    I'm pretty sure I mentioned this in another thread (which I can't find), but our dog bit a neighbor a few weeks ago. It took me all day (and a 30 mile drive) to find a vet that would sign the home quarantine release. It states that the vet is responsible (liable) for the dog while in the home for that 10 day period.

    So this evening I met with the health and safety committee of the County Board. I told them it's ridiculous to make it all but impossible to quarantine a dog in the home. Our dog is 15 and I said 10 days in a kennel would kill him. I think I got their attention. I'll follow up the the chair of that committee next month and see if any action's been taken.

    HEAR ME ROAR!

    Last time I had a dog was in 2006-07. She was husky Shepherd mix.
    80lbs and had one brown eye and one blue. Had to put her down because of a huge cancer tumor on the very top of her head...

    miss her great dog. Couldn't keep her in the yard though. we lived in a town of 350 people, I'd get a call. Clementine, Clem for short is down the road. We'd go and get her...I think she loved it like a game or something.

    Yes ma'am.
    The only breed I've ever owned.
    Those are #7 and #8.
    I had another one, Max, along with these 2.

    I had to put him down a little over a year ago. He lived to be 16..almost unheard of in larger breed dogs...but a testament to good care and a loving home. :)
