All in the Family
Scout Trixie


Border Collie / Labrador Retriever

Ace was adopted at the shelter for $7. As soon as we brought him home, he immediatly picked up on the simple things: his name, "sit and stay", and "crate!". About a week later, Ace became very ill. He would not eat and after a couple days, we had to take him to the vet. Upon arrival, they diagnosed him with parvo. After x-rays, blood tests, and more, they said that currently he had an intestinal virus, that-if not treated immediatly and extensivly- would turn into parvo and he could die. He stayed at the vet for a week, and still would not eat or drink. After several treatments, the vet said that if he didn't eat/drink, he could not receive the final treatments. Then they allowed us to take him home for the night, just to see if he would eat there. We got him everything: canned dog food, dry food, and chicken/rice. But he still would not eat. But, after a while, we gave him fresh water and he drank for 3 minutes without stopping. We called the vet immediatly and they were happy. We took him back and there he received a few more treatments. He began eating Bil Jac, an expensive brand of canned dog food, and then we slowly introduced him back into dry food. We took him home, and now he lives happily with us. Ace loves running, chasing rabbits and squirrels, going to the dog park, and playing with pretty much any toy. We love him very much. But after that vet visit, he changed from a $7 dog, to a $1000 dog!

Ace is very handsome and i am sure he is equally thankful for you saving him and his life. Pets can sometimes be very expensive, but i know that does not make me love them any less. lots of hugs and kisses always.

Cjp, I agree. You can't put a price on unconditional love, not to mention Ace's warming smile. He's darling. Hope he is healthy from now on and spoiled rotten!
