Watchu talkin' 'bout, Snickers I've been waiting for YOU to write a book on the subject ~ if there's an animal emergency you haven't been faced with..I can't imagine what it could be!

Seriously now, this is a great idea! Hope many people will take advantage of it.

I've lost a lot of sleep over the past few nights as my neighbor's dog has been barking, howling and whining way into the late hours. I finally confronted him about his mutt's unusual behavior and he said has developed a medical condition and there isn't much that can be done about it. Seems he's become quite edgy and easily agitated.

I think they call it "Irritable Bow-Wowl Syndrome."

Yup, I need help.

Thanks Beth. I did text Dr Young today and she told me kids could attend. These are kids that are interested in becoming a vet or Vet tech.
