Dasher Update

Well, it’s been nearly two months since Dasher was diagnosed with and started treatment for Masticatory Myositis, so I thought I’d give an update. I am pleased to say that he is doing really, really well.  No sign of the…

Masticatory Myositis

We noticed a change in our 1.5 year old Vizsla Dasher’s behavior a little over a month ago. For lack of a better word, he seemed depressed. He didn’t play as much and too often we found him curled up…

Dasher’s Revenge

A Lucky, Lucky Home

I am very, very happy to report that our friends Marty and Amy will be providing Lucky with a permanent home!  They have 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 3 ferrets, so Lucky will have quite a pack! He’s…
