Update

The night before last, Junior became ill. Jean took her to the vet, and they determined that she had probably been bittem by a tick, and had a rare neurological disease. She had to be put to sleep. One of the kittens died shortly after birth, and that left two to take care of. Buck, the big dog, has been filling in as mother as much as possible by cleaning them up, and generally watching over them. They need to be fed with a syringe about every 3 hours. Here's a couple of pics for you.

Yeah, they look healthy. The doc said if the mother passed on the disease, the kittens should be dead with a week. Jean really gets shook up when an animal dies. When she was a kid, she would walk a few blocks to school, and if it had been raining, she would pick the worms up off the sidewalk so the other kids wouldn't step on them. So I hope her kittens are okay, for her sake.

Ed, sorry to hear about Junior. Ticks are a real problem. We always keep checking Helga. The kittens are really cute.

Bob,

Helga is a real good looker. Is it a show dog? I love Shephards. We have one that's a mix with Yellow Lab. He looks just like a Shephard except for the color. The avatar looks great too.

Ed, So sorry to hear about Junior. I'm with your wife - I'm a wreck when an animal is injured or dies. Did the vet think that the tick bite caused the neurological disorder? Yikes!

I sure hope those kittens are OK - the are SOOOO cute!

Jeanie

No, Helga's not a show dog. But she thinks she is. Her father is German and mother is a US citizen. Great family lines but just one of the family to us. She has started agility school and seems to like it.

The picture is dated. She is now a year old and 86#'s. Can you post a pic of your dog? Love to see it.

Bob
