  1. Calvin thinks I should get involved in this. 😝
  2. I got my match, and though there's no info except the person's name and address, I can tell who it is so will be looking it up on here for dog name. Excited and hoping someone got me!
  3. Love it every year. So glad I remembered to log in today.
  4. Holy cow. Thanks for sharing. I hope she had another home and only recently got loose. I would hate to think of her alone for 12 years.

    This makes me so sad. I've been a fan of Lexie's from afar for many years through GT, both here and on FB. Having lost a dog suddenly this summer, in less than 5 minutes, I know how utterly shattering that is, even when you knew it was likely coming soon. My heart breaks for you, but it was her way of taking the decision out of your hands and going on her terms. You asked for favorite memories of Lexie. I would say mine would be the wedding, of course, but also the many many MANY pictures of her posing with food and in hats over the years. You and I actually were facebook friends for a while after a June a few years ago when you did a photo contest for her birthday celebration. (Her 10th, maybe?) I just loved her in the hats, and hearing the stories of her therapy dog exploits. The hat pictures also reminded me of BowWow Bonnets, a wonderful lady we lost a few years ago, who once sent me a couple of hats for my Robin's therapy dog work. She was a special girl, loved by thousands of people all over the world. May her memory soon bring you peace, smiles, and laughter to replace the tears. <3
  6. Searching around the internet last night about things to help Calvin's anxiety, as I often do, and I came across Purina Calming Care, a daily probiotic supplement with a specific strain of probiotic to help with anxiety. Apparently it came out late last year and it looks like it's prescription-only. It says it can take 6 weeks to see an effect, which is one box. The box is a bit pricy, $49.99 on chewy.com, but if you order directly from https://www.proplanvetdirect.com/ there's a $10 off your first order code. And I gotta say, if it helps, that's not so expensive that it wouldn't be worth it. Has anyone tried this? The reviews are surprisingly good, both on chewy and on that website I just linked to. I'm thinking it might be worth trying, but I was curious if anyone here had tried it yet. I've tried so many other things, and he's much better than he used to be, but I haven't found anything that really helped much, honestly. Thoughts?
  7. Hi there! I remember you of course. Sad to hear you lost your 'core' pack, who I remember fondly, but that is how it works with time passing, unfortunately. I hope all is well!
  8. Oh, I'm so glad! I'm always a bit nervous when there's no update and it didn't sound good prior to no update. I'm so glad he's doing well. <3
  9. Just seeing this today. Any updates? How is Milo feeling? I hope he's improved?
  10. Wonderful news. Congratulations. I hope she helps to heal your heart.
  11. I am so sad....I had hoped to manage to go this year.....but I will be having knee surgery and will still be in recovery at that time. No Gettysburg for me....it's been a couple of years. I can't wait to go back. Maybe next year....
  12. Yay! Although I prefer them in the post, I guess this will have to do. I feel like something went wrong with photobucket a while back, which stopped me posting so much. Vague memories of something..... hmm..... Anyway, Calvin continues to be my Wild Thing. And Sam is thrilled because even though Calvin can be too rough, he plays with Sam. And likes to chew on his legs and ears. He's such a mean thing. They have become quite a pair since Sam has been here. Here are a few more pictures of the best boys ever. https://www.dropbox.com/s/5uxmi7aqzbqi9kb/2018-09-25%2017.34.18.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/io8bs7ogf7z6eog/2018-12-03%2018.35.41.jpg?dl=0 Thanksgiving Dog Party! https://www.dropbox.com/s/8amjekbh64jmgkx/2018-11-22%2017.54.06.jpg?dl=0 Here's Sam, Calvin, and their galgo friends Iraya and Jordan https://www.dropbox.com/s/98vrvyf6309w1cc/2018-11-21%2013.23.12.jpg?dl=0 Thanks for looking! <3
  13. I'm interested to see if sharing a photo directly via my dropbox will work. Here goes: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0z3d1jenf7emgmc/2018-11-25%2014.28.10-1.jpg?dl=0 If you get the link and can see the picture, let me know! The greyhound is my Calvin....the golden retriever is my mom's dog Sam, who has been staying with us on a semi-permanent basis. If this works I will post more. ; )
