What have YOU learned about deaf dogs today?

I learned that to a deaf dog, barking in the car is more than an art form. It's a necessity. I'm kinda surprised that you don't have more stories of people driving off cliffs due to a barking deaf dog in the back seat. Because let me tell you I was tempted.

Took Mini Moose to the vet today. My vet is fantastic. They're right around the corner from my office and I've worked with them for years now. Absolutely great folks. Top notch. And here's the really good news:

Mini Moose is heartworm negative!

This was a huge fear as heartworm positive dogs drastically increase the cost and length of fostering (Zoe wants him OUT of her house!). So really good news there. Full vet workup today and tomorrow he's going to have "his pockets picked" in the immortal words of Grannie Annie.

How'd the grooming go? What did they say about the cut?

No grooming. They decided (due to his literally bouncing off the walls) to get someone to help me hold him down. Then another someone. All told three of us are struggling to hold down this 45 pound dog.

So basically we're now looking at anaesthesia. Which he couldn't have yesterday because he ate.

I pray that he will be given a bath. That dog is so stinky it's impossible to begin to describe.

Yay on the negative heartworm... Boo LOL at the stinky.
