So TWO big "this probably won't happen but" and I still had to ask the vet to make sure I'd marked the YES PLEASE because I couldn't read what I was signing after he explained what it was for. x_x

Squash had a chiropractic appointment today and he was the best boy EVER.

I recently realized that Squash was much bigger than I thought he was (I thought he was around 80ish# and he's really about 95#). Then yesterday I suddenly realized he was almost 3 years old and I got very weepy because MY 95 POUND DOG IS ALREADY ALMOST 3 YEARS OLD NOOOOOOOOO TIME MUST STOP. Then he did something silly that made me laugh and I hugged him.

I wish I could ask Riff's "breeder" what on earth possessed them to dock the tails on mixed breed pups of unknown heritage! I have nothing against docking, but they gave the pups pointer docks without even knowing if the dad was actually a pointer. Just... what? lol. TBH I love Riff's goofy tail but I want to know what the thought process there was.

Im glad I'm not the only one. I feel guilty because I've had so many great dogs and I adore Summer but Mia is just so special.

I wish I could ask Diesels 'breeder' the same thing. He is yorkie and poodle, both docked breeds...but both have longer docks, not nubbins like rottys which diesel has lol.

After two sessions, Cali is about 75% on her new trick. I just need to figure out a hand signal for it...

Kiba turned 9 this year... She is 100% my heart and soul. I don't know what I'm going to do when she dies.

This year has showed me so much more though to treat every day as their last, don't hesitate to give them one more hug... cause you really never know when they'll leave you.

Duncan -- a four-year-old Shih Tzu Poo mix -- is about 28 lbs and loves to cuddle and romp. Up to date on all shots, neutered, and micro-chipped. Enjoys nature walks on leash, and will do best with a fenced in backyard with room to explore. He spends time chasing the fish in our backyard pond, which entertains him immensely. Not a good choice for someone who wants a dog off leash while out and about, as he has a strong need to explore, but does well on leash and loves to hike on trails. He is more challenging on a neighborhood walk, as he thinks cars are one of the most exciting inventions in the world. We live on an acre, with one-third fenced in around the house so he can come and go. However, we have begun to rescue and foster and we are not able to give Duncan the cuddle time he deserves and so desires. If you think you are the right person or household for Duncan, please tell us a bit about yourself, your household, why you are interested in acquiring a dog at this time, schedule, and experience with dogs and/or pups. Any questions, please ask. Rehoming fee negotiable to the right household.
Um. You are rehoming your dog so you can 'rescue and foster' other dogs?! Wth?!

Who do you see for chiropractic, if you don't mind me asking? I'm just starting to get into chiropractic with Jack, and I'm looking for recommendations!

We saw Dr. Seefeldt. I really liked her, and we've gotten a lot of good feedback from clients about her.
