The Pit Bull Placebo

But wait!  This isn’t about Shibas!  It is, however, about dogs labeled as “bad” and the chronicling of their history.  This is something that all dog owners should be concerned about, as dangerous dogs – actually, dangerous owners – are a daily threat to some people and their Shibas, as Bella’s story amply illustrates.

Tierce’s Ears and Sunojo’s New Site

I’m still working on Nanowrimo; don’t know whether I’m going to make it this year, but here’s to trying!

Tierce is doing much better on Atopica every other day, but now he’s showing some hair loss on the tips of his ears.  ???  I don’t know.  I’m going to mention this to the vet on December 5th.  He didn’t have this problem when he was scratching his head off.

When I went to Sunojo’s site, I found that they have revamped it – looks pretty spiffy.  They also have started a new business up on Comox:  House of Dogs Pet Resort.
