    I seen that earlier this week! Just horrid!! Vegas just stays at home, no dog parks or exposure to other dogs. I have a fantastic dog sitter that comes to stay at my house when we go away, like this coming weekend. It's just too hot here in FL. to go to parks. So pretty sure he will be safe. ..........Well I guess I do take him to get nails done at Petsmart and the vets, so he is exposed...yikes!!

    Yikes, that's scary. I'm OCD, Tyson doesn't go anywhere where he could be exposed or hurt. LOL Call it what you want, but that's me. Overprotective mama!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I read about this online too… so super scary. I don't plan on taking Wally anywhere, and we dropped out of class…

    How long do you think. We have that meet up at Rosie's Beach on 4/26 - Would that have cleared by that time?

    Well from what I have seen it's only been in the Chicago area… I don't believe it's spread anywhere else. Maybe call your vets office to see if they have seen any cases in your area?!!
