All is good. Izzy has not had any problems with the new ivomec. She seems to like the aloe. She had a bath and was good for it to just sat and enjoyed it. She is scheduled for a primary obedience class for the nest four Saturday mornings. They require the revolution. I will apply it early Saturday. Izzy is sweet and wiggely. Definitely full of energy. An hour long walk is just a warm up for her. The dog park here is mostly empty so she has had the run of the place. I just wish she would bring the ball back instead of just chasing it!
She has developed a small lump on top of her ear. Looks like a dog pimple. I think likely a small infected spot from the mange. One cat, Thunder, has approached within a foot or so. Izzy is interested and would approach him is she could. But she has been good at sitting while the cat is in the room. Our other cat, Iddy is not as tolerant and runs out of the room right away in most cases. She has twice stayed in the room at a distance, with cover, and watched Izzy intently. This cat has always been skidish, when we first got her she would not tolerate being picked up. She seems to be getting more tolerant with Izzy. She will take much more time and work than our other cat, Thunder. The darting out of the room does not help with keeping Izzy from wanting to approach her though.
So...All is good.Steve

Jennifer & Matt:
I think the crises is over. We gave him a little bit of cooked chicken with broth for a snack earlier on. He seems to have more energy this afternoon. This evening we fed him cooked chicken over kibble and he devoured it. Thanks for the advice on the chicken. I also gave hime a tablespoon of 100% pumpkin.
I will send you some pictures as soon as I figure how to do it. I know how to upload onto the computer and I know how to print them. I just have to figure how to get them to my email....If you have any easy instructions let me know. I'm sure I will figure it out. I have never sent pictures via email that I have on my computer before.
Karen.....PS...I have some great ones already....
We are doing well. Royce (who we are calling Harley) is following
Michael everywhere. Him and Bridget seem to be doing well together.
We will send pictures.
Harley is doing great. He had a restless night last night but seems
to be getting along with us well.

Laney was found wandering the streets back in August. It was obvious that there was something wrong with her front leg and she was taken to the vet to have it checked. It would appear that long ago Laney maybe had a run in with a car? Who knows really but long ago she had an injury that was never treated and allowed to heal on it's own. Her leg never did heal and how she suffers from nerve and other damage to that leg leaving it a dangling appendige that she is unable to use.
On Oct. 12th Laney made the first steps towards a new life, in a new land with new opportunities. She travelled from Boxer Rescue LA to Without Borders Boxer Rescue. On October 13th she was off for her life changing surgery and now Laney is a tri-pod. Now don't feel sorry for Laney! She gets along better now then she did before. Remember she has lived as a three legged dog for some time but need forced to live with 4 legs. Now that she's down to 3 working legs she can move no problem. She walked out of the vet's office less then 24 hours after surgery and jumped right in to the van. She's already mastered up and down the stairs.
With this surgery Laney has a whole new life ahead of her. Sure she may not be an agility star or your next marathon runner but sweet Laney can be the very best companion possible. She has a lot of love to give and is looking for that special family to give it to.
Laney is approx. 3-4 years old. She is fabulous with other dogs, both big and small and could probably live with a cat with little training. She is great with kids. She is currently in a foster home with 3 other boxers, 2 small dogs and 3 children ranging in age from 9 months to 4 years old.
If you are interested in taking Laney home please let us know!
We are also looking for donations towards Laney's amputation surgery. Please visit our website to help out:

Nice to hear from you! Nica is doing very well - she has lots of energy, is eating well and we have been having tons of fun. We are actually up in Whistler this weekend and just got back from a hike in the trails. She's a super happy pup and loves to be right in the middle of the action. She loves attention and is very sweet. Nica's been good with other dogs and only occasionally bowls me over when she forgets to stop running in the park! I'm so happy I've got her - she's a great companion!
Hope all is well with you. Attached is a picture of her on a walk in Stanley Park. I don't have many pictures of her loaded on to my computer yet, but I can forward more later on.
All the best - and thanks for finding me a great pup!
