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.
