  1. Just seeing this sad news. I am so so sorry. Kate sounds like such a character, the kind you miss everywhere you look. Godspeed sweet girl.
  2. FWIW, depending on the strength of the chlorhexadine it can be an irritant. We have some wipes that are 4% and can't be used more than every few days. In between I spray colloidal silver on whatever it is that I'm treating.
  3. My Jaynie and Vonnie both came from Teddy, a wonderful person and force of nature.
  4. She sounds like a wonderful person, my heart goes out to all who knew and loved her.
  5. Judy, it is so nice to see you here again, but I am so very sorry for the reason. Sending tight hugs
  6. I'm on my second Subaru Forester and love it. I will confess I liked the earlier design better, but the new one is bigger, so maybe better if you go that route.
  7. Thank you, very interested as I am exploring this for Vonnie, who will be 12 in January.
  8. One more thing you might bring if you have room is an adjustable baby gate to put in the door to the outside if you book a room with direct outside access. That way, no matter who opens the door or why, there is a barrier to prevent your hound from bolting. You want to place it a bit off the floor to gain height, but not so much that your girl can escape underneath. This gate is insurance only, you don't want to leave the door open and rely on the gate alone to keep her in.
  9. An auction is starting on Sunday, June 21, to raise funds for the OSU-based 4L4H program. Due to COVID-19 the program is in arrears, so the aim of this auction is to clear the arrears and ideally have money left over to establish a reserve for ongoing and future treatments. Details will be posted in the Auctions subforum closer to the time, but meanwhile, here are some teasers from among the 130 or so items donated to date (sorry the photo is so small):
  10. I am so very sorry your sweet Shine has left you.
  11. I like Trupanion. They are expensive, to be sure, although you can control that somewhat by adjusting your deductible. They have unfailingly done what they say in the contract they will do, and generally process claims quite quickly. My regular clinic can submit a claim and Trupanion reviews it on the spot, pays them their part of the bill, and I pay the difference. No waiting for reimbursement. Any time I've called them for any reason, they've been very pleasant to deal with. As with all insurance, rates depend on many factors, including where you live. I live in a very large metro
