That's all folks!
Thanks everybody. I diddn't realize how much I would miss him around here. It sure is quiet.

Our visit went really well! We are so excited. Unfortunately a couple of the dogs we were interested from the website are already adopted. There is a 72 hr trial period that they might be returned if they are not a good fit. She stayed about 1-1/2 hrs and we just talked and talked about Boxers! She seemed to approve of us and our household, etc. And she understood how anxious we are to rescue a lovable boxer to fill the void that losing Rocky caused. He won't be replaced but we can begin a new relationship with another lovable Boxer brother. There is an adoption day planned for Sat where we can meet a lot of the rescues all at one time and place so that is something we are looking forward to. I'll keep ya'll posted!

Thanks for the update PGM35, we're keeping our eyes glued to the monitor.
UNKLESCOTT - Yeah it sure does get quiet or different in my case when one of the two is gone. Before you know it Tigger will be back home.

In My Nest
PGM - when you go to the boxer adoption on Saturday, take a blanket or towel or something that has your other dog's scent on it. If you do that, the new dog can smell the other dog that he/she is going to have to live with before they actually meet. Just a suggestion - but I have several friends who have adopted pets recently and this seems to work well. I wish you the best!

I'm so happy that Tigger is going to be fine! Our darlings can sure make us upset. I was worried that it was CRF - and came running with a link for you.
Maybe someone else might need it - - - -
Although CRF can not be cured you can make the end comfortable. You can do sub-Q IVs at home. It is easy and really helps. CRF cats needs pepcid. 5mg daily. And needs help eating. And there are other meds for this. There are links for feeding and other CRF help groups.
When my Bianca was first diagnosed I went looking for answers. And this was the Best information out there!
Feline-Phosphorus-Management group, please visit
With in a couple of months Bianca's sister ShyAnn followed. Bianca took to the treatments and is thriving. But Shy although helped never had the full health. Two months we had to let ShyAnn go.
If I had not found these wonderful, loving, & intelligent folk I know that nether cat would have had the last two years that they have had. Along with the blessing of them, we have had the best Vet in the world. .
With Shy gone & Bianca doing so well I have so much free time. Shy was really my main focus for so long that I now don't know what to do. So I continue on with Bianca - although sad and upset with the loss of our beautiful ShyAnn.

Thanks doxie! That sounds like a great idea. With all the information we received yesterday about rescues and habits and introductions, that wasn't mentioned. Maybe we'll look smarter when we get there.

My cousin has two gorgeous Samoyeds. Both purebred. The male was just mated with a female from his original kennel. He is now the proud DADDY of THREE amazing little pups: two boys and one girl. I have no idea which is which but my cousin gets first dibs on any of them. These little ones are ALMOST as cute as kittens. I'd take them all if they stayed this small and could learn how to use a litter box!

That's all folks!
I went to the vet to visit Tigs today. He still might have cancer, don't know yet. He is in the first stages of kidney failure. He is eating. They put 4 different types of food out to see which he liked and he ate all 4 of them. They told me he's pretty quick for being 19 as they had to chase him down the hall when he escaped as they opened his cage. I'll probably be bringing him home tomorrow. I miss him.
