Re: sneezing chow

Yes, yes, yes! I scratch her back and she lays down. Before long sneezes and gets up. :D LEO also often sneezes right after leaving the house on her twice daily walks, too. Silly chow chow.

Re: Need sugestions for vacuums

Dyson, Dyson, Dyson. No bags, very sanitary, very effective. It comes out cheaper in the end. If you have carpets, go for an upright, if you have hardwood floors go for the canister model.

I board Leonora at the vet. She loves it there, and everyone there loves her. Leonora does not like other dogs, and they know that, no interactions w/ other dogs.

Re: what color will this Chow be?
