I apologize to anyone that I may have offended. I was just trying to be helpful. I know that probably everyone on this board loves their pets very much and would want the best..so I was just trying to be helpful.
Don't worry about what others have to say...I feel that you love your dog very much and that you are taking good care of it. We are all communicating by means of fingers, keyboards adn open space. The internet! There will always be times when we misunderstand or just plain disagree, but what matters is that we can move on and get past that:-)
