Thanks. Reply to reply sent I think. I may have lost track.

We are collecting her at noon, barring any set-back, and have a referral to a doggie neurologist tomorrow.

I guess following consumer report's advice not to get pet insurance wasn't my finest decision last week.

She's back home now. "Normal" would be an over-statement, but she hasn't had a seizure in 27 hours on medication. We go to the doggie neurologist tomorrow. But she remembers the yard, her brother, the "sit" command, the "come/clicker" command, and so on, so I don't think there has been widespread brain damage, as I was originally fearing. She can run, but is still a bit unsteady.

Dogs are tuff and they don't feel sorry for themselves like some of us do. Keep treating her like her brother - extra squeeze or two prolly won't hurt but don't baby her too much now.

Have you or anyone near you spilled or leaked anti freeze? Ethylene glycol is found in many cleaners, mechanical fluids and rust inhibitors.

Thanks. We do worry about that, but the cars don't leak, and I use the non-ethylene glycol window wash fluid. But it is worth keeping an eye open for this, I agree. The main problem is they got under our deck, and I can only get around part of it, so there may be something that I don't know about. I spent most of yesterday closing every gap I could find. Of course one of the little monsters found another gap a few minutes ago...

Well, her brother kind of beats up on her, or do you mean I should treat her as I do her brother? She is the more cuddly of the two (goldens aren't lap-dogs, even as pups). So I probably do baby her too much.

Yeah. We are trying to get it back to normal, except not allowing her and her brother to play puppy fight for awhile.

I sit on the deck and Sibby paws at my hand, I ignore her, she lays on her side, I ignore her, she scoots closer, I ignore her, she slides her head in my lap, I ignore her, she keeps sliding until she is across my lap. I hug her and say "Sibby, you know you aren't a lap dog",,, she doesn't seem to care and neither do I...

I brush her at least twice a day and am still getting a ton of hair - were the hell does it keep coming from. Her hair is still incredibly thick - I had to shave the inside of her ears and the upper part of her cheeks so they would dry - she is in the water so much I was still worried about ear infections. They are incredible dogs and people seem to get very attached to their sweet selves.

I'm really happy she is doing better.

Get one of those horse brushes that is a loop of sheet metal with cerated teeth.

She just ambushed her brother, so she is getting back to normal. She does still kind of have a parkinsonesque shake that she never had before.

The brush I have has a half one of those on one side and a rake type brush on the other side.

Well it worked for Katherine Hepburn...

That's the kind of brush i used to use too, but I asked my groomer how they do such a better job than me. They use a brush that actually has little razors in the curve of the teeth. Ask them to order you one, the thing works wonders.

I don't want to cut her hair (what the curved thing seems to do) I just want to brush out the loose hair.

This just thins it enough. It doesn't look at all like I cut his hair. It just thins it and makes them look great.
