  1. Nellie has been fine with most elevators, and we have stayed in places where she is riding the elevator multiple times a day and to some pretty high floors. The only time I have noticed a problem was in Kansas City and it was a glass elevator. Once it started moving that really freaked her out, but she seems fine with the others. Good luck and I am sure he will be fine.
  2. I was going to say Oak Island also. We went there in October last year and had a really good time. If you get a beach front place all you have to do is go over the dunes and you are on the beach. We rented through Rentals at the Beach and they were pretty fair
  3. Good Luck. Sounds like that may be what you two are meant to do together.
  4. We bought this one from Fosters & Smith probably in 2005 or so and it still is in pretty good shape. We use it for all trips and it does fold flat and has the metal tubing for the frame. At this point we just leave the door open and she comes and goes as she pleases, but it does seem to have held up well. Here she is crashed out in it last summer in St Louis after her run in with the cannons after the Cardinals game.
  5. Nellie is blowing her coat now. It has just now went below freezing here in Ohio. I am trying to remember if she has blown her coat yet this year and I don't think so. It has been a very weird weather year around here. We still have farmers trying to finish the harvest and can't get in the fields cause they are too soupy. Can't even get a good freeze so they can get out there.
  6. I can relate to that. We had put Nellie's stocking up but there was nothing in it. She would sit on the steps and look inside it and pout. We now hove something in it. she is much more relaxed now. They can be just like little brats huh?
  7. We just had Nellie's teeth cleaned earlier this year and she is 10 years old. We also had some X-rays and a mass removed from her belly. Our vet said that there is a different type of anesthesia used for older dogs. She came through fine and I am sure that your guy will do fine also. I would highly recommend the pre procedure bloodwork and EKG to be safe. I believe our vet used propofol on Nellie, which did concern me a little, but I trust our vet and knew he would do whatever he could to make sure she was ok.
  8. It could be the change in food. We had changed Nellie's food a few years ago from Taste of the Wild Bison to Taste of the Wild Lamb formula. It was probably a week or two after the complete switch that she started having issues. If the main protein source changed in the food, that could be the problem. We have pretty much determined that she is allergic to Lamb. Hope she feels better soon.
  9. Mojo coming from Ohio also. Nellie went through this earlier in the year and it turned out to be nothing, but was scary when we started finding the lumps in her belly. I am sure if you let him lay on the couch and watch the Buccaneers beat the Colts tonight that will make him feel better.
  10. I am so sorry. I am sure it was very difficult, but she knew she was truly loved. Run Free Josie.
  11. I am sorry for your loss. She sounds like she was a great old soul. It sounds like the rosebush is a great idea for her tribute.
  12. I was wondering this also the other day and spent some time Googling. Looks like she went home early July Here is a link to the story

  15. I am sorry to hear this. You guys are in our thoughts and prayers.
  16. I am sorry to hear this. We are having similar issues with our Nellie right now due to the amount of neighborhood fireworks being set off. She will go outside on her own, but it is basically out to do her business and then she wants back in. She loves our neighbor and will play with her as long as she will throw the frisbee and she wouldn't really go outside for her either. We are still having people firing off fireworks now and apparently have found some larger firecrackers, since something scared her enough that she had to hide in the closet under all of the Christmas decorations and old computers. Unfortunately, she had surgery last week and we are trying to keep her still so she doesn't pull her stitches out. If he is like Nellie has been in the past, once things settle down, he should relax more outside and get back to normal. I would recommend keeping him on leash or at least a long line so you will be able to catch him easier if he does bolt. We were in St Louis a few weeks ago and when the baseball game ended, they set off a barrage of cannons. We thought we would never be able to get hold of her, but she stopped in the middle of the road when the cannons started. I hope things quiet down around your place soon. I think there are a lot of dogs that could use a break from all of these things.
  17. I have seen a few more stories on this linked here and here One of the people commenting on the first story was there and indicated that there were not many local witnesses in the spot where it happened. They also indicated that they know who it is and are waiting on the police to follow up.
