Re: How the Hank Turns

Thank you! It was hard with my dad but he doesn't quite get the 'pets are people too' concept. All he sees is that the dog was ill and it was time and although it hurts, you do it and get on with...

Re: Annie - Getting too smart!

I think you do need some more clarification on what the vet meant with his words. Small growth, tumor, lump, etc...all could be bad...but all could be good, too! I know Hank had odd lumps here and...
