  1. Just learned today that Embrace IS reimbursing me the required amount. They finally realized their mistake.
  2. Actually filing a complaint with a different state's BBB DID work for me. Different issue, though, because was a canceled riverboat cruise, not insurance related, where the company in a letter said I'd get a refund but then changed the policy and said no refund after all. Filing the complaint with the BBB got me my refund in that case.
  3. So, I stuck with Embrace for the upcoming year. Now I'm having a dispute with Embrace regarding Sheba's dental March 16, 2020, under the new coverage year. I paid $390 for a Wellness Plan covering $450 that covers among other things dental scale and polish and other costs required for the dental (IV catheter w/ fluids, anesthesia Sevoflo, penicillin injection, and antibiotic post-dental). For Sheba's 2019 dental, Embrace reimbursed me the total cost for the dental including the other costs; however, for this current dental they only reimbursed me $88 for only the dental scale and polish. Totally against what the Wellness Plan policy says ("It is a separate product from Embrace’s accident and illness insurance policy. Therefore, wellness claims do not have a copayment, nor do they count toward the insurance deductible"). I hope to get the Wellness Plan refund I am due and have threatened to file a complaint with the Ohio Better Business Bureau if I don't.
  4. What a lovely picture of Luna. She looks very much like my Sheba, who is 12 years old January 23. I am so sorry for your loss. Rest well sweet Luna.
  5. For those who are mandated to self-isolate or self-quarantine and those who are self-isolating as advised, it will be very interesting to learn how different hounds react when life goes back to normal and you're not staying home 24/7. For me, I stay at home a lot anyway, so for Sheba it will be business as usual, but I'll bet some of you will have to start alone training all over again.
  6. I'm so glad you'll have someone come to your house to ease Luna's passing. My heart goes out to you and Luna. Know that she is loved and you're doing the best for her.
  7. Sheba has been a barker since I got her in 2009. Mostly at me when inside but also outside at people walking by (I have a fenced front yard as well as side and back), walking their dogs, cats in the neighborhood, skateboarders, bicyclists, etc. I get her back inside when those occur. As for barking at me, it's for attention, I know, so I ignore her and she usually goes away and settles down. My sister was visiting this weekend and Sheba barked more than usual because we were talking a lot and ignoring her. She wanted attention, which I gave at times, but we also ignored her and she soon stopped and settled down. Just turning away doesn't work for me, so I put my hands over my eyes and that works. So, yes, ignoring does help.
  8. The Brinks truck, Loomis, or whatever the company's name is now, was at my local Publix store the other day. One patron walking in with me said, "he's delivering toilet paper and hand sanitizer."
  9. I'm so sorry but glad she went peacefully in her sleep.
  10. Where's the nose drip and drool?????
  11. Hadn't even thought about it. I typically stock up a bit before a named hurricane possibly heading my way but doubt I'll stock up for the virus. Hoping USA-grown and made dog and people food and meds will still be available. Don't want any foreign stuff if at all possible anyway. I guess time will tell and perhaps I'll end up wishing I had stocked up, but...
  12. Humans can get hypertrophied anal papilla; maybe hounds, too? Just a thought.
  13. I had an estimate done with Prudent Pet and the estimate for 12-year-old Sheba was more than this year's increase from Embrace so I'm sticking with embrace.
