  1. That is sad. I suggest you contact them, and speak with a supervisor about the horrible way your claim was handled. My experience for the past year, new with Healthy Paws, is that they process a claim within 2 days, sometimes in a few hours, and I am getting reimbursed for what my policy covers.

  3. The 4th leg is a "spare". Within 3 weeks of having his front right leg amputated due to Osteo, Taylor was jumping in and out of the back of my SUV. He was about the same age as your boy, and a BIG boy (90 pounds). He had 4 once a month rounds of Carboplatin chemo, with no side effects. He loved and demanded rides and walks, 2-3 times a day. Every single day, for almost 2 years, until something else sent him to the Bridge. He was a happy, hopping tripod.

  9. Jagger, aged 11, came to me 3 years ago. He had been living with an old man in a high-rise in South Florida, and the man went into an assisted living facility at age 81, and Jagger was returned to his adoption agency (that I had adopted Taylor and Facebook from). Jagger came with a note from the daughter: "He doesn't like cats", and the adoption agency was told never to contact the family again. I can touch Jagger anywhere, hug him, but ONLY when he is standing. Same goes with anyone else. If he is laying down, it's OK to pet his head, but touch him anywhere else, and he turns int
  10. The bottom line, is when "boundaries" are crossed, and the dog reacts with a bite, the dog loses. You've gotten good advice. I hope, for the family's sake, you now better understand dog behavior.
  11. I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet, special boy.
  12. So very sorry for the loss of your sweet, special boy. You will be with him again, someday.
  13. Prayer for the Death of a Beloved Pet By Rabbi Barry H. Block O Lord our God, we come before You this day in sadness. (Pet’s name), who brought us so much joy in life, has now died.

  14. "Dogs and people with dementia often suffer from disturbances in their sleep-wake cycles. Those affected by "sundowning" sleep more during the day and remain awake, disoriented, and agitated throughout the night. Human patients with cognitive impairment become easily confused and are prone to becoming lost, while a dog with dementia may pace or wander out of the yard. These circumstances account for why people and pets with dementia must not be left unattended, especially in unfamiliar places. Dog parents must take extra precautions to ensure that their pet always has proper identification and
