Berkley revisited-Warning

Many of you might remember when Jeff and I managed to save Berkley from an LA kill shelter last year. Unfortunately, I found last night that my email adress and home phone number were posted on Google, taken from a post about donations and getting Berkley from Los Angeles to New Mexico. I am stunned...

Re: If you want to know where we went...

Wow, Charles. You need to get a grip. As someone who hasn't even joined (your own admission) you came in like an unfriendly person who had no knowledge of the past goings-on here. Usually best to keep one's comments to oneself until they "get it." Perhaps doing some reserach might be more ...

Re: If you want to know where we went...

Just to make things clear. About Berkley, I chipped in with Jeff to get Berkley out of the LA kill shelter and subsequently spent hundreds of dollars on his veterinary care during the brief 90 days he was here until he died of that massive chest tumor. About Fozzie, Julia didn't "send" me ...

Re: when do chows stp growing

My "little" Foz-Bear is just 10-1/2 months old. I took him to the vet on February 7th to get him weighed and check for potential entropian. (No entropian, Julia!) He weighs 69.8 pounds!!! Monster Chow! He appears to be a big boned boy and built like a tank. I have to assume then, that when...

Sorry we missed the Big 2, Titus. You are such a gorgeous boy. A stunner, Jackie. I always love seeing his pics below your posts.
That birthday pic is so awesome, I'm sure you could enter it into some photo contests and certainly win something!
How did you get him to sit at the table like that????

I've already lost four cats to those b*stards in the past two years. That's why I have big-ass dogs, in...

I'm so sorry for the pain and grief you're going through.

I lost two Chows this year...Wal...

(My vet is becoming very knowledgable about Chows since she's treated three of mine now in rapid succession.) In ...

Thank you SO much for taking KoKo in!
