuge relies on a dedicated group of foster families to serve as many animals as it can, and I'm sure the situation is the same at any shelter anywhere.

And yes, some dogs decide that they just aren't gonna look adoptable at an adoption event--happened to my daughter and her fiance with a wonderful big black dog named Cooper, who they finally adopted themselves.

Then there are the extremely giving folks who become permanent fosters for animals who due to health issues or some other problem are not considered adoptable. In those cases Pet Refuge continues to provide health care and food for what is otherwise a permanent home. Big hats off to the people who take on that responsibility.

Pet Refuge is in Mishawaka IN, adjoining South Bend, home of Notre Dame University. And for the FaceBook enabled, Pet Refuge's FB page.
